Manning (1831-1887, born in Albany, New York) was an editor and owner of the Albany Argus and chairman of the New York Democratic Committee before being appointed Secretary of the Treasury (1885-1887) under President Grover Cleveland. Before retiring due to ill health, he advocated basing the dollar on both gold and silver. This was a rather important issue to a young United States. Eastern bankers wanted it backed by gold, while Westerners wanted it backed by silver (the West had many large silver mines, after all). He also worked on a tarrif that became the McKinley Tariff of 1890, which lowered customs duties.
