Speed Fixed for Automobiles on the
Cliff Drive.

Alderman Launder, Hartman and Halpin were driven over the parks and boulevards and Cliff drive in automobiles at speeds varying from six to forty miles an hour, yesterday. The aldermen decided that six miles an hour is too slow, and forty miles an hour too fast. Therefore, they decided that eight miles an hour is a proper and safe limit for automobiles that traverse Cliff drive and they will recommend that speed when the ordinance is reported out Monday night for passage giving automobiles use of Cliff drive half days on Tuesdays and Saturdays and all Thursdays.
