A Memorable Political Campaign Re
called By a Find on the South Side. ]
__
The Bottom of a Big Hickory Pole,
Which Had Been Planted on
South Jacob Street During the
Know Nothing Campaign Found
Yesterday by Workmen Who
Were Excavating for a New
Building—W. C. Handlan Sr., |
Recalls the Campaign in an In
teresting Way.
Yesterday morning the workmen who
are engaged in excavating for the new
residence to be built on South Jacob
street for Benedict Arnold, dug out the
stump of a hickory pole which is an
interesting relic of one of the most
memorable campaigns ever waged in
this country. The workmen dug
around the pole to the depth of c\ei
five feet and yet did not reach the
lower end. Several Eighth ward part
ies yesterday carried away pieces of
the hickory to keep as a relic.
W. C. Handlan. Sr., one of the local
fathers of Democracy, and one of the
older citizens of the South Side, was
asked for a history of the pole. Mr.
Har.dlan stated that he remembered
well the time that the pole was planted.
It was in the beginning of the exciting
Knownothing eartipaign of 1S5*». when
the so-called American party nominat
ed Millard Fillmore for re-election to
the Presidency, but who was defeated
by James Buchanan. The pole was
the first, probably, ever erected in this
vicinity, and was put up by the Demo
cratic organization of the South Side.
At that time there was no organized
club or political body in the Eighth
ward and a number of Democrats call
ed a meeting for the purpose of ar-^
ranging for the pole, and at the time
that it was lifted in the air a great
political meeting was held on the spot,
nddrpsppd bv some of the noted polie
ical orators of ihat time.
In reference to the campaign during
which this pole was put up. the events
of it were vividly impressed upon a
good many of the now older citizens of
1 Wheeling. During the heated part of
j this campaign. Henry A. Wise, who was
then making the race for the Governor
ship of Virginia, made his celebrated
speech in the old court house on Mar
ket street against the Knownothing
party. As is well known, the American
party, which they called themselves,
had declared as their distinctive prin
ciple that the government must be in
i the hands of Americans only: that
I naturalization was to follow only after
a probation in this country of twenty
one years, and allegiance to any for
eign potentate or power—presumably
the Pope—was to be a bar to selection
to any political office. The order was
a secret one, much after the style of
the present A. P. A., and the popular
name arose from the members, always
professing to “know nothing when
Questioned about it. In the :.tate elec
tions of 1855 the party carried most of
New England, besides New York. Ken
tucky and California, and gained some
success in other States. 1 he national
campaign that followed was most bit
ter. The order had a strong following
in Wheeling, and many of the local
Democrats left their party to join it.
Wise, in making his canvass, which
was a remarkable one, had secured a
copy of the ritual of the order and al
ways used it effectively by reading
portions from it during his speeches.
The loral Knownothings, when they
heard that Wise was to deliver a speech
in Wheeling, vowed that he would
never he permitted to read the ritual
here. The Democrats went to the
meeting that night prepared to defend
Wise, who promptly pulled out the
blue covered ritual, and reading from
it, delivered some of his characteristic
and remarkably forceful blows against
the un-American platform and party
which ho was opposing.
