silver lining and our joys are found
where we least expect them. Repre
sentative Keeney, put onto a com
mittee which he thought so unim
portant that he did not care to
serve upon them has found that the
one bill of all bills in which he is
interested has been referred to the
committee on counties of which he
is a member. That bill is No. 39,
which would bring all counties of
the state under the law now gov
erning only Multnomah county and
which provides that no public work
of any kind in excess of $250 may
be let by the county courts without
first advertising tor bids, which
must be opened with the bidders
present, after which the lowest bid
must be accepted. No provision is
made to care for an emergency
where no bids might be received,
wUere bidders uugut not be present
at the opening of the bids, or where
the lowest bld might not be the
best one. No loophole is left, ac
cording to Mr. Keeney, whereby
counties might do their own work,
which would put out of business
the many thousand dollars ’ worth
of road machinery owned by Lane
and other counties.
Representative Keeney will intro
duce a bill to change the date of
teachers ’ institutes so that they will
be held during the vacation season
instead of during the school year.
