Montreal A.A.A., with whom the final decision practically hinged, voted to continue. Ottawa made a similar decision, while Ham- ilton Tigers and the Ar-suuiiiiLs uF Tu- ronto have moved in the same direc- tion.

Fol the 7 days in November his bill wi j gas For the remaining: three weeks pi November he needed onlv worth oi coal. The Lethbridgc Laundry is another concern which has used both, and are now using coal in preference to gas. The manager, Mr. Farrow, shows fig- ures to prove that in proportion to the amount oi work done through his plant, the cost ni coal nas been la or 20 per cent. less than that ot gas. Tit- Sherlock block is at present heated with gas. The cost is estimat- ed to be 25 per'cent, greater than was the. cost of coal when that was usert, and the gas hills would be larg- er were it not for a special appliance in the iurnacss which cuts the cost one-third. 'The block, however, is saving the labor of one man at least in the 'use of gas over coal. Four of the largest blocks in the city controlled by the same group of -are using coal, and would not use gas, under the. present rates. Claims Gas a Saving But here is a story with the op- j posite tone. Joe Lee, manager of the. Alexandra hotel, declares that tho j use oi natural gas for.all Purposes in j the big hotel has saved him money over the use of coal.- His coal bills were generally around a month, during the winter. His gas .bills have .never been higher than a, month in the cold weather. His summer gas i bills are about a month. His j summer coal bills used to he 5150. i He believes the question of gas bills, is ali a matter of regulation of the: furnaces.
