Today -100: January 27, 1923: Beware of Ruhr indigestion

The French arrest Düsseldorf’s bürgermaster and police chief, as well as the Prussian governor of the district for not suppressing anti-French demonstrations and for refusing to carry out French orders. Supposedly the police chief, being held responsible for his force going out on strike, told General Simon “You French will find the Ruhr a tough morsel to digest. Beware of Ruhr indigestion.”

Bavaria declares martial law to prevent Hitler holding a rally.

The Connecticut Legislature fails, for the 3rd time, to ratify the 18th Amendment (Prohibition).

Headline of the Day -100:  

A Klonvoklation is held in a building which is rented out for meetings at night but houses the Brooklyn Traffic Court during the day (the Klan rented it under the name “Brooklyn Circle Club”). They’re charged with disorderly conduct (no elaboration on that) and possession of a blackjack and a bottle of whisky.
