WEAVER AND FIELDS.
THEY ARE THE STANDARD DEARERS
OF THE PEOPLE'S PARTY.
Platform and Resolution. Adopted al

Government Railroads and tho Land
for Actual Settlers.
The nomination of General James B.
Weaver for president of tho United
States by the Omaha couvoution was
natural, for General Weaver has been
the foremost man connected with the j
movement. His reputation is national,

Land Strip is known to all who have fol
lowed tho actions of congress for tho
past twelve years. -
His national canvas in 1SS0 demon
strated that he is a speaker and writer
of a very high order.
. General Weaver's strong point is that
he places principle above party disci
pline: that is the reason why ho ap
peared in congress first as a Republican,
later as a Democrat and for the third
time as a third party or Greenback ad
vocate. General Weaver was born fifty-sis
years ago in Dayton. 0. where he was
educated in the public schools, lie was
graduated in 1854 from the law school
of the University of Ohio at Cincinnati.
He practiced law after being admitted
to the bar until the breaking out of the
civil war in 1SG1. when he enlisted as a
private in the Second Iowa infantry,
having removed from Ohio soon after
his admission to the bar cf his nativo
Successive promotions for gallant con

16U3, when he was elected district attor
ney of the Second judicial district of th
state. The next year he was appointed
to the revenue servioo by President
His national career began in the Forty-sixth
congress, to which he was elect
ed after a brilliant campaign. Ho r
appeared in the Forty-ninth congress,
and was re-elected to tho Fiftieth con
gress. It wa3 in the latter body, in the
year 1S87, fliat General Weaver held the
house in his famous deadlock.
His superior qualities made it easy for
him to compel a hearing snch as would
have taken a lesser man many terms to
gain. Every device was resorted to by
the congressional upholders of the x-oxrn
to suppress the member from Iowa, but
his resources were limitless, and diecw
eions upon finance resulted . which at
tracted the attention of the whole na
tion and opened the eyes of hundreds of
thousands of voters to the vicionsneas of
the existing financial system. It mnst
not bo forgotten that General Weaver
left a lucrative and growing practice at
the bar to engage'in the nnremunerstive
pioneer work of r reform. Ho has never
flagged in his courser and stands today
the champion of a new order of things.;
The dominant desire of his lue is to
assist in creating conditions under which
the struggle for existence for the major
ity may be lightened. ' He is a respected
and admired authority.cn various prob
lems of industrial reform, and has writ

vice president of the People's party, is
not an unknown man. ' For thirty years
he has been a lawyer of considerable
prominence in Virginia, his native state;
He is known throughout the country as
a prominent Baptist, having been iden
tified with that denomination for nearly
fifty years, During that time he has
held . several important, offices . in the
S'oiloh Baptist association and was for
several yean its moderator. ; Ha has
meetings of tho denomination. His pop
ularity in his native state may bo judged
from tho fact that ho was elected attor

any opposition, tho other party declin

He was born Feb. 24. 1S20, in Cul
peper county, Va., and there grew to
manhood. He was trained for the law,
which has, been his life profession, and
at an early age' ho went into politics.
Of conrso ho was a Democrat. Ho has
held two offices. In 1S59 ho was ap
pointed the commonwealth's attorney
for Culpeper cqunty, and in 1877 he
was appointed by the govornor to fill an
unexpired term as attorney general for
the state Of Virginia. He was elected
to that ofiice in November of 1877 for
a fall term of four years ending with
Ho enlisted in the Confederate army
on April 17, 1861, resigning his position
as county attorney for that purposo.
He was one of the fainons Cnlpeper
minute men who carried a banner with
a coiled rattlesnake for a devico and
"Don't tread on mo" for a motto. Ho
was one of tho raiders who captured
Harper's Ferry, and was after that pro
moted from the ranks to a ninjorship in
tho Virginia forces. When General A.
P. Hill took command of those forces
Major Fields was assigned to his staff.
Except when incapacitated by wounds
he was continuously in the service from
tho beginning of tho war until tho sur
render at Appomattox, retiring with a
general's commission. He was wounded
at tho first bat do of Cold Harbor, and
at tho engagement known by the nana
of Cedar Creek in tho north and Slaugh
ter Mountain in tho south he lost his
right leg below the knee. He was un
fitted for service for several months,
but in May, 1SC3, rejoined tho army at
Fredericksburg in time to take part in
the campaign which resulted in the bat
tle of Gettysburg.
For many years past General Fields
has owned and tilled a considerable es
tate in Albcinarlo county, Va., besidps
attending to a large legal practice. For
the past seven years ho has favored the
formation of a new party to purify poli
tico. Since 1SS3 he has proclaimed
throughout Virginia that redress for the
grievances of the people could only to
had through a reform organisation. lie
holds that the influence of the party
caucus has grown superior to tho will of
tho constituents of tho party, and there
fore nn-.riso legislation can neither be
repealed nor prevented, thereforo a new
party is a necessity.

PLATFORM OF THE PEOPLE'S PARTY.
A Terso and Comprehensive Declaration
or Vital Principles.
The People's party nsHornblod in na
tional convention ut Omaha on July 4,
1892. nominated James Baird Weaver,
of Iowa, and James Gaven Fields, of
Virginia, for president and vice presi
dent of tho United Str.tes respectively,
and adopted as its preamble and plat
form the following:
Assembled upon the 110th anniversary of
tho Declaration of Independence the lcople's
party of America, lu tbt-ir t'.rat national con
vention, invoking upon ibeir action tbe bless
ing of Almighty God, puts forth, in the name
and on behalf of tho cvple of this country, the
fallowing preamble and declaration of princi
ples: The condl t ions surround! ng us best J ostlf y our
eo-opcraitoa; wo meet in the midst of a nation
brooght to the vergoof moral, political and
material ruin. Corruption dominates the bal
lot box. the legislatures, the congress, and
touches even tho ermine of the bench. The
people are demoralized; uiot of the states
have been compelled to Uobite tbe voters at
the polling places to prevent universal Intimi
dation cr bribery. Tho newspapers are large
ly tuhsidized or muxxlcd: public opinion si
lenced: businet prostrated; our homes cov
ered with mortgages; labor impoverished and
the laud concentrating in the hands of tbe
capitalists. The urban workmen are denied
the right of organization for solf protection:
Imported pau;ieried labor beats down tbclr
wages; a hireling standing nruiy, onrccog
nized by our laws, is established to shoot them
down, and they aro rapidly degenerating into
European conditions. The fruits of the toil of
millions aro boldly stolen to build up colossal
fortunes for a few. unprecedented in the his
tory of mankind; and tho poaeasora of tkew,
in turn, despise the republic and endanger
liberty. Prom the asms prolific wo:nb of th
governmental injustice we breed the two great
classes tramps and-millions ires.
Tbe national power to create money Is ap
propriated to enrich bondholders; a vxst public
debt, payable in legal tender currency, has
been funded Into gold bcariug bonds, thereby
adding millions to the burdens of the people.

all be ht sight of. Tbry rroposo to sacrifice
our homes, lives and children on the altar of
Mammon: to destroy the multitude In order
to secure corruption funds from the million
aire. Assembled on the anniversary of Hie birth
day of the nation, and filled with the spirit of
the grand generation who established our inde
pendence, we seek lo restore tbe government
of the republic to tho bands of "the plain peo
ple." with which class ft originated.
We assert our purposes to be Identical with
the purposes of the national constitution to
form a more perfect Cnlon. establish Justice,
Insure domestic tranqnillity. provido t.r tho
common defense, promote Cto general welfare
and secure tbe blessings of liberty foroursclves
and our posterity.
We doclaro that this republic can onlyen
dnre as a free government while built upon the
love of the whole people for each other and for
tho notion: it cannot be pinned together by
bayonets: that the civil war isovcr. aud that
every passion and resentment which grew ont
of It must dio tlh It. exd that we must be in
fact, as we are In name, the united brother
hood of free men.
Oar country finds Itself confronted by condi
tions for which there Is no precedent la the
history of the world; oar annual agricultural
productions amount to billions of dollars In
value, which must within a few weeks or
months bo exchanged for billions of dollars of
commodities consumed iu their production:
tbe existing currency supply is wholly Inadc
qnato to make this exchangee, the results are
falling prices, the formation of combines and
Hugs, and tho Impoverishment of the pro
ducing class. W pledge ourselves that if
given power we will labor t o correct these evils
by wlso and reasonable legislation, lo accord
ance with the terms of our platform.
We believe that the powers of government
In other words, of tho people should bo ex

While onr sympathies as a party of reform
are naturally upon the side of every proposi
tion which will tend to. make men Intelligent,
irtuons and temperate, we nevertheless re
gard these questions important na thoy are
as secondary to tho great issues now pressing
for solution, and upon which not otuy our In
dividual property but the very existence of
free institutions depend: nn4 wo ssk all men
to first help ns to determine whether we are to
hare a republic to administer before we differ
as to tbe conditions upon which It Is ta be ad
ministered, believing that tho forces of reform
this day organized will never cease to move
forward until every wrong Is remedied and
equal rights and equal privileges securely
labllshed for all the men and women of this
We declare, therefore
That the union of the labor forces of the
United States this day consummated shall
be permanent and perpetual may its spirit
enter Into nil hearts, salvation of the republic
and the uplifting of mankind.
Wealth belongs to him who creates it, and
every dolla taken from Industry without an
equivalent is robbery. "If any man will not
work neither -shall he eat." The interests of
rural and civlo labor are tho satnu; their ene
mies are Identical.
We believe that the tlmo has come when
the rallrond corporations will cither own Die
people or tbo people must own the railroads,
and should the nvernmcnt enter upon the
work of owning and managing any and all
railroads wo should favor an amendment to

placed under a civil service rcgulntlou of the
most rigid character, so as to prevent tho iu

We demand a national currency, sofa, sound

We demand that the amount of the circaliU

We believe that the moneys of the country
should be kept as much as possible in the
hands of the people, and hence we demand
that all national aud state revenues shall bs
limited to the necessary cxiiensea, economically
and honestly administered.
We demand that postal savings banks be es

Transportation being a means of exchange
and a publlo necessity, tbe government should

The telegram and telephone, like the post

by he guvrrnmeni In theinutrestof the people.
The land. Including all the natural sources
of wealth, la the heritage of all the people, aud
abould not tie monopolized for speculative pur
poses, and alien ownership of land should be

Do a Little Thinking.
The farmer or mechanic who will get
scared at tho dep. cry of "cheap
money" Is an a? u Can he not remem
ber when we had cheap money wheu it
took only one-half the amount of labor
or produce to secure a dollar that it does
todav? Was ' not that cueap money
easier to get? And was there not a job
for every man that wanted to work?
But provisions wero higher! Oh, yes;
provisions were higher; but after yon
had supplied your family and paid yonr
taxes, did you not as a rule have some
money left; and if perchanee you wero
slightly in debt, did you have to lot yonr
children go barefooted and hungry in
order to keep up the interest? Compare
the present with the days of cheap
money, yon party blind groups, and tell
if you can who the fellows are who haro
been benefited by dear money. Man
