Convention Notes.

The Creaghead Engineering company of Cincinnati showed a very complete line of overhead line material, including the well-known flexible bracket for high speed suburban and interurban lines. These brackets were shown in many designs, both plain and ornamental, and for wood and iron poles; also a full line of malleable iron cross-arms and pole fittings. This company also made a very attractive display of the well-known Manhattan 150-hour arc lamp, showing five burning in series on the street railway circuit, one burning singly on the 110-volt direct current circuit and the new alternating lamp burning on a 100-volt circuit. The display was in charge of G. R. Scrugham. It is said that the company's "long burning" Kentucky souvenir was in great demand.
