special effort was made,to impress the
strangers. Minneapohta'ns were content
to say simply: "Here's our city. You
have heard of it. It speaks for itself.''
This lack of hospitality was not in

the situation. The Commercial club did
its share in the exploitation of the city's
qualities, but the business men as a
whole shpwed no spontaneous, organized
effort to help Minneapolis put its best
foot forward. Everyone was looking
after his individual interests, and so
far the result was good. It is never
too late to mend, however, and a quo

putting the situation concretely. The

$1, LOVE AND AFFECTION'
Consideration in Real Estate Transfers
Often Hides Values.
If "$1, love and affection" could be
figured at its proper estimate in real
estate transfers the record for the year
in Minneapolis would be much higher
and closer to the proper figure.
Building permit figures are apt to be
much nearer right in their totals than
real estate transaction summaries. Yet
a move is on foot to have the build
ing figures *worn to in order to get
them up to a prope* maximum. Capi
talists and business firms erecting buiicT
ings of various starts are said to make
the maximum estimate of cost on their
buildings to give the proper focus for
the assessor when he is inspecting prop

Sometimes the consideration in a
transfer is named at $1, the legal mini
mum, for the same purpose, but, more
generally, so that no one else may know
the exact value. It is not because of
a habit of secretiveness, necessarily, but
because, if the property is bought for
speculative purposes, it is supposed to
be wiser to let the exact figure in the
purchase be secret. Thus the basis for
a future transaction is removed and the
purchaser must buy blind, or on a value

HISTORY IS BROKEN
November Building Records of North*
west Overthrow Old Arguments.
In its summary of November build
ing conditions in Minneapolis and the
northwest, the Improvement Bulletin
November formerly was considered
altogether too late in which to do any
real building in this climate, but a
casual gla|ce along the streets of the
twin cities as well as of the cities and
towns of the northwest, will reveal
that a great change has been made in
this respect. To be sure, the work that
is being started is rather limited, but
this is_ natural, for cold weather is JJ.
probability and storms a possibility at
this date, which makes it uncertain
work to start building. But all classes
of construction, from cottage to large
steel construction work, may be seen
in progress, with the intention of being
continued thru the winter in most cases.
An excellent indication of the
strength of the building position may
be seen in the advancing tendency to
be noted in various articles of build
ing material. Iron and steel structural
work is firmer and higher, as well as
exceedingly uncertain of delivery. De
liveries have been belated all summer,
and it is still a difficult matter to se
cure delivery of such work as wanted.
Lumber is also higher, and "Washing
ton dimension timbers are scarce. Ce
ment is scarce and firm, with some ad
vance in price. Overproduction is ac
countable for a reduction in price on
shingles. Builders' hardware is firm
and steady in price, as has been the
case, for the season. The demand for
this time of year is unusually large,
and it is largely for the better goods,
better quality and finish.
The season has seen an unusual
amount of concrete construction work
in various lines, from foundations for
small structures to great bridges and
viaducts and office and factory build
ings. Residence construction thru the
country has shown a strong tendency
toward using concrete blocks for some
portion of the work, if not for the
3n the cities there is already a prom
ising lot of large structures in view
tor spring construction, for which plans
will ba developed during the winter,
and income cases the contracts will
probably be let. Tho this is not so
prominently the case thru the country
it is largely because the buildings are
smaller and do not require planning so
iar in advance. There is no doubt that
the country will do its full share of
spring building, from reports which
come from different sources.
