It is stated that it is the intention ot the company to run the Cmitts train right through tu Macleod, while the Cardston train, instead of going through to Calgary as at pres- ent, will run to Medicine Hat. The Aldersydo train will then termi- nate here. These changes are not looked upon at ail favorably by local business men and nn agitation is on foot now to find out the exact situa- tion from the C.P.R. and endeavor to have the old schedules remain in ef- fect. The changes would mean the re moval ot a number of passenger train crews from this terminal and would It is thought, result in poorer-service for this city to nearby towns of which Lethbridge" is the natural centre.
