THE trustees of the Carnegie Institution met on May 18 and transacted the necessary business to provide for the transfer of all matters to the Carnegie Institution of Washington, a charter for which passed Congress and was approved on April 28. The trustees named in the Act met at once and reorganised under the new charter. The by-laws of the Carnegie Institution were adopted as the by-laws of the new organisation, and the officers of the old organisation were elected. General resolutions adopting all the obligations, &c., of the old institution were passed. Under the new charter no questions can be raised as to the competency of the institution to carry on the operations outlined in the deed of gift of the founder. The executive committee of the Carnegie Institution of Washington met after the reorganisation, and practically completed the making of grants for the year 1904. It will greatly facilitate the work of the executive committee if all those thinking of making applications for grants for 1905 will do so not later than September, as applications for grants for 1905 will then be taken up.
