    IT is stated that the draft charter of the proposed Victoria University has, in accordance with the request of the Lords of the Privy Council, been submitted to that body. According to this draft, the University would have the power of conferring upon all persons, whether male or female, who have pursued a regular course of study in any of its colleges and passed its examinations, all degrees which can be conferred by any other University of the kingdom, with the exception of medical degrees, the Privy Council having declined to confer power as to these at a time when legislation on the whole subject of medical degrees and the licensing power for the practice of medicine has been proposed to Parliament and still remains unsettled. The charter, it is stated, contains provisions for establishing a convocation of graduates of the University, with appropriate rights and functions.
