CITY MARKET BUILDING  FAIRMONT 2794  EVERYTHING FAVORS PRESENT  AS GOOD TIME FOR HOME  BUILDING    '  '■ Reduced prices for lumber and the  falling market generally in many lines  of standard building materials calls  attention more pointedly than ever to  the fact that everything favors the  .present as a good time for renewed  activity to be shown in home building  on an .increased scale. That the demand for all kinds of dwellings exists  —particularly those' which can be purchased or rented for a moderate price  —cannot be doubted for a moment,  and everything also indicates that the  demand cannot be caught up with, as  far as Vancouver is'concerned, for  several years anyway. Nor is Vancouver alone in the province. But  from practically every city and town  in the province comes the same cry of  lack of accommodation, so there is no  chance of temporary relief through  moving w  Events of the last-two years have  proved that the-man .who built in the  early-days of the armistfce'fwas the  shrewder and more business-like. .He  has 'ad the use of his-buildings and  has. seen the price of materials and  the cost of labor rise with almost  automatic regularity, and the climax  to his.secret satisfaction-may not have  yet been; reached. The newspapers  are full just now of belated schemes to  help the houseless to house themselves. The .banks, the1 government an,d  municipalities are to be called into  conference in some places in an effort to. solve the situation, and many  newspapers are not slow to point out  that the present slackness in the lumber trade presents at least a temporary opportunity of obtaining one important building necessity at what  may prove a considerable bargain yet,  especially in the matter of average  home construction. The building.season is very much on the wane but the  new building season will soon be here  with its customery rush to secure  material,    and the    advice to    "build  now" still holds good.  Significant developments .are seen  in the national building industry by  the heads of several leading building  report and statistical concerns. In a  canvass of leading manufacturers of  all the basis building materials entering into construction of homes, it has  been found that buyers who have only  recently been prone to cancel orders  are now either accepting delivery or  are merely requesting that ^hipments  be held until after the first of the ye#r.  More new construction work has'.already been planned or authorized for  the first six months of 1921 than .was  ■commenced during the same period  of 1920. It is the feeling of Pacific  Coast jobbers that the economic revival ov.er the country will have its  inception -in building committments,  and that buying ' will start almost  simultaneously. ,  STORAGE WAREHOUSE AT  PORT HAMMOND PLANNED  (Continued from Page 1)  short of such products and the prices  are higher. The provisional directors  of the company are Messrs. Wellwood,  Dale, Alcorn and Ansell. It is expected that the organization will-be  completed soon arid . plans and estimates of the new,warehouse and its  equipment  secured.  POINT  GREY  MAINTAINS  ACTIVITY IN BUIlLDING  POINT GREY—(Special)—The returns of the municipal building' department for the second week of December shows that Point Grey is fully maintaining the decided activity in  building which has prevailed for several months past. The total value of  the nine permits issued during the  week is $17,400, which compares favorably with even that of Vancouver.  Included in the total were two new-  residences at $5,000 each. .

The council also decided to accept  the offer 'of -100 feet of 16-inch bell-  and-spigot joint steel pipe from the  city of New Westminster, at $3.00 per  foot. This amount with the pipe to be  supplied by the Vulcan Iron Works  contract will give the city 3,050 feet  of 16-inch mains for waterworks extensions which are planned for the  coining year. The total . cost of the  two orders of pipe will be $14,S47.50.  A wide' disparity was shown in the  figures submitted by the seven other  firms who tendered on the supply of  the 16-inch steel pipe in addition to  the Vulcan Iron Works bid of $5.15  per foot.

In an announcement which Mr. •McLean made on behalf of the party at  a luncheon tendered in their honor in  Prince George by the Board of Trade  of' the northern city-, he stated that  provided satisfactory arrangements  could be made with the government  in regard to the acquiring .of ,suitable  power sites and extensive timber leases so as to assure a continuity of supply on a large scale, the neW syndicate Tvas prepared to, spend in the  neighborhood of $6,000,000 in the establishment of a power plant with a  capacity ,of at least . 50.000 horsepower, a sawmill and a huge pulp and  paper mill in the .vicinity" of Prince  George. Just which one of three  hydraulic sites in the vicinity of  Prince George would be ultimately  chosen depended on further investigation by their engineers. • The plant  would be, a big one, Mr. McLean assured the Prince George citizens, and  would cover about 200 acres of ground  and employ fully 1,000 men in the  bush , and various industries in connection with the mill. It was planned  to" manufacture all kinds of paper,  from the fine varieties of note paper,  down through the list to .newsprint, including the much-used "kraft',; wrapping, and mercantile paper.  The only difficulty facing the establishment of the enterprise so far  is that certain modifications will be  required in the B. C. Forest Act, so  as to enable the syndicate to secure  an amplitude of supply of pulp wood  of the various kinds to assure them  of continuous operation for the next  ten years or so.'on the mammoth sca'le  on which they plan to supply not only  much of the Canadian and American  but also foreign -markets.^  .  First announcement on the lower  mainland of this huge enterprise was  made over a month ago in the B. C.  Record, which on that occasion gave  full details of the scheme and the personnel of the noted financiers avdo are  behind the venture, and which includes some prominent British capitalists headed by Lord Beaverbrook.
