The Provincial Government having placed  $200,000 in the estimates for this project, and the Canadian Pacific Railway  being'wiring to spend f 100,000, the  city will probably be called upon to  pay in the neighborhood of $250,000,  or more, as the present market price  of steel would make the bridge cost  approximately $5S0,000, inclusive of  materials, engineering and labor.

The  hall, which besides being intended as  a fitting and permanent memorial to  the gallant so'.diers from the municipality who gave their lives in the Empire's cause, will form an important  rallying point in many social and  physical phases of the life of the community, will, appropriately enough, be  built" by returned soldiers, for the bidding will probably be confined to that  class.

SHOULD BUILDERS BE LiCENSED?  There was recently defeated in the  New   Jersey   legislature  by   one   lone  vote, a bill providing for the licensing  of   builders.    In   .Milwaukee   recently  •a bill giving tlie city power to license  building contractors was instroduced,  "and is making headway.   Agitation for  the   licensing  of   builders   is   nothing  new, but the close call for ithe measure in New Jersey shows that it can  be expected to pass, in some state or  the American union in the near futue.

Again,   sad   experiences  with many fireplaces have caused the  i open fireplace to be regarded with suspicion.     Four-inch   walled   chimneys,  unlined.   have   caused   many   a   lifetime's savings to go up in smoke; floor  joints framed into chimneys, construction that causes    plasiter    cracks—all  these  should  and  can  be. eliminated.

But  supposing' the   provin-"I bu"'<" properly, who, if he makes a mis-  cial legislature should tack on' an additional   builders'   license  fee?  Would this be a good thing for the  'trade in general? Would it tend to  concentrate work in the hands of the  •big contractors; eliminating the small  'men?   Jy.  The answer to these questions, both  locally, as well as applying to the  proposed American law, depends largely oh the manner in which the bill is  finally  draflted   before  enactment.  Undoubtedly the majority of capable  'contractors would welcome any one  •general law tending to prevent cutthroat competition and the irresponsible bids indulged in by the contractor who is not enough of a businessman  to know his costs.
