iTbV Democratic party of
cotmtr; Anzona. in convention assem-
bled,vHbercby reaffirm our belief in and
auegiante to tne time uooorea principles
of Democracy, and do unqualifiedly en
dorse the Democratic National Platform
adopted in Chicago, and Democratic
territorial platform as adopted ot Wil
liams, and the national and territorial
ticket, and we congratulate the people
that alter the most strenuous attempts
to subvert those traditions and princi
ples, by those high in power and in the
interests of the money lenders of Eu
rope, the Democratic party has risen in
its might and cast out such traitors and
has forced them into the party of plutoc
racy, corporations, and assassins of labor
beaded by Mark Hanna and his gang,
where they properly belong, and where
they are receiving the hearty support
and co-operation of every monoply and
corruptionist in our country.
We congratulate ourselves and the
whole peoole that every industrial soci
ety and all parties which sincerely be
lieve in our government returning to
the money of our fathers and the consti
tution, are with us today in this mighty
struggle for the emancipation of sixty
millions of white slaves from the cor
rupting influences of gold monometal
lism, and that there is every -eason to
believe from the'' signs ot the times,
that the machinery of this government
will again soon be placed in the hands of
We believe the free and unlimi
ted coinage of silver is the paramount
and overshadowing- principle of the
present campaign, and that no person
should be elevated 10 office or position
of power who does not believe in such
free coinage by our own government,
without waiting for the consent or as
sistance of other nations for we charne
that it was the corrupting influences
in Europe whichforced upon its people
gold monometallism and therby reduc
ed the wage earners to serfdom; and
the same people who wrought such havoc
there, are attempting to do the same
thing here, and to our sorrow, they have
partally succeeded; thereby reducing
th maiorty of our own people to finan
cial slavery, and impoverishing every
producer of wealth in the United States.
TheiTontr-ction of the currency, of our
country, by the demonetization of silver
was the most gigantic and heinous crime
ever perpetrated on any "people in the
history of th -sis'; wnrW; ud those
-irpusiDIe tor it are traitors to freedom
and Republican institutions, and those
who would now seek to maintain the
present miserable condition of our own
people by the maintenance of the pre'
ent eold standard bc :t. present op
portunity is offered in an expansion of
currency for tne alleviation ot the sutter
ines ol humanity, are parties to that
great crime, in sympathy with the influ
ence which seeks to establish on the
mins of our government a plutocracy;
or, they deceived and misled by the
glittering falshoods circulated by the
enemies of "the people the money
changers of the east.
W pledge our party that every nomi
nee of this convention is a free silver
man who endorses every sentiment of
this platform, and we ask the endorse
ment of their candidates by the penpl-
and we pledge to the people a mi"
economical administration of terri'nri
and county affairs than has charact-riz'"
our government for the past tn yar
and that no more revenue shall be raised
by taxation .nan is requ'red for the
maintainance of our county government
economically administered, and that the
revrnue raised shall not be dive'trd for
and other purpose than the strict admin
titration c' county rovernment. In ask

pledge an efficient, honest and economi

Rejolvtd, That we moat heartily
endorte the principles of lbs Republi
can pa'ty as enunciated by tbosn
great leader Lincoln, Seward and
Chase and that we pledge ourselves
to mainUin.aad support the doctrines
of the party as set forth hy them.
And we especially call the attention of
the people of the land to the advice
given to the nation in bit farewell ad
drees by that patriot, soldier anil
statesman, George Washington, as it
is of particular significance at this
time, and these are the words: "Be
ware of foreign influence, -as the most
baneful foe of a Republican govern
ment." We therefore condemn, and
reject as un-American and unworthy
of acceptance, any suggestion ot sub
mitting anything appertainiug to
American affairs to a foreign confer
ence, belieung that wo are fully able
to defend our countiy ud t lolect
We npprovo of a taril that will pive
American lalor a j'ls return, and
furni I. a rereiuie that will maintain
our govrrnment, and oluo provide a
linking fund for the redemption of
our national indebtedness.
We approve of a law of reciprocity
that will add to our commerce and
furnish a market for our surplus pro
We insist that Arizona be given the
rights of statehood, and we demand
tfiis as aright and not as a favor.
We demand a restriction of immi
gration under proper laws, and that
mcru caie should be observed in ad
nutting people to our shores, auu that
none should be given the rights of
citlze;bip until they are fitted to ex
ercise th'i same in an intelligent man
ner. We are opposed to the appropri
ation of any of the public funds for
sectarian purposes, and we claim that
every expenditure of public moneys
should be for publie purposes only.
We pledge ourselves to nominate
only honest, intelligent and capable
men for the varioui offices to be voted
