The case was one of the longest cases ever tried in this court. Upon its decision involved the paying out of many thousands of dollars.
To the Water Consumers of the City of Keyser:
Owing to the waste and unnecessary use of water, I am compelled to forbid the use of hose for all sprinkling and washing purposes. This order is not issued on account of any scarcity of water in the dam, but the pipe line is too small to convey water to the 1800 users when the hose are in use. The pressure is reduced so it will not carry the water on high ground.
