U'liHitKAf, The coming election in simp- ?
ly a contest between tin-- Democratic and
Republican parties (or supremacy in the |
Country, anil
WiiKitKAf, The Democratic party liasev-'
er sought to preserve the constitutional1
rights and privileges of the people, and ban i
legislated always lor the beat intoruita and
tubstantial prosperity of all classes, tbere
forn
JtmAvrd, That the Democrats of Mason
county, in convention assembled, declare
their faith in and adherence to the princi
ple* of their party, and believe it to be the
only organization i><Mt>ossing the power and
intetjrity to rescu e the general government
from fraud and oppression in iiigli places
and to siiutch our country from the threat
ening frowns of imperialism.
Hivdrnl, That in our opinion there are
principles of free government Involved in
the approaching elections that over-ride
in their importance all questions of intern
al |>olicy, and that to insure a perpetuity
of tho blessings of liberty and good gov
ernment, the highest duty devolving upon
American citizens, is the preservation of
our republic, by means of a peaceful and
unawed ballot.
Rfiolvd, Also in the language of the Dem
ocratic party of the eastern Pan Handle of
this State, "That wo are prepared to enter
the contest of 1880, National and State, in
the full confidence of victory, with the
principles?free elections; the supremacy
of tho civil over the military power; integ
rity and ability in our public agents; a
sound but ample currency: tho reserved
rights of the State, and death to fraud, cor
ruption, subsidies, monopolies and Imper
ialism, proudly emblaioned upon our ban
ners."
llaolved, That we are in favor of a thor
ough and cfllcient law providing for the
8tate inspection of mines.
liaolrtd, That we cordially invite all
those who have been misled in leaving the
Democratic party, and all Republicans who
believe that their party lins served its day
of usclfulness, to vote now with the old
and true Democratic party.
The Pint for ni.
The following is the platform of
principles adopted by the Democrats
of Went Virginia, at their Stute Con
vention, held at Marlinsburg, July
28th, 1880:
1. The Democratic party in con
vention assembled, heartily endorses
and approves tlie^ilatform and prin
ciples adopted by the National Dem
ocratic Convention, and reallirms its
allogianco to the time-honored princi
ples of the party,
2. We recognize with pleasure the
fidelity of the various officials of tho
State in the administration of the
duties and trust imposed in them by
tho law, and with pride point to the
peace, quiet and general prosperity
of the State. The promptness with
which the public revenues have been
collected and paid into the treasury,
the economy and efficiency with
which our public institutions have
been managed are some of the reasons
why Domocratic rule should be con
tinued in West Virginia.
3. Mindful of the traditions of the
party and tho dangor to be appre
hended from the growing power and
influence of monopolies wo declare
that the Democratic party is now, as
it has evor been, the friend of tiie
people and tho foe of all monopolies;
that we are opposod to any systems
of legislation that tends to foster tho
power of such monopolies, and par
ticularly to that species of legislation
that discriminates in favor of rail
road corporations and against the
people.
4. Wo recognizo the proposed
amendments to the Constitution as
presenting questions above and out
side of party politics, and therefore
remit them to tho embraced judg
ment of tho peoplo.
The following additional resolu
tions were also reported by the com
mittee:
Resolved, That we regard the prac
tice ofaccreditingany Democrats who
may be present at conventions as del
egates, as horctoforo, as opening the
door to fraud and unfairness, and a
mothod which is corrupt and corrupt
ting, and recommend tho State Exec
utive Committee to tako steps to pre
vent the same in the future.
Resolved, That in the opinion of
this convention, the practice so com
mon in tho State whoreby county
delegates to State and district con
ventions are instructed to cast th^
votes of the county for particular can
didates, is open to many serious ob
jections in that it gives rise to fraud
and unfair dealing; to conventions
packed in the intorest of particular
parties; deprives opposing candidates
of the representatives to which they
would be otherwise entitled: produces
complaint and dissatisfaction; disor
ganizes tho party and te'uds to the
defeat of its candidates; that we con
demn this practice ns being at war
with tho usages, principles and best
interests of the Democratic party and
should bo discontinued by all who
have its success at heart.
