October 2 in San Antonio history…

1915 – World War I
Count von Bernstorff, the German ambassador delivered to Secretary Lansing today a note from the German government concerning the Arabic case.  It is learned reliably that the note furnished a basis for further negotiations and from this it was inferred that Germany was anxious to submit to arbitration the question of whether or not the Arabic was engaged in a hostile act at the time she was torpedoed and how much indemnity must be paid if the judgement is against the German commander.

1913
From 7 p.m. last night to 7 a.m. this morning 4.15 inches of rain has fallen on San Antonio, causing the San Antonio River and most other rivers in the county to overflow their banks.  The flood waters have claimed the life of a mother and her three small children near San Jose Mission.  Most of downtown San Antonio is also flooded.

1980
Police raid a northside residence suspected of being a brothel, arresting two 23-year old Houston women under prostitution charges and confiscating a “trick list” of customers.  Many of these are suspected to be local governmental officials.

1995
