HALL OF THE FACULTY, 122 W. Fayette St.

BALTIMORE, MD., March 31, 1885. The President, Dr. Thomas S. Latimer, called the Faculty to order and stated the business to be considered, namely: the consideration of charges against certain members, and the expediency of postponing the regular annual meeting

Upon being called by the President to answer whether or not charges had been placed in his hands, Dr. G. Lane Taneyhill, the Recording Secretary, responded affirmatively, and placed the charges and proofs upon the desk of the President, simultaneously moving that they be referred, as per constitutional instruction, to the Ethics Committee. The motion being seconded, the President

ruled that the charges must be read in open convention before they could be properly referred to the Ethics Committee. From this decision Dr. J. E. Michael appealed, which appeal having been seconded, a long debate ensued regarding precedents, necessity of "reading out”' the names at this meeting, and what actually constituted "charges," as contemplated by the constitution.

Upon vote the decision of the Chair was sustained, and the President ordered the charges and names of members charged to be read by the Secretary ; they were as follows, namely: Charges of conduct unworthy of a member of the Faculty against James A. Steuart, M.D., and of charges of unprofessional conduct against J. D. Fiske, M.D., Samuel W. Seldner, M.D., Isaac N. Dickson, M. D., and W. H. H. Campbell, M.D.

On motion, the charges in each case were referred to the Ethics Committee.

Regarding the desire to postpone the business of the annual meeting, the following resolution was offered by Dr. John Morris :

Resolved, That it is the wish of this meeting that when the Faculty meets in annual session on April 28, it shall adjourn without the transaction of business from that day until Tuesday May 12, so that the members attending the American Medical Association may have an opportunity to participate in the deliberations.

The resolution was seconded, and the following amendment, offered by Dr. Joseph T. Smith, was accepted by the mover of the resolution, viz: that in the notices of the meeting the country members be informed of the anticipated postponement.

After considerable debate and explanations of the effect of such procedure, a motion to table the resolution was rejected, and the resolution as amended was passed. Dr. E. F. Cordell gave notice in writing that at a future meeting he would offer an amendment to Article IX of the constitution, title “Meetings,” amend to read as follows:

The annual meetings of the Faculty shall be held in the city of Baltimore on the fourth Tuesday in April, or at such other date as the Executive Committee, with the concurrence of the President, shall appoint. A semi-annual meeting may be held at such time and place as the Executive Committee may designate.

There being no further business, the Faculty, on motion, adjourned.
