COLD LEAD FOR
VENTURA COUNTY, RANCHERS
PLAN TO ENFORCE LAW
NO USE FOR "SPEED MANIACS"
South Main Street Residents Wonder
What Steps They Will Have .
to Take In Their Own
Will the citizens of Los Angeles be
forced to organize themselves Into
vlfirllance committees, after the man
ner 'adopted by the ranchers in the
vicinity 'of Casltas pass, to protect
themselves and their rights against
the "speed maniacs" who are usurping
the public highways? This is the ques

Main street are asking, and they are in
, The Ventura county ranchers, are
determined • protect their rights, if
they, have to resort to gunpowder. The
road through Casltas pass was built
at great expense and paid for by the
ranchers through their taxes. The road
was a necessity to them, for over It
long teams of mules and horses haul
hay, grain and the produce of the
valley beyond to the market. ■'_• ; . ".
'No sooner had the ranchers secured
their road which allowed of a passage
through the mountains at . this point
and a consequent saving of many miles
In the haul, than the "speed maniac," as
la -usual where others have done the
work of building, "butted in."
Immediately all those ■ infected- with
the speed germ who were bent on
"breaking the record" between Los
Angeles and San Francisco claimed
tho road over the pass, and big, pow
erful motor cars were soon whizzing
along the thoroughfare, winding, as It
does, in and out around shoulders of
When the big "devil wagons" would
come thundering around a curve upon
the laboring team of a ranchman there
was inevitably trouble. In many places
the road was too narrow for the two
vehicles to pass, and the "speed
maniac," as is usual, demanded the
road and that the rancher back up or
haul his heavily laden wagon into tho
brush. A line on the character of the
men the "speed maniacs" were dealing
with can be had when it is remembered
that not a single case is on record to
show that the rancher gave up his
The tearing autos terrorized the
mules and horses composing the teams

Then the county supervisors took the
question up, and legislation was en
acting prohibiting the use of automo
biles in the pass, to preserve the safety
of the Inhabitants of the valley.
Of late, however, the "speed maniacs"
have again Invaded the pass and runa
ways have resulted. An indignation
meeting of ranchers was held recently
at Ventura, where a committee was or
ganized and resolutions were passed
which still declare the use of automo
