From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 7, 1906: "Many efforts are being made here to have proper observances of Abraham Lincoln's birthday on or around Feb. 12. : There is a lot of discussion here by members of both parties about the need for primary elections regarding the Second District U.S. Congress position. : Prospects seem strong for a major coal strike which would affect almost everyone adversely. : J.R. Griggs was elected president of the Lawrence Free Public Library Board and he is expected to do a good job at the new facility. : Alice Rohe from Lawrence "scooped" all the other New York reporters with her coverage of the Roosevelt-Longworth wedding, one of the major social stories of the year back East. : The jury came in with a solid verdict of guilty today for two men who ran an illegal joint-type club here. It was the second conviction of its kind in three days and the crackdown is widely hailed as great for the community and its welfare."
