The thirty-second convention of the American Waterworks Association is at this writing under full sway, and it looks as though the meeting will be a great success in every respect. The register shows an attendance of nearly six hundred, and this will be increased before the close of the day. Should the present weather continue, the trip arranged for inspection of the waterworks and excursions for the visitors will be carried out without a hitch. Secretary Diven was early on hand on Sunday, but President Milne was unavoidably absent and Vice-President Gwinn a-sisted in the preliminary business of the association. The manufacturers, with their usual enterprise, have a splendid assortment of waterworks appliances on exhibition, and the space set apart to display them is so favorably situated that the exhibitors will, without a doubt, be well satisfied. The program is an unusually large one. but it is anticipated that with close attention to business it will be worked out in the time assigned to the different subjects for discussion At this time it cannot be estimated where the next convention will be held, but it has been learned through some of the members that there is a following for Richmond, if that city desires the honor. 1 here are, however, two or three other places in the field and it is likely a contest will be made for the 19111 meeting. The special train from New York brought a large contingent of delegates, anil the trip was made under the arrangement of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company without a drawback of any kind. As usual, the splendid souvenir edition of FIRE AND WATER ENOINKKRINC lias attracted considerable attention, and the copies arc eagerly sought for by the members. A full report of the convention will be found in the next issue. F, W. S.
