C.— (Special)-—Two  money by-laws' aggregating $35,000 for  much-needed new schools, are to be  submitted to the ratepayers at the  coming municipal elections, according  to a decision of the school board at  its recent mooting. One of these bylaws is for $25,000 to provide a new  high school which will probably be  erected near Richmond, while the other by-law is for $10,000 to.provide for  an addition of four rooms to the existing school at Steveston.  The number of students in these  schools has increased very rapidly  since the war, and more accommodation is urgently needed now. The  need for additional class rooms has  become so'pressing that recently the  manual training and domestic science  classes have had to be given up simply for want of room.  T.G. McBRIDE & CO.

This    shows    somewhat  of a drop from the same month. last  year when the building total amounted  to  $16,995,200.    It  is  also  a  considerable decrease from the total for  October, .which amounted to $18,169,-  500.-   } On. the   year,   however,   there  has   been,   as   expected,   a   large   increase  over last  year,   for the   total  value of all buildings commenced ia  -  the Dominion for , thie past eleven  months' of^l920 _amounts, to $246,859,-  000 is compared with $181,131,900  during the corresponding months  1919, and* only $94,562,400  .1918. , This represents a very fair increase of '36.3 per cent, over 1919  and 161.1 per cent, over 1918.  - In view of the housing shortage  that-exists throughout the Dominion  it is satisfactory to note that of the  November total' of $15,399,200, fully  one-third was spent in the construction Tof new dwellings. Of these new  homes there were 652 started during  the month, of which 104 are located  in the four western provinces. Of  these 652 new residences, costing $3,-  137,900, 368 were of frame and 284  of brick construction*.

The council was also in receipt of  a voluminous Teport from Mr. E. J.  Matheson, the eminent bridge engineer, who heartily endorsed the plans  of Municipal .Engineer Jackson for  both the temporary and the permanent repairs. Mr. Matheson also gave  his opinion on the much discussed  question as to whether the present location of the bridge is the best under  the circumstances. He considers it is  and takes ■ issue in this respect with  tt& suggestion of the provincial government engineer that it should be  moved further up-stream.-  (Coiitlmieci from page I.)  prescn*. lease the Heaps Company has  the option oi puri-hasiug tlie property  at ?10*1,000, but that prire was set on  tho site in-the boom days and could  not be considered now.  Back1' of  the  desire  of   the   Heaps  Companv to acquire the site are three  good reasons.   Ono is Lhe necessity oi  owning the property in order to carry  out extensive permanent additions and  extensions to the plant which the company would not feel inclined to do on  leased   property.    Another   reason   is  that the firm is at present negotiating  with an eastern concern with a view  to  establishing  on  a portion  of  the  four-acre site not in use at present, a  factory for the building and  assembling of railroad  cars and  other machinery.    A third reason is that the  firm, by securing the property, wishes  to avoid paying a  special  tax which  the provincial government levies on industries operating on leased property.  The Heaps flrni at present employs  sixty hands   and. is   one of  the  best  established   industries ■ in   the   Royal  City.  /""  CANADIAN  JOHNS "MANVILLE  Company, Limited.  —allllll*>l    ■!■  ■ ■*»'— JllWIiri-l «*t  Asbestos and its allied products  a»«a«aMM.-M««'MNavnMaa«nM  / ■■'■'.
