Chicago, July 15, 1896.
To the Editor:
—I wish to call the attention of the members of the Association to a recommendation made at the last meeting by the Business Committee. The recommendation was not presented to the Association until the last session and was then, through a misapprehension I am sure, laid on the table. The belief that those who voted to lay the resolution on the table, would have voted to adopt it had they understood its provisions; and the belief that it is much easier to consider a proposition of this kind between meetings, than it is in the hurry of a session is my excuse for presenting it now. The recommendation was as follows: (See Journal May 16, 1896. Page 988)." Resolved, That there be made an Executive Council of five, consisting of the three officers of the Executive Committee, and two members chosen by election.
