The Republicans ol the United States,
ajsembled by their delegates in National
convention, pause 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 to cover also
with wreaths of imperishable remembrance
and gratitude tho heroic names of later
leaders, who have moie recent been
called away from our councils (..rant,
GarHeld, Arthur, LogaD and Conkliug.
May thqir memories be faithfully cher
ished. ,. ,
Wo also recall with our greetings and
wilh prayer for his recovery the- name ol
one of our living heroes whoso 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 H Sheridan.
In tho spirit of those great leaders, and
of our own devotion to human liberty, and
with that hostility to all forms of despot
ism and oppression which is the f unda
menial idea of the Republican party, we
send fraternal congratulations to our fel
low Americana of Brazil upon their great
act ol emancipation, which compleled the
abolition of slavery throughout the two
American continents. Vo earnestly hope
that we may soon congratulate our fellow
citliens of Irish birth upon the peaceful
recovery of homo rule for Ireland.
We nfliiui our unswerving devotion to
the Nitioual Constitution and to the in
dissoluble Union of the slates : to the au
tonomy reserved the states under the Con
stitution : to the personal rights and liber
ties of citizens in all the Slates and Terri
tories in the Union, and especially to
tho supreme and sovereign right of
every lawlul citizen, rich or poor,
nativo or foreign born, white or black, to
cast one free ballot u. public elections,
and to have that ballot duly counted. We
hold tho free and honest popular ballot,
and the ju 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 ate Ihe
fountains of all public authority. We
charge that the present administration
and tho Democratic majority in Congress
owe their existence to the suppression ol
the ballot by a criminal nullification ofthe
Constitution and laws of tho United

We reaffirm the policy of appropriating
the public lands ofthe United Utates to be
homesteads for American citizens and set
tlers out aliens, which Ihe Rspublican
party established in 1862, against the
persistent opposition of the Democrats in
Congress, and which has brought our great
Western domain into such magnificent
development. The restoration of unearn
ed land 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 party has ever restored one
acre to the people, but declare that by the
joint action of republicans and democrats,
about fifty millions ol acres of unearned
larius origmany kwuicu ivi mc tuuraui
tion of railroada have been restored to the
nublic domain, in pursuance ofthe conch
lions 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
riations made for that purpose to harass
innocent settlers with spies and prosecu
tions under false prettnee of cxposinq
frauds aud vindicating the law.
The government by Coucress of the
Territories is based upon necessity only,
to Ihe end that they may become States
in the Union; therefore .whenever Hie con
ditions of population, material resources,
nublic intelligence aud morally are such
as to secure a stable lecal government
therein, the people of such Territories
should be permitted, as a rif,nt inherent ir
them, to form for themselves a constitution
and State government, and be admitted
into the Union. Pendinu the prepara
tion for Statehood, all officers .hereof
should be selected from the bona tide
residents and citizens ot the Territory
wherein they are to serve. South Dakota
should of right be immediately admitted
as a State in tho Union, under the con
stitution framed and adopted by the
people, and we heartily indoise the action
of the Republican Senate in twice
nassinz bills for her admission. The
relusal of the Democratic House of
Representatives, for partisan purposes, to
favorably consider 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 should be passed without
unnecessary delay. The republican part)
pledges itself to do all in its power to fa
cilitate the admission of the territories uf

In a republic like our, where the
citizen is the sovereign nod the dlicial the
servant, where no power is exercised
except by the will ol Ihe people, it is
important thai the soser.ign the people
should possess iuielhsnce. The free
school is the promoter of that intelligence
which is to preserve us a fiee nation;
therefore, the state or nation, or both
combined, should support free institutions
of hartiing, sufficient to afford to ever)
child growing up in the laud ihe oppor

action be tukeu by Congress in the en

The conduct of foreign affairs by the
present administration has been distin

ice. Hating withdrawn from the Senate
all pending treaties effected by republican
administration for the removal of foieign
burdens and restrictions upon our com-
ineico and for its extension into better
markets, it has neither effected nor pro
posed auy others in their stead. Profess
ing adherence to the Monroe doctrine, it
has seen with idle complacency the exten

We Arraign the present democratic ad

are entitled in Canadian ports under the

We will 11. ii Ian to keep our pledges be
r.insc they have hiokeu iheir3 or because
their candidate ha broken his. We,
tl.t-icfore, rtpeat our declaration of 1884,
:n -ah; '-The tef urn of the civil service,
au-piciouslv beuuii under the republican
aiiriini-traiion' should lie completed by
the funher extension of the reform system
already established by law, to all the
grades of ihe servicu to which it is applic
able. The souit and purpose of the re
lorm shou.d be oh-irvid in all executive
appointments, and all laws at variance
wiili the object of existing reform leatsla
tion should be repealed, to the end that
the danger to Iree institutions which lurks
in the power of official patronage may be
wiely 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 pmvide against the possibility
that any man who honorably wore the
lederal uniform shall become the inmate
f an almshouse, or dependent upon
private charity. In ihe presence of an
oteilliitvmg treasury it would be a public
scandal to do less for those whose valor
ous service preserved the government.
Wc denounce the hostile spirit shown by
I'lisldtsnt Cleveland in his numerous
vetoes of measures for pension relief, and
the action of the democratic house of
r. urt.enfativ.-s in refusing even a consid
ers' u ol general pension legislation.
lu support of the principles herewith
enunciated we invite the co-operation of
painoiiu men of all parties, and especially
