The magistrates usually attendant on the St.
Kilda Bench held a meeting yesterday morning
in the town hall to consider as to who should act
as chairman of the bench. Mr: H. Tullett presided,
and there were present Messrs. James Wilson,
W. Simpson, J. D. Moore, E. Gill, A. Balcombe,
John Oldham, and Drs. Patterson and Rankin.
The chairman moved that Mr. John Oldham, the
mayor of the borough, be chairman of the bench
during his term of office. Mr. James Wilson
seconded. Again this an amendment was moved
Dr Patterson, and seconded by Mr. Moore,
to the effect that at each meeting of the Court
of Petty Sessions the senior magistrate present
shouId act as chairman of the bench, and it was
carried. We must express our regret at this
decision. It is usual to give this honour to the
mayor for the time being, and we do not think
any difference of opinion on municipal matters
should be allowed to interfere with this arrange-
ment. Fight fairly gentlemen, but do not be
spiteful.
