The contract calls for a capacity of 127,

MEASURE IS TOO DRASTIC.
Mayor Ilnberts IIiin Vetoed Ordinance
llegtilntlng Triillle on City Streets.
Monday at the meeting of the city
council, Mayor Roberts returned tho
ordinance passed by the board nnd
calculated to regulate traffic within the
Inner flro district, without his approval,
is he considers pnnio of the provisions
The mayor's veto message follows:
To tho Honorable tho Hoard of Alder
I am constrained to return without
my appioval the ordinance passed on the
part of the board of aldermen, Septem
her 4, 1912, entitled "An ordinance amend
Ing nn ordinance entitled an ordinance In
relation to speed of automobiles or other
vehicles approved May 12, 1909."
My objections are limited to Section 0
and certain provisions of Section S.
Section 6 provides that "No automobile
or other veniele shall turn ahout on any
road or way within tho Inner trnffic dis
trict." This provision seems to me to be
too drastic. It would be difficult to en
Section S Includes the provision that
"No automobile or other vehicle shall he
allowed to stop except at the curb, or at
the curb, moro than lifteen minutes In
tho Inner trnfllo district." It hns been
urged by many citizens that this time
limit Is not practical in a city of the
population of limllngton. It Is. true that
our highways are obstructed, to a dc
gree, by automobiles, delivery wagons
and even by somo of our city teams
which nre lift standing for the con
venience of drivers or employes, and tills
sort of obstruction Is often the subject
of complaint. An existing ordlnanco pro
vldes that: "So person shall drive or
empl'.v any vehicle or street railway car.
or i I'm same to remain in a public
strt e. so as to obstruct trnvel,
etc. may he questioned and Is
qucstioni I, whether on the wholo it were
not wiser to leavo this matter of ob
structlun to the dlscietlon of the pollco
ruther than to fix an arbitrary time limit
within which a vehicle may be left stand
Ing In one place. On the other hand, It
fcbnuld be noted that tho police nre often
subject to unfair criticism when under
taking to exercise, a discretion In tho
Interest of the public against a private
My conclusion Is that, us to tho matter
of htnndlng vehicles Included In Section
S, tho board of aldermen may ileslro nn
opportunity for further consideration,
Perhaps If the time limit were mado to
upply only to Church and North streets
the public would be satisfied.

The demand for tickets wns so great
and It became so apparent that not all

that the change was made to accommo
