conferred. The dtitlea 1 will be ro-
quired to perform aro few, and they
will bo muuo cany inucco, it your wis

this timo to dimriiwt or even to guirent
tbo questions, to bo raised by you, if you
houlil deem It proper to ruaolve at ait
That is not the rmrnone of my Rolccticm,
nor is it my desiro : but it is simply
that you, coming from all parts of this
Commonwealth, with a common pur
poso, may through forms well oatub
liahed, suak now to the States of the
rc'lcral Union and to be represented
witb them In the jicmocratin national
convention to bo bold at 8l. Louis.
There are hopes I milit express and
prophecies) 1 might declare, hut ouch
things will be uiucii bolter done, and
by a bold, sincere and truthful declara
tion of Democratic principles at Rt.
Louis. There should lie no sanction
of established facts of wrong and no
hesitancy to declare the truth, turoiiEh
any stiKpicion that members of our
own political household may not be
pure. , ibe servants ot the people are
on trial everywhere, and it is but just
to the right that the wrong should be
discovered that tho law i the land
shall be supremo, official integrity re
warded aud botrayors of puhlio trim
brought to justice, even though it reach
to tbo household itself of tho President
of the United States. The choir is now
ready to proceed to business. ' "

1 THE PLATFORM. 1
Tho committco on rest lotions hav-j
It arrived, presented their report
through wm. A. Wallace, chairman.
It was as follows:
The Democracy of Pennsylvnia, in
ronvention mot, re assert their olt-re-
pestod declaration of devotion to all of
the provisions or the Federal constitu
tion, and to a perpetual union of tho
States: pledge themselves to rigid fi
delity to public trusts, to a pure and
economical administration of tbo Fed
eral, Stuto and municipal government,
to local self government in every soc
tion, to honest payment of the public
debt and to sacred preservation of the
public faith, They sco with humilia
tion and alarm thoovidencoanf bribery,
fraud and peculation in high places,
tbe distress that provnils and tho wide
spread financial ruin that impends over
tiio people of the Stato, and thoy
churgo that those evils are the direct
results of the personal government, un
wise legislation, vicious financial poli
cy, extravagance and corruption of
tho Jtepublican party and Its otncials;
and, inviting all, of every shadoof po
litical opinion, who believe in official
purity and fidelity, in tho adjustment
of financial questions upon a sound ba
sis, having regard filr the Interests of
the whole people and not ol a class, in
the recognition of the final awttleinont
of all questions submitted to the arbi
traments of tho sword and in a policy
which, under tho Constitution, keeps
abreast of the progress and civiliaa-
tion ot tno ago, to unite witn them,
tboy declare: ' ' .
Vac. That tbo civil tcrvico ol tho
Government baa become corrupt and
is mado tbo object of personal gain,
uml infidelity to public trust has he
como tho rule ami not tho exception.
tve immicv mat honesty, capacity and
fidelity are the only tests of fitness for
puhlio station, and that tho wholesome
penalties of tho law should b nstvl
with rigor to onforeo official acoonnt
ability. Secom. I bat tho recent and repeat-
od exposures of fraud and cormption
in the administration of puhlio affairs
call for a searching and thorough in
vestigation of tho conduct and condi
tion ol every nrnnrn 01 tbo pnnnc ser
vice, to the end that all corrupt prac
tices may bo Drought to light, and that
all who hare abused and betrayed the
public trusts, whstnver may be their
station, may be exposed and pnnished,
nnd wj urge those 111 charge ot this
subject at Washington to prompt,
thorough and exhaustive examination
of their respective fields of labor.
. Third. That retrenchment and econ
omy are Indispensable in Federal,'
State and municipal administration as
an essential meant toward lessoning
the hardens of tbe people, and we com
mend tbe effort nf tbe majority In tbe
House RepirsKntallvni fir th re
duction of the expenditure of tb
Federal Government to a iutt ttnndard,
and tbeir determination to lesson the
number of n soles official.
Fourth. That general amnesty to all
persons implicated in tbe late rebellion
against the Government of the United
Slate, who have not ulrcady been re
lieved from disabilities by tho action
of Congress aud of tho President,
would be an allowable and proper ex
ercise of governmental power in iho
yoar of Centennial celebration of Amer
ican Independence, and that tbe rec
ommendation ot such a measure by
President Grant in a pnblio message
and its endorsement and passage by
Republican House of Kcnrosentatives
at a former session constitute full prool
that such measure is fit, judicious and
fUlh, l uat tbe Democracy ol renn-
sylvania oordially approve of those
provisions of the Stato Constitution,
to wit : Tho 18th section of tbe third
article and the 2d section of tho tenth
article, which protect not only school
funds, but otbur public moneys from
appropriation to sectarian uses, and
that they filly illustrate that doctrine
ot me separation ol tbe Church and
State which has always been a cardinal
ono with the lioraocratlo party.
aixtn. x nut tno- statute lor the re
sumption of specie payment on the 1st
day of January, 1879, is impossible to
execute j it is a detiDerato proclama
tion that at that date the United States
will go into bankruptcy, it paralytus
industry, creates diatmut nf the latum.
turn tbe laborer and the producer out
of employment, is a standing threat
upon the buiinrss man and ought to be
forthwith repealed. -
Seventh. I bat gold and silver are tbe
only true bases lor tbe currency ol the
Republic, and that Congress should
take such steps for the resumption of
specie payments as win most surely
and apoedily reach that result without
destroying the businesa interests of tbe
highth. That the present depression
of all our National industries, which
checks the wholesome flow of capital
through the channels of enterprise, and
denies lo honest labor a decent liveli
hood, is Iho direct, inevitable fruit of
extravagance and of reckless and dis
honest Republican tampering witb the
finance of tho country, and wo de
nounce th authors of that legislation
as officials who havo unsettled
tho foundations alike of the State
and of the borne. We call upon the
people to aid ns to halt tbem in tbie
total career and to sot their faces in
the direction of practical measures,
which shall eventually enable the
Treasury of tbo United Stittos to keep
its plighted faith with rich and poor
alike. We demand legislation through
the power of the Federal (iovornmont,
wbleb shall give us performance lor
promises, and restore solvency to the
Nation, by restoring prosperity to the
Brmtved, That In common with the
people of our sister State wa rejoice in
tbo opportunity to celebrate tbe Cen
tennial of the proclamation of our
emancipation from tbe Government of
British crow : marking, as it did, tbe
epoch ot the greatest event in modern
history ; and feel a just pride that its
celebration should be upon the soil of
our own Cosamonwealtb, and in tbe
city where Indapendenee was declared.

hocauso it is a question that should only
ne considered by the A ational uonven
tion. Ho referred to the fact that ISO
delegates in tbe Krio Convention votwd
for the platform of 1875. He was will
ing to concede the right of tho National
Convention tn declare the financial
policy of the Democratic party, but
was unwilling to take any ouch action
now.' Ho, therefore, moved to omit
the financial resolution. Iho motion
was negatived by an overwhelming

asking permission to prer nt a resolu

Mr. Woodward again called atten
tion to the fact that it was not proposed
to bind delegates, but was a simple ex
pression of sentiment, and a proper and
well-dctervcd tribute toono of the
est names on the calendar.
An amendment providing that the

X., tho wull-kuoivo lawyer, tb other
day, und when tho Judge bud lime to
listen to him ho said :
"Judge, my name it Rcudder. I call

conScquenco wa that when tho dog
barked I always said, "there goo
Potts' half exercising itself,' and when
the dog' tail wagged I alwaya consid
ered that my end was being agitated.
And, ol course, wiien ono 01 my hind
leg scratched one nf Potts' ears or ono
of bis shoulders, 1 was perfectly satis
fied ; lirrt, liccuiisu that sort ti thing

or snap at a fly. Well, things went
along smooth enough for a while, an
til one day that dog bcran to got into
tbo habit of running around alter bis
tail. He was tho foolishest dog about
ibat I over see. He used to chaw hi
tail round and round until he'd get o
giddy be couldn't bark. And yon
know I was skeered lest it might hurt
tb. don', health, and as PolU didn't
seem to be willing to keep bis end Irom
circulating in pursuit of my end 1 made
up my mind to cbop tbe dog s tail off,
so to make him reform and behave.
So last Saturday I caused the dog to
back up agin a log, and then 1 sudden
ly dropped the ax on his tail, pretty
close up, and tbe next minute he was
booming around that yard, yowling
like a boat load of wild-cats. Just then
Potts came np, and be let on to be mad
because I'd cut off tbal tail. One word
brought on another, and pretty soon
Potts sicked that dog on me my half
too, mind you and tbe dog bit mo in
tbe leg: bit a niece out. Soa that:
look at that leg ! About half a pound
ono; 01 up by that dog. Piow, what
want to sco you about. Judge, is
this : Can't I recover damage for as
sault and battery from Potts 1 What
I chopped off belonged to me recollect.
1 owned an undivided half of that Bet
tor pun, from tho tip of bis tail clear
up to his third rib, and I had a right
lo cut away as much of it as I had a
mind to : while Potts, being sole own
er of the dog's head, is responsible
wnen no bites anybody. '
"I don t know," replied tbe Judge,
musingly. "There haven't been any
decisions on cases exactly liko this.
But what docs Mr. Potts say upon the
subject r"' s -
"Why, Potts' view is that 1 divided
tbe dog tho wrong way. When he
wants to map out hi half he draws a
lint) from tho middle of the nose, right
along the spine, and clear to the eud
of tho tail. That gives mo one bind
leg and one fore leg, and make him
joint proprieter of the tail. And he
says that it 1 wanted to cut off my
half of the tail I might have done it,
and he wouldn't 've cared ; but what
made him mad was that I wasted his
property without consulting bim. But
that theory scorns to be a little strain
ed, and U it's legal, why, I'm going to
close out my half of that dog at a sac
rifice ooner than bold any interest in
bim on those principles. Now, what
do yon think about it T"
"Well," said tbo Judge, "I can hard
ly decide so important a question off
hand ; but at the first glance my opin
ion is that veu own the wholo dno-
and that Potts also owns the whole '
dog. 80, when he bite von. a suit
won't lie against Pott, and tbe only
thing you can do toobuin justice is to
make the dog bite Potts also. As for
tbe tail, whon it is separated from thai
dog, it 1 no longer the dog' tail, and
it is not worth fighting about."
"Can't too Pott, you any V
"I think not."
"Can't get damages for the meat
that' been bit out of me V
"1 hardly think you can."
"Well, well, and yet they talk about
American civilization, and the tem
ples of justice, and such things I All

but don't anybody ever undertake to
tell me that the law protect human
