The present city council of Victoria  will go down in history—at least in  the minds of those directly engaged in  the building and allied trades—as one  'of the most unfair aggregations of  civic legislators who ever held forth  at the capital's city hall. These aldermen achieved unenviable .notoriety by  their action in awarding to their own  city engineer the contract of building  the sub-structure of the new Johnson  street bridge. Despite the fact that  three reputable Vancouver flrms.tend-  ered~on the work, any one of ;.whom  was well qualified to carry dut^this  important undertaking, the council accepted a' tender submitted by jCity En-,  gineer P. M. Preston of Victoria,; 6n  the plea that it' was approximately 15  Iter cent, lower than the lowest of the  other three bids.. ,This action, was  taken on the recommendation of tho*  special bridge/committee of the'£o£by  ca and.was.ratified" by the,council>t  its.meeting Monday. y        *-*■  The bid submitted byihe jVfelnHa  jcltlTengtneer, wait>f 177,876, and |hat  -without any 1 accompanying bond- 'or  check, while the next lowest was that  of Armstrong, 'Morrison;& Co.j»tVaA  s$y  TWO  CONVENIENT  •LOCATIONS  Iclricf  ,_ *9t «vt*fcfi the .  ..  tiicn anal women  of  city are certain ot the  I ormeete they want at  iMe-prlcea. ■■  Me.1  Ms,l  HO CO«OOvV»T. ¥r«ST  «ia P«*a*ii st. w«st  Good  a bond for the' faithful carrying out  of the undertaking, to say nothing"of  the absence-of the usual marked check  covering ten per cent, of the amount  of the tender. Then too, it is a safe  bet' that the city engineer did not allow for "any depreciation of plant r.e-  quired in the expensive operation* of  sinking these bridge piers. Such expensive items as water service and  lighting 'and cost of 'financing will  also be supplied free to the "contractor" in, carrying'out this project, and  he will also probably have the "loan"  of some of the city's construction foremen and city trucks to deliver material at the site, to say nothing of no  overhead expenses for housing plant  land material and civic machinery al-  ! ready in existence for engaging workmen. But .if in i spite of all these  manifold and overbalancing advantages, the city engineer has*to go back  to the council for an additional appropriation to complete his "contract,"  it' will be interesting to hear how.  some ; of the aldermen will square  themselves "with the Victoria citizens.  Very probably some of the aldermen  concerned in this drastic and peculiar  piece of construction procedure will  jjot have the chance to remain in  power to %ee the completion of the  project they have so suecessfuly bungled-at its inception.  - This unfair method adopted by the  council of .handling public works on  which reputable contractors tender for  the erection of the bridge superstruc  trie Railway Company, which was \von  by. the holder of ticket No. -17-13.  To szfy that the show was a .complete success is but putting it mildly  and the "very novelty of the affair  proved one of its strongest drawing  cards. Aside from the success that  "was achieved in a mere monetary way  from tho attendance, the more concrete results that arc sure to accrue  in' the sale of labor saving electric  devices and the education which the  public has received in the vajue of  electrical. utensils and similar improvements will bo apparent for many  months. It is planned to hold another  show next year on an even larger and  more attractive scale .than the one  just- closed:  circumstances under which ' the' city  engineer's bid was submitted an* the  manner in which he proposes to carry,  out the work; the wonder of it is that  It was only 15 per cent, lower'- than  any of the competing bids from p*riVate  contracting firms. Perhaps, if jeither.  of these firms were allowed to tender  under the same conditions; their bid  might*.have been as much si 25 per  cent. lesB. This shows the unheard of  unfairness of the plan adopted by the  Victoria aldermen.  In the first place, the city" enghv: j  eer,. in computing his.bid, admittedly-^  4id~not have to include the usuaJ^iOl  j>er'„cent. profit which is. conceded lb,  be   the   right   of   any   contractor   tb  make..; Nor did he have to put; up  tare is called in the near future. In  that* case, * unless some assurance is,  given reliable contracting "firms that  their time will not be absolutely wast-,  .ed in making up intricate and difficult  estimates, they may possibly refrain'  from, tendering' and leave the field  .clear to the city council's own official  •oontractor."  -!■*-   *"'        -EJ  S*<pW SIGNAL SUCCESS;  WILL REPEAT NEXT YEAR  Closing amid a perfect blase of glory  and enthusiasm, Vancouver's 'first- big  Electric Show closed its. doors-at. the.
