feminino interest in
dainty lingerie has m.ule a tre
mention market in the twin
cities an the northwest for mus
lin underwear. The northwest
territoiy, at whose commercial gateway
Minneapolis stands, is a fallow field in
this line waiting for the Aginative har

as the people grow richer and have fa

In consideration of this large trade in
fine undergoods, the question has arisen
in the mind of the wholesalers why Min
neapolis buvs merchandise of this class
instead of manufacturing it. It is be
lieved that only a suggestion is required
to start capital on an investigation of
the richness of the field, expense of
powei, labor conditions and the trans
portation resources of Minneapolis.
Success which industries alreadv es
tablished in the manufacture of other
kinds of wearing apparel have met here
will be a basis for figuring on the new
plant for the special manufacture of
the muslin goods for women and chil
Competition with "Home Made."
Reference to the fact that the terri
toiy paying tribate to Minneapolis is
a fallow field is drawn out by the fact
that a large proportion of the north
western states the female population
of small settlements is accustomed to
making its own underwear. It is the
old spirit biought from the east and
from across the water of industry and
frugality. Grandmother spends all her
spare time knitting socks for the family,
which could be bought moie cheaply.
Mothers and sisters hem industriously
on articles of muslin, which could be
bought at less expense of time and
money and which would have more style
and give more satisfaction in its wear
Eastern women have exchanged the
industrious sewing habit for lighter
pleasures and for attempts to improve
their minds in reading and study. They

conceiving over their home sewing
tables. Western women on western
farms will come to this stage of devel
opment time. It lies with the repre
sentatives of Minneapolis factories and
jobbing houses to maintain an educa
tional campaign thru retail customers
on their routes which will effect a con
tinuous inciease in orders. At least
it is the history of the business in
other lines that, with the development
of the country, the business grows pro
portionately, or even faster.
The manufacture of the muslin line
of women's and childrens' goods carries
with it the making of flannelette lines
also, a profitable addition for the manu
facturer. Winter work is devoted to
the making of the muslin lines, and the
remainder of the year is devoted usual
ly, in established eastern institutions,
to making winter-wear flannelettes.
Large Twin City Market.
It is conservatively estimated by
capable department heads in twin citv
lobbing houses that the two cities con
sume, wholesale and retail, $400,000
worth of the muslin goods annually.
Minneapolis alone uses $240,000 worth.
At least $125,000 of the business is
done in lobbing territory. In the flan
nelette line goods to the amount of
$125,000 are consumed in the two cities
and their territory every year. Both
lines are capable of strong pushing.
But every bit of the $525,000 worth of
goods is now bought east, while a due
proportion of it might filter thru a
Minneapolis factory, the raw material
coming from the east.
Something of a bait to manufactur
would be the statement by one of
the big jobbing houses of the twin cities
that it does four times the business
the ready-to-wear garments that it
was doing two years ago. This rate of
increase is believed to be capable of
To specifythe underwear included
in the estimates is nightgowns for
women and misses, drawers, chemises
and particularly corset covers in muslin,
nainsooks and thin goods. All articles
are of rapid consumption, requiring re
newal every season. The line includes
also children's drawers, nightgowns and
chemises. After April 1 until fall the
factory would be run on flannelette
nightgowns and skirts, and children's
slumber robes, etc.
Conditions to be considered would be

The Equipment Needed.
Striking an average on a normal ba
sis of manufacture, from 0 to 1,000
machines would be necessary to equip
a plant to turn out the goods required
for Minneapolis trade. This would de
pend on the length of working hours,
the quantity of work turned out by the
different employees and numerous op
erating conditions. The machines for
this style of work are tuckers, stitchers,
gangtackers and hemstitchers.
At least one designer would be re
quired for the factory and several
foreladies." The hands would range
in number according to the machines
and operators. Active and intelligent
girls would do most of the work and
the establishment of the factory would
give employment for 1,000 or more of
them. i.

An Aid to Industrial Growth
given the public affairs committee of the Commercial club thru The Journal's exploitation of
the opportunities offered by Minneapolis has been acknowledged by Wallace G. Nye, sec-
of the committee. Said Mr. Nye today:
"The Minneapolis Journal, thru its intelligent presentation of the resources of this city and state, and
the opportunities that here exist for the merchant, manufacturer or mechanic, is rendering a splendid public
service. A large number of inquiries which have come to the Commercial club are directly traceable to
the Journal articles/and some of these inquiries have brought new industries to the city.
"The special care exercised in suggesting as opportunities in this city only suqh lines of trade or manu-
facture as are suitable for this locality, is commendable. We do not want additional plants in those lines in
which this field is now fully occupied, nor do we want factories established here which would work at a
disadvantage in obtaining raw material or in distributing the manufactured products. We do want more
successful factories and jobbing houses to supply the trade of the great and growing empire which is
tributary to this city. The Journal has suggested a number of openings here for establishments
which, with a fair start, would certainly prove successful.
"In my opinion we have barely begun to realize the fruit of The Journal's work. Results directly
traceable to these articles will follow for a long time to come, and this city and the great northwest will
be the beneficiaries."

goods are manufactured in the east,
while the laces are made in England
and the embroideries in St. Gall. The
fine underwear factories are accustomed
to buying the laces and embroideries
at one time when the regular market
clearing sales are on. Because they
are held in New York, however, these
sales are not any more accessible to the
local eastern buyers than to the west
ern, and as the matter of freight cuts
little figure, Minneapolis is really as
close to the market as many of the
middle-state factories, and even those
farther east.
A New Minneapolis DeviceWhich Looks
Attractive to Capital.
Capital is all that is required to start
the manufacture in. Minneapolis of a
local invention, which promises to find
a market with all manufacturers of
vehicles. At first, the equalizing spring,
as it it called, could be turned out by
custom work from almost any estab
lished foundry with a machineshop.
Should the business increase as rapidly
as prophesied, it would be a question of
only a year or so when it would be
necessary to build a plant exclusively
for the manufacture of this spring. An
annual business of $250,000 is confident
ly expected by persons already inter
ested in the invention. The public
affairs committee of the Commercial
club is investigating and expects to see
the manufacture or the invention se
cured for Minneapolis.
The equalizing spring takes the place
.of the usual body loop and spring for
which the buggy manufacturers pay
$1.92, and it can be made for 82 cents
a set, or less. It can be attached to
buggies, trucks, automobiles and any
road vehicle requiring springs. The
equalizing principle prevents the vehicle
from tipping when loaded. That is,
when a person steps into a buggy the
entire box yields to his weight evenly.
This prevents wearing down a
box"unevenly when one side of the seat ]44'0 Twin City, 13399.
