Louisville, Ky. THE PLATFORM Adoplrii liy the State Democratic Con vention Iay -t 1st, 18SM. We again congratulate the people of "NTm-th Carolina on the continued enjoy ment of peace, good government and gen eral nrosxeiitv under democratic adminis t rat ion of the affairs of the tate which has no been unbroken for so many years; upou the just and impartial enforcement of the laws; upon the mci easing efficiency of our common school system, aud the progress made in popular education; upon the improvement and enterprise manifest ed in all parts of the State. We again challenge a comparison between this state of things and the outrages, crimes and scaudals which attended Republican as cendancy in our borders. We pledge our selves to exert in the future as in the past our best efforts to promote the interests of the people of all sections of the State. Affirming our adherence to Democratic principles as heretofore enunciated in the platforms of the parry, it i.s hereby r.F.soi.Y?:i, That no go eminent has the iU.'ht to burden it people with taxes be- v:!id i tie amount retailed to pay its neces - i; v cNpetiM-s ami gradually extinguish its public debt; and that whenever the reve iities, however derived, exceed t his amount, they should be reduced, so as to avoid a surplus iu tin- treasury. That any system of taxutiou which necessitates the pay ment of a premium of 27) by the govern ment on each l,00o of its bonds, taken up with the millions that would otherwise lie idle in its vaults, and paid to bond holders who purchased, in many instances, at less than par. is undemocratic, oppres. -ive and iniquitous and should be reformed Tlie coarse of oar Democratic Representa tives in Congress, in their efforts to give re lief to the people from burdensome internal revenue and tariff taxation, meets with the approval of the Democratic party of this S'ate and w respectfully recommend that if tii. y rind it impossible to give to our pi-opie all the relief demanded, they support any just and practical measure presented in Congress that will afford a partial relief from such existing burden. Kf.olyed, That while the details of the methods by which the constitutional reve nue tariff shall be gradually reached are subjects which the representatives of our people at the National Capital must be trusted toadjut. we think the customs dutie-; should be levied forthe production f public revenue, and the discriminations iu heir adjustment should be such as will p;,-e the highest rates on luxuries and the ki.-.cst on the necessaries of life, dis tiib".!e as equally as possible the unavoid able burdens of taxation, and confer the gre;'"st t;ood on the greatest number. liF.-ni.vKD, That we, as herlofore, favor, and will never cease to demand, the un conditional abolition of the whole internal reve'.ue system, as a war tax, not to be jtistiiied in times of peace; as a grievous burdeu to our people and a source of an noyance in its practical operations. We call thf attention of the people of the State to the hypocritical pretensions of the Kepubiicati party in their plat foims that they are in favor of the repeal of t his one! ous system of taxation, enacted by their arty, while the Republicans in Congress are taxing their energies to ob struct all legislation inaugurated by the lepresentativcs of the Democratic party to relieve the people of all or a part of this odious system. Resolved, That the course of the Demo cratic party, in furtherance of popular education, is a sufficient guaranty that we f.tvor the education of rhe people, and we will promote and improve the present edu cational advantages so far a it can be done without burdening the people by ex cessive taxation. REsoi.vF.n, That, to meet an existing evil, we will accept, for educational pur-po-cs, from the Federal Government, our i-no n at a share of the surplus in its treas ury, RnoviiiF.P, that it be disbursed through State ageuts and the bill for the distribu tion be free from objectional features. Ri solvf.k, That the L'nited States being one government and ours a National par ty, we denounce the efforts of the Repub licans to force sectional issues in Congress and elsewhere, and to promote dissension and ill-will between the people of the dif ferent sections of our common country. Rf.soi. r,i, That it is due to the people of our Eastern counties, who have so cheer fully borne their share of our common burden-, that the present or some equally effective system of county government shab Ik' maintained. Rksoia f.ii. That the Democratic partyis opposed to any further extension of the "N.) fence law,'" unless such extension shad have thst been authorized by a ma jority of the qualified voters within the territory to be affected thereby. Ri:solvf.i, That the Democratic party has ever been the party of the working man, and has never fostered monopolies, nor have "trusts"' or '"combinations" or "poo's" ever grown up under laws enact ed by it. The contest in this country be ing !ct..een aggregated capital, seeking to crush out all competition, and the indi vidual laborer, the Democratic partyis, as it has ever been, again -t the monopolist and. in favor of a just distribution of capi tal, and demands the enactment of laws t hat will bear equally upon all. Rksoi.vfo, That as all taxation bears in- :-t heaiiy upon the laborer, it is the duty of t he legislator, as a direct benefit to tli.; wot kingnian, to keep the expenses "four public institutions at the lowest limit co:is;si-i:t with wise and efficient management. The Democratic party op poses any competition between free and convict labor, but it insists that convicts shall not remain idle at the expense of honest lalxr. Rf.soj.vi:i, That ours being an agricul tural State, it is our duty as well as our pleasure to promote any and all legisla tion that is best calculated to advauce the interests of ngrieul'ure; and that in so do it:;.' we will most effectually advance the i nte rests of mechanics, manufacturers and laborers. Rf ilv Lb, That the Democracy of North Carolina, cordially approve the adminis tration of Hon. Alfred M. Scales as honest, patriotic and cons-rvative. Kf.solki, Tnat the ability, wisdom, honesty, patriotism, independence, faith fulness to duty and manly courage of President Cleveland have won the admi ration of all good men; and the interests of the country demand his re-nomination and 1 is ic-election. i-i-seum.
