Delaratls r PrlMlrlea,
For the benefit of members of the
order and the information of the pub
lic generally, we publish the following
declaration of principle1 :
Profoundly impressed with the truth
that the National Grange of the
United States definitely proclaim to
the world its genera objects, we here

1. United by the strong and faith
ful tie of Agriculture, we mutually
resolve to labor for the good of our
Order, our country and mankind.
2. We heartily endorse the motto:
'In essentials, Unity: in Don-essen-
tials, Liberty: in all things, Charity."
3. We shall en leaver to advance
our cause by laboring to accomplish
the following objects.

To maintain inviolate our laws, and
to emulate each other to hasten the

To reduce our expenses, both indi-,
vidua! and co-operative.
To buy leas and produce more, in
order to make our farms self-sustain-
To diversify our crops, and crop no i
ore than we can cultivate. I
To condense the weight cf our
ports, selling less in the bushel
more on hoof and in fleece.
To systematize our work and calcu
late intelligently on probabilities.
To discontinue the credit system,
the mortgage system, the fashion sys
tem, and every other system tending
to prodigality aud bankruptcy.
We propose meeting together, talk
ing together, working together, buy-

ciarion mar require.

Faithful adherence to thee princi

We wage no aggressive warfare

On thejeontrary, all our acts and nil

cerned, arc not only for the benefit of
the producer and consumer, but also
for all other interests that tend to
bring these two parties into speedy

We shall, therefore advocate for
every State the increase in every prac
tical way of all facilities for tianspor

We adopt it aa our fixed purpose to
"open out the channels in Nature

commerce may flow freely."

We are opposed to excessive salaries,
hiirh rates of iuterest, and exhorbi
taut Jr cent, profits in trade. They
greatly increare our burdens and do
not bear a' proper pnportion to the
profit of jroduct rs.
We desire only ?lf protection of
every true interest tf our land by le
gitimate transaction, legitimate trade
and legitimate profit.
We shall advance th cause of edu
cation among ourselves and for our
children, by all juat means within
our power. We especially advocate
for our agricultural and indusUial col
kiges. that practical agriculture, do
mestic science, aud all the arts which
adorn the home, be taught in their
course of study.
5. We emphatically and wnccrely
assert the oft-repcated truth taught in
our organic law, that the Grange,
National, State or subordinate, is not
a Klitical or party organization. No
Grange, if true to its obligations, can
discus, political or religious questions,
nor call political conventions nor nomi
nate candidates, nor evar discuss iheir
merits in its meetings.
Yet the prinociples we teach under
lie all true politics, all true statesman
ship, and, if properly carried out, w ill
Mtt mimlirr. But we mLL-t I
ih la iu miod that i oa ljji '
coming. a Grange member gives up
that inalienable riht and duty which
belongs to every American citizen, to
take a proper interest in the politics
of his country.
On the contrary, it is the right of
every member to do all in his power
legitimately to influence for good the
action of any political party to which
It is his dutv to do all he can in his
own party to put down bribery, cor
ruption and trickery; to see that none
but competent, faithful and honest
men, who will unflinchingly stand by
our interests, are nominated for all
positions of trust, and to have carried
out the principles which should always
characterize., every (JiOnge niemiK;r,
that the office should seek the man,
and not the man the office.
We acknowledge the broad princi
ple, that difference" of opinion is no
crime, and hold that, 'Progress to
ward tru;h is made bv difference of
opinion," while "the fault lies in bit
terness of controversy."
We desire a proper equality, equity
and fairness; protection f-r the weak,
restraint upon the strong: in short
justly distributed burdens, and justly
distributed power. Ihese are Ameri
can ideas, the very essence of Ameri
can independence, and to advocate the
contniryHM unworthy.mf the sons and
daughters of an American republic.
We cherish the belief that sectional
ism is, aud of right should, be, dead
and buried with the past. Our work
is fur the present and future. In our
agricultural brotherhood and its pur
poses, we shall recognize no North, no
South, no East, no West.
It is reserved by every Patron, as
the right by every freeman, to affili
ate with any party that will best car
ry out his principles.

Many are excluded by the nature
of our organization, not because they
are professional men, or artisans" or
lalorers, Init because they have nut a
sufficient direct interest in tilling or
pasturing the soil, or may have some
interest in conflict with our purjwse.
