forth in the platform adopted by the
democratic convention of 100S.
We denounce lbu lepublicun taritV

fraud deliberately planned by the re
publican leaders when they promised
revision instead of reduction; and we
call attention to the fact , that it con
fesses the truth of all that tho demo
crats have charged as to the iniquities
of the high tnrlir system.
We call special attention to the fact
that one plank contained in both the
democratic state and national plat
forms for J 003, namely, the plank de
manding a constitutional amendment
specilically indorsing the income tax,
has since been accepted by a repub

We pledge the rjeinocl at le paity lu

tho next session of the legislature of a
constitutional amendment providing
for the initiative and referendum.
Reasserting our purpose to give the
peoplo of the state of Nebraska guar

tention to the fact that the suspension
of that law by tho federal court em
phasizes the position taken by the
ilomoerutiu party of Nebraska in its

enactment of such laws as may bo
