Transcript S, " We denounce as disturbing to business the Republican threat to re- ■tore the McKinley law." 9. " Until tbe money question is settled we are opposed to any agitation for further change* in our tariff laws." 10* u Tbe most efficient way to protect American labor is to prevent the importation of foreign panper labor." 11. " We denounce the profligate waste of money wrung from the people by oppressive taxation." 12. " We declare that it is the duty of Congress to use all of the Coa^tlt^i- tional power to the end that wealth may bear its due proportion of the expenses of the Government." 13. " We especially object to government by injunction, as a new and highly dangerous form of oppression. 14. " We approve of the refusal of the Fifty-third Congress to p*ss the Pacific Railroad Funding bill, and we denounce the effort of the present Kepub- lican Congress to enact a similar measure." 16. " Sympathy to the people of Cuba." 16. " Enlistment and service should be deemed conclusive evidence against disease or disability before enlistment." 17. " Opposed to life tenure in the public service." 15. " No man should be eligible to a third term of the Presidential office." 19. " Consolidation of our leading railroad systems and formation of trusts and pools require a stricter control by the Federal government of those arteries of eommerce." 20. " Admission of the Territories." 21. "Improve the Mississippi river and other great waterways." Some of the "principles" of 1896 were reaffirmed and indorsed without specific mention. Others were reiterated in the former language or amplified. The convention at Kansas City declared for— 44 The immediate restoration of the free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold at the present legal ratio of 16 to 1 without waiting for the consent of any other nation." The form adopted in 1896 was " without the aid or consent of any other nation." 44 We are opposed to this private corporation paper circulated as money." In this form the Kansas City convention repeated its hostility te> national banks, demanding " the retirement of the national bank notes as fast as this government's paper (greenbacks) or silver certificates can be substituted for them." 44 We are opposed to government by injunction." This was repeated from the Chicago platform, although the question has been passed upon by the United States Supreme Court. 44 We earnestly protest against the Republican departure which has Involved us in so-called world politics, including the diplomacy of Europe and the intrigue and land-grabbing in Asia." This is supposed to be aimed at the policy of an open door for trade in China, and against the policy of the Republican party to maintain the integrity of the Chinese Empire as against encroaohm«ats of European Powers. ^ < TH AggS [rr& J COUNCIL p
