Despite the inclemency of the weather, there was a fair attendance when the Mayor (Ald. M. J. Griffin) introduced the Minister to the gathering. Ald. Griffin referred in glowing terms to the work of the late Mr Kable had done for the city of Bathurst. He said he was a man who had always been thinking of the good of the city, and the gates that were to be opened that day, were a tangible recognition of his work from the citizens of Bathurst. The Minister, who was greeted with applause, said he had heard a great deal of the public spiritedness of the late Mr. Kable. and it was with much pleasure that he had been able to perform the opening ceremony. He added that Bathurst was noted for the number of men it had produced whose aim had always been for the betterment of the city, and who had made their mark in the business or political spheres of the State.
