In 1906, Early was elected to the city council representing the First Ward, proceeding W. F. Long. He was again elected in 1908 and served until 1910, when he was succeeded by L. T. Hanckel Jr.

In 1910, he lost his squab barn and over 3,000 pigeon's to a fire.[1]

In the early 1900s, the pigeon industry had two branches; the breeding of squabs for market, and the raising of breeding stock for sale.
