A number of Omaha men have watched
the development In the Bulldurs Ex

clerk answers the telephone for all the
tenants. One main . telephone branch la
insulted, and In this manner the rent Is
teduced to Individuals and the office
problem is solved.
Very often a young attorney or the be
ginner tn the real estate and Insurance
business finds himself able to pay a nice
rent for an office, yet Is unable to maln

HASKINS BROS. BUILD
ADDITION TO FACTORY
A new building. 44 by lie. In to be
erected for the Hasklna Bros. op com
pany at Second and Hickory streets. It
Is to have two stories and basement.
This will practically double the capacity
of the present plant at that place. The
building permit eaila for a $6,000 struc
ture. A. O. Borchmaa la the contractor.
The value of the permits taken out for
new construction during May approxi
mates closer the total of the correspond
ing period In 1914 than that of any pre
ceding month this year, amounting;, ac
cording to reports received by Dunn's Re
view from the building departments ot
elrrhty-two leading cities in the United
States, to $78,738,163, as against rt.t87.22S,
a decrease of only t per cent To quite a
material extent tbia unusually satisfac
tory exhibit is accountedfefor by the auh
sttntial gain at New York, that city re
porting permits granted calling for the
expenditure of $23,667,130, a gain ot 64
per cent over the $14,881,469 of the same
month last year. The Borough of Man
hattan makes a decidedly favorable com
parison with a year ago, with $i3fM,6X,
against $7,066,900, although $10,000,000 of
this amount Is represented by a single
permit for a new municipal building, and
the Bronx, with $4,634,950, against $L7,4U,
also makes an exceptionally encouraging
showing. In the boroughs of Brooklyn,
Queens and Richmond, however, there Is
some contraction. Taken as a whole, the
cities outside New York again make
somewhat Indifferent returns, the total
at eighty-one points, $50,071,043, being 16.
per cent smaller than In May, 1914, when
the aggregate reached $je,506.7D8. How
ever, indications of Improvement are not
entirely absent, inasmuch as repoits of
Increase at twenty-nine centers point to
reviving activity. Among the most nota
ble gains are: Chicago, $9S2,860; Cleve
land. $2,960,089; Hartford, $261,441; Jersey
City. $138,571; Newark. $162,467; El Paao,
$322.90!. and Uprlngflcld. Mass., $16i.201
On the other hand, sharp contraction
appears at numerous points, those most
pronounced being Baltimore, Detroit, In
dianapolis. Kansss City, Los Angeles,
Minneapolis. Philadelphia, Pittsburgh,
Pcrtland, Ore.; Rochester, St Louis, Bt.
