JK The republicans of Iowa in dele gate convention assembled, adopted the following declarations of principles and submitted the same to the voters as their platform: 1-—The republican party was born in the midst of the storm in the life of the nation hung in the balance. Its first president, the martyred Lincoln, kept the faith without faltering or wavering, and brought the ship of state to a safe port. The party has never halted for a moment in its fealty to the flag and to the principles of human liberty. Its leaders have been distinguished by their unselfishness, aud patriotic service to the nation. And this has been true since the days of Lincoln. We hereby consecrate all that we have to the winning of the world war. 2.—This is not the war of any party it is not the war of any section or class. It is the war of our nation. The burdens are being borne by all, with out regard to creed or party Or age or sex. It Is so great that we must pass on to our children the duty of paying much of the cost. We, as republicans, stand fully committed to the policy of treating the war and everything which relates thereto as the work of all the people, and we Invite, to our stand ard every patriot who believes that Americans should meet this world crisis in the broadest spirit of genu ine patriotism. Third—In this crisis of not only the life of the nation, tout of the world as well, there is one duty which rises hlch above every partisan considera tion and which should govern and control every citizen of the republic. That duty is to hold all that he has or is for the deliverance of the country and of mankind from the cruel, crim *v4 \S Vhedl: Fields will yield Canada now has a National Regis tration system very similar to that of the United States.

PLATFORM OF IOWA REPUBLICANS inal and atrocidus designs of the im perial government of Germany. No man should be elected to any high office, no matter what his party may be, un less he can fulfill this test in perfect measure. We can endure some degree of inefficiency, but we can tolerate no degree of disloyalty n.o degree of selfishness. We are fighting an out law among nations. Our enemy has neither honor or conscience nor civili zation. We are struggling not alone for our own institutions, but for humanity and decency among the people of the earth. We have sent a million of the bravest men who ever wore a uniform across the sea and we will soon have a million more.' The one supreme test is to '•"in the war, speedily if we can, but to win it. No party feeling must be permited to touch pur consecration to this sacred undertaking. Fourth—That the republican party, full of the spirit of 1770 and the desire for liberty and the perpetual union of 1861, sends greetings to all of our brave and valiant men in the army and naval service of the United States, and hereby express our pride in the men from Iowa that have joined the ser vice of the country, knowing that they are the bravest and most sacrificing men that any state or country can produce. Fifth—In connection with the after war problems, we advocate the pro tective tariff as a means of safeguard ing the welfare of the laboring men of this country, and protecting them against the flooding of the market or this country with the prouuets of I cheap labor of foreign lands. We advo Icate the protective tariff as a safe guard for the industries of this coun try, and as a means of making stable ALL CANADA NOW REGISTERED FOR INTENSE WAR EFFORT Thferh ing' Wer rn 0an ad a. more ?or uit his or her present occupation more important national work, and would he or she help in farm ing* Women especially were Ques tioned as to their home and domestic ties. ..
