Washington, D. C, July 19, '84.
Deak Sut Having received from
you on the 24th of June, the official
notification of my nomination by the
national Republican convention as the
Republican candidate for vice-president
of the United States, aud consid
ering it to be the duty of every man
devoting himself to the pnblic service
to assumo any position to which he
may be called by the voice of his coun
trymen, I accept the nomination with
a grateful heart and a deep sense of
its responsibilities, and, if elected,
plin.ll endeavor to discharge the duties
of the office to the best ot my ability.
The honor, as is well understood, was
wholly unsought by me. That
it vvas tendered by the rep
reeeutativeH of the" party in
a manner to llatlering will tew to
lighten whatever labors I may be call
ed upon to perform. Although the
variety of subjects covered iu the very
excellent and vigorou- declaration of
principles adopted by the late conven
tion, prohibits upon an occasion call
ing for brevity of expression that full
elaboration of which they arc
Husccptible, I avail myself of party
usage to signify my approval of the
various resolutions of the platform
aud to discuss them briclly.
PROTECTION OK AMERICAN LAUOIt.
The resolutions of the platform de
claring for a levy of such duties 'as to
aflord security to our divcisiticd in
dustries and protection to the rights
of labor, to the end that
active and intcllegent labor as well as
capital may have its just award,
aud the laboring man his full share
iu the national prosperity," meet my
heart v approval. If there bo a nation

nolnmuIIicai!on to all the world, and
proceed to live upon its own resources
aud productions, that nation is tlie
United States. There is hardly a
legitimate necessity of civilized com
munities which cannot be produced
from the extraordinary resources of
our several states and territories, with
their manufactories, mines, f.inns,
timber land and water wajs. This
circumstance, taken in connection with
the fact that our form of government
is entirely unique among the nations
of the world, makea it utterly absurd
to institute comparisons between our
governments, and especially to at
ecouomic systems and those of other
tempt to borrow systems from them.
We stand alone in our circumstances,
our forces, our possibilities and our
aspirations. In all successful govern
ment it is a prime icqnisite that capi
tal aud labor should be upon the best
terms, and that both Miould enjoy the
highest attainable prosperity." If
there be a disturbance of tbe just bal
ance between them, one or the other
suffer, and dissatisfaction follows,
which is harmful to both. The les
sons furnished by the comparatively
short history of our own national Hie
have been too much overlooked by our
people. The fundamental article in the
old Democratic creed proclaimed al
most absolute free trado and thi,too,no

The low condition of our national

publican party sufficient credit has not
been awarded to that ot protection,
its benefits have nevertheless been felt
throughout the land. The principle
underlj ing this measure lias been in
process ol gradual development by the
Republican party during the compara
tively brief period of its power, and

This industry is a very large and

No one realizes more fully than my
self the great delicacy and difficulty of
adjusting a tariff so nicely and equita

great agricultural interests, and at the

establishment of an international f

fixing the relative values of gold and

peculiar advantage. ;
Speaking upon inter-state com
merce, foreign commerce and foreign
relations, he says : There is iu the '
matter of inter-state commerce much
to be desired iu the way of equitable
rates and facilities of "transpoatation,
that commerce may be free from vexa
tious restrictions aud unjust charges.
As to our foreign commerce
the enorniot-i growth of our
industries aud our surprising produc
tion of cereals and other necessities of
life imperatively require that imme
diate and effective means be taken,
through peaceful, orderly and conser
vative methods, to open markets
which have been aud are now monop
olized largely by other nations. This
more particularly relates to our sister
republics of Spanish America, as aNo
to our frlend, the people of the IJra
7ilian empire. The republics of Span
ish America arc allied to us by the
very closest aud warmest feelings,
based upon similarity of institutions
and government, common aspirations, '
and mutual hope. The "great repub-1
lie" as they proudly term the United
State-, is looked upon by their people
with aflectionate admiration and as
the model for them to build upon:
and we should cultivate between them
ami ourselves closer commercial rela-,
tion, which will bind us together by
the tics of friendly and mutual advan
tages. Politically", we should bo bound
to the republics "of our continent by
the closest tics, and communication by
ships and railroads should be encour
aged to the fullest possible evtent con
sistent with wise and conservative
public policy. Above all wc shou'd '
be upon such terms of friendship as to
preclude the possibility of national
misunderstandings between ourselves
aud auy of the members of the Ameri
can republican family. The best
method to promote "uninterrupted I
peace between one and all would he in
the meeting of a general conference or
congress, whereby an agreement to ,
submit all inter-national diflercnces to
the peaceful decision of friendly arbi
tration might be reached. The full
advantages of a policy of this nature
could not be stated in" a brief discus

The United States iu every sense,
excepting that of mere naval power, is
one of the first nations of the world.
As such its citizenship should be val
uable, entitling its possessor to pro
tection in every quarter of the globe.
I do not consider it necescaiy that our
government shall construct enormous
lleets of approved iron dads, and
maintain a commensurate body of'
seamen, in order to place ourselves on
a war fooling with the military and
naval powers of Europe, though it
seems absurd that we have not the
effective means to repel a wanton in
vasion of our coast and give protec
tion to our coast towns and cities
against any power. The great
moral force of our country is so uni- (
versally recognized as to render an
appeal' to arms bv us quite improba

The central idea of a republican
form of government is the rule of the
whole people, as opposed to the other
form, which rest upon a privileged
class. In many of the southern states i
the colored population is iu large ex
cess of the white. Tho colored peo
ple aie Republicans, as are also a con
siderable portion of tho white
people. The remaining portion of the
latter are Democrats, lu face of this '
iiicontcstrble truth these states invari
ably return Democratic minorities. In
other states of the south the colored
people, although not a majority, form
a very considerable bodv of the popu
lation, and with the white Republicans
are numerically in excess of the Dem
ocrats; yet prectselv the same political
result obtains the' Democratic party,
invariably carry ing the election. It is
not even 'thought advisable to allow
an occasional or unimportant election
to bo carried by the Republicans aa a
''bliud" or a" a stroke of tines-e.
Careful and impartial investigations
have shown these results to follow the
Bystemmaticcxercitc of physical intimi
dation and violence, conjoined with
the most shameful devices ever prac
ticed in the name of free elections. So
confirmed lin the result become that
wc are brought face to face with the
extraordinary political fact that the
Democratic party of the south relies
almost entirely upon the methods stat
ed for its success iu national elections.
This unlawful perversion of the popu
lar franchise, which 1 desire to state
dispassionately and in a manner com
portiug with" the proper dignity of
the occasion, is one of sleep gravity to
the American people in a slouhle sene.
First, it is in violation open, direct
and flagrant, of the primary principle
upon which our government is sup
posed to rest. Second, it is
iu tlircct violation of the rights
and iutcrests of all states wherein
arc particularly centered the wealth
and industries of the naiion,atid which
pay an overwhelming portion of the
national taes. The immense aggre
gation of interests embraced within,
aud the enormously greater popula
tion of thoe other states of the Union,
are subjected every four years to the
danger of a wholly fraudulent numeri
cal strength. Under this system mi
norities actually attempt to direct the
course of national attairs, and, though
up to this time success has nouaticud
cd their effort to elect the president,
yet success has been s perilously im
minent a to encourage a repetition of
the cflort at each quadrennial elec
tion, aud to subject the
interests of an overwhelming
majority ot our people north ami
south to the hazarsi of illegal subver
sion. The coloresl people of the south
have recently emerged from the bond
age f their "present political oppress
ors. Tliev have had but few of the
advantages of education whidi might
enable them to compete with the
white. A liberal school system
should be provided for the rising gen
eration of the south, and the colored
people be made as capable of exercis
ing the duties of electors as the white
people. In themeautimeitis the duty

the absolute freedom of national
elections everywhere, to the cud that
.our congress may cease to contain
members representing -fictitious ma
jorities of their people, thus misdi
recting the papular will concerning
national legislation, and especially to
the end that in presidential contests
the great business and other interests
of the country may not be placed in
fear and trembling, lest au unscrupu
lous minority should succeed in stifl
ing the wishes of the majority.
THE CIVIL SERVICE.
The subject of civil service adminis
tration is a problem that has occupied
the earnest thought of statesmen for a
number of years past, and the record
will show that toward its solution
many results of a valuable and compre
hensive character have been attained
by the Republican party siuce its ac
cession to power. In the partizan
warfare made upon the latter with the
view of weakening it in the public
confidence great deal lias been alleg
ed iu connection with the abuse
of the civil service, the party making
the indiscriminate charges seeming to
have entirely forgotten that it was un
der the full "sway of the Democratic
organization that the motto, "To the
victors belong the spoils" became a
cardinal article in the Democratic
creed. "With the determination to
elevate our governmental administra
tion to a standard of justice, excel
lence aud morality, the Republican
party has sedulously endeavored to
lay the foundation of a system which
Bh'all reach the highest perfection un
der the plastic hand of time and. accu
mulating experieuee. The problem i
sine of far greater intricacy than ap
pears upon its superficial considera
tion. 'I he thinking earnest men of
the Republican party have made no
mere wordy demonstration upon this
subject, but they have endeavored to
quietly perform that which their op
ponents are constantly promising
without performing. Uuder Republi
can rule the result has been that, with
out engrafting auy of the objection
able features of the European system
upon our own, there has been
a steady and even rapid eleva
tion of" the civil service in all
of its departments.
There are other subjects of impor
tance which I would gladly touch
upon did space permit. 1 limit myscif
to saying that while there should be
the most rigid ecouumy of govern
mental administration, there should
be no self-defeating parsimony, either
iu our domestic or foreign service.
Oilicial dishonesty should be promptly
and releutlessly punished. Our obli
gations to the dcteuilcrs of our coun
try should never be forgotten, and the
liberal system of pensions provided by
the Republican partv should not be
imperiled by adverse legislation. The
law establishing a labor bureau
through which tho interest of labor
cau he placed in au organized condition
I regard as salutary measure. The
eight hour law should be enforced as
rigidly as any other. We should in
crease" our navy to a ilcgree enabling
us to amply protect our coast lines, our
commerce" and to give us a force in for
eign waters which shall be a respecta
ble and proper representative of a
country like our own. The public
lands belong to the people aud should
not be alienated fiom them, but re
served for free homes for all desiring
to possess them, and, finally, our pres
ent Indian policy should be continued
and iniproved'upoti, as our experience
in its aduiitiistrattiou may from lime
to time suggest.

STRIKE FOR NINE HOURS.
New Yokk, July 21. About two
thousand bricklayers, three thousand
laborers and two hundred hod hoist
ing engineers and trainers struck work
this morning because their employers
refused to grant their demands that
nine hours shall constitute a day's la
bor instead or ten. The employers
whft denied the request say that they
can get other men to take the places
of the strikers aud whether they cau
or not it will be but a few days when
the men w ill be willing to return un
der the old terms. The bosses who
granted nine hours think the others
loolish, as they will have to yield in
the end. As fast as the men
struck they reported to the
headquarters' ot their re
spective unions. About thirl -livo
employers allowed the men to go to
work on their own term'. Hugh Ma
hone, w ho has charge of the erection
of the new exchange, says the building
trade is very lively. '' do not think
the boss builders can afford to have
their men go on a strike
for auy length of time without
suffering great loss. Nearly all the
large buildings w ill grant thedeniand.
The strikers claim they can stand
out longer than the employers and
will hold out six. mouths. It i re
ported that on many of the jobs the
men were not out ten minutes before
they were told to go to work again.
A large number of bosses held out un
til noon and thcti yielded, thus leaving
not ov er 2,000 men on the strike.

Editor Kagle, Dkak Sir:
I see In your Sunday's issue a proclams
mation from our President in regard to
cholera. Would it not be well for you a
the leading dltpenser of public sentiment,
to call tbe attention of our honorable may
or and city council to the condition of
our rtrcets and alleys and gutter
and back yards, hog pens, etc., and have
them put In a good and clean condition and
kept fo to prevent the Introduction of thai
dreadful scourge, cholera, into our uildit.
It will certainly come, for the'iontlitiuiia
are inviting, and I can assure you. Mr.
Editor, that we are getting the germ here
ready; lor I have seen snch before "d
have lor years watched Its progress In
larger cities. As a san itarian you have no
doubt notUcd recently the climatic
changes and the sudden introduction
of fruits and vegetables, and tho watte from
these are cast into our streets and alleys
and the green scum which yon will notice
upon cesspools in and around our beauti
ful tity are due to tungi or vegetable de
cay, which produces malaria in its worst
form, such as cholera, flux, diarrhea, bu
llous and typhoid fevers; and even now
look and you will 11 nd a good many adults
and children suffering with flux and diar
rhea which is simply the forerunner of
cholera. Xow Mr. Editor, have we a
preventationy I say, yes, viz.: Let the
proper authorities take hold at
once and let all good people
look to their bark yards, and
gutters and cellars and vaults and alleys,
and remove all vesti ge of decayed animal
and vegetable matter, and dry your cellars,
and use plenty of lime or copperas water
iu all damp places where there has been
decayed matter, and I can assure you that
in case of au epidemic we can be able to
con tine it to our locality as an sepldemlc.
N'ow, my dear sir, if I in these few lines
of warning shall be tbe means of saving
suffering in this community, I shall eon
sitler mjsclf well paid for my time and
labor, t am most respectfully,
W. i. JIcHurm. 31. I.

Tliu Hess opera company occupied the
opera house last night. The company was
not led by I'atti Itoza, but so far as tbe
rendition of pure Knglixh opera Is con-
ccrned, wc couldn't see that the company
suflVrrd much from her absence. It Is not
often that Wichita people are treated to
such music as was rendered last night or as
will be given in the Chimes ol Normandy
to-night The latter opera is only equalled
by Martha and the llobemlan Girl, and tbe
house ought to be crowded to-night.
