Today -100: September 4, 1910: Of trolleys and figs

The Columbus, Ohio trolley company gets a temporary injunction forbidding the striking Association of Street Car Men handing out printed manner warning people not to ride the trolleys, picketing stations or stopping points, or intimidating employees.

In Bari, Italy, a mob of 2,000, displeased by an ordinance prohibiting the eating of figs because of a cholera scare, wreck the local sanitation office and beat up the employees.


64,000 Russians have died during the current cholera outbreak. Russians must eat a lot of figs, or something.
