Knine provincial minister of public works, who returned today from the good roads congress at Richmond, Va., and announced that thc international high- way from Miami .Florida to Montreal, the Canadian cud of which is termed thc King Edward highway, would be extended to Quebec and later to HI- monski with a possibility of Itn con- tinuation further down through the province. in the strike district will Have its full quota of men ab work, ,A large I number of thc men who. were .out on strike had taken jobs, in thc woods for the vrinter, but since thc opening of the mines (hey have dropped their cant-hooks and come hack to tliclr old places to lake up 'in. the pits once more. As a result the lum- ber ir.g interests suffering from a shortage of men for the present at least. The local mines have had two shifts working for the past two or three drays, but it some time before they an; raising as much coal as was thc case before Ihe strike. How- ever, each shift is working in a dif- ferent part of the mine, and develop- ment work will soon have reached such a stape that the will once more reach normal. It is belief of the operators SHRINERS TO DANCE Calgary, Nov. Board ol Trade will a great extent responsible for .the introduction ol two very important bills at tho coming session Al- bert legislature, a Bulk Sales', and an act regarding compulsory hail insurance. The former u now under consideration by the whole- sale section of the Board of Trtito; and a petition is being circulated among the' wholesalers asking that a bill similar to that in force in Mani- toba, Saskatchewan and British' Col- umbia be passed preventing; the sale in bulk of retail merchants' stocks sales companies who sell it off'and either abscond with or pay Uie wholesalers only a small per- centage of the amount owed by the retailer. The matter is being taken up by the boards at Edmonton and Calgary, and there is little doubt that their efforts will be successful. The other matter is thy question of iail insurance which tins been under the notice of thc board here for some time. A letter was read at last night's meeting of the council from P. AUJ.P. for Stettier, stat- ing that such a bill could not be m- troditced bv a private member, but government He slated, however, thai he would like the. views of the people of. Southern Alberta in order that the statute might be such, when passed', as would be acceptable to all parts "of the province. As the Asso- ciated Hoards of Trade are handling the matter, the letter was referred to them. There ia no doubt, bowevtr, that a bill will be brought in by the govern- ment regulating the matter of'hail insurance. Some time ago Hon. Dun- can Marshall stated to Secretary Manwaring that a bill i of construction, and would intro- duced by the government. The Asso- ciated Boards will do all in their power to have the hill framed W keeping with the views wktatt been'advanced through the Board from time to.time. A tetter oh subject was also read frqnT L. S. Rfpley and Co. who some time ago wrote one of the Minnesota hail in- surance companies regarding their method of carrying on hail Insurance, in which it was stated per quarter section was the maximum for which ihey would insure, as private company. Another matter of great in which has been under discussion by the wholesale section of the board seems to be nearly solved.
