St. Petersburg Firemen Well Treated

Issue 8 and Volume 64.

St. Petersburg Firemen Well Treated The members of the fire department of St. Petersburg, Fla., have every reason to be satisfied with the fair treatment they have just received from the city government. A correspondent writes that commencing July 1 last all the firemen received an increase of $10 a month in their salaries. This pays them $102.50 a month after being in the service one year, and it is the third raise the men have received in the past eighteen months. The salary of Chief J. T. McNulty is only $1,800. The increase was brought about by the efforts of Mayor Al. F. Lang, and although it is a good addition to the former pay of the members, it is found difficult to procure good men even at the present figure.
