Principles and Asser
The Republicans ol tho United States,
assembled by their delegates in National
convention, pause on the thoshold of their
proceedings to honor the memory of their
ilrst great leader, the immortal champion
of liberty and the rights of the people
Abraham Lincoln; and to cover also
with wreaths of imperishable remembrance
and gratitude the heroic names of later
leaden, who have more recently been
called away from our councils (Srant,
Uarlield, Arthur, Logau and Conkhng.
May their memories bo faithfully cher
We also recall with our greetings and
with prayer for his recovery tho name ol
one of our living heroes whoso memory
will bo treasured in the history both of
Republicans and of the Republic the
name of that noble soldier and favorite
son of victory, Philip II Sheiidan,
In thu spirit of those great leaders, and
of our own devotion to human liberty, and
with that hostility to all forms of despot
ism and oppression which is the funda
mental idea of tho Republican party, vie
sond fraternal congratulations to our fel
low Americans of Iliazil upon their great
net ol emancipation, which completed the
abolition of slavery throughout the two
American continents. Vo earnestly hope
that we may soon congratulate our follow
citizens of Irish birth upon the peaceful
recovery of home rule for Ireland.
We allirm our unswerving devotion to
tho National Constitution and to the in
dissoluble Union of the states : to the au
tonomy reserved the states under the Con
stitution : to the personal rights and liber,
ties of cititens in all the States and Terri
tories in tho Union, and especially to
tho supreme and sovereign right of
every lawful citizen, rich or poor,
nativo or foreign born, white or black, to
cast one frco ballot in public elections,
and to have that ballot duly counted. We
hold tho free and honest popular ballot,
and the just and equal representation of
all tho people, to be the foundation of our
republican government, and demand ef
fective legislation to secum the integrity
and purity of elections, which are tho
fountains of all public authority, Wc
chargo that the present administration
and tho Dcmocratio majority in Congress
owe their existence to the suppression of
the ballot by a criminal nullification of the

Wo are uncompromisingly in favor of

servo the inleiesta of Ktuopc; wo will

cept the issues and cunhdently appeal to
the people lor their judgmeut. The pro
tective system must be maintained. Its
abandonment has always been followed
by general disaster to all interests, except
thou of tho usurer and tlio sherilT. Wo

tho gunoral business, thu labor and the

The Republican party would effect a'l
needed reduction of the National revenue
by repealing tho taxos on tobacco, which
are an annoyance and burden to agriculture,
and the tax upon spirits used in the arts
and for mechanical purposes; and by such
icviUon of the tariff us will tend to check
imports of such articles us are produced by
our people, tho production of which gives
cuiplo)iiient to our labor, and release Irom
import duties those articles of foieign pro
duction (except luxuries) tho like of which
can not bo produced nt home. If there
shall Hill remain a larger revenue that is
requisite for the wants ot the government
we favor tho entire repeal of internal
taxes rather than the surrender of
any part of our pioteotivo system at
tho joint behest of the whisky tiusts and
the agents of foreign manufacturers.
We declare our hostility to the Introduc
tion into this country of foreign contract
labor, and of Chinese labor, alien to our
civilimtlon and our Constitution, and we
demand the rigid enforcement of the ex
isting laws against it, and favor such im
mediate legislation ks will exclude such
labor from our shoies.
We decUre our opposition to all eontbin
atioui of capital organised in trusts or other
wise, to control aibitiarily the condition
ol tiade amoiig ourcitiseus, and we com
mend to Congress aud to the btate l-egu-aturos,
in their respective jurisdictions,
tuoh legislation as will prevent the execu
tion of all scheme to oppress the people by
uuduechaigcs on their supplier, or by un
just tales for the liAiiipoitation of their
products to niMkct. W o appiove the leg.
tslatlou by Congress to prevent alike un
just burdcua and unfair discriminations be
tueeu the SUtes.
We imHuui the policy of apnionriating
the publio lands of tho United State to b
hometteadk for American oiliiens and set
tlers, not aliens, which the Republican
party established in lS6j, against the
jiersisteut opposition of the Democrat in
Congress, and which has brought our gre-it
Western domain Into such magnificent
development. The tttoration of uncart).
sl land grants to the public domain for
the uto of actual settlers, which was begun
under the administration of I'restdeht Ar
thur, should te ooutinued. We deny that
the democratic party has ever restored one
acre to the people, but declate that by the
joint action of tepubltcaus aud democrats,
about fifty millions ot sorts of unearned
lands originally granted for the construe,
tion of railroads have been reiloied to the
public domain, in pursuance of the comli.
ttous inserted by the lepublicaa party in
Ilia original punts. We charge the dem.
ooratic admiouttatloo with failure to exe.
cute the law scouring to settler titles to
their homesteads, and with using apt mo
lUttous made for that purpose, to haras
innocent settlers with spin and ptom.

them, to form for themselves a constitution
and State government, and be admitted
into the Union. Pending the prepara
tion for Statehood, all officers thereof
should be selected from the bona fide
residents and citizen ot the Territory
wherein they are to serve. South Dakota
should of right be immediately admitted
as a State in the Union, under the con
stitution framed and adopted by the
people, and we heartily indorse tho action
of the Republican Senate in twice
passing bills for her admission. The
refusal of the Democratic House of
Representatives, for paitisan purposes, to
favorably consider these bills, s a willful
violation of the sacred American nrindnle
of local self-government, and merits the
condemnation of all just men. Ihe
pending bills in Ihe Senate for acts to
enable the people of Washington, North
uaxocaana Montana l erntones to form
constitutions should be passed without
unnecessary delay. The republican party
pledges itself to do all in its Dower to fa
cilitate the admission "of the territories of
New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho and Ari
zona (o the enjoyment of self-government
as states, such of them as are now quali
fied, as soon as possible, and the others as
soon as they may become so.
The political power of tho Mormon
church in the territories, as experienced iu
the past, is a menace to free institutions
too dangerous to be long suffered. There
fore wo pledge the republican party to ap
propriate legislation asserting tho sover
eignty of the nation in all territories
whero tho same is questioned, and in
turtherance of that end to place upon the
statute books legislation stringent enough
to divorce the political from the ecclesias
tical power, and thus stamp out the
attendant wickedness of polygamy.
Tho republican party is in favor of the
use of both gold and silver as money, and

administration in its efforts to demonetize
Wo demand the reduction of letter

In a republio like ours, where the
citizen is the sovereign and the official the
servant, whero no power is exercised
excopt by the will of the people, it is
important that the sovereign the people
should possess intelliccnco. The free
school is the promoter of that intelligence
which is to preserve us a free nation;
therefore, the state or nation, or both
combined, should support freo institutions
of learning, suflicient to afford to every
child growing up in the land the oppor
tunity of a good common school edu
cation. Wo earnestly recommend that prompt
action be takon by Congress in the en
actment of such legislation as will bet
secure tho rehabilitation of our American
merchant marine, and wo protest against
the paBsago by Congress of a free ship
bill, as calculated to work injustice to
labor by lcsscuing the wages of those
engaged in preparing materials, as well
as thoso directly employed in our ship
yards. We demand appropriations for
the early tebuildiiig of our navy; for the
construction of coast fortifications and
modern ordnpiice, and oilier approved
modern means of defense for the protec
tion of our defenseless harbors and
cities; tor the payment of just pensions
to our soldiers; lor necessary works of
National importance in the improvement
of harbors and the channels of internal
coastwise, and foreign commerce; for the
encouragement of tho shipping interests
of the Atlantic, Gulf and I'uciho States, as
well as for the na men t of the matuiing
public debt. This policy will give em
ployment to our labor, activity to our va
rious industries, increase the security of
our country, promote trade, opon new
end direct markets for our produce, and
cheapen the cost of transportation. We
ntlirm this to be far better for our country
than the democratic policy of loaning tho
government money without interest to
The conduct of foreign nflaiia by the
present administration has been distin
guished by its inelliciency and its coward
ice. Having withdrawn from the Senate
all pouding treaties effected by republican
administration for the removal of foreign
burdens and restrictions upon our com
merce, and for its extension into better
mailtcts, it has neither eflected nor pro
posed any others in their stead. Profess
ing adherence to tho Muuroo doctrine, it
has seen with idle complacency the exten
sion of foreign influence in Central
America, aud of foreign, trade everywhere
among our neighbors. It has refused to
charter, sanction or encourage any Amor,
lean organisation for constructing the
Nicaragua canal, a woik ot vital import
ance to the maintenance of the Monroe
doctrine, and of our national inlluence in
Central and South America, and neces
sary for the development ol trade with
our Pacific territory, with South America
and with the islands and further coasts of
the 1'aoihc Ocean.
We arraign the present democratic ad
ministration for its weak and uupatriotic
treatment of the fisheries question, and
Us pusillanimous surrender of the essen

are enlitUd in Canadian porta uuder the
treaty of iSlS, the reoiprocal maritime
legislation of 18 to, and the comity of

sels receive in the ports of the United
State. We condemn the policy of the

majority iu Congres toward our fisheries

The men who abandoned the republican
party in 1S&4, and continue to adhere to
the dcmoeiaue party, have deserted net
only Ihe cause of hooest government, of
sound finances, of freedom aad purity of
the ballot, but especially have descitcd
the wine of reform in th civil sukc.
Wo will not fail to keep our pledge be
cause they hav broken thetn', orbeaac
their .oaiubdat has broken his. We,
UiMfoft, tepeat our declaration of 1884,
lo-wMj 'The ttAxtu of the civil Mrrtev,
aiMpiesouslr Ugua Bodr the irnuWlean
adiMttiUe' should be cocnpltUd by
lb further cittettoa ol the reform sytlwa
already euUuhd by law, to a the
grades of the service to which it is applic
able. The spirit and purpose of the re
form should be observed in all executive
appointments, and all laws at variance
with the object of existing reform legisla
tion should be repealed, to the end that
the danger to free institutions which lurks
in the power of omcial patronage may be
wisely and effectively avoided."
The gratitude of the nation to the de
fenders of the union can not be measured
by laws. The legislation of Congress
should conform to the pledges made by a
loyal people, anil be so enlarged and ex
tended as to piovide against the oossibility
that any man who honorably wore tho
federal nmform shall become the inmate
of an almshouse, or dependent upon
private charity. In the presence of an
overflowing treasury it would be a public
scandal to do less for those whose valor
ous service preserved the government.
We denounce the hostile spirit shown bv
President Cleveland in his numerous
vetoes of measures for pension relief, and
the action of th: democratic house of
representatives in refusing even a consid
eration of general pension legislation.
In support of the principles herewith
enunciated we invite the co-operation of
patriotic men ol all parties, and especially
ol all workingmen whose prosperity is
seriously threatened by the free trade
policy of the present administration.
Additional clank submitted bv Mr.
Boutclle of Maine, and adopted by an
almost uuanimous vete: The first con
cern ot all good government is the virtue
and sobriety of Ihe people and the puiity
of the home. The republican party
cordially sympathizes with all wise and
well directed efforts for the promotion of
temperance and morality.
