THE NATIONAL SAFEGUARD.
The business depression under which i
the country surfers Is the result of a
want of confidence. All credit is bas
ed on confidence, and credit is the life
of i business. No one having good
money will invest or loan It while the
apprehension exists that he, may be
compelled to accept In repayment oth
er money of fluctuating value. It is
the confidence In the good faith of the
United States to pay the Interest and
principal of Its bonds in gold that is
the foundation lof its credit, although
these bonds do not in terms so prom
fee, but are payable In coin simply.
What would result if the government
should announce that, hereafter, it
would pay the Interest and principal
of Its bonds equally In gold or silver
Coin? The consequence would be im
mediate financial ruin a panic so
widespread, disastrous and overw helm
ing, that. In comparison, our present
depression would be prosperity. In
business affairs confidence would be
shattered, manufactures would be sus-!
pended and labor ceas 1 until "a'ties

founded on the market price of silver
bullion. A gold dollar would no long
er circulate side by side and in equal
exchange with a sliver one, but would
rise in value to a premium; it would
require nearly two silver dollars to
purchase what can now be bought for
one and labor would be paid In depre
dated silver without any advance in

every man with a sense of plain hon
esty and fair dealing to see bodies of
his fellow citizens holding Democrats,
Popallstic and Free Sliver conventions
to adopt resolutions, which, stripped
down : to their real meaning, disclose
the naked deformity of a demand for
the repudiation of their national obli

Indispensable to the welfare of the na

We hear the most bitter and malevo

italists, but who are capitalists? Every
working man, who by industry and
thrift has put aside (a part of his
wages fur a rainy day, is a capitalist
to the extent of hiB savings, and ought
to he wide-awake to the danger of
fluctuations In the value of money.
It will not be believed that the pro
verbial Intelligence of the American
working man will desert him in the
present danger which threatens to di
minish his small accumulations. He

assembled by their representatives lt
National Convention, appealing tor the
popular and historical Justification of
their claims to the matchless achieve
ment of thirty years of Republican
rule, em net.tly and confidently address
themselves to the awakened Intelli
gence, experience and conscience of
their countrymen In the following dec
laration of facts and principles:
l-'or the flint time since (he Civil
War the American people have wit
nessed the calamitous consequence of
full and unrestrained Democratic con
tr.d of the Government. It has been
a rcvoid of unpaiallid Incapacity, dl
honor and disaster. In administrative
management It ha rutliUssly sacrific
ed Indlsper.silile rexemie, entailed an
unceasing deficit, eked out ordinary
. urr nt expense with borrowed money,
piled up the public debt by l.'tti.ooo.OOO
lit time ef pence, forced an adverse hal
a me of trade. t a perpetual menace
banning over the redemption fund,
pawned American credit to alien yn-
Holies and reversed all the measures
and results of successful Republican
rule. In the broad effect of It policy
It has precipitated panic, blighted In
dustry and trade with prolonged de
pression, closed factorle. reduced work
and wages, halted enterprise and crip
pled American production while stimu
lating foreign production for the Amer
ican market F.wry consideration of
public .nfely and Individual Interest
demands that the government shall be
rescued from the hands of those who
have shown themselves Incapable of
conducting It without disaster at home i
and dishonor abroad, and shall be re- j
stored to the party which for thirty!
years administered It with unequalcd
success an I prosperity
A rrotectivf Tarirt.
We renew and emphasize our allegl-
ance to the policy of protection a th
bulwark of American Industrial Inde
pendence and the foundation of Amer
ican development and prosperity. This
true American policy taxes foreign pro
duct and encourages home Industry;
it puts the burden of revenue on for
eign goods. It secures th American
market for the American producer; it
uphold the American standard of
wage for the American worklngman;
It pat the factory by the side of th
farm, and make the American farmer
less dcndent on foreign demand and
price; It diffuses general thrift and
founds the strength of all on th
strength of each. In Its reasonable ap
plication It I Just. fair, and Impartial,
equally opposed to foreign control and
domestic monopoly, to sectional dis
crimination and Individual favoritism.
We denounce the present Democratic
tariff as sectional. Injurious to the pub
lic credit and destructive to buslne
nterprlse. We demand such equitable
tariff on foreign imports which come
Into competition with American pro-
lucts ns will not only furnish adequate
revenue for the necessary expenses of
the government, but will protect Amer-
an labor from degredatton to the
wage level of other lands. We are not
pledged to nny particular schedule.
The question of rates Is a practical
ruestlon, to he governed by the condi
tions of the time and production; the
ruling ami uncompromising principle
is the protection and develonment of
American labor nnd Industry. The
ountry demands a right settlement
and then It wants rest.
Keciirorily Willi (l;licr Naiiniis.
We believe the repeal of the reel
proclty arrangement negotiate by the
l.i.,t I.' publican administration was a
national calamity, and we demand
their renewal and extension on such
terms as will wimillze our trade with
other nations, remove the restrictions
which now obstruct the sale of Amer
ican products In th ports of cdher
countries and secure the enlarged mar
kets of our farms, forests and factories.
Protection and reciprocity are twin
measure of Republican policy, and go
hand In hand. Democratic rule han
recklessly struck dow n both, and both
must be re-established. Protection for
what we produce, free admission for
the necessaries of life which we don't
produce, reciprocal agreements of mu
tual Interest which gain open markets
for us in return for our open market to
others. Protection builds up domestic
inoiiMiry ami trade and secures our
own market for ourselves. Reciprocity
builds up foreign trade and finds an
outlet for our surplus.
Protection to Suirar Producers.
We condemn the present administra
tion for not keeping faith with the
sugar producers of this country. The
Republican party favors such protec
tion as will lead to the production on
American soli of all the sugar the
American people use, and for which
they pay other countries more than
Wool 'ami Woolens.
To all our products to those of the
mine and the field, as well as to those
of the shop and the factory to hemp
to wool, the product of the great indus
try of sheep husbandry, as well as to
the finished woolens of the mill we
promise the most ample protection.
We favor restoring the early Ameri-
can policy of discriminating duties for
the up-bulldlng of our merchant inurliiu
and the protection of our shipping In
the foreign carrying Undo, so that
American sblps-iho product of Amer
ican labor, employed lit Amnrlcan ship

The massacre In Armenia hv
aroused the deep sympathy and Just
Indignation of the American people,
and we believe that the United State
hould exercise all the Influence It can
properly exert to bring these atrocltle
to an end. In Turkey. American rel
dents hare been exposed to the gravest
dangers nnd American property de

ican clt liens and American property
must be absolutely protected l all

We reassert the Monroe doctrine in
Its full extent and reaffirm th right of
the Unulted States to give the doctrine
effect by responding to the appeals of
any American state for friendly Inter
vention In case of European encroach
ment. We have not Interfered, nnd
shall not Interfere, with the existing
possessions of any European power In
this hemisphere, but those possessions
must not, on any pretext, be extended.
We hopefully look forward to tho
eventual withdrawal of the European
powers from this hemisphere, and the
ultimate union of all the English
speaking part of the continent by the
free consent of Its Inhabitants.
Independence of I'nlia.
From the hour of achieving their own
Independence the people of tho United
States have regarded with sympathy
the sf-ruggles of other American peoples
to free themselves from European dom
ination. We watch with deep and abid
ing Interest the heroic battle of the Cu
ban patriots against cruelty and op

the full success of their determined con-
teat for liberty.
The government of Spain, having lost
control of Cuba and being unable to

and good offices to restore peace and
give Independence to the Island.
