100 Years Ago – 1914

January 21 — An argument as to the lights that should be burning when an automobile is standing caused a search through the acts of 1913 at police headquarters last night and a call for the city attorney. The acts show that an automobile left standing should have a tail light and one front light burning, from one-half hour after sun down until one-half hour before sun up. Police state that arrests will be made if the practice of standing automobiles without burning lights continues.

January 22 — After hearing the testimony of Miss Mary Ham and Miss Elsie Poor in police court yesterday, frequenters of public dance halls, who revealed conditions in these dances, Mayor Mellett ordered Chief of Police Mountain to see that all public dances are stopped.
