The ad raul of the Iramlava at Ray a Farm

Everything wasnsw. and stranga, nothing

-Btrawlajii ius were- jaw ripening; when tbf
Tramlays appeared at Hayn Farm, and tb
little Tramlays were allowed to forage at

then came other berries, ia the hrarables of

"Edgar. Mr Tramlay would say, "you

"He's respectable, and thoroughly under

-"two reasons, estbsr of wuicb is good enough
to make me like a man, unless bu happens to

-- Ho Tramlay continued to devote hours to
chat with bis boat, pressing high priced cigart
on biin. and sharing the farmer's pipes and
obaocu in return. He found that Hayn, like
any other farmer with brains, had done seine
hard thinking in tba tboosauux of days wnen
his bands were employed at common work,
and that bis views of affuirs in general, out

PEOPLE'S PARTY PLATFORM
A TefKttf fttitl ComprehetiHlvA Deolarittlon
of Vital rrlnrlplcH,
The People's iarty asseiublufl in na
tional convention ut Omaha on July 4,
1802. nominated James Baird Weaver,
of Iowa, and James Gaven Fields, of
Virtfinia, for president and vice presi
dent at tho United States res)ectivel't
and adopted aa IU preamble and plat
form tbe following:
Afwcmblcd upon tbo HGth anniversary of
tho Declaration of Iudpcndence tbo People's
party of America, in (heir Crai nntionnJ con
vention, Invokiui; upon their action tho bless
Ins of Almighty Utd, luL- forth. In tho name
and ou bchaif of tho people of thU country, the
following prcamblu and doclaratlon of princi
ples: The conditions tmrrounding ns best Justify our
co-operation; wo meet in the midst of a nation
brought to the verge of moral, political and
material ruin. Corruption dominate tho bal
lot box, the IcKUlaturo. tho confrress, and
touches even the iTiiiina of tho bench. The
people are demoralized; most of tbe Btalcs
have lmen compelled to isotato tlie voteraat
the polling place, to prevent universal intimi
dation or bribery. The ucwpipers are lartro
ly subsidized or muzzled; public opinion ai
lencvd; busincaa prostrated; our homes vr
ered with niorttfnses; labor impoverished and
the land concentratliis in tbe bands of tbe
capitalists. The urban workmen aro denied
thertebtof organiriiion for self protection;
Imported pauperized labor beats down their
wages; a hireling t landing army, nnrecott
niied by our laws, is catablUhcd to shoot them
down, and they are rapidly dctreneriitine into
European conditions. Tbe fruits of tho toil of
millions are boldly stolen to build up colossal
fortunes for a few. unprecedented in the his
lory of mankind: and the postvessors of lhrc.
In turn, doepi&e the republic and endanger
liberty. From the same prolific wtmib of the
Governmental injustice we breed tho two crest
closfca UaMi!s and millionaire.
Tho national power to create money is ap
prop rin led lo enrich landholders; a vast public
debt, payablo ia leal tender currency, has
been funded into geld bearing bonds, thereby
addlne mlliions to the burdens of the people.

V.hlie our sympathies as a party of reform
are naluraliy upon the side of every proposi

virtuous and temperate, we nevertheless re
tard these questions important as Ihcy are
as secondary to the great Issues now pressing

dividual property but the very existence of
Tree institutions depend: asfl w afk all men

Wo declare, therefore
That the union of the labor forces of the
I'nlted Slates this day consummated shall
be permanent aud perpetual may Its spirit
enter into all hearts, salvation of the republic

Wealth belongs tn him who creates it. and

Resolved. That we condemn tba fallacy of
