The Wyoming Tribune for October 16, 1916: Carranza's family in flight. . . or were they?
Readers if the always sensational Wyoming Tribune learned, in the afternoon Monday edition, that the family of Carranza was in flight, suggesting he was about to fall from power.
Well, he wasn't. He'd remain firmly in power, and in fact at that time was working on his proposals for a new Mexican constitution. Readers of the Tribune, however, were probably pretty worried.
On other matters, Charles E. Hughes declared himself to be a man of peace, and the Wilson Administration denied that the US was somehow responsible for the execution of Roger Casement, who was sentenced due to his role in the recent Irish Nationalist's uprising against the United Kingdom.
