The British Columbia Record Is the  official organ of The Architectural Institute of British Columbia, federated with  The Royal Architectural Institute of  Canada, and The Engineering & Technical Institute of British Columbia, and  as such is used by them as the medium  through which to make their official announcements  to   the  general  public.  By such   selection  the  British  Colum  Right in the middle of New Westminster's business district Mr. Thomas  found another bad fire trap, and this  particular case was one where if the  fire had ever started—and it had  plenty of chances to start every day—  $10,000 was considerably the lowest  for the work. Although the building  will have accommodation for four-  class rooms, it is only, intended to  furnish two of these rooms at the present time, although the demand for  additional accommodation „may require the other two by next February.  MINING  bia  Record   is   no   wise   p?ei«ed   to- edl;   it would have licked up a whole block  torial support of any policy advanced  by these societies, but maintains an absolutely independent position on all .matters subject to editorial opinion.  FIRE TRAPS.IN BUSINESS CENTRE  In these" days when high insurance  rates are keeping pace with the high  cost  of   living   and   buildings   of   all  ' kinds,   both   business   and  residental,  »re all too scarce, it is certainly surprising,   not  to  say criminally  negligent, for any local firm or individuals  to   endanger   other   buildings   in   the  crowded business district by maintaining such   a   fire   trap   as   that .which  J. A. Thomas, provincial fire prevention  fofficer,  called   the., attention .of    Fire  Chief Carlisle to a few days ago.   ,  In a letter to Fire Chief Carlisle Mr.  Thomas called the former's attention  to a building at 135 Hastings street,  ■where he reported that on the second  ■floor of the building he found condi-  "tions such as he characterized as "the  worst fire trap 4n  the city."   He declared that  he found  piles  of waste  •paper,  oily     rags,     excelsior,   broken  wood all lying around loose, and right  in the middle of all this inflammable  debris there was being operated a tool  and die  factory.    Part  of the  equipment 'of this factory was a gas heater  placed on a wooden  base,   the wood  of the latter being almost hot enough  to burst into "flame.    How it had not  done so, Mr. Thomas said was almost  a, miracle.  Mr. Thomas characterized such a  etate of affairs right" in the middle of  the business district and surrounded  by buildings  of a good  type but not  of frame buildings, thereby starting a  conflagration which would have endangered the whole city possibly, and  rendered a repetition probably of the  fire destruction of 190S;  While conditions in the matter of fire  hazards, are constantly growing better  in Vancouver, Mr. Thomas states that  there are a number of bad hazards  yet, especially in the case of two  garages in the west end of the city.  With the keen co-operation which the  local fire department is giving him  Mr. Thomas has every hope for continued improvement!  The   -Inland    Mining    Company    of  Walla Walla has purchased the Gran-  ite-Poorman  mine  near 'Nelson, "B. C.  from the Kootenay Gold Company, for  $60,000,   according   to   a   report   from  that   town.    Alfred   Batcho'lcl  will   be  managing  director  and   work  will   be  commenced at once on a deep crosscut tunnel.    This  is. one of the  best  known   mines  in  the  Nelson  district.  It   has   produced   a   large   amount   of  gold.  OPENS   SHEET   METAL  WORKS ON   RICHARDS ST.  Mr.   Alex.     McLeod,     who   is"  well  ' , - ' ■'"  known hi Vancouver, among the architects and building trades -generally,  has again- entered the sheet metal  business, in this city, having opened  a plant at 1042 Richards street under  the name of McLeod Sheet Metal  Works. ..'■■'.

PAINT   AND   DRUG   REPORTER  Paint  and   Drug .Reporter  says:   In  almost every branch of the paint industry just now is fully up t,o expectations.    In fact many people are finding a much better demand than they  had dared to .anticipate for this summer.   It was thought some months ago  that   it   would   take   lower   prices   to  start a  general  revival  of  trade, and  when it was seen that it was not going to be possible to bring about any  material cut in prices there Avas a fear  that  trade  might be  dull   for a  long  period.    However, for some time the  consuming  trade  has  shown a  disposition   to   ignore   high   prices   and   go  ahead.
