HOLD A COUNCIL
! , r
At tho meeting of tho special com
mittee of the Civic Federation on
Streets, Parks and Public Ways, held
yesterday In ,the Public Service
rooms, tho matter of awarding the
belt road contract to the Lord-Young
Company was brought before the
committee in tho following letter
from Frank .1. Green:
'Honolulu, October C, 1011.
"M. M. McChesney, Esq., Chairman
Parks, Streets and Public Works
Committee, Civic Federation, Ho
nolulu. "Dear Sir: I beg to enclose you
herewith" a cutting from the Pacific
Commercial Advertiser under date of
October 4, 1911, bearing upon the con
tract of the Oahti belt road.
"You will note by this enclosure
that the first five miles of belt road
have been allotted to Lord & Young
at a price, of $79,710. You will also
kindly note that there was a lower
bid offered by John Wilson, tho price
quoted by him being $79,3G7.
"I quote from the cutting of the
paper: 'Wilson's figure was based
on a profit of approximately $30,000.'
"In view 6f this seemingly excess
ive profit, which was expected to bo
received by the lowest bidder, it
would seem lo me that the total
amount demanded for the construc
tion of 'the road was far in excess of
what should be paid by the commis
sion. "Therefore, T request that a moet
ing be called of the Parks, Streets
.and Public Works Committee of tlm
Civic Federation, before whom would
bn laid by myself a request that the

After a vigorous discussion of the
