THE POINT AT ISSUE.
With the filing of thu suit brought
by John II Wilson for an Injunction
against the progress of wmk on tbu
lleela beach hclt-rond strip, the con
trovcisy over tbu awarding of thu con
tract Is brought to a climax.
One thing, however, should bo bomo
clearly In mint In the midst of thu
charges and counter-charges that bavu
lilted thu air lately: thu legal lilies
tlou Involved and that of thn larger
iiuestloii, tbu commission's policy to
ward thu work us a whole, have noth
ing, Intrinsically to do with each
Attempt after attempt has been
made to confuse thu mind of thu pub
lic dining the contioversy. The com
mission was attacked by a certain por
tion of the community, and, It bus al
ready been shown, a comparatively
small portion, on the ground that Its
plans for building thn lleela beach
strip were too costly. This light came
to u climax' before the Civic Federa
tion and was settled, temporarily at
least. In favor of the Commission,
Thn legal question now brought up
has nothing to do with thu other. It
Involves only the commission's act In
awarding the contract not to tho low
est Milder, but to the next lowest. The
legality of this course Is denied and
the complainant seeks recourse by an
nctloti In eiiulty.
It should be homo In mind during
thu course of thu legal campaigning
and skirmishing to come, that tbu
commission's policy as a whole Is not
ut slake, although certain phases of
that pulley will tin brought Into the
