_ THE McCOOK TRIBUNE ?
The Leading Weekly in Western -
ern Nebraska. -
, : $158 A YEARiIN ADVANCE
Partisan Favoritism-Not Business.
When the county commissioners gave
the contract for the county printing to
the McCook Independent Enterprise ,
first of the year , the publisher of THE
TRIBUNE warned them of the mistake
they were making. The contract was
below the first cost of production. The
commissioners knew this-or at least
were repeatedly 'informed of the fact.
Nevertheless , these conservators of Red
Willow county's welfare deliberately
contracted with an irresponsible newspaper -
paper at a cut-throat price , only to realize -
lize within a few weeks that their official
newspaper was not qualified uuder the
laws of Nebraska to do legal printing.
The paper , a few weeks since , suspend-
ed. Thus the position and claim of THE
TRIBUNE has been fully proven.
But now we come to another chapter
in the comedy of errors. At the last
meeting of the board , the commissioners
deliberately contracted with the India-
nola Courier , at a higher price than THE
TRIBUNE offered to do the work for.
And the contract was made without going -
ing through the form of law which requires -
quires the calling for bids.
THE TRIBUNE would like to see the
board of county commissioners perform
their sworn duties in a business like
manner , and not be actuated by such
partisan favoritism as has characterized
the course of Commissioners Carmichael
and Thomas in the matter of the coun-
ty's printing. We would like to have a
square deal , just once , in the letting of
the contract for Red Willow county's
printing. It might look strange , odd
and unusual , but we would like to see it.
He Is Delighted.
J.H.Ludwick drove out to his farmfore ,
part of the week , to takg a look at his
small grain , and he was surprised and
delighted at the encouraging' condition
in which he found his crop. Both his
wheat and oats areabouteighteeninches
high , and as they are notheading out as
yet , lie expects the height to be almost
double. He has about 35 acres in wheat
and about 25 acres planted to oats. He
thinks the wheat will make to or 12
bushels to the acre. Before the late rains
these fields were considered as ruined.
