CAP FACTORY WOULD
FIND IMMENSE TRADE
Capmaking is an unknown art in
Minneapolis, and yet the city consumes
immense quantities of this 'aiticle,
which is indispensable in a northern
climate. Thru local consumption and
the jobbing trade, caps are sold by the
thousands. Yet all these caps are
bought in the east and advantages
which might accrue to Minneapolis thru
the manufacture of its own caps are
lost to the city.
This is the greatest fur coat piodu
cmg center in the United States. When
one gets as far east as Milwaukee, the
fur coatmaking business is unknown. It
is indigenous to the northwest. This
great industry is centered in Mmne
apohs, which is the outlet point of the
raw furs marketed from the northwest
and is the distributing center for the
finished article of wearing apparel. Yet,
while caps are linked so closely with
the fur coat as an article of wearing
apparel, it is a curious fact that a cap
making industry has not yet been es
The fur manufacturing business was
built up here under discouraging circum
stances, and now it is one of the prime
factors the city's wealth production.
It is one of the leading lines of manu
factuie. In the same way it might be
necessaiy to build up a cap manufactur
ing business, yet it would surely be
come a leader in the industry list.
Two large Minneapolis business
houses job caps thru the northwest.
Thev handle immense quantities of
goods. Eastern factories to a large ex
tent have acquired the practice of sell
ing direct to the retail trade thru their
own salesmen. Between the two classes
of trade the business has assumed im
mense proportions. The increasing vol
ume of this trade is held out to manu
facturers of the line, or to capitalists,
as an inviting argument for an invest
ment in a capmaking enterprise.
Experts say that capmaking and hat
making are two separate and distinct
lines of business and, therefore^ neither
would involve the other as a side line
A cap factory is the more needed and
the most probable of successful outcome
if established on a firm basis.
Large Territory Contiguous.
"No better market in America could
be offered to cap manufacturers. Min
neapolis is on the southern border line
of a cold country. Tributary country
clear to Hudson's bay is open to the
development of the cap trade. Nearly
everyone, particularly in the countrv
towns and those exposed to the weather,
wears a cap. The territory has a class
that requires only a staple line of goods
with only a few distinct patterns, or
designs of cut, and styles of cloth. It
has also a class which requires novel
ties in both cut and cloth material.
Business men are of the opinion that
a cap factory should be a large one in
order to become a credit to the city,
or even an advantage. It should be
established on a $200,000 basis at least.
Tins money would properly equip a
site with a good factory, and the fac
torv with, the proper material, and at
the same time stock it up with the
cloth matenal, and allow for the get
ting up of a line of designs. As in
the fur coat manufacturing business
and the hat business, help would have
to be educated. While a cap factoiv
would give employment to a gieat many
hands, the class of employees would be,
to a large extent, skilled, and, there
foie, of a desirable standard.
With Necessary Materials the Natural Product of the North-
west and the Northwest's Many Out-of-Door Workers
Users of Caps, the Manufacture of That Article Would
Certainly Be Profitable.

Many Outdoor Workers.
Caps make a line that is necessary
for jobbing houses and geneial stores
which carry men's clothing. The out
fitting of woodsmen, miners, hunters,
drivers, farmers, lailroad men, stock
men and the various classes of outdoor
workers usual in the northwest would
be incomplete without the cap. Inas
much as piactically all the other goods
of the outfits are made now in Minne
apolis, it is aigued by men in the trade
that a field is offered to the capitalist
foi placing his money to good advan
tage in this branch of manufacturing.
Shoes, tiousers, heavy shirts, under
wear and the seveial accompaniments
of an outdoor life are turned out by
Minneapolis factories with piofit.
"Minneapolis cannot have too many
good manufacturing mdustnes," said
a dealer in hats and caps this week.
"Small industries are sometimes a det
riment to the city because they can
get out only a -mall line of goods, and
they demoiahze the trade with cut
prices. Well founded factories, how
evei, are a distinct advantage.
"As for the making of caps, I should
be glad to lay before anyone mteiested
establishing such a plant here the
conditions which are favorable to Mm
neapohs as a city in which to locate.
The mattei of cheap power, good labor,
good homos for employees to be seemed
at low rentals, paik, hbiaiy and night
school opportunities, and nearness to
the consuming market, can be detailed
at length, and when properly presented
to a probable investor, will have its
effect Many of the arguments that
have applied in the securing of indus
tries for our city will be equally appli
cable in the matter of capmaking. I
have given some of these.
The One Article Lacking.

forth in The Journal's indus

"In presenting succinct facts to busi
ness men who are looking over this
metropolis with an eye to selecting Mm
neapohs as a factory site, the scarcity
of the right kind of labor is a detri
ment. Factones which employ girls for
machine hands find it hard to keep the
force up to standard in numbers. One
leason is the lack of facilities^ for
boarding and lodging them near the* fac
tory. Another is due to the fact that
Minneapolis is in a new manufacturing
country. In the east, where some fac
tory towns aie nearly as old as the
country itself, operatives grow into the
business. They are born in the fac
tory town, breathe its atmosphere and
become thoroly imbued with the factory
spirit Well trained factory hands are
therefoie easy to secure. So, while
Minneapolis local organizations of busi
ness men are seeking to secure new in
dustries for the city it is necessary to
look to other matters as well as the
creation of new trackage, the securing
of capital and the promise of moral sup
port and the patronage of local busi
