to uphold said decision and to defend
the Constitution iijrjtinsi alterations or
aineiiilineiiU inleiided to deprive the
the people of any rights or privilege
conferred by that instrument. We de
mand the issue of such moucv in sulli-
cieut iiiantilies to supply the aelualilc-
niHiins of trade and comnieree in nc
conlatiee with the increase of popula
tion and (he development of our indus
tries, V e demand I he suhst Hut ion id
greenbacks for national bank notes,
and the prompt paMiicut of the public
debt: we want the money tbat saved
our country in time of war, and which
lias given it prosperity and happiness
!u peace. We condemn the retirement
f fractional currency and small de
nominations of greenbacks .mil demand
their restoration. We demand the is
sue of tiie iioardsof money now locked
up in the United States Treasury by ap
pking thcin to the payment of the pub
lic debt now due.
2, We denounce as dangerous to our
republican institutions ilmsc methods
und policies of tiie Democratic and Re
publican parlies which have sanctioned
i' permitted the establishment of land,
I liiroad, money nnd oilier giganticcor
j orate monopolies, and we demand
such governmental action as may be
necessary to take from such nionopolirs
tl'e powers which they have corruptly
and iinjii-tly usurped, and restore thcin
to the people to whom they belong.
:. 'i'lic public lands being the natu
ral itihcr'.t;mce of the IM'miiIc, we de
nounce thai policy which has granted
to corporation wist tract-of lauds, ami
we demand that immediate and vigor
ous measures betaken to reclaim from
such corporations for the people's use
and benctitall such laud grants as have
b"en forfeited by reason of non-fitltill-nicnt
of contract, or (hat may have been
wrongfully acipiircd by corrupt legisla
tion, and that such reclaimed lands nnd
oilier public domain lie henceforth held
a; a sacred trust, to be granted only t
liciual settlers in limited miantities: nud
v- demand that alien owner-hip ol laud
individual or corporalu shall be prol.ib

I. We dctmind congressional ri-iru
l'Hion of interstate commerce. We de
nounce "pooling.' stuck watering, and
ili-criminalion iu rates ami charges.
a;i that Congress shall correct tiiesc
a'.cises even, if neeessarv, bv tiie eon-
".ruction of national railroads. We al
ro demand Ihe establishment of a gov-eiaoi'-ntal
postal telegraph syso-m.
.". All private property, nil forms of
money and obligations to pay money
should bear their just proportion of
public taxes. Wc demand a graduated
i -oine tax.
(i. We demand an amelioration ot
the condition of labor by enforcing san
itary laws in industrial establishments,
by the abolition of the convict labor
h ooni. by the rigid inspection of mines
und factories, by a reduction of the
hours of labor in industrial cstahlish
iiciits, bv fostering educational institu
tions anil by abnlisliingehild-labor.
7. We condemn all iinporiatious of
ei;Jixci.-il labor, made w ith a , iew of
reihc.atig to starvation wages the work
in:;' men of this country, and demand
Jaivs for it prevention.
:s. We insist upon a constitutional
amendment reducing the terms of I'nil
C'l States senators one-half, nnd making
them elective direclU by the people; al
so making tin; l'resideiit ineligible to
re-elect ion.
!). Wo demand such rules for the
government of Congress as shall place
ail representatives of the people upon
mi cipial footing' and take away from
committees a veto power greater than
that of rrc.sidcut.
10. The question as to the amount of
duties to be levied upon various arti
cles oi import, ha lieen agitated, unar
med over, and has divided coiumuui
ties tor nearly a hundred years, it is
not now, and never will be settled, mi-
l-.'s.s by the abolition of indirect taxation.
It is a convenient issue, always raised
when the people are excited over abuses
in their midst. V lute wc favor n wise
revision of the tarill laws with a vicwol
raising revenue from luxuries rather

economic ipiestion, its importance is in

His Speech In Which He Tells Why
He Is a Delegate to ft Demo

night a crowd, estimated by the associ

and by Ihe special reporter of the l'ost-
Dispatch at twenty-five thousand had
assembled in the streets along the hod
to hear him speak, lie took the plat
form to speak but after a sentence or
two the band, heading a procession o
labor organizations came in sight an
made it impossible for him to proceed
The procession was in his honor and
there being, as estimated by the (ilolie.
Democrat's reporter, seven thousand in
the procession, of course be could not
well w ail for them nil to come up and
could not speak tuilil they did come up,
so he retired lo his headquarters ami
there received a committee of working-
men, to whom be spoke as follows:
"tlentlctnen: Such a demonstration
as Ibis, coming from the common peo
ple, the substratum of good (ioveru
uieul. that upon which the foundation
of tiie Government rests, is a cumuli-
men! which would gratify nnv man. but
n 1 bear in mind that you come on
this, the mil) holiday night in the week,
from your various homes and occupa
tions to pay me the highest compliment
which could he paid lo man, to give linn
your indorsement, your approbation,
your laudation nnd assurances of your
support. I feel thai it would move a heart

to organize ami demand the proper rec-
ignmon oi ttieir rignis and proper pro

there nreover UK) members of the pres
ent Congress who could have been du
lled in their (listriels bv a change of

insist that a tribunal should be created
before which whatever dillicullics that
may arise net ween labor and capital
could be fuirly adjudicated. It lias
been said Ihere is a eonlliet between la
bor and capital; that is not sound.
1 Heir interests are identical. Hut when
contests are forced by the few strong
upon the many weak those contests
should not bo as heretofore, between the
few, with great strenglh on ono side
and the many with only numbers on the
other side. Such contests injure both
sides and confer no substantial benefit
on either. The people should veto for
nothing that is wrong, and should sub
mit to nothing that is not right. You
exercise great power and should organ

The New York Delegation iu caucus

of 47 to 23, and as their Slate conven

saul the Cleveland organizers sought
half an hour's talk with ltiiller this
morning, and tendered him position of
Secretary of the Treasury under Cleve
land if he came to Cleveland's support
on the first ballot.
General Butler promptly replied that
he could not consent lo hold a cabinet
otlice under a man so unskilled in poli
tics as Cleveland. In making his reply
lo the overtures (leu. Uutler's language
was more vigorous than elegant, but it
conveyed the contemptuous idea above
mentioned.
Although candidates are being put in
nominal ion, the convention has ordered
thul no vole be taken on the candidates
until the platform is adopted, which
will probably be not before late this
Thursday night and may not he before
to-morrow.
Notes.
The platform committee could not
select a chairman the vote being n tin
between Morrison of Illinois and Coil
verse of OhioMorrison representing
tarilf for revenue only and Converse
protection.
When Butler entered the convention,
yesterday,! here was loud cheermg.min
gled with hissfs.
The labor organizations again made
a llutler demonstration Tuesday night.
I here is talk of Cleveland withdrawing
nnd Hewitt taking his place.
The riiurman men use red bandanna

Cleveland has undoubtedly got over a
majority but the reports indicate that
lie will hardly get the necessary two
thirds. On call of roll of Stales, yesterday,
Massachusetts announced that it would
put no one in nomination for the pres
ent. (ien. Ilutlcr is a member of the com
mittee on platform.
Tuesday's dispatches said Butler had
declared that he would support the
nominee no matter who was nominated.
Duller never made so servile declara
tion in his life. We felt sure the report
was incorrect, nnd this morning's Post
Dispatch brought the news that Ilutlcr
bad declared over his signal are that he
would not stand the nomination of a
Monopolist.

Another principle of governmental
action still is taught us which our fath
ers believed before theoretically, which
wc know now practically nnd which
may be stated in almost a seeming par
adox that our military power is the
strongest when our armies are the weak
est because every soldier is a citizen in
pence, and every citizen is a soldier in
war. If we could only treat the Indian
with justice, and tench him the arts of
peace, we have practically no use for
even the skeleton of an army which now
exists. For this generation at least an
army of American soldiers can be im
provised within weeks capable of meet
ins any army that can be precipitated
upon our shores even witli the aid of
steam transportation. And there is no
duty of preparation, for war required at
the. hands of the government snve thai
the best of arms and the best of ammu
nition and best of equipment, to furnish
an army of a million of men, should be
always ready in arsenal.
I have said -and all my comrades in
arms will ngree-that armies may be im
provised suHieient for all the needs of
this country; they will nsscmhle at call,
like the clan of Roderick at Ihe sum
mons of the Fiery Gross. Hut not so
with the navy. The sailors indeed
would be ready If we had not succeeded
in crushing out our merchant marine.
Years must pass before a navy can be
built and armed sutHcient to cope with
nny litth-riite naval power iu the world.
Let us not deceive ourselves.
In the war of lK12,n single heavy gun
of the calibre of that day, but which
would be but a toy in Ibis, on Ihe deck
nl a llallimore clipper, ora Portsmouth
schooner, made tin clleettve cruiser
against the commerce of Kngland, and
thousands of dollars of prizes stimulat
ed nnd rewarded the enterprise. Any
well built merchant ship capable of sus
taining the shock of the discharge of the
Haltery placed upon her own decks,
went out to meet English frigates, and
generally found to be superior 111 sail
nig dualities.
For blockading purposes in our late
m nm. ivs oiipro) iseu wiiu itimosi
count lacilitv; nut tlial was to lie used
against a combatant that had no cruis
ers which ever came into a home port
Hut this cannot be done again. In na
val wariare all is changed. 1 he guns
which an armed ship must now carry to
protect llsclt even, takes months in con
struction after the plant should be erec
ted upon which they could be made.
There is no civil requirement Ihat needs
Ihe. machinery or Ihe erection of such a
plant. Years are required lo build a
naval vessel of steel and iron to meet
one of the heavy armed vessels of Kng
land, r rami or Italy. An adequate ita
yy ought to he made ready, liecause our
only weak point as a jiower on earth, as
a nation, is llie liability to he attacked
by a naval force nrccinitated unon us.

Hv what seemed to me Iben.nnd what
seems to me now, more and more "fa

that whatever neutral nation shall fur

er use save to enable such cruiser to gel
quickly and sateiyion port ot hcrcouu
try, such nation so furnishing coal shall
be held responsible lo the other bellig
erent tor all damage that such cruise
should afterward do while using that
coal. That is to say, in case of war, bv
the rule of international law to which
we have bound ourselves, und recom
mended other nations to Ira bound
thereby, no nation can permit her cit
izens to sell to or furnish an American
war vessel with a pound of coal except
to bring her home. jow tins country
has not a naval station away from our
own shores on enrth where she has
right to have a pound of coal except she
may buy it in the market in time of
peace, and that Is forbidden bv the rule
I have mentioned in time of war.
No American war ship has been built
or can be built that can carry coal
enough to steam iitteen nnys irom home
and get back. How completely we wen
over-reached in our diplomacy will be
seen when we remember that for one
hundred years, nay, for one hundred
and fifty years, Kngland has been cs
tahlishing for! i lied military posts and
stations tor coaling and magazines f.
