Again the Chicago Platform.
Lincoln. Neb., March 19. The demo
crats and populis's held state conven
tions here today. Ihis eve mg. W. J.
Bryan announced to the democratic
partv and lo the nation at large the plat
form which he considers beat for the
democratic party, and practically upon
which he desires to stand, if nominated
at the Kansas City convention.
The platform, which was adopted by
the Nebraf-ka democracy with the great
est enthusiaem, reaffirms the Chicago
platform, declares for "sixteen to one,
opposes a large standing army, ae-
ounces the action of the republican
party on the Puerto Riean tariff bill, de
clares against trusts aml"imperialism,"
and favors the choice of United States
senators by popular vote. Mr. Bryan
did not write the platform personally,
ut he was consulted concerning it, and
before it was read to the convention, he
had approved it throughout.
The platform adopted by the populist
couvenlion was substantially the same
as that adopted by the democrats. It
differs somewhat in form, but conflicts
in no essential point.
Both conventions to lay were enthusi
astic for Bryan to the last degree, and
every mention of his name was greeted
ith cheers of delight and approval. In
structions were given to both delegations
to stand for Mr. Bryan in the Kansas
City and Sioux Falls conventions. '
