It is a fair assumption that a modern fireproof every room with bath, with lilo wainscoting in bathrooms, circulating Ice- water In each room, and tho hotel properly equipped i" every way. cannot bo built at present for less than per room and it is unite probable that, with the great demand for labor and mater- ial which is promised for the comlug year, the. cost may greatly exceed Payro The payrolls for tho hoiel operator are constantly Increasing and are liable- to be higher than they are to- day, as the scarcity of help coaiuels years. In this assumption ouly the i tho operator, to pay more and more investment in the building la taken j for the same service.

The payroll stimalcs of 70 tents psr room per [ay, as shovrn iu tho abovo tuble, Is vhat it actually cost durlns the past to operate a threo liuudred room lotel in one of tho larger cities and Is quito probable ttial there aro many Smaller cities this cost seventy cents per day per room can te reduced to fifty cents per day per com. or even lower, on account of avorablo local conditions. MsTntenance of Building some time after a new fireproof hotel is erected the cost of maintain- the building is a very small item but it must be remembered lhat modern hotel Is a very complicated structure, full of pipes mechanical equipment, and it is only a matter if time when these will out find unit be replaced. An estimate ot ten cents per day. or thirty-six dollars jer year, per room for a maintenance 'untl to keep tlie building in proper condition has been found by experi- :nco to ba ample, providing the build- ug is well constructed ivhen it Is :irst built. Maintenance and Depreciation of Furniture What it costs io repair and replaca furniture is a variable item, tie pending entirely on the quality of tho furniture which the operator ;buys when -he opens the" hotel. The initia investment for furniture .may vary as much as one hundred per ceni., bu for the purpose of this article, it- is assumed that it costs approximately J540.00 to -furnish each room aud the corridor .adjoining. This estimate, o course. does not include any allowance for furniture In tbe lobby, dinini rooms, kitchen, or other public! space of the hotel. Estimates of a number ot botel managers shows that the average life of hotePfuruilure is six years, would mean thai if i costs {540.00 per room for the Initia investment, 190.00 ot this investmen must be replaced each. an' f 90.00 per year Is 'twenty-five cents per. day, which the operator must se aside for renewals of 1 addition to tbe above "tbe operate should allow at least five cents' pe day per room for writing off hfs or ginal investment in furnlture'liecaus when his lease expires or the buildin is no longer profilablo as a hotel th value of his furniture, Bold at auctlo: or private sale, will be very smal a proper accounting it is deeme wise to set aalde a certain amoun each year for creating a sinking fun ;hat will reimhbrse him during th life of his lease for his original inves mcnt in the furniture. This five cent ptr day per room, taken with the a lowarice of ten cents -per day-pe room for keeping up the Arnflure and twenty-five cents per day pe room for replacement, means- tha forty cents per day should be charge against each room for malntenanc and depreciation of -furniture. Laundry costs are Increasing alon with all other costs for the hotel op- erator and'th% tea cents per day per room for laundry estimated a year ago has now grown to an estimate of fif- teen cents per day per room. Hotels having their laundry done outside by other people may pay even moro_than fifteen' cents per day per room for laundry, but those [hat operate their own plants have found by experience that at present prices their laundry work for the rooms costs approximate- ly cents per day per room.
