Today -100: November 4, 1911: Have to change the damn maps again

China’s Yunan Province declares independence.

A German newspaper reports that the Italians have executed 4,000 Arabs in Libya.

The French-German accord over Morocco has been signed. Germany recognizes France’s right to establish a “protectorate” over Morocco (a right Morocco hasn’t recognized, but then it hasn’t been asked), and is compensated with 96,525 square miles of Northern French Congo (the 1 million or so Congolese weren’t asked if they wanted to be ruled by Germans). France gets a little bit of Togo.
