WESTERN KATES ARE TOO HIGH CHAIRMAN DRAYTON SAYS CASE HAS BEEN MADE OUT AGAINST THE RAILWAYS Ottawa, Sept. pending the conclusion or the inquiry now being conducted into the western freight rates, the present rates are not to be changed by the railways, was the de cision handed down this morning b> Chairman H. L. Drayton, K.C., the new head of the railway commiHBion who took his seat for the first time. Judge E. II. Phippen, of the C. N R., endeavored to'justify any ehanges which the road had made in its west orn rates since the opening of the In- quiry, He eaid that one rate, for in- stance, had been lowered to meet low- er rates In the United States. These had been changed, and accordingly the Canadian rates were also being brought back to their old level. Kates on hay .put in force on account of the fault of the western crop, were being brought back to normal'. "The Board Js not able to check these said Mr, Drayton. "I am told the C. N. R. wishes to change the rates on fertilizers as well. If we are ever to have any finality in this west- ern matter, the only thing to do is to leave the rates alone." That such a general order as pro- posed was in effect In June was main- tained by Mr. Beatty, for the C. p. R. The rates complained of were not in- creased, only aligned, he stated. "As far OB I am concerned, said the chairman, "I consider the us- march all their fnenjs and nearly all their relives when they re- ed They ,.y that a Urlff turned yesterday morning.

WHAT ELECTION FIGURES REVEAL SOME MEMBERS REPRESENT TOO MANY, OTHERS TOO MANY DIDN'T VOTF, Ottawa, Sept. need of re- distribution, is emphasized in a blue- book just issued by the clerk of the crown in Chancery, giving the detailed results of the general election a year ago. The vote in each poll is given. As was shown by the. census there has been a strong movement from the rural districts to the cities. The re- sult is that some of the urban con- stituencies, with a population of 000, "have on-e member, "while rural Bounties, with have iin equal representation. It has al- n'fiys been customary to concede a smaller unit to the country districts than 1o the cities, but in any event, the representation of the latter is to lie increased. Muissonneuve" with is the largest, and Soul- anges tlie smallest of. the constitqen- cies. Montreal and Toronto both will have more memlwrs, and the same- will apply to Winnipeg ami Vancou- -er. In Quebec, it. seems likely that Soulanges will be added to Vaud- reuij, L'Islet to Montmagny, possibly ..aval to L'Assomption, while other constituencies may be united. In any svent, the province of Quebec will ifill have 65 members. Constituencies likely to be lopped off are one of the Simco-ea. one of he Middlesexes, one of the llurons, and one or two others. The representation of New Onrario vill be increased by two or three. Ot- awa's representation is likely to re- lain as it is, save that ihu annexed suburbs will be added to the Federal constituencies. The figures show hat out of I.SOO.Til! names on the j lists in Canada, voted. In British Columbia fewer voters went to the poll in proportion, than any other province, only out of OS1. The vote in the west was light- er than thia east.
