have been brought forward for comments
pro and con on my action, I deem it justice
tomvseir to eive thocublicanexulanatlon
The request in the newspaper for bills
called for 3U,UQ0 pads made from SU by SS,
40-pound paper, 100 sheets to the pad. J
cut in bids on a complete line of paper.
nnd finally on tbe selection of tbe pad, a
35-pound newnpaper pad was selected, bid

at (10 per 1,000, making a difference ot J4
between my bid and Keynold's tiros. The

and offered to prove by machine and testi
mony that my paper was equal or better
than Reynolds Bros. My offers were re
jected. Another article that was bid on, was

was bid on by me at llU cents per pound.
It was awarded to Price & Roe at 12
cents per pound, maklna a difference of
some iiO more than was bid on by me for'
the same paper.
My assertion that my paper was equal

the most complete bid that was put in. A
motion was made to appoint a committee
of three to Investigate my charges. The
motion was withdrawn. I now challenge
the supply committoe, tbe board ot con

point a committee to investigate what I
have said. If this committee is not ap

THOSE CONTRACTS FOR SUPPLIES.
Editor of Thk Tribune;
The awarding 'of the contracts for
school supplies for the coming year, as
recommended by the supply committee,
surely bears investigation by tbe school
controllers and taxpayers. The supplies
in previous years have been furnished by
the lowest responsible biddor and the
question is, why should there be any dis
tinction or discrimination in the present
Where there are several grades and
qualities of writing paper and pads to se
lect from the committee could easily show
their preference for a certain weight or
ilnisb, but where the articles are distinct
ly specified and described Bnd there is ab
solutely no difference in quality or size,
there is no room for urgument aud tbe ar

Alderman Yfright's Assertion Concerning
Court House Marriages.
IT MAY GIVE MUCH ANNOYANCE
He Sayt That Marriages Performed
in the Court House by Any Other
Alderman Have No Legal Effect.
Awkward Position in Which This
Places a Large Number of Persons.
About Holding Police Court.
If the position taken by Alderman O.
E Wright, of the Ninth ward, is cor
rect, there is a large number of couples
in this county who are not legally mar
ried. To perfeot their titles to tbe
terms of wife and hnsband they must
needs proceed to have the knot rstied.
Tbe position taken by Alderman
Wright is that he is the only alderman
wbo ean legally perform a marriage
ceremony in the court house for the
reason that the law expressly forbids
one alderiusn or justice of tbe peace
from going into the bail wick of another
to perform an officinl act.
Notwithstanding this plain provision
of the law aldermen and justices of tbe
peace from all parts of tbe county bave
from time to time been called upon to
perform tbe marriage eeremony in tbe
marriage license rooma of the court
It would be interesting to these peo
ple just now to know exactly where
tbey are at.
HOLDING tOUOt COURT.
Alderman Wright also maintains that
be is tbe only. Alderman who has a
legal right to hold police court in the
municipal building. lie has looked
npthe law earefully on both points,
and avers that his contention is cor
rect and would be sustained by the
court if it was brought to their atten
tion for a judicial opinion.
One of tbe aldermen of the city who
naa frequently beld police eourt at tbe
city hall, yesterday admitted to
Tribune reporter that be did not bare
a legal right to transact business in any
ward outside of his owd, but ioasmush
as it has always been done he follows
the custom. Alderman Wright, he
said, had ne objection to going into the
riiigbtb ward to hold police court when
tne station bouse was in Centre street,
Tbe point raised is a most interesting
one, but may prove extremely annoy
ing to a good many persona.
