Hon. Mr Mabee is .a big .man phy- sically, and good to "look at. He well built, a dark complexion1, dark unfouched as yet by grey, aud lias a strong kindly face. His voice js_ deep, clear and. resonant, and expressing thoughts which in- variably are worth hearing, it lends extra force to their delivery.

He is kindly, fair, stern in condemnation, but always ready to hear the complaint o! the humblest applicant for justice. He shows a dislike for red tape methods.

Tuesday night Civic Council the mayor was "not a little thunderstruck" on receiving a peti- tion addressed to the mayor and ald- ermen asking them to call a meeting for a certain purpose, and incident- to consider one or two civic mat- ters, is quite at variance with fact or logic. The mayor Tvas first apprised of the existence of the petition on Sunday and was evidently gratified. It made its first appearance at Monday night's meetin and by Tues- day night was too stale to get thun- derstruck over, besides you could not in a thousand years get Billy thun- derstruck over anything. Ii -is il- logical to assume that c-n Sunday he bottfrd up his facial expression for Tuesday's use, ergo the "thunder" is of Herald manufacture, The Mayor expressed his will and t-i wish to go into the. uestion of a railway crossing bridge at Courts St. -without looking up from his< file on an early date and you omit that "It's easy to be ready when you'rs -ro? cocksure side isn't here."

Chairman 'Mabee condemned such action on the- part of the C.P.B. drastically. counsel pleaded that to remove the tracks enormous expense and paralyze one side -o! the railroad yards. To this the chairman- re- sponded, uietly: "It isn't a matter of. how much it will cost you, Mr. nor of how "much actual harm your tracks are doing. It's a question of principle" and I would order those tracks up. if there wasn't one; person a crossing them." afterwards the C.P.B. a' bridge; consent.
