Feb. 22, 1910: Thomas A. Montez is accused of helping smuggle 14 Chinese men who were found in a boxcar loaded with staves. The cost of being smuggled into the U.S. is about $250 [$5,707.53 USD 2008] each, The Times says.

And boxer James Jeffries is in Los Angeles before heading to the San Francisco area April 1 to train for his next fight. Remember that on the Fourth of July, 1910, Jeffries was defeated by Jack Johnson, who became the first African American heavyweight world champion.
