WHAT DOES SHOUTS MEAN?

by th protest if two bidders rn a
Panama contra bt $50nnoi'n against
he action of Chairman Shontz In mak
lng the award privately to a Arm ofl
bi own cbooshv.
Mr. Shouts makes this surprising
statement: "We did not adrertlse for
bids becamo there was no necessity
for It; It in a Panama railway con-
tract." We can Jinrflly credit the accuracy
of this quotation and we hoi Mr.
Shontu imx keen Misrepresented for
to say that this Is not a government
contract Is a subterfuge so sIHy that
It will utterly condemn him. The Pan-
ama railway is United Stfttc projer-
ty and Mr. Shonts is a servant of the
United States government. The fact
that the railway Is a spparate corpo
ration entirely does not effect the jjor-
rnmfnt's ownership nor tho relation
of Mr. Shouts to the enterprise.
We understand that many great rail-
way corporations make contracts with-
out inviting bids and this may or may
not be good business policy. Hut it Is
the government's policy to advertise
for bids and If Mr. Shonts has not
done so in this Instance he has ex-
posed himself to sever1 crltlcUm. A
contract for J50.000.000 affords a wide
margin for manipulation and differ-
ence in figuring. Mr. Shont3 may be-
lieve that hie favorite firm can and
will do the work better and cheaper
than anybody else but the public will
not be satisfied to accept his judgment
without the demonstration of compe-
tition. Wo can hinlly imagine a thing that
is so open to abuse as'the private let-
ting of a contract of such volume and
we .rebeat that we doubt the correct-
ness of the publication. If. it is true
Mr. Shonts Is too Indiscreet or too
conceited and arbitrary to handle the
Panama project. H' has at the outsol
of. his administration done a thing
which will destroy .public confidence
In hU wisdom.
The case icqulrcs the president's
most characteristic prnmptnosa and
thorough nose He cannot lot it pass
wlthotk Inviting reproach uion the
whole Panama enterprise. Record
