'PROGRESS" IS THE MOTTO
Old Blocks and Houses Make Room for
New OnesBuilding in East Minne
apolis Considered Good Investment
for Spare CashMerchants Are Wide
Awake. E. J. Hodson has just drawn the
lans for a new business block which
W. Meneilley will build, to adjoin
the site of the Meneilley block on
Fourteenth avenue SE and Fourth
street. The contract for the structure
will be let at once and operations will
begin without delay. It is to be a
two-ptory brick building, 22 feet by
70 feet. Down stairs wili be arranged
to suit the purposes for a large store
and on the second floor will be a hand
some flat. The plans call for a build
ing of decidedly attractive design, such
as would be an additional ornament to
the business section of Fourteenth ave
nue. All modern improvements will be
jut into the building, such as steam
heat, gas, electricity, etc
This is only one of the many prospec
tive new buildings which are planned
by different owners of choice land in
East Minneapolis. Dr. "Vander Horck,
who owns land at present occupied by
the Swain Transfer & Fuel company,
expects to erect a commodious business
block. The plans have not been made
et but negotiations are already un
way. East Minneapolis, in all its
history, never recorded as much build
ing activity as in the spring of 1905.
It is safe to say that there is some sort
of building going on within almost
every block lands continually change
hands and architects are busy with the
making of plans for East Minneapolis
homes and business houses. An in
creased price in the value of land only
seems to have stimulated a desire for
buying, and good property finds a ready
market right along. Mr. Meneilley, one
of the leading merchants on Fourteenth
avenue and Fourth street, is authority
for the statement that his property,
which was purchased three years ago
at the price of 110 a foot, is now val
ued at from $175 a foot and more.
According to the judgment of mer
chants on Fourteenth avenue, a first
class apartment house is much needed,
as there is great demand for apart
ments of from two to four rooms. A
number of good, first-class restaurants
are in that locality. In connection with
this, a dry goods store could be built,
as this is another of the much-needed
additions'to the university district and
one which could be conducted to good
Will Build East Side Home.
East Minneapolis as a residence dis
trict was never more popular, and,
addition to the several new homes
which are being built, building permits
have been taken out by well-known
men. Arthur Ives has plans under con
sideration for a handsome ten-room res
idence on Fifth street SE, between
Fourth and Fifth avenues, having re
cently purchased a 66-foot lot of the

A New Dyke Block.
In the new Dyke block, Central ave
nue will see the first sign of building
activity in its real down-town district.
G. Healy is now making the plans for
a fine three-story brick block, which
will be built on, the site owned by Mr.
Dyke. Mr. Dyke has been one of the
East Minneapolis merchants for the
past twenty years', and feels justified
that with the present tide of improve
ment on, an up-to-date building is about
the best investment. The block will
be 25x80 feet, and the entire space on
the first floor will be used by Mr. Dyke
for his business. The second and third
floors will be divided into four flats
of four and five rooms. Every modern
convenience, such as hot-water heat,
gas and electricity, will be provided.
Mr. Dyke has removed his business
temporarily to 104 Central avenue. The
Minneapolis Brewing company, which
also owns land on Central, between
Prince and Second street, will put up
a fine business block next spring.
Ernest Dahl will build a fine modern
residence on his lot situated on Polk
street, between Twenty-ninth and
Twenty-eighth avenues. Fred Peterson,
who owns the fine property on Central
and Twentieth avenues, is preparing to
build a good-sized business block this

IT WAS A CASE OF BRICK VS.
Property-owners Vote for Brick as Up
per Central Avenue PavementReso
lutions Are Passed for Underground
WiresPipes Must Be Laid Before
Street Is Paved.
Monday evening resident taxpayers
on Central avenue from Eighteenth
avenue up to Twenty-ninth avenue met
to come to a final agreement as to the
best and most durable pavement for the
price in repaving Central avenue be
yond Eighteenth. By a unanimous vote
the brick paving was decided_ upon.
A similar decision had been arrived at
before by the resident taxpayers from
Eighteenth avenue to Twenty-fourth,
but as the paving of the five blocks
further up was granted by the city
council last week, the special meeting
was called to have a unanimous vote of
all property-owners. William Gulick
presided and while at first some favored
the paving of the avenue with southern
pine creosote block, there was not one
opposingvote in the end. Alderman Cast
ner was present and the question was
thoroly discussed from every point of
view by the fifty men who are the
principal property-owners in that dis
trict. It is estimated that the brick
pavement will be laid and finished at
$1.95 per yard, the creosote-block pav
ing of Norway pine at $2.40 per yard
and the block of southern pine at $2.58
per yard. Last year Central avenue
was paved from the Broadway bridge
to Eighteenth avenue, and as soon as
this spring's paving is done, the ave
nue will be one of the best and finest
for travel. It is unusually wide and
well laid out.
Eesolutions were passed for a request
to have all sewer, water and gas pipes
laid before the- paving is commenced,
this to apply to every piece of property
on Central along the blocks designated
for new paving. Resolutions were also
passed relative to the electric wires and
telephone wires, as the petitioners claim
"the same are a nuisance all along1
Central avenue," and the city counci.
was requested to see that the same aie
replaced by underground wires before

the paving of the street begins. The
petition to that effect will be presented
to the city council at the next meeting
by the committee. It is signed by each
and all property-owners of the avenue.
In passing these resolutions the prop

BUSINESS MEN MEET
Want TJniversilaL Avenue Paved to the
University avenue in its present con
dition and University avenue as it ought
to be, was the topic of discussion at the
monthly meeting of the University Busi
ness Men's association, held Wednesday
vening. University avenue was re
aved last spring from avenue Thi has re
suited in great benefit for the property
owners, as it has increased the value
of property and has also caused re
newed building activity. In considera
tion of this, the business men of that
district feel justified to start a move
ment for the paving of University ave
nue from Fifteenth avenue SE to the
city limits. A large number of mem
bers of the association attended the
meeting and the condition of affairs,
the prospects and possible improvement
which would be brought about by the
paving above mentioned received an un
divided share of attention. At the next
meeting a committee will be appointed
and steps will be taken to bring about
a aeneral mass meeting of all the prop
erty owners and taxpayers living on
University avenue as far as the city
Fourteenth avenue SE, which is now
paved as far as Fifth street SE, will,
also come under consideration, and the
business men of the association will
take steps to have the avenue repaved
from Fifth street to Seventh street.
Since the repaving of the blocks from
University avenue to Fifth street last
spring, the improved conditions in busi
ness have been evident in a great many
ways. Much building has been done,
and almost every available piece of
property has already, or will soon be,
utilized. It is the hope of the business
men to make Fourteenth avenue one of
the best and finest business streets,'and
this can only be accomnhshed after a
certain amount of municipal improve
ments have been made.
