REAL ESTATE. The Suburban Speculative Fever Cooling Down a Little. The Belt-Railroad and Otter Suburban. Matters, Tenement Houses Versus Su burban Homes. Recent Sales of City Residences and Suburban Acres. Transfers for the Week. -There has boon a great deal of trading ”in jptiona ” andcontracte to sell land in the specula tive district west of Washington Heights daring the past ten days. There have,, however, been very few actual. transfers of the fee of tho land. People do not seem to wont tho land so much as they do something to speculate in, and tbeso ” contr&cts-to-eell ” seem to furnish theeamo sort of speculative pabulum as the options on wheat and com for future delivery, which fur nish bo largo a part of the business of tho Board of Trade. Wo hear of but ono actual transfer of in that quarter during tho past week, viz; a tract of 40 acres In northwest of southeast of Section 26, Town of Lake, being four miles. directly west, and ono mile south of the Normal School, at SSOO per acre, terms }£ cash and balance in one, two, and throe years. This land is just two iniles south west of the'nearest railroad station—.South. Lynne, on the Great Eastern Railroad. This sale affords not only on index of the present range of prices in all the surrounding district for a mile or two north and south of it, but fur nishes another instance of tho recent. rapid ad vance in prices in that quarter in the fact that the price which this sold for is jnist the same as was asked for the land immediately at South Lynne six months ago. Thia shows that the prices .of six . months ago are now asked for lands two miles further from the city, arid at least two miles further from any jneans of communication with the city. It is, of course, understood that the poshing out of tho speculative fever into this district is based entirely on the expectation of a railroad being built through it this summer. As men tioned last week, we are unable to trace this ex pectation to anything bat talk. It is an old say ing that “ Talk is talk, bat it takes money to buy land! ” This does not quite hold good in con nection with land in the district south of the South Branch and west of the Great Eastern Railroad, and it might also be changed to read “ Talk is talk, but it takes money to build rail roads.” THE BELT-SUBU2BAN BA7T.UOAP. There are now not less than half-a-dozen su burban railroad projects being talked of: One is to build a belt-railroad around the city outside the city limits. Another belt railroad is also talked of, in which it is proposed to utilize a great Sort of the present tracks that run in the general irectionof the projected line, viz: the new branch line of the Northwestern Company from Irving Park south to the new car shops in Sec. 10; thence east on Kinzie street to the line of the Great Eastern, on Rockwell street; thence south on tho Great Eastern .track to Brighton; thence east on the Stock-Yards track along Fortieth street to the lake shore; and, pos sibly, by some arrangement with tho Il linois Central Company, thence north along the lake shore to the depot at foot of Bake street. It will be seen that these tracks already furnish a continuous line from the Illinois Cen tral depot southward along the lake shore and around the city to Irving Park. By building four miles more of track from Irving Park, or some point south of it, to tho lake shore at Lake View, this route would furnish a belt railroad entirely around the city. 'Whether there would be busi ness enough to support such a road would de pend on what use the main-trunk railroads en tering the city from every direction could make of it m the transfer of freight cars, etc. It is not probable that the suburban passenger travel on. this circuitous route would amount to much ; but, as the tracks are already built, except the four miles from Irving Park to the lake shore, it would not cost much to try the experiment, if the railroad companies. owning the different tracks could agree upon a plan, and would put a train on the road. ' The Union Stock-Yards Company have a charter which gives them the tight to build a railroad almost anywhere outside the city limits, and the Directory of this Compa ny is composed of officials of nearly all the rail roads that .enter the city: so that, if it can bo made to appear that a belt railroad would 'find business euongh to Justify its' operation (which is doubtful), they will probably supply such short links as are requisite. Even if none of tbe exclusively suburl&h rail-, roads now being talked of are built, the entrance of at least three more main-trunk lines now be ing built, viz : the Baltimore & Ohio, Canada Southern, and Chicago & Pacific, will so largely increase the area of suburban lands available for residence or manufacturing purposes that, not withstanding the rapid increase of our popula tion, Chicago will continue to be the most thinly populated city in the world. Instead of being an objection, this will always be an advantage, because it will keep the prices of land low enough to the ownership of a home within the reach of even poor men. This, in turn, helps to make the population more permanent, and furnishes the never-failing supply ~of labor ne cessary for the permanent establishment of the manufacturing industries. - A CO-OPERATIVE UTOPIA. We print the following because it is the “ other side of the question,” but do not agree with it for the reasons appended: To the Editor o/The Chicago Tribune: Bin: There is probably no more important matter in all the realm of domestic economy than that of pro viding better bouses for the common people to live In. 1 am willing to take tho responsibility of the follow ing statements upon this question; That the mass of oar inhabitants live in houses which are actually unfit as dwelling-places for intelli gent beings. That such places are Incapable of being properly ventilated, and at the same moment serve inhab itants as comfortable and healthful abodes. That tho booses and, of course, the apartments of the same, aro generally altogether too Em«n the h«iia too narrow, snd the structures, inferior as they are in most respects, are too far removed from the centre of the population., That the rents on account of such buildings are div proportionate to the advantages gained by those who are so unfortunate as to have, for the rtma being, no better place of residence. That it costs the people generally twice or thrieg as much money to isolate and spread themselves over the prairie, in the «nwi and miles away from the business centre I That the time spent in street navigation by on classes, especially the working classes, from the vari ons ana too remote distances which .are necessary con sequences of isolation and indiscriminate diffusion, is unnecessarily, • and, I venture to say, unwisely, wasted. That it does not pay for the people to lire in shanties or mere “shills” of houses, and to remain the victims of real estate speculation, while,by uniting their means and building magnificent, substantial, and larger houses onaless number of lota in the heart of the city, is a possible accomplishment. That, for instance, on the basis of the Sherman House, or the Pacific Hotel, the entire mass of inhabi tants spread for miles over the prairie in the West Division of Chicago can be put between Jefferson Street and the river 1 That such a consummation la devoutly to he wished for by the now generally-victimized community, I do not doubt. That human society can ever emerge from' enhealthful and absolutely sensual conditions without being well-housed, I very much doubt. That this whole nutter, in all ies phases, ought to be taken up and considered in earnest by the beet intellect and the most philanthropic men and women of Chi cago. The movement for good and beautiful homes for the people should he more general. O. W. The Utopian dream of providing palaces for the “ common people ”Is a very pleasing one to people who regard themselves as port of the ‘uncommon” people, Xet, in our republican condition of society, the very attempt to define the class of u common” people and separate them from the “un commons *’ in a distinct man ner of living would prevent the success of the scheme. It is natural for human beings to as sert their particular individuality, and every salaried and wage-receiving person, from the cashiorof a bank down to Bridget, in the kitchen Prides himself and herself on being a little dif ferent and haying somewhat different notions of life from anybody else. It is the hope of an opportunity to develop this m dividual!ty and show that he “haa a boo] above buttons,” that draws the emigrant from the old world to America and from tne Eastern States to the West. It is the restiveness under the oppressively well-ordered regulations of the . older countries and cities that sends population 'to Chicago and the West. The opportunity to : gratify certain proclivities, to ride his own little hobbies, and make it apparent to the world in the exterior arrangemont.of his own little house and grounds, gives a vent to certain longings in every man and woman which, if repressed, in ovitablv develop into discontent ana contention ■with the nearest neighbors. Men and women rebel against mica that sink them to a dead ;level with cny mass of. people where the only remaining sign of individuality ia the difference between nnmbera on the idoora of- a • hospital or tenement, or co-operative establishment of any kind. Aside from thia obstacle in human nature, we claim that it is better for society, and for the stability of local and general government, for every man to own his • house. - The man who owns a piece of ground and bnilds his home on it is in his own castle, but he is then also pledged to sustain government, to promote im provements, and help the general progress of society to a greater extent than if himself and family are simply the tenants of a suite of rooms in a hotel or co-operative boarding-house. Again, a house and lot are the only savings-bank in which a vast majority of men can ever buc cccd-in'laying up money. The temptation to spend ready money is too well known to need >ny elaborate discussion to prove that it is nec essaiy for. moat men that they run in debt for something like a house and, lot to assist them in saving money. Many a man in Chicago who is. now well-to-do in tho world, owes it to nothing in the world but tho • continual admonition of a debt that must bo paid at a definite period in the future. The fear of default in hia payment, and a, consequent loss of money, obliges him to save, and spurs him up to action, when otherwise he would squander liis earnings in luxuries or in the idleness of some strike. Co-operation too fre quently runs mad, and becomes only a modified form of tho delusion of Communism, and the ulti mate result of the latter is always onarhey and misery. ‘ ADDITIONAL SUBURBAN TRAINS. : The new time-table of the suburban trains on tho Rock Island Railroad, which went into effect last Monday, is as follows:; Leav& Chicago. 7:00 a. m. 6:50 a. m 12:20 p.m.... 4:15 p.m.... 6:15 p. m... 7:10 p.m i XlffiO p. m(Saturday)... About & week ago an accommodation suburban train was placed on the completed portion of the Chicago & Pacific Railroad, and is now running every afternoon at 8 o’clodc from the eastern end of the. rood, at tho junction of Hoisted street and the North Branch, to River Park (Oazenovia). By the 15th of .next month the trains will run to Elgin. Nothing has been de finitely settled yet as to the continuation of Hie eastern end of the road to any depot nearer tho business centre. It has often been suggested that one of the disadvantages of suburban residence is, that there are too few late trains, and that this pre vents those who live along the lines of road from coming in to evening entertainments in the city. This want, however, will probably be supplied on each of the roads as population be comes large enough to justify all the railroad companies in running 11 o'clock p. zn. trains. THE PEOJECTED CANAL, to start somewhere not for from Eightieth street and Cottage Grove avenue, and to run to the river and connect with the Bouth Chicago har bor, is being revived again. It may or may not be true that the said canal will bo eventually afixedfact. 6UBUBBAN ACHES.
