THK INDIANAPOLIS CONVENTION.
A convention was held at Indianap
olis last week by an assemblage call-
in? itself the National Democratic
party. The delegates to this gather
ing were composed mainly of bankers,
monopolists, or their attorneys, and
Cleveland "cuckoos." It was called
for the purpose of formulating a plat
form that would declare unequivo
cally for the gold standard, and nomi
nate candidates for President and
Vice-President who would uphold its

The platform adopted puts great
stress upon the ''maintenance of the
gold standard," and omits to say any-
thingabout international agreement or
other means of bringing about bimet
allism. This sustains the position
that the Peoples Party has always put
forth that the opponents to the free
coinage of silver are not bimetallism,
but gold monometallists. Its refer
ence to trusts, combines and monopo
lies is brief and of no depth. Instead
of denouncing them in plain terms
and demanding the enforcement of re
tiring these unlawful concerns from
business, it says it "recognizes the ob
ligations of all good citizens to resist
every illegal trust, combination and
attempt against the just rights of
property and the good order of socie
ty." The income tax is entirely ig
The selection of their standard bear
ers was not a matter of much import
as nobody expects the so-called Na
tional Democrats to 'carry a single
State. There are some Democrats who
will support the Palmer-Buckner
ticket who otherwise would not have
voted at all, but it cannot draw away
any votes from Bryan, and may pos
sibly help his election, as no doubt the
class of voters in sympathy with the
Indianapolis ticket, in the absence of
it, would have cast their votes for

said that it was a gathering repre

Maj. Guthrie, the Populist nominee
for Governor, and "Cy" Watson, tbe
Democratic candidate, was held at
liutherfordton last Friday, and fully
1,000 people, representing the Popu
lists, Democratic and Republican par
ies, turned out to hear these leaders
speak upon tbe vital issues of this
campaign. Much enthusiasm was man-
rested throughout the discussion, in
spiring each speaker to make an able

declared the speaker, 'a syndicate of

Mr. Watson discussed the tariff and

election in 1892 was a rebuke to the

The Republicans seem to object to
the idea of having Bryan as the peo

evidently prefer that Hanna and the
monopolists should have a hired man
for President. Pay your money and
take your choice.

on that measure. Mr. Watson's party

Maj. Guthrie if he was not in favor of
silver men getting together as had
been proposed by the Democratic com

"But nobody has any right to take
Sewall down," said Watson. "Now, do
you favor the proposition for the sil

' Our committees will settle that in

"But are you, as the head of your

if Mr. Watson favored fusion on Con

Congress in every district.
"That is not a matter for the State
committee," said Watson ; "I can only
say tbat if 1 was a candidate for Con
