SOME OF THE REASONS WHY I FAVOR THE ADOPTION
OF THE PROPOSED NEW CHARTER FOR THE CITY OF KEYSER
OR OPPOSE THE ADOPTION OF THE PROPOSED NEW CHARTER
FOR THE CITY OF KEYSER

  The new charter, which if passed, that will make "The City of Keyser" is of much importance to the citizens of the town of Keyser, of South Keyser, and to the people who live on the suburbs. Every voter should thoroughly understand its contents. We ask every man to read it carefully and with understanding. We have been accused of opposing the new charter. This came about because we retried to accept it without reading it. We have gone over it carefully and attended every meeting held for its discussion, and where we might have made some changes we are ready and willing to vote for it.

  We are all of one mind in, that the two towns should be under one government; that from a business view point we should have credit for the 7,000 people we have , instead of less than 3,000; that we should strive and work one people instead of divided , fighting class; that more can be accomplished and a greater business transacted under a new charter than in our present condition. Keyser is growing bigger and better every day and we now must govern ourselves accordingly, rather we are forced to keep up with the times.

  W H Barger.

This space, a small portion, in these two columns we have set apart for the discussion, FREE, of the New Charter. All articles must be couched in respectful language and must be signed. Articles over 4 inches in a column will be charged for at regular advertising rates.
