Modern Finishing Mill Being Erected for Stone Company
Finishing Mill for the Pacific Con
solidated Stone Company
in Los Angeles
Los Angeles has a double interest in
the development of the building .stone
resources of the southwest. The indus
try itself would give employment to
many men, provide traffic for the rail
roads, and would bring much outside
capital into this section of the rtate,
thus promoting the prosperity of the
country tributary to this city, and the
use of marble and sandstone in build
ing would add greatly to the beauty of
the city Itself.
The fact that the attention of eastern
capitalists has been drawn to the mar
ble and sandstone deposits in the south
west, coupled with the fact that already
development has shown the presence of
an enormous (Quantity of high-grade
building material—marble, sandstone
an.] granite—suggests that in nil prob
ability the production of building ma
terial will become in the mar future
one of the important industries of this
section of tiie state.
There is no doubt that marble, gran
ite and sandstone exist, and there is
also none respecting their high quality.
The fact that very little high-grade
white marble is produced in the United
States will make a strong demand for
material Of that kind from this state,
and one may foresee extensive ship
ments to all parts or the country, par
ticularly when the new plant of the
Pacific Consolidated Stone company in
Ix.s Angeles li a reality.
Viewed from the standpoint of its
relation to the beauty of this city, the
production of white marble upon a
scale which would admit of its exten-

Buy a lot now and profit by the rise that is sure to
come at once. First allotment of lots now soiling at $300
and upward on easy payments. Street work all done at
sellers' expense. I have been empowered to sell only the
first allotment at present prices. There wKi not be enough
of these to go around, so first applicants will get first choice.
Still the second allotment will be well worth the advanced
prices—only, if you buy now you save the difference.
Excellent chance for every enterprise and every line of
business. The town is a railroad terminal, is less than a
year old, has about 3000 population now and growing rap
idly. Lots in the original tounsite that sold for $300 in the
beginning now bring $3000. These lots ahould advance even
more rapidly, as the town has already a good start.

Blve use in this city is Of direct inter- I
est to everyone who appreciates the
dose relation between civic beauty and
prosperity, especially in a city which, ;
like Los>Angeles, derives so much profit
from the visits of tourists, and owes bo
large a percentage of its population to
the fact that It is a delightful place of
residence. Large marble, granite and
sandstone buildings lining the streets
of the. business section would give Los '
Angeles a brightness and beauty un- :
equaled in any other city in the United I
States and by few places in the old
world. , >- : " i*rl.J*
The question of production is chiefly
one of development, for already the
company operating in the Inyo district
has demonstrated that the production
of marble Is assured; and it is due to
this fact more than to anything else
that Investors have been induced to
look further into the possibilities of the
The production of white marble, gran
ite and sandstone is an assured fact,
for it is now In progress and it will
be enlarged by the investment of more
capital and the development of deposits
not yet touched.
H. L. Thornton, general manager of
the Pacific Consolidated Stone compa
ny, and Drew Haven Dunn, one of the
directors of the company, returned the
past week from an Inspection of the
company's quarries at Inyo, and are
conclnved that their concern, when the
new finishing plant in Los Angeles Is
completed, will be in position to fur
nish the United States with all the
marble as well as all the granite or
sandstone which will be needed for
all the buildings now In contemplation
or which may be contemplated for
hundreds Of years to come.
General Manager Thornton will leave
this week to Inspect a newly found de
posit of California marble, which if
proved to be of as great value as its
discoverers say It is, will be added to
the holdings of the Pacific Consolidated
Stone company.

mikes a total of forty-three houses

firm believer that every young man
should own his own home, and intend:',
to sell his houses on such easy terms
that every individual earning a salary,
large or small, will be able to secure

bunch of twenty-five houses, four, five

different plan and all built by day
labor and of selected material. Pleasant
View Terrace Is on the Eagle Rock

cent fare, with plenty of shade trees,
gas, electricity and all modern Im

is the fact that this last bunch of
houses closes out every unsold lot he
owns on the tract.

between Fourth, Fifth, Wilton and

the latter taking in the territory be

Coast Marble and Granite Highly
Regarded by Prominent
Eastern Architect
H. C. Brubaker, an architect from
Indianapolis, is at the Van Nuys hotel.
Mr. Brubaker Is in Los Angeles look
ins over two buildings in this city for
which he has,made plans and speci
fications; and also with a view toward
making an Investigation of what
Southern California and adjacent ter
ritory has to offer In the way of
marble and other building stone.
Mr. Brubaker has made plans for a
ten-story building in El Paso, Tex., in
which California marble and Arizona
sandstone may be used. He expresses
himself as being very much pleased
with the samples of California marble
and other building stone shown him,
particularly with the latter as dis
played in the new federal building.
He believes that with proper ex
ploitation California marble may be
given a wldf use throughout the United
States, particularly In that portion of
the United States west of the Missis
sippi river. He pronounced it equal to
anything quarried in Vermont, Ten
nessee, Georgia or other of the great
marble producing states of the Union.
