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.
