An' Edmontcn despatch to The Herald today In a characteristic way, quietly and effectively, without blowing of trumpets, an important innovation has been made in the Government Telephone System. OD January 1st there came into effect a wide plan of readjustment in telephone rentals "and tolls. Hon. Mr. Gushing, Minister of Public Works, under whose capa- ble direction this important provincial enterprise is operated, said today in reply to enquiry-Jby a Herald rep- There is really little to say about the matter. For the past four months, we have been considering the question of readjustment, and I have gone carefully into the'matter. Tnis readjustment, which went into effect January will mean a reduction in Tates orr exchange? formerly operated -by the- Seii Telephone, with the exception of exchanges with over .subscribers, where the same rates will be-main-- tamed on business telephones.
