MINUTES OF PROCEEDINGS AT MEETINGS HELD BY THE ROYAL COMMISSION
TUESDAY, 11th OCTOBER 1881.
Mr. LONGMORE in the Chair;
Mr Anderson, Mr Levey
Mr Fincham , Mr Dixon
In moving the adoption of the minutes, Mr. Fincham called attention to the fact that the Chairman had not recorded his vote on the resolutions adopted. He gave notice of motion that at the next meeting of the Commission a fresh division take place, and the votes of all the members be recorded. Agreed to.
The minutes were then confirmed.
Mr Hall gave the following notice of motion:—That, in the event of any protest being entered by a member of the Commission upon a finding in any clause of the report such clause shall be open for additions and explanations before confirmation.
The following resolution was moved by Mr Levey, seconded by Mr. Fincham:—That immediately prior to the Kelly outbreak, and for some time previously, the administration of the police in the North-Eastern district was not satisfactory either as regards the number and distribution of the constabulary or the manner in which they were armed and mounted; and that a grave error was committed in abolishing the police station at Glenmore, and in reducing the strength of the stations at Stanley, Yackandandah, Tallangatta, Eldorado, and Beechworth
The Commissioners then proceeded to revise and make certain verbal amendments in the resolutions previously adopted. The historical sketch prepared by the Secretary was considered to page 11, and certain alterations made.
The Commission adjourned until the following morning, at Eleven a.m.
FRANCIS LONGMORE, Chairman.
