On the steamer I was on crossing
the Atlantis was the owner of the
largest tannery in Glasgow, perhaps
In Great Brltlnn. Ho was coming to
America to establish a branch factory
to tan the leather required for his ex
port trade in this country. The worst
part of it was he found he would be
forced to employ American workmen,
because some contract labor law they
have here would not permit him to
bring his own experienced men from.
Scotland. He said there was no way for
him to get around building the factory
in America, for be could not possibly
pay the outrageous Tar in and soil his
goods here in competition with goods
made in the United States, Many
other manufacturers have determined
to build branch factories here for some
reason. To my knowledge there are
several in Glasgow and more in other
towns, and besld , of course, there
are a great many I do not know any-
about. One other man on tho
steamer was a lace manufacturer at

"Within the past few days a large number
of prominent mon havo oxprossed lndlgna
tion at attitude tho water company has
taken against the borough and yosterday
tho organization of another water company
was predicted. It is understood that more
than ono largo property holdor a"e prepared
to Invost ?5,C i In such an undortaklng.and
that any amount of subscribers for ?SO0 and
upwards stand ready to chip In. One
gentleman said last night, "In view of
tho understanding tho water company
had with tbo borough some years
ago, when the borough gave up tho
project of establishing water works of Its
own, tho company certainly has no moral
standing in its suit for $20 por flro plug,
and.I think tho result will show It has no
legal Btanding. But, however, that may
be, It looks almost coi tain that tho Indigna
tion aroused by the caso will result In tho
formation of a new water company."
