CLAIMS ABE LARGE
A Receiver Is Named for the Minne
apolis Cold Storage Com-
Liabilities Will Be About $400,000
With Assets Estimated at
Jacob Kunz of the Kunz Oil com
pany, this city, has been appoint ed re
ceiver of the Minneapolis Cold Stor
age company, as the result of a peti
tion filed by creditors asking that the
storage company be declared bank
rupt. The appointment was made by
Judge Lochren of the United States
district court, who has ordered the
company's representatives to appear
before him Oct. 31, and show cause
why the petition should not be
granted. The signers of the petition
are the president of the company, A.
L. Flanders of Boston, whose clai ms
are placed at $31,660, the Iowa Dairy
Separator company, with claims of
$8,000, S. H. Thompson, who demands
$854, a nd the Kunz Oil company,
which asks for $631. The petition al
leges that the value of the company's
stock on hand is $5,000 and that the
value of its machinery is $15,000.
A s ground for this petition, the
signers declare that the Storage com
pany, being practically bankrupt a
month ago, has since that time entered
into various transactions that would
give undue preference to certain cre d
itors, a nd especially that the company
has mortgaged all its assets, exce pt
its merchandise, to Stephen Under
bill of New York, to secure a claim of
Liabilities About $400,000.
Receiver Kunz said this morning
that the liabilities of the Storage com
pany are about $400,000, of which
nearly seven-eighths is due to eastern
creditors. The principal creditor is
Steuhen Underhill, a New York com
mission man, his claims amount to
$265,000, and he holds a second and
third mortgage on the property of the
company for $110,000. The indebted
ness of the company in the west is
about $55,000, with bank liabilities of
less than $3,000. The total amount
that the Minneapolis plant of the com
pany owes to farmers does not exceed
$22,000, yet three months ago the
same plant paid to farmers $83,000 for
cream supplied in a single month, the
principal business of the company be
ing the manufacture of cream into
butter. Nothing is due to the butter
trade in Minneapolis.
The assets are about $260,000. What
proportion is made up of accounts r e
ceivable cannot now be designated. Of
the authorized capital stock$150,000
$71,000 has been issued. It is he ld
exclusively by Preside nt Flanders of
Boston, by Vice President Frank C '
McMullen, formerly of Boston and
now of this city, by Secretary and
Treasurer S. M. Rich of Minneapolis,
and by the families of Messrs. Fland
ers and Rich. All of the stock has
been pledged in the east to secure a
loan of $55,000.
Did a Large Business.
The company has been doing a
creamery business for about three
years. It h as branches at Aberdeen,
S. D., at Fargo, N D , a nd at Wahpe
ton, N . D . Its transactions have r e
cently amounted to $250,000 a month.
Its method of selling separators to
farmers, who sent cream to the several
plants for manufacture into butter,
has proved so admirable, under the
supervision of Vice President McMul
len, that no less than eighty-two other
plants have been started within three
years on the plan first developed by
Inability to collect on farmers*
notes, of which about $35,000 are now
outstanding, is given by Mr McMullen
as the cause of the company's distress.
H e declares, howeve r, that in all prob
ability the concern will be able to con
"If it isn't," he adds, "a similar
company will at once be .started to re
tain in Minneapolis the industry into
which we have put so much money."
LABOR DISPUTE ABBITRATED
Trouble Between Beer Barrel Coopers and
The long drawn out fight between the
beer barrel coopers of Minneapolis and
the shop owners has been settled by ar
bitration, says the Northwestern Miller.
The men accept the schedule of wages in
force in 1901, which is something of a
reduction, compared with that of 1902.
The attempt of some of the men cm
strike to run a co-operative shop, seems
to have been a total failure. They worked
up considerable stock and then were un
able to sell the packages, still having them
on their hands Four of the large shop
owners are fitting a plant with machinery,
and the men are expected to keenly feel
the effect of it With fourteen operatives,
they count on the turning out of 200 pack
ages per day Heretofore the work has
all been done by hand, and the shop own
ers found that they could not compete
against machine-made packages coming
from Peoria and other outside points.
The directors of the Twin City
Telephone company have declared a
quarterly dividerfd at the rate of 7
per cent, payable Nov. 1. Stock books

Police Continue Their Crusade to

The police are keeping up their cru

minors and as a result three saloon

liquor to a 15-year-old girl in his sa

selling liquor to Walter Gannon, a 16-

continued until Oct. 23.
T o Check Erring Girls.
I n connection with the campaign to
protect minors from vicious influences,
Captain John Landberg, in char ge of
the South Side police district, has a
pl an for driving young girls off the
streets at night. H e would have all
patrolmen ta ke the name and address
of every young girl found on the
street after 9 o'clock in the evening.
The followi ng day an officer will be
sent to call upon her parents, and
they will be informed that the next
time she is found on the street, she
will be arrested.
I n the recent crusade against vice in
the South district, it has been found
that many young girls, from 14 to 17
years of age, are roaming about the
streets every night. Two or three of
these girls have been arrested, but the
practice has not yet been stopped.
After pondering over the matter care
fully, Captain Landberg has decided
that the best pl an is the one he has

Letter Sent Out by Chicago Lumber
Dear Sir (1)
Referring to your esteemed ( 2)
favor of December 9th, wherein (3)
you state that you have received in
structions that a refund on four cars
of lumber for Lansing would be
made (4). Under date of January
(5) 6th, we received $6 00 ca sh from
your Mr. Harper in payment of three
(6) carsNos. 40555, 28036 (7) and
2173. W e Would ( 8) be pleased to
receive the other $2 00 covering the
other car (9) at your convenience.
Mr. Cody's Criticism.
1. It has been the custom, in the past
to capitalize "sir" in "Dear sir" or
"My dear sir," a nd of course no one
can say that is incorrect, but the tend
ency of recent usage is to dispense with
capitals as much as possible, and the
most up-todate business men now em
ploy the small letter in both "sir" and
"dear," following the analogy of "Very
truly yours," in which only the first
word is capitalized.
2. "Esteemed" is a hackneyed word
and means nothing in this case.
3. Why should an antique form like
"wherein" be used when the simple
and natural "in which" serves the pur
pose just as well' Simplicity is a
strong feature in a business letter.
4. Here is a sentence with no subject
or predicate. After "referring," what
happens' I don't know
5. Some tell us that abbreviating the
months is an insult That is not true.
I n the body of a letter like this it is
probably best form to spell the words
out. I n dating a letter most persons
abbreviate. ^ W e may use "6th" or
simply "6," b ut assuredly it is awk
ward to write out "Janua ry six," an
affectation of som e.
6 Except m dates, series of num
bers, etc, any number und er t en
shou ld always be spelled out, as here.
Itl is betetr not to write the two ciphers
after dollars (as in $6.00), tho in ad
vertising the ciphers are used to make
the amounts look big to the reader.
In this letetr the ciphers are not only
useless, but they may be confusing.
7. I n a series of three or more items
in which the last two are connect ed by
"and," we may place a comma before
the "and" as well as between the other
items or omit it "Usage is divided.
The best writers retain the comma to
show that all the items stand in exact
ly the same relation to what goes be
fore or follows, and that the "and"
does not conne ct merely the two words
between which it stands.
8. "Would" should not be used after
the first personal pronouns "I" and
"we" except to express the idea of wil
lingness, tho mapy persons erroneous
ly employ it on all occasions. "I
would be pleased" means "I shou ld be
willing to be pleased," which is absurd.
"Should is absolutely required to make
9. "Covering the other car," being
injected Inta the senten ce by way of
additional explanation, should be set
off by commas. Without the commas,
"at your convenience" hangs very
awkwardly at the end of the sentence.
