Gaynor asked for remarks on the cuts
in the budget made by the Roard of Al

There followed aome frank talk. in
which the Mayor was made to umler
istand that the aldermen had made pretty
much of a botch of their attempt to aava
money for the taxpayers. Borough 1'res
ldent Mlller said that. in ispite of the
protestations of the aldermen that they
had cut nothlng pertainlng to isalarles
except what had been provided for new
place-, they had actually cut off the ap?
proprlatlons for men who had been
worklng ln his offlce for a long time.
