Vancouver "Wharf
Storage   chargea   on   sub-deliveries
Referring  to  your  letter January 25th/$6.
I have  noted the  instructions which you have  issued to Agent
on  this   subject,  and  would advise   that   the Vice-President has
agreed,   in principle,   to the change.    We have  decided,
however,   that   while bills  vail  only be  rendered when final
delivery is  effected,   it will still be necessary for Agent
to make monthly assessment   of storage,  debit   to be   taken
monthly  on   the balance sheet,   and  amounts     carried
outstanding until final delivery,  when bill  for the total
amount due villi be rendered.     There  is  also  the  point you
raise with respect  to  the  value   of  goods  remaining in  our
possession fully covering all storage   charges  that  may be  due
against   the   entire   consignment.    It  is   possible,   in some
cases,   for  us   to have,  at a  given date, a slight advantage
in  the  value  of goods  on hand,  but  if  this   remainder vie re
to  remain  in  storage  for any lengthy period after  that  date,
then   the accruing storage would  rapidly eat   up any advantage
ne held,   and   finally leave us   at  a  disadvantage.  This   is
a  feature  that   will have  to be   carefully watched. Will you
please  issue  further necessary instructions   to Agent,  and
let  me have   copy of   same.

Dear sir:*
Vancouver Wharf
Storage cnargee on eub-deliverie*.
Referring to your  letter December 28th.
Fourth paragraph of my letter December 13th,1934,
intended that it wa* not necessary to asses* storage each time any
portion of consignment waa being delivered, but that storage bill*
should in any caee be rendered monthly.
Sowever, it i* an acknowledged fact that the Ballantyne
"Dock do not collect any storage on these distribution consignments until
making tn* final delivery, regardles* of how long such goods mmy  have
remained on their dock.
i would alee mention that in the handling of their
etorage on Canned ?i*h in Store,bill* are only rendered monthly instead
of at each delivery, a* is our system. In fact; for some time they did
not bill any storage charge* until the Lot had been completely delivered,
but I understand that they suffered &Qm®  severe losses under that
system, value of final balance not being worth the accrued storage*
ihile import shipment* for distribution frequently
remain* on our dock more than thirty day* before completely delivered,
the final balance of one or more package* will, without doubt,alway*
fully protect any storage due on the entire consignment.
The attached copy of Agent1* latter to Mr. KelT&fe will xJca I
show that storage bills covering shipment under question were rendered
at interval*, not on a weekly or monthly basi*. However, the rendering
of several storage bill* against the one consignment is irritating to
the consignee, aluo to the broker who is obliged to recover the&»
expenee* when we bill them.
I am satisfied that storage due our Company will be
duly collected at time of final delivery, and I am taking the liberty
to instruct agent that he may so arrange. See copy my  letter date to him.
It is, however, understood that when a firm request*
our holding a large consignment for an indefinite period, and arrange*
for same to be stored under the monthly rate of.500 par ton, bill*
are to be renedred monthly. #2.  P.   Arnum,  Ssq.f
The method of assessing storage weekly was established
in 1926,   in connection with my report #2286,  but it must be admitted
that thi*  arrangement frequently embarasse*  the Freight Traffic Dept..
These instruction* ^erm modified,  as per suggestion
made my letter ^Tov.22/34 and your reply Dec.6th,  file* L-3i4401 -
314438,  but I consider that this  further concession can be granted
in connection with theee import consignment*.

Dear Sir  :
* It  is the practice here to assess Storage
weekly on any occasion where consignees or their Agents
have taken delivery of part of their shipments.      This
is according to your arrangement.
Messrs Turnbull Bros,  are now complaining
that their clients are taking exception to this arrangement
on account  of the number of bills submitted for each consignment.       They represent Langfelder B^os.  *Tew York,  Morimura
Bros. Wew York and Hacking & Co.  and various other out of
town  Gompa^ys1.      They have submitted  a  request that  only
one  storage bill be made out  and this at the  completion
of delivery on any consignment.
I might  state that  other dock company's  in
Vancouver are extending this privilege and there  Is
no doubt  that  for this reason they object  to the numerous
accounts from this office*

of four accounts made out against

final account on September  23rd for 14  j •
esfers.  Hacking & Co.   Ltd.  have  evidently overlooted the
fact  that  the monthly storage rate applies  on weight  or measurement
as per ships1  manifest.     This  consignment measured  594  feet  and
it was   therefore  considerably  cheaper  in their  case to  pay  on the
basis  of the  2000 lb.   rate.

»++«„•_ _ +u      +Refeffir^ to yeur letter February 22nd and paper©
attached thereto,   whieh ar© returned herewith.
Irery rea_©_atol© precaution B.  Arnum, leq. t #2,
necessitated that all storage expense bill* be passed through checkers,
but I find that instructions issued by agent,  Sept,24/30,  permitted
such bill* to go directt# record* clerk for filing.
It is desirable that checker* should see erery storage
bill, as  evidence that &®me. had been duly issued,  and I have altered the
method of handling so  that checkers will be included in the responsiblli-
-ty of protecting storage that ha* net be«m protected at the time
consignee take* out the delivery order.
A storage fr# book has bees handed to cashier and all
storage expanse bill* will be proed and recorded by him at time of
issue.  All We.21* to be passed through checkers for attachment to
delivery orders,  and all necessary copies to be lifted daily "by the

Re %/b 224,  Storage #24.78. Wharfage #1-6.§2
Agent shanghai issued through b/Ej 346 for shipment
destined Wew York, but agreed to hold shipment at Vancouver until
September idtk. Mr. Mclffab, under hi* file C-76282,  issued the necessary
instruction* to hold shipment and advised Agent Shanghai that he would
do se, but pointing out that such request was out of order and that
shipment* should not be accepted under suck conditions.
Mr. XcKfcfc's file show* that he was prepared to waive
storage, but the question ®f wharfag# doe* not appear t# have been
raised until  shipment wa* being forwarded overland,  peeords show that,
on September 15th,  chief biller passed a memo,  te asst*  cashier
requesting that bill* be made out covering storage and wharfmg«,  and
that all copies b# handed to chief clejrk for attention.
Asst1  Cashier evidently misplaced the copy of t>/g and
biller1*  request and no one checked up on the matter.  Chief Biller
evidently had been verbally instructed that the terminal charges were
not to be advanced againat the shipment,  and considered that hie
responsibility ended after requesting bill* to be issued and handed
chief clerk. The latter cannot recall the circumstances,  but ie
satisfied that th« debit* were to be placed and bill* sent Mr. MeXfak
fmw collation of olearan&e.
It is tfHBk daily necessary for the wharf staff te
phon# the foreign "Freight Department in connection witk import or
export shipments,  and tUL concerned have beam repeatedly warned to see
to it that any matter ef importanoe,  involving charges,etc.$ waa
followed up by confirming letter.   Mo doubt Mr. McWa"br« import el^rtt B. Arnum, Isq. # 3
had verbally instructed tbat their office would arrange clearance of
terminal charge* involved.
At this shipment wa* covered by loading slip and being
held aa a shipment in transit, no expense bill wa* issued and it is
a case when* we must rely upon the chief biller to protect any terminal
charge* that may be assessable.-
lfh^ Eauue situation arise* should an export shipment be
stopped at Vancouver and diverted to a local point. We are obliged
to depend upon the steamship manifest clerk making the aeeeaeaxy
increase in rail charges and protecting uny  terminal chargea that m.Bj
be due. V%ry  few shipment* are subject to auch diversion and it is
practically impossible to set up a system that would provide a proper
heck against the occasional shipment that is hfld or diverted »
Uf* McWak i* arr anting to clear the storage, and has
requested Mr. Chudleigh to collect wharfage, #16.52, from the
consignees at ^ew Yofk. Wtm  rhudleighfd file 5573 ^gbruwir?  2§tk cover*,
If storage ia being cleared on the ground that ®mr

"Dear sir:-

Additional Storage Charges on shipments sub-delivered
ry report #2286 -farch 31st/26.dealt with the question
of placing debit each week for storage  accruing on consignments being
sub-delivered.   !four files L-314401  and 314438 also bat a connection,
and irr.  McCre4?«j   instructions  of March 29th/26,   to his  staff,fully
explained the system and detail   involved.
The #eakly debits for additional storage are v®ry eft**
petty,   and the application of .monthly storage rates provided in Tariff
£45 complicates matters  and necessitates adjustments.
billing zhe consignee with sjraall amounts,   covering
deliveries made within a weak,   is also xi^iiAjpbs irritating,   and in
some instances brokers  *vill  not pay such storage bills until  the
consignment has  been completely delivered.
To  save time of expense clerk and accounting staff,
j would suggest that it only be necessary to bill storage monthly,
or at  time ®£ delivery of consignment is completed,*
Any st«**age due at  tha time of taking out delivery
order will,  of course, be &si$fia*4 in the usual way,  but additional
storage be only billed against consignee when- a balance of consignment
remains undelivered at  the  end of thirty days.
The amount involved would not be serious  and I  am
arrangement would be more satisfactory to all concerned*
This proposed arrangement would not  apply to large import
on our docks  for consolidation or for forwardance
consignments are usually handled under instructions of
the Foreign freight Agent and monthly storage bills rendered to cover.
Will you plaass approve my suggestion and authorise me
to instruct  Agent accordingly•
