The New York Times
April 27, 1900
Going at an 18-Mile Clip on Broadway He Scattered Bicyclists.
The lively scattering of a crowd of bicyclists on the corner of One Hundred and Tenth Street and Broadway was caused about 10 o'clock last night by an automobile driven through the street from Amsterdam Avenue.
It wheeled rapidly into Broadway and down the East Drive on the wrong side. The bicyclists hurried out of the way, and Bicycle Policeman Walsh, who said it was going at a speed of eighteen miles an hour, shouted a warning to the two men in the machine.
The automobile was kept on the wrong side of the way to One Hundred and Eighth Street, then taken across to the west drive to One Hundred and Sixth Street, where Walsh, who had been pursuing and calling out to the men, stopped them. He escorted them, with the automobile, to the West One Hundredth Street Station, where he made a charge against the driver, who have his name as Darius V. Moses, twenty-eight years old, a sponge dealer, of the Hotel Cecil, One Hundred and Eighteenth Street and St. Nicholas Avenue.
Moses was indignant at his arrest. He was charged with driving the machine at a speed of eighteen miles an hour and on the wrong of the avenue. He left $20 in cash as security for his appearance in court.
