September, A.D. 1910
Re complaint of J. H. Conrad, alleging excessive freight rates charged by the White Pass & Yukon route on ores from Carcross to Skagway and mining machinery and camp supplies from Skagway to Carcross.

Upon hearing the complaint in presence of complainant and S. H. Graves, representing the White Pass & Yukon Route,

it is ordered:

  1. That the British Yukon Ry. Co., the British Columbia Yukon Ry. Co., the Pacific and Arctic Ry. and Navigation Co., and the White Pass and Yukon Ry. Co. forthwith cease and desist from discriminating against the applicant and in favor of the Atlas Mining Co., R. R. Neil and W. D. Greenough, and any and all of the said parties.
  2. That the said railway companies cease and desist from discriminating in favor of the locality in which the Atlas Mining Co.'s properties are located and against the locality in which the applicant's mines are located.
  3. That the said railway companies file with the Board tariffs showing the rates granted to the Atlas Mining Co. pursuant to the contract entered into between the Pacific and Arctic Ry. and Navigation Co. and British Yukon Ry. Co. and the Atlas Mining Co., dated March 21, 1910.
  4. That the said railway companies file with the Board a tariff amending, or supplemental to C.R.C. 9, issued Sept. 16, 1909, by the Pacific and Arctic Ry. and Navigation Co., the British Columbia Yukon Ry. Co., forming, as appears from the said tariff, "The White Pass & Yukon Route," giving carload rates of $1.75 a ton on ore and concentrates from Caribou to Skagway.
  5. That the said railway companies grant to all shippers of ore and concentrates upon their line or lines of railway, proportionate rates and privileges at least as favorable as those granted to as those granted to the Atlas Mining Co. under the said contract.
  6. That the said railway companies, in due course, obtain for the applicant, if he notifies them in writing that he requires them so to do, the same or as favorable ocean rates as they have obtained for the Atlas Mining Co.; or, in the event of the said railway companies being unable to obtain the same or as favorable ocean rates for the applicant, then they are to cease and desist from obtaining discriminating ocean rates for the Atlas Mining Co.
  7. That the said railway companies grant to the applicant exactly the same treatment as to wharfage at Skagway as that granted by the contract to the Atlas Mining Co., and handle the applicant's ore, and that of all other shippers over their lines, upon terms and conditions as to wharfage and otherwise exactly similar to that granted by the contract to the said Atlas Mining Co.
  8. That the tariffs referred to in paragraphs 3 and 4 be filed on or before Nov. 1, 1910.
  9. That the other matters covered by the applicant's complaint stand for disposition in connection with the complaints of the Dawson Board of Trade against the White Pass and Yukon Route.
