The Republicans ol the United States,
assembled by their delegate in National
convention, pause ou the theshold of their
proceedings to nonor me memory oi wicir
first great leader, the immortal champion
of liberty and the rights of the people
Abraham Lincoln; and to cover also
with wreath of imperishable remembrance
and gratitude the heroic names of later
leaders, who have more recently been
called away from our councils Grant,
Garheld, Arthur, Logan and Conkliug.
May their memories bo laithlully cher
ished. We also recall with our greetings and
with prayer for his recovery tho name ol
one of our living heroes whose 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 the spirit of those great leaders, and
of our own devotion to human liberty, and
with that hostility to all forms ol 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. Vo earnestly hope
that we may soon congratulate our fellow
citizens of Irish birth upon the peaceful
recovery of home rule for Ireland.
We atfiim our unswerving devotion to
the National Constitution and to the in
dissoluble Union of the states : to the au
tonomy reserved tho states under the 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 and sovereign right of
every lawlul citizen, rich or poor,
native or foreign born, white or black, to
cast one free ballot ir. public elections,
and to have that ballot duly counted. We
hold tho freo 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 sccurn the integrity
and purity of elections, which arc tho
fountains of alt public authority. We
charge that the present administration
and tho Democratic majority tn Congress
owe their existence to tho suppression of
the ballot Iiy a criminal nullification of the
Constitution and laws of the United
Wo are uncompromisingly in favor of
thr American system of protection. We
protest against its destruction proposed
by tho proaulent and his party. They
serve the intciests of Europe; wo will
support tho interests of America. We ac
enpt tho issues and confidently appeal to
the people for their judgment. The pro
tective system must be maiuta:ned, Its
abandonment has always been followed
by general disaster to all interests, except
those of tho usurer and tho sheriff. We
denounce the Mills bill as destructive to
thu general business, the labor and the
farming interests of the country, and we
heartily endorse tho consistent and
patriotic actions of the Republican Rep
resentatives in Congress in opposing its

The ltepiblican party would effect a'l

are an annoyancoaud burden to agriculture,

Ubor from out shores.
We declartiour opposition to all combin
ations of capital organized in trustsot ot'-cr
wise, to oonlrol arbitrarily the condition
of trade among our citizens, and we com
mend lo Congress and to the State Legis
atures, in their respective jurisdictions,
suoli legislation as will prevent the execu
tion of all schemes to oppress the people by
umluecharges on their supplies, or by un
just rates for the transpoitation of their
products to market. We approve the leg.
islation by Congress to prevent alike un
just burdens and unfair ducriminations be
tween the States.
We reaffirm the policy of appropriating
the public, lands of the United States to be
homesteads for American citizens and set
tlers, not aliens, which the Republican
party established in 1 86a, against the
liersistent opposition of the Democrats in
Congress, and which has brought our great
Western domain into such magnificent
development. The restoration of unearn
ed laud grants to the public domain for
the uso of actual settlers, which was beguu
under the administration of l'residebt Ar
thur, should be continued, We deny that
the democratic party has ever restored one
acre to the people, but declare that by the
joint action of republicans aud democrats,
about fifty millious ol acres of unearned
lands originally giauted for the construc
tion of railroads have been restored to the
public domain, in pursuance of the coudi
turns inserted by the republican party in
the original grants. We charge the dem
ocratic admtnistiation with failure to exe
cute the laws securing to settlers titles to
their homesteads, ami with using appro
tistlons made for that purpose lo harass
innocent settler with spies and prosecu
tions uuder false pretence of exposing
frauds and vindicating the law.
The government by Congress ot the
Territories is based upon necessity only,
to the end that they may become SUUs
in the Uuiou ; therefore, whenever the con.
ditions of population, material resources,
public intelligence and morally are such
as to seoure a liable leoal government
therein, the people of such Territories
should be permuted, m a rt(ht Inherent ir
them, to form for themselves a constitution
and State government, and be admitted
into the Union. Fending the prepara
tion for Statehood, all officers thereof
shonld be selected from the bona fide
residents and citizens ot the Territory
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 indoise 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 tie 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 ot 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 iu
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 tho sover
eignty of the nation in all territories
where the same is questioned, and in
furtherance of that end to place upon the
statute books legislation stringent enough
to divorce the political from the ecclesias
tical power, and thus itamp out the
attendant wickedness of polygamy.
The 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 tetter
postage to I cent per ounce.
In a republic like ours, where the
citizen is the sovereign and the official the
servant, whero 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
of learning, sullicictit to afford to every
child growing up in the land the oppor
tunity of a good common school edu
We 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 against
the 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 .eliuilding of our navy; for the
construction of coast fortifications aucl
modern ordnance, and other apptoved
modern means of defense for the piotec
tion of our defenseless harbors and
cities; tor the payment of just pensions
to our soldiers; for necessary works of
National importance in the improvement
of harbors and the channels of internal
coastwise, and foreign commerce; for the
uneouragement of the shipping interests
of the Atlantic, Gulf aud Pacific States, as
well as for the payment of the maturing

than the democratic policy of loaning tho

The conduct of foreign affaire by the
present administration has been distin
guished by its inefficiency and us 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
merco and for its extension into better
markets, it has neither eflected nor pro
posed any others in their stead. Profess
ing adherence to tho Monroe doctrine, it
has seen with idle complacency the exton
sinti of foreign influence in Central
America, and of foreign trade everywhere
among our neighbors. It has refused to

ance to the maintenance of the Monroe
doctrine, and of our national influence 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 Pacific Ocean.
We arraign the present democratic ad.
ministration for its weak and unpatriotic
treatment of tho fisheries question, and
its pusillanimous surrender of the essen
tial privileges to which our fishing vessels
are entitled in Canadian ports under the
treaty of 1S1S, the reciprocal maritime
legislation of 18 to, and the comity of
nations, and which Canadian fishing ves
sels receive in the ports of the United
States. We condemn the policy of the
ptescnt administration and the democratic
majority in Congress Inward our fisheries
as unfriendly aud conspicuously unpatri
otic, and as tending to destroy a valuable
national industry, and an indispensable
resource ol defense against a foreign
Ihe name of America applies alike to
all citizeus of the republic, and Imposes
upon all alike the same obligations of
obedience to the laws. At the same time
that citizenship is and must be the pani

and protect him, whether high or low,
rich or poor, in his civil rights. It should
aud must afford him protection at home,
and follow and protect him abroad in

The men who abandoned the republican
party In 1SS4, and continue to adhere lo
the democratic party, have deserted not
only Ihe cause of, honest government, of
sound nnanccs, 01 iredora and purity of
the ballot, but especially have deserted
the causa of ref 01 m in the civil service.
We will not fail to keep our pledges be
cause they have broken theirs', or because
their candidate has broken hit. We,
therefore, repeat our declaration of 1SS4,
to-witj "The reform of the civil service,
auspiciously begun under the republican
administration' should be completed by
the further externum of the reform system
already established by law, to all the
grades of the service to which it is applic
able. The spirit and purpose of the re
form should be observed in ail 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
wnelv and effectively 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 tn the pledges made by a
loyal people, and be so enlarged and ex
tended as to provide against the possibility
that any man who honorably wore tho
federal uniform shall become the inmate
of an almshouse, or dependent upon
private charity. Iu the presence of an
overflowing treasury it would be a publio
scandal to do less for those whose valor
ous service preserved the government.
We denounce the hostile spirit shown by
President Cle eland in his numerous
vetoes of measures for peu-iou 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
ol 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
almost uuanimous vete: The first con
cern ot all good government is the virtue
and sobriety of the people and the purity
of the home. The republican party
cordially sympathizes with all wise and
well directed efforts for the promotion 01
temperance and morality.
