assembled, believing tluit the princi
ples of equal civil and political rights
' arc vital to the interests of good
government, and that they can only
, be enforced by the party which has
engrailed them upon tho state and
; national constitutions, hereby reaf
firms its confidence in the national
republican party by pledging firm
adherence to the platform adopted by
the Cincinnati convention in this the
one hundredth year of American in
2. Wc hereby jdedgc our undivi
ded support to the standard bearers
of that parly,.Rutherford 15. Hayes
and William A. Wheeler, whose un
blemished and statesmanlike record
in the past is sufficient assurance that
all reform lying within 'the province
of their respective offices will be
earnestly prosecuted and the nation
al government wisely and cconomi
cally adminislsrcd, with due regard
to the rights and interests of the
whole American people.
Wc heartil) endorse the adminis
I tration of President Grant, so honest
ly and economically conducted as to
exalt the nation in the estimation of
tho world and advance its faith and
credit. Wc recognize in the soldier
states man and president a linn, devo
ted lover of American liberty, a stern
unflinching champion and protector
of the rights of American citizens at

repudiation of nil forms of violence,
intimidation or fraud in tho conduct
of elections, or for political purposes,
and denounce the same as a crime
against the lihcity of American citi
/ ms as well as the common rights of
humanity; ami, while we insist upon
and will jealously guard the right of
every citizen freely to choose his
political party, and deny the unfoun
ded charge that the republican party
countenances any intcrfcreacc with
colored voters who may choose to vote
the democratic ticket; we protest
against and denounce the practice now
inaugurated by the democratic party
in this state of attending republican
meetings and by show of force and
other lerms of intimidation of dis
turbing such meetings or taking part
therein without the consent or invita
tion of the party calling them.
G. We pledge ourselves to thorough
reform in all departments of the state
government; where abuses shall be
found to exist, and, as an earnest of
the same, declare our purpose of sub
mitting to the qualified voters of the
State the following specific reforms as.
amendments to the State constitution.
1. That the present adjustment of
the bonded debt of the State shall be
2. That the general assembly shall
meet only once in every two years,
and that tho length of no session
thereof shall exceed seventy days.
3. That the number of sessions of
courts of general sessions and common
pleas shall he reduced to two annu
ally in each county, with power re
served to the judges to call special
sessions when necessary.
4. That the veto power of the
governor shall bo so modified as to
allow of tho disapproval of a part
without effect upon the rest of an

be relieved from burdensome taxa
tion by more cqutiablc distribution
of tnxes and by the inauguration of a
.system of licenses fixed upon fair prin
G. That no public funds shall ever
be used for .the support of sectarian
7. That the enormous evil of local
and special legislation shall be prohi
bited whenever private interests can
be protected under general laws.
8. And inasmuch as the system of
free schools was created in tho .State
by the Republican party, and should
be especially lostcrcd and protected
by ;it, wc pledge ourbolves to the sup
port of the. amendment to the Slate
constitution, now before the people,
establishing a permanent tax for the
support of free schools, and prevent
ing the removal of school funds from
the counties where praised.
7. Wc pledge ourselves and the
nominees of the Republican party of
this Stale to the securing of the fol

1. The further and lowest reduction
of salaries of all puhficservauts con- j
sis tent with the necessities of govern- i
2. The reduction of fees and costs,
especially of attorneys in civil cases,

S. Recognizing the enorm ms ex
pen.-e of fencing farms, anil the
senreity of timber in some sections of

ourselves to secure such legislation

upper counties of the State certain

action of the national democratic
house of representatives that the

therefore earnestly recommend that
