Adopted by the State Convention of the
People' Party at Wichita.
Resolred, That we, the representatives
of the People's party of Kansas, in con
tention assembled, ratify the Bt. Louis
preamble and platform of principles of
February 22d, 1892, and reaffirm every
sentence and line of the same as fully aa
though set out herein, and we only de
sire to add to it by epecializin g and
emphasizing some of the vital truths
Resolved, That we believe all leg
islation should be directed to the end of
securing to the laborer the full fruits of
his toll, and that the betterment of his
condition, morally and Intellectually,
should be alike purpose of law. We
therefore denounce all monopolies of the
products of labor, and all monopolies of
the soil and other natural resources of
the earth, like the minerals and coal,
and all elements of nature, like electric
ity, by the use of which the human race
through labor subsists.
Resolved, That we believe that gov
ernment only Is good where an Injury to
one la the concern of all; that public
needs should be supplied by public
agencies, and that the people should be
served equally and alike; and that among
other things the government should pro
vide public telephones and telegraph
lines, and a postal currency for con
venience In transmitting small sums of
money, and that as nearly as practicable
the mail of all the people be delivered
at their homes free.
Resolved. That we favor a liberal pen
slon law, and a law making good to the
old soldiers their loss by reason of pay
ment for services In depreciated cur
rencv. and that the government issue
United States notes, full legal tender, to
dav this difference.
Resolved, That we condemn the pres
ent board of railroad assessors for
their action In reducing the valuation of
the property of the railroads of the state,
whereby the burdens of taxation already
Imposed upon the people have been un
justly Increased; and we commend the
bold stand taken in congress by the sen
ators and representatives of the People's
D&xtv in their determined fight against
monopolistic corporations, and we here
by cledee to them our united support,
and express our unbounded confidence
In their wisdom and ability.
Resolved, That we approve the wise
said progressive legislation passed by the
lower house of the legislature at its last
session, and condemn the Republican
senators for non-concurrence In the
came. And especially do we commend the
action of such house in passing a bill pro
viding for the weekly payment of wages
by all corporate companies, and condemn
the senate for defeating the same; and
we demand that the next legislature
" enact such law. and for the benefit of our
xalnori we favor the adoption of J the
Missouri screen law as the law of this
We condemn the betrayal of the prom
ises of the Republican party In Its plat
form of 1890, by Its representatives In the
senate, in defeating by non-action the
Australian ballot bill and the bill provid
ing for the election of railroad commis
sioners by the people, both of which were
promised In its platform, and we com
mend the action of the People's party
representatives In the lower house for
redeeming their promises to us.
We oommend the People's party repre
sentees In the lower house for the pas
sage of the bill making Plnkerton's
detective system amenable to law; and
for the passage of the bill prohibiting
the blacklisting and discharging of cor
porate employes without an opportunity
to be heard In their defense, and we con
demn the Republican senate for failing
to pass such bills.
We also favor just and equitable pen
sion laws for the benefit of railroad em
ployes who are Injured In the company's
service, such pensions to be paid by the
companies, and to be a first Hen on their
property. We commend the People's
party representatives of the lower house
at the last session in passing the maxi
mum freight rate bill, and condemn the
Republican senate for allowing the same
to die on Its calendar, confident of the
fact that if it had become a law the in
terior cities of the state, which are justly
complaining of discrimination against
them by the railroads in favor of Missouri
river points, would find the evil removed,
and we pledge the people In city and
country to remedy the same by legisla
Resolved, That we favor the abolition
of the system of pasres In general use by
railroad cpmpanles as a species of favor
itism dangerous to the freedom of Amer
ican sovereignty. We favor the election
of United States senators by direct vote
of the people, and favor the submission
to a vote of the people of Kansas of an
amendment to the state constitution pro
viding for equal suffrage of all American
citizen without regard to sex.
Resolved, That, although the People's
party of Kansas Is largely composed of
farmers, we sympathize with all classes
of laborers, and will aid them In their
contest for a better system and more
equitable division of the profits of their
toil, and we invite their co-operation In
our warfare agalnt a common enemy.

E.I. Hoskshsl, President,
That is not true; It Is a mere after
thought While the people had their
currency, and before contraction set in,
they were out of debt It Is not natural
for people to go In debt If they have the
moneylo pay, nor did they do so before
contraction was Inaugurated by McCul-
loch. The people of this country were
then out of debt. When they failed to
realize upon their investments, when
they failed to obtain money, they sub
stituted credit for money. But that was
all done after contraction began, and I
propose to prove that from high authority.
Mr. Secretary McCulloch, in his an
nual report to congress In 1865, In which
he was urging upon congress the adop
tion of the contraction scheme, says:
The people are now comparatively free
This he gives as a reason why it Is
safe to enter upon contraction, that con
traction which has ruined and pauper
ized one-half of our people. Who can
portray the experience and suffering of
the American people since that fatal
hour? Hoping that the people may
arise, and take the government once more
into their own hands, and that our civili
zation may be made better through our
great suffering, I will not trespass fur
ther upon the time of the house. Re
