3f thn states In nil their just rights; to econ-.
jmy In tho public oxpendttures; to tho main-'
:cnancc of'the public faith and sound money;
ind It Is opposod to paternalism and all class
The declarations of the Chicago convention
attack individual freedom, tho right of pri
vate contract, the independence ot the judici
ary, and the authority of the president to
enforce federal lows They advocate it reck
less attempt to Increase the price of silver t3
legislation to the debasement of our mon
etary standaro, and threaten unlimited Issues
of paper, monoy by' tho government. Thoy
abandon for republican allies tho democratic
cause of tariff reform to court tho favor of .the
protectionist to their fiscal heresy.
In view ot these and other gravo departures
from democratic principles, wo can not sup
port the candidates of that convention, nor be
bound by Its action. The democratic pirty
has survived many dcfoits. but could not sur
vivo a victory won In behalf ot tho doctflne
and policy proclaimed In Its namo at Chlcaso.
The conditions, howover, which mako pos
sible such utterances from national conven
tion are the direct result of Qasz legislation
bv the republican party. It still proclaims, as
it has for years, tho power and duty ot gov
ernment to ralso and maintain prices by law
and It proposes no remedy for existing evils,
except oppressive and unjust taxation
Tto national democracy hero reconvened
therefore renews Its declaration ot faith in
democratic principles, especially as applica
ble to tho conditions ot tho times.
Taxation, tariff. excise or direct, Is right
fully imposed only for public purposes, and
not for private palp. Its r.mount Is justly
measured by jubllc oxpindlturos, which
jhould Di HmltoJ by scrupulous economy.
Tho sum derived by tho treasury from tarlfl
and excise levies U affected by tho stato ot
trado and volume of consumption. Ilio amount
required 1)7 tho treasury Is determined by the
appropriations made by congress. Tho demand
ot the republican party foranlncrcaso In tarlfl
taxation has Its pretext In the deficiency ol
revenue, which has Its cmses In the stagna
tion ot trade and retlucos consumption, due
entirely to tho loss of contldcnce that has fol
lowed the populUt threat of free coinage and
depreciation ot our money or.d the republican
practice of extravagant appropriations be
yond ths neods ot good government We
arraign and condemn the popullstlc con
ventions of Chicago and bt Louis for
their co-operation Kith the republican
party In creating these conditions which are
pleaded in Justification of a heavy increase of
tho burdens ot tho people by a further resort
to protection. Wo therefore donounco pro
tection and Its nllr, free coinage ot silver, as
schemes for tho personal profit of a fow at the
expense of the masses, and oppose tho twe

We demand that henceforth modern and lib
eral policies towards American shipping shall
talto the place ot our imitation of tho re
stricted statutos ot tto eighteenth century,
which wero long ago abandoned by every
maritime power but tbo United States, nnd
which, to the nation' humiliation, haio driven
American capital and enterprise to the use cl

btars and stripes, an almost unknown emblem

cultural and manufactured products.
The experience of mankind has shown tb.it
by reason of their natural qualities, gold Is
the necessary money of the large affairs ot
commerce and builness. while silver is con
veniently adapted to minor transactions, and
the most beneficial use ot both together can
be ensured only by tho adoption of the former
'as a standard ot monetary measure, and the
maintenance of silver at a parity with gold by
Its limited coinage under suitable safeguards
of law. Tbns the largest possfblo enjoyment
ot both motals is gained with a valuo uni
versally accepted throughout the world, which
constitutes the only practical bimetallic cur
rency, assuring tho most stable standard and
especially the best and safest money for all
who earn their llvlthood by labor or the pro
duce ot ouscanary.
They can not suffer when paid in the best
money Known to man, but aro the most
defenseless victims of a debased and fluctu
ating currency which offers continual profits
to the money changers at their cost.

the parity therewith of every dollar Issued by
the government and are firmly opposed to the
freo and unlimited colna;c ot silver, nnd tc
the compulsory purchaso of silver bullion.
But we denounco also tho further m lntenanco
of.the present costly p..tch-work sybtem o:

of injury and porll
We assert tho necessity of such Intelligent
currency reform as will confine tho govern

separated from the banking business and af

safe and elastic bank currency under govern
mental supervision, measured In volume by
tho needs of business.
