FEW PERMITS
ARE ASKED FOR
BTAONANT CONDITION OF
BUILDING INDUSTRY.
Although Juno Was a Bad Month,
Superintendent of Building In
spection F. ,li. Brown Says That
July Is Worse Permits Were
Granted for New Buildings, Valued
at Only $57,000 More Than Twice
That Amount of Business Is Usual
ly Done.
The stagnant condition of local build
ing operations continues nnd Superin
tendent of Building Inspection P. t.
Brown, yesterday disgustedly remark
ed that July hud proved even a worse
month thnn June. The latter was one
of tho worst months of the year, the
volume of business done being only a
third that of May. Mr. Brown declares
that the paralyzed condition of tho
building Industry, locally Is largely tho
result of the strike. Said he:
"This is just tho time of tho year,
when there's usually a big boom In
building operations, and its discourag
ing to say the least to look at the rec
ords of the last two months. We ought
to bo issuing permits for tho erection
of buildings, whoso value would aggre
gate between two and three hundred
.thousand dollars. Instead, we grantod
permits this month for new buildings
or additions to structures, the total
valuation of which Is about $57,000.
This month's figures of $160,501 look
big compared to last month's total of
$85,566, but they ore really worse, be
cause two-thirds of that sum represents
the value of buildings which are being
torn down.
"There is one big Item there alone,
of $103,500, which Is tho vuluation of
the eight buildings torn down by the
Lackawanna, Iron and Steel company
In South Scranton. Last July wasn't
considered a particularly big month,
hut records show that there was busi
ness, amounting to $143,000. In May of
this year we had a fine record, inas
much as $249,893 worth of permits was
granted."
Among tho Items In July's list of per
mits was one for $400 granted the
Scranton Pump company for the build
ing of temporary work shops to take
the place of their shops which were
destroyed July 2, by fire. Other tem
porary structures for which permits
were granted, were the booths valued
at $600, erected at the Elks' carnival.
The complete list of permits for July
is as follows:

COLES FOHI AUGUST.
From Storms and Signs.
Tho smiles of God will bless us,
And joy the world shall light;
For we ore battling bravely
For virtue, truth and right.
Tho month of August Is ushered In
with new moon on the 3rd Inst., and full
moon on tho 19th Inst., with earth pass
ing through sign Aquarius, "Houso of
Fortune," opposed by tho "Houso of
Death."
Last month the evil forces showed their
strength nnd overpowered tho good, and
kept prosperity from coming In, This
month tho good nnd evil forces will bo
almost equally bnlanccd, and there will
bo a fierce struggle between them for su
premacy. While people in some localities
are favored with plenty of this world's
goods, others will bo In riot, starvation
and death.
Tho first few days of the month will
cause people to feel depressed. Brace up,
do not lot tho low ebb vital forces over
power you. The henlth of th people In
general will not be tho best nnd tho death
rate will be far above tho average.
All those who aro troubled with heart
disease or in a "run-down" condition
should not exert themselves during the
low ebb days. Trouble unexpected, of an
Intricate nature, may spring up in the
old country. Accidents on land and
water will bo severe nnd fatal. The stock
markets will be unsteady and speculators
will do well to keep wide-awake.
Tho cxtremo heat, followed by cold
waves, tho destructive storms, cloud
bursts, etc., that wo predicted last month
came only too true. August promises a
continuation of extreme heat, which will
ho nlmost unbearable In some cities, fol
lowed with sudden drops in temperature
afterwards to cool waves. New moon, the
3id, will In all probability, bo followed by
forcible storms. On or nbout tho 19th,
Earth, Venus and Mercury periods will
combine their forces with Mars; there
fore, wc may expect some very great
disturbances during the latter part of tho
month. From tho 26th to the last of tho
mohth. Moon will be In apogee and last
quarter. Threatening clouds, accom
panied with thunder, will visit many sec
tions, while heavy downpour of rain will
be showered upon other localities.
Watch out for dangerous equatorial
hurricanes and cyclones that may sweep
tho Gulf and sea coasts the last of the
month.
As a rule, If August proves exceptional
ly warm, free from thunder nnd light
ning, earthquakes aro liable to occur in
many sections. Watch out for tho many
sunset and sunrise scenes that will be
presented to view.
VALUABLE INFORMATION.
Tho best days for fishing will he the
2nd. 7th, 9th. 13th. 20th, 21st and 23th. Al
ways bleed the fish ns soon as taken from
the water, as the blood Is very poisonous
to all persons born In tho samo sign in
which tho fish nre caught.
The 2nd, 11th, 15th, 20th, 23th and 2Sth
will be the best days to sow all kinds of
grain seed; and the next best dnys will
be tho 1st, 9th, lGth. 21st and 29th. The
September issue of Storms nnd Signs will
give the best days to sow winter grain.
The 7th, 15th and 23th will be excellent
days to sow corn for fodder, as it will
grow rapidly and produco a strong
growth.
This is tho month to destroy noxious
weeds, such as thistle, briar, plantain
leaf, etc. For the proper days to do this
work see August number of Storms and
Signs. It will also give full information
in regard to sowing, reaping, and all such
work. Prof. C. Coles, Storms and Signs,

THE MARKETS
Wall Street Reriatr.
Now York, July 31. Thcro was such a
turmoil In tho opening stock mnrket to
day ns to upset the speculative sontlment
and illRiippolut tho hopes of a renewal of
a consistent upward movoment of prices,
which had been Indulged as a result of
yesterdays development of fresh tallrond
denls. Probably tho feverish upward
dash of St. Louis and Bun Francisco,
Kvuiih villa and Tcrre Haute, Now York
Air Hialto and a few other stocks would
havo been sufficient In themselves to have
disturbed sentiment. Hut whon thcro
was added tho downward pitmen of over
eight points In Coloiado Fuel and a
sharp declluo In I'enplo's Gas. the up
ward coui'ho of prices with which tho
market opened quickly gavo place to re
alizing. St. Paul's opening tiso ot over
ii point was lost within n few minutes
of trading. St. Louis and San Francis
co sagged back to below last night s
(luring tho course of tho forenoon. A
few scattered ndvnnces nt different times
during tho day proved Ineffectual to
rouso tho market to activity. Chicago
and Alton and Chicago Terminal trans
fer advanced In company on mysterious
hints of coming Important developments.
Tho ilso In Reading seemed to bo based
upon tho assumption that tho rioting In
tho mine regions nnd tho calling out of
tho trnopi foreshadowed tho break up of
tho strike.
It Is a matter of public notoriety thnt
Illinois Central has recently made an of
fer designed to ceuro control of Chicago
nnd Eastern Illinois. The ndvnnco In St.
Louis and San Frnnclsco for tho past
week has been on tho assumption that "It
was tlm important system pointed at
as dottlncd for Inclusion In tho new
Rock Island company. The market closed
quite nctlvo and wenk. prices running
off sharply Just at tho last. Total sales
today, 307,000 shares.
Bonds were very Inegulnr nnd In
clined to bo ensler In the morning. Tho
St. Louis Southwestern seconds were In
largo demand. Total sales, par value,
KMdl.000. rutted States bonds were un
changed on tho last call.

Chicago, July 31. July comers wero

excitement savo that Influenced by tho
Injunction against a corner In July stand
aril oats, tho manipulated dcnls died In
tho arrangements of their projectors.
July wheat cut tho most spectacular fig
uro by slumping nlmost lie. Tho July
corn corner faded Into 'history with tho
closing prlco 24c. lower than when tho
Gates crowd wom In control. July onts,
although controlled absolutely by tho
Pattrn-Frazlcr crowd, closed unovcntful
ly, doubtlessly held down by tho font- of
tho court when tho Injunction caso comes
up to bo settled. With manipulation
largely out of tho way. other options In
grains felt tho beailsh effect ot big ship
ments to mnrket, lower " cables, lino
weather and heavy sales and consistently
declined all around. At tho close, July
wheat was 5c. lower; September wheat,
