Tho steel workers who have been
employed on the new Hotel Fairmont
will leave here some time next week,
the steel work on the hotel being now
praeticallv complete. The workmen
will go from here to Baltimore where
they will place 1.000 tons of steel in
a building for the Canton Copper company.
The brick being ttsetl in the orec
Hon of the now hotol Fairmont is being
manufactured by the Hammond
Fire Brick company at Colfax. A handsome
rough finish red brick is being
used for the face of the building while
the rear and sido walls arc of a conventional
red. Stone for the trim Is
coming from Bedford, Indiana, and is
a handsome, white, fine grained mate
rial.
A fifth 1.900 iiorsepower gas engine
I unit for the Hutchinson power plant
I of the Monongnhela Valley Traction
company, was ordered yesterday and
will arrive and be erected early next
spring. It lias been known for some
time that an additional unit would be
necessary to keep stop with the "fifty
in five" movement and little surprise
was occasioned when the traction company
announced the order. The now
engine, ordered from the Bethlehem
Steel company, and the new genera
tor, rrom \\ esllngliouse Electric, will
be placed in a position uniform with
that of the four units already belongItik
to the traction company, which,
however, will necessitate the enlarging
of the building along lines provided
for when it was originally built. The
fourth unit of the company, now being
installed, will be ready for operation
about the first of December.
Large contracts held by Eisner
Brothers, contractors, for the building
of company houses in many of the
mining towns of the county, are being
rapidly finished and probably before
extreme cold weather makes carpenter
work impracticable, will bo completed.
A force of 12.1 men is employed
in different parts of the section, by
the Kisi.nr company.
