At ths evening session tho first ac
tual business was the reading oi the
following addition to the platform,
rrhich was unanimously adopted:
Whereas, Other questions having
been pres nted lor our consideration,
wo htreby submti the following, not 1 8
a part of tho piat.'orm of the itople"s
part;, but as a resolution expressive of
the sentiment of this convention:- We
d 'inand a freo ballot and fair count in
all eleclioni, and pledge ourselves t-j
secure it to every ligul vo'er withoLt
fel .ral intarven.ioc, throih theadop
ti jn by state9 of the unpji-vortei Aus
tealiaa cr 8 cret bailot syst.m. The
revenue derived from a graduated in
coaie lax should ie applied to the re
duetion cf the burcen ct taxation no
levi ;d upon the domestic industries ol
the country. We pledge . suppoi t to
fair and liberal p.nsions to ex-uniou
soldiera and sailors. We eorulein j pro
t c ing American Ubor under tho p.ses
ei t system, which 0;jcns our pt,rs to
the pauiier and criminal cias-.e oi the
world, and crowds out our Wi.go earn
ers, and we denounce the present in
effective laws against contract labor,
and demand a further restric
tion of undesirable immigration.
Vo cordialiy sympathize with the
efforts of organized workingmcu
to shortsn their hours of labor,
and demand a rigid enforcement of the
existing eight-hour law on government
works, and ask a penalty clause be
added to said law. We regard the
maintenancs of the largo standing
a. mies of-mercenaries, 4c town as the
Piakertou system, as a ma.'acu to our
liberties, and we condemn tho recent
invasion of the territory of Wyoming
by the hired assassins of plutocracy,
assisted by Foderal oHicjrs. We com
mend to tho thoughtful consideration
of the people and tne reform press the
legiilativo system known as iha init.ii
tive and rofuroadum. We favor a con
stitutional provision limiting the
offices of preaid-nt and vice-president
to one term, and providing for ihc
election of senators for tho United
States by tho direct vota of tho peo
ple. We oppase any su'isiiy or na
tional aid to any private corporation
for any purpose .
Hugh Cavanaugh, of Ohio, theu in
troduced the following resolution,
which was adopted:
Resolved, That this convention 6ym
pathiz -s with the Knights of Labor in
their rigttious contest with the tyran
nical combine of clothing manufactur
ers cf Rochester, and declares it the
duty of all who hate tyranny and op
pression to refuse to purchasa goods'
made by said manufacturers, or to .pat
ronize any merchant who. soils such

Editor Ssutticra sircsor. Mail:
It is so hard to pprsnade the
average vcU-r of the magnitude, of
the crisis that is upon us as 11
nation. This is r.ot so much -the
want of intelligence as an innate
desire of inaction; the dread tu
launch out into new fens and to
traverse the) unexplored.
That the majority of the Peo
ple's Party have the impending
crisis not only in their heads, hut
also in their heart., is now a dem
onstrated fact, find newr before 111
our history, not even in the old
slave days, have principles been
studied ;.i:d comprehended Unit
reb.te to our nation's vrc-lf.ire and
existence as a republic as r.o.v.
Never before have a people mo:c
keenly felt that there is but two
ways before them victory soon at
the polls, or republican death
wi.h all that means.
The same furcis are nt work
this day in our nation that have
destroyed every nation of history,
except those destroyed by subjuga
tion ar.d'the ppeid with which we
have approached this ui.-is lias
never before been equaled, because
cf the prolific soii in which and by
which it has been propagated and
Vice has always been the sub
ject of legislative icstrainls, but
in this cvuntry vice, in a borrowed
garment, has- legislated unto itself
powers which belong only t-i virtue
and ir.stead of being legislated
against most sli legis!ai!on fi r the
past '25 years has been in favor of
vice, double distilled ar.d as per
nicious as the '"baleful dews" i f
Charim's dreary lake, and unices
speedily restrained our republic
will be destroyed.
We are told that ' tho People's
Paity wilt soon be a thing of the
past." If so, then will also cur
republic be a thing of the past;
th-.-v live or die together.
Just how the plutocratic forces
will strengthen their forces, in the
fmv days more "of respite granted
them, will depend much upun the
degree of moral degredation tu
which they have arrived. .The pro
verbial straw that broke the
camel's back they have now in
their power of use; will they lay
it on or will telf pic? crvutinti (and
nitli whom perhaps no higher
motive can 1 o.-s.bly weigh) cause
them to retain? To delay is a
possible escape with their ill gotten
g:;ins. Jo lay it 1111 loics an issue
we dread. To even think if the
results which cannot be less than
their political and finauchil death
and must be much more, which of
the tivo ways all things considered
is the better we opine not. Thirty
millions of people are under the
power and control of cipilal
Will they continue to submit and
pass the unremedied evils, down
to coming generations, or for the
good of their childre.i and the
honor of a patriot' name, bid
defiance., now to plutocratic itile?
Stand up and be counted as men
on the side of equal right to all
and special privileges to none.
As for myself i still have faith in
the humanity of man. When once
we get the people to see and under
stand, then will come the victory.
Oil Lord hasten the day.
Towilerty Will Ho There.
There is a great work ahead: a plat
form is erected: it is u uiaHMvo piece of
workmanship, and is so constructed that
to strengthen tho nation it should bo
placed in Washington, where our law
makers shonld stand on it. Neither the
Democratic nor Republican parties will
help transport it to Washington, for
they have refused to give it transporta
tion on their railroads, and the people
arc leaving their work in field and shop
to help push this platform on to Wash
ington. Tho sidewalks are too narrow,
and to land it at tho capita) we must nil
walk iu tho middle of the road. When
tho candidates for president and vico
president aro nominated on the St.
Louis platform, 1 expect to bo fonnd
just behind them and right in tho mid
dle of the road. T. V. Powderly in
