NEW BUILDINGS PLANNED
Another Era of Construction at Hand in Anticipation of
San Francisco is about to enter upon
Its second (Treat period of construction.
Blnce the big lire, approximately $200.
--000,000 has gone Into new Structures,
making the city unique In the solidity
and modernity of its edifices.
With the promise of a greatly ln
oreased population, augmented at the
*nd by a tremendous tide of travel,
iriven San Francisco by vote of con-
Kresa granting this city the Panama-
Paclflc international exposition in 1915,
It is probable that building activity in
all sections of the municipality will be
carried on at an exceedingly rapid rate
for the next four yearn. And it is
probable, also, that preparations for ac
commodating the greater population
will take tire form chiefly of apartment
house and flat construction. All lines
of building, however, will feel the im
petus, and San Francisco's contractors,
already famous throughout the world
for skill and thoroughness with which
they have built the reconstructed city,
will be given the task of eliminating
the vacant spaces still remaining to
remind the city of April 18, 1906.
According to the figures of last year's
building contracts, 1910 was chiefly de
voted to putting up living accommo
dations, and that movement, it is ex
pected, will now be increased in a re
markable ratio for the years preceding
the opening of the exposition. But
business houses will need more room,
too. New firms will sfart. and new
business buildings be In demand. At
the present time there is no great call
for loft space, but soon lofts will be
at a premium. The city Is on the eve
of prosperous years that will make a
call for room, and the room must be
Perhaps the greatest Interest at this
time Is taken In tha unbuilt section be
tween Powell street and Van Ness ave
enue, near the downtown district. In
which are unusual opportunities for re
munerative building. The homeseekers,
visitors and settlers who will be drawn

METAL TRADES THRIVE
State Holds Reputation Gained Long Ago in the Early
Days of Mining
H. W. KERRIGAN
Tt Is unnecessary to repeat the fact
that has been reiterated so often, that
of all the industries in the state of
California the iron and steel are the
largest and most powerful in the stock
equipment and financial interests they
represent and the number employed.
The conquest for Iron and steel In
dustries came with the great demand
for mining machinery in the early days.
That was the beginning of the develop
ment of the state <rf California. Since
that time the iron and steel Industries
have met ■with many reverses, although
with the great demand for machinery
for hydraulic mining, San Francisco
became known the world over for its
mining machinery, and even today in

The California Iron and steel product
even surpasses the eastern commodity
for the very reason that here th.-y
build more for durability and efficiency
than they do for show in architectural
Hut the greater upbulldtnß of this
iron and steel Industry depends upon
the collective, co-operative support thrit
is gained by cohesion of purpose. We
have far too many small manufacturers
who can not successfully compete with
the great inroads of eastern competitive
