BURCK CO. $400,000 IN CASH FOR COAST BASINS Huge Dredging Enterprises in! Progress at San Pedro Harbor CANAL STREET FILL ACCEPTED Growing Activity in Realty Deals. Investors Alive to Impor tance of Situation In rill Us history Pan Pedro has never shown greater development ac tivity than at present. The entire har bor section feels the quickening touch of fresh capital placed daily by wise investors, whose, faith in the grrnt fu turf> <if the harbor towels is unbounded. Owners of manufacturing enterprises generally are preparing for the future with commendable energy. The Pacific Manufacturing company has enlarged its plant so that it now lias a capacity of 26,500 brick per day with drying sheds to accommodate, a ten days' con tinuous run. It is expected that the. output for the season will amount to about four million brick. Many orders arc on flic from northern ports, vessels going from San Pedro to load lumber, taking this product at a very low rate, rather than go light altogether. This is an advantage that could well be In vestigated by Los Angeles jobbers. The most Important news for Wilm ington that has developed for some time, is the fact that the new grade proposed by Homer Hamlin, city en gineer, and the. board of. public works. providing for a fill of seven feet on portions of Canal street and at other points in proportion, is likely to be accepted without a protest. As is well known, the present town site is as it lias always been, about three feet above the level of the sen. In some places the tide backs up al most to the business houses. There are many depressions in which the water stands for long periods after the. winter rains have ceased. If the plans of the board of public works are ac cepted this area will all be filled to a point which will afford a complete and excellent system of drainage and will add much to the sightliness of. the town as a whole. The appropriations provide for nearly $400,0110 to be spent In dredßinc In botii the east and west basins and ft is known that a portion of the one mil lion dollars In bonds which have .inst been voted by Greater l,"s Anjreles ■will be spent in the same manner.
