Abstract

Mr. Bernard Shaw presided at the monthly meeting of the Royal
Society of Tasmania on Monday, September 21st, and there was a good
attendance. The subject for discussion was the West Coast routes,
introduced at the previous meeting by Mr. T. Stephens.
Mr. Robert Sticht, metallurgist, Mount Lyell ; Dr. E. T. MacGowan
and Mr. R. Fitzarthur Waller were elected. Also Major C. M. Officer,
F.G.S. (London), and Mr. W. H. Palmer, C.E., two visitors.
Mr. T. Stephens said : As the report of the second party despatched
to explore the country lying to the west of the Mount Field Range had
now been received he might, by way of postscript, add a few words to
the paper read at the last meeting. Much discussion as to the preferred routes to the West coast.
The reading of Mr. Rodway's paper on fungi was postponed, owing
to the lateness of the hour at which the above discussion closed.
The meeting then terminated with votes of thanks to Mr. Stephens,
Mr. Counsel, and the chairman.
