BRISK DEMAND FOR SOFTWOOD LUMBER With the advance of spring it becomes more and more evident that the lumber industry is to have a good year. Buying , by retailers shows steady expansion, and very little of It is speculative, for lumber is going out of the retail yards as fast as it is being brought in, and. according to the American Lumberman, in some cases stocks ar> being sold more quickly tlrnn they can be replaced, requests for rush shipment being numerous. A number of the larger softwood producers havj as much business on their hooks ns thev cure to take oil for some time, some hvrtng called their traveling men" in off the load. Many of the large mills are vary careful about accepting business for future delivery. Production, although it is steadily increasing, is much below orders, but numbers of small mills, particularly In the Southern pine producing region, are opening up and will increase the quantity of lumber which will shortly be available. The hardwood market ls?not so brlsit as the softwood. During the last nionUi prices of softwoods throughout tnc country hava advanced. Hardwood demand'is not so keen, and while the market is firm sustained advances haves been fewer. More hurdwood is being taken by Industrial concerns, but tb?y are very careful about buying, and are not seeking supplies for any great length of time ahead. Production of hardwoods in the South is much curtailed by flood conditions, and it is evident that as a result of recent Inundations there Is going to be a decided shortage In Southern hardwoods at least. " TENANT LC LAW CASJ I If a man occupying an apartment In a non-elcvator house at $T5 a month rent decides for the comfort and welfare of his wife to sign a lease for a suite in an elevator apartment house >t $100 a .month and then refuses to pay more than one month's rent on .ho ground that the rate Is unreasonable 4 snd that he entered Into the contract under duress, such a tenant does not place himself under the sheltering arms of the so-called "Rent Laws," according to a recent decision by Municipal Gourt Justice John lletherington of the Seventh district, Manhattan. TTie tenant In the case is Albert flross* man, a salesman fur a New York business house. The landlord Is A. 1*. W Kinnan, executor of the estate of the late Marshall 1'. Wilder. The tenant had heen occupying under lease an apartment in 6011 to 611 West 140th street. A Jury rendered a verdict against Mr. Grossman and the tenant moved that It be set aside In denying the motion, Justice Hetherlngton In his opinion says: "Recognizing the scarcity of dwelling places which enable owners of rentable - reasonably high rentals. and prompted by & desire to afford relief for tenants who, under stress of emergency, were compelled to enter Into extortionate agreements to secure places of habitation for their families, the legislature enacted certain statutes which are popularly called the 'Rent I<aws,' and therein have in large measure curbed rapacious landlords by permitting various defenses to be Interposed In proceedings brought to oust tenants or recover rent reserved In the agreement of hiring. "These rent laws permit a tenant to Interpose as a defense a claim that ths rent is unjust, unreasonable and opprerstva and that the agreement under which It was reserved was entered Into by the tenant 'under duress." such 'duress' being based upon the 'emergency' arising from the shortage of dwellings and the necessity of a domicile 'in the case at bar the tennn Interposed such a defense and lie was not precluded from tendering such ar. Issue as ;his counsel argues, but he fulled to establish It by any evldenee whatever, heice a verdict was directed for the landlord and such verdict was rendered by the Jury. The tenant now moves that It he set aside and a new trial ordered. '^l*pon the facts It appears that the tenfcnt was In possession of a eomfortflble dwelling apartment at a monthly I'mai 01 fiu. n? was n marneu man and lived therein with liin wife. Indications of the realization of his hopes of posterity. Incited .him to consider the Inconvenience to his wife In the use of th? stairs as a means of access to the ai'irtment and the easier mode of an elevator, hence he oast about him for ? -s, so-called "elevator" apartment and I found the property of the landlord here. I -Inquiry discdosed that an npartment at I $fii| per month was available, but It did I not suit him. He naked If n better one [ wofs available and was shown the one I holnow occupies. -Onrcernlir Its rental he was told It would be $100 monthly. Ho.'asked If It would be renovated and th?? reply was made that It would be If heSsntered Into n lease of It for a term /olthls be aftreod. the lease In question ere was prepared and executed ; the landlord at a considerable exponre reno tfi<j tenant and the tenant entered Into poaesaion and paid one month's rent bu? refused to pay thereafter at the rat' aglred. In addition to these farts the tenant tratified that he was a aalraman for a Pfew York business house, and hart "tipleted his education by a course In flaw which had enabled him to b? s(Miltted to the Bar, although he rvn? not ii/tv a practising attorney. Furthermore that the apartment which he ea a. ( nnrp>rnir?rr ^ivvniux& ) " ^ ^ |li. ^? A young Westerner now in the real estate business in tlys city made a trip to the Thrcgs Neck section of the Bronx recently to look over some property to be sold at auction by J. P. Day. He became so interested in the robust youngsters running about that he forgot the lots. His impression of the landscape at the junction of Eastern Boulevard and 5ast Tremont avenue 1 1_1 13 recoraea aoovc. At the right are shown a few of the many houses which have sprung up in the Throgs Neck area since the first auction sale was held there in September, 1920. j V J AVith the lot market boiling1 over and writers on real estate topics straining their jaded imaginations for new and picturesque phrases to describe the situation, it can well be imag'neri that | scsyity choice remains for the scribe who )SES RENT tx t / >/^~\t ir^ nr H- UN LAJUINl vacated was V"a'lab'e to him as long: as he chose to remain, its rent was less than that of the one he leased from the lanlord here, that he was under no notice to quit, and save for the fact that his former domicile had no elevator to carry his wife up and clown, It was quite comfortable. That he gave it up voluntarily. /'Under these circumstances^ this tenant. an educated business man, entering into a written lease of an apartment after driving a shrewd bargain as to its renovation and rental, now claitris he did so under duress. His counsel urges and cites authorities to the effect that the defense of 'unreasonableness in rental and duress' are vailable to every tenant, under the provisions of the rent laws and that he cannot be estopped nor precluded from its interposition. No one questions this, but it is one thing tosinterpose a defense and another to establish it. "The cause, was tried precisely upon this issue. ?. "While a general emergency may exist (and undoubtedly does) from the ' Inability of tenants to procure dwellings, i it affects the public collectively, not always individually. In the case at bar 1 it affected the tenant not at all. Com consideration of thes^cnses and only where it is estublUthra that the emergency affected the tenant and that such emergency forced him Into the agreement can It be held to ha^e been established. Norther conclusion can In Justice be arrived at. The emergency recognized by the legislature la an emergency that takes awav homes and shelter from the populace; no such em, ergency confronted the tenant here. He ( simply desired for his wife the luxury of an elevator apartment Mothers have survived childbirth and reared excellent offspring ft>r c-nturies before elevators Wf/e thought of. and. if he desired the luxury, he should be held to paly for it. Ah well say that a passenger on a railroad. failing to find satisfactory seats for himself und wife in day coach, could j demand seats in the parlor car without ' paying the additional cost thereof. "The 'rent' legislation so curtails the right to freedom of contract (rightly so ' It Is admitted) that before the relief afforded thereby can be granted, the tenant must put himself squarely within its provisions, the defense is affirmative, und here he had to show that the 'emergency' worked the 'duress' of which he complains. Having utterly failed to do so. the verdict directed for the landlord must stand. Another Rite Plant for I.. T. City. William 15.

To prove that the knight of the gavt Is worthy of this new dls'inction it i only necessary to point to the ictivit to-day in the Throgs Neok district t the Bronx and to trace the deveiopnieti of that interesting section of th?? north em borough lying between Wes'cheste Creek, the East River, the Sound an Eastchester Bay.

He was un questionably the first suburban (level oper to establish a colony in that sectlo of the country Just what terms he ol fereu to settlers is not known, but it I a matter of record that he induce thirty-five families to take up thel residence there. All went serenely with Throckmorton' Neck as the colony was called, until ; band of Indians raised a controvers over the title to the land. There wer no title companies or TorrenH laws i those days and in the absence of lega weapons the Indians resorted to tonia hawks which ultimately proved thei right of possession. Throckmorton sold what was left c the title to Augustine Hermans from him 1? descended through a senc of ownerships involving the names c some of the most prominent families i the early history of New York.
