AUTBOBIZE  CEANGE8 ~*  IN  BUILDING  BY-LAW  Victoria  Council Adopts ^ Slany .Amendments -for Now Constrnction.  The Victoria-Council has authorized a  number of important changes in the regulations which were brought into force  early hist year.. The stringency.of these  regulations which called" for .a strictly  flieproof structure in the No. 1 -fire  limits has been relaxed and now buildings of the type known as mill-construction may be erected in the first limits  but a limit was set in that such structures cannot be of greater height than,  fifty-five feet from the sidewalk level  to ;the coping, or practically four stor-  reys. Onv ihe other hand the same type  of building1 can be erected outside the  flrst limits to a height of eighty feet'.  The bylaw goes into details of" construction as to the enclosing of sta|r  ways, elevator shafts, etc., and many  sections ,deal with the better protection from the standpoint of fire. "r'_v  , On- the general point of height "of  buildings no- structure ������lt is provided,  shall be higher than 130 feet above"* the*  sidewalk and only steel frame construc-  tures can be built to that height. Reinforced concrete structures shall not  exceed 100 feet and structures of all  other types shall not exceed eighty feet  except In the case of mill-construction  in the flist limits which, as stated, shall  not exceed fifty-five feet. -  The erection of signs upon roofs  within the limits, except upon permission  being secured from the Council, is prohibited, ,and the moving of wooden  buildings inside limits No. 1 and No.  2, or into those limits is piohibited, but  such stiuctures Inside such limits, may  be moved to points, outside. Special  provisions in the new by-law and specifications of such as set foith detailing  the manner in which they shall' be constructed and erected* x The fire chief  may order fire gongs to be placed In  hotels, apartments, houses, lodging and  rooming houses.  Provision Is also made for the enforcement of orders issued by the build  Ing Inspector covering the erection of  scaffolding for the- pi otection _of_ work^_  men on buildings under construction or  repair. *  The building by-law as amended will  be consolidated and printed, all0 copies  of the old by-law having been disposed  of, A charge of twenty-five cents per  copy will be made.  Clause 40, dealing with fire escape*),  showed that standard fire escapes will  be required to be provided, with "secure  fastenings" to  the  buildings.  A clause to deal with the inspection  of scaffolding was adopted as requested  by  the building Trades'  council.  The solicitor was Instructed to consolidate all  building by-laws.  Editor's Note���������As soon as a revised  copy of the new Victoria building by-law  is a\allnble the Building Record will  publish In more detail all the essential  changes made.

C. S. Courses during spare time.   One letter gives the romance of a young man in California that_  began with little or no education; another tells the story of a high  school graduate in Maine that found himself educated for everything  but to make a living. Here are the heart-trobs of a fellow that toiled  12 hours a day and studied his Course as best he could; of a foremen or superintendent that enrolled because his ambition aimed  at still bigger things.  . No matter where you live, how little spare time you have, or  how brief your schooling, the I. C. S. can raise your salary. That  statement is backed with 20 years of success and a record of 400  or more advancement letters received every month.  I. C. S. Courses have made draftsmen, foremen, and superintendents of shop hands; "building'contractors, architects, structural  and concrete engineers'of carpenters and masons; advertising men,  window triramers.o.chemists, illustrators, and designers of clerks;  electrical, mechanical��������� and steam engineers of laborers; mine inspectors, foremen, and mining engineers of mine workers; bridge  engineers, surveyors and mappers, civil engineers, gas engineers,-  automobile runners and civil service employees of young men willing to use their spare time to mold a career.  Suppose you were to increase your earnings only $20 a month���������  what a fine return that would be on your spare-time investment!  Yet some have increased their earnings $250 a month.  Mark and mail this coupon and you will receive free information how you can increase your earnings by spare-time study.
