The new automobile ordinance went
into effect today. The sixty odd own
ers of automobiles in the city will now
be forced to take out licenses at one
dollar per and also are further forced
.to purchase the registration numbers
of their automobiles from the city at
an additional cost of eighty cents.
All automobile owners are deeply
interested in speed and for their delec
tation the council lias fixed that the
rate of speed between Gordon street
and Tenth avenue on Kansas avenue.
Sixth avenge between Quincy street
and Jackson street, and Thirteenth
street between Buchanan street and
Lane Etreet shall not exceed eight
miles per hour. In other portions of
the city tiie speed limit is set at lt
in ilos.
A verv- attractive design has been
secured "for the registration numbers.
The design which has been recom
mended by Mayor V. H. Davis and
which vri'i be purchased, consists or
nickeled figures on a background of
patent leather, this is then suspended
from the rear axle of the automobile.
"I think that the ordinance is very
liberal," said Will Taylor, the. most
prominent of the automobile dealers
in the city. "There will be no objec
tion from" the owners of automobiles
on that speed limit. Smaller cities
than Topeko have ordinances of sim
ila r character.
"As far as the registration numbers
rue concerned I don't think that they
will play a very important part, in
the dark you can't detect the numbers
and it is impossible to make any ar
rests for excessive speed running- at
night. There are just about sixty
automobiles in Topeka."
For violation of the provisions of the
ordinance, a line is fixed of from $5 to
r,o for each and every offense. C. K.
llnliiuny is the father of the new law.
The ordinance:

same that most youthful grooms do.
Asked that the matter, be kept out of
the newspapers, and just for that the
incident is recorded.
Change in Policy at the Crawford
Beginning with next week the day of
high prices for shows at the Crawford
theater will be passed. A stock company
in repertoire will start off the new era,
and the prices will be 10 and 20 cents,
practically ten however, for the whole
house. About 100 seats right in front of
the stage will cost the additional dime.
Though Crawford & Kane strenuously
deny this new order of things as an at
tempt to cope with the Novelty and
Star theaters yet it looks that way
and probably no one will object. The
Crawford is just about the right size
for a cheap show house, but this is not
to be construed as saying that it is a
safe cheap show-house.
Vaudeville will probably also be seen
on the Crawford stage during the sea
son. It will not be a regular vaudeville
house, but rather the place will be
turned over to a conglomeration of ten-20-thirty
shows, vaudeville, stock com
panies, and slap-stick farce comedies,
for none of which a price of more than
75 cents for the best seat in the house
will be charged. In fact the majority
of attractions are to hunt the level
adopted by the other two Topeka vau
deville theaters as near as possible.
Arthur Kane, a member of the theat
rical firm of Crawford & Kane, was
seen this morning about the matter, and
to a question as to whether the place
would be converted into a vaudeville
show house, he answered:
"No, we have no intention of doing
that. We may have some vaudeville
here later on in case we find that we
have a week or two weeks open. There
are plenty of vaudeville shows that we
can book very easily if we want them.
There are scads of good ones to be had.
Next week we have a repertoire com
pany here, a stock concern. It will play
at prices of 10 and 20 cents, in fact 10
cents for the whole house, only about
100 seats in the parqut right in the
front of the stage costing 20 cents. We
will have nothing in the Crawford af
ter next week probably, that will cost
more than 75 cents for the best seat in
the house. All of the $1 and $1.50 shows
will go to the Grand opera house. These
transfers have already been made and
decided upon. We will probably have
a lot of stock companies here yet this
winter and a lot of comedies."
"Then the rumor is not true that you
will convert the Crawford into a vau
deville house entirely?"
"No. sir." was the reply. "We do
not intend to do that. We are not fie-ht-ing
the vaudeville houses here, and it is
silly to charge such a thing against us.
A small place like the two other houses
here is liked by the people. The vau
deville crowds seem to want a small
place, a small stage, and generally a
house built on small lines, for one hour
vaudeville performers. It all seems to
run together. We are not going into
the vaudeville field to compete with
them. As I say we may have some
vaudeville here later in the season if
we should find our house without dates
for a week or two. But nothing to that
effect has been decided upon."
