Pamphlet, 8vo, stapled, 36 pp. Mitchell's name penciled on title, some creasing normal aging and browning; otherwise very good. John H. Mitchell (1835-1905) was a rather corrupt U.S. senator from Oregon who served three times between 1873 and 1905. Among his many accomplishments he managed to get himself indicted and convicted in the "Oregon Land Scandals" at the time he was a sitting senator of the United States. Mitchell managed to get himself fined and a six months prison sentence for election fraud in 1901. However, he managed to die during the appeal process from complications related to a tooth extraction. On the positive side he actually managed to address a young National Geographic Society in April 1895. The present title addresses a bill before the Senate on constructing a harbor on the Pacific Coast. downfalldictionary website. (Inventory #: 106354)
