GLASS AFFAIRS AT MONTREAL
The Diamond Flint Glass Co.'s large works at Montreal, Can., closed down last Friday evening, making a steady run since last September. During the shutdown a number of extensive improvements and repairs will be made by the management, including the erection of new buildings and other equipment which, according to General Superintendent David Pugh, who was in Pittsburg last week on a business trip, will make the plant one of the modernly equipped in the country.
Affairs at the factory progressed smoothly since the beginning of the blast and a good production of ware was in evidence from start to finish. The capacity of the plant will not be increased by the erection of any additional furnaces during the summer, but with the proposed added facilities a larger production is practically assured for next season. The skilled force was composed of 106 shops and an immense amount of ware has been turned out since last September. Practically all lines of glassware (general flint, bottles and machine goods) are made at this plant. According to present plans of the management resumption will in all probability take place early in September.
