quarur of a century the finances of the people of the state of Illinois have been in the hands of the re publican Every year more taxes arc levied than are called for by the laws passed by the It is time for a in order that there may be an overhauling of the We denounce the republican party of Illinois for its broken promises and pledges made to the farmers and laborers of the in not so equalizing the taxes as to compel large corporations and trusts pay their equal proportion of county and municipal as a crime against the farmers and laborers that calls loudly for We demand of the state board of equalization an honest enforce ment of the law as interpreted by the supreme in order that various cor porations of the state shall no longer es cape the payment of their just propor

Knowing that there is no calling in the state so hazardous as that of a coal we demand the enactment of a law abolishing forever the system of truck the enactment of a law for the examination of mine the en actment of a law providing for the exam ination of stationary engineers the en actment of a law providing for weighing coal before screening the enactment of mining laws so as to provide for inspect ors of the respective inspection districts or some other competent person to act as sealer of weights and measure for the adjustment of the scales upon which the coal is weighed at the We are in favor of an eighthour work We cannot find language strong enough to condemn the McKinley tariff tax considering it as a crime and conspiracy against the toilers of Which is intended to impoverish the masses and benefit the very small class that are already We recog nize in it the consummation of an unjust agreement between the republican party and the manufacturers aud others pro control of the office of state treasurer the public moneys of Illinois have been de posited in banks outside of the state with out profit to this state or the The democratic party pledges itself that all deposits of state funds shall be in Illinois banks and that the interest thereon shall be paid into the state treasury and that such legislation as is necessary shall be enacted to carry this

unjust class legislation and we deny the right of con gress to tax the whole people to raise money to pay subsidy or bounty to this or any other private as there has long been a combination between the publishers of school books to avoid competition and extort exhorbitant we favor the preparation and publication of a series of school books and furnishing the same to school children of the state at actual That the democratic party in convention heartily en dorse the public school system of the state of Illinois and it de clares that the parental right to direct the educationot children should forever remain invio lable and that the provisions of the law of commonly known as the compul sory education impairing that inviolable should be at once re Respecting this subject we adopt the following propositions and hold them to be selfevident truths To determine aud direct the education of a child is the natural rights of its There arises out of this par ental right a duty to provide such educa When who by natural or human law owes a duty to fails to perform that the slate can a en join or compel that performance b puuish for nonperformance c supply the lack where the injury to society by the nonperformance is wrongfully per sisted Wise statesmenship encour ages general popular but this does not mean or require unjust or un necessary interference with those who educate their children according to best of their ability and conformably to tue condition in the life of the parent and Compulsory education in the sense that parents who violate or neglect their parental duty may be compelled to its performance or punished for nou performauie is Compulsary education in sense of controlling or seeking to con dislodging from their rightful those parents who are discharging their parental duties commesurately with the state of life of the parent and is not allowable even to the For the education of his chil dren one parent may select a another may select a private or denomi national school still another may fur nish proper education without aid of any school and each of these in so doing ex ercises the right protected by the law of the land as well as by the law of nature and for doing which he need offer neither excuse nor The public or private or de nominational schools arc in law neither related nor are they subordinate one to the other nor need they be We favor and pledge ourselves to the enactment of the statutes To require parents who arc not performing their duty in respect to the education of their children to do To correct incorrigible truants by providing means for their amendment to minimize the evils of truancy by send ing truant children to such school as parents may To prohibit child labor with all its debasing THE CHEAT LAUD Attorney
