BOURNE AND SON.ŚMessrs. Bourne and Son, of Derby, have been fully employed during the year in the department of their manufactory set apart for the production of stoneware electrical productions. The leading shapes and sizes of insulators for telegraphic, electric light, and mining signals, which have been produced in such large quantities by this firm, have been in continual demand, and there has been much activity in the battery cell branches. The most noticeable feature of the trade during the year just past has been the large number of fluid-oil insulators made by the firm for the patentees, Messrs. Johnson and Phillips, whilst the increased activity in the coal trade has stimulated the demand for the insulators and battery cells used in mining operations. As regards the prospects for the year 1890, in addition to an anticipation of a continued demand of what may now be considered the staple articles of the trade, the firm has reason to expect larger orders than usual from the Postal-Telegraph Department.
