FIFTH AVENUE TRAFFIC BILL.

The New York Times
February 24, 1900


Special to The New York Times.

ALBANY, Feb. 23.—One of the Republican members of the Assembly Cities Committee made the prediction to-day that the bill introduced by Mr. Weekes of New York to keep trucks off Fifth Avenue between 2 and 7 o'clock in the afternoon, between October and June, would never be reported out of committee.  In giving his reasons for this belief he said:
"The Republican Party would not dare pass such a bill.  It would be class legislation of the worst kind and would meet with the disapproval of the great mass of the people in New York.  There is a clause in the bill permitting express companies to deliver goods on the avenue during the hours in which trucks and other delivery wagons are prohinited from being on the avenue.  Why should this discrimination be made?  The bill has no chance of being even reported."

Another member of the committee said that the bill had not a single friend in the committee and would never be heard of.
