The Republican! ol the United States,
assembled by their delegates in National
convention, pause on the theshold of their
uroceedinps to honor the memory of their
first 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
leaders, who have more recently been
called away from our councils Urant,

wilh prayer for his recovery the name ol
one of our living heroes whose memory
will bo treasured in the history both of
Republicans and of the Republic he
name of that noble soldier and favorite
son of victory, Philip H Sheiidan.
In the 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 tel
low Americana of Braiil upon their great
act ol emancipation, which completed the
abolition of slavery throughout the two
American continents. J We earnestly hope
that we may soon congratulate our fellow-
citizens of Irish birth upon the peaceful
recovery of home rule for Ireland.
We alDrm our unswerving devotion to
the National Constitution and to the in
dissoluble Union of the states : to the au
tonomy reserved tho states under tho Con
stitution : to the personal rights and liber
ties of citiien in all the States and Terri
tories in the Union, and especially to
tho supreme ami sovereign right of
every lawful citizen, rich or poor,
native or foreign born, white or black, to
cast ono free ballot in public elections,
and to have that ballot duly counted. We
hold the free and honest popular ballot,
and the iust 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
charge that the present administration
and the Democratic majority in Congress
owe their existence to the suppression of
the ballot by a criminal nullification otthe

we favor tho entire repeal of internal
taxes rather than the surrender of
any part of our protectivo system at
tho joint behest of the whisky trusts and
the agents of foreign manufacturers.
We declare our hostility to the introduc
tion into this country of foreigu contract
labor, and of Chinese labor, alien to our
civilization and our Constitution, and we
demand the rigid enforcement of the ex
isting laws against it, and favor such im
mediate legislation as will exclude such

Wc reaffirm the policy of appropriating
the publio lands of tho United States to bo
homestead for American citizens and set
tlers, not alieus, which the ltrpublican
party established in 1S62, against the
persistent opposition of the Democrats in
Congress, and which has brought our great
Western domain into such magnificent
development. The restoration of uueam
oil land grants to the public domain for
the use of actual settlers, which was begun
under the administration of President Ar
thur, should be continued. We deny that
the democratic paity has ever restored one
aero to the people, but declare that by the
joint action ol icpublicans and democrats,
about fifty millions ol acres of unearned
lands originally granted for the oonstiuc
tlon of lailroads have been restored to the
public domain, in pursuance of the condi.
tious inserted by the republican party in
the original grants. Wo charge the dem
ocratic adniinistiation with failuie to cue

their homesteads, and with using appro

them, to form for themselves a constitution
and State 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 citizens ol the Territory
wherein they are to serve. South Dakota
should of right be immediately admitted
as a State in the Union, under tho 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 partisau purposes, to
favorably consider these bills, s a willful
violation of the sacred American principle
oflocal 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, Wyoming, Idaho and Ari
zona to 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 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 we pledge the republican party to ap
propriate legislation asserting the sover
eignty of the nation in all territories
where the same ts 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.

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 of the people, it is
important that the sovereign the people
should possess intelligence. 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 free institutions
ol learning, sufficient to afford to every
child growing up in the land the oppor

We earnestly recommend that prompt

secure the rehabilitation of our American
merchant marine, and we protest against
tho passage by Congress of a free ship
bill, as calculated to 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 iubuilding of our navy; for the
construction of coast fortifications aud
modern ordnance, and other appiuved
modern means of defepse for the protec
tion of our defenseless harbors and

National importance in the improvement

ployment to our labor, activity to our va
rious industries, lucrease the security of

than the democratic policy of loaning tho

The conduct of foreigu afiaiis by the
preseut administration has been distin
guished by its inefficiency and its coward
ice. Having withdrawn from the Senate
all pending treaties effected by republican
administration for the removal of foreign
burdens and restrictions upon our com
merce and for its cxtensiou into better
markets, it has neither effected nor pro
posed any others in their stead. Profess
ing adherence to the Munroo doctrine, it
has seen with idle complacency the exten
sion of foreigu influence in Central
America, and of foreign trade everywhere
among our neighbors. It has refused to
charter, sanction or encourage any Amer
ican organization fcr constructing the
Nicaragua canal, a work ot vital import,
auce to the maintehanco of the Monroe
doctrine, and of our national influence in
Central and South America, and neces

We arraign the present democratic ad

treatment of the fisheries question, and
its pusillanimous surrender of the essen

are entitled in Canadian port uuder the
treaty ot Iblb, the reciprocal maritime
legislation of IS30, andjhe comity of
nations, and which Canadian fishing ves
sell receive in the ports of tho United
States. We condemn the policy of the

majority in Congress toward our fisheries

The name of Ameiica applies alike to
all citizens of the republic, and imposes
upon all alike the same obligation of
obedience to the laws. At the same time
that citizenship la and must be the pan
oply and safeguard of him who wear it,
and protect him, whether high or low,
rich or poor, in his eivil rights. It should

and follow and protect him abroad in
whatever land he may be on a lawful
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 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, and he so enlarged and ex
tended as to provido against the possibility
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 for 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 ol
patriotic men of all parties, and especially
of all workingmen whose prosperity is
seriously threatened by the free trade
policy of the present administration.
Additional plank submitted by Mr.
Boutelle of Maine, and adopted by an
