A special meeting of the Council of the University was held this afternoon; present —Dr Stuart (chancellor), Mr Justice Williams, Dr Burns, Messrs J. Roberts, R. L. Stanford, £. B. Cargill, G. G. Russell, and Dr Focken. The Chairman said that the business for which the meeting had been called was in connection with that goldfield of theirs near Barewood Run and the Museum Reserve, the object being to find out what should be done in the matter. At tho last meeting they had agreed to grant prospecting licenses, and so many applications had been sent in that no leas than thirty licenses had already been issued. He was getting alarmed at the number of applications that were coming in, and after consulting with Mr Roberts it was_ deemed advisable to call the present meeting and ask the Council’s solicitor (Mr F. R. Chapman) to attend for consultation and to advise them. It was resolved to discuss the matter in committee. It was resolved that no more prospecting licenses be issued, and that meantime Mr Pogson, lessee of the run, be communicated with, asking him to attend a meeting of tho Council to be held on Thursday next.
