Abstract

At a meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania on Monday, October
21, discussion was resumed upon Mr. R. M. Johnston's paper on "The
primary law of value or price," which was read at the previous
meeting of the Society. The Hon. Sir James Wilson Agnew presided,
and there was a good attendance of ladies and gentlemen, among
whom were the Hon. P. O. Fysh, Mr. Justice Dodds, Hon. Adye
Douglas, M.L.O.; Bishop Montgomery, and Hon. C. H. Grant, M.L.C.. The President, in opening the meeting, mentioned that an effort
Was being made to secure Mrs. Meredith's watercolour drawings of
Tasmanian fish, flowers, shells, etc., and to present them to the Society.
At an adjourned meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania on
Monday, October 28th, Sir James Wilson Agnew, K.C.M.G., M.D.,
M.E.C. (Vice-President) occupied the chair, and there was a good
attendance of both ladies and gentlemen. The meeting had been
adjourned until this evening to further discuss Mr. R. M. Johnston's
Paper on " The Primary Law of Value or Price." Discussion
of Mr. Johnston's paper was resumed. The death of Mrs Charles Meredith was noted. Mrs. Meredith has been a
distinguished resident of Tasmania and a hon. member of this Society for many years. She died to-day in Melbourne. You will
recollect that the last time we met I brought under your notice some
of her works which it is very desirable should be secured for the
Society. A letter was read from Mr Clement L. Wragge, Chief Weather Bureau, Brisbane about the Government of Tasmania not voting for the funds necessary for maintenance of the meteorological service of Tasmania and the proposition to hand over the local direction of the service to the Royal Society. A hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Johnston was passed on the motion of
the Hon. P. 0. Fysh.
