Robbers Compel Woman
to Sign Check For SIOO
Special to The Telegraph
Lewistown, Pa., Feb. 5. Two men
entered the home of Daniel Bohrman,
a short distance from Mifflin, about 8
o clock yestcr lay morning, and de
manded money. Mrs. Bohrman and a
three-year-old son were alone in the
house at the time. The woman was
overpowered, a silk handkerchief was
forced in her mouth, and the house
ransacked. They only secured a gold
watch and $1 in money. Knowing that
the family had some money in bank
the desperadoes compelled Mrs. Bohr
man to sign a check for SIOO. She
siirned the check In her own name, but
the money Is In the bank In the name
of the husband, so it is unlikely that
the chec»v would be honored. All banks
in this section have leen notified of
the occurrence.

Statement Issued by State Highway
Department, Says All Care
fully Considered
People Neglected to Take Out Li
censes For This Year and
Got Arrested
To correct published misstatements
based on Incorrect Information re
garding the arrests of automobile
owners anil operators for using 1913
license lags upon their machines, the
State Highway Department to-day
issued a statement in which it is made
clear that there lias*been no inten
tion on the part of the department to
1 persecute automobilists, but rather a
desire not to take advantage of a rigid
intepretation of the law.
The most important fact brought
out is that in the arrests so far made
every accused owner or operator has
admitted that he had not applied for
a license until after January 9, or, in
other words, that he had violated the
law on that point.
It is pointed out by E. A. Jones,
| second deputy commissioner in charge
lof the automobile division, that no
I move, looking to the arrest of viola
tors of the law, was made until four
teen days after the time at which the
department would have been justi
fied in enforcing the letter of the law.
Mr. Jones said in discussing this phase
of the question:
"There has been a decided misun
derstanding regarding the action taken
last week against automobilists who
have been violating the law. The law
specifies that automobiles operated on
or after the first must bear license
tags for that year. Now, inasmuch, as
there are in round numbers 80,000 au
tomobiles to be licensed, it stands to
reason that a number of applications
must be made during the early part
of December, otherwise there will be
congestion at the end of the year in
getting out the licenses. If 60,000
persons applied for licenses by De
cember 31 of any year and if 45,000
of those 60,000 did not send in their
applications until December 26 and
the days following until December 31,
it would not be humanly possible for
the department, even working day and
night, Sundays and holidays, to get
all the licenses out and delivered by
January 1. For this reason an abso
lutely rigid interpretation of the law
has never been demanded, that is to
say, the police have never been re
quested to make arrests on January 1.
"This year, by working at all hours
of the day and night, the automobile
division of the State Highway Depart
ment succeeded on January 9 in
catching up to the applications then
on tile in the department. From Jan
uary 15 to the present time all licenses
have been sent out on the day on
which the application was received
the sole exception being in cases where
an error has been made by the appli
cant, in which case it was returned to
[him promptly for correction.
"It is significant that, in every cas«
where an arrest has been made for
violation of the law, the accused own
er or operator has admitted without
hesitation that application for 1911
license had not been made to the d(■-
partment prior to January 9. In case?
where new cars are purchased by per
sons not heretofore owning or operat
ing an automobile and in case wher
an owner or operator is absent froii;
the city on business or pleasure anO
does not return until after the first of
the year, it Is easy to understand whi
such applications for license should b.
deteyed. It would seem that ther<
Is no valid excuse for failure to mak
application to the State Highway De
partment prior to January 1 of am
given year.
"The State Highway Departmen'
has no desire to inflict injustice upon
[owners or operators of automobile.'
[and does not feel in the present in
stance that an injustice has been done
No move was made by the department
looking toward the enforcement ol
the law until fourteen days had
elapsed after the rush of applications
received during the closing days of
1913 had been met. If the police of
Philadelphia or of any other city took
It upon themselves to extend immunity
to those operating under a 1913 license
they acted tinder the mistaken impres
sion that the State Highway Depart
ment had not been able to get the
licenses out."
Thomas C. Boyd, registrar of the
automobile division of the State High
way Department, will go to Philadel
phia next week and appear at the con
tinued hearing to be held before Mag
istrate Harris in that city at which
those automobllists arrested last week
for violating the law will be arraign
