THE BEPUBLIUAN PLATFORM.
First We favor honest and effi
cient administration of the depart
ments of government, both state
Second-The right of the citizen
to vote, as authorized by law, and
to have his vote honorably counted,
ought to bo respected and all ef
forts to control or limit that right
deserves the condemnation of all
Third That while disclaiming
the right to interfere with the ad
ministration of the internal affairs
of foreign nations, wo sincerely ap
prove the ellorts ot Irish ana iin-
glish statesmen to secure by peace
ful methods the American princi
ple of "home rule" for Ireland.
Fourth That wo are in favor of
such legislation as should prohibit
and punish the manufacture of
Fifth That wa are in favor of
the enactment of a law by con
gress, whereby the homestead or
pre-emption rights of settlers shall
not be forfeited by cancellation of
filings by the land department
when settlement or filing is made
in good faith.
Sixth That we favor the en
couragement and development of
our state by the construction of
railroads and other systems of
transportation, and that we hold
all corporations to be strictly re
sponsible to their liabilities under
the law, and recognize the right of
the legislature to enact all reason
able limitations on corporate power.
Seventh. That wc regard the
further immigration into the Uni
ted States of Chinese laborers as
directly opposed to the interests
of American labor; and we there
fore heartily approve the action of
the Republican senate in provid
ing by proper legislation for so
amending our treaties with China
as to prevent their further immigra
Eighth. We recogniso that the
nation owns a debt to the surviv
ing veterans of the rebellion which
cannot be adequately repaid, and
hold it to be the duty of the gener
al government to provide for the
necessities of them and their's by
prompt payment of liberal pen
sions. Ninth. That the action of presi
dent Cleveland in ordering the ro
turn of the rebel flags was an t.s
warranted assumption of the ritrm
to use for political purposes, . ti"
trophies of a valor he did not pos
sess and the fruits of a victory lie
did not help to secure.
Tenth. While we approve every
honest effort to preserve our pub
lic lands by tho punishment of
willful trespassers upon them, and
are in favor of such measures as
will encourage our citizens to set
tle upon and improve them, we
condemn the action of the present
administration in its pretended
efforts to protect such lands under
color of which, instead of pursuing
the policv of the Republican ad
ministration by causing tho arrest
and puntshment of those only
whose actions appeared to have
been dishonest and criminal. It
has refused to cause said lauds to
be surveyed, therefore discourag
ing their settlememt by people
needing and desiring to take them
The administration also filled tne
countrv with a horde of officers
styling themselves "special agents
oi tne interior department, who
have been made to act as spie.3
and informers upon such of the
honest citizens as have ventured
to settle upon tho public lands for
the purpose of carving for them
selves homes in the wilderness and
has caused the arrest of honest
settlers upon those lands upon
charges false and infamous, and
publicy branding them as robbprs
and thieves, has cansed them to bo
dragged into both tho civil and
criminal courts to be tried upon
false and fictitious charges, there
by compelling them to incur the
expense of two defenses against
the same act; has caused these same
special agents to raise questions
and disputo the right of honest
citizens to require title to the pub
lic landsNipon which they have
honestly and in rood, faith settled
and for which they have paid their
monev and acting upon the sugges
tionl of these acents the officials
havinrr such matters in charge
have under the direction of the ad
ministration, like a court organized
to convict, deprived the settler of
his land, robbed him of the benefit
of his lajjor end refused to return
his money; and these wrongs have
been perpetuated against the set
tler with no apparent object but to
furnish a pretext for so-called
Eleventh That the policy of
the Democratic administration,
which would place wool and lum
ber on the free list, and woolen
goods on the highly protected list,
cotton prints on the free list, aud
other similar articles; hoop iron on
the protected list; and which poli
cy would continue the collection of
$50,000,000 on sugar each year,
while at tho same time the major
ity appluad the claim to carry out
the president s idea that a tariff
tax is aobbery of the people, con
stitutes a piece of unparalleled po
litical dishonesty, having lor its
sole objact the sucess of the Dem
ocratic party at the next election,
even at the expense of the practi
cal destiuction of many of our
most important agricultural and
-Iwelveth Wo favor the policy
of providing, chiefly for the re
venues of the general government
and for the purposes essential to
the general government' a system
of duties levied upon imports so
adjusted as to discriminate in favor
of domestic industries and produc
tions and in favor of American la
bor, and we declare in favor of re
ducing the annual surplus rev
enues of the government by ad
mitting free of dnt' such articles
of general use as cannot be large
ly produced or manufactured bv
our own people.
thirteenth ihat wa deprecate
the attempts of the Democratic
administration to degrade the hon
est toil of America to a level with
pauper-labor of the old world.
Fourteenth We denounce and
deplore tho refusal of president
Cleveland to approve the river and
haih.ir hill, and we opnounce the
action of the secretary of war in
what feenis to be a studied at
tempt to delay the improvement
of tne Columbia river; and fully
recognizing tho importance -f our
great waterways as regulators nf
freight charges, not only un the!
watoiways themselves but on the'
railroads us well, we insi.st that!
our rivers should be free and open j
to the sea, and we demand of the '
general government's needed ap
propriations therefor. At the same
time we recommend the next leg
islaturu to take proper and ade
quate steps to asist at once in
opening the great river to general
Lastly We denounce the civil
service refonn professions of pres
ident Cleveland ai a sham and a
fraud, as promises made to secure
votes before election, and the vio
lation of which has been as con
stant as the Democratic office
seekers could demand.
Exactly What Is Sought After.
A safe, reliable, harmless, not re
pulsive remedy that can bo taken with
out chanRins the regular diet or disor
ganinK the system ; a vegetable com
pound assisting nature to get rid of im
purities in a gradual manner as nature
Intended. Such is Simmon's Liver Reg
ulator, and a trial proves this to the
most skeptical. Complete satisfaction
Is guaranteed, ami certainly it is a sat
isfaction to find the head clear, the
bowels regular, the blood purified and
the breath sweet.

The Whole Vital Machinery
Depends for the fuel, which is the origin nf
its propuKory force upon the stomach, lu
that hidden alembic the food undergoes the
chemical chance s which transmute it Into

of tissue. These, of course, are greatly aug

Is deni-lvedlof sustenance. Hostetters's Stom

from its proper channel, wtucii causes con
stipation, is also remedied by it. Heartburn
