declaration of principles:
"The Prohibition party of the United
States of America, in convention at At
lantic City. N. J. July 11. 1912, recog
nizing; God as the source of all gov
ernmental authority, makes the follow
ing declaration of principles:
"The alcoholic drink traffic is wrong,
the most serious drain on the Nation's
wealth and resources, detrimental to
general welfare, destructive to the In
alienable rights of life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness, and therefore all
laws taxing or licensing a traffic that
produces crime, poverty and political
corruption and spreads disease and
death, should be repealed. To destroy
such a traffic there must be elected to
power a political party that will ad
minister the Government from the
viewpoint that the alcohol drink traffic
ia a crime and not a business.
Single Term Idea Indorsed.
"We favor the election of United
States Senators by direct vote of the
"Presidential terms of six years and
one term only.
"Uniform marriage and divorce laws.
"The extermination of polygamy and
the complete suppression of the traffic
"Suffrage for women on the same
terms as for men.
"Court review as to poatofflce deci
sions. "The absolute protection of the rights
of labor- without impairment of the
rights of capital.
"The settlement of all International
disputes by arbitration.
"The initiative and referendum.
"The tariff is a common question and
should be fixed on the basis of ac
curate knowledge acquired by a per
manent non-partisan tariff commission
with ample powers.
"An elastic currency system adequate
to our industrial needs.
"The complete and permanent sepa
ration of church and state, opposing
appropriation of public funds for any
Child Factory Labor Opposed.
"The abolition of child labor in the
mines, workshops and factories, with
the rigid enforcement of laws now
"Equitable graduated income and In
"Conservation i of our mineral and
forest reserves. ' reclamation of arid
nd waste lands, urging that all min
eral and timber lands and water power
now owned by the Government be held
perpetually and leased for revenue
"Clearly defined laws for the regu
lation and . control of corporations
transacting an Interstate business.
"Greater efficiency and economy in
"To these fundamental principles the
National Prohibition party renews its
allegiance and on these issues invites
the co-operation of all citizens, to the
ena that the true objects of popular
government may be attained, i. e- equal
and exact justice to all."
