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.
