Gome my good old fellows, come,
And join in freedom’s song;
Join in it with a mighty haste,
And move the folks along;
Join in it all ye knights of labor
What a mighty throng
VV hile we are marching to victory.
Come on ! come on ! the victory’s nigh ;
•Come on ! come on ! we’ll get there by
So we’ll join together in the nations of
And we’ll make a strike for victory.
We'll work to bring high taxes down
And raise our wages up,
e’ll work to knock the bankers out
And put them in the soup,
For Molly and the baby, oh !
Our cause we’ll ne’er give up
While we go marching to victory.
We're young in years but growing
Working for Uncle Sam,
For transportation to control
Wheat gamblers just the same
To drive monopolies from our homes
And the protective sham,
While we go marching to victory.
Then leave the D. O. P. my friend,
And join us on the way,
The People’s Party is marching on
And it has come to stay;
For right is might and truth is power
And we will win the day
While we go marching to victory.

SECOND DECLARATION OF AMERI
Platform Adopted by the Confederated
Industrial Organizations at St.
Louis, Feb. 22-24, 1892.
This, the first great labor conference of the
United States and of the world, representing
all divisions of urban and rural organized in
dustry, assembled in national congress, invok
ing upon its action the blessing and protection
of Almighty God, puts forth to and for the pro
ducers of the nation this declaration of union
and independence. The conditions which sur
round us best justify our co-operation. We
meet in the midst of a nation brought to the
verge of moral, political and material ruin.
Corruption dominates the ballot box, the legis
latures, congress, and touches even the ermine
of the benoh. The people are demoralized.
Many of the states have been compelled to iso
late the voters at the polling places in order to
prevent universal intimidation or bribery. The
newspapers are subsidized or muzzled, pubtic
opinion silenced, business prostrated, our
homes covered with mortgages, labor impover
ished and the land concentrating in the hands
of capitalists. The urban workmen are denied
the right of organization for self protection;
imported pauperized labor beats down their
wages; a hireling standing army, unrecognized
by our laws, is established to shoot them down,
and they are rapidly degenerating to European
The fruits of the toil of millions are boldly
stolen to build up colossal fortunes, unprece
dented in the history of the world, while their
possessors despise the republic and endanger
liberty. From the same prolific womb of gov
ernmental injustice breed the two great classes
—paupers and millionaires. The national
power to create money is appropriated to en
rich bondholders; silver, which has been ac
cepted as coin since the dawn of history, has
been demonetized to add to the purchasing
power of gold by decreasing the value of all
forms of property, as well as human labor, and
the supply of currency is purposely abridged
to fatten usurers, bankrupt enterprise and en
slave industry. A vast conspiracy against man
kind has been organized on two continents,
and is taking possession of the world. If not
met and overthrown at once it forbod«ft terri
ble social convulsions, the destruction of civili
zation, or the establishment of an absolute
In this crisis of human affairs the intelligent
working people and producers of the United
States have come together in the name of
peace, order and society to defend liberty, pros
perity and justice.
We declare our union and independence.
We assert our purpose to support the political
organization which represents our principles.
We charge that the controlling influence
dominating the old political parties have al
lowed the existing dreadful conditions to de
velop without serious effort to restrain or pre
vent them. They have agreed together to
ignore, in the coming campaign, every issue
but one. They propose to drown the outcries
of a plundered people with the uproar of a
sham battle over the tariff; so that corpora
tions, national banks, rings, trusts, “watered
stock,” tho demonetization of silver, and the
oppression of usurers, may all be lost sight of.
They propose to sacrifice our homes and chil
dren upon the altar of mammon; to destroy the
hopes of the multitude in order to secure cor
ruption funds from the great lords of plunder.
We assert that a political organization, repre
senting the political principles herein stated,
is necessary to redress the grievances of which
Assembled on the anniversary of the birth of
the illustrious man who led the first great revo
lution on this continent against oppression,
filled with the sentiments which actuated that
grand generation, we seek to restore the gov
ernment of the republic to the hands of the
“plain people,” with whom it originated. Our
doors are open to all points of the compass.
We ask all honest men to join with anef help us.
In order to restrain the extortions of aggre
gate capital, to drive the money changers out
of tlie temple, to form a perfect union, estab
lish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, pro
vide for the common defense, promote the gen
eral welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty
for ourselves and our posterity we do ordain
and establish the following platform of prin
First—We declare the union of the labor
forces of the United States this day accom
plished permanent and perpetual. May its
spirit enter into all hearts for the salvation of
the republic and the uplifting of mankind.
Second—Wealth belongs to him who created
it. Every dollar taken from industry without
an equivalent is robbery. If any one will not
■work, neither shall he eat. The interests of
rural and urban labor are the same, their ene
mies are identical.
First—We demand a national currency safe,
sound and flexible, issued by the general gov
ernment only, a full legal tender for all debts,
public and private; and that without the use
of banking corporations a just, equitable and
efficient means of distribution direct to the
people at a tax not to exceed 2 per cent, be pro
vided, as set forth in the subtreasury plan of
the Farmers’ Alliance, or some better system;
also, by payments in discharge of its obliga
tions for public improvements.
(a.) We demand free and unlimited coinage
(b.) We demand that the amount of circulat
ing medium be speedily increased to not less
than fifty dollars per capita.
(c.) We demand a graduated income tax.
(d.) We believe that the money of the country
should be kept as much as possible in the hands
of the people, and hence we demand all na
tional and state revenue shall be limited to the
necessary expenses of the government eco
nomically and honestly administered.
(e.) We demand that postal savings banks be
established by the government for the safe de
posit of the earnings of the people and to facil
Second—The land, including all the natural
resources of wealth, is the heritage of all the
people and should not be monopolized for spec
ulative purposes, and alien ownership of land
should be prohibited. All land now held by
railroads and other corporations in excess of
their actual needs, and all lands now owned by
aliens, should be reclaimed by the government
ana held for actual settlers only.
Third—Transportation being a means of ex
change and a public necessity, the government
should own and operate the railroads in the in
terest of the people.
(a.) The telegraph and telephone, like the
postoffice system, being a necessity for trans
mission of news, should be owned and oper
ated by the government in the interest of the
