A MODEL, PLATFORM.
Adopted by the Democrats
The following I the full and com
pleto platform as adopted by the
National Democratic convention:
We, the Democrats of the United
States in njitional convention assemb
led, do rcanirtn our allegiance to those
great essential principles of justice
and liberty upoti 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 preservation of
ruircrtnnt rlrrlitc ttir. ........it... .. ..
1n..uuta ..Buo. uiiu viUiiuiy 01 nil
ciuzens oerore uie nrw, and the faith-
rm ODservunce or constitutional limi-
During all these rears tho nnnwi.
cratlc party has resisted the tendency
" ociuou iiiicirska iu uie ccniraili!-
atlon of governmental power, and
steadfastly maintained the integrity
of the dual scheme of government
established by the founders of this
republic or lepublics. Under Its
guidance and teachings the great
principle of local self-go eminent has
found its best expression in the main
tenance of the rights of the state
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 relizious lirwrtv.
The democratic party has always been
the exponent or political liberty and
rclicious freedom and it renews Its
obligations and reatlrnis Its devotion
to these fundamental principles of
Kecogniziug that the money ques
tion is paramount to all others at tills
time, we Invite attention to the fact
that the constitution names silver
and gold together as the money metals
or the United States, and that the
first coinage law passed by congress
under the constitution made the sil
ver dollar the money unit, and ad
mitted gold to free coinage at a ratio
based upon the silver dollar unit.
We declare that the net of 1873 de
monetizing silver without the knowl
edge or approval of the American peo
ple has resulted in the appreciation
of gold, and a corresponding fall in
the price of commodities produced by
the peeple; a heavy increase in the
burden of taxation and of all debts,
public and private; the enrichment of
the money lending class at home and
abroad, the prostration of indnstry,
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 anti
American, and it can be fastened on
the United States only by the stifling
of that spirit and love of liberty
which proclaimed our political inde
pendence in 1776 and won in the war
of the revolution.
We demand the free and unlimited
coinage of both silver and gold at the
present legal ratio of 10 to 1, without
waiting for the aid or consent of any
other nation. We demand that the
standard silver dollar shall be 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
Wo are opposed to the policy and
practice or surrendering to the hold
ers or the obligations, of the United
States, the option reserved by law to
the government of redeeming such ob
ligations In either silver coin or gold
We are opposed to the issuing of in
terest-bearing bonds or tue united
SrntPH In time or rjeace. and condemn
the trafficking with banking syndi-
rvifAR which. In exchantro 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 Prorident
Jackson declared that this power
could not be delegated to corporations
or individuals. We therefore de
nounce the issuance of notes intended
to circulate as money by national
banks as in derogation of the consti
tution, and we demand that all paper
which is made a legal tender for
public and private debts or which is
receivable for duties to the United
Gtates shall be be issued by the gov
ernment of the United States ana
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
We denounce as disturbing to busl
neaTthe Republican threat to restore
the MoKinley law, which has twice
been condemned by the people in na
tional elections, and which, enacted
under the false plea of protection to
home Industry, proved a proline
breeder of trusts and monopolies, en
riched the few by the expense of the
many, restricted trade, and deprhed
the producers of the great American
staples of access to their natural mar
kets. income tax.
Until the money question "settled
we are opposed to any agitation for
further changes In our tariff laws, -cept
such as are necessary to meet trie
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 thelaw

Wedenounce arbitrary Interrerenccs

as a violation of the constitution of

object to government by injunction as

oppression, by which federal judges
