The Canadian Press has gathered the following edi- torial comment ou the decision ot the railway commission on the freight rates case: TORONTO WORLD: "The railway commission has. nothing to do with the fact, 11 it be a fact, that compens- rates for the Canadian National means excessivo rates for the Canad- ian Pacific. The rates must he uni- form and If they result in eicess profits for the Canadian Pacific that will present a problem calling for so- tlon by government and parlia ment."

STERLJNQ EXCHANGE clsion will be appealed Is as certain as tomorrow's sunrise. We shall see then whether the little group of finan- ciers who control the Canadian Paci- fic are more powerful politically than the Industrial and commercial inter- ests which are up in arms against this utterly unexpected decision." VANCOUVER SUN: "In the new- railway rates Vancouver and coun- try west of the .Rocky Mountanis seem to have once more received the tumble that conies to the end man when the whip is snapped. The plea that a system of equalization in transconti- nental freight be established has been ignored. The railway board with broad "eastern vision" has tipped'the scales even further iu favor of the eastward movement of crops and com- modities. The discrimination against :he coast has been increased." VICTORIA TIMES: "An increase in the railway rates in Canada as a result of the application, of the rail- way companies to the Board of Hail- way Commissioners was generally ex- pected, but It was .hot'anticipated that it would be as. high as'forty per cent: in tho east and thirty-five cent, in the west. "Thirty-five and forty per cent, ad- ditions lo Iransportation-cc-'sts impose a very great upon tho country, for. after all, it is the country generally wliich must payit. It must Increase the cost ot living" and inevit- ably the cost of production at a lime when for every sound social and economical reason these two shoult be on the decline.1' SASKATOON STAH: costs tremendously and It was neces- sary, it the roads were to continue in operation, that they find more rer- enue. The only source Tor the rcrenue to come- from 'was the people, and thus' the' yiclo us .circle ot high cost of living ..continues. Tho Increases just granted are, fortunately of a temporary nature But they will lie In operation long enough to make themselves felt everyone." .EDMONTON JOURNAL: "It can- not ho said that the extent to which the commission has granted the com- 1 panies increases asked for occasions; any surprise. They had already grant-; ed one increase this year, but it was an almost foregone .conclusion that the whole of tho Increase asked for would be granted." Keep It Quiet VANCOUVER, Sept. The British Columbia branch of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association will not niako public the ciintentlons which the association proposes .to make re- garding the tariff when the tariff com- mission sits here September 20, It was stated last night after a private meet- ing of the association. Too Close to East RBG1NA, Sept. Major F. J. James, former president of the hoard of trade, said that he 'was disappointed :hat the increase for llie west was as. close as the east. He hoped that ttetween now -.and December 31, 'tho whole question will, he thoroughly gone into and the discrimination re- moved. He thought the increase In I passenger rates fair, and also on par- lor and sleeping cars, hut thought that some advantage might have been given thb public who travel cars. P. M. Anderson, K. C., said that In his opinion the decision ot the Board of Railway .'Commissioners came as a distinct disappointment to the west.

REGINA MORNING LEAW3R: 'With the exception of a slight con- cession to the west, the hoard con- ceded substantially the demands of Ihe companies. The increased freight charges will doubtless he made the reason for some ot the disproportion: ate increases of retail prices which almost Invarlrihlv .result from llie tribution ol Increased freights on bulk shipments over small parcels or indi- vidual articles. The judgment of tlte railway commission formally recog- nizes that has been discrimit nation against tbo west In freight rates. It recognizes also that the conditions which justify increased rales are, or ought to he, temporary. But it floes not 'appear to have de- termined .that the C. P. R. ahoura he called upon to meet these temporary conditions out of the surplus accrued from past profitable operation. It the intention of the railway commis- sion is, as seems apparent, to make the increased rates on freight In force after December 31 next, a perm- anent increase, the whole subject ought to bt; taken up in parliament." VANCOUVER PROVINCE: "There never was a doubt that the railway commission would authorize a large Increase In railway transportation rales. It Is surely a largo addition to the cost of transportation atid travel. There is no question that the con- sumer will pay it in the increaserl cost .of 'commodities. It will' be an element in the cost of living, and thus an item in further claims to higher wages. There will be sharp conlro vorsy over the question whether tho whole of this increase Is- demanded hy tho railway financial situation The decision does hot go without pro lest on the whole and on details." TORONTO' MAIL, AND EMPIRE: "Even if the rate increases are heavy wo can at least remember thai a people Canadians are in a far bet ler position to bear such the people of any other country, buc the time has .come for stern action to prevent further inflation of rallroat costs, even at tbo cost of Jmvlng to fight strikes." MANITOBA FREB FRBSS: "Tho decision IIP.S been given, not to meet the legitimate uecjs of (bo C. P. R. but to help out the Canadian National Railways.
