REAL ESTATE.
Continuance of a Fair Business in the Sale
of Cheap Lots.
The Desire to Own Homes—Changes
in House-Rents,
Recent Sales—The Belt Railway—The
New Northwestern Shops.
Transfers tor the Week.
Thoro is little to say about the condition of
Uto roal cstato market, except to repeat sub
stantially what was said last week, viz.: that
there is still an active business in the sale of
cheap lots in the suburbs, and but little doing in
the higher-priced property in the central port of
the city. The fact is that, except ns regards
business property, the traffic in real estate has
boon affected by the financial crisis loss, than al
most any other branch of business in this city.
Wo hoar, almost dally, of offers of money from
parties iu both Eastern and Western towns for
lots in Ohicago. A largo proportion of
those offers, however, result in nothing,
because the parties who make them oxpoct to
buy at largo reductions on former prices. On
the other hand, wo hoar of several pieces of un
improved medium and first-class residence
property, in some of the principal residence
quarters, being sold for from 15 to 20 per cent
less than was demanded for it before the panic.
But in every such case the consideration for tho
reduction in price has boon a largo cash pay
ment. Any one who is obliged to soli roal estate
at any time, of course, only does so to got ready
cash, —an article which, os everybody knows, is
so scarce just now that a largo cosh payment
can only bo had by an important reduction in
price.
•• Tho financial crisis, which has now lasted two
months, has had tho effect to turn tho attention of
a largo class of small capitalists and salaried men
to tho consideration of tho fact that the host
thing a man can have for bis money, and the
first thing ho ought to acquire with his savings,
is a home. In the iluah times and speculative
spirit which prevailed for several years up to
two months ago, there was a. great temptation
to speculate or trade in something that fluctu
ated rapidly in price. Tho marvelous increase of
the wealth of some of the groat speculators in
grain or stocks,'' or in now trade nnd
manufacturing tschomos, had imbued tbo
whole pooplo of this country with an
impatience to mako money by somo sort of
financiering. Thousands of men wero fascinated
with tho example of tho stock speculators in Now
York or tho grain speculators of Chicago. They
ware ambitions of making in ono day, by <4 a
turn" in wheat or corn, or liock Island or
Northwestern, or somo other ono of tho hun
dred modes of gambling, as much profit as a
year’s salary. To all who had become in
fatuated with this impatient spirit of specu
lation, tho investment of money in a home
had become an “ old fogy,” conservative idea.
Wives, who saw that tho fortunes of thoir
husbands jwero dally hazarded on tbo fluctua
tions of price of' somo commodity or fancy
stock, often urged tho securing of a home of
their own, freo from tho monthly calls of a land
lord. But tho usual answer of tho husband to
this was that ho could make more out of his
capital by using it every day in trado or specula
tion. If ho locked it up in a homo ho could got
no return for it but tbo saving of tho rout, which,
ho could always prove by his fine figures, was
too small a profit. But now tho day
of speculation is over; money is not
go easily borrowed, and tho occupation of those
who traded on margins has gone. Economy in
personal and houseuold expenditure is tho rule.
Men who despised tho modest homos which they
would have been able to own, and preferred
living in tho more pretentious ones for which
Ihov could only pay rent from month to month,
.find that they must chango thoir scale of expen
diture ; bonce they must look for cheaper and
smaller houses. A chango of this kind is always
humiliating, and they regret that they did aotbuy
tho smaller house when they wore able. Notwith
standing tho specious figures of those who at
tempt to prove that it is cheaper to board at a
hotel or private boarding-house, it is certain
that tho economy in dress, washing, and many
other things, that can ho practiced at homo, aro
impossible in a public house. Thus, the atten
tion of many a man is now turned to the acquisi
tion of a cheap home, who would never have
listened to it in tho flush times of speculation.
DWELLING HUNTS.
Tho change in tho scale of living expenses, as
explained übovo, accounts for tuo greatly in
creased demand within tho past month for
houses to rent from SSO to S6O per month, and
the falling off in tho demand for resi
dences that havo rented for 61,200 por
annum and upward. It seems protty certain
that there must bo a reduction of from 10 to 20
Eer cent in tho rentals of all residences that
two commanded as much as SIOO por month,
while on tho other hand cottages that havo rent
ed at $25 to $lO per month will bo moro in de
mand than over. 4
There is considerable demand for residence's
ranging from 60,000 to $12,000 on tho South
Side, but it is dltlicult to find such dwellings for
sale.

“HARD TIMES.”
The County Agent and tiio Relief
Society Already Overrun With Ap
plicants for Aid.
Tho wheels of our city and county works of
charity require at tho present time an unusual
amount of Samaritan oil to keep them running
steadily. Tho hard times are beginning to bo
felt keenly by the poor, and, as a natural con
sequence, tho County Agent’s office and tho
office of tho Chicago Relief and Aid Society are
every day besieged by crowds of mendicants.
At tho latter place a very largo in
crease has boon reported within tho last
fortnight. The great reason sot forth by appli
cants for their Impoverished condition is lack of
work, and a great many families plead that they
have boon deserted by their natural supporters,—
a thing which every fall is of too frequent occur
rence, and which ought to bo put an end to. Of
cases of this kind, there are an unusually largo
number this fall. Tho Relief and Aid Society
say that a largo proportion of tho pauper popu
lation is mado up of recently-arrived artisans,
who, os long os work lasts, are valuable citizens,
hut who, when work cannot bo obtained, ace
without mouoy, and. by reason of their recent
arrival, without credit, and have but one moans
of living,—that of throwing themselves upon
the city’s raoroy. The idea prevalent abroad
that Chicago is an Eldorado, whore every man
can get work and high wages tho moment he
arrives i within its precincts, still brings thou
sands of penniless men and families to this
city, tho coiiocqucnco being (hat at tho
present moment there are lu all branches of
Industry iu this city about live times na many
operatives as would bo required to do tho work.
Tho advice of tho Relief and Aid Rooloty to such,
is to got out of tho city as soon us possible, and
locale themselves whore they know they can got
work. It is tho opinion of tho managers that
the Society has a very hard winter’s work be
fore them, and they will have to employ tho ut
most economy and discrimination iu tho many
cases of pauperism to manage to come out right
lu the spring. They slate that, wore it not for
tholr action in reserving the halanoo of tho fire
fund against such a apodal emergency ns tho
present, they would not bo able to carry on their
work through tho winter.
At tho County Agent’s office a vorv marked ln
crouap m the applications for relief is obuorva
blo, tho number ot cases of relief granted being
one-third greater than that at thin time lust
year. Hero, too, tho utmost vigilance is oh-
Bon-ofl to cuard against imposition, tho County
Agoot toning tho ufllcittvit of ouch applicant be
fore toilet is framed.
NUMBER 80.
RAILROAD NEWS
Suspension of the California & Texas
Construction Company.
History of the Company—The Work It
Has Accomplished.
A Big Transfer Boat at Cairo—Con
structiou and Consolidation.
Business on tho various railroads in ibis city
is exceedingly dull at present. Not & road in
tho city, with tbo exception of tho Chicago A
Alton and tho Chicago (c Paducah, Is carrying
on any construction at present, and, besides
malting retrenchments wherever possible, the
wages of all tbo employes on our roads have
boon reduced. Tho suspension of tho California
A Texas Construction Company added greatly to
tho depressed fooling already existing.
Tho above Company was organized for tho pur
pose of constructing tho Texas «fc Paclflo Rail
road, from Shreveport, La., to San Diego, Gal.
Tho road is already completed to near Fort
Worth, a distance of 300 miles. The
Company’s heavy linos of discounts, mado
to prosoento tho work on tho road,
in anticipation of tho negotiation of a loan in
Europe, proved too heavy for oven a combina
tion of tho strongest financial men in tho coun
try to carry through tho present unexampled
stringency of tho money market. Tho notes of
tho Construction Company are indorsed by Col.
Thomas A. Scott, Mathow Baird, John McNa
mara, and other capitalists, to tho amount of
about 84,500,000, all of which will maturo within
a few days. In addition, tho Construction Com
pany has SOOO,OOO of unsecured obligations in the
shape of drafts, and $1,600,000 of loans on col
laterals and individual security, and $250,000 of
floating debt, making an aggregate of $7,000,000.
in liabilities. Tho amount thus raised, and*
$4,000,000 paid in cash by tho stockholders of tbo
Construction Company,makesaltogothorsll,ooo,-
000 that has boon expended on tho construction
of tho Texas & Pacific Railroad. For this
amount of money tho Construction Company has
to show 800 miles of completed, equipped, and
operated railroad, from Shreveport to Dillaa,
from Marshall to Toxana, and from Shor
man toward Paris, and 140 miles in addition are
graded, bridged, and supplied with ties ready
for the iron.
Tho fact that, tho Company suspended
payment, and that Col. Thomas A. Scott is tho
indorsor of several millions of tho notes, as well
as tho President of tho Texas & Pacific, gavo
rise to tho rumors about tho f&iluro of Co 1.
Scott. As yet Col. Scott has not failed, but
whether ho will bo ablo to weather tho storm is
a matter of groat doubt among our loading rail
way man. Should bo go under, thon there is no
doubt that every railroad company in tho coun
try will suffer moro or loss, and for this reason a
panicky feeling exists among railway magnates
in this city.
THROUGH TO NEW ORLEANS.
Tho Illinois Central Railroad Company has
constructed tho finest transfer boat in tho West
ern country. It will bo used to carry trains ovor
tho Mississippi at Cairo, to connect with the
Mississippi Central, as soon as tbo latter road is
completed to a point opposito Cairo, which is
expected to t&ko place about tbo middle of this
month. Two weeks, therefore, will probably
find tbo Illinois Central with a line of through
freight and passenger cars in operation between
this city and Now Orleans. Tho change of gauga
will bo provided for by changing tho trucks
umlor tbo cars, as is successfully done by sev
eral Eastern roads. Tho now boat is provided
with a double track, and is capable of transfer
ring twolvo loaded freight cars at onco, or within
ton hours 125 loaded cars either way.
CONSTRUCTION AND CONSOLIDATION.
It is reported that officers of the Erie anfr
Atlantic & Groat Western Companies are making
arrangements for the construction of the GolionT
Logausporfc & Chicago Railroad. It is proposed
to build the road on a line nearly parallel to the
Pittsburgh, Fort Wayuo & Chicago, from Gallon
to this city. Tho Company was organized in
Ohio a few months sinco.
The Cincinnati, Lafayette & Chicago Railroad
has recently made an agreement of consolidation
with tho Indianapolis, Cincinnati & Lafayette
Railroad. Tho road is now 57 miles long, from
Templeton. Ind., northwest to tho Illinois Cen
tral at Kankakee, 111. It Is said that, as a result
of tho consolidation, tho road will at once he ex
tended from tho present terminus at Templeton
eastward 18 miles to Lafayette. Its trains now
use tho track of tho Lafayette, Muncio & Bloom
ington Road, between Templeton and Lafayette.
Tho Indianapolis, Cincinnati it Lafayette Com
pany will then have a road 253 miles long, from
Ciuciunati to Kankakee.
GOING INTO IRON.
The officers of tho Louisville, Now Albany &
Chicago Railroad are considering a plan for ex
tending tho business of tho Company, and also
entering tho iron business. According to tho
plan, several short branches are to bo built from
tho main lino to coal-minoa in Martin, Owen,
and Groono Counties, in Indiana, and to tho iron
deposits in Martin, Monroe, Putnam, and Groono
Counties. In connection with those, blast
furnaces will bo built at Now Albany, Ind., and
extensive coal depots established in New Albany
and Louisville.
« THE LAKE SUPERIOR IRON REGIONS.
The largely increased issue of mining scrip in
tho Lake Superior region is creating serious
omhniTnsssmonts. Orders ore Ailed by Chicago
and Eastern merchants, and payments made m
currency that cannot easily bo redeemed. Iron
money is decidedly at a discount. It is one of
tho incidents of tho financial crisis
that this region, eo boundlessly rich
in natural resources, Is suddenly impov
erished because its hitherto desirable product is
a drug upon tho market. Tho Marquette. Hough
ton A Ontonagon Railroad has, perhaps, in
creased tho embarrassments by issuing its own
sight drafts, payable In Now York, whither they
will bo scut for redemption before tho Company
has received much benefit from the issue. Ad
ded to tho general depression is tho inconven
ience caused by tho unexpected petering out of
tho iron ore business. When Gov. Bagloy, last
summer, announced that tho Snult Sto. Mary’s
Canal would bo closed on Nov. 14, there was a
terrific howl throughout tho Peninsula, and loud
throats of secession from Michigan wore made.
Sinco tho panic and tho decline of iron, their in
dignation has vanished with tho business, and
they would not now object wore tho canal to ba
closed next week. Tho total shipments of ore
and pig-iron thus far this season are; From
Marquette, 530,000 tons; and from Escanaba
470,440 tons, making a total of about ono-half
tho amount tho mine-owners last winter con
fidently predicted would bo shipped this season.
Despite this unprofitable aspect, tho mania to
secure mineral lands suffers little abatement, and
parties are as keenly on tho look-out
for now discoveries as they were one year ago
when a hard-ore vein was a mine of wealth!
Many of the mining companies have largely re
duced their working force, and all have lessoned
tho wages of those retained 2U to 25 per cent.
i'ROM THE COPPER REGION
more encouraging reports are received. Al
though copper has dccliuod considerably, the
companies fool able to continue operations dur
ing tho winter without materially reducing ox
pouditurcH. Tho October product of tho largest
mine—tho Calumet and Uoola—was 1,200 tons,
and ot tho Quincy 140 tons. Tho product of tho
former is now being transported over tho recently
oomplotedl narrow-gauge railroad to tho stamp
nulls at Hancock, opposite Houghton, —a dis
tance of 12 miles. This road, built by local
parties, and entirely paid for as fast as con
structed, is aheady represented to ho doiup a
good paying business.
