The Diamond Glass Company, Montreal, manufacturers insulators, fruit jars and table ware, threaten to close down their factory at Montreal and their branches in Hamilton and Burlington as a result of the tariff changes on glassware. Mr. William Yule, the president, says that the ministers when on their tour gave him to understand that there would be no change. He says that he cannot compete with Germany unless the old duty is restored; if the old duty is not restored the men must accept a reduction of wages or else all the factories will closed down. The Montreal factory employs between 400 and 500 men, and the branches at Hamilton and Burlington about 300.
