Tracts in 1902.
COUNTIES WHICH ARE AFFECTED
Action Taken as to Next Year's
Lease*—Timber Sentlona in
the Hill« Offered.
Special to The Journal. "
Pierre. S. D., Dec. 21.— state land
board at its session this week decided to
offer for sale in 1902 the school, endow
ment and Taylor lands in Marshall, Clark,
Sanborn, Minnehaha and Davison coun
ties, A part of the eld Fort Sisseton res
ervation, not now under lease, will also
be offered for sale.
The land commissioner was authorized
by the board to accept sealed bids for a
three-year lease of the "military section"
of the Sisseton reservation, at a minimum
of $250 for the section, above the consid
eration of care and protection of the
buildings, .the lessee to furnish a bond of
$5,000 for the carrying out of his agree
ment.
It was also decided to offer for sale sec
tion 36, in town 5, range 4 east, in Law
rence county; and section 16 in town -
north, range 3 west, in Pennington county,
for cash only, as such sections are pri
marily valuable for the timber.
Leases for the coming year will be made
in all counties of the state where lands
«re open. The rate in counties which
■were rated rather high last year has not
teen changed, but the average advance
in leasing price for the counties east of
the Missouri river is 25 per cent. West
of .the Missouri river, with the excep
tion of Lawrence county, the lease price
was fixed from 6 to 7 cents an acre. In
>*v«vrenee county the rate is fixed at 9, 10
and 12 cents.
The highest leasing price in any county
Is 25 cents an acre, this rate being fixed
lor Bon Homme, Lincoln, Minuehaha,
Moody, Turner, Union and Yankton, and
In some of these no leases can be made
as all lands are .taken. The counties in
which all lands are taken on term leases
are Beadle, Turner, Lincoln and Union.
The land department issued patents to
thirteen final purchasers of state lands
who had made final payments. Grant,
WcCook and Minnehaha each received
three of these, Lake two and Codington
and Lincoln each one.
On account of the heavy appropriations
of the last legislative session the state
treasury will be obliged, before the end of
January, to either register state war
rants or issue a further issue of revenue
warrants to carry .the state on a cash
fcasis. Just which action will be taken
has not yet been decided upon, and prob
ably will not be until the time for action
comes.

trustee demanded that the firm refund all
money which it had received within the
four months limit, but Nash Brothers set
forth that while they had received pay
ments they had also extended credits dur
ing the four months, and that the goods
furnished were worth quite as much as
they had received.
The matter was referred to the referee,
who decided that the firm could partici
pate in the dividends without refunding.
The trustee then appealed to Judge Loch
ren, who sustained the decision of the
referee. An appeal was then taken to the
higher court, which also decides in favor
of Nash Bros. The point is of much
interest, this being the first time a case
of this kind has been carried up.

of them. Shortly afterward one of the
sons became deathly sick and a physician
was sumon-ed.
The other members of the family were

three hours were at the point of death.

PENSION PROTEST
Indiana Women Don't Want to See
Mrs. Harrison Favored.
y«ta York Sun Special Service
Terre Haute, Ind., Dec. 21.—The
Woman's club of Rockville, prominent in
the State Federation of Clubs, has gone on
record against a mansion for Mrs. Harri
son, wife of Benjamin Harrison. The
protest of the club says:
In view of the fact that there is danger of
a bill being Introduced in congress to grant
a special pension to Mrs. Harrison, widow of
ex-President Harrison, the woman's club of
Rockville enters a protest against this meas
ure. We believe it a bad precedent, even
should the president die in office. But under
the circumstances Mrs. Harrison not bei^g a
widow of a president, but of an ex-president,
we consider the bill entirely uncalled for and
a vicious precedent to establish. In these
views we believe we voice the sentiment of a
very large majority of the citizens of the
state.

YANKTON STORY DENIED
No Truth in Late Report of Loss on
New Asylum Building.
Special to The Journal.
Aberdeen, S. D., Dec. 21.—The state
ment sent out from Yankton a few days
ago to the effect that a section of ce
ment flooring had given way in the new
insane hospital building is pronounced by
the superintendent to be wholly without
foundation in fact. Several months ago
a small portion of the cement flooring fell
because of being overloaded with sand
while in a green condition, but nothing of
the kind has occurred since, except that
in inspecting the flooring recently the
superintendent detected a few slabs that
seemed defective and he had them re
moved. It is felt that the report, as
well as tha magnification of the accident
of a few months ago, was circulated with
a design to injure the present manage
ment of the institution.
STREET RAILWAY TALK
Grand Forks May Build Fifteen Miles
Xest Summer.
Grand Forks, N. D., Dec. 21.—The pro
position of New York capitalists to build
a street railway in Grand Forks was to
have been considered at an adjourned
meeting of the city council last evening,
but on account of the absence of the mayor
| the meeting was not held. City Auditor
I Brown has received copies of the fran
i chises granted to many of the street rail
way companies of cities in Minnesota,
I Michigan and Kansas, and they will be
considered at the next meeting of the
council. The feeling in the council is fa
vorable to the building of the railway,
and as the New York concern is anxious
to put in the road it is almost an assured
fact that the street railway will be com
pleted the coming summer.
The main line will run from the state
university to the city and across the river
through the business section of East
Grand Forks, and in addition there will
be another line running north and south
through the residence portion of Grand
Forks. There will be, all told, from ten
to fifteen miles of line.

HIS "SAND" GIVES OUT
TOO TIMID TO FACE HIS BRIDE
Ulinoi» Man Flees the City and His
Deserted Fiancee Ik
I'l'ONtnilril.
Quincy, 111., Dec. 21.—Rather than
marry the woman he professed to lovo
and to whom he had been engaged to over
a year, William Doran, aged 38, book
keeper at the Gem City saw mills, yester
day fled the city because he was too timid
to face itho bride, Miss Nellie Parsons,
during tha ceremony. That is the only
explanation his relatives have to offer,
and his acquaintances believe this to be
true-. The wedding was to have taken
place last night at the home of the bride.
Doran is a member of one of the oldest
families in the county. His diffidence has
been conspicuous of late, and is said to
have been the cause of a former postpone
ment of the wedding. . This time, how
ever, he had perfected all arrangements,
even to the leasing of a house and the
purchase of the furniture. Yesterday
afternoon Rev. Parker Shields, who was
to have performed the ceremony, received
a letter from Doran telling him that he
found it impossible to marry Miss Parsons
and asking the minister to inform her of
his decision. The letter said further that
ho would be out of the city by 'the time
the note was at hand. No explanation
of his conduct was vouchsafed. Since
then nothing has been heard from him.
Rev. Shields broke the news as gently as
possible to the deserted bride, but she is
prostrated. Both Doran and Miss Par
sons enjoy an extensive acquaintance and
the news of the former's action has
caused consternation.

STOCK NOW SELLING AT 25 CENTS, PAR VALUE $1.00
TEXAS GEYSER OIL CO., SIZ tSrr*
Realty in Minneapolis
At the present rate of demand owners
of high class office buildings in Minne
apolis realize that their property will
soon begin to make better returns on the
investments. The demand will soon equal
the supply. This is due in a large de
gree to the advent of reliable outside
concerns which are seeking office room in
Minneapolis which is now rapidly becom
ing a purchasing market, especially in the
lumber line.
The large office buildings indicate the
growth of the cTty and the improvement
in business by the fact that they are
practically all filled. When the fine,
new Andrus building was completed and
ready for occupancy last spring it was
commonly supposed that the office build
ing supply exceeded the demand and that
tenants would be found only by drawing
from other buildings. The Andrus build
ing is, however, already well filled and
other large buildings are found in the
same condition. '
The Lumber Exchange is fully tenanted.
Prosperity among the lumbermen has
caused an expansion and enlargement of
quarters and many new firms have been
coming into the city during the past year
composed of what is known as a line yard
men—those having yards in the country
towns along certain lines of railway.
Only this week the management of the
building was compelled to open up a store- I
room as an office, the ceilings of which'
had not been touched since the fire which I
gutted the building in early days.
Lumber in the northwest has become so ■
scarce that the owners of yard lines who
formerly had headquarters in lowa, Mm- j
nesota and the Dakotas find that they can- j
not follow the market and are bringing j
their main offices to the central market'
and handling their business from> this
city. Pacific coast men have opened quar
ters in this city and are selling coast |
products, .also manufacturers of southern I
pine. Minneapolis has thus become a
great purchasing market in lumber and!
this brings the leading retail men to the
City,.men who are a great addition to the;
business strength of the city because of ',
their sound business qualities.
The Guaranty building is filled largely
with railroad offices. They have made ad
dltiona to their space recently. The same
Is true of the tenants in the New York
Life building and the Phoenix building, to
which an addition is now being erected.
Such office buildings as the Temple Court
and Boston block, and> the Kasota build
ing are found with only few vacancies.
. Thus far rents have not been advanced,
but indications are that with the renewal
of leases after the first of the year there
will be a stiffening of rentals, perhaps
by 20 or 30 per cent. The only thing thus
far approaching an advance has been in
the form of a charge for artificial light
ing formerly furnished free to tenants.
The greater part of the space in the
new Chamber of Commerce has been con
tracted for in advance of its completion
and at greatly advanced rates. Charges
were advanced twice on the original
schedule on account of the great demand I
for room.
Next Year F*ull of Promise.
Real estate men are almost unanimous in
pronouncing the year just closing as a good
on* in their line of business. Although at
times 1 the market seemed dull, when a glance
is taken at the figures for 1901 it is seen
that the year has been a prosperous one. De
cember has been a much better month than
in 1900 although inquiry has fallen off to a
certain extent.
The real estate agents and investors are
confident of a fine business' next year. Every
indication shows these experts in diagnosis of
| realy market conditions that a strong,
j healthy growth is on for the city. No such
| boom is expected as well to the lot of Mm:
-: neapolis several years ago, which would have
| helped the city more had it ceased five years
| earlier than it did. Men who were in the
j business during those days say that it is im
> possible for Minneapolis to have such a boom
j again. Instead there is 1 a gradual, normal
growth which is much more favorable for the
correct development of the city.
Minneapolis has grown so evenly that it
has been almost imperceptible to the average j
citizen, but when a look is taken at the build- t
ing. record for the last- year and a half it
will be remembered that many of the fine new
buildings which already seem fixtures of long
standing were put up during this period. Fac
tories and business houses have been branch
ing out, expanding, al! so quietly and with
out the blare of trumpets that even the news
paper reader dees not realize the extent of the
increase in manufacturing and among busi
ness houses. An old citizen said this week:
"These manufacturing institutions which have
gradually grown from small beginnings to
their present importance are much better
for Minneapolis than the kind that we used
to go out and hire so come to town. It is
much 'better also for them to come because
the managers feel that they must do so for
the protection of their interests."
A New Real Estate Company.

estate company, incorporated this morning,
