The Repttbllcaus of the United States,
■assembled by their representatives in
Fnational convention,, appealing for the
' popular and historical justification of
their claims to the matchless athieve-
Ments of thirty jears of Republican
f rule, earnestly and confidently address
themselves to the awakened intelli
; gence, experience and conscience of
their countrymen in the following dec
.- laration of facts and principles.
For the first time since the civil war
; the American people have witnessed
the : calamitous consequences of full
J and unrestricted Democratic control of
the government. It has been . a record
of unparalleled incapacity, dishonor
and disaster. In administrative man
agement it Las ruthlessly sacrificed mr
, dispensable revenue, entailed an un
ceasing deficit, eked out ordinary cur
rent . expenses with borrowed - money,
piled up the public debt by $262,000,000
in time ; of peace, forced an adverse bal
; ance of trade, kept a perpetual menace
. hanging over the redemption fund,
pawned American credit/to alien syn
dicates,' and reversed all the measures
and results of successful Republican
*^>ft|le. In the broad effect of its policy
-"W* "^iirccipjlated pamt, blighted in
dustry and trade with prolonged de
pression, closed factories, reduced work
and wages, halted enterprise and crip-
: pled American production while stimu
lating foreign production for the Amer
v- ican market. Every consideration of
public safety and individual interest
demands that the government shall be
rescued from the hands of those who
have shown themselves incapable- to
conduct it without disaster at home and
dishonor abroad, and shall be restored
to the party which for thirty years ad
: ministered it with unequaled success
and prosperity, and in this connection
we heartily indorse the wisdom, pa
triotism and success of the administra
-■ tion of President Harrison.
TARIFF.
We renew and emphasize our alle
giance to the policy of protection as
the bulwark of American industrial
•". independence and the foundation of
American development and prosperity.
This true American policy taxes for
eign products and encourages home in
dustry; it puts the burden of revenue
on foreign goods; it secures the Amer
ican market for the American produc
er; it upholds the American standard
of wages for the American working
man; it puts the factory by the side of
the farm, and makes the American
farmer less dependent on foreign de
mand and price; it diffuses general
thrift and founds the strength of all on
the strength of each. In its reasonable
application it is just, fair and impartial,
equally opposed to foreign control and.
domestic monopoly,. to sectional dis
crimination and individual favoritism.
We j denounce the Democratic tariff
as sectional, injurious to the public
credit and destructive to business en
terprise. We demand such an equit
able tariff on foreign imports which
come in competition with American
products as will not only furnish ade
quate revenue for the necessary ex
penses of the government, but will pro
tect American labor from degradation
to the wage level of other lands. We
are not pledged to any particular sche
dules. The question of rates is a prac
tical question, to be governed by the
conditions of the time and of produc
tion; the ruling and uncompromising
principle is the protection and develop
ment of American labor and industry.
The country demands a right settle
ment and then it wants rest.
RECIPROCITY.
We believe the repeal of the reciproc
ity arrangements negotiated by the last
Republican administration was a na
tional calamity, and we demand their
renewal and extension on such terms
as will equalize our trade with other
nations, remove the restriction which
now obstruct the sale of American
'" products in the ports of other countries
and secure enlarged markets for the
THE REPUBLICi^W 1
products of our farms, forests and fac
tories.-
Protection and reciprocity are twin
measures of Republican policy and go
hand in hand. Democratic rule has
recklessly struck down both, and both
must be re-established.
Protection for what we produce, free
admission for necessaries of life which
we do not produce; reciprocal agree
ments of mutual interest which gain
open markets for us in return for open
markets to others. Protection to build
up domestic industry and trade that se
cures our own market for ourselves;
reciprocity builds up foreign trade and
finds an outlet for our surplus.
The Republican party is unreservedly
for sound money. It caused the enact
ment of the law providing for the re
sumption of specie payments in 1879;
since then every dollar has been as
good as gold.
We are unalterably opposed to every
measure calculated to debase our cur
rency or impair the credit of our coun
try. We are therefore opposed to the
free coinage of silver'exeepi by inter
national agreement with the leading
commercial nations of the world,
which we pledge^ ourselves to promote,
and until such agreement can be ob
tained, the existing gold standard mutt
be preserved. All our silver and paper
currency must be maintained at parity
with gold, and we favor all measures
designed to maintain inviolably the ob
ligations of the United States, and all
our money, whether coin or paper, at
the present standard, the standard of
the most enlightened nations of the
earth.
SUGAR.
We condemn the present administra
tion, for not keeping faith with the
sugar producers of this country. The
Republican party favors such protec
tion as will lead to the production on
American soil of all the sugar which
the American people use, and for
which they pay other countries more
than $100,000,000 annually.
WOOL AND WOOLENS.
To all our products —to those of the
mine and the field as well as to those
of the shoy and the factory—to hemp,
to wool, the product of the great indus
try of sheep husbandry, as well as to
the finished woolens of the mill—we
promise the most ample protection.
MERCHANT MARINE.
We favor restoring the early Ameri
can policy of discriminating duties for
the upbuilding of our merchant marine
and the protection of our shipping in
the foreign carrying trade, so that
American ships—the product of Ameri
can labor, employed in American ship
yards, sailing under the Stars and
Stripes, and manned, officered and
owned by Americans —may regain the
carrying of our foreign commerce.
PENSIONS.
The veterans of the Union army de
serve and should receive fair treatment
and generous recognition. Whenever
practicable they should be given the
preference in the matter of employ
ment, and they are entitled to the en
actment of such laws as are best cal
culated to secure the fulfillment of the
pledges made to them in the dark days
of the country's peril. We denounce
the practice of the pension bureau, so
recklessly and unjustly carried on by
the present administration, of reducing
pensions and arbitrarily dropping
names from the rolls as deserving the
severest condemnation of the Ameri
can people.
FOREIGN RELATIONS.
Our foreign policy should be at all
times firm, vigorous and dignified, and
all our interests in the Western hemi-
I sphere carefully watched and guarded.
i The Hawaiian Islands should be con
troled by the United States, and no for
eign power should be permitted to in
terfere with them; the Nicaragua
canal should be built, owned and oper-
I ated by the United States, and by pur
! chase of the Danish islands we should
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 1896.
SOUND "MONET
secure a proper and much-needed naval
station in the West Indies.
ARMENIAN MASSACRES.
The massacres of the Armenians have
aroused the deep sympathy and just
indignation of the American people,
and we believe that the United States
should exercise all the influence it can
properly exert to bring these atrocities
to an end. In Turkey American resi
dents have been exposed to the gravest
clangers and American property de
stroyed. There and everywhere Ameri
can citizens and American property
must be absolutely protected at all
hazards and at any cost.
MONROE DOCTRINE.
We reassert the Monroe doctrine in
its full extent, and reaffirm the
right of the United States to give the
doctrine effect by responding to the
appeals of any American state for
friendly intervention in case of Euro
pean encroachment. We have not in-
terfered and shall not interfere with
the existing possessions of any Euro
pean power in this hemisphere, but
those possessions must not, on any pre
text, be extended. We hopefully look
forward to the v eventual withdrawal of
the European powers from this hemi
sphere and to the ultimajjp union of all
English-speaking parts of the conti
nent by the free consent of its inhabi
tants.
CUBA.
From the hour of achieving their
own independence, the people of the
United States have regarded with sym
pathy the struggles of other American
peoples to free themselves from Euro
pean domination. We watch with deep
and abiding interest the heroic battle
of the Cuban patriots against cruelty
and oppression and our best hopes go
out for the full success of their deter
mined contest for liberty.
The government of Spain, haviug lost
control of Cuba, and being unable to
protect the property or lives of resident
American citizens, or to comply with
its treaty obligations, we believe that*
the government of the United States
should actively use its influence and
good offices to restore peace and give
independence to the isJand
' THE NAVY.
The peace and security of the repub
lic and the maintenance of its rightful
influence among the nations of the
earth, demand a naval power commen
surate with its position and responsi
bility. We, therefore, favor the con
tinued enlargement of the navy and a
complete system of harbor and sea
coast defenses.
FOREIGN IMM if; RATION.
For the protection of the quality of
our American citizenship and of the
wages of our working men against the
I fatal competition of low-priced labor,
we demand that the immigration laws
be thoroughly enforced and so extend
ed as to exclude from entrance to the
United States those who can neither
read nor write.
CIVIL SERVICE.
The civil service law was placed on
the statute book by the Republican
party, which has always sustained it,
and we renew our repeated declarations
that it shall be thoroughly and honest
ly enforced and extended wherever
practicable.
FREE BALLOT.
We demand that every citizen of the
United States shall be allowed to cast
one free and unrestricted ballot, and
that such ballot shall be counted and
returned as cast.
LYNCHING.
We proclaim our unqualified con
demnation of the uncivilized and bar
barous practice, well known as lynch
ing, or killing of human beings sus
pected or charged with crime, without
process of law.
NATIONAL ARBITRATION.
We favor the creation of a national
board of arbitration to settle and ad
just differences which may arise be
tween employers and employes engag
ed in interstate commerce.
HOMESTEADS.
We believe in an immediate return to
the free homestead policy of the Re
publican party, and urge the passage
by congress of the satisfactory free
homestead measure which has already
passed the house and is now pending
in the senate.
TERRITORIES.
We favor the admission of the re
maining territories at the earliest prac
ticable date, having due regard to the
interests of the people of th~ territories
and of the United States. All the Fed
eral officers appointed for the territor
ies should be selected from bona fide
residents thereof, and the right of self
government should be accorded as far
as practicable.

We believe the citizens of Alaska
should have representatoin in the con
gress of the United States, to the end

Convention Catches.
The auditor's job went begging or
went "fixed," one; probably the latter.
The defeat of Judge Langley and
Judge Humphries was the source of
much street talk the next day.
Jack Kahaley withdrew in favor of
Sheriff Van de Vanter. Poor "Johnny,"
nobody seemed to be his friend.
The old fight of two years ago over
county surveyor was renewed, and this
time a White man was nominated.
Col. J. H. McLaughlin made hundreds!
of % friends by withdrawing from the
shrievalty contest at the time he did.
Tie- electnjn of-fc&w - A ?^rp\v_£\J3u r*i
Leigh as chairman of the convention
proved a boomerang to Johnny Van
Horn.
John Van Horn got pretty angry over
Ms defeat and cussed the "niggers'" like
a madman the next day after the con
vention.
Mr. Layhue, for county superintend
ent, was without opposition, while the
fight from there down was a stem
winder.
The Fifth ward done up Fitzgerald,
trying to "tote" water on both shoul
ders. It is to be regretted that he was
not renominated.
The strange thing about the conven
tion was the unanimous selection of the
nominees for some of the most import
ant offices in the county.
Although the clerk's office pays a sal
ary of $3,000 per year, no one seemed
to want it except the nominee. Kind of
funny, to say the least.
Judge Humphries' defeat was caused
more by mismanagement than for want
of votes. Good generalship would have
made him an easy winner.
The Fourth of the Fourth did not
seem inclined to aid Walker. Now don't
look at the personnel of the precinct,
as it would seem strange.
Capt. Treen's friends were loyal to
him, but he did not have enough of
them. The mines, as predicted by The
Republican, stood by Atkinson to a
man.
Walker was nominated by work and
not by dictation. He succeeded because
his friends bent everything they did in
that direction. His friends worked as
a unit.
S. G. Meek came very near being the
unanimous choice from the First com
missioner's district for county commis
sioner. No more deserving nomination
was made than him.
The "big men" sometimes run things
with a high hand, but they made a
clean, clear miscarriage in landing their
man for sheriff. They got a sitting
down on that they will not soon forget.
"Nomination is not election, and
though a Republican, I and my friends
will not rest a moment until Judge
Osborn is defeated," came from a prom
inent Republican leader and heretofore
hardest worker.
Dr. Burdett was a good worker and
was pretty near right on all proposi
tions. The same can be said of John
Edward Hawkins. Both of them made
turns that landed their men, to the as
tonishmen of all.
The Sixth precinct of the Fifth ward,
with their six delegates working as a
unit, got more and accomplished more
