have shown themselves worthy of
the trust they hold. They under- s

the contract for the public printing, decided
jthtd decided that bids should be re- v
ceived sealed. C
The wording of the call The t
Gazette did not clearly understand, i
whether bids would be received so
sealed or opened, hence had pre-t
pared none, but stood ready to put a
in on4in any manner that would be Y
determined upon. It being decided e
that sealed bids only would be re- r
ceived The Gazette wrote its offer th
there and then proposing to do the tA
work free of charge. The Adver- a
tiser, had its offer already written S
and sealed and which contained e
the proposition to do the work and R
pay a bonus of zxo for the privilege. p
And the Polic Jury accepted the A
bonus and awarded the contract to A
the Advertiser. F
This action of the Polic Jury is E
commendable, for it goes to show T
that they mean to perform their du- R
ties without fear or/navor. pi
The Gazette is perfectly satisfied gr
worth the outcome. o
