#dailycolonst1915 - The news out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago:

[I have fallen behind in my "news" from the last century, so I am going to change the way I've been doing this. Instead of week-at-a-time updates, I am going to do as much as I can when I can until I have caught up to the current date. That might mean just one small update like this one, several small ones in one day, or several days in one update if I have a good chunk of time to work with.]

  • Tuesday, July 6, 1915 
    • Not much is going on at any of the the fronts. The casualty list is the shortest it has been in months at "only" 23 men. Local news is similarly uninteresting. The real fun is on the editorial page where we have some pretty snarky jabs at wartime censorship and wartime rumours.
