TRUCK OFFERED CITY t $1,000 OVER LIST PRICE As the result of Irregularities in two bids on automobile trucks for use by the Street Department re ceived by the aldermen Ust night, i. wrangle over the awarding of the contracts is to be expected when the board gets together again tomorrow nigjit at an adjourned meeting to consider the figures. Bids were re ceived on a three and one-half ton motor truck with sprinkler attach ment and a truck of like tonnage, but without sprinkled. Four garage· eompanies submitted bids. Two of the companies were about $1,000 higher than the other two on the bids. The presepce of the Middlesex , county representative of the "White Motor Truck Company in the coun cil chamber when the bids on two "White trucks, submitted by Jack H. Weitzen, were read resulted in the \rregularities being discovered. This representative, Samuel Feller, in formed the board that the figures submitted by Weitzen, of the Su perior Garage Company, were at least $1,000 higher than they should be on each White truck. The bia of Weitzen on the truck with sprinkler attachment was $7, '<00.25. According to Mr. Feller the list price of this truck is only $6,700 and this would mean a "good, liberal profit" for the agent if it was bought. He siad there was no] excuse xur tue auuiuuimi φχ,νυν ι profit. On the other truck Weit zen's bid was $6,900.25. The list; price of this car, the company's rep resentatives said, is $5,850. Another I big profit for the agent is possible at this price, he said, without add ing another $1,000. The White rep resentative told the aldermen any one could purchase these trucks at the prices he had quoted them on a tijne payment plan. It was intima ted that a caah purchase would mean a further discount. Tfie bids of the Perth Amboy Gaiage Company on Mack trucks were as high as those of the Supe rior Garage. For the truck with a sprinkling attachment 'the Perth Amboy Garage Company bid $7, 957.60, about $200 higher than Weit zen's. On the other truck, however, their bid was $6.836.10, about $65 less than that of Weitzen. The lowest bids received were from the Oak Street Garage, Peter J. McKeon. Two bids on each truck were received from this company. On the one with sprinkler attach ment their figures were $6,325 and $5.950, while on the truck without sprinkler tlie figures were $5,425 and $5,000. The car bid upon was a General Motors truck. The other bids were submitted by the Central Garage Company. Their figures on a Ward-LaFrance truck were $6,972.50 with sprinkler at tachment, $5,972.50 without. On a Paige truck their bid was $6,437.52 with sprinkler, $5,4 37.52 without. All of the bids were referred to the committee on streets and sewers, of which Alderman Christian Ander sen is the chairman, for considera tion. The aldermen were told by the White truck representative that it was only by accident that he hap pened to drop in at the meeting but his presence there should show the city fathers "what kind of men they were dealing with." He said there was "something radically wrong" when such bids are turned in on auto trucks with such a large mar gin of profit. i TURKS SUCCESSFUL IN ADVANCE UN CREEKS CONSTANTINOPLE. April 5.— Greek forces in northern Asia Minor seem to be in danger of losing Brus sa upon which city Turkish Nation alists are advancing. Tho Greek cas ualties during the past ten days on the Eski-Shehr front are estimated at 150 officers and 4.000 men.
