TEXTThe capacity of the works has been steadily increased, and the Wood, Tabor & Morse engines have become very popular. The total number produced in the twenty-one years since 1859 has been not less than 3,000, and the demand at presnt is greater than at any time before, except, perhaps, for a short period during the excitement in Pennsylvania occasioned by the discovery of oil. Fifty men are employed steadily, and a large share of the work is done by special machinery, which greatly reduces the number of hands required. The force of men includes some who have been in the firm's employ eighteen or twenty years. The foreman., H. R. Hamilton, helped build their first engine twenty-eight or twenty-nine years ago, and has been foreman twenty years. Mr. Wood attributes the success of the engine very much to the policy of steadfastness pursued and the employment of men who by long practice have come to know their business thoroughly. From the first there has been no suspension of the works from lack of business. The Utica firm continued in business fifteen years.
