Institution of Mining Engineers


    THE sixteenth annual general meeting of the Institution of Mining Engineers was held at Manchester on September 13, 14, 15, and 16 under the presidency of Sir Lees Knowles, M.P. The report of the council contained an expression of deep regret at the loss sustained by the death of the president, Sir Lowthian Bell. The Institution of Mining Engineers is a federation of seven local mining societies—the Manchester Geological and Mining Society; the Midland Counties Institution of Engineers; the Midland Institute of Mining, Civil and Mechanical Engineers; the Mining Institute of Scotland; the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers; the North Staffordshire Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers; and the South Staffordshire and East Worcestershire Institute of Mining Engineers. Since the formation of the institution in 1889, the membership has increased from 1239 to 2901 in 1905.
