From W. W. Filkin to Lloyd C. Stark

Description: 

Letter from W. W. Filkin to Governor Lloyd C. Stark regarding voter intimidation at Kansas City elections. He writes that the "presence of the police of this city is no protection," and reports that in his experience as a Republican election judge, he was "insulted, cursed many times, ... threatened to be taken for a ride and finally the next morning was refused admittance behind the counter on which the registration books were lying."
