what disposition shall be made of the
troes growing in the middle of South
Main and North Msln and other
streets that are to be paved was

CITY BARN MATTER
IS BEFORE COUNCIL
FOR FINAL ACTION
(CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE.)
hoard of health had intimated that
were council to begin the construction
of the barn in the rear of tho city
hall au injunction will be issued re
.training council from doing it. So
unlil a conference can be held, prob
ably next Monday, with the board of
health abu.it t li i . matter the report
of tho acting city attorney will bc re
garded as Information and the stable
matter held In a state of statu QUO.
The opinion rendered by Mr. Coch
ran on the stable contract matter
roads as follows:
referring to your request for an
opinion upon the validity of the award
made by the special committee to Mr.
Pruitt of thc contract for the ereclon
of the new barn or sable for th,, city,
I beg leave to report that I have made
euch Investigation os 1 could amid the
pressure of other bUBines.-?.
The minute book of the proceedings
of the city council on this matter
shows that on motion, the special
committee appointed to investigate
the need of additional stable for thc
city -tock was authorized to proceed
for tlie ercctioh of a building, the plan
for which was submitted to city coun
cil. If this was all the authority that
thc committee bad, I would be inclin
ed to the opinoln. that thc language
; used was not broad enough to author
! lzc the committee to make he award
and let thc contrac, but the minu?s of
' the inering a which this motion was
passed tur o not been revised, correct
ed or approved by the city connel, ns
no meeting had been held at which
this could be done up to the time that
the queston was submitted to ni" by
the city council. Dut lt was stat, fi.
howev?-, and agreed to by all the
members of the city council, that tho
motion referred to was broader than
a J stated upon tho minute book, and
that the motton which was parsed wes
with full power to thc committee to
act in tho premises. It was also
agreed unanimously by thc city coun
cil that when the minutes of the said
meeting were read in due course of
business for correction, revision or
approval, that part of the minutes re- :
terring to this motion would be cor
rected and revised so as to show that
the special committee had full author
ity to act In the matter of letting the
contract for the new stable.
The special committee, through its
chairman.'advertised for bids, and tho
plans and specifications, with all tho
details of thc proposed contract were
lett with the city clerk, and lt waa
stated lu the advertisement that per
sona desiring to bid could get a set of
plans from him.
Soveral sealed bids were died with
the special committee, and the special
committoe met and proceeded to con
sider the matter. I am informed that
when the special committee met. only
wo of the members were present then
the bids were being opened, but that
the third member o fthe committee
carno in as the bids were being open
ed and participated in tho meeting
from that time on. It was found that
Mr. Pruitt had made the lowest bid
and lt Vas sated ether by the chair
man or some member of the commit
tee that the contract was awarded to
Mr Pruitt, all thia was assented to by
the other members of the committee.
The committee thereupon ' instructed
the city engineer to have the contract
signed according to the plans and !
specifications stattcd. My understand- j
lng is that the plans and specifications I
contained practically all of the terms j
of the contract, and that all there was !
to be done was preparing the esme I
for the signatures of he committee I
and the successful bidder. Mr. Pruitt. I
At the meeting at which an opinion
was requosted upon this matter. Mr.
Pruitt stated that he was ready and
willing to sign the papers a any time.
The foregoing is a brief statement
of the tacts np to that time as they
have been stated o me. Under the
foregoing state of facs, if nothing
oise appeared, my opinion would bc.
Chat there, was a aalld award or let-1
tag of the contract to Mr. Pruitt, and
that the city would be bound by. the
action of the committee. I am very
clearly ot the opinion that the city
has' the power to authorise aa officer
or ? committee of tts members to
make a contract of this kind. The
action of the committee to awarding
the contract to Mr. Pruitt was laval
sad within their power As to the
fact that the contract he? not been
actually sighed, I do n? think 'that
would affect tuc . matter because* as
I stated abov?. ?hy uhde'HitAndliig fe

figures of bis bid so-as tu make it
lower than Mr. Johnson's, and seal
ed hi.) bid up and filed lt.with tito
committee. As to whether these al
legation sand charges are true or not.
I of course have no knowledge. But
if they arc true, then I think that the
city 'council would have the right to
rescind the contract with Mr. Pruitt
and.set aside the action of the com
mittee, and proceed o call for new
bids or make such new contract at
the city council may deem advisable.
But in order to justify the city coun
cil ic rescinding the contract on the
ground of what. amounts practically
to a charge of fraud, the evidence
should* be clear and convincing. If
the city council she ld conclude that
there is suhch evldc.ee and that it is
clear and convincing, and they decide
also to rescind the contract on that
ground, then I do not think the con
tract' would necessarily go to the
next lower bidder, but the proper
course for the city council. In case
they come to the conclusion . above
skated, would be to call for new bids
or make such new contract as they
may deem advisable.
I should perhaps have stated in the
first instance that when the special
committee called for bids the adver
tisement In the paper did not state
that sealed bids were to be received,
but flmply stated that those who
wished to bid cn the contract could
get a set of planB at the clerk's of
fice, but H seems to have been tho un
derstanding of the committee and all
parties concerned that the bids would
be sealed bids.
