JUGGLING WITH SWEEPING Councilman Oeorgo Pcseell is out of town, hence his ab»enc* from tbe session ot the board oi publio work* during the past three weeks. Councilmcn Munson and Kingery have been running that de partment ol the city government lately. Tho board finally made a recom mendation yesterday in the matter of *tieet sweeping, and it proved something of an eye-opener. It is so meaty and full of interest that It is herewith pub iiabed in full, a* follows: In the matter of street sweeping bid*, referred to this committe, we recommend that all bid* be rejected. Since advertis ing tbe information bus reached us that the park department should hay* the sweepings for fertili/.zer, and can use all of said sweepings to greet adv»nt*ge. One bid was made at $8.40 per mile.offer ing to deliver sweeping* to tbe parks. All other bids war* for les* prico per mile, tne lowest being J.VftO, and nothing said about the city reserving the sweep ings. Upon examination of the subject we believe the p»rk department should bave tbe (weepings, a* they have been obliged to purcha*e considerable quantities of the material. But the advertisement did not call for bids requiring contractors to de liver tiie sweepings at such parks as the park superintenent shall direct. There fore we recommend that tho city clerk be instructed to again advertise for bids to sweep the streete, requiring bidders to deliver the sweepings tv tbe parks as tbe superintendent of parks may direct. T. E. Gibbon, esq., protessted on behalf of George Aelxajdar, the lowest bidder, against any new advertisement for bid* ■ ■ proposed" above, as unbusinesslike and unfair to hi* client. Chairman Munson defended the action of tb* board. The mstter wa* debated at length, Council man Snyder lighting hard against the recommendation and forcibly giving his reason* therefor, lie wa* ont-voted. the motion to readvertise being adopted by a vote of sto 2. Councilman Savage also Voted no. President Teed was absent.
