In this letter, George W. Jacobs of Philadelphia, asks President Wilson to consider a system of county and state courts for the purposes of settling disputes between capital and labor. A copy of this letter was sent to Kansas Governor Henry Allen on November 11, 1919 and in January 1920, Kansas did pass legislation that created the Court of Industrial Relations. This established a tribunal that would decide on labor problems between employers and their employees.
