A 1)111 Is now In Aie hands of the Doug
Ins county commlsHloners that Is puxsllns;
t.j Rome of the members, at least. It Is In
fnvor of Geori?c 1'arks & Co., and calls
for 11,023.75, for extras on a contract to
pt now boilers at the iJouRias county
hospital. The contract for sotting the
boilers was let to the Tarks firm early
in the fall, for a lump sum of 12.9S7, which
amount wus paid to that firm November
19. The original contract provided, as
shown by committee report attached, that
thiTJ should be no extras of whatsoever
nature, us the contract covered all that
was necessary to be done.
In a notation attnehed to the pending
bill the county comptroller calls attention
to the fact that Turks ft Co., have charged
In their bill 11.40 per yard for sand, while
Hull & Co. have contracted to furnish
sand to the county at 78 cents per yard;
that cement is ciiarped for at the rate of
BO cents per sack, while Hull A Co. fur
nish cement to the county at 29V4 cents a
The Itemized bill for extras of Tarks tk
Co., chnres for material 11P1.39; for steani
flttins; 1273; for brlek masons, $102.75, and
for helpers $:r.'fi.V. Thus there Is a labor
cost of 1S4.W. asalnst a cost for material
used by the workers of 1101.89.
Superintendent Elsasser explains that the
engineer of tha huspltul kept tab on the
hrurs put fn by the steam fitters, masons
and helpers, and that he supposes tho
sahia 'Is correct. . The work done was the
dlKKlnn of a pit wherein a tank that had
to be moved could be placed. Then the
pit had to be bricked up and new connec
tl ns made with the tank and boilers. Ac
cording to some contractors who have seen
tho bill fof ex'ras, the steamfttters, masona
sr.d other workers must have been kept
on the ground duiinR all the time the work
was In progress, and no one has yet ex
plained Just why this was necessary.
There Is another bill connected with tho
same Job, In favor of the United States
upply company, for 1251, for a valve by
Which the boilers and tank can be chaJiRed
from high pressure to low. Men familiar
with such things Insist the county could
have bought ft similar valve In open market
fo.- at least ISO less.
The whole .natter will be Investigated
and ventilated by the board before the
I'arks & Co., bill for extras Is allowed.
Crude Oil May

Wyoming crude oil to market br way
of a pipe line from Casper to Omaha Is
a project likely to be consummated soon,
atcordlna to Governor Brooks, who Is
taking & large interest in the developement
of the nulurul resources of his state. The
governor Is stopping at the Her Grand, as
tha guest of Krtd A. Castle, manager, dur

from Chicago. Governor Brooks has been
In attendance at the Farm Land congress

study of conditions. He told me Just before
my departure for tho east that It was
highly probable that a pipe line would be
laid down' the grade to Omaha, where
the ol could be put on tne market.
"That can be made to mean great things
to our country. At Omaha the railroad
facilities and later, possibly, river navi

outlet for the product.
"The Wyoming oil Is chiefly valuable for
lubrication. It Is true that the oil out
there has been little heard from, but It
has been known for a long time. Why,
way back there In the early days the
freighters used to take It as It came out
of tho ground In springs lo grease their
wagons. Oil can 'be skimmed off the top

BARTLETT MRS. PRATT'S
COUNSEL IN SETTLEMENT
Inside of T)rnl Whereby Drome anil
Yluannhalt-r Held the Sack la
The plot thick ns!
It's a good old game, "rolling the law
yers," ' said one member of the Douglas
county bar, referring to the settlement of
the Pratt suits by Colonel and Mrs. Pratt
without the knowledge of Attorneys Vin
sonbaler and Drome, who had represented
her li district court.
"It's brul on- the lawyers though." con
tinued the speaker "particularly when you
cons'der that Mrs. Pratt was in a position
to fore a settlement only through the
effort i of these atorneys."
"Tlu r. Is a law against "rolling a drunk,"
tald u jfd,;e of the district court, "but
oon aulnst tolling an attorney."
It has been Karned that Mrs. Pratt was
represented in the settlement by Attorney
C M. Bartlett. When Messrs. Vlnsonhaler
and Drbino were trying to locate her down
east, they got word that she had retained
S. Boston firm, Haley and Dlckerman.
Writing to this firm the two Omahans
received an answer that the suit had
5en settled, that E. M. Bartlett had acted
'or the Bustonlans here and that his name
had been suggested "by their Chicago
