posed of at auction by Judgo Lanham.
There was a good attendauce of bidders,
but tho bidding was hardly so spirited
as it was last year, and the amount
realized was less thau the total then
realized. Early In the proceedings It
became evident that there was a combin
ation among the saloon-keepers not to go
beyond $150 per booth, hi view of this,
President Green authorized the with
drawal of seventeen booths from the
sale, and the announcement was made
that tho booths 60 withdrawn would be
lot by private contract at 8200 each.
Up to last niht three of the booths
had been let at that price, making the
total number ot booths disposed of
seventy-seven, and tho amount realized
810,300. Iu case the reraaing fourteen
booths are let at $200 each as they un
doubtedly will be the total sum realized
from the renting of tho booths will be $22,
100 as compared with $21,445 realized last
year. This failing off is stated by Secre
tary Wado to be due to the fact that there
Was an unusual demand for the booths
last year, and high prices were con
sequently reaped, but as tho weather

rial falling off in receipts, tho bidders
were more cautious" on this occasion.
