For full report see Page 3. _____ I C.P.R With the date approaching, for put- ting into effeot the new winter time- table on the C.P.Ii.. many rumors are to be heard, on .the streets regarding the probable action of the company. The most insistent, and probably the report with the best foundation, is that the company will make no change in the present schedule with the ex- ception of putting an extra train on the Foremost branch, and running the morning train from Calgary to Mac- leod through to Lethbridge, to reach here .about', fcne o'clock. The 1UO morning train from Macleod to Leth- bridge-will be discontinued. The re- port has It that' the new schedule will make.no change toward a daylight ser- vice oii the Crow.west of Lethbridge. Discussion of the reports by -busi- ness men-are- to be heard on every Thex "state, that a glance at the prove that the additional accommodation on the Crow is needed. Yesterday afternoon's trains carried more than 300-west and north. Many of them who .wanted to go west of Macleod would have 'o stop over In Macleod till seven o'clock this morn- ing to make .the proper connections. It was'the choice of breaking Uie Jour- ney at Macleod or getting up In the the night and taking the train here. Business houses with travellers on the road .are unanimous In declaring that the present service on the Crow militates against their business. They state also that travellers representing jobbers would prefer to pay the ex- penses .of. a man to- go from here to Calgary or Medicine Hat to look at their "samples rather than make the _trip :under the present train'sbhpduie.
