ments Readvertlsed
The board of public works wag In
carping mood yesterday nnd but few
of j the bids for street work which had
been submitted were awarded. Out
of 25 proposed street Improvements
only ten contracts were let. The others
were ordered re-advertlsed. ns the
bids were. In the opinion of the city
engineer, out of all proportion to what
the cost of the work Bhould be.
The attention of the board was first
called to these high prices by a lnrge
number of owners of property on Eu
clid hill, Boyle Heights. lllds had
been submitted for the improvement
of Ksperanza, Percy, Sablna, Sixth and
several other streets on Euclid hill at
prices that brought a gasp of sur
prise from the members of the board
when the protestants called their at
tention to them. In several Instances
40 cents was demanded for concrete
curb and 20 cents for sidewalks. These
prices are more than twice those for
merly demanded under the old specifi
cations and nearly 25 per cent higher
than those usually demanded under
the . new specifications. When the
board saw the figures it lost no time
in rejecting all bids for the work and
ordering a re-adverttsement of the Im
provements.
Say Prices Are Reasonable
These instances Induced the board
to carefully scan every bid submitted
with the result that 15 proposed im
provements were ordered re-advertised.
In ■ some Instances the work was so
badly needed that contracts were
nwarded as high as 36 cents for curb
and 13 cents for sidewalk, but hud
the board entirely followed the dic
tates of the mood It was in it is proba
ble that not a contract would have
been awarded yesterday afternoon.
■ "These bids have been growing a
little higher and higher right along,"
said one of the members of the board,
"and if we did not check them there
is no telling what prices they would
demand pretty soon. By refusing to
consider such high bids I believe we
can soon get prices down to where they
belong."
Several contractors, whose bids were
rejected, were present at the meeting
and declared they had figured as low
on the work ns was possible and some
insisted they would lose money at those
prices.- .— '•-.•■
SAN FRANCISCO CLAIMS DATE
Mayor McAleer Notified That North.
em City Plans Big Fair
in 1913
Word has reached San Francisco that
I^os Angeles is contemplating holding
n world's fair to commemorate bring
ing the Owens river water into Los
Angeles and that city has become
aroused at what might prove a possible
rivalry of expositions. San Francisco
claims to have already annexed 1913
as the date for a world's exposition to
commemorate the four hundredth an
niversary of the discovery of the Pa
cific, ocean.
Mayor McAleer yesterday received a
letter from San Francisco, signed by
Rufus P. Jennings of the California
Promotion comlttee which includes the
following excerpts:
"It is right and proper to notify you
that plans are being made to hold a
world's fair in S;in Francisco in 1913
to., be called the Pacific Ocean exposi
tion, to commemorate the four hun
dredth anniversary of the discovery
of the Pacific ocean, and also to com
memorate the building of the Panama
canal, at which time it Is expected the
canal 'will bu completed or near enough
fie. to assure Its completion within a
specified time.
"It is anticipated that the people of
1..0S Angeles nnd the people of the en
tire state will take an active part in
the exposition of 1913, and by united
action let the world know that Cali
fornia is equal to any emergency."
'When the mayor received this letter
yesterday his face lengthened a little,
as he Is a supporter of the idea for
r.n international exposition for Los An
geles. He declared he would give the
question a great deal of thought be
fore replying to Mr. Jennings.
INSPECTOR GIVES TESTIMONY
D. A. Moriarity Goes on Witness
Stand in His Own
Behalf
V. A. Moriarity, the fire inspector
against whom Building Superintendent
Backus preferred charges before the
civil service commission, took the wit
ness stand in his own behalf at the
inquiry yesterday afternoon and en
tered a general denial of the charges.
Moriarity admitted that a number of
buildings had failed to comply with
the new ordinance regarding fire es
capes, but contended that he was act
ing under directions from Mr. B;uku<
when he certified them. He declared
that he had received instructions from
the building superintendent not to
force a compliance of the new ordi
nance In eases where old buildings had
made some effort to comply with the
old flre escape ordinances.
Moriarity testified that in nearly all
the cases cited against him the build
ings were old and attempts hud been
made to establish fire escapes under
the former ordinance.
A number of architects were placed
on the witness stand to prove that the
factor of safety in the flre escapes un
der the new ordinance was eight and
ten times where it should be no more
than three times.
The case was not ended last evpnlng
and no decision will probably be given
until next week.
