If the reports arc true concerning
the way the Maple street sewer sys
tem is being laid, there is nothing
else to do hut to have it dug up and
rclaid in a proper manner at the
contractor's expense. The proper
ty owners affected arc entitled to
their full money's worth, and we
admire the stand that Socialist
Perrinc and other members of the
council have taken to sec that they
get it. In this proposition there
can be no compromise. The credit
of the city cannot afford it. The
.specifications arc plain enough for
n blind man to read, as is also the
engineer's duty in regard to it.
There is a right way to lay n sewer
and there Is also a wrong way. The
property owners arc paying for the
right way and getting the wrong
way. It was only through the
kindness of the city engineer insert
ing figures after his bid had been
read to the council that the present
contractor received the contract. In
view of this fact he should sec that
the city gets the best work possible
instead of the worst.
