aftor a hurrah campaign through the

Houth were (lepertlng his standard. One

This was clearly developed at Wll
mlngton on Monday last, when he
launched out In one of the vilest tlrad a
against the minister of the onuntry In
dlscrlmlnatnly, because they have had
thn courage. In many Instances, to de
clare for public and private honesty
and the maintenance of public and prt
vat credit. The Wilmington New thus
report Mr. Ilryan's brutal assault upon
the ministers aa a class delivered In
"In hi BM-rh In the Auditorium lost

In ease, opulence and luxury; that
"they were unnciuulnted with and had

There were several minister In the

axalnst the minister of. the country,
and among them waa Rev. Francis B.
Short, pastor of the Harrison Street

In a letter to the Press, eaklng of
Ilryan's speech, aya:
"HI denunciation of clergymen waa

Such a speech, made by one who is a
andldate for the highest civil trust of
the world, could not have been deliv
ered by any other than one who is dis
tempered In mind and felt that his own
defeat was Inevitable. It was mid
summer madness, even if he believed It,
thus to attack the great organised
agency of our religion and our clvlllxa

the highest standard of effort In the

and law and order.
It Is not surprising that Rev. Mr.
Short, who heard the utterances of Mr.
Ilryan at Wilmington, appeals to his
brethren of every persuasion "to reg

Th Republican of th United State,
assembled by their representative In
National Convention, appealing for th
popular and historical Justification of
tlir.tr claim to the matchless achieve
ment of thirty year of Republican
rule, earnestly and confidently address
themselves to the awakened Intelli
gence, experience and conscience ot
their countrymen In tha following dec
laration of fact and principles:
For th first time alnce the Civil
War th American people hav wit-
Messed th calamitous consequence of
full and unrestrained Democratic con
trol of the Government It ha been
a record of unparalled Incapacity, dis
honor and disaster. In administrative
management It has ruthlessly sacrific
ed Indlspenalbl revenue, entailed an
unceasing deficit, eked out ordinary
current expense with borrowed money,
plied up the public debt by 1262,000.000
In time of peace, forced an adverse bal
ance of trade, to a perpetual menace
hanging over the redemption fund,
pawned American credit to alien yn
dicate and reversed all th measure
and result of auccessful Republican
rule. In the broad effect of ita policy
It haa precipitated panic, blighted in
duatry and trade with prolonged d
prtaalon, closed factories, reduced work
and wages, halted enterprise and Clip-
pled American production while stimu
lating foreign production for the Amer
ican market. Every consideration of
public safety and individual Interest
demand that the government shall be
rescued from the hands of those who
hav ahown themaelvea incapable of
conducting It without disaster at home
and dishonor abroad, and shall be re
stored to the party which for thirty
years administered it with unequaled
uccess and prosperity.
A Protective Tariff.
We renew and emphasize our allegi
ance to the policy of protection as th
bulwark of American lndu trial Inde
pendence and the foundation of Amer
ican1 development and prosperity. This
true American policy taxes foreign pro
duct and encourage horn Industry;
it put the burden of revenue on for
eign goods. It secure th American
market for th American producer; It
uphold the American standard of
wage for the American working-man;
it put th factory by th side of the
farm, and makes the American farmer
less dependent on foreign demand and
price; it diffuse general thrift and
found the strength of all on the
strength of each. In It reasonable ap
plication It is 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 a sectional. Injurious to the pub
lic credit and destructive to business
enterprise. We demand such equitable
tariff on foreign Imports which come
Into competition with American pro
duct as will not only furnish adequate
revenue for the necessary expense of
the government, but will protect Amer
ican labor from degredatlon to the
wage level of other lands We are not
pledged to any particular schedules.
The question of rates Is a practical
question, to be governed by the condi
tions of the time and production; the
ruling and uncompromising principle
Is the protection and development of
American labor and Industry. The
country demands a right settlement
and then it wants rest
Reciprocity Wi h Oilier Nations.
We believe the repeal of the reci
procity arrangement negotiated by the
last Republican administration was a
national calamity, and we demand
their renewal and extension on such
terms as will equalise our trade with
other nations, remove the restrictions
which now obstruct the sale of Amer
ican products in the ports of other
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 has
recklessly struck down 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
Industry and trade and secures our
own market for ourselves. Reciprocity
builds up foreign trade and finds an
outlet for our surplus. ,
Protection to Sugar 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 Uie production on
American soil of all the sugar th
American people use, and for which
they pay other countries 'more than
Wool and Woolens.
To all our products to those of th
mine and the field, as well a 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 th moat ample protection.
We favor restoring th early Ameri
can policy of discriminating duties for
the uu-bulldlng of our merchant marine
and the protection of our shipping In
the foreign carrying trade, so that
American ship th product of Amer
lean labor, employed In American ship
yards, sailing under th Star and
Stripes, and manned, officered and
owned by American may regain th
carrying of our foreign commerce.
The Financial Issue.
"Th Republican party is unreserv
edly for sound money. It caused the
enactment of the law providing for the
resumption of specie payment In 187;
since .then every dollar ha been as
good a gold. W ar unalterably op
posed to every meaaur calculated to de
base our currency or Impair the credit
of our country. We are, therefore, op
posed to th free coinag of ailver, ex-
cept by International agreement with
the leading commercial nation of the
world, which we pledge ourselves to
promote, and until such agreement can
be obtained we believe the existing
gold standard must be preserved. All
our silver and paper currency now In
circulation must be maintained at a
parity with gold, and w favor alt
measures designed to maintain Inviola
ble the obligation of th United
States, and all our money, whether coin
or paper, at the present standard, the
standard of the most enlightened na
tions of the earth."
Pensions for Veterans.
The veterans of th Union armies de
serve and should receive fair treatment
and generous recognition. Whenever
practicable they should b given th
preference In th matter of employ
ment, and they ar entitled to the en
actment of such law as beat calculat
ed to secure the fulfillment of the
pledge mad to them in the dark days
of the country' peril. We denounce
th practice of the pension bureau so
recklessly and unjustly carried on by
the present administration, of reducing
pension and arbitrarily dropping
name from the rolls, as deserving the
severest condemnation of th American
Our foreign policy should be at all
time firm, rigorous and dignified, and
all our interests in the western hemis
phere carefully watched and guarded.
The Hawaiian Island should be con
trolled by the United States and no for
eign power should be) permltetd to In
terfere with them. The Nicaragua
Canal should be built, owned and op
erated by the United States, and by
the purchase of the Danish Islands we
should secure a proper and much-needed
naval station in the Wast Indies.
The massacres in Armenia have
aroused the deep sympathy and just
Indignation ot the American people,
and we believe that the United State
should exercise all the influence it can
properlyexert to bring these atrocities
to an end. In Turkey, American resi
dents have been exposed to the gravest
dangers and American property de
stroyed. There and everywhere Amer
ican cltisens and American property

hazards and at any cost
We reassert the Monroe doctrine In
its full extent and reaffirm the right of
the Unulted States to give the doctrine
effect by responding to the appeals of
any American state for friendly Inter

shall not Interfere, with the existing
possessions of any European power in
this hemisphere, but those possessions
must not, on any pretext, be extended.

eventual withdrawal of the European
powers from this hemisphere, and the
ultimate union ot all the English
speaking part of the continent by the
free consent of Its inhabitants.
Independence of Cuba.
From the hour of achieving their own
Independence the people of the United
States have regarded with sympathy
the struggles of other American peoples
to free themselves from European dom
ination. We watch with deep and abid
ing Interest the herolo battle of the Cu
ban patriots against cruelty and op
pression, and our best hopes go out for
the full success of their determined con-
teat for liberty.
The government of Spain, having lost
control of Cuba and being unable to
protect the property or lives of resi
dent American citizens or to comply
with Its treaty obllgatlones, we believe
that the government of the United
State should actively use Its Influence
and good offices to restore peace and
give Independence to the Island.
