FOPiMALLY ACCEPT THE HIGH
TRUSTS CONFIDED TO THEM
BY THE DEMOCRATIC PAR
TY OF THE UNITED
WORTHY THE MEN
IN STRIKING CONTRAST TO TIIE r LATITUDES
OF GARFIELD AND THE BUMPTIOUSNESS
OF ARTHUR, THESE LETTERS WILL
COMMAND THE RESPECT OF
Governor.8 Island, (
New York City July, 29, 1680.
Gentlemen I bave the honor to ac
knowledge the receipt of your letter of
July 30, 18S0, apprising me formally of
my nomination for the office of President cf
the United States by the National Demo
cratic convention lately assembled in Cin
cinnati. I accept the nomination with
grateful appreciation of confidence reposed
in me. The principles enunciated by the
convention are those I have cherished in
the past and will endeavor to maintain in
the tuture. The thirteenth, fourteenth and
fifteenth amendments to the constitution
of the United States, embodying the results
of the war for the Union, are inviolable.
If called to the Presidency I should deem
it my duty to resist with all my power any
attempt to impair or evade the full force
and effect of the constitution, which in
every article, section" and amendment, is
the supreme law - ot the land. The
constitution forms the oasis ot the
government ot the United States. The
powers granted by it to the legislative,
executive and judicial departments, define
and limit the authority of the general gov
ernment. The powers not granted to the
United States by the constitution, nor pro
hibited by it to the states, belonging to
the states respectively or to the people.
The general and state governments, each
acting in its own sphere, without trenching
upon the lawful jurisdiction of the other,
constitute the Union. This Union, com
prising a general government with general
powers and state governments with state
powers for purposes local to the states, is a
policy the foundations of which were laid
in profoundest wisdom. This is the
Union our fathers made, and which has
been so respected abroad and so beneficent
at home. Tried by blood and fire, it
stands to flay a model form of a lree popular
government, a political system which,
lightly administered, lias been and will
continue to be the admiration of the world.
May we not say, in the words of Washing
ton: "The unity of -the government
which constitutes ua ,one people is justly
dear to us." It is the main pillar in the
edifice of our real independence. The sup
port of our peace, safety and prosperity,
and of that liberty we so highly prizo aud
intend at every hazard to preserve. But no
form of government, however carelully de
vised ; no principles, however sound, will
protect the rights ot the people unless the
administration is luitblul and cmcient. It
is a vital principle in our system that neith
er frsud nor force mut be allowed to sub
vert the rights of the people. When fraud,
violence or incompetence controls, the
noblest constitution and wisest laws are
useless. The bayonet is not a fit instrument
for collecting the votes of freemen. It is
cm y by a full vote, tree ballot and fair
count that the people can rule in fact, as
required by the theory of our government.
Take this foundation away and the whole
structure falls. Public office is a trust, not
a bounty bestowed upon the holder. No
incompetent or dishonest persons should
ever be intrusted with it. or, if appointed,
they should promptly be ejected. Our ma
terial interests, varied aud progressive,
demand our constant and united i tlorts. A
sedulous and scrupulous care of the publiw
credit, together with a wise and economical
mananement of our government expendi
tures should be maintained, in order that
labor may be lightly burdened, aud that
all persons may be protected in their rights
to the fruits of their own industry. The
time has come to enjoy substantial benefits
of reconciliation. As one people, we lave
common interests. Let us encourage Lnr
mony and a generous rivalry among our
own industries, which will revive our lan
guishing merchant marine, extend our com
merce with foreign nations, assist our mer
chants, manufacturers and producers to de
velop our vast natural resources and in
crease the prosperity and happiness of our
people. If elected, I shall, with divine fa
vor labor with wliot ability I possess to
discharge my duties with fidelity according
to my convictions, and shall take care to
protect and defend the Union, and to see
that the laws be faithfully and equally ex
cuted iu all parts c f the country alike. I
will assume the responsibility, fully sensi
ble ot the lad that to administer rightfully
""-'ions of the government is to dis
it will be t mot sacred duty that can tie-

reply to your letter of the thirteenth instant,
informing me that I was unanimously nom
inated for the office of Vice-President of
the United States by the late Democratic
National convention, which assembled at
Cincinnati. As foreshowed in tho verbal
remarks made by me at the time of tho de
livery of your letter, I have now to say
that I accept tho high trust with a realizing
sense of its rcsponsiuiity, anu am profound
lv trrateful for the honor conferred. I ac
cept the nomination upon the platform of
principles adopted by the convention,
which I cordially approve, and I accept it
auito as much because of my faith in tho
wisdom and patriotism of the great states
man and soldier nominated on tho same
ticket for President of this United States.
His eminent services to his country, his
fidilitv to the constitution, the Union and
the laws, his clear perception of the correct
principles of goverment as
taught by Jefferson, his scrupu
lous care. to keep the military in strict sub
ordination to the civil authorities, his high
regard for civil liberty, personal rights,
and rights of property, Lis acknowledged
ability in civil as well as military affairs,
and his pure and blameless life, all point
to him as a man worthy of the confidence of
people. Not only a brave soldier, a great
commander, a wise strtesman and a pure
patriot, but a prudent, painstaking prac
tical man of unquestioned honesty, trusted
often with important public duties, faithful
to every trust, and in the full meridian of
ripe and vigorous manhood, ho is, in my
judgment, eminently fitted for the highest
office on earth the President of the United
States. Not only is he the right man for
the place but the timo has come when the
best interests of the country require that
the party which monopolized the executive
deparlmeut of the government for the last
twenty years should de retired. The con
tinuance of that party in power lour years
longer would not be beneficial to the people,
or in accordance with the spirit ot our re
publican institutions. Laws of entail have
not been favored in our system of
government. The perpetnation of proper
ly or place in one family or set of men
has never been encouraged in this country
and the great and good men who formed
our republican government and its tradi
tions wisely limited the tenure ot office.
and in many ways showed their disapproval
ot long leases ot power. Twenty years cf
continuous power is long enough, and has
already led to irregularities and corruptions
which are not likely to be properly expos
ed under the same party that perpetrated
them. Besides, it should not be forgotten
that the last lour years of power held by
that party procured by discreditable means,
and held in defiance of the wishes of a
majority of the people. It was a grievous
wrong to every voter, and to our system of
self-government, which should never be
forgotten or forgiven. Many of the men
now in office were put there because cf
corrupt partisan services in thus defeating
the tairly and legally expressed will of the
majority, and the hypocrisy of that party in
favor of civil service was shown by placing
such men in office and turning the whole
brood of Federal office-holders lof.se to in
fluence the elections. The money of the
people taken out of the public
treasury by these men for ser
vices, often poorly performed, or
not performed at all, is being used
in vast sums with the knowledge and pre
sumed sanction of the administration to
control the elections, and even members of
the cabinet are strolling about the country
making partisan speeches instead of being
in their departments ot Washington dis
charging the public duties for which they
are paid by the people. But with all their
cleverness and ability of a discriminating
public will no doubt read between the lines
of their speeches that their paramount hope
and aim is to keep themselves or their satel
lites four years longer in office. In thut
perpetuation the power of chronic Federal
officeholders, frur years longer will not
oenefit the millions of men and women
who hold no office, but earn their duily
bread by honest industry, is what the
same discerning public will no doubt
fully understand, as they will, also, that it
is because of their own industry and econ
omy und God's bountiful harvests that the
Country is comparatively prosperous, not
because of them, but in spite of them.
This contest is, in tact, between the people
endeavoring to regain the political power
which rightfully belongs to thtm, and to
restore the pure, simple, economi
cal, constitutional government of our
fathers off the one side, and a hundred
thousand Eederal office-holders and their
backers, pampered with place and power
and determined to- retain them at all haz
ards, on the other. Hence the constant
assumption of new and dangerous powers
by the general government under the rule
of the Republican party. The effort to
build up what they call a strong govern
ment, the interference with home and with
the administration of justice in the courts
of the several states, the interference with
the elections through tho medium of paid
partisan Federal ojlioe-holdeis, interested
in keeping their party in power, and caring
more for that thau fur the fairness of the
election. Iu fact, the constant encroach
ments which have been made by that party
upon the clearly reserved rights of the
people, will, it not checked, subvert the
liberties of the people and the government
of limited powers created by the fathers,
and end iu a great consolidated central
government, strong, indeed, for evil, aud
the overthrow of Republican institutions.
The wise men who formed our constitution
knew the evils of a Btrong government
and the long coutinueued political power
iu the same hands, They knew there was
a tendency in this direction in all gov
ernments, and the consequent danger to
republican institutions fioin that cause
aud took pains to guard against it. The
machiuery of a strong centralized
general government can be used to perpet
uate tho same set of men in power
from term to term, until it ceases
to ho a republic or is such only in name,
aud the tendency of the party now in pow
er in that direction is shown in various
ways. Besides, tho willingness recently
manifested by a large number of that party
to elect a president an unlimited number

Illinois Central's warehouse. We visited
the place tho other day and saw at the
first a glance a politician who had for
the time being wisely quit
saving the country in the interest
of Ids family. A lawyer, too, was
there with his sleeves rolled up, apparent
ly totally ignorant of the existence of
Blackstoae, Uroenloaf or Pursous. Besides
terenco with the proper exercise of its
powers must be carefully avoided. The
union of the states under the constitution
must be maintained, and it is
well known that this has always
been the position of both the
candidates on the Democratic Presidential
ticket. It is acquiesced in everwhere now,
and finally and forever settled as ono of
tho results of the war. It is certain beyond
all question that the legitimate results of
the war for the Union will net be over
thrown or impaired should tho Democratic
ticket be elected. In that event proper
protection will be given in every legitimate
way to every citizen, nativo or adopted, in
every section of the republic, in the enjoy
ment of all the rights guaranteed by the
constitution and its amendments. A
sound currency of honest money, of a value
and purchasing power corresponding sub
stantially recognized, by the commercial
world, and consisting of gold and silver,
and paper convertible into coin, will be
maintained ; the labor and manufacturing,
commercial and business interests of the
country will be favored and encouraged in
every legitimate way. The toiling millions
of our people will be protected from
the destructive competition of the
ChineseJ and to that end their emi
gration to onr shores will be proper re
strained. The public credit will, be
scrupuously maintained and strengthened
by rigid economy in public expenditures,
aid the liberties of the people and the
property of the people will be protected by
a government of law and order administer
ed strictly in the interests of all the people
and not of corporation and privileged
classes. I do not doubt the discriminating
justice of the people and their capacity for
intelligent self government, and threfore do
not doubt the success of the Democratic
ticket. Its success would bury beyond
resurrection the sectional jealousies" and
hatreds which have so long been the chief
stock in trade of pestiferous damagogues
and in no other way can this be so effect
ually accomplished. It would restore har
mony and good feeling between all the
sections and makes us, in fact as well as in
name, one people. The rivalry then would
be in the race for the development of ma
terial prosperity. The elevation of labor,
the enlargement of human rights, the pro
motion of education, morality, religion,
liberty, order, and all that would tend to
make us the foremost nation of the earth in
the grand march ot human progress. I am,
with great respect, very truly yours,
