Harvie of the Harbor  Board that plans for the new tug-  boac wharf at the foot of Gore Avenue are now ready and all that delays the calling for {tenders on the  construction of the wharf is a settlement of the controversy between  the city and the board, over the right  to construct the wharf there and  what share of the rentals are to go  to the city an/1 board respectively.  1L is expected that the city council  will take some action on thiy ques-  lion at its meeting today.  occupied     by  the    Toronto    General  Trusts  Company,  when, that concern  vacates   the   premises   to, move   into  its  own   new  building now  being re-  modelled at the corner of Pender and  Seymour   streets.   ■ Extensive   alterations  are also planned  fof^the  basement   of   both   the   present   and   the  enlarged bank premises..

As soon as the Dlans are complete,  Architects Sharp and Thompson will  be calling for tender^ but owing to  the rather complicated and exacting  nature of the work, tenders will be  asked only front-selected contractors.

More'lh'an three thousand dwellings  will have been "constructed throughout Canada under the Soldier Housing  Act by the end of the present, year,  while in some parts of the Dominion,  especially southern British Columbia,  where the climate permits, operations  will go ahead throughout the winter.  Construction in all provinces will be  limited only by the exhaustion, of-the  appropriation of $25,000,000 which the  Dominion Government allocated to  the different provinces.  In the early nart of the year the  plan was not availed of as readily as  had been expected. This was- attributed to it not being understood  properly, and also to shortage of labor  and materials. Experience has- shown  the desirability of some changes in  the-legislation to suit different localities, and these will undoubtedly be  m'ade%at the. fcext .session in case of  any further federal- appropriation—for  it is conceded that with the housing  shortage still such a nation-wide issue  that, there should be a further appropriation by parliament when it meets  ■again. ,    '  ■ In some of the, provinces, particularly Ontario, the federal grant has beln  supplemented by provincial grants.  In Ontario's case the federal and provincial grants aggregated $11,000,000.  In that province also, ' authority is  given V9 municipalities to issue debentures to augment building;activity  in the erection of new homes.  In Vancouver and its immediate environs full use has now been made  of the total allocation from the provincial government and the individual  appropriations to "Vancouver, South  Vancouver, Point Grey, Burnaby 'and  North Vancouver are now about exhausted'. With Vancouver's allocation  of $300^000 a total of 85 soldier homes  have been,built;.a*nd there are appli-  ca'tiohs on hand for another-score, if  there, were .only funds available." In  New Brunswick, about 50 houses have  been built under the scheme; in Quebec ^.both model garden suburbs and  whole towns have been erected, mainly for returned soldiers.  1 While not much has yet been done  In Nbva/S&tia, great activity is promised next year.

VICTORIA    ALDERMAN  AWARD   BRIDGE  JOB  (Continued from page 1.)  side firms.  The protest from the Contractors'  Association of Vancouver was wired  to Mayor Porter who in turn laid it  before the special bridge committee  when the bridge tenders were being  considered. The telegram stated in  lointed terms that it was not busi-  i.ess-like or ethical for, the council to  accept Engineer Preston's tender,  which was admittedly lower than  either of the three others "■ submitted  by reputable firms. It was pointed  out in the telegram that naturally  the city's own engineer did not allow for any small margin of profit  such as a private contracting firm  would have to compute in order to  exist. It was further contended that  should Mr. Preston fail to complete  the work at the figure he submitted,  then the city would be the material  loser, while if a private company ran  over its estimate, it alone would  h.ave to stand the loss.  The legal aspect of the city's right  to award the contract to its own en-  gineer was also questioned by' one  of the aldermen. This led to a ruling by the city solicitor that although  Mr. Preston' did not fulfil the terms  of the other tenderers in enclosing  a marked check with his bid, the city  had a technical legal right, if it  wished to exercise it, to instruct its  own engineer to do. the work. This  was covered in the phrase "the lowest or any tender not necessarily accepted."  Final' disposition of the question  is expected to be made by the city  council at its meeting today (Monday), although further opposition is  expected to develop then to the course  suggested  by the committee.
