Virginia and the Carolinas, for his services in securing for the Association the usual rate of one and one-third fare from roads other than the Chesapeake and Ohio.

Your committee deem themselves fortunate in having secured the services of the distinguished gentlemen, whose names appear upon your program, to deliver addresses and read papers at this meeting. They will speak for themselves and need no eulogy at the hands of the committee.

Three members of this committee are now to be retired and others elected in their places. The terms of Messrs. B. B. Munford and R. B. Davis, the latter of whom was elected to fill the unexpired term of the late W. P. McRae, will expire by limitation with this meeting, and their successors are to be elected for the term of three years; and a vacancy having been caused by the resignation of Mr. John Stewart Bryan, who has served upon the committee most efficiently for two years, his successor is to be elected for the term of one year.

Your committee are unwilling to close this report without expressing their high appreciation of the valuable assistance rendered to them by your accomplished and faithful secretary and treasurer, Mr. Eugene C. Massie, in making their arrangements for this meeting. These services have been of great value to your committee and have been rendered in such a cheerful and accommodating spirit that they deserve, as they have received, thanks of the committee, also of the Association.

RICHARD B. DAVIS, For the Executive Committee.
