! The Commoner Vol. i. No. 26. Lincoln, Nebraska, July 19, 1901. $1.00 a Year T H E OHIO PLATFORM '&3Jkr, Tho Ohio democratic convention . was the political event of last week. The platform adopted, and reproduced on page five of this issue, made a strong presentation of some of the issues but failed to reaffirm the Kansas City platform. It began with municipal and state issues and the handiwork of Mayor Tom L. Johnson was evident in the terse and emphatic declara tion of democratic principles so far as they ap ply to local questions. The necessity for mu nicipal reform is an urgent one and there is sound democracy in the plank demanding that tho people be given an opportunity to vote on questions involving the granting or extending of a franchise. The plank which declares that "steam and electric railroads and other corporations posses sing public franchises shall be assessed in the same proportion to their salable value as are farms and, cityrcal estate-Ma both-logicalaiid juB...

k.Tj5!BNfWW "W :t .-. IT . Wl ,t Free For All. In tho disoussion of possible presidential candidates some are prono to regard the sec tional question a's of overshadowing import ance. Those who live in what are known as the doubtful states are especially liable to this error, because they arc naturally willing to fur nish the candidates. It is not only customary to look to a few doubtful states to furnish tho candidates, but it is not uncommon to have some portions of tho country excluded from consideration entirely. For years it has been assumed that a southern man was unavailable, and a western man almost as much so. New York, Ohio, Illinois and Indiana have fur nished to the two leading parties nearly all the candidates nominated since the civil war. New York furnished the democratic presidential can didate in 1808, 1872, 1870, 1880, 1884, 1888, and 1892, and in those campaigns the candidate for vice-president came from Indiana three times, from Ohio once, and from Illinois once....

The Commoner. i without any security for the' payment of those notes is "sound money." It cannot bo doubted that the tendoncy among our great financiers is toward the estab lishment of just such a bank as is proposed by Mr. Morgan. Such a bank would be able to control not only the purse strings of the na tion but the purse strings of the people. Be cause of this enormous power, such, a bank would be able to control elections, dictate gov ernment policies, crush great principles, and shape the business of the country according to the ends and advantages of those in authority in this central bank. Such a bank, if these men had their way, would be endowed with money issuing powers "without the pre-requisite of bond deposits." There are many things nowadays which threaten the welfare of the people, but ot all of the propositions so far made none promise greater detriment than the suggestion that there be established in this country a Nick Biddle institution. And yet it may be that out o...

T'rrnMMfMltW ! r' vJVT r 1 " ' -fp Mf r''"I!J7r"3f ' 4 r Brown On Citizenship. One of the remarkable features about Jus tice Brown's opinion in the Porto Rican case has escaped general observation. After saying "in short the constitution deals with ' states, their people and their representatives," Justice Brown proceeded in his effort to sus tain this view. Ho pointed out that the 13th amendment to the constitution, prohibiting slavery aud involuntary servitude 'within the United States or any place subject to their ju risdiction," is "also signiiicant as showing that there may bo places within the jurisdiction of tho United States that are no part of the United States." Justice Brown laid great stress upon the fact that the words "or any place subject to their jurisdiction" were used in the 18th amendment, and in ordor to strengthen his po sition he pointed to the language of tho 14th amendment, saying, "upon the" other hand tho 14th amendment, upon the subject of citizen ship dec...

nrt '(-" pt f ? P The Commoner. The Ohio Platform. The platform adopted by the Ohio Demo-" cratic state convention for 1001 is as follows: The democrats of Ohio reaffirm their belief in the equality of taxation and other public burdens; their advocacy of the equal rights of all people, "With special privileges to none; their hostility to the monopolization of industry, with its tendency on the one hand to crush out individual enterprise and on the other to promote a socialistic spirit among the people as the only refuge from oppres sion, and their faith in that theory and practice of constitutional government which brought the na tion into existence and have preserved it to the present generation. For the promotion of those objects the demo cratic party of Ohio makes the following declara tion of principles and policies: The government of municipalities of the state should be radically reformed and wise general laws bo enacted to correct abuses and prevent their recurrence.

y The Commoner. Somebody Is Paying the Bill. The People, the Products and the Official. The official reports for the fis cal year ending June 30, 1001, show that the total expendi tures for the war department the past year amounted to $144,543,912, the expenditure for the navy during the same per iod amounted to $60,580,705. This shows an increase of $62,000,000 over the expendi tures of the army and navy departments for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1000. It also shows an increase of $121,600,000 over the expenditures for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1898, that being the last fiscal year prior , to the Spanish-American war. These are enormous figures. Somebody is paying the bill. Is the bill being paid by the republican politicians "who insist upon making this nation a world power? Or is the bill being paid by the American people, who in the midst of a temporarily well filled dinner pail, are ignorant or indifferent as to the source from which the money must come?

The Commoner. Vol. i. No. 27. Lincoln, Nebraska, July 26, 1901. $1.00 a Year The Strike. A strike is on "between organized labor, and the Steel Company, and it seems to involve the right of labor to organize for its own protec tion. President Shaffer who represents the men is confident of success, while tlie officers of the Steel Trust as yet show no sign of weak ening. Mr. Shaffer says-that the men -will not resort to force and that there will bo no de struction of property. As long as this promise is kept public sympathy will bo with the laboring men. The right of labor to organize ought not to bo questioned, and yet the growth of trusts is directly opposed to the interests of the laboring men, and, as every trust is a men ace to the labor organizations, it is strange that any laboring man votes with the trusts. When the head of a great corporation controls all the factories which employ skilled labor in any particular line he is very likely to dictate terms. Capital does not need...

The republicans say nothing about a salt trust that controls ninety-live per cent of the output of salt but makp a great ado about a patent which is used in compressing but a small portion of tho cotton crop. . The company has been criticised for rent ing its machines instead of selling them out right, but as tho patent law does not prohibit the leasing of a patented article and as this method of realizing on a patent is quite common it does not furnish valid ground for complaint.

They now declare that tho money question is dead, and that tliey want to return to tho democratic party, or rather, as they express it, are willing to allow tho democratic party to return to them. And yet they are so afraid of an issue which they call dead that they will vote for a high tariff, trust-controlled and imperialistic administra tion rather than support a democratic tickets on a platform endorsing free silver.

ET The Commoner To the American People. The Anti-Imperialist leagues of the United States have been silent since the presidential elec tion, but cot because they have less faith in their cause or believe the battle lost. They had hoped that those who voted for MY. McKiiey, while dis approving his policy in the West Indies and the Philippines, would see that their votes were mis interpreted, and would make their disapproval known and felt. They had hoped that congress would claim, its place in our government, and would insist that the principles of freedom must be recognized and applied wherever our country holds sway. They had hoped that the supreme court would with no uncertain voice declare that no human being under our control could be with out the rights secured by our constitution, and that neither president nor congress, nor both together, could exercise absolute power over men entitled to the protection of our flag. These hopes have not been realized. Where Benjamin Harrison ...
