The board of county commissioners g<Jt together again today to investigate' the situation in repani to the court'house contract, the delay in construction being* just as objccUoj^ab^ to them as to any one else. There are two possibilities in view as a isolulion of Iho trouble. One is to for bids again for thirty days and relet the contract that way. The other is to reconsider the other bids thai were submitted when the contract .was let before. Thi§ would • mean that the contract price would be aomewhat higher than the one which Mr." Douglas made, but it would .m§an a saving of over a month's time in get ting to work. The question, arises, however, as to whether the board can legajly let the bid to the next to the lowest bidder. Architect Holland was sent for and arrived on tho afternoon train today and tho board consulted with him in the matter. A local builder, talKing alwut the situation, said that were he the contractor ho would make a difference of a good deal of money in his bid if he secured the contract late in July instead of in June. A July contract . 'would mean aclose rub in getting the roof on before snow flies and a consequent delay. For this reason he advocated the letting of the bid at once to some other firm. The bids submitted when the board first let the contract we're as follows, arranged according to the size of the bids: s . H. S. Gouglas. Topcka $43,148.^0 Geo. Shaul, Seneca i 4G,525.0O 'A. J.
