From the Lawrence Daily World for May 17, 1908: "W.M. Chandler is filing for $5,000 against J.D. Bowersock for the loss of a hand on the job at the paper mill. A jury is due to make the decision on the award. : Applications for teaching positions in the city schools will be reviewed this month and there appear to be more applicants than there will be openings. : Kansas got a big chunk of the 'Pork Barrel Bill' that has passed the House to provide federal buildings and sites."
