WELLINGTON, October 12. At the Petone Borough Council meeting last evening, Mrs Raby, who was recently elected representative for one of the warda in the borough, complained of the treatment she had received at the hands of some of the male members at last meeting of the Council. She said that two of them had attempted to drive her out of the chamber by smoking, and had also brutally dragged her from the door. One of the councillors complained of the language used by Mrs Raby, who replied that the councillors were no better than a lot of pigs. The Mayor said that Mrs Raby had to some extent brought the trouble on herself, and other councillors denied that ehe was roughly pushed from the door.
