If xre frsqftlre for the eatw ff thfa
'tnarkahlo change in tho u-ual
juweof trade, it will bo found to
proceed directly from the system ofj
protection to horue Industriort." I
y tills the importation of iron was!
lWked,
t|
and the. investment of capi-
jn our own iron industries made
profitable. Development* followed
ith n rapidity never before known.
Millions of capital were employed in
uikli'ig new furnuctnin Pennsylva
nia, Michigan, Miibouri, and other
-tutts. The aggregate product ofj
ron was, in consequence, largely in-J
reased, while at the same time, pri-i
•os weir reduced, until competition]
in the English markets has been
made profitable.
As a single, but at the eame time
inost forcible illustration of tho re
mits of protection, take the article of
»teel-faced rails. Formerly the
trucks on our railroads were laid with
iron rails. In 1858 to 1860 tho supe
riority and tho economy of steel
rails were established. Just then
i'rufeSHor Jles^mer ha-l completed,
most sucepafully, Ills method of con
verting iron into steel by a new and
lipid process, and at a much less cost
than waa formerly required. Eng
land reaped the benefit of the discov
vjy, and went largely into the man
ufacture of steel rails, not only for
her own railroads, but for shipment
to the United States. .But British
j"t*!ol rail* cost $200 per ton yet ooe
of the gfeat railroad men of this coun
try remarked that "he would rather
pay that price for steel rails than use
iron rails if they cost liim nothing."
In 1862 and 1863 capitalists in the
United Htates purchased the right of
uning the Bessemer patents, and im
mediately commenced the erection
of establishmonts for the manufac
ture of steel rails. Congress put a
duty of one cent a pound on import
ed rails, and in 1803 rails of American
manufacture were supplied in limi
ted quantities at $175 per ton. The
price of English rails was immedi
ately reduced with the view of con
tinuing themonoply of the American
markets. But our product of steel
r»iIs had increased in 1*64 and 180o
and the price was further reduced to
$loO per ton. The English competi
tors fell even below that figure in
the price of their rails, and the com
petition continued until our manufac
turers reduced tho cost of rails to $10Q
|*r ton for largo contracts, and $112
for «mall lots.
Yet at that price they assert
that the business under the pres
ent tariff can be made entirely suc
dftwfuJ.
Without the cent a pound duty, no
American capitalist could have been
found to invest in an enterprise that
could not possibly have succeeded in
it* infancy against British competi
tion.

2d, That we insist upon
the riijht and duty of the State to con
trol everyfranchise of whatever kind
it grunt* and while we do not wish
that any injii-tice shall bo done to the
individual or *oi porution who invests
capital or industry in enterprises of
this kind, we yet demand that no
franchise nbull be granted which is
prejudicial to the public, interests, or
in which the riehis and interests of
the State and the people are not care
fully and fully guarded.
d. That the producing,
commercial and indu»trial interests of
the country should tvo the I .est and
cheapest modes of transportation possi
ble and while actual capital invented
in such means of transit, whether by
railroad or otherwise, should be per
mitted the riyht of reasonable remun
eration, an almse in their management.,
excessive rates, oppressive discrimina
tion against localities, persons or inter
ests, should be corrected bylaw, and
we demand Congressional und Legis
lative enuctmcnls thnt wi'l control
and regulate the railroad* of the coun
try, and give to the people fair rates of
transportation, anu protect them
against existing abuses.
lirxoliv'rf,
4th, 'That we heartily ap­
plaud the active measures of the late
Congress, in ferretting out and expos
ing corruption. We have seen with
profound regret, in the developments
made thereby, evidence of political
and ofth'ial corruption and the abuse
of responsible positions by men of ali
political parties to further personal
em's and we demand pure oHieial con
duct, and the punishment of unfaith
ful public men who having betrayed
the confidence freely extended to
them, shall not bo shielded from the
disgrace of their acts by any partisan
ship of ours, and we denounce all Cre
dit Mobilier transactions and all offi
cial misconduct of whatever form.
Jtusotvrrf,
5th, That, we believe that
whenever a person holding any posi
tion of trust given him by the people
is guilty of fraud or embezzlement-, he
should lie convicted and punished un
der the criminal laws of our land in
addition to the recovery from him or
hfs bondsmen of the amount so embez
zled.
Jiwolrcd,
flth, That the act of the
majority of the members "of the last
Congress, in passing what is known as
the back-pay steal, l.y which they vo
ted into their pockets thousands of
dollars which did not belong to them,
as well as tho act of those who voted
against tbe same and yet received the
money, is most llugruntly improper
and infamous, and should secure the
political condemnation of all who
were party to it and we demand that
the provisions of the said act by which
the salaries were increased shall be
promptly and unconditionally re
pealed.
ltwived, 7th, That we sympathize
with every movement to secure for
Agriculture and Labor their due influ
ence, interests and
rights,
and the lte-
publieati party will be their ally in
every just effort to attain that end.
Itrxoli rf. Sth, That we are desirous
of political reform and for honesty,
economy and purity in all ofllcial ad
ministration that toBccure this is the
duty of every citizen that to this
end every good man should feel bound
to participate in politics, and to make
an end to bad men forcing their elec
tion by securing a party nomination,
we declare it the duty of every Re
publican to oppose the election of a
bad and incompetent candidate,
whether he be a candidate upon our
own Of Upon any other ticket.
