The Dominion Government of Canada has just anounced that it will give the Anglo-American Cable Company a $5000.00 subsidy for an improved cable connection between Prince Edward Island and the mainland. By agreement, the Company will reduce its rates on messages from points in Prince Edward Island to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, and Ontario. The effective new rates will move from 50 cents to 30 cents for 10 words, and from 3 cents to 2 cents for each additional word. A proportionate reduction is made for Press messages. Rates to Manitoba, British Columbia, the two Territories, and the United States, are reduced from 50 cents to 25 cents for 10 words, and from 3 cents to 2 cents for each additional word. The rates of all connecting lines will and must be added under the new agreement.
