Counties Can Build Bridges.
Bridge companies failed in
their attempt to compel Richard
son county to award contracts for
all bridges costing more than
500. The supreme court has
alllrmed the decision of the dis
trict court, which was that the
county could not be compelled to
re-advertise for bids for bridge
work after the county board had
rejected all bids received and de
cided to do the work themselves.
The county board contended that
bridge companies of ten com
bined and that there was really no
competition except when the
companies desired to drive out
some local bidders and in such
cases the combined companies
would often do work for loss than
ft was worth. The case against
the county board was instituted
in the name of Guy A. Crook. '.The
question as viewed by the su
premo court is whether or not a
county can build bridges whose
cost exceeds $500. Judge Sedg
wick's opinion shows that there is
an apparent conflict in the bridge
law on this subject, caused by
frequent amendments, but he
holds that two sections of the
same act will not be considered
so inconsistent as to be nugator
if by any possible construction
they can be made to agree. One
."eel ion of the law states that
county boards may reject all bids
and buy material and do the work
without a contractor.

Speaking of high prices ad th.
high cost of living, did it ever occur to you that mens and hoy's
clothing is no higher than it was 10 years ago? Just stop and
think, now. Did you ever buy a better shirt for 50c than you
can buy right now or a better pair of sox for 10c, or a better un
dershirt for 25c or a better pair of of overalls for SI or a better
hat for $1.50 or a better boy's suit for $2 than we are selling
right now, or a better suit of clothes for a man for $7.50 than we
offer you right now? We think you will have to acknowledge
that clothing is no higher.
