Unless the city council agrees to carry
out the contract for the sale of all bonds
to be Issued In the year 1!13 with Spltxer.
Iloilck and company. Ihe assignees of J.
Coad, the original bidder and pur
chaser. It Is possible that there will be
no hid offered on a $110,000 lssucTo be
sold next Monday night.
This was learned yesterday evening
when J. W. Ixmg, representative of the
Spltxer. Rorlck company of Toledo called
upon City Treasurer John G. Gltlln and
Informed him that the original contract
was binding und valid, though It hns
since been rescinded by the council and
It appears that In tho event of Its en
forcement, the city stands to lose some
thing In the neighborhood of $12,000.
Late last evening J. W. 1-ong. who Is
registered at the Rome hotel In Omaha,
said he did not care to discuss the matter
at present. He said he stopped over Sun
day In Omaha, but when pressed, admit
ted that he had been In South Omaha
and would be here next week when tho
renewal bonds are offered for sale.
Apparently Innocent on the face of It,
an Issue of bonds for the year 1912 was
offered for sale by the city of South
Omaha, The bonds draw Interest at the
rate of C'4 per cent. J. F. Coad. vice
president of tlve Parkers' National bank,
bid on the Issue on a premium of H of
1 per cent. This bid was made and ac
cepted by the city council at a time when
the bond market had listed the Issue at
106. The conclusion was that the city
stood to loso and someone to gain $11,600
on the deal.
The Omaha Ree printed the story and
a popular clamor waa suen mat tne city
council hastened to convene a special
meeting at which the contract waa re
sclnded with the apparent concurrence
of Mr. Coad, who never appeared anxloUi
to press the contract.
Coad Assigns Interest.
It now appears that Mr. Coad lmme
dlately after the sale of the bonds had
assigned his Interest to J. W. Long.
agent for the Spllier, Rorlck company of
Toledo, which, It Is understood waa In
a position to market the Issue at i per
cent, realising Immediately "i per cent
on the transaction, besides the difference
between the premium paid and that of
fered In the open bond market.
A proposition waa then made by the
Toledo company to buy th renewal bonds
to be sold next Monday night. The prop
osition further embodied an offer to be
come the depository of all improvement
moneys which were to bear 4 per cent
Interest while on deposit. This time the
offer of the bond company wag not
snapped up, but the council after a con
ference with local bankers determined to
tnke more time for the consideration of
the proposition. Mr. long's arrival In
the city brings the whole question to
Borne, who are well Informed, profess
to believe that the city may be forced to
live up to the original contract because
of a aiisnected agreement among bond
dealers by which certain territory Is
allotted to certain flrma dealing In
securities. This assumption amounta to
this, that unless the original contract
awarded to J. F. Coad and afterwards
by him to the Bpltier, Rorlck company, Is
executed the city may not be able to
find a market for the renewal bonds that
are to be aold next Monday night. The
proposed bid on these renewal bonds will
be 4 per cent. Spltxer, Rorlck had
signified their Intention to bid. No other
firm has so agreed. Unless therefore the
city will live up to Its original contract
assigned by Coad to the Spltsers It may
happen that there will be no bidder at the
meeting next Monday night.
In the question of the contruct rescinded
by the council there will arise the pretty
technicality whether the revocation of the
contract assigned to the Spltxer company
by Coad was known to the bond company
before Its acceptance of the same.
It will further bring cut whether or
not the Insinuation that there Is a bond
trust operating In the country Is true,
tlty'a Hardware, Bill.
Despite the fact that there are no car
penter shops maintained In or about the
city hall. Mayor P. J. Tralnor. did find
a hammer yesterday with which- to de
molish a recent criticism anent the quan
tity of hardware used by the city em
ployes within the last six months.
According to the statement, to which
the mayor and officials took exception,
the hardware bills for the city of South
Omaha within the last x, months
amounted to $-i.73. According? to a state
ment of expense drawn by th6 office of
the city clerk the exact i.um spent for
hardware amounts to $HHil7. The time
oovered by this expense extends from
January until t lie promt date, which Is
considerably more than six month?.
In discussing the matter the mayor
showed that the burn arc bought by the
city Is not dewted to the exi lusle IK,
of Ihe city hall. "In fact,'" suld the
mayor, there Is v ry little of It that
;vrr comes lo this department of the city I
tilling Into the hrmUed statement ol
the clly clerk, Ihe mayor pointed out
