PROBABLE CLOSING OF THE WAUNTREODA WORKS. We regret to hear that Messrs. De Bergue and Co., of Manchester, intend closing their branch establishment known as Wauntreoda Works, near Llandaff, as soon as the orders which they have now in hand are completed. The works in question, which have been in opera- tion some 18 years, and comprise plant esti- mated at ,eao,OOO, employ about 100 meu in boiler-making, who will, in consequence of the determination of the company, be thrown out of work. The Messrs. De Bergue, whose business at Manchester is, we are glad to hear, in a prosperous eondition, are said to have been induced to determine on closing their Welsh branch in consequence of the depressed state of trade, and the low rates at which goods are nowearriedfrom the ohief centres of industry in the .Midland districts. The event, when it takea plaoe, will be seriously felt by the Wauntreoda workmen, whe have hitherto been kept in oonstant employment, and in reoelpt of good wagea.
