RAILWAYS MUST HI7 rt A mn KAlfi WEEPING RULING IN FAVOR OF WESTERN CANADA, BY. D'ARCY SCOTT Toronto Ma) bearing If Wlutla of Winnipeg counse1 toi he Dominion go; eminent present el borate tables of figures showing the normous discrimination against 'the in freight rates, running In sonie ages to over 250' per cent., ths rail- commission decided today that he onus must 'be placed on the rail- and they am t justify their Mag western freiglu rates. The in uiry, however, will not stop at that, ifter an. interesting legal, content. Mr. Vhitla and James Bicknell, K.C.. the ;overnnient counsel won a decided vic- ory bj securing a ruling that eveiy ibase of the: freight rates TViII.be in- estigated, not only the question of iscrlmlnation .against the necessary, the reasonableness of the ibt as well as 'Ire and the gen Hal basis upon which they were es ablished. The railway, counsel tried hard to fonfine it to merely the qne tlon of liserimimtion which was raised by >I K Cowan KG counsel for Al lerta and Saskatchewan anj objected 0 it going any further., Tbls Mr. Whit 1 and Mr Bicknell oppos d and finally won a signal iicton ihieb in the end may mem much to ho western shipper and consume! The date tot the next sitting when the railways will assume the. onus of justification was not fixed, hut it made very .clear that there must >be no delay, arm railways are to give notice by May 21 when ttray can pro- ceed with the case.' Most-Important Case Yet 'This is tho most serious-and im- poitanj case the board'has ever con- BideiedA'sald we want, to give- the railways sufficient time but ,Tvp have started this inquiry, and werjvant t6' stay with the job. We wii: ghe you until'the next sitting of-tho board, May 21, to prepare for the case and notify us when you are ready to proceed." '.An interesting development of the investigation was tbe fact that the C. P. K. piesented to Mr. Whitla tables' alleging to be the revenue and oocrat- ng expenses Of recent years, which were found- to be entirely different rpm the tables presented when tho Vancouver rate case was before the )oard. The new. statements, Mr. Whit a showed, increased the total operat- UK .charges' on all th-a various divi- sions; in one case, the Winnipeg .div- ision, 'by an amount no less than 000 Tbe .new tables also increased! the expenses per mile by no less tban 5428 p-ar mile on one section. Mr Whitla pointed out that it was very strange that two such strikingly different statements should ho p're- sented. Mr. Chrysler, counsel tor the iaii- wajs said they would explain the dif- ference in ,due time, but vouchsafed no information to the board today.
