The Platform Brought Forth After a Day and a Night a Compromise of the Views of the Two Factions. St. Louis. July 1. Judge Alton B.

St. Louis, Mo.. July S. The crush of visitors around the doors, and inside the convention hnll at S' o'cloi k, the time s.-t for the opening cf the convention vas greater than at any previous scs&ion. It was some thing rarely paralleled at any national ( onvention. Extras had spread the nws over the town that a nomination was to be expected tonight, and the crowd was greater than at any pre vious session. At two or three en trances the pressure on the door-keepers and policemen was so great that lints were broken and many persons without tickets forced their way 'into the hall. It was a crowd that, judging from the prevailing symptoms, came with the full intention Of participating in the proceeding?, ior cheers, applause iinJ comment were forthcoming upon every occasion. At S o'clock thers was not a vacant seat in the auditorium. The gallery was packed with delegates. 'alternates and spectators. The heat was already intense. On the outside the crowd was even greater than within the coliseum. No attempt wa3 made in many in stances to restrict the crowd in any way, and by the time the chairman called the convention to order the hal! was filled to the danger line, and be yond. A scries of energetic thumps upon the presiding officer's table were given by Chairman' Clark at 8:03 o'clock in an endeavor to call the convention to order. The readin? clerk ordered the floor officers to clear the aisles. As Mr. Clark stood at his desk, Senator Daniel of Virginia, chairman of the resolutions committee, .made his way to his side with the copy of th? plat form in bis hand. "Without delay it was announced that the report of the committee would be received. Senator Daniel's exhaustion from his THE SOUR MOTOR COMPANY.

To the vast audience which faced him iie was bat a silent figure with moving lip.1.. Senator Daniels concluded riaiin? the platform at 8:55 o'clock. When, it was observed that ho was reuling, the convention brcke into cheering. 'THE PLATFORM The democratic paity cf the United States in national committee, assem bled, declares its devotion to the essen tial principles cf Cemocraiic lath. which brings U3 together in party com munion. Under them .local self-government and national unity ad prosperity Were alike established.

Rach has its rights, but the rights of labor are certainly no less 'vested," no. less "sacred," and no less "inalienable," than the rights of capital.

When any wa- TEMPE Shoes for less than get what you want Manager Shoe Department ter way like the Mississippi river Is of i--ufncicut importance to demand special aid of the government, such aid should be extended with a definite plan of continuous work until a permanent im provement is secured. We -oppose the republican policy or starving home development in orcier iu feed greed for conquest and appetite for national "prestige" and display of strength. ECONOMY OF ADMINISTRATION 1. Large re3uctions can easily ba made in the annual expenditures of the government without Impairing the effi ciency of any branch of the public service, and we shall insist upon the strictest economy and frugality com patible with a vigorous and efficient civil military and naval administration as the right of the people, too clear to be denied or withheld. 2. We favor honesty in the public service and the enforcement of hon esty In the public service and to that end a thorough legislative investiga tion of those executive departments of the government already known to reek with corruption, and the punishment of ascertained corruptionists. without fear or favor or regard to persons. The persistent and deliberate refusal of both the senate and house of represen tatives to permit such investigation to be made demonstrates that only by a change in the executive and in legisla-, tive departments can complete expose ure, punishment and conviction be ob- CONTRACTS WITH TRUSTS. We condemn the action of the repub lican party in congress in refusing to pichibit, the executive department from entering into contracts with con vleted trusts or unlawful combinations in restraint of inter-state trad?. We believe that one of the best methods of procuring economy and honesty in public service is to have public officials from the occupant of the White House down to the lowest of them, return as nearly as may be to Jeffersonian sim plicity, of living. EXECUTIVE USURPATION We favor the nomination and election of a nresidenr. imbued with the prlnc nles of the constitution, who will set his face sternly against executive usurp tion of legislative end judicial -func tions, whether that usurpation be veil ed under the guise of an executive con struction of existing laws or whe-the it takes lefuge in the tyrant's pi a o' necessity or .superior wisdom. IMPERIALISM We favor the preservation, so far as we can. of an open door for the world's commerce In) the Or ient, without ,arti- trary, unlimited, irresponsible and ab solute government anywhere within fur jurisdiction.

The?fj especial favorites of the government. have through trust method., been con verted into monopclie-E, thus bringing to an end domestic competition which was the only alleged cheek upon the extravagant profits made possible by the protective system. These indus trial combinations, by the financial as sistance they can give, now control the policy of the republican party. We denounce protection as the rob bery of the many to enrich the few. and we favor a tariff limited to the needs of the government economically administered, and so levied as not to discriminate against any industry, class or section, to the end that the Burdens of taxation Fhall be distribu ted as equally as possible. We favor a revision and a gradual reduction of the tariff by. the friends of the masses and cf the common wealth tnd not by friends of abu-ei, extortions and discriminations, keeping in view the ultimate ends of "equality of burdens," and "equality of opportu nities" and proper purpos? of raising revenue by taxation, to-wit, for the support of federal government in all Its integrity and virility, but in sim plicity. INTERSTATE COMMERCE We demand an enlargement of the powers of the interstate commerce commission, to the end that the traveli ng pjblic and the shippers of this country may have the prompt and ad.: quate relief for the abuses to which they are subjected in the matter of transportation. We demand a strict enforcement of existing civil and crim inal statutes against ail trusts, combin ations and monopolies, and we demand the enactment of such further legisla tion as may be neceasary to effectually suppress, ihem. Any trust or unlawful combination engaged in interstate commerce which is monopolizing any branch of business or production should not be permitted to transact business outside of the state of i'.s origin. Whenever it shall be established in any court of compe tent jurisdiction that sifch monopliza tion exists, such prohibition should be enforced ih-ough comprehensive laws to be enacted on subject. RECLAMATJON OF ARID LANDS. We congratulate our western citiaens upon the passage of a law known a9 the Ne-lar.ds irrigation act for the ir rirr.ition :nd reclamation of the arid lands of the west a measure frain-'J by a democrat, pased in the senate by a non-it irtisian vote and passed in thP house agv.Inst the opposition of almost all the republican leatlers by a vote, the majority of whK-h;was drnovratic. i Ave call attention to this great de mocratic measure,' broad and compre hensive as It Is, working autorroaticraiy throughout all tihie without further ac tion of congress, until the reclajnatio.i of ajl the lands in the arid west capable of reclamation ia accnpished,reserv inj? the land.-? .reclaimed - for noma seekers ia small tracts, and rigidly guarding aginst land monopoly, as an evidence of the policy of domestic de velopment contemplated by the demo cratic party, should it be placed in power. ISTHMIAN CANAL Democracy when entrusted with p3 wer will construct the Panama canal speedily, honestly and economically, thereby giving to our people what de mocrats have always contended for a great inter-oceanic canal, furnishing shorter and cheaper lines of transpor tation and broad and Ie9s trammeled trade relations with other peoples of the world. We pledge ourselves to insist upon just and lawful protection of our citi zens at home and abroad, and to use all proper measures to secure for them. whether native born or naturalized, ana witliout distinction of race or creed, equal protection of the laws and enjoyment of all the rights and privi leges open to them. under the covenants of our treaties of friendship and com merce; end If under existing treaties the right of travel and sojourn is de nied to American citizens or recogni tion is withheld from American pass ports by any ocuntries on the ground of race or creed we favor the begin ning of negotiations with the govern ments of such countries to secure by treaty the removal of these unjust discriminations. We demand that all over the worldx a duly authenticated passport issued by the government of the United Slates to an American citi zen shall be proof of the fact that ha is an American citizen and shall en title him to treatment due him as such. We favor the election of United States senators by the direct vote of the people. STATEHOOD FOR TERRITORIES We favor the admission of the ter ritories of Oklahoma and the Indian Territory. We also favor the immedi ate admission of Arizona and New Mexico as separate states and a terri torial government for Alaska and Por' to Rico. . v We hold that the officials appointed to administer the government of any territory, as well as the district of Alaska, should be bona fide residents at the time of their appointment of the territory or district in which their du ties are to be performed. Senator Daniels said: "Iam unanimously instructed by your committee on piatform to mcv.i the previous question on its adoption, and I now make that motion." It was adopted by :i viva voce vote, two or three delegates voting In the negative, and they,' apparently, in a mere- spirit of fun. Chairman Claik then put the motion to .adopt the re port, and' a viva voce vote carried it. NOMINATIONS BEGUN. "The clerk will now call the roll cf the states for the nomination of a can didate for president," shouted the chairman. A wild cry of delight came from the galleries, who seemed to think the whole thing was a show run for their entertainment. "Alabama," shrieked the . cler k. "Alabama yields to the Empire State of New York," called Delegate Rusel of Alabama, standing in his chair, one arm grasping the standard of his state. . "Martin W. Littleton, of New York. tock the stand amid ringing applause, to place Judge Parker of New York, in nomination. Mr. Littleton's manner of speaking is calm and deliberate and he uses beautiful gestures. His voicj is full, resonant and of a decidedly pleasing quality and could be heard further than that of any speaker who had preceded him, with the possible ex ception of Richard P. Hobson. Mr. Littleton was given closa' atten tion. Mr. Chairman,1 and gentlemen of the convention: We do not expect here that stupid peace which smells of chloroform. We do not wish that unctuous nuan- imlty which springs from the uneacn flicting emotions of a solitary man. We would not have our harmony in a single harness. We, too, love the st'r of a strenuous life: but we believe' in equal strenuousness for all, and special stren- ucusness for none. We do not derive our power from the seat3 of th mighty, but from the souls of the hum ble. We do not ask for insane agree ment springing from faithless fire, but rather outbursts of dissension isiu'ng trom robust freedom. We are not in executive session, but rather in com mittee of the whole. We were sent here by the people to select a candidate; we were not sent here by the candidate to notify the people. Our adversaries, by dwelling tender ly on the simplicity of the lamented McKinley, managed to endure for threi days the stremuosity of lioosevelt. "By recounting in affectionate terms thi achievements of the one, they evoked an enthusiasmi which they immediately credited to the other. Through tears that were shed for the noble dead they saw a larger "outline of the llTing. Driven by lash and lured by luck, they called on all the sacied dust to keep their spirits up.

" The toiler, turninir all his time and sinews to gain which other3 get, ! begins to- doubt that the government is just. The man of means, who puts It out In the active currents of trade and sees the peril of this doubt and the government's compromise with both, begins to feel that it is better hoardid than employed. Lincoln said In the sadness of his great soul "with malice toward none, with charity for all, with faith in tha right as God gives us the wisdom to see it." and Roosevelt said, in the glory cf his self contemplation, "tread softly softly and carry a big stick." Ana between these, t'.ie beginning and the ending cf repuniiean growtn, in timj ana temper, in all its wild descending flight; with, all they know and feel cf the country's questicn of their course, the republi cans yet claim every fruit of soil and sun. of brain and soul. When attention Is called to the econ omic, industrial and administrative vices resulting from their incompeten cy, they say. that after all there are some things which the all-wise provi dence Insisted upon doing without giv ing any particular reason for it. Gentlemen of the convention, beyond the exciting passions of war and thi distracting panics of peace, 'we meet to reason together for the well-being of our country and our party. No man Is greater than hi3 party, and no party is greater than its principles." There is no platform which can last for ever, unless it be made of abstract things Incapable of demonstration. The re cent past Is filled with a record cf oui disagreements. Many of us would change that past if It were within our power most of us would not but M $4 D WIGHT B. liiiARD Cntr and Ad ma 3tri.

Surely, as you gather here, wlt'n the present breaking upon your rapt ured vision and the past filling your heart with songs of praise and Joy, you are urged by every impulse and en treated by every recollection to forever sink the differences that distract and the tnuses that confuse, and, gathering afresh from this exhaustless headwaUp of our hope the spirit of fifty years of party faith, resclve.to restore our partr to its plrf:-e of Rower, and pride in the hearts and affections of our countrj men.

New York answers with a man who learnvd the simple lessons of democratic fii'-h in the furrowed field; who took 111 m with increasing strength to flie ibar and and finally honored them by his cxaltod station on the bench; a man through out his career from poverty, to paver, and never in fair weather or foul for sook the .standards of his party faith or deserted the colors of his command. The country called upon New York lor a democrat free from factional dispute, and New York answers with a man friendly, to all factions, but a favorite and" afraid of none; a man who will take counsel and courage of both but who w-11 take bitterness of neither a man who will not stir the hatred of the past nor share the acrimony of the pes ent, but who will lead us up toward the .future into a cloudless atmosphere of party peace.
