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. SHUMAN.

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.
