(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Neb.. July 1. (Special.) Sev
eral printers appeared before the State
Printing board this afternoon to protest
against tha payment of the claim of Tim
othy Sedgwick of Tork for printing tha
biennial report of tha State Labor bureau,
They contended Mr. Sedgwick had stuffed
tha report and made a total of 11 S un
necessary pages, for which ha aakeld the
state to pay SIX a page. They desired
also to have the board stick Mr. Sedgwick
for tha penalty for not delivering the re
ports on time. The board deducted $31.06
for tha total bill of IO6.40. In answer to
their charges Mr. Sedgwick produced a
former report which he had been Instructed
to follow in the make-up of the new re
port, and in addition ha produced page
proofs liberally marked which he said had
been pasaed on by tha department. In
thla proof was at least one of the,- pagea
which oontalned a black type title to which
the printers objected. His contention waa
that he had followed the pattern aent him,
had submitted page proofs, and that If
tha bureau objected, the objections anouia
have been marked In the proof.
Labor Commissioner Maupln and his
clerk. Miss Cora Schleslnger, both gave
evidence that no page proof had ever been
sent to their office. Maupln volunteered
the Information that former Commissioner
Ryder, who complied the report and passed
on moat of tha proof, would bear out their
statement, while Mr. Sedgwick was Just
aa sure Mr. Ryder would bear out hla
statement and In addition would say the
Job was eminently satisfactory.
The Tork printer then put some ginger
Into the proceedings by showing: a postal
card signed by Miss Schleslnger, calling
hla attention to a correction to be made
In one of the "title", pages In the "signa
ture." Misa Schleslnger and Mr. Maupln
contended thla card had been written after
the printer had aent down a few pagea of
the report stapled together for the bene
fit of the legislature.
Sedgwick received tha contract for print
ing the report of the labor bureau be
cause he was tha loweetvbldder, K26.40, for
the Job. With 120 pagea taken out of the
report at 11.26 the other bidders would
have received the following prices for the
work: State Journal, 11,204; ' North Co.,
81.186.R0; Woodruff-Collins. $674.48; Gillisple
& Phiiltpa, $S42.80; J. L. Claflin, 1804.9S;

Governor Shallenbergsr may have aettled
the row between the adjutant and the
commandant at the Soldiers' ' Home at
Grand Island when he made his recent trip
there, but It doesn't look Ilka It. The
Board of Purchase and Supplies which met
tcday to buy quarterly supplies for the
various state Institutions, received a letter
from C. H. Jones, commissary sergeant of
the home, aaklng for several changes In
the contracts. He Insists that the con
tractors should be compelled to deliver not
mere than a wagon kad of gooda at one
time, for theVa la no place for the atuft
to be stored at the home. In his letter ha
told the'Jpoard that frequently, supplies of
canned goods and oatmeal to last three
montha waa delivered and stored In a little
hot room. He took the matter up with the
commandant, ha aald, but got no satisfac
tion, and ha asked the board to help him
out. "It will aave money to the state," ha
argued If hla recommendations were fol
lowed. He also wanted It to be under
stood by the contractors that no goods
should be delivered unleas ordered. One
merchant told him, ha aald. that ha made
more money delivering gooda to the Hast
ings asylum than to tha home. Tf that
Is true," the letter aald to tha board,
"watoh Hastings." Another letter was re
ceived along the same Unas from some of
the members of the borne.

the commission that a firm bought his
neighbor's hogs, but refused to buy his

order prohibiting the firm from discrimi

Attached to the history of a bond Issue
of the village of Cambridge is a certified

ment bearing on that aubject la aa fol
The assessed value of real estate and
