In view of the peculiar issuance of stock* it. is a  tpre.stiem for- lawyers 'Ici' decide  which stock participates in tin-* profits  of the sale.

M r.  Haskins or the- company hut was there  for- certain   shareholders   and   was iu-  tcreste'el   in   see-ing  that,  the   property  fetched tlm   price of  the judgment at.  h'.-isl.    lie  told ;ui    interesting  slcry.  He -aid Haskins   had  arranged   to dispose of his jiiclgntent  to a   party  who  would   liny   up  tlie claim  ut a certain  , figuie,   put., up ii certain   sum   for   development, and make good shareholders  stock.'   Three, iln'vs  after   agreements  ,   had been made, Haskins withdrew and  .-viid he  was  going  to epiit.  the whole-  thing, being only   interested   in seeing  the judgment   obtained   to   protect his  wife, who had advahe-eel money.   Then  Cowan,, barrister,    wa.-   employed   by  . Haskins  and   he'1 arranged   in   time to  look after- the judgment  interest,.-it. the  , sale, and he under-stood that Mr.-, iFas-  kins had now received a cheque1 for lhe.'  amount of her claim.    He said the property ive'nt cheap and the surplus over  the   judgment,     weiuld      he       divided  amongst., the  shareholders.     As  lo  it,  heing divided amongst, all slock   issued  <n-���������oiily  treasury stock.' he   would   not  yet say. hut  he  was   inclined   to think  on all disposed  .stock   nf the company.

Indeed, Davidson is reported to have;  saiel lhal, hi1 was pie-pared lo go $20,000  for the pi-opei ly, hut no one pti-hed  hiui .-incl he got. it instead for $0,200.

It, i-, too, a matter,of astonishment  to'-Tnost' people  why Haskins, the man  who   floated   this   company and   who  held (it is said   he transferred hi.- holding shortly before, the sale) the  largest  holding- in it, should  seek oto cm harass  it by. getting a judgment, against it. and  finally kill it hy letting it go .into the  hands of a  strange  proprietor.

It  could b������- understood, too, had a private,  party a  judgment   against > the   company, if Haskins had come' to'its relief  or money  raised  on   the  value of  the  claim to release it.    Nothing like  this  is done, however, hut.  we  see Haskins  voluntarily  distressing  his own   company and letting il go out of his hands  ,;witliout.   an   effort   to   save  it or the'  people who bought from him.

The C-P.R. give up   their Monopoly  Privileges to Get It.    ���������  ��������� ���������  Although the federal government  lias, air yet, made no oflicial declaration  to parliament rt'tf.-mlirij-; the Cio-.v's  Nest road, ii- policy upon thin important muli'ilakiiiK M'l'uis. lo be'set tied.  The Ottawa correspoin]cnt of llie  .Globe, which is pcrsumably in the eon-  * fidence of the j-overnment, says :  "The government have decided upon  a definite pm^ranime to ptovide for  the construe I ion of the Crow's Xe-sl  railway. This prograniine involve-, a  frraiitof $10,00!) per mile to the O.P.K.  for, 5115 miles, over which the ('row's  Ke-( e>:l elision vvill i mi, in re-l urn for  the 'i-urn-nder of certain monopoly  ��������� clause- in the original fr,iuchi-e, the  reduction of freight rate- on all i'dt't-*  of the (.'.

"It vvill b" ren'ieiubere-d   that   in the  ��������� early part of M.-inh tlie C.P.K. filed  ]il,-ins for .-'in extension through the  pass.. According to't he original 'eh.yrler  the filing of lhe.*-e plan* gave the company the right to con-liiiet' the line  and iim; any litml, belonging lo 'the  Dominion on tbe route nociss.iry for*'  the right-of-way. It is now .-.luted the  ollicial- of the  railway departinenl did  '.not admit the company's right to pro-  ceeil -imply upon the filing of I best1  plans, and tli.tt. the govcrnment's-posi-  l,ion in e-iirrying on negotiations was'  sti-cnuthencd by tJiej-e'fi-.Mil to concede  that the filing of plans in itself gave'1  .���������i'iiv right lo occupy lhe(.pass.  "The movement for government  con-trnclion of t'he road, which at one  time threatem-il lo become loi lilidilble.  has complelijly flalfeneil.

THE  C P.M.  ACCEPTS.
