ASK REFUND OF FORFEIT Through their attorney. M. S. Ja mar, Loveland & Watts, local con tractors, have asked the city for a refund of the $140 cash good faith bond forfeited to the city when the contractors failed to enter into final contract with the city for the con struction of concrete sidewalks on East Main and Spring streets after their bid had been accepted by the city. The check for $110 was at tached to the bid, representing five per cent of the contract price.
