Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 15, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TWELVE THE LKTHBRIDCife HRhALD1 \ \ FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1018 How Increase Will Affect Local Passenger Traffic When you travel on the V. T*. R. tines out of Lethbridge now it is Koine to cost you 15 per cent, more than it would hnve yesterday. The Canadian railways have added lii per lent To the cost of travelling. urid t!je new rates are in effect today. The local ticket office of the company received word about, ten o'clock this morning of the raise In passoiiRor rales, with instructions to add lf> per cent to the cost of each ticket. Though tlio new rates went Into effect at midnight the local office was not notified of the change i" time to soil fhe morning train tickets at the new rate*. Those buying tickets were therefore fifteen per cent, ahead ot the game. As hii example of what the new tales will mean in comparison with ihe old. we giye the comparative rates to a few points: New .......... 14.40 Calgary . (ardston crrutts � Medicine �Winnipeg Old. J3.S0 2.00 2.00 3.55 22.05 ... ."..... 2.35 Hat ....... 4.1f. ........... 25.85 hi the tniled States travellers are %ayiDg an increase o* eight per cent on all passenger tickets, but this is a war tax. and goes to the government to supplement, the general Teveuue. and not into the treasuries of the rail-way companies. Freight Rates Alto The freight rate increase so long threatened also wen: into effect today, and hereafter ail freights will be 15 per cent, higher. Local wholesalers have figured it out that this will mean an increase, of about half a cent on u can of tomatoes from Ontario. On a Studebaker nutomobile from Ontario the increase will be from $95, the old rale, to $110. the new rate, making then* autos $15 higher. Other Makes will be increased in proportion. The new rate also allows for a flat increase of if> cents on each ton o� coal shipped from any point to any other point. This will mean between $4.50 and $7.50 Increase on each car, be the haul long or short. Increase on Qr.ain e "grounds of the defendant's information- and belief that the proposed garnishee' was indebted to fee defendant. - The chief justice and Justices Stuart and Hyudman, held Jhat the affidavit did not contain what the rule says an affidavit should contain to warrant the issue c$f a garnishee summons and that no jurisdiction is conferred on the clerk who issues the summonses to exercise a discretion to overlook defects. Tho appeal was therefore allowed with costs and the garnishee proceedings set aside with costs.  C. J. Jamieson ot Lethbridge, for (�defendant) appellant; A. E. Dunlop for (plaintiff) respondent.
