Suggestion of industries needed in
Minneapolis, as outlined on r
nal's industrial page, has in several
case* been followed almost immediately
by formation of such companies. In
commenting on this fact a Minneapolis
man of business affairs said that Minne
apolis needs a factory to make agricul
tural implements. Not only agricul
tuml implements as generally known,
but also wagons and sleighs 'for farm
purposes, which could be made with
proht in Minneapolis, for northwestern
consumption, if his estimate of condi
tions is correct.
Many of the large implement and
harvester factories of the country have
big distribution warehouses in Minne
apolis for handling their products in ad
jacent territory. These houses employ
onl ya few hands and distribute only a
portion of the money that would

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL."
The Twins May Work Together to Advantage.
real estate fraternity of Minneapolis and St. Paul is beginning to realize the advantage and neces-
sity of co-operation in the general exploitation of investment properties in the respective cities.
For example, a St. Paul investor looking for a good purchase in Minneapolis would have no unreason-
able prejudice as to locality that in many cases would govern a local investor to a large extent. North, West,
South or East Side property would be satisfactory, providing the general conditions complied with his re-
quirements. The same would apply to a Minneapolis investor in St. PauL The dealer can offfer and exploit
his property entirely on its merits and not have to contend with locality prejudice. The average dealer has
customers daily who could not be induced to purchase East or South Side property, no matter how good a
showing as to income, value or possibilities, but would select a locality where the property he desired could
not be had at any price.
People living outside the twin cities, particularly in the eastern states, regard Minneapolis and St. Paul
as practically one city, and this idea should be fostered and encouraged. What Minneapolis may lack St.
Paul can supply, and in return Minneapolis with her interests can offset an equivalent lack in St. Paul,
thus combining railroad headquarters, jobbing, milling, lumber, banking and real estate interests of the two
cities, we have a remarkable showing to submit to a prospective investor. Also a joint population of 600,000
for one city is much more attractive to the easterner than taken separately. Nicollet avenue property, in
a community of 600,000 people would not appear high to the outsider at from $2,500 to $3,500 per front foot,
as it might taking the individual population of Minneapolis, regardless of the fact of the correspondingly
high rental. The same holds true of Robert, Sixth or Wabasha streets in St. Paul in the same proportion.
This has been suggested before, but can not be too emphatically emphasized for the benefit of all con-
cerned. These mutual advantages, as can easily be seen, apply not only to the real estate men, but busi-
ness men engaged in any pursuit to use their utmost endeavor toward co-operation with our sister city.

cupied. All the land is not yet avail
able for agricultural purposes. With
the completion of the large federal irri
ation operations as planned for Mon
ana, an additional vast area will be
ready for the settler's plow and seeder.
In fact it is frequently said that the
development of the country, and an ac
companying enormous demand on Min
neapolis for all sorts of manufactured
goods, is bound to go forward rapidly,
increasing year by year.
This opens a promise of years of fat
ness for Minneapolis manufacturers and
not a small amount of this promise can
be taken to themselves by the manufac
turers of agricultural implements. The
land is the first support of settlers and
it is always and finally the support of
the inhabitants of the small communi
ties wherever they may be found.
Just at Threshold.
To a manufacturer of prophetic mind
an Eden of possibility opens before him
as he considers the probabilities as
based on past history of the northwest
and the eagerness with which new peo
ples are coming in to take up land. He
will see before him the future of a
great metropolis where Minneapolis now
stands, to which the surrounding terri
tory will turn for supplies. This will be
a metropolis built up on a manufactur
ing and distributing basis. However,
with one plow factory, and one wagon
factory, one knitting factory, one soap
factory, one refrigerator factory, and so
on indefinitely, the city could never
grow because it could not supply the
Just so in the agricultural implement
line, a single factory, or even two, would
undoubtedly be strained to the limit to
take care of the demand that will be
from the growing country to the
west for years to come.
About sixty-six manufacturers of ag
ricultural implements and farm ma
chinery have agencies or offices in Min
neapolis. Eight more have branches
in St. Paul. This to a rank outsider''
of observing tendencies would be suffi-

A yearly visit to the state fair i
grounds during the fall exhibiton will
demonstrate that no other manufac
turers have a larger appreciation of the
possibilities of the fair exhibit as an
advertising agency or of how closely
the farm life is interwoven with the
history of the northwest that it is
now making. It is deduced from this
evidence of tremendous competition for
the agricultural-implement business 4
that if companies which must ship their
products such long distances at high
freight rates are so prosperous, a Min
neapolis factory, with the low raw ma
terial freight rate at its service and
the shortened distance to the consumer
on the finished product, would have a
fighting chance for a good, business.,
