Tho largest plant Is that of the John A
Iloebllng's Sons Company, which employs
SOW men nnd occupies 40 different build
ings In Trenton alone. The company has
other extensive plants at Ilocbllng, N. .1.,
where It has built a town for Its em
ployes, It Is said thnt the plants are now
running nt full capacity, largely on war
orders, but no dentil',- Information could
bo obtained from the management.
After Iron nnd wire, the pottery Indus
try of Trenton ranks next In Importance.
There are several subdivisions of this
business. Some firms dovoto themselves
to the manufacture of sunltnry appli
ances only: others to decorative table and
household trade, some to tiles nnd flooring
and still others to porcelain for electrla
requirements. One firm manufactures the
finest art productions to be found In any
country In the world.
The Trenton Potteries Company Is tho
largest manufacturer of high-grade sani
tary ware. It employs about 1400 persons
nd Is now running at about "5 per cent,
capacity. It Is altogether dependent on
building trade conditions, which for some
time have not been so brisk as formerly,
but nre beginning to show an Improve
ment. The company has a small export
business with South America, and before
tne war exported some of Its products to
England, Russia and Germany. Mr. John
H. Campbell, president of the company,
says the outlook Is more hopeful than for
some time past.
Almost similar conditions prevail in
the other pottery establishments.
The Lennox, Inc.. Pottery Works turns
out tha finest decorated art ware to be
found In any country. For more than
two years It has been working at full
capacity. The plant gives employment
to more than HO experts. Quite --T.it-ly
the management has been olillgcd to
turn down large orders, as tho present1
capacity of the plant Is overtaxed. This
condition Is the result of gradual growth.
It Is not Influenced In any way by the
European war, but Is title to the merit
of Jhe company's output winning Its way
over tho finest productions of Kurope,
and also to tho Improved general busi
ness conditions In this country. Some of
the company's fine decorated plates
bring as high as $7D0 a dozen. At pres
ent the management Is making arrange
ments to extend the plant, but It must
always Bo limited to extent by tli dltll
culty of securing very high-class artists
and experts. The company employs tine
clays, potash and other necessary prod
ducts which havo Increased enormoujly

1 have thought much and deeply slnco
the day I talked with you upon this
subject. Hut It Is plain to mo that, much
as I wish I might help your committee,
there aro two kinds of reasons why 1 have
no place In Its membership. The first of
these nre personal; the second are profes
sional. If, by any chance, some state
ment of these lcasono In themselves
might cast albeit a fnlnt glimmer of
light Into n dark maze of mystery (not
to say, mlschlcvousness) In which this
movement hides, perhups you will bear
with mo pntlcntly while I present them.
MYSTKItY IN MOVE.MKNT.
For It Is plain thnt this whole move
ment Is mysterious. Just what the rea
son for secrcttvcncHS can bo on the part
of a man and his master, I mean tho as
sistant In a given parish and his rector,
whose appointee he Is and who by tho
adage "qui faclt per ulluni fnclt per He"
Is accountable for the acts of his agent.
I have no way of knowing. Hut there Is
the plnce where some pointed Inquiry
ought to begin. In plain point of fact,

this club from Its earliest organization.

RUDDER TRADE IMPROVED.
One of the largest rubber .companies in
Trenton employes COO hands nnd Is now
running nt about 50 per cent, capacity,
which Is an Improvement over some
months ago. Besides general rubber,
the company manufactures tires nnd in
ner tubes, but not truck tires. Its busi
ness has not been Influenced In any way
by the war. It has no European export,
but exports to South America and Aus
tralia. Its greatest drawback In recent
limes has been from ruinous homo compe
tition, which has put several manufac
turers out of business. The present out
look Is decidedly hopeful.
The largest linoleum plant In Trenton
Js at present working at 100 per cent, ca
pacity In some departments and n llttl
less In others. It was explained that such
a condition in itself In this particular
inanufacture does not necessarily reflect
prosperous conditions, as these goods
must oe manufactured in anticipation and
stored pending orders. So that frequently
orders may bo few and the plants run
ning full and vice versa.
The management of tills plant acknowl
edged that its views of the future out
look had recently undergone a change and
wore now decidedly optimistic. This is
the result of a more cheerful tone in the
conversation of dealers all over the coun
try rather than from actual orders re
ceived. The Princeton Worsted mills is the
largest woolen manufactory in Trenton,
and at present employs about ISO hands.

THE PERSONAL EQUATION.
And one other word In preface. The
personal equntion here Is a large tqua-
Hon, but It is one that this commttteo

algebra. They ought to do this before
they take one further step. They ought
to ask, they should demand nn answer to

with three great watchwords. Home nnd

To combine them was a task for Hono

combined. Is there here or hereabouts
any one man whose domestic felicity,
church ordination and unquestioned citi
zenship embody theso three things, and
all at once, so signally ns that he should
found a club to supersede your churches?
Personally, I do not think so. But, of
cqurse. you will excuse mo from dwell
ing on this first of these two kinds of
reasons, and pardon my passing on to
those professional instead.
As I understand, this committee comes
into existence pursuant to a resolution
passed at a meeting of as many as COO
clergymen and other men, of practically
all Protestant denominations, two weeks
ago. in the Arch Street Methodist Church,
a meeting called In public protest to

succession could so effectively confirm

the method known as "laying on of

PROTEST WRONGLY DIRECTED.
Now, that point may or may not be a
point well taken. Tho important fact for
me is that I am not In a position pro
