Ipavdrs Injunctions in La- , bor Disputes Only Unt Banking. der Restrictions. PROSECUTE TRUSTS For Revision »f Tariff—Want Valua­ tion of Railroads Made on Basis of Physical Property. To Guaran­ tee Deposits—Against Immigration of Asiatics. Convention Hall, Denver, July 10. —The platform was presented to the convention soon after midnight and adopted as follows: We, the representatives of the Democrats of the United States, in National convention assembled, reaf­ firm our belief in andTpledge our loy­ alty to the principals of the party. We rejoice at the increasing signs OJ . an awakening thorughout the country. The various investigations have traced graft and political cor­ ruption to the representatives of predatory wealth, and laid bare the unscrupulous methods by which they have debauched elections and preyed upon a defenceless public, through the subservient officials whom they have raised to place and power. The conscience of the Nation is now aroused to free the Government from the grip of those who \ have made made it a business asset of the favor-seeking corporations; it must become again a people's Government, and be administered in all its depart, ments according to the Jeffersonian maxim. \Kqual rights to all and special privileges to none.\ The courts of justice are the bul­ wark of our liberties, and we yield to none in our purpose to maintain their dignity. Our party has given to the bench a long line of distln gulshed Judges, who have added to the respedt and confidence to which this department must be jealousy maintained. We resent the attempt of the Republican party to ra'se false issues respecting the judiciary, it is an unjust reflection on a great body of our citizens to assume thai they lack respect for the courts. Questions of judicial practice have arisen especially In connection with industrial disputes. We deem that the .parties to all industrial proceed­ ings should be treated with rigid .lm- ' partiality, and that injunctions should -nqt be Issued In any cases In which injunctions would not Issue if no Industrial suit were involved. We favor the eight-hour\ day on all Government work. We pledge the Democratic Party to the- enactment of a law by Con­ gress, as far as the Fed.-rrl* juris­ diction extends, for a General Em­ ployers' Liability act, covering injury to body or loss of life by employes. We pledge the Democratic Party to the enactment of a law creating a Department of Labor, represented separately in the President's Cabinet, which department shall include the subject of mines and mining. We favor Immediate revision of the tariff by the reduction of import duties. Articles entering into com­ petition wlf.h trust-controlled prod­ ucts should be placed upon the free list, and material reductions should be made in the tariff upon the neces­ saries of life, especially upon articles competing with, such American man­ ufactures as are'\Sold abroad more cheaply than at home and graduate reductions should be made in such such o&her.schedules as, may be nec­ essary to restore the tariff to a reve­ nue basis. Existing duties have given to the manufacturers of paper a shelter be­ hind which they have organized com­ binations to raise the price of pulp and of paper, thus Imposing a tax upon the spread of knowledge We demand the immediate repeal of the tariff on pulp, print paper, lumber, timber, and 4 °gs, and ttoat these ar­ ticles be placed ur-on the free II.' We demand that the House of Rep­ resentatives shall again become a de­ liberative body, controlled by a ma­ jority of the people's represen; at ves, and nofby the Speaker, and wa pledge ourselves to adopt such rilea and regulations to govern it lie Home of Representatives as wl'l rt<->l)!e a majority of its membe-s to ct'rert ir» deliberations and control leg siat'em We pledge ourselves to leg­ islation undor which tho National banks shall bo r » (jnlrod to establish n. guaranteo fund for the prompt payment of tho dopo-ltore of any Insol. vent Nntional bank undor an uiiultablo system which shall be available, to nil Statu lnuiklii'!

Discouraged After Spending Money Without Benefit—Found Help at Last. Mr. Earl McCoy, living at 1506 So. Branson Street, Marion, Ind., has passed through an experience that is being duplicated every day in every town and city of any consequence in the United States. It furnishes abun­ dant proof of the correctness of L. T. Cooper's theory in regard to the de-, generacy of the human stomach, and Shows conclusively the merit possessed by his New Discovery medicine to re- Btore the weakened system to full strength and Tlgor. Mr. McCoy says: \For a long time I haye been a sufferrer from stomach trouble. I was unable to retain any food, and became so weak and run down that I was compelled to stop work. My system \was nearly a wreck, and I had tried so many remedies and spent so much money without deriv­ ing any benefit, that I became dis­ couraged and gave up hope of ever being well again. \I heard a great deal of Mr. Coop­ er's theory and. medicine, arid after much hesitation decided to try it. The result was a pleasant surprise. Before I had taken half of the first bottle I was able to retain all food eaten, and my strength began to return. I have taken six or seven bottles, and am feeling fine. I eat and sleep well, do not cough at night, and am able to perform a hard day's work. I can cheerfully recommend Cooper's New Discovery, for it has done wonders for me.\ The Cooper remedies are meeting with remarkable success wherever they are introduced. They are with­ out a rival in toning up a weakened and run-down system. We sell them. f —p w Gorham.
