Know-Nothing Party:

MR. BUCHANAN'S LOW WAGES DOCTRINE.

Daily News Office, Philadelphia: [1856] Caption title [as issued]. Disbound. 8pp, lightly worn. Good+ to Very Good. At head of title: 'Read This, And Then Hand It To Your Neighbor. Tracts For The People. No. 3.' A rare, apparently unrecorded survival of the chaotic, three-way 1856 presidential campaign. This pamphlet, from the anti-immigrant American or Know-Nothing Party led by ex-President Millard Fillmore, charges that James Buchanan, the Democratic candidate, "did advocate the reduction of the wages of American laborers." Working men must shun him at the upcoming election: "American Laborers! Rally in support of the champion of your rights and interests. That man is Millard Fillmore. He has ever advocated the Protection of the American Laborer. His protective tariff of 1842 worked miracles for the mechanics and laborers of our country..." OCLC 79266787 [3]. Not in Sabin, Eberstadt, Decker, NUC.
