REAL ESTATE MATTERS.
The Closing Year of the Century
Lively One in Real Etate
The real e-tate business in Holt coun
ty for the year. WOO, tins . been a very
lively one, and shows a remarkable one
in large deals. The value of releases for
the year exceed those of any year since
1895, -while the amount of warrant ami
quit claim transactions are witliin
000 of what they were in 18:iT.
The mortgage business has lieen
rather lively from the fact that there
has been a great deal of refunding.
Mortgages drawing seven per cent were
paid off and new mortgages at live h.t
cent filled their places The cheapness
of money and the general bus-mass ac
tivity has also resulted in quite a num
ber of mortgages lx'ing tiled. A large
number have been paid oIT, esieci illy
mortgages on small farms that had been
running a long tuu:. The mortgages
recorded exceed largely those of any
year for the past 10 years; this was
caused by the mortgage of the Missouri
& Kansas Telephone company for SI
250,000, and deducting this from the to
tals it leaves the home transactions

Of th 3 C51 warranty and quit claims

The transactions throughout the year
show healthy prices in almost every
deal, all selling at better prices than
they would have done several years ago.
Mr. Weller, our obliging recorder of
of deeds, has extended every courtesy
to ns enabling us to thus compile the
data for this article. He keeps a beau
fulset of records, and he will go out of
his way to accommodate.
We do not look for very heavy real
estate transactions for the first few
months, of the present year, especially
in mortgage business, on account of the
third constitutional amendment, which
undoubtedly will cause foreign and
local loaners to go "shy," for a while,
until they find "where they are at."
The court will wind up its business
for the January term on tomorrow, Sat
urday. Most all the officers of the
court, excepting the sheriff, have been
Bomewhat indisposed caused by the pre
vailing malady, lagrippe, and while
it was holding its grip on the court, the
court was holding on to the bar, jurors,
and witnesses, with an equally firm grip
until the docket should be cleared.
The "hangonativeness" of Judge Craig
is certainly commendable, and there
were but few continuances, and these
only were granted for the best of rea
sons. The Sentinkl desires to say in "lan
guage most plain" that Holt county, or
any other county for that matter, never
had a more accommodating, careful or
pains taking official than Mr. Hogrefe.
The most exciting case disiosed of at
this term was that of the State vs. the
McGinnis brothers, and their excellent
characters which was clearly establish
ed in the trial, was an important factor
in securing their acquittal. It is only
another illustration of the importance
of maintaining a good reputation while
you are are journeying on this earth it
comes handy should you accidentally
get into trouble: besides you may need
it when you try to pass St. Peter's gate.
The case was submitted to a jury com
