A Plan of Selling Property by Selling Paper First. $3 Montague Tiggs in (he Seal Estate The Dangers of Buying Dots Without Seeing Them, . Transfers for the Week. Unfavorable weather affects no other business so much as the sale of real estate. No sensible man will buy ground without going to look at it, over it, and around it, and all around he neighborhood of it. There are people who buy lots without these preliminaries, but, in nine cases out of ten, they sometime wish they hadn’t. Instance the “Boulevard Addition” of Goorgo- W. Scott, and several similar “ suburban ” addi tions, two of which wo call to mind now as “ south of and adjoining the town of Hyde Park.” Daring the few days of pleasant weather in the first half of this week, there was a percepti ble increase in the inquiry and negotiation for suburban lands, but the activity baa declined with the mercury in the thermometer, and it is not probable there will bo much done until the advene of milder weather. Considering tho difficulty of negotiating reat estate paper during the past month or two, it ia a little remarkable that the volume of transac tions has kept up so well. Many of those who speculate in land depend on the sale of the pa per they take in the sale of one piece of ground for money to buy another, and the difficulty of selling the'paper this winter has been the means of greatly diminishing the number of sales. The demand for single lots at prices ranging from SSOO to SI,OOO baa not been affected by thd stringency of the money market, because th» purchasers are nearly all mechanics or salaried men who have had the money lying in savings banks for that purpose. The supply of money offered by brokers and loan agents is, however, increasing, and it is pretty safe to predict that when the grass begins to sprout speculation ia suburban property will be as active as in any previous spring. THE FLAN OF HEAL ESTATE PAPER ” to sell, has been resorted to in a good many in* stances lately. “A” owns a ten-acre tract in tbs suburbs, or has built a block of dwellings, or a business block, which he wants to sell for. say, SIOO,OOO. Failing to find a bona fide purchaser at once, at that price, he gets some friend, “ B,' v tobny it nominally for $125,000. “B”getaadecd to the property and gives his notes and a mort gage back for SIOO,OOO. With the mortgage and the SIOO,OOO of notes representing four-fifths oC the nominal purchase money, “A” goes to some other city and sells the notes and security to *• C,” who thinks that it cannot bo a bad investment if 14 B” was will ing to pay $25,000 down and give bis notes for the remaining SIOO,OOO. When tho notes come dne, B is, of coarse, nnahle to pay, and, having never paid tho $25,000 in the begin ning, does not care; C either forecloses, or the property is transferred to him by agreement, and the net result is, that C has bought the property for just tho price he could have bought it of A for. It should not be understood that this is a common practice, though it is known to have been done in a number of cases. It is to bo condemned, because, like all other deceptive transactions, it makes a fictitious standard of prices, and has the effect to throw a general dis credit on the whole volnme of legitimate trans actions, and when found out, as it inevitably will be, is an injury to every man who offers to sell property or real estate paper on an honest basis. SWINDLES IK “CHEAP SURURBAK LOTS ” are getting to bo eo numerous that unless some stop can be put to it the whole real estate busi ness will be seriously affected br it this spring. There are dozens of plausible Alontague Tiggs in this city in the real estate agency business, and nearly all of them make a specialty of “ cheap suburban lots ” which are utterly worth less, but which they contrive, in a dozen ways, to'sell to unsuspecting workmen for prices rang ing from SSO to S3OO each. Many of thee© fel lows have respectable-looking offices! and make a show of legitimate business, calculated to de ceive even some reasonably shrewd purchasers. Many of them get, by some hook or crook, rec ommendations from respectable and honest peo ple. In short, these real estate swindlers are assuming such an alarming degree of plausi bility, and are got up in such elaborate ways, that in many cases it is difficult to prove the swindle legally, and yet it is apparent to common sense. The swindlers are, in many instances, so well posted in the law that they defy it, and if the press makes the charge, it is at the risk of a suit for libel. A REAL ESTATE SWINDLER COME TO GRIEF. Lot C. Whitford. a well-known dealer in water lots and subdivisions of divers swamps in Hvde Park and Lake Townships, was arraigned on Fri day before Justice DoWolf, and held to bail to an swer at the Criminal Court to a charge of swind ling, preferred by Joseph Platt. Several of Wmtford’s victims were in Court; others are al most daily turning up, and the prospect is that, for seme time to come, be will bo sufficiently busied with past real estate speculations to have little leisure or inclination for fresh enterprises. His plan of operation was somewhat original. His agent, or “ pal,” advertised in The Trdjunb for furniture, hoises, wagons, Western lands, etc., in exchange for suburban lots. Inquirers would be shown some nice-looking vacant land in some attrac tive locality, as the property of Whitford, and a trade negotiated by the agent. Whitford takes the property offered in exchange and gives a deed of soma swamp lots, five or eight miles distant from the spot shown to the unsuspecting victim. These being usually ignorant laborers, farmers, poor widows, strangers new to the city, unaware of the importance of an abstract, and unable to fee a real estate lawyer, thinking of nothing so much as a little cottage on their “ suburban lot,” take the “prominent real estate dealer at bis word, and scores of them are per haps jet ignorant of the fraud which has been practiced upon them. WhitfordV escape dodge was, of course, his ignorance of the fact that the agent hail shown the wrong lots; while the agent, in his turn, pleaded that he never saw the deed, and did not know its contents. No other field for the Chicago swindler is at present so fertile as the real estate business, and cons is more industriously worked. For the reputa tion of the city, and the interest of all honorable dealers in real estate, it is to be hoped that the fate which, at least, overtook Fuller <t Bain forth, may soon be visited upon some of these miscreants who live by ficecine the honest, un suspecting seekers of bumble nomes in Chicago. STILL ANOTHER CASE. Jacob Cohn and Melvin W. Palmer, of tbo real estate firm of Cohn <fc Co., were bound over by Jus tice Cannon to appear at the March term of the Criminal Court to answer to tho charge of stria* dling a Mr, Getz out of $4,500 worth of goods— being part of hia stock in trade on State ai£cct — which said Cohn <fe Co. eacceeded in getting possession of by the transfer of 30 lots in “Bus sell's Subdivision,” situated in the swamps, 2 miles south of the mouth of Calumet River. It seems Cohn & Co. told Mr. Getz exactly where the lota were really situated, and, therefore, could not be charged with misrepresentation in that pstricular, but they also persuaded him tha* thevcould retail them all out for $135 tosi6o each within a month, and to convince him of this the* got three “ Peter Funk ” purchasers to com" ii and make bargains for three of'the lots wh : <*h thoy ircre tohuy of Mr. Getz as soon mhem) his title to the whole. The three Peter Fu : L even paid S2O each to Cohn & Co., to bind !-• bargain, the money, of course, being handed back to them when Getz was gone. The retail of all this trickery was that Cohn * Co t-o‘ possession of the 34,500 worth of i;oo-le.' an j Getz got the thirty worthless swamp lots.
