A commissioner from the office of internal revenue, R. L. Cabell, United States Treasury Department, writes Kansas Governor Walter Stubbs to clarify his concern over the issuing of federal revenue stamps to purveyors of illegal liquor in Kansas. 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.
