TENTH ANNUAL MEETING.

OXFORD, June 28th, 29th, and 30th, 1883.

GENERAL BUSINESS.

THE Members assembled in the Council Chamber, at Oxford Town Hall, when Mr. C. Jones, President, took the chair. The Minutes of the Annual Meeting held in London in June 1882 were first read, confirmed, and signed.

The SECRETARY then read the Annual Report for the year ending April 30th, 1883.

ANNUAL REPORT.

The Council have much pleasure in again presenting their Annual Report, and specially congratulate the Members on the increasing and successful progress of the Association during the past year.

Since the last Annual Meeting, which was held in London in July 1882, four District Meetings have been held: at Tynemouth, on the 27th September ; at Llanwddyn, on the 25th October ; at Rochdale, on the 16th March ; and at Middlesborough, on the 23rd June. These District Meetings continue to maintain their popularity and to infuse more and more energy into the practical working of the Association.

The visits in connection with these meetings, to the various interesting works, have proved an important and highly valuable feature, and continue to be warmly appreciated by the Members.

These facts are satisfactorily proved by the numbers attending,

B

by the interesting papers of high technical value, and the well sustained discussions that followed them.

The Council have the satisfaction of announcing that sixteen new Members have joined the Association during the past year. Four Members have resigned, four have been written off, the letters addressed to them having been returned marked "No address”; and regret to have to report the deaths of four Members, viz. Messrs. J. S. L. Downie, of Skelton; George Thompson, of Derby; W. J. Boys, of Walsall, and J. G. Lynde, of Manchester.

The number of Members on the role of the Association at the close of the year was 5 Honorary Members, 210 Ordinary Members, making 215 in all.

The Council trust that each Member will use his best endeavour to augment this steadily increasing total, as the efficiency of the Association will be materially advanced by increased numbers.

In accordance with the Rules of the Association, the Ballot lists were issued with the result that the following gentlemen have been elected to the Council :

President.-W. H. White.
Vice-Presidents.-J. Lobley, A. W. Parry, and R. Vawser.

Ordinary Members of Council.-H. P. Boulnois, E. Buckham, R. Davidson, Jos. Gordon, T. Hewson, S. Harpur, H. U. McKie, W. G. Laws, J. Proctor, G. E. Thoms, T. C. Thorburn, and T. Walker.

General Honorary Secretary.Chas. Jones.
Treasurer.-Lewis Angell.

The satisfactory state of the Association is borne out by the accompanying duly audited balance sheet of the financial year, showing a balance in hand on the 30th of April of 1261. 18s. 4d.

The amount in hand on same date in the previous year is 1061. 10s. 3d.

The statement of assets and liabilities goes also to show the sound financial position of the Association.

The Council have had before them the consideration of several towns as suitable centres to hold the next Annual Meeting, and recommend that Newcastle-on-Tyne should be selected for the next Annual Meeting of the Association.

The President moved and Mr. Pritchard seconded the adoption of the Report.
