The subjoined letters from representative men engaged in various electrical or closely allied industries speak for themselves. They review the history of the year just closed from a business point of view, from various localities and in diversified aspects. They show that while the high-pressure demand subsided during the latter part of the year, the condition of trade, generally speaking, seems to be a healthy one, with indications pointing to fair and steady, but not record-breaking, business in the presidential year now entered upon.


Mica Insulator Company, New York (Franklin Brooks, vice-president): We are gratified to state that our business in insulating materials during the year 1903 has been extremely satisfactory. The demand for our goods in the latter part of the year 1902 was so large that, in order to fill our orders promptly, we were obliged to erect additions to our factory. These additions, together with the improved and special machinery installed, enabled us to greatly increase our output. Our business, of course, depends to some extent upon the activity of the manufacturers of electrical machinery, and, as this field is a constantly expanding one, we look forward to a larger volume of business in the year 1904.
