The names of W. H. Tyndall, of Galveston, and Geo. E. King, of El Paso, were struck from the roll of membership. A testimonial in the application of J. J. Kane for superintendent of public buildings at Ft Worth was read, as follows:

Whereas we have been informed that our worthy friend and member of T. S. A. A. J. J. Kane has made application for the resident superintendent of construction of the United States gov't about to be erected here at Ft Worth be it

Reserved, that we, the T. S. A. A. hereby heartily endorse the application of Mr. J. J. Kane as honest, competent and trustworthy in every respect, and that we believe Mr. Kane to be an excellent choice for the position

Mr. Gill moved, seconded by Haggart, that the application be endorsed by the T. S. A. A.

Mr. Dickey thought that our effort would be useless with the department, unless the federal superintendent of public buildings would endorse the application.

Political influence would also go a long way in securing the position

Mr. Ulrich understood that there were other members of teh association equally interested in the appointment and that it would

hardly do for the association to make a choice to the dissatisfaction of other members.

Mr. Sanguinet thought that he might himself wish for the appointment to which Mr. Kane replied that he had already an understanding with the Dept. of Bldgs; that he had the place as good as secured.

Mr. Gill asked to be allowed to withdraw his motion as he was not aware that the other Fort Worth arch'ts were desirous of the position; he understood that the paper was simply an additional endorsement of an already appoint architect in chg.

Mr. Kane desired that the resolution be withdrawn, which the seconder, Mr. Haggart, agreed to.

The names of the newly elected were announced as follows: C. C. Diboll, Dallas, recommended by Albert Ulrich + Geo. W. Stewart. C. A. Gill, Dallas, recommended by Albert Ulrich + Geo. W. Stewart J. S. [Moud?], Dallas, recommended by Albert Ulrich + Geo. W. Stewart Paul Hellwig, Austin, recommended by S. P. Herbert and Jos. Wahrenberger Oscar Lynch, Ft Worth, honorary member, recommended by Geo.

Mr. Gordon asked how it was that the [?] name had been changed wherein he had nominated Mr. Messer, which Mr. Kane replied that association did not consider Mr. Gordon a member of the association, as he had been expelled at the last annual meeting as reference to the books would show + the secy would explain, so it was considered his [?] would not be in proper order, therefore another name was subsituted

Mr. Stewart announced that there was no proper reason for the same and that the charges were all founded and incorrect and that the member was still a member in good standing, unless the association as a body expelled him.

Mr. Wahrenberger said, the member (Mr. Gordon) was expelled outright at the last annual meeting of the association and would only have been reinstated with the consent of the executive committee

Mr. Gordon was surprised at this information; he had never been told that he was expelled; to the contrary he had received an announce of being fully paid up and was invited by the [secy?] to attend the annual convention and intimated to the secy that he would be present. He had receipts for paid up fees to date. He did not understand the circumstances
