Abstract

The monthly evening meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania was
held in the Art gallery on Monday, July 12th. Mr. T. Stephens, M. A.,
F.G.S., Vice-President, presided, and there was a good attendance.
Visitor-
W. G. Dauncsy, C.E., of Sydney, N.S.W.
New members-
Messrs. Wm. Cockburn Sharland and Edward Mulcahy, M.H.A.,
and George Elliott were elected Fellows of the Society.
The Chairman announced that the vacancy which had occurred in
the list of vice-presidents of the Society through the lamented death
of Mr. James Barnard, the oldest member of the Society, had been
filled by the election by the Council of Mr. R. M. Johnston. It was
not necessary to say much in regard to Mr. Johnston, who was one of
those men whose works spoke for them. The records of the Society
bore ample testimony to the unremitting and excellent services Mr.
Johnston had rendered the Society. He (the Chairman) thought the
Fellows would fully endorse the election.
Mr. Johnston briefly thanked the Council and Fellows for their
appreciation of him.
