Age limit of IS years to be

Cars weighing more than 5500
pounds to be required to stop

License to be 93 a month for all
cars, with 25 cents a month ad
ditional for each seat over seven.
Number of passengers to be
limited to licensed seating capacity.
Holding that it is important that the
Jitney business be regulated along reas
onable lines without further delay.
Mayor Albee yesterday brought about
a decision in the City Council on near
ly all questions not settled heretofore
regarding regulation. The proposed
jitney ordinance again was sent back
for redrafting. It will be returned to
the Council for final consideration and
passage possibly tomorrow.
The majority of the members of the
Council decided to require every Jit
ney driver to pass an examination to
show his ability to operate a machine
safely and to appoint one or two auto
mobile experts to make inspections of
the machines at least once each month.
To raise money to defray the cost of
the inspection, the Jitneys will be
licensed. It is expected the amount of
license will be sufficient not only to
pay for the inspection, but also to
provide a fair-sized fund to add to the
standing fund now on hand for the
maintenance and repair of streets.
18 Tra Age Limit Fixed.
Inspection of the jitneys will be con
fined at the outset to tests of the
brakes to see that they are in proper
working order. The inspector who will
do the work will inspect each car as
often as possible. It is probable that
later an effort will be made to inspect
other parts of the machines used as
Jitneys. The method of examination
of drivers has not been decided 'upon.
It has been settled, however, that a
person to pass the examination will
have to be more than 18 years of age,
will have to understand the city traffic
rules and will have to be an experienced
The license fee decided upon is S3 a
month for all cars, with 25 cents a
seat for each seat over seven in a
machine. In the operation of the
large auto buses a provision will be
Inserted in the ordinance requiring
hem to come to a full stop before
crossing train tracks. This is required
now of streetcars. Cars weighing up
to 5500 pounds will not be required to
stop. Others will. This weight is
considered the dividing point in weight
between the touring cars and the large
Protection to Patrons Tussles.
About the only point that has not
been cleared up by the Council yet is
the matter of insurance to protect
patrons of the jitneys in case of ac
cident. Commissioner Brewster recom
mended yesterday the creation of a
fund from the license fees exacted
from the Jitneys. City Attorney La
Hoche says he has heard that some
of the insurance companies are plan
ning a new insurance policy to cover
accidents of the kind. The question
of insurance will be considered later.
11. P. Jones, who heads the Auto
Transit Welfare Association, an or
ganization of about 260 of the jitneys,
declared to the Council yesterday that
the drivers of jitneys should be ex
amined. He said one-fourth of the
drivers do not know the traffic laws
or rules and many of them know but
little about operating a car. For that
reason, he said, many jitney accidents
occur and the Jitney business as a
whole receives a set-back.

assembly and laid down the law to
them. He told them he would give
them a few days of grace in which to

they didn"t he would declare a block

While the students and faculty were
thinking the problem over, it was
finally agreed among all concerned to
allow the June. la. class to formulate
m set of rules to govern the students.
Professor Herdman has agreed to the
plan, and this morning the stu
