"Washington is twenty-first in the list
of cities arranged by comparison of tne
amounts for which building permits
were issued during the month of March.
Although this position is higher than
that held by the Capital for the past
several months, it shows a decrease of
42 per cent from the corresponding
months of last year.
This fact becomes less discouraging
when it is noted that losses are shown
In many of the most prominent Eastern
cities. New York shows a slight loss
2nd Boston, Brooklyn and Pittsburgh
show Tosses of from 36 per cent to 57

five leading cities canvassed. Permits
were taken out for buildings to cost a,
