PRELIMINARY REMARKS BY THE AUTHOR. In submitting this paper for your consideration I would like to explain for the benefit of those who do not know me that I am not a legal man but an engineer like yourselves, and, incidentally, a contractor, and if, as such, I am dealing with rather an unusual subject, I am doing so in the hope that a layman’s experience may be of interest. I do not propose to read the paper, which, no doubt,you have all had the opportunity of perusing, and which I trust will at least, have the effect of bringing to your notice some points of law of which previously you may not have been aware.

Examples of the Underpinning of Heavy Structures. Discussion on Mr. W. Muirhead's Paper

THE PRESIDENT (Professor J. Husband, F.R.C.Sc.I., M.Inst.C.E.) commented on the great interest of the subject of the paper, and said that probably the majority of the members had had to deal with underpinning in some form or another. He had had a good many underpinning jobs to look after, and Mr. Muirhead had put forward in the paper some exceptionally interesting examples of that class of engineering.

The History of the Theory of Structures

I propose in this address to invite your consideration of some of the principles upon which our present day structural design is based and to remember some of the scientists of bygone days to whom we are indebted for the discovery of these principles. A.A. Fordham

The Cumberland Hotel and Annexe. Discussion on Mr. Frost's Paper

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.
