A certain congressman from a mountain

which sometimes fails in the midst of
what might otherwise be an eloquent per

matter connected with tariff, he ex

cleared his throat. The suspense, which
seemed to last for fully a minute, was
more painful. to the auditors than to the
orator, for everyone was wondering
whether he would say "trousers" cr
"pants," and some were even hoping that
be might say "pantaloons." Even "over

"pants" is most unparliamentary.
But all fears were without foundation.
He cleared his throat with the greatest
care, and in a death-like stillness resumed
his oration where he had dropped it: "to

forever in a gale of laughter.

"We, th-j democratic party of the United
States, In national convention assembled,
declare its devotion to the essential prin
ciples of the democratic faith which
brings us together in party communion.
"Under them local tfelf-Kovernnient and
national unity and prosjrity were alike
established. Ihey underlaid our Independ
ence, the structure of our free republic
and every democratic extension from
Louisiana to California and Texas to Ore
gon, which preserved faithfully in all the
states thg tie between taxation and. rep
resentation. They yet inspire the masses
of our people, guarding jealously their
rignts ana liberties, and cherishlns their
fraternity, peace and orderly develop
ment. They remind us of our duties and
responsibilltie ? as citizens and - impress
upon us. particularly at this time, the
necessity of reform and the rescue of the
administration of government from the
headstrong, arbitrary and spasmodic
methods which distract business by Un
certainty and pervade the public mind
with dread, dintrust and perturbation.
"The application of these fundamental
principles to the living issues of the day
constitutes the first step toward the as
sured peace, safety and progress of our
nation. Freedom of the press, of con
science and -of speech; equality before
the law of all citizens; the right of trial
by jury; freedom of the person defended
by the writ of habeas corpus; liberty of
personal contract untrammeled by sump
tuary laws; the supremacy of the civil
ovtr military authority; a well-disciplined
militia; th separation of church and
state; economy in expenditures; low
taxes, that labor may be lightly bur
dened: the prompt and sacred fulfillment
of public and private obligations; fidelity
to treaties; peace and friendship with all
nations; entangling alliances with -none;
absolute acquiescence in the will of the
majority, the vital principle of republics
these are doctrines which democracy has
established as proverbs of the nation,
and they should be constantly invoked,
preached, resorted to and enforced.
( out rolingr Eipcniei,
"1. Large reductions can readily be
made in the annual expenditures of the
government without impairing the efll
2iency of any branch of the public service,
and we shall insist, upon the Btrictest
economy and frugality compatible with
vigorous and efficient civil, military and
naval administration as a right of the
people, too clear to be denied or with
"2. The enforcement of honesty in' the
fiublic service, and to that end a thorough
egislatlvc investigation of those execu
tive departments of the government al
ready known to teem with corruption as
well as other departments suspected Of
harboring corruption, and the punishment
of ascertained corruptionists without fear
or favor or regard to persons. The per
sistent and deliberate refusal of both the
senate and house of representatives to
permit such investigation to be made by
either branch of congress demonstrates
that only by a change in the executive
and in the house of representatives can
complete exposure, punishment and cor
rection be obtained.
"In broader furtherance of that end the
federal government should not permit it
self to be robbed by entering into con
tracts with convicted trusts or unlawful
combinations in restraint of Interstate
trade, existing in violation of law. We
believe that one of the best 'methods of
procuring economy and honesty in the
public service is to have public ofnciahi,
from the occupant of the White House
down to the lowest of them, return, us
nearly as may be, to Jeffersonlan sim
plicity of living.
"3. We favor the nomination and elec
tion of a president trained in the ways of
the constitution, who shall set his fac;
sternly against executive Usurpation of
legislative and judicial functions, whether
that usurpation be ruled under the guise
of executive construction of existing
laws, or whether it take refuge in the
tyrant's pleas of necessity of superior
-4. The democratic party has been,
and will continue to be. the consistent
opponent of that class of tariff legislation
bv which certain interests have been per
mitted, through congressional favor, to
draw a heavy tribute from the American
people. This monstrous perversion of
those equal opportunities, which our po
litical institutions were established to se
cure, has caused what may once have
been infant industries to become the
greatest combinations of capital that the
world has ever known. These publicly
favored enterprises have, through trust
methods, been converted into monopolies,
thus bringing to an end domestic com
petition, which was the only check upon
the extravagant prolits made possible by
the protective system. These industrial
combinations, by the financial assistance
they can give, now control the policy of
the republican party.
"We lavor a wise, conservative and
businesslike revision and a gradual re
duction of the tariff by the friends of the
masses and for the common weal, and
not by the friends of its abuses, its ex
tortions and its discriminations, keeping
in view the ultimate end of 'equality of
burdens rind equality of opportunities,'
and the constitutional purpose of raising
a revenue by taxation, to-wit, the sup
port of the federal government. In all its
integrity and virility, but In simplicity;
and keeping also In view, as men of com
mon sense should, existing conditions,
howevftr wrongfully, mistakenly or un
justly brought about, and the danger to
the cause of tariff reform itself of abrupt
anil revolutionary reversal of policy.
"We should bear in mind, in short, these
two thins- : (1) The general principle that
the -sole derivation of the power of tax
ation Is the support Of the federal gov
ernemnt. economically, effectively and
constitutionally administered; and , (2),
the equal truth that in the assertion of
any general principle and in reaching
anv ultimate end, however ' sacred and
logically unavoidable, due regard, but
oftiy clue regard, must and should be paid
to actual existing conditions.
"We favor the reduction of tariff tax
ation up"-n trust-produced articles to the
point where foreign competition may en
ter the American market whenever trusts
and combines, seeking monopoly, raise
their prices to the American consumer
abovp a reasonable and just profit, by
such reduction depriving trusts and mo
nopolies of the power to extort from the
American people, under shelter of Ajf.er
xan law, prices higher than those charged
foreigners for Identical articles.
The Isthmian Canal.
"Our party, having long .and .earnestly
advocated the construction of Interoceanic
canal for the purpose of national defense
and commerce between . the states and
with foreign natiorrs. we favor the early
completion of the isthmian canal.
"But while making this declaration and
accepting the results as an accomplished
and irreversible fact, we can not too
forcibly express our disapproval of the
methods -by which, in disregard of the
usages and obligations of international
law and treaty obligations, the canal
route has been acquired, or too solemnly
record our hope that this precedent of
dctiitnt diplomacy may never be used
Against us to our humiliation and Injury.
Trusts and I'nlanfal Combinations.
"We recognize that the gigantic trust?
an4 combinations designed to enable cap
ital to secure more than its just share of
thr joint-product of capital and labor, and
nh.'ch have been fostered and promoted
unT republican rule, are a menace to
beneficial competition and an obstacle to
permanent business prosperity.
"We demand the vigorous and impartial
Pntorcement of the laws already made to
prevent and control such trusts and com
binations, and we favor such further leg
islation in restraint thereof as experience
shows to be necessary.
"Corporations chartered by authority of
the people must forever remain subject
to regulation in the jnterest of the people.
"A private monopoly is indefensible and
intolerable. We recognize the right of
capital In all legitimate lines of enter
prise to combine for the increase of busi
ness, for enlarging productive capacity,
and for decreasing the cost of production,
but when such combination in its pur
pose, or effect, creates, or tends to cre
ate a monopoly in its productions, to re
strain trade, or to stifle competition: to
increase cost to the consumer or to con
trol the market. It violates the spirit of
our lavs, becomes inimical tD public wel
fare and peace, and should be so regu
lated, controlled or prohibited by law
as to amply protect the public-interests.
"We demand that .the rstr&int of such
Illegal combinations be Intrusted to the
democratic partyr which Is not responsi
ble for .their existence, 'and which lias
ever protested against their continuance.
"We condemn the republican system of
legislation under which trust monopolies
are enabled - to exact higher prices for
their manufactured products from our
own people than they sell them for
"We demand an enlargement of the
powers of the interstate commerce com
mission, to the end that the traveling
Eublic and shippers of this country may
ave prompt and adequate relief for the
abuses they are now subjected to in the
matter of transportation.

source of no possible danger to our liber

Capital and Labor.
"We favor the enactment and adminis

impartially - their just rights. Capital and
labor ought not to be enemies. Each is

Just and lawful protection of our citizens

"The democracy would secure to .he
surviving soldiers and sailors and their
dependents generous pensions, not by an
arbitrary executive order, but by legis

"Our, soldiers and sailors" who defend
with their lives the constitution and the
laws have a sacred Interest In their Just
administration. They must therefore
share with us the humiliation with which
we have witnessed the exaltation of court
favorites, without distinguished service,
over the scarred heroes of many battles;
or aggrandized by "executive appropria
tions out of the treasuries of a prostrate
people, in violation of .the act of con
gress which fixes the compensation and
ollowances of the military officers.
"We denounce the ship" subsidy bill re
cently passed by the United States sen
ate as an iniquitous appropriation of
public funds for private purposes and a
wasteful, illogical and useless attempt to
overcome by subsidy the obstructions
raised by republican legislation to the

commerce on the sea.
"We favor the upbuilding of a mer
chant marine without new or additional
burdens Upon the people and without
bounties, from the public treasury. '

"We denounce the republican party for
its continuous and sinister encroach

DIGGING OUT DOLLARS.
Famous "Writer Received " First Sub

"The Black Cat."
-Boston, July, 1904. There is an old
adage that no door shuts without an
other opening. With the necessaries
of living constantly mounting higher,
old sources , of ' income disappearing
and old lines of effort closing up, it is
jncouraglng to find that the ceaseless
change and progress ' of the. times is
apening new fields of endeavor to the
intelligent and- ambitious. "The Bos
ton Daily Globe gives a notable exam
ple in the case of the famous Jack
.ondon, the brilliant war correspend
nt, now at the front,' who secured his
drst substantial recognition as a writer

yhang away at the typewriter. As
'or five dollars offered at some indefinite
Ime by a big magazine, for a story of
iimllar length, I finally received it,
after publication and. a great deal of
embarrassment and trouble."
Nor is Jack.London the only writer
who has been lifted from obscurity to
prominence by . the . lucky Black Cat,
which, as the New York . Press has
truly said, has done more for short
tory writers and short-story readers
than any other publication. Newton
Newkirk, the popular writer, who hails
from an obscure Ohio town, achieved
success through The Black Cat; so did
Stanley Edwards Johnson, the New
England author. Prank Lillie Pollock,
of North Carolina, and many others.
"Each of its famous prize competi
tions has brought new writers to the
front. In its most recent, the $2,100
prize was won by a young Texan who
had never before written a story, and
he second. $1,300, went to a lawyer's
vife in an obscure Missouri town.
It has just inaugurated another con
test in which $10,600 will be paid to
writers in sums of from $100 to $1,500.
This will, no doubt, add many new
names to the list of those who have
"arrived" through its recognition.
The conditions are announced in the
current issue of The Black Cat, and
will also be mailed free to any one by
the Shortstory Publishing company,
Boston, Mass. Even those who cannot
write a winning story themselves may
earn ten dollars by giving a timely
tip to some friend who can.
But all should bear in mind that it
will be entirely useless for any one to
send a story to The Black Cat contest
after October 1, or without first read
ing and complying with all the pub
lished conditions. Here is a chance for
the reader to dig dollars out of hi3

SAVED CHILD'S LIFE.
Remarkable Cure of Dropsy by Dodd's
Sedgwick, Ark., July 11. The ca?e of W.
S. Taylor's little eon is looked upon by those
interested in medical matters as one of the
most wonderful on record. In this connec
tion his father makes the following state
ment: "Last September, my little boy had
Dropsy; his feet and limb were swollen
to such an extent that he could not walk
nor put his shoes on. The treatment that
the doctors were (jiving him. seemed to do
him no good and two or three people said
his days were short, even the doctors, two
of the" best in the country told me he would
not get better. I stopped their medicine
and at once sent for Dodd's Kidney Pills.
I gave him three Tills a day, one morning,
noon and right for eight days; at the end
of the eighth day the swelling was all gone,
but to give the medicine justice, I gave him
eleven more Pill?. I used thirty-five Pills
in all and he was entirely cured. I consider
vour medicine saved my child's life. When
the thirty-five Pills were given him, he
could run, dance and sing, whereas before
he was 'an invalid in hi mother's arms
from morning until night."

which would make greater their grief. On

In Which the True Source of Physical
Strength Was Well
Speaking of toads, with incidental ref
erence to other salatory animal life, re
calls, a mot attributed to one of the jus
tices of the supreme court, which has
been giving the W ashington gossips a good
deal of amusement of late, says the Sevr
York Evening post. He was dining the
other evening with the family of a dis
tinguished ex-senator, who are noted for
their extravagant advocacy of the vege
tarian diet. Over the delicacies of the
table, which included pretty nearly every
form of edible plant life suited to the
season, conversation turned upon the fa
miliar theme; and the hostess, after try
ing in vain to convert her beef-reared
guest by arguments based on the chemical
constituents of various food, pleaded:
"But 6urely, Mr. Justice, you must ad
mit that vegetarianism means strength
and agility, when you remember that the
rabbit, which feeds wholly on vegetables,
can make such great leaps through the air
from hiding place to hiding place."
"True, madam," answered the jurist,
gravely, "but we must also remember that
the minute crenfure for which, naturalists
claim the ability to jump more times its
own length than any otfter, belongs to
the class of pure carnivora."
