feeling profoundly grateful for the res

American citizens, to adopt such mea
sures as in our judgment will most cer
taioly tend to perpetuate our plorious
Union of States and with the bless

sc happily restored, hereby adopt the
following platform of principles.
1. We are in favor of the Monroe

frage or of the equality of the white
and black races.

ficiently know the sentiment of the peo

ent to refer this matter to the different
county conventions to take such aotioi:8
the matter as by them is deemed
proper and to instruct their Senators,
and Representatives according.
6 We are in favor of the brave
soldiers and marines who have faithful
ly served their country, in the arm y
and navy of the United States, and es
pecially crippled or disabled soldiers
having the preference for all offices of
profit, honor or trU3t, either by appoint

Convention held at Des Hioes Aug. 211869•
1. That wc heartily rejoice
in the suppression of the great
rebel lion, and the preservation
of the Union, and give unfeigned
thanks to Almighty God for the
restoration of peace.
I« order that this peaco
may be permanent, and its ef
fects speedily and widely felt,
we believe it is the duty of every
patriot to sustain cordially th5
present policy of President John
son in reconstructing the States
recently in rebellion.
3. That the establishment of
a monarchy on the soil of thi»
continent is in direct defiance olf,
tlie Monroe doctrine—a doctrine
accepted and recognized by all
true American citizens and it is
the tiuty of the government of the
United States to see that the peo
ple of Mexico are freed from the
suppression of foreign bayonets,
and the Republic restored,
4. That we favor rigid econo
my in the National and State ex

reduction of the numberless
horde of useless office holders
who feed like locusts on the hard
