DEMOCRATIC CLUB ADDRESS.
Lava Down the law or Taxation
Washington-, Feb. 2s. The National
Association of IXnocratic clulis has issued
an address on tariff reform in which it says
that in the campaign of lst: "The vital
principle of strict construction was put at
issue and it was deliberately approved by
a great majority of the votes cast. The
tariff question, resolved and settled by the
application of the rule embodied in the
tentjiendment, is a question no longer,
if the overwhelming judgment of the peo
ple expressed at the polls is to be respected
and obeyed by their representatives. The
details of tariff rcform-of a system of tax
ation looking only to the largest returnsof
revenue consistent with the widest liberty
ot trade remain to be ladjusted by a Dem
ocratic congress with the aid of an enlight
ened executive chosen;to serve alike the in
terests ot all classes of Ameripan citizens."
The Chicago Platform Plank.
Jefferson is then quoted against revenue
for protection, and the address proceeds:
"With great deliberation and solemn em
phasis the Chicago convention took the
same position. It is unnecessary to set out
here that clear and definite provision of the
platform. It was one which could neither
oe iui8iinuertuKia nor misconstrued. It
planted the Democratic party and its can
didate:) of all grades, from the highest to
the lowest lit ihitt campaign, on the origi-
nal and impregnable Democratic ground-
upon the constitution strictly construed
which forbids under any pretense whatever
every form of taxation except taxation for
purely public purposes." The address is a
plea for strict construction of both the con
stitution and the Democratic platform in
dealing with the tariff question, and urges
organization and t he necessity of another
tariff reform majority in 1894.

between appropriations anil estimates for
the past five years shows that, contrary to
what has been the generally accepted opin

the fact that appropriations have been
