A year ago March 1 Johnston & Sharp began to break the ground on Bashaw and River streets, where the factory now stands. The work was engineered by Allen Johnston, per sonally, The site was then a swamp and it appeared a huge undertaking to hoist enough dirt on the factory site to have it above the high water mark. About twenty-five thousand cubic yards of dirt were moved to where the factory now stands. The building is built entirely of cement and has a floor space of 90 by 200 feet. The office is situated in the north west corner of the building and is modern in every way. The superin tendent's office is nearly in the north center of the building and is arrang ed with windows so the superinten dent can survey the entire working department of tho factory from his office at any time. A private room is arranged and fitted up for the de signing which is all done by Mr. Johnston. His Own Designs. Most of the machines in the fac tory are of Mr. Johnston's own de signs, these machines cut steel sheets into circular shaped pieces of steel. From this first machine they go to several other machines, each machine performing a certain part of the work that transforms this piece of steel in to a pulley, or pulleys of several dif ferent sizes according to the size wanted. One of the most interesting ma chines is one where hollow balls are made. The operator sits in front of the machine feeding in a flat piece of steel and from which the balls are made at the rate of about 160 a min ute, which are dropped out of this machine a perfect ball, except rough. They are then put in a machine near this same operator where they are brightened and smoothed up. These balls are used as bearings in win dow pulleys, etc. There is about six of these machines in operation during the working hours of the factory. The factory is working every day nine hours a day and employ about fifty people, which Is about the same number of people as were employed in their factory on Tisdale street, previous to their moving to their pres ent factory.
