CHICAGO , III. , Juno 23. Tbo report of the
platform committee was as follows :
Section 1. The roproiontativos of the dem
ocratic party of thu United Stntoa , Iu con
vention assembled , do alllrm tnolr allegiunco
to the principles of the party as formulated
by Jefferson and exemplified by a Ions :
and illustrious line of bis successors In dem
ocratic leadership , from Madison to Clove-
land. Wo bellcvo that the public welfare
demands that these principles ba applied to
tbo conduct of the federal government
through the accession to power of
the party that advocates thorn , ana
wo solemnly declare that the uoed of a
return to these fundamental principles ol a
free popular government , b.ised upon homo
rule and Individual liberty , was never moro
urgent than now , when the tendency to
centralize nil power at the federal cnpital
has become a menace of the reserved rights
of the states , and strikes at the vorv roots of
our government under the constitution , as
trained by tno republic.
federal Control of Elections.
Sec. 2. Wo warn the people of our common
country , jealous for tha preservation of their
free Institutions , that the policy of federal
control of flections to which the republican
party has committed molt U fraught with
the gravest dangers , scarcely lots inomontous
than would result from it revolution prac
tically establishing monarchy on the ruins
of the republic. It strikes at the north as
well as at the south , and Injures the colored
citizens oven more than the whites : it means
n hoard of deputy marshals at tha polling
place nnnod with federal rower , returning
boards appointed nnd'contralled uy a federal
authority , the outrage of the electoral rights
of the people in the several states , the subju
gation of the colored people to the control of
tbo party in power and the revival of rnto
antagonism , now happily abated , of the ut
most peril to the safety nud happiness of all :
a measure deliberately and Justly described
by u leading republican senator as
"iho most lufamuous bill that ever crossed
thj threshold o ( Jbo sonato. " Such policy ,
If sanctioned by law , wo'.a nSan luti uom-
.Inaiico of a sclt-porpotuntini ; oligarchy of
* filcolioldcrii , and the partv tlrst entrusted
With its machinery could bo dlsloged from
'power only by an appeal to tbo reserved
right ot thu people to resist oppression , which
U Inherent In all solf-governtni ; communltloi.
Two year * ago this revolutionary policy was
emphatically condemned bv the people at iho
poll * , but in contempt of that verdict , tha ro-
jiubllcau party has dcilanlly declared in Its
Uloit authoritative unaiaucvs that iu me-
U' i Iu tbo couiiui ; vlcvtlous will uivuu tuo
enactment of the force bill and the usurpa
tion of despotic control over elections In all
the n tat on ,
Bollovlnp that the preservation of repub
lican Rovrrnmont in the United States U de
pendent upon the defeat of this policy of
legalised force nnd fraud , wo Invlto the sup
port ot all citizens who dcvlro to see the con
stitution maintained In Us integrity with the
laws nursuant thereto , which have given our
country 100 years of unexampled pros
perity ; nnd wo pledge the democratic party ,
if it bo entrusted with power , not only to the
defeat of the force bill , but also to wnifo re
lentless opposition to the republican policy
of prolllgato expenditure which , in the short
spnco 01 two years , has squandered an enor
mous surplus nnd emptied nn overflowing
treasury , nftcr plllnir now burdens of taxa
tion Upon the already overtaxed labor of the
Tha Turin * I'hink.
Sec. 3. Wo roltcrato the oft repeated doc
trines of tbo democratic party that necessity
of the government Is the only Jiutllluatlon
for taxation , nnd whenever it tax Is unneces
sary , it is unjustifiable ; that whun custom
house taxation U levied npon articles of any
kind not produced In this country , the differ
ence between tuo coU of labor hero nud
labor abroad , when such u difference exists ,
fully measures any possible benelits to labor ,
nnd the enormous additional impositions of
the existing tariff fall with crushing force
upon our farmers und worklngmcn nnd for
the advantage of the few , whom It enriches ,
exacts from labor n crossly unjust share of
the expenses of the government ; nnd wo de
mand such revision of the tariff laws as will
remove their Iniquitous inequalities , lighten
their oppressions and put them on a consti
tutional nnd equitable busts.
But In making a reduction In taxoi It is
not proposed to Injure any domestic Indus
tries , but rather to promote their healthy
growth. From the foundation of this gov
ernment taxes collected at the custom house
have boon the chief source of federal reve
nue. Such they must continue to bo. More
over , many Industries have cotno to rely
upon legislation for successful continuance ,
so that any chance of the law must ba at
every stop regardful of labor arid capital
thus Involved. The process of reform must
bo subjected in Its execution to the plain dic
tate of justice.
Will Itepoal the McKlnloy I.au- .
We denounce the McKlnloy tariff law enacted -
acted by the Fifty-lirst congress aj the cul
minating atrocity of class legislation ; wo en
dorse the efforts made by the democrats of
the present congress to modify Its most op
pressive features in the direction of froornw
materials and cheaper manufucturoa cnods
that enter Into general consumption , and wo
promise Its repeal as ono of the beneficent
results that will follow the action of the people
ple in cntiustlug power to the democratic
Since tho.McKinloy tariff went Into opera
tion there have been ten reductions of the
wages of laboring men to ono Increase.Vo
deny that there has been any increase of
prosperity to the country slnco that tariff
wont into oparatlon , nnd wo point to tbo
dullness and distress which wage reductions
und strikes cause In tbo Iron trade as the best
possible evidence that no such prosperity has
resulted from the AlcKlnloy act , Wo call the
attention of tbo thoughtful Americans to the
fact that after thirty years of restrictive
taxes and the importation of foreign
wealth in exchange for our agricultural sur
plus , tno homes and farms of the country
have become buuloncd with a real cstato
mortgage of over f2,500,000.000exclusive of
nil ott or forms of Indebtedness ; tnnt In ono
of the chief agricultural states of the west
there appears a real cstato mortgage debt
averaging $105 per capita of the total popu
lation ; und tnnt similar conditions and ten
dencies are shown to oxlst In tbo other agri
cultural states. Wo denounce a policy which
fosters no Industry so much as it do'os that
of the sheriff.
Sec. 4. Trade Interchange on the basts of
reciprocal advantages to the country IB a
timu-houorod doctrine of the democratic
faith ; but wo deiiouncu the sham reciprocity
which Juggles with the people's desire for
enlarged foreign njarkot * and freer i-xcbango
by pretending to establish closer trade re
lations for a country whoso articles of ox-
export are almost exclusively agricultural
products , with other countries thut are ulso
agricultural , whtlo erecting a custom house
bar of prohibitive taxes against the richest
countries of the world that stand ready to
tuKo our entire surplus of products and to
exchanpo therefor commodities \vlucn are
necessaries and comforts of Ufa among our
TrnsU and Combinations.
Sec. 5. Wo recognize In Iho trusts and
combinations , which are designed to on.iblo
capital to secure more than its just share of
the Joint product of capital and labor , the
natural consequence of the prohibitive taxes
which prevent that free competition which
is the life of honest trade ; but wo bellovo
their worst evils can bo abated by law , and
wo demand tbo rigid oniorcotnent of the
laws made to prevent und control them , to-
gotbor with sucn further legislation in re
straint of their ubuses as experience may
show to be necessary.
Soe. 0. The republican party , while pro
fessing policy of reserving tbo public land
fur small holdings by actual Bottlers , has
given away the people's heritage ) until now
u few railroads and non-resident alien i , Indiw
viduai and corporate , possesses u larger urea
than that of all our farms oatwoan two seas.
The lost democratic administration re
versed Iho Improvident and unwtso policy of
tbo republican party regarding tbo publlo
domain , und reclaimed from corporations and
syndicates , alien and domestic , and restored
to the pooplu nearly ono hundred million
acres of valuable lands to bo sacredly bold as
homesteads for our citizens , and wo pledge
ourselves to continue tins policy until every
acre of Ian4 so unlawfully bold shall bo re
claimed und restored to the people.
On the Coinage Oucntlon.
Sec. 7. Wo denounce tbo republican legis
lation known us the Sherman act of 1890 , as
a cowardly makoshjlt fraught with possibil
ities of danger in tbo future which should
muko nil nf its suprortor * , as well as Its
uutaor , unxlous for its soccdy repeal. Wo
hold to the use ot oolb gold and silver as the
standard money of tuu country and Iho
coinugo of both gold and silver without dis
criminating against cither metal or charge
for culnage , but tbo dollar unit of
culnago of both .matals must beef
of equal Intrinsic and exchangeable
value , or bo adjusted through Inter
national agreement , or by Mich safeguards
ot legislation as shall insure tbo maintenance
of the parity of the two motaU , und tbo cqua
power of every dollar at all times in tuo'
markets and in the pkymant of d'ibts ' ; and
wo demand that all piper currency shall bo
Ueptat par with and redeemable in such
com , \'o Insist upon this parity as espe
cially necessary for the protection of tbo
funning und laboring classes , iho llrt and
most defcuboless victims of unstabln money
and u Ilnctuntlnir currency.
See 8. SVo recommend that the prohibitory
tax onstuto bank Issues bo repealed.
Civil Sen let ) Id-form.
hoc. 0. Public oftlco Is a publlo trust. Wo
reanlrm the declaration of tbo democratic-
national convention of 1S70 for the reform of
tha civil service nnd wo call for the honest
enforcement of ult laws rcnulatlni ; the same.
The nomination of a president , as in tbo re
cent republican convention , by delegations
composed largely ot his appointees , holding
ofllco at his pleasure , 11 n scandalous satire
on free popular Institutions and a striking it-
ustratlou of the methods by which a presi
dent may gratify hu ambition.
Wo denounce tbo policy under which federal
oftlcoholcicrs usurp control uf party conven
tions in the states and wo pledgu tuo demo
cratic party to the reform of tuoju und all
i ther ubusos which threaten tbo liberty of
ocal self government.
Sec. 10. Th'J democratic party is tun only
party that bas over given the country a for >
clgn policy comment and vigorous compell
ing respect abroad and inspiring conlldonco
at homo. Without dancer of tangling alli
ances U has mined to cultivate friendly ro-

Wo favor the maintenance ot a navy strong

the country abroad.
Sympathy for the IttuMiui .Tow * .
Sec. II. This country has always boon the
refuge ot the oppressed from every land-
exiles for conscionra--and in the spirit ot
the founders of our government wo condemn
the oppression practiced by the Russian

use Its prompt nnd bt t efforts to bring
about n cessation of tbeso cruel persecutions
in the dominions of the czar and to secure to
the oppressed equal justice.
thy to those lovers of freedom who are strug
gling for notno rule nud the great causa of

importance , in which the general govern

powers of tbo worla and. appreciating the
acceptance of many of such powers of the In

to the grandeur of the undertaking , wo are
of the opinion that congress should make

tional honor and public faith.
Education and the I'ubllc Schools.
Sec. 17. Popular education being the only
safe basis of popular suffrage , wo recommend

oral appropriation for tbo public schools
Free common schools are the nursery
of good government and they have

CHICuio , 111. , Juno 23. The making of
the platform consumed a longer tlmu than
had boon anticipated , and it was not until 7
o'clock thut iho Inn plank had been adopted.
The silver question was iho stumbling block
to tbo committee and provoked on earnest
discudsion between the absolute free coinugo
men and their moro conservative ussoclatcs.
Patterson of Colorado , Daniel of Virginia and
tbo mnmbor from North Carolina were the
principal ipoakora in behalf of a straight
free coinage declaration , whlla Vllns of
Wisconsin und Bayard of Delaware led the
other bide. All of iho speakers wcro in
favor ot bimetallism and Mr. Bayard In his
speech made a strong argument in favor of
the ufco of both nietats. lie tuid that when
secretary of state ho did all In
uls power to urlug ubout a cotnwou
International blmetnlllo agreement. The
question turned really on the use of the
word free In tbo' , platform nud this
word was strickenout. Iho argument
against Its use was that It hnd como to hnvo
n moanlnit attached , to Us use which must
result In any platform .contaliuni ; the word
being construed popularly In iho sense of n
free coinage of silver proposition in Its
common acceptance , as cniucdlod In the
wishes of the silver states. For this rcastn
n motion was carried by a vote of 30 to
18 , including In the majority sldo
the vote of Mr. Crafts of Illinois , who was
presiding , rejecting that part of the plank
containing the word "free. " The result In
coUimittco was not satisfactory lo Mr. Pat
terson and the other free coinage men , nnd
notlco was given that they would light this
plank In the convention.
As ndopted the plank is rognrdod ns Indi

Tbo opponents of the ox-president will

tbo Tammany leaders from continuing
the hitler war on the ox-president
which they Inaugurated on their arrival
horo. It Is not believed they will continue
the light after the nomination , but their
Btrouuous efforts to compass bis defeat in tbo

MAKING A HAltU FIGHT.

In Hot Water.
"CIIICAOO , 111. , Juno 22 , It was after 1 p. m.
today before even Iho subcommittee of the
platform committee got lo work , and Iho sil
ver fight was still unsettled , nnd tbo mem
bers of the main committee waited patiently
until 10l0 : ! p. m. and tbcn adjourned for din
ner. Patterson of Colorado , the -loader of
the silver men , though bo had conducted a
florco and almost continuous struggle , lasting
until 0:30 : a. m. , was ns vigorous looking und
full of light apparently a : ni ttio beginning.
The other members of the subcommittee
pave unmisialtablo signs of weariness.
Patterson had has coat off'and , moving
about in his shirt sleeves , helped keep the
anti-silver members in a constant perspira
tion. Ex-Secretary Whitney , the Cleveland
loader , though not a member of the sub
committee , was iu their counsels nearly all
Iho llmo. Ho was urging harmony , nnd
wilh Vilas , Bayard and ethers wns laboring
to soothe Patterson and other westerners.
Gerard of Georgia , who had stood by tbo
Rocky mountain delegation staunchly during
tbo night session , was inclined to now ac
cept small concessions , but tbo mountain
men were stubborn , and word was sent to
the wigwam suggesting an adjournment of
Iho convention to give the platform makers
Bayard personally complimented Patter
son as a "splendid fighter" when word
arrived soon afterwards that the convonllon
hud taken a recess until Tip. in. Patterson
bowed bls.ucKnowlodgmont und then again
wonl at his opponents with energy aud a de
termination that seemed unconquerable.

CHICAGO , 111. , Juno 22. A youthful dlvlna
of the Methodist Episcopal churcii Is thollrsl
to glvo ofllclal intimation thut God Is to bo
with. I ho democratic party in the coming
cumpalgn. The opening prayer in the con
vention was very gratifying to iho laymen of
democracy today , nnd that asstiranua ot
dlvino nssistanco is nutborltatlvo , the wags
of the party insist to bo amply demonstrated
oy the Information coming from the churcU
which they hnvo so often denounced as being'
a disguised adjunct of the republican
party. It Is expected there will
bo four or live moro prayers
offered In the present national convention ,
but It is said that twenty gentlemen of tha
c.oth have been active competitors for the
honor of addressing the Almighty In tha
democratic convention. Young men proun-
nbly number n majority of tboso applicants ,
and the raven haired yqung enthusiast \yho
oflered the prayer today Is said to bo the
youngest man who cveruddrcssed the throua
of grace from a democratic platform.
Cheered thii 1'arson.
The audience cnvu demonstrative npproval
of this fervent dlvino wticn ho endorsed
democratic principles by asking the Almighty
to guide the Trainers of the natty platform so
that the true aavocato of labor , liberty and
the rights of mou should bo able to ll'id a
place whcro ho might stand croct for the
principles that have mada the past of
the nation glorious , nnd that should
ninko the future still moro glorious.
Cheers could no longer bo suppressed
when ho asked that its nominees might rep
resent the "jiplrlt of modern democracy , pro
gressive democracy , democracy which is
arrayed 911 the side of the masses against
the classes and that strives to lift from tha
shoulders of the people the burdens borne for
the benefit of the lavored fow. " For half n
minute the aiidionco cheered enthusiastically
after tbo preacher baa re-tirod.

The session of the convention was indeed an
intellectual feast. There was very llltlo iu
the wuy of effective business to bo trans
acted nnd ample opportunity was afforded for
the regalement of the delegates by the f rea
How of oratory. M'ho first speech of the day
was by General Joun M. Palmer. The sen
ator's vpccch awakened all the latent po
litical fervor that hnd boon waiting for days
to bo itulckanod to enthusiasm by the stir
ring eloquence of some ponular leaner. Ho
hoped for democratic success because it
would prevent the passage of the force bill ,
If for no other reason.
"As sure as Benjamin Harrison Is elected
and the next congress Is republican , " bo
said , "wo will have a force bill , such as the
ingenuity of John Davenport or the devil
may suggest. "
Deafening cheers which followed this
sentence were evidence that tbo south at
least would oxcrt every possible effort to
prevent either of those characters mentioned
from over having opportunity to excrciso
their ingenuity on the line of Senator Palm
Hon' William L. Wilson of West Virginia
la admitted by all to have inada tbo speech
of his Ufa In oHsumlnc the gavel of tbo per
