The almost continual  rain.wb.ich has marked- this; j>eriod of  abnormal weather, when those engaged in outside work,can usually de-  'pend on fairly dry conditions, has  transformed the sub-gradea . in many  places into puddle holes which has  made the transport of materials a  very costly, proceeding, if not' a near-  impossibility in some cases. Several  instances are reported by leading contractors where the cost of transporting material has jumped over 300 per  cent.

PRICES  OF   HARDWOODS   LIKELY  TO ADVANCE  IN  NEAR,  FUTURE  • There is less concern just now in  the building trade generally over high  prices than over the. stability of  prices. < The general opinion is that  a new price level has .been established by economic conditions following the world war. Everyone has  been waiting for prices,of all lines  of building material, and especially  hardwoods, to drop, but they have  not dropped. Instead we '.find advances, in a number oi items in hard;  woods. , Flooring has gone, .up; so  have panels. .   ^   ■  Advances in hardwood prices at  this juncture, with such a large number of the better class of ^dwellings  under contemplation, ' would be a  rather serious matter for the locqj'  building trade as well as affecting  the industry all across Canada. Tho  construction of buildings and' manufacture of peace-time, conditions are  now in full swing, and there is every  evidence that'the stabilizing .of business is an accomplished fact. The  stability of business, caries with it  the stability of prices, and, therefore",  there should be no hesitation about  stepping in 'and sailing ■ along -with  the full "current of business, which' is  now showing evidence of an-acceier:  ated .flow after the, temporary lull  during mid-summer months.' 'v  Export buyers are at the present  time very active in the. matter ot  hardwoods, in the markets of both  Canada and the United States. When  it is' taken into consideration that  Russia, which before the war supplied over 45 per cent, of the lumber  used in the principal markets of  Europe, .is now entirely out of this  business and will not be a factor for  severalvyears 'to come, it can be  readily seen that the burden placed  upon this country in supplying the  European markets Is a serious one.  Russia's annual -export of lumber before the war was approximately 7,00,-  00,000 feet. This, in addition to the  very large quantity this country formerly shipped to Europe, must be  made up on this side of. the water.  And the making up of this trade balance, is a serious problem indeed with  transportation conditions as they- are  at present.  This enormously increased foreign  demand is already being felt, and by  way of reflex action" has already tended to make various items of hardwoods scarce and some dealers predict  u decided advance in prices.  to continuity of supply. The nearness  of these, road construction camps to the  city tends to draw a class of workmen  who are continually on the move.  They go to a camp and get wofk for  a few days, then return to the city to  lay off and spend the money they earn;  then off to another camp for another  short period of work.  '    *   '  '   Work is now being pushed with grim  earnestness on, the Peterson contract  tion of ferry landings,at both Woodward's handing, and Ladner on the  Fraser river. Bids will be .recetve'd up  to noon of Monday, October 11, and  plans and specifications may be obtained at the office of the district engineer, court house, Vancouver, or at  the public works department, Victoria, The usuaL.ton per cent, deposit  must accompany each tender.  New ferry landings have been badly  for the grading of a .section of the needed at both these places for some  Pacific Plighway. Work was continued time owing to the constantly increas-  by the iconstructin gangs right ^through < jng^amount of motor and other vehicu-  SEPTEMBER   BUILDING; '  NEARLY  DOUBLES 1919  The following is the report of Building Inspector Bird  for the month of  September, 1920:  No.  Permits     Value  Repairs  and Alter 120     S 74,861  Dwelling  Houses     38  .  140,-195  Factories and Ware....  .....    8  22,410  Parking Stations .......  ....    2  2,300  Offices and Stores   .....    8  139,500  September, 1920    ..176  379,266  September, 1919  ..;  .. 131  203,677  Jan. l-Sept. 30, 1920...  ..1311  2,982,060  Jan. 1-Sept. 30, 1920  952  1,601,348  the week-end, Saturday and Sunday, as  long as daylight lasted. Councillor J.  Wise of Surrey,' even drove the grader  for a spell on Friday during a temporary shortage of.men, just to help  the good work along. Contractor Peterson believes he can finish the undertaking in 25 working days now, if he  can get good weather that long. With  the government .behind it, there-should  be no, further delays in this contract.  The M. P. Cotton Company have  faced many unforseen difficulties.' They  recently purchased a new mirer but  it is ,not giving the satisfaction they  expected of it. Mr. Cotton expects to  complete his contract this fall,- if any  kind of an-unbroken stretch of good  weather favors the work.  In the Harrison & Lamond contract  for the paving of the road to Woodward's Landing, about fifty per' cent,  of the contract is already- laid* while  nearly the whole of the sub-grade is  finished, despite the' handicap of wet  weather. Four of .the five large culverts included in the contract have already been finished "and accepted* Jt>y  the' government. "This firm has also  added a new mixer to its equipment,  the results.'from which will be watched  with particular interest, as the ' mc-  chine was built in Vancouver and  much is expected of it by its makers.  On the .Palmer Bros.' contract at  Ladner, the concreting is expected to  commence this-week. They have goqd  hopes of being able to finish this season, as they are benefitting in their  execution of the work by the costiy  experiences of other' road contractors,  and some of the difficulties they have  had to overcome.  Whatever the outcome of the present large contracts for concrete paving  which have been awarded during the  past summer as part of the government's road building programme, contractors are agreed on one thing, and  that is that prices on next year's work  will show a very material advance.  The very higl? class of work demanded  by the government inspectors, combined with the closeness with which  the work is watched, makes it .necessary that no chances can be taken  with any parf of the work.  '  Whether o,r no all the present contracts cahibe finished before the'advent of the wet season makes further  progress impossible, all depends on  the weather now—and the contractors  are hoping for the best.  lar traffic acrss the Fraser river at  this point. The landings in each case  are'to be of the floating type secured  by piles, as owing to the varying  changes of water level due to both  tides and the state of tho rivor, it is  impracticable' to have a' fixed landing.
