PE^?TICTOi\—Tentative  plans   prepared   by Architect Swan   for a new
maternity hospital were considered by
the hospital'board last night. -.
"  On    account    of   the   overcrowded^
condition of the institution it is real-'
ized that further accommodation must
be provided and the  board proposes
therefore  to wait on  the  council  in
order to discuss ways and means for
raising the necessary funds.
The estimated cost of a new mater-'
nity building of hollow tile construction similar in size and appearance to
the present hospital, and extended at
an obtuse angle from the northeast
corner of the existing building is
$35,000. It would contain ten private
wards and the other necessary offices
nnd; service rooms. There would be
an unfinished basement.
This building would be in conformity with any other structure extended
in future from the southeast corner
of the present hospital, the three
making up three sides of a hexagon.
VICTORIA—Architects Maclure &
Lort, Union Bank building, are preparing plans for several 'fine "homes
for Victoria and vicinity "which will"
comprise all. the latest designs ,and
equipment for cosy, .dwellings... Further details of these projects will be
published in The Record as soon as
the plans are ready for tenders.

The    formation    of    a    "Plumbing
Club" by the Co-operative Apartment
House Association of Los Angeles for
the payment of a flat rate for the care
and inspection of all plumbing, proved
such  a    successful    experiment   last
spring that  the  membership  has  increased in two months from 25 to 100.
The original rate of payment, $5 per
yeanifor each apartment, has also been
lowered to 14 per year for eaeh apartment.    The  idea  is one  that  might
well be adopted here by some enterprising firm of plumbers as a lucrative side line that would not materially interfere with their main  business.
By the terms of the contract with
a local plumbing company, the latter agrees to inspect all plumbing in
each house four times a year. The
plumber is subject to call at any time,
night or day, for emergency calls,
and maintains a sufficient force to
enable him to answer'all calls 'within a "maximum of thirty minutes. The
flat rate includes the replacement and
furnishing of faucets, hall cocks,
washers, flush valves, traps on sinks
and basins, etc., but does not include
the furnishing of plumbing fixtures,
such as closet bowls, bath tubs and
basins. It does include repairs to all
steam, gas and water pipes in the
bouse. i .it'''
Investigation has shown thai there
is a considerable saving In this plan,
as it is figured that the average apartment is now spending about $200 a
year on plumbing bills. As the Cooperative Apartment rfbuse Association includes about 640 houses, under
the. old plan the association would
spend $128,000 annually. Under the
new 'plan, the cost per apartment
house will average $125 per year, or
a total of $81,000 for the 640 houses,
showing a saving of $47,000 annually,
if all the houses in the association
become members of the club.

Few residences, of its size, even in
the ultra-fashionable Shaughnessy
Heights section, will surpass in real
artistic merit and beauty of exterior
design as well as convenience of interior arrangement, this handsome
home which has just been completed
for Mr. Charles G. Dixon, proprietor
of Leonard's Cafe.
This cosy home was erected by Contractors Dixon & Murray, at a cost of
about $16,000, from plans prepared by
Architects Townley & Matheson
When the photo was taken the duelling was not entirely complete, as the
shutters had not been hung on the
windows of the second story and
there were a number of other minor
details also incomplete. When flowers have been planted in the neat
window boxes and rambler roses and
other vines have entwined the,trellises, providing a striking contrast
against the white btucco finish, Mr.
Dixon will have one ot the prettiest
homes in the whole district.

Were it not for the word "Cattle"
over the main entrance this new building at Hastings Park might well be
taken for a new palace of fine arts or
industry. But the directorate of the
Vancouver Exhibition Association are
already assured of having some of the
most aristocratic, and blue-blooded
stock on exhibition at Vancouver's big
fair this year, and thoy were determined to have a fitting setting for the
display 6f such fine stock.
Accordingly the Exhibition directorate appointed, architects par diner
& Mercer, 827 JBirk's building to'design this model Livestock building,
which is 102 by 270 feet in dimensions
and cost approximately $20,000. This
front view shows the main entrance,
but it does not fully convey the large
area of the building. Besides the
model arrangement of stalls on the
ground floor for the stocic, there are
offices and sleeping quarters upstairs
for     the stockman,    bonidon  a    club
room and shower baths.
The construction is of frame and
heavy timber, the contract for its
erection being awarded to Mr. H. P.
Leek, while the contract for the 35,500
square feet of "Pacific" roofing used
on this large structure was carried
out by Messrs Campbell & Orijl, Roofing Contractors. The new building
will' form a very noticeable and welcome addition to the big exhibition

PLAYHOUSE well  worthy of the title of  "Palace •■ .of Amusement"  threw wido lis ■ doors to  the amusement loving  public of Vancouver on  Monday and a really notable addition to an already imposing  chain of Canadian theatres was formally  opened by Mayor Gale with all the eclat  that uuch  palatial premises  merited.  The new Alien Theatre at the corner  of Georgia and Seymour streets in  heralded as the finest motion picture  theatre in the west as well as the city's  largest playhouse in point of seating  capacity. ..-,-.-  lt ,1s indeed fitting that Vancouver,  admittedly "ihvpaest show city in the  whole western^'*half' of the continent,"  ih experienced^theatrical men are fond  of quoting it,-whoufdr henceforth be in  a position ' to' po"*nt with pride to the  finest "motion picture playhouse in Canada. This new temple of the silent art.  forming the latest^' biggest and best of  a chain of 5S splendidly fitted, equipped  and furnished theatres owned by the  Allen Brothers of Toronto, who are operating theatres in twenty-one Canadian  cities, represents an expenditure in this  city of over. $400,000 before the first  ticket  was sold  on  Monday.  It has been customary to speak of  now theatres as "representing the last  word" tn playhouse construction. Fully  complying with and even exceeding in  many respects the Btringent building  regulations which cover theatre construction in this city, tho new Allen  playhouse represents the last articulate  syllable  of   the   final -word   In   all   that  goes   to   combine   up-to-the-minute   construction, safety,  convenience and  comfort   in   connection   with   this   increasingly   popular  form  of  amusement.     If  there  is   anything more "up   to  date  or  acutely metropolitan in .the way; of theatre construction and  equipment, Canada  has   not   got   it   yet—but  will  have   its  etjual soon for six'or more virtual duplicates of this new theatre are now under  construction  In  various Canadian  cities  Cor  the same  owners and" management.  Designed by Mr. C. H.

Vancouver screen fans can  still  remember  the decided   thrill  which  went  through  the community when  the  first  announcement   was  made  that   the'  Allen   interests   had   purchased   the   old  .Waverley   hotel  corner and   intended   to  demolish   that   venerable  structure   and  erect upon the site a theatre, that would  set a  new standard for a picture playhouse throughout ail of this broad Dominion.    Those  promises,   roseate   though  they may have seemed at the time, have  been   fully   lived   up   to.     And   what   is  more, the new theatre has been erected  without  any  of   those  vexatious  delays  so   frequent   in   large  building  projects,  and  the whole  construction carried  out  in  a  manner  that   reflects  the  greatest  credit  on   Mr.  Alexander McDonald,   the  general contractor, and the various subcontractors and skilled tradesmen whose  combined   skill .was   needed   to* produce  this handsome  thesplan temple.   >•  CLAYBURN  FACING  BRICK  Supplied By  Evans, Coleman & Evans, Ltd.  AGENTS  The construction throughout_ia of reinforced  concrete,  steel,  brick and  tile,  with art stone trimmings manufactured  by the Dawson Art Stone works—a combination of fireproof materials tha,t may  be said to be as enduring as the everlasting  hills.     Outside  of  the   massive  steel frame which includes some of the  largest and  heaviest  fabricated  girders  that have been put into any building in  the city," all of which are covered with  an ample thickness of concrete, ■ the exterior   is   finished   with   Clayburn   face  brick,   supplied   by   Evans,    Coleman   &  Evans.    A considerable quantity of common - brick   was   also   used   for   interior  partitions,   and   supplied  by   the   Gabri-  o!a  Shale   Products  Company,*  through  Messrs. Champion & White. That would  make a sufficiently substantial  and  impervious  building to suit most   building!  experts. But not so with Allen Eros., or  their    enterprising    and    conscientious  general contractor. Mr. McDonald.    The  whole exterior of the building has been  waterproofed   and   made  absolute!}-  impervious against all  atmospheric action  by* a   carefully   applied   coating  of   the.  B.   C.

In   a  damp   climate   such   as   this,   such  care in the initial stage of a building's  life  will,  according to eminent  building  experts, result  in keeping its fresh  appearance almost  indefinitely.

The auditorium of any theatre is generally' the   most  attractHe  part   of   the  playhouse,  as  far as,finish  and  decorations are concerned! - And there has certainly been  no attempt  to make an  exception   to   this  rule  in   the  case  of  the  ! new Allen theatre.-   There are "four large  aisles  leading into   this  big  auditorium, i  which   despite   its   seating   capacity    of  1-iOO.    looks    so    perfectly    proportioned  that  its real- size is at first hardly  apparent.    Most striking feature.to  catch  the   eye   upon   entering  are    five    large  mirrors on  each* side of the auditorium  which   were   supplied   and   installed   by  Wm. X. O'Neil Co. Ltd.    The four aisles  chilis' room conveniently located to -the  orchestra stand. Over on the right are  quarters for the janitor where supplies  can be kept.  Instead   of   the    usual    Mgh-pVrcJied  DECLARES DECORATIONS ARE  UNSURPASSED   ANYWHERE.  .\nd just  while on  the subject  of decorations and fittings, list for a momont  to   the   o\-peit   opinion   of  a   recognized  authority on that subject.    Mr. Thos. L.  Musgrave,    decorative    expert    for    the  Hudson's   Bay  Company,  which  supplied  all the decorations and furniture for the  new playhouse, declares that there is no  theatre  on   the  continent  that   will   surpass   the   .-\llen   in   the   matter   of   real  artistic  merit and excellence  of decorations and  fittings.    Mr. Musgrave ought,  to know, for he took a trip east to New  Voile,   Chicago,   and  a   number   of  other  hi:r American and Canadian cities to inspect   the  best   thoy   had.   and   with   in-  strucxions   to   design   and   order   something   better  for  the   local  house.     And  he feels quite confident he has'done so.  The lamp standards  and lamp shades  are all  finished   in gold and  polychrome  to harmonize  with  the prevailing  tones  of tho decorations,    The Allen  will also  have    one    of    the    most    sumptuously  fitted-up ladles' rest rooms of any  theatre on the Pacific coast.    The rest room  is   done   In " black," gold   and    mulberry,  which   with   the  furniture   in   ivory  enamel,  makes  a  very-artistic and pleasing contrast   indeed.  In thorugh keeping as far as quality  is concerned, are the. costly carpets laid  in the new playhouse, the deep pile of  which gives one the right feeling and  atmosphere immediately upon entering.  The carpets laid on the main auditorium  aisles, mezzanine floor, boxes and loges  are all In a two-toned smoke-grey hi'-'h  grade of Wilton. The same make' of  carpet also in smoke grey is laid in'ihe  ladles rest room on the lower floor  while that in the rest room on the mezzanine floor is of Axmlnster, air oi  which .was supplied by the Hudson's  fiay   Company.  ; tically on  the same level,  is a comfortably equipped lounge to  which  is given  an   added   touch   of . hom'elik'eii'osB   by   a  fine   fireplace   In    the    centre.     At    the  eastern sitle of the Georgia street frontage on  this  floor are located  the ladies'  parlor   and    lavatory,   and   still    further  eastward,   tho   executive   offices    of    the  theatre.     These are  Indeed  -vsell   lighted  and   appointed   and   might   well   bo   the  envy  of  .any   businessman.     Theie   is   a  larso   private   office   for   Mr.    Willis,   1'.
