The monthly meeting of the Royal
Society of Tasmania was held at the
society's room on Monday evening. The
Bishop of Tasmania, Dr. Mercer, occupied
the chair.
On display were items fro the collection of Meiseonier's artists'
engravings which were left to the Art Gallery by the
late Mr. C. J. Barclay, and some Japanese
paintings and embroidery work
brought from Japan by Mrs. Hocken
and were greatly admired.
It was a most valuable
gift; not only were they splendid
engravings themselves, but the collection
was one of the most valuable gifts of art
ever presented to their institution.The Chairman passed on his condolences in relation to the death of the late Mr. CJ Barclay, who bequeathed such a precious gift and who was a long term member of the Council of the Society.
Mr. E. M. Johnston further elucidated
his paper read at last meeting on "Observations
regarding some economic aspects
of the Eisenach social equality problem."
The discussion was further adjourned
till next meeting of the society.
Dr. Hocken addressed an interesting address on the subject of "Japan: Its people and industries."
Mr.H.C Kingsmill, M.A, asked that his paper dealing with the proposed scheme of the Federal Meteorological Service should be placed in the hands of the council to be discussed at a future meeting of the society.
