War relic train, No. 4, reached Belfast
Tuesday evening and was opened for gen
eral inspection after the program for the j
Victory Liberty Loan had been carried
out as follows, under the direction of
Fred A. Jackson of Plymouth, Mass , in
charge of the train: Address by Mayor
C. W. Wescott of Belfast, Mr. Jackson,
Sergt. C. M. Weiner, of Chatteau Thierry
fame, Ensign J. P. White of the U. S. :
N. and patriotic songs by the public
schools led by Mrs. E. S. Pitcher. All
the addresses were interesting and dealt .
largely with the loan from the individ- j
ual’s standpoint. Mayor Wescott re
ferred to the presence of Frank L. Whit
ney, one of our own boys to receive a
citation which he read.

The war relics were all that could be
thought of in American, French, English
an1 German machines, ammunition both
on battlefields, in the air and on the sea.
The helmets, gas masks, breastplates,
etc., for personal protection were very
interesting. Specimens of camouflage,
one the F’rench 75, which did the busi
ness for the Allies, were on the guns as
f used at the front. It was a wonderful ob
ject lesson particularly for the schools,
present in a body. The factories and
many other places of business closed
from 9 to 11 and crowds from the sur
rounding towns visited the train of sev
eral box and flat cars completely iilled
with these specimens which have already
been carried 1,500 miles and exhibited to
ovei 50,000 people.
Of its quota of 1193,500 Belfast ha**
raised $179,050, and the committees, both
men and women, are still working en
thusiastically. The helmets to be award
ed for the best work are on exhibition at
the City National Bank. Of the towns
to reach their quotas are Brooks, Sears
mont, Morrill, Thorndike, Jackson, Knox,
Swanville, Searsport, Liberty.
Sergt. S. J. Linits of Boston, one of
the men from over seas with the train
was a personal friend of one of Belfast’s
heroes, Lieut. Frank Durham Hazeltine,
and stood near him when he fell and says
he was killed instantly from wounds in
tire heart and lungs. They were holding
the Huns back at Mouilly and Lieut
Hazeltine was doing his duty cheerfully
as he always did and died like a loyal
American with his face to the foe. He
was a general favorite, thoughtful, kind
hearted and willing to do his duty. “He
would go through hell if duty called and
never weaken.” This was also his at
titude when not in action. He »rarely
took a day oil. He would spend money
more freely on men who needed it than
he did for his own comfort. The Sergt.
related one instance when Lieut. Hazel
tine called upon a private for some duty
and the boy replied that he would try,
but felt sick and weak; that his feet were
wet and he could not find dry socks.
Lieut. Hazeltine disappeared and in a few
moments returned with four pair of
socks; and otherwise cared for the sick
boy. This was only a sample of what he
was constantly doing. Lieut. Hazeltine
and Sergt. Linits were gassed at the
same time and Linits still suffers from
its effects. He was also wounded in the
lower jaw with a piece of shrapnel and
lost all of his lower front teeth and a
section of his jaw. He requested The
Journal to say that too much praise
could not be given Lieut. Hazeltine for
he was one of the best and most loyal
boys to give their lives willingly for their
country. Sergt. Linits said: “We all
loved him, his ideals were high and he
lived up to them. We will all revere his
memory.” It is for boys like these we
are asked to subscribe to the Victory
Loan to finish our part of the war work.
ill explanation or trie announced in
creases in telephone rates, Manager Spear
“The reason for the changes in rates is
obvious. The Company must get in
creased revenue in order to meet in
creased costs. Practically all of these
increased costs are represented by wage
increases. The Company’s only sources
of revenue are the payments made by its
patrons. It asks them only for such addi
tional revenue as is necessary to meet
existing conditions, and it has endeavored
to apply these increases equitably to all
classes of service.
“These changes, as far as liiey apply
in the Belfast, Searsport, Dark Harbor
and Monroe Exchanges, may he briefly
summarized as follows:
“Business subscribers increased 50 cents
per month.
“Residence subscribers increased 25
cents per month.
“Extension sets increased 25 cents per
“At certain summer resorts yvliere the
equipment required to give service during
a small part of the year is necessarily
idle and unproductive for the rest of the
year, subscribers who get service during
any part of the period between July 1st
and September 80th will have to contract
fora minimum period of seven months.
A moment’s reflection will show the
reasonableness of this requirement in or
der tiiat a fair return may be earne-.: on
the necessary investment
‘The change in tile mileage charge to
subscribers whose telephones ar- located
beyond prescribed central office a~eas
simply standardizes our mileage rat - lo
that of the rest of the: country, and puts
it on practically tile basis of some years
ago. Many rural line subscribers are go
ing to t>e benefited by the fact tiiat m.ie
age computations will be made on an air
line rather than a pole-line basis.
“The telephone organization is practi
cally rlie last one to come forward and
ask for increased revenue to enable it o
meet these increased costs. We yvou.d
have had lo do so long ago were it not ici
the fact tiiat, in the early day s of thj
war, oui officials advised a policy of econ
omy and conservation which every em
ployee of the company has since leiigi
ousiy followed until the general feeling
was that further ellorts in this direction
would seriously impair the service to the
public Therefore, as the government
must meet these increased costs of opera
tion, il has asked us to obtain from the
service such additional revenue as will
enable it to do so.’’
