dc.description.abstract Universal male suffrage, recognized under the Constitution of 1848, was seriously compromised by a law passed on May 31, 1850, that excluded 3 million out of the 9.5 million eligible voters. Marie Joseph Louis Adolphe Thiers (1797-1877) was the chief supporter of the law. He hoped to limit the influence of what he called the "vile multitude". The law led to violent demonstrations in 1851. The majority party wanted to maintain the law at all costs, while the opposition insisted that the law be revoked or the question would be settled with guns and bayonets. This print shows Thiers checking the pulse of a child who represents the law of May 31. Louis Mathieu, Conte Molé (1781-1855) and Pierre Jules Baroche (1802–1870) are watching the scene with tears in their eyes.
