PHARMACEUTICAL SOCIETY, 'dispels the cloud which has hitherto hung over the Chemists and Druggists of Great Britain.
The Report of the Council (page 741, No. 12) gives general information respecting the progress of the Society during the year comprised in this volume. The success which has attended the School of Pharmacy is one of the most important features in the Institution, and it is encouraging to observe, that the disposition to introduce a system of education for the Pharmaceutical Chemists, is not confined to the metropolis, but is extending itself throughout the country.
With the exception of a few items which are promised shortly, nearly all the subscriptions of Members and Associates have been received. Only four Members have seceded from the Society by resignation, and the number whose names are erased from the list, amounts to about twenty, arising from deaths or retirement from business. Several Members and Associates have lately been admitted, and we may therefore consider our numbers about the same as at the last publication of the list. Much, if any, increase was not to be expected during the first year in which the present regulations respecting admission came into operation.
The election of Country Members on the Council has been proposed as a means of cementing the union of our body and giving a more completely representative character to the Society. It is worthy of remark however, that all the Country Candidates were proposed by Members residing in London ; of seven who were proposed, only five consented to serve, and of these only two were elected. If the Country Members had generally supported the five Country candidates, their election would have been inevitable, and we may infer from the result of the ballot, that the majority have confidence in their London representatives.
