W. H. Brodhead, Register. POPULIST PLATFORM. The following platform was adopted by the People's Party convention convened In Boise City, August 1, 1«M : The People's party of the State of Idaho In convention assembled hereby adopts the fol lowing resolutions as expressive of its convic tions : First- We endorse the national platform of the People's party, adopted at Omaha, July 4, 1892. Second—The People's party is a party of law and order. Its mission is to restore, as far as law can affect it, equality of opportunity in the race for life. It believes in the sentiment ex pressed in the Declaration of Independence that all men are by nature created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalien able rights among which are life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.'' It declares that human rights are more precious than vested and that all public wrongs shall be made yield to the demands of equal justice express ed through the peaceable and orderly use of the ballot. We know that through the ballot only can the people become powerful, therefore condemn ull acts of lawlessness or violence by whomsoever committed.and pledge ourselves to the people of the state that if they shall entrust us with the reins of state govern ment we will see to It that public order is served and peace and tranquility assnr the people. Third—We declare that the enforcement of law, no matter how important it may be, is only the beginning, not the end of good govern ment. We believe that the true statesmanship lies in making good laws far more than in en forcing bad ones. We therefore, demand such legislation, both state and national, as will crush all monopolies and relieve the people from all unjust discrimination by law. Fourth—Realizing that the financial question Is one of prominent importance to our people, we reiterate our demands for the free and un limited coinuge of silver and gold at the pres- ! ent legal ratio of 16 to 1. Fifth—That the future welfare of our state depends very largely upon its legislation on the ' subject of the appropriation and use of water | Irrigation, we therefore, pledge I party to the passage, at the ean- j lest opportunity, of a law protecting the people against unreasonable charges for the use of I water, and also creating water districts in the I arid regions of the state, and conferring upop süch districts the power to construct ditches and canals for irrigating purposes; and also E roviding for the condemnation and purchase y such districts of existing ditches and canals constructed for the sale, rental or distribution of water for agricultural uses. That such law should authorize, under proper safeguards, such water districts to issue bonds to construct or purchase such ditches bonds shall be a charge upou districts only. That the charges for the use of water should be no higher that sufilcieut to pay for the cost of maintenance and repair of such ditches and canals, and create a sinking fund to pay the in terest on such bonds are paid, the use of water should be free, except the necessary charge j for the maintenance and repair of such ditches l or canals. Sixth—We denounce the effort now being made by the Northern Pacific railroad company to force upon its employes contracts in the form of oaths and containing provisions which, if submitted to, would in the end reduce such employes to the condition of industrial slaves, we, therefore, demand state legislation that will not only declare all such contracts null and void but also inflict upon the officers and agents of any corporation soliciting, demanding or enforcing such contracts in Idaho such punish ment as will effectually teach them that neith er chattel nor industrial slavery will be toler ated in this state. We further denounce the f »ractice of mining corporations and companies n running or being interested in stores and boarding houses, either by themselves directly or through their officers and superintendents, and making it obligatory upon their employes to trade and deal in their stores or board in their boarding houses, and we demand such legislation as will effectually prevent such practices. Seventh—We demand state legislation by which the offices of slate mining inspector and state boiler inspector shall be filled "by persons elected by the qualified voters o» the state In stead of. as now. appointed by the governor. Eighth—We denounce the practice by per sons and corporations of black-listing laborers on account of their connection with organized ! labor. We demand such state legislation on } this subject as will make such practice a ftl- ; ony, and, in ease of a corporation, the infliction : of the additional penalty of the surrender of I the charter. Ninth—We demand a law prohibiting the en try of deficit ru y judgment of mortgages on real ! property, and that the time for redeeming such I property from forced sales under foreclosure or execution be extended from six months to two years. Tenth—We are opposed to the further sale of the school lands of the state and demand that, in lieu of such sales, such lands shall be leased to actual occupants and thereby create a per petual school fund without danger from loss. Eleventh—In view of the criminal conduct of both old parties in granting to corporations a monopoly of the people's money by which the property of the industrial classes is being rapidly absorbed by the usurers, we favor such an extension of the exemption law of the state as will save the homes of the people and assure to our wives and children a reasonable provis ion against poverty. We pledge our legislators to revise the homestead law so that all actual homesteads will be exempt from forced sale on execution without the necessity of a declara tion. Twelfth—We favor the submission to the people a constitutional amendment conferring upon the legislature the power to fix salaries of county officers at any figure between the maximum and minimum now established in the constitution, and demand that, when it can be done, the legislature shall reduce such sala ries to a figure commensurate with the poverty of the people. We also recommend state legis lation which shall require, under such regula tions as may be fixed by law. that all fees and commissions shall be paid to the county treas urer only and prohibited to be paid or received by any other county officer. Thirteenth -We reiterate the demands of the People's party representatives in our last state legislature for the elimination from our con stitution of what is known as the test oath and ! pledge our party to place before the voters of j the state at the earliest opportunity a const!- ' tutional amendment to that effect. Fourteenth—We demand that an amendment I to the constitution providing for equal suffrage i be submitted by the legislature lo the legal ; voters of the state. Fifteenth—We demand the passage of a new and just apportionment bill giving tail* repre sentation to all parts of the state. Sixteenth—We endorse the reform known as I the initiative and referendum. Seventeenth—The office of governor of a state ! wrongs, to We re to for of purposes People's the canals, which conferring, as it does, upon the incumbent many facilities for gratifying an insatiable am bition. this convention, therefore, Revolves, That the nominee to that office shall be ineligible to the office of United States senator and. if elected, shall not be eligible for any other office during his term. Eighteenth—From the very nature of their constitutions, popular governments must nec essarily be carried on through the agency of political parties. Party platforms thus be come the basis of all legislative and adminis trative measures, and their wilful violation is civil treason against republican institutions. The faithful keeping of party pledges by those entrusted with power is the highest political and moral duty due from a public officer to the people. We believe the time has come when it should also be made a legal duty.' And, there fore favor state legislation which, while guard ing the public officers in the state against false accusations and malicious prosecutions, will yet provide a legal method through tin courts by w hich the gross violation by any officer of the pledges made by him through the party platform upon which he was elected, may be punished by his prompt dismissal from office— we also favor the passage of a state law' which shall disqualify any person holding an office from being a delegate to any party convention. Ninteenth—We denounce the profuse expen iture of money heretofore practiced by both of the old parties in this state in. the conduct of j political campaigns. Such practice is corrupt j within Itself, debauches the political conscience of the voters, gives to the wealth an undue in fluence in elections and transforms the highest and most responsible duty of citizenship into a frantic scramble for the floating or venal vote. And we, therefore, favor the Passage of a Cor rupt Practices Act by tho legislature which suall 1. Specify the Items for which money may be spent by a candidate for ofllce or his party committee connections with elections. 2. Fix the amount which any candidate or committee shall be permitted to spend. S. Require each candidate and committee when the election is over to make out and tile In the public ofllce designated by law. a state ment verified under oath specifying the several amounts so spent and the items or such cx pendlture 4. Award the office to the minority candidate where he and his party committee have kept the law as against the majority candidate where such candidate or his party committee has brokeu the law'. Twentieth—The People's party welcomes In to Its ranks all members of either of the old parties who slncereiy accept the principles of Uie Omaha platform; bat we announce it as our final determination that we will not. now or at auy future time, form any fusion or coalition with any party whatever.
