Mr. Ogden Ililes was introduced as the permanent chairman for the even ing and he made a brief speech. He congratulated the meeting and Democ racy on the founding of the party organization in the county, lie felt assured that this movement of national party organization will relieve the community of the acerbities that have heretofore disturbed it We should view with satisfaction any movement that looks to breaking down the barriers of distrust He believed the organization of the national parties will do this for Utah. So he welcomed the formation of the Democratic organization, which he styled the great party of the constitution and of the people. He paid a glowing tribute to the constitution, which Gladstone has said is one of the greatest documents flint ever sprung from the minds of men. He claimed that the Democratic is the only party that is not sectional aDd does not bid for a solid north, south, east or west. It contains in its ranks more than a million majority of the whole vote of the republic. Applause. It contains the best heart and brain of the people, thejunpurchisel and unpurchasablevote of the people. Applause. It becomes the province of the party to declare a set of principles for the Weber county organization. He favored declaring opposition to the force bill Applause,! in favor of silver, for tariff reform. Applause. The task is before t ie deaiosracy of the territory to tlx Utah permanently in the column of dem- osratic states. Applause. Every democrat should help in this irrand nurnoae and should brintr to his aid all the courage, energy and judgment he possesses. And if the democracy shall prove true true to itself it will never fail in any struggle, and the people will rise up and follow it to victory. Applause. He invited the pleasure of the convention. me. sierra's remarks. Mr. Smith said, in Dart that in the history of every community there are occasions that mark the milestones of history. He thought this one of those He thought the time had occasions. come when the aggravations of the past have passed away. He saw no reason why we may not forget and forgive all that has heretofore occurred. Ho thought that the democrats have not been quite as breezy as their opponents. Ho believed in democratic principles next to the gospel itself. He gave a statement of the principle of the xiumocratic party, such as revenue for the support of the government only, the greatest possible individual liberty, the largest government of the people and so The Democratic party has controlled the government sixty of the one hundred years since its foundation, and in all that time it has never increased taxation. The present congress has at tempted to wipe out local sovereignty absolutely by the Force bill. He hoped the bill will fail at this session. It was a d very iniquitous bill, he declared. It to appropriate an indefinite sum of money for its enforcement He thought if enacted it would remain perpetually in force. It provided fer life officers to enforce it These men were to have unexampled powers in this country. 'ihe elections or Utah nave been con trolled by outside men, and be thought these men feel galled every time they sit down to interfere in an election and he asked how the people would like to continue for life u nder such a system. One of the subjects about which much will be heard is the tariff. This he called a system to make people richer by taxing them, a tax which averages $5 a And $3 person for all tbe inhabitants. of this $5 goes to the man who does not He need it, the man to be protected. argued the tariff question at length and instead that the tax falls upon the peo ple unequally and is inequitable. He declared that the tariff has created monopolies and develops trusts. He urged tbat it will make a government or classes as in Rome, rich and poor, which destroyed that government. He thought the producing classes will rise up, how pro-po.e- ana throttle this policy at the proper time. And he averred that the democratic party has ever been trying to correct this revenue error of the opposition. In the days of 19G1 everybody was dressed about the same. All were on the same plane.

Democratic Party from the earliest times in our history as a Nation. Ry that, we mean a tariff taxation sufficient to raise enough money for the support of the government economically administered, and so adjusted, as to protect such of the American industries as may for the time being need protection And we will convince you that we don't offer a few leading lines at reduced prices and against foreign competition, and so as to a high price for articles the worth of which you don't know. bear as lightly as possible, on the necescharge saries of life. Ninth We believe that the currency has been improperly and wrongfully contracted, that the necessities of commerce now demand a greater volume of money, and we favor making the necessary increase by the free coinage of silver bullion into money. In conclusion, we cordially invite without regard to past party affiliations, all those who subscribe to these principles and doctrines, to join us, and by all honorable means aid us in promoting the success and endurance of the great party of the constitution, and of the people, which having its principles founded up- 1 r--it 1 on the constitution, must in the future, I f as in the past, survive every and all other parties in the nation.
