Today -100: March 3, 1915: Of exiles, coal, stealing from Indians, and attachés


The German occupation authorities in Belgium claim the tax they’re imposing on exiles was suggested by Belgians.

Germany will stop allowing the US ships bringing relief supplies to Belgium to re-coal at English ports.

Kate Barnard, the Oklahoma state commissioner of charities, appeals for the defeat of 13 bills pending in the OK Legislature, all designed to steal land from Indians by mortgaging orphan’s property, preventing proper legal notices being issued, etc.

The US military attaché in Berlin is being recalled, supposedly so he can make reports on the military situation in person that he can’t entrust to cables, but how could the timing not be related to the accusations against the German military attaché in Washington?
