The present proposal is to I unite all these into one central i sembly as the highest court for the whole Dominion. Tbe Alberta asso- ciation approved of the principle, providing satisfactory terms can be arransred and the matter can be set- tled. It was laid over, however, for fur- ther consideration.

The subject of evangelization receiv- ed thoughtful consideration through- out the meeting. While it was felt that the Baptist church is a srrent deal in the line of missionary work, the necessity of greater effort along the line of work in the home missions was emphasized. It was felt that the work was not making the progress it should in this now country. While the number bap- tisms durinir' the year.'

Mr. McEachern is a dis- tinguished graduate of Queen's Uni- versify and was a member of that staff ior several years. He is doctor of philosophy of the University' of Leipzic, Germany. The president of the university lias been authorized to arrange for the teaching of chemistry and to obtain a lecturer in mathematics and physics for one year. Tbe Senate decided to organize a department of civil and municipal engineering and Professor Edwards has been promoted to tbe professorship of this department. The organization of the department was deemed necessary on account of tbe problems connected with this- work that are eonstaritlv arisinc in thft.. provin.ce. Although the details of a definite plan were left to a later meeting of the Senate it was agreed to offe? sites on the University grounds for de- nominational colleges, so as to place these institutions in. juxtaposition to the centraj university. It was also agreed to provide a site for a-ho.spital on tbe grounds and a board will be created to co-operate with tbe city of Strathcona to erect their hospital on tbe site selected. This :spital: is to be large enough to accommodate medical- tetflchiig when ffutujre ex- pansions .of the university render ne- cessary tbe establisbing of a medical faculty. A committee consisting of Dr. Premier Rutherford and Mr. P. J. No- lan, were appointed to confer witb the judges of the supreme court and the law society of the province with a view to arranging a course of study, for students at law. Drs. Ferris, Boyd and Galbraitb, with President Dr. Tory, were named a committee to confer with the coun- cil of the .College of Physicians and Surgeons to take steps for co-opera-' lion between that body and the uni- versity relating to medical education.
