The Carson Free Lance says: The Sen atorial fight baa settled down to an issue between Stewart and Fair. . Stewart i the only aggressive candidate for the office. Powning, Daggett and Wren may he candidates for the United States Scua. torship, but If so their inaction fails to challenge any admiration. It ia under food that the legislative tickets in the various counties ara unpledged, yet thry will naturally favor that candidate who makes it possible for the Republican party to win in the impending political struggle. Stewart is making a masterly campaign, a campaign that challenges the admiration of bis political enemies, As yet Fair is hid away somewhere on Mont gomery street, iu Sati Francisco. Kven should ha come to Nevada with his golden shekels to carry the election by storm we opine that he would tifld Stewart's castle iniprcgrmblc. .

The Fepoblicatis of Nevada, ia con vention, assembled, reaffirm their unfal tering loyalty to the principles of the party as enumerated in their national platform, from Lincoln to Blaine. We believe ttiit liberty is the inalienable right of every man, whatever his race or color, sou in tue equality of every man before the law, with tbe unreMricted riiL'ht of every citizen to cant his vote for whomsoever he chooeea, with the as surance that it wilt be counted a cast The preservation of the Union and free government are now recorded in history as the work ml the Republican party. Union, liberty, equality and a protective tariff have laigely contributed of making b0.0u0.000 ot people the best fed, toe best clothed, the happiest, the most in telligent and powerful that ever existed on earth, i be elevation of labor by the abolition of slavery aod the utter repu diation of caste and aristocracy by the Republican party haa opened to free men and free labor .jivery acre of Und within the jurisdiction of the United States, and has enabled tbe toiling millions of the North and of the South to associate i in one common brotherhood for the pro-! tection of thtir rights and the advance-! ment of their iuttllectuel and material j prosperity. We arraign the iemocratic adminis tration of 1'reaident Cleveland for hiring failed to keep the pledges on which it ! came into power. It promised economy j and retrenchment, and has been must i extravagant in expenditures and ap-1 proprtattons, which, for the current year, ! largely exceed the abundant revenues of ! the government. It promised to reduce the surplus in the Treasury, but rovers i ing the rule of previous Administrations, 1 has permitted such surplus to lie idle and acumulate to the injury of the busi-! cess oi tbe country, and has refused to approve of the action ot a large majority of both Houses of Congress directing that ouch surplus be applied in payment of the interest-bearing debt of tbe country. : It promised to care tor and give atten tion to the disabled soldiers and sailors of the late war, and haa treated with contemptuous veto every pension bill against which it could find any shadow oi technical objection. It promised to protect the person and property of citi aens both at home and abroad, and to maintain tnc dignity and honor of the nation, yet in its relation with Ureat Britain it has shown itself unwilling to give protection to either person or prop erty, ana tiaa permitted our nag to oe insulted, without proper protest, almoat in sight of our shores, w hile by hasty and unseemly action it haa unnecessarily jeopardized our friendly relations with tbe Mexican Republic, and made our nation ridiculous in tue eyes ot tbe world. Ita evasion of civil service re torm, to which its leading representatives are pledged, have been bold, insolent and lawless. It has shown itself no friend to Nevada, because, among its first acts of administration, it closed the Uuited States Mint in Carson City, in utter violation or the law, to the great detriment of every miner and silver producer in this State in particular, and of the public in general. It baa seriously impaired our mail facilities, without snauow ot just excuse. It haa outraged the express w ill of Congress, and dented to this people their rights by its unexplained and con tiuued refusal to execute tbe law for the erection of a Government building in tbe capital of this State. It has used the entire power of the Administration to destroy silver as money, and by a refusal to execute the law and pay out silver for Government dues haa kept the metal out ot circulation, ana by various devices it liss reduced trio pnee ot silver since tnc inauguration of 1'reaident Cleveland more than htteon per cent. It nas closed many of our silver mines, and thrown thousanda of honest laborers out of employment. ill. We favor a tar ill upon the imported products of low priced foreign labor, so as to protect the interests ot American wage-workers, and for the development of American industries. We demand in behalf of our mining interests the main tonanoe ot the present tarirl on lead, borax, soda and other mineral produc tions, and in behalf of our wool-growing interests, a restoration ot the wool term of 18fJ7. and wa denounce the recent at tempt of the Democratic majority in the national House ot Representatives to pass the Morrison bill reducing the tariff on the products of our mines aod placing ! wool ou tne tree list. IV. We believe m American soil for Amer ican citizens, and are opposed to non-resi dent aliens becoming landowners. The Kuuiie domain should be reserved as omesteads for actual settlers, and the accumulation of large tracts or bodies of land in the bands ot corporations or in dividuals shoul be discouraged, and in the case of land grants to railroad cor porations where the corporations have failed to comply with tbe conditions of the grants, the land should be forfeited to the General Government, aod held for the benefit of actual settlers. V. We favor the intelligent organization of tabor for such worthy purposes as mu tual education and for the protection of their interests in all things relating to their welfare and to the industrial wel fare of the country, and wc favor the enactment of State and National laws orovidinu for the settlement of contro versies between employers and employes orby methods of voluntary arbitration or by the establishment ot courts oi con cialitinn, whieh will avoid the waste. loss and ill-feeling resulting from strikes and Inck-outi, and the usual expense of litigation. VI We denounce the action of the Demo cratic House of Representatives at its latt session in atriaing from the bill to compensate the ci usees of this State for tosses fttstained Os toe Induus war of 1&60, all claims for anpetiea tarnished for the aupprocsion of Indian hoatiliticc, and also for services rendered during that memorable straggle ia which the Uvea of a large nam hex of oar taoat respected citizens were sacrificed.
