Oeclarlug that the' enforced use of Alberta sub-bituminous coal' for domestic ..purposes during ihe present season is converting muny people of Manitoba to the use of Alberta coal in preference to the hard coal usually imported froni the tipited States, Charles Murphy, new general manager of C. P. R. western lines, who is in the city today dn his initial visit In that capacity, told the Herald that in his opinion Alberta domestic coal would hereafter have at le'ajst an even break with' the Pennsylvania product in aianltoba and Saskatchewan. "I, myself, am converted to Alberta coal," he .^ald, "and I do not kno\\-that i iwould be anxious to chango back.' , Mr. Murphy voiced the opinion thai Alberta coal would grow stronrter ami stronger in favor in the eastern part of the prairie provinces, and he rather expects to see' the effect .ehowc in a practical way m the orders which will, come^ to .the coal mines of this district'during Uie' com year. ��['.^0 Conipany.'Affairs ; Mr.' Jiiurphy ' deolared '. that he hai' little he could say at tiie present time Wth respect to company, a'lfaits in Southern Alberta. "I am-iust out this time looking orer the country, getting a bird's-eye view of our lines, and meeting our company officials, .and I would not care to say anything on matters of policy." Asked wliether the compnu.y's 1919 construction program would result lu any bi-auch extensions in SouthOrn Alberta, tie new general mahag^er staled Uiat he could give liothing out; "You all know that extensions .ire under consideration. e.xtenslOns ard new branch lines have been,held up owing to the war,' and there Is Jio' doubt that the company will consider them in crriuection with their' annual program which will bo announced lii February. The company is as anxious , as anyoqe to do its share lit the per- ! iod of reconstruction." Railroading on the Canadian Pacific is almost back to normal utter the . influenaa epidemic, Mr. Murphy stat- jed. At one time the company was short 2200 men, but. passenger trains j were taken oft in order to- keep freight, and especially .coal, moving. Mr. Murphy does not look for, any serious coal shortage during the coming winter. The wet is pretty well stocked, and while there may be temporary shortages in some parts there wUi be.ii'o danger In a general M-ay. Mr.' Murphy was accompanied on his visit by 'Mr. McKenzie, chief engineer- of maintenance of way, and Mr.'.AJexander. district engineer, Cal-. gaT}\ Su'pt MacKInlosk accompanied him fr^m .Qrow.s' Nest. The party will leave for the east at y.{jOmmtssloner.:PYeein8ii,.3rho holds that^'e'agsessmenfoB. the'city is excessive. He declarea-thiat the assessment, which j'S'based on the payroll. Is practically as high as that aslfed, by; the iusurance companies doing a! similar Una of insurance. During the � pafet'two years the city has been Carrying its own insurance against accidents to- employees, and paying the regular- in.snrance rate the city has been able to save a fund'of over $5,000, out of wlilch not more than'loOO has been needed � to meet claims. �' Maydr Hardie 'is'^ inclined to' agi-ee that the rate is high, but-he points out .that a bjg-explosion in a coal mine, wiping" out lives as. did the Hlllcrest audj>: Bellevue explosions, Wo'iild probably, cost the , province ^200,000, witclL would require heavy assessments;. '-^--- . The city is quita prepared to comply with alltfie requirements of the act, but it is. possible that some' attempt may he'made to have the rates, as they apply to city employees, decreased. , Some Strenuous Opposition, but, Final Vote Gives Large Majority , ACTINIS GOVERNOR-GENERAL , . .L. --. . i i' � i... OTTAWA, Dec. 3.-Sir touis Davies, chief justice of Canada, has been appointed to act as deputy governor-general during the absence �from the city of the-Duke of Devon-shlra. � The Farmers' F'ire; arid^Hail ijnsur-ance Co. will move "its headquarters to Calgary. 'By a majority of something over ICOO shares,- the shareholders of the company.-.yesterday after-*] noon decided thai' tiie': proposal of the directors to remojre the headquarters to Calgar)' .waS'.-a right policy from the standpoinTrofthe-'suacess of the company linancially. The ^meeting: was hai-monious hut far from unanimous .at first. There was some strong-ibpposition to the move of the'�directors, but consider-^ able more harmony-"was displayed at' the meeting xthan^'^characterized the| meeting last'Tspring when the same topic �Va8;.'.imder discussion. Share-> holdersi.fromltoo Springs, New Dayton- aad.l.other' points offered strenu-1 ous -opposition until they saw that I their arguments would be defeated in the final vote, and they finally accepted the explanation of the directors. After the motion had been carried to move the officer, a motion was then offered to make it unanimous, but since many *of_ the shareholders had then left the hail, ,the motion was not put. ' Thus it is that tlie Farmers' Fire ' and Hail Insurance Co., orgailized as a ' Southern Alberta company, with head; quarters at Lethbrldge, Avill move on" the first of the year to-Calga>y. The statement of the directors at the meetr ing was that It was impossible to se; cnre the big business that-was avail-; able lu the north of the'province, without a more central locatioii., A. J. H. Donahoe, 'president) of the -company, presided at the meeting, which was held ii the K. of P." hall and largely attended. Rev. Mr. Burns, who has been acting minister of Knox church during the absence ofCapt, A. H. Denoon, expects to leave' shortly, as Capt. Do-noon Is expected home this week to resume his duties. Rev. Mr. Burns has not settled .his plans, but expects to go eaist for some time on personal business. ; .. . On Sundayevening Rev. C. . E. Cragg, of Wesley church, speaking at Knox, seized tlie opportunity to pay a tribute to thb sterling worth of Rev. Mr, Burns,-with whom he had been associated ii\ many ways for a year and a half.' Not only Knox church but ai;i Lethbrldge would be sorry to lose-Rev. Mr. Burns. Next Sunday will be, the last time that Mr. Burns will; appear at Knox. �Lethbrldge expects to welcome home this afternoon her first big batch of returning soldiers, since the armistice' was signed. /.The. train from the east this afternoon will bring home to joyous parents, apd;wives, and '\)rothers and. sisters,, a dfS}en or.more. Leth-. bridge' and district men who have been serving overseas, iome pf them since the hegirihi'ng of the war. The Hejjald has not yet been able to.ascertain the full list of those that will return' today, as it is not known just who are in the party, although several loc'al families have been notified by wire that their boys are returning. The party travelled as far as Medicine Hat on a special troop train, together with a big batch of other Western men, most of whom "are being demobilized at Medicine, Hat and Calgary, being southern Alberta men. Acting Postmaster Sargeant was the first man to buy a war savings stamp Monday morning, when the stamps went on sale for the first time. Hei registered his certificate^ as member orie:'^ It Is possible to purchase these stamps either in coupon form or have them registered which can only he done at the local post oftiqc. ^The acting postmaster says that tliere^is already a good demand-for these stamps, and, that^hey shquid prove very popular in Lethbrldge. Thrift books are also a popular form. These books contain 16 2oo stamps and when-filled will be exchanged for one war savings stamp bearing iuter-est. It is possible-that^Avhen the schools reopen a definite thrift campaign Avill be opened among the school pupils, with the thrift books, '.'during the day we sold about .$20 worth of stamps," said tlie acting postmaster to The Herald this morning. "For a while we expect tliat much of the demand will bo for information rather than the stamps, but eventually we expect to do a thriving business."  One little incident at the postoJfice yesterday serves to "show^ how tine thrift stamp campaign is taking hold. A ''little boy who could hardly look over the top of a desk walked. into' the postmaster's private office and placed his money on the desk. He had just cashed the coupon of his" Victory bond. He wanted to invest;' in thrift stflmps so, that his-Victory-Loan intQrestV-ag >^ell]h3-the- principal wotfjd bei earning, motiey* Though his mothei* was With him,'he conducted the business oi! purchasing $2 wortli of. thrift, stamps Jike ,a regular business man and, walked' out of the ^office as'pleased tin Puribli.'^'' ' > Chlldrea ahd theirilaVentis Svere the prinolpal; purohnse^fe '''of f^stamps 'on tlio opening dky.- Thrift'ttfaraps �^'ere In the majority knions' Hie purchases,: but *t)io wkri !^a!vln'gs stamps win come later when'the liUnil^hsers 6f thrift stamps have collocted'bnough to trade for a war savihgs'/stU'Aip. , DENMARK ,DiE;^flE$'IT  iAVASHINGTON, '4io"o. ,3!;*-9ehmarU has made no arrangements :to furtilsli Urge .monthly shlpthentR - of' food to Germany, as repqrted recently, by the fierlln correspondent of' the:'Berling-ske.
