AT the Brooklyn meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science last summer, it was decided to meet this year at San Francisco, provided reasonable rates of fare could be secured from the trans-continental routes, as it was supposed could be done. Prof. Joseph Le Conte for three consecutive years had crossed the continent, laden with earnest and cordial invitations from the Universities and Scientific Societies of California, and the Common Council of San Francisco, to hold the meeting for 1895 in that city. The shortsighted policy of the railroads, however, refused to grant any concessions; and it has at last been decided to meet at Springfield, Mass., August 29—September 4. The meetings of affiliated societies will begin on Monday, August 26—rather later than the usual time of meeting.
