The Western Dredging comrany of Omaha
forestalled any action on the part of the
supervisors of Pottawattamie and Harrison
counties. In session yesterday a a joint
drainage board, looking towards the annul
ment or assignment of Its contract for the
construction of the Boyer cutoff ditches
Nos. 1 and 2. The company made a propo
sition to furnish an additional bond In the
sum of $30,000, provided the time for com
pleting the work on these two ditches wa
extended. Thla compromise was finally ac
cepted by the drainage board.
At the Joint session of the supervisors
of the two counties In Logan last Wednes
day it looked very much as If the contract
of the Western Dredging company would
be cancelled unless the company was will
ing to assign It to Pollard, Qoff St Co.,
who have the contract for the Allen creek
ditch, which also form part of th Joint
Alfred E. Croft, general manager of the
Featherstone Foundry and Iron- company
of Chicago, which furnished the big dredge,
which Is saU) to have delayed the work
on the Boyer ditches, appeared before the
board and acknowledged that the work of
the machine had been unsatisfactory.
The board after discussing the matter
practically the entire day decided to ex
tend the time for the Boyer ditches to De
cember 31 of this year, and In the event
that they are not completed by that time
the bond of $30.0(0 Is to be forfeited to the
drainage district as liquidated damages.
Pending the next meeting of ' the Joint
board, to be held In this city May 21, the
new bond of the Western Dredging com
pany 1 to be approved by Chairman Spen

of Pottawattamie and Harrison counties.
