From a list of sixty-  three cities througliout the country, representing building centres, reports if  permits Isbued show a loss In Hhe aggregate of 2S per cent, as compaied with  the same month last year. And this  decline is noticeable particularly in the  larger cities. Crop failures in the middle west may have^ had something to do  with.it, but the general business depression accompanying the proposed  change in the tariff schedule and a sort  of uncertainty in the money market has  had as much to do^.with the result as  anything else, it is said.  -  FRASER RIVER PILE DRIVING  P.
