PAPILLION, Neb., June 16. (Special.)
At the last meeting of the Town board of

construction of the plant at once. The
bonds not being sold, the contract was not
made for several months, necessitating him
shipping the material back. During this
period he asserts prices increased on ma
terial so much that he lort an equal
amount to the above figure on the deal
when he was compelled to re-buy. The
board states that Nicholson accepted the
Job subject to the sale of the bonds, and
that if he made any purchase beforehand
he should be the loser. They threw his
claim out. Citisens say the board may
sue Nicholson on his bond on account of
the plant being unsatisfactory.
