.Thomas S. Allen, of Lincoln, was
chosen chairman, any Herbert S. Dan
iels, secretary of the State committee.-
Messrs. ' Kennedy, Wolfe, Horst
and Davis on the above ticket are'
'populists. Fusion was secured,
rne lonowing piatrorm ' was
"The democrats of Nebraska fn
state convention assembled renew
their allegiance to the party of Jef
ferson, Jackson and Bryan. '
"We rejoice at the rapid growth of
democratic sentiment throughout the
country and appreciate the compli
ment 'bestowed upon the party when,
its principles and doctrines are bodily;
appropriated by- the few progressive
leaders of the republican party. We
watch with interest their efforts to
force their party to accept democratic
doctrine and we deplore the hopeless-
ness of their task. To their follow
ers, however, wo extend a Hearty in
vitation to become democrats in fact,
as thev are In snlrit. and to loin the
democratic ranks under the leader
ship of America's distinguished states
man, William J. Bryan. r
"We extend to Mr. Bryan a hearty
welcome home. We rejoice that he
stands today as a conspicuous and
central figure in the great moral and'
political revolution which Is now
sweeping over the country. While all
the states rejoice that he has become
the first citizen of the world it re
mains only for our -state to boast
that it gave him political birth and
started him upon the highway of
fame and usefulness.
"We recognize that in the present
campaign state Issues are dominant,
-and to the people of Nebraska regard
less of party we offer certain pledges
and ' promise their prompt execution
if entrusted with the administration
of state government.
"We will pass a comprehensive di
rect primary law for the whole state,
under which party candidates for all
offices shall be nominated by the di
rect vote of the people.
"We will enact a stringent anti
pass law to prohibit all persons ex
cept bona fide railway employes and
stockmen in actual charge of live
stock from! accepting or riding upon
.railroad passes, and to prohibit rail
roads from issuing them and to pun
ish railroad officials for the violation
of the law, making each violation a
misdemeanor, punishable by fine and
'forfeiture of office in case of public
officials and by fine In all other cases,
Until this is accomplished we shall en
force the present anti-pass law, here
tofore neglected and obsolete upon
the statute books of the state.
"We will pass a law providing for
a maximum passenger fare within
the state of Nebraska of two cents a
mile including penalties for its vio
lation. "We will enforce through the state
board of equalization the equal aud
just assessment of all property in the
state, including railroad property, up.
on the basis of the actual value of the
stocks and bonds.
"We endorse the proposed amend
ment to the constitution providing for
a railway commission as "a step in the
right direction and pledge our candi
dates if elected to give the commis
sion the fullest support and broadest
powers for bringing relief to the peo
ple from the present unjust and ex
orbitant freight rates and. discrimina
tions. .. "We declare in favor of the plan of
adopting the same railroad valuations
for. purposes of taxation that are
adopted for the purpose of regulating
railroad rates 'and railroad earnings,
and we demand .that the legislature
empower the elective railroad com
mission to appraise and. determine the
actual value of the railroad corpora
tions and other common carriers of
the state for these two purposes.
"We point to the scandalous record
of the last legislature whioh at the
bidding of its bosses defeated the anti
pass bill, bills reducing freight"1 rates,
the dlrept primary bill, the bill .to ac
sess the railroad property on the value
of its stock and bonds, and which
indulged in wild extravagance of ap-
