Miss Rose Eliza

the eve of the

amazed the nation
by Its bold stand

was known to be
In a willing mood
In thus daring to
to a White House bride flew fast and
thick, the president having sent elab
orate bouquets to Miss "Frankie" Fol
som on the occasion of the young wo
man's graduation from Wells college.
Frances Folsom was the daughter of a
former law partner of Mr. Cleveland
In Buffalo. After her graduation she
traveled In Europe. On June 2, 1886,
shortly after her return to America,
she was married to the president in the
White House. •
Unusual obstacles beset the preslden
tlal pathway of Cleveland from the
moment of his Inauguration. Shut out
from executive favor for practically a
generation, the Democratic politldnus
were arid for office. The president
•ought to adhere to a policy opitosed to
removal from office of competent offi
cials except as to heads of divisions
and other Important officeholders, but
the Jacksonian cry "To the victors be
long the spoils!'' became so insistent
that the president was induced to mod
ify his policy to the extent of remov
als for "offensive partisanship," a
phrase coined by him which speedily
became famous. In the light of his
tory It must be admitted that "often
•Ire partisans" In federal offices were
exceedingly numerous in those days.
Republican postmasters were slaugb
tered by wholesale.
In a storehouse connected with the
GROVER CLEVELAND AS PRESIDENT IN 188&
war dapotaent were rnauy crates of
batttsflags captured from southern
armies. * At tbe suggestion of the ad
Jutant general Mr. Cleveland ordered
that tbs flags be ret or n AI to the states
from whose regiments they had been
captured. Certain Grand Army poets
became so Indignant that they pa»*e l

Instead of going Into tb-' army during
tbe war. Thla Incident, which took
place in 1887. waa Intensified In tta acri

as be bad been tbe veto mayor and the

or evoked by tbe battle flag order that
tbe president issued s frank statement
rescinding it, explaining that be had
acted without looking up tbe legal as
pect of tbs case sad that In his opinion
alienate that large wing of the De
mocracy which lielievcd In a high
tariff for the support of American
industries wus greeted by the Brit
ish press with profound admiration.
Eminent political economists In the
United States declared this message to
l>e one of the u blest of presidential pa
pers. The president's stand for reduc
tions In the tariff on a "revenue only''
basis was the subject of much discus
sion pro nml con for mnny years fol
Mr. Cleveland received the Demo
cratic nomination for president In 1888,
but was defeated In the election by
Benjamin Harrison of Indiana. Many
Democrats attributed his defeat to his
tariff message of 1887. After Mr.
Harrison's election and the consequent
tirade of criticism from members of
the president's own party Mr. Cleve
land sent for the speaker of the house
of representatives, John G. Carlisle, a
Democrat, and said to him, "If every
other man In the country abandons
this issue. 1 shull stick to It."
Accordingly In the Inst message of
his term he "stuck to" his stand on
the tariff problem, urging congress in
1888-1) to ennet Inws In line with his
suggestions of the winter before.
Cleveland retired to private Ilfs
March 4, 1880, and settled in New
York city for the practice of the law.
lie was not particularly active In poli
tics after hi.i retirement.
In the menu time history was making.
Harrison and high tariff were In the
saddle. The McKinley act of 1880, in
creasing the tariff on wool, tin plate
and other products, was followed by
high prices for the i>oor man's ueceoaa
ries of life. Events rapidly were shap
Ing themselves toward a vindication of
Grover Cleveland. The ex president at
tended to his law work, and the
people did the rest- With the politi
cians. as of old. mostly In opposi
tion. the ludepeudeut Democratic vot
ers forced the selection of Cleve
land delegates to tbe national Demo
ocrattc convention of 18 P 2 . held In
June. "Four more years of Grover"
waa the campaign cry. Though the
New York delegation opposed hliu. Mr.
Cleveland was nominated for the presl
deucy the third time In succession on
the first ballot. President Harrison
again was his Republican o|ipooeut
Cleveland was elected, receiving 277
electoral votes against 145 for Harrison
and 22 for General Weaver, Populist.
