A. L. MAXWELL O. 1 AT. a,
The Republicans ol the United States,
assembled by their delegates in National
convention, pause on the theshold of their
proceedings to honor the memory of thoir
first treat leader, the immortal champion
of liberty and the rights of the people
Abraham Lincoln; and to cover also
with wreaths of imperishable remembrance
and gratitude the heroic names of later
leaders, who have more recently been
called away from our councils Grant,
Garlield, Arthur, Logan and Conkliug.
May their memories be faithfully cher
ished. Wo also recall with our greetings and
with prayer for his recovery the name ol
one ol our living heroes whose memory
will bo treasured in the history boih of
Republicans and of the Republic the
name of that noble soldier and favorite
son of victory, Philip II Sheiidan.
In the spirit of those gte.it leaders, and
of our own devotion to human liberty, and
with that hostility to all forms of despot
ism and oppression which is the funda
mental idea of tlio Republican party, we
send fraternal congratulations to our fel
low Americans of Brazil upon their great
act of emancipation, which completed the
abolition of slavery throughout the two
American continents. Ve earnestly hope
that we may soon congratulate our fellow
citizens of Irish birth upon tho peaceful
recovery of home rule for Ireland.
We allirm our unswerving devotion to
tho National Constitution and to the in
dissoluble Union of the states : to the au
tonomy reserved the states under the Con
stitution : to the personal rights and liber
ties of citizens in alt the States and Terri
tories in the Union, and especially to
tho supreme and sovereign right of
every lawful citizen, rich or poor,
native or foreign born, white or black, to
cast ono free ballot n. public elections,
and tu have that ballot duly counted. We
hold the freo and honest popular ballot,
and the just and equal representation of
all the people, to be the foundation of our
republican government, and demand ef
fective legislation to secure the integrity
and purity of elections, which are the
fountains of all public authority. We
charcu that the present administration
and tho Democratic majority in Congress
owe their existence tu tho suppression of
the ballot by a criminal nullilication otthe

Wo are uncompromisingly in favor of
thr American system of protection. Wo
protest against its destruction proposed
by the president and his party. They
servo the interests of Kutope; we will
support the interests of America. We ac
copt the issues and confidently appeal to
the people lor their judgment. The pro
tective system must be maintained, Its
abandonment has always been followed
by general disaster to all interests, except
those of tho usurer and the sheriff. We
denounce the Mills bill as destructive to
the general business, tho labor and the
farming interests of the country, and we
heartily cudnrso tho consistent and
patriotic actions of the Republican Rep

The Republican party would effect a'l
needed reduction of the National revenue
by repealing tho taxos on tobacco, which
are an annoyance and burdeu to agriculture,
and the tax upon spirits used in the arts
and for mechanical purposes; and by such
revision of the tariff as will tend to check
imports of such articles as are. produced by
our people, thu production of which gives
employment to our labor, and release Irom
import amies those amoks ol loreign pro
duction (except luxuries) the like of which
can not no produced at home. If there
shall still remain n larger revenue that Is
requisite for the wants ot tho government
we favor tho entire repeal of internal
taxes rather than the surrender of
any part of our protcctivo system at
tho joint behest of the whisky trusts and
tho agents of foreign manufacturers.
We declare our hostility to the introduc
tion into this couutry of foreign contract
laoor, anil oi umnese labor, alien to our
civilization aud our Constitution, and we
demand the rigid enforcement of the ex
isting laws against it, and favor such Im
mediate legislation as will exclude such
labor from our shores.
We declare our opposition to all combin
ations of capital organized in trusts or other
wise, to oomrol arbitrarily the condition
of trade among our citizens, and wo com
mend to Congress and to tho State Legis
atures, in their respective juiisdictions,
such legislation as will prevent the execu
tion of all schemes to oppress the people by
undue charges on their supplios, or by un
just rates for the transpoitatiou of thoir
products to market. We approve the leg
islation by Congress to prevent alike un
just burdens aud unfair dUcriminatlous bo
twecn the SUtes.
We reaffirm the policy of appropriating
the public, lands of the United States to be
homestead for American citizens and sot
tiers, not aliens, which the Republican
partv established in 1S62, against the
persistent opposition of the Democrats in
Congress, and which has brought our great
coiciu uuiimin nuu tutu iiiagmnconi
ilevelopmout, The restoration of unearn
ed land grants to the public domain for
the use nf actual settlers, which was beguu
under the administration of President Ar
thur, should be continued, We deny that
the democratic psrty has ever restored one
aero to the people, but declare that by the
joint action ot republicans aud democrats,
about fifty mitlious ol acre of unearned
laivlt originally grauted for the construe
tion ot railroads have been restored to the
public domain, in pursuance of the coudi
lions inserted by the republican party tn
the original guuts. We chjrgs the dem
ocratic adiuirustiation with failure to exe
cute the laws scouring to settler title to
their homesteads, od with using appro
bations made for that purpose to haras
inuocent settlers with spies and prosecu
tious uuder false pretence of exposing
frauds and vindicating the law.

them, to form for themselves a constitution
and State government, and be admitted
into the Union. Pending the prepara
tion for Statehood, all officers hereof
should be selected from the bona fide
residents and citizens ot the Territory
wherein they are to serve. South Dakota
should of right be immediately admitted
as a State in the Union, under the con
stitution framed and adopted by the
people, and we heartily indoise the action
of the Republican Senate in twice
passing bills for her admission. The
refusal of the Democratic House of
Representatives, for partisau purposes, to
favorably consider tbeso bills, s a willful
violation of the sacred American principle
of local self-government, and merits the
condemnation of all just men. The
pending bills in the Senate for acts to i
enable the people of Washington, North
Dakota and Montana Territories to form
constitutions should be passed without
unnecessary delay. The republican party
pledges usell toao all in its power to fa
cilitate the admission of the territories of
New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho and Ari
zona to the enjoyment of telf-gosemment
as states, sucn 01 them as are now quali
fied, as soon as possible, and the others as
soon as they may become so.
Iho political power of the Mormon
church in the territories, as experienced in
the past, is a menace to free institutions
too dangerous to be long suffered. There
fore we pledge tho republican party to ap
propriate legislation asserting the sover
eignty of the nation in all territories
where tho same is questioned, and in
furtherance of that end to plixe upon the
statute books legislation stringent enough
to divorce the political from the ecclesias
tical power, and thus stamp out the
attendant wickedness of polygamy.
The republican party is in favor of the
use of both gold and silver as money, and
condemns the policy of the democratic
administration in its efforts to demonetize
We demand the reduction of letter
postage to 1 cent per ounce.
In a republic like ours, where the
citizen is the sovereign and the official the
servant, where no power is exercised
except by the will of the people, it is
important that the sovereign the people
should possess intelligence. The free
school is the promoter of that intelligence
which Is to preserve us a free nation;
therefore, the state or nation, or both
combined, should support free -institutions
of learning, sufficient to afford to everv
child growing up in the land the oppor
tunity of a good common school edu
cation. We earnestly recommend that prompt
action be taken by Congress in the en
actment of such legislation as will bet
secure the rehabilitation of our American
merchant marine, and we protest against
tho passage by Congress of a free ship
bill, as calculated to work injustice to
labor by lessening the wares of those
engaged in preparing materials, as well
as those directly employed in our ship
yards. We demand appropriations for
the early .ebuilding of our navy; for the
construction of coast fortilications aud
modern ordnonce, aud other approved
modern means of defense for the piotec
tion of our defenseless harbors and
cities; lor the payment of just pensions
to our soldiers; for necessary works of
National importance in the improvement
of harbors and the channels of internal
coastwise, and foreign commerce; for the
encouragement of the shipping interests
of the Atlantic, Gulf aud Pacific States, as
well as for the payment of the maturing
public debt. This policy will give em
ployment to our labor, activity to our va
rious industries, tucrease the security of
our country, promote trade, open new
and direct markets for our produce, and
cheapen the cost of transportation. We
allirm this to be tar better for our country
than the democratic policy of loaning the
government monoy without mterest to
The conduct of foreign affairs by the
present administration has been distin
guished by its inefficiency and us coward
ice, imving wunarawn irom me Senate
all peuding treaties effected by republican
administration for the removal of foreign
bunions and restrictions upon our cem:
merca and for its extension into better
markets, it has neither eflected norptO-
posed auy oiners 111 their stead. Profess
ing adherence to the Monroe doctrine, it
nas seen with Idle complacency the exten
sion of foreign influence in Central
America, and of foreign trade everywhere
anionc our neighbors. It has refused to
charter, sanction or encourage any Amer-
iwuu uiKuuizuiiuu ,ur vuiisiructiug me

ance to the maintenance of the Monroe
doctrine, and of our national influence in
Central and South America, and neces
sary for the development ol trado with
our Pacific territory, with South America
and with the islands and further coasts of
the Pacific Ocean.
We arraign the present democratic ad
ministration for its weak and unpatriotic
treatment of the fisheries questiou, and
its pusillanimous sunender of the etsen
tial privileges to which our fUlune vessels
are entitled in Canadian ports under the
treaty of 1S1S, the reciprocal maritime
legislation of I830, and the comity of
iiuuoiis, nuu which ianauian hsntni; ves
sels receive in the ports of tho United
States. We condemn the policy of the
piesent administration and the democratic
majority in Congress Inward our fisheries

and follow and protect him abroad in
whatever land he may be op a lawful
grades of the service to which it is applic
able. The spirit and purpose of the re
form should be observed in all executive
appointments, and alt laws at variance
with the object of existing reform legisla
tion should be repealed, to the end that
the danger to free institutions which lurks
in the power of official patronage may be
wisely and effectively avoided."
The gratitude of the nation to the de
fenders of the union cannot be measured
by laws. The legislation ot Congress
should conform to the pledges made by a
loyal people, and be so enlarged and ex
tended as to ptovide against the possibility
that any man who honorably wore he
federal uniform shall become the inmate
of an almshouse, or dependent upon
private charity. In the presence of an
overflowing treasury it would be a public
scandal to do less for those whose valor
ous service preserved the government.
We denounce the hostile spirit shown by
President Cleveland in his numerous
vetoes of measures for pension relief, and
the action of the democratic house of
representatives in refusing even a consid
eration ol general pension legislation.
In support of the principles herewith
enunciated we invite the co-operation ol
patriotic men of all parties, and especially
ol all worktngmen whose prosperity is
seriously threatened by the free trade
policy of the present administration.
Additional plank submitted by Mr.
Boutelle of Maine, and adopted by an
almost unanimous vote; The first con
cern ot all good government is the virtue
