TO THE EDITOR, Sir,—l see in to-night's Star that the finances of the City Council are at the usual low ebb, and yet in the face of this we read of certain salaries to be raised. A little while ago retrenchment was the order of the day. And, if the finances are as bad as reported, why this increasing of expenses? and likewise the kerbing and channelling portion of Melville street, at a cost of LSB i —a most unnecessary work, seeing that It has been in its present state for years.
