THE AUCTION HOUSE.
The platform in full as adopted
by the convention is as follows :
1. The Democrats of Texas in
convention assembled declare
their faith in tho principles of
the party as sot forth in the Kan-
sas City platform and we believe
that with Democratic success in
1904 tho dangers of imperialism
centralization trusts monopolies
mergers and other combines hurt-
J ful to our people unjust taxation
.and kindred ovilB would no longer
confront our country.
Wo commend our benators
and Representatives in Congress
for their efforts in behalf of tariff
reform ; of a canal connecting the
waters of the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans; the election of United
States Senators by a direct vote
of tho people ; tho securing of ap-
propriations for the improvement
of our harbors and waterways; of
an additional Foderal judicial dis-
trict for the Southern district of
our State ; tho enlargement of old
and the building of now commo-
dious buildings for Federal pur-
poses ; an appropriation of a fund
for tho investigation and extermi
nation of tho boll weevil and we
appreciate especially their en-
deavors in behalf of universal lib-
erty their antagonism of trusts
and monopolies und urge them to
vigorously oppose every attempt
to establish a branch banking
system and tho issuance of asset
currency which would build up
a money trust of the widest and
most pornicious character.
8. Four years ago the Demo-
cracy of Texas promised to our
people economical government
wisely administered how well
this promise has been kept by
Governor Sayors and his associ-
ates is now a matter of history
and tho splendid condition of
each department and institution
throughout Toxas bears witness
to their patriotism ability and
devotion to duty. Taxes have
been reducod ; the terms of our
public schools have been length-
ened and tho work of several de-
partments has been broadened
and the eleemosynary institutions
enlarged so that tho jails aro
emptied of the insune and room
has been made in the other in
stitutions for the care of all those
whom the State haB made its
charge. We are justly proud that
while ours is the banner State
and that while our party has been
for nearly half a century practi-
cally without opposition yet no
form of corruption has been
fostered and no stigma cast upon
the character and patriotism of
any nominee made by our State
4. We favor proper legislation
regarding the improvement of
our country roads and we demand
that the Legislature pass laws
under which a comprehenseve
Bystem of public roads may bo
had at the smallest expense to
5. We favor the enactment of
laws providing for the employ
meiit as far as practicable of
short time State convicts on tho
public roadB in counties making
suitable provisions therefor and
the employment of State peniten-
tiary convict labor on work not
in competition with free labor as
far as practicable and that such
prisoners bo employed in the
walls of the penitentiary and
upon farms operated by the State
or upon its own account.
o. Wo favor the continuance
of our present policy of regard
ing our eleemosynary institu-
tions so that they may continue
to provide for all of the helpless
wards of our State.
7. We favor tho substantial
reenactment by tho next Legisla-
ture of tho present uniform text
book law which will expire by
its own termB in 1008 with such
provisions aB will prevent un-
necessary changes in the text
books now in the hands of tho
children attending tho public
8. Recognizing publis intelli-
gence aB the best safeguard of
Bocial order and considering the
present prosperity and increas-
ing wealth of our State wo make
special demand upon the Twenty-
eighth Legislature to deal genor-
ously with all State educational
institutions the University the
Agricultural and Mechanical
College the Girls' Industrial
School and the several normal
schools including the Prairie
View Normal and tho industrial
school for colored youths ; and to
promote the cauBO of education
m Texus to the end that its insti-
tutions of learning may rank
with tho beat in tho land. Wo
commend tho course of the last
Legislature in making adequate
appropriation from tho general
revenue for the maintenance and
support of the University thoroby
enabling the board of regouts to
utilizofrom its available fundB
tho money required for tho erec-
tion of necessary buildings and
tho purchase of grounds.
Wo declare it to be tho fixed
policy of the Democratic party to
take our public schools and other
intitutions of learning out of
politics and we thoreforo roitor-
ate tho domand of the Democratic
platform of 1000 for tho submis-
sion of a constitutional amend-
ment making the appointmont of
tho truBteeo of our schools col-
leges and universities for terms
of two four Bix and eight years.
0. We request the Legislature
to provide for the establishment
of textile schools as a department
of industrial education in tho
Agricultural and Mechuuical
Wo commend that feature of
industrial education known as
manual training and recommend
that the Twenty-eighth Legisla-
ture make provision to introduce
it into the state Normal sctioolB
tho orphans' homo and into such
public schools as it may deem
10. We favor a broad and on-
lightened policy towards capital
and corporations doing business
within our btate and towards
those desiring to enter our State
for the purpose ot developing ith
great agricultural resources and
lor protection ol such as well as
for tho protection for all our
people without regard to condi-
tion. We declare our opposition
to trustB mergers and other com-
bines for the restriction ot trade
and demand that the next Legis-
lature shall pass a law or amend
our present law so it will bo im-
possible for such corporations to
do biiBiness in Toxas.
11. We favor tho passone of a
well considered riparian law in
order that the rice and other
great industries of our State may
be foBtered and tho rights of our
people along such canals and
waterways may bo properly safe
12. Wo favor the submission
of a constitutional amendment
authorizing tho charter of State
nanus oi discount and deposit un-
der restrictions and regulations
for the protection of stockholders
and depositors Bimiliar to those
govorning national banks.
18. We demand a law prohib-
iting the employment of children
under the ago of 12 years in fac-
tories using machinery.
14 We most heartily ondorse
and approve tho purpose and
labors of the Texas World's Fair
commission appointed by Gov
ernor Sayors to provide a proper
and adequate display illustrative
of the wonderful resources of
TexaB at the great Louisiana Pur
chase Exposition to be held in St
Louis in 1901. We believe that
such an exhibit is demanded by
the exigencies of the State and
will promote its progress and con-
fer unmeasured benefits upon its
15. Wo recommend that the
Legislature shall pass such laws
as in its judgment would provont
tne ciyus ot the issuance of free
passeB by railroad companies.
10. vvniio wo uo not neneve in
lifo tenure offices yet we recognize
tne value oi training and oxpori-
enco and consequently we declare
that the dismissal of subordinates
without causo especially to make
room for relatives or political
adhorontB is detrimental to tho
public sorvico and contrary to
Bound public policy and recom
mend legislation for tho correc-
tion of such ovils.
v' 17. Wo domand tho nassaco of
a law which will roaulato our
primaries for tho nomination of
national Stato and District
officals so that such nominations
shall bo invalid if not hold on
tho same day in ovo'ry county in
our Stato and recommoud all
necessary amendments to present
lftwji that may bo necessary to pro-
tect tho fairness and tho purity
of such primary oloctions or pri-
mary conventions and propor
pmnshmont for illegal voting or

and declare for uniform prima-
ries to bo held throughout tho
Stato for the nomination of
Stato and District oflicors ; tho
counties to.hold samo by primary
elections or primary conventions
as they prefer provided thoy aro
hold upon tho samo day.
To secure this result wo horoby
instruct the Stato Democratic
Executive Committee to call said
primaries for tho next gonoral
election upon tho second Satur-
day in July A. D. 100-1 and in
making the call for tho Stato
Convention following said prima
ries tne uiiairmaiii ottho otato

from any county not holding itB
primary on said date- will bo do-
nied participation in tho organi-
zation of tho Stato Convention
and tho State Executivo Com-
mittee shall enforce this provis-
ion. 19. Wo endorso and applaud
the action of the last Legislature
in remitting taxes duo to tho Stato
from the county of Galveston
and wo favor tho further romission
of said taxes for an additional
period of fifteon years to tho ond
that Texas may do hor part in
tho upbuilding of a great seaport
so that our agricultural livo
stock manufacturing and othor
products may have an outlot to
tho sea'which will savo to tho in
many millions of dollars annu-
ally; and thorofore that justice
may bo done a bravo and patriotic
people wo instruct the Democrat-
ic members of tho next Legisla-
ture to pass a law permitting tho
people of Galveston to uso for tho
filling and grading of tho oity of
Galveston so far as tho sum may
go all tho State taxes of tho
county of Galveston for an ad
ditional period ot litteon yoarH
