The committee after opening the bids at once went into secret session. lt ra Have a Fair Deal. As The Arc.is has said before, it has no interest in the question of material to bo adopted in the new court house, other than the wish to see the best quality of material adopted. It is opposed to brick, however, first, last and all the time, and while the board has so far evinced a manifest purpose to disre gard public opinion in all matters, members have been heard to as sert that last spring's election in the return of Supervisors Sinnet and Oberg was equivalent to public ap proval of the strange acts that characterized the method or proceed tire in adopting the plans. The Akgi s furthermore affirms that the board did wrong. It feels that an outrage was committed in the star chamber course of action pursued. and it insists that in future proceed ing pertaining to the court house business be done open and above board. The Aunts asks no favors of the supervisors, but it shall be its Awarded Highest Honors-World' Fair. DLX it CHEAT.! 0703 MOST PERFECT MADE A pure Crape Cream of Tartar Powder.

Since the contest of last spring supervisors and others have made the statement that The Akous was not "in it" with the board, and that if a certain course of action was desired before theboard, the best way to kill it was to get The A kg us to champion it. or in order to have a measure succeed, to have The AKors attack it. The Arol's does not care a snap where it stands before the board of supervisors. It has made a fight for the taxpayers1 interests in all that it has done, and it proposes to keep it op and is willing to trnst to the futnre to justify its course. Its protest against the secret ses sions of the board was no more posi tive than its opposition to the part the stone men took in the adoption of plans for the court house, and the one man rule on the board. It contended that the stone men had no right to interfere with the plans. yet there were people who seoffed at me snggestion, and the stone men went on doing as they pleased, and it may surprise some to know that the plans which were finally adopted for the taxoayera to provide for had the approval of atone quar ry influences before their success was assured. Further, than this the same influences have been here since, perhaps not through the same foxy representatives, but neverthe less they have been on hand and are now. It is not necessary to reflect on the entire board in making these assertions, for The Aug its believes that a great majority of the mem bers are as innocent of wrong doing as they can possibly be, but one or two sharp memlers with hashed proceedings, can earry -things about as they want to. It is for this reason that The Akous warns the board to do nothing more on the quiet; let the public know what ia going on and be guarded about tne material. CITY CHAT.
