S-OUR NEW MAYOR. Interesting Public Career. The recently-elected Mayor of Port Melbourne, Cr. T. Smith, has had an interesting career as a public man. He was a member of the South Mel bourne City Council in 1888, when there were 'only nine councillors.

Owing to illness, he resigned from the repre s...
