Bernhard”: Wonderful Houses-
The Tall Buildings Again—A
“lull: Through the Expo
sition Ground.-
Spceial Cmresponderfce ol‘. the Tlibune:
CHICAGO, Oct. 20, 1891.—The question of
high buildings came up again in the coun
cil a few nights ago and before the public
settiee committee of the real estate board.
The latter decided to recommend to the
board that the height of buildings in Chi
cago be limited to twice the width of the
street on which it is located, the height in
no case to exceed 135 feet. The doctors are
of the almost unanimous opinion that the
exclusion 0; light and air which results
from the erection of tall buildings is cer—
tainly detrimental to health, and certainly
these tall, narrow structures with their flat
roofs are most unsightly objects. Archi
tects say that the danger is not what Gen.
Fitzsimmons apprehends, but thecertainty
that the contractors will skin on the iron
and on this and that, and some day there
will be a collapse. k
Bernhardt last week performed Cleo
patra to $4500 houses, with four matinees.
The average receipts throughout the en
gagement have been $3503. Sardou’s Cleo
patra is pageantry instead of poetry, but
for compensation there is Bernhardt in
her most sinuous lposes. She receives, it is
said, SIOO for can representation, so that
the fortnight’s exvzagement in Chicago,
twelve evenings a.m. slx niatinees. will net
her SIB,OOO.
THE EXPOSITION GROUNDS.
’l‘he bracing atmosphere led me to a long
walk around the exposition grounds and a
busy scene indeed met my eye. Seven or
eight buildings in course of erection, among
them, the VVoman’s building, Horticultural
hall, the Mining building, Fisheries, the
Forestry department, and the Manufac
tures and Liberal Arts. This last combi
nation alone, covering forty acres. Alarge
force of men were yesterday employed in
breaking soil in the park proper grounds,
the portion heretofore given up to the
amusement and recreation of the public
for the art building, to be soon followed, in
the vicinity, by the English and German
structures. An editorial in the morning
Tribune says: “The reason Wh y sales
around Jackson Park are scarce, 15 that
nobody in that vicinity wants to
sell. All the large owners either
will not sell under any consideration and
refused to ut a price on their land. or else
name a vagze that takes the land out of
market. A well known broker says: “You
would be surprised if you knew the num
ber of applications we have received for a
space around the World’s fair’site during
the next two years. If all the firms that
expect to sell and display goods outside of
of the fair grounds were brought together
on one piece of land, I dare say they would
take up nearly as much space as the fair it
self. 'i‘llere are are many firms who do not
care to be governed by the restrictions that
must necessarily be enforced on the fair
grounds. Only a short time ago an appli
cation was received from an Eastern firm
who want a space of ICU by 600 feet, located
as near as possible to the
MAIN ENTRANCE or THE Mm.
Another firm wants 2( 3 by 300, and still
another 100 by 180 feet all want more space
than can possibly be allotted to them in
the exposition and that is the reason thev
want outside accommodations. Dr. Wir
loughby bought 40 acres at Stony Island
avenue and bixty-eighth street in 1879 at
S6OO an acre, or $28,( '3 altogether. A few
months ago he leased two corners of it.
each 100 by 100 feet, for a total rental of
$22,503. In other words he receives nearly
as much rent for half an acre for two years
as the entire tract cost him. The same will
be true of nearly every other desirably lo
catedtract in that vicinity. Now prices
have gone up on Stony Island to $5 I.) a
foot. and one of the corners is being held
at SISOO a foot, and croakers‘ are silent.
REAL ESTATE MEN
generally approve of the action of the
real estate board in postponing discussion
on the question of restricting the weight
of buildings—small wonder that property
owners prefer to build Skyward. rather
than laterally, since land in close proxim
ity to these monoliths in the business cen
ter sells for $10,090 to $12,033 per foot.
This is‘the last occasion I shall have to
address my many Olymnia friends through
your columns, from Chicago, as I go south
probably next Week, to re—join my son.
Blease send my copy of THE TRIBUNE to
me at Bay St. Louis, Miss., meanwhile I
bid a. kind farewell to one and all from
this wonderful city which has been my
pleasant home for nearly six monoths. H

Philadelphia Record: A fashionably
dressed lady had just finished making a
purchase in a Chestnut street jewehy store
on Saturday when another lady entered.
“What are you doing here 'l’” inquired the
latest comer.
“Oh, I’ve been buyingr my husband the
sweetest liLLle present,” confided the for
mer lady. "Tomorrow is my husband’s
birthday, and I am going to give him such
a delirjhtful surpriset I have bought him
a handsome new gold watch in place of his
old one for only $15.1.”
> Just then the clerk approached.
“Shall I charge that?” he inquired.
“Ofcourse,” was the-reply. “L, 0 Mr. ———.”
