Considerable objection was made to the sharp whistle of the Rockford Silver Plate Co. by the business houses in the locality. The company have replaced it with a new chime, presented them by the Erie Iron Works. The new whistle is immense, being 15 inches in diameter and 38 inches long. The peculiar merit consists in producing three distinct tones pitched to the first, third and fifth of the common musical scale, making a very agreeable musical chord. When applied at full force it can be heard 20 miles.

The cup, including the ebony plinth on which it rests, is 22 inches high and its most characteristic features are the three potatoes, emblematic of the most important product of Weld County. On one panel is engraved a harvest binder, surrounded by sprays of wheat. Around the top a grapevine border is applied.

The cup is now being placed on exhibition for short periods in different towns in Weld County in order to give competitors a chance to see it at close range.

The Rockford Silver Plate Co. resumed operations last week. A large contract for goods was closed and nearly all the idle hands have been set to work. The factory will run on full time, but wages are reduced about 10 per cent. The cut extends to all paid officers and the office force. The working force as far as possible will be put on piece prices. Owing to the condition in trade Superintendent Coan will take orders and Secretary Kelley again assumes the management of the factory through the former system of superintendents in each department.
