We reamrtn the policy of appropriating
the public lands of the United States to be
homestead, for American citizens and set
tlers, not aliens, which the Rrpublion
party established in 1862, against the
persistent opposition of the Democrats in
Congress, and which has brought our great
Western domain into such magnificent
Hnvelonment. The restoration of unearn
ed land grants to the public domain for
the use of actual settlers, which was begun
under the administration of Presidei.t Ar
thur, should be continued. We deny that
the democratic party has ever restored one
aero to the people, but declare that by me
joint action 01 republicans and tttmocrais,
about fifty millions ol acres of unearned
lands i.r.i'inallv aranted for the construc
tion of railroads have been restored to the
public domain, in pursuance of tho condi
tions inserted by the republican party in
the original gr-nts We charge t)ic dem
ocratic administiation with failure to
cute the laws' securing to settlers titles to
their homesteads, anil with using appro
riationa made, for that purpose to harass
innocent settlers with spies and prosecu
tions under false preltuce of exposing
frauds arid vindicating the law.
The government by Congress of the
Territories Is based upon necessity only,
to the end that Ihey may become States
in the Union; therefore .whenever the con
ditions qf population, material resources,
public intelligence and morally are such
as to secure a stable lecal government
therein, the people of such Territories
should be permitted, as a rif,ht inherent i
them, to form for themselves a constitution
and State government, and be admitted
Into the Union. Pendinc the prepara
tion for Statehood, all officers .hereof
should 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 State in the Union, under the con
stitution framed and adopted by the
people, and We heartily indoiBe the action
of the Republican Senate in twice
passing bills for her admission. The
refusal of the Democratio 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
pendiug 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 lelf-goternment
as states, such of them as 9 re 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 in
the past, is a menace to free institutions

propriate legislation asserting the oov'-r-eiguty
of the nation in all territories
where tho same is questioned, and in
furtherance of that end lo place upuii the

to divorce the political from the ecclesias
tical power, and thus stamp out the
attendant wickedness nf polygamy.

In a republic like ours, where the
citizen is the sovereign and ihu official the
servant, where no power is exercised
except by the will ol the people, it is
important that the sovereign the people
- should po.suji intelligence. The free
schuol is the promoter of that intelligence
which Is to preserve us a free nation;
therefore, the state or nation, or both

child growing up in the land the oppor
tunity of a good common school edu
cation. We earnestly recommend that prompt
action be taken by Congress in the en

ice. Having withdrawn from the Senate
all pending treaties effected liy republican
administration for the removal of foreign
burdens and restrictions upon our com

markets, it ha,s neither effected nor pro
posed any others in their stead. Profess
ing adherence to the Monroe doctrine, it
has seen with idle complacency the exten
sion of foreign influence in Central
America, and of foreign trade everywhere
amone our neighbors. It has refused lo
charter, sanotfon or encourage any Amer
ican organization for constructing the
Nicaragua canal, a work ot vital import
ance to the maintenance of the Monroe
doctrine, and of our national influence in
Ceiitral and South America, and neces
sary for the development ol trade with
our Paci6c territory, with South America
and with the islands and further coasts ol

sels receive in the ports of the United
States. We condemn the policy of -the

only the cause of bnnqst government, of
sound hnances, 01 Irwiiora ana puniy oi
the ballot, but especially have deserted
the caue of refpnu in tho civil service.
We will not fail to keep our pledges be
cause they have broken theirs', or because
their candidato has broken his. We,
theiofore, repeat our declaration of 1884,
to wit; "The reform of the civil Bcrvice,
auspiciously begun under the republican
administration' should be completed by
the further extension 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 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
lal people, and be so enlarged and ex
tended as to provide against the possibility
that any man who honorably wore the
lederal uniform shall become the inmate
of an almshouse, or dopendent upon
private charity. In the presence of an
overflowing treasury it would be a public
siiaiulal to do less for those whose valor-
UK service nreserved the soverntnent.
We demiunce the hostile spirit shown by j
1'ir-ident Cleveland in his numerous
vetoes of measures for pension relief, and
the action of the democratiq house of
ri'Dn-suntaliyni refusing even a consid
eration l general pension legislation.
In siiDoort of the principles herewith
enunciated we inyite the co-operatipn pi
patriotic men of all par ties,, and especially
ol all workmgmen whose prosperity is
seriously threatened by :he free trade
po'icy of the present administration.
Additional plank submitted by Mr.
R-iiltelle of Maine, and adopted by an
almost uuanimous vete: The first ccn.
cent ot all good government; is the virtue
and sobriety of the people and the putjty
of the home. The republican party
cordially sympathizes with all wise and
well din cud efforts for the promotion of
temperance ami morality.
