September 27 in San Antonio history…

August Siemering and H. Pollmar begin publishing the San Antonio Express (right) as a weekly with a subscription price of $6 a year. It’s printed on the press of Siemering’s other paper, the German-language Freie Presse für Texas, in offices at 138 E. Commerce St. The paper is tabloid-size with five-column pages and advertising on the front. The first editor is Judge William E. “Fiery” Jones.

The cornerstone of the newly renovated San Fernando Cathedral is laid.

Stinson Field is dedicated.
