"There is more hardship and distress

had been so arranged that there was

repeal and leave the city without, any
law to regulate the use of wheels in the
city limits for seven, months in the year,"
hence all walks and streets in the city
are open for their use during that time.
Fprther, it is my opinion that if ordi
nance No. SO was enforced.and all persona
using wheels without bells or whistles,
and riding at night without lamps, ' and
at any time at a greater speed than that
allowed by the said ordinance, were
prosecuted and punished as provided for
in said ordinance, that the results would
be much more satisfactory. At present
ordinance No. 80 stands on our books as
a dead letter ; tor some reason it is a
failure.' If, in the attached ordinance
the word-"Octobei" in the third line of
section 1, and the words "ordinance or''
in the first line of section 3, had been
omitted it would have received my ap
I would reccommend to the city coun
cil that all matter pertaining to wheels
be gathered into one ordinance and
given proper consideration by advising
and consulting with those who, use
wheels in their business in a legitimate
way, making it strong enough to cover
all the points affecting the legitimate
riders, and so it will punish, if prose
cuted, the reckless riders - that have
neither business ' nor brains. Until
that time, Ordinance No. 80 will answer
all purpose. ;
I recommend "to your consideration,
the fact that Dersoos on both sides ot
the-question are citizens, neighbors and
tax payers, and I suggest that each
should manifest due consideration for
the rights and interests of the others;
and that the council should onlv take
such action as shall be fair and equit
able to both sides. -Dated
this 1st day of September, 1899.

LAST ORDINANCE PREVAILS.
Ed. Union-Gazette. "It is under
stood that Mayor Crawfoid has vetoed
the bicycle ordinance. His objection, it
is said, is based on the fact that the new
ordinance will repeal the old ordinances.
There is no general repealing clause in
the new ordinance and it w-ill only repeal
by implication any existing ordinances
that are in direct conflict with it. There
can be bo conflict betwean the new ordi
nance and any existing ordinance on the
subject as to the rate of speed at which
wheelers may ride and none as to what
sidewalks they may" use except during
the months designated in the new ordi
nance, to-wit : June. July, August, Sep
tember and October. In fact both ordi
nances will be in force except when they
conflict and in that case the last ordi
nance will prevail, Eyeryone knows
that the speed ordinance is a dead letter
and never, .can be enforced. A large
number -ofjlhe younger wheelers regu
