IN REAL ESTATE.
Another Good Washington Avenue
FAIR SHOWING OF SALES.
Doings, in East St. Louis Kealty
Xoies Transfers for
Of the several substantial sales known to
bo almost completed, not one was nctually
closed during the week, but one Important
transaction, a long term lease of the Mer
cantile Trust Company, reached maturity.
The.stately building recently erected by tha
Eleventh Street Realty Company at the
northeast corner of Eleventh street and
Washington avenue, has quickly secured a
first-class tenant. The structure, which cov
ers a lot GO.xl30.and has seven stories, with
basement, is to be occupied for a term of
years by the liew La Prelle-Wllliams Shoo
Company. St. Louis is rapidly distancing
all other cities as the shoe center of Amer--lea.
and the opening up of another mam
moth concern with largo capital is dis
tinctly gratifying. The building thus leased
was owned by a syndicate composed of C.
F. Gauss. Former Governor D. R. Francis.
John S. Sullivan. F. C. Maflltt. F.-J. Wade
and L. E. Anderson. About a year ago tho
lot wa purchased from the Lindell estate
through Judge Wilbur F. Boyle, and the
Eleventh Street Realty Company was
formed to erect the building. No tenant was
in sight, but the members of the syndicate
and of the Anderson-Wade Realty Company
(now the Mercantile Trust Company), who
organized It. had Implicit confidence that
one would be forthcoming. This confidence
they proceeded to evince by building one
of the largest, handsomest and best ap
pointed wholesalo stores In the city. That
their judgment was correct, the present
lease so soon after the completion of the
building conclusively shows. The lease,
moreover, is to a new concern, and does
not, as is sometimes the case, leave a big
vacancy behind it.
During the month of July hV, transfers
were made at the Recorder's office, the to
tal considerations being S1.301.S4G.
For the six days ending Friday evening
the showing was lit deeds, transf erring
rtalty valued at J.72.5TS.
During the month of July new buildings
and alterations to the value of $411,7-7 were
authorized by permits from the Building
Activity in Knst St. I.nuin.
Tho J. T. Donovan Real Estate Com
pany vesterday closed the sale to tho Geo.
S. Meiiham & Klein Color Manufacturing

CascyviHo road between the Air Line Belt
road and the new Illinois Transfer Rail
road, In East St. Louis. Price. JS.00Q. The
purchasers will erect a factory with new
appliances, givinir employment to over 103
The property thus sold Is part of the
Lansdowne subdivision, laid out by the J.
T. Donovan company as an exclusive resi
dence addition. At one time it was thought
the people of East St. Louis would secure
tlie tract for a public park, but, owing to
tho lack of concerted action, the movement
failed. One hundred and fifty acres still
remain available for such purpose.
The western portion of Lansdowne has
been thoroughly sewered and granitoid side
walks have been laid on Thirteenth and
Monroe streets. Among recent purchasers
of lots are William C. Carl, T. Arthur

It seems that a sinister fate, often re

Tho most recent victim was the man who
was killed Friday night by a car on tho
Midland division of tho transit company's

SAVED THE LIVES
OF THREE BOYS.
Courageous Foaf rorfonuod by Jo
seph M. Steis at the Lake
in Forest Park.
ATTRACTED BY THEIR CRIES;
riucccl His Fair Companion on
Shore, Then Kowetl to I ho Kes
cue Lads Departed With
out Giving Sanies.
Three small boys were nearly drowned in
Forest Park Lake Thursday night, nnd owe
their escape to the presence of mind ana
prompt action of Joseph M. Stcis, who is
connected with a large dry goods company.
Mr. Steis was rowing on tho lake, ac
companied by Miss Lotta McFarland of No.
5136 Ridge avenue. About 9 o'clock they
were startled by ecrcams for help which
canle from tho upper end of the lake. As
soon as Mr. Stcis realized that some one was
in distress he rowed around tho island, in
tho direction whence the cries came. It
was quite dark, but he was able to see
an upturned bodt and three boys struggling
in the water.
The lako at that point Is about eight feet
deep, and to avoid another accident, Mr.
Stcis rowed to the .ihore to permit his com
panion to alight before ho undertook to
rescue the boys.
None of the youths could swim, but one
had succccdrd in catching the overturned
boat. Another had stuck an oar in tho
mud at the bottom of tho lako in such a
manner that ho was able by holding on to
the end of the oar, to keep his nose abovo
water. The third, however, had almost
become exhausted by ills efforts to kesp
his head abovo water, and was sinking
for the third time, when Mr. Steis reached
htm and pulled him into the hont.
While Mr. Steis was rescuing the boy wtlh
the oar, a stranger rowed up and assisted
him In getting the third youth out of tho
water. Tho tlirco boys who wero evidently
between 13 nnd 15 years old, wero thorough
ly frightened, but beyond a thorough soak
ing were none the worse for their perilous
adventure. When taken to tho shore, they
scampered away without giving their
Mr. Stela modestly refrulned from tcllins
his associates of the rescue, but tho youn,r
lady could not resist telling of his bravery
and when the employes at the store heard
the story he was tho recipient of many con
gratulations. DOES THE MAYOR OBJECT?
Cut in His Contingent Fund Is lie
ported Not Palatable.
An Interesting story is whispered about
the City Hall explaining the delay of tha
Ways and Means Committee of the House
ot Delegates in reporting tho appropriation
Rumor insinuates that there is a secret
fear among tho committeemen that Mayor
Zlcgenheln will not admire the character of
tho bill If it comes to him with the paltry
sum of $1,500 marked opposite "Mayor's con
tingent fund," and they prefer to hasten
slowly and make a careful survey In order
not to incur his displeasure.
Neither Mayor Zlegenhein nor Fred Zie
genhein, nor any emissary of the Mayor,
presented the Mayor's plaint to the Coun
cil Committee, but the ear-to-ear conversa
tion between Fred Zlegenhein and a mem
ber of tho House committee the day after
tho bill passed the Council Is considered
somewhat indicative that the Mayor has
some sort of a grievance perhaps the re
duction of the contingent fund from '12,500
Nobody spoko very loud yesterday In tho
City Hall, but an unusual degree of private
thinking and lonely meditution was appa
rent. Somo officials soliloquized In under
tones and to themselves related the alleged
dread ot tho Mayor's suppressed anger.. Oc
casionally some bold employe, whose vaca
tion Is nigh and whoso funds arc ebbing
rapidly In paying board bills, dared to
breathe his thoughts.

Commission will hold .an examination at

Graphic Letter From the Fir
ing Line What the War
Means to the Soldier.
Harvey W. Ferguson, formerly a St. Louis
newspaper man, now a soldier In tha Phil
ippines, writing his parents under the date
of June 16, from Cagayan, Mindanao, Phil
ippine Islands, says:
"I am now In the most dangerous placo
in tho Philippines, whore tho insurrection la
not over, and where we can see no prospects
of Its suppression or voluntary ending. I
reached here June 2, after a long and tedi
ous journey on board a small steamer
around hundreds of small islands of this
group. The placo was a surprise to mc, an
unpleasant one, too. It la no resting place;
rather a hotbed of rebellion, uprisings in
the darkness of night, constant watchful
ness, nnd with only a handful of tired,
worn out, sick American soldiers to defend
the town against the attacks of Insurgents.
"Two companies, that is, what remains of
them, aro stationed here. The men are ex
hausted by sleeplessness, duty, expectancy
and long marches. When detachments are
taken from companies, or when a company
Is sent away on a 'hike,' the garrison Is so
weakened that It is dangerous for those re
maining. About 1 o'clock tho morning of
June 14. departments from Companies H,
L and M, numbering about 100 men, wero
sent across the river and over the moun
tains to where the Insurgents were supposed
to be, a distance of ten miles. Two Span
iards guided the party and declare they gave
correct information. Whether they did or
not is now a matter of Investigation. How
ever it may be the result was fatal to the
party. A defeat, the first real one the
Americans have suffered on the island, was
the culmination of the one-sided affray; so
favorable to the enemy that it cannot be
properly called a battle.
"Tho boys were led down a ravine to the
foot of a mountain, upon which the .In
surgents were supposed to be Intrenched.
Another peak rose to the right, leaving a
roadway to the summit. The path wag about
three feet wide, stony and. clear of ene
mies, which was, in Itself, suspicious. So
narrow was the defile that the men were
compelled to walk tn single file, and dense
shrubbery lined and towered above It on
cither side. The 'advance' passed a stone
barrier, and the outlook grew more than
suspicious, there being signs of strong ln
trenchments, but, there being no sound, sus
picions were lulled and the main body fol
lowed the 'advance' into the lnclosure.
"Suddenly a galling tire was poured In
upon them. The men tried to push forward,
but could do nothing in single Hie in such
a death trap. The order for retreat was
given, but when the 'advance' tried to es
cape, their only avenue had been cut off.
The main body succeeded, after desperate
fighting and superhuman efforts. In getting
out. Those of the 'advance" who were yet
allvo dropped behind rocks and other shel
ter and fought for life, but they aimed at
an unseen enemy. Several of 'advance suc
ceeded In escaping after a time, But an
old sergeant refused to come because he
was protecting a wounded man. Nine Amer
cans lay dead In tho path, and seven of
the wounded escaped, among these one offi
cer, Captain Miller. Sergeant Northcross and
four men are still missing. ,

the Captain on a, litter, and tha whole com
mand prepared to return to Cagayan. Just
as wo were preparing to march three men
staggered into camp, one shot through tho
shoulder and another with a spear wound
through the thigh. A detail was sent back
in search of Sergeant Northcross. but failed
to find him.
"The return march I shall never forget.
W e could scarcely drag ourselves along, and
were without a drop of water. When wo
reached the top of the big mountain near
the garrison the wounded men had to be car
ried in litters by tho men, who could scarce
ly drag their own weight along the trail.
When we reached the river, the men threw
themselves on tho bank and drank as much
as they could hold. We reached camp, to
find that, a small patrol had been sent to
the ocean dock, several miles away. On tho
way they were attacked by bormen, and
two of our men wero badly wounded.
"I wish I could describe the terrifying",

alarm. The men rushing over tha bare floors,
down the stairs. peU-mell, and Into the

compared to the rush through tho barracks.
Accidental shots and false and real alarms
keep the men turning out every night. Men
who welshed ISO pounds at enlistment do
not weigh 120 now.
"The scenes which I have described cover
a period of only four days, and do not tell
you half what takes place night .and day.
We received the news that Sergeant North
cross had escaped, and while on his way
to camp was again surprised by the In
surgents and murdered. This country is not
