roE A CHINESE WALL
aTo Support the Shore Street of ML
'TflE BIDS HELD OVER FOE AWHILE
A Caution to Contractors Who Are Aniicia
to Put Wort at low Figures.
THE DEPAETMEKT OP AWAEDS AHEAD
After a long interval of suspense, the De
partment of Awards met yesterday after
soon and approved a number of street im
provements and setter contracts. The most
important subject of discussion (being the
heaviest contract for street improvements
taken in hand for some time) was the grad
ing, paving, curbing, sewering and build
ing a retaining wall along the bluff below
Grandview avenue in. the Thirty-second and
Thirty-fifth wards. The ground under dis
cussion is about two miles in length, extend
ing from 'Wyoming street to Oneida, and the
present rainy weather, which is tearing the
real estate away from beneath the feet or
foundations of the property holders, natural
ly makes them anxious. The sidewalks along
the bluff are particularly dangerous after
dark, in many places the hand rail being
totally cnt away, and liability to accident
being imminent. One of the property
owners on Grandview avenue cited last
evening the case of a woman, who fell over
the mutt a few months ago at night ana re
mained with a broken limb some CO feet
down until being discovered next morning,
as a proof of the dangerous condition of the
MA2TT BIDS, BUT HO A"WABD.
2o award was made yesterday, although
bids were opened from Booth & Flinn,
Martin Jovce, Sloane & Mcllwaine, 21c
Cormick & Moran and H. C. Howard.
There were so many calculations to make
and the bids were so nearly alike that, on
motion of Mr. Bigelow, they were referred
to the clerk for tabulation and the award
will be made at a future meeting. "Without
making a close examination ot the figures,
it appears that .Martin Joyce is the lowest
bidder, though the clerk's calculations may
show to the contrary. The lollowing
awards were made:
pipe sewer on Reed street, 15-lnch. 82 per
foot: manholes, X25 eacb; catch basins, $26 each;

A PfcBCEDENT AND A WABXTXG.
As in all courts of power to distribute,
the Department of Awards had a case yes
terday to serve as a precedent. Ott
Bros, were bidders on the Cypress street
sewer contract; but when the meeting com
menced business Charles Ott, who was in
the Council chamber lobby, asked permis
sion to withdraw his bid on account of the
fact that since he had banded it in he had
discovered the figures were placed too low.
This was refused, as he was told that a man
putting in contracts for such work should
consider beforehand what he was doing, and
be careful of his own interests as well as
those ot his bondsmen. After the bid was
presented and received it could not be re
called. Mr. Ott felt very much aggrieved over the
matter, and expressed himself warmly, say
ing it was unfair to hold any man to a con
tract made through a confessed mistake, and
upon the face of which it was apparent he
would lose money. The ruling in the case
was made final, however; but, to the great
relief of Mr. Ott, when the bids werenpened
it was discovered that Eagen & McQuaide
had made a much lower bid than he had.

From the chronic tortures of constipation, that
most obstinate and harassing ailment, the
sufferer who has tried a course of Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, feels conscious that he need
never be enthralled again with that beneficent
specific at hand. Dyspepsia, kidney and blad
der inaction, malaria, sick headache, are all re
lieved by this ineffable alterative medicine.
THE CHILDREN'S HEROES.
Bluebeard, Jr., and a Few of Its Thousnnd
No one should miss the novel features of
"Bluebeard, Jr.," the operatic spectacular
extravaganza, which begins an engagement
at the Grand Monday night. The New
Tork Herald, the World and other metro
politan journals, in lauding the entire per
formance, make special reierence to "The
Children's Heroes," "The Old "Woman Who
Lived in a Shoe With Her Children" and
"The Little Lords Fauntleroy." These are
impersonated bv 40 little ones. It is the
most attractive exhibition of juvenile talent
ever witnessed. The ballet in "Bluebeard,
Jr.," is very large. There are 60 coryphees
and three premieres. Seats are now selling
for the engagement.
