Last year It, was announced by both the U. .V. ill and the C. T. P. that they would com monoo grading this year and trains would be in operation to this poin early In 1913.

J. B. Willtie imparted the Information last night at the regular monthly meeting of the hoard. He stated that he had learned it on his recent trip to the cast, and he be- lieved -it to he authentic. H is certain that these two com- panies have not carried out their con- struction promises with regard to Lethbrldgo for Praciically no 'work has been undertaken by (hem in the southern part of the province. While the people of Lethbridge are cognizant of many favors which they can tey at the doors of the C. P. R. they feel that with railway corn-peti- tion Lethbridgo would get a better service, both passenger and freight. Tho question was opened last night by a.discussion of Iho possibilities of getting the Western L'uion to get a line into Lothbridge from the south lo give competition once more in telegraph rates. U.

The board has been working on a proposition to supply thai link by in- ducing tha provincial telephone system to allow the West- ern Union to use their Leihbrldge- Coutcs line as as it is completed. H Is doubtful, however. If this will culminate in anyihing laugibl-e. P. W. Downer suggested another solution. Chicago, Sept.

P will certainly affiliate very closely with iho Great Northern at Coutts as soon as the line is built. There is large volume of traffic over tile lltii ;it present, and H would appear tha. -hoth companies would be willing to give the suggestion careful considcra tion if it were presented to them. There ;would be a large volume of (raffle which the G. T.

The outcome of the whole discus- sion was that the matter was left in the hands of the Board of Trade ex- ecutive lo plan out some effective campaign .to get action loading to a second road into the city in the short- est possible lime. If nothing else will succeed the Board is willing that a delegation bo sent to Winnipeg to nterview both the C. N. R. and the T.

R. should be approached 'with the idea of getting the schedule on the new Aklersyde service amended so that It would be more favorable to Lethbridge: The matter has been discussed previously by the board executive, and will be taken up with the travelling passenesr agent on his visit here this week." It pointed out, however, that there 'being any change at the present, time. It is understood that -the company is contemplating the proposition of "run- ning a through train from Coutts to Calgary commencing probably with the October time table, and at that time the schedule may be amended to be more favorable to this city.
