Abstract

The monthly evening meeting of the members of the Royal Society
of Tasmania was last held on Monday, September 7th, in the Art
Gallery of the Museum. A lecture on " The Primary Law of Value or
Price," by Mr. R. M. Johnston, E.L.S., Government Statistician, was
given.
Mr. Bernard Shaw presided, and among those present were :—The
Treasurer (Hon. P. 0. Fysh), Messrs. F. W. Piesse, M.L.C., N. B.
Lewis, M.H.A, Henry Dobson, M.H.A, Rev. J. B. W. Woollnough,
M.H.A., etc. A vote of thanks to Mr. Johnston was then passed, and the
Chairman, in moving it, expressed regret on behalf of the Society
for the cause which had led to the absence of the Governor. He also
referred to the recent visit of Mr. Wragge, and the marvellously
accurate forecasts of the weather which that gentleman had recently
given.
