Woothakata Shire Council.
.--The first'rneeting of the Woothak- ata'Shire Council went along as or- derly as a wedding, which is a some- what unique experience-for Mareeba gatherings. The appointment of Cr. James Harris as chairman was a popu- lar decision, and from the methods shown in handling one or tw:o intri- cate points with the possibilty of gin- ger behind them, the Chairman gave evidence of being the right man in the right place. Cr. Clacherty, was in j dined to act the canny Scot in curtail
inp àllowanccs and salaries, .while Cr. Kilpatrick adopted a-policy of liberal pay for good work. The newly ap , pointed councillors showed fair form
and good sense in any suggestion or decision, and the ink pot was never i called into requisition as a missile,
though a vote at the next meeting for I a water-bag and mug will be carried j unanimously.
