We bid fair to be soon in the' midst  of an'orgy of building.* It will have  to come sooner or later, and at present  the. bugbear of 'high ' material costs  seems to' be about the only thing that  is holding up a lot1 of important construction projects.      "''■ ■>  When the" armistice was signed a  few long-headed owners went ahead  immediately. Some merely went into'  print, telling the country of their firm  conviction that prices were due to'advance and not to recede, and that  construction on the cost basis'.of late  1918" and' early 1919 was low as compared to what w,e jmight expect for  many years'thereafter.- Others" wisely  backed that belief by-construction.--  .' But the cbulk- of thought- on the part  of those whose money was* to be* ex-  pended j was; "'Let's*: wait and see."  Months passed" and "as"work opened  up everyone began bidding for structural steel/, re-inforcing " steel, steel  eashp* cement,-' tile, sand and brick.  \& production was short, visible supplies vanished. Inevitably prices "went  up,^except' for a.iew. nqtable exijepV  tlons.    c^-._ - ; 'Z  ', 'The same men of finance and business were opposed - to having " prices  rise still higher and advocated at  least .the holding of the price level  prevailing at the end of the'war. This  promised . a continuance of , wage  scales at existing, levels until- such  time as the cost of ilying might be  reduced. Yet the action of owners and  of contractors serving them has upset  the nfarket and sent prices for some  materials to the highest levels on  record. There was an effort to cover,  not only for legitimate buildirtgs  which ' owners actually had funds to  build, but for an immense amount of  work not yet designed and '.without  hope of financing.,  'The volume of orders resulting was  wholly beyond the ability of material  manufacturers' in some lines,' .noticeably steel and cement in eastern supply circles to cover. The western  field, while lamentably short of steel  and much delayed by its slow deliv-  ! ery, generally was better supplied than  the east in regard to cement.

President E. W. Beattj% of  the Canadian Pacific TRailway, has announced new terminals, a new station  and railway office buildings- there as'  soon as the bridge'work is under way.  > The Canadian National Railway is  also waiting on the bridge to bring  its line-in from Point Ellice and build  permanent passenger terminals across from the foot of Johnson street..  Much  Work On   Reserve'' ■  Costly work will have to be done  on the Reserve to provide connection,  with the bridge before it is completed.  This includes the extension of Johnson street to Esquimalt road and tlie  construction of several other road--  ways in the Reserve area to provide  access for factories and railway  freight yards.  A new Dominion Marine Agency  building is to be built on the far side  of the harbor as soon as the bridge  is under way.   -  Outside of the big construction jobs  enumerated here, Building Inspector  Barf estimates that- between now and  next Ma}- there will be more than  $500,000 of small building work started here.  f ^  Gunzeon <2& White  PLUMBING AND  HEATING  -KABIZTB    WOBX    AND    OBNBBAX.  .
