The principal public buildings are the cathedral, city-hall, state armory, and government building. The prosperity of this place, now also a popular summer-resort, is chiefly derived from trade (largely in grain) and extensive manufactures of flour, lumber, silks, brass goods, boilers, leather, etc. Steamboats ply regularly between the city and various ports on the river and lakes. Pop. in 1890, 11,662; in 1900, 12,633.
