TOPICS OF THE TIMES.
The New York Times
January 15, 1900
In a recent letter from one of our correspondents there was a valuable hint in connection with the Fifth Avenue anti-truck campaign. It lay in a reference to the fact that a very appreciable proportion of the vehicles used for commercial purposes in the city are owned, not by the men who drive them, but by persons who themselves ride in pleasure carriages and are directly interested in keeping the avenue free from industrial traffic. Now, the employes of these persons would obey any reasonable order they might issue, and an order to keep off of Fifth Avenue as much as possible would not only be reasonable, but it would go more than a little ways toward reducing the present annoyances.
