The new plant of the Whiting Manufacturing Company, one of the largest makers of solid silver hollow and flat ware in the world, is all but completed, and H. H. Hamilton, the resident member of the company, announces that in a week the wheels will begin to turn in a portion of it, and it is hoped to have all departments in working order by the middle of April. It is expected that at least 350 hands will be employed at an average of $19 a week.

Leah Ahlborn, a famous die sinker of the Royal Mint at Stockholm, has accepted the commission to cut the dies for the medal struck to commemorate the erection of the Washington statue in Wall street, which is to be issued under the auspices of the American Numismatic and Archaeological Society and the New York Chamber of Commerce. This artist is perhaps the finest medalist of the age. Her latest work commemorates the silver wedding of the King and Queen of Sweden. She also cut the dies for the Henry Stanley medal. The idea of the Washington medal is due to the public spirit of the Hon. Algernon S. Sullivan, C. L. Tiffany, Augustus St. Gaudens and G. L. Feuardent, the committee appointed to select a design—and a better committee it would be hard to find —decided on the one submitted by the Whiting Manufacturing Co.
