100 Years Ago is brought to you by Broome Recycles.

100 years ago today, it was learned today that the great-great grandsons of Daniel S. Dickinson, Broome County’s great statesman, may come here to unveil the memorial statue to his memory at the service to be held at Courthouse Square on Memorial Day.

Construction of the new Daniel S. Dickinson School in the First Ward is moving ahead, and the school is expected to be ready to open in 1925.

Police believe a gang of automobile bandits is operating in this city. Cars are being stolen here in Binghamton and taken to other parts of the state for sale.

A meat market on Washington Street was broken into last night and ransacked. The thief made off with some pens and pencils and about 30 pennies.

And that was the news 100 years ago.
