Excerpt from Journal of Social Science, 1878, Vol. 9

The Journal of Social Science has been irregular in its publication ever since it began in 1869; but in the nine years, nine successive numbers have appeared, besides three Extra Numbers, containing the Proceedings of the three Conferences of Charities, - at Detroit in May, 1875, and at Saratoga in September, 1876, and September, 1877. Hereafter it is the hope of the Editor to publish it regularly, and more frequently. This depends mainly upon the income of the Association from membership fees and other sources, from which the expenses of publication are paid.

In consequence of the financial depression in the country since 1874, this income has been too small to admit of frequent publication. To meet that and other necessary expenses, it has been necessary to rely upon sources which may be called extraordinary, and which may fail us at any time. The Association has no funded property ; its regular income is composed chiefly of annual payments from members,' which now amount to less than $1,800 per annum. The cost of publishing three numbers of the Journal (about 600 pages 8vo) is $1,000; the salary of a Secretary, office-rent, clerk-bire, expense of annual meetings, and incidentals amount to $2,000 more, in round numbers, or a total of $3,000. The Association has been in continued operation since 1865, and it is thought that the time has now come when it may confidently appeal to the general interest felt in Social Science throughout the country, for the purpose of establishing its finances upon a solid basis, by enlarging the list of members to 700 or 1,000. It is believed that an institution supported in this way, and relying on a widespread popular feeling of interest, will not only stand firmer, but will accomplish its educational object far better than if (as hitherto) it were supported by a few subscribers.

Membership is obtained by the payment of the annual sum of five dollars. This confers the right to take part In business meetings of the Association, and to vote in elections of officers, and entitles him to receive its publications free of expense. The publications consist chiefly of the Journal of Social Science, which includes, more especially, the proceedings and papers of the General Meetings.
