Chicago june following plat form was adopted in the Greenback National convention last night without de Bate civil government should guarantee the divine right of every labourer the results of Bis toil thus enabling producers of wealth to provide themselves with the Means of physical Comfort and the facilities for mental social and moral culture and we condemn As Unwor thy to our civil nution the barbarism which imposes on wealth producers a state of Perpet Ual Drudgery. As the Price of base animal exertion notwithstanding the enormous increase of productive Power the Universal introduction of labor saving machinery Aud the discovery of new agents for the increase of wealth. The task of the labourer is scarcely lightened the hours 01 toil no but Little shortened few producers Ere lifted from poverty to Comfort and pecuniary Independence. The associated monopolies the International Syndicate and other favored classes desire More Money and cheap labor Strong government and hence a weak people. The value of Money has been the Means or dividing society into hostile classes of unjust i distribution of the products of labor and of the building up of monopolies of associated capital endowed with Power to Confederate private property it has kept Money p scarce and the Scarcity of Money enforces debt Trade and Public and corporation Loans. Debt engenders usury and usury ends in the bankruptcy of the Borrower. Other results Are de ranged markets uncertainty in manufacturing Enterprise and agriculture precarious and intermit taut employment for the labor Indus trial work increasing pauperism and crime and the consequent intimidation and disfranchisement of the producer and rapid declination into a corporate feudalism there fore we declare the right to make and Issue Money is a Sovereign Power to be maintained by the people for the common Benefit. The Dele gation of this right to corporations is a surren Der of the Central attribute of Sovei dignity void of constitutional Sanction conferring upon a subordinate irresponsible Power absolute Dominion Over Industry and Commerce All Money we bluer metallic or paper should be issued and its volume collected and controlled by the government and not by or through Bank ing corporations and when so issued should be a full Legal tender for All debts Public and private.
