Convention Notes.

The Electrical Supply company of Madison, Wis., was represented by L. W. Burch, its president, and H. C. Hackney. The display consisted of a full line of central station and construction material for both electric light and telephone systems. Special exhibits were made of Grimshaw and Raven core wires, American Marble company's tubes and insulators, Standard telephones, extension bells, Columbia lamps, sockets, switches and cut-outs. The display was neatly arranged and was very interesting. Mr. Burch reports annual activity in the supply business. The company's new illustrated supply catalogue will be ready for distribution in about 10 days.

The Peru Electric Manufacturing company was ably represented by F. D. Covington, who exhibited a full line of porcelain goods and batteries. One of the company's new specialties, which attracted considerable attention, was a porcelain primary cut-out. This specialty consists of an inverted cup containing a plug carrying a fuse. It is of ample capacity and thoroughly reliable. Another interesting feature of the exhibit were the Hercules batteries arranged with porcelain covers, which are very neat and prevent evaporation. The company also showed some high insulation triple petticoat porcelain insulators of a neat and serviceable design. All who examined this line expressed themselves as highly pleased with the advance made in this line by the Peru company.
