PostPosted: Fri Mar 11, 2011 5:16 am    Post subject: I love news from the early 20th century.

For those of you who do not know, I am working on my thesis paper for my history bachelors at CSUEB. I like to share funny old news and stuff. Here is some fun stuff if found in the Pacific Wine, Spirit and Beer Review (all in the spirit of the anti prohibition movement)

CHOICE OF DEATHS.

Hygienist (Prohibitionist) to British Soldier—Do you not know

that whiskey has killed more men than bullets have?

British Soldier.—I don't say that it hasn't, but I would thank

you very much if you would extract the three bullets that I have

in my body and allow me to put three shots of whisky in my

stomach.—"Vinicultura Espagnola."



Canned Whisky in Arizona.—A lively demand for can openers

revealed to State officials at Phoenix the latest scheme for violating

the Arizona state prohibition law. Large quantities of cans have

been found, labeled tomatoes but containing whiskey. These cans

have found an extensive market, according to investigating

officers.




And one that I found a few weeks ago and posted in the OT thread:

Sausalito News, Volume 37, Number 28, 9 July 1921

JURY IS ACCUSED OF ABSORBING EVIDENCE

Waukegan, 111.—It took a Jury twenty hours to decide that Joseph Hoffman, proprietor of a summer hotel at Fox lake, was guilty of violating the prohibition law When they retired to the jury room the jurors took with them the evidence three quarts of bonded whiskey and one quart of port wine. When the jurors finally emerged from their deliberations they were stepping high and wide. "You have a verdict, gentlemen?" queried Judge P. L. Persons. "You shald sum'pn, yeah indeed " was the response.

A bailiff was dispatched to salvage the "evidence." it had dwindled to a teaspoonful.

"If there had been less evidence a verdict would have been reached more quickly," commented the Court sadly. '






There are sometimes mistakes in the text as it converts the pdf to text. If you want to actually read it off the news paper, here is the link

After vacillating and perplexing rulings and interpretations relative to the Volstead Act, the final resulting outcome of today is so contrary to earlier expectations that to ask why this is so, is not only permissible but justifiable.


translation: WTF MATES?!
