ITariff Reduotion Is On River Division The freight tariffs between Nkag way and Dawson, and the Sound and Daw son, hare been materially reduce<l. The rate sheets, baaed upon the rates agreed upon by the White I'aas & Yu kon route and the ocean steamship line* operating between Skagway and the Sound, have been issued and are now iu effect. The major portion of the reduction is on the Yukon river division of the White i'uu, as the rates from between the Sound and White horse and between Skagway and Whitehorse remain the same as last year. The rate of reduction in the rates be tween Skagway and Dawson is about 25 |ht cent, with a broader and more liberal "?p?oial commodity" rate. The following comparisons, based on freight classed as "Class A," which consists of non-perishables and non- . breakable goods, such as staples in i groceries, hardware, etc., will give a clearer idea idea of the new rate: -1902- ,-1903- . Kate per TUte per j 10(1 lbs. 100 tbs 1 Skiigwav - Dawson under 20,000 lbs.. 13.70 *3.00 Skagwuv ? Dawson over 30,0000 lbs. . 3.45 185 Sound- Dawson un der 20, 000 fcs. .. . 4.00 3.25 Sound- Dawson over 20,000 lbs 3.75 3.00 It will be noted that the reduction on the through shipment is live cents per 100 lbs greater than that from Skagway. However, there is still a difference of fc"> per ton in favor of Skagway as against the Sound. The special rate* on commodities, 1 such as lumber, hay, feed, paper anil certain lines of non-breakable hardware In shipments of carload lots, are still lower. For instance the rates on lum ber are one-half the rate quoted. The rate from Skagwuy on hay in carload lots is ?-..'171 per 100 lbs and on oats and feed 12.25. The rate sheet provides among other things: "Through bills of lading will not be issued until May 15, but if shippers wish to take advantage of early shl|> ment, through rotes will apply on ship ments made between the date of Issue , of this turilT and May 15, to be held at Whitehorse for the opening of navi gation, subject to regular storage rates. "Shipments covered by through bills of lading issued on or after May 15 will ] be held (if necesiary) at Whltehores for theo|>enlng of navigation free of stor age. "Shipments destined to any |>oint on the Yukon river, except Whitehorse and Dawsou, must be prepaid. "Through bills of lading will not l>e issued later than August 31. "Provisions for carload ratings will apply only on shipments to one con signee." The new rate from Skagway to Atliu on "Class A" freight in less than car load lots is 12. U5 per 100 U>s and iiliTl for carload lots or more. The through rates from the Sound are 20 cents per 100 or ?."> per ton greater. The lumber rate is one-half that of "('lavs A." with a reduction in other comiuodoties pro- I portionate with the reduction to Daw son. Gav* Up Coatraot ('apt.
