State Officer Opens War on Drivers Failing to Obey Rules.
MT. RAINIER, Md. Dec. 26.—In reply to the request made to State officials for assistance in Mt. Rainier's efforts to prevent automobile accidents, State Officer D. F. Bowman has been ordered to the town for duty. The first evening he reported four were arrested and haled before Judge Robert E. Joyce. G. D. Gardner, of 518 H street northwest, Washington, was charged with failing to stop five feet in rear of a street car that had stopped to discharge passengers. Gardner paid $10 and costs but told the court he was going to note an appeal, inasmuch as he was facing the car and could not stop in the rear thereof. John M. Hooe, who had only one tag on the front of his car and who did not have his registration card or driver's permit, paid a total of $13.85 in fines on the three charges. Joseph McGowan, who was running with his cut-out open, was fined $5 and costs. Julius Gerhardt, of Brentwood, paid Judge Joyce $10 and costs for driving a car without an operator's permit.
