STILL PULLING WOOL.
While the wages in woolen mills and
the price paid for wool in the woolen
mills of our country have steadily de
clined for tweniy years, except for a
few years when we coined all our
American silver, there are politicians
who still attribute all the depression
of our country to the Wilson tariff.
The Wilson tariff putting wool on
the free list went Into effect August
28, 18U1, while the clause lowering the
duties oir manufactured woolens went
into effect January 1, 1895.
These wool pullers do not tell you
there -Is a duty on hops of 8 cents a
pound, and you sell them for 2 to 3
cents; on wheat of 20 cents a bushel
and it sells for 30 cents In Eastern
Orcgen; and on nulls of 221 percent,
and the trust has doubled the price
within four months.
Tho McKlnley platform says admit
all immigration that can read and
write. Ills platform Is drawn espe
cially to admit the skilled labor
needed to operate the woolen mills,
while Bryan's platform says the way
to protect American labor is to ex
clude tho pauper labor of Europe.

Capitol National bank, who started In

Forcing a war widow to enroll her

example of Salem politics.
Why (should u mlllonairo corpora

or President Cleveland cither, trouble
himself about a college presidency?
The people who can still atlord to
insure will bo hilarious to know that
tho 'Frisco Insurance trust has signed
an agreement to quit cutting rates.
Tho street liars who said Bryan was
drunk nt Salem now go so far as to say
ho got hilarious at a Salem Knight's
of Pythias banquet. They have to
swallow their words and crawl into
their holes almost beforo thoy can
opou their mouths on this line, but it
shows to what desperate straits they
are driven in this Republican stronghold.

GRAND ARMY PROSTITUTION.
A systematic effort Is being made
to FORCE all members of the G. A.

Republic was a political organization.
It has ever been a nonpartisan order,
as all purely patriotic and fraternal

S A PERFECT FOOD FOR INFANTS S
The following I the full and com
plete platform as adopted by the
National Democratic convention:
We, the Democrats of the United
States in national convention assemb
led, do reatll rm our allegiance to those
great essential principles of justice
and liberty upon which our Institu
tions are founded, and which the
Democratic party has advocated from
.Jefferson's time to our own freedom
of speech, freedom of the press, free
dom of conscience, the preervatlun of
personal rights, the equality of all
citizens before the law, and the faith
ful observance of constitutional limi
tations. During all these years the Demo
cratic party has resisted the tendency
of selfish interests to the centraliz
ation of governmental power, and
steadfastly maintained the Integrity
of the dual scheme of government
established by the founders of this
republic of republics.' Under its
guidance and teachings the great
principle of local self-government has
found its best expression in the main
tenance of the rights of the states
and In its assertion of the necessity
of confining the general government
to the exercise of powers granted by
the constitution of the United States.
The constitution of the United
States guarantees to every citizen the
rights of civil and religious liberty.
The democratic party has always been
the exponent of political liberty and
religious freedom and it renews its
obligations and reailrms -Its devotion
to these fundamental principles of
Recognizing that the money ques
tion Is paramount to all others at this
time, we invite attention to the fact
that the constitution names silver
and gold together as the money metals
of the United States, and that the
first coinage law passed by congress
under the constitution made the sil
ver dollar the money unit, and admitted-gold
to free coinage at a ratio
based upon tho sliver dollar unit.
We declare that the actof 1873 de
monetizing silver without tho knowl
edge or approval of the American peo
ple has resulted in tho appreciation
of gold, and a corresponding fall in
the price of commodities produced by
thepeeple; a heavy increase in the
burden of taxation and of all debts,
public and private; the enrichment of
the money lending class at homo and
abroad, tho prostration of industry,
and impoverishment of the people.
We are unalterably opposed to mon
ometallism, which has locked fast the
prosperity of an industrial people in
paralysis of hard times, Gold mono
metallism is a British policy, and Its
adoption has brought other nations
into financial servitude to London.
It Is not only un-American, but antl
Amerlcan, and It can be fastened on
the United States only by tho stifling
of that spirit aud love of liberty
which proclaimed our political inde
pendence In 1770 and won in the war
of the revolution.
We demand the free and un limited
coinage of both silver and gold at the
present legal ratio of 16 to 1, without
waiting for tho aid or consent of any
other nation. We demand that the
standard silver dollar shall bo a 'full
legal tender, equally with gold, for all
debts, public and private, and we
favor such legislation as will prevent
for the future the demonetization of
any kind of legal tender money by
We are opposed to the policy and
practice of surrendering to (be hold
ers of tho obligations, ofthe. JJnlted
States, the opUj)iy rJsorvje&DJv ajv.to.

We are opposed to the Issuing of interest-bearing
bonds of the United
States In time of peace, and condemn
the trafficking with banking syndi
cates which, in exchange for bonds
and at an enormous profit to them
selves, supply the federal treasury
with gold to maintain the policy of
ISSUE OF MONEY.
Congress alone has the power to
coin and issue money, and Prerldent
Jackson declared that this power
could not be delegated to coi positions
or individuals. We therefore de
nounce the issuance of notes intended
to circulate as money by national
banks as In derogation of the my 1
tution, and we demand that .tl L .j.i r
which Is made a legal tender rr
public and private debts or which is
receivable for duties to the United
States shall be be issued by the gov
ernment of the United States and
shall be redeemable in coin.
We hold that tariff duties should be
levied for purpose of revenue, such du
ties to be so adjusted as to operate
equally throughout the country and
not discriminate between class or sec
tion, and that taxation should be
limited by the needs of the govern
ment honestly and economically ad
ministrated. We denounce as disturbing to busi
ness the Republican threat to restore
the McKlnley law, which has twice
been condemned by the people In na
tional elections, and which, enacted
under the false plea of protection to
homo industry, proved a prolific
breeder of trusts and monopolies, en
riched the few )y the expense of the
many, restricted trade, and deprived
the producers of the great American
staples of access to their natural mar
kets. INCOME TAX.
Until the money question is settled
we are opposed to any agitation for
further changes in our tariff laws, ex
cept such as are necessary to meet tho
deficit in revenue caused by the ad
verse decision of the supreme court on
the Income tax. But for this decision
by the supreme court there would be
no deficit in the revenue under thclaw
passed by a Democratic congress in
strict pursuance of the uniform deci
sions of that court for 100 years, that
court having in that decision sus
tained constitutional objections to Its
enactment which had preciously been
overruled by tho ablest judges who
have ever sat on the bench. Wo de
clare that It is tho duty of congress to
use all the constitutional power which
remains after that decision, or which
may come from its reversal by the
court as it may hereafter be consti-
