The exhibits of the convention were a very striking feature and in number and importance it is safe to say exceeded the expectations of the delegates in attendance. The main body of the exposition building was given up to the manufacturers and supply men and it was well filled with apparatus and supplies. Many of the larger exhibits, consisting of cars and electric motor equipments, were shown outside machinery hall and in operation on the various lines of railways throughout the city. The fact that the convention meetings were held under the same roof with the exhibits gave the delegates the best possible opportunity to examine the new and improved appliances offered by the manufacturers and they availed themselves of this opportunity, much interest being shown. The wisdom of having the exhibits close to the meeting place of the delegates was very evident.

THE H. W. JOHNS MANUFACTURING CO., New York, made a very neat exhibit of insulating materials and its other various specialties. The location of the company was conspicuous and attracted much attention. Among the things shown were samples of vulcabeston, controller parts, moulded mica, trolley line insulators, weather-proof sockets, etc. The interests of the company were well looked after by Mr. W. F. Crane of the New York office, together with H. G. Issertel. J. W, Perry of the Philadelphia office was also present.
