    The annual dinner of the Royal Institute of British Architects was held at Guildhall on Thursday night. SIR BANISTER FLETCHER, the President, was in the chair.
    Proposing a toast of "The Royal Institute of of British Architects," SIR ERNEST WILD said that the Institute had right faithfully deserved the Royal Charter which was granted to them in 1837, for they had advanced the art of architecture.
    Responding, SIR BANISTER FLETCHER said that within a few years of its centenary the Institute was recognized as the arbiter of architecture throughout the British Empire. The architect of today had to be ready for all emergencies and invulnerable at all points; he must not only be an expert planner, but he was expected to know about the wayward ways of water, the eccentricities of electricity, the intricacies of plumbing, and the possibilities of gas, besides proper and judicious use of building materials. They must congratulate St Paul's Cathedral authorities and The Times on the completion of their work in the preservation of the building, although they must not forget the necessity which still existed for protecting the foundations.
    Replying to the toastof "The Lord Mayor and the Corporation of the City of London," proposed by SIR HERBERT BAKER, the LORD MAYOR said that his personal opinion of the bridges controversy was that it was not necessary to have additional bridges in the city. What was necessary was to get rid of the traffic that went over the bridges.
    MR JUSTICE SWIFT responded to the toast of "Our Guests," proposed by MR SYDNEY D KITSON (hon. secretary of the institute).
    Others present were:-
    Lady Fletcher, the Lady Mayoress, Lord Crawford and Balcarres, Lord and Lady Haddo, Lord Carson, Lord Desborough, Lord Danesfort, Lord Riddell, Lord Lee of Fareham, Lord Sumner, the High Commissioner of India, Lady Baker, Sir Frederic Kenyon, Sir Malcolm McIlwraith, Sir William Llewellyn, PRN, Major General Sir Fabian Ware, Sir Henry Tanner, Sir Gregory Foster, Sir John and Lady [Stavridi], Sir Adrian and Lady Pollock, Sir Josiah Stamp, Lieutenant General J Talbot Hobbs, Sir John Rose Bradford, Sir Hugh Allen, Sir Henry Wood, Sir George and Lady Fowler, Sir George and Lady Washington Browne, and the Dean of St Paul's.
