Legislative Notes. At the hearing before the Governor and Council in Augusta last Friday afternoon Clarence Higgins said that he wished tb state to all parties interested that the appro priation for any and all of the State-aided in stitutions that were voted by the committee on appropriations would be passed in full and not discounted by Charities and Corrections, j The following Belfast institutions were repre i sented at this hearing: Children’s Aid boeiety. Representative H. C. Buzzell of Belfast outlined the needs of this institution, asking i $100 increase for salaries, making the appro priation $1,600 for each of the two years of j 1917 and 1918. Home for Aged Women. I Representative Buzzell also spoke for the | Old Ladies’ Home of Belfast, which asks an ! appropriation to tide them over temporary j | difficulties. It was established in 1894. Funds j 1 were limited and but few old ladies admitted. I ! They pay a fee of $200, if they can and some I can’t, the fees being raised by subscription. ! Six are now there. Two have died and several : are on the waiting list. Practically all have ; used up the entire value of the $200 fee. Miss Partridee stated that the Home had an $8,400 endowment fund well invested, bring- i ing about 5 per cent. The maintenance last year cost $1,447, and the deficit wafe $554 85. The matron has but $5 per week. Waldo County General Hospital. Mr. Buzzell said the Waldo General Hospital asked for a general appreciation of $2000 for each of the years 1917 and 1918, with a special appropriation of $3o00. The institution has a i $2C00 mortgage on its property and it costs ! yearly about $2000 more to run the hospital then is received from the patients. The pro perty needs repairs and the expense of running the plant is constantly on the increase. President Parker stated that the special $3000 was needed for a stable, which would ac ! commodate a piggery, t“ cost about $1000; an ; elevator to relieve '.he nurses and others from stair-climbing, to cost about $1500; and $500 for general repairs to the driveway. Mr. Parker said they had only $1000 endow ment fund, to be used for Palermo people. Superintendent Miss Valentine said they had in 1916 3846 paid days’ treatment, with about I 1300 free day's treatment and 84 days given by the student nurses going out. All patients were accepted, and if they could not pay all, the balance was charged to profit and loss. Patients do not pay enough to pay their cost Cost of maintenance is increasing and the re sults of the soliciting and gifts are not. Dr. Adelbert Millett said that all cases were taken except contagious, for which they had no conveniences. All physicians in good stand ing have had the same privileges as the staff and they can take their private patients there same as the staff. At Tuesday’s session of the House of Rep resentatives Buzzell of Belfast presented the following resolves: Resolve in favor of the Waldo County Gen eral hjspitai of Belfast appropriating $5,000 for 1917 and $2,000 for 1918 for maintenance.
