was the lowest bidder, because of some
supposed irregularity. The committee as
a whole did not know why so much opposi
tion to Rowe.
I did assert at the meeting on Monday
that Rowe had informed me that he had
testified before the grand Jury that Lat
enser, In his own office, asked him how
much he would give him to get the con
tract; that he answered him that he would
not give him 1 ceut. Rowe further asserts
that he testified before the grand jury that
In the matter of the Pacific achool heating
plant Latenser asked him if he would give
him $300 If he would get him the contract;
that he answered as afterward In the mat
ter of the High school, and another con
tractor got the work.
I know nothing about the facts of this
grand jury testimony, but if It was given
aa Mr. Rowe asserts and was a simple re
cital of facts, it perhaps furnlsbea all the
explanation necessary as to Rowe's diffi
culty In getting the contract and his diffi
culty in carrying It out. I understand that
Mr. Rowe has dene business long enough
in Omaha to establish a reputation tor
strict honesty. As to Mr. Latenser, the
committee haa had difficulty at a number
of other points, the plaster and atone
carving contracts, for example, neither of
which is finally settled.
The school district of Omaha haa paid
John Latenser, architect, In the past four
yeara some 116,000. The district has a
right to expect a quality ef service and a
quality of out and out honesty that cannot
be questioned. Mr. Latenser stated in the
meeting on Monday night that he might be
dishonest, but "you can't prove it." W
ought not to be asked to.
