evtry tiller of the soil, gain tfo advan
tage from excessive tax laws, but the
price of nearly everything Ihcy buy is iu
creoeed bv favoritism of an uneoual avs
tem of tx legislation. All unnecessary
taxation is unjuat taxation. - It is rcpug
naut to the crw d of Democracy that by
such taxation the cost of the necessaries
of life shout l unjustifiably increased
to all wt people. Judging by D( mocrut-
Snauciplcs, the iuttrtsU of the pto
e are betrayed, when, by unncce-sary
taxation, trusts and combinations are
permitted to exist, which, while unduly
enriching the few that combine, rob tho
body of our citizet a by depriving them
of natuial competition. Whether con
stitutional or not, the accumulation of
extravagant taxations, the Democratic
policy is to enforce frugality iu put lie
expente, and abolish unnecessary taxa
tion. Oar established domestic indus
tiict and enterprises should not, and
need not be endangered by reduction and
correction of the nurdcos of taxation.
On the contrary a fair and careful revis
ion of our tax laws, with due allowance
for difference between the wages of
American and foreign labor must promote
n 1 encourage every branch of such, in
dustries and enterprises by giving them as
surances of extended markets and steady
and continuous operations. Interests of
American labor, hich should in no event
be neglected, revision f our tax lw.,
contemplated by the Democratic patty,
should promoti I be advantage of such
labor by cheapebing the cost f the nec
tatarics of 1 fe in the home of every
w-jrkingman, and at therame time secur
ing Ut him steady, remunerative employ
ment. I'pon the question of tariff reform,
so closely concerning every phase of our
national life, and uon every question
involved in the problem of good govern
rneut, the Democratic party submits ita
principles and professions to the intelli
gent suffrage! of the American people."
