platform as read was adopted, and is
as follows:
Itebolved by the I)emocracy of South
Carolina in Convention assembled:
I. That we re-atlirm and endorse the
platform of principles enunciated by
the State D emocratic Convention of
111100, with especial stress upon the fol
lowing sections:
"That we view wi,i alarm the power
which the trusts tiough the lRepubli
c(anl party are exercising over legisla
tion and national polities and their
ability to Control tile prices of the
necessities of life without regard to the
law of supply and demand. We coi
dem the hypocritical attitude of the
Republican leaders who abuse trusts
and Combines, while they use the
money obtained from them and ex
torted from the people to debauch the
ignorant Voters of tihe Country.
"ThPliat we denounce the imperialistic
policy of' the Republican administration
as contrary to the letter and spirit of
the I uelaration of Independence andl([
the constitution of the United States,
and as dangerous to the liberty and
freedom not only of the people of the
Spanish islands, nbut of the citizens of
this country as well. 'ile benevolent f
assimilation' of the F ilipinos llas
proven to be tie benevolence of mur
der and the asimilation of' robery. We
dlenounce it as an outrage upol the con- I
sciences of liberty-loving Americans.
Our free institutions cannot long sur
vive the destruction of those princi
ples upon which they rest, and the I
spectacle of subject pcoples being held r
down by tile bayonet and robbed by
the carpet bagers but foresiadows t
the fate of our country, unless the peo- it
pie are aroused to our danger. The o
unjust ind cruel war of subjugation a
now beimg carried oil ill the l'hilippines d
should be onded at once, with defilli te 8
and specilic declarations to the natives t
as to the intentions of this country to a
aid them in tile establisllment of a free '1
government of their own choice under o
a p)rotectorate by the ,I nited States."' e
It. That we re-alfirm and endorse o
the correlated sections of the Kansas a
City platform upon the subject of trusts z
alnd imperialhsm 11s follows: I
l'riVate monopolies are indefensible I
and intolerable. They destroy < n. t
petition, control tile prices of material 8
and of the finished products, thus rob- a
billg both producer and consumer.
They lessen the employment of labor
and arbiltrarily fix tile terms and con- p
ditions thereof, and (lepr'ive individual r
energy and small capital of their op- i1
porunity for bultterment. They are w
the most ellicient means devised for U
iippropriating the fruits of industry for C
lC )enfit, Of tile few at the expelle b'
of tile many, and unless their insatiate s
1reed is cheeked all weIth will be ag- t(
LYregaltedl in a few ads 111and the Ite
public destroyed. The dishonest pal- z
Lering with the trust. evil by the Re- tl
pIlblicall party in State an1d national I
platforms is conclusive proof of the 81
truth of tile charges that trlists arve the v
legitimllate product of liepublican poli- C
