Dropcap_r_1922 epublican William Taft gets the news that he has been nominated as the party's presidential candidate. This sequence of photos must have seemed revolutionary for 1908. (And yes, this photo reminds me of one of my all-time favorite headlines: "Says Bad Words Into Phone"). 

Also note the story about fighting in Mexico between Yaqui Indians and U.S. and Mexican troops. Read about Yaqui Easter ceremonies here.
