Transcript Democratic Platforms Overruling the Supreme Court—False Premises About the Philippines— Reaffirmed Declarations of 1896 — Reiterated Hostility to National Banks—Government by Injunction Again Denounced—"Immediate" Free Coinage of Silver Demanded. The Democratic platform adopted at Kansas City says: 44 We declare again that all governments instituted among men derive their just powers from the consent of the governed; that any government net based upon the consent of the governed is a tyranny."

The Porto Rico law was the subject of longer and graver consideration than any other matter of legislation before Congress at the late •estsion. It oonferred upon the Porto Ricans a larger nreaeure of home
