E. A. Wlckham, In a communication ad

which he filed with the city clerk yester
day, declines to accept the return of the
certified check for Sl.l.OK) which he de
posited with the city at the lime he sub
mitted his bid for the construction of a
municipal water works system according
to the plans and specifications prepared by
the city engineer. Mr. Wlckham refuses
to recognize the action of the city council
In rejecting his bid r-fter having once ac
cepted It and after having instructed the
committee on water works, together with
the city engineer and city solicitor, to draw
up the contract with him. He Insists that
he has a contract with the city for the
construction of a water works plant, sub
ject only to the vote of the electors of the
city. He demands that the council take
the necessary steps to call a special elec
tion at which the contract with him csn
be submitted to the voters for their ap
proval or disapproval.
The letter, which will be presented to
the city council at Its meeting tomorrow
Text of Letter.
Replying to your Inquiry for my reason
In rei using to accept 111a return of the cer
tified check deposited with my bid for the
construction ot the water works, 1 beg
Itiava to state that I claim the right to
contract for the building of the water
works, subject to the approval of the voters
of this city, and 1 do not wish to forfeit
any of my rights In the matter.
My understanding Is that the city council
acts as tile agent ot the city and has tiie
power to make a contract for the city. And
thla Is aa true with reference to the build
ing of the water works aa with reference
to any other bualnesa of the city, with the
exception that In the building of the water
works the contract must be paased upon
by the voters of the city, and their action
la final In the matter. If they approve It
the contract stands, hut If they disapprove
It, that Is an end to the matter.
You accepted my bid ana spread It upon
the records In a way to make It a binding
contract upon me. If 1 had refused to en
ter Into a formal contract prepared In ac
cordance with the plans and apeclflcatlons
on which my bid wss based, you would
have insisted upon claiming the forfeltute
of thla check. That was tha purpose of
requiring the deposit of a certified check
with the bid.
Now there is no such one-sided contract,
that you can refuse to make If you aee fit,
but that I cannot refuse to execute. I ad
mit that T entered Into this contract subject
to the action of the voters of the olty, be
cause that Is the law. And I also admit
that you might have refused mv bid In
the first Instance If you aaw fit to do ao.
But when you accepted It and made It a
matter of record, It was a contract be
tween the city and myself, and I had the
right to have this contract presented to
the voters of the city for their action.
The way your body has treated this mat
ter would Indicate that because the final
action of the voters Is neoessary, that
therefore you would have the right to. at
any time, withdraw from the agreement,
although I aearcely believe that vou would
Concede that I would have the 'right to
withdraw after your, acceptance of the
same. Aa I view it. I had equal rights
with the cltv by reason of your acceptance,
and I had the right to have you submit mv
cuntrsot to the voters: that, as I view It, Is
the purpose of the law.
Incars Considerable Expense.
You Invited bids on this work and I as
sume that you acted In perfect good faith
in the matter and Intended to let the woik
to the beat bidder, unless something out of
the ordinary should cause the rejection of
the bids. And 1 In turn went to consider
able expense to prepare a bid for this work,
which, in view of the estimate of the city
engineer, waa a fair one, and after ita ac
ceptance, hy your council I also made cer
tain Arrangements or contracts In expecta
tion of proceeding with this work.
Now it Is claimed that a non-resident en
gineer has stated to you that the water
Works could he built for less money than
the amount of my bid. and you made that
the excuse for your action In attempting
to withdraw from your previous acceptance
of my proositlon. I think it Is well known
to your body that the city engineer made
careful investigation and estimates of the
coat of this work before your advertise
ment for my hid. and there Is absolutely
nothing to show that his estimate was er
roneous, except the bare statement of the
other engineer rererred to.
Under the circumstances It seems to me
that the action of the council In attempt
ing now to refuse my bid Is a very unfair
proceeding toward me.
I think that the foregoing clearly ex
presses my reasons for refusing to accept
the return of the certified check whicli wss
deposited with the hid for the building of
the water works. I don't recognlxe the
right of the council to nullify their previous
acceptance of ray bid. and I respectfully
request that you luke proper action to pre
pare a formal contract In accordance with
your advertisement for hida and plans and
specifications for the work, snd that you
take proper steps to then submit the con
tract to the voters of this city for their sp
proval or disapproval, at a special election
to be called for that purpose.
