SOUTH WALES INSTITUTE OF ENGINEERS. THE LEWIS PRIZES. A general meeting of the South Wales Insti- tute of Engineers was held on Monday morn- iner at the institute, Cardiff, Mr. K. K. Jordan, F.G.S., presiding. In opening the proceedings the Chairman said that a new sheet of the geological survey map had just been issued. It comprised the district between the Taff Vale and Pyle. The next sheet would take in the disi-rirt. f,YrI ihor. -&.4.4 U40ULAVO 11 VU1 AUC1* dare to eath. consequently the whole of the eastern coalftelds of South Wales would be in- cluded in these two sheets. Instead of having one tint, the maps were printed in three tints, showing the different strata, which was very satisfactory. He felt great gratification at findiilg that several statements that he made about the seams 24 years ago, which were not well received by many of his friends at the time, were now confirmed by the gentlemen constructing the geological sur- vey. After the election of several new members the Chairman said that the examiners had awarded the Lewie prizes for essays on "Col- liery Surface Arrangements" to Mr. S. S. Everett, late of Pentre, RhonHda Valley (1st prize): and Mr. Ernest H. Thomas, Gadlys, Aberdare I?nd prize). In making their award they said that the essays were well worthy of the prizes. They were sorry (said Mr. Jordan) that neither of the winners was able to be pre- sent. There was nothing that helped a man in a profession more than the preparation of papsrs upon certain subjects to be read before men who knew as much (perhaps more) about the subject as he dM. It crystallised his views and made him a better man. Mr. White, who received the first prize on behalf of the winner, said that Mr. S. A. Everett had gone to Nottingham to take up a position that was a great advance upon the one he held at Pentre. Paper3 were then read and discussed—"End- less Winding," by Mr. T. A. O'Donahue; "Deep Pumping at the Elliot Colliery." by Mr. E. M*. Hann; "Pit-head Pulley Framings," by Mr S. A. Everett; "The Relative Positions of Drums and Pulleys in Winding Arrangements," by Mr. G. W. Westprarth; and "Nctes on the Coal Beds of Queensland." by Mr. T. P. Moody
