Letter from Ellison Neel to Albert P. Newell in reply to Newell's letter of April 15. Neel writes that Kansas City is suffering in many ways "from the strangle-hold that has been obtained upon it by a bunch of men that operate a system that is primarily for their own benefit." He also writes that the machine has "more or less of a monopoly on all public work" and hurts local businesses.
