Abstract

The monthly meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania was held at
the Museum on Tuesday, May 11. His Excellency the Governor Sir
R. G. C. Hamilton, K.C.B., LL.D., presided. There was a good
attendance of Fellows.
His Excellency expressed his regret at being absent from the last
meeting. This was the first time he had been with them since the late
Science Congress had met, and he congratulated them upon the
success which had attended their labours in this respect. This was,
he was sure, largely due to the exertions of Mr. A. Morton, the
General Secretary, who had been indefatigable in his efforts to make
the affair a success. Includes, Science Congress
Ardea pacifica,
Herodias alba ,
Erismatura australis (first time recorded in Tasmania) ,
Australian Coot ,
Discussion on Export of Apples , - Mr. C. H. Grant, with reference to Mr. Shoobridge's paper upon
the export of apples to Europe, said that the author of the paper had
dealt with the question in a very able manner, although it was rather
deficient in the details relating to the cultivation of fruit, which,
however, might possibly relate more to the gardening industry
than to the Royal Society.
