The Electrical Jobbers’ Convention.
The Electrical Jobbers’ Association, for such the electrical supply dealers of the United States have named themselves, held its annual convention at the Clifton House, Niagara Falls, Canada, July 23, 24, 25 and 26. The attendance was large, delegates coming from such distant points as San Francisco and Los Angeles. The sessions were divided, some being for members only, and some were open meetings at which the manufacturers and others present were invited to participate. This served to harmonize matters and bring the jobber and manufacturer into closer relations.
The entertainments provided were many and varied. The opening day closed with a vaudeville and smoker, which went off splendidly. On Thursday a baseball game in the morning afforded great amusement to the spectators and was an immense financial success through the efforts of W. W. Low, of Chicago. On Thursday evening a banquet was given at the hotel and was attended by upwards of 300, including members and guests.
