The   British   Columbia   Record   Is   the  official arsan of The Architectural Institute of British Columbia,  federated- with  The    Royal    Architectural    Institute    of  Canada,'and   The.  Kngineerinff  &.^Technical Institute, of British Columbia,  and  as such ia used by them as the m'edium  through which to make their official announcements  to   the  general  public.  ,   By such  selection  the British  Columbia   Record   is   no   wise   pledged   to   editorial   support   of   any   policy' advanced  by these societies, but maintains an absolutely   independent   position  on   all   mat-1  tens subject to editorial opinion.  IS  ".'.   TRAINED TECHNICAL MAN  NEEDED FOR POST  Trite and timely indeed is the action  taken by the British Columbia1 Technical Union;in forwarding a protest to  Premier   Oliver   urging   that   the   ap-  .pointee  for Public   Utilities   Commissioner be a    man    possessed of    the  necessary  technical   training  and   experience  to  cope  with  the  extensive  variety  of  matters   which   will   come  under his purview.    In-fact',' it is  regrettable in view of the palable. effort  to make this office  a political1; .plum,  that such  action on  the  part of  the  B. C. Technical Union was not taken  sooner.     Had   the   protest  been   sent  in about the time the provincial house  opened and the action followed by a  campaign; of publicity  and  education  directed    towards    pointing out    the  Adkison & Dill  GENERAL CONTRACTORS  Specialists In Reinforced  Concrete  325 litre St.  Sey. 3768- BV.B2II  hundred and one reasons why a technically trained man should be appointed,   there  would  probably liave   been  fewer   politically  prominent possibilities mentioned for the post.   As it is,  it may nh be  too   late  at that,   for  while it was almost an open secret a  few weeks ago that a certain prominent city official was likely to be named  for the job, it is now understood "that,  the members of the provincial executive have had a considerable change  of heart as a result of the pertinent  facts that have been called to their attention by the 13. C: Technical Union  and other bodies interested In seeing  real merit and    qualification • rather  than    political    pull  and    favoritism,  taken into prime consideration in making the appointment.  As pointed put by the B. C. Technical Union, it is more than ever necessary,   since   the   Public   Utilities   Act  only provides   for one  commissioner,  to have the position  filled by a man  who has been trained in a broad way  to  deal  with  technical  matters.    For  in  carrying out his   duties,  the  commissioner will''be confronted at every  angle by experts who will try to convince  him   of their  way of  thinking,  and unless the man appointed has the  necessary technical qualifications, the  administration of this important new  office will be farcial, and the public  would    naturally soon    begin to feel  doubtful   about   their   interests   being  safeguarded.  COMPANY OPENS CITY OFFICE  Mr. P. A. Jones, manager of the  Fraser River Pile Driving Company,  has opened a branch office of that organization in the city in order to better cope with the increased business  offering. The new office is in the  Metropolitan building, S37 Hastings  street, west, where orders will be taken  for all'kinds-of wharf repairing, bridge  building and general pile driving. The  company has several large orders in  hand and is going out after-more.'  POINT GREY PERMITS  2137—James Eadington .garage, 14th  Ave. W., $100. , •  213S—Mrs. A. B. Marten, dwelling,  Granville.
