The OlasN Works.
Koek Island is in danger of losing
one of its most prominent industries.
When the Koek Island glass works
shut down for the season the other
dav. the blowers were told they need
not expect work next year, as the
fires would not be started in the fall.
Whether this determination will ap
ply permanently, is not known, "but
at'all events the United Glass com
panv has been threatening to aban
don'its plant here since acquiring it
as it has enough factories to look
after its output. Phil Mitchell, local
director, when seen today, stated
that there was no question about the
factory not resuming in the fall, a
fact that he regretted as much as
anybody possibly could.
"The "factory employs SO skilled

K. S. Kendall is in the Scott county
jail on a charge of Embezzlement,
pri ferred by J. P. Fleming, of Kock
Island. Mr. Fleming commissioned
Kendall to make certain sales of per
sonal effects and to collect, payment
for them in installments. Although
Kendall is said to have collected over
$100 he has made no returns to the
complainant, and action is brought
i"-ainst him for embezzlement. To
allow a safe margin Hie amount that
he is alleged to have converted to his
use is in" the information placed at
S25, but the affair looks just as bad
for the prisoner as if the amount
were o-reater, as the penalty is the
same f?r the theft of $25 as of $100.
