However,, all inferences to; this elfect have been wrong. It see'ms impossible' that the company will have a line in Lethbridge before 1915." ";' ' '. Why  did the company abandon the' construction of the Calgary-Goutts branch That question is naturally asked..v . �'�, ., The reason, as ^iven-the Herald, is that the-extension of the Calgary branch-south would open no new ter-ritory.r;,as "it almost .parallels the CarmangajAbranch of^the C.P.R. The construction of the branch was op-' posed by. W-.. A. Buchanan, M.P., ber fore the'Board of Trade last summer on that ground, but' the Board of Trade neld''a' differenti'view; . However,- there- is -another reason. If the &.'P.p. were to construct the branch .fronii Calgary, they would be forced to ship via Edmonton in or-der.-to reach their maint lhie. The distance from Lethbndgetb the east via Edn?onton would he so much greater than over the: C.P.U.- lines that the G.T.P. would be unable to compete Mansions on 10th St., at the rear of the Victoria Mansions. The cost will be in the neighborhood of $60,000.
