AS has already been announced, this meeting was held in September, under the presidency of Prof. Mascart, and lasted seven days (September 17-23, inclusive). The last meeting of a similar character had been held in Munich in 1891. The Paris meeting was attended by some forty members. Canada and Mexico were represented for the first time; neither Spain, Portugal, Brazil, nor the Argentine States were represented. The Weather Bureau, Washington, sent no one; Mr. Page came from the Hydrographic Office, Washington, but only in a private capacity.
