Council Acts And Corrects ~; Printer Tliere arc more waj's Hnatl {ill a cat and there; ore more ways bail ono to correct a printer's error. 'he national suggestion Is to have tho irinter do ,it over again, but .the Vood River City Council-in session ast nlg-ht resolved to spnre the poor lonlworkins printer and. to save him rom Fo.much extra/work, decided to eenact tho whole proceeding, nnd lave It Incorporated In the publication if the new report. The city printer inadvertently omit- ort the names of George Rlethmnn -intl L. O. Thurston, police officers, ml F.-J. Manning, city attorney, and Thomas Hutchlnson, city engineer, ns ipnolntees of Mayor Tipton at tlje ast council meeting. It was first suggested that the minutes bo corrected by writing in _>en and ink, but City Attorney Manning Manning feared it would not be legal. He feared that «lnce the official'. report iack»d tho names of the. police officers, officers, somo offender might point to the official proceedings nnd declare himself "not legally nrrested." Accordingly Mayor Tipton thought that it would be preterrable to reappoint reappoint tho four officers named nnd have them re-sanctioned by the council council Instead of ordering a republlcntlon ot the minutes of the council. This was done and the new proceedings will contain the names' of the appointees appointees In tho regular manner and save the duplication of n trying job for the, erring printer.
