Board Of Trade Executive Had Spirited Debate-Statements Not Forth- coming-Slow Delivery The executive council of the Board ef Trade had a spirited debate at its weekly luncheon in the Alexandra Cafe yesterday afternoon, in regard to the complaint made three weeks ago by one or two members that great dif- ficulty was experienced by merchants ia getting freight claims against the railroads settled within reasonable time of the filing of claims. The debate arose out of the reading of the minutes of the previous meet- ing, and Secretary McNIcbl read ov- er air the correspondence that had taken place ia the matter between the board and the C. P. R. At the time the complaint was made to the board, a letter was ordered sent to the Claims Agent of the road at Cal gary asking if claims could not be set- tled with.' greater dispatch. He re- plied asking for specific cases of de-L LU1U lay. When his reply was receivedj President, members of the board were asked to file any complaints they might -have with the secretary, but none were fil- ed. Since then, a letter was received from First Vice-President William Whyte, of .the C. P. R., who had come across a news item in a, local paper He over an' look ai.tkta one.' It is -cm. kind o' odd, but it's in this i s naznber, so Ifa sure to be in rle. The picture'! awful pretty, but s's tall an' kind o' thin, to a x unky person wouldn't look like -uch.

The only instance where there might be some cause to complain was in the case of the Mc- Keown Hardware Co., which was the case complained of in the first in- stance, but it was for so small an. am- ount that he hardly thought it worth bothering about. President Nourse expressed the op- inion that the board had entirely fall- en down in the claim it had made to the .company. Mr. McKeown argued that they had not, and said that sines he had first made.'his kick to the board, C..P. R. officials by the score had been into his office all anxious to get his com- plaints remedied. He argued that he had given names of people who had bigger kicks -coming than he had, to Secretary McNicol, but the latter gen- tleman had not looked them up. Sec- retary McNicol replied" that he had called on the two people mentioned, but had not been able to find them In. President Nourse declared he held no brie! for the C. P. R., but he be- lieved they would have'to crawfish and take back the complaint they had made to the railroad. Mr. McKeown replied hotly the matter, oiid Mr." McKeown asked the meeting not" to understand that he was not asking the board to collect a debt. He was quite capable of collecting his own debts. He had merely brought the matter up in the Interests of :he public that they might know the right way of going about getting tneir claims acted upon more President Nourse still maintained that unless they could bring specific cases they must fall down. U. Rylands moved a motion that Mr. Mc- Keown be appointed a committee of one to look into the matter and re- port. "I am not a detective. Let the sec- retary attend to It. Let him see some of the men I told him replied Mr. McKeown, and he continued: "i don't, think you understand me, Mr. Now I've had all this cor- respondence {producing a. large bun- dle of letters and papers) all over one little item of ?2.50. I had a ship- ment of pumps the, other day, some of wnich were broken. I had to pay Capping the Climax, did Mrs. Jagsby come lc her "She foil .out of the window about noon yesterday." "I'm not surprised. That woman is falling out about something." The worst ihing doing some rien a good turn is thai they seem to tne board did not have to crawfish, for.every complaint that had been made substantiated.' It was not the amount of the claims he .that he fighting for, but the prin- ciple. He was fighting for the ben- efit of all the merchants In the city. C. F. P. Conybeare, K. C., remarked that the railroads always when part of a shipment was damaged or lost in transit, demanded payment in cash for the freight of the whole shipment and it had to be paid for before the undamaged parts were removed. You could put in your claim afterwards, and if you were lucky received your money six or seven months after- wards. His office had previously had considerable difficulty in getting claims settled until they had notified the C. P. R. that were settled within 30 days of being filed writs would be issued, since when they had not had to issue a writ once.] The point he emphasised was that the' ordinary man has just as much rightj to demand spot cash from the C. P. R.' as the C. P. R. has from the ordinary man. President Nourse argued that that was not the point J specific freight on the bunch and they tell you to send in yo'ur claim, ajad you can't live long enough to get paid. I claim it is the duty of this board to see if it cannot get claims settled more ex- peditiously thanAat present." After considerable further discus- sion, the matter was laid upon the table for a week, arid parties having claims were asked to file them with the secretary in the mean time. Delay at Freight Sheds. F. Sick, of the Lethbridge Brewing and Malting Co., presented a petition which he had addressed to the board of railroad commissioners complain- ing about the delay caused shippers and receivers in. getting goods from the freight sheds. Teams and toim- sters are often kept waiting for -hours at a time. The petition was signed by a number, of firms, but Mr. Sick said that he would just as soon it was sent to some .officials of the road who would see that matters were remedied as to the commission. With his con- sent, the petition was filed and the secretary instructed to take the -mat- er up with the general superintendent. The secretary was also Instructed to take up with the customs'department the matter of having the bonded room at the freight sheds open'more hours a day than at present? During the discussion in connection with the it was pointed out that the .business of the R. had almost ''doubled within the past year, and where a year ago ttey were handling cars a they were'now handling The following letter from W. B. Lanigan, assistant freight manager of the C.
