OCR NATIONAL PLATFORM.
Tbe People's Party Platform Adopted
at Omaha July 4. 1802.
Assembled upon the 116th anniversary
of the Declaration of Independence, the
People's party of America, In their first
national convention, invoking upon
their action the blessings of Almighty
God, puts forth In the name and on be
half of the people of this country the
following preamble and declaration of
principles:
PREAMBLE.
The conditions which surround us
best justify our co-operation. We meet
In the midst of a nation breught to the
verge of moral, political and material
rnin. Corruption dominates the ballot
box, the legislatures, the congress, and
touches even the ermine of the bench.
The people are demoralized; most of
the states have been compelled to iso
late the voters at the polling places to
pre ventunlversal Intimidation or bri
bery. The newspapers are largely sub
sidized or muzzled, publlo opinion
silenced; business prostrated; our homes
covered with mortgages; labor Impover
ished and the land concentrating in the
bands of capitalists. The urban work
men are denied the right of organiza
tion for self protection; Imported pau
perized labor beats down their wages, a
hireling standing army, unrecognized
by our laws, is established to shoot
them down; and they are rapidly de
generating into European conditions.
The fruits of the toll of millions are
boldly stolen to bnild up colossal for
tunes for a few, unprecedented In the
hostory of mankind; and the possessors
of these, In turn, despise the republic
and endanger liberty. From the same
prolific womb of governmental Injustice
we breed the two great classes tramps
and millionaires. Tbe national power
to create money Is appropriated to en
rich bondholders. A vast publlo debt,
payable in legal tender currency, has
been funded into gold-bearing bonds,
thereby adding millions to the burdens
of the people.
Silver, which has been accepted as
coin since the dawn of history has been
demonetized to add to the purchasing
power of gold by decreasing the value
of all forms of property as well as hu
man labor, and the supply of currency
Is purposely abridged to fatten usurers,
bankrupt enterprise and enslave indus
tries. A vast conspiracy against man
kind has been organized on two conti
nents aud It is rapidly taking possession
of the world. If not met and over
thrown at once, it forebodes terrible
social convulsions, the destruction of
civilization or the establishment of an
absolute despotism.
We have witnessed for more than
quarter of a century the struggles
of the two great political parties
for power and plunder, while griev
ous wrongs have been inflicted
upon a suffering people. We charge
that the controlling influences dominat
ing both these parties have permitted
the existing dreadful conditions to de
velop, without serious efforts to prevent
or restrain them. Neither do they now
promise us any substantial reform.
They have agreed together to ignore,
in tbe coming campaign, every issue
but one. They propose to drown the
outcries of a plundered people with the
uproar of a sham battle over the tariff,
so that capitalists, corporations, nation
al banks, rings, trusts, watered stock,
the demonetization of silver and the
oppressions of the usurers may all be
lost sight of. They propose to sacrifice
our homos, lives and children on the
altar of mammon; to destroy the multi
tude in order to secure corruption funds
from the millionaires.
Assembled en the anniversary of the
birthday of the nation and filled with
the spirit of the grand generation
which established our independence,
we seek to restore the government of
the republio to the bands of "tbe plain
people," with whom it originated,
a We assert our purposes to be identical
with the purposes of the national con
stitution: "To form a more perfect
union, establish Justice, Insure domes
tic tranquility, provide for the common
defence, promote the general welfare,
and sesure the blessings of liberty to
ourselves and our posterity."
We declare that this republic can only
endure as a free goyernment while built
upon the love of the whole people for
each other and for the nation; that It
cannot be pinned together by bayonets;
that the civil war is over and that
every passion and resentment which
grew out oi it must die with it, and
that we must be in fact as we are in
namo, the united brotherhood of free
men.
Our country finds Itself confronted by
conditions for which there is no prece
dent In tbe history of the world; our
annual agricultural productions amount
to billions of dollars la value, which
must within a few weeks or months be
exchanged for billions of dollars of com
aiodllles consumed In their production;
the existing currency supply U wbol'y
Inadequate to make this exchange; the
results are falling prices, the formation
of combines and rings and the iuv
poverWhmcBtof the producing olas.
We pledge oureelves tba, if fives
pewcr, we will lab r to correct Ua
evils by U sad reaeonable Uls
istloa la aceortlaaoe Uh the fcrue
of our platform. We tUev that
tbs powers of goTerstnent-la other
words, l tke people-should be
laeadad eJ la Ue ease of tbe postal
service) as rapidly and as far as the
good sense of an Intelligent people and
the teachings of experience shall justify,
to the end that oppression, injus
tice and poverty shall eventually
cease in the land.
While our sympathies as a party of
reform are nrturally upon the side of
every proposition which will tend to
make men Intelligent, virtuous and
temperate, we nevertheless regard
these questions, important as they are,
as secondary to tbe great issues now
pressing for solution, and upon which
not only our individual prosperity, but
tbe very existence of free Institutions
depend; and we ask all men to first
help us to determine whether we are to
have a republic to administer, before
we differ as to the conditions upon
which it is to be administered. Believ
ing that the forces of reform this day
organized will never cease to move
forward until every wron j is remedied,
and equal rights and equal privileges
securely established for ell men and
women of the country, therefore:
WE DECLARE
irst That the union of the labor
forces of the United States, this day
consummated, shall be permanent and
perpetual. May its splritenter into all
hearts for the salvation of the republio
and the uplifting of mankind.
Second Wealth belongs to him who
creates it, and every dollar taken from
industry without an equivalent is rob
bery. "If any will not work, neither
shall he eat." Tbe Interests of rural
and civic labor are the same; their ene
mies Identical.
Third We believe that the time has
come when the railroad corporations
will either own the people or the people
m us. own the railroads, and should the
government enter upon the work of
owning and managing any or all rail
roads, we should favor an amendment
to tbe constitution by which all persons
engaged ia the government service
shall be placed under a civil service
regulation of the most rigid character;
so as to prevent the ' increase of the
power of the national administration by
the use of such additional government
employees.
PLATFORM.
We demand a national currency, safe,
sound and flexible, Issued by the gene
ral government only, a full legal tender
(or all debts, publlo and private,
and that without the use of
banking corporations; that a just, equit
able and efficient means of distribution
direct to the people, at a tax not to ex
ceed two per cent, per annum, to be
provided, asset forth in tbe subtreasury
plan oi the Farmers' Alliance, or some
better system; also by payments in dis
cbarge of its obligations for public Im
provements. We demand tho free and unlimited
coinage of silver aud gold at the present
legal ratio of 16 to 1.
We demand that the amount of circu
lating medium be speedily increased to
pot less than 150 per capita.
We demand a graduated Income tax.
We believe that the moneys of the
country should be kept as much as pos
sible in the bands of the people, and
hence we demand that all state and
national revenues shall be limited to
the necessary expenses of the govern
ment, economically and honestly ad
ministered. We demand that postal savings banks
be established by the government, for
tbe safe deposit of the earnings of the
people, and to facilitate exchange.
Transportation being a means of ex
change and a publlo necessity, the gov
ernment should own and operate tho
railroads In the interest of the people.
The telegraph and telephone, like
the postofQce system being a necessity
for transmission of news, should be
owned and operated by the government
in the interest of tho people.
The land, including all the natural
resources of wealth, is tho heritage of
all the people, aud should not be mono
polize d for speculative purposes, and
alien ownership of land should be pro
hibited. All lands now held by rail
roads and other corporations In excess
of their actual noeda, and all lands now
owned by aliens, should bo reclaimed
by the government and held for actual
settlers only.

SECRETARY HERBERT EX
PLAINS THEM.
BODTELLE'S RESOLUTION AHSWERED.
They War Placed I nder Hpectal Cob
Diiwilonrr mount's Control In Order
to Prevent a Conflict or Authority,
and at I he I(eo.oeat of Prcal
dent Cleveland JCuroeroas
Precedent Pointed Oat.
Wasiiinoion, March 12. Secretary
Herbert has made response to the
lioutelle resolution adopted by the
house calling on him to state his au
thority for Issuing instructions plac
ing the armed naval forces of the
United States and the use of
its ensign under the orders and
control of Special Commissioner
Blount at Honolulu March 11th, 1893.
The substance of tho answer is that
the action was necessary to prevent a
conflict .of authority, and that the
secretary's authority for issuing the
order was (the president the commander-in-chief
of the United States
army and navy. A number of prece
dents for this action are cited.
The secretary says that in order
that no conflict of authority should
arise with reference to the disposition
of tbe United States naval forces at
Hawaii, but that such forces should
be employed in entire harmony with
and iu support of the policy of the
diplomatic branch of the govern
ment, and in order that the speci
al commissioner appointed by
the president might, in the
discharge of the important duties
entrusted to him, be aided by
the fullest co-operation on the part of
the naval branch of the government,
it was deemed proper to direct that
Rear Admiral Skerritt should consult
freely with Mr. Blount and should
carry out any instructions given him
in regard to the course to bo pursued
by the United States naval forces at
the Hawaiian Islands.
The secretary gives a number of
precedents for bis action beginning in
1823 and running down to 1H81. In
1823 the United States ship Enter
prise was sent to Porto Rico and the
commander was to "regulate his oper
ations by the advice of Thomas Ran
dall, agent of the government." Dur
ing the Mexican war N'icholus Treat,
an agent of the state department was
clothed with power to arrange for a
mutual suspension of hostilities,
and Commodore l'erry was instructed
not to relax the vigor of his opera
tions, while he, Treat, remained in
Mexico, "unless he directs you to
suspended tliem." The order was
complied with. In 18U9 General Bab
cock went on board tho United States
ship Albany to San Domingo and the
commander was directed to conform
to all General Bubcock's wishes and
orders. In 1870, Lieutenant Com
mander Bunco had similiar orders. In
1881 during the Chill-l'eru war, Rear
Admiral Balch was directed to be
goverened as far as possible by the
wishes of William Henry Trescott, of
the department of state, special envoy
extraordinary and minister plenipo
tentiary. THE SUO.AR INVESTIGATION.
