A General Dullness in Land Speculation in Acres. Advance in Suburban Pares Under tie New Eail road law. A Fair Volume of Legitimate Easi ness is Sales of Suburb an Lots. Cornell, Washington Heights, Engle wood, and the Northwestern Suburbs. Auction Sales Last Week— Forthcoming Ones. Transfers for the Week. There 1b lea* than usual to say about real estate this week. Speculation in outside lauds, which has been a prolific source of items for three or four mouths up to about the middle of the current month, seems to hare almost ceased-' The furore to get hold of acres in the district west of the Great Eastern Railroad and south of the South branch, anywhere in the towns of Lake and Worth, has been suc ceeded by an apathy that borders on disgust, and we hear of instances in which parties who made bargains In the specu lative excitement two mouths ago, who are now willing to consider their trades “ off,* 1 and would like to take back the S2OO, S3OO, or SSOO they paid then to u bind tbe bargains," until abstracts could be examined and papers for the formal transfer of the land mads out. Two months ago, when we pointed out the entirely speculative character and probable temporary duration of the excitement in regard to land in that particular quarter, we were subject to some unfavorable criticisms from persons whoso interest it was to stimulate the excitement. The present dull ness justifies what we said at that time. But in saying that the excitement. is over it should not be understood that there has been any decline in priced- .Land in that direction is worth just as much as it ever was, and tbe prospects of its being made accessible by the build ing of the Danville & Vincennes Rail road are just as good as they evei were—perhaps better—but the chances of bay ing one day and selling the next day or the next week at 10 to 25 per cent advance have disap peared. In thia respect, however, the case of the district referred to is not very different from that of others in almost any direction around the suburbs, only that in other quarters improve ments are being made, railroads are being built, carriage and wagon-roads are being macadamized or graveled, houses are being built drains, are being dug, and additional value is steadily being given to the land by reason of its being made available for occupation. STOinr ISLAND ATX2TDX , has now been graveled and made as good ft c&5- riago-road as the South Park boulevards all the way to Seventy-fifth street —as far south as Cor nell. It is now only about an hour’s drive from, say Twenty-second street, south on South Park. avenue, down the Grand Boulevard to the Park, thence across to the Hyde Park Station, thence south on Stony Island avenue to Cornell. The whole distance is as smooth a carriage-road as can be found in the environs-of any city*. This summer it is only a delightful suburban drive, but at the eud of the route one can look four miles further south and see the smoke-stacks and roofs at South Chi cago. an objective point toward which tbe city is surely growing. Kow, the houses between Hyde Park Station and Cornell are few ana far be tween ; five or six years from now the whoI« route will be lined with. houses, and the im portance of the Calumet Harbor to the lake traffic of Chicago will be realized. ADVANCE IK SUBURBAN VASES. The new Railroad law appears l*ke a cloud is the horizon of suburban real estate speculation. The Illinois Central has already raised its rates for suburban fares, and other roads will doubt* leas soon follow its example. There are, how 1 * ever, several of the beet hind of reasons whj tM« cannot be permanent. First, it Is an abso* lute necessity that people in a crowded city should hare every possible means of easy and cheap transit to the suburbs, where homes are to be had cheap. Boston only fell in with the pro* gresaive spirit of the times when she got the Legislature of Massachu setts to pass the Cheap Suburban Fare law. which obliges every railroad running out of that city to carry suburban passengers at the present extraordinary low rates in the vicinity of that city. Second, the railroad companies them selves want to encourage suburban travel, as it is one of the most profitable classes of their business. Whether the new railroad law is re pealed or modified by the next Legislature in tbi* State, or whether it is evaded, as it can be, there is reason to believe that the advance of suburban fares cannot be permanent. ABOUND THE SUBURBS. Kothwithstanding the general decline in specu lation In suburban lands, there is much activity yet in the five or six most prominent suburbs, both in the sale of lota and in the erection of buildings. at oomretn, the tool factory hae just received its roof, end fifteen or twenty new dwellings scattered around it and the watch factory are Just near enough completed to require the painters.
