Tribune Tuesdays: Little Trips into the Country

From: The Oakland Tribune, 06 March 1912, Page 3, Column 7

Objects to Way He Obtained Free Rides

The novel method of obtaining buggies and cabs and automobiles to go out on many little trips into the country by representations that he was the agent of a well known firm of Oakland, is declared by Roy Garrrison [sic] of 2720 San Pablo avenue, to have been practiced by Walter L. Howe of 1610 Bonita avenue, Berkeley, for the past few weeks. Garrison had Howe arrested on a technical charge of violating an ordinance as a result of the alleged custom of the man, and the case was called before Judge Samuels this morning. Howe pleaded not guilty and the case was put over till tomorrow for further hearing.
