Experience With Council
Sends Reform Plans
Snubbed by the council the char
ter revision committee turned the
tables on the city fathers last
night, counted them out. and then
decided to ignore them entirely and
sabmlt the charter amendments
agreed upon to the voters by peti
tion. In addition to the amend
ments submitted to the council in
the stormy session Tuesdsy night
an amendment was ordered drawn
providing for a non partisan munic
ipal election In accordance with
senate bill No. 4, which passed, the

'here is a question as to whether
more than one amendment can be
incfttded In a single petition, but
this was thought possible by the
-onimittee. The trouble with the
petition will be that it will be too
long for any one to read through
■md in view of the fact that there
are some popular amendments and
a number of unpopular amend
ments in the petition the whole
plan may suffer.
Meanwhile the amendments are
still before the council and will be
acted upon by them at the meeting
March 23. In case the council
should amend any of the amend
ments and submit them the voters
will have a fine assortment to se
lect, from at the coming election
and the puzzle for the voter will be
to choose the wheat from the chaff.
