Summary: In this speech, Kansas Governor Henry Allen declares the public is through being made the "goat" and there "will be knocking together of heads that will resound throughout the ages unless there is a speedy adjustment of the industrial conditions?" The governor's remarks came after a disruptive coal mine strike that led, in part, to the creation of the Kansas Court of Industrial Relations to arbitrate labor issues.
