Today -100: September 8, 1916: Supplying the ginger

The US Senate ratifies the purchase of the Danish West Indies and its inhabitants.

The Republican Party has asked Theodore Roosevelt to play a bigger role in the Hughes campaign and make more speeches in marginal states to “take off his coat and supply the ginger which is lacking in Candidate Hughes’s speeches,” as one member of the campaign committee put it.

Headline of the Day -100:

Inexperienced elevated operators employed during the strike in New York, not actual green... elevated... men.

The Allen County, Ohio, Grand Jury indicts 16 members of the Lima, Ohio lynch mob that assaulted the sheriff. 

Henry Ford sues the Chicago Tribune for calling him an anarchist for firing his workers in the National Guard deployed to the Mexican border (which, too, also, he didn’t actually do).
