Today -100: June 4, 1911: Of judsons, shaftings, and death threats


Judson Harmon, Democratic governor of Ohio, will run for president in 1912. Judson fever... catch it!

Dirty-Sounding-But-Not-Really-Dirty Headline of the Day -100: “Whirled to Death in Shafting.” Actually a horrible cement-related death.

Texas Governor Oscar Branch Colquitt will deliver a series of anti-prohibition speeches. He has received so many death threats (one involving dynamite) that he will travel with a body guard.
