    Article metrics


    THE annual meeting of the Iron and Steel Institute was held on May 4 and 5 at the Institution of Civil Engineers. The chair was occupied at the beginning of the proceedings by Mr. E. P. Martin, the retiring president. The report of the Council was read by the secretary, Mr. Bennett Brough, and showed that during the year 98 new members had been elected, and that the Institute had maintained its prosperous and satisfactory condition. Sir William Roberts-Austen then took the presidential chair, and delivered an inaugural address, which is printed in an abridged form in another part of this issue. A vote of thanks to the president for his address was proposed by Sir Bernhard Samuelson, seconded by Sir William H. White, and carried by acclamation.
