The Concentration of Wealth,
"Many cite tho concentration of
wealth in a few hands as ono cause of the
farmer's poverty, but is not that worse in
other countries with different systems?"
There is no country of high civiliza

Adopted by the Democrats In National
The following U the full and com
plete platform as adopted by the
National Democratic convention:
We, the Democrats of the United
States in national convention assemb
led, do reatllrni our allegiance to those
great essential principles of justice
and 'liberty upon which our Institu
tions are founded, and which the
Democratic party has advocated from
Jefferson's tune to our own freedom
of speech, freedom of the press, free
dom of conscience, the preservation of
personal rights, the equality of all
citizens before the law, and the faith
ful observance of constitutional limi
tations. During all these-years the Demo
cratic party has resisted the tendency
of selfish interests to the centraliz
ation of governmental power, and
Htcadfastly maintained the integrity
of the dual scheme of government
established by the founders of this
republic of republics. Under its
guidance and teachings the great
principle of local self-governmeht has
found its best expression In the main
tenance of the right's of the states
and In Its assertion of the necessity
of confining the general government
to the exercise of powers granted by
the constitution of the United States.
The constitution of the United
States guarantees to every citizen the
rights of civil and religious liberty.
The democratic party lias always been
the exponent of political liberty and
religious freedom and It renews its
obligations and rcafirnis Its devotion
to these fundamental principles of
the constitution.
Recognizing that the money ques
tion Is paramount to all others at this
time, we Invite attention to the fact
that tho constitution names silver
and gold together as the money metals
of the United States, and that the
first coinage law passed by congress
under the constitution mado the sil
ver dollar the money unit, and ad
mitted cold to free coinage at a ratio
based upon the silver dollar unit.
We declare that the act of 1873 de
monetizing silver without tho knowl
edge or approval of the American peo
ple has resulted In the appreciation
of gold, and a corresponding fall in
tue price or commodities prouueeu oy
the peeple; a heavy increase in the
burden of taxation and of all debts,
public and private; the enrichment of
the money lending class at homo and
abroad, the prostration of Indnstry,
and Impoverishment of the people.
We are unaltorably opposed to more
ometalllbtu, which has locked fast the
prosperity of all Industrial people In
paralysis of hard times, Gold mono
metallism is a uritisn policy, uuu it
adoption has brought other nations
Into financial servitude to London.
It Is not only un-Amerlcan, but antl
Amerlcan, and It can bo fastened on
the United States only by tho stilling
of that snirlt and love of liberty
which proclaimed our political inde
pendence in 1770 and won in the war
of the revolution.
We demand the free and unlimited
coinage of both silver and gold at the
present legal ratio of 10 to 1, without
waiting for the aid or consent of any
other nation. We demand that the
standard silver dollar shall be a full
legal tender, equally with gold, for all
rlnhts. nubile and private, and wo
favor such legislation as will prevent
for the future the demonetization or
any kind of legal tender money by
private contract.
We are opposed to the policy and
practice of surrendering to the hold
oranf t.im nhliuatlons. of the united
States, the option reserved by law to
. . l .1 ,. j v I - unit nl
the government oi rcueuuuiiB m,n ob
ligations In either silver coin or gold
coin. , , . . .
We are opposed to the issuing of Interest-bearing
bonds of the United
States In time of peace, and condemn
the trafficking wuu oanxiug bynui
cates which, in exchange for bonds
and at an enormous profit to them
selves, supply the federal treasury
with gold to maintain the policy of
gold monometallism.
Congress alone has the power to
coin and issue money, and Prerldent
Jackson declared that this power
could not be delegated to corporations
or Individuals. We therefore de
nounce the Issuance of notes intended
to circulate as money by national
honim no in (lprniiitlon of the consti
tution, and we demand that all paper
which is made a legal tender for
public and private debts or which la
receivable for duties to the United
Btates shall be be issued by the gov
ernment of the United btaies ana
shall be redeemable in coin.
Wo hold that tariff duties should be
levied for purpose oi reicuuu.Butu uu
tles to bo bo adjusted as U operate
equally throughout the country ana
not discriminate between clasaor beo!
tlon, and that taxation should bo
limited by the needs of the govern
ment honestly and economically ad
ministrated. We denounce as disturbing to busi
ness the Republican threat to restore
the McKlnley law, which hag twice
been condemned by tho peoplo In na
tional elections, and which, enacted
under the false plea of protection to
homo industry, proved a prolific
breeder of trusts and monopolies, en
riched the few by the expense of the
many, restricted trade, nud deprived
the producers of the great American
staples of access to their natural mar
Until the money question Is settled
we are opposed to any agitation for
further changes In our tariff laws, ex
cept such as are necessary to meet the
deficit in revenuo caused by tho ad
verse decision of the supreme court on
the income tax. But for this decision
by the supremo court, there would be
no deficit In tho revenuo under thelaw
passed by a Democratic congress in
strict pursuance of tho uniform deci
sions of that court for 100 years, that
court having In that decision sus
tained constitutional objections to its
enactment which had preciously been
overruled by the ablest Judges who
have ever sat on the bench. Wo de
clare that It Is the duty of congress to
use all the constitutional power which
remains after that decision, or which
niny como from Its reversal by the
court as It may hereafter be consti
tuted, so that the burdens of taxation
may be equally and impartially laid,
to the end that wealth may bear Its
due proportion of the expense of the
We hold that the most efficient way
of protecting American labor Is to
prevent the importation of foreign
pauper labor to compete with it In the
home market, and that tho value of
the home market to our American
farmers and artisans Is greatly reduced
by a vicious monetary system which
depresses the prices of their products
below the cost of production, and thus
deprives them of the means of pur
chasing the products of our home
manufactories, and, as labor crcatcB
tho wealth of the country, we demand
the passage of such laws as may be
necessary to protect itin all its rights.
We are In favor of the arbitration
ofdlfferences between employers en
gaged in intcrstarc commerce and
their employes, and recommend such
legislation as is necessary to carry out
this principle.
Tho absorption of wealth by tho
few, the consolidation of our leading
railroad systems, and tlio formation
of trust and pools require a stlcter
control by tho federal government of
those arteries of commerce. Wo de
mand the enlargement of the powers
of tho Interstate commerce commiss
ion and such and such restrictions and
and guarantees in In tho control of
railroads as will protect the people
from robbery and oppression,
Wc denounce the profligate waste
of the money wrung from tho people
by oppressive taxation and tho lavish
appropriations of recent Republican
congresses', which have kept taxes

Is unemployed, and the products of
tho neonle's toll are depressed in price

Wc demand a return to that sim
plicity and economy which benefits a

What a great quan

to do I There are
