The Edmonton telephone exchange yesterday suspended operations indefinitely. For several months it has been a losing financial proposition for the owners and was closed because a sufficient number of patrons refused to agree to the proposed increase in rates to make it self maintaining. The suspension of the service seriously, if not wholly, stops all communication with the outside world and isolates us, together with the impassable roads, from civilization and the spirit of progress. It means a demoralization of the business interests of Edmonton and a direct monetary loss to the merchants, doctors and bankers. – Edmonton News
