All of the employes (1,200 in number) of the Etruria, Prospect Hill and East Trenton potteries, belonging to the Cook Pottery Co., have resumed work, and everything is progressing smoothly.

The plants were all shut down a week ago Saturday owing to a difference of opinion between Charles Howell Cook and the kilnmen as to the price of certain electrical small ware. For a time it looked as if a serious tie-up would be the result, but on Friday of last week the men and the members of the company got together and the trouble was satisfactorily adjusted with the understanding that the men were to resume work to-day under the new agreement.

The agreement was carried out and the potteries are running now as before the temporary tie-up.
