    THE autumn meeting of the Iron and steel institute was held in Vienna on September 23 and 24, under the presidency of Sir Hugh Bell, and was largely attended, there being about 450 members present. The proceedings opened with addresses of welcome by the chairman of the reception committee by the Minister of Agriculture and Mines as presentative of the Austrian Government, by the Mayor of Vienna, and by the president of the Austrian Society of Engineers and Architects, in the building of which the meeting was held. The addresses of welcome, which were delivered in German, having been translated by the secretary, Mr. Bennett H. Brough, the president, Sir Hugh Bell, responded in an eloquent German speech, and incidentally announced that the Archduke Frederick of Austria, who had acted as patron of the reception committee, had accepted honorary membership of the institute. The technical business then began.
