This bylaw.was passed after  ■careful investigation and consultation  with, the highest legal authorities as  to whether the council had the power  to legislate to itself such powers.  This indicates unmistakably that the  xsitizens of Glencoe are determined to  have no "eye-sores" in their town. The  action of the Glencoe council might  "well be followed by the Vancouver City  Council. For Vancouver has a few—  and quite a few at that—eyesores of  her own. Many of these could- be  readily and effectively cured with a  coat of paint—a simple arid effective  cure.', Others need more drastic methods; but the remedy should be applied.  Vancouver should hardly heed the  passing of a by-law to force her to get"  rid of the ugly spots. Once the citizens get through with the present-"labor troubles and into the stride, ot regular civic peace again, one.»ot the  first things that should, be; done is to  make  a determined effort to get rid  PEARSON WIRE & IRON  of these ugly spots. ,  There are some sections of the city  that will have to be more or less' unsightly for perhaps a few years while  their ultimate industrial development  . is in process.    An example of this is  j the reclaimed portion of False Creek  where the Canadian National Railways  system plans such extensive terminal  development  and  which  will   require  several   years   to   approach   anywhere  near   completion. .   Then ■ there    are  such  necessarily unfinished things as  the  False  Creek  sea-wall  which .is  a  sure-enough   eye-sore   at  present,- but  which  it is hoped  will  be satisfactorily settled and the litigation closed before long.   The Coal Harbor causeway  is  another undertaking that,  while  a  work of real landscape art in itself, is  still   in   process   of   development  and  its surroundings are still very crude.  Improvement might be made there in  that respect, even if the full scheme in  regard to the upper basin of Coal Harbor cannot be carried out at present.  But the real eye-sores at present-are  the    unsightly,    tumble-down    houses,  fences and outbuildings in many portions of the city, which the city building inspector can condemn but hasjnot  the power to tear down at present. In  such cases -a bylaw like the one> the  Glencoe council passed would produce  effective results,  CORRECTION  In our issue of June 13, it was announced that the firm of McArthur,  Stewart & Williams had been awarded a contract from W. P. Tierney &  Co., for the construction of 1 1-2 miles  of work on the Copper Mountain Railway. The contract was awarded to  this firm by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, not W. P.

Sqaiw'lSei  COSTS  IN   RETAIL  HARDWARE TRADE  Results of an investigation of operating expenses and profits in the retail hardware stores in 39 states and  Canada, have just been made public  by the bureau of business research of cessories  Harvard University. The report deals  with the war years, 1917 and 1918, and  shows that, the average figure for total  expense in retail hardware stores during this period was 20.G per cent. of.  the sales. The average net profit was  found to be G per cent, of the sales  and the average rate of stock-turn 1.8  times a year. '-.'*■,  "These figures can be used by any  hardware retailer as ca guide with  which to compare his own results,"  said Melvin, T. "Gopeland, director of  the bureau. "All the statements have  been adjusted to the uniform accounting system that is being introduced  in the trade, so that they tally with  each other. This inquiry has brought  out the fact that the average investment in merchandise, owing primarily  to higher prices, was about 5 per cent,  greater in retail hardware stores in  January, 1919, than in January, 1918.  It has shown, furthermore, that in  stores with an annual volume of business of ?50,000, the expenses, in percentage of sales, are generally as low  as in stores with sales amounting to  over'•■5100,000'a year/  1288.
