William McKinley (Peace, Prosperity Protection).
The 1896 presidential campaign produced the greatest variety of campaign canes of any election. This cane features a tin horn created for William McKinley. It was inscribed with his slogan, "peace, prosperity and protection," and can actually be used to make noise, similar to a kazoo. It could be waved and used as a noise maker during rallies.
