July 15 in San Antonio history...

1898
A Southern Pacific passenger train coming into this city from Houston made the last 57 miles between Luling and San Antonio at the rate of a mile a minute.  One of the passengers said, "Why,  I couldn't count the telegraph poles!"

1928
For 10 years there has been no regular police force in San Antonio.  This came to light yesterday when it was revealed that none of the men employed in that period have been confirmed by the city commission as required by the city charter.

1949
San Antonio's Transit Service employees vote to strike.
