Real Estate
It.Will Be of Unique Design May
Be Replaced by Much More Preten
tious Structure After a Few Years
-Work Is to Begin at Once.
The Keith company will build a
one-story building for its business at
917 Hennepin. It was the announced
intention of the company to build a
high, fireproof building on a site
which was bought for that purpose.
The plan has been changed to a
simple office building because of the
change of public sentiment in regard
to Hennepin avenue. Walter J.
Keith, the president, believes that in
ten years he will be able to decide
better what sort of a building he will
need on Hennepin avenue and that
their plans will be made for a much
more pretentious and substantial
structure than originally contem
plated. Recent and important im
provements on Hennepin and the de
cision to build the procathedral of the
Roman Catholic church only a block
from Hennepin has made a change of
opinion favorable to this broad thoro
Tho small, yet suited exactly to the
conditions of the Keith company's
business, the structure to be built now
will be ornamental and a credit to the
street, as it will break away in style
of architecture from the conventional
classic. It will be of coarse cement
with a red tile roof in front and ex
posed on three sides. The dimen
sions are 50x72 feet. After the house
on the site has been removed to the
rear of the 150-foot lot for rental
purposes the space intervening between
the office building and in front of
the house will be made a dainty little
garden. C. F. Haglin has the con
tract and the house movers will be
gin Monday.
At the right of the main entrance
will be the private office of Mr. Keith.
At the left will be the library and con
sulting-room. The drafting-room
proper will measure 27x33 feet the
correspondence and specification de
partment, 21x27 feet, and the blue
print department 9x20 feet. A large
vault to contain the stock plans and
books for magazine storage will
measure 8x19 feet. The draftsmen
will be placed at the left of the lobby.
Each man will have a window on the
16-foot side alley leading to the
house in the rear, and a private work
ing stall. North light will be thrown
also on the large tables placed in the
center of the room for detail and per
spective work.
The basement will contain the hot
water apparatus and in the rear will
be the garage. The building will be
floored with cement, making it prac
tically fireproof.
The Keith company will continue to
issue Keith's Magazine on Home
Building and will do its own blue
print work with an electric light de
vice which will print six to eight
Sheets of plans at one time.
Sedgwick & Saxton's Collection Has
Just Been Issued.
Sedgwick & Saxton, architects In the
I/umber Exchange, have just issued
the sixth edition of their collection of
plans for modern homes and modern
buildings, advertised in The Jour
Th firm has published this book
before in sets for small houses,
churches, store buildings, etc. These
are united in this book. They will
still be issued in the classified form
also. It is the purpose to add to the
book and to increase also the size of
the classified books. Minneapolis is
being well advertised thru this firm,
which is selling stock plans from one
end of the union to the other, at the
same time executing many special
plans. The book is a gem of typo
graphic and half-tone art. In the
boon, are shown many well-known
buildings in Minneapolis, built from
plans by C. S. Sedgwick personally,
also products of the present firm of
Sedgwick & Saxton. Among the pub
lic buildings shown are the university
library, the Park Avenue Congrega
tioi al church, "Westminster and An
drew Presbyterian churches and oth
ers. The Dayton building is promi
nent among the store plates.
This firm has made plans for Lee
Brothers' new studio, on the fourth
floor of the building formerly occu
pied by the Y. W. C. A., on First
avenue S, for which Frank Raidt is
contractor. The work is to be done
May 1. Plans are also drawn for an
outside entrance on the Seventh street
side of the Dayton building.
Lake Cottage Demand.
The lake cottage demand this year
is equal to that of preceding seasons.
It is hard to gage prices by former
years, but the popularity of the lake
this year is evidently equal to that of
past seasons because almost any price
asked for the season's rental can be
secured if the cottage is in good shape.
Not much shifting of tenants is noted.
In most cases former cottagers are
asking for their old places. One de
mand is different. This is the large
call for land on which to build cot
tages. A good many deeds to lake
property have been filed since Jan.
1 and the sale goes merrily on.
They Explain That They're Not
Fighting the Machines.
Nothing has been heard from the
executive committee of the Interna
tional Union of Stonecutters relative
to the strike of the twenty-two men
employed in the Jones & Hartley
yards in Minneapolis. The facts in
the case were forwarded several
days ago and the local
labor leaders asked for an im
mediate response. As the members
of the committee are scattered, it isbe
not thought probable that instruc
tions as to their future actions will
arrive before Monday.
"The idea that we are fighting the
machines is an erroneous one," said
one of the strikers this morning, "I
do not know how such a report
gained circulation. We simply ask
that the machines be worked but
eight hours and handled by stone
cutters. That is the whole situation."

REMODELED. The Minneapolis Trust company will
enter the real estate field May 1, with
Arthur C. Danenbaum as manager of I
the new department. The company
wjll continue its rental business under
the direction of E. W. Thompson, who
has been in its employ fourteen years.
Preparatory to the installation of this
new feature of the business, the Trust
company building at Fourth and Hen
nepin is being remodeled. The two
Hennepin avenue entrances, which had
been closed temporarily, will be re
placed with broad plate-glass win
dows to match the present front. A
new entrance will be opened in the
corner thru the former private office
of Samuel Hill, uniting with the lobby
which leads from the Fourth street
entrance and which is to remain open.
The glass partitions will be removed
and the whole space will be thrown
open.* The H. N. Leighton company
has tne contract and the changes will
cost about $2,000.
The officers of the Trust company
have selected Mr- Danenbaum for
manager of the new department be
cause of his well-known efficiency in
real estate negotiations, and with the
feeling that the business is being
placed in good hands, Mr. Danen
baum is well known to the fraternity
and to the buying public. In his con
nection of fifteen years with the firm
of Thorpe Brothers he has built up
a reputation for integrity and has ac

What The Journal Will Do for Its
The Journal has arranged to supply
its readers with the Louisiana Pur
chase Exposition in form for perma
nent preservation at their homes
practically free. The low cost of 10
cents per number is designed to cover
the cost of handling, mailing and
delivering. This reproduction will be
in the form of Portfolio or Parts, each
with sixteen 11 by 14 pages. It will
be comprised in thirty numbers, or
bound parts, issued weekly.
As a permanent, pictorial and de
scriptive representation of the varied
and comprehensive Exposition in the
world's history, it will be invaluable
to all Who visit the Faira pictorial
and descriptive record of what they
saw. It will be an equally invaluable
lesson of jperpetual interest to those
who do not visit the Fair. These pho
tographic views, issued by exclusive
arrangement with the World's Fair
officials, will constitute, when com
pleted, a permanent pictorial presen
tation of the Fair in its architectural,
industrial and art exhibits, with spe
cial presentation of its more wonderful
assemblages of humankind in types,
costumes and occupationsrepresent
ing with marvelous comprehensiveness
the life and activities of the various
countries of the earth, including the
isles of the oceana veritable epi
tome of the world to-day. The World's
Fair will thus be transferred in en
during form to the printed page not
only in its superb architecture and
scenic effects, its personnel, but in
all of its Industrial and magnificent
art exhibits. No exposition ever held
has lent itself so remarkably to high
class, artistic photography. In the
production of the portfolios these op
portunities for high-class art publica
tion will be fully improved.
The extent of the Exposition in area
exceeds all others. It embraces 1,240
acres. Chicago had 633 acres, Paris
336. As compared with the Chicago
Exposition, the state and territorial
participation exceeds that of 1893 by
75 per cent. This applies not only
to the amount of expenditures, but
to the number of states and common
wealths participating. The Exposi
tion abounds in opportunities for the
camera and the series will not only be
representative of the wonderful de
tails of the Fair, but in every way
artistically beautiful.
