There is no hope of relief from the conditions that now curse the American people, until both of the old parties have been destroyed. They are the willing and subservient tools of corporate power, and are utterly unable to perform a single noble and patriotic act.

Hill. ; This is a large octavo booH of 450 pages, condensed by tabulation into a small book that it may be universally sold and circulated at a low price. , Its purpose is to clearly present, in a manner entirely non-partisan,-the merit attaching to each party.

Adnpt'd by the Conf'ntlon at Om haXebranka, July 4. 1892. AttMjmblt! upon tin one hnndnd and nixtpt-uiu aniiiTeirwiry ot the Uti-luration of Inilrtjenden', t"" rwpw h Tarty of AmericH, in their tt national conven tion, iuvokintf umih their action th bleintrt 01 Almighty (Jod. puts forth in the name, and on behalf of the jieopie of the country, the following preamble and declaration of principles: The condition- which surround us best jtmtify our co-operation; we meet in the midrft of a uation brought to the vrtie of moral, political and material ruin. Corruption dominates the ballot box, the legislator, the Cont;reP, and touches even the ermine of the bench. The people are demoralized; most of the states have been compelled to isolate tbe voters at thepolling places to prevent universal intimidation or bribery. The newnpapers are largely subsidized or muzzied; public opinion silenced; business prostrated; our homes covered with mortgages; labor impover ished; and the land concentrating in the hands of the capitalists. The urban workmen are denied the right of organi zation for self-protection; imported pau perized labor beats down their wages; a hireling army, unrecognized by our law, is established to shoot them down; and they are rapidly degenerating into Euro pean conditions. The fruits of the toil of millions are boldly stolen to build up colossal fortunes for a few, unprecedented in the history of mankind, and the pos sessors of these in turn despise the re public and endanger liberty. From the same prolific womb of governmental in justice we breed the two great clauses tramps and millionaires. The national powr to create money is appropriated to enrich bondholders; a vast public debt, payable in legal tender currency, has been luntlnd intogold-bear-ing bonds, thereby adding millions to the burdens of the people. Silver, which has been accepted as coin since the dawn of history, has been de monetized to add to the purchasing pow er of gold, by decreasing the value of all forms of property, as well as human la bor, and the supply of currency is pur posely abridged to fatten usurers, bank rupt enterprise, andenslave industry. A vast conspiracy against mankind has been organized on two continents, and it is rapidly taking possession of the world. If not met and overthrown at once it forebodes terrible social convul sious, the destruction of civilization, or tbe establishment of an absolute despot ism. We have witnessed for more than a quarter of a century the strnggles of the two great political parties for power and plunder, while grievous wrougs have been inflicted upon the suffering people. We charge that the controlling influence dominating both these parties have per mitted the existing dreadful conditions to develop, without serious effort to prevent or restrain them. Neither do they now promise us any sunsratitial reform. They have agreed together to ignore, in the coming cam paign, every issue but one. They pro pose to drown the outcries of a plundered people with the uproar of a sham battle over 1 he tariff; so that capitalists, corpo rations, national banks, rings, truxts, watered stock, the demonetization of sil Ter, and the oppressions of the usurers may all be lost siuht of. They propose to sacrifice our huuies, lives and children on the altar of Mammon; to destroy the multitude in order to secure corruption luuus iroin tbe millionaires. Assembled on the anniversary of the birthday of the uation, and filled with tbe spirit of the grand generation of men, who estab lished our independence, we seek to re store the government of the Republic to the hands of "the plain people," with whose class it originated. VVe assert our purposes to be identical with the purpose of the national constitution: "to forma more perfect union, establish justice, in sure domestic tranquility, providefor the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty ourselves and our posterity." We declare that this republic can only endure as a free government while built upon the love of the wholepeopleforeach 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 grewoutof it must die with it; and that we must be in fact, as we are in name, one united brother hood. Our country finds itself confront ed by conditions for which-there is no precedent in the history of the world Our annual agricultural productions amount to billions of dollars in value. which must within a few weeks or months be exchanged for billions of dollars of commodities consumed in their produc tion; the existing currency supply is wholly inadequate to make thisexchange. The results are falling prices, the forma tion of combines and rings, and the im poverishment of theproJucingclass. We pledge ourselves that if givwi power we win laoor to correct these evils by wise and reasonable legislation, in accordance with the terms of our platform. . . We believe that the powers of govern mentin other words, of the people should be expanded (as in the case of the postal service) as rapidly and as far as the good sense of an intelligent people, and the teachings of experience, shall jnetify; to the end that oppression, in justice and poverty shulleventuallycease in the land. 1 While our sympathies as a party of re form are naturally upon the side of every proposition which. will tend to make men intelligent, virtuous and temperate, we nevertheless regard these questions im portant as they are as secondary to the great issues now pressing for solution; and upon which not only our individual prosperity, but the very existence of free institutions depends; and we ask all men to Hrst help us to determine whether we are to have a republic to administer, be fore we differ as to the conditions upon which it is to be administered; believing that the forces of reform this dny organ ized will never cease to move forward 11 11 til every wrong is righted and equal pri vileges established for all the men and women of this country. . . ' We declare, therefore, CXION OF THE PEOPLE. First, That the union of the labor forces of the United States this day con summated, shall be permanent and per petual; may its spiriteuter into allhearts for the salvation of the republic 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 man will not work neither shall he eat." The interests of rural and civic labor are the same; their enemies are identical. Third. We believe that the time has come when the railroad corporations will either cn the people or ti e prop! liiusst n 11 the rnilrtitidx; and should the jMiverniiM-iit ntr uon the work of own ing nml maiiHgiug the railroads, we should iavor an amendment to the con stitution by which all jernons engaged in the government service shall be pro tected by civil service regulations of the most rigid character, so as to prevent the increase of the power of the national administration by the use of uch addi tional gouernmeut employes. FIXA.VCE. We da maud a national currency, safe, sound and flexible; issued by the general government only; a full legal tender for all debts public and private; and that without the use of bnnkingeorporations; a just equitable and efficient means of distribution direct to the people, at a tax not to exceed 2 per cent per annum, to be provided us set forth in the sub-treasury plan of the Farmers' Alliance, or some better system; also by payments in discharge of its obligations for public improvements: We demand free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold at the present legal ration of 16 to 1. We demand that the amount of cir culating medium he speedily increased to not less than 60 per capita. We demand a graduated income tax. We believe that the money of the country should be kept, as much as pos sible, in the hands of the people; and hence we demand that ail state and na tional revenues shall be limited to the necessary expenses of the government, economically and honestly administered. We demand that postal savings banks be established by the government for the safe deposit of the earnings of the people and the facilitation of exchange. TtUNSPORTATION. Transportation being a means of ex change and a public uecessity; the gov ernment should own and ojierate the railroads in the interest of the people. The telegraph and telephone, like the postofflce system, being a necessity, for the transmissionof news.shouldbeowned and operated by the government in the interests of the people. lands. The land, including all natural re sources of wealth, is the heritage of the people, and should not be monopolized for speculative purposes; and alien owner ship of laud should be prohibited. All land now held by railroads and other corporations in excess of their actual needs, and all lands now owned by aliens, should be reclaimed by the gov ernment and held for actual settlers only. . ' RESOLUTIONS. The following resolutions were offered indejiendent of the platform, and were adopted, as expressive of the sentiments of the convention: Resolved. That wedemand afreebnllnt, end a fuir count in all elections, ami pledge ourselves to secure to it every legal voter without federal intervention, throuirh the adoption by the states il the unpervtrted Australian necret ballot system.

Resolved, That we cordially sympa thize with the efforts of organized work ingmen to shorter the hours of labor and demand a rigid enforcement of the exist ing eight-hour law on government work, and ask that apetiulty clause be added to said law.

Resolved, That we commend to the thoughtful consideration of the people and the reform press, the legislative sys tem known as the Initiative and Referen dum. Resolved, That we favor a constitu tional provision limiting the oflice of a president and vice president to one term, and providing for the election of the senators by direct vote of the people.

Cuban RrlirU Maid to I Raining Baroa Kava'a Intuit May lad to Trniiltle with Hair Secretary I'M I l'a easy. Washington. March 18. In the event of Spain's apologizing for the Allianca affair, the question has arisen as to what form the apology will take. In diplomatic usage an expression of re-, gret is often accompanied by an offer to salute the flag of the country to which an international discourtesy has ;.H-en given. This was the course of the United States In saluting the French flag In 1855 and saluting the Brazilian flag in 1866. In the former case the French flag was saluted as a mark of apology for the Indignity against the French consul at San Francisco. Mr. Marcy, the then secretary of state, first offered to make the apology by saluting the French flag on a French man-of-war stopping at San Franclseo.' Count de Fai tlges, the French minister at Wash ington, asked in addition that when the consular flag at San Francisco was rehoisted it should receive a salute. This was declined by Mr. Marcy. France was not satisfied, but after some months the French government agreed to accept as sufficient satisfaction an expression of regret by the government of the United States, coupled with the pro vision that "when a French national ship or squadron shall appear In the harbor of San Francisco, the usual au thorities there, military or naval, will salute the national flag borne by such ship or squadron with a national salute, and the French ship or squadron whose flag Is thus saluted will return the sa lute gun for gun." The salute to the flag was thus given and with such an apol ogy the incident closed. In lls66-4ha. United States sent a man-of-war to Ki a il for the express purpose of offering an apology by firing a salute to the Ura tillan flag. The United States had seized the confederate ship Florida at Uahia, Braall, thus violating the neu trality laws. Mr. Seward, then secre tary of state, announced a purpose to make full apology. Including the dis missal of the United States consul at Bahla, who advised the attack, , the court-martial of the United States na val commander who committed the of fense, and a salute to the Brazilian flag. The last feature of the apology was executed with much ceremony on the very spot where Brazilian neutrality had been invaded. In the Vtrglnus case the United States demanded a salute of our flag as a part of the apology from Spain, but the salute was afterward waived on Its appearing that the papers of the Vlrglnus were based on a false affidavit. The official salute of the United States to foreigners is made up of as many shots as there are states in the union. The salute to the president In his fleet is a fled number of twenty one guns. Should Spain salute our flag it would probably be by firing twenty one guns. FAVA'8 ACT AN INSl'LT. ' Diplomatic Washington Aghast at th Ambassador' Course. . ' Washington. March 16. In an extend ed article on the lynching of Italian sub jects In Colorado, the Post this morning says: "The action of the representatives of the Italian government here' In rela tion to the Colorado massacre has been, the subject of lively gossip In diplomatic: circles and at the Metropolitan club, where the diplomats and the army and navy officers congregate. The cheeks of some of the American officers have burned as they have listened to the criticisms of the act of Assistant Secre tary Uhl In personally receiving th Marquis Imperial! and entertaining his verbal remonstrances. Trained diplo mats, who have been stationed at vari ous capitals in Europe and In other parts of the world, declare that the method of verbal remonstrance in such cases is only practiced and only per mitted in the case of second rate or half-clvlllzed powers like those of North Africa and Asia. There is no rule of diplomatic etiquette better established among civilized nations than that form al complaints of this sort should be in writing. Assistant Secretary Uhl is said to be much mortified, since the matte was brought to his attention, that he re ceived the young Italian secretary of legation for any such purpose. It does not clearly appear. If a formal remon strance had to be made, why It did not come from Baron Fava, the minister of the kingdom of Italy at Washington. The statement Is said to have been made that the baron was 111 on the day his secretary called at the state department but he was not too 111 to give a formal dinner within a day or two thereafter, and there Is no serlouB pretense any where that he was not well enough to affix his official signature to a proper remonstrance drawn tip at the Italian legation. 1 Kingston, Jamaica, March 17.rAu- REBEI.8 GAIN GOOD POINTS. It Is Said They Are Rapidly Advancing in Cuba. thentic advices direct state that the rev olution is progressing most favorably. Exact information as to the various movements cannot be readily obtained, owing to government Censorship over telegraphic communications. This was foreseen and provided for. Each section of the revolutionary party has been op erating Independently so far. Each fights on his own account, thus distract itig the Spanish forces and leaving them In perpetual doubt as to where and when the next blow will be struck. At every point occupied the Insurgents' first act is to destroy the telegraph, so the gov ernment shall be left in the dark as to their movements. It is supposed at Havana and Santiago that Dr. Grillo, the president of the autonomy party, and Urbanan San.chez have fled before the Spaniards. Their movements, how ever, are strategic. Grillo is here. He came yesterday via Montego bay, San chez has gone to San Domingo. The arrival of Grillo Is but the carrying out of one of the principal plans of the In surgents. Fourteen other Insurgents ao compunled him. ' ' Man and Wife Suffocated. Indianapolis, Ind.,' March 18.
