The first platform ever adopted at a national convention In this country wae the Democratic platform adopted at Baltimore, Md., March, 1832, upon •which Andrew Jackson was nominated and elected. This platform has nothing to say on tho money question. The Democratic national convention held In Baltimore in May, 183G, nominated Van Buren and elected him, but made no platform whatever. At the Democratic national convention held in. Baltimore in 1840, which renomlnated Van Buren, the platform opposed national banks, but makes no mention of the silver question in nny way. The Democratic platform adopted at Baltimore in 1844, when James <K, Polk was nominated, also opposed national banks, but failed to say that they favored for the free coinage of silver. The Democratic convention of 1S-1S held at Baltimore, nominated Lewis Case, of Michigan, and adopted the Polk platform and indorsed his administration, -but again forgot to say anything about free coinage of silver. The Democratic convention met lu, Baltimore in 1S52, and. nominated Franklin Pierce, adopted the platform or*lS4S, but did not express themselves m any way as to .the- free coinage of Bllver. Tho Democratic convention held at Ciacinnati in 1S50, nominated Jarneo Buchanan for president, hut said no thin! in regard to the silver'question'in the platform, but opposed national banks. In 1SGO there were two national Democratic conventions, one nominating Douglas and the other nominating Breckenridge, and, while they differed in some respects, they, both opposed national banks and neither had anything to say in tho advocacy of tlio free coinage of silver at any ratio. The Democratic convention held at Chicago in 1804, nominated McClellan, but the platform makes no mention of the money question. In 1SGS the national Democratic convention was held in New York and nominated Seymour and made no dfic- larr.tion whatever for free silver, but did Bay in the platform, plank 5, "Dee currency for the government and the people, the laborer and officeholder, tile pensioner and soldier, the producer a"«l bondholder." In 1872 the Democratic convention heM in Baltimore nominated Horace Grteley, but made no mention of tho money question In any respect, ffhe utralghtout wing ol the Democratic party that would not support Republican' Greoley bold a convention In Louisville, Ky., in 1872, and aleo made no mention of the money question, but one of the planks in their platform is worth quoting to the Bryan -wing ot the present Democracy. It is as follows: "Resolved, That -we proclaim to tho world that principle Is to be preferred to power; that tho Democratic party is held together by time-honored principles, which they will never exchange for all the offices that presidents can confer. We .welcome an eternal minority, rather than a majority purchased by the abandonment of our .principles." • The Democratic national convention held In St. Louis in June, 1876,-nominated Samuel J. Tilden of New York for -president. This wae .wHat was called the "reform convention" of the Democratic party. The first plank in the platform reads: "Reform is necessary to establish a sound currency, restore the public credit and 'maintain the national honor." The platform then proceeds to denounce the Republican party for not making any advance, toward resumption of specie payments. But not one word is In that platform mentioning or advocating the free coinage ot silver. Now remember, this was In '7C, the first, national convention held since the alleged "crime of '73," and there is not one lino, not one word, In that great reform platform that either mentions or condemns the "act of 1S73." Now, if tbe "act of '73" was a "crime" why did not they denounce it then and put a plank In their plat-. • form In favor o£ the free coinage of Bllver? If it Is a "crime"..now, it was then -and tho Democratic'party should be chastised for Us stupidity in noi 'discovering it until now. In 1880 the Democratic national convention met in Cincinnati and nominated General W, S. Hancock for president but the Platform there, adopted, flld not say anything about the,"crime «f '73 V nor do tho records show that any delegate In. that convection, or before the committee on platform, offered any resolution advocating; or In- flovelng the free coinage of Bllver. •'. The third, plank of the Hancock. platform rends ai-follows:••.• • •, \ SILVER CROSSES. "FACTORY CLOSED BY THE UNCERTAINTY'" 1 "' ,r?C, 'm sfMl • 3F £~y^' B S..P/5 ^"t:/ **~Z\ 3 ^-OS-"V-- / ~ < ' '---- a «*$*%?/•'&& ' "Home rule, honest money—Tfce strict maintenance of the public faith, consisting of gold, silver and paper convertible into coin, on demand; the • strict maintenance <jl the public faith, sts.te and national, and a tariff for revenue 6nly." •!n July, 1884, the Democratic party mot In Chicago arid nominated Grover Cleveland. Although the greenback party had four y.ears prior thereto, in the city of Chicago, pronounced in favor o£ unlimited free coinage of silver,, nnd gone down in awful defeat, no declaration was inserted in that Democratic platform favoring free silver, dor did they condemn or denounce the "crime of '73." But. the platform dlJ declare: "We believe in honest money, the cold and silver money of the constitution, and a circulating medium con- Hrtible into such money without loss." Remember, now, silver had been demonetized eleven years and we had been through one panic and tho Democratic party had been unsuccessful in all national elections, and the Republican party was chiefly responsible for the "act ol '73;" still the Democratic party did not make a' declaration for the free coinage, of silver. In 1SSS the Democratic national convention met in St. Louis and renomi r.ated Mr. Cleveland and unanimously indorsed his former administration. Tho "act of '73" had been a law then fifteen years and noi.one word was eaid in that platform against it, or about it, and no promise was helu out to the people for the free coinage of silver upon any basis. Tbe Democratic national convention of 1S32 met in Chicago and nominated Mr Cleveland the third time, his opposition to free silver being well known at the time, as he had just prior to that time -written his famous .letter, in which he defined his position in a manly statesmanlike manner, in no uncertain language. The seventh plank .of Lhe platform of '92 denounced the Republican party, for passing the "Sherman' law," which law practically utilized .the silver' we produce in the United States, calling it a.makeshift, fraught with many possible dangers. They did declare for gold and'silver as "standard money," but declared that the dollar unit o£ coinage of buU metals sUould be of .edual intrinsic and exchangeable value, or "for the adjustment of same through international agreement," or by such "safeguards of legislation as would insure the parity ot the two metals," and the "equal purchasing power of each." This -was nineteen years after the passage of the "crime of '73," and there Is not one word in that platform denouncing that act nor is there a line In It advocating the free coinage :«f silver. A certain enthusiastic delegate introduced a free coinage resolution In that convention and it only received 17 votes to 913 Bgalnsflt. Mr. Cleveland running upon that platform received tho largest electoral vote ever given to a. presidential candidate. Thus it'Is .plainly seen that the Democratic -party never has been in favor of the free coinage of silver, until'this year, -when the national convention was dominated by Altgeld, Tlllman & Co. We are constantly hearing this wing of'the Democratic .parto drumming'Into the ears of their audf- tors that they ere the Democratic party and.that they represent the true principles of ''Jeffersonian -Democracy " This.cry may be so in some- respects, but certainly not so aa re- cards the financial question. In 1806 one Thomas Jefferson was president of the United States,- Ho found that under free coinage of silver gold was appreciating and silver was depreciating; so he ordered the * nts of the United States to cease the fice coinage of silver inuefl'nUely, nnd at h same time said: "The proportion between the values of silver and gold is a mercantile problem altogether. Just principles wll lead us to disregard tho tegal proposition'; to inquire, into the market price ol gold .in the' several metrics with which.we shall ;,roba- &•&&&**(*(*(% 'vj.j£ " Pousse Pat£...

If Democracy Is to measure its standard by Mr. Jefferson, surely ,Mr. Cleveland represents the true Democracy, for certainly Jefferson was never a free ell- Terlte. __ __ MORAL VICTORIES. Defeat*- Which tho World In Proud to Celebrate With Honor. The celebration at Galcsburg, Ills., by the Republicans of the famous joint debates between Lincoln and Douglas In 1858 commemorated a defeat. These two great champions of Republicanism -and Democracy were candidates for the United States senate. Their joint debates attracted the attention ot the country to a remarkable degree. But it was Mr, Douglas and not Mr. Lincoln, that was elected, to tho senate by the legislature chosen that year. Why then do the Republicans cele- brate-thls great debate of nearly forty years ago? Why does tbe proud shaft rise from Bunker Hill, a spot where tbe patriot army was -defeated and driven from the field, after losing one o£ its most cherished leaders? That, too. commemorates a defeat. Mr. Lincoln was beaten in 1S5S, but he was elected president in I860. He was elected president in 1SCO because of the Tvork he did in 1S5S. But for the fame acquired in his groat contest wltn lie "Little Giant" o£ Illinois, be would not have received tho Rep'.i'jKcan nomination for the presidency. In that defeat he laid the foundation o£ all that part oC his. career -which chiefly endeared him to his countrymen. The patriot army was beaten at Bunker Hill, but it demonstrated in s° triumphant a manner its capacity to stand up against British regulars that patriotic- hearts everywhere took courage Instead of a discouragement, it was an inspiration for the American cause And that cause which was lost at Bunker Hill- was ultimately triumphant, .Bunker Hill foreshadowed Yorktown. . • • There is a lesson in this for the day and : the -hour. Tho patriot army of Democrats, under-their matchless lead- ore Palmar and Buckner. are waging what may prove a losing fight against those who call themselves "regulars. Thev must maka a good fight, tor this is. not the last ditch. The steadiness and valor which they display in this unequal -contest will win in the long run we may have to celebrate a defeat but it will be a defeat that as the harbinger of victory-LouisvMla^Cour- ler-Journal. __ Gold Dooi Not Demand Coinage. Mr Bryan said at Portland: "We are for gold as well as silver, but hold that gold should not demand a monopoly of coinage." Gold does not demand coinage. .It is worth as much in the market aa at the mint, 'quite regardless of our mint valuation. London, Paris, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Calcutta, Shanghai and Yo.koha.ma would gladly take all our goia. They clamor and compete for H. It has a world- value. Whatever we coin is more to the benefit of. the government and the country 'than to the gold producers. Tbe silver trust la in a very different position. It demands the privilege of taking 51 cents' worth of its bullion to the mint and having it stamped as a legal tender, 100-cent dollar at the people's expfcnse.-New York World.
