The democratic platform of 1882 is a curious documont. nail ihould bo preserved in tho national imiuum ns a curiosity for future generations. THE THIRD PARTY. B.BPUBLIOAH CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTION. A delogato convention of tlio republicans of tnu fourth oougrcsMonal district of tlio sluto of lows, will be hold at Now Hampton, Iowa, on Wednesday, August 10th, at 1 o'clock p. m., for tho purpose of nominating a candidate for representative in congress for said district and for such other business as mar properly bo considered. The basis of representation will bo ono dolognte to each county and one ndditionnl delegate to each* 100 votes or frnotion over 00 cast for Hon. H. C. Wheeler for governor, as follows, lo-urit: Allr.niakce 1!)

THE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM. Already, before the campaign has had time to' open, tho animus of tho democrats is plainly visible. They do not iiope to elect thoir candidates by A majority of tho electoral vote. The straw they cling to is tho bare possibil­ ity'that through their assistance and engineering, and Die lavish HSO of money in such states as Kansas, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Colorado theso states may bo carried for the peoples' ticket, and thus throw the election into the house of representatives, where Cleveland would be certain of election. This must be a humiliating work for a groat party, and still more humiliating for tho peoples' party. It would bo far more honorablo for tho lattor to vote for Cleveland direct and thus show to the world just where they stand. But Mvon this schemo will not work. Harrison will carry Now York and Indiana, as well as tho stales above named, and will be triumphantly electett in spite of all the combinations that may bo arrayed against him. T HE democratic platform says "wo ure opposod to all sumptuary laws," which plates that parly squarely against any restriction of tho liquor tralilc whatever. A license law is as ninth a sumptuary law as is prohibition. Wo did not suppose that any considerable number of pooplo at thi day were opposod to license or any other control of tho traffic. Hut such seems to bo the attitude of the national domocraey. We don't boliove the people) will socond any such motion. We aro fully Rware that it is a clirou- ic habit for the opposite party to belittle and assail tho platform of the other party, no mailer what it coutains or what line of policy it sets forth. This must bo expected to a certain extent 60 long as parties go beforo tlio public for acceptance or rejection on tho principles tlioy enunciate in their address to the voters in tho form of platforms. And from a party standpoint this is just, if honestly and impartially done, because these platforms make up tho 1931103 that divido the parties, and without those criticisms of tlio "organic law" of tho sevoral parlies tlioro can be no intelligent discussion of tho questions at issuo. It is the fault of all parties that their declarations of principle/' aro by far too length, 1 ,' and verbose The slump speech in party platforms should at once and forever be discarded, and conventions confined to a clear nnd concise statement of tho issues upon which they ask tho suffrages of tho people. A half ooltiinn is ample space in which to parliculurizo tlio differences that exist between tho two great parties, as in reality there are but two questions lliiu really divide the parties, tariff and honest elections versus free trado and fraudulent elections. Everything else'is merely tilling nnd is irrelevant. Tho republican platform was much too long, but the democratic) announcement is more th:-. 11 twice as long as that. It is no wonder that Henri Watterson characterized it an "extraordinary e»say." It takes two columns of solid nonpareil in which to givu it tc tho world, and whon it is digostod it is simply a pettifogger's harangue. Kvon the tariff plauk, as it was giveu to the convention by the coaimitloe was a straddle of tho highest dimensions, and it took a rod hot war to expunge it and get in its place ''a tariff for rovonuo only" plank, which was only adoptod in the ond by l »ss than a two -thirds voto of tho convention. And tho most ludicrous thing about it is the Clovelimd leaders wore tho ones who favored tlio straddlo, and were only whipped into "rovonuo only" by such anti-Cleveland mon as Wntter- BOU and Sprlogor. Tlioro can bo 110 question but Cleveland hlmsolf desired a more liberal construction of tho tariff question titan WAS finally worked into tho platform, knowing that the pooplo just now are not in a frame ot mind to have all the new industries paralyzed Which are springing up all ovor tho onnntry as a result of the McKinloy bill. The election of a presldout and congress, if such a tiling wore possible, nt this junoluro, on a tariff for revonue only platform, would precipitate such a panlo and monetary revulsion as this country lias novnr seen. The democrats themselves will not daro do It. ftuocoss to them at such a prico would be tho worst fuilme Unit they ovor have oxpeiieneod. The prosont oongress has fully roalizod this, else they would have made n genuine tariff reform rec- ol'ii instoiid of frlttorlng away their time la feeble amendments regarding a few articles rather than attacking the law ouihe. Another wonderful thing In the platform is the love evinced for the soldiers and the desire to liayo them pensioned, forgetting that when their present candidate was president his raosl oxaotlng labor was vetoing pension bills, thus making a veto record surpassing all his predecessors combined. But the "force bill" U the ghost that frightened tho plutform committee iiiost. They oonjured It with the "oon- Hlltuilou" and "tho laws under It" to dbwn, nnd yet they were not sure that it' WHS laid. Nice tliiug, this invoking the bonsliiiition to defeat itself! There ja'ndjpttft of the constlttoSioo more binding than the amendment securing equal political rights to all mon» If tnere is no powor In tho constitution uudor which laws 01m be eoaoted to preserve itself ilion that dooument Is nlOfdy a'rope c»f sand, beneath the ros< {*ot uJ'ffty oitizep.
