A PLEASING INCIDENT.
MAYOR OF WOODVILLE EULOGISED.
At this morning’s meeting of the Woodville County Council, the chairman alluded to the wedding of His Worship the Mayor which is, to take place next week. He said that for many years Mr Horne had occupied the highest position which it was in the power of the Woodville citizens to give. The Borough and County were intimately connected in working for the good of the district, and it was very much to the credit of the Mayor that, during his lengthy term of ofﬁce, there had not been the slightest jealousy or dissension between the two local bodies. His Worship had always smoothed down any little difﬁculties which arose, and the harmonious relations which existed between Borough and County, while of the greatest value to the district, were also a tribute to the many estimable qualities of Mr Horne. He moved that the Council convey its felicitations to His Worship upon this happy occasion, and said that it gave him extra pleasure in moving such a resolution, when he remembered that the father of the bride had not only been the chairman of the County under whom he joined the Council, but that gentleman had also been one of the founders of the County, and it was probably only those who had been councillors who could appreciate how wisely the founders of the County had done their work.
Cr Peebles seconded the motion, which was carried by acclamation.
