The final evening meeting of the 1903
session was held on 11th inst., Mr.
Bernard Shaw presiding. Owing to the
inclement weather the attendance was
limited. Among those present were:—
Bishop Mercer, Messrs. K. M. Johnston,
L. Rodway, C. B. Target, and A. O.
Green.The secretary referred to the work that
Mr. Johnston had done during his residence
in Tasmania. The secretary read
extracts from Professor Judd, the late
Sir Robert Hamilton, and the Rev.
Julian Tenison Woods, in which the
three named spoke in the highest praise
of Mr. Johnston's work on the geology of
Tasmania.In the absence of the author (Prof. E.
G, Hogg, M.A.) Mr. R. M. Johnston read the paper entitled "The glacial beds at
Port Cygnet." It was decided that discussion
on this paper should be taken at
a future meeting. Mr. R. M. Johnston submitted some interesting
notes on specimens of fossil
flora and a fossil fish, discovered at Tinder
Box Bay, and also some remarks on
some fossil shells (Spirifer triangularis). Mr. L. Rodway read two very carefully
prepared papers, dealing with some fungi
found occurring in Tasmania.
