[Columbus? n.p, 1887]. First edition. 8vo, unbound, 35 pages. Some soiling; a very good copy. OCLC notes copies at MiU, DLC & OHi only. Item #9907

A typically combative stump speech from "Fire-Engine Joe" Foraker, delivered in Middleton. Foraker hammers on Democrat election fraud and on his successful efforts to reform the police force in Cincinnati, where gambling had been conducted openly and a visitor "was pounced upon by a lot of bunko-steerers, who lined the streets and were ready and willing to relieve him of his cash or anything else he had." With the expected attacks on President Cleveland's lukewarm treatment of the memory of the Union cause.
