This action xraa taken after trie receipt of a

iS«n, who, xrith bis stepson, Cromwell Varier. a

American negotiators.

"Perdicaris 'Alive or Raixuli Dead "
Thrills Convention Delegates.
Chicago, June "Perdicaris alive or RaiEulJ
dftei!. 1 " went throurh the convention like an elec
tric thrill, and it was more talked about to
r.:*ht than err feature of the day> work, not
even excepting th» platform, which naturally
claimed m«<-h attention. The prevailing Impres
«ion was that, If. Secretary Hay had sent the
telegram, It was after consultation with the
I*re?idert. tnd that there must have been ample
Justification. Delegates from all sections of tho
country discussed It In all its potential phases.
ar.a in uitr.ctt «very Instance warmly commend
ed It.
"It is pithy, pungent and peremptory. 1 like
it, and so flo th* people." said Senator L«ouls B.
M^orr^s. of Maryland.
"•t'« the kind of a telegram." said Senator
*P«oner. of Wisconsin, "that would provoke
rapturous applause In any political convention.
It touch a popular chord. This coverriir.ent is
kound to protect its citizens abroad as well as
•-t home. I don't believe Secretary Hay would
have e«-!jt »u< h a BJKMSapi * ithout ample Justifi

Charles H. Grosvenor, of Ohio. "The people ad

cation la sufficient. I assume that the message
*'*s sent by Secretary Hay after careful consid
•ration. It may not be exactly couched In
diplomatic words, but its meaning Is MnmlFt;:k

To hmi'iun. tmiri freah nnrtheaflt t* TirH wtoda.
The Republican platform as adopted yesterday at th? Chicago convention contains
these declarations of principles:
Protection which guards and develops onr industries is -t cardinal polk y of the Re
publican party.
We insist upon the maintenance of the principles of y>. trction, .md. therefore, rates
of duty should be readjusted only whrn conditions hnve > changed that the public
Interest* demands their, alteration, but this w«rk cannot sz(< w be committed to any other
hands than those of the Republican party. To intrust it I i th«* Democratic party is to
Invite disaster.
A Democratic tariff has always been followed by business adversity, a R< pul
tariff by business prosperity. To a Republican Congress and a Republican President
this great question can be safely intrusted. When the only free trade country among tin
great nations agitates a return to protection the chief protr-. ihv country should not faltet
in maintaining it.
We hare extended widely our foreign markets, and wt: |jelieve in ific adoption of -.11
practicable methods for their further extension, including rommerciaJ ro iprocity wber
ever reciprocal arrangements can be effected consistent will: the principle of protection
and withont injury to American agriculture, American Lib. • or any American industry.
We believe it to be the duty of the Republican party to uphold the gold standard
and the integrity and varue of our national currently. llm maintenance <>t th
standard, established by the Rrpnbllcajf partr, cannot safrc !><• committed to the
cratic party, which resisted its adoption an<f has nercr jri n\ any proof since thai time
of belief in it or fidelity to it. 4
We favor such Congressional action as sliaJl detcrrnii, - whether bj specia] diacrim
inations the elective franchise in any State has been, unccstihitioi! -ill ; limited, and, if
such is the case, we demand that representation in Cong, . ss and in the electoral col
leires shall be proportionally reduced ns directed by the ■Constitution of the United
Combinations of capital and of labor are the results f thr economic movement of
the age, but neither must be permitted to infringe upon t),,^ rights and int. rots of the
people.' Such combinations, when lawfully formed for 1 wft;l purposes are alike en
titled to the protection of the laws, but both are subject \o the laws and neither can be
permitted to break them.
We favor legislation which will encourage nnd buil,! up th>' American merchant

of the Republican party.
We commend the vigorous efforts made by the administration to protect Am ri

London. June 23.-"The Times," the only Lon
