Work on Installation of Furnaces

Resumed This Week -- H. A. French

of Seattle In Charge.

After several prolonged and unavoidable delays, difficulty of getting construction and the installation of the furnaces and other material for the Anacortes Glass Co. was resumed on Tuesday morning with a full crew of men in charge of H. A French of Seattle, the new superintendent of construction, who is also a heavy stockholder in the company.

It will take sixty days to complete the plant ready for operation, but no further delays are likely to occur, as nearly all the required material and machinery is now available. A crew of seven men is now at work laying tho concrete walls and piers for the furnaces. This installation will also require 75,000 common brick, and 15,000 fire brick. The outside measurement of tho furnace department ts 30.6 x3 8 feet, 8 feet high.

From these two 60-foot cooling liers [sic] lehrs carry the output to the packing and finishing departments.

When in operation the entire plant will be capable of turning out about ten tons of glass products per day.

Up to date the glass factory has added eleven to the population of the city, Mr. and Mrs. French of Seattle being the latest acquisition.
