Abstract

The usual monthly meeting of the members of the Royal Society was
held at the Museum on Monday, May 7, when the chair was occupied
by the Hon. C. H. Grant, M.L.C.
Apologies were read from His Excellency the Governor and Mr. J.
Barnard, vice-president, for non-attendance. The Secretary said it would
be interesting to know that it was just 53 years this week since Mr.
James Barnard, its senior vice-president, was elected to membership,
hb nomination being seconded by Sir John Franklin. With the exception
of the period when he was visiting England, Mr. Barnard had
seldom missed a meeting of the Council or the monthly gatherings
during his more than half century of membership. Mr. A. Mault read a paper on Antarctic Exploration. The Secretary (Mr. Morton) submitted a paper prepared by Mr.
George Hogben upon "Tasmanian Earthquakes of 1892," which was
read.
