THE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
ADOPTED AT CINCINNATI, JCNE 24TII, 18S0.
' The Democracy of the United States, in
convention assembled, declare
.' rirst We pledge ourselves anew to tlio
constitutional doctrines and traditions of
the Democratic party as illustrated by the
. teachings and exampios of a long line of
Democratic statesmen and patriots, and cm-
. . ' bodied in the platform of the last national
convention of the party.
Second Opposition to centralization, to
that dangerous spirit of encroachment
. which tends to consolidate in one and thus
; ! to create, whatever the form of government,
,V f real despotism; no sumptuary laws; sep
aration of church and stato for the good of
r each; common schools fostered and pro-..v-'
; -Third Home rule, honest money, con
f ' airting of gold and silver and paper,
convertible into gold on demand; the strict
."' ajaintainance of tho public taith, stato and
aatfoaal. and a tariff for revenue only.
' ' Fourth Ttie subordination of tho mill-
tary to tho civil power and a genuine
- . - thorough icform is the civil service.
Fifth No discrimination in furor of
transportation lines, corporations or monop
olies.. Sixth Tho amendment of tho Burliu
gamo treaty that there mny bo no more
Chineso immigration, except for travel and
education and foreign commerce, and there
in carefully guarded.
Seventh Public money and public
credit for public purposes solely and and
public land for actual settlers.
Eighth Tho Democratic party is tho
friend of labor and laboring men, and
pledges itself to protect him alike against
the cormorants and tho commune.
Ninth Free ships and a living chance
for American commerce upon tho seas and
upon the land.
Tenth The right to a free ballot is the
preservative of all rights, and must and
shall be maintained in every part of the
United States. Tho existing administra
tion is the representative of a conspiracy
only, and its claim of the right to surround
the ballot boxes with troops and deputy
marshals to intimidate and obstruct the
elections, and the unprecedented use of the
veto to maintain its corrupt and despotic
power insults the people and im
perils their institutions. e exe
crate tho course of this adminstration
in making places in tho civil service a
reward for political crime, and demand a
reform by statute which shall make it
forever impossible for a defeated candi
date to' bribe his way to the seat of a
usurper by billeting villains upon the
Eleventh 1 he great iraua oi is.o, uy
which, upon a false count of the electoral
votes of two states, the candidate de
feated at the polls vas declare! to be
president, and for the first time in Amer
ican history tue will oi tne people was
set aside under a threat of military vio
lence, struct a deadly blow at onr sys
tem of representative government. The
Democratic party, to preserve the coun
try from the horrors of a civil war sub
mitted for the time in the firm and pat
riotic belief that the people would pun
ish this crime in 1880. This duty precedes
and dwarfs every other. It inspires a more
sacred duty upon the people of the Union
than was ever addressed to the consciences
of a nation of freemen.
Thirteenth The resolution of Samuel J.
Tilden not ntrain to be a candidate for the
exalted place to which he was elected by a
majority of his countrymen, and from
which he was excluded by the leaders of
the Republican party, is received by the
Democracy of the United States with deep
sensibility, and they declared their confi
dence in his wisdom, patriotism
and integrity unshaken by the as
saults of the common enemy, and they
further assure hira that he is fol
lowed into the retirement he has chosen
for himself by the sympathy and respect of
his fellow citizens, who regard him as one,
who, by elevating the standard of public
morality, and adorning and purifying the
public service, merits the lasting gratitude
of his party.
Fourteenth W e congratulate the coun
try upon the honestly and thrift of a Dem
ocratic congress which had reduced the
public expenditure 140,000,000 a year:
upon the continuation of prosperity &t
home and the national honor abroad ; and
above all, upon the promise ot such a
chauge in the administration of the govern
ment as shall insure as genuine and lasting
reform in every dcpurUuont of the public

HANCOCK AND MRS. SURRATT.
Under the head-lines "Gen. Hancock
the brave priest who shrived Mrs. Surratt
bears witness of his just and gentle bear
ing a wicked invention blown to the
winds by a dozen honest words," a special
dispatch appeared in The World of Nov.
14, 1879, as lollows:
"Washington, Nov. 13. The mention
of Gen. Hancock's name in connection
with the presidential nomination has led,
as his friends supposed it would lead, to
spiteful outcroppings over the hanging of
Mrs. Surratt, an affair which his official po
sition just after the war Compelled him to
direct. A few days ago, in the Indianap
olis Journal, an interview was printed
about Gen. Hancock, of which the follow
ing is a part:
" 'The Democrats can t nominate Gen.
Hancock,' said a Catholic priest to me the
other day, in response to expressions of
"Why not?' I aked.
Because,' he said with much feeling,
'he hanged Mrs. Surratt without cause, and
persecuted her for her religion.'
" 'I don't see how ho hanged Ler,1 said I,
more than Gen. Holt, who was judge ad
vocate, or Stanton, wus secretary of war, or'
Andy Johnson, who was president.'
' 'Hancock," exclaimed the priest, 'had
her immediate custody, and he absolutely
refused to let her bco her clergyman, or any
clergymen of her church, after she was sen
tenced. He did all ho could to send the
woman to ; but no doubt her earnest
requeBt for clergy was passed her credit in
the books beyond the sky.'
" 'I never thought of that,' I said.
" 'Well, Catholics have,' Haid the priest
'and if Hancock should arise and have the
impudence to ask for Catholic votes they
would bury him under their indignation.'
"'Tho above extract appeared in the
Post, of this city, this morning. Tho re
porter of the World called upon Rev.
Father Walter, of St. Patrick's church,
with this interview. Ho wits Mrs. Surratt
adviser, and ho it was whom Gen. Hancock
was credited with having insulted. Father
Walter is fa tall, square-shouldered nmn,
with enough fire in his fane and vigor in
his movements to make one almost wish
that he and Gen. Hancock could put on the
gloves together, they are so nearly matched.
"'I am glad vou canto,' he said, 'for this
isn't thn first of" thrsn flings at Gen. Han
cock. I have blamed myself olten for not
declaring the truth in the matter, for I am
the only one that should tell it, so fur as it
concerns mysnlf. Vet, being a priest, I
have felt bound to hold my peace. Besides,
no tangible harm has resulted from silence.
For some weeks back, thoush, I have seen
that circumstances might arise which
should cnange my determination; this at
tack seems to me to call for the kind of
response thut will make such objections to
Uen. liancocK impossible in tho future
That is what I said to-day to Bishop Kcanc
of Richmond, when I informed him I had
auout aecidca to uracil an sucn stones as
false over ray own signature.'
"'Would you object to doing it now?
the reporter asked.
" 'Not at all,' Father Walter replied, and
seating himself at a table be wrote this de
" 'Truth and justice compel me to deny
the statement witn reference to Gen. llan
cock's participation in the execution of
Mrs. Surratt,, which appeared in the Wash
ington Post this morning. I attended Mrs
burratt on tnat occasion, and met with no
interference en the part of Gen. Hancock
Gen. Hancock had great sympathy for this
unfortunate lady, and waited until the last
moment, hoping for a reprieve. I consider
it an act of justice to Gen. Hancock that
this statement should be made.
Taster of St. Patrick's Church."
"'There. That is the first statement
have made for the public in all these years.'
rather alter said, a trifle sadly, '1 hope
it may be the means of enough good to
compensate for all the harm that these sto
ries have done.'
"An assertion made to-day by an ex-army
officer was abundantly corroborated in the
war department, that so strong was General
Hancock s hope for a reprieve tor Mrs. cur
ratt that on the day of the execution he
stationed relays of cavalry along the streets
from the white house to the arsenal, that no
delay iniirht ensue in communicating the
fact. In the arsenal are photographs of
the scaffold at'the time of the execution.
They show Father Walter at Mrs. Surratt's
This was followed by another dispatch,
published November 25, as follows:
"Washington, Nov. 24. When General
Hancock was here last week he met the
Rev. Father Walter at the bouse of a
mutual friend. General Hancock's car
nage was at the door, and after the visit
Father Walter entered the carriage at Gen
eral Hadcock's request and they drove off
together. Their conversation lasted for
nearly an hour. From an army officer who
knew what was said, it seemed that
General Hancock began the conversation
by thanking Father Walter for the state
ment and card published in the World
about the defamatory stories in connection
with the hanging of Mrs. Surratt. 'That
denial was necessary,' Gen. Hancock
said, 'to destroy a vicious falsehood, and it
was sufficient to do it ' Father Walter re
plied that he had done merely his duty,
and that wnile be was by no means inclined
to arouse bad feeling in the matter, he
thought that while the press were disposing
of it they might as well place the blame
for the execution where it belongs, upon
Andrew Johnson. 'When the time for the
execution had been fixed,' he said, 'I went
to President Johnson to urge a postpone
ment for a few days. Mr. Johnson perem
torily refused to postpone the execu
tion, and acted as though he suspected
I would be led to hope that one
favor might be followed by others,
and that eventually a reprieve might justly
be demanded. I tned to disabuse hiLi of
such an impression by declaring that if he
would grant us but ten days no other favor
would be asked of hira. Shortly before the
execution I called at the white . house a
Eecond time. My card was returned with a
message that Mr. Johnson would not see
me. I asked him then for a hearing of ten
minutes, but he refused; then for two min
utes, and he still refused. There wb no
reason in his refusal, and I hope he felt at
the time of his impeachment trial that the
refusal of the tnato to grant him ten days
in which to prepare a defense w-as in "a
"A letter was received by an army officer
here from one of Gen. Hancock's most inti
mate associates, a few days after the publi
cation in the World of Father Walter's
statement, which said that Gen. Hancock
was highly gratified at the course of the
World regarding the affair, and that both
he and his friends felt that the prompt ref
utation through the World had 6et the in
famous stories at rest forever.'
"Ex-Gov. Hartranft, in conversation to
day about the stories in connection with tho
execution of Mrs. Surratt, said he was glad
that they had been effectually disproved;
that he himself had immediate charge of
the execution, and that afterward he re
ceived letters from Mrs. Surratt's daughter
ami others, thanking him for the consider
tion he had shown both to the prisoners
aud their friends.
