whs call to the chair to permit Mr. McKlnley,
Chairman of the committee, to read the re
port, which was as follows:
Mr. McKinley, of Ohio, trotn the Committee
on Resolutions, then presented the following
report :
The Republicans of the T'nltod States, In
Na'ionnl Convention nssembled. renew their
allegiance to the principles upon which they
bave triumphed in six successive Presidential
elections. Hud coiiu-ratulate tho American
people on the attainment of so many results
In legislation and administration by which tho
Republican par.y has, alter saving the 1,'iiion,
done so much to render its Institutions Just,
equal and benellcent, the ateguari of liberty
and the embodiment of the best thought and
highest purposes of our citl.ens.
The Republican party nas gained its
strength by quick and faithful response to
the demairls of the people for the freedom
and equality of all men, tor a united Nation,
assuring tho rights of all citizens, for the
elevation of labor, for an honest currency,
for purity in legislation and for Integrity and
accountability in all departments of the Gov
' eminent, and it accepts anew the duty of
leading In the work of progress and reform.
We lament the death of President Garfield,
whoae sound statesmanship, long conspicuous
in Congress, gave promise of a strong ana
success ml Administration, a promise fuby
realized during tlio short period ot his oltice
as President of the United States. His dts-
tlngulshcd success In war and peaco had en
deared lilui 10 the hearts of the American
In ihe Administration of President Arthur
we recognize a wise, conservative and patri
otic policy under which the country has tioen
blessed with remarkable prosperity, and wo
believe his eminent services are entitled to

It is the Orst duty of a good Government to
protect the rights and promoto tho interests
of its own people. The largest diversity ot
Industry Is most productive of general
prosperity and of the comfort and Inde
pendence of tho people. Wo theielore
demand that the imposition of duties on for
eign imports shall be made not " lor revenuo
only," but that in raising tho requisite rev
enues for l he Government., such duties shall
be so levied as to afford security to our diver
allied industries, and protection to the rights
and waves of tho laborer, to the end that act
ive and intelligent labor, as well as capital,
may have its just reward, anil the laboring
man bis full share in the National piosperity.
Against the so-called economic system of
the Democratic party, which would dcrradn
ourlatxir to tho lorelgn standard, we enter
our earnest protest. Tho Democratic party
failed completely to relieve the peoplo of the
burden of unnecessary taxation by a wise re
duction of the surplus.
The Republican party places Itself to cor
rect the inequalities of tho tariff, and to re
duce tho surplus, not by the vicious and in
discriminate process of horizontal reduction,
but by such methods as will relieve the tax
paver wittiouf. Injuring tho labor or tne great
productive iutcrestsof tho country.
Wo recognize the importance of sheep hus
bandry In the United Suites, the serious de
pression which it is now experiencing and the
danger threatening its future prosperity, and
we. therefore, respect the demands or the
representatives of tnis Important agricultu
rai Interest, for a readjustment of duty upon
foreign w ol. In order that such industry snail
bave full and adequate protection.
Wh have aiways recommended the host
money known to the civilized world, and we
urge that efforts should be made to unite ab
commercial nations in the establishment of
an international standard which shall fix for
all the relative value of gold and silver coin
age. The regulation of commerce with foreign
nations and between the States is one ot the
most important prerogatives of the general
Ooverninent, and the Republican parly dis
tinctly announces its purpose to support such
legislation as will fully and eiliclently carrv
out the constitutional power of Congress over
Inter-state Commerce. The principle of the
public regulation of railway corporations is a
wis3 and salutary one for the protection of
all classes of the people, and we tavor legisla
tion that shall prevent unjust indiscrimina
tion and excessive charges for transportation
and that secure to the people and the rail
ways alike the fair and equal protection of
too laws.
We favor the establishment of a National
Bureau of Labor, the enforcement of the
Elgbt-bour law, a wise and Judicious system
of general education by adoquate appropria
tion from tne National revenues wherever the
same is needed. We behove that everywhere
the protection to a citizen of American birth
must be secure to citizens by American
adoption, and we favor the settlement of
National differences by international arbitra
tion. The Republican party, having Its birth in a
batgd or slave labor, and a desire that all
men may be truly free and equal, is unalter
ably opposed to placing our working-men in
conipotltioa with any form ot servile labor,
whether at home or abroad. In this spirit we
denounce the importation of contract labor,
whether from Europe or Asia, as an offenso
against the spirit of American institutions,
and we pledge ourselves to sustain the pres
ent law restricting Chinese immigration and
to prortoe such further legislation as is nec
essary to jarry out its purposes
rfelorm of the Civil Service auspiciously he-
Kn under Republican administration should
completed by the further extension or the
reformed system already established by law,
to a'l the grades of the service to which it is
applicable. The spirit and purpose of tne re
form should be observed in all executive ap
pointments, and all laws at variance with the
objects of existing reformed legislation
should be repealed, to the end that the dan
gers to free institutions which lurk in tbs
power of official patronage may be wisely and
electively avo ded.

publican party also pledges Itself to the re
peal of the limitation contained In the Areas
act of lsv, so that all invalid soldiers shall
share alike and their pensions begin with the
date of disability or dischargo, and not with

The Republican party favors a policy whlon
shall keep us from entangling alliances with
foreign nations, and which gives us the right
to expect that foreign nations snail refrain
from meddling In American affairs the poli
cy whicn seeks peace and can trado with all
powers, but especially with those of the West

We demand the restoration of our navy to

dent to o dices in the Territories should be
made from the bona-ndo citizens and reso
dents of the Territories wherein they are to
hfjutlveil. That it is tho duty of Congress to
enaot such laws as shall promptly and effectu
ally suppress the system of polygamy within
our territory, and divorce the political from
tho ecclesiastical power of the so-ca led Mor
mon Church, and that the law so enacted
should be rigidly enforced by the civil au
thorities if possible, and by the military if
need bo.
The people of the United States In thoir or
ganized capacity constitute a Nation and not
a mere confederacy of States. Tho National
Government is supreme within the sphere of
its Nationalduty, but the States have reserved
rights which should be faithfully maintained.
Each should bo guarded with jealous care, so
that the harmony of our system of govern
ment niAV bo preserved and tho Union kept
iuvioato. The perpetuity of our institutions
rests upon the maintenance of a free ballot,
an honest count and correct return. We
denounce the fraud and violence praeticod
by tho Democracy in Southern Mates, ny
which the will ot the oter is defeated, as
dangerous to tho preservation of free Institu
tions, and we solemnly arraign the Democrat
ic party as neing mo guuiy recipient or me
fruits of such fraud and violence. We ex
tend to the Republicans of the South, regard
less of their lormer party atn.latious, our
cordial sympathy, and pledge to them our
most earnest ctiorts to promote tno passage
of such legislation as will secure to every citi
zen, of whatever race and color, tho full and
complete recognition, possession and exercise
of all civil and political rlrhts.

While the roll was belngcalledon the fourth

exuberance of the vast audience whenever
the name of Blame was spoken. The very

ladies and all, and waved handkerchiefs and
hats and flags and umbrellas, while 'ho

After qulot had been somewhat restored
Mr. Burleigh, of Now Vork, moved that tho
nomination of Mr. Ulaino be made unani
mous. Tho motion was carried without a dis
senting voice, and was the occasion of anoth
er tumultuous sceno in tho ball, lasting for
some time.
The session was opened by a brief
prayer by Rev. Dr. O'Reilly, of Do
troit. Tho first business transacted was the
completion of tho National Committee by the
addition of members from States which had
not already reported. These were: Nebraska,
Church Howe: Kansas, Silas Whoeler, Jr.:
Florida, Jesse D. Cole New Mexico. Stephon
B. Elkins; District of Columbia, Colonel Perry
A motion was passed allowing State Central
Committees to select members of tho National
Committee in cases of vacancies. On motion
of Mr. Taylor, of Illinois, tho time was limited
to ten minutes in oieseiiunif the name or a
candidate for Vice-President, but no attention
was paid afterward to the reaoiutmu.
The next bnstneas taken up was lhal of
nominations for Vice-President. The roll of
Slates was proceeded with until Illinois was
reached before any response was given.
Then Senator Plumb, of Kansas, took the
stage to nominate John A. 1ogan. Ho re
ferred to tho platform adopted as an excel
lent one, and the nominee for President as
one who couJd defeat any Democrat
whether ho was a dead one or a live one. The
ticket, iio said, could be elected, no mutter
wlio was named tor tno second place.
Hut it was important to have a man who in
every way was tit lor Ihe first p ace. Logun
was Known iniougnout tne uuigtti ana
breadth of the land, and would add great
strength to the ticket, so that in doubtful dis
taicts the party would triumph and carry Into
Congress additional Representatives. Logan
was a "linesman, ana enjoyed we connnence
and adminition of all. He was a soldier, and
was Idolized by the million men still living
who participated in the late war. The namo
of Liaran was received by tho aodienco with
wild applause anil cheers.
J no nomination ot l.oiran was seconded by
Judge llouck, of Tennessee, wbo lauded him
very highly, declared thai his nomination
would be received witn delight uy tbe whole
country, and that the truth was that there
slioojd not be any other nomination. The
convention should join Tennessee In giving
him a unanimous vote. Logan s nomination
was also seconded by Mr. Thurston, of
Nehraska; Mr. l.eo, or t'ennsylt ania, Mr.
llorr. of Michigan: Mr. Dain-y tcoioredi.
of North Carolina; Dr. Arnold, of Georgia;
Mr. Bradley, ol Kentucky; Samuel M-o, of
South Carolina: Mr. Pettlbone, of Tennessee;
Morey, of I.ouisiua; B air. of Virginia: Robin
son, of ( Hilo, and one or two others. Most of
them laid great stress on tho popularity of
Loiran with the soldier element and witi. the
colored peoplo of the South.
Several times tbe motion to nominate Lo
gan by acclamation was made, but was
how led down to enable anxious delegates to
