Wood Products Plant Mill Project
Endorsed by Wire.
Two very important industrial problems have been settled this week. The first is the certainty that the Ancortes Glass factory will be rushed to completion at once, ample cash capital having been secured on Monday and all financial difficulties have been finally closed. Two cars of machinery which have been stalled in the east were wired for and are now on the road, while on Tuesday four carloads of fire brick were ordered by wire by Melville Curtis and will be here within a week. This will be sufficient to complete the factory ready for operation. President Funnell and Manager McKay have been in the city during the week getting things installed right all along the line and everybody interested is now certain that the plant is amply financed and then some.
$15,000 for Wood Products Mill
W. B. Frisbie, who arrived here Tuesday night to co-operate with R. S. Green in the management of the Wood Products plant and initiate and direct needed improvements, wired to President Holbrook at Sheridan, Wyoming, yesterday afternoon fully endorsing the project to establish a shingle mill in connection with the plant as soon as possible and urging that $15,000 be appropriated at once for that purpose. It is expected that the auxiliary industry, either six uprights, or one double-block and four upright shingle machines, cutting about 250,000 shingles daily, will be completed and ready for operation by April 1. The establishment of a cedar siding mill in connection is also under consideration and Mr. Frisbie left for Seattle and Ballard last night to consult with the superintendent of one of the big Ballard mills, who is interested in the Anacortes factory and who favors the present plan.
