Mr. M. B. Buxton, M.C., MA., A.M.Inst.C.E. (Member), proposing a vote of thanks to Mr. Frost for his paper, said that the Curnberland Hotel and its annexe constituted one of the largest buildings ever erected in this country, and by reason of the fact that it had bedrooms and living rooms situatcti all round the building, with no external lavatories and bathrooms -a system adopted in many of the Carlatlian and American hotels-it marked a great step forward. The paper and illustrations were of extraordinary interest, for they indicated the great difficulties duo to the site, in connection with the st.celwork and retaining walls, and the special construction adopted, and they indicated how those difficulties were overcome. The Institution was very proud indeed of the fact that one of its members had been appointed engineer for this great building. One might reasonably have expected that one of the well-known civil engineering firms would have been appointed. Mr. Frost was to be congratulated on his appointment, which had done honour to the Institution, as well as to himself.

Bridge Foundations- Part II. A Survey of the Attendant Problems in Design

In presenting Part II of this paper on Bridge I Foundations, it will be necessary occasionally to refer to Part I, but as far as possible both papers are complete in themselves. Back references to Part I are indicated solely for the purpose of avoiding repetition where the subject under discussion is collateral to the previous lecture. H.E. Brooke-Bradley
