a precious trio of scamns. Doth tlx;
Fishers were kicked out of oflice through
the influent of Bristow and Picrrepont ;
but a few days since the President, always
true to his chums, nominated the elder
Fisher as United States attorney lor the

claims a residence. This appointment is
another illustration of Grant's devotion to
civil service reform."

T1IK RFPORT OF THE MA.IOI1ITV.
We, the delegate ot tho Democratic
party ot the United States, in nationd
convention assembled, do hereby declare
the administration ot tlie federal gov
ernment to be in great need of immediate
reform. Do hereby enjoin upon the nom
inees ot this convention, and of tbe ueai
ocratic party In each State, a zealous ef
fort and co-operation to this end, aud do
here appeal to our fellowltieiis of ev
ery form of political connection to undertake-
with in this tlrst nnd inoi-t press
ing patriotic duty for the democracy of
the whole country. We do here rcatlirin
our faith in the permanence of the fed
eral Union, our devotion to the constitu
tion of the United States uiih its amend
ments universidly accepted as a linal set
tlement of the controversy that enjeii
lercd the civil war : aud do here record
our stendt'ust confidence In the perpetuity
of Republican self-government ; in abso
lute acquiescence iu the will of the ma
jority, the vital principle of Republic ; in
the supremacy of the civil over the
militarv ; In the twofold separation of
church nud State; for the sake alike of
civil and religious freedom; iu the equal
ity of all e.iti.ens before just laws of their
own enactment; in the liberty of individ
ual conduct unvexed by sumptuary laws;
in the fiiithful education of the rising
generation, that they may preserve, en
joy nnd transmit these best conditions of
human happiness aud hope, we behold
the noblest products of a hundred years
ol ehangetui history. But while uphold
ing the bond of our Union nnd great
charter ol these our rights, it behooves a
free people to practice, also, that eter
nal vigilance which Is tho price ot liberty.
Reform Is necessary to rebuild and es
tablish iu the hearts ot the whole people ot
ihe Union eleven years ago ii ippily res

We deitouueo tlie improvidence which
in eleven years of peace has taurn jrom
the people, in Julcrtil iasm thirteen tuna
ihe whole amount of the legal tender wtet
and squandered fw.ir times their xitm in un
it ejrfitnM iriihont uecumulnting any re

the financial imbecility and Immorality
of that party which, during eleven year
of peace, has made no udvauco toward
resumption, no preparation toward re
sumption, but Instead has obstructed re
sumption by waiting our resources and
exhausting all our surplus income,
and while annually profes-iug to intend
a speedy return to specie, payment', has
annually enacted fresh Itindraii'-es there
to. As such hindrance we denounce
the resumption clause of the not of 173,
and we here demand its repeal. We de
mand a judicious system ot preparation.
We demand a judicious y.-u-iu of pre
paration by public economies, by olHcial
retrenchment, and by a wise finance
which shr.ll enable tli- nation soon to as
sure the whole world ot Its perfect readl-
to meet any ot its promises at tlie call of
a creditor entitled to payment.
We believe such a system well-advised,
and above all, entrusted to competent
hands tor execution, creating at no tinu
nn artillehil scarcity of currency, nnd at
no time alarming tlie public mind into
withdrawal of that vast machinery ol
credit by which 05 per cent, of our bu-i

adoption bring healing on its wings to

ment to labor and renew in all its sources
tlie prosperity ot the people.
Reform is necessary in ihe sum and
mould of federal taxation, to the end that
capital may be set tree from distress, and
labor lightly burdened.
We denounce the present tariff levied
upon ncany iour thousand articles u
a masterpiece ol injustice, inequality and
false pretense, which yields a dwiiilling
aud not a yearly rising revenue, lias im
poverished many industries to subsidize
a lew. It prohibits imports that might
purchase the products of American labor;
it has degraded American commerce
from the tirst to an interior rank upon
the high seas, ft has cut down the w alls
of American inanutuctures at .home and
abroad. It has depleted tlie returns of
iVmericau agriculture, au industry fol
lowed bv half Our people. cr.'.i the
people fire timet more than it produces ti
the treasure, obstructs the process ol pro
duction and wastes the fruits of labor. It
promotes fraud, fosters sinugs'ling, en
riches dishonest officials, and bankrupts
honest merchants. We demand that all
custom-house taxation shall be oi ly for
Reform is necessary in the scale of
public expense, federal, 5 tale nnd mu
nicipal. Our federal taxation has swollen
from sixty millions gold in 100 to four
hundred aud luty millions currency in
170. Our aggregate taxation from one
hundred and lilty-foiir millions gold iu
1800 to seven hundred and thirty mil
lions cunency in 170 ; all iu one decade,
from less than live dollars per head to
more than cighteer. dollars per head.
Since the peace the people have paid to
their tax-gatherers more than thrice the
sum ot the national debt, nnd more than
twice that sum for tho, federal govern
ment alone. Wo demand a rigorous
frugality in every department and from
every otlicer of the government.
Reform is neeessay to put a stop to the
prolligate waste of public lauds and their
diversion from actual ncttler i "-v
party iu power, vhicu lias squandered
two hundred millions of acres upon rail
roads alone; and out of more than thrice
that agregate has disposed of less than a
sixth directly to the tillers of the soil.
Reform is necessary to correct the
omissions of a Republican congress and
the errors of our treaties, und our diplo-itiu-y,
-which has stripped our lellow-cit-i.ens
ot foreign birth und kindred race,
re-erasingthe Atlantic from the shield of
A'jierican citizenship, and lias t-x posed
our brethren of the Pacific coast to the
Incursions of a race not fTiing
from the same great parent stock,
and in fact now by law denied
citizenship through naturalization as
being unaccustomed to the traditions of
a progressive civilization, ouu exercised
iu liberty under equal laws; aud we de
nounce the policy which thus discards tbe
liberty-loving German and tolerates me
revival of tho Coolie trade, in Mongolian
women imported for immoral purposes,
and Mongolian men held to perform ser
Uo labor contracts, an demand such
modification of the rcaty with tho Chi
nese empire or uch legislation withjn
constitutional limitations as shall prevent
further importation or immigration of
the Mongolian race.
