Large Increase in Xiuiiiter of Peo.
pie Wlio Are Buying: Prop
erty With a View to
Keeping It.
Demand for real estate in St. Paul Is,
at present, the largest of its character
known for many years. Every real es
tate dealer in the city reports business
lively and of a class that is particularly
desirable. A canvass by The Globe
yesterday invariably elicited the answer
as to the condition of business, that it
was exceptionally good.
Not only is the demand for real estate
brisk, but it is not speculative in any
sense. Every person that buys a lot,
buys it with the intention of owning and
usirg it. Another feature of the situa
tion is that nearly all the real estate
transactions are now made for cash,
where a few years ago only one-fourth
was paid down. In the interurtan dis
tricts there are new houses going up
every day, and the homes show a de
cided improvement ovtr those erected
some years ago. Even the cheaper class
of houses are now built with ideas a3 to
external beauty and internal convenience.
The cause for this condition cf the mar
ket is given differently by real estate ex
perts, but the reator.s all fundamentally
revert to the prosperity of the city in
every line of business. The increase of
business establishments drives residents
farther back, and as the increase of busi
ness establishments depends entirely upon
trade, it follows that trade Ts the prime
motor in the disposal of real property for
Ontlook In Excellent.
When seen by Th cGi ob c yesterday,
H. S. Falrchild said: "The outlook now
is all that man can reasonably ask for.
Everything is at its brightest point. There
is a good, steady market for real estate,
and the city is growing rapidly. The most
encouraging part of this i 3 that it is a
strong, swift, healthy growth, without any
speculation. More people are buying real
estate for their own use, and I think that
I may safely say that in nine cases out
of ten every reaf estate transaction is now
mada for a cash consideration.
"Previous to the hard times there was
considerable speculation In real estate,
and in very few cases did the purchaser
have the cash ready to pay in full. Some
paid one-half, some one-fourth and others
still less. Then came the hard times, and
found the banks of the city flooded wltti
real estate paper of all kinds. The prop
erty was bought on time, and the price
paid was in proportion. The result wa3
that there had to be a-general liquidation.
Mortgages were foreclosed, voluntary set
tlements made and many went through
"Now, that the condition of business
has changed, and the era of prosperity
has arrived, everybody is starting out with
a clean slate, and has the money with
which to buy any property desired. For
this reason they secure the!r homes
cheaper, and once they have them, they
own them.
"The reasons for this are many, and
are due in a large measure to the busi
ness prosperity of the city. It Is a mat
ter of fact that nearly every business
house in the city is enlarging- one way or
the other. Additions are built or additional
stories are put on, or else other buildings
are occupied.
Railroads Buying Land.
"Then again the railroads are putting up
extensive improvements in different por
tlpns of the city that were formerly oc
cupied by residences. The people who re-
Bided in these communities are moving
9Ut, having Bold their homes at a jfooft
f>rlce, end are able to buy new and better
©nes. I know of one Instance where a
railroad displaced thirteen families, and
this is not; at all uncommon. Tb.©, aver-
age citizen of the city has no idea of the
amount of improvements that are being
made. Even down town, where everybody
can see them, they are not properly ap
preciated. 1 can name a dozen business
houses that have increased in size during
the past three years, and these same
houses are adding to their capacity this
"The growth of a city depends to a
great extent upon the settlement of th 3
tributary country. This being admitted,
it must also be admitted that the out
look for St. Paul is bright, v.hen the
train loads of settlers that are gring into
the Northern country are considered. All
this will have its bearing en the de
Early Prediction Realised.
"I made a speech twenty-seven years
ago in regard to the growth of the Twin
Cities up to that time, and I n predicting
for the future I said that the population
of St. Paul, Minneapolis and the surround
ing towns would reach 250,000 in the next
twenty-five years, and perhaps 300.0C0. Had
I said 400,000 I would have been more
nearly correct, as after years have shown.
At that time 1 was thought to be vision
ary and entirely too optimistic, but events
show that I was not.
"I can now see a still better future for
St. Paul. If one will drive out to the in
terurban districts be will be greatly sur
prised at the number of new homes that
are going up each year. And they are
all first-class homes. Some are cheap, as
the owners are not rich, but they are far
ahead of what was commonly considered
to be good enough several years ago.
Fro-m every point I look at the situation 1
feel that it is all that can be desired."
The ordinance passed by the assembly
granting to Friend B. Brace and others a
lighting franchise for St. Anthony Park
is now in the possession of Mayor Smith,
who says he does not know yet whether
he will sign it or not.
The franchise was granted reluctantly
by the assembly, and it Is probable that
sufficient pressure will be brought to
bear to induce a veto. Some of the as
semblymen think the city is not receiv
ing what the franchise is worth. There
are others who think the company»Ls not
all that it was claimed to be.

Demanded Increase of Twenty-Fiv
Cents Per Day-Fonr Hundred
Men Similarly Employed
Are Interested.
Because thcry were refused an Increase
of 25 cents per day the helpers and £hip
pers employed >by the American Hoist
and Derrick company walked out yestSi-
day at noon. The number of those who
struck is between twenty and twenfy
five, and the 400 men who work at this
trade in St. Paul will meet today in Fed
eration hall for the purpose of perfect
ing a union organization. As it is, these"
men have no organization whatever, al
though during the past week preliminary
plans were made.
The men asked their foreman Friday
for an increase of 25 cents all around, and
the foreman reported to them that the
company would increase their wages 10
per cent. The men are not paid any reg
ular fccale of wages, drawing all the way
from $1.65 a day to $2. The increase of
fered was not enough, and yesterday
when the men quit for dinner, they re
fused to return to work. Every helper
and chipper employed by the company
was out.
While a large percentage of the men
who struck yesterday are, more strictly
speaking, laborers, they claim that the
nature of the work they pertcrm is such
that it will take* time to replace them,
especially as they claim the wages are
not particularly alluring.
No ether rr.en struck in the works, as
the machinists and molders who are em
rloyed there have an agreement with
the company which does not expire until
May 1. Even if this agreement was not
in effect, the unions could not take an
official cognizar.ee cf the strike as it is
not now a ur.ion afiair.
The laborers en.ployed at the American
Hoist and Derrick company claim that
their work is laborious and that it is no
more than just that they should receive 1 a
higher salary.
It is estimated that there are in the
neighborhood of 400 men in St. Paul who
make their living in this, manner, and an
effort will be made this afternoon to get
them all into line to join the new union.
There was no other trouble in any of the
foundries or concerns of a like nature in
the city yesterday.
Among the machinists and molders the
American Hoist and Derrick company
has the reputation of being fair towards
its men, and these men feel that the only
course for the strikers to pursue is to
form an organization that will compel
every concern in the city to pay the same
scale of wages.

What housewife does not admire and
appreciate a pair of fine, snowy, wfll
i hung curtains? Yet how little is known
of the history of these curtains! How
few can tell ir*w they are made and L-1
Ty^at country, and how they reach the
big stores of the West. A housewife will
tell you vaguely when her beautiful cur
j tains have been admired that they are
I "imported," but it is doubtful if her in
formation will go beyond that. She does
not know, for instance, that these im
ported curtains are really purchased by
the merchants before they are made up;
that ten and sometimes eleven or twelve
months before the curtains are desired
the agent from abroad—from Switzerland
generally, for here the finest curtains are
made—comes to New York and exhibits
his samples.
The merchants or their buyers select
from these What they want or about what
their customers will want, and the or
der is givr-n. The agent returns to his
own country and turns in his oPSers and
immediately the curtain makers get to
work to turn out what is desired. But
nine months Is a long time, and fre
quently big changes take place in that
period. Sometimes some of the houses
that have placed big- orders for the cur
tains are destroyed by fire, or fail, or
meet with some other ill that stores are
heir to. and there is the big stock to be
disposed of. Progressive merchants real
ize the chances that are taken and thfir
buyers are constantly on the alert to pick
up bargains.
Because of one St. Paul buyer's alert
ness the St. Paul housewives will have
a chance to pick up some surprising bar
gains in lace curtains this week. The
buyer is Mr. Jones, of Field, Schlick &
Co. He has Just returned from New
York, where he had the good fortune to
purchase at a very low price a large
mirrber of curtains made in St. Gall,
Switzerland, the maker having retired
from business. These curtains number
in all about 1,000 pairs and have a mnr
ket value all the way from JH to $80.
They are divided into two lota. The first
lot will be sold at a discount of S3 1-3
per cent, and the other at 45 per cent dis
count. The curtains are all fresh and
clean, and the lot Includes Arabian lace,
Renaissance, Louis XIV.. Irish point,
Tambour and Brussels lace.
In the case of Mathilda J. Skoglund
against the St. Paul Gas Light company
Judge Bunn has ordered that"Mrs. Skog
lund submit to an (lamination by a phy
sician to be named by the defendant, or
her case shall be dismissed.
Mrs. Skoglund bases her claim for dam
ages of $30,000 upon the allegation that
she was permanently injured by being
asphyxiated in her room by illuminating
gas through the negligence of the de
fendant company in turning off the sup
ply in the pipes and then turning it on
again without warning the consumers of
their intention. She has thus far refused
to submit to an examination by a phy
sician employed by the gas company.
Cannot Pay Any More Alimony.
In the matter of the divorce of Bertha
M. Rohlcder from August Ro&eder,

fendant for modification of the judgment
as to alimony. The divorce was granted
übout two years ago, and by Judgment
of the court, Rohleder has been paying
?10 a month alimony. He brought a phy
sician's certificate to show that he is

tor criticism of the board and of Dr. Tom
Mr. Hayes, accountant of the board,
who was P"--nt to St. Peter to ex.
into the alleged Irregularities, returned
to St. Paul yesterday, but would gi■>
no statement concerning his discoveries
except to say that tue work was not yet
completed. It ig known, however, that ha
has not been able to rind any discrepan
cies which will bear out the intlm;
that startling discoveries might result.
The board of control refuses to discuss
the situation at all and will not say
whether or net they will give Mr. Rogers
an opportunity to prove his absolute in
nocence, or whether they will "just let
the matter drop."
While neither Gov. Van Sar.t nor Mr.
Leavitt will divulge what took place at
their conference on Wednesday, it is said
that Mr. Leavitt practically indorsed the
position taken by Mr. Rogers, and assert
ed that he had no intention of charging
Mr. Rogers or Mr. Tegner with any In
tentional wrongdoing. The board of con
trol, it is understood, has concurred in
the position taken by Mr. Rogers In re
gard to authority and responsibility at
the Institution, and if the board takes the
action which they have indorsed Dr. Tom.
linson will hereafter have to assume re
sponsibility whenever he assumes au
Undoubtedly the board of control now
desires' to let the entire matter drop, but
the friends of Rogers will not allow It
to be thus hushed up. One of the gentle
men interested in the affair said yester
day: "The board was overly precipitous
in publishing its aL'egations and in as
serting that an investigation must be
made. Now that they find themselves on
the wrong tack they will not be allowed
to drop the investigation which they
themselves precipitated. Nothing will be
accepted but the absolute vindication of
the men whose reputations have been re
flected on."
The sentiment of St. Peter is unani
mously opposed to the board. Senator
=^/VYA. Y. St. Paul. —^
Johnson's paper thus refers to th< case:
"The board of control has enjoyed any*
thing but a savory reputation ::; Bl
