Declaration of Principles
Th Republican of th L'nlled Statu,
assembled by their representative In
National Convention, appealing for the
popular and historical justification of
their claim to the matchlua achieve
ments of thirty year of Republican
rule, earnestly and confidently address
themselves to the awakened Intelli
gence, experience and conscience of
their countrymen In th following dec
laration of facta and principles:
For the first time aince the Civil
War the American people have wit
nessed th calamitous conaequences of
full and unrestrained Democratic con
trol of the Government It haa been
a record of unparalled Incapacity, dis
honor and disaster. In administrative
management It has ruthltuly sacrific
ed Indlpenlble revenue, entailed an
unceasing deficit, eked out ordinary
current expenses with borrowed money.
piled up the public debt by IM.OOO.OOO
In time of peace, forced an adverse bal
ance of trails, to a perpetual menace
hanging over the redemption fund,
pawned American credit to alien syn
dicates and reversed all the measures
and reault of successful Republican
rule. In the broad effect of Its policy
It has precipitated panic, blighted In
dustry and trade with prolonged de
pression, closed factories, reduced work
and wage, halted enterprise and crip
pled American production while stimu
lating foreign production for the Amer
ican market. Every consideration of
public safety and Individual Interest
demands that the government shall be
rescued from the hand of those who
have shown themselves Incapable of
conducting It without disaster at home
and dishonor abroad, and shall be re
stored to the party which for thirty
year administered It with uneqiialed
ucceis and prosperity.
A Protective Tarifl.
We renew and emphasize our allegi
ance to the policy of protection aa the
bulwark of American Industrial Inde
pendence and the foundation of Amer
ican development and prosperity. This
true American policy taxes foreign pro
ducts and encourages home Industry;
it puts the burden of revenue on for
eign goods. It secures the American
market for the American producer; It
upholds the American standard of
wages for the American workingman;
It puts the factory by the side of the
farm, and makes the American fanner
lea dependent on foreign demand and
price; it diffuses general thrift and
found the strength of all on the
strength of each. In Its 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 as 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
ducts a will not only furnish adequate
revenue for the necessary expenses of
the government, but will protect Amer
ican labor from degradation 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 With Oilier Nations.
We believe the repeal of the reci
procity arrangements 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
measures 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 the production on
American soil of all the sugar the,
American people use, and for 'which
they pay other countries more than
Wool and 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 marine
and the protection of our shipping In
the foreign carrying trade, so that
American ships the product of Amer
ican labor, employed in American ship
yards, sailing under the Stars and
Stripes, and manned, officered and
owned by Americans may regain the
carrying of our foreign commerce.
The Financial Issue.
"The Republican party is unreserv
edly for sound money. It caused the
enactment of the law providing for the
resumption of specie payments In 1879;
since then every dollar haa been aa
good aa gold. We ar unalterably op
posed to every measure calculated to de
base our currency or impair the credit
of our country. W are, therefore, op
posed to the free coinage of silver, 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 wa 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 we favor all
measures designed to maintain Inviola
ble the obligations of the 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 the Union armies de
serve and should receive fair treatment
and generous recognition. Whenever
practicable they should be given th
preference In the matter of employ
ment, and they axe entitled to the en
actment of such laws as best calculat
ed to secure the fulfillment of the
pledges made to them In the dark days
of the country's peril. We denounce
the practice of the pension bureau so
recklessly and unjustly carried on by
the present administration, of reducing
pensions and arbitrarily dropping
names from the rolls, as deserving the
severest condemnation of the American
Our foreign policy should be at all
times firm, vigorous and dignified, and
all our Interests In the western hemis
phere carefully watched and guarded.
The Hawaiian Islands 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 West Indies.
The massacres In Armenia, have
aroused the deep sympathy and just
Indignation of the American people,
and we believe that the United States
should exercise all the Influence it can
properly exert to bring these atrocities
to an end. In Turkey, American real
dents have been exposed to the gravest
dangers and American property de
stroyed. There and everywhere Amer
ican cltlxens and American property
must be absolutely protected at all
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
vention In case of European encroach
ment. We have not Interfered, and
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 the
