UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF WALES. A meeting of the council of the college was held on Monday, the 9th instant, at Lonsdale Chambers, London. Mr Henry Richard, M.P., presided, and among those present were Sir R. Cuulitfe, Bart., Mr Stephen Evans, Mr Lewis Morris, Mr Morgan Lloyd Q.C., the Hon W. N. Bruce, Mr W. Williams, M.A., Mr A. C. Humphreys-Owen, Rev Principal Edwards, D.D., Mr J. F. Roberts, and Miss Hughes. The principal business was the appointment of a professor of chemistry in the room of the late Dr Humpidge. Applications were received from several caudicates, and of these five were invited to meet the council. After interview and a careful examination of the testimonials of the selected candidates, Dr H. Lloyd cinape, senior lecturer on chemistry, physics and chemical technology at Owen's College, Manchester, was appointed. The new professor took the degree of D.Sc. at the University of London, and completed his training in Berlin and Gottingen under some of the most famous chemists in Europe. Dr Snape has also very recently taken the degree of Ph.D. at the University of Gottingen. He was strongly recom- mended by several well-known chemists, among others by Professor Hofmann, of Berlin. Allusion having been made to the recent death of Mr Lewis Davis, of Ferndale, a vice-president of the college, and one of its most munificent benefactors, a resolution was passed expressing the sincere sym- pathy of the council with the family of the deceased gentleman.
