TABLE No. 2.

CLOSING UP OR SUSPENSION OF WORK IN MANUFACTURING

ESTABLISHMENTS. This table gives the names of manufacturing plants that were closed permanently or temporarily during the twelve months ending September 30, 1910. The character of the industry followed, location of factory, and a brief statement of the reasons for closing, are also shown. Where the suspensions are temporary, the number of weeks or days the establishments were closed is reported.

The total number of establishments reported as having experienced an interruption of work is 30; of these five were closed permanently, and twenty-five for periods ranging from two days to four weeks. One plant was moved out of the State; one iron ore mine was closed and abandoned because it was found impossible to keep it clear of water; one manufactory of confectionery ceased doing business because of the owners' desire to discontinue and retire. The two other firms that closed permanently, did so because of lack of orders. The temporary suspensions were mostly for the purpose of making essential repairs to machinery, or otherwise improving the facilities of the plants ; one among them assigns labor troubles as the cause for shutting down, and several state that falling off in orders was responsible for their difficulties.

Of the permanently closed plants, one each were located in Rahway, Perth Amboy, Dover, Burlington and Wharton. The temporary suspensions were divided over all parts of the State, the city of Trenton having the greatest number. The industries that experienced the largest number of temporary suspensions were pottery ware, silk goods and soft rubber.
