The Republicans ol the United Slates,
assembled by their delegates in National
convention, psuse on the theshold of their
proceedings to honor the memory of their
first great leader, the immortal champion
of liberty and the rights of the people
Abraham Lincoln; and lo 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 Conklmg.
May their memories bo faithfully cher
We also recall with our greetings and
with prayer for his recovery the name ol
one of our living heroes whose memory
will be treasured in the history both of
Republicans and of the Republic the
name of that noble soldier and favorite
son of victory, Philip II Sheridan.
In the spirit of those great leaders, and
of our own devotion to human liberty, and
wilh that hostility to all forms ol despot
ism and oppression which is the funda
mental idea of tho Republican party, we
send fraternal congratulations to our fel
low Americans of Uraiil upon their great
act ol emancipation, which completed tho
abolition of slavery throughout the two
American continents. Ve earnestly hope
that we may soon congratulate our fellow
citizens of Irish birth upon the peaceful
recovery of home rule for Ireland.
We affirm our unswerving devotion to
the National Constitution and to ths 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 all the States and Terri
tories in tho Union, and especially to
the supreme aud sovereign right of
every lawful citizen, rich or poor,
native or foreign born, white or black, to
cast ono free ballot li. public elections,
and to have that ballot duly counted. We
hold the free 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 securn the integrity
and purity of elections, which are the
fountains of all public authority. We
chargo that the present administration
and the Democratic majority in Congress
owe their existence to the suppression of
the ballot by a criminal nullification of the
Constitution and laws of the United

the American system of protection. We

cept tho issues and confidently appeal lo-j
the people lor their judgment, ine pro
tective system must be mainta'ned. Its
abandonment hus always been fjllowed
by general disaster to all interests, except
thoso of tho usurer and thu sheriff. We
denounce the Mills bill as destructive to
tho general business, tho labor aud the
farming interests of the country, and we
heartily endoree thu consistent nnd

The Republican party would effect a'l
needed roduction of the National revenue
by repealing the taxos on tobacco, which

and the tax upon Bpinis used in the arts
and for mechanical purposes; and by such
revision of the tariff as will lend to check
imports of sucli article as are produced by

we favor tho entire repeal of internal
uxes rather than the surrender of
any part of our protective system nt
thu joint behest of the whisky trusts and
thu agents of fjreign manufacturers.
We declare our hostility to the introduc
tion into this couutry of foreign contract
labor, and of Chinese labor, alien to our
civilization and our Constitution, and we
demand the rigid i-nforcemeiit of the ex
isting laws against it, und favor such im
mediate legislation us will exclude such
labor from our shores.
We declare our opposition to all combin
ations of capital organized in trusts or otker
wine, to control arbitrarily the condition
of tiade among our citizens, ami wu com

We reaffirm the policy of appropriating
the publio lands of the United States to be
homesteads, for American citizens and set
tlers, not aliens, which the Republican
parly established in 1 802, against the
persistent opposition of the Democrats in
Congress and which Iim brought our great
Western domain into such magnificent
development. Tha restoration of unearn
ed laud grants to the public domain for
the use of actual settlers, which was begun
under the administration of President Ar
thur, should be continued. We deny that
the democratic patty has ever restored one
acre to the people, but declare that by the
joint action of republicans aud democrats,
about fifty millions ol acres of unearned
lands originally granted lor the construc
tion of railroads have been restored to th:
public domain, in pursuance of the condi
tions inserted by the republican party in
the original grants. We charge the dem
ocratic administiation with failure to exe
cute the laws securing to settlers titles to
their homesteads, and with using appro
bations made for that purpose to harass
innocent settlers with spies and prosecu
tions under false prettnee of exposing
frauds and vindicating the law.
The government by Congress of the
Territories is based upon necessity only,
to the end that they may become States
in the Union; therefore .whenever the con
ditions of population, material resources,
public intelligence and morally aro such
as to secure a stable lecal government
therein, the people of such Territories
should be permitted, as a ri&ht inherent ir
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 citizen 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 indorse the action
of the Republican Senate in twice
passing bills for her admission. The
rofusal of the Democratic House of
Representatives, for partisan purposes, to
favorably considor these 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
enable the people of Washington, North
Dakota and Montana Territories to form
constitutions Bhould be passed without
unnecessary delay. The republican party
pledges itself to do all in its power to fa
cilitate the admission of the territories of
New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho and Ari
zona to the enjoyment of tclf government
as stateB, such of them as pre now quali
fied, as soon as possible, and the others as
soon as they may become so.
Tho political power of the Mormoo
church in the territories, as experienced in
the past, is a menace to free institutions
too dangerous to be long suffeted. There
fore wo pledge the republican party lo ap
propriate legislation asserting the m ver
eiguty of the nation in all u-rntones
where the same is questioned, ami in
lurtherauce of that end to plr.ee upon the
statute books legislation stiingsut enough
to divorce the political from the ecclesias
tical power, and thus stamp out the
attendant wickedness of polygamy.
The republican party is in favur of the
use of both gold and silver as money, and
condemns the policy of the democratic
administration in its t (Torts to demonetize
We demand the reduciion of letter
postage to I cent per ounce.
In a republic like outs, where the
citizen is the sovereign and the official the
seivaut, where no power is exercised
except by the will ol the people, it is
important thai the soveruTi the people
should p "-seas intelligence. The free
xchuol is the promoter of that intelligence
which is to preserve us a free nation;
theiuforu, the mate or nation, or both
combined, shou'd support tree institutions
ot learning, sufficient to afford to every
child growing up m the land the oppor
tunity of a good common school edu
cation. We earnestly recommend that prompt
action be taken by uougress m the en
actment of such legislation as will be.t
secure the rehabilitation of our American
merchant marine, and 'J protest agaiut
thu paaaage by Congress of a free ship

well as for the payment of the maturing
public debt. This policy will give em
nlovment to our labor, activity to onr va
rious industries, lucrease the security of
our country, promote trade, open new
and direct markets for our produce, and
cheapen the cost of transportation. We
affirm this to be far better for our country
than the democratic policy of loaning the
government money without interest to
The condust of foreign affairs by the
present administration has been distin
guished by its inefficiency and its coward
ice. Having withdrawn from the Senate
all peuding treaties effected by republican
administration for the removal of foreign
burdens and restrictions upon our com
merce and for its extension into better
markets, it has neither effected nor pro
posed any others in their stead. Profess
ing adherence lo the Monroe doctrine, it
has seen with id .complacency cne exten
sion of foreign influence in Central
America, aud of foreign trade everywhere
among our neighbors. It has refused lo
charier, sanction oreucourage any Amer
ican organization for constructing the
Nicaragua canal, a work ot vital import
ance to the maintenance of the Monroe
doctrine, and of our national influence in
Central and South America, and neces
sary for tho development ol trade 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 question, and
its pusillanimous surrender of the essen
tial privileges to which our fishing vessels
are entitled in Canadian ports under the
treaty of 1818, the reciprocal maritime
legislation of I830, and the comity of
nations, and which Canadian fishing ves
sels receive iu the ports of the United
States. We condemn the policy of the
piesent administration and the democratic
majority iu congress inwaru our nsnenes
as unlnendly and conspicuously unpatri
otic, and as lending to destroy a valuable
national industry, and an indispensable
resource ol defense, against a foreign
The name of America applies alike to
all citizens of the republic, and imposes
upon all alike the same obligations of
obedience to the laws. At the same time
that citizenship is and must be the pan
oply and safeguard of him who wears it,
and protect him, whether high or low,
rich or posr, in his civil rights. It should
ana must afford him protection at home,
and follow and protect him abroad in

l'he men who aK-vndoned the republican
party in 1884, and continue to adhere to
the democratic party, have deserted not
only ihe cause of honest government, of
sound finances, of fie-dom and purity of
the ballot, but e-ii-cially have deserted
the causu of ti-lonii in the civil service.
We will iin! fail to keep our pledges be
cause they have broken theirs', or because
their candidate has broken his. We,
thciefore, repeat our declaration of 1884,
to wit: "The roform of the civil service,
auspiciouslv begun undrir the republican
adrnnNtratlon' should be completed by
the further extension of the reform system
already established by law, to all the
grades of tho service to which it is applic
able. The spirit and purpose of the re
form should be observed in all executive
appointments, and all laws at variance
with the object of existing reform leeisla-
turn should be repealed, to the end that
the danger to free institutions which lurks
in the power of official patronage may be
wicly and effectively avoided."
The gratitude of the nation to the de
fenders of the union can not be measured
by laws. The legislation of Congress
should conform to the pledges made by a
loyal people, and be so enlarged and ex
tended as to piovide against the possibility
that any man who honorably wore tho
ftderal 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
8c1ud.1l to do less for those whose valor
ous service preserved the government.
We denounce the hostile spirit shown by
I'resident Cleveland iu his numerous
vetoes of measures for pension relief, and
the action of the democratic house of
reprisentatives iu refusing even a consid
eration ol general pension legislation.
In support of the principles herewith
enunciated we invite the co-operation of
patriotic men of all parties, and especially
ol all workingmen whose prosperity is
seriously threatened by the free trade
po.icy of the present administration.
