THE D. M. STEWARD MFG. CO., of Chattanooga, Tenn., were not directly represented at the convention although some of the goods on exhibition embodied their celebrated lava insulation. But as the return trains stopped at Chattanooga, several of the delegates had the opportunity to meet the head of the house. Although he fought as a Union soldier right over the ground where his factory now stands, Mr. D. M. Steward is hale and hearty, and positively juvenile in his vigor. Although the hard times has restricted the output in some lines, Mr. Steward reports a full flow of business in others, and considerably more inquiry for electrical parts. The factory is running at the utmost capacity, and it has become necessary to open a downtown branch. Mr. Steward has also stationed one of his sons in New York to to watch the electrical, gas tip, slate pencil, crayon and other lines of trade. The Iron Age now quotes the Steward specialties regularly as standard in its price list.
