Ebonite is a poor conductor of electricity, it is an insulator. Electrons cannot move easily within it, but can it form and hold a static charge.

How can a conductor be made to hold its charge?

It is not possible to make a ordinary conductor hold it's charge permanently.But you can make a ordinary conductor(e.g.,)a wire to hold charge for a short period.This is because a charge stored in a conductor leaks to the surroundings due to ionisation of air. But it is possible to charge a conductor like a copper sphere. for this the copper sphere is first connected to ground and a negatively charged ebonite rod near it.the copper sphere becomes positive as the negative charges in it flow to the ground.the sphere is disconnected from ground and the ebonite rod is taken the copper sphere holds positive charge. note: it is easy to charge an ebonite rod by rubbing it with fur.
