Fifteen Years Ago.
When the Minnesota Title Insurance
& Trust company located in the Oneida
building at Fourth and First avenue fif
teen vears ago, the officers were fre
quently rallied on the fact that th ey
had chosen a positifh quite one side
from the business center. Mr. Barnes'
answer to such observations was that
while the company Is location might be
at the time somewhat aside from the
center, it was certainly in the line of
prospective growth. stated that
Fourth street was a coming treet, and
that within ten years property on
Fourth street would be worth quite as
much as'that upon Third. This was
thought hardly possible, and yet within
five years Fourth street values had
caught up with those of Third, street,
a'n'd are now considerably higher. I
fact, some say 50 per cent higher. Later
on Mr. Barnes predicted that not only
was First avenue S to be a good street,
but also Second avenue S, and that the
financial center would eventually be
at Second avenue S and Fifth street.
also stated that Fifth street prop
erty would soon be worth quite as much
as Fourth street, and many persons are
alreadv acknowledging that Fifthstreet
is probably quite as good as Fourth
street, and in some respects even better.
Predictions Come True.
"It must be admitted," said Mr.
Barnes yesterday,- "that not only are
First and Second avenues and lower
Fifth street coming to the front very
rapidly, but that even Third avenue S
is to be a good business street, and
that Seventh street, from Hennepin
to Third avenue S is to be one of the
very best retail streets in the city.
Mr. Barnes made-an observation with
reference to one of the influences work
ing in favor of the locality mentioned
which has, perhaps, escaped the notice
of most business men'. calls 'atten
tion to the fact that nearly all the
frontage upon First, Second and Third
avenues S, and also upon Fifth, Sixth,
eventh and Eighth streets, between
those avenues, is made up of large hold
ings. states that, by actual refer
ence to the records, he finds the aver
age number of front feet to each holder
upon these avenues is 132 feet, and that
upon the cross streets the average hold
ing per owner is also unusually large.
argues that this means that a much
better class of buildings will be con
structed than if the holdings were small.
Holdings Are Narrow.
Predictions of Discerning Realty Dealers Regarding Fu-
ture Prominente of Section Between First and Fourth
Avenues South and Inside of EighthJStreet,,\Once
Laughed a% Are Now Being Fully
and development of large
citie is interesting to note and
analyze, as well as the changes,
and rearrangements of different locali
ties in those cities. A close observer
can- easily discover in any city with
whose conditions he is, familiar, cer
tain'natural advantages which underlie
the changes and which are sure to. affect
favorably or unfavorably, the city's
growth in any direction..
XL Barnes, president of the Murtve
sota Title Insurance & Trust company,
made certain predictions nearly thTee
years ago in the columns of r
nal, regarding the future prominence,
i'n a business way, of that section of
Minneapolis lying between First.and
Fourth avenues S, and inside of Eighth
street. The unfolding of events tends
to justify the foresight of Mr. Barnes.
Any citizen who comes downtown can
not, fail to see man-y building improve
ments in the district -described, where
a few vears ago the prospects did not
seem bright for any change in the dis
mal outlook.
"It might be noted in this connec-
tion." added Mr. Barnes, "that the.
holdings on lower Hennepin, lower Nic
ollet and on Washington avenue, are
usually narrow, many of the frontages
being only 22 feet. This, doubtless,
had much to do with the fact that the
first buildings erected in these locali
ties have remained, and the result has
been that business has moved farther
up town to newer localities, where large
frontages were owned, and newer and,
larger buildings erected."
Inasmuch as many deals affecting real
estate and mortgages are closed in the
office of Mr. Barnes, and he is himself
chairman of the valuation com
mittee of the Minneapolis Eeal
Estate board, he is in a
position to have unusual facilities
for observation and to make well-found
ed predictions. I feel certain," says
he of the future, "that such men as
W. L. Harris, C. W. Johnson and oth
ers*, who nave predicted that the retail
business center will eventually, be at
Second avenue S and Seventh street,
are not far out of tljp way."
Title Registered Under System Is Final,
According to Supreme Court.
In a recent decision handed down in
the state supreme court the constitu
tionality of the Torrens law relating
to the registration of the title to real
estate was upheld, and as the law now
stands, a title once registered under this
svstem is final, and no attack can be
made on a registered title on account of
any prior alleged defect in such title.
A lien for taxes held by the state is
not even excepted from the finality of
the title as registered
The law had previously been held
valid and this last point was raised by
an addition to' the Torrens law passed
by the' legislature last winter, which
provided that the state should be
joined as" a .party whenever it appeared
that it had any interest in or lien upon
the land. I the case of the National
Bond & Security company .against
Cordelia Hopkins and others, defend
ants, and the State' of Minnesota, ap
pellant, the district court refused to
open and set-aside a judgment rendered
in favor of the applicant and on the
appeal the supreme court sustained the
lower court.
Luther S. Cushing of St. Paul Says
Northwestern Realty Will Rise.
Luther S. Cushing of St. Paul, who
controls a large block of business prop
erties in Minneapolis, as agent, has re
turned from the east with a fine lot'of
real estate predictions for next season.
Mr. Cushing predicts that, altho the
market is very satisfactory today, it
will be stronger' in the spring. Mr.
Cushing says:
"The rapid and steady growth 'of
the northwest ,ha
-attracted the atten
tion of eastern"Jinvestors,
and this, with
.its growing importance in th financial
world, makes it:one,of the blest invest
ment fields in the country.

in which to' invest tHeir-money. Such
conditions as now exist' iii the Stock and

of heavier* investments in .'real property,
and there is/e'verv 4ndica,tibn that such
"a period 7has aTaoiit- arrived,' and' when
it does, the northwest is the field to
which the" invested mainly look. This
means that, real'.' estate will probably be
higher here "itt* the spring than it is

Annual Gathering at, Duluth Next
Month Will B Important.
The annual meeting of the- builders'
exchanges of Minnesota, wilTbe held in
Duluth next month, when business of
importance will come up. I is. to be
expected that every exchange in the
state will be represented. An invita

formed at Fargo during the summer and
to the builders of Grand Forks, who
have an organization'in view, to send
representatives. While these exchanges
are outside the state, they have much
the same things to meet and contend as
the Minnesota builders, and the North
Dakota builders as a whole ha ve been
contending with as eccentric a form of
official vagary in the new capitol con

of builders. The meeting, as a whole,

shut up in the women's apartments .in
their home, and nobody ever sees them
again, unless by accident, except their
male relatives and husbands and, of
course, their women friends and kins
folk. This is true only of the better
classes. There is a class of female ser
vants and working women who go freely
about the streets wherever their work
happens to# take them, but the men sol
emnly cherish a funny make-believe that
these women are not there at all. Tb?
can't s^e them they don't know they
are in sight* and to be caught talking to
one would be to forfeit the respecl of
the entire community.
Some Extracts From the Proceedings of
Plupy's Debating Club."
American Illustrated Magazine.
At 7 p.m. Fatty ponderously made the
following announcement:
"Fellers, the subject this evenin' is a
debate, which is the mightiest, the pen
or the sword" (pronounced soo-ward).
"Now, I-have wrote more rules so you
fellers won't get fighting, and everything
will be fair.
"Rule 1. No calling each other Hers.
"Rule 2. No plugging of spit balls
"Bule 3. No 2 fellers can debate at
onst. 4,
"Rule 4. Every feUer has got to stop
talking when the chairman tells' hira to,
and keap still two.
"Rule 5. I am the chairman.
"The first feller'' who is in favor of
sword will now speak. Time!'.'
At the call of time Billy Swett stepped
forth, bowed, grinned and began a mas
terly argument.
"Fellers: The sword is mightier than
the pen. Why, because it is longer and
bigger round and has a handle to grab
it by. Course it is. I should think enny
body would know that. When brave
Horafcus held the the brMge, what did
he do it witha pen? "Vj^il, I guess not
bad. How long could he have stood
against the three fellers who come at
him? What did he hit the great Lord
of Luna with? *Did he jab him with a
pen? No, yi bet he* didn't, .he pasted
him with a sword, and he had to pull
three times before he could get it out.
He had to put. his foot on his gozzle and
then to pull like time. Sposen he had
jabbed him with a pen, I guess it would
come out easy."
