Drinking bootleg liquor, Gidlow wrote in her journal, helped Chung reveal more about herself.20 The growing intimacy of their rela- tionship was sealed two days later by an exchange of good-bye presents and a kiss. Gidlow reflected: “I believe she was really sorry to see me go and heaven knows she is one of the few I part from with a pang. She gave me a pint bottle of bourbon, Government sealed, 160 proof and—what I value many times more, a spontaneous kiss on the mouth. I had

Within this array of problems, the final pro- vincial report gave particular attention to the growth of alcohol consump- tion and bootlegging that followed the state's 1894 introduction of a liquor monopoly. Together with outwork, this explosion of public drinking was

Their reforms pro- vided a new administrative framework for managing urban economic growth and undermined the supply of resources traditionally available to the machine. At the same time, their political victories contributed to a self- reinforcing sequence of class formation among
