Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1916 THJ� LByiBRlDGE DALLY HEfLALD PAGE NINE COMPLETE FINDING OF CHIEF RAILWAY COMISSIONER ON CM The following la a complete copy of the judgment of the. chief railway eommlnsioner on the Alberta train ervloes of the C. P.R.: The files attucticd involve com-[pltflnts as to train service In tlie sce-'tlon betweon bethbridge and .Coutts, JAltu.i on-the Miioleod subdivision, bo-Itwecn Aldersyde and Miicleofl; the 'Cirow's Nosl Subdivision, between Macleod una Lethbrldeo; tbe Stirling subdivision; and' the Stiffleld, Irrlcana, �Unci Coronation Subdivisions. "The complaints o,r to the section {between Lethbrldge and Coutts have iibacri received -from the Lethbrldge' Board of Tj�ido and the Cardst'ori �Board of Traae..Complaints have bfteh received frpni va.rloiia individuals, atid.' connection with the tri-woekly �.service, this taking effect on September 1st. The Canadian Pacific had taken up the question of train service reduction on August 18th. Inspector Shlnnlek's finding, briefly, Is this: The crop failure is admitted: On the Cardston Subdivision an* vicinity they -will not harves* rnoro than 20 per cent of the last year's crop. On the MacLeod Subdivision, with some small/improvements fri'tho dotafls of mail and express ser- additlon recommends that there should be a mixed train service on alternate days. Lethbridgo-Cardston Subdivlsifflii: The same'remarks apply. Crow'B Nest Subdivision: Between Maolood and Loth bridge the Company has taken off the through Calgary train and added* a local train leaving Macleod at 7.50 a.m. instead Of 1.25 p.m. This arrangement enables people to leave Macleod in' the morning, transact their business in Lethbrldge, and get back to Macleod around six o'clock at night. There Is also a service available returning from Leth-hridgo to Macleod .by the Spokane train. As to the service between Calfary and Macleod, there is the diroct local service leaving Calgary at 7.25 p.m , arriving at 11.30; and there is also the Spokane service viaKipp, leaving Gal-fgary at 10.20 p.m. and arriving Macleod 5.20 a.m. In addition there is the servico leaving Calgary at 8.50 a.m., this movement being via Ktpp, The train arrives at Klpp at 1.57 p.m. and Vice'out of Calgary, both of which mattefS Have been taken up, the traf- there is a stop-over to 5.15 p.m. From flc ciin'reasonably be taken care o;'.

The Servico from Lethbrldge to ^Coutts is Important because of the connection at' that point, with the Great Northern, affording' service north and south. The Great Northern reduced its train service between Great Falls, Mont,, and Coutts to a an ' BRETON ARROW COLLAR CLOSK MEETING CUT UP FRONT SHOWING A BIT OP CRAVAT BAND CltaH, Pt�txid7 It Co., of Canada. Limited service for railway transportation facilities, and cannot reasonably do asked to do with less than a two-trip per week service. The people on the Irricana Subdivision made no complaint, but to be of any real and practical value to the community, ought to afford at least two trips per week. The necessary rearrangements have been gone into by Mr. Shinntck and by Mr. Spencer, and the rearrangements which they find Justified and which should be accepted may be set out summarily as follows: The changes arc due entirely to the existing unsatisfactory traffic situations in the sections in question. In some instances it is questionable whether they will do more than barely recoup the cost of the service performed, but they constitute the maximum of what the Board is justified in directing under existing conditions. With improved conditions there should, of course, be an improvement in servico. Lethbridge-Coutts Subdivision: T'--hitherto existing service has been daily passenger, with the exceptio: Sunday. This has been reduced b..- this has been gone into by the Board's Operating Department and the adjustments effected of revised service may be approved. As already pointed out, there are through services still existing between Calgary and Macleod. Stirling Subdivision: Here the service was reduced by the Company from a semi-weekly mixed to one train per week mixed. On investigation it appeal's that the service should be restored, so that there will be two mixed trains per week. The Company was willing to reinstate this until October. It appears to the Board that the service should be continued to the end of the year. Traffic justification fortj^hoing continued on the two-train a w%ek basis beyond that date is not apparent. On the Suffield and Irricana Subdivision the Company desired to make the same reduction as on the Stirling Subdivision. An Order similar to that dealing with the Stirling Subdivision should be made. On the Coronation Subdivision, the Company operated its Lacombe St|b division trains Nos. 529 and 5^0 (passenger) through to Kerrobert, a point some 110 miles east of Coronation This train service has bsen withdrawn and in place there was given a daily, except Sunday, mixed train service, in connection with which it wttg proposed only to give a tri-weekiy express service.. On the matter being taken up with the Company an undertaking was given to provide an express service dally, except Sunday, on the mixed trains now in operation, The Board's Operating Department is " the opinion that the mixed train "vice as proposed and now in opera-an is, under existing traffic condit-.ons, all the Board can reasonably ask tho Cr  iahy to give under present 9 tho Company to a tri-weekly passen ger servico.

The Freight Handlers' strike caused a lot of discussion, and several of the delegates voiced the opinion that the council should rocetve a deputation from the freight men and have their opinion. It was eventually decided to call a mass meeting on Friday of this week, and invite the. fieight men around, also all union men who ore interested, particularly railway men. That (lie Retail Clerks arc not In any way satisfied with their working hours was the opinion of the delegates from this organization, and they asked for the co-operation of the Tiades Council to try and get better working hours. It also transpired that this new organization of Retail Clerks are getting strong in membership, and 110 doubt tlio elimination of the Wednesday half holiday is a sore point with thorn. However, the Trades Council promised their support, nnd a delegation of three was appointed to act in conjunction with the Retail Clerks to meet the merchants. A motion was also passed protesting against the retail merchants of lliis city taking away the Wodnosday "half-holiday.
