FAITH THAT IS IN US
Platform of the Republicans of
An Admirable Document to Which
Aini-ricinN Arc Asked to
Following in the national republican
platform adopted at the Philadelphia
convection, which urmnimouHlv renom
inated for president William McKinley
and for vice president Governor Theo
dore Roosevelt of New York with but
one uncant vote liin own:
The republicans of the United States,
through their chosen representatives, met in
national convention, looking back upon an
unrturpi^ao.i record of achievement aril look
ing forward into a great fitld of duty and
opportunity and appealing 1 to the judgment of
th. ir countrymen, make these declarations:
The expectation in which the American
people, turning from the democratic party,
entrusted power four yaars ago with the re
publican chief magistrate and a repnblican
congress has been met and satisfied. When
the people then assembled at the polls, after a
term of democratic legislation and adminis
tration, busmen* was dead, industry paralyzed
and the national credit disastrously impaired.
The country's capital was hidden away and
its labor distressed and unemployed. The
democrats had no other plan with which to
improve the ruinous conditions which they
had themselves produced than to coin silver
at tiie ratio of lti to 1. The republican party,
denouncing this plan as sure to produce con
ditions even worse than those from which
relief was nought, promised to restore pros
perity by means of two legislative measures —
a protective tariff and a law making gold
the standard of value. The people by great
majorities issued to the republican party a
commission to enact these laws. This com
mission has been executed and the republican
pledge has been redeemed, prosperity more
general and more abundant than we have
ever known has followed these enactments.
There is no longer any controversy as to the
value of any government obligation. Every
American dollar is a gold dollar or its equiv
alent and American credit stands higher
than that of any nation. Capital is fully
employed and everywhere labor is profitably
Exports off a Century.
No single fact can more strikingly tell the
story of what republican government means
to the country than this—that while during
the whole period of % years, from 1801 to
ISH7, there was an excess of exports over
imports of only £383,028,497, there has been
in the short three years of the present re
publican administration an excess of exports
over imports in the enormous sum of $1,483,
--738,049, and while the American people, sus
tained by this republican legislation, have
been achieving these splendid triumphs in
their trade and commerce, they have con
ducted and in victory concluded a war for
liberty and human rights. No thought of
national nggndizement tarnished the high
purpose with which American standards were
It was a war unsought and patiently re
sisted, but when it came the American gov
ernment was ready. Its fleets were cleared
for action. Its armies were iv the field and
the quick and signal triumphs of its forces on
land and sea bore equal tribute to the courage
of American soldiers and sailors and the fore
sight of American statesmanship. To the
millions of th>» human race there was given a
"new birth of freedom'" and to the American
people a new and noble responsibility.
President Heartily Endorsed.
We indorse the administration of William
McKinley. Its acts have been established in
wisdom and in patriotism and at home and
abroad it has distiuctly elevated and extended
the influence of the American nation. Walk
ing untried paths and facing unforseen re
sponsibilities, President McKinley has been,
iv every situation, the true American patriot
and upright statesman, clear in vision, strong
in judgment, firm in action, alway inspiring
and deserving the confidence of his countr\
In asking the American people to indor.se
this republican record and to reuew their com
mission to the republican party we remind
them of the fact that the menace to their pros
perity has always resided in democratic prin
ciples and no less in the general incapacity of
the democratic party to conduct public affairs.
The prime essential of business prosperity is
public confidence in the good sense of the gov
ernment and its ability to deal intelligently
with all Dew problems of administration and
legislation. Tnat confidence the democratic
party has never earned. It is hopelessly in
adequate and the country's prosperity, when
democratic succep.s at the polls i.- announced,
halts and ceases in mere anticipation of dem
ocratic blunders and failure?.
Gold Standard Defended.
We renew our allegiance to the principle of
the gold standard, and declare our confidence
in the wisdom of the legislation of the Fifty
sixth congress, by which the parity of all our
money and the stability of our currency on a
gold t>a>is has been secured. We recognize
that interest rates are a potent factor in pro
duction and business activity, and for the pur
pose of further equalizing and of further low
ering the rates of interest, we favor such
monetary legislation an will enable the varying
needs of the season and of all sections to be
properly met in order that trade may be
evenly sustained, labor steadily employed and
commerce enlarged. The volume of money in
circulation was never bo great per capita as it
is today. We declare our steadfast opposi
tion to the free and unlimited coinage of
silver. No measure to that end should be con
sidered which was without the support of the
leading commercial countries of the world.
However firmly republican legislation may
seem to have served the country against the
peril of base and discredited currency the
election of a democratic president could not
fail to impair the country' 4 credit and to
bring once more into question the intention of
the American people to maintain upon the
gold standard the parity of their money circu
lation. The democratic party must be con
vinced that the American people will never
tolerate the Chicago platform.
The Trust Problem.
We recognize the necessity and propriety
of the honest co-operation of capital to meet
new business conditions and especially to ex
tend our rapidly increasing foreign trade, but
we condemn all conspiracies and combinations

intended to restrict business, to create mon
opolies, to limit production or to control prices
and favor such legislation as will effectually
restrain and prevent all such abuses, protect
and promote competition and secure the rights
of producers, laborers and all who are en
gaged in industry and commerce.
Faith in Protection
We renew our faith in the policy of protec
tion to American labor. In that policy our
industries have been established, diversified
and maintained. By protecting the home
market the competition has been stimulated
and production cheapened. Opportunity to
the inventive genius of our people has been
secured and wages in every department of
labor maintained at high ratts, higher vow
than ever before, always distinguishing our
working people in their better condition of
life horn those of any competing country.
Kiijoyiug the ble-sings of American common
schools, secure in the right of pelf government
and protected in the occupancy of their own
markets, their constantly increasing knowl
edge and skill have enabled them finally to
enter the markets of the world. We favor
the associated policy of reciprocity 30 directed
as to open our markets on tavorable terms for
what we do not ourselves produce in return
for free foreign markets.
In the further interest of American work
men we favor a more etfective restriction of
the immigration of cheap labor from foreign
lands, the extension of opportunities of educa
tion for our children, to raaise the age limit
for child labor, the protection of free labor as
against contract, convict labor, and an etfe;:
tiw- system of labor insurance.
Our present dependence on foreign ship
ping for nine-tenths of our foreign carrying
is a great loss to the industry of this country.
It is also a serious danger to our trade, for its
sudden withdrawal in the event of European
war would seriously cripple our expanding
foreign commerce. The national defence anil
naval efficiency of this country, moreover,
supply a compelling reason for legislation
which will enable us to recover our former
place among the trade carryirg fleets of the
This nation owes a debt of profound grati
tude to the soldiers and sailors who have
fought its battles aDd it is the government's
duty to provide for the survivors and for the
widows and orphans of those who have fallen
in the country's wars. Ihe pension laws
founded in this just sentiment should be lib
eral and Hhould be loyally administered and
preference should be given wherever practi
cable with respect to employment in the pub
lic service to soldiers and sailors and to their
widows and orphans.
The Civil Service
We commend the policy of the republican
party in maintaining the efficiency of the civil
service. The administration has acted wisely
in its effort to secure for pubiic service in
Cuba, Puerto Kico, Hawaii and the Philip
pine islands only those whose fitness has been
determined by training and experience. We
believe that employment in the public service
in these territories should be confined as tar us
practicable to the inhabitants.
It was the plain purpose of the fifteenth
amendment to the constitution to prevent 'dis
crimination on account of race or color in
regulating the elective franchise. Devices of
state governments whether by statutory <>r
constitutional enactment to avoid the purpose
of this amendment are revolutionary and
should be condemned.
Public movements looking to a permanent
improvement of the roads and highways of
the country meet with our cordial approval
and we recommend this subject to the earnest
consideration of the people and of the legisla
tures of the several states.
We favor the extension of the rural free de
livery service wherever its extensijn may be
In further pursuance of the constant policy
of the republican party to provide free homes
on the public domain we recommend adequate
national legislation to reclaim the arid lands
of the United States, reserving control of the
distribution of water for irrigation to the re
spective states and territories.
We favor home rule for and the early ad
mission to statehood of the territories of New
Mexico, Arizona and Oklahoma.
lleduetion off War Taxes.
The Dingley act, amended to provide suf
ficient revenue for the conduct of the war, has
so well performed its work that it has been
possible to reduce the war debt in the sum of
£40,000,000. So ample are the government's
revenues and so great is the public confidence
in the integrity of its obligations that its new
ly funded two per cent bonds sell at a pre
mium. The country is now justified in ex -
pecting, and it will be the policy of the re
publican party to bring about a reduction of
the war taxes.
We favor the construction, ownership, con
trol and protection of an Isthmian canal by
the government of the United States.
IS'ew markets are necessary for the increas
ing supplies of our tarin products. Every ef
fort should be made to open and obtain new
markets, especially in the orient, and the ad
ministration is warmly recommended for its
successful effort to commit all trading and
colonizing nations to the policy of the open
door in China.
In the interest of our expanding commerce,
we recommend that congress create a depart
ment of commerce and industries in the charge
of a secretary with a seat in the cabinet. The
United States consular system should be re
organized under the supervision of this new
department, upon such a basis of appointment
and tenure as will render it still more service
able to the nation's increasing trade. The
American government must protect the per
son and property of every citizen wherever
they are wrongfully violated or placed in
We congratulate tha women of America up
on their splendid record of public service in

President McKinley has conducted the for
eign affairs of the United States with dis
tinguished credit to the American people. In
releasing us from the vexatious European al
liance for the government of Samoa his course
is especially to be commended. By securing
to our undivided control the most important
island ef the Samoan group, and the best har
bor in the Southern Pacific, every American
interest has been safeguarded.
We approve the annexation of the Hawaiian
islanda to the United States.
We commend the part taken by our govern
ment in the peace conference at The Hague.
We assert our steadfast adherence to the
policy announced in the Monroe doctrine.
The English Boer War.
The provisions of The Hague conference
was wisely regarded when President McKiti
ley tendered his friendly offices in the
interest of peace between Great Britain and
the South African republic. While the
American government must continue the policy
of Washington, affirmed by every succeed
ing president and imposed upon us by The
Hague treaty of non-intervention in European
controversies, the American people earnestly
hope that a way may soon be found honorable
alike to both contending parties, to terminate
the strife between them.
In accepting, by the treaty of Paris, the
responsibilities of our victories in the Spanish
war, the president and the senate won the un
doubted approval of the American people.
>io other course was possible than to destroy
Spain's sovereignty throughout the West In
dies and in the Philippine islands. That
course covered our responsibility before the
world and with the unorganized population
whom our intervention had freed from Spain,
to provide for the maintenance of law and
order and for the establishment of good gov
ernment and for the performance of interna
tional obligations. Our authority could not
be less than our responsibility and wherever
sovereign rights were tended, it became the
high duty of the government to maintain its
