The improved position of Martin Hall and Co., cutlery and electro-plate manufacturers, of Sheffield, reported to the annual meeting, has been effected, according to the chairman, by substantial reductions in the cost of manufacture and overhead expenses, coupled with the gratifying increase in turnover, which showed signs of being maintained. The arrangement with Gladwin and Co., another big Sheffield firm, is working satisfactorily and profitably to both companies. Part of the scheme of reorganisation has necessitated the closing of the Birmingham factory and the disposal of obsolete and redundant stock. The closing of the works has effected a saving of a substantial amount without any way impairing the output and restricting the range of manufactures. It was also announced that the company has made about 500 new patterns the bulk of them being new lines, and these patterns have enabled the company to show profit.

Mr Ebenezer Hall, of Martin, Hall & Co., Limited, has, at the unanimous request of the Council of the School of Art, accepted the seat vacant by the resignation of Fredk. Thorpe Mappin, Esq. Mr Hall's well-known taste in art and practical knowledge in the manufactures will make him a valuable member of the council. It is expected that Dr. Lyon Playfair will deliver the annual address to the students and friends of the school.
