Mr. and Mm. It. B. Fleming gavo n
delightful party at their homo on Cot
tage street, Wednesday evening, In

Ktiostn woro moatly close friends of Mrs.

her back to her old home pveu for a
abort visit. Hoses wero everywhere
abundant throughout the house, and
eaoh lady woro a corBago bouquet ot
her choicest varieties. Drive whist as
of yore, then refreshments heralded by
a delicious pineapple sherbert and sup
plemented by auti-sleep cakes, plain
and fringed, berrls, coflee and choco
late with spanked cream, and. ice cream
served with a cold-chisel aud hammer
on the side. Three libelous carrlsatures
wero passed around tbo compuny, one

tion in which the candidate lost his
taffy, Mr. Fleming was quietly making
way with the Ice cream, using a spoon
In size little less than that of a spade,
and Mrs. Sutherland was In the same
boat paddling along with a spoon in
each band. Dr. Richardson promptly
took their temperature with uu orna
mental thermometer snatched from the
wall, ordered Mr. Fleming's spoon re
moved, and had them blanketed forth
with, which measures no doubt saved
the cream. Mr. Wagner entertained
a group with some choice Arublan
Knights selections, taken from the Bal
timore Life aud some original Jokes
which he makes in the yard back of
bis house on North Frout street. An
acquaintance who has the run of the
bouse and always looking for some
thing new, took great pleusure iu ex
hibiting Mrs. Fleming's new JS-ist Lake
rose. JNo cuttings wero disposed of but
they can bo had by asking Mrs. Flem

of (53,870, Is $8,325 lower than tho next
lowest old or the bid of G. A. Stephens
which was (50,195,
Second Whereas tho bid of Hutch
Ins & Bouthwlck ((53,870) Is higher
than tho, estimated cost of tho building
and after carefully considering tho
plans nnd specifications, nnd upon the
recommondatlou of Architect W.JJ
Pugh, we reccommond sundry changes
in the details of tho work, which will
not Impair the strength or appcarnnco
of tho building in any sense but will
save to the city, the sum of (4, 253 00,
an Itemized statement of said changes
being iiereto attached, and that said
sum of (4, 253 bo deducted from the bid
of said Hutchlns & Southwlck.reducing
said bid to the sum of (40,017.
Third We reccomend that the city
enter into a contract with Hutchlns &
Bouthwlck, for tho construction of the
city hall, in accordance with the plans
and specifications as amended, for the
sum of (40,017.
Fourth We further recommend,
that the list of changes, as hereby rec
ommended, the same having been
agreed to by said Hutchlns & South
wick, be made and attached to the
specifications, so as to be a part of the
specifications and contraot.
Fifth That the city attorney be in
structed to prepare contract and bond
in accordance herewith, which when
properly signed by the contractors, to-
getner witn good ana sumclent sure
ties, in the sum of (50,000 and approved
by the mayor, shall be the contract
governing the construction of the city
Sixth We further advise, owing to
the lack of funds in the hands of the
treasurer, for use In constructing this
building, that the terms of payment
and time of contract be referred to the
building committee, for an arrango
ment with the contractors, the whole
to be finally approved by the mayor.
Seventh We further recommend,
that Pioneer stone and Burton Bros.
pressed brick, be used in the construc
tion of the building.

Tho proceedings of tbo city council
In nwnrdlng the city ball contraot are
pullsbed In full in Tiik Journal as
they appear on tho recorder's books.
From tho record It appears that n
long list of alterations and omissions
are mado in tho contract and specifica
tions which appear to amount fo (4263.
Other bidders knew nothing of tho
Assuming that (4253 is tho truo value
of tho work uud matcrlul omitted from
the contract, the question arises has
the council the right to leuso even that
amount to tbo Judgment of any single
bidder, but should It not have let all
bidders know of the intended changes?
The list of changes is long nnd mate
rial, aflectlng tho construction of the
entire building, and there is room for
great difference in the estimated de
ductions that should be made on uc
count of such changes. The city
should have bad tbo benefit of open
competition from all the builders on the
revised specifications and if the changes
were deemed necessary the original
bids should not have been made public.
No detailed statement of cost in
volved in these changes was required
to be submitted to the council by the
architect, and there is no evidence In
their report that any such estimate was
laid before the committee or was ever
These facts are submitted to the peo
ple without comment. Wruld any
member of the council make such a
contract if acting for himself?
