CORRESPONDENCE RELATING TO THE SELECTION AND RESERYATION
OF LAND.
Hudson Bay Company, Land Department,
Winnipeg, 2nd February, 1883.
My Dear Sir,—I am obliged for your letter of the 26th ult., enclosing plan"of
the land you require at Rat Portage.
I find upon examining this plan, that it covers a total area of 60,022 acres.
Under the deed of surrender you are entitled to one-twenty-fifth of the property
owned by the company at Rat Portage, which amounts to 690 acres, and the proportion due to the Government would be 2*7 6 acres. You are therefore asking for,
according to the plan you have sent me, about thirty-three acres more than you are
entitled to under the deed of surrender.
On examining the plan I find that you have made an encroachment upon ground
which we have laid out in town lots, and upon examining our sales, I find that we
have sold nearly all of the lots according to the survey, which you now propose to
take from us.
I send you a plan of Rat Portage, which has been registered in the registry
office, and is therefore binding upon all parties, and which will show you what
damage you propose to do. The black line shows the piece that we supposed you
had desired to take. The red line shows what your plan enclosed in your letter
covers. You have thus carried your piece of ground to the westward and abandoned
it to the eastward, and in this way have taken in lots which are on a plan duly
registered, and which cannot therefore be altered, and all but two of which have
absolutely been sold.
I must ask you, therefore, to be good enough to change the plan that you have
sent me, and let the western boundary be according to the black mark on the
enclosed plan, and you can take, of course, whatever further quantity you want to
the eastward, and thus not interfere with the town plot, which, as I have said has-
been registered as a plan and lots sold under it.
Yours very truly,
„  „ C. J. BRYDGES.
C. Schreiber, Ottawa.
Winnipeg, 3rd February, 1883.
My Dear Sir —Referring to my letter of yesterday you will of course   under
stand that if you decide to take the land shown on the plan you sent me   you  will
have to purchase the lots sold by us trom the parties we have sold to ' We have
given you more than the one-twenty-fifth without the piece sold as lots.
Yours truly,
~ a C J. BBYDGES.
C. Schreiber. Canadian Pacific Railway Office of the Engineer-in-Chief.
Ottawa, 9th February, 1883.
Sir,—Having received further communications from C. J. Brydges, Esq., Land
Commissioner to the Hudson Bay Company, in reference to their land proposed to
be taken for railway purposes at Rat Portage, I have the honor to report.
I am informed by Mr. Brydges, that a portion of the land proposed to be taken
by the Canadian Pacific Railway, as recommended in my report of the 26th October
last, has been laid out in town lots and the lots sold.
Mr. Brydges also states that the Hudson Bay Company do not include the lots
already sold in the free surrender of land they have made to the Government for
railway purposes; I have, therefore, prepared a plan, showing in that portion
colored red, the land I now suggest should be taken to meet tho railway requirements, the lots now sold being excluded therefrom.
I have the honor to be sir, your obedient servant,
C. SCHREIBER, Chief Engineer.
A. P. Bradley, Secretary, Railways and Canals.
Ottawa, 11th February, 1883.
Sir,—I have to acknowledged the receipt of your letter of the 9th inst., in
I ^relation to the question of the land at Rat Portage, to be taken from the Hudson
Bay Company for the use of the Canadian Pacific Railway, such letter being accompanied by a plan showing the location of the said land, as amended in accordance
with the letter of the Company's Land Commissioner, addressed to you under date
the 2nd inst., whereby they represent that they have divided their land in this
place into town lots which have been already sold, and asking that the railway
boundary may be altered so as to avoid their inclusion.
In reply, I am directed to say that the Minister approves of the amended location of the railway property as shown on the plan submitted to you, and to request
that you will take the necessary steps to effect its transfer to the Government.
I am Sir, your obedient servant,
A. P. BRADLEY, Secretary.

CORRESPONDENCE  RELATING TO THE ADJUSTMENT   OF  ACCOUNT
BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT AND THE COMPANY, AND SUBSIDY.
Canadian Pacific Railway, Ottawa, 1st February, 1883.
Sir.—The   account    against  the   Canadian   Pacific    Railway, amounting to
$1,042,519.29,  subiect to correction, rendered some  time ago, has this day    been
under discussion with tho Canadian Pacific Railway Company's officers, with a view-
to adjustment.
It is considered that under the terms of their contract, the following sums do not
form proper charges against the Company, viz : —
No. 1. Wire fencing, Skead & Haycock $18,500 00
«   2.    "       «       Stubbs&Oo    8,000 00
"   3. Temporary bridge over Red River     6,950 00
"   4. duty on engines     7,599 50
"    5. Freight in store     2,158 01
«.    6. "       transit     3,400 14
$46,607 65
The following are the reasons for omitting the above mentioned sums from tho
Account against the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. r
22
1st. The contract made with Messrs. Skead and Haycock, was cancelled in con-
sequence of the contract made with the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, to
construct the railway; the materials delivered by Messrs. Skead & Haycock were
paid for, and subsequently sold by auction, the proceeds being paid in to the credit
of the Receiver-General.
2nd. The sum of $8,000 was paid Messrs. Stubbs & Co., for fencing on tno
Pembina Branch which had not previously been executed. ] ....
3rd. The temporary bridge was not erected directly in connection with the
contract for the 100 miles west of Red River, but was used for traffic purposes.
4th. Custom duties were included in making the valuation of the engines, and
it is now considered the valuation should have been exclusive of duties.
5th. A portion of the freight in store when the transfer was made to the Company, consisted of a quantity of goods and chattels not worth the freight, and which
■were never called for ; in fact, some were not worth the cost of removing. Tho
sum of $2,158.01 represents the freight on such materials, and is struck out.
6th. By error, an overcharge of $3400.14, was made on freight in transit, which
ia now corrected.
The account therefore stands as follows :—
Account formerly rendered (subject to correction)... $1,042,519 29
Amount erroneously charged         46,607 65
Account as adjusted $995,911 64
I have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient servant,
C. SCHREIBER.

Memorandum. Ottawa, 2nd February, 1883.
The undersigned has the honor to represent that under the terms of the contrao-
made with the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, they were to take over the portion of railway, 100 miles in length, extending from the City of Winnipeg westwards,
they paying the cost of the work up to the time, when it was taken out of tho
hands of the contractor, and the expenses subsequently incurred by the Government
in its prosecution.
That under the terms of the Order in Council of the 9th April, 1881, transfer-
jjing the Pembina Branch and the line from Selkkirk to Telford, to the Company, they
were to take over, at a fair valuation, such rolling stock as the Government could
dispense with, together with general stores, cord wood, station furniture, &c, also
rails, &c, in sidings. They were further to take over the freight, paying to tho
Government the charges thereon.
That accordingly a valuation was made, subject to correction, and in the first
estimate given by the Chief Engineer, dated the 18th of January, 1882, the company
were debited with the sum of $1,042,519.29, as representing "work performed on
first 100 miles west of Red River, including rails, «plant. rolling stock, &c, transferred freight in transit and in store on the 1st of May 18S1."
That a report has now been furnished by the Chief Engineer, dated the 1st inst
from which it appears that certain   items of the said account should not prop?
erly be charged against the Company.    They are as follows:—
No. 1. Wire fencing, Skead & Haycock   «I8 500 00
1|1 I       Stubbs & Co .;    8,000 00
6. lemporary bridge over Red River        e 950 00
4. Duty on engines    .^599 5a
5. Freight m store     2,158 01
6- tran8lt     3,400 14
$46,607 65 That the reasons given by the Chief Engineer for the omission of the above
mentioned sums from the account against the Company are as follows:—
1. The contract with Messrs. Skead & Haycock was cancelled in consequence of
the contract made with the Company for the construction of the railway. The materials delivered by Messrs. Skead & Haycock were paid for and were subsequently
sold by auction, the proceeds being paid in to the Receiver General.
2. The sum of $8,000 was paid to Messrs. Stubbs & Co., for fencing on the Pembina Branch, which had not previously been executed.
3. The temporary bridge was not erected directly in connection with the contract for the 100 miles west of Red River, but was used for traffic purposes.
4. Custom duties were included in making the valuation of the engines, and it
is now considered that the valuation should have been exclusive of duty.
5. A portion of the freight in store when the transfer was made to the Company
cd'nsisted of a quantity of goods and chattels not worth the freight, and which were
recancelled for, in fact, some were not worth the cost of removing. The sum of
$2,158.01, represents the freight charges on such goods, and is struck out.
6. By error, an overcharge of $3,400.14 was made on freight in transit, which is
now corrected.
That the Chief Engineer shows the account against the Company now to stand as
follows:—
Account formerly rendered (subject to correction)....$1,042,519 29
Amount erroneously charged ,       46,60*7 65
Account as adjusted ..,    $995,911 64
The undersigned recommends that the said sum of $995,911.64 be the basis of
the adjustment of this account.

Dear Sir —You are aware of the agreement between this Company and the
Government, under which advances have recently been made on certain steel rails
stored at Hochelaga. That agreement provides that the rails shall not be removed
unless required for use in the construction of the main line. It will be a great
convenience to us now when our flat cars are not in great demand for general business to remove these rails to a point on the main line, west of Callander, where we
propose to pile them and draw from the piles, as they are required for use in the
original construction of the railway. I fancy we shall require the authority of the
Government before this can be done. Will you kindly look at the agreement and
advise me on this point? If necessary a Government officer would be sent up to receive them.   Your early attention to this matter will very much oblige,
Yours truly,       C. DRINKWATER. Secretary.

the main line west of Callandar-
I have transferred your letter to the Department of Railways and Canals. Not
having the agreement here, and being in Mr. Schreiber's office this morning, I looked
at it there, and conversed with him in regard to the subject of your letter. It would
be advisable for you to make your application to the Department of Railways and
Canals, and if they have any doubt upon the question, they will refer it here for
opinion.

Sir,—I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 24ih
ultimo, requesting that a tariff of tolls to be charged upon that portion of tho Canadian Pacific Railway lying between Telford and Rat Portage, be submitted for iho

be given the Company to extend temporarily, tho mileage and other tariffs now in force
on the Western Division, to that portion of the railway between Telford and Rat Portage, until such revised tariff has received consideration.

Certified Copy of a Report of a Committee of the Honorable the Privy Council, approved by His Excellency the Governor General in Council, on tlie 23rd March, 1883.
On a memorandum, dated 9th December, 1882, from the Minister of Railways
and Canals, submitting for approval, in accordance with the provisions of the Consolidated Railway Act, 1879, the accompanying proposed freight tariff on tho
Western Division of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
That in relation thereto the Chief Engineer of Government Railways states
undpr date the 9th of December, 1882, that though higher than tho tariffs of railways
in Eastern Canada, it is in his opinion so only in proportion to the comparatively
greater cost of operating a railway in the North-West, and that tho rates submitted
are just and fair, taking into consideration the fact that the cost of fuel used on this
section of railway is at least 110 per cent, higher on roads in Eastern Canada ; that of
labor, 45 per cent., and of general supplies, 60 per cent higher: further, that the line
runs for hundreds of miles through a'country but sparsely settled and yielding, for
some time to come but a very light traffic. The tariff in question has, however, been
framed with a view to the settlement of the country and the promotion of its trade,
and to this end low rates have been placed on some of the more important articles,
such as immigrants' effects, coal, cordwood, lumber and grain. In view of the
charges which the rapid rate of settlement in the country may be ev peeled to produce, he advises that the period for the operation of the present tariff be one year
only, and he, the Minister, concurs in the above report.
The Committee recommend that the freight tariff on the Western Division, as
submitted, bo approved accordingly, such tariff to be operative until the first day of
January, 1884.

Miii^ter  Ra.hvays and Canals.
Canadian Pacific Railway Company, Montreal, 4ih April, 1883.
Dear Sir,—I enclose your telegram. I enclose one copy of the Western Division
classification. I am sorry to say it is the only spare copy 1 have. If you still
requ're more, I will get some from Winnipeg.
Yours truly,       C. DRINKWATER, Secretary.
A. P. Bradley, Secretary, Railways and Canals.
Ottawa, 7th April, 1£83.
Sir,—I am directed to transmit to you a copy of a tariff of freight tolls for the
Western Division of the Canalian Pacific Railway, to be operative up to the 1st
January, 1881.
It will be necessary, in order to conform to the requirements of the 17th
section of the Consolidated Railway Act, 1879, that a by-law be made by your Company establishing the tariff, with its classification sheet and certified copies thereof,
in duplicate, under seal of the Company, be transmitted to this Department for
approval of the Governor in Council.
And after such approval by Order in Council has been obtained, it will then be
incumbent upon you to cause to bo published in the Canada Gazette the by-law
establishing the tolls, and the Order in Council approving thereof, as required by
the ninth sub-section of the seventeenth section of the above mentioned Act.
It will also be necessary to define in tbe by-law that portion of your railway
intended to be embraced in the term, Western Division, to which this tariff will
apply. And it would be convenient that the passenger tariff be included in the same
by-law.
I have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient servant,
A. P.BRADLEY, Secretary.

Board of Trade,
Secretary's Office, Winnipeg, 7th April, 1883.
SIR)_"VVe have been instructed by the Council of the Board of Trade to send you
the accompanying copy of a letter addressed on the 20th ult, by the Board to 44
the General Manager of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, bearing upon tho
i econt heavy increase in their freight tariff.
The Board is not aware whether the increased tariff has B# n approved Dy tne
Governor in Council, and that therefore it cannot be bound until the Company earns-
ton per cent, upon its capital.   If such is the case the effectjnpon the trade of this-
country will be disastrous. -vr   <.u nr »+
The Board trusts that this matter, so vital to the growth of the North-Westr
will receive the earnest attention of yourself and the Government, and your attention
is specially called to the claim made, that rates must bo made to cover the cost ot
working, which is so contrary to what was stated to be the fact when the contract
with the railway company was entered into.
Wo have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient servants,
C. N. BRYDGES, President.
L. M: LEWIS, Secretary.
Sir Charles Tcpper, Minister Railways and Canals.
Winnipeg, 20th March, 1883.
Sir,—In pursuance of the understanding arrived at when a Committee from the
Board of Trade of this city had an interview with you on the 17th inst, we are now
instructed by the Council of tho B^ard to address you upon the matters which were
discussed at the interview referred to.
The questions discussed related to the rates of freight charged upon theCanadian
Pacific Railway, and the greatly increased schedule of rates which has lately been
put in force.
The Board must call your earnest attention to the fact, that at present the trade
of Manitoba is almost entirely one of imports, the country not having begun to grow
much more than is sufficient to supply the wants of the large numbers of immigrants
yearly coming into tho country. The imports are from Europe, Eastern Canada and
the United States, and the cost of transportation to the borders of the country at St.
Vincent is so very heavy as to add largely to the price at which goods must be sold
—a fact, which of course, is still more onerous, from the very high rates now in
force from the boundary to all interior points, and it is a question, therefore, in
which the railway company is very deeply interested, because very high prices of
all the commodities required and used by the inhabitants, must havfe an injurious
effect as regards inducing settlers to come into the country.
The Board is quite aware that the highest prices of materials, labor and fuel
combined, with a present smaller traffic per mile of railway in operation, must render
the cost of working a railway in Manitoba higher than in the Middle States or
Eastern Canada, but it is a question worthy of very careful consideration how far
unduly high rates will tend to injure the country and the consequent future growth
of the traffic or profits of the railway itself.
It isalso a consideration which must not be lost sight of, that the Parliament of
Canada, in fixing the terms of the contract with your Company, made those terms
liberal as they are, on the distinct ground, amongst others, that the cost of working
the railway could only be carried on for some years at a loss until, in fact, the
country became fairly settled ; and therefore the evident intention of your contract
was, that rates were not to be fixed solely upon the basis of, as far as possible, covering expenses during the earlier years of operation.
With these preliminary observations, the Board desire to call the  attention of
your Company to the effect of the late tariff of rates you have issued, and first to
compare them with the rates which existed but little more than a week ago.  The
rates heretofore in force were issued and approved by the Government when they
worked a portion of the existing railway, and the authority of the  Government for
charging the rates set out in your printed mileage tariff, No. 2, was therefore in
force up to the 10th March, 1883.  They were very much higher rates than were then
or now m force in the Middle States and in Eastern Canada; but were understood to
be considered to be justified by the higher cost of labor, materials and fuel, in this
part of the country. 45
The following comparative statement will show the groat increase of tho  new
rates, now established over those originally fixed by the Government:

Being an average increase of nearly 59 per cent.
The above are samples of the rates. A full comparison to every station as far
as Brandon, would show similar results. It is understood that for all goods beyond
Brandon, as long.as the old Government mileage rates were in force, the tariff rate
was charged to Brandon, and arbitrary figures fixed by the contractors constructing
the line added to destination as the railway was opened.
It cannot bo doubled that an increase of 59 per cent, upon rates which were
already very much in excess of what are charged in the Middle States or Eastern
Canada, must have a serious effect upon the trade of the country, and combined with
the extremely high rates up to the boundary, render it necessary for a very much
larger capital to be employed in conducting any general business than is requir'od in
other parts of Canada. This must press with a special severity upon a new country,
first entering upon tho threshold of its trade.
The CounGil of the Board of Trade trust that the important questions involved
in this very large and sudden increase of rates upon general merchandise, will receive
the very careful consideration of yourself and the Directors of your Company, as well
as regards its effects upon the mercantile community of Manitoba, as upon the settlement of the country and the fature profits of the railway itself. The Board desire
next to call your very earnest attention to a matter which they can hardly suppose,
from the results apparent, can have received due consideration at your hands.
They refer to the discrimination which the working of the new tariff presents in
regard to the trade of Winnipeg.
In your interview with the committee, you state that it was the decided desire
and interest of yourself and the Directors of the railway to do all in their power to
promote the City of Winnipeg, as the great distributing centre of business upon the
railway. You stated as evidence of this desire, the intention of your Company to
make such comparatively low rates to Winnipeg,from Thunder Bay, during the season
of navigationas would enable its merchants to lay inlarge supplies at a moderate cost,
so as to permit of the distribution of these goods throughout the country to the west. 45
Such a policy is undoubtedly wise. Every great railway company must have a
central destributing point, where capital or enterprise will centre and which, by the
growth of a large city will attract labor of all kinds and establish large depots of
materials, tending to the advantage of the railway as providing it with labor and
materials at reasonable prices and supplying it with a large and constantly growing
traffic.
Such a large centre of busines is of advantage to the country ; westward also, at
almost all your stations, small villages will arise, and at several points considerable
towns will grow into existence.
For some years the capital employed at all these places must of necessity bo
limited, and it will be greatly to their advantage to have a large centre" of business
connected with them by railway, where large stocks of merchandise are held, and
from which they can draw moderate quantities as they may require them.
But the following statement of comparative rates will show that your present
tariff is calculated to work both against Winnipeg, and be.also an injury to all western points, which must, for many years deal with Winnipeg for what they require.

It will thus be seen that for all goods brought by Winnipeg merchants and by
them distributed throughout the country, an average increase of rates is charged
equal to nearly 20 cents per hundred lbs. on all kinds of merchandize. The fact is
really more than thi«, because in Winnipeg cartage between the railway station and
the merchants' stores costs 4 cents per 100 each way, thus making the extra charge
about 28 cents per 100.
The proper remedy for this will be to follow
Eastern Canada, and have a special tariff for goods shippd to local points from great
distributing centres.   As an illustration of the very heavy charges made upon goods
shipped from Winnipeg to country points, as compared with  the rate
the Grand Trunk Railway, from Montreal, during the present  winter,
adopted by railways
goods
■ates charged by
the following
figures will evidence some startling resnlts. The figures are all taken from the lately
increased tariff of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and the present winter tariff of the
Grand Trunk Railway westward from Montreal, and which winter tariff is about 50
per cent, higher than their summer tariff.

From the foregoing table, it appears that the average rates on tho Canadian
Pacific Railway, bylfc* now and increased tariff, are upwards of 65 per cent, higher
than the winter rates from Montreal westward, on the Grand Trunk Railway, for
similar distances ; but in addition to their ordinary winter rates, the Grand Trunk
Railway Company issue spocial tariffs and at lower rates for a number of different
kinds of goods. Amongst others, for grain and flour, lumber, butter and cheese, potatoes,
bark, manufactures and wholesale merchandise. For the last a special tariff is made
from Montreal, Toronto and Hamilton, the three large distributing points on the
Grand Trunk system. The following table of rates charged from Toronto, eastward,,
on the former classes of goods, will further show the comparative rates charged on
the Grand Trunk an"d Canadian Pacific Railways to the manufacturers and^ wholesale
merchants from their respective distributing centres of Toronto and Winnipeg :—

The average increase charged by the Canadian Pacific Railway to manufacturers
and wholesale merchants from its distributing centres as shown above, is no less than
1-33 per cent, higher than for similar distances on the Grand Trunk Railway from its
distributing centres. J
The Grand Trunk Railway also gives still lower special rates for plaster,  sugar
syrup and iron.   Nails and spikes in kegs, and pig iron and salt, all in car load lots.' 49

The Board of Trade of Winnipeg having placed before you the facts set out in
this letter, earnestly hope that the whole question will be very carefully considered
by the directors of the Company and by yourself.
It is of vast importance to the Railway Company itself, to the rapid growth of
the wnole country, and to the trade of Winnipeg, which supplies so very large and
growing a proportion of the traffic of the railway.
This Board, whilst fully admitting that the higher cost of labor, materials and
fuel, render it impossible to fix railway rates at as low a standard in Manitoba as are
in force in Eastern Canada, believe that the comparative figures set out in this letter
cannot be considered to justify the soundness of the greatly increased standard of,
rates which have lately been published by your Company, and they are of opinion
that if persevered with, without some such modifications, as have beefi suggested in
this letter, the result must ultimately prove alike injurious to the country and to the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company.
The Board of Trade cannot agree with the argument that the rates upon the
sparse traffic at the commencement must be fixed so as to cover the cost of working
-the railway from the start, because the clear intention of Parliament, in entering
into the contract with your company, was to give such a subsidy, as would cover the
well-foreseen heavy loss which must arise in the working of the line for the first
few years, and until the country became fairly settled.
The Board of Trade desire in conclusion to say that it is their earnest desire to
discuss these matters in the fairest and most friendly spirit. They especially desire-
to promote by every reasonable means, the success of your railway in the rapid conclusion of which we are all deeply interested. But tbey are also bound to point out
what they conceive to be mistakes, alike injurious to the country and to your own
company.
We have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient servants,
C. J. BRYDGES, President.

•Charles Drinkwater, Secretary, C. P. R. Co.
Ottawa, 1st May, 1883.
Sir,—The undersigned has the honor to represent that, under date the   18th
ult., the Secretary  of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company has submitted for
approval by the Governor in Council, in accordance with the requirements of the
Consolidated Railway Act, section 17, sub-section 9, a by-law No. 56, enacted and
passed at a meeting of that Board of Directors held on the  16th ult., such by-law
embodying a revised schedule of freight rates and passenger fares proposed to be
•charged on the Western Division of their road and its branches, commencing at
JPkince Arthur's Landing.
That in relation to the freight tariff, the Government Chief Engineer  has
reported, under date the 9th of December last, that though higher than the tariffs of
railways in Eastern Canada, it is so, in his opinion, only in proportion to the comparatively greater cost of operating a railway in the North-West, and that the rates
submitted are just and fair, taking into consideration the fact that the cost of fuel
used on this section of railway is at least 110 per cent, higher than on  roads in
Eastern Canada; that of labor, 45 per cent., and of general supplies,  60 per  cent,
higher; further, that the line runs for hundreds of miles through a country  but
sparsely settled, and yielding for some time to come but a very light traffic.   That
■the tariff in question has, however, been formed with a view to the settlement of the
country and the promotion of its trade, and to this end low rates have been placed ]
on some of the more important articles, such as immigrants' effects, coal, cordwood,
lumber and grain.   In view of the changes which the rapid rate of settlement in the
■country may be expected to produce, he advises that the period for the operation of  :
the proposed tariff be one year only.
That with respect to the passenger tariff proposed, the Chief Engineer, under
•date the 30th ult,, has expressed the opinion that this tariff is fair and just.
The undersigned, concurring in the views of the Chief Engineer, recommends
that approval be given to both the freight and passenger tariffs proposed so
embodied in the aforesaid by-law No. 56, such tariffs to be and continue in force' for
one year from and after fall compliance by the Company with the conditions of the
■Consolidated Railway Act, as to publication.
Respectfully submitted,

Canadian Pacific Eailway Company, Montreal, 1st November, 1883.
Sir,—-I beg to enclose a letter from the General Superintendent of the Eastern
Division of this Eailway respecting the speed of trains between Deux Eivieres and
Mattawa, and to request that the Government Engineer be instructed to re-examine
the line between these points, which has been improved since the date of his last
report, with the view of the cancellation of his previous certificate, which limited the
speed of trains to 20 miles per hour. I think it will be found that the track is now
in condition to "warrant this action on the part of the Eailway Committee, and as the
matter is of pressing importance, I respectfully ask that the required inspection be
made with as little delay as possible.
I have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient servant,
C. DBINKWATEE, Secretary.
T. Trudeau, Secretary Eailway Committee,
Canadian Pacific Eailway Company, Montreal, 1st November, 1883.
Dear Sir,—We propose to change the time on the 12th inst., and in order to do
this, it will be necessary to run our trains between Pembroke and North Bay at a
maximum rate of 30 miles per hour. Mr. Eidout, some time ago, when inspecting
the road, limited our speed between Deux Eivieres and Mattawa to 20 miles per
hour, but since that time a great improvement has been made on the track.
I asked our engineer to have Mr. Eidout to go over the track with him, and
give us a fresh certificate, and you will see, from his reply to Mr. McPhersoh, that it
has to be done officially.
Will you kindly have the matter attended to at once, so that there may be no
delay in our time bill ?
Yours truly,

Ottawa, 6th August, 1883.
Sir,—I am instructed to refer to you copy of some correspondence that has
taken place between this Department and the Clerk of the Municipality of St. Andrews, Manitoba, with reference to the building of a bridge across a certain off-take
drain running from the Pembina Branch Eailway and crossing a highway nearly
opposite the Hudson Bay Company's stone fort. It appears to be a matter that
should be dealt with by your Company.

opposite the Stone Fort, and the publio highway was crossed and left unbridgod.
I am requested by the Warden to ask you to be good enough inform me at your

authorities to see to the immediate construction of a bridge over the drain.

Dear Sir,—I have to apologize for not sooner answering your letter of the 27tb
May and 17th June, in reference to the bridge, owing to absence from the city.

Not having done so, I have given orders to have a bridge put in, and the matter
will be attended to at an early date.

Sir,—I am again instructed by the Warden and Council, in reference to the subject of my letters of 27th May and 17th June, to inform you that, notwithstanding the
promise contained in your letter of 21st June, nothing has apparently been done in
the matter of getting a bridge built. I am requested to ask an explanation of this
seeming neglect, and to insiBt upon your immediate attention to this matter. An
accident has already occurred in consequence of there being no proper means of
crossing the drain, and a law suit may be the upshot of a longer continuance of the
present state of affairs.

following facts, viz.:—On the 27th May last I was requested to write to Mr. Eowan,
District Engineer, in reference to a drain (an outlet of the ditch along the Pembina
Branch) which was cut across the great highway (nearly opposite tho Hudson Bay
Company's Stone Fort), and left without a bridge, very much to the danger and
inconvenience of the travelling public.
I enclose copy of Mr. Eowan's reply. Mr. Eowan has been written to several
times since, informing him that nothing has as yet been done, but he has made no
further response.
Will you have the goodness to cause the Council to be informed, at your earliest
convenience, what the Department intends doing in the natter.

Dear Sir,—With reference to the highway bridge in the Parish of St. Paul's,
which was washed away by water from an off-take drain on the Pembina Branch, and
which was reported on by Mr. Skead on the 25th March last, you are authorized by
the Honorable the Acting Minister to replace the same at a cost not to exceed $300.
You will remember my giving you verbal instructions respecting this matter
before leaving Winnipeg.

Sir,—Eeferring to your letter of 12th April last, I am again requested by the
Council to urge upon your Department the necessity for immediate action in the
matter of bridging the highway referred to in my communication of 7th of March
last. Traffic is interrupted and great inconvenience caused by the tardiness shown
in treating this matter as it deserves at the hands of your Department. An immediate answer as to the course you intend to persue will greatly oblige the Council.

Ottawa, 11th April, 1882.
Sir,—With reference to the question of the reconstruction of a bridge over an
off take drain on the Pembina Branch Eailway in the Parish of St. Andrews, which had
been washed away, and in relation to which a letter was addressed to you by this
Department on the 12th October last, I am directed to inform you that a communication has been received from the Division Superintendent of the Canadian Pacifio
Eailway, Winnipeg, from which it is inferred that this bridge was rebuilt in the
month of June, 1881.
I am, Sir, your obedient servant,
A. P. BRADLEY, Secretary.
J. Macdougall, Clerk, St. Andrew's, Manitoba.
Municipality of St. Andrews,
Clerk's Office, Lower Fort Garry, 11th May, 1882.
Sir,—Eeferring to your letter of llth ult., respecting bridge over off-take drain
on the Pembina Branch, Canadian Pacific Eailway.
There seems to be some misunderstanding about the matter. It is not the
reconstruction of a bridge that is wanted, but the construction of it, as it was never
built. .
The bridge referred to in my correspondence with the Department is one that
is wanted to cross the top drain from the Pembina Branch to the Eed Eiver, opposite
the Hudson Bay Company's Post of Lower Fort Garry.
The Superintendent at Winnipeg must refer to a bridge somewhere else. The
bridge I refer to is required where the drain crosses the great highway.

Dear Sir—Eeferring to your letter of 28th ult., I beg to report as follows :-
I thoroughly examined the outlet drain from the Pembina Branch to opposite
the Stone Fort, and found no bridge across it from the railway to Eed Eiver.    There 74
the drain crosses the highway between St. Boniface and Selkirk opposite the Stone
Fort; it will require a span of at least 60 feet.
I cannot find the slightest trace of any bridge ever having been built by Mr.
Haney in this neighborhood.

and your reply, of 12th April, 1881, respecting a bridge required over the railway
ditch on the Pembina Branch, Canadian Pacific Eailway, cut across the highway in
St. Andrews.
I am instructed by the Council to again urge upon your Department the necessity for an early decision in this matter, as the temporary means used to supply the
place of a bridge can no longer be relied on.
The Canadian Pacific Eailway Company have been applied to; but their solicitor
has given it as his opinion that the Government are alone responsible.

the Municipality of St. Andrews, Manitoba, respecting the building of a bridge by
Government over the railway off-take ditch of the Pembina Branch of the Canadian
Pacific Eailway, cannot be entertained.
I am, Sir, your obedient' servant,
A. P. BEADLEY, Secretary.
J. Macdougall, Clerk, St. Andrews.
Montreal, 23rd October, 1883.
Sir,—In August last you forwarded to the Secretary some correspondence which
had passed between your Department and the Clerk of the Municipality of St. Andrews
Manitoba, with reference to the building of a bridge across a certain drain running
from the Pembina Branch.
I have had the matter enquired into and send you, herewith, copy of a report
from our solicitor, from which it would appear that this is a matter which the Company should not be called upon to deal with.
I return all papers in this matter, and
Have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient servant,
W. C. VAN HOENE, General Manager.
A. P. Bradley, Secretary, Eailways and Canals. Winnipeg, 18th October, 1883.
- Dear Sir,—-Yours of the 16th inst., in the matter of a bridge over an off-take
drain at St. Andrews, has been received. It appears to me that there is some mistake
about the matter having been referred to me before. I think the only matter that
was referred to me, was a question of road crossings on the Pembina Branch. In
this matter, it seems that an offtake drain was constructed by the Government from
the Pembina Branch to the Eed Eiver, through the municipality of Kildonan and
crossing a highway between Selkirk and St. Boniface. The Government did not
provide a bridge across the drain so made connecting the highway cut by the drain,
and the matter was referred to us in this way by Mr. Bradley, the Secretary of the
Department of Eailways and Canals:—
" It appears to be a matter that should be dealt with by your Company." I must
confess that I think it would be highly undesirable for the Company to admit in any
way a liability to construct such a bridge, for if the Company undertook to do it; in
the event of the bridge being destroyed, they might be asked to repeat what they
had. previously undertaken to do, bridge the drain. The matter of looking after the
highway belongs to the municipality, and I feel quite certain in saying that they
cannot compel the Company to make the bridge. I cannot state as to how' far the
Government are liable for interfering with the highway, as I am not acquainted with
all the facts, and I do not know tho extent of the arrangements between the Government and the Company, as to the Company accepting any of the liabilities of the
Government, in connection with the Pembina Branch. The Pembina Branch is not
to be handed over to the Company till the completion of the Eastern and Central
Sections, and I understand that the Government, after the Company commenced to
run the Pembina Branch, completed the bridge at Dominion City. Why should
they not, if they are liable, put a bridge over this off-take drain ? I would refer you
to the letter of the 21st June, 1880, written by Mr. Eowan, in which he stated he
has given orders to have the bridge put in and also refer you to a letter of Mr.
Bradley, of 12th October, 1882, in which it is stated that the claim of St. Andrews
cannot be entertained, so that it would seem there is still a question as to the liability
by the Government to the municipality. I would also call your attention to the
apers which refer also to a bridge in St. Paul's Parish.    See Mr. Schreiber's letter of
M
ay, 1881.

(1) COEEESPONDENCE EELATING TO THE TEANSFEE AND OPERA-
TION OP THE THUNDEE BAY SECTION, POET AETHUE TO EAT
POETAGE, TO THE CANADIAN PACIFIC EAILWAY COMPANY.
Canadian Pacific Eailway Company,
Office of the Secretary, Montreal, 17th May, 1883.
Sir,—Eeferring to the negotiations which have been lately taking place  with a
view to the reception by this Company of the Thunder Bay Branch, from Rat Po
age to Prince Arthur's Landing, I am instructed by the directors of this Company
state that while the Company are prepared to take over this portion of the railwa
and equip and operate it, they have not as yet had time to complete the examination
of it as to the extent to which it has been completed, or to which its condition would
meet the requirements of the contract between the Government and the Company
—in order, therefore, W prevent any misconstruction hereafter, as to the position of
the Company in assuming possession of this portion of the railway, I am instructed
to say that it will be taken over by the Company,  under express reserve of the
rights of the  Company to have it completed in all respects in conformity with 76
the contract, to the same extent as if the Company were not now undertaking its
operation. , ,  ..       ,,   . ..
I am farther instructed to state that the Company have reason to believe that its
condition and state of preparation are open to all the objections contained in their
letter to the Department of Railways and Canals, under date the 2nd of February,
1882, with reference to the line between Telford and Eat Portage. In addition to
the points suggested in that letter, and without relinquishing any right of the Company in respect of any matter not designated here, 1 would indicate various timber
trestles aoross water stretches which, in the opinion of the Company, would require
to be filled, in whole or in part, to conform to the spirit of the contract, and it is
probable, also, that timber work of various bridges will require renewal, from decay
having taken place since such work was constructed.
Without further specifying details in which the Company believe the work
is undoubtedly incomplete. I have only to repeat that, in assuming this portion of
the railway, the Company do so under express resorve, not only of their rights in
respect of the matters referred to above and in their former letter, but also of all
other matters in connection with this section, which they would be entitled by their
eontractto have adjusted, if they had awaited the entire completion of the work before taking possession of it.
I have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient servant,
C. DBLNKWATEB, Secretary.
A. P. Bradley, Secretary, Eailways and Canals.
Canadian Pacific Eailway Company,
General Manager's Office, Montreal, 3rd July, 1883.
Sir,—In view of the great importance to the country of the early opening of the
line from Fort William.to Winnipeg, an arrangement was made between the Company
and the Hon. Minister of Eailways, early in May, whereby tbe section between Eat
Portage and Fert William was turned over to this Company in an incomplete condition, with the understanding that it should be finished by the Company and that the
cost thereof should be paid by the Government.
Owing to the necessity of immediate action, no details were agreed upon, except
that so much of the work as was covered by the contract of Manning, McDonald,
McLaren and Co., should be completed by the Company at contract prices, less
15 per cent., which had been allowed the contractors for preliminary work. This
work was all included in what is known as Contract 42.
The remaining sections, known as Contracts 41, 25 and 13, were also incomplete,
a large amount of ballasting and filling being required upon all of these, and in the
case of the two latter, upon which the track had been laid six to eight years, all of
the timber structures and a large proportion of the ties required renewal at an early
date.
At many stations between Eat Portage and Fort William, the side tracks were
incomplete, and in some cases, none had yet been provided.    At each of the two
divisional points, 9,600 feet of side track and an engine house track had yet to be pro-
• vided.
The water service was only suitable for construction purposes and not for regular
traffic, and 20 frost proof tanks were required.
No depots had been erected save one at Eat Portage. The Government had put
6 under contract, but 25 more were necessary. A number of houses built of logs for
the use of the engineers during construction, had been erected along the line. These
the Company hold to be unfit for depots, although they will answer for section houses.
But if they are so used, 27 additional section houses will be needed. Two engine
sheds and turn-tables, each to hold 12 engines, are also necessary.
Aside from the ordinary work of construction, a large expenditure of labor will
be required m replacing ties and removing bent rails from the main line and relaying
them m sidings, and work of similar character. 11
When the line between Selkirk and Cross Lake was taken over by this Company
in 1881, ii large amount of ballasting had yet to be done, and it was agreed that the
Company should complete this for the Government at a price agreed upon. The
Government have paid nothing on this account as yet.
The section between Cross Lake and Eat Portage, was turned'over to the Company in 1882, without depots or section houses, save a number of engineers' houses,
which may be utilized for the latter purposes. On this section five depots are
needed.
It is already apparent that many difficult and embarrassing questions will arise
in connection with the final completion of the railway, and with a view to avoiding
these and to securing the completion of the line and buildidgs, in conformity with
the standards of the Company, which in most cases differ from those of the Government, the Company desire to propose to relieve the Government of the entire work
for a lump 6um.
I beg, therefore, to submit the following proposition: The Company will undertake, for the sum of $940,000, to complete, in a first-class manner, the entire lino from
Selkirk to Fort William, and provide all sidings and all depots, section houses, engine
sheds, and all other usual and necessary structures, and make all renewals of ties and
bridges, and do all other necessary work, provided that the Government shall complete and pay for the six depot buildings now under contract, and shall furnish the
necessary rails and fastenings (which are understood to be already on hand) for the
completion of all station sidings, to a length of 1,600 feet, and for 9,600 feet of sidings
at each of two divisional points, and for an engine-house track, 700 feet in length, at
each of said points, provided also that the Company may be free to follow their own
standards where standards have been adopted, and to arrange all stations, buildings,
&c., as they may deem best for the convenient operation of the railway.
The Company will also take over and pay the Government the co->t price of any
ties or timber, or other material now on hand, that may be required for the completion of the line. The Company will also take over and pay their fair market value
for any rails or fastenings that may remain, after providing for the sidings, as before
mentioned.
In tbis connection, I would draw attention to the fact that the line between
Thunder Bay and Winnipeg, while its local traffic for some years to come will be
light, will have a through traffic mainly competitive, requiring to be carried out at a
reasonable rate of speed, and the character of the road, as well as the facilities to be
provided for business, must necessarily be far beyond what would be required for a
mere local line, and, while the lump sum named is believed to be much less than it
would cost the Government to complete the line in accordance with the letter of the
contract with the Company, a very large additional amount will have to be expended
bv the Company in strengthening dangerous points, in providing additional facilities,
and generally in making the line all that it should be for the traffic it will have to
carry.
I have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient servant,
W. C. VAN HOENE.
P S —The foregoing communication having been returned to me for explanation as to certain points, I beg to say that the sum named, $940,000, is exclusive of
the -15 per cent deducted from the train work on Contract 42, and if this item is to
be considered in this connection, the amount should be added to the lump sum,
making it $981,200. I beg to say, also, that the Company will consent to the deduction of $13,643, being the value of the temporary trestles on Contract 42, where no
filling has been done.

Hon. J. H. Pope, Acting Minister Eailways and Canals. 78
Canadian Pacific Eailway,
Office of the Engineer in-Chief, Ottawa, 4th, July 1883.
Sir—Mr Van Home's letter of the 3rd inst., making a proposal on behalf of
the Canadian Pacific Eailway Company, for a bulk sum of nine hundred and forty
thousand dollars ($940,000) to complete the works upon contracts A and ±5, the Dai-
lasting upon Contract 14, the renewals of bridges, ties, &c, upon the section of road
between Prince Arthur's Landing and English Eiver, the erection of station houses,
engine houses, section men's houses and the water service, in fact, to do everything
necessary to complete the road thoroughly and efficiently, having been referred to
me, I have the honor to report that if the 15 per cent, on the train filling referred to
by Mr. Van Horne, which amounts to $41,200, be added to the sum of $940,000, it
appears that his estimate of the cost of-work is $981,200.
I carefully investigated this matter and made an estimate of $179,000, which is
practically the same as^his. I therefore recommend that his figures of $981,200 be
accepted as being, in my judgment, fair and reasonable.
From this sum, as I understand it,,should be deducted certain items referred to
in the Order in Council upon this subject, dated the 30th April, 1883.
I have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient servant,
C. SCHEEIBEE, Chief Eugineer.
A. P. Bradley, Secretary, Eailways and Canals.
(Memorandum.) Ottawa, 5th July, 1883.
The undersigned has the honor to represent that under date the 3rd inst., the
Canadian Pacific Eailway Company have submitted a proposition for the completion
of the several works remaining to be done on the line between Selkirk and Prince
Arthur's Landing, the portion of which, between Selkirk and Telford, was transferred to them by an Order in Counoil of the 9th April, 1881, and the portion between Telford and Eat Portage, by an Order of the 12th of January, 1882.
That, by an order of the 30th April last, sanction was given to an arrangement
whereby the contractors for section " B " might be enabled to surrender to the Canadian Pacific Eailway Company their work still remaining unexecuted, together with
the operation of the road eastward to Prince Arthur's Landing, then conducted by
them, the object being the avoidance of the difficulty and danger which would attach
to the running of construction and passenger trains under different control, and since
the ^Oth of May last, the Canadian Pacifio Eailway Company have, accordingly, conducted this traffic.
That the Company now propose to complete the line, erecting the necessary station buildings, and providing the water service, work which, under the 7th section
of their contract, rests with the Government; further performing such work of bridge
and tie renewals, &c, between Prince Arthur's Landing and English Eiver, and to
carry out such ballasting work and the constructions of engine houses, &c, as may
be requisite in order to complete the road thoroughly and efficiently. These works
they undertake to perform for the bulk sum of nine hundred and twenty-six thousand
dollars ($926,000), and under date the 4th inst., the Chief Engineer has reported to
the effect that the amount named is fair and reasonable, and approximates very closely
to his own estimate of the value of the work to be done.
That the contract date for the completion of the section " B " is the first of the
current month, and this being the latest of the dates fixed for the completion of the
work of construction between Eat Portage and Prince Arthur's Landing, it follows
that the Company have now the right, under the terms of their contract, to expect
the whole of this portion of the road at the hands of the-Government. In this view
and bearing in mind the impracticability of carrying on the works of operation and'
construction under other than one control, the Chief Engineer advises that the offer
of the Company be accepted.
The undersigned, considering the circumstances of the case and the injurious
delays and difficulties which the adoption of any other course would entail, recom- 19
mends that in the public interests, authority be given for the acceptance of the offer
now made by the Company, the work to be performed, in all respects, to the full satisfaction of the Chief Engineer, and to be paid for in such proportions as may be fixed
from time to time by his certificate.
Eespectfully submitted,
J. H. POPE, Acting Minister Railways and Canals.
Certified Copy of a Report of a Committee' of the Honorable the Privy Council,
approved by His Excellency the Govornor General in Council on the 9th July, 1883.
On a memorandum dated 5th July, 1883, from the Acting Minister of Eailways
and Canals, representing that under date the 3rd July, inst., the Canadian Pacific
Eailway Company have submitted a proposition for the completion of the several
works remaining to be done on the line between Selkirk and Prince Arthur's Landing, the portion of which between Selkirk and Telford, was transferred to them by
an Order in Council of the 9th April, 1881, and the portion between Telford and Eat
Portage by an Order in Council of the 12th of January, 1882.
The Minister further represents that by an Order in Council of the 30th of April
last, sanction was granted to an arrangement whereby the contractors for Section
"B," between Keewatin (a short distance west of Eat Portage) and Eagle Eiver,
might be enabled to surrender to the Canadian Pacific Eailway Company the work
still remaining unexecuted, together with the operation of the road east to Prince
Arthur's Landing, then conducted by them, the object being the avoidance of the
difficulty and danger which would attach to the running of construction and passenger trains under different control, and since the 10th of May last the Canadian
Pacific Eailway Company have conducted the traffic accordingly.
The Minister also states that the Company now propose to complete the line,
erecting the necessary station buildings and providing the water service, work
which, under the 7th section of their contract, rests with the Government, and
further performing such work of bridge and tie renewal, &c, between Prince Arthur's
Landing and English Eiver,. ballasting and engine-house construction as may be
required to complete the road thoroughly and efficiently. These works they undertake to perform for the bulk sum of nine hundred and twenty-six thousand dollars
($926,000), and under date the 4th inst., the Chief Engineer has reported to the effect
that the amount named is fair and resonable, and approximates very closely to his
own estimate of the value of the work to be done, and that the contract date for the
completion of Section " B," between Eagle Eiver and Keewatin, was the first of the
current month, and this being the latest of all dates fixed for the completion of the
works of construction between Eat Portage and Prince Arthur's Landing, it follows
that the Company have now the right, under the terms of their contract, to expect
the whole of this portion of the road at the hands of the Government. In this view,
and bearing in mind the impractibility of carrying on the works of operation and
construction under other than the one control, the Chief Engineer advises that the
offer of the Company be accepted.
The Minister, considering the circumstances of the case and the injurious delays
and difficulties which the adoption of any other course would entail, recommends
that, in the public interest, authority be given for the acceptance of the offer now
made by the Company, the work to be performed in all respects to the full satisfaction of the Chief Engineer, and to be paid in such proportion as may be fixed from
time to time by his certificate. .
The Committee concur in the report of the Acting Minister of Eailways and
Canals and the recommendation therein, and they submit the same for Your Excellency's approval.

Canadian Pacific Eailway Company,
Office of the General Manager, Montreal, 11th July, 1883.
Sir,—I have had a careful examination made of thd rolling stock belonging to
the Government on the line between Fort William and Eat Portage, and which I
understand you desire this Company to take at its value.
Some of this rolling stock is very old, and all of it has seen hard usage in construction service. There are eight different kinds of locomotives, and many varieties
of platform cars. In no respect does any of this equipment conform with any of our
standards, and this fact, together with its mixed character, largely detracts from its
value to this Company.
The platform cars were built for ten or twelve-ton loads; four of the locomotives
are unfit for further service. Our standard locomotives can now be built for $8,000
each, and our standard flat cars, built to carry twenty tons, now cost $425 each; the
following is therefore thought to be a very liberal offer for the equipment in
question:—
For all freight cars  %   217 each.

That in consequence of the completion of the works, the need for the operation
of these Acts no longer existing, the districts comprised in the distances between Selkirk and Eat Portage, and in the limits of the Town of Eat Portage itself, have been
declared, by authority of Orders in Council, no longer subject to the Acts in question,
leaving the line between Eat Portage and Port Arthur still so subject.
That under date the 6th ult, the Canadian Pacific Eailway Company have
