Mr. R. E. Pox, Jr., has resigned the management of the Ncw
York offlee of the Platt Iron Works Co. to become manager and
secretary of the Bngineer Co., 111 Broadway.
A man wants a position as agent, salary and coramission
basis, to represent a manufacturer of high standing. He is
well acquainted with the members of the leaûing architectural
firms and the purchasing agents of railroads having headquar-
ters in New York and vicinity, See Wants and Offers.
A new incorporated company organîaed for the supply of
structural and ornamental iron work for buildings is the
■'Kniclíerbocker Iron Works," with plant at 234 East 20th st.
The company wiU make a specialty of apartment house and
alteration worlí, guaranteeing material and workmanship. Mr.
Max Liebeskind, forraerly a builder, is president.
W. R. Creed, the wholesale luraber dealer, disclaims being
pessimistic, but simply feeĩs that good business precautions
would seem to indicate that a little care would not hurt any-
body or anything, but would be an anchor to windward, as it
were, and on the safe sĩde of things; and while he looks for
things to be a little easier and for some relaxation, as it were,
he is not flgurĩng that there-is to be any slump.
Plans have just been approved and the architects. Messrs.
NevîIIe & Bagge. 217 West 125th st. state that building opera-
tions will be commenced at once for the G-sty stable structure.
100x80 ft., which Daily & Carlson, 694 Bast 13Gth st, owners
and general eontractors, will erect on the west side o£ Park av,
51.1 ft. north of 84th st, at a cost of $100.000. The site has
been excavated; tlie plans were flled last March.
Mr. C O. Shepherd, of the Emporium Lumber Company. is an
optimist on the business situation. Currently he indicates that
things are quiet, with no particular inciuiry, but he noticcs that
when a man wants something he wants it quick and pays the
price. His concern has no burden of heavy stocks, so the con-
ditions suit, and he believes others are in the sarae fix.
It is his opinion tliat any considerable stocks of oak and poplar
cannot be bought lower than sixty to ninety days ago.
Another large ofHce building for which flgures will soon be
recéived is tlie new structure to be known as the Knickerbocker
Euilding, to be erected on the site of tbe Consolidated Exchange
Building, at Ihe northeast corner of Eroadway and Excliange
pl. Messrs. McKim, Mead & White, 160 ãth av, are making the-
plans. The Knickerboclĩer Co. paid for the site. which con-
tains 8,371 sq. ft., about $200 a square foot, or $1,700,000, Chas,
T. Barney is president of the company. (See issue Sept. 22,
Rukenbrod &. Burrell, manufacturers oí. standard flreproof
doors, sash and metal-drawn mouldings, also specialists in
bronze, copper and lîalaraein work for buildings, have an ex-
tensive plant at 40 Hall Pt. Brooklyn, and eraploy a large force
of competent workmen. Their present contracts include bronze
and kalamein doors for the 12-sty apartraent house at Central
Park West and 85th st, for the Gotham EuUding and Con-
struction Co., Mulliken & Moeller, architects; kalamein elevator
doors and windows for the 12-sty loft building, 28 East lOth st.
for the B. J. Galway Building Co., Geo. H. Anderson, architect,
and kalamein doors and windows for the 7-sty loft building
northwest corner Macdougal and Vandam sts for the McCotter
Construction Co., C. Abbott French, architect. The firm will
be pleased to furnish estimates for their class of work, and all
communieations will receive prorapt attention.
Points on the Material Market.
Hudson River common brick are quoted several points lower
North Carolina pine in the local raarket has been and stiil
White pine is steady !n price and is moving freely, particularly
in the lower grades. Stocks at Eastern distributing points are
reported light, while the miU position is very strong, with
stock well in hand.
The steel corapanies report a falling off in new busincss, par-
ticularly for rails, corapared with 1906, which is not remark-
abĩe, considering the immensity of orders last year culminating
after the depression of 1903-4,
Mr. George M. Stevens, Jr., of Stevens-Eaton Company, 1
Madison av, says that he cannot report any dullness in the
wliolesale lumber trade. Inside of sixty days he thinks buyers
wUI be rushing to get lumber.
A local lumberman classes the period from June 25 to July 15
as the duUest season in all ílie year, în all years, at Eastern
consuming centres. Certainly it has been -hot enough to burn
all thoughts of business frora one's raind.
Instead of any sign of a general reaction, the average busi-
ness man you raeet assures you that while there may be dull
spots here and there, the building trades on fhe whole are more
optiraistic than at any previous time this season.
