Billiard matters in Chicago are in extraordinary state of quiescence just now. The only items of interest are that of John Coon has assumed the management of the Tremont House rooms, and that Mike Honohan is to have charge of the billiard room of the Nevada House, the new hotel recently built on the corner of Franklin and Washington streets. Mike opens out in grand style next Wednesday evening, and Parker, McDevitt, Rhines, Snyder, and other celebrities are to lend a helping hand in the way of exhibition games.

Board for the Winter.
First-class board, with splendid rooms, elegantly furnished, at reasonable rates, can be found at the Nevada Hotel, the new hotel recently erected by Gov. Bross, on the southwest corner of Washington and Franklin streets. It is very homelike, and for comfort is not surpassed. As we board there ourselves, we knew whereof we speak.
