What is true of the printing bids holds
good,' but In leaser degree, of the bids for
supplies. One firm that bids lowest, for
Instance, on six of fourteen Items, will
only get the contract for the supplies on
which It is lowest. Another bidder Is low

the conditional subscription of Dr. A. F.

Then there is a number or srnuuer oaer

PLAN TO AID OLD MINISTERS
Claimants' Association Is Incorpor
ated by orth Nebraska Metnu-
aiai loniercncv, ,
Articles of Incorporation of the Confer
ence Claimants' association of the North
Nebraska conference of the Methodlat
Eplacopal church were filed Wednesday
with the county clerk. Its object Is to
create by gifts, bequests and subscriptions
by solicitation an annuity fund fur super
annuated ministers, their widows and or
'pliuns. Rev. F. M. Btsson of Omaha I
president. Rev. 'William Go rut of Omaha,
presiding elder of this district, is vice presi
dent; J. U. Lledy is secretary and Rev. G.
I A. Luce of Omaha Is treasurer.
I TU Conference Claimants' asuocialtoiv
i unincorporated, has been quietly at work
j for some time. It now has a cash fund of
S3.W ana notes representing oetween sd.vuu
and $7,0u0, payable tn annual Installments.
All the ministers of the district have agreed
to give a percentage of their annual In-
i come to the fund.
1 Bo far as known, no other organisation
of the kind exists in Nebraska. In the
older conferences of the east they are com
mon. The present association Is Indirectly
the fruit of the efforts of Rev. David Mar
quette of t'niversity Place, a, pioneer
preacher of Nebraska and Omaha, to pro
vide a fund for. the support of superan
nuated ministers. The plan waa one of his
pet Ideas and he never lost a chance to
I advocate It.
