Edward Holbrook, of the Gorham Manufacturing Company, In speaking of the Increased demand for silver in the arts since its reduction in price, said that his company was now making great lines of articles in silver which had never been made in that metal before the decline in the price. "It is too early to say anything about the uses to which cheap sliver will be put," he said, "but there can be no doubt that the list will "grow continually." While he spoke a messenger handed him a package which contained a pair of solid silver stirrups. "There," he said, "is the best Illustration of what l said. This is the second pair made by us recently, and, as silver becomes cheaper I dare say we will receive enough orders for them to warrant keeping them In stock."

“Your Honor, for 19 years I have been employed by the Gorham Co. as a silversmith. During that time I have borne a good reputation and have lived an honorable, upright life, but at last I succumbed to the temptation and I ask you to be merciful in the name of my wife and children ’’ pleaded Jacob Unger, 48 years old, when arraigned before Judge Rueckert Saturday morning in the Sixth District Court. Unger was charged with the larceny of eight dollars’ worth of silver scraps from this concern. The police told the court that while the thefts had been going on for several months, they were of the opinion that this was his first offense. He bitterly bewailed his fall from the path of rectitude and said that he could not explain why he had taken the metal. Upon the reading of the charge he pleaded guilty and was fined $20 and costs.

The shops of the Gorham Mfg. Co. in Elmwood resumed their regular schedule of working hours last week. The plant reopened Monday morning, Feb. 10, with its full force of 1,700 hands at work. The shop had been running on a 44-hours-a-week schedule from Thanksgiving week until about three weeks ago, when a lay-off of two weeks was taken in order that an inventory might be made. Last week Superintendent Lawton stated that the resumption of the regular schedule was due to a general improvement in business conditions and more settled affairs. He said that business is getting to its own level again, and that while the outlook is not as bright as it was last year it is not half so erratic as it was two months ago. “Business,” said he, “has not resumed a normal state, but it is showing a gradual improvement.”
