IN September last it had been arranged that representatives of the Institution of Civil Engineers should visit the United States in response to an invitation from the American Society of Civil Engineers, but international unrest in Europe resulted in the cancellation of that visit. Had the visit taken place, it was intended that Mr. W. J. E. Binnie, who was then president of the Institution, should present to the American Society of Civil Engineers a replica of the Myddelton Cup, as a token of the friendly relations which have existed between the two societies. Lord Lothian has now, however, on behalf of the Institution, handed the replica to Colonel D. H. Sawyer, president of the American Society, at a gathering of the members of that Society held in Washington on January 9.
