It is ordered that railway companies making application to open for traffic under sec. 261 of the Railway Act (as distinct from obtaining, under subsec. 7, as amended, of the aforesaid section, leave to carry traffic where, because of the needs of settlers or other urgent condition, public convenience will be served thereby) be required, before opening for the carriage of traffic any extensions of the existing railway systems west of Lake Superior, to publish and file the appropriate supplementary special class or "town" tariffs, mileage commodity tariffs, and special tariffs on grain the Lake Superior terminals, and on lumber from British Columbia, as these may be applicable to the territories to be served by the said new lines, in addition to the standard mileage tariffs therefor.
