J11 Rents Comiko Down.?From present A ndicatioun this Spring, there must he a ai narked reduction in rents. New conracts for the coming year show a decided |e eduction, although it is confined princi- " ally to storo rooms and the larger dweling houses. Store rents will show the . lost marked decline, although real estate ri wners are striving hard to Keep up the p alue of this class of property. There ap- j, ears to be a prevailing determination Jj mong merchants and business men ? enerully, to obtain a lease of store j ooms 'for a less sum of money S, l?ia year, than any year since the anic. The hard times, and the ditti- . ulty experienced in making collections, ? lake it necessary for business men to ? conomize after a manner they never ? ,ave done before. ir. Tenants who took possession of proierty on long lease have found themselves ? reatly embarrasied, from the fact, patent 5 all. that thev have not l?oen able? lany of them?to realize enough profit n llicir business to pay their rent in full, r t hasueen along time since there were o many Htore rooms to rent in thin city. Imply "store rooms are tube found along lmost every street in the city, particu- ? iirly in Centre Wheeling. Tenant# nay lower your renin or we will move out," rhich in many instances they will havo i0 0 do, if not from choice, from necessity. le We all know business will not warrant t|, he payment of such rents, and landordrt should l>e satisfied to take less, con- IU orm to the prevailingshrinkage in busiess and values?in other words "acuiesce in the logic of events," and not tr iursue the insane and suicidal policy of i0 killing the goose .that lays the golden gjr" In Wheeling the decline in rents may j? ot be so great as in other cities. te 'hey have been kept up mar- 0j elously. Still the tendency of real g, state is downward, and in the pre- ]$ ailing shrinkage of values,rents must fol- w iw the decline, and tumble down. Now M hat the groat National issue is settled, a f 'resident elected and political harmony f eatored onco more, the next questions in rderare: reduced rents, cheap water, a lore economical administration of tho (j ity government, and a consequent re- rj uction of taxation. ftl * ?1 w The street cars were running regularly ro esterday, the snow having been removed ns nd the track well salted.
