He said that ANEW DIRECTORY WANTED Board of Trade Objects to Delay iii Issuing- Book NANY COMPLAINTS Automatic Phones Not Suitable to This Climate When in Lethbridge going to the new telephone directory promised repeatedly during Iho past two months? The matter was brought up at the Hoard of Trade last night, and a num- ler of tile members seemed to thltik the city is not receiving a fair shake. It is two months since thtetbook was promised "inside of a and over a month since the revised jroofs were read. AH one member put it, Ihe whole will have to be revised again shortly. While some of the criticism seemed :o have a suggestion of political ani- mus back of it, the general concen- sus of opinion was that the present service is inadequate and inefficient. The automatic 'phone, according to one nrember, is not suitable to this climate, being so easily affected by' dust and changes in temperature. Mr. Fowler raised the question, nnd after revtewlng the promises made, that "we'take the tele- phones' and '.the- whole- works and throw them Into the river and Mtab- lish a messenger service." Mr. JlcNichol wanted the Board to make a "demand" for the directory. Jlr. Poapst said that when "Inquiry" was wanted "she was apparently, out to and when "trouble" was want- ed he didn't know was. Chorus of voicei: "Oh, you'll let trouble enough." President Hatch: "Well, let us bave definite instances." Mr. Ives: "This week my phone has been but of commission three morn- is specific enough." Fowler expressed the view that the system is too delicate. A lit- tle dust causes a short .circuit. The coal shortage has also been to blame. The temperature at "central" must kept even. He thought the automatic system "never will be a success in tills country." On motion of Messrs. Cunningham and 'Fowler, the secretary was in- structed to telegraph the Deputy Minister of Public Works, asking {or a definite statement as to the date the new directory might 'be expected.
