striktlon nt the 111 w water system.
I heir were three bids .ill told piesented.
All three 11I the bids were, on a i.uelul
examination by the committee, tije,ted.
I line ate several reasons given by the
toiiiulhneu lor the tejeitlon of the bids
In the Inst place, only one of the bids
whs properly exeiiited and piesented as it
should be. I lien again, there was muIi a
wide dillereuce In the bids olfered tor the

ally be done tot, and the other above, one
therefore bidding at an euotmoiis loss,
the other at a c.-iiii. heme one was bidding
to lose, the other to gain, or one or all of
them had little or no iiiiueption whatever
of the wotk thev were bidding to under
take. l:or instaiue, one man bid js cents
per load for remov inn 'hit, another bid do
ients lor the same work; one bid ?oo as
the cost ot doing a icrtaiu part ol the

Taking these things into consideration,
the water committee deemed it wise to re
ject all three ot the bids presented, and
thus acted anoidiguly.
The only thing lor the couucilmen to do
in an event of this Mud is to advertise j
anew for bids, and see It better results '
can be had in the matter of semiring ion
tractors. Baker City Republican. .
