THE SILVER PLATFORM.
The National Silver party in conven
tion assembled hereby adopts the follow
ing declaration of principles:
1. The paramount issue at this time
in the United States is indisputably the
money question. It is between the gold
pt&Ddard, the gold bonds and bank cur
reocy on one side, and the bimetallic
ataudard, no bonds and government cur
rency on the other. On this issue we de
clare ourselves to be in favor of a dis
tinctively American system. We are
unalterably opposed to the single gold
standard and demand immediate return
to the constitutional standard of gold
and silver by restoration by this govern
ment, irdependently of any foreign pow
er, of the u nreetricted coinage of both
gold and silver into standard money at
the ratio of 16 to 1, and upon terms of
exact equality as they existed prior to
1873, the silver coin to be full legal ten
der equally with go!d for all debts and
dues public sod private, and we favor
such legislation as will prevent further
demonetization of any kind of legal ten
der money by private contract. We
bold the power to control and regulate
papier currency is inseparable from the
ppver to coin money, and hence that al

advertisers treasury policy, conourred in by the re
currency intended to circulate as money
ehould be is6ued and its volume con
trolled by the general government only,
and it should be legal tender. We are
unalterably opposed to the issue by the
United States of interest-bearing bonds
in time of peace, and we denounce as a
blunder worse than a crime the present
of publican house, of plunging the country
in debt by hundredsof millions io a vain
attempt to maintain the gold standard
by borrowing gold, and we demand the
payment of all coin obligations of the
United States as provided by existing
laws in either gold or silver coin at the
option of the government and not at the
option of the creditors.
2. That over and above all other ques
tions of policy, we are in favor of restor
ing to the people of the United States
the time-honored money of the constitu
tion—gold and silver, not one but both
—the money of Washington, Hamilton,
Jeffersob, Monroe, Jackson and Lin
coln, to the end that the American peo
ple may receive honest^ pay for honest
product, tbat the American debtor may
pay his just obligations in an honest
standard and not in a standard that has
appreciated 100 per oent above all the
great staples of the country, and to the
end further that present silver standard
countries may be deprived of the uejust
advautage they now enjoy in the differ
ence in exchange between gold and sil
ver—an advantage which tariff legisla
tion alone cannot overcome.
We therefore confidently appeal to the
people of the United States to leave in
abeyance for the moment all other ques
tions, however important and even mo
mentous they may appear—to sunder if
need be all former party ties and affiilia
tions, and unite in one supreme effort to
free themselves and their ohildren from
the domination of the money power—a
power more destructive than any which
has ever been fastened upon civilized
man of any race or in any age. And
upon the eocsummation of onr denires
and efforts we invoke the gracious favor
of Divine Providence.
Mr. Griffen, one of the leading econo
mists of Great Britain says: "A creditor
nation is able to draw more from ita trib
utaries who have to pay iu the appreci
ated money than it wbuld otherwise be
able to draw. To pay the Bame debt
they must send to their creditros 30, 50,
lerhups 1"0 p«r ceut more of produce
than they would otherwise have to Eend.
There is i:o doubt that in this sense the
weight of a gold debt of a debtor nation
like India or the United States has
enormounly increased of late years.
''All the evidence points to a continu
ance of this appreciation.
"Debtors pay more than they would
otherwise pay and creditors receive more,
and this appreciation is a serious matter
to those who have debts to pay."

as champion of the protection of Ameri
can indubtry and commerce, and put np

grent struggle, one of the greatqeWj^trug
gles in which the people of this Country
have ever engaged in a time of peaoe—it
is a struggle between democracy on one
side and plutocracy on the other, and
there is no middle ground for any man
to stand upon. They who are not for us
are agaihst us. Whether we win now or
not we have begun a warfare against the
gold standard whioh shall oontinue until
the gold standard is driven from our
shores and back to England. We have
been opposed to importation of criminals
and paupers from abroad, and we shall
