We, the democrats of Rock Island
county represented in convention as
sembled, no hereby reatiirm our aiie
giance to the principles ol democracy
as enunciated in the Chicago platform
of 1896. We congratulate that pa
triotic statesman, Hon. William Jen
nlngs Bryan, npon ' his magnificent
canvass, unparalleled in bi story as
made by him in his gallant light uiioa
tbe platform for the presidency of the
I mted Mates agaiust the combined
trusts and combinations which hav
for more than a quarter of a century
lieen preying upon the rights and
privileges of the American citizens.
We condemn the republican admin
istration ol the state of Illinois as ex
travagant and having conducted itself
in such a manner as to disgust the
jieople, in that it had no respect for the
rights of the citizens of this great
state, and we especially place
our condemnation on Gov. Tan
ner in calling the extra ses
sion of the 40th general assembly
which has been unparalleled in the
history of our great state, in this,
that it was the first time that a gov
ernor of the state of Illinois havinp-
both branches of the legislature, of his
political party has deemed it neces
ary for the calling of an extra session.
We further condemn the extra session
as having been called solely for polit
ical pnrposes, namely; "for gerry
mandering the state of Illinois into
legislative districts which were unjust
and unfair. We congratulate the
people of the state that we have a su
preme court which has risen aliove
rty affiliation and has declared this
vicious bill unconstitutional.
That we commend the patriotic ac
tion of congress in declaring war
against the government of Spain for
the liberty and freedom of our neigh
lxrs in American waters, the Cubans,
and the vindication of the Maine and

40 pa and long-suffering people by the pres
ent governor oi Illinois, aided by one
of the worst legislatures of recent
years, is in striking contrast with the
condemnation by all self-respecting
citizens. Believing that values
created by the people, in the waT of
franchises, should be preserved" for
the use and benefit of the geaeration
which gives them existence, we pro
test against - the iniquitous Allen
franchise law passed by the last
republican legislature,, and demand
its repeal, with all measures of like
character, hereby instructing the del
egates to the senatorial convention to
insist on a pledge from our candidate
looking to this end. ' .
e take great pride in the soldiers
who have so gallantly and fearlessly
gone out from their dear homes in
the county of Rock Island to defend
the honor of the American flag.

late Private Louis Bledsoe our sympa
thy in the grief and misfortune which
has befallen them in the death of their
son in the cause of American liberty.
It is with intense sorrow that the
democratic party of Rock Islam!
county feels the loss it has sustained
since its last convention two years
ago in the death of those ideal, repre
sentatives and unfaltering democrats
John W. Potter and Thomas S. Silvia;
that through their qualities of party
fealty and leadership the democratic
party of Rock Island county recog
