April 29, 1908


Above, what could be healthier than beer except for cigarettes? OK, Helmar cigarettes at least didn’t claim to be good for you. I overlooked Emma Goldman’s appearance in Los Angeles, so the pages are a day late. Naturally, The Times didn’t hold back on its opinion of her. But at least we covered her speech.

Quotes of the Day:

Questioner: "Do you believe in Jesus Christ?

Goldman: No, I don’t. I don’t believe he was the son of God. I believe he had more sense  as to come from God. I thought he came from a woman."

Questioner: "Well he taught perfect obedience to the law. He said to render unto Caesar those things which were Caesar’s."

The hall then broke into a small uproar.

"The fact is, Emma is a fat, well-fed, red-faced little Dutch woman who is out for cash." –The Times, on Emma Goldman
