ably and entertainingly the Conven
tion upon the living political issues of
the day, after which the Committee
on Resolutions submitted the follow
ing resolutions, which were adopted :
Resolved, 1. WTe the Democracy
of the County of Warren, in conven
tion assembled, renew our allegiance
to the time-honored, and re-assert
our abiding laith in, the living pnn
ciples of the Democratic party, the
party of the people.
2. We endorse the administration
of the Hon. Robt. Taylor as wise and
economical, and look with pride up
on the late administration of Ex
President G rover Cleveland as one of
the brightest pages in our history.
3. We look with pride upon the
growing sentiment, over the state
and nation, with regard to the better
protection of the agricultural and la
boring clases, who compose the great
body of the people, and therefore de
clare that it is the sense of this con
vention that the delegates, this day
appointed to attend the Gubernato
rial Convention to be held in the city
of Nashville, July ", lS'.io, be and
are hereby instructed to cast the vote
of Warren county for some good
farmer first, last, and all the time,
and that vk recognize in the person
of the lion. J. P. Buchanan a fit rep
resentative of the agricultural and
laboring classes, and we favor his
nomination as our choice for Govern
or, and we instruct for him so long as
his name is before the Convention.
4. Be it further resolved, That we
condemn the present Republican ad
ministration as weak, corrupt and
extravagant; lavishing and squan
dering the people's money, in wild
and corrupt measures, for the purpose
of preventing a reduction of taxation,
so that their policy, long since adopt
ed, of plundering the laborer and
farmer to enrich the favored few, may
not be changed ; and we arraign the
Republican party as the natural pa
rent of monopolies, rings, cliques,
frauds and combines, adhering to
principles foreign to free government
and shocking to civilization.
5. We condemn the unauthorized
abuse cf office and assumption of
power on the part of Mr. Reed, the
present Speaker of the National
House of Representatives, and de
clare that his course is unbecoming
his position. A parallel can only be
found among the lower animals. We
can hardly believe that among the
man be found who would have such
utter disregard of the rights of his as
sociates as has been shown by Speak
er Heed. We deplore his courso as
the second blackest spot upon the his
tory of our country ; unequaled by
nothing save the Republican steal of
the Presidency in 1870. .
(J. Resolved, That we instruct our
delegates to,, the Congressional Con
vention to cast the vote of the county
for II. C. Snodgrass so long as his
name is before the convention.
7. We deplore the present tariff
laws and declare that they are un
just and oppressive to the masses of
the people, who are robbed thereby
for the benefit of the few. We de
nounce the McKinley tariff bill as an
effort to further fasten upon the peo
ple the fetters of bondage ; and we re
gard it as the last link in the chain,
forged by the Republican party, to
destroy free institutions.
8. Resolved, That we favor a re
duction of taxes upon the masses,
and we recommend an income tax.
9. Resolved. That we arraign the
Republican party for demoralizing
silver and making it an article of
commerce, and we declare that it is
the sense o! this Convention that we
favor free coinage of silver.
W. T. Mi'kka y, Chr'm.
In addition to the foregoing, Col.
Jno. II. Savage submitted the follow
ing resolutions, and moved that the
report of the Committee be amended
thereby, which was unanimously
Resolved, 1. That no one Congress
has the constitutional right to post
pone the payment of a debt due from
the government longer than the term
for which the representatives com
posing that Congress are elected,
therefore the act of Congress by which
the payment of bonds is deferred, is
unconstitutional and void, and the
government should pay those bonds
without premium whenever there is
money in the treasury not otherwise
Resolved, 2. That the enormous
fortunes of the great millionaires of
the United States are the result of the
late civil war and of unjust class legis
lation, therefore it is due the taxpay
ers and men who live by toil that an
income tax sufficient to raise $250,
000,000 annually should be bvied on
all incomes above $3,0oo.
Resolved, 3. That the Internal
Revenue Law is corrupting, unjust,
cruel, and oppressive, and that its
methods and means of enforcement
are not in harmony with the princi
pies of Andrew Jackson Democracy,
anu theretore our representative in
congress is instructed to use every
possible effort to secure its repeal.
Upon motion the report as amend
ed was adopted.
