Harrison and Bullock) only objecting that retrenchment in salaries was a necessity, and a warm discussion took place in which Or. St. Hill as convener of the committee fired all his oratorical ordnance in support of the Retrenchment report. Independent of this, both he and Cr. Parian were loud in their out-door conversation as to the cost of the work in comparison td the value of services rendered.
