The Republicans ol the United States,
assembled by their delegates in National
convention, pause on the theshold of their
proceedings to honor the memory of their
first croat leader, the immortal champion
of liberty and the riehts of the people
Aluaham Lincoln; and to cover also
with wreaths ofimperishablc remembrance
and gratitude the heroic names of later
leaders, who havo more recently been
called away from our councils Grant,
Uarheld, Arthur, Logan and Conkliug.
May their memories be laithlully cher
ished. We also recall with our greetings and
with prayer for his recovery the name ol
one of our living heroes whoso memory
will be treasured in the history both of
Republicans and of the Republic the
name of that noble soldier and favorite
son of victory, Philip II Sheridan.
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 the Republican party, we
send fraternal congratulations to our fel
low Americans of Brazil upon their great
act ol emancipation, which completed the
abolition of slavery throughout the two
American continents. Ve earnestly hope
that we may soon congratulate our fellow
citizens of Irish birth upon the peaceful
recovery of homo rule for Ireland.
We alhrni our unswerving devotion to
tlio INitional (Jonbtitution and to the in
dissoluble Union of the states : to the au
tonomy reserved the states under tho Con
stitution : to the personal rights and liber
ties of citizens in all the States and Terri
tories in the Union, and especially to
tho supreme ami sovereign right of
every lawlul citizen, rich or poor,
nativo or foreign born, white or black, to
cast ono free ballot u. public elections,
and to have that ballot duly countod. We
bold tho free and honest popular ballot,
and the just and equal representation of
all the people, to be the foundation of our
republican government, and demand ef
fective legislation to securn the integrity
and purity of elections, which are the
fountains of all public authority. We
chargo that the present administration
and tho Democratic majority in Congress
owe their existence to the suppression of
the ballot by a criminal nullification of the
Constitution and laws of the United
We are uncompromisingly in favor of
the American system of protection. We
protest npainet its destruction proposed
by the president and his party. They
servo the interests of Kmope; we will
sepport Iho interests of America. We ac
cept the issues and confidently appeal to
the people for their judgment. The pro
tective system musi be mainta'ncd. Its
abandonment has always been followed
by general disaster to all interests, except
those of tho usurer and tlio sheriff. We
denounce the Mills bill as destructive to
thu general business, the labor and the
fanning interests of the country, and we
htartily endorse tho consistent and
patriotic actions of the Republican Rep
icsentatives in Congress in opposing its

we luvor the entire repeal of internal
taxes rather ihan the surrender of
any part of our protective system at
thu joint behest of the whisky trusts and
iho agents ot lorcign manutacturers.
We declaro our hostility to the introduc
tion into this country of foreign contract
labor, and of Chinese labor, alien to our
civilization aud our Coii'tilution, and we
demand the rigid enforcement of the ex
isting laws agaiust it, and favor such im
mediate legislation as will exclude such
labor from our shores.
We declare our opposition to all combin
ations ofcapital organized in trustsornther
wiae, to control arbitrarily the condition
of trade among our citizens, and wo com
mend to Congress and to tho State Legis
atiires, in their respective jurisdictions,
uuh legislation as will prevent the execu
tion of all schemes to oppress the people by
undue charges on their supplios, or by un
just rates for the transportation of their
products to market. We approve the leg
islation by Congress to prevent alike un
just burdens and unfair discriminations be
i ween the States.
c tealhrm the policy of appropriating
the public, lands of tho United Status to be
homesteads for American citizeus and tat
tlers, not alieus, which the Republican
party established in 1S62, against tho
persistent opposition of the Democrats in
them, to form for themselves a constitution
and Stato government, and be admitted
into the Union. Pending the prepara
tion for Statehood, all officers '.hereof
should be selected from the bona fide
residents and citizen? of the Terriior)
wherein they are to serve. South Dakota
should of right be immediately admitted
as a Stato in the Union, under the con
stitution framed and adopted by the
people, and we heartily indorse the action
of the Republican Senate in twice
passing bills for her admission. The
refusal of the Democratic House of
Representatives, for partisan purposes, to
favorably consider these bills, s a willful
violation of the sacred American principle
of local self-government, and merits the
condemnation of all just men. The
pending bills in the Senate for acts to
enable the people of Washington, North
Dakota and Montana Territories to form
constitutions should be passed without
unnecessary delay. The republican party
pledges itself to do all in its power to fa
cilitate the admission of the territories of
New Mexico, Woming, Idaho and Ari
zona lo 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.
Tho political power of the Mormon
church in the territories, as experienced in
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 the sover
eignty of the nation in all territories
where tho same is questioned, and in
turtherance of that end to place upon the
siaiuic uuuks legisiauuu stringent enougn
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
condemns the policy of the democratic
administration in its efforts to demonetize
We demand the reduction of letter
postage to 1 cent per ounce.
In a republic like ours, where the
citizen is the sovereign and the official the
servant, where no power is exercised
except by the will ol the people, it is
important that the sovereign the people
should possess intelligence. The free
school is the promoter of that intelligence
wnicn is 10 preserve us a tree nation;
thereforo, the state or nation, or both
combined, should support free institutions
of learning, sufficient 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 taken by Congress in tho en
actment of such legislation as will bet
secure the rehabilitation of our American
merchant marine, and we protest acainst
tho passage by Congress of a free ship
bill, as calculated lo work injustice to
labor by lessening the wages of those
engaged in preparing materials, as well
as those directly employed in our ship
yards. We demand appropriations for
the early .ebuilding of our navy; for the
construction of coast fortifications and
modern ordnpnee, and other appioved
modern ineuns of defense for the piotec
tion of our defenseless harbors and
cities; lor the payment of just pensions
to our soldiers; for necessary works of
National importance in the improvement
01 harbors aud the channels of internal
coastwise, and foreign commerce; for the
encouragement of tho shipping interests
of the Atlantic, Gulf and I'acihc States, as
well as for the payment of the maturing
public debt. This policy will kive em
ployment to our labor, activity to our va
rious industries, lucrease the security of
our country, promote trade, open new
and direct markets for . our produce, and
cheapen the cost ol trau-portation. We
atlirm this lo be fur better for our country
than the democratic policy of loaning tho

The conduot of foreign affairs by the
present administration has been distin
guished by its inefficiency and its coward
ice. Having withdrawn from the Senate
all ponding treaties effected by republican
administration tor the removal of foreign
burdens and restrictions upon our com
merce and for its extension into better
markets, it lias neither effected nor pro
posed any others in their stead. Profess

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 official patronage may be
wisely and ettectively avoided.
The gratitude of the nation to the de
fenders of the union can not be measured
bv laws. The legislation of Congress
should conform to the pledges made by a
loyal people, and be so enlarged and ex
tended as to provide against the oosibi!ity
that any man who honorably wore the
federal uniform 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 tor those whose valor
ous service preserved the government.
We denounce the hostile spirit shown by
President Cleveland in his numerous
vetoes of measures for pension relief, and
the action of the 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 of all parties, and especially
of all workingmen whose prosperity is
seriously threatened by the free trade
policy of the present administration.

Boutelle of Maine, and adopted by an
almost uuanimous vete: The first con
cern ot all good government is the virtue
and sobriety of the people and the purity
