W. H. Brodhead,
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,
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
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
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 !
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
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
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. In state, county or
