The committee on resolutions re
ported as follows:
The republicans of Lincoln county in
convention assembled reatlinn their
allegiance to the principles of the repub
lican party as set out in the national
n!atform of 18ft.'.
Wo 'denounce tho democratic party
for its incompetency n displayed in its
conduct of national affairs; for increas
ing the uational debt in times of peace;
for the euac-iment of the un-American
Wilson tarilf bill, with it vicious attacks
on tho American laborer and farmer:for
it repeal of 1I10 reciprocity act, thus
closing to the American farmer and
manufacturer the great markets of ths
world that had been opened by that act;
for its as-ault on tho old soldier by the
denial of his rigl'ts under the pension
laws of t'.o country.
We demand such legislation state and
national as will protect and build up the
irrigation interests of our state, and will
give free access to tho waters of our
state to all, upon psyraeut of just com
pensation to the owners of lands neces
sarily crossed, and we denounce the
doctrine that the ownership of the lands
bordering the streams necessary for irri
gation carry, therewith a monopoly of
the waters and the right to deny access
thereto, and we deuounce all legislation
tending to maintain a monopoly in this
bounty of naturo the running water;
and it" is the sense of this convention
that tho Lincoln county delegates to the
6tate convention make it their special
duty to see that this matter is placed
before the republicans of the state in its
We arraign the populist commissioners
of Lincoln county forieversingthetime
honered rule of letting all public con
tracts to tho lowest and best bidder, in
awarding tho contracts for county pub
lishing to tho highest bidder, through
pnrtizan, if not corrupt, motives thus
robbing the tax-payers out of thousands
We denounco the populist officials in
control of the affairs of Lincoln county
far their extravagant and partisan man
agement of the affairs of the county
whereby an enormous floating debt has
been created and our taxes increased.
Wo pledge the nominee of this con
vention to an economical and non-partisan
conduct of the affairs f the county
in the interest of all the tax-payere.
The following resolution was also
presented and unanimously adopted:
Whereas; Our fellow citizen the Hon.
