purely celtob. The apeechea agalnet_ the r

a jjstem which givea to one flection a dele- '

The referenca to wool brought out another
round of shouts, and the Convention ?
chewed as though it would never tiro over j
the anti-Chinese sentiment. There is a
campaign speech in every resolution, and
I idrite the talent at home to load up tor l
amice. When the reading of the pla'form
wm finished Mr. Horr, of Michigan, ex*
claimed to tht> folks around him: "That 1
platform needs nothing but a sermon on 1

HIVORT OP Til* COMUITTL'K ON CK1DINTIAW,
Henry Ballard, of Vermont, Chairman
of the Oommitteo on Credentials, reported
that the MBiions of the Committeo had
been almost ccntinuous, leaving tho members
no time to rest. Ho took pleasuro in
saying that their proceedings had been i
entirely harmoniouc and without reference
to personal preferences. The result was a
unanimous report, which announcement
wis received with applause. I
The report of the Committee on Credentials
was then read by Mr. Fort, of New i
Jersey. It was to the effect that the sitting 1
members in all contested casts are outitlid
to their eeaiH, except iu th? case of the I
Nineteenth District of Now York and the
Fifth District of Kentucky, where both <
delegates and contostanta art, admitted to I

The report waa adopted without discus- ;

Mr. Parks, of California, from tho Committee
on Rules, reportod that the Com

of the last Convention, except that it recommended
the adoption of Cushing's
Manual as the parliamentary law of the '
body Instead of the rules of the House of ]
Representatives, except that the proviouB t
question is to be in force as in the House. ]
Mr. Grow, oi Pennsylvania, from the
minority of the committee offered asubsti- 1
lute for the tenth rule, which prescribes ?
the mode of electing delegates to the next j
National Republican Convention. He l
proposed that delegates shall be elected in
the same manner as members of Congress. *
Mr. Parka accented tho proposed amend- ?
sent, Mr. Grow having explained that the *
ielegatee at large are to be elected by the 1
state Conventions "and that the manner of I

lating in Minnesota, tliat he had been *
ilected a delegate to the National Conven*

fould support Blaine, he remarked that ?
in the contrary no sach issue had been c
nade. and that it had been well known
or a year that his Hist choice was and had c
jeen for Arthur, on the ground that he I
rould. he stronit before the public. He r
laid he was friendly to Blaine, but that be I
lad been afisured by a friend of ex-Senator t
Blaine that ho was not onlv not a candi- i
late but did not want to be a candidate.

Mr. Rooeevelt, of New York, inquired
vhat had become of the proposition in regard

ihftDge by which the number of delegates 1

Mr. Thurston, of Nebrsika, moved to j

Mr. Bishop, o! Massachusetts, on behalf
of tbo minority of the committee, reported
a role that each State shall be entitled to
four delegate! at large and one additional
delegate (or each representative at large, if
any; that each territory and the District of
Columbia shall be entitled to two delegates;
that each Congreseional district shall be
entitled to one delegate and an additional
delagata lor every 10,000 xnsjarity votes or
fraction thereof cast for the Republican
Presidential electoral ticket at the last preceding
Presidential election, and that the
Republican National Committee shall
within a year after each Presidential election
certify the repnaenUtion to which
each Statu Is entitled.
Mr. Garrer, of Indiana, snpported the
minority report as entirely in keeping with
the genius of American institutions. It
did not decrease the representation of any
distrlot, but only added to the repreeentation
in accordance with Republican majoritlea.
A WARNING VOICE XROM KENTUCKY.
Mr. Bradley, of Kentucky, opposed the
jalnority report m tomelhing that mlgh
come from the Democratic party, but not
from tke Republican party. There bad been
times vben the South had Bayed the Republican
party. It van Florida that gave
them their President In 1870.''' He warned
the Republican-party--that tbo tarltrquestion
waa coming up before tho country,
and the time might come when tho North*
ern btatea might want the aid o( tho South.
The Southern delegate came here aa freemen,
not aa slaves. They did not ask to
dictate this nomination, bet they declined
to surrender their manhood to the gallows,
which it was now proposed. West Virginia,
North Carolina, Florida and the
Old Dominion, In spite oi Democratic shot
guns and In spite o( legalised murder
which cried to Qod for vengeance, would
give the Republican party their electoral
votes at the coming eloctlou. [ Applause. ]
MANY VOICES IN ??il0TK8T.
Mr. Lynch, of Mississippi, also opposed
tho minority report. It would beilmply
Baying to the ballot-box Btulfjr at the
South and to the shot-gun holdera that
they should have tho benefit o( their
crimes. [Applause.]
A delegate from Iowa declared that the
Mahout sot the South should bo encouraged,
and that Iowa would cant twenty-Blx
solid votes to do bo. [Cheers ]
{.Mr.TownBend, ol New \ork;alaoopK'
sod the proposition aa an attompt to dls*
nchise tho brave Itepublicans of the
South.
Mr. West, of Ohio, also argued against
the minority report. * "**
Mr. I/)ng, of Minachusetts, said it waR
perfectly evident that the Convention w?a
not prepared to adopt the views of the minoritv
report, bat they were going to elect
the President and that fact would go far
toward settling equal rights at the South.
At the end of tho next Presidential term
the matter might be taken up and decided.
He therefore hoped that the matter would
be referred to the next Executive Committee.
[Shouts of dissent]
Mr, Fluey, of Missouri, opposed the minorlty
report. He spoke of the sixty-six
thousand Republicans of Missouri who
united their votes with Iho Greenbackers,
and asked whether they wero to be abandoned
or whether they should not be encouraged
as Mahone had boen encouraged.
who bad saved Virginia to the it ?publicaa
party. [Applause.! >
Mr. O'Hara, of North Carolina, declared
that the adoption of the minority report
would be a total surrender of the political
rights of every Republican in the South,
white as well as black.
Mr. Clayton, of Arkansas, also opposed
the minority report.
Mr. Bishop, of Massachusetts, then withdrew
the report, amid great applause, staling
that it w?s entirely evident that the
lentiment of the Convention was againut it.
The majority report wasjthen adopted.

ate the American people on the attainnent

nuchto render its institutions just, equal i

the rights of all citizjne, for the election

It is the first duty of a good government j
o protect tho rights and promote the inter* i
!8ts of its people. The largest diversity of '
ndustry Is most productive of prosperity j
ind of the comfort and independence of t
he people. We. therefore demand that
he imposition of duties on foreign imports
ihall be made not for revenue only, but
or raisins the reauislto rnvnmuM *
ioverament, Such duties shall be levied i
La to afford security to our diversified in- \
lub'.ries and protection to the rights and

Against the so-called economy system of j

is? failed completely to relieve the people
>f the burden of unnecessary taxation by a
vibe reduction of the surplus. The Ilepubican
party pledges itself to correct the in:quahtics
of the tarifi' and to reduce the
lurplus, no* by the vicious and indiscrim*

oy such methods aa will reliove the tax*

NO IMPORTED LABDR MR US.
The Republican party, having its birth
in a hatred of slave labor and a belief that
all men may be truly free and equal, Is
unalterably oppoaed to placing our workingmen
in competition with any form of
servile labor, whether at homo or abroad.
In this spirit we denounce the importation
of contract labor from Europe or Asia aa
an offense against the spirit of American
institutions, and we pledge ourselves to
