Optmistic Report From The Glassworker's Energetic Local Correspondent - Two More Tanks Scheduled to Start.

Salem, N. J., Nov. 21. - Affairs appear to be all right now, as Wilson is elected, so let us all turn in and try to make this the banner year.

The Salem Glass Works are operating all of their furnaces but one and they are rushing work on this one, which will be ready by Dec. 20, when the plant will be working full capacity, which has not been the case here for about ten years past.

An "owl shift" is now working from 2:30 in the morning until 7 a. m., four and a half hours. Some of those who work on this shift say they wish it would last all year, for they are doing very well considering the time they work.

The new tank is now working all right and is turning out excellent glass.

John Earley has gone on his farm at Clayton. - Jack Chard has gone to Clarksburg, W. Va. - Jack McFarland is working on the owl shift.

Everybody here seems to be very well satisfied; there is no knocking off of any account.

At the Gayner Glass Works everything is running smoothly and the shops are turning out their usual good day's work. There is some talk of starting another tank about Jan. 1, which we hope will materialize. - Fort Mott.
