Beg P Morris Elected
The County Board ujst Tuci-
day morning1 for the regular
January session v/ith all members
present. Ben P. Morris was elect
ed chairman for the ensuing year.
A numer of commitfce reports
were taken up and disposed of
atid a number of bills allowed.
Wheu the matter of tne designa
tion of the official paper of the
county , which it paid for publishing
lishing- the board proceeding's and
and the legal notice" , came up ,
it was found that the S argent
Leader had offered to do this
work for ninety per cent of the
regular legal rates. E. R , Purcell -
cell presented a written agree
ment of the editors of the Chief ,
Mason City Star , Comstock News ,
Merua Postal Card aud the Loup
Valley Queen , agreeing- pub
lish the reports and legal notices
in all these papers for the regu
lar legal rates. Herbert G.
Myers submitted a bid agreeing
to do the work for fifty per cent
of the regular legal rates. The
matter was allowed to go over
until V7ediiesday morning.
When the board met Wednesday
morning , some of the Fusiorist
members indicated that Editor
C. W. Beal of the Beacon , had
verbally agreed to do the work at
the figures submitted by Mr.
Myers , and the Beacon was
awarded the county printing and
declared to be the official paper of
the county. Taking the work
on the basis o'f Mi. Myers' bid
will mean a saving to the county
of at least $500'since the v/ork
last year cost the county in the
neighborhood of $1,000.
When the bids on the supply
work were opened it was frund
that the bid of Purcell Brrtbcrt
was considerably lower than the
bids of tbe Sargent Leader and
the Republican. Purcell Broth
ers were awarded the contract for
furnishing the supplies for the
court house for the next year
The figures in the bids on the
supply work were considerably
lower this year than last and it
looked as though Purcell Broth
ers must have been lookingfoi a
negro in the wood pile , as their
bid this year was about $600 low
er than their bid last year on
