THIRD DAY'S PROCEEDINGS!
CHICAGO, Jane 5.—The convention was called
to order at 10:45 and was opened with prayer
by Bishop Fallows, of the Reformed Episcopal
church. He prayed that those who might be
selected by the convention for the loftiest polit
ical positions to which mortal man can aspire
shall possess every qualification of body, mind
and heart for their bright and h')ly trusts that
personal preferences and interests 'should yield
to the just demands of a true and broad patriot

choice should be made by the people in an un
Henry Ballard, Vermont, chairman of the
committee on credentials, reported that the
sessions of the committee had been almost con
tinuous, leaving the members no time for rest.
He took pleasure in saying that the proceedings
had been entirely harmonious, and without
reference to personal prefeiences, the result was
a unanimous report, which announcement was
received with applause. The report of the com
mittee on credentials was then read by Mr. Fort,
of New York. It was to the effect that the sit
ting members in all the centested cases are en
titled to their seats except in the case of the
Nineteenth district of New York and the Fifth
district of Kentucky, where both delegates and
contestants are admitted to cast half a vote
each In Ae Virginia case the committee found
unanimously that the delegation headed by
Senator Mahone was entitled to the seats The
report was adopted without discussion.
Parks of California, from the committee on
rules, reported that the committee had adopted
substantially the rules of the last convention ex
cept that it recommended the adoption ofCush
ing's manu 1 as the parliamentary law of the
body, in-tead of the rules of the house of rep
resentatives, except that the previous question
is to be in force as,in the house. Grow of Penn
sylvania, from the minority of the committee,
offered a substitute for the 10th rub which pre
9a the mode of electing delegates to the
national republican convention. It proposes
that delegates shall be elected in the same man
ner as members of congress. Parks accepted
the proposed amendment, Grow having explain
ed that the delegates at large are to be elected
by state conventions and that the manner of
electing delegates from the District of Colom
bia should be presented by the national repub
lican committee. The rules were then adopted.
Parks offered an additional rule as to the order
of business. Gayne, of Pennsylvania, moved
an amendment to make the order of business as
follows: First, report of the committee on
platform and resolutions Second, the
cal of the roll of states. Third,
presentation of candidates for President
Fourth, ballotting Fifth, presentation of can
didates vice president. Bix.h, ballotting.
The amendment was agreed to, and the addi
tional rule adopted. Boosevelt, of New York,
inquired what bad become of the proposition in
regard to representation in future national con
ventions. He knew that there was a strong
feeling that there should be some change by
which the number of delegates should be more
nearly proportioned to the republican votes
cast in their respective states. Parks, of Cali
fornia, chairman of the committee on rules,
said that subject had been withheld until a mi
nority report could be prepared. Thurston, of
Nebraska, moved to amend the seventh rule,
which provides for nominations by a majority
of the votes cast, by requiring a majority of all
the delegates. He said that the rule should be
enforced, by which a majority of duly elected
delegates should attempt to enforce a candidate
upon the party, such ac ion would be repudiated
by the freemen of America. (Applause.) San
ders, of Montana, offered an amendment, that
no person shall be elected as a member of the
national committee who is not eligible as a
member of the electoral college. Hoar, of Mas
sachusetts, made an explanation as to the effect
of the civil service law passed by congress a
year ago, and said it was not the purpose of that
law to prohibit any federal officer from exercis
ing all the right of an American citizen. The
amendment offered by Sandera was adopted,
and the amendment offered by Thurston, of
Nebraska, was adopted after some verbal modi
fications. This disposed of, the question
of the rules except as to the
representation in future conventions, that sub.
ject being withheld. Parks, of California, then
made a report as to the appointment of dele-,
gates for future conventions. It directed that
each state shall be entitled to four delegates at
large with two additional delegates for each
member of congress at large, if any: that each
teriitory and the District of Columbia shall be
entitled to two delegates and that each congres
sional district shall be entitled to two delegates.
Bishops, of Massachusetts, on behalf of the
minority of the committee, reported a rule that
each state shall be entitled to four delegates at
large and one additional delegate each
representative at large, if any that eac'i terri
tory and the District of Columbia shall be
entitled to two delegates, that each congressional
district shall be entitled to one delegate for
every ten thousand majority votes or fraction
thereof cast for the republican president elect
oral ticket at the preceding presidential election
and that the republican national committee
shall, within a year after each presidential elec
tion, certify the representation to which each
state is entitled. Carver, of Indiana, supported
the minority report as entirely in keeping with
the nius of American institutions. Bradley,
of Kentucky ^opposed theminority report as
something that might come from the demo
cratic party but not for the republican party.
There had been times when the south had saved
the republican party it was Florida that
gave them the president in 1876. He
warned the republican party that the tariff
quest ion was coming up before the country and
the time might come when the northern
states might want the aid of the south. The
southern delegates came here as free men, not as
slaves they did not ssk to dictate nominationp,
but they declined to surrender their manhood
the gallows which was now proposed might
hang some of those who proposed it. West
Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, and the old
Dominion, in spite of democratic shot guns,
and in tpite of legalized murder, which cried to
God for vengeance, would give the republican
party their electoral votes at the coming elec
Lynch, of Mississippi, Townsend, of New
York, West, of Ohio, and Filley, of Missouri, all
strongly denounced the minority report. Long,
of Massachusetts, said it was perfectly evident
that the convention was not prepared to adopt
the views of the minority report, but they were
going to elect the next president, and that fact
would go far toward settling equal rights at the
south. At the end of the next presidential term
the matter might be taken up and decided. Ha
therefore hoped the matter would be referied
to the next exenutiv. committee. By the shout
of dissent it then became evident that the nti
ment of the convention was against the minority
report and the majority repoit was adopted.
McKinley, of Ohio, from le tommittee cn resc
lutions, then presented the report. The plat
form as read is as follows:
The republicans of the United States in Na
tional convention assembled renew their alle
giance to the principles upon which they have
triumphed in six successive presidential elec
tions,|and congratulate the American people on
the attainment of so many reanltB in legislation
and administration by which the republican
party has, after saving the Uui n, done so much
to render its inststutions just, eqnal and bene
ficient the safeguard of liberty and the estab
lishment of the best thought and highest
purpose of our citizens. The republican party
has gained its strength by quick and faithful
response to the,demands of tne people for the
freedom and the equality of all men for a
united nation, assuring the rights of all citi
zens for tte elevation of labor for an honest
currency fir purity in legalation and for in
tegrit and acc untability in all departments of
the government and it accepts anew the duty
of leading in the work of progress and refoim
We lament the death of President Garfield,
whose sound statesmanship, long conspicuous in
congress, gave promise of a strong and success
ful administration, a promise fully realized
during the short period of bis office as president
of the United States, and his distinguished suc
cess in war and peace, which have endeared him
to the hearte of the American people. In the ad
ministration of President A thur we recogaiza
a wise, conservative and patriotic policy, under
which the country has Be blessed with re
markable prosperity, and we believe his emi
nent services are entitled to and will receive the
hearty approval of every citizen.
It is the first duty of a good government to
protect the rights and promote the interests of
its own people the largest diversity of industry
most productive of general prosperity, and of
the comfort and independence of the people.
We, therefore, demand that the imposition of
duties on foreign imports shall be made not for
revenue only, but that in raising the requisite
revenues for the government, such duties shall
be so levied as to afford security t-j our diversi
fied industries and protection to the rights,
the wages of the laborer, to the end
that active and intelligent labor as well as capi
tal, may have its best reward and the laboring
min his fnll share in the national prosperity.
Against the so called economic system of the
democratic party, which would relegate oar la
bor to the foreign standard, we enter oar earnest
protest. The democratic party has failed com
pletely to relieve the people of the burden of
unnecessary taxation by a wise reduction of the
surplus the republican party pledges itself to
correct the inequalities of the tariff and to re
duce the|*urplus, not by the vicarious and indis
criminate process of horizontal reduction, but
by such methods as will relieve the tax payer
without injuring the laborer and the great pro
ductive interests of the country. We recognize
the import anoeiof sheep husbandry in the United
States, the serious depression which it i* now
experiencing and the danger threatening its fu
ture prosperity, and we therefore respect the
demands of the representatives of the important
agricultural interest for a readjmtmeat of duty
upon foreign wool in order that snch industry
-hall have full and adequate protection.
We have always recommended the best money
known to the civilized world and we urge that
efforts should be made to unite all_ commercial
rations in the establishment of an international
standard, which shall fix for all the relative
value of gold and silver coinage.
The reputation of commerce with foreign na
tions and between the states is one of the moBt
important prerogatives of the general govern
ment and the republican party distinctly
announces its purpose to support snch legisla
tion as will fully and efficiently carry ont the
constitutional power of congrcss over interstate
The principle of the public regulation of
railway corporations is a wise and salutary one
for the protection of a'l classes of the people,
and we favor legislation that shall prevent un«
just discrimination and excessive charges for
transportation, and that shall secure to the peo
ple and the ilways alike the fair and equal
protection of the laws.
We favor the establishment of a national bu
reau of labor, the enforcement of the eight
hour law, a wis» and judicious system of general
education by adequate appropriation from the
national revenues, wherever the same is needed.
We belieye that everywhere the proteotion to

The republican party having its birth in a
hatred of slave labir and a desire that all men
may be truly free and eqnal is opposed to plac
ing our working men in competition with any
form of servile labor, .whether at home or
abroad in this spirit we denounce the importa
tion of contract labor, whether from Europe or
Asia, as an offense against the spirit of Ameri
can institutions, and we pledge ourse'.ves to sus
tain the present law rjestrictipgChine*!
vgratioih, and to provide such further legislation
as is necessary to carry out its purpose.
Reform of the civil service, auspiciously be
gan under republican administration, should be
observed in all the executive appointments and
all laws at variance with the objects of ii&t.ng
reformed legislation should be repealed, to the
end that the dangers to free institutions which
lurk in the power of official patronage may be
wisely and effectually avoided.
The public lands are the heritage of the
people of the United States, and should be
reserved as far as possible for small holdings by
actual settlers We are opposed to the acquisi
tion of large tracts of these lands by corporations
or ind'viduals, especially where such holdings
are in the bands of non resident al:ens, and we
will endeavor to obtain snch legislation as will
tend to correct this evil. We demand of
congress the speedy forfeiture of all land grants
lapsed by reason of non compli nee wi'h the
acts of incorporation in all cases where there has
been no attempt in good faith to perform the
conditions of such grants.
The grateful thanks of the American people
are due to the Union soldiers and sailors of the
late war, and the republican party stands
pledged to suitable pensions for all who were
disabled and for the widows and orphans of
those who died in the war. The republican
party al pledges itself to the_ repeal
of the limitation contained in the
arrears act of 1879 so that all
invalid soldiers share alike and their pensions
begin with the date of disability or discharge
not with the date of the application.
The republican party favors a policy which
shall keep us from entangling alliances with
foreign nations and which givfs us the right to
expect that foreign nations shall refrain from
meddling in America's affairs. The policy
which seeks peace can trade with all powers but
especially with those of the western hemisphere.

Chairman Henderson called the convention to
