The Committee on Platform reported
The Republican party of the State
of Missouri, in convention assembled,
congratulate the people upon the rapid
growth of the Republican sentiment
through the country, and especially
in the State of Missouri, during the
last three years. It is a source of
great pride that or party is recognized
as the champion and defendant of the
true interests of the American jieople.
After three years of financial wreck
and bussiness failure the-people again
turn to the Republican partv as the
injouiy political organization that can
it guUe the nation to the hiirhest
commercial standing among the na
tions of the earth.
We steadfastly adhere to the Anier
ean doctrine of protection. It is now
recognized as the one dominant, mas
terful principle that will bring pros
perity to the country. Under a Dem
ocratic tariff our industries are lan
guishing, labor is forced to idleness,
capital is without a iieid for invest
ment, and our home market has been
largely destroyed. We demand such
duties on all imported commodities,
the like of which are produced by
our own people, as will give the Amer
ican labor and American capital the
advantage in our own market over
foreign products of like kind. Such
duties shall be sufficient to cover the
difference between American wages
and wages in foreign countries, and
excepting luxuries, all imported
commodities, the like of which can not
be successfully produced in this coun
try, shall be wn the free list.
V. e demand a return to the sound
Republican policy of protection and
reciprocity under the doctrine of re
ciprocity as advocated by Blaine and
enforced by the Harrison administra
tion. Our exports were vastly in
creased and new and enlarged markets
were opened for our farm products.
The repeal of that law by the Demo
cratic Congress has closed themarkets
of many foreign countries to a large
portion of American products.
We are firm and emphatic in our
demand for honest money. We be
lieve that mr money should rot be
inferior to the money of the most en
lightened nations of the earth. We
a iv unalterably opposed to every
scheme that threatens to debase or de
preciate our currency. We favor the
use of silver as currency, but to the
extent only and under such l-ogulations
that its parity with the prsent gold
standard can be maintained. In con
sequence are opposed to the free, un
limited and independent coinage of
sil ver at a ratio of lit to 1.
We denounce the present Adminis
tration for its hostility to the l.'uion
soldier, and we pledge anew to the
veterans of the republic a watchful
care and recognition of their just
claims apoii a grateful pooplvi.
We i-.-cog.iize the Hon. Wm. Mc-ivitih-y
as the champion of the doctrine
of protection, a gallant soldier, an
able statesman and a true and loyal
American, and the delegates elected
by this Convention are directed to
cast their votes for William McKinley
for President of the United States. i
