Convention Notes.

Sales Manager John W. Brooks of Pass & Seymour, porcelain manufacturers of Solvay, N. Y., arrived in Chicago Friday of last week, and in company with his western manager, Julian Jackson, was at the train "speeding the parting" of their host of friends, who left Chicago for Denver on the two electric-light specials. Mr. Brooks came west alone on the Chicago special and was in constant attendance throughout the Denver gathering. Pressure of business in the East, however, necessitated his leaving without availing himself of the social features that were so hospitably offered by Colorado Springs. It is believed that the increase in the Pass & Seymour factory is largely due to the broad-gauge policy so energetically and aggressively pursued by Sales Manager Brooks. Mr. Brooks was appointed to his position several years ago by General Manager Salsbury. He was chosen by Mr. Salsbury for his present position through his record-breaking work as local sales manager at the Chicago office.
