the amount bid by Wbttchousc.
It was n matter of considerable
surprise that there were but four bid

copies of the plans and specifications

It Is no great matter for surprise
that Whltehouse was ablo to under
bid his competitors, for, ns has been
pointed out before, he had the advan

plaji on t ic giouud and of having
had tho benefit of experience all tiro
work done thus fur, virtually, having
been dune by hlur under the old con
tract. But It was not expected thnl
IiIb bid would bo so far within the
amount appropriated by tho Legisla
ture for the completion of tho work.
There Is J132.000 In tho Treasury to
pay for the completion of tho dam.
The contract has not yet been offi
cially awarded to Whltehouse, as the
Superintendent of Public Works In
tends to thoroughly canvas the bids,
so aB to leave no loophole for future
trouble; but thero Is no .doubt but
that the contract will go to the man
who held tho old one.
