Thomas Edison endorses Theodore Roosevelt for president, declaring himself a “natural Bull Mooser.”
The Great Powers (note: the US was not a Great Power; Italy was. Huh.) are working on a deal for the Balkans. They would authorize Austria and Russia to guarantee the territorial integrity of the Ottoman Empire (i.e., that the countries of the anti-Turkish coalition would gain nothing from a war) and that reforms would be implemented in Macedonia. However, Bulgaria and the other would-be belligerents really have their hearts set on some bloodshed (assuming that the war hasn’t already started – the LAT reports a fight on the Turkish-Montenegrin border).
