Electrochemistry in America

THE third meeting of the American Electrochemical Society took place in New York on April 18. Three meetings may seem rather a small number for a society which has been in existence for more than eighteen months, but the society, which has members from all parts of the United States, only meets once in six months, and the meetings assume the form of a congress, which lasts several days. This style of meeting, which might be compared to the annual meeting of the Society of Chemical Industry, in which members from all parts of the country meet together each year in a different town, partly for work and partly for social intercourse, has certain obvious advantages, in that country as well as town members are able to attend; there is, however, one disadvantage, and that is that papers are only published once in six months. The transactions of the society are also only published once in six months, hence they contain the concentration of six months' work.
