New York, Oct. 19. Hon. Whitelaw
Reid's letter accepting the Republican
nomination for vice president was made
public last night. It is addressed to Hon.
V. T. Durbin, Anderson, Ind.,and is dated
Ophir Fann, Oct. 18, 1WJ3. In it Mr. Reid
"When the nomination with which the
national convention had honored me was
formally announced by your committee, I
iccepted it nt once. In doing so I accepted
ilso the principles set forth in the resolu
tions adopted by the convention as the basis
of the appeal to the popular suffrage.
There will be no misunderstanding as to
the purposes of the Republican party in
this contest, and no doubt a3 to the atti
tude of its candidates. What it intends it
has set forth in language that cannot be
mistaken, and they will strive, by all the
lawful means in their power, to enforce its
plainly expressed wilL I
Platforms Important This Year.
"The party platforms so called are
more important this year than usual. Both
the leading candidates haveoncecommand-
ed the approval of the American people in
its highest form of expression. Attention
is therefore concentrated less on the men
themselves and more on the principles each
is put forward to represent, and would,
in case of election, be required to carry
out. It is obvious that the really vital
issues which this year divide parties and
demand a popular decision are those re
lating to the tariff and the currency. For
tunately hot h sides have stated their posi
tions on these snbjectswith directness, sim
plicity and frankness.
The Two Platforms Compared.
"We favor a protective tariff and when in
full power made the present one. Our op
ponents favor a tariff for revenue only and
propose the repeal of the present one. We
maintain thnt the t iriff should cover the
difference in the cost of home and foreign
product earned by Die difference in the
home and foreiyn want's for the lilnir em
ployed upon it. Our opponents distinctly
repudiated the pi-n.x-s,; i. n that American
wages should ii ., si,u red in the matter,
and declared i;i;v.i h:tt a tariff levied for

The proposal of our opponents is to section
ftli.e it again, and thus return to the state
bank system under which it was "rarely
equal to coin, was often at a ruinous dis
count and often worthless.
Changes In the System.
"It is true that the gradual payment of
the government bonds may require some
change the security demanded as a guar
antee for the national bank notes. The
party which devised the system and made
it a magnificent success may be relied
upon to meet that emergency when it
arises; and the one party that assuredly
could not le relied upon in the matter is
the party which has now formally proposed
as its remedy for the difficulty a return to
the semi-barbarous condition of the hetero
genous state bank issues before the war.
The Outlook for Ilimi t:Iim.

practical union of effort for a common solu
tion of the silver problem, with an increased
use of silver, through the renewed interna

policy of the present administration has se

INCREASE OF PROPERTY VALUE.
The Republican l-calcr Claims 944,000,
0N,000 In Thirty Years.
Mr. Rcid points out Utat the "true value"
of all property in the United States has in
creasi d from $1,400,000,000 in 1 SCO to S5S,
000,000,000 in 1890, making a total increase
in the thirty years of Republican rule and
a llepublican protective tariff of $44,000,
Otm.OOO, against the $1,400,000,000 earned in
the previous 250 years. "Our opponents
join issue with us directly and positively as
to the effects of the present tariff. They deny
that there has been any increase of pros
perity under it; declare that wages have
been reduced, and denounce our policy,
saying with a sneer thnt it fosters no in
dustry so much as that of the sheriff. It
has been a fortunate circumstance for the
impartial public, which desires above all
to ascertain the exact facts concerning
such an assertioii.that in the Tegular course
of their official duties a number of Demo
cratic officers have since been required to
report the statistics in their several depart
ments bearing upon this subject.
New York ?nJ New Jersey Reports.
"Such reports have Iteeu made successive
ly by the commissioner of lal-or statistics,
the lnnk commissioner and the board of
equalization of the state of New York; by
the chairman of the savings bank commis
sion and the chief of the bureau of labor
statistics of New Jersey and by others.
All these reports tend to show an increase
during the year lb91, under the present
tariff, in wages, in the value of produce, in
tb deposits in savings -banks or in build
ing and loun associations, and in the value
of real and personal -property as .fixed for

As to the principle, that the November,
I federal government has the right to super
vise federal elections, denunciation thereof
is grotesque. It has been long recognizi-d,
' sustained by the courts, and was enforced
by order of Oct. 5, 1SS6 addressed by G rover
1 Cleveland to his attorney general, Mr. Gar
i Close of the Letter.
The clamor, he says, against the "force"
bill, however, means, if anything, the nul
' lification of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth
amendments to the constitution. He then
refers to the revival of American shipping
under the Republican statutes, and then
pays a high tribute to the administration of
General Harrison, lo;h foreign and domes
tic, and declares that t he "present coudi-
Ition of the country and the
general public confidence in the
administration combine to form the strong
est protest against sujectinu the people to

such a change," He closes as follows: "I

Minnesota Democrats Get No Relief From
St. PAtX, Oct. 19. In the district court
yesterday Judge Brill announced his deci
sion in the mandamus proceedings brought
by the Democratic state committee to com
pel Secretary of State Brown to group the
fusion electors in a different way from
what he had announced. The decision was
that the court had no jurisdiction in the
case and the case was dismissed. It is not
known what steps, if any, will now be
taken. It is conceded that the ballot as
prepared' by the secretary of state under
the law is confusing on the fonr fusion
electors, as they are not grouped together,
but are scattered among the other Populist
electors, the five straight Democratic elec
tors being left by themselves.

New York, Oct. . Political excite

yesterday and many prominent Republi

hope of seeing Blaine. The ex-secretary
did not arise until after 9 o'clock. Senator
Eugene Hale had been waiting for him and
they went in to breakfast together. To the
reporters Blaine sent word that he h d
nothing to say and wished to be considered
out of politics altogether.
