Every week more raqueiu com. la to
the commute, to animate the value of
Tirtou. piece., of property. It la a dlffl
colt work, but the commute, haa become
qulu proficient la It The matter of
placing a price mark on a vacant lot In
any portion of the city Is comparatively
uy for them. Ertlmatlna the value
of bulldlnaa, however, Is another Utm.
At thla, though, the local valuation ex
pert, are not maklna any harder work
than the experts all over the country or
all over the world, are making of It. It
1. a fact wall recognised by real estate
men.- builders and private dealers In
properties, that to estimate the value of
a building one must take In so many
things for consideration that the Intrica
cies of the problem seldom can be fer
reted oit to a solvabla basis or a basis
from which an absolutely correct conclu
sion can be reached.
The price, on building., eld and new.
cannot be accurately placed. If a building
Is brilliantly planned, built well upon a
good site all that can be said of H Is that
It may lncreaw la value. In this esse It
usually Increases In value despite th.
wear and tear of time.
But the fact remains that the majority
of buildings are not so subject to such
commandatloa. Most buildings decline In
value and the natural depredtatloa ta
materially aided by fault, of planning or
construction, or both.
In estimating the value of a building,
the commltte. must tak. Into eon!dera
tlon among the first thing.. It. lighting.
The stupid arrangement of windows la a
building, neeeuitatlng- artificial lights,
always means a demerit mark for that
building. Its value always decline, and.
In the majority of cues, decline, rapidly,
became, tor one reason poor lighting sug
gests poor ventilation and poor ventila
tion poor health.
Another point Is ths penury, or, not to
be so blunt or extravagant, the econom
ical view of the builder. It has been said
that many building, are ao economically
constructed that their value decrease,
until, by the time they are completed,
they are not worth three-fourths of their
Aa most people Jump at the fancies of
dreea, there are aome builders who rush
In with their plans and .pecirieationa to
erect a structure according to the latest
architectural fashion. And like the faacles
of drees, these buildings soon are out of
style. Practical builder, are thoe. who
eaek lo construct aa edifice or house
that will suit the purpose of its tenant
not only tor today, but tor a long time
into the future. -
These are tome of the point, the valua
tion committee of the exchange haa to
oonelder In arriving at a logical price for
a building. One llttl. point that la not so
difficult to aes. Is the question Of loca
tion or site. In building, one should ever
remember that a structure should not be
toe good for Its neighborhood end, on the
ether hand, a neighborhood should not be
too good for the structure, Buch a build
ing alwaya la a losing proportion. -

Union Pacific to
Show Falling Off
in Its Net Revenue
Advance Information Indicates that for
ths fiscal year ending June K, UIX the
Union Pacific will earn 14 per cent tor
in t2lt,4CT.M of common stock, a against
!. per cent for UU. '
It la said that tb falling off in th
percentage of earnings is not due to a
lack of business, but on account of aa
lucre In operating . expenee. For
instance: In Itl, taking ntn month for
comparison, lbs operating ratio per mile
waa aki per cent; the gross earning,
110, 13 and the net. HIM per mile. In
WU the operating ratio Increased to t7.3t
per cent, while the groe earnings fall
to .!. and ths net to (3.041 per mile.
A large portion of the difficulty In
connection with tbe financial condition
la attributed to the March weather and
the floods. For a portion of that month
the Union Pacific', main line Into Omaha
wa out of cemmluion, so that Its trains
had to be routed over other line. Thl.
held back a vast amount of traffic and
materially Increased the cost of handling
that that did get through.
