THE late Sir John Murray, whose name will ever be associated with the Challenger Expedition, left for scientific purposes certain funds, which have been allowed to accumulate since his death. He desired that these funds should be used for a scientific expedition, a sequel to the Challenger, and such an expedition has now been arranged by his children, who are also his trustees. In seeking to carry out their father's intentions, they sought the advice of oceanographers of all countries as to its venue and objects. The responses were most gratifying, but many of the proposals were beyond the means at the disposal of the trustees, while others represented sections of research already hi progress. All the replies were submitted to Drs. E. J. Allen and W. T. Caiman, the writer acting on behalf of the trustees.
