The first expression uttered by the thousands
of visitors that during the summer season come
to St. Paul is that of surprise at the extent of
the city, the magnificence of her public buildings,
her large blocks of business houses, the river
commerce, her railroads, private residences, ele
gant drives along her broad and beautiful aven
ues, her majestic hills, which give such a diver
sified appearance to the city and so many points
of vantage for beholding the country around.
There can be no doubt in regard to the immense
advantage these magnificent bluffs are to this
great center of trade. St. Paul is blessed above
almost any other city in the United States, if
not in the world, by her vast magnificence of
scenery. Take it for all in all, its beautiful
bluffs, its valleys that wind around among the
bluffs, the - wide expanse of table
land up over the city and extending
out for miles upon miles beyond the face of these
bluffs, the river as it sweeps down from the
northwest, past those noble and thickly wooded
elevations on the south side of the river and
passes along under Dayton's Bluff, on the east,
in connection with the widely beautiful topog
raphy of the town from the river to the north
ward, and it is very doubtful, at least, if there
is another city in the Sfcitcil States that present
such just and well established claims to beauty
and picturesque loveliness that does the city of
St. Paul. .It is not surprising that people who
come here should be so surprised and should ex
press themselves in such terms of admiration.
For location, beauty of natural scenery, health
fulness, superiority as regards drainage, it has
no superior. Its vast trade comes naturally to
it. The fact that it is the last town on
the upper Mississippi to which
steamboats can come, affords it a cheap outlet
for its mannfacturies, and also cheaper rates for
all its supplies from the lower Mississippi. These
are among her natural advantages. As regards
her trade, it may be said that her business men
are among the shrewdest and most clear-headed
to "be found. As a class they arc broad in their
views and look forward to the probable outcome
of each business transaction they engage in, and
not to some little temporary advantage to be
gained. With these special advantages there is
no surprise whatever that she should have such a
fixed and solid position as the first and leading
city of the northwest, from which no power has
been able to remove her, or to cause her to have
any uneasiness. The natural elements are
here united in a wonderful degree,
and the consequence is that business flows to
St. Paul in the northwest in the . same that it
flows to New York City in the east, The natur
al laws of trade bring all kinds of business to
New York, simply because it happens to occupy
a peculiarly favorable location with reference to
the water route and because all business seems
naturally to radiate from that point. In the
same way is St. Paul . situated in regard to the
northwest. •. The water routes to the Gulf of
Mexico and the Atlantic ocean are : before us,
while the immense wheat fields of Dakota, the
Red River of the - North, the Montana cattle
ranches with .their beards of thousands upon
thousands of head of cattle, her immense gold,
silver and coal mines, and in fact the whole
west to the Pacific ocean is tributary to St. Paul.
This is merely a rough outline of the situation,
Of course when one comes here for the first
time and gazes upon this young giant of
of a city, he is naturally astonished, on account
of its solid and rapid growth and its vast wealth
and {inexhaustible resources, both present and
The peculiarly favorable natural position of
St. Paul, as very briefly referred to above, was
many years ago recognized by the railroads. The
managers of all these great corporations, with
the sharpness of vision for which they are noted
many years ago took in the situation and began
to shape these roads for St. Paul, and from that
time to the present they have looked upon- St.
Paul as the natural terminus of their roads. As
a natural consequence every line of road that is
seeking a northwes.ern business radiates from
St. Paul. Commerce and manufactures, are
effected in precisely the same manner
as were the railroads, and are also struggling
with the railroads to get advatageous locations
in this great trade center. The supremacy of
the city of St. Paul as the financial and commer
cial center of the northwest, as it is the general
center and headquarters of the railroads has long
been admitted fact. The monied power of the
world sees this, and that is a power that is never
mistaken. The business of the northwest re
quires a large capital, and as a natural conse
quence that capital accumulates in the city of St.
Paul, This is the reason why St. Paul banks to
day carry a capital larger than the capital of all
the banks of the state outside of St. Paul com
bined. Let there be no mistake about this, for
it means a great deal. The statement
is, that all the capital in the banks of all
the cities and towns in the state of
Minnesota when put together is not as large and
do not amount to as large a sum as the capital in
use by the banks of St. Paul.
With .such a superiority of banking capital, it
is very natural that the business of St. Paul
should be large. It would hardly pay for the
banks to hold so many millions of money here in '
their vaults idle. If there was no business here
the money would soon be removed elsewhere
where there would be use for it. If anything
more was required to demonstrate -the superi
ority of St. Paul it could be easily found in her
vast jobbing trade, which reaches to Puget
Sound, and to every nook and corner of the
great ■ northwest, through . Dakota, Mon
tana, Idaho, Washington Territory
and even up into Manitoba. It is here in St.
Paul that the largest and strongest dry goods,
grocery, drug, paper and fur houses, in the Mis
sissippi valley ore located and permanently es
tablished. It has come to that point where some
of the wholesale houses in St. Paul are not sur
passed in the amount of business by any house
in Chicago. There was a time when Chicago
and St. Louis could maintain a competition with
St. Paul in regard to large government and other
contracts, that time has passed, and on equal
grounds, with no favors to either side. St. Louis
and Chicago cannot successfully compete to-day
with St. Paul. In 1865, there were but five or
six wholesale houses here in St. Paul and in
that year the largest amount ' sold was
$100,000. In 1870 the wholesale trade amounted
to $9,813,000. It was not till the close
of 1881. however, that the figures presented a
really large showing, resulting in a total of $46,
--555,999. i Then began a growth and development
in the wholesale business of St. Paul that has
never been equaled by any American trade
centre, that at once jumped the wholesale busi
ness to $72,048,771 in 1883. This is merely an
indication of what is likely to occur in the near
future. In a single year she distributed $72,
--048,771 in goods throughout northern Wisconsin,
Minnesota, Dakota and the far west. Here iB a
region of millions of acres of land in the north
west that are opened to emigrants, and which is
fast filling up with farmers, or those
that will most likely become farmers. All
these thousands of people that are going up there
have got to be fed and clothed, and furnished
with fanning and other utensils and stock. ~ All
their supplies will naturally go through St. Paul,
which is the natural gateway to this field of wealth
and population. The railroads came here be
cause it was for their interest to come here.
They came because trade naturally came here,
and all this business for this great region will
follow the same route. \ All the trade must nat
urally flow through here for the whole northwest
clean across to the Pacific coast, and though - de
signing and selfish men and communities may
seek to cause it to go in some other - unnatural
course they can make no serious impression
upon the great volume of western
business. This subject might be enlarged upon,
but it is not necessary. The outline given above
is sufficient to set people to thinking for them

Seventh Streetward the Business Em
pire Takes its Way.
Ferdinand Knauft's Great Achievement in
Turning Trade That Way.
As Seventh street, the coming thorough
fare for the retail business of St. Paul, goes
proudly on in her grand march of improve
ments, the old residenter and the recent in
habitant * can but Btand In awe and
with speechless surprise contemplate what
the next year or two will bring forth on this
already magnificent street.
In a jog down East Seventh street the past
week our attention was abruptly brought to
bear on a structure that as it seemed to the
eye of a man who seldom goes that way had
sprung into massive existence like the bibli
cal gourd leaf.GQuickly catching our^bearings
we remembered the old brown frame resi
dence which occupied the corner of Pine
street and Seventh and recollected
also the army of workmen who a few months
ago began the excavation at thfoi spot for a
business block which Mr. F. Knauft intend
ed to erect. When the old land mark re
ceived its first touches of demolition it was
little known then what Mr. Knauft's inten
tions were; but now that on the old familiar
spot there stands one of the most 6uperb
structures in St. Paul, we can stand and ad
mire and readily see that Mr. Knauft
meant no small thing when he
commmenced the foundations for
this beautiful building. It attracts universal
attention; the business man as he daily
passes to his routine of labor and the stran
ger who traverses our charming avenues, ab
sorbing the many sights that bewilder the
visitor to our city, and we, as best we can,
take up the commendation expressed by
every person in our city who has seen the
building, and cheerfully congratulate Mr.
Knauft on the perfect success he has attain
ed in the erection of this block.
The building is three fine stories
splendid in height with ample basements
finished inside as well as the upper portion,
making four elegant floors.
The principal materials are pressed brick
and beautifully cut stone, the many ex
quisite designs in the latter producing an
effect seen nowhere else in the city, and the
whole is in a style of architecture that indi
cates the artists consummate skill in his pro
There are four main store rooms on the
ground floor, two of them on the corner of
Pine street being thrown into one.
Over these two first floor
rooms the block is divided
into offices on the second floor and the third
story devoted to flats.
In these two stories the arrangement is
the most perfect we have ever seen and em
braces comfort and conveniencies seldom
found in a building of this class.
They are reached by a broad, easy stair
waj', which, when It reaches the second and
third floors, spreads before the visitor the
most spacious of hallways, large, square,
splendidly ventilated and finished. From
these halls open the offices, single and en
suite, and a finer set of rooms
with more perfect light and general arrange
ments it has never been our good fortune to
These represent just half of the building.
The other half is planned for a large retail
business, and consists of the four floors in
each department, open entire and connected
in case so desired with elevators.
AlEew inquiries developed a good many
things that we are certain will thoroughly in
terest our readers, and for their benefit we
give them what we found out.
Mr. John Matheis, the king of carpet
men, and one of our oldest
and shrewdest business men, has rented the
splendid two rooms described as in the corner
of the building on Pine street and Seventh.
Mr. Matheis is one of our best known mer
chants, and his perfect business tact and al
ways quick perception has brought him many
saccessful turns, and his clear sighted selec
tion of this locality for a branch of his famous
Third street house is sure to prove the many
successful traits mentioned of him, and open
him a field of trade, which though
not new, is rapidly approaching
the most desirable to nurture of any in our
city. As we pictured the magnificent store
room he would soon have fitted up and be
in possession of at this profitable corner we
wondered why other of our merchants did
not foresee the harvest that was soon to be
reaped on this very street, and we also let
our fancy run into the other two large store
rooms, and wondered why some large, legit
imate furniture house did not adopt Seventh
street as a locality. Naturally a furniture
house would suggest itself first, as carpets
wall papers, etc., and furniture, go hand in
hand. Stopping to think, we could place no
absolute house in this business as located at
present on this street, and we are positive—
though only suggesting it—that this very
point is the spot. The building is perfectly
adapted to it, the field is clear, the associate
business in connection with it already pre
paring to move in; everything, in fact, is in
favor of this one branch of business, unless
the stores are already rented.
As before mentioned, the buildings are
four floors each, the stories con
nected with elevator and stairways,
and the two buildings are arranged so as to
be connected on on the upper floors if more
space is desired by one tenant. Our excur
sion through this magnificent example of the
builder's art was one of great pleasure, and
we left feeling an interest in it, for we had
so thoroughly made ourselves acquainted
with it.
Standing on the broad sidewalk that
spreads itself in front of this building we
thought of what Mr. Knauft had done for
this particular locality.
In the first place, everybody knows Ferdi
nand Knauft, one of the pioneers of our
city. Coming here in ISSO he naturally is
familiar with every point in St. Paul.
When Seventh street was nothing—he be
lieved that it had a future, and in 1858
erected the three-story stone building that
stands on the corner of Seventh and Olive.
Time went on. the building standing there
like a shot tower—alone. Many people were
skeptical, but Mr. Knauft had faith in the
street he had adopted, and well he might:
developments soon commenced and Seventh
street began to assume proportions. In 1870
adjoining the stone building mentioned, he
erected the large three-story brick building
so well known, and where for
years he has conducted his
hardware business.
Now, in 18S4, he completes the row which
covers the entire block from Pine to Olive
streets, and proud he should be to feel that
his thirty-four years of constancy to this
street is rewarded by the handsome building
that is now nearing completion, and which
will stand forever as a monument to his sa
gacity and clear understanding concerning
the future of Seventh street, which to-day is
rivaling any one of her sisters as a rushing
business thoroughfare.
Hooked By a Cow.
The eleven-year-old daughter of John Wolfin
ger, a German laboring man residing near the
brickyard in West St. Paul, was accidentally
hooked by a restive cow yesterday morning, the
horn entering her mouth and tearing the flesh of
her cheek in a fearful rip to her ear. Her wound
was sewed up by a physician and the little pa
tient is now doing well.

A Dispute as to Damages.
Shortly after the fire which swept away all the
row of frame buildings except a saloon at the
northwest corner of Seventh and Cedar streets,
Building Inspector Johnson made the usual ex
amination of the premiaes,and assessed the dam
ages to the saloon as more than fifty per cent, of
the original cost of the structure, and ordered
the owner not to proceed with rebuilding. The
owner, John Kleine, objected to the decision ot
Mr. Johnson, saying that the damages did not
L amount to fifty per cent. The case will be de -
oided by a committee of arbitration, to be com
posed of one man choses by Mr. Kleine, a second
by the inspector, and a third by the other two
members of the committee. Mr. Kleine is pro
ceeding under the sections of the general bnild
ing ordinance providing for arbitration in case of
dispute, has deposited the necessary $25 with the
inspector and selected M. N. Bergstrom as his
member of the committe. The case is interest
ing from the fact that it is the first one of the
kind to come up under the ordinance.
The Wabash Management.
The rumors which have circulated some days
past regarding the severance of the Wabash rail
road from the Missouri Pacific have taken definite
shape, and the announcement is made that July
I all heads of departments of the Missouri Paci
fic whose jurisdiction has boen extended over
the Wabash will retire from that road, and the
lines comprised in that system will be operated
independently of the Gould system proper and
under a new set of officers. This matter was
discussed in New Tfork last week by Messrs.
Gould, Hayes, Hoxie, and Humphreys, and the
above action decided upon. The road in future
will be operated by a much smaller force than
now. The new officers will probably be a general
agent, general manager, superintendent of
transportation, general freight agent, and gen
eral passenger agent is already occupied by Col.
James F. How. The other officers
have not yet been determined up
on. The general managership was offered
to Col. A. A. Talmagc, but declined. Hum or
places Col. Thomas McKissock and Mr. Chap
pell, of the Chicago & Alton, with it, but noth
ing definite is known. The offices of the Wabash
will be entirely separated from those of the Mis
souri Pacific, both here and elsewhere, and all
agents of the former will be instructed to com
pete with the latter the same as with any other
The Wabash Railroad company have entered
into an agreement with a syndicate of capitalists,
not yet named, by which the latter take off the
hands of the former the Quincy, Missouri & Pa
cific railroad, extending from Quincy, 111., to
Trenton, Mo., with all attaching obligations.
The object of the syndicate is said to be to oper
ate the road from Quincy to St. Joseph, Mo., in
opposition to the Hannibal & St. Joseph. To do
this they will construct a new road from St.
Joseph to near a point of the Rock Island & Pa
cific, use the track of the latter to Trenton, and
run thence over their own line to Quincy. This
route will be only seven miles longer than the
Hannibal & St. Joseph, and is to be in complete
operation within a year.
The above action is no doubt due to the severe
criticisms made by papers upon the courts for
allowing the Wabash to be managed by the offi
cials who have charge of the Missouri Pacific and
the other of Gould's southwestern roads. Gould,
Humphreys et al. could readily see that the
courts would not allow this state of affairs to
continue, and, becoming alarmed that the courts
might dictate not only the appointment of new
managers but also of new receivers, they made
haste to anticipate them and appoint men who
are just as friendly to their interests as the
present managers of the Missouri Pacific. The
action of Gould et al. does not do away with the
evils complained of and is simply an attempt to
blind the eyes of the courts, and the stockholders
and others interested in the Wabash. What is
demanded by the pnblic interested in the Wabash
is the appointment of receivers and managers
who are in no way identified with the Gould in
terests and cannot be used by Gould to carry out
his nefarious schemes. As far as the reference
to Mr. C. H. Chappell, of the Chicago & Alton,
is concerned, it can be stated authoritatively that
he would under no condition accept the position
of general manager of the Wabash. He holds a
far better and more pleasant position with the
The Wabash System,
S^j. Louis, June 28. —The special master to
whom was referred the petitions lately presented
to the United States court by the receivers of the
Wabash railroad system, has not yet made a
report, but it is expected, he will do so in a day
or two, and he will advise the payment of the'
interest falling due July Ist, on all self sustain
ing lines of system. This will include $200,000
on North Missouri first mortage bonds. 5112,500
on Chicago & Southwestern first mortgage,andslß
-780 on St, Louis, Council Bluffs & Omaha. Total,
$341,280, The $314,000 due at the same time
on the non-paying branches, will probably be
defaulted, when the burdensome,
branches are finally lopped off the Wabash sys
tem will still have through lines from St. Louis
to Kansas City, St, Joseph, Council Bluffs,on the
West; Chicago, Detroit and Toledo, on the east
with feeders to all important points heretofore
reached. While this will reduce the gross reve
nue to only a slight degree. It is expected the
expenses and interest charges will be cut down
thereby to 40 percent, and that the revenue in
future will yield a surplus over the expenses.
The general manager for the system has not yet
been determined upon, but it is thought G. W.
Silly will be general freight agent with I. Trip
ley as assistant.
The Union Pacific Will Pay It.
New Yokk, June 28.—The interest on the
Utah & Northern firsts, amounting to $194,000,
on Atcheson, Colorado & Pacific first $61,000, and
Denver, South Park & Pacific consols $46,000,
will be paid by the Union Pacific company July
first. The bonds of the Colorado Central and
Denver Western, and Pacific, on which the inter
est is due, July 1, are all owned by this com
pany. The Utah Central provides for its own
interest. The interest due July 1, $164,210, will
also be paid by the Union Pacific. The total in
terest charges of the Union Pacific, due July 1,
including interest on the first, on the collateral
trusts and on branch line bonds, amonnts to
$1,265,515, and will be paid.

Messrs. McQuillan and Thurston have re
cently opened in first class style at 116 East
Third street, as plumbers, tinners and gas
fitters. The two members of this firm are
well known workmen to many of
our citizens, both of them having
been connected for many years
with the oldest house in this line in St. Paul,
that of Prendergast Brothers. They have
each had a practical experience of some ten
years, and have worked at some of the finest
and largest jobs ever contracted in St. Paul.
They start with ample knowledge and
vigorous ambition to back them, and we cer
tainly know they will Veap the success
they earnestly are working for.
First-class workmansbjD in all the depart
ments of their business wthe special feature
they present to their customers, and it will be
to the advantage of every builder or gentle
man contemplating building to remember
them and give them a call for an estimate.
They make a specialty of heating and ven
tilating, both of which are matters of im
portant concern to every householder. In
this line their schooling is No. 1, and the re
peated evidences of their success are guaran
tees of what they can do. Along with
their general business they have se
cured the celebrated Buckeye stoves,
and ranges, one of the most justly popular
stoves ever manufactured. They merit a care
ful examination by housekeepers and per
sons in search of stoves should compare this
one with others as to quality and price.
The jobbing department of this firm is
carefully watched and all orders receive
prompt and the best of attention.
We are sure they will secure, and even
now are, getting as much bnsiness as they
can handle. They deserve it, for they rank
in reputation as among our best plumbers
and gas fitters in St. Paul.

Although rains have been almost universal in
this section, we learned yesterday, of a farmer,
who has a farm some seventeen miles southwest
of this, on which there has been no rain to speak
of this spring. His crops are sufiering. He
says that rain has fallen in torrents a half mile
distant on all sides of him. This is certainly a
peculiar freak of the rainfall.
On next Sunday the new hangings for the com

The roofers are advancing rapidly with their
work at the state prison, the iron rafters of the

pushing the work, but, as there is a large
amount of roofing to do, it will take some months
to complete the work. The marks left by the

templated improvements are finished the prison
will be safer and better than ever it was.
From gentlemen who have been over the state,
we learn that the crop prospects were never so
enconraging at this season as they are this year.
In the southern portion of the state the corn
crop is particularly strong and forward. The
warm weather and copious rains which we have
had could not but produce such a result. Tha
farmers are naturally jubilant, and it is hoped
that prices of grain will range fair.
The horsemen, who have been for a few dfys
in large numbers in our midst, have departed.
They expressed themselves as well satisfied with
the management here, everything being above

with the excellent track, which all declared to be
the best they had been on in years.

of fly balls going over the fence. Everything
has been got up in first-class order, and the grand

Water at Taylors Falls yesterday rose fifteen
inches, the water front the opening of the dams

the break iv the sidewalk, and covered a portion
of it. This will have to be torn up, as the side
walk should be built continuously, and there is
no doubt it will be done. They #re laying a
track at the west end of the warehouse, which
will facilitate business.
The new portion of the state prison, which
contains a large number of cells, the office of the
deputy warden, the barber shop and the lavatory,
is being pushed rapidly, under the superintend
ence of Mr. Charles Calgren, under whom the
greater part of the stonework of the older por
tions of the prison was erected. The workman
ship is far in advance of the older portions, and
the stone used comes principally from Kasota,
this state. The stove used for facing the cells
are very fine blocks, and no plastering will be
required. Corridors will run all around the cells. !
When completed no state will be able to boast of
a more secure retreat for the criminals than the
prison in this city. At an early day the whole
will be finished, should the progress be as rapid
as for the- past few weeks.
German Catholic Fair.
On Friday evening the German Catholic church
opened a fair at the Music hall, for the sale of
useful articles, in aid of their beautiful new
church, which will be dedicated in two weeks
from to-day. The hall was tastefully decorated,
and the manner iv which the different articles
were shown showed much.taste in those who
prepared the hall. The different colored goods
were pleasantly blended. Immediately on enter
ing the hall you find the lemonade stand directly j
in front, where lemonade, soda water and pleas* ■
ant smiles, the first two for cash and the latter !
free gratis for nothing, were freely dispensed by ]
Miss Lizzie Miller and Miss Emma Gidssi. From I
the liberal patronage they received something !
more than the warm evening must have contri- j
buted its share.
To the right of the lemonade stand we come j
upon the fan and bouquet stand, where fans of j
all sizes and at all prices may be obtained. The :
button hole bouquets were charming, but not
more so than the venders of them, Miss Lena
Wolf and Miss Rosa Jesse.
Next comes the candy and cigar stand, where
the lover of the aromatic weed will find- every ,
brand of cigar, and those .'who wisV'floniefliiiiV
extra nice and sweet in the candy line can be ac
commodated. But from the way that some of'
the young gentlemen present were looking they
must have thought that ; Miss Matilda Krenz and
Miss Christina Wolf, the young ladies in charge,
were the sweetest by far. . ; , . .
The fancy stand was a very extensive one, and
as soon as the fair is in full' operation, the"ladiei
in charge, Mrs. Schmidt and Mrs. Glockle; will
have their hands full, it contains,;in part, cover- :
lids, piano covers, crotchet work, monster dolls,
dressed in the latest fashion, cushions, wreath!
of flowers, fine needle work, and a variety of
other articles. But the feature that pleased us
most was a large rack or every day wear, which
for practical use, could not bo excelled. The
articles were well made, and will gladden
hearts of many a little miss, who can romp in
them as much as they please, and when washed
they will look as good as new. . The ladies who
have charge of this department, have several
such ones, and know how to make the very
most for the benefit of the church. • • .
-": Next comes the drawing table, and it is pleas
ant to . look upon the bright, business young
ladies who preside. They are Miss Carry Wolf
and Miss Maggie Schmidt, and from the number
about them last evening, they will do a big busi

pleasantly, that wins if you draw from an envel
ope the article. mentioned on the slip inside,
whether it be a string of beads, a jumping jack,

ladies mentioned above, several of their lady
companions wore assisting. .

Mrs. Joseph Tenner, | Mrs. Philip Potts, Mrs.
Louis Wolf and Mrs. O. Wolber. They had the
very best ice cream of various flavors, and as for
the cake that was supplied with the strawberries
and ice cream, we can only say one is not satis
fied with one piece, but must have more.
We wish them every success, and that Father
Alphonso, the popular priest of the church, will

lars to help in payment of one of the neatest and
best designed churches in the state.

A Liberal Policy for Sweden.
To the Editor of the Globe:
The protracted constitutional struggle in Nor
way, .that has agitated the people in twelve
years, since the present king, Oscar I, in 1872,
succeeded his brother Charles as ruler of the
united kingdoms, Sweden and Norway, has now
come to an end, and the national assembly (the
hershing) that has represented the will of an
overwhelming majority of the people, has won a
splendid victory. According to the despatches
of the Norwegian newspaper Xordvesten, of St.
Paul and Minneapolis, the king has decided to
leave his former autocratical friends, and has
appointed an entirely liberal cabinet, with the
talented leader of the liberal party, John Soer
drip, at the head. This will bring the struggle
to a practical end, the whole battlefield being left
to the people.
