MANTON MARBLE. Signature: "Manton Marble/New York Feb 20 1884", 4¼x2 slip. Manton Marble (1834-1917) was a journalist in Boston and New York who became editor of the New York World from 1860 until its sale in 1876. Supported by wealthy Democrats like August Belmont and Samuel Tilden, the World supported the Party's programs and candidates. Manton's paper supported the Union war effort but opposed emancipation, and endorsed Lincoln's opponent, George McClellan, in the Presidential election of 1864. Marble lobbied the administration of President Cleveland (1885-1889, 1893-1897) to abandon the gold standard in favor of bimetallism, a policy rebuffed by Cleveland but embraced by the next Democratic nominee, William Jennings Bryan. By that time, however, Marble head moved to England and was no longer influential in American politics. Lightly soiled. Minor nicks along right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
