Abstract

The last monthly evening meeting of the present Session was held
on Monday, November 17th, 1890. The PRESIDENT, Sir R. G. C.
Hamilton, was in the chair.
Messrs. A. J. Ogilvy and A. R. Browne, M.A.M.I.E., F.G.S., were
elected Fellows of the Society.
In relation to strikes and wages, Mr. Ogilvy read a paper asking the question, Can the toiling masses really improve their condition by these
incessant and unhappy strikes, or are they only beating their hands
against the iron bars of inexorable economic law?
Mr. Ogilvy said that the Society had now the two aspects of the
question before them, and it was for the members to judge.
In relation to Actinomycosis and Tuberculosis, Dr. Barnard read a paper on the subject, dealing with its
transmissibility of bovine diseases to human beings by the consumption
of the meat of diseased animals.
The meeting concluded with the President's address.
