Election of Office-Bearers
Election of Office-Bearers.
The Chairman said that on former occasions it had been customary for the incoming committee to be nominated by the outgoing one, but some objection had been raised to this from time to time, and he had to intimate that now the election would be left entirely in the hands of the chamber. Members had been requested to send in nominations, but none had been received, still the election would be left to the chamber to nominate members now.
Mr Brown believed it was customary for one of the retiring committee to propose the new president, and he had therefore much pleasure in proposing that Mr Mackerras be president for the ensuing year. The manner in which he had fulfilled the duties of vice-president was the best guarantee that good work might be hoped for under his presidency.
Mr G. L. Denniston seconded the motion, which was carried unanimously.
On the motion of Mr Glendining, Mr G. L. Denniston was then elected vice-president.
After some discussion the following gentle-men were elected the committee for the ensuing year:—Messrs R. Glendining, R. H. Leary, E. B. Cargill, Andrew Maxwell, W. B. Boyd, George Bell, W. Dymock, Grant P. Farquhar, Robert Wilson, and J. M. Jones.
