was called to order at 2 p. m. and
hreo reports made by the committee.
After speeches had been made by ex-
Senator Joseph E. Bagloy ( high tax )
indHon. John Sivngo ( low { ax ) and
several amendments , the majority
report of the committee was adopted
unid great enthusiasm , although the
ow tax element wus largo in mem-
iera. The platform ia to be in some
logreo a compromise between both
wings of the party and its hearty en-
lorsomont indicates that a bail's has
> een reached upon which , with few
xcoptiona , harmony and reconcillin-
ion can bo reached.
The platform considered the state
ubt proper , with accrued in-
erost , a valid and sacred obligation ,
nd proposes paying tlio same less war
nterost ; tenders to creditors of the
tate as a settlement of the remainder
f the state debt ono half of principal
nd accrued interest by issuo-
ng bonds of the state
earing interest at three per
ent per annum for the first
en years , at 4 per cent , from then un-
il maturity ; oppose monopolies ;
avers the establishment of a commis-
ion to prevent discrimination In
aver of through and against
ocal freights by railways ; favors the
ublie school system and arraigns the
opublican party for its total disregard
f all civil service reform in levying
pen employes of the government for
olitical purposes.
After the platform had boon adopt-
d , Hon. D. 13. Cooper , representative
f the high tax wing , announced that
