City Police Out After Speeders and
Otheir Violators of the Traffic Laws.
The city police force is again begin
ning to wake an active campaign
against violators of the city trafflc or
dinaices following instructions from
Mayor Dial to enforce them to the let
ter. -Several violators of the minor
sections of the ordinance in regard to
l)arking on the business streets were
"pulled" by the city police Monday, but
after a hearing before the full coun
cil Monday night the ines 'were re
mitted Iby the Mayor. The 'Dixie Flour
G Grain Company and the 'Home Fur
aiture 'Company were the offenders.
M1r. J. C. Todd, appearing for the
Dixie Flour & Grain Company, said
the ordinance worked a considerable
liardship on lbusiness houses in his
section of the city, NEast lain street,
ind that It was dificult to load and
tnload trucks under such stringent
rules. He stated that he thought that
the owners of the property which he
)ccupied would grant a right-of-way
n the rear of his store for an alley if
he city would work it. If the city
,vould do this, he said, he would be
ible to keep his trucks off of the street
mntirely. In reply to his enquiry
vhethcr or not the city would keep
muoh an alley in repair, lie was given
i chorus of ayes from the aldermen,
mt no formal motion was passed.
