ST. PAUL./ ] A City of Wonderful Growth and Magnificent Prospects. *- A Resume of the Progress of the City Goring the Year 1883. . ii A. Pliftnompiial Growth—Some of the Merchants, Artisans and Profes sional Men Wlio add to Our Prosperity* The following address was delivered byGen. T ihn B. Sanborn, drcsident of the chamber amerce, Dee. 31, 1882, before that Gentlemen of the St. Paul Chamber of Com merce: The close of our current year finds the chamber in a sound condition, financially, find with more poweT to do goodand a broud -11 Held for action than ever before. The assets over all liabilities are §11, -211.86. in addition to this, 105 perpetual members have agreed to take the bonds of the cham ian amount not less than $500 each, whenever it. i> deemed advisable to purchase land and erect a suitable building for our- Belves and the board of trade; thus placing at isal the addition sum of $52,500, . mount available $63, -711.H0. ();:r entire disbursements for all purposes for the present year have been $5, -12. In this vastly improved condlton liould achieve much more in the than in the past, great as their achievc !i;.\e been. The past year lias been one of unusual Hi, prosperity and development in all of the country. In this city the hopes mosl sanguine have been more than realized. Our population has reached a number between ninety and one hundred md, estimated from all data at our com enrollmenl of the children for our • !.-, which in 1880, when by the federal census we had 34,000 people, was 4,338, now ,:,o. The number of employes in our manufac turing establishments was in 1880, 6,029; the number now employed is 12,267. The number of employes in the whole- Bale trade in 18S0 did ni I exceed 2,000, while in 1882 the number was 4,684 and now ■ -Is 5,000. Tie- assessed valuation of property in the city, which in LBBO was for personal £8,827,753, and real estate $21, -040,634, and in 1882 was for personal prop erty $10,040,538, and real estate $30,454,499, a reached at a fair valuation $60,000, -000. The amount of business clone through the Hice has more than doubled since 1880. So the rule may be applied to any or every ;: of business, and the same result is obtained, viz.. that the same volume of busi .iii.l the number of persons employed in it has more than doubled since the census of 1880. The increase in the wholesale trade of .. r 1.881, is $20,372,495, for the full details of which you are referred to the an report now ready for distribution. While all branches of business show a wonderful increase, that of the wholesale ry trade is most striking. From 1848 to 1881 this trade has grown to $6,350,000 for the latter year, bui in the single year of ii leaped forward to $13,533,000, thus gaining more in a single year than in the ■eding thirty years. The lumber trade 581, bad reached $1,348,000, but in 1882 prang forward to $3,439,622, more in one year than in all our ts existence. asl increase in the volume of busi required more banking capital and for its transaction, and the i of our national banks, which Was tin lBS2,"_has been increased to $4, -700.000, with a surplus of $870,431. making al ■ of •-.'. 570,431. This exceeds 103,979 the capital slock and surplus the other national bank of the state of Minnesota, as appears by the reportofthe comptroller of the currency for 1882, which shows the aggregate of capital and surplus of the thirty of the national banks in the stale , utsidc of St. Paul to he $4,167,452.71. The capital of the state banks in the city, which in 1881 was $300,000, has now been increased^ to 700,000, making the aggregate banking capital of the city at this time $6,270,431. There are in Min nes la twenty-four banks, organized under the state laws," with a capital stock of $2,333. -of which amount the banks in St. Paul have $700,000, which leaves for other banks $1,633,750, which added to the entire amount Of stock and surplus of national banks out side the city, which is $4,167,452,71, makes $5,801,202.71, or $469,288 less than the stock of the St. Paul banks. This amount would seem sufficient to transact all legiti mate business upon safe and prudent busi ness principles. For a city with so much business and capi tal it must be said that our public improve ments, though great and many, in proport ion to our growth, progress slowly. Yet great progress has been and is being made. Sewer age has been provided for all the more thick ly settled portions of the city; a system of waterworks has been projected and adopted thai now supplies large portions of the with water, and will soon supply all us; streel paving is progressing; rapidly, and stone sidewalks have been adopted by some property holders, and or. I upon all str, els where large business is sacted. A large, well constructed Mar ket ball, an elegant high school building", and » house of correction have been built, and provision made for the erection of a court house and city hall commensurate with the future greatness of the city. With all these expenditures taxes hav< been kept at a mod i rate rate, and the public debt has not reach. eil 3 per cent, of the' value of the property et to taxation. The early reputation of our climate for salubrity is sustained by all correct vital sta. ..-ties, and our city ha* been perfectly free from all epidemics and extraordinary dis eases during the whole period of its exist uce. There seems tobe but little just now in this city requiring the immediate special at tention of this body. A new state capitol building has been completed—the erection new courthouse and city hall has been provided for—a new, and in all respects a first-class opera house will soon be completed —a new hotel, equal in all respects to the best anywhere,fully planned, and arrange ments made for its completion by the time that the traveling classes will commence to make their trips to witness the great natural wonders of 'cue Yellowstone park, means provided to erect a chamber of commerce building, when you shall consider the time opportune, the improvements of streets, sidewalks aud parks, going forward as fast as the public requirements demand, upon economical basis and sound principles, the commerciel supremacy of the city secur ed, a railway system fully developed and in operation, all having their headquarter build ing- in this city, that recognizes all our rights and claims, including the headquarter bull lings of the Manitoba, Northern Pacific, Omaha, and Duluth companies, connecting us by through trains with the commercial cities of all the adjoining states and territo ries, with the lake ports of our great in land sea and the shores of the two oceans; with a system of common schools unsurpass ed, where the increasing numbers of our children may be early and properly educated; with an abundance of church edifices to meet the demands of every sect aud creed it would seem that some of us, who have been long in the harness, might be withdrawn and take a. desired, if not a needed rest. The future of the city is assured. The dream of its early founders is already more than realized, while the future is brighter with promise than ever before. We find ourselves as if by magic placed on the most expeditious and economical line of transpor tation of that commerce that has built up all the great commercial cities of ancient and modern times; the commerce• that builtup the pre-historic cities of Troy and Smyrna; from which rose to famous Commerce, wealth and power Ninevah on the Tigris, or Babylon of fabulous riches and splendor on the Euphrates, which has many times re stored Smyrna from desolation, built Rome, and for three centuries has poured its gems and gold, its merchandise and wealth into the lap of London, and made her the greatest of modern commercial cities. By the completion of the Northern Pacific we are brought nearer in point of time for, and expense of transportation to, the products and commerce of Japan, China and the east ern portion of the Indies than was Ninevah, Babylon or Smyrna in the days of their glory and power. It our statesmen can devise some plan whereby our supremacy in the car rying trade of the Pacific ocean can be estab lished and maintained, there is no reason why we should not seize upon and henceforth control that commerce which in all periods of the world's history has enriched beyond computation the people that have held it in their grasp. It is a com raerce with nations having more than one-half the whole population of the globe, and accustomed to wear fabrics pro duced from cotton grown in this country. Why should not the cotton goods required by six hundred millions of people in the Orient be manufactured by labor and machinery along the line of this new highway of nations, and be laid down at their doors more cheap ly than ever before? Thereby a new and vast field for both labor and capital would be opened, most remunerative to both, and un speakable benefits be derived by those that produce and those that consume. The whole value of goods imported into Asia during the past year is $754,669,000. Of this amount Great Britain imported $281, -631,000, while the United States imported only $17,510,000. And during the same period Great Britain received in exports $225,806,000, and the United States $58, -838,000. This vast advantage is secured by Great Britain by maintaining her supremacy in the carrying trade on the ocean and on all the navigable rivers of the Orient. That government has been able to subsidize lines of steamers on the ocean and on riyers with out demoralization or detriment, and this has accomplished the result. The profits of this carrying trade must exceed $100,000,000 annually, andGrcai Britain receives them all. Musi we, as Americans, admit that we have reached a point in our political history where to grant a money subsidy for any purpose is to corrupt many public men and send favor ite leaders of both parties to dishonored graves; Whether the prize Offered in the controlofor fair competition for the com merce of the Pacificia not sufficient to justify one more *tempt, iv the hope that the les bous of the past and the purer patriotism of , this day may not be sufficient to enable our public men to resist the temptaton to take advantage of public necessity for persona] gain is a question worthy the most serious consideration of our merchants, officers, statesmen and people. With the Northern Pacific completed and a first-class line of American steamers on the Pacific, the products of Japan, of China, and the East Indies can be laid down at our doors in thirty days. It is not too much to be lieve that a few years will witness through bills of lading between St. Paul, Yokohoma, Canton and Song Kong, and the fabrics manufactured by our water powers on the Otter Tail, St. Louis, St. Croix and the Mis sissippi, now running to waste, will find their readiest and best market with the merchant princes of the Orient, who hence forth will soonest find the west by traveling east, and that thereby the countless millions of wealth that hitherto have been received by the cities of western Asia and Europe will be received and retained by the producing classes and merchants of the Northwest. GROWTH IX POPULATION. St. Paul's growth in population has been decidedly erratic. During the year 1838, when Parrant began to make the history of the town, there were but three white persons within the present corporate limits. It re quired no less than nine years' time—or un til 1847—t0 bring the population up to fifty .souls. Within two years, or in 1840, there was a "boom" for the hew trading post, and the number of people increased to 400. Then came ten years of remarkable develop ment, and St. Paul found itself quite a metropolis in ISOO, with a population of 10.(500. The live years follow ing were unpropitious, and the population in that time 7 (1865) had increased only 2,610, bringing the number up to 13,210. Three years of rapid growth followed, and in 180S the city numbered 20,118 population. From that time until the close of 1870 there was a decidi d lull in the affairs of St. Paul, as the increase in inhabitants was only about 2,000. The succeeding ten years witnessed a steady, solid devclopement, and the year ISBO was ushered in with an estimated population of 40,000. The census of that year demonstra ted that the citizens of St. Paul were not giv en to exaggeration, for the actual returns gave the official count at 41,495. I'IIEXOMEXAL GKOWTH. From that year, 1880, dates a phenomenal growth; an increase in population never equaled by any American city of equal size. Tlie figures given are not mere estimates or guess work, but are the result of actual count or canvass on the part of the publishers of city directory aud the postolnee department. To state it brielly aud simply the popu lation of St. Paul has consider ably more than doubled within three years, as is proven by the fact that the city directory of 1880, when the United States census placed the inhabitants at 41,498, contained 10,399 names, while the directory for 1883 contains 35,351 names, or an increase of 18,952 within the specified three years. This remarkable growth can only be appreciated when comparison with THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, FRIDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 15, 1884. the growth of other cities is given in illustra tion : PREBBOT POPULATIOS AXD COMPARISON'S. As before stated, the number of names in the St. Paul directory foa 1833 is 35.351. In estimating population upon the basis of i names in the business directory, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland. Buffalo aud Kansas City use the multiple 3)^, which, applied to St. Paul would cive a population of 133,728* Milwaukee, Indiunopolis,Toledo, Denver and other cities generally use the multiple 3, which would give a population of 106,053. Indeed, estimating by the very lowest and most conservative standard, 2J£, and St. Paul is assured of 88,370 inhabitants, or an equal number with Indian apolis and over one-third more- than Kansas City. However, the in crease in names in the city directory the past year is surprising, when comparisons are made with other cities aud the difference in size of the respective places is taken into consideration. For instance the increase iv names in the Chicago directory for 1883 over 1882 is but 3,450, while that of St. Paul is 5.017. "Toledo shows an increase of but 2,145 names, and Milwaukee, (which claims to be growing fast) only 4,459. In other words, St. Paul is the most rapidly growing city on the continent to-day. having actually added more persons te its population the past year than has Chicago. BUSINESS BULLETIN. We take pleasure in presenting to the pat rons of The Globe, a classified business directory, embracing the larger portion of our business houses and manufacturing es tablishments. We make a special request of our business men that they retain this im pression and post it in a conspicuous place in their oliiee or place of business, as it will prove of inestimable value as a ready refer ence sheet, being carefully compiled, con venient in form and comprehensive in char acter. To the general reader this directory will not be without interest, affording as it does an indication of the general expansion of the business of St. Paul during the past few years, and supplying them with a refer ence whereby they may easily locate any business house with which they may have business to transact. In fact, the business index herein contained, is of sufficient mo ment to every person having the interest of our city at heart to insure it a wide extended Circulation, and for that purpose we have printed a sufficient edition so that all may be supplied) and all parties can obtain the same for mailing purposes at this Office. As v whole this index is a particularly good ad vertisement to our city at large, and it will speak for itself and make apparent its own merits. A. ATTORNEYS.

The Railway Cojnter of the North western System* The Extent of the Transportation In terests of the City. Some of the Co-relative Branches of Trade Gentertag Here. St. Paul is the acknowledged railway cen ter of the Northwestern system. Nine great railway corporations make this city their headquarters and chief terminal point "r il principal terminus. One hundred and fifty flve passenger trains run in and out of the St. Paul union depot daily. Of the greet railway centers of the country, New York Is the chief for the eastern syst* m, Chicago f r the central western, Clncineati for the south ern, St. Louis for the southwestern, and St. Paul for the northwestern. In actual Impor tance as a railway center, St. Paul now ranks third, Chicago and New York alone leading. St. Paul has achieved this Importance during the construction of the Northern Pacific; and with that system perfected and completed the future railway development of the city eaa scarcely be estimated. The present railway system makes directly tributary to St. Paul the entire northern half of Wisconsin, with its lumber product of over 2,000,000,000 feet annually, and the now developing mineral resources of that region; tho commerce of the great lakes that centers at Dulutb; thq agricultural and other products of Souther*' Dakota, Minnesota and northern Iowa; thej forests and mine? of northern Minnesota^ tho vast and varied productions and resouA ces of Manitoba; and the present and pro-.' pectivo development of Dakota, Montana. Idaho, Oregon, Washington territory and Alaska. A field euoh aa peither New Yorl^ nor Chicago ever dreamed of monopolizing as thepbiet financial and commercial center. This railway development fa practical^ the) result of about ten yea/a' labor; for, In JST!^ the Northern Pacific was da much a failujjb u# it now is a duceesff. The Northern Pacific, the St. Paul, Minuet apolis & Manitoba, the Chicago, St. PauK Minneapolis & Omaha, and the fit. Paul & Duluth, make this city their terminal Bead* quarters; and the three first named hava erected here commodious attd ftubstantial buildings for their general Office*, The local improvements rflarle in St Paul during the} last year by the railroads aggregate $830,000. Most important, however, with a view to the future ot the city, is the pur* chase of large tracts of land, aggrega ting about four hundred acres, m taej northern part of St. Pan], by tho Northern Pacific Toad for Us terminal pas senger and freight depots, Shops, cattle yarcte, etc., and to afford transfer facilities with its eastern connections on a scale co-extensive with the anticipated magnitude of transcon tinental traffic. The new stock yards are in tended to accommodate the cuttle trade with Montana, which promises to make St. Paul one of the chief cattle markets of the Union. The importance of St. Paul as a railroad en ter may be partly measured by the following business statistics of the union depot: Number of passenger trains arriv ing and departing daily, IU; number of pieces of ba| bandied per day, 3,500; estimated a\ number of passengers arriving and depart ing daily, 14,000. Seventeen tons of United Statei mail are handled daily from incoming amd outgoing trains, and 200 freight ears per day are transferred in the yards of the union depot. But the railroad transfer busi ness of St. Paul is chiefly done at the half way transfer station, where nearly all the e^st and west lines connect for that pur pose.
