Huddard and two other parties, it seems, were racing in their cajs from the tracks to the North River bridge. They mado the trip twice in their cars and Huddard was in tho lead when tl)o officers appeared. Chief of Police Fra zier announces that he will put a stop to all such doings as it is contrary to a city ordinance and is dangerous as well. So many people, he anys, seem to think that as soon jii they have crossed the tracks they are out of the city and are, at liberty to go as fast as jlhoy wish. So many children play on the streets in thnt partof the city that it is evon more dangerous than in tho mnin part of town and a few more aVe to have a lesson in driving curs unless the speed ing stops and they will not get oft with a minimum fine. While it makos the ones arrested very warm under the collar it is for tho good of the city and for their own aB well as it may avert serious accidents.
