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.
