New Items Concerning Affairs at Salem.

Notes and Personals.

Salem, N. J., Feb. 26. - Everything is going along smoothly at the Salem Glass Works with all the shops working and it looks like a continuous run until the end of the blast. The company are operating three pot furnaces, one day tank and three continuous tanks on a miscellaneous line of ware, amber blue, dark green and light green.

Branch No. 6 has lost two members by death so far this year, Wm. McWilliams, Sr., and Wm. Gifford. One was taken to Clayton for burial and the other to Bridgeton.

Wm. Taylor, our manager, met with a serious accident recently. A box of ware fell on him, causing a fracture of the leg. He is now improving nicely.

J. W. Egan is selling union-made clothes and all can get the label now without any trouble.

Several of our men are going to farm this spring and others will fish for the celebrated shad in the Delaware river.

The firm inform me that they have all the small help that they want at present.

It is rumored that J. C. Bacon has sold out to a party named Shobe and will retire as soon as the furnaces are built.

The Gayner plant is running along just the same as at my last writing with all the shops working steadily.

Branch No. 6 has a legislative committee which is doing good work and there will be more than one bill that will pass this year through their efforts. Our meetings are getting more interesting. We have from 100 to 130 in attendance. We recently raised the fine for non-attendance and it no doubt did some good.

Executive Officer F. M. Edwards was here last Saturday. His remarks were well received by our members. - Fort Mott.
