Mr. A. Bathgate moved the following resolution:—

That this Institute, having learned with regret that sheep are allowed to run upon the reserve at Mount Cook, and that the interesting native flora of that locality is consequently threatened with extinction, strongly urge on the Government the necessity for the immediate adoption of adequate measures to protect the reserve referred to from the depredations of stock and from injury by fire, and that the Government be asked to make and protect further reserves in that locality, including the country between the Tasman and Hooker Glaciers; and that a copy of this resolution be sent to the Hon. the Minister of Lands.

Mr. F. R. Chapman seconded and strongly supported the resolution, which was carried unanimously.
