Today -100: July 25, 1917: Of merciless rule, the masses, war orphans, and conscription


Headline of the Day -100: 


Lenin’s newspaper Pravda is suppressed.

Federal District Judge Learned Hand grants a preliminary injunction against the NY postmaster banning The Masses from the US mails.

The French state will assume guardianship of all war orphans.

The Canadian House of Commons passes a bill for conscription. The vote divides along linguistic lines.

The puppet Polish Council of State gives up the idea of fielding an independent Polish army, presumably because almost no one signed up for it, and will put the few who did sign up under German command.
