[n.p.]: [Hartman & Cadick?], 1894. First editions. Self wrappers. Good to very good.. 8 pp., 8 pp., 8 pp. The mid-term elections of 1884 were a disaster for the Democrats led by Grover Cleveland. Republicans and Populists, in large part due to the efforts of Joseph Weeks Babcock (1850-1909), a Republican Congressman from Wisconsin, who helped organize the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee in 1893 and was a major force in routing the Democrats in the 1894 House elections which cost the Democrats 113 of their 218 seats. They are most likely printed by Hartman & Cadick, Republican printers. All follow the same format of quoting leading figures and using bold face type. 1: [Caption title] "If the Laboring Class be to Perish, I Say, the Whole Nation." A the head of the title: [No. 1 - From the Congressional Record]. The caption title is from the English Reformer William Cobbett followed by "You cannot reduce the laborer to a state of starvation and degradation without also destroying national prosperity," a quote from Joseph Norton Dolph (1835-1897), Senator from Oregon, from one of his many speeches quoted here.
