DUKE OF WESTMINSTER ON ARCHITECTURE. 0 The Duke of Westminster presided over the annual meeting of the subscribers to the Royal Architectural Museum and Westminster School of Art, Tufton-street, London, on Friday. In returning thanks for his re-election to the presidency his Grace made a speech on modern styles in metropolitan buildings. He feared London was being spoiled by a jumble of archi- tectuml fashions due, perhaps, to the modern tendency to eclecticism. He had not been guiltless in this respect, but, according to his lights, he had endeavoured to retain something of the grand old style in some of the houses he had caused to be built for himself. It was true that London smoke ruined everything, but even this did not justify the use of cement, which was now too frequently employed, and which, of all architectural abominations, was the worst.
