Thiki have bean several propositions
presented to congress during the last two

distasteful to senators and professional
politicians, who can better manipulate a
leglalettire than the paople of a state, and
have bean' left to slumber in committee

TIIK NEW l'AUTy
A NU1I TO
The following resolutions woro adopted
by tho largo anti-monoply state ronvon
tlon that met at Dos Molnoa, Iowa, on
Wednesday laat :
In order to deflnu our uoiitlon wo. In
convention aaaomblcd, submit to the can-
dia public, as tlio basis of our political
action, tho followlnii roHolution :
1. That tho primary object of freo ro-
puoucan governmoni is a propor protec
tion of persons and property, and that few
and simple laws, faithfully admlniitored,
win doss securo ima eno.
2. That wo aro In favor.of nolltlcal rn.
form, and to that end we demand bunestv.
economy and purity in official Ufa.
U. That wo repudiate the doctrino that
to tno victors belong mo spoils, but. In
stead of that, wo aro In favor of a true
system or civil servlco reform, making
uonosty and capacity tbo only valid
claims for public employment.
. Yiiai, in a protecttvo taritl, wo roc
oenizo a monopoly, and aro therefore op
posed to it, and wo demand fron'iron, stoel,
ealt and lumbor and wool fabrics, and
that a tariff on importations is Justillablo
for 'revenue purposes only.
B. That all corporations nro subtect to
legislative control ; that those croated by
congress should be restricted and con
trolled by congress, and that those undor
state laws snouia oo subject to tno oontroi
of the state croatlng thorn ; that whilo wo
recoenice ine vaiuo or railroads, and will,
in all proper wavs oncoursee tbolr con
struction; yet, whilo enjoying valuable
rtenoblse, tbey ebould bear their full bur
den of taxation, and rocelvo on tbo capl-
winm no moro mnn a justanu law-
iui iiuoreiv, anu snouia cnargo only a. just
and equitable rato for transportation and
C. That wo favor such modifications of
our banking system as will extend its
beneOts to the whole people, and thus de
stroy a monopoly now enjoyed by a favor
7. That we are opposod to all grantt
or lands to railroads or other corporations
and believe that what la lort or the public
domain shall be bold sacred for actual sot
tlera. 0. That tbe pretended repeal of the
baek salary law after the appropriation of
tbe grab, both beforo nnd aftor tbe service
performed by many members of Uongroia
and the failuro to apply to the pro.ldent,
Is a gross fraud upon tha public, and
nothing short or an unqualified repeal will
satisfy the Just demand of tbo pooplo.
9, ' That we deny the alleged noenssllr
of a state printer and bindor of a party
organ, supported by publlo patronage, and
demand that all publlo work, both state
and county, be let by contract to tbo low-
est responsible uaaer.
10., That the election of oyer sixty
members or the General' Assembly, with
an incomplete organixtuVn,- Is a complete
demonstration of tho Justice of our causo
and a promise of Its oerly triumph In the
aiate and nation. y
