Those wil,h money and nri intention of investing in Covirm rwil estate who fire acting promptly «ro anting wisely. With each passing week it In very likely that; the bargains will become fewer In number. Money IB already becoming le«s difficult to secure nnrj, HH is alwayfl the case after a stringency, there will be Hn abundance of money in a few months. There will be loss demand lor it and intercut rates will certainly drop. The rush of business during the 1'ist two or three years offered such largo temptations that, nearly all strained their credit an far as it would stretch arid carried immense obligations at the hanks in order to spread out, in thoir buslneHH enterprises. Thai, IH till gone. The money stringency put an end to'that, and now'the purpose in mind of every business man, whether merchant or manufacturer, whether large or small, JH to liquidate with the utmost dispatch compatible with carrying on' his businofH, We ail got the habit o( plunulrig more or less in the (lush times and now we have all got the habit of contracting. Habits are persistent and when once we sot our minds in a particular direction we do not change quickly. A year i>go merchants who, two years before that, had been carrying obligations at the banks of say 810,000, increased their indebtedness to $30,000, or perhaps even more. They have been taking up their notes with great freedom and have brought their indobted- neos not only down to the normal point, but below it. All that means -Itlct^f if 'nrifiey }n the near future. Similarly, the slackened pace in building operations has brought down wages very materially. Jri the building trades wages are probably fully a third lower than they were a year ago, or indeed since the rebuilding of Ban l<Yancisco began in earnest, arid drew so many skilled mechanics to that, point. Material f<;r buildings has fallen, us well as labor. It is said that, brick can bo laid in the wall in Los Angeles today for 8(i to $8 a thousand., That is cheap building material of the best kind. Clump money, cheap labor and chciip material must robult in more activity in building. A Warning to be Heeded. Our diti/ens have read with horror this week of the burning of 180 human beings in a small country theater at IJoyorlown, I'a. It has now been shown conclusively that many of these would have escaped but, for the fact that the door of the building opened In instead of init. Those became closed in tho mad panic, that orwuod and It wan only a question of a few moniimts until tlio bodies worn piled hiuh around the exits, and tho maddened crowd found thviiiHolvos penned in like rats in a trap. Lot our citi/.oriH tako warning. Nearly every public hull in this olty is similarly constructed and a catastrophe, even of this awful nature, may happen hero at any timo. Tho doors of ovory .public building should swing outward. Tho Argus respectfully asks tho owners of pub lie halls to givo thin thoir immediate attention. \Vt- fci»l that this action on our part in all*that is nucossary to tiooure stops for tho public ha f i)ly. Congratulations. T. K. Kinch, tho popular manager of tho San Gabriel Valloy Milling Company, in receiving tho congratulations of bib friends this weok.
