Democratic State Platform— 1906. 



The Democracy of North Carolina in con- 
vention assembled, renews its allegiance 
to the jjrinciples of constitutional gov- 
ernment, through laws enacted and executed 
in the intei'est of the whole people, with- 
out favor to individual or class; and it 
pledges itself to continue the just, wise 
and economical administration of public 
affairs which have obtained in State and 
county since its return to power in 1899. 

We congratulate the people of the State 
that, under Democratic auspices, there has 
been established throughout the borders of 
the State a reign of law and liberty, peace 
and progress. That our people are no 
longer employed in guarding their homes 
and protecting their lives, liberty and prop- 
erty, as they were under Republican rule; 
but safe in the protection of law, and en- 
joying the freedom which comes from se- 
curit.v, are directing their energies to peace- 
ful pursuits of honest industry. 

We endorse the wise, patriotic and able 
administration of our States affairs by 
Governor Robert B. Glenn and the other 
State officials, and we point with pride 
to the record of our Senators and Demo- 
cratic Representatives in Congress, and en- 
dorse the same. 

We again congratulate the people of North 
Carolina upon the successful operation of 
the Constitutional Amendment regulating 
the elective franchise. The adoption of this 



measure has permanently solved the race 
problem which had so long agitated the 
public mind, and was a menace to peace 
and good government. 

In its operation the assurances made by 
the Democratic party to the people, that 
no white man would be disfranchised there- 
by have been fully verified, and the predic- 
tion of the Republican party, to the con- 
trary, proven false. 

After a test of five years the wisdom of 
the Amendment is recugnlzed and acquiesced 
I in by all political parties, and is accepted 
as a solution of a vexed question. 

We congratulate the people upon the 
beneficent effect of the temperance legisla- 
tion enacted by the Democratic party, and 
! approve and endorse the principles enunciat- 
ed in the Watts bill and the Ward bill 
rtgulating the manufacture and sale of li- 
quor. 
j We reaffirm our constitutional declarations 
i that "religion, morality, and knowledge be- 
I ing necessar.y to good government and the 
I happiness of mankind, schools and means of 
education shall be forever encouraged." and 
that the people have the right to the priv- 
I ilege of education, and that it is the duty 
of the State to guard and maintain that 
right, and we express hearty approval of 
the great results accomplished through edu- 
cational work during the past six years of 
Democratic rule — at the great improvement

made during that time in our educational i 
conditions, and we promise a continuance | 
of a four months' school term for all the I 
children of the State. 

The Democratic party established the | 
system of pensioning Confederate soldiers , 
and opened the Soldiers' Home for the care 
of the veterans who responded to the call 
of the State in the War IJctween the States. 
Every dollar given them was appropriated 
or forced by the Democratic legislation or 
Democratic public sentiment. We pledge 
the party to a fuller discharge of a debt 
that can never be fully paid to these aging 
heroes who offered their lives as a sacrifice 
upon the altar of their country. 

We point with pride to the record of 
the Democratic party in its care of the un- 
fortunate classes of our State and promise 
to continue to enlarge our charitable insti- 
tutions until all the indigent insane are 
cared for at the expense of the State. 
REGULATION OF PUBLIC SERVICE COR- 
PORATIONS 

The powers of tlio Corporation Commis- 
sion should be so enlarged as to give it 
full and adequate power to regulate all 
public service corporations within the State 
and subject to its jurisdiction. Passen- 
ger and freight rates in North Carolina are 
too high and should be materially and sub- 
stantially reduced, as should also telephone 
rates and rentals, and we demand such 
action by the Legislature and Corporation 
Commission as will accomplish such re- 
duction. 

We are opposed to granting charters to 



corporations in perpetuity. 

The discrimination of railroads against 
North Carolina cities and towns, and in 
favor of other points having no greater 
natural advantages, is a grave injustice to 
the people of this State, and should be cor- 
rected by .such means as are available with- 
in the limitations set by the Constitution 
of the United States. The interference by 
public service corporations in political 
matters should be called so sharply to the 
attention of the people that it will be 
odious, and the efficiency of such corpora- 
tions as political agencies shouiu thus be 
destroyed. 

The law against issuing free passes should 
bo so amended as to make the party who 
illegally receives them equally guilty with 
the corporation issuing them. 

Tlie failure of connecting lines of railways 
to make connection as scheduled is a source 
of much inconvenience, expense and annoy- 
ance to the traveling public, and we de- 
mand such additional legislation as may be 
necessary to enforce that provision of our 
statute which requires connecting lines to 
make as close connection as is practicable 
for the convenience of the traveling pub- 
lic. 

FOREST RESERVE AND INLAND WATER- 
WAY 

We favor the Appalachian Forest Re- 
serve, and the construction of the inland 
water-way from Norfolk, Virginia, to Beau- 
fort Inleit. North Carolina. While both of 
these projects involve grreat benefits to the 
State, they are also of national importance.

water-borne trade of Eastern North Caro- 
lina, equalize traffic rates, and promote the 
prosperity of our people. Its construction 
will also greatly increase the coastwise ; 
trade between the South Atlantic and North 
Atlantic ports. 

We urge our Senators and Representatives 
to continue their efforts to secure legisla- 
tion for tne establishment of the one and 
the construction of the other. 

We reaffirm our adherence to the time- 
honored principle of Democracy of "equal 
rights to all and special privileges to 
none," and we condemn subsidies, gratui- 
ties, bonuses, trusts and monopolies. 

For nearly ten years the Rei^ublican par- 
ty has been in absolute control of all de- 
partments of national government, with 
power to change unjust conditions and to 
rectify evils. Yet, during that time colos- 
sal combinations of capital have dominated 
the people, and illegal pei-versions of cor- 
porate law have stifled competition and un- 
fairly limited the opportunity of the indi- 
vidual citizen. Wealth thereby illegally 
obtained has been unsparingly used to 
control legislation and corrupt elections. 
No honest effort has been made, or is be- 



ing made, by Republican legislation to cure 
or eradicate these evils. 

We denounce the hypocris}' of the Re- 
publican party, which, while pretending 
to legislate against these conditions, deals 
only with the symijtoms and not vrith the 
disease. The unfair, tyrannical features of 
the so-called "protective tariff" have made 
these things possible, and no permanent re- 
lief can be secured until its obnoxious fea- 
tures are removed. To remedy this evil we 
demand a thorough revision of present 
tariff laws. 

The growth of the trusts and other in- 
ordinate and dangerous combinations of 
capital, the tremendous and rapidly in- 
creasing absorption and centralization of 
the wealth of the country in the hands of 
a chosen few, all due to premeditated and 
s,ystematic legislation in behalf of special 
interests by the Republican party, demand 
a change in the policies imposed upon the 
country by that party and make the pass- 
age of restrictive laws an imperative ne- 
cessity. 

We denounce the appalling system of 
corruption heretofore practiced by the 
great insurance companies, whereby mcjiey 
intrusted to them for the benefit of wid- 
ows and orphans has been diverted to the 
enrichment of favored individuals and to the 
campaign fund of the Republican party. 

We denounce the present iniquitous, un-

At the Democratic State Convention held i

ing resolutions were adopted: ! 

ENDORSEMENT OF HR\..N AND AY j 

- COCK. , 

The Democracy of North Carolina, the 
first in .\nierica to support William ,1. Bry- ! 
an for the Presid.;ncy of the United States, j 
is gratified to S"e the Democracy of evcrj' i 
section of the R;'pubcic turning to him as 
the logical candidate for President in 1908. 

The spontaneous ca'l for his leadership is 
(lie result of a universal desire to correct the ' 
^■i;)tit ivils in our country which he long ; 



ago foresaw, and wluch- has heretofore de- 
feated the will of the American people. 
Honored the world over as .America's lirst 
citizin, he will be haileu upon his return 
as the one man to restore the government 
to the foundation of equality and justice 
upon which it was established by our fath- 
ers. The Democrats of North Carolina in 
convrntion assembled endorse the fandidacy j 
of William J. Bryan for President in 1908. | 
and recognizing that in choosing his run- 
ning-mate the Democracy of this country 
should select one of her wisest and broad- 
est statesmen, the North Carolina Democ- 
racj' presents to the Democracy of the Re- 
public as a fit candidate for Vice-President 
Hon. Charles B. Aycock, ex-Governor of , 
this State.

Republican State Platform — 1906. 



(Adopted at Greeiisb.)ro. July 10, 
190G.) 

The Republican party of North Carolina 
in convention assembled at Greensboro. N. 
C, .July 10, 1906, congiatulates all the peo- 
ple of the State upon prevailing conditions, 
as the unquestioned off-shoots of Repub- 
lican policies enforced since 1S97, resolve 
and dec'are the folowing to be a summary 
of their beliefs upon the more vital ques- 
tions of present interest and of the action 
they will take if given powi-r in the State: 

1. We claim for the administration of 
President Roosvelt that it has satisfied 
every reasonable demand of the patriot, 
the reformer and the worker in every fiohl 
of hr.man endeavor; that it has estab- 
lish! d the currency upon a basis not to 
be shaken; that it has vastly extended our 
foreign commerce, and so added largely to 



the nation's wea'th; that it has kept the 
p ii'c at home and promoted it abroad;' 
that it has expended the national revenue ; 
wisly and with absolute honesty; that it 
has laid bare and punished with iron hand 
every species of official or corporate cor- 
ruption brought to light by vigilant ag"nts 
of its own choosing; that it has hearkened 
to the voice of the oppressed in all lands 
and given sympathy when forbidden by law 
to give more; that it has aimed with true 
a^id constant purpose to reflect in its every 
act the highest and finest aspirations of 
the .\merican people, northern and south-, 
ern, eastern and western. 

2. We state with regret the acknowledged | 
fact that the laws of our own State have i 
not been enforced by the Democratic ad- | 
ministrators in State and county affairs; i 
the legislation upon the subject of tem- ' 



REPUBLICAN STA TE PLATFORM.

perance, so dear to a large part of our i 
best people, is confessedly a dead letter as 
relates to its enforcement by State officials I 
— Republican officials of internal revenue j 
bearing the whole burden of commanding i 
for it popular obedience. | 

Yet the amazing spectacle is presented of 
a party which has kept the promise to 
the ear and broken it to the hope now 
masquerading as prohibitionists in such sec- 
tions of the State as they deem ripe for that 
experiment in law-making. 

The Republican party insists that every 
county and every town should be allowed j 
to determine for itself by vote the question I 
of whether, and if so, how whiskey shall 
be sold in its limits, as well as who shall 
hold its offices, and that they shall, none I 
of them, be appointed b}^ the Legislature i 
or justices of the peace or any other au- j 
thority except tne people. 

3. We refute in the proper snirit of just 
indignation the frequent threat of danger ; 
to the State from our coming into power. I 
made by Democratic speakers and news- 
papers. The merest novice in political con- 
ditions must know mat victory for us can 
come from the addition of one constituency 
alone — the men of the Fanners' Alliance and 
the People's partj* — to whom alone or in 
conjunction ^vith Republicans the State 
owes the great upward movemf-nt in railroad ; 
regulation, in female education, in common ' 
school education, in i.-e preserving, care j 
and encouragement of the University, A. I 
and M. College and other State institutions, 
threatened then as now with ghost stories 
of their destruction ; and we pledge our- ; 
selves to continue and perfect the com- - 
mon school system, begun by the Repub- j 
licans, until a good English education is in 
the reach of every cinid. . ' 

We shall advocate one or more reforma- . 
tories for youthful criminals, and pledge 
the people that, given power, no insane 
man or woman, white or black, shall lack i 
the State's care, be the cost what i( may. 

4. We congratulate the people of the 1 
State upon the removal of the Atlantic ! 
and North Carolina Railroad from the j 
sphere of active politics, but denounce the 



refusal of State Democratic officials to let 
the light of publicit}' shine upon the evi- 
dence taken benind closed doors which led 
to the lease of that piece of State prop- 
erty. 

Graft was admitted, but never suffered 
purdshment, thus showing in marked con- 
trast a national Republican, as against a 
State Democratic administration; and we 
furtner denounce the method of the Demo- 
cratic party in appointing an investigatilig 
committee of strictly partisan Democrats. 

5. If Democratic testimony is to be ta- 
ken, the present Corporation Commission 
exists chiefl}' for the purpose of drawing 
salaries. We pledge ourselves to make it 
efficient. At present it is a laughing-stock 
of well-informed neople, but no less a bur- 
den upon the tax-payer. 

6. The Democratic part}' for years has 
vaunted its friendship for the Confederate 
soldiy;, while leaving him, in many cases, 
an object of charity. The Republicans by 
their votes in the General Assembly have 
ev .r shown their friendship for this most 
Honored class of our countrymen, now daily 
lessening in number. 

We advocate doubling the pittance now 
received by these veterans, and if we se- 
cure a legis'ative majority shall vote as 
we promise. 

7. We favor rigid restriction of the ser- 
vile immigration now coming to this coun- 
try from Europe, and shall aid bj' every 
means in our power to uphold the dignity 
and manhood of native American citizen- 
ship. 

We rejoice that sectionalism is a thing 
of the past. 

S. We favor the estaunshment of the Ap- 
palachian Park, and pledge any Republi- 
can Congressman elected from this State 
to be its friend; but its establishment 
must be the work of Republican states- 
manship and those its friends miscount

ets of the courts in very many counties re- 
main clogged, though judges and solici- 
tors have been increased in number and 
in pay. 

We are unalterably opposed to frauds 
upon the suffrage, and we believe that the | 
great amount of crime and lawlessness that j 
prevail and seem on the increase in our | 
State, including lynchings, are due to the j 
licentious tonKU"S of Democratic orators | 
and others who teach and advise that it is i 
right to commit crime and fraud for the j 
Di mocratic party. Honest men can see no I 
difference between stealing a ballot and .1 | 
hors? — betwen a false return of the result | 
of an election and a false oath in the court- I 
Tiouse and a false verdict in the jury-box. 1 

That it is the sense of this convention 
that town and city poll-tax in North Oar- ; 
olina should not exceed one dollar. I 

And, whereas, some dissensions have 
arisen among Rrpub icans on account of j 
contests ovi r appointments to Federal of- 1 
fices, which, with charecs and counter- 
charg-es, have been given undue prominence 
by the Democratic press; and whereas, the ' 
Di mocratic party has b "en enabled to re- ] 
tain its hold upon the State government by | 
appeals to race prejudice, references to the 
disorders and confusion resulting from the 



war and "the days of '68," as well as the 
manifold repetition of the statement that 
all Republicans are office-seekers: 

It is therefore now Resolved: That the 
State Executive Committee of the Itepub- 
lican party be and it is hereby instructed 
to assemble, and each and every member 
thereof, in Greensboro, N. C. , on the first 
day of September, 1906, and on the first 
days of March and September in each and 
every year hereafter, and shall then and 
there before adjournment consider applica- 
tions for appointment to all Federal offices 
in North Carolina the terms of which shall 
e.xpire in the next six months, and to rec- 
ommend to the appointing power in each 
instance a suitable person for each posi- 
tion, except in such districts as are rep- 
resented by a Republican Congressman. 
That no application shall be considered un- 
](ss the applicant shall state in liis appli- 
cation that he will submit to the action 
uiid recoinm ndation of the committee 
without further contest. 

Resolved, That the executive committee 
in making recommendations for appoint- 
m nt to Federal positions shall observe 
well that lue applicant lias the support 
of his local party friends, in addition to 
b( ing well qualified for the position.

STATE DEBT. — The old debt, excepting such as is not recognized, has mostly been 
funded under the funding laws of 1879, th_> time prescribed for the exchange having 
been extended to January 1, 1907. These 1 iws provided for the issue of (1) consoli- 
dated 4 per cent, bonds due in 1910 to fund old ante-war bonds at 40 per cent, of 
face value, "new" railroad bonds recognized as valid at 25 per cent, and bonds of 
1866 and 186S at 15 per cent., nothing being given for overdue coupons; and (2) for 
ntw consolidated 6 per cent, bonds due in 1919, for which the North Carolina R. R. 
construction bonds were made exchangeabl > at par, holders of construction bonds 
abating $240 of overdue interest on each $1,000 bond. The new bonds, both 4s and 6s, 
carry tax-receivable coupons, and are exempt from "all State, county or corporate 
taxation or assessment, direct or indirect, g.neral or special.' The 4s of 1903 are also 
exempt from taxation. 

In compliance with a decision of the United States Supreme Court handed down 
February 1, 1904, North Carolina on April 1, 1905, paid to the State of South Dakota 
!i!27,40O, representing the judgment obtain 'd by the latter State on $10,000 bonds 
(donated to the State of South Dakota for the express purpose of bringing suit, an 
individual not being able to sue a State) issued by North Carolina and secured by 100 
shares of stock of the North Carolina R. R. Co. and the holders of which had refused 
to accept the provisions of the funding law of 1879. See V. 78. p..594; V. 79, p. 1728; 
V. 80, p. 1382; and also editorials on the su'ijrct. V. 78. p. 1248; V. 80, p. 1332. 
Tlie State al.so settled with the remaining holders of this particular class of unfunded 
bonds, issuing the $250,000 bonds of 1935 mentioned below to provide means of 
payment. 

An amendment to the State Constitution passed by the Legislature in 1879 and 
ratified by popular vote in 1880 foi'bids the General Assembly to pay or recognize as 
valid the" following bonds: Special tax bonds, $11,366,000; bonds to Chatham R. R., 
1S6S, .*!. 030.000, and to Williamston & Tar^uiro H. R., $1.50.000; penitentiary bonds of 
1868, $44,000, "unless the proposing to pay the same shall have first been submitted 
to the people and by them ratified by the vote of a majority of all the oualified voters 
of the Stat? at a regular election held fo;- the purpose." The special tax bonds 
were in three classes, class 1 bearing th-> coupon of April, 1809, and since; class 2 
bearing the coupon of October, 1869; class 3 bearing the coupon of April, 1870. Hold- 
ers of the special tax bonds brought suit tj establish the validity of their bonds and 
the case was decioed in favor of the State.

INDEBTEDNESS AND RESOURCES OF NORTH CAROLINA. 



To the foregoing we should add the furtlier fact that the State does not have to 
raise money for the interest on the 6 per cent bonds for the reason that the lease of 
the North Carolina R. R. provides a fund for the payment of the interest thereon, 
and the State liolds three millions (par value) in the stock of the road, which if 
sold would much more than pay the principal. In addition the State holds other 
stocks and bonds valued at $1,028,000. 

ASSESSED VALUATION- -Tlie Slate's a.^sessed valuation prior to 1903, was made on the 
basis of about 2-3 of the cash value; in 1903, however, the attempt was to assess at 
tiue value, which accounts for the large increases in that year.
