Hearing to Fund the Courthouse in DeFuniak Springs

From Hearings Before a Special Subcommittee of the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds, House of Representatives, on Bills for Public Buildings at [among other places] De Funiak Springs, Fla. (Statement of Mr. Kehoe), February 5 , 1919, Washington, D.C., page 50-52.

According to the Preface of this volume of transcripts, the hearings were held in anticipation of an omnibus public building bill. “Owing to the congested condition of the legislative calendar,” the Bill was not brought before Congress in this session of Congress, but it was anticipated that it would be reported out in the next session. It appears Congressman Kehoe was seeking funds for a new courthouse building although that is not clearly stated.
