WORK OF CONFERENCE
RINCINO ADDRESS ISSUED BY
An Invitation for All Good Citlien
Unite and Rescue the Government
From the Control of monopolies
Time to Act
The People's party conferenco called
to meet in St Louis Deo. 28 and 29,
was well attended. The call for a
meeting of the national committee in
cluded an invitation to members of the
Reform Press and others who felt dis
posed to confer with the committee.
When the meeting1 was called to order
by Chairman Taubeneck about 300
Populists were assembled to take part
ia the proceedings. The result of the
meeting was the issuing of an address
setting forth the situation and urging
the necessity of keeping up the fight
against the encroachments of organized
monopolies, The following is a full
text of the address:
"The national committee of the
People's party sends greetings to its
constituency throughout the United
'The rapid increase of our vote in
many parts of the Union and the start
ling events of the past two years vivid
ly justify both the existence and neces
sity for the People's party. The con
tention of the party that one of the
great needs of the country has been
and is an enlarged volume of circulat.
ing medium, is now practically con
ceded by all parties, and by the gov
ernment. The gold power and bank
ing interests are Insisting through the
President and his secretary of the
treasury that the enlarged issue of our
currency supply shall be given exclu
sively into the hands of the banks;
that silver shall be excluded, all treas
ury notes retired and that gold alone
shall be the legal tender, thus making
the monetary question an issue which
must lie met at once.
"Within the present year, tho cor
porations, grown arrogant because of
the vast possessions of wealth and the
exercise of unconstitutional powers,
have made war upon the people, and
induced the federal courts to exercise
in their interests unusual and arbitrary
powers, induced the invasion of the
states by federal troops, without the
request of either of the executives of
said states, or the legislatures thereof,
and are at this time, through a re
creant administration and a truculent
congress, attempting to clothe the rail
road corporations by means of a pool
ing bill with power to further and
more systematically rob, oppress and
plunder the people; and having already
deprived the people of access to the
silver mines of the country as an in
dependent source of money supply, are
now, in the interest of a banking
oligarchy, endeavoring to deprive
them of the right to have their gov
ernment, in the exercise of its con
stitutional power, to issue the money
of the nation and control its volume.
"In the opinion of your committee
these events are startling, subversive
of the liberties of the citizen, and de
structive of business and social se
curity; and adhering to the Omaha
platform in all its integrity, your com
mittee insists upon the restoration of
the coinage of gold and silver as it ex
isted prior to 1S73 at the rate of 10 to
1 without regard to the action of any
other nation, and that all paper money
shall be issued by the general govern
ment, without the intervention of
banks of issue, the same to be a full
"We also declare our implacable hos
tility to the further issue of interest,
"We denounce the pooling bill as a
move toward completing the monoply
of transportation, and demand that in
stead congress proceed to bring the
the railroads under the government
"The power given congress by the
constitution to provide for calling
forth the militia to execute the laws of
the Union, to surppress insurrections,
to repel invasions, does not warrant
the government in making use of s
standing army in aiding monopolies in
the oppression of the public and their
employes. When free men nnnheath
the sword, it should be to strike for
liberty, not for despotism or to uphold
privileged monopolies in the oppression
of the poor.
"We ask the people to forget all past
political differences aud unite with ns
in the common purpose to rescue the
government from the control of mon
opolists and concentrated wealth, to
limit the powers of perpetuation by
curtailing their privileges, and to se
cure the rights of free speech, a .free
press and trial by jury all rules, reg
ulations and judicial dictutin deroga
tion of either of the which are arbi
trary, nnconstitional and not to be
tolerated by free people.
"We recommend the immediate or
