10 BLOCK AWARD
Board of Aldermen Approves
Contract for Broad Street
WOULD NOT RECOMMIT IT
Candidate Asserts That It L
Duty of Members to Save
All Money Possible.
At a special meeting of the Board ol
Aldermen, held last night, the contract
made by the Committee on Street* with
the Washington Asphalt Block and
1 lie Company was approved. The reso?
lution now go, s to the -Mayor tor his
signature, after which the Street Com?
mittee will be called to authorize the
chairman to sign the llnal contract.
The only objection in the Hoard of j
Aldermen came from Mr. Menuett, who
stated that he did hot advocate any
other form of pavement, out objected
that the price of $2.Sil was excesslvt
He moved to separate the bids for tile
paving and for the concrete founda?
tion, explaining that since the sanu
company was now laying lite block
paving <"' Urove Avenue nt |2,li3 per
square yard, and since lie hail
been Informed that the concrete
base could be laid for ::t; cents per
square yard, he believed the city, by
awarding separate bids, could save
:'T cents per square yard. Mr. Bennett
urged that he would be unworthy to
oiler as a candidate for the .Adminis?
trativ? Board if he did not wat.h for
auch opportunities to sav< money i"
the city. To coritlrm the contract its
it was was throwing away thousands |
of dollars, he contended.
Could imi Separate Them.
Vice-President Adams, in the chair,
ruled li.at there Were 110 bids before
tin- body to be separated. The paper
pending was a resolution approving an
award of contract made by the Com?
mittee on Streets, The resolution could
be accepted or rejected, but the com
trabt as drawn by the committee could
not be amended
Protouilns that he had no desire u
tie up the improvement, hut that lit
could noi s< ? ? the city throw away
money so recklessly, Mr. Bennett
moved to r< commit tin- paper to the
Committee on Streets, with Instruc?
tions to get separate bids on the blocks]
and the laying of the concrete foun?
Mr. Powers replied that the whole
point bad been fully discussed in tht
Committee on Streets; that Mr. Ben
tiett's estimates fell far short of what
It would cost to lay a six-Inch bed ol
concrete, at-.d that the divided respon?
sibility of having two contractors on
such a Job would be dann, rous and
might lead lo poor work. He was con.
?\ I need that nothing would be sai
by It, but that it would result In end

Mr Moore nsserted that Mr. Ben?
nett had gotten his figures from 1.
Smith & Co., a firm which, after tail?
ing- to Kit the contract itself, had
worked . very way to prevent the As

The figures, Mr. Moore said, varied
from 33 t" in cents per yard from
