- DescriptionAs the nineteenth century drew to a close, the United States was transitioning from an agrarian based ecomy into an industrial ecomy which then led to the mopolies and power of big business during the Gilded Age. During the years between the Election of 1892 and the Election of 1896, the political parties participated in a series of Quadrangular Debates in various cities. The Great Quadrangular Debate held in Philadelphia in early spring 1893 addressed the question: Which offers the best practical political means for the benefit of the working men of the country -the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, the People's Party, or the Church? This booklet is a scanned reprint of the speeches given at Philadelphia by James Baird Weaver for the People's Party, Reverend Russell Conwell, Henry Watterson for the Democrats, and S L Woodford for the Republicans. It was originally published in 1893.
