1, Rksoi.vkd, That ' reaffirm the time
honored maxim: "Equal and exact justice to
all men; speci.il privileges to none."
2. That we heartily endorse President Cleve
land and his admiui.tration in their etforU to
purify the public service, to restore the admin
istration of federal government to the practice
of honesty which existed helore the govern
ment was prostituted by the Republican party
to partisan uses, personal ends and class legis
lation. H. That we endorse the sentiment and sug
gestions nt President Cleveland in his special
message to Congress favoring a system of arbi
tration ' of liitferences lietween capital and
labor, employer and employe.
4. We favor a tariff for revenue, limited to
the tioesasities of the government, economically
ftdbiiniMlix't but aa any tariff for revenue
mnst of necessity afford some protection Inci
dents lly, we therefore favor such an adjust
ment as to prevent unequal burdens and en
co.irage the pnsluctkn of industries at home,
and to slfonl just coinHnsation to labor, but
not to create or foster monopolies. Therefore,
as a matter of justice, the wil growing inter
ests of the country should receive the same
benefit from a tariif as the manufacturers of
woolen gissls; and we condemn the action of a
Republican Congress in reducing the tariff oil
wool and increasing the tariif on woolen goods.
5. That we heartily endorse the present ad
ministration in its etfirts to build up ft navy
efficient and able to protect our sea coast and
our commerce, and to maintain and defend our
j :Uhts wherever our H i,' llo:tts, against any and
every assault; and we lielieve that a reasoualue
isirtion of suriiliis revenues slionlil lie appropri
ated for the construction and armament of eis.-lt
naval vessels, and that all material needed
therefor and for the buildii.g up of our mer
chant marine should be free from all tasation,
and such vessels should he constructed, equip
ped and armed at our own ship yards and
shops and by our own workmen.
IS. In harmony with the record of the Demo
cratic party in the state and nation, we hireby
lleilge the party ami its canilnute to use an
awful means hskiug toward the speedy ter
mination ot existing treaty relations between
the United States ond China, and the lawful
removal of all Chinese ciMilics who may now
be in the United State.
7. We nre in favor of littoral nlTToiiriatlons
commensurate with their Importance for the
hays, harbors and rivers of Oregon, includiuu

I illainook anil t'ort Utlnril nays.
8. That we uru'e uimiii our national govern

and sufficient lands surrounding said lake for a
!. That the prodigality of the Hepuhlican
party while in power, in granting jsnmdless
tracts of tho pnbliu lands to corporations coin
Hed of political managers and officeholders,
under pretense of providing the country with
railroads and wagon roads, and in upholding
these grants in violation of law in casea where
the grantees did not pretend to comply with
the conditions of the grant, tni juntly merited
the outspoken rebuke of every Americau citi

that everv such urant liecama void and was ab

rescued from the grasp of speculators should be
lH-stowed in small tracts to actual settlers
under the laws now in form, or such as may be
hereafter enacted; and that the efforts of l'res
ident Cleveland and tho officers under him to
restore to tho people an amount of the public
douiaiu equal in area to tuat of the cmiibinul

won the uratituile and contiilcuoM of the labor

stone, the English premier and l'arnell, and
with their c patriots, in their euoris to
ameliorate tho condition of (tie Irish people,
and wish them Gjd snjed in securing homo
rule for I inland.
11. That we are In furor of the enactment of
state laws providing for the appointment of a
state board of arbitration, to the end that all
differences between labor and capital may be
equitably adjusted, with (Ine regal d to both
laborers irtid emiiloyers.
12. That we are opposed to any unjust dis

voters of the state of Oregon of the pending
amendment to the constitution of our state reg

in our midst as that the children of the
rich and poor alike may have theopertunities
of obtaining an education commensurate with
our advancing civilixatiou.
10. That we arralirn the Republican major
ity of the recent session of the state legislature

Douglass says: I nni a Republican
ami I did a'l I could to defeat the elec
tion of Piesident Cleveland. He wa
under no political obligation whatever
yet 1 hold tho position of Recorder"
nearly a whole years under hia ndinin-'
istration, an office of law held, tot for"
any term, but solely at the pleasure of
the President. While I was in oflfiic'
President Cleveland treatfd m as he'
treated other oflioe horlders Irt tho dis-
trict. He was have enough to invite'
Mrs. Douglas and myself to all his
grand receptions, thus rebuking tho'
timidity, I will not nay cowardice, or
prejudice, of his predecessors. I om
Republican, and, if living, shall do all
I con to elect a Republican in 1888,
but I honor manliness whenever I tinrf
it, and I found it in President Clove
land, and I Khould despise myself if 1
should let anybody think otherwise.
Whatever else he may lie he is not1 tt
