Abstract

The monthly evening meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania
was held on Tuesday, September 13th. The President, His Excellency
Sir R. G. C. Hamilton, K.C.B., LL.D., presided.
Mr. R. M. Johnston, F.L.S., in commencing the reading of a paper
entitled, " What are the conditions which determine the just and
equitable representation of the people ? " said that instead of his paper
being based on theory, having had much to do with the question of
the representation of the people, he felt that he could give some information
and advice. Also, he thought, the difficulties which presented
themselves to his mind from time to time might be of service to those
who had to deal with the question. To secure a just and equitable
representation of the people in Parliament was a matter which had
at all times engaged the attention of thoughtful, practical legislators,
and great thinkers. The paper was listened to very attentively, and at
the conclusion the Hons. J. W. Agnew, N. J. Brown, A. J. Ogilvy, and
A. J. Taylor replied.
