Altho occupying the foremost place
in the public eye today, the postoffice
site question as not the only matter
of interest in Minneapolis real estate
for the week ending yesterday. Sev
eral sales have taken place which have
significance, and intimations are pres
ent that the busy season will begin
earlier than usual next year, particu
larly on upper Nicollet avenue.
The most generally interesting bit of
news is the local offer of $225,000 to
Plymouth Congregational Church soci
ety for its property at Eighth street
and Nicollet avenue. This offer would
probably have been increased to $230,-
000 if the bid had been entertained at
all. The inquiring purchaser wanted
an answer at once, and he received a
refusal. I is understood that the com
mittee desires to dispose of the prop
erty to the highest bidder, and it is
Erobable that such a plan will be
Hard to Figure.
It is rather hard to figure the offer
of $225,000 at so much a front foot
on Nicollet avenue as a basis for future
sales. This is due to the well-known
fact that the property is of irregular
shape, with a greater width in thethe
rear than on Nicollet. The property
measures 105 feet on Nicollet by 132help
feet on Eighth, and has an "L" ex
tending. 157 feet back to the alley
from Eighth. Dropping the "L" out
of the question and the material in
the church, the frontage valuation
would be $2,143.
The other day George D. Dayton
sold the three-story brick and site,
across Nicollet and the alley812-814
Nicolletat $1,500 a front foot, or at
$1,200, according to the valuation as
signed the structure. Mr. Dayton
placed the price at $1,500, and then
took a four-year lease' back, or guar
anteed the lease at $7,500 for four
years. This property has a depth of
125 feet, which puts the two proper
ties, for purposes of comparison, on
practically the same basis.
As much comment has been passed
on the Dayton sale to D,r. Tourtellotte
as on the Douglas Fiske purchase sev
eral weeks ago of the vacant corner
at Eleventh street and Nicollet ave
nue. Mr. Dayton is regarded as
of the shrewdest dealers in the real
estate market. has been a heavy
buyer and still retains large holdings,
including his own block at Seventh
street, the Sea block at Ninth, another
Seventh street front, and other prop
erties. I this sale he made a fair
profit, and yet on the principle of
live and let live" was willing to.
make a sale to Dr. Tourtellotte, an
other heavy investor, altho prophets
placed the value, five years hence, at
$125,000. Mr. Dayton's increase was
$61,000. from which the cost of

Stocks Go Into Real Estate.
An interesting feature of the sale
is the understanding that the Tourtel
lotte investment is the proceeds from
sale of stocks. The tendency of
people to turn from stocks to real
estate at certain intervals has been
emphasized by the real estate men,
and the prophecy has been made that,
tollowmg the east, the west and Min
neapolis would soon show a turn from
one form of investment to the other.
Circumstances connected with the re
cent sale indicates that the turn is

which she already owned sets a new
lenth street frontage value at $330 a
toot. The Gale frontage on Tenth, to
ward First avenue S, is now 115 feet.
Altho the Gale properties are generally
taken from the market, this does not
mean, as it might in some quarters,
that thev will become a stumbling
block the way of other improve
ments in the neighborhood. The cor
ner will be improved at once, unless
some one takes a lease of the property.
Mrs. Gale has already transformed the
old shack on the corner site into a
respectable and renting property, but
this improvement will be sacrificed for
the new building. Inasmuch as theorganizations
owner believes that Tenth and Nicollet
will be a leading retail corner within
twenty-five years, it is probable that
this faith will have some bearing on
the style and construction of the build
ing which is to be erected in the near
Ninth and Nicollet.
Rumor is busy with the corner of
Ninth and Nicollet. The long lease
of the Menzel corner by Messrs. Pearce
and Wlalton set things going. The de
cision to put uo a building added fuel
to the speculation as to what was to
be done with the Sea block across
Ninth street and the Beid property at
the diagonal corner. I is reported
that E G. Walton has an option orr
the Sea corner from G. D. Dayton, and
that Mr. Brouwer-Ancher is entertain
ing three proposals for the Beid prop
erty, which is one of the deepest on
the avenue. Some color is given to
the latter assertion by the fact that
the beautiful trees which have made
the Beid corner a show spot in Min
neapolisan oasis in the busy retail
centerhave been cut down.
An important sale on the East Side
was that of the Lloyd Manufacturing
company's plant and site to the. Fire
Proof Door company, which will manu
facture its product there. The latter
company bought about 165 feet' front
age on Central avenue NE, with North
ern Pacific trackage, for $4Q,000. This
includes the 44 feet adjoining the

'To those who have lived in
twin cities for any length of time,"
says Mr. Sawyer, 'i has become evi
dent that we possess the essential char
acteristics of a future, metropolis. Our
contributing district is larger even than
that of Chicago. Our city is in close
proximity to the stock ranges and the
wheat fields, and will for a long time
be accessible to extensive lumber dis
tricts. I adds to these advantages
one of the finest water powers in thebeen
United States, the value of which must
be computed by millions, and we shall
ere long be the heajd of navigation
on the Mississippi rrver. thus having
open to us a waterway for transporta

have laid the foundation firm and

Numberless manufacturers, jobbers and
retail merchants have located them
here, and many are on the way.

TROLLEY EXTENSION ASKED
Merchants See Hope of Increased Trade
in New Electric Lines.
That Minneapolis, may soon be the
center of one of the finest suburban
trolley systems in the country is the
hope of the retail interests of the city,
not only of the downtown merchants,
but also those in the small trade cen

street railway company and other ex
tensions which would be welcomed by
the Minneapolis retail trade will be
The Twin City Rapid Transit com
pany and its subsidiary and suburban
have already started a
system which the retail merchants hope
to see expanded and developed. The
lines out of St. Paul to Stillwater,
White Bear and South St. Paul are
practically of no benefit to Minneapolis
merchants as the trade from these
points naturally stops in St. Paul. Min
neapolis is directly benefited, tho, by
the Minnetonka, line to the west and'
southwest of Minneapolis, reaching
Hopkins and Excelsior. Another direct
feeder is the recently acquired line to
Robbinsdale, running north of the city,
which will soon be extended thru Ossto
and Champlin to Anoka.
Further extensions of both these lines
are hoped for. A specially expressed
hope is that, in a short time, the Min
netonka system may be extended to tap
the near towns of the Mississippi valley,
notably Shakopee, Chaska and Carver,
and possibly others. They are in a rich,
well settled country and with the fur
ther growth tha,t will come with trol
ley development would be most valu
able to Minneapolis trade. I is pointed
out that a river line connecting these
three larger towns could easily be con
nected with the Minnetonka line at
Excelsior. The distance from Excelsior
to Chaska is not great, and if thru

any transcontinental railroad which shall
build across Western Canada. It is also
true of any railroad which builds into

"I have no hesitation In saying that It

bors I was ever in."Capt. Brundlge,
assistant to Sir Sandford Fleming, chief
engineer of the Canadian Pacific Railway

cording to my judgment, begin at Que
bec and should extend from that city,
by the most direct route, to Port Simp
son on the Pacific coast."Sir Sandford
Fleming, one of the ablest engineers Can

"The line will terminate at Port Simp
son, which would appear to me to beand
unique with regard to the opportunities
necessary for a terminal point." In the
