Today -100: January 26, 1921: Some of them may not be married, and it is a terrible thing for them


Socialists and Fascists are killing each other in Modena and elsewhere in Italy. All gun-carry permits are revoked in the provinces of Modena and Bologna.

The Dept of Labor reports that between February 1919 and the end of 1920 it deported 505 “anarchists.”

A divorce case in London is heard, for the first time, by a jury of 6 men and 6 women, but one of the lawyers is upset that women see all the evidence: “Some of them may not be married, and it is a terrible thing for them.” So the document (a letter, I guess) is only shown to the male jurors.

A court martial begins in the requisitioned Dublin City Hall of two men for the murder on “Bloody Sunday” last November of a lieutenant who “for good and sufficient reasons” was living in Dublin under an assumed name.
