Tm: SALAUIKS QUESTION.âIt was reported that the committee had recommended that no increase bo made in the salaries of the teachers.âMr. W. J. Heppell moved that the recommendation of the committee bo not adopted, and that the question of salaries bo refer- red to a committee of the whole Board for further consideration. The matter had been before the com- mittee for some time past, but practically they had not got beyond one particular point. He (Mr. Heppell) felt that the subject should be further con- sidered by the whole Board it was the lower-paid class of teachers that lie proposed to specially consider. The scale was very much below what other Boards in the neighbourhood were paying. â Rev. J. Daviea seconded Mr. Heppell. -The Cliairman said that Mr. Heppell had put his case before them in a very plaus- ible manner. Personally lie (the chairman) had a strong objection to any increase being made. It was, however, for the Board to consider whether the ques- tion should have further consideration.âRev. H. R. Johnstone If the school committee, whose business was to consider matters of this kind, cannot come to a conclusion, it is not likely that a committee of the whole Board would. Mr. Heppell The committee base reported against the increase.Mr. D. P. Davios concurred with the majority of the committee. -On a vote being taken the following voted in favour of further consideration of the matter by a committee of the whole Board Mr. W. J.
