The following symposium is based on responses to the Western Electrician's request for expressions of opinion from representative concerns in the electrical industry reviewing the business of 1904 with a forecast, where practicable, of that of 1905. These letters make interesting reading; they are far from being merely a dry chronicle of business routine; not a few give insight into the deeper philosophy of trade. They come from various localities and represent the diversified branches of the industry. They are almost uniformly cheerful in tone and presage a good year in 1905.


Pass & Seymour, Solvay, N. Y. (J. W. Brooks, sales manager): The year just closing has been exceedingly satisfactory to us, particularly the last few months, when our factory has been running with a larger force than ever before in our history. We certainly think that the outlook for 1905 is exceedingly bright, and are increasing our manufacturing capacity to take care of the same.
