Today -100: June 14, 1913: Of suffrage, reigns of terror, and white sex

The US Senate’s Committee on Woman Suffrage reports favorably to the whole Senate for a constitutional amendment for women’s suffrage.

The US Senate committee investigating martial law in West Virginia hears from former Gov. William Glasscock, who declared that martial law. He says there was a “reign of terror” and that murders were going unprosecuted. He says the mine guards were a major problem, as well as the strikers, so he, um, got the mines to hire militiamen.
