IS THE BUILDISU LINE IX VARIOUS SECTIONS OP
THX CITT.
1'lant h?w bwn prrpored for an apartment
house in this city which will be one of the
j handsomest ever ereeted here. Several week*
i ago mention waa made of the viait to thia city
j of Messrs. F. O. Newlands and F. W. Sharon,
j of San Francisco. the trustee* of the estate of
the late ex-Senator Sharon. The object of
their visit was to inspect the property in this
city owned by the estate, with the view of mak
ing improvements. The property is valued at
about three-quarters of a million of dollars. It
is all located in the northwestern part of the
city, and consists almost entirely of unim
proved Iota. They were accompanied by Bruce
Price, a New York architect, ana. in accordance
with instructions received from the trustees,
he has completed the sketch plans of
an apartment house which will be lo
cated on the south side of Massachusetts
avenue, between 17th and 18th streets. The
ground has a frontage of eighty-four feet and
is separated from the Force school building by an
alley. The structure will occupy the entire' lot
anil will be six or seven stories in height. One
of the features of the building will be an in
terior court, into which carriage* can be driven
through a covered pasaage-way. The first
floor will be occupied with the parlor, recep
tion-rooms. and ilining-rooms for guests, chil
dren. and nurses and servants. The upper
floors will be arranged in suites of from tnree
to eight rooms. The details of the building
have not been determined upon fully, but it is
probable that the front will be of stone. It is
estimated that the cost of the building will be
about 4300.000. The exterior, as well as the in
terior, will be after the most approved model*,
and the building is intended to be an ornament
to that section of the eity, where many fine
residences are now built.
The erection of this building forms only a
part of the comprehensive plan of improve
ments which the trustees have in contempla
tion. They propose to erect a number of resi
dences. A portion of the property includes
the whole or nearly the whole of squares 151.
153 and 156, besides a block of lots near the
late Mrs. Patten's residence, on P street, near
21st street, and in other localities, Mr. Sharon
acquired this property some five or six years
ago in the settlement of the estate of the late
Judge Sunderland. In connection with John
B. Alley. Mr. Sharon purchased nearly the
whole of the large real estate interests held by
Judge Sunderland. The property has been in
charge of Thus. J. Fisher A Co., the agents of j
Mr. Sharon, and it was after consultation with
them that the trustees decided to begin the
work of improvement.
REAl. ESTATE AND THX HOLIDAYS.
The Christmas holiday has been observed
fully by those who help to make the real estate
market lively. The dealers find that bargains
in Christmas goods more than in real estate
absorb the attention of the public. No one
complains especially of this discrimination in
favor of Christmas. It is an annual occur
rence and. therefore, entirely expected. The
prospect for the future is so' encouraging that
the festivities of the season are no doubt en
joyed with a hearty zest. Those interested in
the building trade as well as those who are in- {
terested in real estate look forward to a period
of renewed prosperity. The great throngs of
visitors from all parts of the country that will
come here during the next year, the attrac
tions of the city as well as the natural growth
of thepopulation, are all reasons for believing
that Washington will soon enjoy a healthy
"boom."
THE CHEAPNESS or WASHINGTON PBOPERTT.
'?Eight years ago." remarked John A. Pre?
cott. the real estate broker, whom a Stab re
porter happened to find in a reminiscent mood,
"ground in this city which sold for fifteen cents
a foot is now selling for #2 per foot. At pres
ent desirable building sites are held at a
still higher figure and yet. sometimes, people
talk to me about property being high in tnis
city. I tell them they are mistaken. The rates j
are certainly greater than a few years ago, and
values have advanced. A few years hence
there will be a still further advance. Com
pared with property similarly located in other
cities prices are low here. Ground is cheap.
Yon pay two or three dollars a foot for ground
to-day and in a few years it will no doubt be
four or five dollars per foot. As the city fills
up. building sites become more expensive.
W ith the growth of population there is an in
crease in the business of the city and an expan
sion out from the business center. Residence
streets are given up to stores and office*, and
ground advances in value. If the city is going
to stand stiil there is of course no future for
property. But the city is growing rapidly and
anyone can see that it is going to be a great
renter of population. There is every indica
tion pointing that way. and it is natural to sup
pose that land is going to increase in value.
It has doue so in the past and I guess the same
rule will hold good for the future."
THE WESTERN SUBURBS.
'?During the past month." observed Mr. Jno.
E. Beall. of the firm of Beall. Brown A Co., "I
have sold a number of lots in the vicinitv of
Dupont Circle. In nearly every case I believe
the srtle* wen made to prospective house build
ers. There has also been some movement in
it- lsir Heights property, and a number of lots
have changed hauils. We were in hopes that
the Commissioners would be willing to spend
some money in curbing and luviug sidewalks
slon^ Massachusetts avenue.which is extended
through Kalorama and Be lair Heights. There
ought to be a w ater main laid, and other im- |
provt ments n> le by the city. There has been
a large expenditure of money in this locality
by the owners of !h" prop.-rty. The enterprise
displayed is unexampled, mid it seems that the
Commissioners outfit to encourage such men.
Until within the past few months this property
has been taxed as agricultural land. Now. in
consequence of the subdivision into city lots
and the improvements made, the amount of
taxis d'rived from the same property has
greatly increased. Of course, nothing can
??heck the growth of the city in this direction,
and the improvements which the property
owners have petitioned for are bound to be
made, and that. too. at no distant day."
In regard to the prospects of propertv along
the Tenlt-ytown road. Mr. Iteall. who is largely
interested in that sc"tion. ssid that the building
of the proposed street railway along the Ten
leytown road would be of great advantage. "We
have asked Congress." he added, "to amend the
charter of the company so that the tracks can
be laid in the middle of the road instead of at |
one side, as the charter at present authorizes.
I have no doubt this will be doue bv Congress
and then the road will be built at once, a* the
mouey needed has been all subscribed."
BUILD1NO AT BROOKLAND.
Mr. A. M. Mi'Lachlen, of the firm of McLach- |
len A liatcheldcr. told a Star reporter that
they had a great many inquiries in regard to
property along 14th street extended. He said
that lots were wunted for building sites, and
from present indications he thought that there
would be a good deal of building in the spring,
not only in that locality but throughout the
city and the suburbs.
"We are selling a good many lot* in the sub
division of Brookland." he continued. '"The
work of grading the street* is going on and
sidewalks are being laid. In the spring H00
trees will be planted, which with those alreadv
planted will give this new subdivision a hand
some appearance. Central avenue is being
opened through Brookland, which will furnish
an additional outlet and a direct communica
tion with Lincoln avenne bv the attractive
country residence of Mr*. Kate'Chase Sprague."
??A number of houses are now in course of
erection," he went on, "and estimates are being
received for others which will probably be
built in the spring. Dr. L. Stejneger. Wm. C.
Denison. Dr. J. Henry Brooks, Leigh ton A
Pairo are now building nouses."
Brookland is on the opposite aide of the
Metropolitan branch of the Baltimore and Ohio
railroad from the new Catholic university.
Like the other suburban settlement* which are
locaW along that road for some fourteen or
fifteen miles from the city, it has attractions for
tho?e j? search of homes convenient to thecitv.
The large increase in the population of thi*
section of the suburbs is one of the manv fact*
which demonstrate the rapid material develop
ment of the city.
A MtOMTSINO OUTLOOK.
"Everything is quiet in the real estate world
at prt sent." said Mr. James B. Wimer to a Stab
Lreporter, "but there are several big thing* on
rthe tapis. It is a little early just now to give
them to the public. December ha* been an
unusually bu*y month, and from present indi
cation* January will be equally a* good, if not
better. The season alao bids fair to rival any
of former year*." 1
E. C. Cutter, of the firm of Cotter A Co., in
conversation with a Star reporter, said he had
several wealthy client* who were looking for
P^rr1/-. large transfer* would
probably be made in a few days. He said he
thought the coming building season would be a
good one, and that property would continue to
boom.

NATURAL PASTOMIMIST9.
An Interesting Performance by the
Students of the Deaf-Mate College.
The chapel hall at the Deaf-mute college,
Kendall Green, held a large audience last even
ing, the occasion being the annual histrionic
efforts of the students of that institution. Na
ture's decree in their case demanding that
these efforts should be of a character appro
priate to the materials and faculties of the
students, the program selected for the enter
tainment was an open pantomime, illustrating
the uneven course of life at a deaf-mute col
lege. The stage was neatly fitted with foot
lights, wings, and a back scene represent
ing a variegated landscape that had an unfor
tunate persistence in remaining throughout
the performance. .
The cast included the usual college
characters, a brace of diguified seniors, as many
ambitious juniors, a couple of very conceited
sophs, and four extremely verdant freshmen.
Messrs. C. W. Charles and 6. F. Bound assumed
the roles of senior students, T. Hagerty and W.
Bcadell those of the Juniors, M. Taylor and F.
Leitner succeeded in being very domineering
as sophomores, while F. Kaufman. G. Hoster
man, O. J Whidlin and C. D. Beaton became
martyrs to the good cau? and ?*rificed them
selves as freshmen. Mr. Kaufman was the
hero of the performsnce, a very green country
man,attired in the most spproved bucolic stvle.
Upon his arrival in the city he became be
wildered by the street signs, which were num
erous and confusing, snd wss about to give up
in despair when he caught sight of a young
man attired in a high hat and cane, with the
other necessary appendages pertaining to a
dude. This was Freshman Hosterman, likewise
bound for the field of learning. He sympa
thized with Hayseed and guided nim aright.
TRIALS AID TRIBULATIONS.
Then followed the trials and tribulations of
the freshmen, distributed through eleven
scenes that delighted the audience beyond
measure. Mock examinations by seniors and
sophs disguised as professors wrung the
freshies' hearts, hazing made Hayseed believe
that college life is not such a bed of roses as he
had imagined it, subscription fiends attacked
him for funds for the benefit of the sports,
base-ball, foot-ball, tennis and the secret
societies, until the poor freshman, bled to the
lowest depths of his purse, was ready to return
to his hay stack and potato patch.
Three additional scenes were given illus
trative of peculiar phases of college life, to the
detriment of nobody in particular, but highly
entertaining to those in front of the foot
lights. Some of the students who have been
taught to talk, to whom silence, nevertheless,
is of no value, occasionally broke forth in loud
explanations to their friends of the muscular
word-painting that was being done on the
stage, breaking the stillness of the chapel hall
with a somewhat startling effect.
The pantomime ended with the scene at the
close of the term, describing the departure of
the happy seniors, now A. B's, and the general
jollification incident to such an occasion.
The committee of arrangements having the
preparation of the entertainment in charge
was C. W. Charles. '89, chairman; T. Hagerty,
'90; W. W. Beadell, '91: M. M. Taylor, '92: G.
Y. Hosterman, '93; H. Van Allen. '89; F. Leit

OLD SOLDIERS AT~ DINNER.
The Annual Banquet of the Alliance
Last Evening.
The Union Soldiers' Alliance held its tenth
annual banquet and reunion at Freund's last
night, and about seventy-five ex-soldiers were
seated about four handsomely decorated tables,
and for two hours discussed an exceptionally
fine and varied menu. The retiring president,
Wm. Gibson, called the assembly to order and
then the following officers for the year 1889
were escorted to tneir places; _ President. Geo.
A. Bartlett; first vice-president. Abraham
Hart; second vice-president. Franklin G. But
terfield; third vice-president. Alex F. McMil
lan; secretary. John L Henpel; assistant sec
retary. liobt G. Cunningham; treasurer, Saml.
C. Love joy; proctor. Edgar H. Klemroth.
With the coffee and cigars came first the in
augural address of President Bartlett, which
was heartily greeted. He then announced the
following toasts: "The President of the Uni
ted States; the chosen magistrate of sixty-five
million of freemen;" response by Gen. S. S.
Burdett. '-Our Annual Reunions; merry hours
never to be forgotten;" C'apt. J. M.
Edgar. "Our fallen comrades; they died
I to save what we. living, will defend and per
petuate." Drank in silence. "The armv and
the navy?the nation's reliance in the day of
peril;" CoL F. A. Butts. "Our country?a name
that symbolizes and contains all that we hold
dear;'1 Capt B. T. Jannev. "The loyal
women?who were not only fair, but brave;"
Capt F. W. Mitchell. "The press?the senti
nel on the watch-tower of liberty;" Dr. Frank
T. Howe. "The Grand Army of the Republic?
the promoter of fraternity, the dispenser of
charity, the preserver of loyalty;" Col. J. Cam
eron. "The loyal civilians?whose patriotism
gave force to the bullets and point to the bayo
nets which saved the nation;' Maj. F. G. But
terfleld. Besides these, speeches were made
by Hon. Fred. 8. Goodrich, of Florida; Maj.
G. Clay Goodloe. Gen. J. B. Coit, Lieut. Car
ter. Col. C. P. Lincoln, and Capt. A. Hart
All the speeches were overflowing with pa
triotism and many touching incidents of the
war were told. Armv songs were also sung,
and it was quite late when the assemblage ad
journed.
The alliance is limited in its membership to
100. and occupies a similar position to the rank
and file of both army and navy as does the
Loyal Legion to those who were Union officers
during the late war. Its roster at present is as

Adah Isascs Menken is one at the most interesting
figures in the annals of the American stajre. Her won
derful personal beauty and her rare accomplishments,
' her splendid qualities and her outrageous faults, her
pathetic end, have all marked her out among American
women. Her little book of poems, "InfellcJa." has
always been a favorite with readers who are moved or
interested by the sight of a human heart bared to the
world. The passion, the agony, the scorn of the out
cast who feels that she is more sinned against than
sinning have never found more potent words than In
the unrhymed chants entitled "My Heritage" and
"Judith."
