The Real Secret of the Abandoning: of the
Hock Island CilKH Ptantr
As long ago as February last there
appeared in a trade journal published
in Chicago the following relating to
the future. movements of the United
Glass company, which recently de
termined to close down its plant in
President Catlin. of the United
Window Glass company, is reported
as follows, in an Ottawa. 111., paper,
which difinitely settles the move
ments and intentions ol that corpor
ation for gome lime to come, at
"It is true that we have, lieen lig
uringon a grent many changes and
have at last decided upon a plan of
action. We have been granted the
natural gas franchise on several
thousand acres of land at Alexandria,
in the natural gas belt of Indiana.
The promoters of a new town have
also given us several acres of land on
which to locate our factories and we
shall at once begin the erection of a
tank house and furnace at this point.
One tank will be erected this summer
and put in operation with t he open
ing of the fall of lfJl3; another will
be built during the spring of lSlU,
and we expect to make these works
the central figure of the United com
"Perhaps the most unfort unate
condition of affairs is the fact that we
are obliged to abandon several of our
works. All that is not movable of
the factories at Howling Green,
Janesville and Kevenna. Ohio; Wells
boro and Wossbrug. Pa.: Durham
ville. Dumbarton, lUirnhard's Bav,
and Clyde. N. Y., will be abandoned.
This will, of course, concentrate a
great many laborers at the new town
of Alexandria, which was started
about a year ago. and now has over
4,000 population. In addition to the
franchises and realty granting al
ready mentioned, we have been
given side-tracks to three trunk lines
of railroads and many other advan
tages that niiike the move one of
necessity with us. You can say em
phatically for me, though, that the
Ottawa and Streator works will re
main intact, and that no change? will
occur unless it be to increase the
output. While I personal'- regret
very much that LaSalle county could
not have secured this prize, it was
out of her reach because she did not
have natural gas."
And then, again, in the April num
ber of the same periodical there ap
peared the following:
Tanks Sul.xt Itutril for rot.
1'he aclivitv which was noticeable
ibwut this time a rear ago among
window r!ass manufacturers toward
ilding large plants and substitut
ing tanks for pots, is just as marked
this year, if not more so. than a year
ao. Such firms as the Hartford
llass company, of Hartford City,
Ind.: Knox, Foltz & Co.. New Castle.
a.; K. C. Schniertz & Co., of Belle-
vernen. l a., and 1 nomas n irhtman
Glass company will positively build
tanks for next season that will in
crease their capacities. The United
Glass company have also broken
ground for two tanks eijlial to 108
pots at Alexandria, Ind. It is true
that this company will dis
pense with all its old
plants except one, when the
new tanks are put in operation, but
at the present time it is only operat
ing 16 pots at lioek Island anil 26 at
Ottawa, 111., and has only been doing
this for some time past. These pots
at Ottawa and Uock Island will be
dispensed with, and only the tank at
Streator, 111., will be kept in service.
However, in the western district the
United Glass eoiupauy, with its two
new tanks, will operate next season
with a capacity equal to 40 pots
greater than during this season. Be
sides, there are tanks in course of
construction at Gas City. Ind.. and
Blair, Pa., and there is talk of a new
company luiililing a 32-blower tank
near Bcllevernon. luerefore, just as
the producing; capacity of the coun
try this season is much larger than
last, so will next season see a greater
quantity of glass on the market. It
is even reasonable to expect that the
number of tank.', of increased eapae
tv that will be built for next season
will be much greater than that al
ready projected. A greater number
of tanks would have been built last
summer had the litigation of the
Siemen's agents against users of deep
tanks not been in the way, and, as
the so-called patents would have ex
pired at anv rate next .November,
the tendency toward more and larjrer
tanks will be jrreater.
