Here are the opinions expressed to
day by some of the supervisors:
-iijiei fi«.ir Paul Bancroft I am in
W of drastic measures being
lajJten to curb the growing evil of
speeders running down innocent
people. The severest penalty of the
law should be given convicted vio
intors who hit people with auto
mobiles and refuse to slop and ren
der assistance. in the downtown
district the regulations are pretty
well perfected, but it is the out
lying portion of the city where the
I'-ople are continually endangered.
It Is usually the Joy riders who in
jure and kill people. Something
;:m*t be. done to stop this s|>eed
craze and criminal carelessness.
Supervisor Thomas Jennings—The
Rutomobillst who runs down a per
son and drives away should be
(sewn no mercy. I think We all
agree on that. It would do little
good to put more legislation on the
looks It is difficult to stop the
speeder bjr laws. He should be
given the severest punishment,
which is bound to have a certain
etTe' t toward making others more
careful. As to. the general run of
«utomohilists who drive their cars
in the pursuit of business. I con
sider them cautious. It is due to
careful driving that 1H people are
not killed daily. The pedestrian
takes chances. Men and
women run for streetcars without
looking where they are going. They
often dart across the streets at the
worst places and under the worst
conditions. As to the plan of com
pelling pedestrians to cross the
street only at corners, it would be
*of great benefit could it be en
forced, but I am afraid that it
could not. For Instance, in Market
street the intersections with other
streets are at such odd angles and
a person is often bound to cross in
the middle of the block. Drastic
dealing with the speeders by the
courts appears to be the only solu
"»nper» tanr J. Fmiiietl Harden —
The only solution to my mind is
to make an example of the speed
er by giving him the maximum
penalty under the law. I would
oppose the traflV squad sugges
tion that each driver be forced
to carry a photograpii and a < ard
which would be punched for each
arrest. This law would make all
auto owners feel as If they were
members of the rogues' gallery.
Underground paaageways across
the busiest street intersections
would give the pedestrian more
safety, but this, of course, could
not lie done at once. Oive the
speeder a stiff sentence. That
is the best cure for immediate re
Super* iaor \oian—There is too much
influence being used in behalf of the
auto speeders when arrested. Their
prominent friends rush to their aid,
and. as a rule, they get oft" with a
light fine. This should be stopped.
I favor imposing a Jail sentence in
every case. As an instance of the
effect of this, all will remember how
Jack Johnsan, the pugilist, was
brought to a halt in his wild driv
ing by a jail sentence. 1 do not
favor the plan of having eacli auto
driver carry a card of identification
and a photograpii, the card to be
punched each time he is arrested.
A better method would be to punch
the driver and put him in jail.

Lillian Scott-Troy's Caustic
Letter on Diplomat Fails to
Please Local Suffragists
The disapproval with which Lillian
Scott-Troy, formerly of San Fran
cisco, views Ambassador Page and his
utterances, .as expressed In a cable
gram and letter that she has sent
from I-ondon to President Wilson, is
not shared by all the women of San
Francisco. Her characterization of
the American ambassador to Great
Britain as * "sychophant. a "Benedict
Arnold,'' "traitor" and tlie "smudged
page" appear to Mrs. B. S. Wllkins,
regent and leading member of tlie
Daughters of the American Revolu
tion, as "unjustifiable," while Mis.
Philip Bancroft. officer of v, tfc
Women's Roosevelt league and promf?
inent in suffrage work, finds it diffi
cult to take Lillian Scott-Troy's re
marks seriously enough to give an
opinion on them."
SKNDS < \ I STIC CAULK
The caustic cablegram and etter
of the same date were sent to Presi
dent Wilson by Lillian Scott-Troy on
December 5, the day following the
Peace Centenary dinner in London, at
which Ambassador Page was one of
the principal speakers. The ambassa
dor's remarks evidently Irritated the
lady considerably, as is evidenced by
the text of the cablegram:
"Ambassador Page, at peace centen
ary dinner in London last night not
only flagrantly insulted non-English
speaking nations but grossly insulted
the American nation as well. He said.
In America they lacked the expe
rience of Englishmen in generous hos.
pitality; they lacked the fine arts that
Englishmen had in .many of the
courtesies of life.' If you do not re
call this sycophant immediately, the
American people should recall you."
In her letter the writer says of
Page: "Like Benedict Arnold, he
rushes into bitter and spiteful com
ments on his own people order to
receive the crumbs which fall from
the social tables of Englishmen.
• • • Can it be possible that when
Ambassador Page so glibly told his
snickering audience that "Ameri
cans lacked the fine arts of English
men in the ordinary courtesies of
life, he had your excellency in mind?
• * • This Page will long be re
membered as the smudged Page."

The letter is a lengthy one. abound

Mrs. S. B. Wilkins, regent and lead
ing member of Daughters of the
American Revolution, says of tlie let
"I have heard nothing of this, hut,
from the text of the letter. I should
consider Lillian Scott-Troy's remarks
unjustifiable. I can hardly believe
that the ambassador's remarks rould
have been insulting to AmerleandV.
Either she misunderstood him or
was more to the speech which inadu
it capable of a different Interpreta

their ambassador. I believe, unless h«
does something particularly flagrant."
