Judge Redick, sitting in law court,
has begun hearing on application for
temporary injunction brought ,by
Bauer & Johnson, paving contractors,
against the Callahan Construction
company, a rival concern, and the
countv commissioners.
It is part of the paving row in
which Bauer it Johnson seek to have
a contract given to the Callahan com
pany set aside and awarded them.
lhe Callahan company was awarded
a contract to pave a nine ot county
roan under what is known as trie
Tinlev method." The contract nrice
was "fl cents a yard, stone extra.
Batitr & Johnson refused to take a
contract for a mile. Their bid for
five miles wa3 36 cents a yard, stone
The countv board's idea was to
have each company put in a test mile
of paving and then award the bal
ance ot the contract to the concern
whose method proved to be the best.
Attorney breen, for Bauer sr John
son, told the court the commissioners
had no right to let a contract for one
mile after advertising for bids' tor
Hive miles. He said the "Finley
method had no special merit. He
said he may later charge "fraud" on
account of the high price of the Cal
lahan people s bid.
lhe board must follow the legal
procedure- advertise for bids and
then let a contract according to speci
fications, he declared.
