DEMOCRATIC STATE PLATFORM— 1904. 



27 



Democratic State Platform— 1904. 



Adopted at Greensboro, June 24 

1 1)04. 

The Democratic party of North Carolina, 
in convention assembled, declaring anew its 
allegiance to the fundamental principles of 
government as expressed in former piriforms, 
congratulates the people of the State that a 
Democratic administration has again estab- 
lished throughout their borders the reign 
of law and liberty and the reign of peace 
and progress. Radical rule, with its night- 
mare of horrors, has passed away. Our peo- 
ple are no longer employed in guarding 
their homes and protecting their livis, lib- 
erty and property as they were under Re- 
publican rule; but, safe" in the protection 
of law, breathing the air of liberty, and 
er.jcying the freedom which comes from 
security, our men and our women are de- 
vcting their energies to the pea'jei'-il pur- 
suits of honest industry, to the education 
of their children and to the care of the 
helpless and unfortunate. Agriculture, man- 
ufacturing and commerce are bounding for- 
ward in helpful rivalry, neither receiving 
nor desiring subsidies or protection ocept 
that afforded by a stable and honest gov- 
ernment. Nowhere in North Carolina is 
there riot or disorder; nowhere is there 
suffering or destitution. Such are the fruits 
of peace and order of honesty and efficiency, 
of intelligence and patriotism, of Demo- 
cratic administration under the leadership 
of the peerless orator, statesmen and edu- 
cator, Charles Brantley Aycock, and the 
ether honest and efficient public officials 
associated with him in the State adminis- 
tiation in all three departments of govern- 
ment. 

North Carolina has again come into her 
own. She stands in the forefront of South- 
ern States, leading all in educational and 
industrial progress. Her sons are looked Co 
at home and abroad for educational, incus- 
trial and commercial leadership. What :i 
contrast to conditions existing lecently 
when the degradation of cur educational, 
charitable and penal institutions, through 
the vices, incompetency, extravagance and 
corruption of Republican boards of man- 
agement caused The State to hang her head 
in shame and stand an object of pity anions- 
her sister States. 

The Democratic party points with pride 
to its settlement of the race problem in 
North Carolina — a settlement that depends 
upon Democratic supremacy for its perma- 
nence. The Constitutional Amendment fur- 
nishes to all the people of the State safe- 
guards of peace and order, of life, liberty 
ar.d happiness, and guarantees educational, 
religious and social progress as well as in- 
dustrial prosperity and development. 

We re-affirm our constitutional decUra 
tions that "religion, moralitv and knowl- 
edge being necessary to good government 
and the happinrss of mankind schools and 



means of education shall forever be en- 
couraged," and "that + he people have a 
right to the privilege of education, and 
that it is the duty of the State to guard 
and maintain that right," and we express 
our hearty approval of the educational 
v.crk of the present administration, and our. 
gt atification, at the great improvem .-.it 
made in our educational condit'ons under 
the present Democratic administra.-on, and 
would call attention to the fulfillment of 
the former premise of the party to provi le 
at least a four months' school term for 
all the children of the State. And we 
further express cur cordial commendation 
■ f the work of the teaching profession fo: 
tin mental, moral and material advance- 
r ent of the people, and pledge for the fu- 
ture our best endeavors to strengthen and 
increase the usefulness and efficiency of 
our whole public educational system. 

We approve the general principles of the 
Watts law regulating the manufacture and 
sale of liquors, and limiting the same to lo- 
calities in which there may be adequate 
police protection. The principle that no 
saloon or ttill shall operate txcept under po- 
lite protection is as sound as that whiskey 
shall not be sold to minors, to drunkards, 
or on Sundays, or near the schools and 
churches. The General Assemblv has the 
power, and when controlled by the D'emo- 
c i n tic party can be trusted to make all 
ami ndments that experiencce and conditions 
rr.ay demonstrate to be wise and proper. 

Ihe contrast between Ihe present and the 
preceding administration of the State Prison 
speaks trumpet-tongued of Democratic effi- 
( Lency and Republican rascality and imbecil- 
ity. In all the history of the State the low- 
est level of immorality, venality, and in- 
humanity wad reached in the .nanag ment 
o:' the S'ate convicts under the adminis- 
tration of Daniel L. Bussell. Today the in- 
stitution is free from debt and has on hand 
a surplus large enough to pay the bonds 
necessitated by Republican peculation and 
inefficiency. We pledge the party to con- 
tinued business-like and humane manage- 
ment of this institution. 

We call attention to the success that has 
attended the establishment of the insurance 
department which has increased our annual 
receipts by $90,000, and furthermore, in ad- 
dition to this increase, that fees now re- 
ceived by the State in this department 
which formerly were allowed to the official 
ccllecting them, are more than enough to 
cover all increases and additions in sala- 
ries of executive and judicial oificers. 

We pledge the party to a fair and just 
system of taxation in which all subjects of 
taxation shall bear their just and equal 
proportions of the burdens of government. 

After long and careful deliberation an.l

party to a fuller discharge of a debt 

that can never be fully paid to these aging 

heroes who offered their lives us a sacrifice 

upon the altars of their country. 

We point with pride to the record cf the 
Democratic party in its care of the unfor- 
tunate classes of our State and promise to 
large our charitable institu- 
tions until all the indigent insane are cared 
for at the expense of the State. 

Corporations being creatures of the law 
should be under control of the sovereign 
and amenable to the law. But being useful 
and necessary incidents of business, all 
their rights should be guarded and pro- 
t.'i.d by the law. Like other citizens they 
shculd be protect 1 from wrong and oppres- 
sion. Especially should they be protected 
from suits in form to procure receiverships 
designed to wreck the properties and trans- 
fer them from their rightful owners to the 
-ion and control of financial adven- 
turers. 
We call upon Coreress to enact laws cltsr- 
I ning (he powers of Federal judges ii.

corporations against improper and illegal 
appoint ments. 

Wi favor the establishment of the Appa- 
lai hian Forest Reserve, and urge our Sena- 
no Representatives to continue their 
efforts to secure the establishment of the 

At no period in the history of the repub- 
lic has the Democratic party been so nee s- 
sory to the welfare of the people and the 
cause of free government, as it is tcday. A 

conservative force, it stands a barrier 
between the recklessness of organized greed 
and the desperation of oppressed humanity. 
Its mission is to give liberty and justice to 
all. monopoly and tyranny to none; to re 
the Federal government within ihe 
constitutional limits of its authority, to re- 
sist its even' aggression beyond the scope 
delegated power; to limit its power 

ition to the needs of the go /eminent 
economically administered; to distribute 
impartially the Durdens of g ei iment; to 

■ «■ unimpaired the reserved rights of 



tin States and of the people; to maintain 
the right of local self-government; these .ire 
and have always been among the funda- 
mental principles oi the Democratic part}'. 

It is especially n cessary to restrict the 
executive head of the Federal government 
within the constitutional limits of his au- 
thority, and no argument of tcmpoiary ex- 
ncy can justify the assumption by him 
of powers conferred exclusively upon the 
legislative department of the government or 
tin violation by him of plain provisions of 
constitutional, statute and treaty law. 

For the last eight years the Republican 
party has been in complete control of the 
i ral government in all its branches. Dur- 
ing that time trusts and monopolies have 
multiplied. They have increase! their ex- 
tortions from the people. They dominate 
the Republican paity and compel it to ad- 
minister the affairs of the republic in -neir 
selfish interest. We condemn the President 
for his surrender to trust influences and for 
his failure to enforce the law against monop- 
olies and monopolists. Congress appropriated 
$500,000.00 to employ special counsel to en- 
force the laws against trusts. In tw ive 
months he expendi d for such purpose only 
one-twentieth of that sum. In the midst o; 
crime and havoc committed by these wrong- 
doers, he will not stop the violation of 
statutes enacted for the protection of the 
people, nor punish the criminals who plun- 
der them, although his attention was called 
to the manner in which the perpetrators 
might be punished by recent decision^ of the 
Supreme Court. 

We denounce the present iniquitous, un- 
just and trust-creating protective tariff im- 
posed upon the people ny th< Republican 
party and demand its immediate revision, 
to the end that all unjust burdens shall be 
removed, and especially those apon the nec- 
essaries of life and those that enab'e the 
trust to extort from the people unreason- 
able profits and to sell their products to 
consumers at home at gr-Mter pries than 
are charged f. .r the same goods to the 
foreign consumer. 

We review with alarm the growing ten- 
dency of the government under Republican 
administration toward despotic centra'iza- 
tion at home, as well as despotic imperial- 
ism abroad. »V«: denounce the policy of the 
Republican party in building up a strong 
centralized government at Washington at the 
expense of the sacred rights of the sovereign 
States; that which in its policy and con- 
duct has reversed the clause of the constitu- 
tion, reserving to the States all ligrhts not 
specifically conferred upon the Federal gov- 
ernment, and has assum d fe.r the central 
government at Washington the vast residium 
of power solemnly guaranteed to the oeo- 
ple by the constitution. The ine\itahle con- 
sequence of this policy and practice will be 
the destruction of popular governm?nc and 
'.he establishment of a military empire. Con- 
fidently relying upon these fundamental 
principles of government and app aling to 
the record of our party in the past, we in-

vite all who believe in popular liberty, pop- I whatever guise and by whomsoever prae-

Republican State PlaLform — 1904. 



1. The Republican Party of North Caro- 
lina, in convention assembled, at Greens- 
boro, North Carolina, on this the 18th day 
of May, 1904, hereby endorses and ratifies 
the principles and policies enumerat.il in 
the platforms of the National Republican 
Party, adopted in 1896 and 1900. In spite 
of Democratic opposition the policies and 
principles of our party have been written 
intc law, and we point with pride to its 
achievements. It has blessed our country 
with unparalleled prosperity. It has car- 
ried happiness to every home. It has ex- 
panded our commerce. It has broadened our 
territory. It has made supreme our influ- 
ence at home and abioad. It lias raised our 
credit, until today it is the highest in the 
world. It has ever stood for universal free 
dom, and has carried the blessings of liberty 
into the islands of the sea. It has held our 
honor unsullied, and our flag untarnished, 
until we have taken cur place as the arl I 
of the nations of the world. Throughout its 
long lease of power, its Presidents and lead- 
ers have always 1 cen equal to the great 
est demands: and now the country, with all 
its vast and varied interests, has a Republi- 
can President in the person of Theodore 
Roosevelt who has shown himself no less 
equal to every emi rgency, who has dcvel- 
cpul a statesmanship that entitles him to 
the confidence of the nation, and for Lhese 
reasons we hereby endorse! his administrati "n 
and pledge our earnest support for his nom- 
ination and election. 

2. We endorse the Republican adminis- 
tration in protecting the rights of the peo- 
ple against monooolies, trust's and other un- 
lawful combinations. 

3. We endorse the Republican party for 
its action in constructing the Panama Canal, 
and the neople of the United States from 
all sections, especially from the South, a>e 
to be congratulated upon the prospects of 
so soon securing the great interoeeanic 
waterway which will give new impetus to 
the nation's commerce, and prove a blessing 
to the country at krge, and especially to 
the South. 

4. We endorse the foreign' policy of ex- 
parsiun •( the Republican partv by which 
Porto Rica, Hawaii and the Philippines have 
1 ctn annexed to the United States, thus 
opening up a ne\v market to the manufac- 
turers of this country. 

5. We endorse the Republican party for 
liberating the Cubans from Spanish tyranny 
and oppression, and point with pride to 
their success and progress since the estat- 
lishrnent of the Republican form of govern- 
ment. 

(i. We deplore the death of the lat.t Sena- 



tor Marcus A. Hanna, and recognize in his 
exalted life and character the highest iyp t 
c; the patriotic citizen, the Christian gen- 
tlemar. and the wise statesman, and cherish 
his life history as one of the most orecicus 
heritages of the Republican party. 

7. We most heartily endorse the able, 
fearless and aggressive course of Hon. Thos. 
S. Rollins, our State Chairman, and com- 
mend his efforts for the success of the party 
in the State. 

8. The Republican party favors the Appa- 
lachian Park, and we promise to use all 
honorable means to bring about legislation 
establishing the same. 

9. We favor the education of the masses, 
but denounce the practice of the present 
D( mocratic State administration in its ef- 
forts to make the common schools a part 
of the Democratic machine, to be run for 
partisan purposes, until their usefulness has 
been greatly impaired and those most in 
need of education largely deprived of its ad- 
vantages. We pledge ourselves to tne cor- 
nel ion of these abuses, and to so amend the 
law as to remove our free schools as far as 
possible from the realm of politics, and 
thus prevent their being diverted to parti- 
san advantages, and to give to the system 
an elasticity that will inure to the nest in- 
terests of those most in need of its help. 

10. The Republican pa-ty favors generous 
public aid to all charitable institutions in 
the State, and the enactment of pension 
laws more liberal arc just to the old Con- 
federate soldiers. 

21. We denounce the policy of the Demo- 
cratic party in its effort to destroy those 
they cannot use for partisan ends, which has 
resulted in driving both labor and capital 
from our State, thereby decreasing the 
sources of tavation at the very time their 
administration has bankrupted our treasury. 

12. We denounce the management of the 
Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad and 
Hotel by the Democratic party as incompe- 
tent, corrupt and extravagant, and declare 
that we favor the leasing of that property, 
and promise the pec pie of North Carolina 
that if elected to power we will forever put 
an end to such scandals as have ;ecently 
teen brought to light in connection with 
its management. We denounce the Gover- 
nor's star chamber investigation of that 
road and declare that the secret and clande- 
stine investigation into its aflairs \vas an out- 
rage and a disgrace, and one which the citi- 
zens of ths State should not tolerate. 

13. We denounce the hypocisy of the Dem- 
ocratic party in its effort to deceive the 
people by saying they had not raised the 
rate of taxation, while they have forced an

the question of whether they shall or shall 
not be permitted to make ;-nd sell intoxi- 
cating liquors, and the faithful execution of 
their will as expressed at the ballot hox.

istration as being the most extravagant in 
the history of North Carolina. The year

of ^'.2,201,604.31, or nearly as much as was

debt of more than five hundred thousand

in January, and there is no limit to length of sessions, but if sessions are continued 
Longer than '"0 days members "shall serve without compensation." 

STATIC I)i:BT.— The old debt, excepting such as is not recoemized, has mostly been 
funded under the funding laws of 1879, the time prescribed for the exchange having 
ictended to January 1, 1905. These la-vs provided for the issue of (1) consolidat- 
ed 4 p. c. bonds due in 1910 to fund old ante- war bonds at 40 per cent oi face value, 
"New" railroad bonds recognized as valid at 25 per cent, and bonds of I860 and 
166S at 15 per cent, nothing being given for overdue coupons; and (2) for new con- 
solidated 6 per cent bonds due in 1919, for which the North Carolina RR. construction 
bonds were made exchangeable at par, holders of construction bonds abating $240 of 
le interest on each $1,000 bond. The new bonds, both 4s and 6s, carry tax-re- 
ceivable coupons, and are exempt from "all State, county or corporate taxation or as- 
sessment, direct or indirect, general or special." The 4s of 1903 are also exempt from 
taxation. (See decision U. S. Supreme Court v. 78, P. 594; v 78, p. 124S; v 79. p. 

An amendment to the State Constitution passed by the Legislature in 1S79 and rati- 
fied by popular vote in 1880, forbids the General Assembly to pay or recognize as 
valid the following bonds: Special tax bonds $11, "66,000; bonds to Chatham RR., 
1868, $1,030,000, and to VVilliamston & Tarboro RR., $150,000; Penitentiary bonds of 
186S, $44,000. The special tax bonds are in 3 classes, class 1 bearing the coupon of 
April. 1S00. and since; class 2 bearing the coupon of October, 1869; class 3 bearing the 
coupon of April, 1870. Holders of the special tax bonds brought suit to establish the 
validity of their bonds and the case was decided in favor of the State. 

The recognized debt which had been adjusted up to December 1, 1903, stood as, tol- 

Principal 
When Due. Outstanding. 

April 1, 1919 $2,720,000 

July 1, 1910 6, 498,950 

January 1, 1909 110,000 

January 1, 1909 x60.000 

January 1, 1913 300,000 

xlnteresl paid from earnings of state Prison. 

PAK VALUE OF BONDS.— The consolidated 4s are $50, $100, $500 and $1,000; the con- 
solidated 6s sl.OOO each. The prison bonds are for $500 and $1,000 each. The bonds of 
1903 are for *500 and $1,000 each. 

INTEREST on the consolidated 4s and 6s is payable in New York at the National 
Talk Rank and in Raleigh. 

TOTAL Dh.,T RECOGNIZED AND TOTAL ADJUSTED.— The funding act of March 
•I. IS79, has been extended to January 1. 1905. The recognized fundable debt which has 
been funded and the recognized fundable debt which has not been funded are. a$ 
follows: 

Funded. Not funded. 

Consols 6 per cent $2,720,000 $22,000 

Consols 4 oer cent 3,408,950 210,250 

To the foregoing we should add the further fact that the State does not have to
