Wright, of Champion, was in the city today'and reporti a serious car (shortage at that point. There are about 850 cars on order, the elevators filled and formers neat- ly through threshing. There will bo nearly a million bushels, to ship from Champion, and at the rate the C.P. R. is moving it at present there will be grain at Champion for some timo to come. There were exactly four cars for Champion in the past week. About SO cars have been received so far this year, but Champion was one of the first points shipping grain. Mr. Wright says Newman Brothers shipped three cars to Fort William and were given No. 1 hard, no dock- age. That is a sample of the grain around Champion this year.
