City Inspector of * Weights - Measures Asks More Salary Increase In the number of groceries, pumping stations and other business establishments using scales from 86 in October 1923 to a total of 208 at the present time, was the reason given Friday afternoon by C.

The, matter was taken under advisement. “When I started with the city there were only 86 places in which scales had to be inspected. I agreed to work for $50 a month, furnishing my own car. Now there are lls groceries with one    to four scales, and 90 pumping    stations with one to four pumps each, it is impossible for me to reach ell of them each month. You have other inspectors, and when I heard it read In the minutes that the sanitary inspector is getting $150 a month I felt badly. I’m glad the man got It and hope he keeps it but I want more money myself, gentlemen,” said Mr. Cheshire. “We’re only getting    $25 a month,” rejoined Commissioner Ferguson, jovially. "Well, I voted for Coombes’ amendment to raise your salaries and that of the mayor.    But the majority didn’t see it that way,” replied Mr. Cheshire. “And, too, if I were thinking of running for office I’d first f:a4 out how much it paid and if didn’t want to work for that am^wit I wouldn’t run,” he added and Was assured by I words and smiles of Mayor Hayden that his petition would be carefully considered. /WWW' MONDAY IS DOUBLE SM GREEN STAMP DAY On every CASH purchase made in our store Monday, we will give DOUBLE the usual number of “S&II” Green Discount Stamps.
