FINE OPPORTUNITY FOR CLAY  PRODUCTS  "What a golden opportunity the  present time offers the clay products  manufacturers," is a comment frequently heard among local architects  and builders apropos of the high cost  .of building material. What a chance  to demonstrate by actual example  that brick and hollow tile for ordinary  house construction may be used at almost the same cost as frame, or frame  and plaster.  The clay products men have long  asserted this to be a fact—and have  made it a text of convinving advertising sermons—but in British Columbia and other sections of the Pacific Coast where climatic advantage is  on the side of frame construction. for  homes, they have faced, considerable  difficulty in getting their message over  to any large extent. Moreover, their  efforts to popularize brick and hollow  tile have been considerably handicapped by the attitude of the average  building contractor, who has formed  the    habit of    thinking, in  DEFER   SUBMISSION  OF BATH HOUSE BYLAW  The board of park commissioners at  its meeting on Wednesday, decided to  defer, the submission of the proposed  $200,000 bylaw for the erection of. a  natatorium or.artificially heated swimming pool at English Bay .until some  time next spring. This action was  taken for two reasons. One is to allow of more time In the compilation  of statistics of cost of operation ot  such establishments and the preparation of the plans. The other was owing to the fact that several other  money bylaws are to be submitted to  the ratepayers at the coming • civic  elections and the park commissioners did not wish to risk an unfavorable reception by the ratepayers of  this measure for the much desired  civic institution. The school board  will be submitting some bylaws to the  ratepayers for school additions and  improvements to the ratepayers next  March and it is probable that the  Natatorium bylaw, will be submitted  by the park board at that time..  fob    '  Busy Business Men  solid,   substantial   food   served' in  an appetizing flavor.

STEEL PRICES TO GO UP  SAY   MANUFACTURERS  An official of a leading independent  steel company maintains that steel  prices must advance owing to the fact  that they are now relatively low and  to the probability of further increases  in production costs.  When the coal trouble is finally adjusted, coal prices probably will be  higher and rail rates in all probability  will be advanced, he points out. With  these two important cost items advanced it is inevitable that steel prices  must do likewise, especially as they  have been maintained around present  The Chataway mine, Highland Valley, is jto be developed on a considerable scale. Title to the property has  been secured and funds are available  for an extensive development of the  group. The mine and mill of the property operated during 1917, producing  over $100,000 net smelter returns.  The Silver Glance mine' at Sandon,  w' ich is credited- with a yield of high  grade silver lead ore, has been acquired under a. bond and lease by  George Huston of Mullan, Idaho, and  George T. Thayer of Walla Walla, according to report. The Silver Glance  vein is about 25 feet wide, courses  north and south and dips 60 degrees  to the east. It is a fissure in granite.  Heavy gouge seams lie against the  foot and hanging walls. - The ground  between is crushed granite, cemented  with quartz, which carries the values.  Compressed' air will be used in speeding the development.

"There  is  ah  actual   steel  shortage  and this must have its effect on mark  terms of!et P"ces even more than it thus far  frame as against "other types of construction, and, as material men know,  habit is no small factor in determining the choice of materials.  There is today however, a growing  interest in brick and hollow tile for  ordinary heme construction. Proof of  this is found in the fact that the output of clay products from British Columbia kilns in the two years Immediately preceding the outbreak of  the war reached unprecedented proportions. Since hostilities ceased in  Europe and building activity has increased, there has been a very promising corresponding increase in the  demand for the output, of the various  B. C. kilns. While a large percentage  of this output is being used for commercial and public structures and larger residences, an increasing quantity  is going in£o homes of moderate cost.  It is interesting to note too, that such  structures are both substantial and  architecturally beautiful. They also  possess the additional virtue of being  as nearly fireproof as it is possible  to make a-dwelling.  The reason for the  public's chang-j  ing viewpoint with regard to the neces-j  sity for a switch from frame to some  other form of construction is not very j  difficult to fathom.    It is due almost;  solely to an understanding—based oni  what lumber and material men them-j  selves have been most sedulous in circulating—that wood as a building ma  terial  must  soon  be regarded  as  belonging  to   the   category  of   precious  stones and sugar.  has," - declares the manufacturer.

Coolings,  formerly of New York, but
later of Los Angeles, the real native
heath of the genus  bungalow,  is the
architect  who is now engaged in  designing homes to order for the Fauld's
firm.    And   he  is  being  kept  pretty
busy at that.    Last week he designed
four   special   bungalows   for   purcnas-
ers of Shaughnessy Park lots, which
are to be^erected just as soon as the
contracts"' are   awarded.     With   the
firm  se'ifng homes right off Mr. Coi-
iinge's plans, and he to supervise the
construction, it looks like a cinch that
he will be pretty busy for some time
to come. •■ '9
Mr. Collinge will design homes exclusively for Fauld's Bureau and expects to have half a dozen cosy homes
from his plans under construction in
Shaughnessy Park before the end. of
the year.
