Today -100: September 25, 1918: Of Whites, flu, and lynchings

A conference is being held at Ufa in Bashkortostan, Russia, to form a single, unified anti-Bolshevik shadow government for Russia.

Headline of the Day -100: 

Another 150 cases of Spanish Flu reported in NY City yesterday, including 47 newly arrived immigrants, but Health Commissioner Royal Copeland isn’t alarmed.

There haven’t been a lot of lynchings lately, at least none that are reported in the NYT. But a 17-year-old black man, Sandy Reeves, is hanged by a mob in Georgia after allegedly assaulting a 3-year-old girl.
