Product Information

Hopkins, Aphonso Alva. James B. Lyon. 1897. 32 pages. A speech given by Mr. Hopkins, Former Professor of Political Economy and Prohibition in the American Temperence University. It seems the Temperence Society was not very happy with the outcome of the election of President Mckinley. They felt that prohibition of the liquor traffic to be the largest moral, financial and political issue of the times.  McKinley’s ‘Front Porch Campaign’ became a legend with McKinley making himself available to the public every day except Sunday, receiving delegations from the front porch of his home. Minor foxing. Orig. wraps. Very good.
