Now they may almost be counted by
election 1, Ths representatives of the
Iieiiiocratln party of the United Htatae
In national convention assembled to
reaffirm thulr allegiance to the princi
ples as formulated by Jefferson and
exemplified by a long aud Illustrious
line of his suconsaors In Democratic
leadorahlp from Madison to Cleveland;
we believe the public welfare demands
that thee principles be spplied to ths
federal government Ui rough ths so
o salon to power of ths party that
advocates them; sod so we solemnly
declare that tlte need of a return to
those fundamental principles of a free
popular government, leavd oa home
rule and Individual liberty, was never
more urgent than now, when the ten
dency to centralise all power at the fed
era! capital has become a menace of the
reserved rights of ths state that strikes
st lbs very runts of our government
under ths constitution as framed by
Hec. 2. We warn ths people of our
oommoa country, jealous for the nres
rvallon ot their free Institutions, that
the pulley of federal control of elections
to which ths iUpublloan party has
otmimlttatd Itself, Is fraught with the
gravest dangers, scarcely leas auoui en-
tout Uiaa would result from s revolu
tion practically establishing monarchy
00 ths ruins of the republic. It strikes
at ths ninth aa well as ths south, and
Injure lte colored ettisensevea more
titan ths while; It moans a horde of
deputy marshals at every polling place
armed with federal power, returning
boards Bppulnted and controlled by s
federal authority, ths outrage of the
electoral rights of the people In tbe
several states, tlte subjugation of tlte
oultired people to the eoutrol of the
party In power, and ths reviving of race
antagonisms, now happily abated, of
the utfiKett peril to the aaft ty and bap
pi new of all; a measure delllwretely
and Justly described by a leading lie
publican senator a "Ute must Infamous
bill that ever eruaatl the threahuld of
the eciiete," Kuolt a pulley, If sanc
tioned by law, would mean the domi
nance of a self-pvrpciuauug oligarchy
of office) holders, and the party first
entrusted with Its machluery could be
dislodged from power ouly by an ap
peal to tbe reserved right of the people
to resist oppression, which la Inherent
lu sll self-goveruing eouirauultlos.
Two years ago this revolutionary
policy was emphatically condemned by
the people alhe poll, but In contempt
of that verdict the Itcpubllcau party
haa defiantly declared In Its latest
authoritative utterance that Its success
la the comlug elections will mean the
enactment of the force bill and tbe
usurpation of despotie control over
election In alt the state. Believing
that tbe preservation of the republican
govern ment In the United Htatea Is
dependont ut)0 tbe defeat of this poli
cy of legsttied force sod fraud, ws In
vite tbe support of all alliens who de
sire to see Uie constitution maintained
lu Its Integrity wllh the laws pursuaut
thereto, which have given our country
nu years of unexampled prosperity;
and we pledge 'the Democratic party,
If It lie Intrusted with power, not only
to the defeat of the force bill, but also
to relentless opposition to the Repub
lican policy of profligate expenditure
which, In the short space of two year,
bas squandered an enormous surplus
and emptied an overflowing treasury,
after piling new burdens of taxation
upon the already over-taxed labor of
Hec, 8. We denounce Republican
protection as a fraud on the labor of the
greet majority of the American people
for the benefit of ths lew. We declare
It to be a fundamental principle of the
Democratic party that the federal
government has no constitutional
power to Impose snd collect tariff duties,
except for the purpose of revenue only,
and we domand that the collection of
such taxes shall be limited to ths no
ceitalllc of the government when hon
estly snd economically administered.
We denounce the Mckinley tar I (Haw
enacted by the Fifty-unit congress a
tbe culminating atrocity of clan legis
lation; we indorse the efforts msde by
the Democrats of the present congress
to motllfy Its most oppressive features
In ths direction of free raw material
and cheaper manufactured goods thnt
enter luto general consumption; and
we promise Its repeal as one of the
beneficent results that will follow the
action of the people In entrusting
power to the Democratic party, rJluve
the McKluley tariff went luto opera
tion there have been teu reductions of
the wage of laboring men to one In
crease. Wo deny that there has been
any Increase of prosperity to the coun
try since thnt tariff wont luto operation;
third, we point to the dulluess aud
distress with wsge reductions snd
strikes lu the Irou trade as the best
possible evidence that no such prosper
ity bas resulted from tbe McKluley
act. We call the attention of thought
ful Americans to the fact that after
thirty years of restrictive tariff against
tbe Importation of foreign wealth lu
exchange for our agricultural surplus,
the homes and faring of the country
have ' become burdened with a real
estate mortgage debt of over 2,50&Y
000,000, exclusive of all other forms of
Indebtedness; that In one ot the chief
agricultural states of tbe West there
appears a real-estate mortgage debt
averaging f 106 per capita of tbe total
population, aud that similar conditions
aud tendencies are shown to exist In
other agricultural exporting states.
We denounce a policy which fosters
no Industry so much ss It does that of
the sheriff. . ;
'. Bee 4. Trade Interchange on ths
basis of reciprocal advantages to the
roun tries participating Isatline-honored
doctrine of the Democratic faith, but
we donouuoe. the sham reciprocity
whlchjuggles with tbe people's desire
for enlarged foreign markets and freer
exchange by pretending to establish
closer' trade relations for ' a country
whose articles of export are almost
exclusively agricultural products wllh
other countries that are also agricultu
ral, while erecting a customhouse bar
rier of prohibitive tariff taxes against
ths richest countries of ths world, that
stand ready to take our entire surplus
of products snd to exebauge therefor
commodities which srs iieotsmarlos and
summit of life among our own people.
Sec. 6. We reoogtiln! iu the trusts
and oomblnatloiw which are designed
to enable capital to secure more than
Its Just share of ths Joint product of

settlers, has given sway tbe people's
heritage till now a few railroad and
oon-rldsnt alien, Individual and
corporate, ptawtg a larger area than
that of all our farms between tlte two

tration reversed ths Improvident and
unwise policy of tbe Republican
party touching the public domain, and
reclaimed from corporations and syn
dicates, alien snd domestic, and re
stored to the people nearly loo,(iu0,000
acres of valuable laud to be sacredly

ws pledge ourselves to continue this
policy until every acre of land so unlaw
fully held shall be reclaimed aiid re-

legislation known as tbe Hliermau set
of 18U0, aaacowardly makeshift, fraugbt
with possibilities of danger In tbe fu

porter as well a It author, anxious
for Its gpeedy reieat. We hold to tbe
use of hot h gold snd sll ver s the stand
ard money of the country, aud to the
coinage of both gold and silver without
discriminating agalust either metal, or
charge for mintage, but the dollar unit
of coinage of both metals must be of
equal luliintlvsod exchsngable value,
or be siljuatt-d through International
agreement or by such safeguards of leg
islation as ahull lusure the maintenance
of the parity of the two metals, and
the equal power of every dollar at all
times In the markets and In the pay
ment of debts; slid we demand that all
paper currency shall be kept at par
with and redeemable In such coin. We
insist uhjd tills policy as especially
necessary for tbe protection of Uie fann

most defenseless victim of unstable
money and s fluctuating currency.

We reaffirm the declaration of the Dem
ocratic national convention of 1878 for
ths reform of the civil service, and we
call for the honest enforcement of all
laws regulating tbe same. Tbe nomi
nation of a president, as lu the reoeut
Republican convention by delegates
composed largely of hla sppolutees,
holding office st bis pleasure, Is a scan
dalous satire upon free popular Intuitu-
tloua and s ttrtking Illustration of the
methods by which a president may
gratify hut ambition. We denounce a
policy under which federal office hold
ers usurp control of party conventions
lu the states, and we pledge tbe Demo
cratic party to the reform of these and
all other abuses which threaten liberty
and local self-government.

our neighbors on the American conti

the tendency to a policy of Irritation
and bluster which Is liable at any time
to confront us with the alternative of
humiliation or war. We favor the
maintenance of a navy strong enough

the country abroad.

For more than fifty years Cream of Tartar and Bi

with sufficient flour added to preserve the strength of the
