VOL. V. No. 5. WEAVER AND FIELD. THE PRESIDENTIAL TICKET NAMED BY THE PEOPLE'S PARTY. Judge Gresham Refused to Allow His Name to Go Before the Convention as a Candidate—The Wildest Enthusiasm Over the Platform Adopted. OMAHA, July s.—General James B. Woavor was nominated for president by tho convention of the People's party, and General James G. Field, of Virginia, was nominated for the vice presidency. Judge Gresham absolutely refused again to allow bis name to be presented. It was a day of high enthusiasm, sharp contests and great excitement among the delegates. Time and again did the situation change radically as re i garde candidates, au< * extremes J of temper that , found manifesta- I SjPSWu f/i tion in the con- vention hall were aa the blast as the JSr nor * , k wind and f/ll\ the breath of the '/ /' desert. Never was a groat convention GENERAL WEAVER. TORN BY 80 MANY conflicting emotions; and disciplined and inexperienced in the affairs of national holi days, the delegates stood the tests put upon them remarkably well. THE PROCEEDINGS. A Scene of the Wildest Enthusiasm Over the Platform. OMAHA, July s.—The People's party con vention settled down into a dead calm when Cater, of California, was presented and commenced to road the preamble and platform. The enthusiasm increased ten fold when the speaker read a declaration to the effect that the time had come when the railroads mußt run the people or the people run the railroads, and it was a couple of minutes before order could bo restored sufficiently for the reader to proceed. Branch, of Georgia, moved the adoption of tho proamble, and it was adopted by a rising vote, with more cheering. Cater now gave way to Branch, who proceeded to road the platform proper. Cries of "Amen" and cheers greeted the plank in favor of governmental control of ull telegraph and telephone systems, and were repeated when the reading was fin ished. Then the entire preamble and plat form were put to another vote and adopted by acclamation, amid another scene of bois terous enthusiasm. The Platform. Tho following is the platform, exclusive of the preamble, which is a long argument of the causes which led up to the formation of the party: . Wo declare, therefore- First—That the union of the labor forces of tho United States this day consummated shall bo permanent and perpetual—may its spirit enter into all hearts for the salvation of tho re public and the uplifting of mankind. Second—Wealth belongs to him who creates it, and ovory dollar taken from industry without an equivalent is robbery. "If any inan will not work, neither shall he oat." The inter ests of rural and civic labor are the same, their enemies aro identical. Third—Wo bolleve the time has come when tho railroad corporations will either own the people or the people must own tho railroads, and should tho government enter upon the work of owning and managing any or all railroads, we should favor an amendment to the constitution by which all persons engaged in tho government service shall be placed under a civil service regulation of the most rigid character, so as to prevent the in crease of tho power of the national adminis tration by the use of such additional govern ment employees. Wo domand A national currency, safe, sound and flexible, issued by the general government only, a full legal tender for ull debts, public and privato, and that without tho use of bank ing corporations, u Just, equitable and offlciont means of distribution, diroct to tho people, at a tax not to excood 2 per cent, per annum, to bo provided as set forth in tho subtreasury plan of tho Farmers' Alliance, or some better Bystem; also by payments in discharge of its obligations for public improvements. We demand froo and unlimited coinage of silver and gold at the present legal ratir of 16 to 1. We domand that tho amount of tho circulat ing medium be speedily increased to not loss than fifty dollars per capita. Wo domand a graduated incomo tax. Wo believe that tho moneys of the country Should bo kept as much as possible in the hands of the pooplo, and hence we demand that all national and state rovonuos shall be limitod to tho necessary expenses, economically and hon ostly administered. We demand that postal savings banks be es tablished by the government for the safe de posit of the earnings of the people and to facili tate exchange. Transportation being a moans of exoliango and a public necessity, the government should own and operate the railroads in tho interest of the people. Tho telegram and telephone, like tho post, office system, being a necessity for the trans, mission of news, should be owned and operated by the government in the interest of the people. The land, including all tho natural sources of wealth, is the heritage of all the people and should not be monopolized for speculative pur poses, and alien ownership of land should be prohibited. All land now held by railroads and other corporations in excess of their ac tual needs aud all lands owned by aliens Bhould be reclaimed by tho government and held for actual settlers only. The Resolutions. Whoroas, Other questions have been present ed for our consideration, we hereby submit the following, not as a part of the platform of tho People s party, but as resolutions expressive of tho sentiment of this convention: Resolved, That we demand a free ballot and a fair count in all olections, and pledge our selves to secure it to every legal voter without federal intervention through the adoption of tho states of the unporverted Australian or secret ballot system. Resolved, That the revenue derived from a graduated lucome tax should be applied to the reduction of the burden of taxatlou now rest ing upon tho domestic industries of this coun- Resolved, That wo pledge our support to fair and liberal pensions to ex-Union soldiers and sailors. Resolved, That we condemn the fallacy of protecting American labor under the present system, which opens our ports to the pauper and criminal classes of the world and crowds out our wage earners: and we denouuce the present Ineffective laws against contract labor, and demand the furthor restriction of undesir able immigration. Resolved, That we cordially sympathize with the efforts of organized workingmen to shorten the hours of labor, and demand a rigid enforce ment of the existing eight hour law on govern ment work and ask that a penalty clause be added to the said law. Resolved, That we regard the maintenance of a large standing army of mercenaries, known as the Pinkerton system, as a menace to our liberties and we demand its abolition, and we condemn the recent invasion of the territory of Wyoming by the hired assassins of plutocracy, ••listed by federal officials. Resolved, That we commend to the favor, able consideration of the people and to the re form press the legislative system known as the lhltiatlve and referendum. Resolved, That we favor a constitutional provision limiting the offices of president and vice president to one term and providing for the election of senators of the United Btates by a direct vote of the people. Resolved, That we oppose any subsidy or national aid to any private corporation for any lJurpose.J When the convention reassembled the official news that Gresham had given a final and absolute refusal acted like a wet blank et, and as one of Powderly's lioutenanta expressed it, "They felt themselves between the devil and the deep sea." Weaver Nominated. When finally the regular order of busi ness, that of calling the roll of states for nomination of candidates for the presi dency, was reached, Alabama was called and F. C. Manning named General J. B. Weaver, of lowa. Colorado yielded her privilege to Colonel S. F. Norton, of Illinois, who named Senator J. H. Kyle, of South Dakota. This name was received with slight applause. Connecticut, through Dele gate Baldwin, placed in nomination General Fields, of Virginia. Harvey, of Florida, seconded Weaver's nomination, and Mr. Wimberley, of Georgia, supported that of Senator Kyle. S. H. Basbor, pastor of the Progressive church at Milledgeville, Ills., nominated Senator C. H. Vau Wyck, of Nebraska. A vote was then taken and the ballot re sulted: Weaver, 995; Kyle, 275; scatter ing, 2. After the ballot S. F. Norton moved that the nomination bo made unanimous. Schill ing, of Wisconsin, seconded the motion, which was carried. The nomination was made unanimous, and the delegates rose to their feet and gave three cheers. A Texas delegate moved an adjournment, but the chair ordered the call of the roll for nominations for vice president. At la. m. the weary round of five minutes speeches was resumed, with Alabama Delegate Gather naming Ben Terrell, of Texas. Beverly, of Virginia, named an ex-Con federate to stand by Weaver's side, General James G. Field, of Virginia. General Field was nominated for vice-president on the first ballot, the vote standing: Field, 733; Terrell, 554. The convention then ap pointed a national committee and ad journed. CAMPBELL TO RESIGN. Business Affairs Compel] Him to Resign from the Republican Chairmanship. WASHINGTON, July 6.—Chairman Camp bell, of the national Republican committee, has arrived in the city from Chicago. Ho was met at the depot by Mr. Micheuer, the president's personal friend. The two gen tlemen immediately took a carriage for the Arlington hotel. Mr. Campbell did not register, but went directly to the room of Commissioner of the Land Office Carter, who is also secretary of the national Repub lican committoe, where Mr. Carter, Mr. Micheuer and Mr. Campbell held a consulta tion lasting about a half hour. They after ward left the hotel together, going directly to the White House, and were in confer ence for four hours with the president, Sec retary Elkinß, ex-Senator Spooner, of Wis consin, and Secretary Rusk. After this con ference Mr. Cumpbell gave out the follow ing statement: "When I was elected chairman of the na tional committee it was with the distinct understanding that my business engage ments then pending might render it impos sible for me to act in that capacity. This contingency was fully understood by the committee and others directly interested. Since the adjournment of the committee I have been unable to adjust my affairs so as to render it practicable for me to act as chairman; and I therefore, as I reserved the right to do, announce that I will not so act. "Under the authority vested in me by the national committoe I will probably an nounce the executive committee within the next few days, and that committee will meet at an early date. At that meeting I will formally tender my resignation and my successor will be then elected. "My successor will be chosen by the ex ecutive committee as authorized by resolu tion adopted by the national committee." Hill Counsels Loyalty. NEW YORK, July s.—The chief feature of the celebration of Independence Day in this city was the 110 th annual celebration by the Society of Tammany or Columbian Or der at Tammany Hall. The following letter from Senator Hill was read: Hon. Thomas F. Gilroy and others, committoe: DEAR SlßS—Engagements made prior to tho receipt of your lottor prevont my acceptance of the invitation to be with the Tammany so ciety on the coming Fourth of July. This year's celebration of tho anniversary of our country's independence, preceding as it does an important political contest involving the supremacy of tho ossentiai principles of our free government, may appropriately be made the occasion of tho renowul of our faith in those cherished principles which have been for so many years faithfully championed by the intrepid Democracy of Tammany Hall. Our courso at the present time is plain. The Democracy of New York in the approaching struggle should present a solid front to tho common enemy. Loyalty to Democratic prin ciples and regularly uominated candidates is the supremo duty of the hour. 1 remain your fellow citizen, DAVID B. HILL. CONGRATULATIONS.
