NOURSE, Manager Ottawa, Marcli of newspapers from the Atlantic -to the Pacific were before the railway com- mission in regard to 'the question of telegraph rates in News despatches ac- cording to tariff the railway commis- asked on a per word basis which [eastern publishers have taken excep- tion, to on ithe ground that" 'they do away with flat rates which have ex isted in the past. Thirteen publications had each a rei resentative, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Re gina, Fort William and Vancouver be ing represented from the The C. P. R. Telegraph Co. was rep resented by James Kent, manager; W Camp, electrical engineer and W. H Beatty, counsel, -the Canadian North ern Telegraph by F. H. Phippen, Win n.peg. Mr. Hearty, on behalf of the C. P. R., argued that >in the past telegraph com- panies had been free to make such contracts as they desired. If it was now proposed to put the rates on a) scientific basis it should be based on a basis where 'there should be profit to companies. George Henderson, K. C.T on behalf of the eastern publishers, said he could find nothing in the ruling of the board respecting the W.A.P. which would ap- ply to the east because there was but one pres association. Chairman Mabee said that under the railway act it might, be possible -to al- low all flats. Phippen argued that there was noth- in in the railway act to justify flat rates. After some further discussion it was decided that the eastern publish- ers should show a cause why the tariff rates should not be applied east of Fort William. Chairman Malice stated that while the arnr.gument was not yet clear in his mind he thought it would be pos- jsible to put matters on such a basis that newspapers would only pay for Earl Grey and President Taft, Breakfasted Together Edmonton, Mar. view of the exceptionally early spring contractor? are busy preparing for early start on railway construction and within the next.'week or two construction will be started o'n four lines of railway 'tribu- tary -to this city.
