The usual trip to Lothbrldgo which can now be made any day will require two nights and one full day under the proposed sclicdulo and people very re luctantly will give up the privilege of the daily mail. It will hurt more than all the food regulations combined. Representatives from Stirling were present and wished also to register a kick. Mayor O'Brien and W. T. Ogden vere named as delegates. The Taylor Stake conference was held at Raymond on Saturday and Sunday last. The meeting house was packed wltli people.

A largo part of their Instruction �was that good homo conditions should be made and that children should bo '-^tutored and trained In al! good. High 1 ^Ideals in honor and virtus and patriotism and mental culture "Oiould bo hold up before them every day at the homo circle. Their rcIigio;�� in.sU-uct!on should not be left alo�e to the church organizations. Apostle Lyman explained the falla-tlllty of all men which explained how many'errors have crt-pt into religious instruction in all ago* but that God Is infallable. lie chaiwtes not and His purposes will flnallr be corisumatod, but that is all dona by means of men �who always use tU�lr own individuality and agency. PRESENTPROTESl TO CPi OFFICIA (Canadian Press Dltspatch from Reuters Limited.) Montreal, Aug. 15.-The following Jettor lifts been sent to Field Marshal Haig by King George: "France, Aug. 13, 1918.-My Dear Field Marahpl: At the beginning of tho fifth year of tUo �war I again have the pleasure of being with my armies.. Writing to you after my last visit on March 30, and alluding to the then necessary withdrawal from certain of our positions, I dwelt upon the impression made upon me by the splendid Spirit of the troops which I saw during tjieso days; Subsequent events have given ample proof that this was a true impression, tor never since that time has tlio spirit of the-army faltered. "We have seen re-asserting itself and carrying to a triumphal issue the cperatlons of the last week. On these Jiappy results I must warmly congratulate you and tho t^0OI)s that fouglit BO magnificently under your command. I gratefully ro90gnize this high niorala Is in part the outcome ot hearty co-�i operation between the fighting army ii. and the groat organizations behind I'Stho line, the transport service by land ' �'and sea and these vast Industries in which women at homo maintain the supplies of food and munitions of War. "I have heard on all sides of tho great value of the machine gun corps in tho flghtlng lino and .this was brought home to mo by the line appearance of tho detachments which 1 la^saw In.the difforont areas. I inspected I" detachments of the Uoyal Air Force, Its prowess and establlsUed Buperlor-Ity over the enemy made me-proud to tie general In chief of this last creation In tho flghtlng forces of the world, It was especially satisfactory that I was able to see the work of th^ tank corps and thus to form some Blight idea on the part of tills wonderful and steady developing invention has played in the present victorious biitUa." ., (Special to the Ilenild) Warner, Aug. IB.-A strong.protest was presented to Superintendent Cameron of the C.P.U. when ho passed 'througlf Warner this afternoon on hia way north, regarding the proposed change in the passenger train aervico on this branch. Among those who presented tliomselves at tlio superintendent's private car were J. 11. S. Gordou, C. Kagan, G. H. Burke, J. H. Glynn, \V. B. Browne, A. P. 'Veale, S. Tenney, W. L. Misensolis, F. W. Fred-erlch^ T. M. Willlnms and several others. There was not sutticient time tor the views of the Warner business men and farmers to be properly pre .sented, but the feeling here was partially expressed by Mr. Gordon who said that not only would the lack O'f a daily supply of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as fish which the gov eminent has requested the people to use work a great hardship to the peo pie o� the district but also the inability of the merchants and dealers to obtain repairs as required with dispatch tend to cause loss and delay to the farmers in their harvesting and seeding opera tlons. Mr. Cameron started to reply to the brief remarks of Mr. Gordon by saying that whilst he appreciated all tho inconvenience and loss which the curtailment of the train service might occasion, at tho same time tho C.P.R. had to look after themselves and guard themselves against loss. He went on to quote figures showing that this station had shown a decided loss as compared with the previous years. We understand tliat protests were also made by tho business men ot Milk River and New Dayton as the train passed through those points and it would appear that tho south country is united in its feeling against the action of the C.P.R. at tho present time. It was unfortunate that Mr.' -Cameron could not have stayed for a few min utes longer so that the matter could have been discussed more fully: What the people of this district feel may be expressed in the words of one man who said that the C.P.R. can take our money while times are good but when times are bad they can still make money by making times worse for us. The C.P.R. can still pay their dividends while the farmer and tho business man in this south country Is working at a loss and must now Tie further handicapped whilst tho C.P.R. is able to reduce its expenses at tho cost of the small commimities who must do business and which are for greater expenses next year under worse handicaps than have existed heretofore. The C.P.R. makes Its money out of the farmers and business men in good years and good monoy at that, whilst when a poor year comes along the feeling was expressed that the C.P.R. and Us wealthy shareholders should share with the people Bomo of tho hard luck. employed by the department who was not a member of the union and to have made certain remarks to him which were construed by the chief as being contrary to departmental discipline.
