Transcript DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM The Democratic party, in National Convention assembled, adopts the following declaration to the end that the people of the United States may both realize the achievements wrought by four years of Democratic administration and be apprised of the policies to which the party is committed for the further conduct of national affairs: Record of Achievements We indorse the administration of Woodrow Wilson. It speaks for itself. It is the best exposition of sound Democratic policy at home and abroad. We challenge comparison of our record, our pledges and our constructive legislation with those of any party of any time.

We have protected the rights of the laborer against the unwarranted issuance of writs of injunction, and hare guaranteed to him the right of trial by jury in cases of alleged contempt committed outside of the presence of the court. We have advanced the parcels post to genuine efficiency, enlarged 21
