INTRODUOTION.

BELIEVING that in so important a campaign as at present there will be a demand for an honest Campaign Book, we take pleasure in offering this work to the public.

Some two years ago we selected Mr. Thomas Campbell-Copeland, formerly a statistician in the Census Office at Washington, and one of the contributors to “The American Cyclopedia,” to compile this work. Having engaged the services of Mr. Copeland, we next endeavored to secure some prominent statesman to review the work and write an introduction for it, thus giving it the stamp of absolute authority. As previously announced, Senator Joseph R. Hawley consented to do this for us. In his letter accepting our offer, he writes: “I cannot imagine how you are to get into a work, anything less than the size of the Encyclopedia Britannica, all the matter imperatively indicated by the table of contents you send me. I can only say, if you do, it will be the best campaign book ever issued.

Please indicate, with what particularity you can, the nature of the desired introduction, and I will write it as you desire.” It is with sincere regret that we now announce that, owing to the pressure of important engagements, it has been utterly impossible for Senator Hawley to fulfill his promise. We are sure, however, that a careful study of the contents of this work will prove that we have succeeded in embodying within a reasonable compass such political statistics and matters of general political interest, that no question is likely to arise during the coming campaign about which this book will not furnish reliable information.

On all presidential years there are hundreds of catchpenny books put upon the market, containing little more than a padded

life of the Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates, and the extravagant way in which these books have been advertised, and their failure to fulfill the promises made for them, have led many people to hesitate about buying a campaign work. We believe, however, that this book will fulfill all promises and expectations; it has been made for use, and contains information that gives it permanent value. We have endeavored to make the mechanical part of the book in keeping with the merits of its contents.
