Bonds for $300,000, to Insure the erection of
a new hotel at the northeast corner of West
Pine boulevard and King's highway were
executed yesterday through the Holbrook
Blackwelder Real Estate Trust Company.
The hotel is to be called the Saxonla.
As stated In The Republic two weeks ago,
the plans for the new hotel contemplate
one of the handsomest structures In Amer
ica. It wlU be nine stories, of brick and
stone, containing about 400 rooms and will

that a prominent brewer is the principal
At the office of Holbrook & Blackwclder
it iras stated vesterdav that certain negotia
tions connected with the Saxonla Hotel ,
caused the name of the bTewer to be with
held. It was also stated that the Saxonla j
has been leased to a prominent hotel man- t

The scheme to build a downtown hotel, to
cost $1,000,000, at the northwest corner of
Pine street and Broadway, is reported to
be rapidly maturing. Otto F. Stllcl is the
principal person interested.
Though the volume of sales was small for
the first week in September, the real estate
agents havo been exceedingly busy. The
large number of Inquiries for both residence
and business property Indicate that the fall
market will open within a fortnight in the
most active manner St Louis has ever
Inquiries for and sales of medium-priced
property are exceptionally numerous. This
fact is accepted as showing not onlv that
more St. Louis persons are In a position to
own their homes, but that manr families
are moving Into the city to reside perma
nently. A large percentage of the pr-perty
sold for speculative purposes recently has
bn purchased by nonresidents.
Realty dealers manifest considerable In
terest in the selection of a slle for a new
Post Office. The impression prevails that a
suitable lot fronting on four streets, as the
Government specifications require, and lo
cated near the Union Station, cannot be
purchased for J200.OJO. as Congress provided.
It Is generally believed that the rresnt
City Hospital site finds most favor with the
Government authorities, but it could not be
gurchaed for $200.0ijO. Tho location, upon a
HI and convenient In all respects, is con
sidered ideal. If Architect Tavlor should
recommend the purchase of this property
Congress would have to amend the act for
the new St. Lcuis Branch Post Office.

Moratcr griffin heads stand boldly out

Ponderous entablatures and a heavy bal

It Is the first suggestion of the majestic
