IK BUSINESS WORLD 8y JOHN T. tflYNN. NEW YOftK, Nov. 4.—Perhaps nothing is an unmixed curse. That is true of our stock market collapse. And in no line should the effect of the col- lipsa be more readily seen than the building; Industry. The trend of building has been somewhat downward. But this had been due, we have been told, to higher interest rates, more expensive credit. If that Is true, now we have about a billion and a half formerly loaned to brokers which is now available for some other use. And along with it we have a reduction In the rediscount rate which will help to make money cheaper. Building then ought to improve, if it Is money it needs. In the first quarter of this year there was a decline of 18 per 1 cent compared with the same .period last year. In the second quarter .the decline was 0 per cent. In the third quarter it was 8 pep cent. The figures so far available Indicate that in this final quarter it may be larger. I do not put too much faith in these figures. They do not, I am convinced, include all the activities of the construction industry. Nevertheless they do indicate a decline. The building materials Industry has ' been somewhat adversely affected by lower prices. Yet the prices are not sufficient to deprive it of profits—and good profits—and the price decline is due not to declining building-but to excessive production. There Is little doubt that any thing will correct this save readjustments, in, the Industries. But' there Is good .reason to believe that building will,,-improve In 1930 if credit conditions remain as they are now since the market cr'ash. The materials to' suffei' most have /^een brick, 'cement and lumber, all iffected by the competition of other lines invited into being by the bad post-war practices of these industries. Paint and specialty manufacturers have done well. .(Copyright, 1049, bj 1 U. P.-C. News Service, Inc.) WIM, ATTEND CONGRESS. Superintendents R. E. Laramy of the city schools, M.

JERSEY SHORE, Nov. 4.—Perpetual care for the historic "Independence Elm," which stands on the west side of Pine creek, in Clinton county, not far from Jersey Shore, has been arranged by the Clinton County Historical society of Lock Haven and the Fort Antes chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, at Jersey Shore. The elm fiTbelleved to be more than four centuries old. It takes Its name frbm the fact that a small group of men assembled under its branches on July 4, 1778, to declare themselves Independent of Great Britain. The Pine Creek declaration occurred purely by coincidence on the day on which the Continental congress issued its famous manlfeston. The original copy of the Pine Creek document was lost In 1779 when all the white people living in the West Branch valley of the Susquehanna ftefe forced to flee to Sunbury to eSeApe the advancing Indians who raided the valley. The land lying between Tiadaghton and Lycomlng cracks was claimed by the Indians after the sons of William Penn had bought the territory included in the province of Pennsylvania from the fed inen at Fort Slahwl*, N. Y in 1768. The native claiA ofi this bo8y of land was not given uft till 1784. in the meantime the feglSH was known as the Indian lands. Settlers were notified not to locate there, but many disregarded the warning oft account of the fertility of the soil.
