so fair and just as to bu absolutely beyond

1 lie people have not forgotten that tin-
lerthe Republican apporti nment which
existed in 1891. end which had existed for
rears, and which they arbitrarily refused
to change, although we carried tbe state
by 50.000 majority, yet the senate was
tlcse, and our opponents by fraud end
technicalities sought to deprive us of that

titled as the dominant party of the state.
We demand an apportionment which
■hall quickly and faithfully respond to
public sentiment, whether it is for or
against us. which shall fully recognize the
oqutility of every citizen, so that an hon

home or a tenement house In a great city
shall ocunt as much as the occupant of a
palace or th« owners of thousands of acres
in the country.
The Republican constitutional conven
tion now in session, whose work Is largely
a miserable failure and was only "damned
with faint praise" in tbe Republican plat
form of last week, has invented a schema
to deprive the threat Democratic cities of
tbe state of their just share of representa
tion—a scheme which actually provides
that an Increase of population In such
cities shall not furrlsh a basis for In
creased representation In tbe legislature.
Never was there a greater political outrage
deliberately contemplated and conceived
to enable a desperate party to retain pow
er against the will of the people.
This partisan and nefarious attack upon
the political rights of our party should
arouse every Democrat worthy of the name
and lead him to do his utmost to secure the
dofeat of the whole work of that infamous
convention, some of the memliers of which
are under criminal prosecution for al
leged bribery in receiving or giving
votes for the apportionment article. It Is
a fitting commentary upon the men and
work of that convention that a scheme
conceived In iniquity to deprive a polit
ical party of its just rights should be
based and supported upon bribery and
The Democratic party in this state
stands, as it has ever stood, for that reli
gious liberty which is guaranteed to all by
our constitution, and I arraign the Re
publican party for Its covert sympathy
with and encouragement of that proscrip
tive spirit which attempts to set up a reli
gious test as a qualification for official
preferment In this land of freedom, and
which is propagated by a certain secret
political organization which deserves exe
cration at the hands of every fair minded
man, but which tbo Republican state con
vention last week distinctly refused,
though earnestly urged, to condemn.
Our duty Is plain, and I believe we
shall i>er'orm ft, and if percbanoe adher
ence to the right brings disaster we shall
bravely accept our fate and take our place
in private station by the side of our pro
scribed fellow citizens until reason, jus
tice and true religious freedom shall again
resume their sway, as surely they will.
