I In a lightly attended city meeting last night, the voters of Barre decided to abolish the long-established policy of ' nominal salary and fee compensation for the" city clerk and treasurer and to substitute therefore a straight salary of $2,500, the city to pay whatever cler ical assistance may be necessary. The city heretofore has been paying $tMH salary and allowing an indeterminate compensation in fees, the holder of the office to pay hi. ovyn assistants. The action lasx night in reversing the pol icy was not carried without some ob jection when H came to viva voce vote although nothing was said in opposi tion during the discussion. Other actions included the voting of 30 centa an hour to the aldermen, 40 cents an hour to the auditors and $5 a day to the assessors; also fc),000 to the Barre City hospital under the same conditions as last year. ' , , After James Mackay had been elect ed chairman of the meeting, William Barclay made a few remarks and then put in a motion that the clerk and treasurer be placed on a $2,500 sal ary if he will agree to turn all the. fees heretofore allowed the official into the city treasury, the speaker adding that he understood the present encum bent, James Smart, was favorable to the proposition. J. S. McDonald second ed the motion. As the text of the motion was not definite regarding the matter of hir ing assistants in the clerk's office, Wal- " dron Shield moved that the salary of $2,500 shall not' include pay for the office held; and both MesHrs. Barclay aijd McDonald aecrptcd the amend- ' ment. H. L. Campbell wanted to know who won, (I have the authority to hire the assistants in the clerk's office, and James Mackay responded by saying that heretofore the heads of the depart ments have Wen in the habit of en- ' gaging their own assistants. Mayor Langlej said the straight salary prop osition for the clerk and treasurer wss more or less a surprise' to Uie city council and. therefore, no policy regard-.. ing the hiring of assistant, in the clerk's office had been considered. W. A. Drew said that the citizen. ' were very much in the dark a to th amount of money the city clerk and treasurer has been receiving in fees, so that they could nt act intelligent! as to the fixing of alary and payment to assistants. That ended the disi'ussion and when the motion was put for a straight .al ary of $2,500, fees of both offices to ha turned into the city treasury and oflice help to be paid by the city, the chair man was in doubt as to the majority and called for a second viva voce vote. On the second response he declared the motion cafried and wa not disputed. , Then, in quick succession, the alder men were voted .30 cents an hour for actual time spent, the auditor. 40 cent. J i . -- - j m an nour ana me assessors so a aav, ins former two motion, being marie by Mayor Langley and the third by Alder man Shield. Speaking on the next article in ths warnrhg, Charles H. Wishart said h believed the city owed afi obligation to the City hospital when that institution I well conducted and he, therefore.' moved that the sum of $.1,000 be voted this year for the hospital, under ths same conditions, as last year, namely, that the hospital furnish care, board and niifsitifn for surh persons as may be receiving aid from the city and who may be designated for treatment at the,hospital by the overseer of the poor or the charity committee. There was no opposition to the motion, which prevailed on a viva voce vote, after which the hall was turned over to the participants in a local talent play, th plavers in which had been spectator of the' meeting.
