The delegation from my State was not

"It has always been loyal to the Re

sendeu took the stand and said:
"Two acts have already been performed

proval of every loyal Republican ot the

of the soldier, patriot and great states

adoption of a platform which in unequivocal
terms pledges the Republican party ot
this nation to maintain an honest currency

This would put a stop to all tariff legisla
