A SOUND PLATFORM.
Resolutions Adopted by the Democrotl
Convention at Sprincfield.
The Democracy of Illinois, in convention
assembled, reaffirms its devotion to demo
cratic principles, and pledges itself to un
tiring effort for their supremacy. It be
lieves that the powers delegated by the
people should be strictly construed; that
the autonomy of the states and their rights
of local self-government and home rule
should be realonsly guarded as essential to
the preservation of our form of govern
ment; that no money should be taken from
the people under any pretext for other
than public purposes; that the strictest
economy should be exercised in all govern
mental expenditures, whether local, state,
or national, and that the legislation should
be confined to the legitimate objects of
We recognize that the tariff is a tax, and
that all taxation is a burden. Where it is
Imposed justly and fairly to meet the
necessary expenditures of an econom
ical and prudent administration of pub
lic affairs, it will becheerfully borne
by the people. "When levied up
on the suggestion of private greed
to promote monopoly and extortion, to
bnild up the fortunes of a few beneficiaries
and favored classes at the expense of the
general welfare, it is leavened with injus
tice and oppression, and a burden, is intol
erable to freedom and inconsistent with
every principle of sound government
The Republican party has sought to fasten
an iniquitous and oppressive system of
taxation upon the American people. The
effect of its legislation on this subject is
to fetter trade and commerce, those swift
agencies of civilization, and disorganize
and disarrange every element of industry,
to foster injurious combinations, and en
hance the prices of necessaries of life, and
to demoralize the public confidence.
"We indorse to the fullest extent the
patriotic administrat on of Grover Cleve
land, and declare without reservation our
fall and complete approval of the views
contained in his message to congress oa
the. tariff in ISs".
We demand an immediate revision of
the tariff, free raw material, a reduction
In the duties on the necessaries of life, and
anch changes in the shipping and naviga
tion law as shall restore the American
merchant marine and the supremacy of
the American flag on the high seas.
We reiterate our allegiance to the his
toric policy of the democratic party, in
favor of honest money, the gold and silver
coinage provided by the constitution of
the United States, and of a currency con
vertible into such coinage without loss to
the holder, and we recommend an invita
tion by our government to the commercial
powers of the world for an international
conference for the purpose of fixiDg a ratio
between the values of gold and silver, so
that parity may be maintained between the
two metals, and all mints be thrown open
to free coinage.
We denounce the reckless extravagance
of the billion-dollar congress, controlled
by a Republican majority, and distin
guished only by the passage of the oppres
sive McKinley bill and the wicked waste of
the people s money.
We believe firmly that public officers
tbould be faithful servants of the people.
and that in every instance of appointment
to office the test should be rather capacity
for efficient public service than past or
prospective political activity.
We are proud of our common school
system and pledge ourselves to uphold and
improve it, for free institutions cannot ex
1st without universal education.
We denounce the Republican party f orfen
acting a law which tends to bring the cause
of popular education into disrepute; a law
which takes from the parent the right to
educate his child according to the dictates
Of nis conscience; a law which creates a
state inquisition over schools toward which
the state contributes nothing; a law which
gives the absolute power to every school
board, no matter how ignorant or spiteful
its actions, to harass and persecute a large
class of people who are among our best
citizens and who do their full duty, both
toward the state and their children, and
who, by their labor, their patriotism, and
intelligence have contributed very much
to our prosperity and greatness.
Such a law is further to be condemned
as an invasion of that religious liberty
guaranteed by the constitution, and in effect
amounts to an interference by the state
with the church. This law is antagonistic
to democratic institutions, and we demand
Its unconditional repeal, and we pledgi
our candidates for the legislature to vole
and work to that end.
We favor the election of United States
senators by a direct vo e of the people.
We denounce the creation of trusts
which, however disguised, have for their
end the stifling of competition and the con
trol of production and prices, with a view
of oppressing the people; and we demand
from our legislature the passage of stria
gent laws to aid the judicial branch of the
state in stamping out such iniquitous de
vices of monopolists to defraud the people.
We believe that in a free country the
curtailment of the absolute rights of the
individual should only be such as is essen
tial to the peace and good order of the
The limit between the proper subjects of
governmental control and those which can
be more fittingly left to the moral sense
