Evidently stung into action  by the  editorials in  this  paper, which  alone  of   all. the   publications   in   the   city  pointed out the danger of further delay, the city aldermen last Thursday  suddenly got real busy and appointed  Sergt. Arthur Bird, a returned veteran,  as city  building inspection.    The position, which had been vacent for two  months   longer   than   there   was   any  necessity for,  which  allowed  the  department to become more or less disorganized  and    under-staffed    in   the  meantime, will now be filled not only  by,a returned man, but also a former  architect and a nominee of the B.C.  Technical Institute.   Prior to enlisting  for overseas service Sergt. Bird was .'a  well known local architect and designed and supervised the construction  of"a number of important local buildings. His appointment, even if somewhat belated, due to delay on the part  of the council, looks like the right  man in the right place. He will enter  upon his" new'duties atone of the most  important times in the building history of the city, with the best wishes  of all parties in the construction and  building trades.  dominHon-wide strike pending  There are enormous possibilities for  evil in the sympathetic strike which  Avas engineered by the Bolsheviki ele-  A new bond has been taken on the  (Burniere group on Fish river, owned!  by CoryL: Menhinick, of Camborne,  and capital is being raised in the  east to develop the property, which  carries free gold, some rich samples  of whioh have been sent , to the  coast.  : The Dolly Varden mine, which was  the subject of special legislation at  the recent session, is to pass into  the handJs of the Taylor Engineering  Company of this city.

THE   IRON   AGE  The open market that has existed  recently in steel products has not been  generally recognized because it did  not show widespread and sensational  price cutting. The .industry, without  any concert has been limiting operations to the business coming in. In  the past ""week that hast»mean,t further  shutting down of blast furnaces and  curtailment of working time at the  steel works. Generally a 50 per cent,  operation or somewhat less is indicated among independent companies. The  Steel Corporation is on a 70 per cent,  basis in the Chicago district, and is  nearer to 00 per cent, in Pittsburgh  and the Valleys.
