In a quiet campaign notably different, from the rancorous one of. four years earlier, Cleveland had reversed the decision against Harrison by besting the colorless 'and conservative aristocrat with wide margins in both popular and electoral votes. Cleveland had profited from the campaign of the People's Party, headed by James B. Weaver, who had c u t s o d e e p l y i n t o Republican ranks .that he predicted, "The Republican Party is as dead as the Whig Party was after the Scott campaign of 1852, and can- n o t m a k e a n o t h e r campaign." The past eight years had been prosperous ones, but ominous signs warned that the nation's behavioral and fiscal policies were on a collision course with the future. Farm prices were falling, the flow of gold-to foreign markets had slashed the reserve to below $100 million, unemployment was rising, labor unions . were becoming strong and unruly and the large Philadelphia- Reading Railway had gone bankrupt a few days before Cleveland's inauguration. In his second inaugural address Cleveland met the issues head-on by singling out three symptoms of "insidious i n f i r m i t y t h a t threatens our n a t i o n a l vigor:" ^ The exposure to degradation of "a sound and stable currency," *f "The waste of public money is a crime against the citizen," and, i* The danger in the "prevalence of a popular disposition to expect from the operations of the government special and direct individual advantages." The President dwelt at length on the "unwholesome progeny of paternalism," and declared, "The lessons of paternalism ought to be unlearned and the better lesson taught that while the people should patriotically and cheerfully support their government, its functions do not include the support of the people." Three months after Cleveland took office the Panic of 1893 struck in full fury. The stock market collapsed, bankruptcies were common occurrences and gangs of angry, unemployed men roamed the country looking for jobs and finding trouble. It was men like these who made up "Coxey's A r m y " t h a t marched on Washington demanding a $500 million road-building program, and s u c c e e d e d i n g e t t i n g "General" Jacob Coxey arrested for trespassing on the White House grounds. Grover Cleveland (Administration: March 4, 1893-March 3, 1897) CHARLESTON, W.VA.. President Cleveland summoned Congress to a special summer session, then left for New York where he boarded a private yacht to undergo an operation to remove cancerous tissue from the roof of his mouth. A second operation was performed two weeks later, a rubber replacement for his upper left jaw was inserted and the President was able to address Congress later in the summer. Secrecy was used to avoid worsening an already panicky situation. Cleveland persuaded Congress to repeal the Sherman Silver Purchase Act, but only after a bitter fight that left the Democrats h o p e l e s s l y split. The following year the House passed a tariff reduction bill that met the President's approval, but the measure got such rough handling in the Senate that Cleveland disgustedly allowed it to become law without his signature. The President antagonized public opinion and thwarted "Manifest Destiny" by blocking the movement to annex Hawaii begun under Harrison's Administration. Instead, he asked Congress to find a solution to the Hawaii problem "consistent with American honor, integrity and morality." By January of 1895 the gold reserve had dwindled to about $40 million, and the Treasury Department's situation was desperate'. To b u i l d up the r e s e r v e , Cleveland arranged with a syndicate of New York bankers--Morgan, Belmont, Rothschild--to purchase a new issue of federal, bonds with gold. The reserve was replenished, but the interest rates were exorbitant, and Cleveland was w i d e l y criticized, apparently for underestimating human greed. So unpopular had Cleveland become by the end of his term that it came as no s u r p r i s e w h e n t h e D e m o c r a t i c N a t i o n a l Convention of 1896 handed him a double rebuff by formally repudiating his conservative fiscal policy and by n o m i n a t i n g as its standard-bearer the fre« silver crusader, William J e n n i n g s B r y a n o f Nebraska. Cleveland refused to support Bryan, but he also refused the "nomination of t h e S o u n d M o n e y Democratic Party, and he w a s p l e a s e d w h e n R e p u b l i c a n n o m i n e e William McKinley, a "sound money" m a n , defeated Bryan. Despite repudiation by his own party, Grover Cleveland is usually rated by historians as the best Democratic President between Jackson and Wilson. He carried this d i s t i n c t i o n a l m o s t o n strength of character alone, for he was as nonpartisan as a successful politician can be. The bull-necked, indomitable and sometimes profane Cleveland remained a mama's boy and moralist to the end. He said his only envy of President McKinley was the presence of his mother at his inauguration, and his last words to his wife as he lay dying of kidney and heart disease were, "I have tried so hard to do right." These eight words epitomized the story of Grover Cleveland's life. Copyright 1972, Los Angeles Times Sunday Gazette-Mail
