A Plan Submitted by J. Esler Ecicerson to Relieve the l Brickmakers. ( The Brick Manufacturers Association hold a meeting in the Corporation Rooms on Thursday afternoon. About j one-half of the brick manufacturing s firms of the vioinity wore represented. Mr. J. Eiler Eukirson was present, and ' submitted a plau which, if adopted, r would relieve those manufacturers who ] were compelled by the terms of their J leases to manufacture a stated number ' of brick. The plau of Mr. Eokerson is [ that in dull times, such has have pre- n vailed in the brick business far the last ( year or so, the landlords aro to release the tenants from being compelled to manufacture the compliment as stipu- * lated in the lease, thus placing the land- lord and tenant on an equal footing, as \ under a number of the preseut ltases the manufacturers are compelled to pay e rent for the compliment stated even if * I hey are not made. In order to find the J sentiment of the landlords in rtgard to J this arrangement, Messrs. Henry Chris \ tie, 11. N. Wood, Torrance Maguire, James Q Scolt and M. U\ Washburn \ were appointed a committee to obtain signaturet to the agreement from the e owners of clay property. Should this plan be endorsed by the owners it may *- prove the solution of the question of F curtailment of the output, ni many 11 manufacturers Were compelled to maun- 1 facture their compliment last season at ! a loss. Representatives were preseut ! from the new gas company which is ' being formed, aud attempted to explain 0 how much cheaper bricu could be burn- 11 ed with gas than with either coal or woo.l The evident inteution of tbo gus *- company, however, is to first obtaiu ' subscribers for the stock of the concern, alihough the ofiicials of the company 1 claim to have sufficient capital to erect \ the works, and demons rate their * ability to burn brick economically.
