Hon. Mr. GRAHAM:

1 and 2. Railway accounting methods do not provide for the taking out of such information concerning inter-company material, except at much cost of time and labour and the dislocation of the necessary railway business of serving the public.

3. (a) and (c) There were no charges at any time during the year on shipments of coal

from the Maritime provinces, or from Brule Mines, Alberta.

(b) Subsequent to May 1 (date of consolidation) coal received for the system via Massena Springs, Cobourg and Black Rock was moved free; prior to that date, between January 1, 1923, and April 30, the following amount of revenue was accrued: via Massena Springs, $158,876.06; via Cobourg, $4,471.51; via Black Rock, $28,463.40.

(d) We have 3,646,711 net tons of coal on hand for the system at December 31, 1923. It is impossible to state the amount of freight, if any, included in this inventory at the close of the year.
