Manufacturers'_Association of  Canada for the publication of statements to the ' effect that':.bis Com-,  pany charged a rale on floui of S.2.-  70 per hundred pounds.' Mr. Lee  says in reply, '-This rate' is $1.75  per 106'pounds, not $2.70, and further, this rate of-St.75 isa maxi-  muin distan.ee tariff rate and not in  any way .the actual competitive or  proportionate rate 'demanded or collected."        .      '  To Mr. Lee"s" denial   ot'the ��2.70  Kite the "Star "says:"  "Mr. Lee must surely have been  under the impression that the circulation of the 'Globe' was confined 10 the Province of Ontario,  and that the bald-headed mis-statement would never reach those who  have to suffer, because of the grinding, grasping, cii.ching monopoly  of which he is the rate-mouth. -Mr.  Lee's.statement is intended to act  as a lie, if he docs not, strictly  s; e.tking, utter it."  The "Star," -in   or'der to be in a  position to  refute   Mr. Lee's det.ial  of tlie $2:70   rate',   made   searching  inquiries 'arcund    White  'Horse as  to   ,rales,   charged   importers,   and  quote talcs   in   detail   which show  .   rates upon   groceries   as averaging  $3.75 in class  "A," $4.00   in   class  "B," and in class   "CM   or $4.50  per 100 pounds, or  a   general  ave-  '���rage  oi  $3.99   2-5 per   100.    On. a  small shipment   of  690 pounds the  average   rate  of  $4.44    7'10   was  ��� charged for the haul of  in   miles,  "Skagway   to-White   Horse. - The  "Star-"   says, "We will be explicit  in   every   detail,   and   will verify  every statement made in this article  under   oath,   if  Mr.   Lee  has the  temerity to  intimate  a doubt of its  "whole truthfullness." ;  ��� ���'��� In conclusion of the first article,  the " Star " says, "One other., fact  for the benefit of the Manufacturers'  Association of Canada as well as  for shippers generally.

"  fit the local Agent, Mi.

Again, that G. F.  O. .tariff slieel.'-"No. 12, was in operative, existence, and that this tariff  provides for the rate of Si.75 for,the  distance mentioned," viz., ��� 95 'miles.
