THE BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION AND THE TYNEWYDD DOCTORS. At the general raaeting of the British Medical As. sociation, which commenced its sittings at Manchester on Tuesday, the retiring president, Dr. Bartolome, of Sheffield, previous to vacating the chair, alluded to the services rendered by the medical men at tho recent col- liery accident at Tynewydd. He said the services of some members of the medical profession, which were not less heroic and not less valuable, were, ho was sorry to say, less valued than the services of those who merely worked by tho pick, the mattock, and the spadG. The mcdicid profession were acoustoiued to that stato of things, because they could not help it. They had deter- mined, however, to help themselves. Accordingly a com- mittee of the British Medical Association had been ap- pointed, himself amongst the number, to deal with tho whole question. They not only decided that those gentlemen who were engaged in theaceident at TynowyJd were worthy of public recognition at the hands of the association, as representing the medical public, but they had struck a medal which would do credit to the asso- ciation in anticipation of future deeds of heroism and devotion to the welfare of their fellow beings. (Ap- plause.) The annual report, which was adapted, con- tained the following resolution :—" That a gold medal be presented to Mr II. N. Davies, silver medals to Mr Washington David, Mr Edgar Dukes, and Mr Edmund S. Davies, and bronze medals to Mr Francis II. Thomp- son, Mr C. J. Jones, Mr J. W. Parry, Mr Rees Hop- kins, Dr. E. Lloyd, and Mr Ivor A. Lewis, together with an expression of warm approbation of their con- duct engrossed on vellum." The medals were presented at the second general meeting of the association held on Wednesday.
