Today -100: November 9, 1911: Of Tories and atrocities

A.J. Balfour resigns the leadership of the British Unionist (Conservative) party for “health reasons.”

The NYT counts as Socialist victories in the election in Ohio not only all those mayors but also the election of delegates to the constitutional convention committed to the initiative and referendum. All this is highly embarrassing to Taft, whose home state is Ohio (he too is round on the ends and high in the middle).

The State Dept plans to ignore Turkey’s appeal to it over Italian atrocities (the Italian embassy’s response: “The Arabs are the ones who are guilty of atrocities against our soldiers.”)
