Some of the Exhibits at the Street Railway Convention.


The exhibit feature of the convention of the American Street Railway Association, held last month at Madison Square Garden, appears to have been one of the most successful that has ever been known in conjunction with the meetings of this association. There was a large quantity of apparatus displayed, most of which reflected positive advances in the art, there being very few actual "repeaters" from previous exhibitions. Among those exhibitors coming properly within the scope of this paper were the following:

THE H. W. JOHNS MANUFACTURING COMPANY, of New York, had a working exhibit which demonstrated the relative merits of the Sachs Noark fuses and the ordinary open fuse, both on short-circuit and heavy overloads. Two fuse boxes, one for open fuses and one for enclosed Noark fuses, were erected, and by passing current through the two types the difference was made clearly evident. Three large elevated lines, and over 6,000 surface cars have been equipped with No-ark fuses, and the company showed at the Convention two examples of fuse boxes particularly designed for elevated and surface lines. The exhibit was in charge of A. Hall Berry, manager of the electrical department of the New York office; Joseph Sachs, and numerous other representatives.
