Proposed hotel buildings looked over by civic property committe. Property committee of the city council, under Ald. Beamish, accompanied by Building Commissioner Gillies and Fire Chief Sinclair, looked over these buildings to-day to judge at first hand their suitability and safety as beverage-room sites. In each case approval was sought for alternations necessary to turn the properties --all of brick, three-storeys in height -- into standard hotels.
