One tbought the lot in the rear of the Chandler House, which coüld be purchased for f 4,000. was preferable to the Goodrich corner at $5,000. A number of speeches pro and con were indulgud in, when the club by un almost unanimous vote instructed the committee appointed at a previous meeting to makc an offer of $5,000 for the last mentioaed property, providing they could secure subscriptions to the amount of $1,200 or $1,500 from those owning real estáte in the iinmediate vicinity, toward constructiog an opera house.
