Transcript The "paramount issue" was a change and the country got it. This same Democratic platform declared: "We believe in a free ballot and a fair count." To this was added: "Asserting tho equality of all men before the law, we hold that it is the duty of the government in its dealings with the people to mete out equal and exact justice to all citizens of whatever nativity, race, color or persuasion, religious and political." SUPPRESSING NEGRO SUFFRAGE. And then began the movement resulting in the adoption of state constitutional amendments in the South to suppress negro suffrage, in the framing of election laws to nullify Republican suffrage, white or black, in Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri. Tariff reduction was the "paramount issue" in the platform of 1888 and on it the Democratic party went out of power. In 1892 the "paramount issue" was tariff reform in more pronounced form. "We denounce Republican protection as a fraud, a robbery of the great majority of the people for the benefit of the few," the platform declared. "We declare it to be a fundamental principle of the Democratic party that the federal government has no constitutional power to impose and eollect tariff duties, except for the purposes of revenue only." Then came the • 'paramount issue" of 16 to 1, and now the ' 'paramount issue" of imperialism. Of the long list of ■ 'paramount issues" a single one has been given trial by the nation. It has been repudiated with an emphasis that has to all appearances shelved it forever. % EXPANSION MAP orrm UNITED STATES. ^SaS&^SS^ HT333Ufrr4GZEI-_
