Today -100: August 4, 1911: Of three-time losers, arbitration, monkeys, and cows

William Jennings Bryan says he will never run for president again. And he won’t.

The US signs arbitration treaties with both Britain and France. Even matters of “honor” are to be settled through arbitration.

Upton Sinclair announces that he plans to write a book about the horrors of prisons. What on earth did they do to him during his 18 hours at the New Castle Workhouse?

Headline of the Day -100 (LAT): “A Monkey Chews Gum.”

Headline of the Day -100: “Taft to Exhibit Cow.”
