Taxes To Be Lower Under l New Charter Analysis Show Lower Salaries And Many Advantages Over! Present Charter. An analysis of the two charters shows the chief points o f difference to be the following: First: The government of the city and the appointment of its officers is taken out of the hands of the mayor and put into the board of representatives. 'Ve had under commission government a government of five men. Under the alluring title of prerepresentative government this was change d to make our government a one-man government, all of the chief officers being I named by the mayor and holding office at his pleasure.

City Comptroller Steuart in his speech in Gary last Friday night said he would be glad to give copies of the budget and old charter to the people present who desired copies,. When Sam Bucklew asked for the papers under Steuart's invitation h e was flatly refused. Mr. Buckle w was recognized as a new charter supporter, so the city comptroller refused lo extend to him the same priv ilege he was willing to give the others. Others receive d the copies. Mr. Bucklew had made some speeches for the new charter. It was remarked that the city comptrailer was afraid of his papers b e ing critically inspected. His action was commented upon by many of the citizens of that locality who observed his action. .. f :
