'The platformnl of principles enllnnci

whllesomile anrd patriotic dllclruent,
andI touches upon every vital subject

W\e declare our renewed and in
creased allegiance and devotion to
the Iriinciples of pirotection to Amer
ican labor to the end that the hIotne
market may lie preserved for its pro
ducts, that the American standard of
wages may be mnaintained, and that
our workingmeii n may so share in tile
fruits of their toil as to be safe and
worthyl depositories of the privileges

We denounce the present tariff
law passed by the prisent demriocratic
conlgriess Is a monstrocity that can
be reconciled to i. principlle of econ
omic science aniid can lead to no con
sequence but disaster. We condemn
especially the ruin which it inflicts
uponl the wool-growing industry, the
denial of adequate protect ion to bar
lv :11d lead, and the sect1ional spirit
swhich it displays ill its assault upon
northern and weslterninterests.
We espleciaily denounce the hostile
atllitude of the democratic palrty to
warildythe wool interest of the United
States whereby one of the pirincipal
interests of Montana lhas been ruined
and l lose engaged in it bankrulpted
b tllhe depreciation ill the value of
all their prolperty and lproducts.to tshe
extenit of miore tlhan i.ne-half, and
tihe consequent loss to the state of
millions of dollars.
We alprove of the .iolicy of reci
roc ity wvhicli had its origin in the
peniuslof James G. Blaine, and its
fruition in the enlargemenrt of for
eign imarkets for the products of our
industries and the establishlnent of

W1'e invite attention to the contrast
be;:tween tlhe content and the pros

iiThat we deniounce the present
detniocraitic admninistration as utterlv
inconlpetent to coinduct the affairs of

has closed our silver mines, ruined
our wool growsrs, injured our lead
mines, paralyvzed our manufacturing
industries, destrcoyed the marklets of
our farmers, thirosnt millions of men
out of emplouyment, and brought the
country to the verge of financial luin:li: -
Thatl we denounce the Wilson billk
just enacted by the democratic con
gress,as nmakeshlift legislation, franmed
at thle dictuation and in the interests
of trusts aind foreign mIanufacturers; t
That we reaflirm our faith and be
lief in the pirinciple of protection to
American industries and labor as ad- i
vocated by the republican party:
That we are emphatically and un- i
equivocally in favor of the free and U
unlimited coinage of silver at the r
ratio of 1l( to 1, and we pledge our F
candidates for the legislature, if
elected, to vote for no candidate for
United States senator who is not
known to be in favor of this prop)osi
tion and who will not work for it at
all times regardless of the position of
other members of his party in any
other section of the nation;:
Th'llat we denounce aniid condemn as
ntterly unworthy of confidence and
respect those menmbers of the Iegis
Slativ e assembly whose conduct; justi
lies the belief prevalent in the minds
of the people that bribery and cor
ruption were resorted to ini order to
inllueince votes in the last senatorial
election. And especially do we de
ilounce a nd reipuldiate those traitors
of our own party who proved false to
the trust reposed in iinem, and who
have earned the scorn and contempt
of all loyal irepublicans, by voting for
a democrat. who has ever been firlst
and foremost in opposition to repub
lican principles;
T'hat we Iheartil endorse the course
of Governor Rhicka;rds in refusing to
call an extra session of Ilhe legisna
ture at the deimanid of the defeated
senatorial aspirants. believing that
it would be little short of infamous
to have aillorded a second opportunity
for the re-enactment of those dis
graceful scenes which marked the

That we takpe pleasure in endorsing
the loyal and effective services of our
United States senator, 'Thomas C.
IPower, and o ur conglressmlan,
Charles S. Ilarmtnin;
'.That we demand as a simple mat
ter of lj stice anid in the interest of
the fut ure harmony arnd success of
our party, that one of the United
States senators to be elected at the
next meeting of the legislature. shall
be selected from what is known as
the west side.
That we believe in a wise, and
economical administration of county
affairs and pledge our candidates to
so manage the business of Ravalli
county that each dollar expendled on
behalf of the county will render its
equivalent in benefit.
