Civil Appointment Signed: "Grover Cleveland" as 24th U.S. President, and "Richard Olney" as Attorney General. One page. 18x13½. Washington, District of Columbia. Dated March 5, 1894. Appointment of Anson S. Taylor as "a Justice of the Peace in the County of Washington, in the District of Columbia, and assign you to the City of Washington to execute the duties of said Office…" Two months after he signed this appointment, Olney called on federal troops to deal with the workers involved in the Pullman Strike.Richard Olney (1835-1917) was a United States politician who began his political career in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, where he served one term from 1874 to 1876. In 1893, he was appointed the United States Attorney General. In this position, he developed a pro-business reputation due to his rejection of labor strikes as a legitimate means of protest. After Secretary of State Walter Q. Gresham passed away in 1895, President Cleveland elevated Olney to the position. He formulated the Olney Interpretation of the Monroe Doctrine, which maintained the U.S. right to intervene in international disputes in the Western Hemisphere. He also converted diplomatic posts in foreign nations into embassies, thus making them permanent fixtures rather than temporary ones. These two actions have greatly elevated the United States in international politics over the years.Grover Cleveland (1837-1908) served as the 22nd and 24th President of the United States. He was a leader of the Bourbon Democrats, a faction of the Democratic Party that was pro-business. Before he was elected to the Oval Office from 1885-1889 and 1893-1897, he served as the Mayor of Buffalo, New York (1882) and New York State Governor (1883-1885). His handling of the Pullman Strike in 1894 drew criticism from labor unions across the country. Fine orange seal affixed at lower left. Uniformly lightly tanned, mounted to conservator's paper which protects a 5-inch horizontal tear starting at left blank edge and touches three words (all intact), slightly rippled in parts. Otherwise, fine condition.
