State Convention of the People's Party
was held in this city todav. Thiitv
counties were represented. E. A.
Eagery, of Kaclne, was elected chair
man, and Theo. Fritz, of Milwaukee,
secretary. The day was taken up In
appcinting and listening to reports of
committees. The followingregolutions
were adopted :
The preamble recites Lincoln's capi
tal is superior to labor, and could not
bave existed without it. "But capital
in the f urn of corporations has thrown
tbe devil fish fang' around labor. Tbe
farmer, workingnian, merchant, and
even the manufacturer are being
robbed and impoveiished by tbe so
called vested right obtained through
Irandulent legislation. Corporations,
wilh no bodies to starve or souls to
save, have secured politicians and nse
them as tools, not even hesititing at
bloodshed, as instanced in cases
throngbout tbe country. When labor
demands their right the corrupt tools
of corrupt corporations aliempt to
mislead by charging ttat lubor pro
poes to nse violence."
The platform declares that the nse
of violence in any form to settle their
deputes is utterly unjustifiable in a
civil'zid community, whether alien
a'ed by fanatical anarchists or prac
ticed by corrupt politicians, and tbat
none bat those developed out of bar
barism would resort to its use.
It favors government control cf
money, land, means of communica
tion, public improvements, labor bu
reaus conducted in the internals of
the whole people, simplification of the
laws to but one on each sulnect. and
arbitration in place of strikes. It de
mands prohibition of child labor, con
tract convict labo', and safety means
for employes in in nee, f (tories, etc.;
the abolition of tbe one man power in
the government and the election of all
officials by the vote of il o people. I',
asks the amendment ol th pitent laws
so as to give itunr pari 1 1 the bone n
of the labor siving inventions and
prevent monopoly. It asks the for
feiture of all land grants, and prohibi
tion of lien ownerships of lands, gov
ernment lonn oi money, and ruid en
forcement of (ha laws ajniint tho im
portation of foreign labor. Denounces
the practices of the old parties in the
conducting of campaigos on iestiim
which should have baen buried when
settled a score of yearaago, and invites
the co-op :ration of all honest people
in support oi trie new l'oopies 1'arly.
