The laying of steel has already begun and it Is expected that the steel frame' will rise In the near future. More than $400,000 is being expended fori structural steel. The Capwell ' executives awarded this contract, comprising 5000 tons and the largest contract for struo-' tural .steel ever let In Oakrand, to the Judson-Paclflo company, a local concern. This Is a departure from the usual method of sending large steel fabrication contracts back to eastern mills. The new store, which will be oc cupied by Capwell's in August, 1 929, will be the largest department store In the west. As a sign of their be lief In the destiny of Oakland to be come a great metropolitan city in the future, the store executives have expended considerable addl tlonal money in providing excep tionally strong foundations. It is contemplated that in the future the new store will be built to twelve stories in height, -this ranking with Marshall Field in Chicago and Wanamaker'a in New York and Philadelphia, and making It one of the largest department stores In the world.

Grubb will bring the total Investment in homes for that community up to $160,000, according to the Fred T. Wood company, subdlvidera of that property. These two homes are the first unit of a group of ten planned by Grubb, who is said to have selected Durant Manor because of his confidence In the Fred T, Wood method of development. Durant Manor is already well developed, following the policy of the Fred T. Wood company of proceeding, early In the history of Its tracts to put In complete improvements. Street paving In Durant Manor represents an Investment of $82,000, It Is stated, with a further outlay for sidewalks, sewers and other improvements. The location of Durant Manor has been a big factor In Its rapid development, officials of the Wood company point out. It lies between East Fourteenth street and Hollywood boulevard on Durant avenue In a district which is growing rapidly In residences as a result of its strategic position with reference to the Durant, Star, Fageol, Chevrolet and Caterpillar factories. Thousands of dollars are put in circulation each week from the payrolls of these and other plants, and the result has proved beneficial to that part of town.

It would seem as if this sign had been hung out oy local ousmess tne past two weeks. This Brw! s e ason ot the year, it is true, is usually vacation timer It would be difficult to prove that t h e- 'ufiuaLf", number of people are out' 'of town. Apparently, however, the fact that the schools will open some what earlier than usual this year has resulted in a great many hahry. Harding. people who ordinarily take their vacation in August, changing their period to this month. This situation, probably more than any other reason, accounts for the dullness that has prevailed in the local retail trade. Notwlthstand-vlgorous efforts made to equal last year's sales figures, the department stores and houe furnishing stores report that the public responso has been rather listless. It is probable that with the greater efforts nec-es- lo. t W -'Jf sary to maintain volume, most of the stores are finding difficulty In keeping profits up to standard. a a a Industry continues to be the bright spot in our local situation. We heard early in the year some talk about over-production and keener competition, which might unfavorably affect industry nation ally. But, Just as a great many of the national organization have been reporting a prosperous period for the first six months of the year. so many of our local industries have been reporting Increases In volume, with orders on hand that augur well for the next few months. As a result of Industrial activity, the unemployment situation an far as Oakland Is concerned, has stead lly improved except in the con struction field, in which there are still quite a few idle. The proposed agreement between the peach growers and the runners Is of real Interest to this territory, because of the many fruit packing plants located in Alameda county. While the decision to pack only the finer grades ot fruit will naturally restrict the total pack, nevertheless the estimated park of 13.000.000 cases would Indlrale that the local canneries for the next few months will be operating well up to capacity and keep nctlvely employed a great number of people. o o o A very Interesting shift In Oak land bank deposits is revealed by the June 30 statements. Total deposits ax of June 30, 1928, for thel city of Oakland amount to $189,- 'SSs' LOANS UP OF VALUE. per cent 3 $188,619,945.15. The gain, small; as it is, ia better than, expected in; most quarters. Savings deposits, however, drqj)ped in this period from 130, 3S1, 089. 53 to $128,900,-059.81, notwithstanding the fact that the interest credited to re- . positors' accounts approximated $2,000,000. In a period of active home building, sayingj deposits are often reduced through investments in real estate, but as we all know, there has been no great activity in real estate the first half of this year. Nor have we had any business depression. A probable answer is in the fact that during the early part ' of this year eo many people who never before purchased securities, withdrew their savings balance for investments of this nature. For the week ending July 18, the -Oakland clearing house reported bank transactions of $62,027,058 and for the same period of last year $58,058,347. For the same week bank debits aggregated $54,835,-7fl(l as in comparison with $49,203.-416 for the year previous. Clearings likewise continued to show a gain and for the week amounted to $19,-859,916 as against $17,810,180 for the eame week of 1927. una Although there seems to be greater Interest in real estate lately, ac- ' coraing to prominent realtors, this Interest has not as yet crystallized in actual transactions. During the period from July 1 to July 23 this year, the trust deeds and mortgages numbered 1227 as compared with 1 430-for the same periqd last year. The value ot trust deeds and mortgages recorded amounted to $7. 196.382, whereas in the first, twenty-three daya of July, 1927, these totaled $7, 905348. Reconveyances' reported in this time numbered 12U nnri fni lnaf Venn iT.1i:7 A number of leading architects report their offices are very busy with plans for new constructions. some of which already have been announced and on which work i expected to begin shortly and also on prospects that as yet have not been announced. Froth these Indications we might expect as the year advances greater activity than now prevails In the building industry. The construction of homes has been lagging in recent months and whether any Improvement In this field will be sufficient to result In a -total volume materially in excess of last year's figures is problematical. . - If the building permits for July nre to show a gain over the figures for July of iast yearnsome very -large permits will have tq be filled the Inst few days of the month. For the period up to and Including July 23, 388 permits were issued in the aity of Oakland, representing a value of $1,137,638. For thVflflre. month of last year 550 permits were issued, with a total value Of $1,-868.271.
