The Testimony of the
GOVERNOR OF KANSAS
(Extracts from an article in the St. Lonia Poat
Dispatch of Jan. 30, 1916.
"Oov. Arthur Capper of Kansas Is looking- for a man who
can develop some method, psychological, mechanical or other
wise, to extract the truth from ordinarily good citlieni who are
customers of bootleggers." ,
"What Kansas needs most (said the governor) is someone
who will evolve some method of extracting the truth from the
patron of a bootlegger. The man who buys booze in Kansas
is given to an exaggerated sense of honor."
"It isn't a olub or lodge proposition, either. There are
ties of fraternity that would cause a man to refuse to divulge
the sale or dispensation of liquor in olub house. But there
' is nothing of this when the liquqr is purohased from ja boot
legger. In this case a man goes out hunting for liquor and
finds it in some drug store, or livery stable, or down on an
island, or some other out-of-the-way place where a man has
set up a temporary joint."
"But to get information from men as to whom sold the
liquor or a description of the place where the bootlegger was
operating is next to impossible."
"It is the most remarkable condition I have ever found in
Kansas and I did not know it was so general until I received
reports from the County Attorneys." i, .
That's what the Governor of Kansas
Says about the Failure of Prohibi
tion to Prohibit.
