SUPREMACY. Hie Relative Circulation of "The Tribune” and Its Morning Contemporaries. The Only Paper of General Circu lation in the City of Chicago. Row It Beads the “Times” and “Inter-Ocean ” All Over Town. (Riy It Is the Greatest Advertising Medium In the Western Country. Hr. George C. Cooper, having bad occasion, in be course of bis business as a canvasser, to call at nearly every business block, warehouse, store, factory, office, shop, and saloon la the city, as rell as at a considerable number of dwellings n the residence quarters, has carefully in quired what morning caper, if any, the occu pants and residents subscribe for. The result sf Ins inquiries from Jan. 17 to April 25 he baa famished The Tribune, and it is given below to detail On comparison-of his figure* with those of The Tribune circulator, who has ffiarge and control of the subscription lisle, pving his orders by wholesale, we find Mr. Cooper’s report to bo accurate. The compari son which the figures afford of the circulation of Tub Tribune • with that of the other nty morning journals will make clear why it is jhftt Tpk Tribune retains the immense prepon derance of the advertising patronage, and why kdvertisors find it to their interest to advertise in to Tribune. Its circulation is not of the pack-alley sort, nor dependent upon occasional sensational or scandalous articles. It is read regularly by business men, manufacturers, mer chants. and reputable citizens who have suf ficient interest in the news to subscrioe regu larly for their paper, and who, to get the news in reliable shape, subscribe for The Tribune. I a the character of the constituency of a news paper that determines the quality of its circula tion and its corresponding value as an advertis ing medium. Beiders m the slums and back dleys who occasionally invest a nickel in a news paper are not the class whom advertisers desire to reach. Business men, manu facturers, merchants, and substantial, re futable citizens who can afford to take iheir paper regularly, subscribing for it an fiuuiy, are precisely the people advertisers would reach. Such precisely, as the figures dis pose, are tfao readers of The Tribune ; adver tisers know it even without having the figures before them, which is why they find it pays to tdrortise in The Tribune.

There are sev eral parties in the city looking for similar in vestments, we are told, and negotiations are in progress that may result in heavy sales. Great activity is now to be seen in the rent market, and tbe energies of real estate dealers are 'mainly absorbed in that work. There will be a conbiderable number of tbe more expensive tenements left vacant after the first of May, bat the moderate priced houses have nearly all been taken, and there is a demand for more. In the business district, the prospect is that all the stores will be taken; there will be soma left vacant on outlying streets, where they have been bnilt too far in advance of trade. The principal sales of tbe week were a a fol lows : H. 8. Everhart has Bold three marble-front houses, northeast corner of Thirty-tirst street and Cottage Grove avenue, la the Higdon tract, for E. 0.

The avalanche of legal sales continues to de press the real estate market, and almost dis courages holders from offering anything even at low valuations. This is the more to ue restat ed os various causes are gradually combining to give an impetus to the market, and would al ready have their effect if we bad only a cessa tion of the interminable foreclosure sales. The positive announcement made in another colomn that local trains will be run on and after May 15th on the side-track of the Fourth avenue im provement; the significant measures now pending before the Legislature, as explained in our Albany correspondence ; tne increased desire to build, as noticeable from our list of projected buildings during the past two weeks, —all these causes would ere this have made themselves felt in the market if there was only a let-up in the foreclosure proceedings. As it is, the legal sales bid fair to retain posses sion of the Exchange Salesroom, the long list for next week’s sales showing no diminution of, if not an increase in, the number. Bat these sties ought to attract more the attention of in vestors. Among those announced for next week, for instance, the sale on Tuesday by Mr. Ken nelly of one-fifth interest In valuable property along One Hundred and Thirty-eighth, One Hundred and Tlrrty-nlntb, One Hundred and Fortieth, One Hundred and Forty-first, One Hundred and Forty-second streets. Fifth and Sixth avenues, offers an opportunity where, no doubt, for a small amount the buyer can secure an interest in property bound to enhance at the first revival of prosperity. It would be re freshing to see capitalists whose money is lying idle nowadays take advantage—*• just once,” as Mr. Greeley used to say—of the bargains almost daily offered at the Exchange Salesroom.”— Nev> York Real Estate Record* ARTISTIC TAILOKtNG- Ximcly Advice to Gentlemen of Econ omy and Good Taste. There is a great deal of truth in the assertion that “ clothes make the man.” It must have happened in almost everybody's experience that the sheen of a new and stylish suit has brought him more favors and greater attention wherever he went than any amount of personal application was able to obtain. This may not bo very credit* able to human nature, but it is true, neverthe less, aod It is worth the while of everybody to clothe himaelf neatly and in good taste. To do this of course ho must employ the services of an experienced and skilled tailor, and while upon this subject we wish to recommend a gentleman in the profession who, both by bis experience in i bis and foreign cities, and his peculiar adaptabil ity to his • business, has gained the reputation of being one of the leading merchant tailors in this country, \Ve rater to Hr. 2?.

Sev eral years since be united bis fortunes with a prominent Chicago borae. but some four years ago he embarked in business for himself, and immdiatoly drew about him a very large trade on account of his previous reputation for excellent taste and good work. Mr. Mollan’s establish ment claims pre-eminenco for three especial reasons. First, his stock is of the finest quality of imported goods. Second, all the work that leaves his establishment is dono in the finest possible style. Finally, bis prices are very rea sonable, being at least 10 per cent less than those of any other first-class tailor in Chicago.
