Under the advertisement for bids the commission ers have the right to accept the bid (or all or any portion of the stationery and printing which Is offered. Under this right the board proposes to go along the line with acceptance of the low bids. No on ha yet attempted to figure what the say ing will be; in fact this cannot bt, dons until the quantity and quality used Is as certained. Lot Bids 'Will Wla oa Supplies. 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 en four of the items and two other bid der on two Items each. Thus there are eight Items out of the fourteen on which the first mentioned bidder is high, so he will not get the contract for furnishing the whole fourteen as would be the case If he were low on a majority of the Items. The board was in session Wednesday for the purpose of considering both series of bids preliminary to awarding tha ooo tracts. Omitted from the list of county board committees In The Bee was the committee on Detention home, composed of Kennard, chairman, Ure and Tralnor. Among the bidders is the firm of John C. Thompson & Son, who have made some pretty low figure on mnny items of print ing. Mr. Thompson was seen and admitted that at present his shop Is out beyond "oft Omaha somewhere, on an acre plot. rT also admitted he at present has only a treadle press and a smull job outfit. "If X get this contract, or any conalderablo part of It." suld Mr. Thompson, "1 shall at once move my plunt down to Omaha and Install a power press and other neces sary conveniences." Mr. Thompson Insists that he Is represent ing himself and his son and Is not simply bidding for someone else. The bid was accompanied by the necessary chock for $200 as an evidence of good faith.
