Now following- down the columns showing" the rates from Lethbridge and from Taber the above looks quite innocent.

Eastward of Coleridge the demand, or market, increases though the dif- ferential decreases. We are informed that the old rate J had a flat differential rate from Lethbridge and Taber to points west and north. It happens whether accidentally or not 'that this differential now handi- caps Taber more than Lethbridge. The new rate differential going west' X and north is small to points of small i consumption and large to points of 11 large consumption. Compare, High River and Cayley, compare Calgary and Aldersyde. While again going east Taber is handicapped again. The differential rate to'all points as'far east as Seven Persons is 40 J cents, which favors Taber where con- sumption "is small. But where con- sumption increases it so happens that the difference in rates decrease. It is quite probable that these pe- culiar rates favor Lethbridge only because of an accident or oversight in preparing them. But that makes no difference in the handicap which Taber. can't help but feel. I J. I.
