It hBR r"t ben the policy of the Water
beard to try Its affairs In thv newspnpere.
But In the last twenty-four hours there
na been a condition that has demanded
InvestiRStlon and should receive publicity.
Mr. Howell of the board and 1 started
nil Tuesday to And out what we could
atxmi th's water famine and spent until
midnight in the Investigation.
Wc nrst visited the Walnut Hill pump
ing station and found the reservoir empty
which meant that all the upper portion
of the city was absolutely without water
for Are protection and domestic purposes.
We found from the snow line on the side
of the reservoir that It had been not to
exceed one-third full. What water had
been in It had been drawn out.
We then went to the Burt street pump
ing station, exporting to find the pump
there working to their full capacity. Tne
Hurt street station Is equipped with thrc
pumps, one low pressure pump which
pumps the water from the river tnlo the
reservoir. and two high pressure pumps,
one of 7.onri.m) gallons capacity snd one of
5.0.(K1 gallons capacity, which pump water
Into the mains. To our surprise wa found
thM the lerge pump was not In oprtitlon.
We asked an explanation and were In
formed that four of the eight hollers were
I acq ue t and other articles which are sup- J out of commission and only four boilers
posed to have been rescued from the water "wre being run. They could only run one
by the young man after the boat upset.
"Gillette told me." continued the wit
ness, 'that he shou.ted to the girl to hold
on to the stern of the boat and he would
try to get her ashore. He said he did not
get near her, for he waa holding on to the
Klcck'a story waa the only testimony of
Intcr-M presented during the afternoon scs
rlin." He declared that since his arrest
Glllo'.te had given three explanations as to
how tht boat woa overturned. When asked

The contract for this work was declared
void this afternoon at a. meeting of the
Board of Public Ijin.ls and Buildings, al
which Treasurer Mortensen, Attorney 0;i

were present. The board declared the con
tract void as the best way out of a bad

waa a party to thi had bargain.
Several daj-s apo this board accepted the
bid .f the Lincoln Wall Taper company
to do this work at something like tionn,
this company being declared the lowest
bidder. Yesterday a representative of the
Davis Furniture company called at the
state house and declared his Arm had hid
something like I1.M0 for the Job. Then It
was anno'inced that a mistake had been
made In adding up the bids and the Lincoln
Wall Taper company had bid less than
I1.3C0 and this Arm waa declared to have
secured the work at the reduced figures.
Secretary of State Galusha Is out of town
today and other members of the board pro
fessed to know nothing of the contract
except that It had been let. After another
visit by the Davis representative today the
three members of the board decided to de
clare the contract void and so notified the
Lincoln Wall Paper company. As soon as
Mr. Galuaha returns a formal meeting will
be had and the matter made of record.
None of the members of the board In the
state house today would assume any re
sponsibility for the gross carelessness, at
least, displayed In letting the contract, but
