The Royal Society Committees


    FEW outsiders are aware of the amount of administrative work done by the Royal Society by means of its numerous committees. The work in this direction done during the past year is so well set forth in the recent anniversary address (just published) of the president, Dr. Hooker, that an abstract of it will no doubt be interesting to our readers. The principal committees are the Eclipse Committee, the Transit Naturalists' Committee, the Arctic Committee, and the Challenger Committee.
