Waterwork, Manufacturers’ Association.
The third annual report of the secretary and treasurer of the Waterworks Manufacturers’ Association is a very creditable document, and the figures show the institution to be in a very prosperous condition. The secretary, Ernest K. Sorenson, says: “Judging from the success attained at the conventions for the last three years the success of the coining convention at Louisville is assured, and arrangements are now under way for the handling of the several features in our charge. During the past year we sent out a circular letter requesting our members to aid us in increasing our membership, and we again solicit your help in this direction. Write to one of your friends in the waterworks field, and at the same time forward his name to the secretary, who will follow it up from this end.”
No doubt under the direction of Mr, John C. Kelley, Jr., the president of the association, next year’s convention will be a record one, both in point of attendance and entertainment. The executive committee for the current year is: A. P. Smith Manufacturing Company, National Me ter Company, Horsey Manufacturing Company AUis-Chaimers Company, Standard Asphalt and Rubber Company, H. Mueller Manufacturing Company, Rensselaer Valve Company, Centra! Foundry Company, International Steam Pump Company, Pittsburgh Meter Company, Waterworks Equipment Company, R. D. Wood & Co., Chapman Valve Manufacturing Company, Neptune Meter Company, the New York Continental Jewell Filtration Company. The treasurer’s statement shows a balance of $1,950.96, after payment of all expenses. If the visitors to Louisville are to make a trip to the Mammoth cave no doubt this sum will come in handy, but it will prove the trump card of the game of entertaining members of the association.
