....... Dr. James retires in 1881, when his company was purchased by some of the workman and called the Lancaster Cooperative Glass Works.
     In the early days of Lancaster the glassworks was among the most prominent of the town's industries, and it flourished until 1904. The buildings stood idle for a number of years serving only as shelter for tramps moving through the area. In 1920 the plant was demolished except for one building thought to have been the company store: it is an apartment house today. Part of the old brick furnace lies under the driveway of two homes.

The glass works on Factory street are in full blast; the proprietor, Dr. F. H. James, is filling immense orders for glass bottles. this is one of the leading industries of this town, and furnishing steady employment to a large number of men and boys.

FREDERICK HANNUM JAMES.

Frederick Hannum James, M.D., etc., who died June 28, 1897, was a Corresponding Member since 1866. He was born in Blakeney, Gloucestershire, England, March 9, 1825. The family removed to this country while he was yet a lad, settling in Rochester, N. Y., and he received his education in the schools of that city. He then entered upon the study of medicine in Rochester, completing his course and graduating from the Vermont Medical College, Litchfield, Vermont . He returned to Rochester and, after a number of years of professional work, in 1863 purchased the Lancaster Glass Works and removed to that place. He was a life member of the Buffalo Historical Society, and at the time of his death was a member of its Board of Managers. In 1893 he presented to the Society the splendid collection of coins and medals which now bears his name, and forms one of the Society's most cherished possessions. He was a life member of the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy, a member of its Executive Board since 1889, and was its President in 1894. In 1891 he presented to this Academy his unequalled collection of the works of Francis Seymour Haden, to which he has since made many additions. He also added liberally to the permanent endowment fund of the Academy.

Dr. James was a man of broad culture, courteous, gentle, and generous. His marked energy and strength of character, united with clear judgment and an indomitable will, made him successful in every undertaking, honored by all who knew him. Dr. James was twice married. lie retired from business about ten years ago but retained various positions of trust and responsibility until his death; this event occurred, after many months of suffering, at his beautiful home "The Willows," Lancaster, N. Y.

BOYS WHO QUIT WORK.

MANAGER OF THE LANCASTER GLASS
WORKS TELLS HIS SIDE OF THE 
TROUBLE OF MONDAY
_________

David Hummell, manager of the Lancaster Co-operative Glass Works denies some of the statements made concerning an alleged strike at the works of his company. Mr. Hummell says that on Monday about fifteen young boys employed in the glass works, led by two or three older boys quit work. There was a shut down in the works on Monday, but work was resumed as usual on Tuesday. These boys, Mr. Hummell says, have had the privilege of receiving their pay in money or in orders on a store maintained by the glass company. The employees were permitted to exercise their preference as to the manner of payment. Some of the boys took their pay part in orders and part in cash and others never traded at the store at all.
The company knew nothing of any dissatisfaction till Sunday and even now Mr. Hummell says he does not know why the boys quit work. The company has kept on a number of hands, Mr. Hummell says, largely out of sympathy for the families of the employees and at no time during the ???? of ???? ??? was there a cut in wages. The firm claims to treat its employees fairly and the recent trouble was not one of its making.
