Today -100: April 16, 1910: Of bribery and imperialism


New US Senator Le Roy Percy of Mississippi, addressing the forthcoming trial of a man who attempted to bribe a state legislator to vote for him, is offering to put his seat up for election by the people, Democratic people anyway, in a primary against his rival for the office, former Governor Vardaman, assuming Vardaman accepts.

The Massachusetts Legislature passes a resolution against the US expanding its territory through conquest.
