NEW BUILDINGS PLANNED Another Era of Construction at Hand in Anticipation of Panama-Pacific Exposition 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 supplied. 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 hero from now on through the world ' Cable Address: ; .

It has been pro posed that the small lot owners in that area band together in companies of three or four and have large, invest ment paying apartment houses con structed on their adjoining lots. Many an owner of a narrow lot, valuable in itself, but yet not promising good re turns on the size building it could ac commodate, is considering arrange ments with adjoining lot owners for the erection of v building which would be held under joint ownerphip. This has been done by many realty owners, (md while the cost of construction to each owner has been much less, the re torn on the Investment has been much larger than If each owner built a Sep arate building.

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 OTIS ELEVATORS BEST FOR EVERY SERVICE Factory, San Francisco, Cal.

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 beauty. Hut the greater upbulldtnß of this iron and steel Industry depends upon the collective, co-operative support thrit is gained by cohesion of purpose.
