Prohibition

and

Increased Taxation

A Message from
   Governor Capper of Kansas

 

***"Kansas, in common with other states, has experienced in the last decade an increase in the cost of government and the burdens of taxation, far beyond the increase of population. In twelve years public expenditures have increased 68 per cent in the state; 77 per cent in the county; 153 per cent in the city; 119 per cent in the township; 132 per cent for schools."***

 

 

     This quotation is taken word for word from an official message from Governor Capper of Kansas to the Legislature of Kansas, 1915 session. The message is dated Jan. 12, 1915, is signed "Arthur Capper, Governor," and appears on pages 11- 17, of the official Senate Journal, State of Kansas, 1915.

 

The attention of the reader is called to the fact that taxes have increased enormously in Kansas, a prohibition state.
