HAHWKM.. Jr. (lenFrt;' A r" I'ihm. At. Onwni loeloptnent Oi., :l Montuomery st.; Mini M-anelseo.CalJ 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 ished. . 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 States. Wo are uncompromisingly in favor ol the American system of protection. We protest against its destruction proposed by the president and his party. Ihey serve the interests of Euiopc; wo will si'pnort tho interests of America We ac 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 patriotic actions ol the Republican Rep resentatives in Congress in opposing ub passage. Wo condemn the proposition of the Democratic party to pluce wool on the free list, and we insist that the duties thereon shall bo adjusted and maintained so as to furnish full aud adequate protection to that industry. The Republican party would effect a'l needed roduction of the National revenue by repealing the taxos on tobacco, which nreanannoyancoand buidtn to agriculture, 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 our people, tho production of which gives employment to our labor, and release Irom import duties those articles of foreign pro iluotion (except luxuries) the like of which can not bo pioduccd at home. If (here shall still remain a largei revenue lhaMS requisite for the wants ot the guvernmeut 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 mend to Conuress and to thu State I-jju-attires, in their respective jurisdictions, null legislation as ill prevent the exi'Ui tlonof all schemes tnopprcs- the pe pi'i'j undue charges on their subiil-.e-, or - un just tatos for the transportation f th-ir products to market. Wo npt rove i. leg illation by Congress to prtvi.ni 4 tU tm just burdens and unfair iWriiii ai n twecu the States. 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 stiver. 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 bit', as calculated to work icjustioe to labor by lessening the waics of those engaged in preparing materials, ua well a-i thoso directly employed in our ship v arils. We demand appropriations for Hie early .ebuiidllig of au navy; for the c ii-oriiction of coast fortifications and in-iilTi) ordnance, und other approved modern moults of defense fur the piutco i n ( "ur ilifi-lit'ele'iii htrbors and uuc: lor thu pa) no ut of just ,eii4!uu to our soiiluis; I vr utonary work. of Niiiiui.il imsiri.iuct in the inipiuvumciic ul Inn bom .ii i Hie clunneis of internal i i-.vim , un t foiHUii LiMiinrree; fur the ii on' ran ii f the alii, ping liieie il le If "Snli i 1 , ,,, s 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 "pet banks." 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 enemy. 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 whatever land be may be on a lawful errand. 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.
