Announces  Successful   Tenderers on-Eight Coaling  Stations  on Main Line.  As a preliminary step to meet conditions forced on the company by the  impending stoppage of the oil fuel  supply for its locomotives, it is announced by the C. P. R. engineering  department that contracts have already been..awarded for the construction of eight coal bunkering plants at  various stations along the Pacific division of thetC.*P.R. main line. These  eight bunkering plants will cost in" the  neighborhood of $100,000, although the  definite figures in the case of individual contracts are withheld for the  present.      ;  . The largest of the plants will naturally be at the terminus here, and will  be erected on the C. P. R. reserve in  Raise Creek, the Vickers Contracting  Company beings the, successful bidder  for'this job. The other plants are to  be erected-at Ruby Creek, Notch Hill;  Sicamous, Revelstoke, Albert Canyon,  JBeavermouth and Golden.  Successful tenderers on these individual plants are announced as follows:  False' Creek—Vickers Contracting  Co., Ltd., Dominion Building.

MAY   SUBMIT  BY-LAWS  FOR TWO  MILLIONS TO  ELECTORS/  IN  JANUARY;  Based entirely on a promise given  by Attorney-General Farris at a recent  meeting of the provincial executive  here that the government would, give  Vancouver-at least,$250,000 a year as  the city's share of the auto and amusement taxes' collected' by the province,  Mayor Gale proposes to submit two  money by-laws for, $2,000,000 to the  electors of J Vancouver at the civic  elections on January 13. One of these  money. by-laws, as proposed by the  mayor, is to be for $1,000,000 in* 6 per^  cent. 20-year bonds to provide for the  erection of a.combined city hall and  public auditorium. The auditorium  part of the combined building is to  be designed to'seat 5,000, so that it  may be used for conventions and other  large" gatherings as well as musical  festivals.'. The-other by-lawt is also to  be for $1,000,000 to provide for a comprehensive scheme of road improvement and street opening, which factors of community development has  been so sadly neglected here'tor the  last five years.  ' '  , In submitting, these by-laws'" to the  city council for .approval,. the^ mayor  It is only when October figures are  compared with other years that it is  apparent how far building activities  have dropped.

In the meantime there are such  urgently needed things as a fire-boat, a  and improvements to existing parks  and bathing beaches, that it would  seem better civic economy to put bylaws for these projects before the  ratepayers rather than for the erection of a more ornate building in  which the aldermen can orate.  Of the need for at least $1,000,000 for  a programme "of road improvement  throughout the city there should be  little difference .of, opinion. Every-  resident who pays,taxes should, have  a road that gives access to his home  and affords transport'for the necessities of life. But these things are lacking for many a home in the outskirts,  while many miles of macadamized  highway throughout the city generally  is sadly in need of resurfacing and  should be attended to at once.

When proper allowance has been  made for the differencsu ins construction costs as between 1920 and 1915,  for example, it" is obvious that the  volume of business in October, 1920,  was much less than 50 per cent, of the  October record in 1915.  3163—F.

A significant feature about this promise, however,-is-that Premier Oliver has,practically repudiated it and declined to  commit, the government to "such a financial allotment until such time as the  new'cabinet'meets and formally decides whether provincial finances and  the' heavy demand for public works  will allow of a'grarit of a quarter of a  million to- the; city.  Leaving aside the probability of  voting on these by-laws—should they  be ,.approved by~ the council—-being  largely .a. question of "counting your  chickens s before they are hatched," it  is.a debatable question in the minds  of,even the most ardent advocate of  !a-big h.uilding. programme-tor the city,  a* to whether this -$250,000.a year  shqujd be tied up and, disposed of sin  this way.

There is nc  gainsaying the fact that although' the  October gross tonnage total was 3,015,-  982 the total, tonnage for the year  will fall below that of last'year,and  will be the lowest annual production  since 1915. .There has been no-.increase in buying in the'last week, but  the general impression prevails that  business will shortly be.on the up  grade.
