Decided March 11, 1889
130 U.S. 142
ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF KENTUCKY
Amendments are discretionary with the court below, and are not reviewable here.
In Kentucky, when the record of a county court, composed of the county judge and a majority of the justices of the peace of the county, shows affirmatively an adjudication of the necessity of a construction contract; an appropriation for preliminary work upon it, the appointment of an agent to make the contract, and the levy of taxes to pay for work done under it, it is not necessary, in order to fix liability on the county, that the record should further show that the contract was reported to the court with the name of the person making it, that it was filed in the court, or that it was accepted by the county judge.
