One councilman out ol eighteen hail the courage ttl hts
fOnc councilman out of eighteen voted against the lUftliett
printing steal last night.
One councilman out of eighteen raised his voice in pro
{4o* against a resolution which consummated the holdup by
the publishers* combine which will take thousand* of dollars
out of the city treasury; indirectly ** of the pockets *>f «be
constituent* of the counctlmen.
Councilman James Kelso was the public servant who had
the courage ami stcadfastnesjt to vote against the award of ft
contract in which extortion is evident.
The remaining members of the city council retreated be
hind an opinion of Corporation Counsel Scott Calhoun that
the council must award the contract to th- lowcet bidder tin
less fraud in the bidding was shown.
There was no discussion nt the real meaning of this
opinion; no discussion of the evident combine of publishers
which in it-ill constituted fraud and furnished the ground
tm „■■■ "...
on which the council could ha.c thrown out all bids. Ihe
consideration of the bids was not even postponed for a week
to {jive time to investigate and determine if the high bids
were not the direct result tif a conspiracy.
Seventeen councilmen threw up their hands in true holdup
Yet. after the council had allowed itself to be held up.
Councilman Murphy voiced a feeble and indirect protest. He
stated that he had talked the matter over with other council
men, who agreed that the award of the city printing contract
should be taken from the council and made a duty of the
board of public works, and that .1 charter amendment would
be offered giving the board of works thi* power and »"
the power*tb refuse any ami all huts which seemed to the
boar.i to he exorbitant
By all means, the award of the city printing contract
should he justed on-to the board of public works. That is an
appointive body, which docs not shirk its duty to the tax
payers under the la>h of a publishers' combine. The board
of public works has shown true stamina under pressure, ami
has saved the taxpayers from being held up for thousands
of dollars. Thc-board would prevent extortion in city print-
But it is not I.- a shame that the taxpayers will be held
np for thousands of dollars during the coming year because
the elective members of the city council had not the nerve to
make a fight on the publishers'combine.
