New Tork, April 5. Overtures are being made to the Ringling Brothers to purchase Madtison Square Garden. Should the deal be consummated the greatest ani most famous sporting arena in this country will be preserved to New York. Although matters have not pro gressed beyond a tentative stage, they were discussed last night with enthu siasm by a few captains of the real estate market, who shared in the se cret. The price asked is $3,250,000. This is $200,000 less than the amount at which it was offered to the city In 1907, when the site was suggested for the proposed new court house. There has. never been a time since the Garden was opened on Juno 16, 1890, that the stock holders have received a. dividend on their investment. Alfred T. Ringling said: "It would be premature to discuss the matter at tihis time. We have not purchased Madison Square Garden, nor has any definite decision been reached-. It is true that overtures have been made, but they have not corae from the stockholders. I must decline to affirm or deny the reports heard in real es tate circles further than to state that no contract has been entered) into." The plane for alterations include building three or more stories on the Madison avenue frontage, which would he devoted to business purposes. Another suggestion i to provide for a big auditorium by combining' the Garden theatre and the concert hall. This plan provides for a movable par tition which would separate the thea tre and concert hall when occasion re quired. Although, the Ringling Bros, regard the project primarily as a business proposition, sentiment plays a promi nent part in their attitude toward the overtures. Not so many years ago the famous brother showmen set their eyes on Madison Square Garden as a goal post to their ambitions. Barnum & Bailey enjoyed the exclusive privilege of exhibiting- thUr circus in the Gar den. Other proprietors, and' notably the Ringilings. sought admission, but were barred by the Barnum & Bailey contract. The Ringlings were deter mined to accomplish their ambition, and to that endi purchased the Barnum & Bailey property and with R the ex clusive right to "come to New Tork town" once a year and show in the Garden. Madison Square Garden under their ownership would serve as a monument to American youth of what energy and integrity can accomplish. It would mean that their first "mammoth pa vilion", which consisted of an old rag carpet Iborrowed from their mother s kitchen and! stretched in the back yard, had grown to a canopy inclos ing the greatest ampitiheatre in this country. The Garden site covers thirty-two city lots. It originally cost $1,000,000 and tne building $1,500,000. It Is known that the Ringling Bros., should they decide to purchase, will perpetuate the ampirheatre as the home of the Horse Show. STKATFORD R. A- Helman's MARKET, BEEF. VEAL AND NATIVE VEGETABLES.

It is now announced that the place has been purchased from the McEwen estate. It is hinted that many improvements will be made.
