1440 MEDICAL NEWS. Medical News. UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD.-William Osler, D.M., Hon. D.Sc., student of Christ Church, Regius Professor of Medicine, has been elected a member of the Hebdomadal Council.-The remaining degree days during the present term are Thursday, Nov. 30th, and Tuesday, Dec. 19th. UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE.-The following have been appointed examiners for the M.B. and B.C. degrees :-Chemistry : Mr. J. E. Purvis and Mr. W. J. Sell, F.R.S. Physics : Mr. P. V. Bevan and Mr. T. G. Bedford. Biology : Mr. A. E. Shipley, F.R.S., and Professor H. Marshall Ward, F.R.S. Anatomy : Professor A. Macalister, F.R.S., and Mr. F. G. Parsons. Physiology: Mr. F. G. Hopkins, F.R.S., and Dr. M. S. Pembrey. Pharmacology: Professor R. Stockman and Mr. W. E. Dixon. General Patho- logy : Professor S. Delepine and Mr. T. S. P. Strangeways. -The State Medicine Syndicate, in its annual report just issued, shows that in April and October of the present year 71 candidates presented themselves for the examination in public health. 41 candidates were successful in obtaining the diploma. For the examinations in tropical medicine and hygiene held in January and August 24 candidates pre- sented themselves, of whom 16 passed and received the University diploma. In order to cover the somewhat heavy expenses of the examination, which is held partly in Cambridge and partly in London, the fee has been raised to 9 guineas. ROYAL COLLEGE OF SURGEONS IN IRELAND.-At the opening of the winter session of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland the prizes of the previous session were distributed by Mr. Arthur Chance, the President. In addressing the students Mr. Chance said that before applying for a Poor-law appointment they ought to satisfy themselves that the conditions were such as would permit them effi- ciently to perform their responsible duties towards the sick poor ; that the emoluments were sufficient to enable them to occupy a position such as the humblest member of the meiical profession was entitled to ; and that their action did not weaken, or tend to render ineffective, the legitimate protests of their professional brethren. Mr. Chance then proceeded to make some remarks on University education in Ireland. He said that a University degree in law did not confer the right to practise as a barrister or solicitor; neither did a degree in divinity confer a right to ordination ; but in medicine, on the contrary, a university degree was one of the very many recognised portals to the profession. Its possession was usually a substitute for-not an addition to-some other qualification, and its possessor should not be assumed to have a greater professional knowledge than a diplomate of the licensing bodies. Mr. Chance then expressed regret that there was no university in Ireland which made residence essential for its medical degrees and concluded with some remarks on the subject of medical students who, having been educated in Ireland, offered themselves for examination in Scotland or England. The following is the prize list :-Barker anatomical prize (£26 5s.), T. A. Burke ; special prize (£21), J. B. Kelly. Carmichael scholarship (£15), R. M. Bronte. Gold and silver medals in operative surgery: gold, J. Prendiville ; silver, R. Bury and L. Lucas (equal). Stoney memorial gold medal in anatomy: T. Sheehy. Descriptive anatomy: junior: G. C.

VITAL STATISTICS OF SOUTHERN NIGERIA.-It is stated in the report for 1904, forwarded to the Colonial Office by Mr. W. Egerton, the High Commissioner, that the esti- mated European population resident in the Protectorate numbered 500, of whom 157 were officials and 343 merchants or missionaries. In the preceding year the numbers of officials and ’’ others " were 159 and 301 respectively. The net increase of the European population was 40, there being a decrease of two under officials and an increase of 42 under "others." The general health of the Europeans was fairly satisfactory. The deaths during the year numbered 19, of which 16 were attributable to disease and three to accident, giving a mortality-rate of 38 per 1000 compared with a rate of 26 - 08 in 1903 and 27 - 22 in 1902. The chief causes of death were fever and abscess. The invaliding rate for officials was 114 - 68 per 1000 and for ’’ others " 69 ’ 97, the average rate being 84 per 1000. Sickness was most prevalent during the months of May, July, and October, and the highlst death-rate was recorded in August and October. The number of invalidings was greatest in July, August, and September. During the year 31,932 cases of disease were treated, of which 240, or 7-51 per 1000, ended fatally. These included 250 cases of guinea-worm and nine of small- pox. None of the small-pox cases terminated fatally. The number of successful vaccinations was 8711, or 2522 in excess of the figures for 1903, but these figures do not by any means represent the actual number of vaccina- tions performed, as many were made in November under the new vaccination scheme, as to the result of which figures were not available at the close of the year. The sanitary condition of Duke Town was much improved by the laying out of new streets and the relief of overcrowding. The town now presents a trim and clean appearance which excites the admiration and surprise of officials who have had experience of the malodorous squalor of the typical Eastern bazaar. The water-supply is excellent and the sanitary arrangements are being rapidly extended und improved. A lunatic asylum was built in Calabar but legislation will be necessary to give the High Commissioner power to confine therein others than criminal lunatics. Chicken-pox broke out in the Calabar gaol and three deaths occurred from the malady. There was a severe outbreak of guinea-worm among soldiers quartered at Calabar and the Cross River stations. There is no doubt that the troops affected acquired the infection while on active service in the Mkpani country about a year before. By systematic drainage and filling up of swamps much was done to improve the sanitary condition of the stations at Opobo, Bonny, Brass, Forcados, Akassa, Sapele, Warri, Aboh, and As-aba. Thanks to improved sanitation, Akassa, once regarded as one of the unhealthiest stations in the Protectorate, has now become one of the most salubrious. The reputation of Forcados, too, is improving, but much still remains to be done in clearing it of mangrove swamp. The machinery for estimating the total population or even accurately ascertaining the number of births and deaths is so defective that any attempt to give trustworthy figures would be useless. The number of births registered was 153, as compared with 34 in 1903. Of these 91 were male and 62 were female births, 24 being among aliens and 129 among natives. The large increase is due to the adoption of the registration system by more native councils. Of Christian marriages 76 were registered, against 57 in 1903. In Calabar district 51 were recorded. The deaths registered were 211 in number, comprising 130 males and 81 females. Among aliens 48 deaths occurred, while the native mortality was 144. Of Europeans 19 died. The mortality of alien and native infants under one year of age was 38 and of children under seven years of age 66. The general condition of the people is one of dolce far niente. They are not inclined to look far ahead and yet are not content to live from hand to mouth,

a mental attitude which is easily intelligible, although itis discouraging to the Government which aims at theintroduction of a civilisation which will undoubtedly makethe life of the native more strenuous as it becomes moreelevated. The native courts, it is gratifying to find, aredoing excellent work and fostering among the people aninterest in their local affairs. Considering the enormouspopulation there is little crime and, as a rule, the nativeadmits his guilt in striking contrast to the tactics ofaccused persons in other countries. The people are typicalof the country in that they are mentally undeveloped andafford an enormous field for the efforts of the pioneers ofcivilisation. They are free from direct taxation ; they livein comfort and have few or no cares. On the whole theirlot is a happy one.

GENERAL INFIRMARY, LEEDS.-A special meetingof the governors was held on Nov. 3rd to carry into effect arecommendation of the weekly board that Dr. C. M. Chad-wick, whose resignation of the post of honorary physicianwas referred to in THE LANCET of Oct. 7th, should be

recently revised rules provide that any physician who hasbeen on the full staff for a period of 20 years or who hasattained to the age of 60 years becomes a member of theconsulting staff and retains the right to the use of six beds.Should, however, the resignation of any member of thestaff anticipate these events in point of time it is competentfor a meeting of governors specially summoned and actingon the recommendation of the weekly board to elect suchmember to a position on the consulting staff with the sameprivileges as if he had attained to the position throughlength of service. By Dr. Chadwick’s resignation a vacancyfor the post of assistant physician was caused and at ameeting of the special committee for the election of thehonorary staff Dr. W. H. Maxwell Telling was appointed tothis position.RETIREMENT OF DR. R. R. ALEXANDER.-The

medical superintendent of the London County Lunatic

Asylum, Hanwell, Dr. R. R. Alexander, having completedover 32 years’ service, has retired on a pension. OnNov. 2nd he was presented with an illuminated address, adressing bag, and a silver cigarette case from the officers,nursing staff, and administrative staff. Mr. J. Jeffery,chairman of the Hanwell asylum subcommittee of theLondon County Council, presided and in making the presen-tation spoke of the sorrow which everyone present wouldfeel on the occasion of their losing Dr. Alexander. In

handing to Dr. Alexander the gifts he said : " I have muchpleasure in handing these over to you and I hope you willenjoy that rest and refreshment you have so well earned byalways trying to do your best. The committee and theCouncil have recognised your services by giving you thelargest pension in their power to bestow." Dr. Alexander,in responding, expressed his heartfelt thanks for the kindnesswhich he had received and his gladness that he was to besucceeded by Dr. P. J. Baily. The Rev. W. G.
