Arrested for over-joking! This story happened in Los Angeles in 1901, and strangely tried to tie the actions of these young men to the funeral of President McKinley following his assassination.
The details of their antics are hilarious, but they really sound like renters from hell. The Los Angeles Times published some of my favorite articles around the turn of the century, because they weren’t shy about using tabloid-esque stories to engage readers.
“On the hotel register one of them gave his residence as Borneo, and the other Zanzibar.”
“The floor was thick-strewn with playing cards and newspaper pictures of actresses. Over the picture molding was a frieze of women’s pictures collected from tobacco advertisements and illustrated magazines.”
“Empty tooth-wash cans were on the dresser, and kodak pictures of girls were scattered all over.”
Sounds like three of the thirstiest men in history, if you ask me.
