100 years ago today, the 44th annual reunion of the “Dickinson Guards,” a Civil War regiment known as the 89th New York Volunteers, was held at the state Armory yesterday. 18 survivors of the famous old organization answered the roll call.

The first annual banquet for salesmen of the Tabulating Machine Company of Endicott was held in the Arlington Hotel last night.

This has been an unusually dry summer, and as a result the Chenango River is now at an unprecedented low level.

Finally, last night a gang of vagrants broke into some railroad cars at Upper Court Street and slept there. Now the railroad police have launched a war on vagrants in an attempt to keep hoboes away from this area.

And that was the news 100 years ago.
