111 UnVHI) COUNTY DEMOCRATIC
COXVEXTUMi PASSES STRONG
RESOLUTION
SINS OF THE REPUBLICANS
Imperial lani Condemned and the
Policy Which Hus Fostered
Corporate Greed la
Denounced.
PARK RAPIDS, Minn.. June 16.—At the
Hubbard county convention the follow
ing resolutions were adopted:
We, the representatives of the Demo
cracy of Hubbard county, in convention
assembled, do hereby declare our ui
legiance to the fundamental principiej
contained in the Declaration of Independ
ence and most loyally pledge our fidelity
to the republic as the fatoers made It.
We view with alarm the corrupt on in
high places and the criminal record mide
during the past tour years by tne en
throned corporations now ruling in this
land.
Sin Is among the diseases that are
catching-. America has caught from K;:^
land the disease of land grabbing, the
thirst lor subjugating inferior races, b.th
tributary to empire building—the crowng
sin of detid nations and the peril of strug
gling nations that yeL exist.
As criminals pass on to prison they pass
through three .stages. First the crime,
then falsehood as a means of concea m nt,
and at last upon discovery they report to
pretexts in which to find and furnish ex
cuses for what they have djne.
Today the head of thi.-; mighty people
stands before the world unable to truth
fully deny the chaig s mad- and unab c
to defend what has been done upon the
ground of right and justice.
His frifnds and defendents plead that
we are now a "world power" and urge the
countiy to sanction his policy, to autn r
iz^ Its continuance, its enlurgem.-nt with
out inquiry or judgment as to the w s
dom, justice or criminalsy incident to hJa
policy, to accept in silence what has b en
done.
In the history of dispotism. there is -lot
a record of a more degrading subservi
ence than is found today in the Repub
lican party, and which the people of
America are asked to accept.
Thus is brought home to every Ameri
can the infamy of the doctrine that a
people may bj governed without their
consent
W hold that of all modern history, the
most disgraceful chapter is that which
the American nation is now writing. At
the end of this century, carrying on a
war i tablishment of a system of
slavery in Asia.
The nature and extent of our business
can be appreciated only by comparing
Lincoln's proclamation of Jan. 1, 1863,
with McKlnley's proclamation of Dec
18. "My terms," said he, "are Q r st
submission and vassalage. I will then con
sider further as to.your fortunes."
It is the reproach of the age and an
omen of evil to America that one citizen
can be found to approve of tills out
rageous doctrine.
We hold that the fundamental rights
or mankind—life, liberty and pursuit of
happiness -are the supreme law, in the
of truckling treaties, secret con'
and bargains, which hired bayonets and
not the opinions of freemen uphold.
Commercialism is distinctly secondary
and inferior to such rights, History plain
ly .-hows that trade and Commerce I ail
when the rights of men decline, for a
Cxod of love and Justice lives.
That government is not valid without
the coqeenl of the governed. That gov
ernments derive their just powers from
the consent of the governed.
must determinedly protest
tablishment of, colonies un-
Ocr Lhe American li llesa of the
constitution of the United States.
With Washington we hold that no na
tion has a right to meddle in the internal
concerns of another; that every ore has
the right to form and adopt whatever
goverment they like best to live under
thems
AHgneft with Jefferson wo want
neither king or rule'- who cannot be flisi
placed by the common ballot of common
men.
Aligned, with the great emancipator
last ol the prophets, we believe that he
who would be no slave, musl consent to
nave no slave; that those who rteny
freedom to others, <h-.^ re it not im- th-m
--s, and under a just God cannot lung
ned with the second i minclpator wo
