Abstract

At the May meeting of the Society, some notes were read and a discussion took place as to the desirability of establishing time signals in the colony. In the opinion of that meeting further information was required on the subject, and a committee was appointed to make inquiry as to the size of gun necessary, the distance at which a report could be heard, and the amount of expense that would be incurred.
