RING PERSECUTION IN BINGHAMTON

  BINGHAMTON, May 30 (Special).-Much discussion has taken place in this city in the past few days over the action of Recorder F. W. Downs in fining W. F. Burrows, one of the owners of the Binghamton Glass Works, for striking one Patrick Bray, in his employ. Bray a lad of fourteen, used insulting language to Burrows and the latter hit him with a stick. Burrows was later arrested and fined $50 or fifty days in jail. He now asserts that the matter was merely political spite; that a man recently beat a negro boy at the Hotel Bennett savagely, causing blood to rush from his mouth and nose, and yet, because the boy was black, his assailant was fined only $15.
  Burrows says that George O'Neil, a prominent Democrat politician here, came to him and offered to settle the Bray affair for $100, which was the amount Bray's mother owed O'Neil on a mortgage. He indignantly rejected O'Neil's offer, and the latter then used his influence on Recorder Downs, also a Democrat, with good effect. Burrows is a prominent Republican business man, but to-day several Democratic business men declared the fine unjust. Recorder Downs, though an active Democrat, has always heretofore been fair and upright.

  The Binghamton Glass Works are located on McLean street. the company was incorporated in April 1880. Last season, eighty-five men have been employed with an average pay roll of $6,000 monthly. The company now consists of W. Burrows, M. Yetter and W. F. Burrows. Green and amber glassware are manufactured.

A STRIKE AT THE GLASS WORKS
       ____________________

The Blowers Quit Work-A Speedy
    Adjustment of Differences Ex-
    pected.

  The glass blowers employed at the Binghamton Glass Works, in the First ward, struck last Tuesday and all the workmen there employed have since that time been idle. The cause of the strike is a difference of opinion existing between the blowers and the employers as to the prices, and as to the number of apprentices to be allowed.
  Previous to November 12th the blowers were working at the schedule prices with fifteen percent off and two apprentices to each furnace allowed. At the Green Glass Blowers Convention held at Camden, N. J., November 12th and 13th, it was decided to demand a return to the prices paid last year, which was the schedule prices with ten percent off and that no new apprentices be employed during the present blast, or season. Upon being notified of the actions of this convention the Binghamton Glass Works complied with its terms for a short time, after which in accordance with a resolution passed by the Green Glass Manufacturers' convention and under which a large number of factories are now running, their blowers were notified that the prices to be paid and the number of apprentices employed, would be in accordance with the settlement effected between the representatives of the blowers and manufacturers prior to the beginning of the present blast.
  The terms the blowers refused to accept, claiming that the settlement referred to was unauthorized. The Binghamton Glass Works employ about one hundred men and boys. About one-third of the men are blowers and their wages average about $5.50 per day. The payroll amounts to about $5,000 per month. their working season during the year is ten months in duration.

The Glass Manufacturers and Glass
    Blowers Endeavor to Effect a Comp-
    promise, Without Success.

  A conference was held yesterday afternoon at the Knights of Labor Hall on Court street, between members of the Binghamton Glass Manufacturing Co. and sixteen of the glass blowers, who have been employed by that company, for the purpose of endeavoring to reach a satisfactory adjustment of the difficulty now existing between the firm and the men.
  The proposition, which the firm made was that the men should return to work at the prices which, as they represent, are now paid by nearly all the glass works within the Eastern district, the schedule prices with fifteen per cent off; or, if the men doubted this statement, they might begin work at the basis upon which they were formerly employed, and that this arrangement should continue until they had ample time to make the necessary investigations as to its reliability. After deliberating for a time a committee selected by the blowers informed the firm that they could not accept the offer. They advised that but few of the glass works in the Eastern district are running at prices below that which they demand-The schedule with ten per cent off, and it is said that some of the men declare that they are so situated that they cannot accept prices lower than those for which they struck.
  The men were informed that to-day they would be paid off and discharges. The company will immediately commenced arrangements for opening up the works with men brought from other places.

BINGHAMTON GLASSWORKS, 

Manufacturers of Green Glassware, McLean Street and Railroad. 

  The manufacture of glass ware is one of the oddest of industries and one of the few in which the methods of modern manufacturers are practically the same as those of its earlier followers. 
  Binghamton is the seat of an important manufactory of glass ware which is known as the Binghamton Glass Works and of which Mr. William Burrows is the sole proprietor. These works were erected about fourteen years ago, and are located in the western section of the city, adjoining the two main trunk lines of railroad, with which they are connected by side tracks, thus affording every facility for the receipt of raw materials and the shipment of the finished products without rehandling. The plant covers about two acres upon which are erected two furnaces, each having a capacity of five tons daily. Besides these are other minor buildings, warehouses, etc., and the whole is equipped with all the latest improved tools and appliances known to the trade, including a 40-horse power steam engine. 
  The products are what are known to the trade as green glassware and consist of vials, bottles and flasks of all sizes and shapes, chiefly manufactured to order for use by manufacturers and bottlers of proprietary articles medicines, condiments, beverages, etc. and includes also bottles for all commercial purposes. The number of bottles produced so varies according to the sizes made that the total produced daily is not attainable. Sufficient to say that when both furnaces are in operation about ten tons of glassware are produced daily and as the production is almost wholly the result of hand-labor a force of no less than 300 men and boys are given employment. As these are largely highly skilled workmen, it is evident that the operation of these works is an important feature of the industrial thrift of this city. The products of the house are taken by the trade throughout the United States generally east of the Mississippi and their high character is well understood and appreciated by the trade. Mr. Burrows is a native of England where he learned the business and is a practical glassware manufacturer. He also conducts another similar enterprise at Stroudsburg, Penn., where he makes his headquarters. With unrivalled conveniences for shipping, an established excellence of product and a liberal and fair dealing business policy it is but just to say that as conducing to the advancement of the material prosperity of this city by the employment of many skilled workmen, the Binghamton Glass Works is performing a beneficent work while in the pursuit of legitimate profits and may be regarded as a representative concern fully worth the pronounced success it has attained.

BINGHAMTON, N. Y., CORRESPONDENCE

[From The Indicator's Own Correspondent.]

  None of the fire insurance companies doing business here will make very much money this year if there are so many fires during the remainder of the year as there have been so far. There never were so many fires In the same period in the history of the city. With the exception of a few, the losses have been comparatively small, but the aggregate will amount to many thousands of dollars. There seems to be a sort of an epidemic in this respect, and with the exception of one or two, all have been of legitimate origin. During the week a portion of the Binghamton Glass Works burned. Regarding the origin of this fire there is but little question that it was the work of boys, who, either through mischievous design or pure cussedness, set the building on fire. The loss will probably reach $2,000.

     Binghamton Factory Burned Out-Work-
   men Narrowly Escaped With Their Lives.

  Birmingham. May 10--The factory of the Birmingham glass works, the largest of its kind in the southern tier, was totally destroyed by fire shortly after midnight this morning, and several of its night staff narrowly escaped with their lives. the night staff had just finished supper when flames were noticed issuing from the storeroom, which was filled with inflammable material, and before the men could make their escape the large structure was wrapped in flames. Seventy-five employees escaped by windows, by rushing through the smoke and heat. The buildings were totally destroyed. The loss is estimated at $60,000 and it was insured for $40,000.
  The glass works burned down a few months ago, the result of incendiaries and had just been rebuilt. It is thought the fire was started by an employee who had recently been discharged. For a time the many buildings in the vicinity were threatened by the flames, fanned by the high wind, but they were saved with a scorching, The factory will be rebuilt immediately.

Vivid Era of Glass Blowing
      Recalled by Property Sale

  The final chapter on the colorful history of the Binghamton Glass Co. was closed today following sale of the company's real estate on Crandall Street.
  Late yesterday, Frank W. O'Connell, Binghamton contractor, acquired two acres of property on which for 45 years was conducted one of the area's leading manufacturing concerns. Amount paid for the site was approximately $20,000, it was reported. Mr. O'Connell declined, at this time, to announce what use the plans to make the property. Representing the glass company, operated by the John B. Yetter estate, was William S. Richardson. Mr. Richardson of the law firm of Yetter & Richardson. Mr. Richardson, attorney for the estate, was instrumental in affecting the sale.
  Charles W. Turner of the law firm of Deyo, Turner and Normile represented Mr. O'Connell.

Bottles--All Sizes

  Organized about 1888, the glass company manufactured glass products here until about 1925. Between 100 and 150 employees, half of whom were skilled glass blowers, were employed.
  The firm made about 9,000,000 bottles annually in sizes ranging from one-quarter ounce to one gallon capacity.
Many of the bottles were used for bottling of "Swamproot." Others were purchasing by the old Frank G. Harris Co. of Binghamton, extract manufacturers. the firm also had ready markets with numerous other well-known medicine and extract concerns.
  Birmingham businessmen organized the company. Shortly afterwards, the late William F. Burrows and the late Milton Yetter, operators of a glass making concern in East Stroudsburg, Pa., purchased stock in the company. Still later, the late John B. Yetter and the late F. L. Dennis, also of East Stroudsburg, became interested.
  The business was run on a copartnership basis until 1897 when it was incorporated.

Last President

  The firm's last president, A. C. Yetter of 84 chestnut Street, son of John B. Yetter, came from New York City to join the firm as the turn of the century. He first was bookkeeper, then manager and finally president. He recalled today that he was made president shortly before World War I.
  Main building of the plant, which has been razed, had about 15,000 square feet of floor space, Mr. Yetter said. Numerous other buildings also were used for manufacturing.
  Most of them have been razed, except one used for glass wholesaling quarters which the firm now operates, he said.
  San was shipped from all over the United States for the making of bottles, jars and other glass products, Mr. Yetter said. He explained that most of the bottles made here were light green in color. A number of amber colored bottles also were made.
  Glass blowers were trained, he recalled, during a five-year apprenticeships. Full-fledged glass blowers earned as high as $250 a month, he said-"about the highest wages paid in the Binghamton area at the time."
  One glass blower, the late James Warner, had five sons at the plant-all glass blowers, Mr. Yetter said. The sons were William, Fran, Oscar, Harry and the late Thomas Warner.

Glass Blowing Declines

  The hand-blown glass business started to decline shortly after World War I when mechanical glass blowers were introduced in the business.
  Patents on these devices were controlled by the bigger glass manufacturing companies and it was not considered expedient to install such equipment so that the Binghamton Glass Co. could keep pace with its larger competitors, it was pointed out.
  This factor finally led to the decision to abandon manufacturing and to buy and sell glassware at wholesale.
  In the firm's declining years, Stewart W. Yetter and Herbert E. Yetter, sons of the late John B. Yetter, were office manager and factory superintendent, respectively.
  The remaining assets of the Yetter estate, which largely are investments, are administrate red by Mrs. Frank L. Dennis and Harry and A. C. Yetter.
