Quite a few of the property owners were opposed to the layout and will claim damages'., . ; Thsmas Fitzsimmohs was one of the principal objectors. He was In favor of the layout from Woodlawn terrace to Cooke street, but objected strenu ously to any change from Hillside ave- live. to V oodlawu terrace.

Hillside avenue to: Woodlawn ten-nee should re" main as it is. The old. layout calls for a fifty-five foot street and 1 see no reasun why we should reduce it to l tty.. We want the street as wide as possible. Pine street from W.oodliwn terrace to Cooke street is but forty feet wide, and on that account I'm in favor of making it fifty. I object, to reducing the present width at any poini." M:s W. H. Richardson, who cwus about lr.O feet above Woodlawn ter race, said she was opposed tV the lay opt provided any land should be taken from her to widen the street. "The street." she said, "was laid out In 1S.",7 to a width i .' fitly feet, and my mother came Into l.-cssession cf what I own there- in 1851. At that time there wefe mil fences ti;eie. shovin- a fifty foot ft'-et. I lemeiehcr the old fences 'my self. Later on the- fern-- epposite tmr nlai-e was torn down nnd a atcne w.i'l lnMlt at least twelve feet int.i the street. There are people living te-daywho re member wbrt-e the old rail fence stood. I think F. -I. Kingsbury could tell all abort it. I believe- the street ought to I be fifty feet wide, hrt if I have tn nti ibute anythimr towards it I shall j cl.'';n damrt'.rts. - The ininal layc.nl culled fr" f'-fty 'feet. What has be-: ccn'e of it ?" Mr ' Cairns: "Oh. there's nothinf wonderful about that. I know of eti'-'ca wl-ere streets were laid out ten rods wide and when the city got to them it riad to nay damages in order to secure e"ough land to make a forty foct street." "I think that layout is all right." said Wallace t'fimp. "and I'm glad to see it is enniin-. Y'e tried to get some thing like tint before but the petition wa- picoon-bob-d and we never could Ihi.l out what hanpened it." Kngiucer Cairns tyngrilyi: "What's l be lli'e makiiiii such a statement as that. ' It can't be ncssible but you re member why it did not go through." Mr Camp: "That's what the former elvrk told me." ' ' Mr Cah-ps: "There was no pi-jeon-hnling about it at al'. The property owners objected so strenuously to the change it was not deemed advisable to nr.oceed with the work." Mr Oa'mn: "I have no recollection of being cited in to a. hearing on the matter. V.ti't I do know that I called aio-vud to Iniuhe what h:ul been done in tlie premises and the former clerk. Mr Grady, .informed me that the peti tion had been pigeon-holed." Mr Cairns: "T don't know anything about that, hut I do know that the layout, in question fell through at a previous hearing because the people didn't .want it." ' 1 There was no opposition to a ten- fcot building line. C. A.

Nov. 23.--Frantic efTorts are being made by shorts caught in the Pliillips turn ccimr to swamp' hiui with grain on the last ilay of the option. The way iti which thty hope to down him and jret themselves out of a' tight place is by rchispcction of this week's receipts, which have bexn grr.Ued No. 3. one grade too low to puss on contract. Another scheme wbkh has boon evolv ed for the purpose :f swamping Phillips is the repurchase a ad shipment to Chica go of coin whith was sold by the Pattens in Er.ffalo and Montreal wheu, they went oat cf ti: deal in October. Fifty-cue cents marked up on the board yesterday was a new high price in tiu November dor.!. Phillip: came into the pit early and lifted tho price from 40 cents, where it opened. Between 50 and 51 ceuts he unloaded 200.000 bushels, his total rales for ths day being 240.000 bushels. As he io selling corn bought at 30 cents his day's transactions netted hiui a profit better than C25.00J. Other days this wccl; arc said to have been equally profitable to hici. Yesterday's close was 50 cents. Big foreigners, who. it ;s said, chiefly constitute the short inter si, .are still hanging on s tabborn!;,-. Predictions' tire freely made that the last day of the den I will see November corn p:oted at 75 cents. . "This deal differs from ethers." said Philiips. "in that I have handled it -entirely r.iyr elf. All th buying aufl sell ing has been done in the open pit, and I have hired no broke: s to hoodwink the' crowd. I have known all aiong how bis the short ihtercst was and who was short. They have ;dso k::ov.u how much corn I had." ' The contract corn in Chicago is about 1,500.001) bushels. The inspection sheet was again a disappointment to the bears, showing only S7.0UO bushels transferred from private public elevators.. Only 57 out of 00 ca:s arriving wore No. 2, and only 1,10,000 bushels of contract corth No. 2, were added to the. total in Chicago. Tfcrc-e TZoya BIo"ii to I'leces. WHEELING.' Nov. 28.
