From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 6, 1907: "All the old soldiers of the city are very interested in a service pension bill coming up soon before Congress. Many of the veterans of the Civil War are not drawing deserved pensions because they cannot prove they were disabled in the service of the government. : The Douglas County Good Roads Association is holding an important meeting at the courthouse this afternoon. Several plans are to be discussed to construct permanent highways throughout the county and to allow the county to do the work."
