About this Item

8 p. A tiny pamphlet (5 5/8" x 4"), paper, presenting the Republican platform in 1888. It celebrates the memories of Lincoln, Grant, Garfield, Logan, Arthur, Logan, and Conkling, and includes a special tribute to Sheridan. It notes the abolition of slavery in Brazil, "which completes the abolition of slavery throughout the two American continents," and hopes that Ireland will soon achieve home rule. It touches upon a number of subjects still relevant in the 2000s: security of Americans; trade and protectionism; taxes; importation of Chinese and other labor; capital combines in trusts; unfair and discriminatory transportation rates, charges, etc., and "unfair discrimination among the states." It affirms it support of the Homestead Act and the rights of territories, meeting certain conditions, to become states; it supports passage of bills enabling Washington, North Dakota, and Montana territories to become states, and pledges to help New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho, and Arizona territories to achieve statehood as soon as possible. It decries Mormonism as a menace, "too dangerous to be longer suffered," and intends to stamp out polygamy. It supports both silver and gold. It wants postage reduced to one cent per ounce. It supports free schools, temperance, and morality, and many other items (shipping, merchant marine, the navy, the public debt, soldiers' pensions, the Monroe Doctrine, the Nicaragua Canal, fisheries, Canadian relations, honest government, sound finance, "the freedom and purity of the ballot," pension relief, reform of Civil Service)! What a lot is packed into this little statement! Excellent condition. Bookseller Inventory # 724vf3
