When Mr Clarkson admits that
the hope of the republican party is in
carrying New York and adds it is
easy enough to get a candidate who
can do that he puts his partys
chances on a shaky foundation If

maintained up to next January they

which were adopted
We the Bemocrats of Dherry county in mass
convention assembled doreaflirai our allegiance
to the principles of the Democratic party as
fonnulattd by Jefferson and exemplified by the
illnatriouB lino of his successors in Democratic
leadership from Madison to Cleveland V
We Still denounce the Republican doctrine of
protection -as a fraud rdbbery of the great
majority of the American -people for th6 benefit
of the few WestiU adhere to and maintain the
Democratic doctrine of a tariff for revenue
only1 We believe the interests of the massea
of our population will bo best conserved by the
collection of suchtaxes as shall be limited to the
uecessitles of the government honestly and
economically administered
We express our faith in the time honored doc
trine of the Democratic partyas to international
trade rolations an interchange by which the
countries participating -shall enjoy reciprocal
advantages We denounce the sham reciprocity
scheme of the Republicans which Juggles with
the peoples desire for freer exchanges by pre
tending toe3tabllrfh closer relations while en
-acting profcttrttivr tariff taxes against tnose
-countries atthe world that stand ready to take
f our enure surplus oi proaucis in excnangeior
commodities which are necessaries and comforts
of life among our own people
Appreciating the condition oftthe public mind
with reference to the financial policy- of thi
country ana recognizing tne importance ei a
proper solution of this question we Unhesitat
ingly express our unalterable opposition to the
free and unlimited coinage of silver except by
international agreement and until agree
ment can be procured we favor the present
standard of value We denounce the action of
the Republican county convention in intention
ally omitting to state its views on this important
question as a repetition of the cowardly and dis
honest practices Of that party
tFinally we endorse the administration for its
excellent conduct of public affairs its vigorous
foreign policy and its unparallelled management
in maintaining the pnblic credit aginst foes
from without -and foes from within
