The agreement between the citizens of Cadiz, O., who subscribed $5,000 for a glass works, and the company erecting them, is thus outlined: The company is to erect a brick building, 70x50 feet and 18 feet in height, tin roof, smoke stack sixty feet in height. The factory to have the capacity of employing at least seventy-five men. All is to be completed free from debt, and said company is to issue a first mortgage for $5,000 to the citizens subscribing the donation fund, said mortgage to be binding on the company only for the term of five years. The works are to cost about $15,000 and on proper satisfaction to the committee that $15,000 or more, have been invested in building, grounds and machinery, and that the property is free from debt, the committee is to pay said company the sum of $5,000 as a donation. If the property shall have cost less than $15,000, then the committee is to pay a proportionate sum less than $5,000. In conversation with a prominent manufacturer of Bellaire in regard to the proposed factory to be built at Cadiz, O., he said: "There must be some reason why so many practical glass men are looking elsewhere for locations for the erection of manufacturing establishments. It is certainly not because the other points have any advantage over Bellaire, either in accessibility, economy in construction, convenience of fuel and material, or better established reputation in the glass trade. There is no point in Ohio more favorable for a profitable glass business than Bellaire, where nearly one-third of the glass manufactured in the State is being produced."
