I The Herald Is informed that as soon 'as the Carmangtey branch of the C. P i R. is completed to Aldersyde that at , least ten train crews that were moved i trom this city to Macleod will be mov-jed back again. This will be due to I the fact that a very large part of the traffic now going over the C. and E between MMleod and Calgary will go jovcr the new line. 1 Among other changes anticipated in the railway arrangements here is one by which a divisional superintendent will be located at this city. He will have in his division the Crow line east and west of the city and the Carman gay line, and after the New Year when the C. P. R. takes over the A. R. and i. lines, these" lines will be under the same superintendent. It is stated that the superintendent will be locat- 'ed here In June.

Reported That Maryfield-Lethbridge Branch Will be Rushed to Completion Route of North Line to be Changed to go Across Belly River Near Taber (Special to the Herald) Winnipeg, March 24.-Your corre spondent has been unable to get any official Information from the author! ties of the Cantadian Northern Railway as to their intentions regarding building into Lethbridge. However, it is well known here mat the company intends to get into that city as soon as it possibly can. . It Is generally believed in railway circles here that the C. N. R. will rush its Maryfield branch I to Lethbridge and proceed through! i some pass in the Southern part of Al ' ' bertti Into the Flathead valley in Brit-| ' ish Columbia, where it has extensive ;ooal holdings. The line will go direct, 'to this pass, crossing the Alberta^ i Railway and Irrigation Co. line south least of Lethbridge, and will run a line I into Lethbridge from the south-east. I While the company Intends building ;from the north without delay, it is ! practically certain that it will re:ch ; Lethbridge from the south or south-i east first, it will be the first line tc, reach the Waterton Lake country. The line from the north will not come direct from Calgary but from a point on the line from Vegrcville and Calgary on the Goose Lake branch. It will in all probability cross the Belly River about Woodpecker and will come into Lethbridge from the north east. While these reports cannot be confirmed at the C. N. R. offices at Winnipeg there is no doubt in well in formed railway circles that these are the plans of the company.
