St. Louis, July 9.Following is the
text of the platform adopted by the
democratic national convention last
The democratic party of the United
States, in convention assembled, declares
its devotion to the essential principles of
the democratic faith which brings together
hi party communion.
Under them, local self-government and
national unity and prosperity were alike
established. They underlaid our inde
pendence, the structure of our free repub
lic and every democratic extension from
Louisiana to California and T^xas to Ore
go n, which preserved faithfully in all the
states the tie between taxation and repre
sentation. They yet inspire the masses of
our people, guarding jealously their rights
and liberties, and cherishing their frater
nit y, peace and orderly developments.
They remind us of our duties and respon
sibilities as citizens and impress upon us,
particularly at this time, the necessity of
reform and the rescue of the administra
tion or government from the headstrong,
arbitrary and spasmodic methods which
distract business by uncertainty and per
vade the public mind with dread, distrust
The application of these fundamental
principles to the living issues of the day

safety and progress of our nation. Free

the vital principle of republicsthese are
doctrines which democracy has established
approved by the nation, and they should
be constantly invoked and enforced.
Capital and Labor.
W favor the enactment and adminis
tration of laws giving labor and capital
impartially their just rights. Capital and
labor ought not to be enemies. Each is
necessary to the other, but the rights of
labor are certainly no less "vested," no
less "sacred" and no less "unalienable"
than the rights of capital.
Constitutional guarantees are violated
whenever any citizen is denied the right
to labor, acquire and enjoy property or
reside where interest or inclination may
determine. And denial thereof by indi
viduals, organizations or governments
should be summarily rebuked and pun
W deny the right of any executive to
disregard or suspend any constitutional
privilege or limitation. Obedience to the
laws and respect for their requirements
are alike the supreme duty of the citizen
and the official. The military should be

of the country. When any waterway like
the Mississippi ,river is of a sufficie nt im
portance to demand special aid of the
government, such aid should be extended
with definite plan of continuous work, un
til permanent Improvement is secured.
W oppose the republican policy of
starving home development in order to
feed the greed of conquest and the ap
petite for national "prestige" and display
Economy and Honesty.
Large reductions can easily be made
in the annual expenditures of the govern
ment without impairing the efficiency of
any branch of the public service, and

clear to be denied or withheld.

service, and to that end a thoro legisla

Contracts with Trusts.
W condemn the action of the repub
lican party in congress refusing to pro
hibit an executive department from en
tering into contracts with convicted trusts
or unlawful combinations in restraint -o
interstate trad e. W believe that one of
the best methods of procuring economy
and honesty in the public officials, from

to the lowest of them, returned as nearly
as may to Jeffersonian simplicity of liv
W favor the election of a president
Imbued with the principles of the con

against executive usurpation of legislative
and judicial functions, whether that usur

W favor the preservation, so far as

W oppose, as fervently as did George
Washington himself, an indefinite, irre
sponsible, discretionary and vague abso
lutism and a policy of coloni al exploita

volved or exercised. W believe, with
Thomas Jefferson and John Adariis, that
no government has a right to make one
set of laws for those "at home" and an

All men under the American flag are
entHled to the protection of the insti
tutions whose emblem the flag is if they
are inherently unfit for those institutions,
then they are inherently unfit to be mem
bei of the American body politic. Wher
ever there may exist a people incapable
of being governed under American laws,
in consonance with the American con
stitution of that people, that people ought
not to be a part of the American domain.
Set Filipinos Free.
W insist that ought to do for the
Filipinos what have done already for
the Cubans, and it is our duty to make
that promise now, and upon suitable guar
antees of protection to citizens of our own
and other countries resident there at the
time of our withdrawal, set the Filipino
people upon their feet, free and Inde
pendent to work out their own destiny.
The endeavor of the secretary of war,
by pledging the government's indorsement
for "promoters" in the Philippine islands
to make the United States a partner in
speculative legislation of the archipelago,
which was only temporarily held up by
the opposition of the democratic senators,
in the last session, will, if successful, lead
to entanglements from which it will be
difficult to escape.
Protection a Robbery.
The democratio party has been, and
will continue to be, the consistent oppo
nent of that class of tariff legislation by
which certain interests have been per
mitted, thru congressional favor, to draw
a heavy tribute from the 'American peo
ple. This monstrous perversion of those
equal opportunities, which our politic al
institutions were established to secure
has caused what may once have been
infant industries to "become the greatest
combinations of capital that the world has
ever known. These special favorites of
the government have, thru trust methods,
been converted into monopolies, thus
bringing to an end domestic competition,
which was the only alleged check upon
the extravagant profits made possible
the protective system. These Industrial
combinations, by the financial assistance
they can give, now control the polloy of
the republican party.
W denounce protection a a robbery
of the many to enrich the few, and
favor a tariff limited to the needs of the
government, economically administered
and so levied a not to discriminate
against any industry, class or section, to
the end that the burdens of taxation shall
be distributed a equally as possible.
W favor a revision and a gradual re
duction of the tariff by the friends, of the
masses and for the common weal, a|d
not by the friends of It abuses, its ex
tortions and its discriminations, keeping
in view the ultimate ends of "equality of
burdens and equality of opportunities'* and
the constitutional purpose of raising a rev
enue by taxation, to-wlt, the support of
the federal government in all its integrity
and virility, but in simplicity.
Trusts and Combinations.
W recognize that the gigantic trusts
and combinations designed to enable cap
ital to secure more than It just share
of the joint products of capital'. and. la

promoted under republican rule, are a
menace to benefici al competition and an

For some reason the fish were not in

Stomach i tt
RESTORES THE APPETITE
Food eaten without appetite always causes
distress. It lies in the stomach undigested and
soon ferments, causing Severe Pains, Heartburn,
Bloating and Belching. A dose of Ho&tetter's
Stomach Bitters before meals will strengthen
the stomach and stimulate the flow of gastric
juices, which are so essential to perfect diges-
tion. Then these ailments will quickly vanish
and in their place you will find a heakhy
desire for food, which will be perfectly digest-
ed, resulting in the building up of firm, solid
flesh. It also cures
INDIGESTION, DYSPEPSIA, CONSTIPATION, INSOMNIA
AND MALARIA, FEVER AND AGUE.
Try a Bottle and see for yourself. Here's voluntary praise:
Washington, D. C.
Your Bitters Is a most extraordinary
remedy for restoring the appetite. 1 place
S it above any other medicine on the market
and cheerfully endorse it."
