which is controlled by Speaker Merritt,
und rhairman Barnea has put the pp.

to annul ail contracts, ghing the contra? -
tors the right to recover any money they
may have spent or damages unstained In
the work so far done on the site by carry?
ing their claims to the Hoard of ? Malms.
As that board is a Democratic body, the
section Kivlnir to It ?ontrol over the re?
imbursement of contractor? is particularly
distasteful to the Republicans. The bill
provides for the appropriation of $215,000
fur the payment of claims and of 99tj999

Speaker Merritt lias a personal Interest
In the Wtngdal? prison matter, aa he Is the

i pat y, which hae s $104,000 contract for fur
i nlslilng ?tone for the proposed prison.

tlie ?tat?' purchase an amount of gtOBO
I equal to that called for by the company-?
contract with th? P -I ?'arlin Company,
s ii has th.. contract to construct the

?Governor declared the Bandston? company
had refused the offer and demanded I?5.00Q
In lieu of the contract. The Governor .aid
he had sln?e been advised that little or
n?.ne of the ?tone had so far been cut.
When Senator ItooocroH ask-d to-night
that this bill be advanced Senator Brack
i-tt, ths R'-publiean leafier, objected,
"Wi bars s terrlbls suspicion." he Kahl
"that the abandonment of Wlngdalo is fo_
tered and encouraged for th? benefit of a
?ertain contractor. It looks like a ?chime
of Tamtnuny Hall to relieve the contractor
from an onerous contract, the carrying out
