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.

efforts slavery went doss In the ruins of

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

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

Into Democratic administration led by ex-

We favor such other legislation as may he

of business.

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

preserved the life and unity of tbe Nation.
We demand the passage of laws prohibit

Vongress should maku immediate provi

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

We believe It lo bo the imperative duty of
Congress to muke a sufficient appropriation
of money, and by nil other necessary legis

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" -

Chills and Fvr.
When a person gets the chills and fever
they don't want to take medicine that does
them no good. They don't feel a bit like
doing such a fooU&b. thing. 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.
