Today -100: May 4, 1918: Let the soldiers and munition workers hear


When the Prussian Diet rejected equal suffrage yesterday, one Socialist deputy exclaims “Let the soldiers and munition workers hear!”

Persia unilaterally annuls the many treaties imposed on it over the years, and repudiates the 1907 treaty between Russia and Britain establishing “spheres of influence” in the country, to which Persia, oddly enough, was not a party.

Now that it’s independent, Finland is looking for a king, as was the custom. Well, the German-oriented right-wing is. The rest would prefer a republic, but the right is currently in control and they’ve reached out to Duke Adolf Friedrich of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, who’d probably appreciate the shorter title. AF is the former governor of German Togoland.
