Mr. Wattera eubralttod that the government was havln* mall carried at losS than,cost and urged that transportation passoH should be abollnhcd.

I'hlpperi, counsel for tho Canadian Northern, rovlowod tho olroum-'tances whlcb led to tho order of tho railway commlBsloner.s authorizing tho Incroaae in railway rntos. SInco 1911, he said, there had been a continued Increase In tlio cost of operating railroads. Tho ('ompnnies'. hoping that the Increase would prnvo more or less temporary, utrugglod with It as best they,could \intll about a year ago. Then oofrts toolt a leap upward. The companies saw unlosH that they had .lOTno relief. It -wo-uld bo linpossible for them lo most their ob!iKnllon. in an unusual manner the net earnings ot tlie road during tho last six months had 'been decreasing, the decrease ranging all tlio way from fiVi to 57 per cent- During the same period the groBB earnings had Increased. Conditions were exceptional. For Instance the C.P.Il. bad made a lot of money transporting coolies, whom so m|ich had been said about, across tho continent by tho thousands. This was re class of busInoBS which would not come back. "Unt tho coolies will," Interjoited Hon. .Mr. Molgben. The Bltua,tlon In regard to operating coBtfl, M-r. tJeatty argued, was serious. Like other companies, the C.P.R. was starving for steel; tho road was short of man power which made operation much more difficult. "Ws are but one of a number of carriers," be added. I'Wo are entllted to charge the .lame for our rates as any one else so long as tho rat�s are not unfair." �> Mr. RoWell asked how the increase In rates grunted by the Interslate commerce comnilsalou to American lines compared with the proposed Increase In Canada. . Hlflhef Than In Canada .T. E.' Dalryniple, vice-president ot the O.T.R., In charge Of traffic, replied that If tho present increase were granted there would still bo on "advantage to the American,lines east of Chicago of approximately ten per c^nt. The application for Increased .rates west of Chicago had not been granted by the Interstate^ comme'rce connmlsslon and w/is now only being considered. In reply to Mr. Crerar, Mr, Dalrym-' pie declared that the present American rates west of Chicago were blgher than those In the Canadian west. Mr. Carvell asked bow^ U the roads wore operated by the government, as suggested by the petitioners, Increaaed operating coMg could be met, unless there were Increases tn rates. In reply, E. D. Martin, chairman ot the shippers' section of the Winnipeg board of trade, said that It all the railways wore operated during the war as one unit, there would be a very considerable saving. If, however, it was found that the increased coat of operation was npt met, the suggestion was {.hat a war tax should bo Imposed on freight and pasBonger traffic to meet the deficit. ' \ All Road* Under Government )^\v. Melgiien-Then your plan would include the Incorporation of the CP. R. with the other roads? /  Mr. Martin-Yes, tor the period ot the war. I am under the impression that during, tbo war, the operations oC tho railways would be sate In the hands ot a boai-d appointed by the government. H. J. Symington, representing the provincial governments of Manitoba, Saskatchowan and Alberba, the Winnipeg board of trade and other petitioners. In his reply claimed that In-creased rates, even It granted, would not aneet the situation. Mr. Symington ht�d not concluded bis argument when, the council adjourned until 2:30 o'clock this ivfter-noou. WOMAN SAVED ' MUGHSUFFERING By taking Friend's Advice and Lydia E.
