8 THE curs LAND SALE. TWELVE BLOCKS OF THE DILLON TRACT SOLD FOR $27,890. An Advance of $1,190 Upon the Min imum Valuation The Highest Priced Lots Yot Unsold- -Who the Purchasers Are and What They Paid for the Property. A crowd of a hundred or mom people gathered around City Marshal R. J. Wade when he mounted a rickety table in front of the county court house, yesterday forenoon to sell twenty-five blocks of the Dillon tract. Among those present w ere the members of the Council Committee on City Lots. The land lies between Seventh and Twelfth and Barnard and Fiorance streets. The portion put up for sale comprised per haps a little more thjpi one-halt of the whole tract purchased by the city less than a year ago for $60,000. All of the streets, eleven in number, passing through the original tract were reserved by the city, and also a row of five blocks north of Seventh street and two blocks south of Tenth, between Whitaker and Barnard. The terms were one-fourth cash, one-fourth payable Sept. 1, and the balance in one and two years at 7 pet cent, interest. Under a resolution adopted by the City Council, the Committee on City Lots hud placed a mini mum r. ice on earn block. These minimum values ranged from $BOO to $5,500. according to the locality of the property, and they aggregated $70,000. Some of the blocks contained eight lots, others ten, and still others sixteen. Block A, lying between Barnard and Jef ferson aud Seventh and Eighth, was the first offered. It was supposed to be the most de sirable, and hence the most valuable block for sale. The mininum price was $5,500. The City Marshal called it a number of times, but did not get a bid and it was withdrawn. Block E, bounded by Eleventh and West Twelfth and Hama ixl and Jefferson, was the second put up. It contains ten lots and the mini mum price was $3,000. Mr. C. H. Dorsott started it at $2,000. Someone bid $5O more, and then it raised $lO and $5 at a time until it reached $2,250, when it was knocked down to Mr. Dorsett. After that four blocks were withdrawn before a bid could be obtained. Except in one or two cases there was very little spirit in the bidding. Altogether twelve blocks of the twenty-five were sold, the other thirteen being with drawn because no one would offer the mini- mum price. The result of the sale in detail was as fol lows : First tier, extending north and south be tween Barnard and Jefferson, block A— minimum price ss,soo.withdrawn.

The blocks sold were most!v the ones on the outskirts of the tract. The high priced ones were let clone. What will he done with the unsold portion is undetermined. The city may offer the blocks at private sale or readjust, the minimum prices and put the projierty up again. Thai, however, all depends upon the City Council’s action. REALTY’S LIVELY SALES.

The Cora Van Tassel Company appeared fn “Gyp” at popular prices at the Theatre last, night. “Gyp” has a strong flavor of “M’liss” and “’49.” In fact the situations are strikingly similar and so is tho dialogue. Miss Vau Tassel was the waif of rough ex terior, but kind-hearted and affectionate. Her “Gyp” is not so buxsome and hurelly so rollicking a creation as Annie Pixley’s “M’liss,” but it was clever and improved as the play proceeded. Edwin Young’s “Judge” was amusing and Mr. WooJ worth’s “Fake” w as well done. Cl&rke Earle’s Spunish dialect for “Tor rez,” tlie Mexican, was one of the liest things in the piece. Misses Healey and Lindley, as “Clara” and “Clytio” respectively, were good. To-night thp company will produce “Es meralda,” a delightful drama, based on North Carolina life, the plot lieing deeply Interesting and the story prettily told. Books for the Historical Society. The list of books ordered by the Georgia Hi: torical Society at. its mooting on Monday was too large for publication. It embraced a collection of meritorious works recently printed, and contains t wenty volumes on history, eighteen cf biography, six of 3 ravels, twelve on science, twenty-five novels, and some twenty miscellaneous. \ h ” lection*. WO of the most interesting character. " THROUGH THE CITY. Items Gathered Here and There by the News Reporters. Georgia Chapter R. A. M., will hold a regular convocation to-night.

Robert Waldburg (colored) was sentenced to $5 or ten days for drawing a knife on William Ponder (colored). Three negroes were fined $5 each for gambling in a house on West Boundary. The cutting and repairing of the asphalt paving at the intersection of Bull and Broughton streets has demonstrated the fact that the pavement is not only a sub stantial piece of work and almost as hard as stone, hut that it can lie taken up and relaid without injury, and a better job made than is usually done in similar work on other kinds of pavements. At the Republican Blues’prize drill held at Concordia Park on Monday, Corpl. George Gregor won the company medal. Corpl. Hanlon also won a prize. Sergt. Spann, who lias held the medal for several years, dropped out just before Corpl. Han lon. Private-Carter was the fourth left standing. Corpls. Gregor and Hanlon are recent appointees of Capt. Dixon.

As soon as the lease on the property at the corner of Bull and Hull streets expires it is the purpose of the trustees, to remove the brick walls there awl replace them with an iron fence. The block will then be an ornament to the city. The horses attached to two drays and a wagon belonging to Mr. Theodore Sletfinx, ran off on West Broad street yesterday morning. They were standing at the corner of Perry street when first frightened, and they ran toward the Bay. After going a few blocks the wagon collided with a wagon in which Mr. Henry Bleyert was riding. His wagon was wrecked and ho was thrown out, sustaining painful injuries. The runa ways were sfl ipped about Congress street. Both drays anil the wagon were badly dam aged. CROWNED QUEEN OF MAY. The Children’s Party and Ball at the Guards Arsenal. Two hundred bright-faced, happy little masters and misses danced and romped at their own sweet will through the big drill room of the Guards Arsenal yesterday after noon. It was a children’s May party, and further than seeing that no harm came to the little folks the big ones did not interfere with their amusement. Every May festival must have its queen, and a prettier, statelier little queen than sat upon the flower-canopied throne in the cen tre of the big hall at, the crowning last night could hardly lie found outside of fairyland. At the entrance to the hall were three boxes and into one of them everyone who entered the hall dropped a vote for the queen. There were three candidates in the field for queenly honors, Belle Brandt; daughter of Mr. Carl L. Brandt, Dora Cohen, daughter of Mr. Octants Cohen, and Nina Heyward, daughter of Mr. J. G. Heyward. Nearly 500 votes were cast. Miss Brandt received a majority and was declared queen-elect. The crowning took place at 6 o’clock. The throne was built in tlm centre of the hall underneath a canopy of evergreens and roses. The queen-elect was led up the hall and seated upon the throne by the lily managers, Mrs. W. G. Charlton,’Mrs. L. M. Warfield, Mrs. IV. 11. Daniel and Mrs. J. D. Weed. She chose for her king Mas ter Willie Wade, and with a wave j of her wand signaled him to advance to her side. Her attendants were Dora Cohen and Hearing Harden and Nina Heyward and Jack D’Antlgnae. After the crowning the dance went on until 8 o'clock. By this time the little folks were tired out. At 9 o’clock the ball was to open. It was nearly 10 though before dancing was begun. The queen’s throne was moved to the west end of the hall, and the queen and her attendants remained during the early part, of the evening. The ball was not largely attended, but socially it was a most delightful affair. It was given in aid of the Episcopal Orphan’s Home, and the lady managers are to be congratulated upon its success.

THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 1887. ANOTHER HOTEL EFFORT. A Movement Looking to the Purchase of the Barracks Property. To-morrow night tliff Oglethorpe Real Es tate Company will hold a meeting to dis cuss proposals for the barracks property at Bull and Liberty streets. A number of prominent citizens who are interested in building anew hotel In Savan nah have their eyes on the property, and if they can get it at what they think is a rea sonable price they will put up a hotel on the site, The gentlemen who are interested in the matter will meet to-day and decide what they will do. If the syndicate cannot get it at its price, remarked a gentleman yesterday, the pro ject will fall through. lie went on to say that a few weeks ago there appeared to bo very strong grounds for believing that the long talked of new hotel was at last about to be built. The President and the directors of the Central railroad were anxious to help the movement along. Several of the di rectors were in favor of the company in dorsing the bonds for the hotel. It turned out, however, that such action would lie be yond the power of the railroad company. Mr. H. B. Hollins, of New York, the Cen tral's First Vice President, has said tliat he will subscribe SIO,OOO individually towards the hotel. He believes that anew one will pay- There arc half a dozen Savannah capi talis-ts who arc also willing to put up SIO,OOO a piece for a 200-room hotel that would cost with the site between $350,000 and $300,000. The Central would advance SIOO,OOO for the purpose, one-half to be returned and 6 per cent, bonds to be given for the remainder. The national banks cannot loan money on real estate, and some of the other banks have such a demand on them for money that they are actually borrowing to accomodate the demand. Where to get the" money is therefore a question. The syndicate now moving in the matter believes that anew hotel would pay, but the members are discouraged by the lack of in terest which the public takes. Everybody wants to see anew hotel built, hut very few are willing to subscribe, and locations are held high. The barracks property is said to be held at about SIO,OOO more than the par ties who have the refusal of it want to pay. The Two Calhouns. The New York Tribune has this to say of two prominent directors of the Centra!, who were in the city a day or two ago: “The re cent unveiling of the statue of John C. Cal houn at Charleston recalls the fact that two descendants of that statesman havo lieen for some time in New York business circles. They are John C. Calhoun, of Arkansas, and his brother, Patrick Calhoun. The Ar kansas man is a six-footer of round and heavy figure, with a large round face, swarthy complexion, black moustache and dark eyes, a handsome but (lull-looking man of apparently sluggish temperament. He is a planter in Arkansas, a man of influence in polities, although he has persistently refused to take office, and lias acquired wealth. Patrick Calhouu is a lawyer, slender in proportions, nervous in temperament, with something of the spirit and ways of the young blood of the South in the days before the war. It is said that he has been making a dead set in W all street, and has been both fortunate and unfortunate, after the manner of new comers to that treacherous thoroughfare. He was in the Richmond Terminal" ‘deal,’ and is reported to have made some money. The C.'alhoims live at the New York Hotel, which has a fascination for the Bourbon from the South on account of its record during the war.” Over in Charleston. The Charleston Schuetzenfest will begin to-day. Work on the new artesian well has been suspended for several weeks until new tools and impliments can be brought front the North. The present depth of the well is 1,510 feet. Capt. M. F. Harris, the well-known com mander of the schooner Victor Puig, was tendered a complimentary supper by some of his Charleston friends Monday night in honor of the completion of his thirteenth year of service at that port. The Xewx and Courier of yesterday re ported upon what it deems trustworthy authority, that a strike of the bricklayers in Charleston has been ordered by, the Brick layers’ Union. The object of the movement, it is understood, is to insist upon nine hours’ work instead of the daily ten hours’ service now of force. Railroad Clatter. The following clianges have been made in the railway mail service: On the Wil mington and Jacksonville route, W. J. Car ter, of Marion, has been appointed postal clerk, vice R. R. Cantwell, resigned; J. S. Lewis, of Jacksonville, vice O. B. Burrows, who did not qualify, aud J. M. Dye, of Jesup, vice J. J. tldl, resigned. T. W.

New Orleans and Mobile Yesterday’s Winners —Memphis Refuses to Play With Diostel as Urrsqire and Forfeits a Game to Na3hville-Savannah to Return Home this Week. The home club has played fourteen league games this year and out of that number has won two. The way things aro going now it looks very much as though that number will be the limit. Yesterday’s game at Now Orleans resulted 5 to 3 in favor of tho Policans. The umpire was blamed for part of the defeat, but from the score it looks very much as if Savannah was outplayed. Murray did not make a very brilliant showing, hut that is accounted for by his lack of practice. The club will play in New Orleans to-day and to-morrotv and then return home. The opening games will be on Saturday, Mon day, Tuesday and Wodesday, with Charles ton. What the result will be is not very difficult to guess. The present outlook for the Southern League is not at all bright. Memphis has become involved in a quarrel with Nash ville and threatens to withdraw. Mobile has been shaky from tho start, and is not to bo counted on to finish the season, and very little interest is taken in the game here. New Orleans, Charleston and Nashville are the only clubs that seem to lie at all certain of the future. What the outcome of the Memphis row will be remains to be seen. If Memphis drops out the league will have hard work to pull through, and will be very likely to go to pieces. Their Twelfth Defeat. New Orleans, May 3. —Cloudy weather was not conducive to good ball playing, and neither Savannah nor tho locals played bril liantly to-day. Murry played third lm.se for Savannah and was away off. Durmeyer, a local player signed by Savannah, played a fine second base and ran bases well. Both Somers and Aydelotte pitched a fine game. Peltz was the only man to* hit Aydelotte safely, and in one inning tiie latter struck the side out. Somers was very effective, and hold the locals down to three singles and a base op balls. Both sides did nice base running. Errors by Sa vannah in the fli-st inning gave New Or lans a big lead. Savannah played an up-hill game after that, but could not quite get there. The visitors blamed the umpire, but Suck treated them much better than lie did New Orleans. Tho following is tile score: SAVANNAH. a.e. n. Ib. p.o. a. e. Peltz, c. f 4 1 2 3 0 0 Campau.

It was a fly catching game from the start. Mobile taking in twelve flies and Charleston fourteen. Kelly was hit pretty freely, and Smith al most as bad. Errors were few, but runs were made on every one. Charleston devel oped considerable skill in stealing bases. All in ail, tli<* contest, was the prettiest of the series. The score was: MOBILE. A.B.

Memphis, May 6.—There were about 800 disappointed people this afternoon who went out to the ball jiark in anticipation of wit nessing a game between Nashville and Mem phis. President Ram T. Carnes, of the Mem phis club, had telegraphed President Morrow iiis objections to Diestol acting us umpire. President Morrow telegraphed til reply that if Capt. Carnes and James Clinton, field captain of the Nashvilles, could agree upon an umpire the game n light be played. (Tiu ton, however, declined to act, giving ns a reason that Bradley was the manager of the Nashville club. Memphis offered to play anil let any member of the Nnshvillo team umpire the game. This proposition was duclmod. Nashville wanted Diestol and would not name nny other person. Memphis then refused to play and Diestol gave the galhe to Nashville by a score of 9 to 0. Capt. Carnes this afternoon again telegraphed President Morrow that if he insisted on Diestol umpiring the games here lie might consider Memphis ns having withdrawn from the league.

The Signal Service Observations Dur ing the Second Month of Spring. The Signal Service reports sent out by the War Department give sonio very interest ing information in regard to the weather during April. The temperature for the month was slightly above the normal in the Mississippi valley, and Westward, over the Rooky mountain regions, to the Pacific coast. Tho greatest departures from the normal were reported in the central Mississippi and lower Missouri valleys. The temperature was also slightly above the normal in Tennessee and Kentucky and the Northern portion of the Gulf States. In the districts on the At lantic coast, and in the upper Ohio valley and lower lake region it was slightly below the normal. The rainfall for the month was generally below the normal in the districts east of the one hundredth meridian, except in Central Missouri and thence eastward to West Vir ginia, and from Southern Minnesota east ward to Northern Michigan, and at isolated stations on the immediate Atlantic coast, where the rainfall has been slightly in ex cess. The drought continues in Southern Texas, and the region of the greatest deficiency in rainfall extends from Eastern Texas to the South Atlantic coast, where the departures range from two to six inches below the normal. There has also been a deficiency, ranging from one to three inches, from the Central Missouri valley eastward over lowa, Northern Illinois, Southern Missouri, South ern Michigan and Northern Indiana. Slight deficiencies are also reported in Northern Minnesota and Northern Dakota and in the central portions of California, the defleienej' at stations in the Sacramento valley amounting to about one inch, where the average rainfall for the month is about three inches. At Rocky mountain stations, in extreme Northern Texas, and thence northward to Dakota the rainfall has been slsghtly in excess. On the Pacific coast and in Southern California the rainfall has been slightly in excess of the normal, and in Oregon tlie excess ranges from 0.8 inch at Roseburg to 1.8 inches at Portland. The only stations reporting snow remaining on the ground at the end of the month were Salt Lake City one inch and Mount Wash ington two inches. The month opened with a storm on the Atlantic coast central near Eastern Florida, with snow extending as far south as North Carolina on the Ist and 2d. This storm moved rapidly northward and developed great energy on the New England coast during tho 2d, causing severe gales from Norfolk northward to Nova Scotia. On the 12th a disturbance developed in Western Texas and moved northward to Southern Dakota, attended by general rains over Northern Texes and the eastern slope of the Rocky mountains. On the lfith a storm w as observed in West ern Texas, which moved northeastward over the Ohio valley and thence eastward over the Middle Atlantic States during the 18th ami l'.ttn, attended by heavy rains in the Ohio Valley and dangerous easterly gales on the Middle Atlantic coast on the 18th. One of the most severe storms observed dur ing the month was central in the Rocky mountain regions on the 21st. It moved slowly eastward, causing destructive local storms in Missouri and adjoining States during the night of the 21st, and passed over the Lake regions on the 22d and 23d, at tended by severe gales. The fifth severe storm of the month was central in the Gulf south of New Orleans on the 24th. It moved rapidly norteastward, following the coast line, increasing in energy during the 25th, caus ing severe gales from Norfolk northward to Nova Scotia on the 28th. The sixth severe storm of the month was observed north of Montana on the 28th and moved southeast ward to the low'er lake region, and thence eastward over New England, where the direction of movement changed to the north ward, and at the end of the month it was central near Eastport, but was apparently decreasing in energy, with increasing pres sure at tbe centre of tho disturbance. The most severe cold wave of the month was observed in Northern Montana on the 2d, and extended eastwasd over the Ohio valiey during the 4th, causing the tempera ture to fall from 20° to 40° from the Gulf States northward to tho lake regions. This cold wave reached the Atlantic coast on the sth, attended bv a fall of temperature of from 20° to off 5 in the Middle Atlantic States. Mason & Hamlin Pianos. The new’ mode of piano construction, in vented anil introduced by Mason & Hamlin in 1882, is an assured success, tested and proved, many of the l>est judges having pro nounced it "the greatest improvement in pianos of the century.” By ft musical tones of remarkable brightness and purity are oli tained, and tuning is required less than one quarter as often as in the old system. An illustrated catalogue, fully explaining the improvements, will be sent fl ee to any ad dress A Nice Custom.
