The danger of a disastrous coal famine in Muncie, Ind., is serious, and though glass manufacturers are hoping for the best, things do not look especially encouraging. Among some manufacturers conditions are improved over a few days ago, while with others necessity for fuel grows more pressing daily. The Hemingray factory has plenty of coal on hand for immediate use and more on the way, but the price paid to secure it was very high. The Ball Bros. have no great surplus, but sufficient for present use.
