UNITED TO SECURE
BLOCK 38 FOR P. O.

value of the land and the amount al
lowed by congress. Private subscrip
tions are also talked about.
Members of the delegation will be
back in Minneapolis early next week
and it is probable that amass meeting
will be called for the purpose of ap
pointing a committee on ways and
means to acquire the site indorsed at
esterdav's conference with Secretary
It is expected that the plan of
procedure will take definite shape in
the next two weeks.
Wallace Nye and other members of
the delegation say that the two months
allowed by Secretary Shaw in which to
work out the problem is none too long,
and they will have to hustle to prevent
him from finally locating the postoffice
on block 40.
The secretary was frank yesterday in
saying that if assurances had not been
given that there were good prospects
of securing block 38 or that part of it
which he insists upon having, he would
have closed the deal for block 40 "i
about fourteen seconds.'* In view of
these assurances, however, he was will
ing to give the delegation until Feb. 15
to carry out their promise.
Turned to Block 88.
The Minneapolis delegation at first
seemed inclined to press block 23the
Pence sitebut abandoned that for
block 3S
A. E. Merrill asked if Shaw would
give congress an opportunity for furth
er appropriation. Shaw replied with
marked emphasis that he would not
wait. He was up against similar re
quests from Pittsburg and other cities
and had turned them all down.
He felt that a satisfactory block
could be bought for the $350,000 avail
able, and would .unless interfered with,
award accordingly, unless convincing
evidence Were presented that he should
not do so.
Nobody present at the hearing could
give any definite information as to the
probable cost of block 38. When that
block was first suggested, Secretary
Shaw asked: "How much can we get
that block for?"
A. E Merrill and others suggested
about $1,000,000, which caused the sec
retary to grow cold on the proposition.
T. B. Walker, who came from New
York to be present, said he didn't be
live it would cost more than $750,000.
Secretary Shaw said even that was too
much and the difference couldn't be
made up.
"What about giving bond, say with
in ten days, that we secure as much
ground as you want in that block!'*
asked Mr. Merrill,
"Well," said the secretary, "you
entlemen get us three quarters of that
say 330x210 feet, the long side
on either Washington or Nicollet ave
nnue, within the amount appropriated,
and I'll take the property."
There was some further talk about
the bonding proposition, but the secre
tary did not insist upon that and noTwo
bond will be required.
Some Sharp Clashes.
The talk with the secretary was
entirely informal. The delegation was
composed of representatives of the va
rious business interests and sections of
Minneapolis, each of whom had pre
pared facts bearing on his part of the
question, but none had a chance to de
liver set speeches. Secretary Shaw got
down to business by making some in
quiries about how streetars run and
about the location of wholesale and re
tali houses, manufacturing plants and
banks.
In the course of the conference, there
were some sharp interchanges between
the men present. At one stage of the
pioceedings, W. K. Morison, in con
demning the selection of block 40,
said- "Location of the postoffice oppo
site the Milwaukee station means that
mail will continue to come into that
station for all time. The block 40
pioposition is entirely a Milwaukee
railroad plan." "You don't know
what you are talking about," retorted
Mr. Eustis, who was on the opposite
side of the Secretary's desk.
At another stage, C. L. Sawyer raised
the question of who Mr. Eustis was

I haven't any property near that site.

NORTH DAKOTA CONDITIONS
"Serious" Will Be the Word If the
Cold Continues.
Speoial to The Journal.
Valley City, N. D., Dec. 7.-The state
of North Dakota is facing a fuel fam
ine.
Telephone messages from a score of
towns within a radius of fifty miles of
Valley City reveal a startling situation.
There is practically no fuel in the coun
try. The people were careless in notkeeps
securing their winter supply, and it is
safe to say that 90 per cent of them
buy their fuel in small quantities as
they need it.
There is not enough fuel in the ter
ritory indicated to last bevond a week.
The reserves of the dealers are prac
tically gone and the fuel coming in is
totally inadequate to supply the dex,
mand. The country is in the icy grip
of real winter and two weeks will see
a desperate coal famine unless the rail
roads change their policy.
The traffic congestion in the same
territory remains much the same. There
are practically no wheat markets. The
elevators are getting one or two cars
a week or none at all, and buy as they
can get a little room. There are mil
lions of bushels of wheat in the ele
vators, in open bins and on the ground,
to say nothing of the wheat in grana
ries. The congestion has not been re
lieved. Business is at a standstill and
collections are impossible. The people
are beginning to lose patience and it
will be but a matter of a few days
until they will organize to stop cars of
fuel wherever they may be found. Many
such threats have been made.
Data from Towns.
The following towns have been se
lected as indicating the conditions
There is practically no variance in all
the reports.
Valley CitySeventy tons of coal
and seventy-five cords of wood on the
local market weekly consumption, 200
tons of coal and eighty cords of wood.
The wheat market is fairly good, owing
to the Eussell-Miller Milling company's
mill and elevators. Other elevators are
hampered by lack of cars and only buy
ing as they get empties.
WimbledonFuel only for three or
four days. Will be suffering within a
week unless shipments are received.
Five cars were received for wheat last
week, the first in three weeks nine
this week 200,000 bushels of wheat in
open bins 30,000 elevators.
LuccaThree tons of coal and about
twentv cords of wood on hand. Many
persons haven't a week's supply of
fuel. Only had two cars of coal since
Nov. 1. Elevators are neither buying
wheat nor shipping 80,000 bushels in
the elevators.
LisbonNo fuel to speak of town.
cars of wood were received yes
terday and doled in half-quarter cords.
One dealer has received but two cars
this fall and those eaily in November.
Conditions most acute settlers actually
suffering for fuel. No wheat market
and 235,000 bushels in the elevators.
No Coal at All.
DazeyOut of coal for two weeks
small supply of wood. Fuel famine
imminent. !oal shipped Oct. 20 notbetter,
yet received. As the result of The
Journal articles, seven empty
cars were received on Saturday 25,000
bushels of wheat in the elevators no
market.
LitchvilleAbout eighty tons of coal
and four or five cars or wood on hand,
the famine being broken last week.
This supply will be soon exhausted.
The elevators get about one car each
a week. Many farmers have not sold
any grain 200,000 bushels in the ele
vators, all filled, and no market ex
cept when astray empty is secured.
HopeNo coarand only ten cords of
wood. People in desperate straits
unless a sufficient supply is shortly re
ceived. Elevators all full of grain and
only an occasional stray car, about one
a week, for each elevator. No market,
with 45,000 bushels of wheat in the
elevators.
OriskaSixty tons of coal on hand
and plenty of wood. Elevators not
buying at all, with 200,000 bushels on
hand.
CooperstownSeventy-five tons of
coal on hand, with no wood. Not
enough fuel to last a week. Two cars
of coal received this week after a fam
ine for a week 225j000 bushels of
wheat in elevator. Half the time the
farmers, cannot find a market for a
bushel of grain.
Minot in Distress.
Special to The Journal.
Minot, N. D Dec, 7.With only a
few tons of hard coal in town and very
little soft coal and lignite, the citizens
of Minot are in danger of immediate
suffering.
The thermometer registers 25 below
zero. All the coal companies have
from 100 to 300 orders on their books.
Every stray car of lignite is sold out
in an hour, and only one firm has any
hard coal, and that only in small quan
tities.
A dispatch from Sawyer says several
persons have no coal at all and are
burning boxes and kindling wood.
Granville has plenty of hard coal but
little Hocking Valley. Hard coal is
scarce at Kenmare, but there is anwhere
abundance of lignite, which is mined
on the outskirts of the city.
Berthold, a town of 600, has neither
hard nor soft coal. The people depend
on what lignite the farmers bring into
town, which thus far has kept them
from suffering.
All Depends on the Weather.
Special to The Journal.
Fargo, N. Dec. 7.Since emphatic
protests were made by the coal deal
ers of the state over the shortage, there
been great improvement, more coal
being received at all the larger points.
The greatest trouble has been in keep
ing the small ones supplied. Investi
gation shows that the railroads are
an effort to relieve conditions,
and when unable to fill all shipping
orders, attempts are made to deliver
parts of each.
While there is a general clamor for
larger fuel supplies as a safeguard,
investigation of conditions indicates
that there has been no actual suffer
ing. There was a rush on local coal
dealers for fuel today. All were able
to deliver coal in small orders, but the
greatest difficulty was on wood. Wheat
cars have returned loaded with coal,
but it appears few cars have been left
at Minnesota points for wood, and that
fuel is much more scarce. Continued
cold, weather may make the coal short
age serious. Where Lignite Saves the Day.
Special to The Journal,
Bismarck, N. D., Dec. 7.The fnel
situation in this entire region has been
relieved by plentiful shipments from
the Washburn company's mines, where
a large force of new miners has been
put on. They have obtained about two
thirds as many cars as needed and have
supplied fuel all along the Soo and
Northern Pacific lines east and south
of here. i.\
Trouble is experienced at Lehigh.
Sims and New Salem, west of the Mis
^souri river, in getting ears, but enough
*have been secured to keep npa fair
supply of lignite for near-by towns.

Special to The Journal.
Mitchell, S. D., De 7^-At Mitchell
and points west as far as Murdo on
the Sioux reservation the supply of fuel
is reported to be very good.
South to Scotland and west on the
Armour line and the line from Yankton
to Platte, conditions are very bad and
at no town is there anywhere near
enough coal. Should a blockade occur
there would not be sufficient coal to
last a week.
A coal representative visited all
those towns less than a week ago and
fears that unless the situation is re
lieved in a few days much suffering
will be caused.
East of here on both the Milwaukee
and Omaha roads the situation is much
-with on immediate failure of
the coal supply imminent.
In the Pierre Country.
Speoial to The Journal.
Pierre, S. D., Dec. 7.Obobojo,
twenty miles north, reports four inches
of snow and a fuel supply for only a
few days. At Capa, forty miles west,
and Midland, fifty miles out, the snow
report is about ten inches, and coal on
hand for several weeks.
The snow has been heavy all over the
western portion of the state, but with
little wind or severe cold. 'There may
be local cases of suffering, but nothing
serious is expected. There is no short
age of fuel in a general sense.
Sioux Falls Well Supplied.
Speoial to The Journal,
Sioux Falls, S. D., Dec. 7.The first
genuine cold snap of the winter was ex
perienced here today. Sioux Falls and
towns in a fifty-mile radiuB are well
provided with fuel. Dealers have good
supplies.
Bemnant Sale History.
The first remnant sale of his store
was started by J. W. Thomas in 1886,
about two years after his co-partner
ship with the Hales. The method of
disposing of remnants previous to that
time was that now in practice by many
firmsput them on the counter each
week or month. There were not enough
to cause any stir, and, as a rule, after
a few of the better remnants were sold,
the rest "stayed by" until they be
came an eyesore to customers and clerks
alike.
Mr. Thomas suggested the having of
a general cleaning up at the end" of
each season, making a real business of
it, adding other bargains as odds and
ends and broken lines remained to be
disposed of. The first sale of this char
acter was held in December of that
year. It proved such a great success
that it was repeated the next spring,
and so on every six months until the
present timetwenty years.
The crowds increased with each suc
cessive sale, until it became a problem
the goods were coming from to
supply the great multitude of people
who came in answer to the advertise
ments. In the meantime, the regular
business more than doubled, conse
quently the resources In remnants and
side bargains became greater each year,
so that they have managed to more
than satisfy patrons, and Thomas'Rem
nant Sales have become the most pop
ular events in dry goods circles, the
ladies expecting and looking forward
to the announcement each sprine and
fall.
For each sale they engage from one
hundred to one hundred and twenty
five extra salespeople, cashiers, bun
dlers, etc., and the preparations aro
commenced weeks in advance, all the
arrangements being completed to make
the event successful, not only in dispos
ing of merchandise, but also to insure
comfort to patrons, the prompt deliv
ery of goods and all the many details
connected with a business of this mag
nitude.

Fuel Supply in Many Towns Is on the
Bagged Edge.
Speoial to The Journal.
Huron, S. D., Dec. 7.The fuel sup
ply here is very limited. Dealers are
unable to get orders filled owing to the
lack of cars Hoping for a reduction in
price, incident to a decrease in freight
rates, many failed to put in the usual
fuel supply in the fall, which makes
the demand now more urgent.
The conditions within a radius of
fifty miles are worse than here. Men
from Yale, Cavour and other places are
coming to Huron with teams for coal.
Several points on the Great Northern
are practically without coal or wood,
and are ordering from here with little
prospect of getting more than enough to
last a few days.

workrooms we do not share the responsibility of
careless workmanship with any outside tailor
shops or "sweat shops."
A SPECIAL FEATURE
We want to emphasize the fact that we jj
specialize Men's Winter Overcoats at.,. vjtv
If you don't happen to know about it, they will
surprise and surely please you.

DIAMONDS AS AN
INVESTMENT
Diamonds axe more stable than real estate and more easily con-
vertible into cash at short notice. The ever-increasinsr demand and the
limited supply assure a steady advance in price. So that one or ten
years hence diamonds bought today will bring more than the orfcrinal
purchase price Money put into diamonds is better than in the bank,
because it cannot then be checked against or spent.
Following are Just a few selections from our regular stock, which we
are offering at about 25 per cent less than the same could be bought for
elsewhere
Necklaces $200 up to $5000
Pins and Pendants $15 up to $600
Rings ...-........$10 to $1000
Scarf Pins $10 to $125
We have single strings of Oriental Pearls for neck tip to -SSOfMl
a string. -v~*w
It is because our diamond parlors are on the second floor, where
rent and expenses are much lower than on the street floor, that we
make prices so much lower than any other dealer in the city. Our
stock of loose stones Is the largest in the northwest. Stones mounted
in any style desired.
