Summary: Kansas Governor Walter Stubbs drafts a letter to U. S. President William H. Taft regarding the collection of federal tax revenues from purveyors of illegal liquor in Kansas. This draft was in response to a letter by R. L. Cabell, Commissioner of Internal Revenue, U. S. Treasury Department, dated January 6, 1910. Kansas first adopted a constitutional amendment on prohibition in 1881 and by 1909 had outlawed the sale of liquor for medicinal purposes. At this time, Governor Stubbs was particularly frustrated by the federal government's refusal to prosecute Kansas bootleggers from whom it was collecting taxes on liquor sales.
