In the lively towns and cities of the
Northwest. Nowhere outside of the
Dakotas have new towns grown more
rapidly nor more substantially. The
grain and other products are being mar
keted, supplies for the winter are being
purchased, new clothing is in demand,
and all classes of trade, even the jewel
ers and furriers, feel the benefits of the
The banks of the Twin Cities receive
fully 110,000,000 of currency by express
each year during this season for the
handling of wheat, and following the
exceedingly prosperous season of
1891, the banks here find
themselves in belter financial
shape than ever. The same
may be said of the agriculturists who
paid off an immense amount, of mort
gage indebtedness during the year, and
now have reasonably good crops, with
prices satisfactory, except on wheat,
which is somewhat lower than the
figures of a year ago. Many of the farm
ers are behind with fall work, but the
trade has improved, and will increase
rapidly. * Concerning
The Banking Situation
William Dawson, president of the Bank
of Minnesota and one of the most experi
enced and best known bankers of St.
Paul, found time yesterday to talk on
the subject at some length. He said:
"There are more deposits in the banks
here now than they have ever had be
fore, but money is close and active, for
• the reason that a vast amount of cur
rency is beimr used to handle the crops.
The bank is the. tliemonieterof the busi
ness community, and when the crop
movement begins money naturally be
comes more active. Both now and dur
ing the summer the banks have had
more funds than ever before. The in
crease in deposits here has been, lam
informed, fully 25 per cent as compared
with 1891. From the reports of the
wholesale men I judge that they had
fully as satisfactorily an increase in
business. During more than thirty years
here 1 have had unbounded
faith in the commercial standing
of the Northwest. Some ups and
downs are to be expected, just as in
any country, but the tine soil and cli
mate of Minnesota make the state very
substantial, i cannot see but that we
• are now on an upward movement of
j prosperity. Ido not mean a boom, but
,on a good, substantial improvement,
; The country back of us. or around us, is
in a very prosperous condition.
v "Minnesota was never in a better con
dition than at the • present time. My
confidence in St.Paul real estate con

Knoouraglim Reports.
Among various expressions of opin
ion the following are presented:
John J. O'Leary & Sons, Pork Pack
ers—"Our business this ; year has been
50 per cent greater than that of 1691,
and we will kill 150,000 head of hogs in
1592. We employ 200 men and do busi
ness in St. Paul, South St. Paul, Minne
apolis and St. Louis.- Our goods are in
active demand from the state of Wash
ington to New York v and:"in."all of the
Southern states. The fact - is, Minne
sota pork, on account of certain desir
able qualities, commands a premium in
all markets. We do most of our, pack
ing at the Union stockyards, South St.
Paul, which we must say.'are "the \ best
managed and finest equipped yards in
the West.
Rudolph Rossum, of Scheffer & Pos
sum,- Wholesale Saddlery and Saddlers'
Hardware— I think the jobbers are hav
ing the largest business they ever had.
Trade must be good , all around. The
summer sales increased considerably,
and the orders for winter goods are so
heavy that we are haruly able to fill
them. The business ot our firm in
creased £100,000 during the past year. I
presume that shelf hardware : and sad
dlery goods are showing the largest per
centages of increase in jobbing.
Finch, Van Slyke, Young & Co.,
Wholesale Dry Goods— We have just
completed our September accounts, and
they show quite as good a business as
September of last year. This is rather
surprising in view of the pleasant
weather, which enables the fanners to
continue their fall work. They are
making the most of the good weather—
a condition that was reversed a year
ago. This fall work accounts for some
delay in collections, but we are satisfied
with the situation.
D. F. Brown, Northwestern Hardware
Company— Our busiuess has increased
40 per cent this year and is eood in every
department. We have found a grow
ing demand for the finest kinds of
builders' hardware and have met it with
these goods that are suitable for New
York, Boston or any other "city; it
shows that fine buildings are going up
here. ' ._..:. y
Prospects Favorable.
Charming Seabury, Seabury & Co.,
Wholesale Grocers— Trade is all rieht,
quite as good as in Mil, and the pros
pects are very favorable. Our business
is very satisfactory. The collections
are a little slow, but an improvement
can be looked for in this department
soon, when the farmers get their fall
work in shape and increase their mar
keting. \ ;
Charles Straus, Robinson, Straus &
Co., Wholesale Millinery— Our business
is in excess of last year, and the outlook
for the rest of the season is rather bet
ter than heretofore. The 'collections
are fair. -. -
Arthur & Abbott.Wholesale Notions-
Trade is fair with us. The collections
are a little slow, but oar traveling men
ascribe that to the farmers be
ing busy with the fall plowing,
and all that. They could not
do fall work to the same advantage a
year ago, and they are getting in all" the
"hard licks" they can this season.
Richards Gordon, Gordon & Ferguson,
Wholesale Manufacturers of Furs, Hats
and Caps— lhe season is splendid. We
have no complaint to make. St. Paul
has an established reputation on fur
Generally, throughout the United
States, the trade conditions can be called
good. iron and cotton are in demand,
two staples that caused apprehension in
the Southeast last year. The cholera
scare has abated, Western croos are
safe and fairly good. Taken altogether
it is not surprising that 4,000 miles of
new railroads are. being built this sea

Last spring the State Agricultural so

they should furn-sh a St. Paul business

Seniors' Exciting Contest— War-.'*
sity Notes.
"•The seniors met at 12:10 Saturday to elect ,"
officers. A motion was made to elect presi
dent, vice president, secretary and treasurer
and chairman of .the executive committee.''
and of the literary division of the committee,
and that president and chairman constitute
a committee of three to appoint the other
members of the committees. The motion
was carried, and the class proceeded to . the
election of officers. Since the adjournment
Wednesday the politicians had been hard at
work, but . the interest seemed to be greater
among the girls than among the boys. The
first informal ballot resulted as follows: Mer
rill, 19; White, 19: Huntington, 17: Tavlbr, 8; ,
Wallace. 1. The class proceeded to formal hal
loaing, but sixteen ballots were cast before
an election was accomplished. . Merrill kept
at the head, now gaining, now losinir. White
ami Huntington fluctuated and ■ Taylor
dropped out before the cud was reached.
Considerable excitement prevailed between
the ballots, and those who believe that
vtoman is not fitted for a politician would
have learned a lesson had they been present.
The voting might have gone on Indefinitely,
but the voters got hungry and at last tlie
announcement was made.' Necessary to

The Judge Reserves His Decision, j

Court Business.
Htjdscx, N. V., Oct. I.— The matter i
of application of E. Elltry Anderson I
for a mandamus compelling Labor
Commissioner Peck to produce in court
the private papers in which he com
piled his report on the tariff, came up
before Justice Edwards this morning,
ex-Senator Norton Chase appearing for
Mr. Anderson and Edward Meeran tor
the commissioner of labor. It was a
special term of the supreme court and
this was the first actual hearing yet
The original order directing Mr. Peck I
to show cause why a preparatory writ
of mandamus should not ' issue was
granted by Justice Edwards and was re
turnable at a special term held in King
ston, by Judge ■ Fursmau. A postpone
ment was effected and the case was be
fore Justice Mayham on Tuesday last.
He declined to hear it on the ground
that Justice Edwards had issued the
preliminary order and should hear the
case..; ...... •..--.
There were a number ot ex-parte
cases heard this morning, and then Mr.
Chase presented the same papers as'
were presented to Judge tursnian at
Kingston, reciting that Mr. Peel- had
refused to allow public papers on file in
his office and obtained under the seal of
the labor commissioner to De examined,
although the law strictly provides that
the papers on rile in his office were pub
lic property. They therefore asked for
a peremptory writ of mandamus to com-!
pel the production of such documents.
Mr. Meegan, for Mr. Peck, presented.,
the affidavit as printed on Tuesday, in
which he states that the communication,,
and letters upon which his report is
based "were never riled nor made a rec

Mrs. Harrison's Days Spent With
out Pain, and Her Nights Are
The Family Much Kncoiiragstl by
the Favorable Turn in Her
Washington, Oct. I.— The most com
forting of all conditions of both invalid
and nurses, the ability to rest well, has
been the good fortune all-week. Dr.
Gardiner says that Mrs. Harrison rested
I better last night than she has done so
I far during her illness. The impression
I is general to-day in the household that
j she is decidedly better, because her days
i are spent without pain and the nights
I lately are so restful. Miss Davis, the
; trained nurse, has charge of her every
| night. Her duties commence at the
i hour when the family retire. In the
morning after breakfast the nurse is re
lieved by the ladies of the [ household,
who, with Mrs. Harrison's maid, Jose
i phine, are in attendance one after an
other all day lpng.
i Thd president usually spends the
i hours from luncheon to dinner in the
j sick room unless he defers to Mrs. Har
j rison's expressed wish and goes out for
I a walk or a drive. In the same way she
I always insists on Mrs. McKee and Mrs.
i Russell Harrison going out or spending
! just as much time as they can with their
j children. The amount of nourishment
I .which Mrs. Harrison is able to take is
I the most encouraging feature these
j days, and strengthens the opinion that
! if she can continue to hold her own a
j while longer, her chances forgetting
; better are certainly much improved.
I "Mrs. Harrison has had a very com
< fortabie day and her physician tonight
. reports a slight improvement in her
J condition.
Director T. P. Brooke has organized what
