The Evening Item was a daily newspaper published by the Wright Brothers' Company, Item Publishing Co. This paper, published from April 1890 through July 1890, focused on world and local events. This Saturday edition of The Evening Item was published in two separate parts, but those parts have been combined here for ease of reading. The front page of this issue features stories about an unidentified plague in British Honduras, proposed amendments to the legislated-executive-judicial bill in the United States Senate, news of the previous day's events in the United States House of Representatives, and more. On the second page there is a small commentary about Harvard College adopting "a resolution refusing the admission of women to the Divinity School of that college." On the ninth page there is a story about capturing and dissecting a Gila monster. This Saturday edition of The Evening Item was published in two separate parts, but those parts have been combined here for ease of reading. Also included in this two part issue are short stories, anecdotes, fashion news, local and regional news, advertisements and more.
