DEMOCRATIC CLUBS.

Letter by Chairman Jones.

The following letter by the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee speaks for itself, and should receive prompt attention by all interested in the success of Democracy at the coming election:

NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE,

AUDITORIUM HOTEL ANNEX,

CHICAGO, September 12, 1896. MY DEAR SIR: Against the people, in this campaign are arrayed the consolidated forces of wealth and corporate power. The classes which have growe fat by reason of Federal legislation and the single gold standard have combined to fasten their fetters still more firmly upon the people, and are organizing every precinct of every county of every State in the Union with this purpose in view.

To meet and defeat this corrupt and unholy alliance, the people themselves must organize and be organized, and we feel that no plan can be more efficacious and successful than a club organization in every precinct in the several States. We write to you personally and ask you, for the sake of the people and Democracy, to bend your every energy at once to begin this work in your county. The National Association of Democratic Clubs will aid you by every means in its power. Please at once urge your committeemen of each precinct in your county to aid you personally in this all important work. As soon as a club is organized let the Secretary communicate with Lawrence Gardner, Secretary of the National Association of Democratic Clubs, Washington, D. C., who will enroll it in the National Association without cost, furnish it a certificate of membership, and render it further assistance in the prosecution of its work. I have addressed the chairman of your State Committee also upon this subject.

The importance of this organization can not be overestimated. A Bryan and Sewall Club in every voting precinct will exert a power which could not be secured in any other way. It will minimize the effect of the millions of dollars that are being used against us, and defeat those influences which wealth and corporate power are endeavoring to use to override the will of the people and corrupt the integrity of free institutions. Hoping that you will put your whole soul into this work, I am,

Very truly yours, (Signed)

: JAMES K. JONES, Chairman Democratic National Committee.

Objects of the Association. The objects of this Association are as follows:

To foster the formation of permanent Democratic clubs and societies throughout the United States, and insure their active co-operation in disseminating Jeffersonian principles of government;

To preserve the Constitution of the United States, the autonomy of the States, local self-government, and freedom of elections;

To resist revolutionary changes and the centralization of power;

To oppose the imposition of taxes beyond the necessities of government economically administered;

To promote economy in all branches of the public service;

To oppose unnecessary commercial restrictions for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many;

To oppose class legislation, which despoils labor and builds up monopoly;

To maintain inviolate the fundamental principle of Democracy—“Equality before the Law," and

To co-operate with the regular organization of the Democratic party in support of Democratic men and Democratic measures.

Who May Join. The enlarged scope of the organization is explained in the following let. ter by its Secretary: HEADQUARTERS NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF DEMOCRATIC CLUBS,

736 FIFTEENTH STREET N. W.,

WASHINGTON, D. C. In answer to many inquiries, I take this opportunity to declare that any organization pledging its support to the platform and the candidates of the Democratic Convention held at Chicago, will be admitted to full membership in this Asssociation, and thereby entitled to representation at the St. Louis Convention of this Association, which will probably be the grandest political gathering ever witnessed in this country.

It is not necessary in this campaign that organizations should be composed exclusively of Democratic voters or bear a name indicative of this fact. All will be welcomed (without cost) and a handsome certificate of membership given. This is Democracy!

LAWRENCE GARDNER,

Secretary. September 1, 1896.
