The tlr-i nn.-tlon rale of property to bo

ntid mil ti offered bj the Whipple l.oan
onil Trti-t Company. The miction will be
In th iiituro of a. "starter," and the lots
will be 'olj absolutely without reserve to
th hlKhpt bidder.
Mr. Whipple Is one of the committee ot
time appointed by the osehange pome
we-iks no to look Into the matter of auc
tions of lealty. nnd he hits come to the
cuniluilon that the only way to Inaugur
ate tho mowincnt Is to olter and to sell.
Ac- orjint,ly, simply by way ot testing the
tal estate market he hits sdt-cted ten fair
pie 'cs of property, a portion Improved and
a portion unlmpioveel, to be fold under the
hatnnn r JK has had a brief notice of
tue .i'V on and Its purpose printed on
postal 1 mis. and before to-morrow even
ing he villi have mailed them to all the
brokers nnd speculators In the city. The
cards bear a gonernl imitation to evcry
ono to attend. Ladies nre CFpecinlly In
ited. Mr. Whipple said jesterduy: "In
the Hast real estate Is told by auction
wry largi ly. Auctions are the rule in the
real estate exchanges of Xt iv York, Uos
ton, Chicago, at. Louis and other large
cities. There is no mure reason why prop
erty should not be fold so than theie Is
that stock, bonds, wheat nnd other com
modities should not be sold by auction.
The members of the csrhange believe that
the time la ripe for Jun such auctions ot
realty. The inquiries uri Ho many nowa
days that we wish to rIc the Inquirers a
fair opportunity to buj. We extend a.
general imitation to eeryone to be pres
ent Ladles ate often the eery best In
vestors In real rrtate, so wi should like
to see many of them there. Thu ten prop
erties which will be oilVied are not high
priced, and nre clear. There Is not one
of the t n which will not yield thu buyer
from 32 to 15 per cent on hi-. Investment.
f the tal" Is even modirately Miceosslul
we shall hold weekly auctions. Inasmuch
us the matter Is not altogether uniletstood
we shall pell all of the pieces cpiite low as
in experiment. J spoke of numerous in
quiries, fc'o far as we nrf concerned wo
hae hnd more Inquiries after all sorts of
realty durlriir the week than we hae bad
since 1Vi We have had more people In
this ollVe than wo could look after,
some thine; that has not been the case in
sen en yean.' time."
James II. Welsh, of the firm of Crateher
fc Wel'h, paid: "The demand for houses
' Is greater than It has been In a very Ions
time I am certain that If someone should
put up fifty stood houses they would all be
sold In a shoit time, l'eoplc want homes
and they want them badly. The lesult is
that there i not a little looking for de
urable lots upon which. to build. Many of
the persons we have sold to In the last
lew weeks bought beciuse they wish to
build We shall hae more building this
season than we have seen In many a dav."
John W Huh. of Hush Bros., said: "The
nqmry after property lb surely on the ln
irease I cannot sec why more buying Is
not done Prices were never lower nor
good pieces of Improved unincumbered
property more easily obtainable than now.
Hut htiyers seem to be very cautious nr
fa'tldlous or something of the sort. They
appear to be looking for snaps, when
iieirs are on the market every day.
S'f'l I be liee that the market will Improve
i s -prion and that we shall see a gen
crn, it tmt a (Treat, revival."

Strenuous efforts were being made Inst
night to secuic the release of Chatl.s
Wilson the North end gambler and elec
tion worker, who is now being held at the
Cential police station to await the arrival
ot olllcers lrom Little Itock, Ark., who
charge him with having held up a street
car in that city In February and robbing
the passengers of tin Ir waiehes and other
valuables. Wilson's trlends make the el ilm
that be Is innocent and exptcss feats that
his trial at Little Hock might not bo a
fair one. An application via-- made- ln-toie
Judge W'ortord lor a writ of habeas corpus
end notice was served on the police Jast
night to appear before Judge Woilord Mon
day morning nnd show cause why Wilson
should not be released. Attorney James
Cole and others are Interested In tho case.
Hilling 111 a Conte-t Case,
Judge Slover jesterdav In chambers lis
tened to arguments of counsel In the
Sloan-Keshleur election contest upon the
Joint request ot Hecorder Arnold and
County Clerk Crittenden for a ruling upon
several points which have been In contto
versy, it appears, within the secret pre
einets of tho recount room. The patties
to the contest, it appears, have been hiv
ing a dispute ove-r the right of the defend
ant to delay tho recount by removing tho
same objection,-, .? every ballot and of de
mandlne .l.at a companssi. of each ballot
wlfv tne tally sheet and regisi..-.""."-. 11."
bo made nnd that each ballot httvo a sep
arate certHlcate with ach ballot that It Is
printed according to the n-gulatlon fotm,
Judge Slover held that if the defendant
hail a mind to renew his formalities with
i ach ballot he had a right to tlo so, ei en
though It should delay the ptoecedlngs, in
delinltely. He said that all this trouble
could be walveel if the parties would do so.
The olllclals further asked for a ruling
upon the point as to whether they had a
right to ollovv the parties to make ptlvato
mi moranela ot the re-count. Judge Sloie-r
also ruled that any facts appearing In the
course of the recount not provided for in
the law It would bo perfectly proper for
them to inakn official note of It in their ree
ord to report to the court especially If It
affected ill any manner tho result of tho
Case Jl list Ho Tried.
Judgo Slover yesterday overruled the de
murrer of Jackson county In the case of
J. W. McCurdy and J. D. Eubanks against
nilhu W. Hayes and Jackson county lot
toes. The fees claimed were for work done
in the office of the late County Clerk M. S
Hurr upon the delinquent tax bookfi ol
18'U. The plaintiffs were then deputies of
County Collector Haves and they worked
nights upon the delinquent tax books tran
scripts, when It was unelerstood that they
were to get their pay from the fees of the
county clerk if allowed for this work. It
afterward transpired that although Clerk
Hurr had collected tliei fe.-s the county
smld he had no right to them. He refused to
aekuuivle lge the claim of the county, but
left the lounty to pay tho help on tho
either hand. Tills the county eoutt refused
to do and hence the bult, with the oountv
colle-ctor named as a party defendant. The
county demurred to the petition, but Judge
Slover ruled that the case would have to
be tried before the court would be Jus
tilled In pa-slutr upon Ub merits.

The city counselor hold that as Mr.
Snyder was not engaged or engaging in
tho cas business under any other ordi
nance or franchise, the assignment was
legal and that the consent of the council
did not have to bo asked.
The refusal of the comptroller to ap
provo the bond caused Mr. Snyder a
great deal of uneasiness, and there was
s ime lively skurrying around to Und the
city counselor and straighten the tangle
out. Mr. Snyder said to a Journal rc
porter: "The assignment was made merely as
a matter of convenience, and none of
tho gentlemen who assigned to mo has
withdrawn from tho company anel all

Wo shall proceed at once to organize for
