BOWERS COMPANY GETS THE
WRANGLE IN CITY COUNCIL
Fight Over Meat Contract Fails to
Develop, Politicians Deciding
That Efforts Now Were
The awarding of the contract for
furnishing hose to the fire department
brought forth the usual wrangle In
the council yesterday. The supply com
mittee recommended that the city purj
chare the Victor Jacket brand ma;Io
by the Bowers Rubber company of
Han Francisco and handled locally by
Harper & Reynolds company. The
hid for this hose, which Is the brand
now used by tho department, was 73
cents per foot for 5000 feet.
For some time the eouncilmen wrest
led with various brands and their
meanings, with tests, linings, jacket
ing, linen, cotton and otherwise, and
I>r. Houghton at last introduced Vuh-
Kar brand and openwork, though notio
of this variety was displayed, on ac
count of a special order of the chair.
The council chamber was crowded
with representatives of various brands
and manufacturers of fire hose. Each
was anxious for an opportunity to ex
plain how much better his particular
brand was than the other fellow's, but
none of them had the opportunity to
utter a syllable.
Chairman Houghton of the supply
committee had .the united support nf
his committee and the majority of the
eouncilmen based their opinions on
the recommendations of the supply
committee. The issue looked doubt
ful, however, .until Councilman Kern
spoke In favor of adopting the report
of the committee despite the fact that
he opposed the reference of the ques
tion to that committee. He explained
his action by saying that the supply
committee had investigated the sub
ject and was in a postion to know
something about the subject in hand,
and he therefore moved the adoption
of the report and the awarding of tha
contract to the Bowers Rubber com
pany, which was done.
The city's meat contract was also
contained In the report of the supply
committee and the expected fight over
this award did not materialize, much to
the relief of the eouncilmen. H. A.
Grieve was the successful bidder and
he agreed to furnish short chuck beef
and mutton at ?3.85 per hundred
pounds and beef hearts at 5 .cents
At the close of the committee meet
ing the backers of the other bidders
decided to carry the fight in
to open council, but a careful can
vass probably disclosed the fact that
the present council is not making any
more contracts In the same class with
the political brick making scheme and
that .the lowest responsible bider must
receive the contract. This probably
discouraged them from making the
fight for the contract In the open

tho Council yesterday. It wna finally
passed, however, Just as recommended
nnd drawn by the legislation commit
tee, as the council wiifl almost unani

would abate the speed dangers now

As passed the ordinance prescribes H

The penalty for violating the ordi
nance .is a fine of not less than $10 or
more than $100; or by imprisonment in
the city jail for a term of not less than
five or more than fifty days. The emer
gency clause was not attached to the
ordinance po it will not become ef
fective at once, but within thirty days
from the time of Its publication.
A strong fight was made to have that
section of Main street lying between
Twenty-first and Jefferson streets In
cluded in the district where it is un
lawful to run more than ten miles an
hour. Last week representatives of
the citizens of that district appeared
before the council and demanded that
this district should not only be includ

but that In it automobiles should be
required to run nt a rate of speed not
exceeding seven miles and slow dosvn

When the ordinance was placed up in
