THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PLAT
FORM. The representatives of the democratic party of
the United States, ia national convention assem
bled, do reaffirm their allegiance to the princi
ples of the party as formulated by Jefterson and
exemplified by the long, illustrious line of his
successors in democratic leadership, from Mad
ison to Cleveland ; we believe the public welfare
demands that these principles be applied to the
conduct of the Federal government through the
accession to power of the party that advocates
them ; and we solemnly declare that the need of
a return to these fundamental principles of a
free and popular government, based on home
rule and individual liberty, was never more
urgent than now, when the tendency to central
ize all power at the Federal capital has become
a menace to the reserved rights of states, that
strikes at the root of our government under (he
constitution, as framed by the fathers of the
We warn the people of our common country,
jealous tor the preservation of their free institu
tions, that the policy of the Federal control of
elections, to which the republican party has
committed itself, is fraught with tho gravest
dangers, scarcely less momentous than would
result from a revolution, practically establish
ing monarchy on the ruins of the republic. Jt
Btrikes at the North as well as the Bouth, and
injures the colored citizen more than the whites.
It means hordes of deputy marshals at every
polling place, armed with the Federal power of
returning boards appointed and controlled by
the Federal authorities ; an outrage on the elect
oral rights of the people in theirstntes; the nub
jugation of the colored people to the control of
the party in power, and reviving the mce antag
onism now happily abated. It is of the utmost
peril to the safety and happiness of all. It is a
measure deliberately and justly described by
leading republicans as the most infamous bill
that ever crossed the threshold of the senate.
Such a policy, if sanctioned by law, would mean
the dominance of a self-perpetuating oligarchy
of office-holders, and the party first entrusted 1
with the machinery could be dislodged from
power only by an appeal to the reserved rights
of the people to resist oppression, which is in
herent iu all self-governing communities. Two
years ago this revolutionary policy was emphat
ically condemned by the people at the polls;
but in contempt of that verdict the republican
party has defiantly declared, in its latest author
itative utterances, that its success in the coming
elections will mean the enactment of the force
bill and the usurpation of a despotic control
over elections in all states. Relieving that the
preservation of republican government is de
pendent upon the defeat of such a policy, legal
ized by force and fraud, we invite the support
of all citizens who desire to see the constitution
maintained in its integrity with laws pursuant
thereto, which have given our country 100 years
of unexampled prosperity.
THS TABIPF PJ-ANK.
We pledge the democratic party is not only
able to defeat the force bill, but also to oiler a
relentless opposition to the republican policy of
profligate expenditure, which in the short space
of two years has squandered the enormous sur
plus and emptied the overflowing treasury, after
piling new burdens of taxation upon the already
overtaxed labor of the country. We reiterate
the oft repeated doctrines of the democratic
party that the necessity of the government is the
only juHtiOcation for taxation, and whenever a
tax is unnecessary it is unjustifiable, or that
when a custom -house taxation is levied upon
articles of any kind produced In this country,
the difference between the cost of labor here and
lalor abroad, when such difference exiBts, fully
measures any possible benefits to labor, and the
enormous additional impositions of the existing
tariff fall with a crushing force upon our farm
ers and worklngmen, and for the mere advant
age of the few, whom they enrich, exact from
the laboring class a grossly unjust share of the
expenses of the government, and we demand
such a revision of the tariff Utwi as will remove
their iniquitous inequalities, lighten their op
pressions aud put them on a constitutional and
equitable basis. But In making a reduction of
taxes it is not proposed to injure any dome' tic
industries, but rather to promote a healthy
growth from their foundation. Government
taxes, collected at the custom-houses, have been
the chief source oi Federal revenue. Buch they
must continue to be. Moreover many indus
tries have come to rely upon legislation for suc
cessful continuance, so any change In the law
must be at every step regardful of the labor and
capital thus involved. The process of reform
must be subject, in its execution, to this plain
dictate of justice. We denounce the McKinley
tariff law, as the culminating atrocity of class
legislation; we indorse the efforts ol the demo
crats of the present congress to modify its most
oppressive features in the direction of free raw
materials and cheaper manufactured goods of
general consumption, and we promiae its repeal
as one of the beneticent results that will follow
the action of the people in entrusting power to
the democratic party. Since the MeKioley tariti'
wnt into operation thjpr have bn tin n duc
tions in the wages of laboring men to one in
creHse. The prosperity of the country since the
tariff went into operation has been uliangwl to
dullness and distress. The wage reductions and
strikes in the iron trade are the bent evidence
that no such prosperity resulted from the Mc
Kinley act. We call the attention of thoughtful
Americans to the fact that after thirty years of
restrictive taxes against the importation of for
eign wealth in exchange for our agricultural
surplus, home aud farms of the country have
become burdened with over $2,f00,Oi)0,Wl) of real
estate mortgages, exclusive of all other forms oi
indebtedness; that in one of the chief agricul
tural states of the West there appears a real es
tate mortgage averaging 10" per capita of its
total population; and that Bimilar conditions j
are shown to exist in other agriculturnl and ex- ;
We denouueo the policy which fosters no in
dustry so much as it does that of the tariff.
Trade luterchauge on the basis of reciprocal ad- j
vantages to the countries participating is time- (
honored doctrine of the democractlc faith, but
we denounce the sham reciprocity which jug
gles with the people's desire for enlarged foreign
markets and for freer exchanges, by pretending
to establish closer trade relations for a country
whose articles of export are almost exclusively
agricultural products, with other countries that
are also agricultural, while erecting a custom
house barrier of prohibitive tariff taxes against
the richest countries of the world, that stand
ready to take our entire surplus products and
exchange therefor commodities which are nec
essaries and comforts of life among our people.
TRUSTS AND COMBINATION.'
We recognize 111 trusts and combinations,
which are designed to enable capital to secure
more than a just share of the joint product of
capital and labor, the natural consequences of
prohibitive taxes, which prevent free competi
tion, which is the life of honest trade, but be
lieve their worst evils can be abated by law, and
we demand a rigid enforcement of the laws
made to prevent and control thein, together
with such further legislation in the restraint of
their abuses as experience may show to be
THE LAND QUKSTIOM.
The republican party, while profossiug a pol
icy of reserving public lauds fur small holdings
by actual settlers, has given uway the people's
heritage, till now a few railroads and non-resident
aliens, individual and incorporate, possess
a larger area than that of all the farms between
the two Bcas. The last democratic adminis
tration reversed the improvident aud unwise
policy of the republican party touching the pub
lie domain, and reclaimed it from corporations
and syndicates, alien and domestic, and restored
to the people nearly 100,000,000 acres of valuable
land, to be sacredly held as homesteads for our
citliens, and we pledge ourselves to continue
this policy until every acre of land so unlawful
ly held shall be reclaimed aud restored to the
THE HILViCIt UUKKTION.
We denounce the republican legislation
known as the Sherman act of WW as a cowardly
makeshift fraught with the possibilities of dan
ger in the future, which should, make all its
supporters, as well as author, anxious for a
speedy repeal. We hold to the use of both gold
and silver as the standard money of the country
and to the coinage of both gold and silver with
out discrimination against either metal or
charge for mintage, but the dollar uiOfon the
coinage of both metals must i.Mrf tVal JuUln

and the equal power of every dollar at all times
in the mintB and in the payment of debts, and
we demand that paper currency be kept at par
with and redeemable in such coin. We insist
upon this policy as especially necessary for the
protection of farmers and the laboring classes,
the ilrst and most defenseless victims of unsta
ble money and fluctuating currency.
THE STATE BANK TAX.
We recommend that the prohibitory 10 per
cent tax on state bank issues be repealed.
Wo reaffirm the declaration of tho democratic
national convention of 1870 for the reform of the
civil service, and call for an honest enforcement
of all laws regulating the same. The nomina
tion of the president, as in the recent republican
convention, by delegations composed largely of
hiB appointees, holding office at his pleasure,
is a scandalous satire upon free popular institu
tions and a startling illustration of the methods
by which a president may gratify his ambition.
We denounce the policy under which Federal
office-holders usurp the control of party conven
tions in states, and pledge the democratic party
to reform these and all other abuses which
threaten individual liberty and local self
government. OUR FOREIGN POLICY.
The democratic party is the only party that has
ever given the country foreign policy consist
ent and vigorous, compelling respect abroad and
inspiring confidence at home, while avoiding
entangling alliances. It has aimed to cultivate
friendly relations with other nations and es
pecially with the neighbors in the American
continent, whose destiny is closely linked with
our own, and we view with alarm tiie tendency
of a policy of irritation and bluster, which is
liable at any time to confront us with the alter
native of humiliation or war.
We favor the maintenance of a navy strong
enough lor all purposes of national defense and
to properly maintain the honor and dignity of
the country abroad.
SYMPATHY FOR OTHERS.
This country has always been the refuge of the
oppressed from every land, exiles for conscience'
sake and the spirit of the founders of our gov
ernment. We condemn the oppression prac.
ticed by the Russian government upon Jewish
subjects, and call upon the national government,
in the interest of Justice and humanity, by all
just and proper means, to use its prompt and
best efforts to bring about a cessation of these
cruel persecutions of the czar, and to secure to
the oppressed equal right. We tender our pro
found and earnest sympathy to those lovers of
freedom who are struggling tor home rule and
the great cauBe of local self-government for Ire
land. I'NUKKIRABLB IMMIGRATION.
We heartily approve all legitimate efforts to
prevent the United States from being used as a
dumping-ground for the known criminals and
professional paupers of Europe, and demand a
rigid enforcement of the laws against Chinese
immigration, and the importation of foreign
workmen under contract, to degrade American
labor and lessen its wages, but we condemn and
denounce any aud nil attempts to restrict the
immigration of the Industrious and worthy of
THE FENHION LAWS.
Tills convention hereby renews its expression of
appreciation of the patriotism of the soldiers and
sailors of the Union in the war for its preserva
tion, and Uvor just and liberal pensions for all
disabled Union soldier, their widows and all de
pendents, but we demand that the work of the
pension office shall be done industriously, fur
partially and honestly. We denounce the pre
ent administration as incompetent, corrupt.dis
graceful aud dishonest.
THE RIVEK IMPROVEMENT.
The Federal government should care for and
improve the Mississippi river and other great
waterways of the republic, so as to secure for the
interior of the states easy and cheap transporta
tion to tide watT. W"hn Hiy waterway is of
sufficient public Importance to demand aid of
the government, that such aid be extended on a
definite plan for continuous work until the -permanent
improvement is secured.
THE NICARAGUA CANAL.
For the support of the national defense and the
promotion of commerce between states we rec
ognize that the early construction of the Nioai
ogua canal and its protection against foreign
control as being of great importance to tho Uul."
THE WOULD' FAIR.
Recognizing the World's Columbian Exposition
ttBanatiot.nl undertaking of vast importance,
in which the general government has invited
the co-operation of all the powers of ttie world
and appreciating the acceptance by many such
powers of the invitation so extended, uua
the broad and liberal efforts being made by them ,
to contribute to the grandeur of the undertak
ing, we are of the opinion that congress should .
make such necessary financial provisions as
shall be requisite to the maintenance of the na
tional honor and public faith.
Being the only safe basis of popular suffrage,
we recommend to the several states the most
liberal appropriation for public schools. Free
eommou schools are the nurseries of good gov
ernment, aud have always received the foster
ing care of the democratic party, which favors
every means of increasing intelligence. Free
dom of education, being essential to civil relig
ious liberty as well as necessary fnr the devel
opment of intelligence, must not be interfered
with under any pretext whatever. We are op
posed to state interference with parental rightb
and the rights of conscience iu the education ol
children us an infringement of the fundamental
democratic doctrine that the largest Individual
liberty consistent with rights insures the high
est type of American citizenship and the best
ADMISSION OI1' NEW STATES.
We approve the action of the present house of
representatives in passing bills ioi admisslon in
to the Union us states of the territories of New
Mexico and Arizona, and favor the early admis
sion of all territories having the necessary pop
ulation and resources to entitle them to state
hood, and while they remain territories, we
hold that the officials appointed to administer
the government of any territory, together with
the District of Columbia and Alasks, should be
bona fide residents of the territory or district in
which their duties are to be performed. The
democratic party believes in home rule and the
control of their own affairs by tho people of the
TO PREVENT RAILWAY ACCIDENTS.
We favor legislation by congress and state legls
liition to protect the lives and limbs of railway
employes und those of other hazardous trans
portation companies, and denounce the inactiv
ity of the republican party, aud particularly the
republicans of the senate, for causing the defeat
of measures beneficial and protective to this
class of wageworkers.
THE SWEATING SYSTEM.
We favor the enactment by the statesof biws
for abolishing the notorious sweating system,
for abolishing contract convict lubor, and pro
hibiting the employment, in factories of children
under fifteen yearB of aj. We oppose, all sump
tuary laws bs Interference with the individual
rightB of citizens.
Upon this statement of principles and policies
the democratic party asks the intelligent judg
ment of the American people. It asks a change

change of methods, thus insuring u maintenance

t pusher, a man who goes ahead aud
keeps ahead. He is progressive, he is
dnterprirjing. he id far-seeing and a
helper of his fellow-man, not through
charity only, but by his works. He lives
and thrives by his productive and cre
ative energies. He has not a drop of the
blood of the parasite iu him, and so
many candidates for office are overflowing
with if, greatly to the injury of the people.
It cannot be denied that Air. Clove-
land's nomination must be attributed to
the sincere und powerful sentiment of the
mosses ot bis party, and not at all to the
political managers. The fact is that the
managers, where they dared, were
against his nomination. Up to the mo
ment when delegates from all parts of
the Union began to arrive in Chicago,
there was not the faintt-st semblance of
a "Cleveland machine." That is to say,
there was nothing like a preconcerted
nstional movement by skilllul and in
terested meu to create a manifest eeuti'
ment in favor of his nomination. The
nomination was made, aud made iu a
manner that established beyond all
doubt a degree of oouHdeuce in Air,
Cleveland, of au eager aud resolute de
sire for his leadership, that is absolutely
without precedent iu party history iu
this generation. N. V. Times (Ind.)
We tender the uasurauco of our ad
miring salutations to William Colline
Whitney, the cleverest politician of tlte
day. The democratic party of this state
has made a grand aud determined light
against the third nomination of Orover
Cleveland,,, They have presented facts
and arguments which had convinced
Ihem that if hw oAndiamy should Je
adopted by tho oouveutuu: ie ' con
sequences invr't he diaasb'O anJ for.
the present fatal to life doniocrir-ic cause.
But no sane man has ever doubted that
the chiefs of thin great and victorious
party (victorious we mean in the- state Of
New York), having taken their places as
delegates in the convention and Hiibmit
ted their views to its consideration,
would loyally abide by its decision and
do their utmost to elect whatsoever can
didate it might finally determine to nom
inate. All honor to tho iinllinching und
noble delegation of New York democrats
at Chiougo. All honor to that unquali
fied democrat, that faithful and fearless
politician, that Huoocsriful champion, D.
B. Hill, the only statesman of the
democracy possessing the courage aud
spirit to oiler himself as a leader against
the claim to a third nomination set up
for a once donated aspirant." N. Y. Hun
Our relations with Hawaii have bmn
slightly perturbed, but the clouds have
blown over and we are again on friendly
terms with the island kiugdom. As in
the case with tho lute unpleasantness
with Chili, the trouble was largely due
to the impolitic conduct of our oonsul.
Mr. Htevens, the American represeiitati e,
made a speech ou Decoration Day, in
whieu he made unfavorable comparison
between the United States and the king
dom of Hawaii. The latter government
passed a resolution censuring the United
States consul All good democrats will
be relieved to know that the obnoxious
resolution has been retracted. If Mr,
The "Royal" the Strongest and
Purest Baking Powder.
Whether any oilier baking powder is equal to
"Royal," let the official reports decide. When
the different powders were purchased on the open
market and examined by Prof. Chandler, of the
New-York Board of I lealth, the result showed that
Royal Baking Powder contained twenty-seven
per cent, greater strength than any other brand.
When compared in money value, this difference
would be as follows :
If one pound of Royal Baking Powder sells
for 50 cents,
One pound of no other powder is worth over
If another baking powder is forced upon you
by the grocer in place of the Royal, see that you
are charged the correspondingly lower price.
Harrison had declared war juat at this
juncture he would have so aroused the
martial spirit of America as to have
made his election sure. Aud what's
more, our navy could whip Hawaii's.
In speaking of the nomination ot Har
rison, a few days since, Governor Pen
noyer said : "Well, Ben is a good fellow,
and has made a very fair president. But
he will lose many votes ou account of
his shubby treatment of Blaine. No, he
did not treat Blaine right. Cleveland,
did you say? Well, I hope they wont
put up thut old fraud. I am not a Cleve
land mau because I am a democrat. And
Hill is auother failure. It would be a
pity if the party could not bring out bet
ter men. Cleveland is a mugwump. I
don't know what Hill is. Bnt I really
don't think Cleveland will be nominated,
unless a furore is created that will carry
him through on the tirst ballot."
