Dr. H. C. Allen asked to be informed as to the publication of the TRANSACTIONS of the World's Homœopathic Congress. He wished to know if the Reports, Papers, Addresses and Discussions are to be published by the Institute in connection with its own Proceedings; or, if not, then by whom would they be published and on what terms could Institute members obtain the work?

The President stated that the Institute TRANSACTIONS will not require two volumes. One volume will be published which will comprise, of course, the Proceedings of the Institute meeting, with various items, historical and otherwise, that have been ordered by the Institute at this time, and which make quite a bulky volume. The Proceedings of the Congress we understand, are to be published under the auspices of the World's Congress Auxiliary.

DR. T. F. SMITH: In regard to the publication of the Proceedings, in order to have the Proceedings of the Congress published the same as the TRANSACTIONS of the Institute and Congress at Atlantic City, I move that the Institute publish at its own expense, in connection with the Proceedings of the Institute, one volume of the Proceedings of the World's Congress.

DR. MITCHELL. The situation in regard to the publication of the Proceedings of the World's Congress by the Congress Auxiliary, is as follows: The Proceedings of all the Congresses will undoubtedly be published at the same time; how soon we cannot tell, at Government expense. The Proceedings of this Congress will be published undoubtedly, in a volume bound with the Proceedings of other Congresses. It would be such an expense to publish the Transactions
