Today -100: September 2, 1910: Of gambling, women in court, lynchings, and reviews


New York bans all betting, whether “orally or otherwise.” The bill was originally aimed just at racing, but amendments got out of hand. The racing season was just aborted prematurely, before this law came into effect.

NYC opens a separate Women’s Night Court. Feminists are organizing against it.

A negro is lynched in Jackson Crossing, Mississippi. A crowd of 2,000 participates.

Headline: “Kaiser Reviews 30,000 Men.” Boy, everyone’s a critic.
