Dear Sirs;- Herewith a letter ftom
theolllceof tho attorney .gtuewil on
the (luestlon of advertisement tor bids.
It would appear that thli should settle

It Is a general custom to advertise
for sealed bids in tho letting of con
tracts for public improvements, the
object being to secure the best respon
sible bid in tho open market, this end
has been already accomplished by the
recent advertisement under the Hum
mel act aud in tho absence of an ex
press statutory requirement for adver
tisement for bids I can see no good
reason or object In re-advertlsemeutut
Iu my opinion no contractor who
was awarded a contract under the
former advertisement has any legal
claim against Webster coonty for the
reason that the entlro ptocedure was
under a void law and the bidder us
well as every other person is presumed
to know the law.
