BIG REDUCTION MADE IN TELEGRAPH RATES GREAT PROGRAM FOR THE CONGRESS CARDSTON CHOIR IS TO.RENDER SOME OF MUSIC Cardstou, July misunder- standing seems to have arisen as a of an item in the Raymond 'bud- get of ithe -Herald a few issues ago, which stated that Cardston, Magrath, Raymond and Stirling were to com- Dlne talent in a chonis for the Dry- Fanning Conogress.

R. and I. Co.'s lines, it enjoyed competitive tariffs in freight, ex-press and telegraph business. On April 1, the competition was taken away, and there was a general upward, trend in the tariffs ot the express and telegraph companies, and this fact has given the business' men of the city some anxiety, and caused the Board of Trade to emtor complaints against the action. The freight rates from U. S. noints, however, were not in- creased. Now conies .an anouncement of a general .reduction in telegraph tolls to United States points from the whole of Southern Alberta, which should bring smiles to the faces of those most interested in such a change On August'l, a new tariff of tele graph tolls will-go into effect, where- 'by a general reduction of tolls from Lethbridge to States points will become effective. This reduction as it affects Southern Alberta as a whole will .be from 20 to 35 per cent. The-reduction from United States points will not he 'quite so great as from other points in Southern Alberta, owing to the fact that a special competitive tariff has lieen In effect in the Lethbridge of- fice. However, the new tariff win give a etlll lower tariff from f he lo- cal office than the competitive tariff which has been effective. 13elow are some of the rates from Southern Alberta offices showing the reductions, which have he-en made FALLIERES' SECRETARY DEAD Fan Cant.il, France, July Rnmondon, -the oftlcial secretary to President Falileres at the Elysee..dled suddenly today in his country 'estate here.

JOHN KEMMIS IS LIKELY TO RETIRE Pincher tives May Run Herron for Legislature Pincher Creek, July Kern- mis, 51.P.P., was a visitor to town oc Saturday; in ,fact, the genial 'Muck1 frequently takes a run in just to see how things are progressing. But not a few people attach special signifi- cance'to his trip this time. It is stat- ed that practically every. Conservative any prominence in. the district has been In town-during tho, past, week or so, and that some very serious and solemn conclaves have .been held by -tli-5 faithfulfew. It is also said that these informal gatherings have really assumed the characteri of a conven- tion, and thai the Conservative frame- up for the next provincial election is now all cut and dried and ready to serve on the shortest "notice. And If there is anything in street rumors, it is certainly an enterprising, though not It is fre- quently suggested on the street that John Kemmis will not .accept a sec- ond nomination, hut that John Her ron will 'he the choice as candidate the provincial cam- paign, which the Conservatives choose to think will soon he launched. Whether -Mr. Herron could "come brick" is very problematical, lo put it mildly. His action in connection with the recent Dominion election would not he at all likely to Increase the confidence of the electors In Mr. worth as parliamentary repre- sentative. Tho name of A. C. Kemmis is also again mentioned frequently in connec- tion with the nomination, but the lo- cul Ivibernte declare he could not get himself elected, and would he more than delighted ,to see that gentleman get the nomination.
