THE annual summer meeting of the Iron and Steel Institute was held last week at Cardiff. The President this year is Mr. E. P. Martin, who is at the head of the executive of the great Dowlais Iron Works; and it was appropriate, therefore, that the meeting should be held in the commercial metropolis of Wales. The meeting was in every respect most successful, though certainly it fell off somewhat from a technical point of view; but that, after all, was largely due to the weather, it being too hot to sit in a lecture theatre and discuss details of iron and steel manufacture. An unusually large number of members attended, and many of them were accompanied by ladies.
