Secretary Scott Submits Fig-, urea Proving That Old City Is Growing Newer. it G00DFELL0WS," IN AMBULANCE, READY FOR EMERGENCY WHILE ON NEW YEAR'S ROUND Six of "Exclusive" Set Prefer to Return as They Start, Rather Than to Abandon Carriages Verses Announce Their Appearance. hifA ' tvry$ f-fcf t, I ' ' i f T f 'J The annual report of the St. Louis Real Estate Exchange, compiled by Secretary Raymond G. Scott, furnishes nioBt interesting data for the students of municipal conditions. The veal estate sold in 1909 was a trifle less than in the preceding year, ( but tnis can oe annuuicu w .oa... that many deeds are recorded at only a nominal fee. The transfers show a gain over 1908. The loans show an enormous increase, demonstrating that the average investor is seeking this field for securing his money. The statistics of the Building Commissioner for the last j year establishes a new record, a notable fact being that twenty-four mercantile and office buildings were begun in 1909. A number of the building permits were for structures costing over $100,-000. Permits for municipal improvements will run nearly five million dol-'lara. ! FEWER VACANCIES IV FLATS. ' Mr. Scctt gives enthusiastic reports ' the Million Population Club when ,he writes that there are fewer va-1 cancies in flats and dwellings man there were earlier in the year, evl-d-ncir-p the fact that the population of St. Louis is gradually increasing. The complete report of the Real Estate Exchange follows: a review of the conditions for 1909 - shows a gradual and constant increase i ..-,. .m naa 'inn i .iniLeiiuiai yr experienced an aroused public! our city already famous for the num-rntin-ent and soirit of progress, and.ber and beauty of its fine resioences. lone3." ale inaugurated -A 9 to maKe lor mo b"" .v. v - - The "GoJdfellows." a social organization limited to i membership of seven, observed the annual custom of making New Year s calls on the friends of the members Siturday. The "Goodfellows" had the edge on many of the other New Year's callers, who start out in a carriage or auto and come, home in an ambulance. They started out !n an ambulance a nice, new, bright, shiny Red Cross ambulance. There were only six in the party, the seventh member John Hogan, being out of town. At all the houses visited they paid their respects in the following yerses, printed on a card bearing their photographs: Our little friend, BUI Sanders, Who falls in love with ganders; Who falls in love with ganders; He is only the size of a kid.

Western Slanufacturers' Building Company, which fe?ds a ninety-nine year lease on the property, dating from 1902. i The t"alk estate was the owner of the ground. The consideration was JS7.500. Ths Mortgage Guaranty Trust Company loaned the purchasers. 1 125,000 on the property. The Bern's Bros, Bag Company acquired 130 feet on the west side of Fourth street between Poplar and Cerre streets, last week. The purchasers will erect a large factory on this property. The former owners were Julius "Walsh, Edward Walsh, Mary W. Geraghty, Ellen Humphys and Sallie Sawyer. C. A. Price of Beebe, Ark., pur chased the Paramore Apartments last week for $80,000. The deal involved the transfer of property valued at $115,000. This apartment house was the first one built in St Louis, and rents for $7,200 a year. Another apartment house was sold last week.

"Tho last year has been one of de- v cided conservatism and while the records of real estate transfers for the ' vear show a gain In numbers over the year 1903, the grand total shows a small decrease. This latter showing, however, may be the result of a growing practice to name in the deeds of transfer only a nominal consideration In place of the real, and which is often Jopted even In the larger transac ts. . 1009.' 1908.

RECORD YEAR AHEAD welfare of the inhabitants of our growing city. CITVS BEST IVDEX. "There has been a downward tendency in rents, more especially applicable to flats, modern dwellings always finding the ready tenants at a rental in keeping with their value, location and condition of repair. The closing of the year finds fewer vacancies throughout the city than were to be found during the earlier months. and this notwithstanding the fact that- during the year there has been erected in addition to numerous flats and dwellings, more than twenty apartment buildings, each containing from six to twenty-four apartments and costing from $20,000 to $100,000 each. "There is no better index to a city's growth in population and business than the records of the Clearing House as to the increase in clearings and of the Assessor's office as to the increase in its taxable wealth. It is a fact sufficiently phenomenal to challenge the world's attention that the city has made this year a new record in that the bank clearings for the last six months ending December 31. 1909. $1,-802,074,775. exceeded the highest total for the same period for the record year of 1907. and the total for the entire year of 1899, and the assessed valuation of all real and personal property-rated at 1899 at $374,588,490, has increased until the present year shows an assessment of $538,830,211, an In crease of about 60 per cent In a single conditions.

Johnson today gave place to what is predicted will be a conservative era In municipal affairs when Herman C. Baehr, a Republican, assumed the duties cf city executive. The passing of Johnson and the induction of. Baehr was accomplished without incident. Johnson turned over the records and retired into private life for "a six weeks' rest" It is understood he intends to undertake a tax reform campaign as soon as he has completely recuperated. Former Mayor Johnson did not reiterate his previous declaration that he will be a candidate for a fifth term at the next municipal election. He. simply smiled when asked as to his present position. Some of the achievements of Tom Johnson, during his nine years a Mas-or, were the winning of a long fight for lower streetcar fares, abolition of "keep off the grass" signs from public parks, elimination of grade crossings, reduction of electric street lighting from $87 to $57 a lamp a year and reduction in the price of street lighting gas from $32 to $12 annually per lamp. .ncaau..
