President Taft noimated for as next presidential candidate...



Item # 593739

August 6, 1912

THE FRANKLIN JOURNAL, Farmington, Maine, August, 6, 1912  The front page of this issue has a one column-wide article "Taft's Speech of Acceptance" with subheads "'Save the Constitution' The Keynote and Democrats Asked to Help" and "Spread of Socialist Doctrines Is Due to Muckraking and Should be Checked". This would be the year in which a four-way presidential election occurred -- Republicans, Democratic, Progressive and Socialist. Other political articles are on the front page. The balance of this issue consist of a lot interesting events within the community and surrounding area and includes some advertisements.

Note: The acceptance speech continues on the back page (see last several images), with "...the president launches into a bitter attack upon 'those responsible for the popular unrest' of the present day... Votes are not bread, constitutional amendments are not work, referendums do not pay rent or furnish houses, recalls do not furnish clothing, initiatives do not supply employment or relieve inequalities of condition or of opportunity...". It is quite interesting to see how the political tensions we currently struggle with are nothing new.

This is complete in four pages and is in very nice condition.
