The Houston Chronicle illsettsscs the
above subject in tho following force
ful manner: J
The motor ear is a blessing to tho
children of parents who can afford to
own it but tho child's place Is not at
the steering wheel.
Saturday evening at Bell avenue
and dan faclnto street two ladies
driving in a cardiage.wero run down by
a motor car which was being operated
by a boy only 10 or 12 years old. Both
the ladles Were severely "hurt Tholr
carriage Was wrecked. They were tho
victims of the disregard of an ordi
nance wiucii is uaseu upon common
sense and Bound regard for the Safety
of clfizens. That'-ordinance prohibit?
children under IS years of ago to op
erate motor cars.
A good many boys under IS arc
quite as competent to run a car as
grown men. To same of this charac-
ter the mayor has granted special per-
mits which are exceptions to the gen-
eral rule of the ordinance. Other
boys seeing cars run by their young
friends who in their opinion arc no
better qualified than themselves nat
urally think they too have a right to
be excepted from the general rule-
Parents with a pride very human and
pardonable are prone to permit .young
boyB and In some cases young girls
to run big cais contrary to the law.
There should be a tightening up on
this matter all along the line. It-
would be far .better that all Special
permits be withdrawn and none Issued
hereafter than that one citizen should
be injured through the carelessness
or want of judgment of a juvenile dri
ver. Especially is it the duty of pa-
icnts owning motor cars to prohibit
children from driving them through
the public streets.
The city police are vigorously pros
ecuting .car owmrb'who violate the
speed ordinance and this is right.
Now let the ordinance against tho
driving of cars by children be equally

sick porflon Is peculiarly sensitive- to
