PRINTING BIDS A SURPRISE
Big Finni Who Usually Monopoliie the
Work Out in the Cold.
LINCOLN JOURNAL COMPANY GETS ONE JOB
ntaha Flrma Secnre Nothing, While
rrtmoal Trlbnae and Several
Small Concerns Take the
(from a Staff Correspondent.)
UNCOLN, April 2s. (Special.) When
ths State Printing board met today to lft
the contract for printing atata supplies to
laat during the year ana for the printing
of biennial reports, the Omaha and Lin
coln printers who usually get this work
ran onto a new proposition, and If the
board leta the contracts to the lowest
bidden those big firms will not get a look
In on the big Jobs. With the exception of
the supreme court reporta, which will go to
the Btate Journal company, the printing
of biennial reporta all go to the Hammond
Printing company of Fremont, J. L. Clafiln
of University Place and to Lee J. Howard
of Belmont. The bids filed by these firms
were In many instances from 60 to 100 per
cent lower than the bids of the big con
cerns, -while the latter Arms bad bids only
a few cents apart. The board today tab
ulated the bids and will meet again
Wednesday to pass upon them.
At one stage of the game today Clafiln,
who is a printer In a small way at Uni
versity Place, got cold feet when he saw
how much lower he was than the big con
cern a and he asked permission to with
draw bis bids. The representatives of the
big concerns promptly filed a protest and
after the noon recess Clafiln withdrew his
request for withdrawing his bids and asked
that tbey be tabulated. He (lied the fol
lowing letter with the board:
At the time of your opening bids for
? Tinting reports this morning I requested
hat the bids made by myself on certain
reports be withdrawn and be not con
sidered. Since that time It appears that a
number of bidders who might otherwise
have received contracts, should my bid
be withdrawn. In their earnest desire to
save money for the state, have objected to
my request being granted. Therefore I
desire to withdraw my request that the
bids be not considered and that It take
Its place among the bids submitted by
ethers. In doing this I desire to call at
tention of the board and of the public
that my bids are enough higher than the
same work was let for two years ago to
Insure a fair profit, while a portion of the
bids submitted are In some Instances
nearly 100 per cent higher thnn the con
tract price two years ago. With the ear
nest eo-operatlon of the different depart
menta, of which I am sure I will have, all
contracts will be faithfully carried out.
The following signed the protest against
the withdrawal: North Co., T. K. Sedg
wick, Benton Bros., Gillespie & Phillips,
Woodruff-Collins, and the Klopp-Bartlett
Clafiln wfll receive the following con
tracts Auditor's reports, 1.000 st 12.40 a
page. Two years ago this report cost $1.25
and it was printed by T. E. Bodgwlck.
Btate treasurer's reports, $3.25 a page. Last
year this report cost the state $3.15 and
was printed by Gillespie & Phillips. Re
ports of the bureau of labor, 1.000 copies
$1.08 a page. Two years ago this report
cost $1.22 and was printed or rather Is
now being printed by T. E. Bedgwlck. Food
commission reports, 1,000 at 89 cents a
page; report of attorney general, $1.42 a
page. Two years ago this contract was
let to T. E. Bodgwlck for $1.04 a page;
adjutant general's report, 500, $1.42 a page.
Two years ago this contract was let to
Bedgwlck for $1.17 a page. Labor bureau
bulletins, 10,000, Clafiln. I3.6 a page. Two
years ago Bedgwlck. got this contract for
$4.03 a paga.
. No reason has been given why the prices
lied for this letting are so much In ex
cess of the prices charged for the same
work two years ago.

OTTER IS CAPTURED AKTER FIGHT
Parmer Kinds Animal C rossing Field
and First Takes It for gknnk.
ST. PAUL, Neb.. April 28. (Special.)
Frank De Vry captured a full grown otter
on his farm three miles northeast of St.
Paul Friday afternoon. The animal was
seen crossing a field by Mr. De Vry while
at work and waa at first mistaken for a
skunk. When he realized what It waa he
decided to capture It alive at all hazards,
but was compelled to call his wife, a hired
man and a dog to his assistance before the
task was accomplished.
The animal put up a vigorous flght for
almost three hours, but was finally landed
Inside a barrel without being seriously
Injured. It waa shipped at once to Cyrus
De Vry, who Is head animal keeper at
Lincoln park, Chicago.
The De Vry boys, who have lived along
the North Loup river all their lives, say
they have frequently seen otter tracks In
the mud, but were never able to get close
to one before. The otter resembles the
seal In appearance and although a water
animal and apparently clumsy, It Is able
to get over the ground rapidly and handles
Itself most effectively. The fur Is soft and
valuable. Mr. De Vry believes he has cap
tured a prize.
