TUB PLATFOKM. The Beputillcana ot tbe State of K insas, now assembled in a convention compos :1 of more thin 600 d-lrsratea. eacb eountj be ing represented by duly accredited mem bers, deelaie lhair continued adherence to the cardinal principles of tbe National Re publican parry; express their udmiralion and gratitude for ita past services and re- : cord their conviction that In lis future ad min Istratit n c.l public i 0alis. it will quickly responu to every demand of the people and guided by ibe ligut of experience Itslrsj's a tton will be dictated by a thoughtful -regard for the brat interests of the whole people of this Nation. Th- Kepubl can party was born of a great public necessit.-. lt early youth n spent In succrssiul oppneitlon to tbe extension of slavery. It c ussaenosd Its a-loilou legisla tive career by tbe passage of tbe Homestead at l, the most bra, flclal law in Its results ever framed by the American Congress. It maintained National supremacy . an I pre served Natl rial nnitv against a great rebel lion at botue and threatened interference from a -read, throug'i four yerof the most colossal warfare re rde 1 la history. By ita guiding encrg ei a gigantic rebel lion was suppressed, an Indestructible anion of States perpetuated aad tbe an ' premacy f tbe Union ofrr th i states com. posing it loreTcr established Thrcngh Its efforts slavery went doss In the ruins of the t otbrrn Confederacy. Asl ive r ee was emancipated and gu raaleed ail the rights of American citis -nship. It embodied tbe pollt.cal truths enumerated la the Declara tion of Indeorne-ence In constitutional pro-fi-tons and Congress oaal enactments. It has extended our National domain by the argutsltio-i of Alaska and liu added to the Union tbe magninceut Etatee of Kansas. West Virginia, Kevada, Kebraaka. Colorado. North Itakota, Eoath Dakot-. Washington, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. It l as maintained tbe public credit In peace aad war. has largely-de- ereai ed tbe saumuu public debt created by the war and protected the Issue ox greenbseks treat ndidaj repudiation. It has protected our Infant Industries, as sisted material development and Improved the public aervice.- Tbe legislation of the State of Kansas Is more efficient Id the pro tection of tbe rights and more favorable to the interests of the agricultural and labor ing rlaasea than that of any other State in the Union. . The honae and lot of the laborer and the farm of the agriculturist are exempt from forced sale. The school books, library, pictures, musical instruments, all tbe wear ing apparel ot the families, the household furniture, the meat groceries, vegetab ea and fuel, the boras, cow and alt the neces sary tools of both are not subject to execu tion or attachment. The earnings of a la borer necessary to support of bis family re protected from creditors. A span of horses, two cows, ten hogs, twenty sheep and liia farming utensils are reserved to the use of the farmer against all forced process of the law. The exemption from all taxa tion of $200 of personal property resu.ta en tirely to the benefit of tbe poor man. Provision is made by law whereby ra'l road contractors have to give bond for tbe payment of the laborer. Every person per forming work it furnishing material tor the construction of houses are assured payment under the provisions ft a beneficent me chanics' lien law. All laborers mutt be paid in lawful money of tbe United States and no one is compelled tor. coive a chet k, draft or Older on a store. Btrlngeut. enao'menti are made for the protection of the l.ealth and life of those engaged In coal mining. Tbe railroad com panies ar j made liable for damages to aa employe occasioned by the negligence of Its agents or other employes, lhe earning of a laborer arj protected against garnish ment. Arbitration between tbe laborer and employer Is provided for. The rights ot apprentices are carefully guarded. Provision Is made for the organization of co-operative societies whereby they enjoy all the rights, privileges and powers that are conferred on other corporations. This liberal legist ition ailed by the ab sence of the open suloon and stimulated by a magninceut system of common schools is the primary cause ot our rapid settlement and most marvelous material development. The Berubl can part has had uninter rupted control of the legislation of this State ever since its a.liii sion into tho Union, and these laws leim n-traie its speedy response to evt-ry worthy demand made for the pro tection of the rights of tb people. We are in favor of tho prii.ciple of protec tion as expounded by that gieat leader of Kepubl lean thought and policy, Hon. James G. Blaine, and its enforcement to the extent of giving the Amerioan citizen an advantage over the foreign producer, thus enabling him to maintain his industry and to make such a fair protit as will induce others to embark in tho same bus.nesB, be lieving such a policy increases the wages of labor, creates a go; d home market and re sults to tbe benefit of all classes. We want the same degree of protection to be given agricultural products tbat is extended to all other int rests. Tbco miinerciul and indus trial interests demand a tariff whose maxi mum will not retard the growt i of foreign trade or unnaturally stimulate prices at home, and whoae minimum will afford Ample protection to every legitimate industry. A tariff beyond such a maximum Is legi-lation In the Interest of a favored few, while a tariff below such a minimum is legislation against labor. We believe It to be the highest dictate of the commercial policy of this country to cultivate tuo most Intimate as well as tbe most extended, commercial relations with our sister republics of the two American continents, and that it would be wise and expedient so to adjust our tariff laws as to promote this end, and at the same time to adopt such a legis ative policy as will com pel all countries that have exercised a de termined discrimination against American products to cease such hosMllty. The State of Kansas by reason of its geographical po sition and the character of its products Is most tuTombly situated for the establish ment -f a lan;u and remunerative trade witb the neighbor ng republic ot Mexico, and wc favor tbe enactment of laws for fos tering and encouraging tbe interchange of tho products of the two countries. The prMCtlcnl operation of the Silver act now In force, recently passed by a Repub lican maj -rity. and opp. sed t;y a Demo cratic ti-iuorliy in both houses of Congress, Is rapidly in ruasing the value of silver and is a good st p in tho rittht direction, but we, the Republicans of Kansas, dumsnd free coinage of silvor, a measure strongly op pose.

A law applying :o every part of the coun try, protecting tbe freedom and purity of tbe ballet box, si curing Congressional rep reeentation b-sed upon tho nc'.ual vote cast. is Imperatively lt-raan!ed in tbe Int" r.-st of humanity and for tue re rvatl in of Amer lean liberty, anO we demand Congressional legislation to tbe en 1 ti.ut every honest vo:e may be polled and every honest ballot counted. While the Disability Periston b'll recently passed by cougross is the n:o t liberal and beneficial nioaurj of tho kind ever adopted by any Nation, yet wo are lit favor of tbe passage ft a S.-t vice Tension law, believing .that by such means a groater deieree of jus tlce can be rendered tho lien.lo men who preserved the life and unity of tbe Nation. We demand the passage of laws prohibit inft alien ownership of large bodies of land. Vongress should maku immediate provi sion to encourage and aid the irrigat'on of the great body of arid lands until the brave settlers who have sought homes there may fully d.vel.-p a part of our country so full of latent wealth.

STANDARD OIL PROFITS. The Volume of Business Transacted By America's Greediest Monopoly. A correspondent of the Philadelphia Press sums up an interesting article on the Standard Oil magnates, as follows: "The amount of business in dollars transacted each day by the Standard Trust and its several dependencies can only be approximated, but some idea may be gained from the following facts: The present crude production averages in the neighborhood of 65,000 barrels day, about eighty -five percent of which is handled and ultimately bought by the Standard; the price of oil to-day, ex clusive of pipeage, ranges from 83 cents a barrel on Bradford oil to SI and SI. 05 on that from tbe middle and lower fields, or an averages of about 93 cents a barrel. Ibis entails a daily expend iture for crude material alone of about 62,000. Tbe daily shipments at present are nearly on a level with the runs from the wells, and these shipments fairly represent the amcunt of oil reQned and sold. 'The price of refined oil in barrels at wholesale ranges in round numbers, in eluding the packages, from 3.75 to $5.50 or 86 a barrel for the grades ordinarily used. A fair averago is 94 a barrel; when the Trust sells to the consumer through its own agencies, -the pr ce is of course much higher, but even at the figures named, and deducting the per centage of lubricating oils and naph tbas, or about twenty-live percent, the refining trade alone approximates to 8180,000 a day. The profit on lubricat ing oils and naphthas are much higher. and it is safe to say that the business in these branches is close to 81 10,000 a day. Added to these figures are the pipeage charges of K) cents a barrel on over 60.000 barrels, a total of 813,000; the storage charges on oil in tanks is be tween 89,000 and 810.000; tbo pipeage on oil to the seaboard and to Cleveland and Pittsburgh, which can not well be deter mined in amount, but is not far from 825,000, and tbe business in tbe Lima field, wbich is in the neighborhood of at least 850,00a Tbe total amount of business transacted each day by tbe Standard, including Sundays, is there fore, very close to 8400,000, or 8146,000- 000 during tbe year. "Is this business profitable? "An answer may be found in the 8130,- 000.000 owned by John D. Rock feller and in the vast .fortunes of his associates. A conservative estimate of tbe individ ual wealth of tbe Standard magnates. of the present value of its various refin ing p'anta, pipe lines, tanks, and real property, places the total at 8750,000,000 all realized in about twenty-six years from an original cash capital ot 875,000, and by tbe use of brains, manipulation -with all that the term Implies and a surrender of self and tber things to the one consideration of wealth and the means of obtaining it" - Toung Doctor "Yes, sir, I came West just because I heard there was scarcity of good physicians here.

They want a medicine that is safe and one that is sure. Well, there is one remedy that, while being perfectly harmless, has never failed and never will fail to completely cure chills and fever, and that remedy is Smith's Tonio Syrup. It is made by Dr. John Bull, of Louisville, Ky. , and is as sure to cure chills and fever as daylight is to follow darkness. In the malarial season it is an excellent remedy to have handy. A single dose will check a cold and allay feverish symptoms. Every intelligent family should keep it in their household and use it aa a prevent iv of colds and malaria, as well as a quick cure.
