Hazeltine Post of the American Legion of Belfast has compiled a list of the boys of Waldo County who died or were killed during tile recent war. The list appears complete below with one or two possible exceptions, and unless advising to the contrary the names con tained in this list will be placed on the Memorial Tablet. There are yet several towns w;hich have not replied to the letters sent to the Town Clerks asking for the names of the boys of the town who lost their lives. It is as sumed that there were no boys from these towns. There is a doubt concerning the right of some of the names on this list being placed on the Tablet, but before the Tab let is cast these cases will be investigat ed and if necessary corrected. It would be the regret of everyone to have any name omitted from this Tablet, which sjiould be placed upon it, and everyone in the county should feel him self responsible to have this list correct. If' there are yet those whose names should appear on the Tablet, they should be reported at once to the committee in charge of this work. Unless further names are received within the next two weeks the Tablet will be ordered with the names as they ap pear below. The names will be placed in alphabetical order on the Table with the I towns of the county omitted. The list corrected to date is as follows: Belfast—Herbert H. Collins, Lewis Chesley Hatch, Frank D.

STEAMSHIP AGENTS MEET IN CON FERENCE AT BOSTON A conference of the agents of the East ern Steamship Lines was held in Boston last week on board the steatnsbip Cam den at India wharf. Nearly every agent of the various lines including the super intendents were present. The forenoon session was devoted en tirely to traffic matters, and at lunch a very interesting talk was given by Presi dent Calvin Austin, followed by other officials. J. A. Coates, the Vice Presi dent from New York, discussed many matters relative to handling freight traf fic. Nearly all of the other officials were present, and at the close of the meeting it was the consensus of opinion that this occasion was of material benefit to all and was adjourned to meet later at some central point, such sb Rockland. The meeting was arranged by Mr. A. B. Sides, assistant to the president. The Belfast Agency was represented by Geo. I E. Dunton. THE 80th LEGISLATURE. J This assembly finished its labors last Sunday morning at about three o’clock. Governor Baxter vetoed fourteen meas ures an1 eleven of these vetoes were sus tained by the Legislature while three were overruled by a two-thirds vote of the House and Senate. The net result was that the Governor’s vetoes saved the State an expenditure of $375 644 and of this amount $310,000 would have been fix ed charges. We think a very large ma jority of the tax payers of Maine will say, “Well done. Governor Baxter.” The Legislature vetoed Governor Bax ter’s Katahdin project and his scheme for the acquisition of Maine waterpow ers. To this we think the people respond amen, very fervently. The total appropriations made by the Legislature are $737,896 33, less than the estimated expenditures made by the Bud get Committee. These figures show that the Legislature, as well as the Governor, had periodical impulses toward economy, the appropriation bills make possible a State tax rate of five and one half mills tor the lirst period and six mills for the ye” ending June 30, 1923. The rate fot ,m„as seven and one-half mills, and tor 1J20, was seven and one-quarter mills. In considering the tax rate as fixed by the Legislature it will interest our read ers to know that one mill each year is to be used fcr the purpose of meeting War Loans as required by law and another mill is set apart for the High way Mill Tax, therefore the total tax rate to cover all State expenses and the School fund Tax will be three and one half mills for the first period and four I mills for the second. The Legislature was in session 14 weeks, which is the av erage length in recent years. It was a good working body of men, and is entitled to more credit for economy than is evi denced by the figures we have given. A great many requests for money came be for® th® Legislature which do not appear in the Budget. The committees to which these requests were referred, after a pa tient; hearing, reported “ought not to pass and that was the end of them. It would be interesting to read a list of these and to know how much State money was saved by turning them down. CHARLES D. LUCE Charles D. Luce died Friday afternoon, April 8th, at the home of his son, William L. Luce, corner of Court and Elm streets. With Mrs. Luce he came here several months ago from Portland to make their home with their son. He had been in failing health for several years and was for a short time in the Waldo County Hospital for medical treatment.

Mr. Luce was born in Searsmont, Sept. 13, 1855, the son of David P. and Elizabeth (Young) Luce. A prayer service was held Friday evening at his late home with Rev. C. W. Martin of the Methodist church officiating.
