American Street Railway Convention Notes.

F. LOCKE, of Victor, N. Y., associated with Archbold-Brady Company, of Syracuse, had a striking and effective display of high-potential porcelain insulators. A separate dark room had been fitted up containing a high-potential transformer capable of giving a potential of 175,000 volts, and with it over 100,000 volts were thrown on groups of porcelain and glass insulators to show how they could stand up under the enormous strain. Mr. Locke was present to explain the resisting powers of his insulators.
