$12,000 Error in His
OAKLAND, June 7.—C. C. Morehouse,
a San Francisco contractor, who J was
awarded the contract for- plastering in
the new city hall, would throw up the
job if permitted to do so by the board
of public works. He appeared before
the board this morning arid asked that
his certified check for 14,075 be re
turned, saying he had made an error
in his figures, and ascertained that; his
contract of $40,750 would = net him a
loss of $12,000. ;..'.
Should Morehouse throw up the con
tract, his certified check would prob
ably be forfeited to the city. Mayor
Mott and City Attorney Woolner in
formed Morehouse that the law govern
ing public contracts would be violated
if his demand were granted: Woolner
explained that while Morehouse,' ac
cording to his "representations, faces a
loss of $12,000 on the contract, the city
in turn would be put to' financial loss
by abrogation of the" contract, since
new bids would have to be sought and I
considerable time .wasted.
Instead of acting today, the board re
ferred Morehouse to J. J. Donovan and
Sullivan W. Jones, representing Palmer
& Hornbostel, the city hall architects,
who will re-examine his specifications
with him. ■:, •'.;".:- -'*■;. r
Morehouse's hid on plastering in : the

that of any competing contractor. He
now asserts that his figures should be
at least $12,000 higher if he Is to com
plete the contract without an actual
loss in money.
