December 21, 1922 Editor, Tribune: Mayor Evans, in his letter, takes oxcoption to my statement, that of ficers of tho city of North Platte, had violated tho law prohibiting any such offlcors, having any interest, direct or" indirect, in any contracts of tho city. I mado that statement advisedly and know whereof I wrote. Sec. 40G9 of Comp. St. of Nobr., for 1922 reads in part ns follows: "No officer of any city shall be In terested, directly or Indirectly, In any contract to which tho corporation, or any ono for Its benefit, Is1 a party; and such interests in any such con tract shall void tho obligation thereof on tho part of such corporation.' I repeat that this statute has been violated by city officers, during tho past yoar, Tho violation occurred when certain members of tho city council sold mntorlals for use In paving tho streets of our city. I ncod mention. no names at this tlmo. I know tho facts hovvover and I fool suro tho. mayor does also. These matorials wore not sold direct to tho city, but tho contrac tor nnd if ono will rend tho nbovo statement of tho law, It will bo noted that this Is a violation thorcof. I am not charging that tho city was robbed In those sales, but I do say this law was vlolatod. Tho object of j such law Is plain. To what point Its i violation will lead, no ono can toll, j It would bo n hard matter for a mem-1 bor of a city council, or oven his fol-, low councilman to condemn any mn-j torlal sold by a councilman to tho city or ono holding n coutrnct with it. Lot mo submit a concrete illustra-; tlon. No mombors of tho Bchool board soils coal. But supposo ono of them did and ho mndo n contract, elthor dir ect or Indirect, to furnish nil tho coal for tho city schools. Wore ho so mind ed, would It not bo caslor for him to soli Inferior coal at high prices, than It would bo for an ontlro strangor? Personally, bo far as I know, tho paving of our streets has boon credit ably dono, and also within both tho estimated and contract prlco. I sln- corcJy wish that as much could bo said concerning tho Court-house. Lot us put tho best of tho ability, energy and intolligonco of our citizens into a "clcan-upM of our county af fairs. It is' not North Platto's prob lem nlono. It is tho problem of tho ontlro county. Tho officers who aro mostly under flro, or suspicion, enmo moro largoly from parts of tho county outsldo of North Platto. But that makes no dlfforonco. It nppoars that tho affairs of all good citizens of tho county, Bhould bo Joined togothor to put tho affairs of tho county In onion Aro wo equal to tho task? Sincoroly yours, "VM. ID.

McQ UAY-NO PISTON RIN Lengthen the life of your motor 'Automobiles, trucks, tractors, engines and pumps that work in the dust of country roads and fields depreciate faster than motors operated in cities. Dust wears down piston rings and lets gas and oil work past them. By preventing oil and gas from leaking past a motor's pistons, McQuay-Norris Piston Rings increase its power, decrease carbon troubles, and usually save enough fuel and oil to pay for themselves. No matter where you plan to have your car overhauled, it will pay you well to order them. Ask for the genuine McQuay-Norris rings. We Carry a Complete Service Stock J. S. Davis Auto Co.
