N RETAIL CIRCLES,
Brilliant Showing of Growth
in Stocks and Buildings.
SIDE STREETS ARE CAPTURED.
Panoramic Changes in Ten
Years of Time.
HANDSOME BUILDINGS REQUIRED
Fashionable Fine Goods Re-
quired by Buyers.
MANY WELL ASSORTED STOCKS.
In the retail trade of St. Paul one of *
the points not heretofore brought into
newspaper notice is the extension of
that trade, during the past ten years,
upon other streets than the one which
in 1880 was the most prominent. East
Third street was then the principal
promenade. There the shoppers
thronged during the afternoons, and
there the belles and beaux fluted in the
evenings. During the first of the grand
carnivals, as recently as 188C>, East
Third street presented one of the most
magnificent spectacles of illumination
and gaiety that was ever seen iv the
west. Probably as much business is
done there now as ever. Well estab
lished and popular houses trade there
still in high-class goods, but a portion
of the street has been captured by lead
ing dealers in fruits and produce— all
very good and attractive in the whole
sale line— especially where the California
products are being handled. The notable
fact is that in its growth the business
has spread so that East Seventh street
is now of great importance in retailing,
and Wabasha street has become a no
ticeable resort for shoppers. East
Sixth street is also a favorite locality
for the ladies, while Robert and Jack
son streets show several blocks of en
ticing slocks of goods at retail. St.
Peter street near Fifth is being trans
formed into a modernized retail district
by the erection of line stores. Other
streets make some showing on retail
business, together with South Bobert
and South Wabasha streets, on the
West side. It takes but little consider
ation to realize that a colossal growth
has occurred during the past decade.
The attractive architecture and large
proportions of the business houses
erected in these new districts outrank
even the proportions of the new exten
Full assortments of all kinds of
goods can be obtained from St.
Paul at the lowest prices, for rents
and all other expenses here are reason
able. The retailers send goods into
hundreds of miles of the surrounding
district. A special demand for stylish.
fine goods from the more wealthy resi
dents of the Twin Cities makes" some
portions of the retail trade of St. Paul a
veritable art symposium. Should these
retailers join in an art exhibition, it
would surpass many an Eastern exhibi
tion of similar character. With some of
the magnificent paintings owned in
St. Paul it would be worth a large ad
mission fee. The largest stocKs of
goods northwest of Chicago are carried
by St. Paul retailers, and the demands
from the people of fashion are so notice
able here that no effort is spared in
keeping up with the times.

A PERMANENT IMPROVEMENT.
The Real Estate exchange has been of
considerable advantage to the capital
ists who have purchased property here.
The lists of property offered and the
schedules of values have been so ar
ranged that investors could see easily
where the best bargains were obtain
able. The Investments of one man from
Buffalo. N. V., have footed about 1500,
--000 during the past three years. The
conclusion, from the schedule of values,
compared with other cities of the same
size, is that St.Paul presents better bar
gains in real estate than the other cities.
Her advantages are understood by
shrewd buyers, who take hold of prop
erty in dull or close times. The trans
fers now will show that a great
deal of desirable realty is going
into very strong hands. St. Paul
is a peculiar city in its archi
tectural aspects. Un one corner towers
the $1,000,000 Ryan hotel. Across the
street from it stands a one-story dwell
ing that has held its post for thirty
years, and a block away stands the
splendid structure of the New York
Life company, with a block of tumble
down frame cottages staring it iv the
face. it is in these intervening spaces
between the marks of frontier and
modern architecture that wonderful
bargains are being picked up by those
who have means at hand. In a smaller,
and yet very promising, way similar
purchases are being made in the resi
dence portions of the city. Uomeseek
ers are numerous now on the principle
that real estate is, after all, the safest
investment that can be made, and with
taxes and assessments comparatively
low, the temptation to buy real
estate is too much for those
who are well posted. No man who is
earning fair wages need be without
a home of bis own, with prices so low
and terms so favorable. The influx of
manufactories to St. Paul of late is
bringing many workingmen who have
saved enough to make a purchase, and
that is improving the demand for suo
urban property. They are a thrifty
class of men, wno come here from the
implement works, cordage works and
similar manufacturing establishments
of the East, and they hate to be consid
ered as merely tenants. The real estate
.transfers in St. Paul during 1802 num
bered 4,*.10, and aggregated $18,000,
--000.00. The present improvements of
the city are warranted by its growth
and prosperity, and are uot the crea
tions of mere speculation. While tne
increase in values here has not always
been as rapid as boomers would wisli.it
has been solid and enduring. Tlie real
estate dealers stand high in the com
