Refer to The Journal of June 7, 1890, and there read the action of the Association, as follows:Dr. Brodie offered a resolution prohibiting the placing of books and other advertising sheets on the seats, when Dr. J. H. Hollister offered the following, which was accepted by Dr. Brodie:Whereas, Certain parties without authority are presuming to make use of the Association for the furtherance of advertising interests; therefore,Resolved, That at all future meetings of the Association, such publications be excluded from the place of meeting either of the General Sessions or of its Sections.Resolved, That in the future each Chairman of the Committee of Arrangements be directed to procure a copyright of the Official Programme, to the end that the financial rights of the Association may be protected by due process of law.This was unanimously adopted.
