Cohtinufd from Jirnt jxiiji'.) enthusiastic for going into the political arena, aw l'nl likewise th wet ion of (ire) lock ly itH delegate Aiigiwt Kleiner. liolll COIIIl'H'lt'H hpllke Of tilt' VtlteH tlllll coulil be counted on in those towim for Nociiilisni. Next comrade Max Klt'iimcr of Springtield, who Hail that hm net'titm had instructed linn to do what he thought would he best fur the cause, Should the sentiment of a majority of the sei'tiutls of the State, its expressed in the Convent ion, l' favorable to politi cal action, lie could Hay with certainly that Springfield would fall into line and do all it could ill the shape of money mid votes. John I'alme of New Bedford Hiiid that the (irgaiii.ttion in that city had lieeti greatly weakened on account of the Chicago faction. KlTortH were now being inaile to re-organize and he thought that hhortly they would suc ceed in having a wet ion of 50 inetiibcrrt. LouwtieiiH of Lawrence reported that hit wi'tioti regaided the ipiehtion of money as secondary, that the ipiehtion of first importance wm to effect an alliance with otherH who could mipport li muddied Socialist platform. An the afternoon won consider, ilily advanced and all delegates had made their report it wt moved hy ( oinrade Iseneeker of Huston and seconded hy I'oinni'le Klem ner of Springfield that the SocialiHt J.atior I'.uty til MasNailnmelts go into political action tins year. Alter a thorough discussion of the motion hy all the delegates and nitnibiiH of the State ( '.iiniiiittre, during which each one .x pressed his own private opinion relative thereto, it was liually carried unanimously. The announcement of the vole iih greet 'd with liners. I luring I he di-rlission of the aliove mo tion the chairman said he did not think the lime for political action in tliiH Slate had come ; t h it Sociali-m was Hot yet sulli'-ielitlv organized; that, it woiiM lie KM ter to licit i political action and attend to the work of agitation and or gaiiiat inn as of i he liisl importance at this moment. As. soon as ihi hail heen done there would lie means enough w it li winch to carry on a political campaign, l'avid Taylor also spoke in a similar vein. lie siiggc-Jt'd, houever, as all were evidently m favor of political action, that 'every comrade in the Sla e should io his duty and not act as if lie felt souiehoily else might do it. Comrade Dr. James Waldock of the State Committee was lor politic il action, as the law of evolution would, rentier such action inevitalile whether the Socialists of MassachiiM'tts went into it or not at pr wmiI. Afterwards, a committee on p'atforni was chosen, coinposeii of CoioratlcH Taylor, I'rieile, iseiiecker, Waldock ainl Clalf. This commit lee w as instructed to make in framing the platform what ever use it might deem liest of the plat forms of the Independent Iiiihor Party of l.ynn and of our comrades in New York State. The convention further voted to leave the mailer of making no minations for the State ticket to the Ht'dions separately, eat h one to send a list of Hh nominal ions to the Secretary of the State Committee within fourteen days. The convention also voted on motion of coiuiade Iseneckcr that the constitution he so amended as to make it necessary for the Slate Committee to get t he approval of t he I Ion) on Sections before calling a convention, On motion of Comrade Theinert it was voted by the Convention thai a monthly campaign paper he started in six months hence, and that each edition consist, of l(),lHH) eopit'H ; that it he carried on by a com mittee appointed by t he Stale ( 'ommittee and under the supervision of the latter, and that the place of publication be in 1 lost on. It was thought that the motley realized from advertisements would be KuHicicnt to run such a paper. A com mittee was then appointed on resolu tions, consisting of s. K. Putney and K. W. Theinert. After the payment of the expenses of delegates and the disposal of some minor matters and the adoption of a result! ion recommending the ut most harmony between socialists throughout the country, the Conven tion adjourned sine die.

Y a .inri.Hina.M.-ii.iiis 1 V V' V'g -PLATF0RM- OF Socialist Labor Patty, Adopted at the Chicago The Socialist Labor Party of the United States, in convention a8ser,il,!e1, n aHMert the iniiiietuihle right of all men to life, liberty, ami the jiunuiit of Inii'iimess. With the founder of the American republic we hold that the purpose of Kowrn nient is to Hecure every citizen in the enjoyment of thin right; but in the light of our Hot'ial conditions we hold, furthermore, that no such right can he exercised under a system of economic inequality, essentially destructive of life, of liberty, ami t)f happiness With the founders of this republic we hold that the true theory of polities is that the machinery of government must he owned and controlled by the whole people; but in the light of our industrial development we hold, furthermore, that the true theory of economics is that the machinery of production mt, t likewise belong to the people in common. To the obvious fact that our despotic system of economics iH the direc opposite of our democratic system f politics, can plainly be traced the existence of a privileged class, the corruption of government by that class, the alienation of public property, public franchises and public functions to that class, and the ahjfct dependence of the mightiest of nations upon that class. Again, through the perversion of democracy to the ends of plutocracy, labor is robbeilof the wealth which it alone produces, iH denied the means of self-employment, and, by compulsory idleness in wage-slavery, is even deprived of the iiece-saries of life, Hainan power ami natural forces are thus wasted, that the plutocracy may rule. Ignorance and misery with all their concomitant evilH are perpetuated, that the people may be kept in bondage. Science, and invention are diverted from their humane purpose to the enslave ment of women and children. Against such a system the Socialist Labor Party once more enters its protest. Om e morel it reiterates its fundamental declaration that private property in the natural sources of production and in the instruments of labor is the obvious cause of all economic .servitude and political dependence; and HVemix, the time is fast coining when, in the natural course of social evolution, this system, through the destructive action of its failures and crises on the one hand, and the constructive tendencies of its trusts and other capitalistic coiu binations on the other hand, shall have worked out its own downfall ; therefore, be it JitHlved, that we call upon the people to organize with a view to the sub stitution of the co-operative commonwealth for the present state of planless pro duction, industrial war and social disorder; a commonwealth in which every worker shall have the free exercise and full benelit of his faculties, multiplied by all the modern factors of civilization. We call upon them to unite with us in a mighty effort to gain by all practi cable means the political power. In the meantime, and with a view, to immediate improvement in the con dition of labor, we present the following " Demands": SOCIAL DEMANDS. 1. Reduction of the hours of labor in proportion to the progress of production. 2. The United States ehall obtain possession of the railroads, canals, telegraphs,, telephones, and all other means of public transportation and communication. 3.
