and State platforms; I v- M os l,, in fs..niH.
Resolved, That we are in favor of,
and demand, as a fundamental right of
American citizens, a free and untram
meled ballot, and a fair and honest
count of the same. We denounce the
"Louisiana plan"as corrupting in its in
fluence upon the body politic and sub
version of free government;
Resolved, That we realize how
weak and leeble are any words we can
utter, and how utterly inadequate are
any resolutions we can write to express
in suitable and proper terras, the debt
of gratitude the nation oyes to the de
fenders of the country. And we note
with gratification and pride the dispo
sition of the Republicans in the Con

anfl liberally in the matter of pensions
with the men to whom we owe so
Resolved, That we are in favor of
such Legislation as will control and le
straiu the great corporations of the
day, protect home manufactures, home
labor, foster and encourage free
schools and popular education;
Resolved, That in Hon. John A.
Anderson, member of Congress of the
Fifth Congressional District of Kansas,
we recognize an honest public servant,
a statesman of broad and comprehen
sive views, a man fully alive to the in
terests of the masses of the people,
bold and aggressive, fearless in the
discharge of every duty. He has made
a record during his service in the
House ot Representativs that his con
stituents constantly point to with pride
and it sends greeting to the other
counties ot this congressional district,
and hails with supreme satisfaction the
assured prospect that Mr. Anderson
will bo renominated at Junction City
on May 1st, 188S, by acclamation, and
we hereby instruct the delegates
elected here t lis day to said conven
tion, to support Kon. John A. Ander
son for renomination;
Resolved, That we earnestly en
dorse the proposition that the saloon
as a factor in politics must be relegated
to the rear, and this idea should be
embodied in the National Republican
Resolved, That the delegates we
have just elected to the State Conven
tion to be held at Wichita May 9, 1888,
are hereby instructed to support Hon.
J. R. Burton, of Abilene, as their first
choice as delegate from the State-at-large
to the National Convention at
Chicago. And, having in view his
special fitness for the position,
his labors as "Chairman Anti-Saloon
Republican National Committee," we
hereby instruct said delegates to sup
port Hon. Albert Griffin, of Manhat
tan, as second choice for the position
of delegate from the State-at-large to
the National Convention.
Resolved, That we do not deem it
wise or expedient to instruct the dele
gates to the National convention as to
any particular candidate but leave
them free, untrammelled by instruc
tions, so that they may, after earnest
consultation with delegates from other
and especially close or doubtful States,
determine which one of our many able
statesmen shall be the standard bear
er to lead us to a glorious victory in
W. E. A. Meek, Chairman.
The report was unanimously adopted.

ford county system of nominating coun
ty officers, be repealed was then dis
cussed. Messrs. Geo. W. King, I. L.
Hart, J. S. Hollinger, W. E. A. Meek.
B. W. Peck and others gave their views
on the subject. Mr. Brunson advised
that some action be taken by the Cen
tral Committee. W. P. Robinson
urged that it be declared the sense of
the convention, that the resolutions of
last fall should be rescinded by the Cen
tral Committee. T. E. Dewey moved,
that the question be left until the con
vention for selectiong delegates to the
Topeka convention be held, in June or
July, and the Central Gommittee be in
structed to state in their call for that
convention that the question will there
be discussed. J". S. Hollinger, -1 E.
Brunson and J. !M. Hodge further dis
cussed the question. Mr. Lewis ac

drew bis own. The' motion by Mr.
