MINNESOTA



ALTHOUGH Minnesota produces no coal within
its borders its geographic position as the gate-
way to tlie great Northwest and its rich iron ore
deposits — the utilization of which are, as a practical
economic proposition, so closely interwoven with and
dependent upon the movement of coal to the Head of
the Lakes — give it an importance that robs its modest
l)er capita and square mile consumption statistics of
much of their significance. Stretching to the north, the
west and, to a considerable extent, to the south is a
broad area, largely agricultural, but dotted with well-
known towns and cities, where the climatic conditions
throughout the winter and during the spring and fall
demand a heavy consumption of fuel for household com-
fort. To a large degree this necessity in normal times
is supplied by coal from the Pennsylvania anthracite
and eastern bituminous fields and by far the major por-
tion of this tonnage is ex-lake, flowing through the
magnificent docks at Duhitli, Minnesota, and Superior,
Wisconsin. The vessels that bring this tonnage up the
lakes from the lower Lake Eiie ports receive return
loadings of ore and grain.

If state lines may be overlooked and Superior con-
sidered, as it is in actual commercial practice, a part
of Minnesota, the docks at the Twin Ports offer the
coal shipper in the East a combined storage capacity of
approximately 11,000,000 tons. Figures published in
"The Eetail Coalman" in March, 1918, showed that
the principal docks at Duluth had an aggregate storage
capacity sufficient to take care of 330,000 tons of an-
thracite and 4,239,000 tons of bituminous coal, and
that the aggregate storage capacity of the Superior
docks wfis 767,000 tons of anthracite and 5,502,000 tons
of bituminous coal. Government statistics for 1915, 1916
and 1917 show the following receipts during the season
of navigation; 1915 — anthracite, 1,687,726 tons; bitum-
inous coal, 6,656,237 tons; 1916— anthracite, 1,413,713
tons; bituminous coal. 8,171.524 tons; 1917 — anthra-



cite, 1,823,799 tons ; bituminous coal, 9,238,784 tons.
During tlie same period the combined anthracite and
bituminous shipments from Duluth and Superior to
interior points were as follows: 1915, 251,842 car-
loads; 1916, 312,845 carloads; 1917, 267,067 carloads.
While chief reliance is placed upon the movement of
ex-lake, fuel from the East it is not to he inferred that
the Northwest is blind to the coal-producing states lying
nearer home. The contrary is true. Minnesota has
drawn heavily upon Illinois and Indiana — and particu-
larly the former state — for fuel, and Minnesota business
has been sought with eagerness by operators in the
states named. The Twin Cities industrial district in
particular and the territory lying south and west of
that district in general have been bitter battle grounds
in the struggle for supremacy between all-rail coal
moving from the Illinois mines and Eastern coal mov-
ing through the docks at the Head of the Lakes. Last
year the combined Illinois and Indiana commercial ton-
nage placed in the Twin Cities district reached 889,654
tons, while shipments into the state as a whole aggre-
gated 1,838,734 tons.

In 1915 the per capita conslunption in Minnesota
was 3.22 tons (2.48 tons bituminous coal and .74 ton
anthracite). Consumption per square mile was 89
tons. Tlie total consumption for the state was 7,506,-
568 tons, of which 1,670.000 tons were Pennsylvania
anthracite and 5,836,568 tons bituminous coal. Of the
total bituminous consumption, 3,793,000 tons, or nearly
65 per cent, was ex-lake coal. Illinois mines ranked
next in importance, furnishing 1,334,330 tons. Contri-
butions from other coal producing states were as fol-
lows: Arkansas, 5,372 tons; Indiana, 72,934; Iowa,
12,557; Kentucky, 345,333; Ohio, 65,094; Pennsyl-
vania, 120,244; Virginia, 47,000; West Virginia, 40,-
704 tons. These figures, of course, are for all-rail move-
ment and exclude the ex-lake fuel coming from Penn-
sylvania, West Virginia and Ohio.

Twenty years ago J. D. Ekstrum, wlio for three years
had served hoii<)ral)lv as sergeant of |)oli<'e at Minne-

thus began the history of the Flour City Fuel & Transfer
Co., which now has a capital of $300,000 and is one
of the notable successes in the retail coal trade of Amer-
ica. Mr. Ek.strum attributes this success in great
measure to the sincere endeavors of the company to
please every patron. This of course involved much hard



work. The demands of the people had to be studied
and when determined prompt delivery and other factors
entered into the problems of the growing concern. The
company was incorporated with a capital of $100,000
in 1911 and this was increased to $300,000 in 1915.

The activities of the company broadened rapidly
through the twenty years which measure its distinctive
career. Wholesale and retail coal and wood comprise
but one of its activities. P^ireproof storage facilities con-
stitute one of its great achievements. The company
is at present operating about sixteen offices and eight
yards in Minneapolis. In its coal department it uses
al)out thirty trucks and sixty teams. Xearly 200,-
000 tons of coal are distributed annually in the com-
pany's retail business at Minneapolis. Its wholesale and
jobbing trade exceeds 100,000 tons annually.

The officers of the Flour City Fuel & Transfer Co.
include the following: J. D. Ekstrum, President and
General Manager ; N. L. Johnson, Treasurer and Assist-
ant General Manager ; F. Warde Smith. Vice President
and ^fanager Sales; John Olson, Vice President; H. E.
Johnson, Secretary; A. J. lluotte. .\ssistant Secretary
and Credit Manager; August Kallberg, Superintendent
of Garage and Automobile Department; .\. F. Xelson,
Superintendent of Yards; C. E. Ekstrum. Superintend-
ent of Shops and Equipment.

Mr. F. Warde Smith, Sales Manager, has been con-
nected with the company only four years but in that
time has materially increased the tonnage and is con-
sidered one of the best sales managers in the city.

Air. N. L. Johnson, Treasurer, is also Treasurer and
Alanager of the Powers Fuel. Transfer & Storage Co.

Air. Jolm Olson, Vice President of the company, is
