Tho name of Americuii upplies alike to

on all alike tho same obligation of obedi
enco to the lawa. At tho eatno time
that citizenahiu ia and must bo the mn-

Tho men who abandoned tho Itermbli-
can party in 181 aud continuetoadhere
to tho Democratic party have deaerted
the cause of reform in the civil aervice.
We wlll not fail lo keen our nledcea bc-
cause they have broken thcira or be
cauae their candidate liai broken hia.
We therefore reneat our declaration of
1884, towlt: "The reform ofthe civil
aervice, ampicioualy begun under the
Uepublican ndminiatration. Bhould be
completed by the further cxtension of
mo relorm system already calublished
by law to all gradea nf tho sprvico to
which it apiilicable. The snirit and nur-
poae of the reform should be obtrved
in all executive n)pointiuenla, and all
iiws at variauce with tbe object of ex
isting reform legii'lalion should bo re
pealed ln tbo cnd that the dangera to
free institutiona which lurk iu the pow
er of nfllcial patronace may te wiaelv
and effectively avoided."
llio gratitude of the nation to thede
fendcra of the Union cannot bo meaa
ured by lawa. Tho legialation of Con
tresa should conform to tlie pledge
madc by n loyal jreople, and be so en
largeil nnd extended ua to prcvide
againat the possibility that any mun
who woro the federal uniform shall be
como an inmate of an alinshouae or dc
pendent upon private charity.
ln tne presence of an overllowing
treaeury it would be a public scandal to
do lesa for thoae whose vab roua eervice
savcd the govtrnment. We denounce
the hostilo apirit ehown by Preaident
