Today -100: June 28, 1922: Of hostages, credits, and parking lots

Mexican rebel Gen. Gorozave, whoever that may be, is holding 40 American employees of the Cortez Oil Company in the Tampico district hostage, as well as the company’s equipment, demanding 15,000 pesos, which is the equivalent of some money.

At the Hague Conference, Russia says it won’t talk about debts or property until there’s some sort of agreement on credits. Guess what subjects the other powers are saying should come first.

This time, none of the Russian delegates are wearing top hats.

Alderman Rudolph Hannock of the Bronx has an idea for the Board: public parking stations. You know, parking lots.
