THE MAYORALTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 10 November 1846
THE MAYORALTY. THE question of the Mayoralty was de- cided yesterday, and, as will be seen from the report which appears elsewhere, the civic mantle has fallen upon Mr. Councillor Moor. There is no disputing about tastes, else we might be disposed to quarrel with the Worshipful gentleman's supporters for lowering themselves to the grade of a worthless ' bauchles' to be worn, or kick- ed aside as Mr. Moor's pleasure or con- venience dictates. They have made their choice, and they ave surely the best judges of their owu value. As between the two candidates proposed,- Messrs. Moor and Palmer, we can have no perso- nal regret that the choice has fallen upon the former ; for though we willingly con- cede jto Mr. Palmer uprightness of principle, and honesty of pin pose in pub- lic matters;-qualifications with which his opponent has at best but a^bowingac- quaintance,-his crotchetty notions, and stubborn.- addiction to out-of-the-way theories, render him any ' thing but a useful Chief Magi...
