Transcript "MILITARISM." "We oppose militarism. It means conquest abroad and Intimidation ana oppression at home." The United States has just passed through a foreign war and is closing up an insurrection in a part of the Philippines, while maintaining peace and good order until Cuba can establish her own government, and at the same time participating with other civilized nations in the rescue of American officials and American missionaries from massacre in China. The fulfullment of the duty of the government in China, in the Philippines, in Cuba, and the maintenance of the military establishment on a peace footing at home are being accomplished with an army e*f less than 100,000 men. There is no proposition or thought to go beyond this limit. An army of 100,000 men in proportion to the population and growth is smaller than the army of 25,0(30 was for more than a generation after it was established. There is no militarism in this country, nor any tendency in that direction. There cannot be. The Constitution says: "Congress shall have power to raise and support armies, but no appropriation for that use shall be for a longer term than two years." "The National Guard of the United States should ever be cherished." For the hypocrisy of this let the treatment by Republican States and Legislatures of the militia be compared with that of Democratic States. 44 We pledge the Democratic party to an unceasing warfare in notion, state and city against private monopoly in every form." The only trust regulations enacted by Congress have been when the Republicans were in power. As to States, here again the records of Republican and Democratic Legislatures may be compared profitably. ••We condemn the Dingley tariff law as a trust-breeding measure." The tariff legislation by Democrats which preceded the present administration was dictated by corporations to such an extent that it was officially denounced by the Democratic President and was a scandal to honest Democrats. ♦» We reaffirm and indorse the principles of the National Democratic platform adopted at Chicago in 1896. These principles were enunciated as follows: 1. " Maintenance of the rights of the States." 2. " The first coinage law passed by Congress under the Constitution made the silver dollar the monetary unit, aud admitted gold to free coinage at a ratio based upon the silver dollar unit." 8. u We are unalterably opposed to gold monometallism." 4. "We demand the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at the present legal ratio of 16 to 1, without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation." 5. " We demand that the standard silver dollar shall be full legal tender, equally with gold, for all debts,public and private." 0. " We are opposed to surrendering to the holders of obligations of the United States, the option reserved by law to the Government of redeeming such obligations in either silver coin or gold coin." 7. " We demand that the power to issue money be taken from the Sational banks."
