File no. 19907

Upon its appearing to the Board that comparison of freight, passenger, express, telephone and telegraph schedules, with those which they supersede or amend, should be facilitated; and in pursuance of the powers conferred upon the Board by section 324 of the Railway Act, 1919; and upon the report and recommendation of the Chief Traffic Officer of the Board,—

It is ordered: That all freight, passenger, express, telephone and telegraph tariffs, and supplements thereto, applying between points in Canada, or from a point in Canada to a foreign country, hereafter filed with the Board, shall, except as herein after provided, indicate advances thereby made by the symbol "A" and reductions by the symbol R with the necessary explanatory note, in the following manner, namely:—

  1. In schedules which show the rates opposite the stations: The proper symbol to be shown against each rate, or each rule or regulation, changed.
  2. In schedules in which the rates appear in a table separated from the station list:—
    1. Unless the station groupings have been varied relatively to their rates; the proper symbol to be shown in the rate table in the manner prescribed in section 1 hereof;
    2. If the station groupings have been varied relatively to their rates; the proper symbol to be shown against the reference on the station page to the rate table and against each rule or regulation changed.

    Provided that if it is found impracticable in a certain case to indicate changes by either of the methods herein prescribed, application may be made to the Board, accompanied by a printer's proof of the proposed schedule, for relief from the provisions of this Order in such case.

And it is also ordered: That the character of the schedule be shown at the top of the title page, thus:—

Advance. Reduction.
Reissue. New Rate or (Rates).

and so on, as the case may be.

And it is further ordered: That the Order of the Board No. 16900, dated the 27th day of June, 1912, be, and the same is hereby, rescinded.
