Extract from speech of Hon. E.M.Pollard of Nebraska, in daily Congressional Record, March 25, 1908.

np (Washington D.C.) 1908 Extract printed on a card 9.5 x 4.5. Light wear, soiling, staining, ink name and address on one side, creasing else good. Pollard, a Republican from Nebraska, indicates that the election of Grover Cleveland, a Democrat, was the direct cause of the Panic of 1893 and that when McKinley, a Republican, was elected in 1896, the fortunes of the country were reversed and everything was rosy. This diatribe goes on to support the Dingley Act which was passed during the McKinley administration; the act or tariff, was anti free trade. He states that the farmers enjoyed enormous prosperity under the Dingley Act and now the Democratic party wants to revise it -- which of course means that the farmers will suffer tremendously. He states " . . . The farmers of the country are going to see to it that the party is in power that will revise it along protective lines."
