Old Home Town - 100 years ago

June 30, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for June 30, 1906: "Two deputy game wardens have suddenly left town because they figured in destruction of fish nets they recently confiscated in Eudora. The head game warden may be sued for more than $500, which the deputies lost when they burned the nets and then fled on the train. The trial where Jake Washington was charged and then exonerated for the net-destruction made the warden department look terribly bad and inept. : The Lawrence Bell Telephone operation here seems to be getting more and more modern and is providing a good service to citizens. : The World is eager to see Lawrence equipped with a street car system but has mighty little faith in the trackless trolley system that promoters are trying to get in operation here. The scheme is not nearly as attractive as it appears on the face."
