JONES, Belfast, Maine. which have been made and be able to show something done, the other to bare ly skimp along with a little lower rate, ami merely keep body and soul together. 'I'nis has already been done too long for the best interests of the city and we are experiencing the inevitable result of the same. It is believed the people will be better satisfied in the end to carry the city along in a fairly proper way with safety from further indebtedness, rather than to merely get by or to run behind. The increase for schools is due to the extent of $2133 this year to an average increase of approximately $100 in the s ilary of each teacher. It may be a question as to whether this full increase was wise this year, or should have been extended over two years, but it was recommended by the school committee who are in closer touch with the pulse of the school alfairs, and the city govern ment gave deference to their judgment. The increase applies to only 2-3 of the present year. Starting as it does in September the full increase as granted will obtain in 1920, which w'ill call for a little over 51,000 further additional for that year. With the higher salaries for our teachers and with the difference in cost of living, Belfast should compare favorably with other cities in the salaries paid and the best results possible should be expected from our school department. It will be further noted that the present members of the city government are among the heaviest tax payers of the city and voted in accordance with their best judgment as they would in handling their own business, and for a tax rate which would perhaps apply to them more strenously than to a majority of the peo ple of the city. Belfast should be much larger than it, is and one of the requisites to bring that about certainly is to make it increasingly attractive, not only to our local people but to our summer visitors. If $1.50 can be obtained in business for $1.00 expend- ■ ed, it is good judgment to make the ex penditure; the same should apply to a city. The above analysis is given in full be cause we h lieve the tax payers of the city should have full knowledge of all the processes which enter into the decis ions of the. City government.
