I would inquire from the minister if there is a suit pending, or some commission inquiring into a bargain that was made between the Intercolonial and the Grand Trunk when the Intercolonial was extended into Montreal, as to the Grand Trunk handling the traffic not specially routed to be handled over the Intercolonial. I ask, because I can inform the minister that I know of a case where freight was specially routed to be handed over to the Intercolonial at Montreal, and instead of going that way it was sent through to Boston. The bill of lading was to Montreal and thence by the Intercolonial to Halifax. 1 saw the bill of lading myself.
