tiqu. After -l the hear and turmoil, the
day is here, and all roads lead to the
onvention, where, at 12 o'clock, Chair
Ein' Jones calls the convention to order.
Throughout the night there has been
no sleep, for the sky has been lurid and
the sound deafening from rockets and
cannon and every conceivable device of
noisy demonstration. With the day
light the shock had increased into one
long continued roar, in which the pa.
triotism of the day and the enthusiasm
of the party are blended.
Early in the day the crowds began to
turn toward Coinvention hall and all the
approaches to the va~st edifice were filled
with an eager and excited throng, surg
ing toward the many entrances seeking
to gain early admission to the building.
Wfth them came bands, marching clubs
and drum corps, and to the confusion of
their crash and hurrah was added the
constant crack, boom, sizz of bombs and
crackers, as the convention enthusiasts
and the small boy vied with each other
in celebraiiing the day.
The convention hall auditorium is
shaped like a great bowl, with the pre-~
siding officer in the center, while the
seats rise tier on tier on every side back
to the remotest corner of the building.
In the holjow of this bowl the real busi
ness is to be done, for here the delegates
and alternates are seated and the plat
form is located.
The area for delegates is paved with
stones, so there will be no sound of
shuffled feet. The seats are arranged in
a great oval, the side toward the plat
form. The folding chairs for the dele
gates and alternates make a little lake
of yellow in this bowl marked here and
tere by the tall standards indicating
the ygious state delegations.
Raised about 2 feet above this stone,
the platform juts out into the lake of
yellow like some cape in the sea. Ti
platform is flanked on either side by the
rows of press seats, stretching back 200
feet in either direction. The platform

ief presents evidence of elegance, even
rgeousness, and is far more elaborate
tnthe counterpart at Philadelphia.
Beneath the chairman's feet stretches a
rich Turkish rug of crimson hue, while
a great leathern seat is ready to accom
modate the man who holds the gavel.
Instead of a table before him the gavel
is to fall on a strange wooden pedestal,
similar to those used in supporting a
catafalque. The secretary of the con
vention has another raised platform
with a huge chair of leathern elegance,
while the lesser officials, clerks and
stenographers have the usual spread of
pine before them.

The bands played familiar tunes in
the galleries and brought forth the old
vells from the crowd. As usual "Dixie"
and "Hot Time" were played repeatedly
and cheered enthusiastically.

While the galleries were enthusing
over Mr. Towvne there was an excited
little group about the chair of ex-Sena

"You must take the nomination and

- You must take it," said Croker, lean
ing over him while Norman E. Mack
and Frank Campbell held Hill, one on
each side, and urged him to accept.

shaking his finger under Mr. Hill's nose,
"You can't refuse, you can't. The
party must have you to save the east."
"I don't want it. Xou can name

Hill, and then turning to Murphy and

go-such a day, taken as a whole, as no
other convention has ever known.
From the beginning of the morning
session until the close a; night, there
was never a dull moment. Nowhere
else in the world and at ao time has
there been such a continuous, spontane
ous outburst of enthusiasm-honest en
thusiasm from the heart. There was
nothing of the manufactured article in
The presentation of Bryan's name and
the announcement of his nomination
were greeted by outbursts of the same
character as when Chairman Richardson
first mentioned his name to the conven
tion. Perfect pandemoniums of happi
ness and joy were these.
Nor was the personal tribute paid Hill
of New York, unexpected. The efforts
of the convention to get Hill to the front
before this indicated what the delegates
would do if they were given the chance.
But there were two outbursts of par
ticular significance, two that were not
among the expected. One of these was
over Webster Davis, recently a favored
son in the McKinley household, who
made a brilliant and fervid speech re
nouncing allegiance to McKinley and
McKinleyism, and declaring for Bryan.
The other unexpected demonstration
was that over the platform. Nobody ex
pected much in the demonstration line
over the platform, but the unexpected
happened. To Senator Tillman fell the
lot of reading the platform, and splen
didly did he perform the task. Close
attention was paid to every sentence.
There was liberal applause up to the
paragraph defining the party's position
against Republican imperialism. As the
eading of that, with its climax declar
ng this to be the paramount issue of the
ampaign, was completed, there -fol
owed an outburst which can only be de
cribed as marvelous. No other word
fits the case. That vast audience broke
nto a paroxysm of enthusiasm mani
ested in every conceivable way. In an
nstant 20,000 flags flashed in the air and
for half an hour there was a wonderful
display of patriotic fervor over this mag
nificent utterance of Democratic policy.
Oldham of Nebraska, who presented
r. Bryan's name, has rather a tragic
anner, but former Senator Hill was the
ramatic figure among those who made
seconding speeches, but his was by no
eans the only good speech.

ance of the Monroe Doctrine-Op
poses Militarism-Silver Plank.
KANSAS CITY, July 6.-Following is a
text of the platform as agreed upon by
the committee on resolutions and
adopted by the convention:
"We, the representatives of the Dem
ocratic party of the United States, as
sembled in convention on the anniver
sary of the declation of independence,
do reaffirm our faith in that immortal
proclamation of the inalienable rights of
man and.our allegiance to the constitu
tion framed in harmony therewith by
the fathers of the republic. We hold
with the United States supreme court
that the declaration of independence is
the spirit of our government, of which
the constitution is the form and letter.
We declare again that all governments
instituted among men derive their just
powers from the consent of the gov
erned; that any government not based
upon the consent of the governed is a
tyranny; and that to impose upon any
people a government of force is to sub
stitute the methods of imperialism for
those of a republic. We hold that the
constitution follows the flag and de
nounce the doctrine that an executive or
congress deriving their existence and
their powers from the constitution can
exercise lawful authority beyond it, or
in violation of it. We assert that no na
tion can long endure half republic and
half empire, and we warn the American
people that imperialism abroad will lead
quickly and inevitably to despotism at
home. Believing in these principles, we
denounce the Porto Rico law, enacted
by a Republican congress against the
protest and opposition of the Democratic
minority as a bold and open violation of
the nation's organic law and a flagrant
breach of good faith. It imposes upon
the people of Porto Rico a government
without their consent and taxation with
out representation. It dishonors the
[Who Read the Platform.]
American people by repudiating a
solemn pledge made in their behalf by
the oommanding general of our army,
which the Porto Ricans welcomed, to a
peofland unresisted occupation of
ihfIsland. They have doomed to pov
erty and distress a people whose help
lessness appeals with peculiar force t
our justice and magnanimity. In this,
the first act of its imperialistic program,
the Republican party seeks to comimit
the United States to a colonial poiy,
inconsistent with re blicaninstiunsfl
and condemned by te supreme court in
"We demand the prompt and honest
ilment of our pledges to the Cuban
pepeand the world that the United
States has no disposition nor inteution
to exercise sovereignty, jurisdiction or
control over the island of Cuba, except
for its pacification. The war ended
nearly two years ago, profound peace
reigns over all the island, and still the
aministration keeps the government of
the island from its people, while Repub
lican captbgofiil e its reve
nues and exploit the colonia theory to
the disgrace of the American people.
As to the Philippines.
"We condemn and denounce the Phil
ippines policy of the present aminis
tration. It has involved the epblc
unnecessarily In war, sacrificed the lives
of mayof our noblest sons and placed
the United States, previously kuown
anda laddrugout the world as
teapaun of freedom, in the false
and un-American position of crushing,
with military force, the efforts of our
former allies to achieve liberty and self
government. The Filipinos cannot be
citizens without endangering our civi
zation; they cannot be subjects ~out
imperiling our form of government, and
as we are not willing to surrender our
civilization or controvert the republic
into an empire, we favor an immediate
declaration of the nation's purpose to
give the Filipinos, first, a stable form of
government; second, independence, and,
third, protection from outside interfer-'
enc, such as has been given for nearly
a century to the republics of Central and
South America. The greedy commer
cialism which defeated the Philippines
policy of the Republican aministration
attempts to justify it with the plea that
it will pa, but even this sordid and un
worthy plea fails when brought to the
test of fact. The war of criminal ag
gressioni against the Filipinos, entailing
an annual expenditure of many millions,
has already cost more than any possible
prfit that could accrue from the entire
Flpino trade for years to come. Furth
ermore, when trade is extended at the
expense of liberty the price is always too
i.Views On Expansion.
"We are not opposed to territorial ex
pansion when It takes in desirable terri
tory which can be erected into states in
the Union and whose people are willing
and fit to become American citizens. We
favor trade expansion by every peaceful
and legitimate means, but we are unal

outside the constitution and whose peo

fluence among the nations, but believe
that influence should b-3 extended, not
by force and violence, but through the
persuasive power of a high and honora
ble example. The importance of other
questions now pending before the Ameri
can people is in no wise diminished and
the Demneratic party takes no backward
step from its position on them, but the
burning issue of imperialism, growing
out of the Spanish war, involves the
very existence of the republic ind the
destruction of our free institutions. We
regard it as the paraunout issue of the
The Monroe lDoetrine.
"The declaration in the Republican
platform adopted at the Philadelphia
convention held in June, 1900, that the
Republican party 'steadfastly adhered
to the policy announced in the Monroe
doctrine, is manifestly insincere and de
ceptive. This profession is contradicted
OONGnEssMAN J. D. RICHARDSON.
by the avowed policy of that party in
opposition to the spirit of the Monroe
doctrine to acquire and hold sovereignty
over large areas of territory and large
numbers of people in the eastern hem
isphere. We insist on the strict main
tenance of the Monroe doctrine and in
all its integrity, both in letter and in
spirit, as necessary to prevent the exten
sion of European authority on this con
tinent and essential to our supremacy in
American affairs. At the same time we
declare that no American prnciple shall
ever be held by force in unwilling sub
jection to European authority.
Opposed to 3Militarism.
"We oppose militarism. It means
conquest abroad and intimidation and
oppression at home. It means the
strong army, which has ever been fatal
to free institutions. It is what millions.
of our citizens have fled from in Europe.
It will impose upon our peace-loving
people a large standing army, an un
necessary burden of taxation and a con
stant menace to their liberties. A small
standing army and a well disciplined
state militia are amply sufficient in time
of peace. This republic has no place for
a vast military service and conscription.
When the nation is in danger the volun
teer soldier is his country's best defender.
The National guard of the United States
should ever be cherished in the triotic
hearts of a free people. Such ogni'a
tions are ever an element of strength
and safety. For the first time in our
history and co-evil with the Philippines
conquest, has there been a wholesale de
parture from our time-honored and ap
Droved system of volunteer orgamza
tion. We denounce it as un-American,
un-Democratic and unrepublican and as
a subvertion of the ancient and fixed
principles of a free people.
Dingley Tariff Law Condemned.
"Private monopolies are indefensible
and intolerable. They destroy competi
tion, control the price of all materials
and of the finished product, thus robbing
both producer and consumer. They les
sen the employment of labor and arbi
trarily fix the terms and conditions
thereof and deprive individual energy
and sall1 capital of their opportunity
"They are the most efficient means
yet devised for appropriating the fruits
of industry to the benefit of the few at
the expense of the many, and unless
their insatiate greed is checked all
wealth will be aggregated in a few
hands and the republic destroyed. The
dishonest paltering with the trust evil
by the Renublican party in state and
national platforms is conclusive proof of
the truth of the charge that trusts are
the legitimate product of Republiean
policies; that they are fostered by Re
publican laws and that they are pro
tected by the Republican administration
in return for campaign subscriptions and
"We pledge the Democratic party to
an unceasing warfare, in nation, _state
and city, against private monopolies in
any form. Existing laws against trusts
must be enacted providing for publicity
as to the affairs of corporations engaged
in interstate commerce and requiring all
corporations to show. before doing busi

state commerce shall be exercised by the
enactment of comprehensive laws upon

control of all the branches of the na
tional government, to enact any legisla
tion designed to prevent or even curtail
the absorbing power of trusts and ille

Election of United States Senators.
"We favor an amendment to the fed
eral constitution providing for the elec
tion of United States senators by direct
vote of the-people, and we favor direct
legislation wherever practicable.
"We are .opposed to government by
injunction. We den6unce the blacklist
and favor arbiration as- a meansof set

Favors a Departmet of Labor.
"In the interest of American labor
and the uplifting of the workingman-as
the cornerstone of the prosperity of our
country, we recommend that congress
create a department of labor, in charge
of a secretary-with a-seat-in the cabinet,
believing -that elevation of American ls
borers will bring with it increased pro
duction and increased prosperity to our
country at home and to our commerce
"We are proud of the courage and
fidelity of -the American soldiers and
sailors in all our wars; we favor liberal
pensions to them and their dependents,
and we reiterate the position taken in
the Chicago - platform in 1896, that the
fact of elistment-and service shall be
deemed conclusive evidence against dis
ease and disability before enlistment.
"We favor the immediate construe
tion, ownership and control of the Nica
ragua canal by-the United States, and
we denounce the insincerity of the plank
in the national Republican platform fOr
an isthmian canal, in the face of the
failure of the Republican majority to
pass the bill pending in congress. We
condemn the Hay-Pauncefote treaty as
a surrender of American rights and in
terests not to be tolerated by the Ameri
"We denounce the failure of the.Re
publican party to carry out its pledges,
to grant~ statehoods to the territories of
Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma,
and we promise the people of those ter
ritories immediate statehood and home
rule during their condition as territories
and we favor home rule and territorial
form of government for Alaska and
Porto Rico. We favor an intelligent
system of improving the arid lands of
the west, restoring the waters of irriga
tion and the holdmng of such lands for
"We favor the continuance and strict
enforcement of the Chinese exclusion
law and its application to the same
classes of all Asiatic races.
Sympathy For the Boers.
"Jefferson said: 'Peace, commerce and
honest friendship with nations, entang
ling alliances with no one.'
"We approve this wholesome doctrine
and earnestly protest against the Repub
lican departure which has involved us in
so-called politics, including the diplom
acy of Europe and the intrigue and laud
grabbing of Asia and we especially con
demn the ill-concealed Republican alli
ance with England, which must mean
discrimination against other friendly
nations ynd which has already, stifled
the nation's voice, while liberty is being
strangled in Africa.
"Believing in the principles of self
government and rejecting as did our
forefathers, the claim of monarchy, we
view with indignation the purpose of
England to overwhelm with force the
South African republic. Speaking, as
we do, for the entire American nation,
except its Republican officeholders and
for all free men everywhere, we extend
our sympathies to the heroic burghersmn
their unequal struggle to maintain their
liberty and independence.
"We denounce the lavish appropria
tions of recent Republican congresses,
which have kept taxes high and which
threaten the perpetuation of oppressive
war levies- We oppose the accumula
tion of a surplus to be squandered in
such barefaced frauds upon the tax
payers as the shipping subsidy bill,
which, under the false pretence of pros
perity, American shipbuilding would
put unearned millions into the pockets
of favorite contributors to the Republi
can campaign fund. We favor the re
duction and speedy repeal of the war
taxes and a return to the time-honored
Democratic policy of strict economy in
"Believing that our most cherished
institutions are in great peril, that the
very existence of our constitutional re
blic is at stake and the decision to be
rendered will determine whether or not
our children are to enjoy those blessed
privileges of free governmient which
havc made the United States great,
prseos and honored, we earnestly
ask sfor the foregoing declaration of
principles, the hearty support of the lib
ertlovinig people, regardless of party
