Members Will Aid in Prosecuting
Reckless Chauffeur.

The Automobile Club at a meeting at the Coates house last night discountenanced such recklessness as was exhibited by the occupants of a motor car which was driven into a spring wagon Tuesday night, resulting in the death of Pearl Gochenour and the injury of four others. Several members of the club spoke with feeling against men who would be guilty of such recklessness and apparent cruelty and the sentiment of the club was to offer a reward for the capture and conviction of the miscreants. As a matter of fact, the club did take such action, but it was recalled owing to insufficient funds, the treasury having been depleted earlier in the evening through the purchase of property which the club has had in contemplation for two years.

A resolution was adopted pledging every member of the club to aid in the arrest and conviction of the men responsible for Tuesday night's accident. The resolution represents the unanimous sentiment of the club. Jerome Twitchell, as sponsor of the resolution, said that it was the duty of every member of the club to lend his assistance, in so far as he could, in aiding the authorities to capture and convict these criminals.

"While the club is not in a position to offer financial assistance at this time," he said, "we should by all means offer our moral support."
