The area to be paved will be readvertlsed, it is said, and let under an entirely new contract. The concession made by the paving company named is made for the benefit of the public which is compelled to earn heavy hauling over a section of Q street that is perilous to life and limb. The new agreement marks the breaking of the first bond that has bound the ctty for so long In the matter of a number of paving contracts held to be illegal. GuIHr of Bootlegging.
