OC It NATIONAL PLATFORM.
The Feople'a Party Platform Adopted
at Omaha July 4, 1802.
Assembled upon the 116th anniversary
of the Declaration of Independence, the
People's party of America, in their first
national convention. Invoking upon
their action the blessings of Almighty
God, puts forth In the came and on be
half of the people of this country the
folloy ing preamble and declaration of
The conditions which surround us
best justify our co-operation. We meat
la the midst of a nation brought to the
verge of moral, political and material
rnin. Corruption dominates the ballot
box, the legislatures, the congress, and
touches even the ermine of the bench.
The people are demoralized; most of
the states have been compelled to Iso
late the voters at the polling places to
pre ventunlversal intimidation or brl
bery. The newspapers are largely sub
sidized or muzzled, publio opinion
silenced; business prostrated; our homes
covered with mortgages; labor Impover
ished and the land concentrating in the
hands of capitalists. The urban work
men are denied the right of - organiza
tion for self protection; Imported pau
perlzed labor beats down their wages, a
hireling standing army, unrecognized
by our laws, Is established to shoot
them down; and they are rapidly do-
generating into European conditions.
The fruits of the toll of millions are
boldly stolen to build up colossal for
tunes for a few, unprecedented In the
hostory of mankind; and the possessors
of these, la turn, despise the republic
and endanger liberty. From the same
prollflo womb of governmental injustice
we breed the two great classes tramps
and millionaires. The national power
to create money Is appropriated to en
rich bondholders. A vast public debt,
payable in legal tender currency, has
been funded into gold-bearing bonds,
thereby adding millions to the burdens
of the people.
Silver, which has been accepted as
coin since the dawn of history has been
demonetized to add to the purchasing
power of gold by decreasing the value
of all forms of property as well as hu
man labor, and the supply of currency
Is purposely abridged to fatten usurers,
bankrupt enterprise and enslave indus
tries. A vast conspiracy against man
kind has been organized on two conti
nents and It Is rapidly taking possession
of the world. If not met and over
thrown at once, It forebodes terrible
social convulsions, the destruction of
civilization or the establishment of an
We have witnessed for more than
quarter of a century the struggles
of the two great political parties
for power aad plunder, while griev
ous wrongs have been mnictea
upon a sunering people, we onarge
that the controlling Influences dominat
ing both these parties have permitted
the existing dreadful conditions to de
velop, without serious efforts to prevent
or restrain them. Neither 4o they now
promise as any substantial reform.
They have agreed together to ignore,
n the coming campaign, every issue
but one. They propose to drown the
outcries of a plundered people with the
uproar of a sham battle over the tariff,
ao that capitalists, corporations, nation
al banks, rings, trusts, watered stock,
ths demonetization of silver and the
our homes, lives and children on the
altar of mammon; to dostroy the multi
tude in order to secure corruption tunas
from the millionaires.
Assembled en the anniversary of the
birthday of the nation and filled with
the spirit of the grand generation
which established our independence,
we seek to restore the government of
the republic to the hands of "the plain
people," with whom it originated.
a We assert our purposes to be identical
with the purposes of the national con
stitution: "To form a more perfect
union, establish Justice, insure domes
tlo tranquility, provide for the common
defence, promote the general welfare,
and Bcsure the blessings of liberty to
ourselves and our posterity."
We declare that this republic can only
sndure as a free government while built
upon the love of the whole people for
each other and for the nation; that it
cannot be pinned together by bayonet;
that the civil war is over and that
every pasalon and resentment which
gre ot it must die with it, and
that we must be in fact as we are in
same, the united brotherhood of free

While our sj mpathles as a party of
reform are nr.turally upon the side of
every proposition which will tend to
make men Intelligent, virtuous and
temperate, we nevertheless regard
these questions, important as they are,
aa secondary to ue great issues now
pressing for solution, and upon which
not only our individual prosperity, but
the very existence of free institutions
depend; and we ask all men to first
help us to determine whether we are to
have a republic to administer, before
we differ as to the conditions upon
which It is to be administered. Believ
ing that the forces of reform this day
organized will never cease to more
forward until every wroig is remedied,
and equal rights and equal privileges
securely established for all men and
women of the country, therefore:
lrst That the union of the labor
forces of the United States, this day
consummated, shall be permanent and

hearts for the salvation of the republic
and the uplifting of mankind.

government enter upon the work of

We demand that the amount of circu

not less than $50 per capita.
We demand a graduated Income tax.
We believe that the moneys of the
country should be kept as much as pos

hence we demand that all state and
national revenues shall be limited to

Transportation being a means of ex

Many hundred years ago there liveii
a goou ana uouio woman wiioae name
wart Frau Rosalinda von Lindenburg,
In those days a cruel war was laylDg
waste the land.and she had to fly from
her home iu the dead of night, with
her two children. At first bhe knew
not where to go, but her old 6erving-
niaa begged her to go with him to his
own people, who lived In a little min
ing village awny, hidden In the Harz
mountains. No the noble countess
put hei-Kelf in his care, and his broth
era nnd felsters were very kind to the
poor wanderers, tdok tliein in and
gave them the best tliey had.
Hut the best they had was very poor,
and, at first, the dainty-reared woman
ana children camo near starving.
liiere was no meat, no fish, and uot
even an egg; und this last for the good
reason that there was not a fowl in the
settlement These demestie fowls that
seem so common to us, and that we
see everywhere, at first came from the
far east, and had at thnt time only
lieen seen in large cities and towns.
Ana mcho mountain folks liait never
even heard of such "strange birds."
no me countess decided to repay
their kindness. Hhe secretly sent her
old Hervaut down to their old home,
lucre he found the castle almost
wholly destroyed, but was lucky
enough to gather up a large number
of the chickens that still roosted about
their old homo. lie brouirht thein up
to the mountain and great was the
surprise of all the peasants as they saw
tiie queer liirus.
Hut a few weeks afterward they
were still more astonthhed and de
lighted, for a young brood of chicks
was shown to them by tho kind count
ess, t), how the villuire children
laughed and clapped tltcir hands at
the sight of the ollttle, downy, bright-
eyed creatures, who were so strong and
spry, and who followed the old hen
about to pick up their food ou the very
day they came out of their shells.
Huch a contrast to the blind, bald,
ugly little fledglings that they saw iu
the nest in the hedges.
Now the countess saved up her eggs
until she had enough for a feast, when
she invited all the housewives to come
to taste the new food, and learn how
to prepare it At the close of the feast
she gave each family a number of
fowls to take home aud use for her
When Easter came, she was anxious
to do something for the children, and
ll occurreu to ner tuat as the egg was
the sign of new life it would be a nice
thing to have an egg festival for the
children's Easter treat. Ho she took
mosses and roots, and with them
colored some of tho eirirs sayintr that
"the earth laid aside her mantle of snow
in the spring, and Uod himself made
the fruit and berries not only good
to eat, but pleasant to look upon.,"
On Easter Sunday, after the villag
ers had met for their simple service,
she called all the little ones, and after
talking pleasantly to them for a while,
she led them into a grove near by.
There she told them to play about,and
pretend they were little birdies, and
make themselves some cute little nests.
Then she called them to her house, or
cottage, and gave them a little feast of
the best she could prepare. It was
only some nice milk-soup, with cooked
eggs, and egg cakes.
When they had finished their feast
they heard a great whistling, and coo
ing, and squeaking in the grove where
they had left their nests. What could
be the matter? The children ran back
to see, and lo! in every nest there were
live beautiful colored eggs, and on one
of these a little rhyme was painted.
Imagine the surprise and delight of
these simple children. They talked
among themselves and wondered where
they came from.
"What a strange hen it must be to
lay eggs of so many colors!" said one.
"Oh, I do not think that hens lay
such hard eggs," said another. But a
third one said:
"I ua sure it was that dear little
hare I saw jumping out from behind
the bushes where I made my nest"
This idea seemed to please the little
ones uud they ull shouted together:
"Yes, yes tlu little hare laid the
colored e if U si" And they kept ou re
peating it until they begun to be
Not long afterward, a the countea
i.t talking to tho children, who wax
it that tho little daughter saw turning
up the moutitain? It wn the dear
father, the husband whom tltty all

EASTER IN ATHENS.
Tbe Story of tbe Reaarrection Told
Amid a Illaze ef silver and Gold.
For some time before Easter, says
Mr. Rodd, in his "Customs and Lore of
Modern Greece," the city of Athens
wears a picturesque aspect This is
due in great part to the number of
shepherds who, with their flocks, have
come down from the mountains, and
are camped in every available open
space, engaged in selling their lambs.
There is no family so poor as not to
break the long Lenten fast with aa
Easter lamb, the value of which is
about a dollar, and a veritable mas
sacre of the innocents is going on. It
is late on Saturday night that the real
Easter celebration takes place. .
An Immense crowd fills all the ap
proaches to the cathedral, and such
parts of the church as Bre not kept
clear. Without, a raised platform has
been ere jted, and decorated with ever
greens. In the cathedral tho royal princes,
the ministers of state and the high
functionaries of the kingdom assem
ble to attend the midnight service.
As the hour of midnight approaches,
the Metropolitan with his assistants,
preceded by the cross and banners,
advance with lighted tapers. The va
rious notabilities light their tapers
from that of the archbishop, and so
the sacred fire is communicated to the
