MINN. THE EFFECT OF THE LOCATION/ OF THE NEW GKAXD HOTEL. Everybody Anxious to Secure Property in Its Vicinity— An Obstacle in the Way of the Completion of the fryndicato Block— A Few Specimen Sales' of the Week— Great Firmness in the Market, The location of the big hotel on the cor ner of Seventh and Robert streets has not yet ceased to affect the market. The effect, however, has been somewhat different from that expected before the location was fully settled upon. The influence of this great transaction, instead of being general and reaching all classes of property, seems to have concentrated the ideas of buyers upon property in the vicinity of the loentioc,and withdrawn attention to a considerable ex tent from outside property. Certain it is that the latter has been neglected through out the week. Of course, there are a good many buyers of lots for homes and imme diate use. What is meant is that the loca tion of the hotel has not caused any special and increased demand for outside prop erty. It is no stronger or more sought after now than it was before the site of the hotel was fixed upon. The location peems to have had no special effect, except to withdraw attention from outside property and concentrate ie on inside real estate. In regard to the property in the vicinicy of the hotel the inquiry and de mand is good. Of course, it naturally could not bo anything else but good. It is even more than this. Everybody sees what an advantage it is going to be to be near the spot where this immense struc ture is to be located. It will, as everyone conceives, create a center of business, and attract people and trade. Naturally everybody feels an anxiety to get into the general whirlpool and secure a location near to the '"big hotel." The result of this is that all real estate men are trying all sorts of devices to get hold of property on adjoining streets, all of which is now held at pretty high figures. The syndicate that was intending to build from Robert to Jackson on the south side of Sixth street will not be able now to do so for the reason that Mr. Langevin has taken such a course that it makes it impossible for the syndicate to carry out its intention. Mr. Langevin, it is well known, owns the southeast corner of Robert and Sixth streets. It was at first the intention of this gentleman to join in the big block that 6hould extend from Robert to Jackson on Sixth street, but he finally concluded that he would not build with the syndicate but he would sell his property to the members of the syndicate if that organization wished to buy. Of course, they would buy rather than not to build the block clear through as they at first intended. When, however, they began to talk about the price, Mr. Langevin named $50,000 as the price ho was willing to take for his lot. The syndicate, when it heard the sum named squinted up the nor' west corner of the off eye and whistled a long note of surprise. The members of the syndicate asked again so that there might be no mistake as to the price and found that $50,000 was the story. This settled the matter. The members will not pay this sum but they will build all the same. They think they can get along comfortably without pay ing such a price. At any rate they will try to. The largest price paid by the front foot on any of the adjoining streets near the site of the new hotel was paid for twenty five feet next west of the new chamber of commerce site on the southwest corner of Robert and Sixth streets. For this piece measuring twenty-five feet on the south side of Sixth street Messrs. Greve and Oppenheim, who con summated the sale, got $600 per front foot. The name of the purchaser they de clined to make public. It is regarded as a very large price, notwithstanding it in a very desirable location. Messrs. Greve and Oppenheim have sold their double house on Summit avenue to Mr. G. V. Bacon for $22,000. Mr. Greve will erect for himself a new house ©n the corner of Summit and Western avenues. He has the plans already drawn for the structure, which indicates the construction of a very elegant house. Mr. Oppenheim has had plans for a dwelling for himself drawn also. These gentlemen will go right to work and put in the foundations this fall, so that in the spring they can proceed with the work. Capt. M. J. O'Connor sold fifty feet on Minnesota street, between Sixth and Seventh streets, for $10,000. A good many other sales have been made in the locality, but none of them have been made public. Everybody is figuring very slyly. There is no doubt a large number of men with capital are look ing closely after bargains in St, Paul at the present time, and most of the atten tion of these gentlemen is confined to the locality bounded by Third, Eighth Jackson and Wabashaw. The objective point mivht be considerably more concentrated hm buying close up around the new hotel site. In saying what has been said above, it is not intended that it should be understood that all attention to other property has been withdrawn. The usual transactions in residence property have occurred. The principal attention of buyers is not, however, turned that way. The market is in a curious situation. Prices are very firm, and money enough is present in the market to buy ail that purchasers think can be bought cheap, or aven at a reasonable price. At the same time holders are very stiff and firm in their demands, and manifest no disposition to modify prices at all. The firmness on the part of sellers has a tendency to limit transactions, and the consequence is the records of the reg ister of deeds do not show the sales to be very large. In fact the month of August thus far has been rather quiet, as it is always expected to be. Still with all its quietness the sales have run up to $459, --570. Messrs. Fairchild & Davidson are of the opinion that September and October will witness considerable activity in the real estate market and that many large and important sales will be consummated be- fore winter sets in. Their correspondence with non-resident capitalists indicate a growing interest in the northwest and par ticularly in this city. Whenever it is known throughout the country that anoth er bountiful harvest has been gathered in the northwest, thousands in the older states who have been looking longingly in this i i I direction will pull up stakes and "go west.','; S They predict that St. Paul will get her full proportion of 'the new comers. They have rosy views of the "coming . future" and claim that they have a "corner lot" suitable for business or for residence for every man that wants one.

JiASE JiALL. The Minnesota Chiefs Waxed Badly by the Ked Caps. The return game of base ball between the Red Caps, of St. Paul, and the Minne sota Chiefs, of Stillwater, was played in this city yesterday afternoon, resulting in a victory for the former by a score of 27 to 2. The two runs by the visitors were made in the first inning, they being white washed in the eight succeeding innings. The feature of the game was the fine pitching of Hogan, late of the Union club, of Chicago. The game was managed by Mr. Lawson, the first baseman, who will hereafter have charge of the matches.

The residents of Dayton's bluff are just now in a ferment over the proposed action of the city, which has in view the shutting off from travel by the Seventh street bridge. An order has been issued which, if carried into effect, will close the bridge to all kinds of travel nest Tuesday, as that is the day on which work will be com menced on the new viaduct. Such a scheme as shutting off travel entirely will work an immense sight of inconvenience to citizens residing on the bluff, and Aid. Van Slyke is using his usual energy to de vise some scheme whereby the foot-way may be kept open. At the la?t meeting of the council the question of providing safeguards at the Third street crossing was agitated, and a serious doubt arose as to whether it would not be best to abandon the crossing alto gether until such a time as the railroad tracks were properly guarded. The matter was referred to the city engineer, and yes terday afternoon a conference was held, at which Mr. Somers reported that in hia judgment the Third street croseing is absolutely dangerous to life and property, and he recommended that it be closed to travel. In view of this the Third street crossing will in all probability be also closed on Tuesday, which will confine the travel between Dayton's bluff and ihe central part of the city to Reaney, Fourth and Fauquier streets unless some means shall be devised to keep Seventh street open to foot travel. ■ i .A.

'."':'■ There was quite a sensation in the town of White Bear on Friday evening, that camejvery near resulting in a sickening tragedy involving the life of an innocent young child. About a mile and a half west of the vil lage of White Bear lives John Capestrand, on a small farm which he has cultivated for several years past, earning for himself and his family a comfortable livelihood, He is known in the neighborhood as a jolly good fellow, fond of good company, ready at a moment's notice to shoulder hia rifle or shotgun and lead a party to the best hunting grounds in the vicinity. He is a crack shot, and can bring down prairie chickens or ducks without number if they fly within range of his gun. John, or "Jack" as he is familiarly known, has a daughter about six years of age who is the apple of his eye. She is unusually bright and pretty for one of her years, and loves to roam at large through the fields adja cent to her home. On Friday evening ' the little one was playing a short distance from the house, when her father heard her cry out, '"Oh, papa, come and see this great big pretty dog." The father went toward the child,, and what was his horror to see his child confronted by a large black bear, that was apparently preparing for a delicious feast. Realizing that if he made any motion he might precipitate its attack upon his child, Mr. Capestrand called to his wife to bring his rifle. This she did with all expedition, but none too soon, as hardly had the trusty weapon reached him ere the bear reared npon his haunches and was on the point of embracing the child in a death clasp. With a cool nerve Capestrand took aim and sent a bullet through the heart of the adimal, which fell dead at the feet of the little girl before she had realized the dan ger in which she stood. The bullet passed so near the child's head that it tore out a lock of her hair, which was imbedded in the brute's body. The joy of the parents at the escape of their child from a terrible death can be imagined. They overwhelmed her with caresses, and took good care that she phould not quit their sight for that even ing at least. The bear was an ugly looking brute, though apparently a young one, and weighed about 150 pounds. Mr. CaDe strand brought his carcass to the city yes terday morning, and placed it in Drake's Arctic store at Seven Corners, where it was seen by a large number of people. Where he came from is a mystery. Some declare him to have been wild, while others assert that he was one of a pair that escap ed from the grounds of Mr. Haas, near Lake Como, about two weeks ago. Even if the latter supposition is true it is mani fest that the animal would not have been at all averse to making a supper of the dainty child that came so near being his prey. the CHURCHES.

Gents — Whoever you are, I don't know; but I thai k the Lo:d and feel grateful to you to know that in this world of adulterated medi cines there 13 one compound that proves and does all it advertie-es to do, and more. Four years ago I had a slight shoes of palsy, whicn unnerved me to such an extent that the least ex citement would make me shake like tho ague. Last May I was induced 10 try Hop Bitters. I used one bottle, but did not see any cha ge; an oth' r did so change my nerves that they are now as steady as they ever were. It used to take both hands to write, but now ny/ good right hand writes this. Now, if you continue to man ufacture as hone? t aud good an article as you do, you will accumulate an hunest fortune, and con fer the greatest blessing on yo: r fellow-mea that was ever conferred oa mankind. TIM BURCH. Judge liuir's lUauiief. A light docket greeted hizzoner at the police court again yesterday mornine, ami it really seems as if the hot spell had even an enervating effect on vice, which is not half as rampant as a week or so ago. The most pronounced case was that of William Berg; he is a young man with a plausible exterior but a depraved heart. He made a sneak on a diamond ring in Stone's jew elry store, and when detected he took to his heels and threw the gem away. He was held to the grand jury and committed in default of $1,000. John Pearson, a free lunch fiend, was up for vagrancy. He wanted to go into the suburbs, and the court ordered him to do the grand pedestrian act. The case of G. W. Magee, charged with frescoing the head of his barkeeper, was continued until the 20th inst. N. Rebholz is the owner of two dogs and he refused to pay the necessary license. He was up yesterday and a fine of $10 was imposed. On agreeing to square matters the fine was suspended. An Answer Wanted.

The quantity of pipe laid for the period has been almost unprec edented, some idea of which may be ob tained by reference to the following fig ures obtained at the water office: Quantity of twelve inch pipe laid since April 1, 1,050 feet; six inch pipe, 9,102 feet; four inch pipe* 3,353 feet; sixteen inch pipe to be laid on account of the change of grade on Seventh street, 720 feet. During the same period twenty-fonr new hydrants have been set and twenty-four old ones reset, in ad dition to which nineteen street sprinkling hydrants have been placed and thirty-five gates of various sizes have been con structed. We All Know That water never runs up hill; that kisses taste better than they look, and are better after dark; that it is better to be right than to be left; that those who take Dr. Jones' Red Clover Tonic never have dyspepsia; costiveness, bad breath, piles, pimples, ague and malaria diseases, poor appetite, low spirits, headache or diseases of the kidneys and bladder.
