Montreal, March 30.D. B. Hanna, gen
eral managei- of the Canadian Northern,
has announced a traffic arrangement b ^
which \hcy will be able .to ship freight
right through from the Canadian" north
west to Quebec and in British steamers
to LJnglish ports.
"The principal result of the Canadian
Northern and Great Northern deal," saya
Mr. Hanna. "will be that the Canadian
Northern will be able to see that the
greater portion of the triWe of the west
rno\es right along its own or allied lines
to Quebec. By arrangements that have
been made after the Canadian Northern
has carried the freight to Port Arthur,
It will be placed on steamers of the.Can
ada Atlantic railway-.and shipped to Parry
sound. The Canada Atlantic railway wilt
then take charge and carry -it as far as
Hawkesbury, Que., where it will be hand
ed over to the Great Northern and brought
right to the city of Quebec. By special
arrangement the Ley land steamship com
pany will then .take charge and carry it
to different Brtyish ports.
"nl addition to trafnce from the Cana
dian lake ports, a large amount of traffic
will be diverted from Duluth to Parry
Sound. A largo amount of business from
western states is now done through
Duluth, and some of this will also be
shipped along the Canadian lines. In or
der to keep pace with the rapid develop
ment of the Canadian porthwest. the Ca
nadian Northern is adding to Its rolling
stock as rapidly as possible. Thirty-one
locomotives. 1,000 box cars and fifty-six
cattle cars will be delivered in the near
future. The land along the main and
branch lines of the Canadian Northern is
being taken up very rapidly. The .rush
into the country is certainly wonderful,
but we will be able to take care of all
who come along. There will not be much
difficulty In supplying them with ample
fuel and lumber."
POINTERS ON ELKINS LAW
Agents Receive Instructions as to Those
Who May Be Favored.
Railroad agents are receiving special
printed instructions pointing out the par
ticular sections and clauses of the Elkins
law which affect different classes of busi
ness. Exceptions specifying favors that
may still be granted by the railroads are
pointed out. Section 20 gives most of the
exceptions, others are allowed by Implica
The Elkins law does not prevent the
carriage, storage or handling of property
free, or at reduced rates for the United
States, state or municipal governments,
or for charitable purposes, or to or from
fail's and expositions for exhibition, or the
free carriage of homeless persons trans
ported by charitable societies, and the
necessary agents employed in such trans
portation, or the issuance of mileage, exr
ursion or commutation passenger tickets.
The act does not prohibit any railroad
or other common carrier from giving re
duced rates to ministers of religion or to
municipal governments for the- transport-
ation of indigent persons or to Inmates
of the national homes or state homes for
disabled volunteer soldiers and of sold
iers' and sailors' orphan homes,- including
trios* about to enter and those returning
horn* after discharge, under arrangements
with the board of managers of those
homes. '" ': -:-
Nothing in the act can be construed t a
prevent railroads from giving free car
riage to their own officers or employes, or
to prevent the principal officers of any
railroad company or companies from ex
changing passes or tickets with other
railroad companies for their officers, or
Jt does absolutely forbid the issuing of
passes or the allowance of reduced pas
senger rates to all others, and likewise the
granting of rebates to shippers.
DANGEROUS TO MINNEAPOLIS
Plan Proposed In Legislature Affecting
The Commercial West believes that the
bill before the Minnesota legislature to
base rates for shipping grain on mileage
distance from Minneapolis to Duluth is a
measure most dangerous to the interests
of the Minnesota millers and grain deal
ers. "-A.S a law it -would work to the ad
vantage of eastern points," says the-pa
per. "The Chicago roads would be'able
to make a long haul rate out of Minne
sota and South Dakota that would work
steadily against the state terminal points/
The measure should receive the prompt
attention of the Minneapolis Chamber of
Commerce and of the Duluth Board of
Trade, as well as the attention of all
country shippers who want to avail them
selves at opportune times of the high pre
miums paid in Minneapolis for cash
