CONNECTICUT DEMOCRATS. Nnnie Mayor Thayer for Governor Make Usual Charges ugnlnat H publicans. Hartford, Sept. 12. Mayor Charles F Thayer of Norwich was nominated foil governor to-day by the democratic Statu convention. The platform adopted an nounced that only Stato Issue should be considered In tho approaching campaign. . The republican administration of Stan affairs lb scored In these words. "We de clare the recent courso of tho Republican, party In tho State subversive of th prin ciples which lie nt tho foundation of de mocracy, because It hns substituted polit ical aristocracy for individual liberty. Tho republican organization Is more powerful than tho Republican party which Ii suc cessfully dictated to by a group of mnnlpulators who have only their rwu ends lu view. To correct thla evil we de clnre for the dlroct primary principal, the right to. nominate by petition, further amendment of tho corrupt practices law, In particular forbidding corporations to contribute to party funds and enactment of a law providing for tho registration of the lobby. The abolishment of thn wretched fee system of compensating public servants and tho substitution of a salary system, moro rigid supervision of public service corporations, and a re organisation of the railroad commission nrc demnnded in the platform. Another vlnnk says It Is for each lommunlty to decide ns to the adaptation of municipal, ownership of local utilities nnd tho Stato should formally, recognize that right. It' Is not n principal of gjnetal government but nu escape from the Intolerable con ditions Imposed by corporation mis management. Tho election of Fnlt"d States senators by tho people Is also de manded. The nominees for the othor offices tro Lieutenant-Governor, John M.
