Description

Letter from C. M. Meadows to Governor Lloyd C.Stark, requesting that Stark put him in touch with "some official authority in connection with these beer places." He reports that "a number of the fellows running such places are using their establishments for display rooms for [Judge James] Billings literature," as well as "boosting Pendergast and knocking [Stark's] administration." Meadows also writes that the Pendergast machine has been bad for property values and created "open and solicitious gambling houses, [horse] race rooms," and other issues.
