Brief Update

Working on a few things for the site, including a Wiki. A post on the 1890 election which went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court will be coming soon.

In the meantime, here are some headlines from Nebraska newspapers 100 years ago, March 28, 1919:

“Women’s Rights In League,” Omaha Daily Bee. The proposed League of Nations covenant will include a provision recognizing women’s suffrage.

“Grammer Innocent Says Alson B. Cole,” Evening State Journal. A convicted murderer repudiates his confession which said the son-in-law of the victim hired him to commit the murder.

“Stephens Chides Sloan For Bitter Attack On Wilson,” Lincoln Star. Ex-Congressmen Dan Stephens and Charles Sloan engage in a war of words over Sloan’s remarks which came close to accusing President Wilson of treason.
