The Practical Hand-book to the Bills of Exchange Act, 1882,

By ROBERT W. BARNETT,

(Associate of the Institute of Bankers,)

TO WHICH IS ANNEXED A REPRINT OF THE ACT.

By the codification of the law relating to Bills of Exchange, Cheques, and Promissory Notes, the position of those dealing with them has been greatly simplified. The uncertainties of case law and custom, and the conflict of legal opinion, have been, as regards most points of importance, determined by direct enactment, and on such points the Act itself is now the surest guide. This hand-book is designed to afford a ready and certain means of ascertaining whether any question has been dealt with by the Act, and of referring at once to all the clauses relating to it.

Members and others are invited to submit to the Council, for their approval, papers on any subjects of general interest to the Profession, with a view to such papers being read at one of the Ordinary Meetings of the Institute.

To enable the Council to carry into effect one of the primary objects of the Institute, viz., the discussion of matters of interest to the Profession, they invite Fellows and others to acquaint them, through the Secretary, with any Questions on points of practical interest which may from time to time arise, so that, should it be deemed advisable, due notice being given, such questions may be fully discussed at one of the Ordinary Meetings of the Institute, or answered through the Journal as the Council may determine.

The Reference Library, consisting of Works on Banking, Commerce, Finance and Political Economy, now contains above one hundred and fifty volumes of standard works, and the Council desire to intimate to Members and others that they will be glad to receive donations of books on the above subjects for addition to the Library.

If not out of print, members may obtain a single copy of each of the back numbers of the Journal at the reduced price of 1s. each. A few volumes bound in morocco, can be obtained at 15s. each volume.

JUNE, 1884.

REPORT of the COUNCIL for the FINANCIAL YEAR ended 31st December, 1883, and for the Session 1883-84, to the 30th April last, presented at the SIXTH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING of the INSTITUTE OF BANKERS, held in the Theatre of the London Institution, Finsbury Circus, E.C., on the 21st May, 1884.

RICHARD B. MARTIN, Esq., M.P., President, in the Chair.

The circular convening the Meeting having been read, the following Report was then presented :

THE COUNCIL, in presenting their Fifth Annual Report, trust that the very satisfactory progress of the Institute, which it records, will be acceptable to the Members.

The Register of Members now contains the names of—

15 Life Fellows,

362 Fellows,

6 Life Associates,

515 Associates,

860 Members.

1,758

It will be noticed that while there has been a further considerable increase in the number of Fellows and Associates, the number of Ordinary Members again shows a decline, though not to the same extent as in former years. Though, however, the numerical strength of the Institute has slightly decreased, the total income from subscriptions, as will be seen from the subjoined figures, continues to advance.
