'DEMOCRATIC "PLATFORM, The Democratlo party of the United States, In national convontlon assembled, deolarea lu devotion to tlia essential principles of tho Demoerntlo faith which brines us together In parly communion. Under them, local self-government and national unity and prosperity were alike established. They underlaid our Independ ence the structure of our free republic and every Democratlo extonslon from Louisiana to California and Texas to Ore run, which preserved faithfully In alt tho states the tie between taxation and rep resentation. They yet Inspire the masses of our people, guarding Jealously their rights and liberties nnd cherishing their fraternity, peace nnd orderly develop ment. They remind us of our duties and responsibilities an citizens and Impress upon us. particularly at this time, the ne cessity of reform. The application of these fundamental principle to the living tssurs of the day Is the first step townrd tho as ured pence, safety and proirrcas of our nation. Freedom of tho press, ot con science and of speech, equnllty beforo the law of nil cltlicns; tho right of trial by lury: freedom of the person defended by the writ of hnbcaa corpus: liberty of per lonal contract tintmmmeled by sumptu ary laws; tho supr nncy of tho lvll over military authority, a well disciplined mi Utla: the separation of church nnd Itato: economy In expenditures; low laxes. that labor may bo lightly btir flened: tho prompt nnd snered flulflll- ment of publlo nnd private obliga tions: fidelity to treaties; pence nnd friendship with nil nations. cntnngllng nl llances with none; nbsolute ncqulesccnco In the will of tho majority, the vital prin ciple of republics theso nro doctrines which Democracy has established ns proverbs of the nation, nnd thoy should be constantly enforced. Wo favor the enactment nnd adminis tration of laws giving labor and capital mpnrtlally their Just rights. Capital nnd labor ought not to be enemies. Each is necessary to tho other. Each has Its fights, but tho rights of labor nre cer tainly no less "vested," no less "sacred" and on less "Inalienable" than the rights of capital. Constitutional guarantees are violated whenever nny citizen Is denied the right to labor, ncqulro nnd enjoy property, or reside where Interest or Inclination may determine. Any donlal thereof by Indi viduals or organizations of government ihould bo summarily rebuked and pun ished. We deny the right of any executive to Disregard or suspend any constitutional privilege or limitation. Obedience to the laws and respect for their requirements are alike the supreme duty of the cltl len and the ofnclal. The military should be used only to mprort and mntntaln tho lnw. We un- Runllfledty condemn Its employment for le summnry banishment of citizens fflthout trial, or for the control of elec tions. We approve the measure which passed the United States senate In 1SDS, but Which a Republican congress hns ever llnce refused to enact, relating to con tempts In federal courts nnd providing 'for trial by Jury In cases of Indirect con tempt. We favor liberal appropriations for the earo nnd Improvement of tho waterways of tho country When nny waterway 'llko the Mississippi river la of sufllclent Importanco to demnnd special aid of the Covernment, such aid should be extended with a definite plan of continuous work until permanent Improvement Is secured. Wa oppose the Republican policy of ttarvlng home development In order to feed the greed for conquest nnd tho ap petlto for national "prestige" and dis play of strength. Large reductions can readily be mado In tho annual expenditures of tho government without Impairing the effici ency of any branch of tho publlo service and wo shall Insist upon tho strictest economy and frugality compatible with vigorous and effective civil, military and navnl administration an a right of tho pcoplo too clear to be denied or withheld. Wo favor honesty In the publlo service, tho enforcement of honesty In tho publlo service, nnd to thnt end a thorough ex ecutive Investigation of those depart ments of tho government already known to teem with corruption, ns well as other depiirtmenls suspected of harboring cor ruption nnd punishment of nsccrtnlned corruptlonlsts without fear or favor or regard to persons. Tho persistent nnd de liberate refusal of both tho senato nnd houso of representatives to permit such suggestion to bo made demonstrates that only by a chnngo In tho executive and In tho legislative departments can com- Blete exposure, punishment and convlo on bo obtained. Wo condemn tho nction of the Repub lican party In congress In refusing to prohibit Its executive departments from entering Into contracts with convicted trusts or unlawful combinations In re straint of Interstate trade. Wo have ono of the best methods of procuring econ omy and honesty In tho publlo service, nnd that Is to havo public officials, from tho occupant of tho Whlto House down to tho lowest of them, return ns nearly &n may be to Jeftcrsonlnn simplicity of ving. Wo favor tho nomination and election f n president Imbued with the principles the constitution, who will sot his face itornly against executive usurpation of leglslnttvo and Judicial functions. Whether that usurpation be veiled under tho gulso of executive construction of xlstlng laws, or whether It takes refuge in tho tyrnnt's plans of necessity or su perior wisdom. Wo favor tho preservation, so far as wo tan, of an open door for tho world's com merce In the Orient without unnecessary mtnnglement In Oriental nnd European Hffnlrs, and without arbitrary, unlimited. Irresponsible and absolutn government anywhere within our Jurisdiction. Wo op pose as fervently as did Oeorge Wash Ington himself nn Indefinite. Irresponsible, discretionary and vague absolutism, and a policy of colonial exploitation, no matter where or by whom exercised: we believe, with Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, that no government has a right to make ono set of laws for those at home" and another and a different set of laws, absolute In their character, for those "In lhe colonies." All men un der the Amerlcnn flag are entitled to tho protection of the Institutions whose em blem tha flag Is; If they nre Inherently nt to be members of tho Amer ican body politic. Wherever there may exist a people Incapable of being roverned upon American laws under the Amerlcnn constitution, the territory or people ought not to bo part of the Amer ican domain. We Insist that we ought to do for tho Filipinos what we have done already for the Cubans, and It Is our duty to make that promise now. nnd. upon suitable gunrnntoes of .Protection to citizens of our own nnd other countries resident there nt tho time of our with drawal set tho Filipino people upon their feet? free and Independent to work out their own destiny.

If success ful, lead to entanglements from which It will be difficult to escape. Tho Democratlo party has been and will contlnuo to be tho consistent oppo nent of that class of tariff legislation by which certain Interests have been permitted through congressional favor to draw a heavy tribute from the American Drinkers Had Strong Heads.

Wo denonnce protection as a robbery of the many to enrich tho few and we favor a tariff limited to the necessities of the government economically adminis tered, nnd so levied as not to dlscrlml nato against any Industry, class or sec tion, to tho end thnt the burdens of tax ation shall be distributed as equally a possible. We favor a revision nnd a gradual reduc tion of tho tariff by tho friends of tho masses and for the commonwealth, and not by tho friends of Its abuses, Its ex tortions nnd Its discriminations, keeping In view the ultlmnto end of "equality of burdens and equality of opportunities," nnd tha exccutlonnl purpose of raising a rcvenuo by taxation, to-wlt: The support of the fedcrnl government In nil lis In tegrity nnd virility, but In Flmpllclty. Wo recognize that tho gigantic trusts nnd combinations designed to cimlilu cap ital to secure moro than Its Just share of the Joint products of capital nnd labor, and which have been fostered and pro moted under Republican rule, nre a men nco to beneficial competition and nn ob stacle to permanent business prosperity. A prlvnto monopoly Is lndefenslblo and intolerable. Individual equality ot uppot (unity and free competition aro essential to n healthy and permanent commercial pros perity; nnd nny trust, combination Or monopoly tending to destroy these by controlling production, restricting com petition or fixing prices, should ba pro nlblted nnd punished by law. We especi ally denounce rebates and discrimination by the transportation companies as tha most potent agency In promoting and strengthening theso unlawful conspira cies against trade. We demand an enlargement of the pow ers ot tha Interstate commerce commis sion to the end that the traveling publlo and shippers of this country may have prompt and ndequate relief for the abuse to which they aro subjected to In tha matter of transportations. Wo demand a strict enforcement of x Istlng civil and criminal statutes against all such trusts, combination and mo nopolies, nnd we demand tha enactment of such further legislation as may b necessary to effectually suppress them. Any trust or unlawful combination en gaged In interstate commerce which Is monopolizing nny brnnch of business or production should not be permitted to transact business outside of the state of Its origin. Whenever It shall be estab lished lu any court of competent Jurisdic tion that such monopolization exUts such prohibition should be enforced through comprehen-lvo laws to be enacted on the subject Wo congratulate our western citizens upon tho passngo of the measure known ns tho Newland Irrtgntlon act for tha ir rigation nnd reclamation of arid lands of tho west a mensuro framed by a Demo crat, passed In the senato by a non-partisan voto and passed In tho house against the opposition of almost all tho Republi can leaders by a vote, tho majority of which was Democratic. Wo call attention to this great Democratic measure, broad and comprehensive as It Is, working auto matically throughout all tlmo without further action of congress, until the re clamation of all the lands In the arid west capable of reclamation Is accom plished, reserving the Innds reclaimed for homeseekers In small tracts, and rigidly guarding against land monopoly, ns an evidence of tha policy of domestlo development contemplated by tho Demo cratlo party, Bhould It be placed In power. Tho Democracy, when entrusted with power, will construot tho Tanama canal speedily, honestly and economically, thereby giving to our people whnt Dem ocrats havo always contended for a grent Inter-occnnlc cannl, furnishing shorter nnd cheaper lines of transporta tion and broader nnd less trammeled trado relations with tho othur peoples of tho world. We pledge ourselves to Insist upon tho Just nnd lawful protection of our citizens nt home nnd abroad, and to use all prop er measures to secure for them, whether native born or naturalized, and without distinction of race or creed the equal protection of laws nnd tho enjoyment of all rights and privileges open to them un der tho covenants of our treaties of friendship and commerce; and If under oxlstlng trcntlos tho right of travel and sojourn Is denied to Amerlatn citizens or recognition is withheld from American passports by any countries on the ground of race or creed, to favor the beginning of negotiations with tho governments of such countries to securo by treaty the re moval of these unjust discriminations. We demnnd that all over the world a duly authenticated passport Issued by the government of tho United Btntos to an American citizen shall bo proof of the fact that he Is an American citizen and shall entitle him to tho troatment due him as such.

We denounce the ship subsidy bill re cently passed by the United States senate an an Iniquitous appropriation of public funds for private purposes and a waste ful, Illogical and useless attempt to over come by subsidy obstructions raised by Republican legislation to the growth and development of American commerce on the sea. We favor tho upbuilding of n merchant marine without now or addi tional burdens upon tho peoplo and with out bounties from the publlq treasury. We favor liberal trado arrangements with Canada and with tha peoples of other countries where they can be en tered Into with benefit to American agri culture, manufactures, mining or com merce.
