Reno Evening Gazette (Newspaper) - September 12, 1890, Reno, Nevada JOB WORK The Neatest, The Best, At the Gazette Office. ENVELOPES Printed than the Cheapest. VOL. XXIX. RENO, WASHOE COUNTY, NEVADA, FRIDAY, SKPTEMBEK 12, 1890. NJO. 141. THE DEMOCRATS. .Theodore, Winters for Governor. THE TICKET HOT VET COMPLETE R. Sadler of Eureka for Lieu- tenant-Governor. Convention Adjourned Until The Convention met this morning at 10 o'clock, and wan called to order bj tho temporary Chairfftan. The minutes of yesterday were read by the Secretary and approved. The rejwrtof the Committee on Cre- dentials was rgad and adopted. The Committee on Permanent Or- ganization and Order of Business re- jxjrted, recommending the temporarj otlioera for permanent officers aud the order of business. The matter o! tho assessment'of candidates created some discusbion, u low members being opposed to the amounts reported by the committee. On motion oi Hon. G. VV. Cassidy, that part of tho report referring to a eecret ballot was stricken out. On motion of Hon. W. E. F. Deal, tho assessment of each and every can- didate was fixed at ten dollars. Mr. Kelley o( HumboWt seconded tho motion, suggesting tbat, from tin- outlook, it might yet be necessary to give a premium to get candidates to fill all tho offices. Tho motion fixing the fees at was adopted, after which tho report of the committee as amended adopted. The Committee on Platform and Itesolutions through their Chairman, Oon. R. M. Clarke, reported as follows: The Democratic party of Nevadii again proclain.s its devotion to Dem- ocratic principles, pledges itu fidel- ity to elective iiiHiiiutiuim, a govern- ment of the people, honestly admin- istered by Representatives of the people, freely chosen, without bribery, intimidation or corruption. The de- voted and resolute advocate of popuhii the friend and defender of the poor and weak, against and usurpations of the rich and strong; the advocate of the equality of all be fore the law. The Democratic party is the relent- less foe of oppression and wrong, and tho uncompromising enemy of olies and privileged classes. We art- io favor of electing honest and rapa'Ot- citizens of the State to otrico; of economy fidelity, and restraining extravagance and corruption of secur- ing a free and intelligent exorcise c f ttie ballot; of restraining corporate abuses and usurpations; of destroying monopolies and mists; of preventing class legislation and special privileges; of redwing, adjusting and equalizing taxation of securing equal civil rights ami privileges to all; of fos- tering the industries of the State and encouraging the devplopmeut of its re- sources. The Democratic party of Nevada, as in every State in the Union, is unal- terably opposed to Chinese immigra- tion. The restriction act, mainly by Democratic is about to expire, and it is the duty of Con- gress to enact a Jaw perpetually ex- cluding Chinese from the United States. We declare for the free and unlim- ited Coinage of standaid silver dollars of the present weight and fineness, to be a legal tender for all debts, public and private, equally with gold, and the Democratic party throughout the whole country is in accord with us. Wo insist upon the rigid enforce nient of tho long and short haul fea- ture of the Interstate Commerce Act. The Republican parly has had con- trol of this State Government evei since its admission into the Onion, about twenty-six years. The Demo- cratic party'never has had control of tho executive and legislative depart- ments nt any one time. Therefore the liepulihcan party is for whatever evil has resulted from bad laws, or from the failure to pass good laws. At the end of this long period the people of the State find themselves face to face with a larger expense, to be borne by fewer people, and a smaller amount of assessable property, careless and extravagant financial methods and measures characterize tho State administration; necessary amendments to the constitution haye failed of passage, either through ne- glect, ignorance or of purpose... Up to this time no practical means of storing the waters of the streams of tho State, which annually rim to waste, has been provided or proposed. only be done by and through the State. We favor the acquisition of tho publio from the National Government, and the sale of such lands to ruii-e the means to provide funds of sutlK-ient amount to construct permanent stor.uje reservoirs and means of irrigation, to be owned and controlled by the people of the State. We denounce the present Slate Re- publican Government for parsing the ill-adviped and disastrous law regu- lating the use of water for irrigation and for settling the priority of rights thereto. It liaa involved the owners .of water rights io useless and ex pen- sive litigation, BO onerous, tedious and ruinous Unit the farmers of this Suite will be reduced to bankruptcy in pav- ing for attorney's fees alone. >Ve favor the repeal ot this law. We favor the Australian ballot sys- tem as enacted by the State of chn Kelts. We favor the calling of a. Constitu- tional Convention to revise the present Constitution, to the end that retrench- ment in State and County Government may be effected, and recommend the Central Committees of the several counties to cau.se Democratic tickets to printed with the worda Constitu- tional in the proper place thereon. We are in favor of the election of United States Senators by the people, and earnestly iirne the adoption of such an amendment to the Constitu- tion of the United States as will accom- plish that result. We most cordially invite all citizens w ho consider the free coinage of silver OH of greater to Nevada than-a high protective tariff for the benefit of KasSirn nuuiufavtures; Mid til who are weary of corporate dicta- nun and boss such as was HO kdurinulv apparent in the late Repub- lican State Convention and all who disapprove of bribery tit elections, and are willing to make an effort to purge Nevada of the unsavory name of "rotten- to joip with us in indorsing the urinciples and electing the candidates of this Convention. We accuse and arraign the Republi- can party, State and National, for every crime posbible to committed against a free people. When the war, waged to prevent States fiom seceding, ended, for the shameless purpose of perpetuating its power, it falsely and contrary to principles upon which jhe war was waged, assumed and de- clared that the rebelling States were ciot members of the Union; deprived them of self-government, erected mili- tary despotisms over them established he rule of the bayonet; subverted the the civil powers; deprived the inhabi- tants of civil and political rights; and finally set up carpet-bag governments; put the ballot in the bands of the negro, and, through jus ignorance and prejudice, and the criminal rapacity of Republican leaders, plunged the already impoverished country into 000 of useless debt. After [MJiice was'restored, and when the pec- pie were borne down by debts, bur- dened b> heavy taxes to maintain the war, it doubled import duties, in- creased internal tuxes, contracted the volume of currency, demonetized sil vor, required greenbiick bonds and obligati ris to ba paid in gold, and thus fictitiously depreciated the value of money, debts, bonds and securities, and ifiultfplied the wealth of the bond holder, nionev lender and creditor, and increased the burdens of the debtor and the distress of the poor. When the Supremo Court of the United States, then the most august 4tid honored tribunal upon the earth, decided that greenbacks were not a lawful tender in payment of debts contracted before the enactment of the Greenback law, the Republican party, in the interest and upon the dictation of railroad corporations, and to per- mit them to pay their outstand- ing bonds in depreciated money, reorganized the Court, increased the number o! judges, appointed two railroad attorneys to the Supreme bench, upon the express agreement that they would reverse the decision previously rendered. It created and fosteied rings of speculators and swin- dlers, notably the "Indian ring." the the "Star Route Pohtul the "District of Columbia the Do Goher I'aveiuent the "Credit Mobilier the Contract, and Finance Committee the Gold and when de tected and exposed it defeated justice, protected the guilty wretches against the vengence of the law, and in some c.ises pardoned them out of the pani- tenliary; in others honored them with high otlice. it has filled the great offices of the people with demagogues and proton ders, and put the toga and ermine upon the shoulders of mountebanks and millionaires. It maintains a vicious caucus sys- tem, thereby subverting the manhood ami independence of our Representa- tives; it puts the Riiccetfs of the party above the good of the country and hap- piness of the people; it accepted bribes and was corrupted to rob the of their lands and grant them to railroad corporations. And to hold their political influence and support it refuses to forfeit land grants which are unearned, to enforce the payment of obligations overdo, and permits them to discriminate and extort in freights and fares, and to de- fraud and plunder the government and the people. To continue its hold upon the offices of the Government and its opportunity to plunder the public treasury, it menaced the country with war, de- frauded the people out of their choice for President, inaugurated Hayes, the defeated candidate, brought elective institutions into contempt, and con- sum mated the most stupendous crime perpetrated iv. ainxt a free people. It has created, fostered and enrichec monopolies and trusts, extended ex- piring patents, and enacted unjust and discriminative laws to destroy compe- tition and oppress unfavored industries. It has enacted exorbitant and unne- cessary taxes for the sole purpose 01 multiplying already enormous and ces-ive wealth. Under this vicious policy labor has been degraded, im- poverished and deprived its share o production, and capital has been favored and exempted from taxation To fintitiouslv increase the price o: domestic make the com- t mon necessaries of life dearer to the I it has excluded articles manufactured abroad, and destroy om commerce with foreign II I has invited the cheap labor of Europe and Asia to our shores, and emplcvec it in factory, furnace and mine, thus supplanting American wage-workers, subj.'ctinu thorn to tho competition of imported paupers, and reducing wages to starvation prices. A t this moment it is prolonging the session of Congress, and wasting the people's money in a frantic attempt to increase and perpetuate these wrongs, which have already become unbear- able. By the powpr of influence of bond holders, corporations, rings and trusts, and by the unstinted use of money to corrupt the ballo'. box and bribe elect- ore, it defeated the popular will and restored -itself co 'power in 1888, and to-day the instruments of this revolt- ing crime are its honored and trusted leaders. To increase its majority and aug- ment its power in the lower house of Congress it elected a conscienceless partisan despot, Speaker of the House; subverted the rules, practices and precedents of legislative bodies; de- clared quorums where none existed; deliberately 8tole the seats of two Sen- ators from Montana, and unseated and expelled the lawfully elected represent- atives of the people to increase a parti- san majority. It admitted Territories on the ground alone that they were Republi-. can in politics, and excluded other Territories of greater population than those admitted, on the that 'tliey send 'Democratic Senators and Representatives to the National When it succeeded to the control of the Government in March, 1889, the treasury was overflowing; under the economical and honest administration of Grover Cleveland there was more than one hundred and twenty-five million dollars in excess of all existing demands, and there was an annual in- coming surplus of nearly seventy-five million dollars. In less than two years this surplus has been wasted, the treasury depleted, and there is to-day an admitted deficiency of more than fifty millions of dollar', with the most extravagantly liberal pension laws that ever existed since governments began. It is" chiefly oc- cupied in passing special laws in the interest of partisan favorites, who have no claim under the general law. With an annual pension roll exceeding one hundred and fifty million's of greater than the cost of maintaining the standing armies of more than a hundred times than the cost of (he administration of Washington, and more than double the total cosi- of the Democratic adminis- tration of 1800, it has brought forward and advocates a service pension bill which will add one hundred and sev- enty-five'million of dollars a year to the already enormous burdens of the peowle. At the dictation of capital and to in- crease the value and power of money r demonetized silver in 1873, aad in 1890 defeated the passage of a Free Coinage bill by the threats of Harri- n and the machinations of Sherman, Windom, Reed and McKinley, and he cowardly acquiescence of Jones, Stewart and Bartine, our own Senators and Representative in Congress. The compromise silver bill reported ple. To correct these wrongs and reform these abuses is the mission of the Democratic party, and to the accom- plishment of tins great work we sol- em ply pledge ourselves, General R P. Keating, with words of approval, moved the adoption of the platform and resolutions as read, which motion was seconded. C. H Belknap of Storey moved to amend the report by striking out that part of it which approved o the culling of a Constitutional Convention, giving what he conceived cogent reasons why hm motion should prevail. The motion called forth a somewhat heated disctisnion, which was partici- pated in by Hon. H. Harris andG. W. The amendment was lost, and the report as read was adopted. Tuo Convention took a recess till 2 o'clock. Owing to the extraordinary length of the Democratic platform and (he late hour of its reception the GAZETTE was unable to ttive it even a cursory notice, but will have something to say about it in the near future.
