SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON. Chablbs Tows. JarmaOH Comm. W. Va. TUE8DAT MORNING. JULY 10. 1900. Reo. W. Haines. - Editor and Proprietor. tl.50 In Advance; S3 if not Paid in Advance. Democratic Platform. Imperialism the Paramount Issue? Militarism Denounced?No Tariff for the Trusts?A Sfxteen-to One Plank?Sympathy for the Boers, Etc. " We, the representatives of the Demo cratic party of the United States, assem bled in national convention, on the anni versary ot the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, do reaffirm our faith in that immortal proclamation of the inalien able rights of man and our allegiance to the Constitution framed in harmony there with by the fathers of the Republic. We hold with the United States Supreme Court that the Declaration of Independ ence is the spirit of <jur government, of which the Constitution is the form and letter. "We declare again that all govern ments instituted among men derive their just powers from the consent of the gov-1 erned; that any government not based upon the consent of the governed is a ty ranny, and that to impose upon any peo-1 pie a government of force is to substitute the methods of imperialism for those of a republic. We hold that the Constitution follows the flag, and denounce the doc trine that an Executive or Congress, de riving their existence and their powers from the Constitution, can exercise lawful authority beyond it or in violation of it. We assert that no nation can long en dure half republic and half empire, and we warn the American people that impe rialism abroad will lead quickly and in evitably to despotism at home. PORTO RICAN LAW DENOUNCED. Believing in the.se fundamental prin ciples, we denounce the Porto Rican law, enacted bya Republican Congress against the protest and opposition of the Demo cratic minority, as a bold aud open viola tion of the nation's organic law and a fla grant brcacli of the natioual Rood faith, j It imposes upon the people of Porto Rico a government without their consent, and taxation without representation. It dis honors the American people by repudia ting a solemn pledge made in their behalf by the commanding general of our army, which the I'orto Ricans welcomed to a peaceful and unresisted occupation of their land. It doomed tb poverty and distress a people whose helplessness ap peals with peculiar force to our justice and magnanimity. " In this, the first act of its imperialistic program, the Republican party seeks to commit the United States to a colonial policy, inconsistent with republican insti tutions and condemned by the Supreme Court in numerous decisions. CUBA AND THE PHILIPPINES. " We demand the prompt and honest iulfillment of our pledge to the Cuban people and the world that the United States has no disposition nor intention to exercise sovereignty, jurisdiction or con trol over the Island of Cuba except for its pacification. The war ended nearly two years ago, profound peace reigns over all the island, and still the Adminis tration keeps the government of the is land from its people, while Republican carpet-bag officials plunder its revenues and exploit the colonial theory, to the dis grace of the American people. "Wecondemn and denounce the Philip pine policy of thepresent Administration. It has involved the Republic in unneces sary war, sacrificed the lives ot many of our noblest sons aud placed the United States, previously known and applauded throughout the world at the champion of freedom, in the false and un-American po sition of crushing with military force the efforts of our former allies to achieve lib erty and self-government. The Filipinos cannot be citizens without endangering our civilization ; they cannot be subjects without imperiling our form of govern ment. and as we are not willing to sur render our civilization or to convert the Republic into an empire, we favor an immediate declaration, of the nation s purpose to give the Filipinos, first, a stable form of government; second, in dependence. and third, protection from outside interference, such as has been given for nearly a century to the repub lics of Central and South America. "The greedy commercialism which dic tated the Philippine policy of the Repub lican Administration attempts to justify it with the plea that it will pay, but even this sordid and unworthy plea fails when brought to the test of facts The war of criminal aggression against the Filipinos, entailing an annual expense of manv mil lions. has already cost more than any pos sible profit that could accrue from the en tire Philippine trade for years to come. Furthermore, when trade is extended at the expense of liberty the price, is always too high. FOR KXPANSION, NOT IMPERIALISM. "We are not opposed to territorial ex pansion when it takes in desirable terri tory which can be erected into States in the Union and whose people are willing and fit to become American citizens. We favofc expansion by every peaceful and legitimate means. But we are unalterably opposed to seizing or purchasing distant islands to be governed outside the Consti tution and whose people can never be come citizens. "We are in favor of extending the Re public's influence among tHe nations, but believe that influence should be extended not by force and violence, but through the pursuasive power of a high and hon orable example. "THE PARAMOUNT .ISSUE." The importance of other questions now pending before the American people is no wise diminished and the Democratic party takes no backward step from its position on them, but the burning isse of imperialism growing out of the Spanish War involves the very existence of the Republic and the destruction of our free institutions. We regard it as the para mount issue of the campaign. "The declaration in the Republican platform adopted at the Philadelphia Con vention held in June, 1900, that the Re publican party 'steadfastly adheres to the policy announced in the Monroe doctrine' is manifestly insincere and deceptive. This profession is contradicted by the , avowed policy of that party, in opposition I to the spirit ot the Monroe doctrine, to acquire and hold sovereignty over large areas of territory and large numbers of people in the Eastern Hemisphere. We insist on the strict maintenance of the Monroe doctrine in all its integrity, both in letter aud in spirit, as neccessary to prevent the extension of European au thority on this continent and as essential to our supremacy in American affairs. At the same time we declare that no American people shall ever be held by force in unwilling subjection to European authority. militarism denounced. " Weoppose militarism. It means con quests abroad and intimidation and op pression at home. It means the strong arm which has ever been fatal to free in stitutions. It is ivhat.mililonsof our citi zens have (led from in Europe. It will impose upon our peace-loving people a large standing army and unnecessary burden of taxation aud will be a constant menace to their "liberties A small stand ing army and a well-disciplined State militia are amply sufficient in time of peace. This Republic has no place for a vast military service and conscription. " In time of danger the volunteer sol dier is his country.s best defender. The National Guard of the United States should ever be cherished in the patriotic hearts of a free people. Such organiza tions are ever an element of strength and safety, tor the first time in our history and coevil with the Philippine conquest has there been a wholesale departure from our time-honored and approved sys tem of volunteer organization. We de nounce it as un-American, un-Democratic and un-Republican and as a subversion of the ancient and fixed" principles of a free people. RKMKDY FOR TRUSTS. " Private monopolies are indefensible and intolerable. They destroy competi tion, control the price of all material and of the finished product, thus robbing both producer and consumer. They lessen the employment of labor and arbitrarily fix the terms and conditions thereof and deprive individual energy and small cap ital of their opportunity for betterment. 1 hey are the most efficient means yet devised tor appropriating the fruits of in dustry to the benefit ot the few at the ex pense of the many, and unless their in satiate greed is checked all wealth will be aggregated in a few hands and the Republic destroyed. -The dishonest palterinK with the trust evil by the Republican party in (State and national platforms is conclusive proof of the truth of the charge that trusts are the legit imate product ot Republican policies, that they are fostered by Republican laws and that they are protected by the Republican Administration for campaign subscriptions and political support. "We pledge the Democratic party to an unceasing warfare in nation, State and city against private monopoly in every form. Existi ng la ws agai nst trusts must be enforced and more stringent ones must be enacted providing for publicity as to the affairs of corporations engaged in interstate com merce, requiring all corporations to show, before doing business outside the State, of their origin, that they have no water in their stock and that they have not attempt ed, and are not attempting, to monopolize any branch of business or the production of any articles of merchandise, and the whole constitutional power of Congress over inter state commerce, the mails and all modes of interstate communication Bhall be exercised by the enactment of comprehensive laws upon the subject of trusts [Concluded on 4th page.] Women are Like FlAU/DrC Healthy and strong I IUttCI they blossom and bloom.
