of the business and population and to re
store the Just level of prices of labor and

the Increase of the public Interest bear
ing debt made by the present administra
tion as unnecessary and without author
ity of law, and demand that no more bonds
b Issued except by specific act of con.
6. We demand such legislation as will
prevent the demonetization of the lawful
money of the United States fay private
6. We demand that the government In
payment of Its obligations shall use Its
option as to the kind of lawful money In
which they are to be paid, and we de
nounce the present and preceding admin
istrations for surrendering this option to
the holders of government obligations.
7. We demand a. graduated income tax
to the end that aggregated wealth shall
bear Its Just proportion of taxation and we
regard the recent decision of the supreme
court relative to the Income tax a mis
interpretation of the constitution end an
Invasion of rightful powers of congress
ver the subject of taxation.
8. We demand that postal savings banks
be established by ther government for the
safe deposit of savings of the people and
to facilitate exchange.
1. Transportation being a means of ex
change and a public necessity, the gov
ernment should own and operate the rail
roads In the Interest of the people and a
on-partlsan basis to the end that all may
be accorded the same treatment in trans
portation and that the tyranny and poli
tical power now exercised by the great
railroad corporations which result In the
Impairment, If not the destruction of the
people's rights and personal liberties of
the citizens, be destroyed. Such owner
ship is to be accomplished gradually In
a manner consistent with sound public
t The Interest of the United States In
the public highways built with public
moneys and the proceeds of extensive
grams of land to the Racine railroads,
should never be alienated, mortgaged or
sold, but guarded and protected for the
general welfare as provided by the laws
against auoh railroads. The foreclosure
of existing liens of the United States on
these roads should at once follow the de
fault In payment thereof by debtor com.
panles, and at the foreclosure sales of said
roads the government shall purchase the
gam It it becomes necessary to protect
Its Interest In ttie concern, or if It be pur
chased at a reasonable price, and the gov
ernment shall operate saM railroad as
public highways for the benefit of the
whole people and not In the interest of the
few under suitable provisions for pro
tection of life and property, giving to alt
transportation Interest equal privilege
ad equal rate for fare and freights.
8. We denounce the present Infamous

thereto be executed and administered ac
cording to their Interest and spirit.
The telegraph line and the poatofflc
system being a necessity, for the trans
mission of news, should be owned and op
erated by the government In the Interest
of the people.
1 True policy demands that the national
and state legislation shall be such as will
ultimately enable every prudent and In.
dustrloua citizen to secure a home and
therefore, the land should not be monopo
lised for speculative purposes. All lands
now held by railroads and other corpora
tions In excess of their actual needs should
by lawful means be reclaimed by the gov
ernment and held for natural settlers only,
and private land monopoly as well as
alien ownership should be prohibited.
2. We condemn the frauds by which the
land grant Pacific Railroad companies
have through the connivance of Interior
department robbed multitudes of actual
bona fide settlers of their homes and mln.
ers of their claims, and we demand legis
lation by congress which will enforce the
exception of mineral land from sucn
grants after as well as before tne patent,
3. Wo demand that bona nde settlers on
all public lands be granted free homes as
provided In the national homestead law
and that no exception be made In the case
of Indian reservations when opened for
settlement and that all land not now pat
ented come under this demand.
FOURTH, DIRECT LEGISLATION
We favor a system of direct legislation
through the Initiative and referendum,
under proper constitutional safeguards.
F1TTH, GENERAL PROPOSITION.
1. W demand the election of president,
vice-president and United States senators
by a direct vote or the people.
2. We tender to the patriotic people of
the country our deepest sympathy In their
heroic struggle for financial freedom and
independence, and we believe the time has
come when the United Stale, the great
republic of the world, should recognize
that Cuba Is, and of right ought to be, a
free and Independent state.
3. We favor home rule In the territories
and tbs District of Columbia and the early
admission of territories as states.
4. All public salaries should be made
to respond to the price of labor and Its
5. In time of great Industrial depres
sion Idle labor should be employed on pub
lic works as tar as practicable.
6. The arbitrary course of the courts
In assuming to Imprison citizens for In
direct contempt and ruling them by in
junction should be prevented by proper
7. We favor just pensions for our disa
bled Union soldiers.
8. Believing that the elective franchise
and an untrammelled ballot are essential
to government, for and by the people, the
People's party condemn the wholesale sys
tem of disfranchisement adopted in some
of the states as unrepubllcan and undem
ocratic and we declare it to be the duty
of the several states' legislator to take
such action a will secure a full and free
and fair ballot and an honest count.
9. While the foregoing propositions con
stltuto the platform upon which our party
stands and for a vindication of which Its
organization will be maintained, we rec.
ognlze that the great and pressing Issue
In the pending campaign upon wnicn tne
present election will turn, Is the finan
cial question, and upon this great and
specific Issue between the parties, w cor
dially invite the co-operation of all or
ganizations and citizens agreeing with us
upon this vital question.

A number of amendments were of
fered and a minority report was pre
sented. All were laid on the table, how
ever, and the platform was adopted a
The convention then took a recess un
til 6 p. m.
At 6.35 p. m. the convention was
called to order by It permanent chair
man, Senator Allen, of Nebraska, but
It was a long time before the call pro
duced the desired result. Then the
chairman announced that a message
had been received from the silver con
vention and it would now be read.
Delegate Pollock, of Mississippi, a
members of the silver convention, was
Introduced by the chairman, and pro
ceeded to read the plank adopted by
that body. There were some points of
order made against the reading, but
they were promptly overruled by the
When he reached the conclusion to
the effect that Mr. Bryan had been
nominated for the presidency there was
an outburst of applause, drowning the
further announcement of the nomina
tion of Sewall for the vice-presidency.
The call of states for nominations for
Vice-president was resumed. Mr. Bau
mann, of Alabama, appearing a the
spokesman of that delegation, td nomi
nate for vice-president Representative
Skinner, the Populist congressman from
Representative Howard, of Alabama,
placed In nomination Hon. Thomas F.
Watson, the late Populist congressman
from Georgia, who became famous by
bringing Into publicity the alleged In
quiry of Judge Cobb, of Alabama.
Mr. Sovereign, master workman of
the Knights of Labor, seconded the
nomination of Mr. Watson, of the state
I.AFE DRAWS THE POISON.
Mr. Watson' nomination was also
ccconded by Delegate Johnson, of Cal
ifornia, Colorado being called yielded
to Lafe Pence, now In New York, form
erly a congressman of Colorado, who
began by saying:
Mr. President, in order to draw the
poison quickly and hastily out let me
say my purpose Is to give some reason
or try to give some reason why we
should nominate Mr. Arthur Sewall, of
Maine, for vice president."
Thi announcement was received
with great applause, followed by hisses.
We are In a crisis which calls for cool
judgment and not for acclamation, ap- j
plause or noise, continued Mr. Pence.
Do you remember that Lincoln's col
league on the ticket was a man from
Maine Hannibal Hamlin? Do you re
member, or do you know that long be- !
fore any of us was In this fight for
reform and against the "gold ring,"
Mr. Sewall himself was actively in the
fight? It makes no difference as to the
merits of the man. The vice president
does not amount to much unless the
president is a consumptive, and Billy

heart tonight I would go either for
Harry Skinner or .Tom Wilson, of
Georgia (cheers). But I would rather
see the chance of beating McKInley and

Skinner or Mr. Watson, or my good
friend. Page, of Virginia, vice presi
dent of the United States. But If we
nominate either of them Mr. McKInley
would surely be elected, and I for one
am here prompted by no other motive
than to defeat the Republicans. It Is
a pity, a great pity, that we are In thl?
dilemma. Mr. Pence closed hi speech
with the declamation of the verse:
"There are ninety and nine who live and
In want and hunger and cold
Ti'ut vi e may i.vt nd in luxury lie
Wrapped in his silken fold.
The ninety and nine In their hovels
The one In luxury rich and rare.
They're tolling In the fields, the ninety and
For the fruit of our mother earth.
They dig and delve In the dangerous mine
To bring its treasures forth:
But the wealth released by these sturdy
To the hands of the one forever flows."
Mr. Weller, of Iowa, one familiarly
known as ''Calamity" Wcller, nomin
ated Prank Burkltt, of Mississippi.
Mr. A. A. Gunby, of Louisiana, sec
onded Tom Watson.
Delegate L. C. Bateman, of Maine,
protested solemnly against the nomin
ation of Mr. Sewall fur vice president.
The statement that Mr. Sewall was for
merly a Greenbacker he denounced a?
absolutely false. Mr. Sewall had not
one particle 'of sympathy with the
People party except as to be cue
item of silver which was the least
against the Populist demands.
Mr. Sewall has been president of the
Maine Central railroad and in the last
year of his presidency the wages of the
railroad men in that company were
cut down ten per cent. A comparison
with Peter Cooper was an Insult to the
immortal dead. He appealed to the
convention not to farce that bitter
chalice to the Hps of the Populists
of Maine. Mr. Bateman nominated
Mann Page, of Virginia.
Ignatius Donnelly, of Minnesota, was
the next speaker. On behalf of his
state he seconded the nomination of
Mr. Watson, of Georgia. The People's
party could not sustain the candidacy
of Arthur Sewall, of Maine. It was
simply Impossible. If he were to go
home and tell the Populists of Minne
sota that this convention had nominat
ed to the vice-presidency a man worth
$6,000,000, the president of a national
bank and connected with ten other na
tional banks, an officer of one of the
railroads of New England and interest
ed in half the railroads of New England,
the Populists of Minnesota would say
that rather than vote for such a man
they would see all the Democrats in
the country 700 miles below the lowest
pit of hell. (Shouts of laughter). Mis
souri announced that It had no name to
present, but was "fornlnst the man
William R. Henry, of North Carolina,
addressed the convention as the spokes
man, of New Hampshire. He said that
the last words that rang in his ears
when he left the northern states were
"vote for Bryan, because he is greater
than his party, and because he Is &
Populist, but for God Almighty's sake
do not give us Sewall for vice presi
dent." When New Jersey was called a deputy
from that state named Crandall came
up to the platform to make a speech,
but another delegate from the same
state asserted that New Jersey did not
desire to be heard. Mr. Crandall, how
ever, succeeded In betting two and a
half minutes allowed him but he made
no progress a he began by talking
about the planet Mars, and was guyed
by the whole convention. The only
thing he was able to say intelligently
was that his delegation was a Coxey
delegation. As he made hi way back
to his seat he was made the subject
of mock congratulations, which created
great merriment. He was terribly In
earnest, however, and when he got back
to his delegation he had a wordy con
flict with his colleagues, waving a want
ing cane and gesticulating wildly, to

WILL NOT DESERT SEWALL
Mr. Bryan Will Accept No Nomination
Withoat Uis Running Kate.
St. Louis, July 24. William Jennings
Bryan, the nominee of the Chicago con
vention, will not accept a nomination
at the hands of the Populists if they
turn down hi running mate, Sewall,
of Maine. This announcement Is made
on the authority of Mr. Bryan himself.
Senator Jones, of Arkansas, chairman
of the national Democratic committee
who has been In the city for the past
week laboring to secure the endorse
ment of the full Chicago ticket, has
frowned upon the proposition to "split"
the Populist ticket and has been charg
ed with having positively told the lead
ers that they must nominate Bryan
and Sewall or do nothing at all.
It has been evident to Senator Jones
for the past 48 hours that he could not
wean over the men who had been so
bitter in their antagonism to Mr. Se
wall on acocunt of his Identification
with a national bank, against which
system the platform adopted this after
noon Inveighs. As soon as the conven
tion reassembled Senator Jones wired
Mr. Bryan at his home, as follows:
St. Louis, July 24. The Populist have
decided to nominate the vice-president
first. If it is not Sewall. what shall we
do? I favor your declination in that
event. James K. Jones.
Mr. Bryan certainly did not hesitate
long In determining the character of hla
reply. Senator Jones, within sixteen
minutes after he sent his message, had
the following reply handed to him In
his room at the Planter's hotel:

you fully. If Sewall Is not nominated

delegate of that body were fully In ac
cord with the sentiments entertained
by the convention, and earnestly desired
to bring about the reforms which are
so necessary to the people of the United
The report was agreed to without de
bate or division.
Senator Jones came forward and read
the platform and addresses to the Deo
pie of the United States as previously
sent in these dispatches. The several
declarations In favor of free coinage
ana denouncing bond Issues were at
tentively listened to and provoked
much applause. The recommendation
that Bryan and Sewall be nominated
brought the whole convention to their
feet with cheers and many demonstra
tlons of delight. Francl C. Larno. of
Oregon, moved that the resolutions be
adopted as read.
Mr. Pace, of Nebraska, moved, that
the convention proceed to the nomina
tion of a candidate for president and
vice president. A number of sugges
tlons and subordinate motions followed
without action. General Weaver ex
plained why the committee on resolu
tions, had recommended the nomina
tion instead of endorsement,, which was
to meet the exigencies cf the situation
in several states, a here nomination
was necessary to enable the silver elec
toi s to be voted for.
BRYAN'S NAME INTRODUCKD.
Mr. Puce's motion was adopted and
Mr. Little, of Abilene, Kansas, was rec
ognized to place Mr. Bryan's name be
fore the convention. He did so In a
graceful, at times forceful, speech.
"Is lite so dear, is peace so scarce
that it must be purchased at the rate cf
7262.000,000 a yturV" he asked In the
midst of a period portraying tlie evils of
the gold standard. He Epoke of the
products of the farm going, like salva
tion,, without money and without price.
The Republican party hud McKInley
upon it platform, but It hud U rover
Cleveland In It.
Thirty-six years ago the people of th s
country looked to the west and it gave
them Abraham Lincoln. Again, the
people look to the same section, and
again it gives them a man, the pro
duct of Its highest civilisation and de
velopment, a man like Lincoln, the
friend of man in the name of our sis
ter state of Nebraska, I name to this
convention as its candidate for presi
dent of the United States, William J.
Bryan. L. C. Pace, of Nebraska, sec
onded the nomination. He said tne
contest between the money power and
the people of the United States was
now on. Nine out of every ten similar
contests In the past had resulted there
for for the money power. Chicago had
developed a man, however, a gentle
man, full of character, firm for the
right, born of the people. The result
In this case cannot be In doubt.
Senator McQinley, of Michigan, made
a seconding speech. The next speech
was by Mrs. Stansburg, of Colorado,
whose statement that "protected" wo
men of this country received seven
cents for making a shirt that a China
man was paid ten cents for Ironing
and the women of Colorado would vote
for the silver dollar, letting those who
would vote for the gold dollar, rice and
rats, evoked the wildest applause.
Mr. Doud, of Missouri, moved that
the roll of states be called and the
vote recorded. Another delegate moved
that the nomination be made by accla
mation. This seemed to strike the con
vention favorably and it was carried
unanimously by a rising vote.
A WAVE OP ENTHUSIASM.
The announcement by the chair waa
followed by a great wave of enthus
iasm, rolling over the convention hall,
carrying the delegates into chairs with
umbrellas, hats and handkerchief In
the air. A large picture of Bryan
placed in front of the chairman's desk,
together with a regulation silk flag,
increased the tumult, and it rose to it
highest pitch when Miss Llllle Pierce,
the young elocutionist, who read the
declaration of Independence on the
opening day. seized the large yellow
banner of the California Bimetallic
league and marched around the hall,
followed by the delegate In single file.
And all the while the band played "Hall
Columbia" and "Yankee Doodle."
When the delegates began to quiet
down after a ten minutes demonstra
tion it was renewed by the familiar
cry "Whats the matter with Bryan."
and the response, "he's all right." Or
der being restored, Mr. Baker, of Cali
fornia, moved to proceed to the nomina
tion of a candidate for vice president
and another delegate moved that It be
done by acclamation. This was likely
to be done without the formality of a
nomination, but sufficient quiet was fin
ally secured to enable Alex. Troupe, of
Connecticut, a personal friend of Mr.
Sewall to put him formally before the
convention. The nomination was rec
ommended by Mr. Niles, of Ohio, a
friend of the candidate, he said, and of
his fathers. There never was a Sewall.
he said, who would not go to the stake
for principle, and Arthur Sewall was a
fitting mate for the grand man. Bryan.
The nomination of Mr. Sewull V'as made
by acclamation, and In diminished
measure of spirit and time the demon
stration following Bryan's nomination
was repeated with variations.
The band played "America" and a
verse of that grand old hymn was sung
by the delegates and spectators. Chair
man St. John was at last enabled to
announce that Arthur Sewall. of Maine,
had been nominated as the convention
candidate for vice president. The con
vention at 5.30, after declining to pass
a number of cumt'llmentary resolutions,
adjourned sine die.
