He traced the history of his company in the province, stating that at first they built 15 elevators and their efforts were discouraged, but that now more elevators .were needed all the time, and they could not build fast enough. He criticiz.-d the delay in loading by the farmers, and also the delay in unloading by merchants and coal and lumber con- signees. He stated his 'company would do anything in reason to help out the farmers. On being question- jd by farmers the chairman had to admii that although the C.PiR. had promised to have a representative present, they had-sent no one, nor had they sent any information at .all.. Thejieeling as stated by--several, speakers, was that it was no use try- ing to- dc anything unless 'the C.P.R. took the initiative and made a pro- position to the fanners, and also that it would be a mistake to waive their privileges under "the Grain Act.
