HAMILTON AND PROSPECT The City Had a Klgftt to Ignore Mc- Govern's Bid If Tney Thought Me Not Furnish the aiaterlals or Perform the Work." Supreme Court Justice William S. Gummere rendered two decisions of great local importanoo thin Corning. suit of Samuel R. Wilson against Contractor llobert A. Mont- gomery, and the city of Trenton, on certiorari, in which Mr, Wilaon chal- ot-a certaia-con- wact between the city and Mr. Mont- gomery, for the paving of Hamilton avenue with Trinidad Lake asphaltum, Judge Gummero decided iu favor of the city and Conhactoi Montgomery, and the validity of the contract. In the case of Contractor William F. McGovern'vs. the city of Trentoa, in which McGovern brought up for re- view a contract for the paving of Pros- street with vitrified brick, award- ed to Dennis Koe, Judge Gummere de- cided in favor of the city and Dennis Eoe's contract. Hamilton Avenue. E The llaiuiltuu avenue case was argued at the X ebt'uary term this year before Justices Depue, Magie and Gummere. John H. Backes appeared for Samuel K. Wilson andnBity Solioi- toflHacpEerson'and JudgeKelitab for the city. The first ground upon which, it was urged that the Contract should de- clared invalid was that Montgomery is made to guarantee the enduranoo of the pavement for five years and to maintain it during that time at his own expense. This provision, it was claimpfl, .imposed upon abutting own ers, making them pay for repairs the cost of which should be borne by Tren- tonians in general, Of this Justice Gummere says: _ The provision in the contract relat- ing to the maintenance of the pave ment is a mere method of enforcing the guaranty of the contractor by a speedier and less expensive method Jhan by suit, andjt does not impose upon abutting owners any burden other than that of having the pavement well constructed at the outset. 'I Ins first cannot be sustained." The second ground was that the con- tract was not awarded1 the lowest bid- der. Justice Gummere states: "The proofs furnished by McGovern, when considered hy Common Council in con- nection wfth other relevant facts with- in their knowledge, did not sitisfy that body that McGovorn was able to furnish materials and perform the work, so they awarded the contract to the next lowest bidder. This action m that regard was finah The proceedings brought up by this writ should be af- fiftned, with costs, MISCELLANEOUS ADVERTISEMENTS. One Cent a Prepaid.

Beasley for William F. Mc- Govern and City Solicitor Macpherson and Judgo Kellstab for the city. McGovern insisted that the contract was not valid, because it was not awarded to tho lowest bidder-. The judge cites Wilson vs. the city_of Trenton, tho case noted above, on'this point, and continues' "Other reasons are given why tho contract should be anuullij, but they are not such as Mc- Govern is entitled to have considered and adjudicated upon in this proceed ing. They challenge the legality of the advertisement for b'ids, and of cer- tain specifictirionq which the contract resta upon. The proceedings under re- view sftould be athrmed with costs." HELD UNDER BAIL William Harle, William Stewart and Miss Dlohl Held by Squire Naur on Account of a Dog. William S. charged with stealing a valuable New foundlanddog from William J. Stew- art, of Keservoir [street. Tho clog was in charge, of Miss Diehl, a sister in law of Mr. Stewart. It is said that tho dog only escaped from MissDiehl for a moment, wEon It" was taken by Harle. Miss Diehl made an r.ttmept to prevent the dog's cap- ture, when, it is alleged, she was lather roughly handled by the do" catchers. At the hearing this morning, Siuirp Naar held Mr. Stewart and Miss Diphl under jj30 bail and Mr. Harh> under 8100. C. Kdwarrl Murray was prcaont at the time and advised Poundkeepcr Harle to return tho dog and thus aovid any further trouble. It is thought that the case will be amicably settled WJlhojit. taking ifc-i" SUPREME COURT UPHELD Court of Errors After a (onferenco Today Announced Its Jersey City Election Decision.
