"We declare that we are not en

companies. We aro proud of their
efficiency as mediums of transporta
tion and rejoice in their mechanical
and .scientific development and their
improved facilities for the transporta
tion of persons and property, and we
pledge to defend their every right
and redress their every wrong. Yet
we cannot shut our. eyes to plain
facts nor submit to the rule of the
state and nation by railroad influ
ence. "We, therefore, demand of the
board of railroad commissioners an
honest and earnest enforcement of all
provisions of existing laws against
rebates and all manner of discrimina
tions and of the legislature intel
ligent, fair supplementary legislation
to the end that both the railroads
and the public may have justice.
"Of all the evil of railroad dis
crimination, none are so Insidious, so
constant and so nowerful for evil as
the free and complimentary pass. It
muzzles the press, silences discussion,
stifles and prevents legislation, cor
rupts justice, dominates and directs
public conventional opinion, deter
mines business and social success,
and, in a great measure, controls pub
lic affairs. In principle, it is as un
just as unusual taxation, and in prac
tice, much more unjust; and it is
affiliated with every other economic
evil of the age. It is estimated that
more than one-third of the passenger
mileage upon railroads In Kansas is
now fr$eso that at the rate of 3
cent's per mile the railroads realize
upon their total mileage less than 2
cents per mile. We therefore de
mand the immediate abolition of the
free pass, and all other like devices,
and the establishment of a passenger
rate of 2 cents per mile for adults,
with proportionate reductions for
cnnaren, as now.

Cascarets do this naturally, without

They don't help the Bowels and Liver in
such a way as to make them lean upon
similar assistance for the future.
This Is why, with Cascarets, the dose

Instead of increased, as it must be with all
other Cathartics and Laxatives.
Cascarets act like exercise.

the near approach of elections mak
ing spasmodic spurts of prosecutions
between elections, and at all times
extending immunity to favorites in
the liquor trade, thus playing fast
and loose and blowing hot and cold.
Each faction being made to believo
that it was getting the best of the
other in this game of duplicity, hy
pocrisy, falsehood and deception, and
each joining hands with the other
until the political union for base par
tisan purposes of the wet with the
dry, of the saint with the sinner, of
the temperance howler with the liquor
seller, of 'the puritan' with the black
leg, has become a fixed condition
against which it is impossible for
honest men longer to contend.
"It was in the year 1883 and under
the first democratic administration
this state has ever had, that of Hon.
George W. Glick, that the Jaw was
enacted reducing passenger fares on
railroads to , maximum of 3 cents
per mile, and the first railroad com
mission was then created by law.
And we pledge our candidates for
railroad commissioners to take such
action as may be warranted by ex
isting conditions. In these days of
corporate encroachment and of eva
sions and defiance of the law by the
law's corporate creations, we deem
it wise to make It plain the attitude
of democracy toward this situation
by declaring that we are as our party
has always been, in favor of the en
forcement of all laws, particularly
those enactments passed to circum
scribe and control the exercise of
corporate power, and for such new
legislation as may be necessary to
make sure the supremacy of the peo
ple's law over all its subjects, both
natural and artificial.
"We make no war upon material
prosperity nor the beneficiaries there
of, so long as they recognize the
dominion of the people's government,
but we do declare for the rigid,
rigorous, faithful and efficient exer
cise of governmental powers to the
end that the domination of the mighty
over the many shall cease, and that
the feeble, as well as the forceful,
the poor as well as the powerful,
shall be equal before the law.

tive and referendum to the end that
local self-government may be realized
