NOTES AND FRAGMENTS.
Political Science Quarterly for December has a review of Ham-
ilton's Colonial Mobile by Mr. Bugbee.
Mr. W. F. McCaleb, fellow in history at the University of Chi-
cago for the third year, is busy writing a book in which he hopes to
throw new light on that still- obscure and 'perplexing episode, the
Burr Conspiracy.
'Mr. Eugene C. Barker has been appointed tutor in history in the
University and Mr. E. W. Winkler fellow. 'The appointments are
both well deserved. IMr. Barker is now 'doing special work on the
Campaign of 1836, and Mr. Winkler is engaged on the history of
the Cherokee Indians of Texas.
Mr. W. R. Smith, who went from the University of Texas to Col-
umbia on a fellowship in history at the beginning of the session
1898-1899, is still at the latter. He is making a special study of
the colonial history of South Carolina, and has spent several months
in the cities of Columbia and Charleston gathering materials for a
thesis.
Mr. William Corner, who for two years was one of the vice-presi-
dents of the Association, and who deserves no little of the credit for
its success, is lecturing in England on American and Mexican In-
dians. His lecture has been given before the Anthropological Insti-
tute of Great Britain and Ireland, Hanover Square, London, and
the Cambridge Antiquarian Society, Cambridge, and has been well
received. Mr. Corner is pleasantly remembered by those with whom
he has worked in the interests of historical science in 'Texas, and
their good wishes follow him.
