TitleResults of Commission Government in Kansas City, Kansas
AbstractArticle about the commission form of city government in Kansas City, Kansas, and the government's relation to the city's tax revenues, economy, and work force, with some description of the prohibition of alcoholic beverages on the Kansas side of the state line.
NotesKansas City, the metropolis of Kansas, was, at the time it adopted the commission government, the largest city in the United States to adopt the plan. The population of Kansas City [Kansas] as shown by the Federal census of 1910 was 86,000. The city is one of the largest in the world, if not the largest, in which the sale of intoxicating liquors is prohibited. ..The workers in these factories [packing houses, flour mills, foundries, cooper shops, soap factories, etc."] and the employees of the railroads constitute the bulk of the population of Kansas City, Kansas."
