TO WILSON'S BID
(Continued from Pan 11
ho received this morning from Iho
nttornov general. Wilson would prob
nbly mil on Iho point thnt although
ho Is tho lowest bidder It docs not
necessarily follow that ho Is tho low
est responsible bidder.
"Must we," asked iho commission
In effect, "necessarily to rUo the hid
to tho lowest bidder?" Tho attorney
gonornl showed the chnlrmnn tho tnw
on tho subject and tho latter will
ninko a roiwrt to tho commission nt
tho session to bo held this afternoon.
"Tho law requires," the nttornoy
(-moral told Adams, "lint tho tender

He further slated thnt Wilson has
had government contracts before and
that In tho other two rases ho has
fulled to nuiko Rood on them.
'The attorney Koncrnl's department
, has not any Jurisdiction as far as this
Is concerned, however, and tho mat
ter Is cntlnly In tho hands of tho
commission. It has to determine not
only who is tho lowest bidder but
also who Is tho lowest rcsiionslblc
bidder. This depends also not only
on his financial standing hut also to
n certain degren on his Integrity and
"If they turn any ono down they
must ho convinced that ho Is not tho
lowest responsible blddor and this
must bo brought to their knowledge

Hint In the present Instance they
turned Wllvbu's tender down and
that ho brought mandamus proceed
ings ngnlnst Hum. When tho mnllor
came before tho court tho Judgo
would link what reasons they had.
Then they could say that Wilson had
a contract on Kauai that ho did not
fulfil and also a sewer contract ho
failed to complolc. Tho court would
leview tho facts and state that the
commission was right. '
The attorney general (old tho chair'
man that as far an tho political ns.
poet went It did not concern his de
partment In the slightest degiee.
Adams Makes Statement.
That the general public Is tindiit
worilcd over the high figures contain
ed In the bids for the first section of
the belt road, is the opinion of All'
drew Adams, chairman of tho lonii
fund commission, who was in tho city
ihls morning. Mr, Adams snjft that
the commission and Its engineers mo
not going Into the project In the hap-
Iwnrd n) that Rome of the taxp.i
ers seem to think, and thnt, on tho
whole, n tempest has fccn brewed
in n teapot.
"Tlicie seems to be a. feeling among
tomo of tho people that tho cntlto
belt road project will come to nn
end with tho conclnictlon of tho first
section," said Mr. Adauii. "1 would
ask the public to withhold Judgment
until Iho original estlmnlcs of our
engineers for this the mites Is made
public, whlrh will bo when the suc
cessful bidder Is finally announced.
"This section of road, from tho Ilco
la bench to Wnlaliolo bridge Is ab
solutely tho woist stretch of voud on
tho entire circuit. Not only Is It nl
niosl Impassablo In bad weather, but
it presents engineering dllUciiltlen Hint
mnKo tho construction of n first cluss
road a cry expensive undertaking.
There Is a largo amount of oxc.ivutlng
ami costly rock work Hint makes the
rest of tho ro.id building look easy
"Now as to tho time and money re
quired (or tho other sections. As
soon ns our engineers were through
with tho Ileoln-Wulnholo project thej
went tight to work stirclng (ho road
from Ktpapn Gulch to tho Wnlaluu

ready to mHertlxo for bids on tliut
10 Mi mile stretch. Then wo Jump to
Ihe 716 mllo stretch from Wnlaholj
brldgo to Kahnn i, which Is also com
paratively coxy road construction
Why, If wo spend $7,1)00 a mllo on
this section wo should bo railed down
"In this way work will bo going
on ocr all thico section's nt the same
time, ami tho road will probably be
completed as a whole. 1 can't say
on hnnd Just when it will bo finished
hul flflccn months Isn't n bad guess
llin rii.ul from lCfdinnn nn nnids erv
little to put It In first ehiss shape,
j rid 1 can sate' say that tho com
mission ins money enough to coni-
plelp all Ihreo of the mnln sections
nud then nine a substantial nmoiint
left or to repilr the rond which ap-'
proachos the Wulaltta Hill.
"Another jiolnt that wltl reduce tho
cost On tho next two sections Is Hint
tho railroad siibdUldcs a largo por
tion of the district, and Hint it wltl be
easy to get men and materials to
tlio scene of operations.
"To sum tho wholo matter up, somo
of tho people hmo gono oft nt half-
cock without being In possession of
