The most imr portant business down on the. docket was to pass the resolutions from the local board to. be presented at the convention- which takes place .at Sas- katoon next June. The, committee on resolutions however did not meet and consequently there was nothing to come ibefore the meeting. It was decided to call this committee to- discussion, was asked his opinion. He said that under the conditions which the company had to work in the West, the rates were favorable, compared with any other company. In the East, rates were cheaper on account of many cars returning emp- ty from Port Arthur and these were with coal for Winnipeg. and yet a statement thatjvears. yQ-u wiu deal, gether to arrange the resolutions and Ottawa, Ont., April 30. of the western members of the Com-j and the Dominion government, mons had an informal inta-r-.ewj What They Know About with the Hon.
