Sept. 16, 1910, Bankers Convention
Sept. 16, 1910: And what could possibly be interesting about a bankers’ convention? Notice the dates: Oct. 3-7. So if William J. Burns, head of the Burns National Detective Agency, comes to Los Angeles for the convention and arrives a few days early, he’ll be here  when The Times is bombed on Oct. 1. And “Goo-Goo” Mayor George Alexander can hire him to investigate the bombing. Which is exactly what happened.
