This is but one of the many build

for which were taken from the Inyo
quarries. Others were the Mills build

in San Francisco and the great Homer
Laughlin building in Los Angeles.
The inyo quarries are now about to
be opened up and properly exploited
with a view toward making them, as
was intended by nature, the greatest
marble quarries on the continent.
The Pacific Consolidated Stone com

other equally valuable deposits, and is
planning now a mill to be erected in

Old Favorite Flats Do Not Pro
duce Enough Coin—New
People who keep in touch with build
ing operations in this city notice quite
plainly the decrease in the number of
"flat buildings" that were once so
popular in Los Angeles and were
erected scores at a time. In the ever
onward progressive movement the
"flat buildings" have faded into the
background while the apartment houses
have taken their places. There are
two reasons for this, the first being
that there Is an increased demand for
apartments with all their conveniences,
and the second and principal one is
that owners can derive more revenue
from money expended in an apartment
house than from the same amount
placed In flats. Among the many res
idences and other buildings planned by
local architects during the past week
are the following as reported to the
Builder and Contractor:
A. B. Benton —Plans for two-story
Httlc and basement residence to bo
built on Gramercy place, between
Fifth and Sixth streets, for Martin
V. McQulgg.
Ye lanry—Plans for two-story frame
rooming house to be erected at SlO
Beacon street at a cost of $7500, for
Hi land R. Crowd!.
A. C. Smith—Plans for one-story
frame store building to be erected on
Sixteenth street, near Grand avenue,
for Mr. A. ('. Colgan.
John C. Austin—Plans for five-story
and basement addition to be erected to
the Hampden Arms hotel on Fifth
street, near Olive street.
Norman F. Marsh—Plans for new
hospital to be built at intersection of
Orangs and Witmer streets for Ostoo
pathic Hospital association.
Dennis & Farwell —Plans for apnrt
mont house to be ere. ted at Ninth
and Hoover streets for Dr. D. W.
Stewart. Tt will be a three-story struc
ture containing I^o rooms and forty
two baths.
John C. Austin —Plans for two-story,
attir and basement residence to be
built In Albambra for W, B. Allen.
NPher & Skilllng—Plans for six-story
hotel to be erected at Fifth and Olive
streets for R. D. Wade and associates.
George F. ('osterisan—Plans for four
room annex to be built to the Cole
grove school.
Striking Evidence of Expansion in
Residential Section
£ir!kinr evidence of the rapid growth of
tli" i!f«ly annexed Wilshire and Arlington
Height* sections of the. city Is offered by the
Union Hollywood Water company, which sup
plies that large district, This corporation re
ports that twenty-three carloads of pipe are
required to furnish the service demanded by
the opening of new tracts and subdivisions.
This is equivalent to seven miles of pipe,
which means that Just that many miles of
new residential territory Is being opened. As
water mains are not installed until the com
pany sees good pnmpects for consumers, the
ft«ur»p in significant. Among the tracts
which are being piped by the Union Hollywood
Water company are the Arlington Heights
Boulevard, 'N'cstneidK. West Adams I'ark
plai'e, rjienwood tract south of f'olegrove, Van
M; Avenue Square and many others.
C. A. Wesbecher, tract agent for

This marks the ninth Quarter, or 11
months of Homo Builders' activities its h
building enterprise in Los Angeles, and Its
growth has hoen little short of marvelous
—a stride aulte In .time with the own ward
march of Los Angeles.
Twenty-seven months ago when the or
ganization was effected, the original cash in
hand amounted to only $1250. The financial
statement or the enterprise shown assets or
$600,000, with a surplus of over 1100*000.
Home Builders plan differs from many
building com pan Us, in thut it Bella homes
before they build them. During the tlrst
twenty-m^ en month i of Homo Builders'
activities it has sold and built over 100
handsome homes, It now has to hand and

other city In the whole world can the paral
