Argument of L. M. Hadden, Esq. Before the Committee of Investigation. Ohio Ballot Box Contract [wrapper title].

[Cincinnati]: Geo. A. Bauer & Co., Prs. [1890]. Perhaps a first edition, though the sole copy located on OCLC notes a Cincinnati imprint of Acme Printing Co. 8vo, original printed blue wrappers, 18 pages. A little soiled and worn; a very good copy. Item #10850

A by-way in the infamous Ohio ballot-box hoax, which had been an attempt by one of Governor J. B. Foraker's supporters to tie Democratic challenger James Campbell to a shady financial interest in a ballot-box deal; the relevant document was proved a forgery and Campbell squeaked out a victory. Hadden, a Cincinnati Republican, here follows up on his original testimony (in which he claimed innocence in the affair) to respond to further charges.

Price: $50.00
