Al the Board of Trade meeting last night, at which there was a good represenlaliqiu there were strong protests against the pres- ent service, but these two particular services were singled out from other protests entered, and it was decided to make strong representation to the company to have the service remedied. It was pointed oul that the present service on the Crow line west of Lethbridge is the poorest Lethbridge i has had for ten years, and in view of the amount of traffic on the line, the board thought it tiuite right to ask resumption of tlie through day trains between Medicine Hat and Cranbrook, and Cranbrook and Mecli- Hat.
