The British Association

    Abstract

    THE Southport meeting promises to be one of the most successful since the Association met in Liverpool twelve years ago. According to the latest statistics it is expected that in attendance it may even rival the York meeting, when over 2500 people gathered to celebrate the jubilee of the Association. From the information we have already published it will have been seen that Southport has shown the greatest zeal in preparing to give a generous reception to the representatives of British science; and if only the weather be propitious, there can be little doubt that the meeting will be a success. Both the papers to be read and the reports to be presented are expected this year to suggest some specially interesting subjects for discussion.

Mr. Dawes' explanation was a very different one.
