FINE  HOME PLANNED  FOR WEST POINT GREY  Architect  Joseph   H.   Bowman,   716  estimated value of 275 per cent, compared with September, 1918. Of these  187 reports, 172 cities show increases  over last year. The total estimated  value of contemplated construction for  the country is $142,652,510 as against  *38,$37,420 for September, 1918.  The number, of permits granted  totals 38,741 for September, 1919, as  against 20,363 for September, 1918—  an increase of 90 per cent., the average value per permit being $3,692 as  ;against $185.. The latter figure clearly shows the influence of war restrictions, when most of the work, outside  of government buildings, comprised  only necessary repairs. Much-of this  large increase over last year is only  apparent. TJ.. S. Government. restrictions were in effect from the last of  September till November 21, i918, and  for a ten-roomed Dutch Colonial residence to be erected in West Point  Grey for a prominent local business  man. As soon as plans are ready for  tenders, notice will be given in the  Record.

The  nine   loans   aggregate   $29,200,   which  tgether with some $160,000 passed in  the previous 32 applications approved  by the council, makes a total of about  $189^000 that has already been authorized to be spent in new dwellings for  returned   veterans.     The   city's   total  allocation for this  purpose  from  the  provincial government  was  $300,000.  The applicants and the amounts  granted for house-building purposes  by the council are as follows:  George Cater, 2761 McGill St., $3,500  A. A. Copping, 2444, 21st Ave. E.,  $3,300.*  Wm.

Eastern cities show an increase of  295 per cent., 70 out of 74 reporting  gains; middle state cities, 336 per  .cent, increase, 46 out of 51 reporting  gains; southern cities, 282 per cent,  increase, 35 out of 38 cities reporting  gains; and western cities, 89 per cent.  increase, 21* out of 23 cities reporting  gains. As compared 'wtih August,  1919, the September total shows a decrease of 19 per cent. Ths is only  natural, as the slack season for building was then approaching, especially  for eastern and middle west "cities.  During   the  past  year  the   cost   of  .frame   dwellings   has   risen   considerably and next spring it is expected a  further slight^ advance will be noted.

Yet in spite of this  advance, which is typical of all kinds  of construction   the  demand in  New  York and practically all large eastern  cities, is so great that people simply  must build, and so construction is active  and   will   continue to  be  so  for  several years at least in spite of expected higher costs for next year.   >  Much depends on the final outcome  of the coal strike in regard to the  expected increase in building costs  and the building situation generally  in the easf and middle west Soft  coal, which is at present more than a  third   cheaper   than   anthracite,   will,  seven homes.

In our Monday issue an item appeared   that Alderman   Dodd   and   Robert
Steele  of  Westminster  had   acquired
the    old    Brookes    Woodworking    on
Eleventh   St.   and   were   intending  to
manufacture   furniture.     This- report
is totally incorrect, as 11 r. Brooks of
The James Brookes Woodworking Co..
■advises the Record that the plant acquired   by  these  men   is  that of  the
Westminster,   Woodworking    Co., and
not that of the James Brookes Woodworking Co.    Mr. Brookes states that
his   company   has   several   large   contracts in different parts of B. C. and
that they have, no intention whatever
of retiring from business.
