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.


H. W. Johns-Manville Company, New York (J. W. Perry, manager electrical department): Our business in the electrical line this year has shown a very marked increase over any preceding year. This is particularly true of the enclosed-fuse devices, which are now being used universally throughout the country. During the year we have gotten out a number of new devices, very largely increasing the line of enclosed-fuse protective devices, which we believe will greatly increase the sale of this product next year. The outlook for 1904, we believe, is exceptionally good, particularly in all lines of electrical business.
