1i)J - yf i ' I 12 THE SCR ANTON, tRIBUNE- SATURDAY,, OCTOBER 4, 1002. r,-rj ..v .HlVAJVlV 9 NO CONTRACTS ARE REQUIRED SOLICITOR WATSON'S INTER PRETATION OF "RIPPER." In tho Opinion Sent to City Control ler Costcllo He Assorts Thnt Con tracts Need Only Be tet When tho City Authorities Deem It Advlsj nblo nnd Declares for the Legality of the Mulligan nnd Spruks' Bills. The Controller, However, Still Re fuses His Approval. The exhaustive opinion which City Solicitor Wntson furnished to City Con troller Coitolln on September 13. advis ing hi in that the claims of Peter Mulli gan and Sptuks Bios, arc legal claims nnd should bo p.ild, and which Con troller Costcllo dlsiegarded In favor of nn opinion lendcied by his ptlvnte at torney, M. ,1. Mm tin, Is a most Intel cit ing document and contains a new In terpietntlon of the contiact section of the "ripper" bill, an Interpretation which Mr. Watson feels confident will stand the test of tho courts. It will be undei stood that Controller Costello refused to approve the claims In question because he believed, and was later advised by his attorney, that it contract should have been entered Into between the city and the poisons furnishing the inateii.il oidered by the dhector of public woiks. In his opinion the city solicitor first cites thnt section of the "ilppei" which gives the dhector of public woiks the dlicctlon, contiol and management of all things pel mining to the public Htieets, and points out that tho ques tion as to whether the materials and labor npcessaiy to keep the stieets In lepalr shall be made the subject of eoti tiaet "seeems to have been avoided." He then quotes the contiact section of the bill, which lends, in pait, as follows: CONTRACT SECTION. "All conti.it ts lclatlng to city affairs s-hull be let to the lowest responsible bidder, aftet leasonable notice. When the contiact exceeds $2J0, such notice shall be by nihertisemcnt; when less than that amount, athoi tlsemciU may be dispensed with. Hery contiact shall be let by the city lecouler and the head of the pioper depattment, etc." "This act as amended," Mi. Waf-on wiltes, "pi ox Ides for the letting of a contiact when the i ity authoiltles deem it advisable, but It does not provide thnt all cltv woik shall be done bv contiact. It leaves us without any legislation, as far as cities of the second clat-s aie concerned, lequliing that all city woik shall be done and materials fui nished undei lonliact. We aie then foiced to Intcipict Section t of Al tide IV of the Act of Mai eh 7, 1901, as above ((noted. Did the legls latuie Intend to put the dhectlou, e on liol and adminlsti.uion of the dep.ut ment.s of stieets and hlghwas In a person without giving him authoilt to piocuie laboi and put chase niateiials to cm try out the purposes of the act.' We think not." Mr. Watson lefns to the thhd-el.i-s, city act of 1SS0, which pi o ides foi con tracts for all city woik "except culi nary lep.iiis of hlghw.tjs," and ex piesses his belief that this act was ie pealed by the "tipper." but that evui II it was not, the dhector of public works would still "have ample .utthoi- ity to eng.igp such laboi, omplo.v suchM means, and piovide such matoilals as would be neiess.try for the ui dimity topaits of the public stieets of the city the money having been fitst appto piiated by the councils to i.uij out said woik." Mr. Watson saj , in con clusion: al'tiiouiTy cu:.n. "It cleat ly -eems to me that tlicte can be no doubting the atithotity of the ellioetor of public woiks to icqttlip the woik specified in tho bills to be done, and to puicii.ise the nee f"-.uy materials for that putpo-.e, and that the bills londeied foi lite set vii es and materials in the tcpalr of stieets should be paid Horn lite pioper appto piI.itlon." It will be scon that the sollcltoi's opinion Is lit effei t that any vvotk to quhed by the city, no matter of what magnitude, could be done without e on tiact, should tho city authoiltles deem It advisable. The i en son whv the matoilals put ihasPil by the illiet-tni- of public woiks weie put chased, as they weio, entlioly ap.ut fiom his authotitj to legally do what was done, was that they weie ic quired at once and that there was no time to ask for bids or enter Into con tracts. Tito lumber purchased fiom Spruks Hi os. was needed for the Im mediate lepali ot laldges and theie was no time to wait for councils to pass it contiact oidluance, a piocess which geiiPially takes two months and some times six. Conti oiler Cosiello said yesterday that ho is not piepaied as ot to give out for publication the opinion f tit . nished him by Attorney Martin. IIo ie-asserted his dotei initiation to lefttse his approval to the bills in question and reiterated his cat nest deslie to havo tho wholo question settled by court. Ho Justltlcs his consultation with Attorney Martin by pieicdem, claim ing that rlty olllclals have liequently consulted ptlvato counsel. It Is expected that suits against tho city for tho amounts uf tho sevcial bills will be bi ought In a few dab. THE MARKETS Wall Street Review.
