PEOPLE’S PLATFORM
ADOPTED BY THE CONVENTION
At Omaha, Neb., July 4, 1892.
Corruption Dominates the
Ballot-Box, the Legisla
tures, Congress.
Assembled upon the one hundred
end sixteenth anniversary of the
Declaration of Independence, the
peoples party of America, in their
first national convention, invoking
upon their action the blessing of Al
mighty God, puts forth in the name
and on behalf of the people of the
country the following preamble and
declaration of principles:
The conditions which surround us
best justify our co-operation; we
meet in the midst of a nation
brought to the verge of moral, polit
ical and material ruin. Corruption
dominates the ballot box, the legis
latures, the congress, and touches
even the ermine on the bench. The
people are demoralized; most of the
States have been compelled to isolate
the voters at the polling places to
prevent universal intimidation or
bribery. The newspapers are largely
subsidized or muzzled, public opinion
Silenced, business prostrated, our
homes covered with mortgages, labor
impoverished, and the land concen
trating in the hands of the capital
ists. The urban workmen are de
nied the right of organization for
self-protection; imported pauperized
labor beats down their wages; a hire
ling army, unrecognized by our law,
ie established to shoot them down
and they are rapidly degenerating
Into European conditions. The
fruits of the toil of millions are bod
ily stolen to build up colossal for
tunes for a few, unprecedented in
the history of mankind, and the pos
sessors of these in turn despise the
republic and endanger liberty. From
the same prolific womb of govern
mental injustice we breed the two
Eeat classes—tramps and million
res.
The national power to create mon
ey is appropriated to enrich bond
holders: a vast public debt, payable
S legal tender currency, has been
nded into gold-bearing bonds,
thereby adding millions to the bur
iens of the people.
Silver, which has been accepted as
Cin since the dawn of history, has
en demonetized to add to the pur
•feasing power of gold, by decreasing
the value of all forms of property as
well as human labor, and the supply
of currency is purposely abridged to
ittten usurers, bankrupt enterprise,
led enslave industry. A vast con
%>iracy against mankind has been or-
Cnized on two continents and it is
pidly taking possession of the
World. If not met and overthrown
•i once it forebodes terrible social
convulsions, the destruction of civil
isation, or the establishment of an
absolute despotism. We have wit
■sssed for more than a quarter of a
•sntury the struggles of the two
E*at political parties for power and
under, while grievous wrongs have
ion inflicted upon the suffering peo-
Ce. We charge that the controlling
fluences dominating both these
jarties have permitted the existing
tread ful conditions to develop,
without serious effort to prevent or
restrain them.
Neither do they now promise us
•ay substantial reform. They have
•freed together to ignore, in the
•oming campaign, every issue but
Me. They propose to drown the out
cries of plundered people with the
»roar of a sham battle over the tar
-80 that capitalists, corporations,
national banks, rings, trusts, watered
•lock, the demonetization of silver,
•ad the oppressions of the usurers
•ay all be lost sight of. They pro
pose to sacrifice our homes, lives and
ihildren on the altar of mammon; to
destroy the multitude in order to se
cure corruption funds from the mil
lonaiers. Assembled on the anniver
sary of the birthday of the nation,
•ad filled with the spirit of the grand
Kneral in chief, who established
r independence, we seek to restore
Ifee government of the republic to
Ike hands of “the plain people,”
with whose class it originated. We
assert our purposes to be identical
with the purpose of the national con
stitution, to form a more perfect
••ion and establish justice, insure
domestic tranquility, provide for the
common defense, promote the gener
al welfare, and secure the blessings
of liberty for ourselves and our pos
terity.
We declare that this republic can
•nly endure as a free government
while built upon the love of the
whole'people for each other and for
the nation; that it cannot be pinned
together by bayonets, that the civil
war is over and that every passion
•nd resentment which grew out of it
must die with it, and that we must
be in fact, as we are in name, one
•nited brotherhood. Our country
tnds itself confronted by conditions
for which there is no precedent in
the history of the world. Our
annual agricultural productions
•mount to billions of dollars in
value, which must within a few
weeks or months be exchanged for
billions of dollars of commodities
consumed in their producton; the ex
isting currency supply is wholly in
adequate to make this exchange.
The results are falling prices, the
formation of combines and rings,
the impoverishment of the produc
}ng class. We pledge ourselves that
f given power we will labor to cor
rect these evils by wise and reason
able legislation in accordance with
the terms of our platform.
We believe that the powers of gov
ernment—in other words, of the peo
ple-should be expanded (as in the
case of the postal service) as rapidly
as far as the good sense of an intelli
gent people and the teachings of ex
perience shall justify to the end that
oppression, injustice and poverty
•nail eventually cease in the land.
While our sympathies as a party of
reform are naturally upon the side of
•very proposition which will tend to
make men intelligent, virtuous and
temperate, we nevertheless regard
these questions—important as they
•re—as secondary to the great issue
new pressing for solution, and upor
which not only our Individual pros
perity, but the very existence of free
institutions depends, and we ask all
men to first help us to determine
whether we are to have'a republic to
administer, before we differ as to the
conditions upon which it is to be ad
ministered. believing that the forces
of reform this day organized will
never cease to move forward until
every wrong is righted and equal
privileges established for all the men
and women of this country; we de
clare, therefore,
UNION-OF THE PEOPLE.
First, That the union of the labor
forces of the United States tjiis day
consummated, ehall be permanent
and perpetual; may its spirit enter
into all hearts for the salvation of
the republic and the uplifting of
mankind.
Second, Wealth belongs to him
who creates it, and every dollar tak
en from industry without an equiva
lent, is robbery. “If any man will
not work neither shall he eat.” The
interests of rural and civil labor are
the same; their enemies are identi
cal.
Third. We believe that the time
has come when the railroad corpora
tions will either own the people or
the people must own the railroads,
and should the government enter
upon the work of owning and man
aging the railroads, we should favor
an amendment to the constitution
by which all persons engaged in the
government service shall be placed
under a civil service regulation of
the most rijpd character, so as to
prevent the increase of the power of
the national administration by the
use of such additional government
employes. -
We demand a national currency,
safe, sound, and flexible, issued by
the general government only, a full
legal tender for all debt public and
Erivate, and that without the use of
anking corporations, a just, equit
able and efficient means of distribu
tion direct to the people at a tax not
to exceed 2 per cent per annum, to be
provided as set forth in the sub
treasury plan of the farmers alliance,
or a better system; also by payments
in discharge of its obligations for
public improvements.
We demand free and unlimited
coinage of silver and gold at the
present legal ratio of 16 to 1.
We demand that the amount of
circulating medium be speedily in
creased to not less than SSO per
capita.
We demand a graduated income
We believe that the money of the
country should be kept, as much as
possible, in the hands or the people,
and hence we demand that all state
and national revenues shall be lim
ited to the necessary expenses of the
government, economically and hon
estly administered.
Vte demand that postal savings
banks be established by the govern
ment for the safe deposit of the
earnings of the people and to facili
tate exchange.
TRANSPORTATION.
• Transportation being a means of
exchange and a public necessity, the
government should own and operate
the railroads in the interest of the
people.
The telegraph and telephone, like
the postoffice system, being a neces
sity for the transmission of news,
should be owned and operated by the
government in the interests or the
people.
The land, Including all the natural
sources of wealth, is the heritage of
the people, and should not be monop*
olized for speculative purposes, and
alien ownership of land should be
prohibited. All land now held by
railroads and other corporations in
excess of their actual needs and all
lands now owned by aliens should be
reclaimed by the government and
held for actual settlers only.
The following resolutions were of
fered independent of the platform,
and were adopted, as expressive of
the sentiment of the convention:
Resolved, That we demand a free
ballot and a-fair count in all elec
tions, and pledge ourselves to secure
it to every legal voter without feder
al intervention through the adoption
by the states of the unperverted
Australian secret ballot system.
Resolved, That the revenue de
rived from a graduated income tax
should be applied to the reduction of
the burden of taxation now levied
upon the domestic industries of this
country.
Resolved, That we pledge our sup
port 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
denounce the present ineffective law
against contract labor, and demand
the further restriction of undesir
able immigration.
Resolved, That we cordially sym
patize 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 government work, and ask that a
penalty clause be added to 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 ab
olition, and we condemn the recent
invasion of the Territory of Wyom
ing by the hired assassins of plutoc
racy, assisted by Federal officers.
Resolved, That we commend to
the thoughtful consideration of the
people and the reform press the legis
lative system known as the initiative
and referendum.
Resolved, That we favor a consti
tutional provision limiting the office
of president and vice president to one
term, and providing for the election
ef the senators by a direct vote of
the people.
Resolved, That we oppose any sub
sidy or national aid to any private
corporation for any purpose.

A collection of brilliant gems, the
like of which could scarcely be gleaned
from the writings or speeches of any
other public man of modern times.
The biography proper is in reality a
history of the reform movement, and
a startling commentary on existing
conditions.

Songs of the Lowly and Other
Poems. By George Horton. Cloth,
gilt, $1.50.
These poems, just published, are a

beautiful volume and especially suit
able as a gift-book.

pendence: The People’s Problems
Plainly Presented. By Francis J.
Schulte. Colored chart, 21x28 inches,

outlined in the Omaha Platform,
which is printed in full in clear type.
There are also portraits of Gen.

natural rights that we have ever
read.”—Nonconformist.

ander Winchell.
An Honest Lawyer. By Aldrich
Milton Kerr. Cloth, $1.26. Paper,
60c.
Distinctively an American novel,
and as such, and because of the fas
cinating interest of the story, and
the masterful style in which it is
written, it will commend itself, aside
from the lesson conveyed, to all who
admire the virile and original in lit
erature.
The Crisis of ▲ Party. By Au
gustus Jacobson. Paper, 25c.
Sex and Life. By Eli F. Brown,
M. S., M. D. Illustrated. Cloth, sl.
Paper, 50c.
A very sensible book, for it discusses
plainly, yet with delicacy, the physi
ology and hygene of the sexual organ
izatin. After describing the com
mon sex principal in plants and ani
mals, the author enters upon the dis
cussion of conjugal love, heredity and
the use and abuse of the sexual pas
sion, and other topics which seldom
find a place in a volume for general
reading. His work cannot fail to
have good results, for his suggestions
are wise, and the information he fur
nishes should be known by all.”—
San Francisco Chronicle.

wants to tell his son, and every mo

which both defer too often because
they hesitate to approach so delicate

THE
m
The Publishers of “The Bolden Bottle” siy:
"It Is generally considered a fair sale of a novel if it reaches one or two thousand ooxdes. It is probable
that a majority of books do not get beyond the thousand mark. But this is not the case with the works of Hon.
Ignatius Donnelly. His first book, ‘Atlantis,’ has gone through twenty-fire editions in the United States, ana
several more in England; his ‘Bagnarok’ has reached its eleventh edition, the first one being 6,000 copies. His
‘Great Cryptogram’ has had a sale of over 10,000 volumes, hers and abroad. His ‘Caesar’s Column’ has attained
the tremedous sals of 150,000 copies on this side of the Atlantic and probably as many mors abroad, besides being
translated into three languages. ‘Doctor Huguet’ has also attained a large sale, 12,000 copies having been
sold in this country and a large number in England.
The celebrated B. O. Flower, editor of the great reform magazine of Boston, The Arena, said: "In Mr,
Donnelly’s new book we have a no less remarkable illustration of the author’s marvelous Imagination, but instead
of ruin, we find a transformed world, through wisdom, unselfishness and broad statesmanship. It pictures the
zenith of humanity’s well-being, as ‘Cesar's Column’ painted the nadir. * * * It is told and direct. It does
not cringe before plutocracy, or grovel at the feet of a plutocratic press. It evinces t tat magnificent courage
which commands admiration, ana which without fear or courage states facts as they exist. * * * This book
will be sneered at by those who are interested in maintaining the present unjust econ tmic and political condi
tions; for it reveals in a startling manner some of the prime causes of the misery of the millions today, while it
indicates with equal clearness some of the needed reforms. It does more: It unmasks the batteries of the
enemy; that is, it shows the line of policy which plutocracy will pursue to prevent the triumph of justice for the
industrial millions. If one million copies of this book can be circulated during the next four years among the
Farmers Alliance, the Industrial Legion, the Knights of Labor, the Federated Trades and kindred associations
I believe it will make the triumph of the people inevitable at the next great national contest. As a work of
fiction it is fascinating from cover to cover. As a teacher of social, political and economic reforms it is one of the
most effective books of our time.”
The best book the author has yet written. It is not often that a book is published that touches the life
work of everybody: but this book concerns the welfare or every sane man in the world.—The Beacon, Great Bend,
Kansas.
A skillful blending of the woof of social theories with the warp of imagination and startling plots and
situations. The description of the invasion of the Old World by the United States is a bold conception which will
fascinate statesmen and political students as well as the general reader.—The Hatchet, Washington, D. C.
We have been taught that we should read the novels of Bulwer Lytton, Charles Dickens, Thackery and
the English authors, but we believe that we should teach our children to read the novels of a more forcible author
than any of these—an American author greater than any foreign author—the author of those wonderful works,
"Atlantis,” “Kagnarok,” "The Great Cryptogram,” "Caesar’s Column,” "Dr. Huguet,” “The Golden Bottle,” etc.
—The Farmer and Turfman, Anacostes, Washington.
Let us say to Mr. Donnelly that, although he has never written a play, he is a greater dramatist than his
beloved Sir Francis; a greater dramatist in the ability to mass individuals in pictures, and in the power of con
trast of emotion. It is surely a very silly or very selfish person that will not be impressed by "The Golden Bottle,”
Mr. Donnelly's new novel. * * * It is a fantasy and a sermon. * * * We have outlined a phantasm here,
wild it certainly is, but it is also beautiful. Logic it may have none, but it has heart. In the age of the indivi
dual this book is the gospel of universal brotherhood.—New York Journal.
Mr. Donnelly’s purpose in writing it, like most of his purposes, is carried out apparently without the most
remote thought as to its effect upon himself. No one will gainsay that this erratic character is at heart a good
man; and that he loves his kind, and that his ultimate purpose in life is to do them some little measure of geod.—
St. Paul Dispatch.
Viewed from the standpoint of philanthropy it is a terrible arraignment of the power of monay. It
demonstrates, in fearful fashion, how the heartless capitalist is in his own community what the sailor of th§
Nancy Bell was after he had cannabalized the whole crew of that ship. He really does make a noble effort to
prove that here, in the United States, beauty, art, literature, music, painting, statecraft, are as nothing om»
pared with the unlimited ownership of the universal yellow master of mankind. And he does draw pictures tat
boldness of which one cannot help but admire.—Northwestern Chronicle, St. Paul.
