Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SPROTJLE (reading) :

-any dispute as to the proper divisions of such earnings shall be determined by arbitrators to be appointed in the manner provided by paragraph forty-seven of this agreement.
But remember that refers only to the eastern aud western divisions. The amendment which I move refers to the Grand Trunk Railway, which has a line of its own over which a portion of the traffic will be carried, and as the Grand Trunk is the .party interested iu having the payment deferred, it would naturally aim at taking for itself the larger share of the earnings to be divided between the Grand Trunk and the Grand Trunk Pacific, so as to show that the Grand Trunk Pacific was not earning sufficient to justify its payment of its obligations.
