It was only n few weeks nro. says a writer In the New Yolk Herald, that Ii-sitIIhsI the extraordinary roller steamboat that was born In the bruin f M llazlu. That boat has been launched, and successfully, too, at St. Uenls. And now comes Julius llluemel, an American, who has Invented a crack-a-Jack of craft that It, In ap pearance and all Its other arrange ments. To stand It on Its stern ptwt. or w here one ought to be, It resembles in some degree a lyre, or with the hull uppermost It Is not unlike a butcher's saw. When looked at from the bow one might Imagine It to be a clear. Havana wrapper and Connecticut filled with the lighted .end badly blown asunder through the Introduction of an explosive by some practical Joker. Its very dissimilarity to anything that now Hoots on the surface of wa ters that touch any Inhabited or known lands makes Mr. Bluemel's craft a thing of untiring novelty. It Is a diffi cult matter to describe a Hluemel ahlp when the Inventor Is not sitting at the writer's side, but after going over the ahlp on pnper I have come to the conclusion that my description Is the proper one. It would like to be present when It Is launched. I believe the wu- lrIIr--r 11 you want a .me reiiel lo pa. in in the back, Mdc, cnei. i l.mbs, use an Allcdck's BKAR IN Mini -Not one of Lav-?

Porous Plaster the hosi ( coun:r:'e:'.s and un vv Declaration of Principles OF TUB REPUBLICAN Tha Itepubllcana of tha United Btafee, aaaombled by their reprea;ntatlvea In National Convention, appealing for the popular and hletorlca! juatlflcatlon of their claima to the matchleee achleva inenta of thirty yeara of Republican rule, earnestly and conrtilently addrcaa themaelvea to the awakened Intelli gence, experience and cnneclence of their countrymen In the following dec laration of facta and prlnclplea: For tha flrat time ilnce the Civil War the American people have wlt neaacd the calamltout conaequencea of full ar.d unreetralned Imocratlc con trol of the Oovernment. It haa been a record of unparalled Incapacity, dla honor and dlaaater. In administrative management It haa ruthkaaly aacrlfle ed Indlapenalble revenue, entailed an unceaalng deficit, eked out ordinary current expense with Ijorrowed money, piled up the public debt by 1.2.000.000 hanging over the redemption fund, pawned American credit to alien syn dicates and reversed all the measures and results of successful Republican rule. In the broad effect of Ita policy It haa precipitated panic, blighted In dustry and trade with prolonged de pression, closed factories, reduced work and wages, halted enterprise and crlp- i pled American production while stlmu I latlng foreign production for the Amer ! lean market. Every consideration ot ' public safety and Individual Interest ! demands that the government ahall be rescued from the hand of those who have shown themselves Incapable of conducting It without disaster at home and dishonor abroad, and shall he re stored to the party which for thirty years administered It with unequaled success and prosperity. A Protective Tariff. We renew and emphasize our alleirl anca to tha policy of protection aa tha bulwark of American Industrial Inde pendence) and the foundation of Amer ican development and prosperity. This true American policy tain foreign pro duct, and encourage, home Industry; It put. the burden of revenue on for eign goods, it secures the American market for the American producer; It upholda the American standard ot wagea for the American worklngman; It puta the factory by the aide ot the farm, and make the American farmer less dependent on foreign demand and price; It diffuses general thrift and founds the strength of all on the strength of each. In Its reasonable ap plication It la just, fair, and Impartial. equally opposed to foreign control and j domestic monopoly, to sectional dia- crimination and Individual favoritism. I We denounce tha present Democratic , tariff aa sectional. Injurious to the pub I lie credit and destructive to business enterprise. We demand such equitable I tariff on foreign Imports which come ; Into competition with American pro I ducts as will not only furnish adequate j revenue iw cue iicrj expenses oi ! tne government, but will protect Amer- r -or from degTedatlon to the ', W level ' er "mas. we are not ', pledged to any particular schedules. i The question or rates is a practical question, to oe governed Dy the condl- t tlons of the time and production; the ruling and uncompromising principle Is the protection and development of American labor and Industry. The country demands a right settlement and then It wants rest. Reciprocity With Other Nations. We believe the repeal of the reci procity arrangements negotiated by the hiit Republican administration waa a ! national calamity, and we demand ' their renewal and extension on such ! terms as will equalize our trade with 1 other nations, remove the restrictions measures of Republican policy, and go ' hand In hand. Democratic rule has reekJeAnlv striielr (town hnrh ntiit hrh J ' must be. re-established. Protection for what we produce, free admission for the necessaries ot life which we don't produce, reciprocal agreements of mu tual Interest which gain open markets for us in return for our open market to others. Protection builds up domestic industry and trade and secures our own market for ourselves. Reciprocity builds up foreign trade and finds an outlet for our surplus. Protection to Sugar Producers. We condemn the present adminlstra t tlon for not keeping faith with the sugar producers ot this country. The Republican party favors such protec tion as will lead to the production on American soil of all the sugar tha American people use, and for which they pay other countries more than J10O.0O0.0O0 annually. Wool and Woolens. To all our products to those of the mine and the field, as well as to those of the shop and the factory to hemp to wool, the product ot 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. Wa favor, restoring the early Ameri PARTY. can policy of discriminating duties for tht up-bulldlng of our merchant marine and the protection of our shipping In the foreign carrying trade, so that American ships the product of Amer ican labor, employed In American ship yard., .ailing under the Star, and Strip., and manned, officered and owned by Americana may regain the carrying of our foreign commerce. The Financial Issue. "The Republican party Is unreserv edly for sound money. It caused the enactment of the law providing for the resumption of specie payments In 1879; since then every dollar has been aa good aa gold. We are unalterably op posed to every measure calculated to de bate our currency or Impair the credit of our country. We are, therefore, op posed to the free coinage of silver, ex cept by International agreement with the leading commercial natlona of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, and until such agreement can be obtained we believe the existing gold standard must be preserved. All our silver and paper currency now In circulation must be maintained at a parity with gold, and we favor all measures designed to maintain Inviola ble the obligations of the United States, and all our money, whether coin or paper, at the present standard, the standard of the most enlightened na tions of the earth." Pensions for Veterans. The veterans of the Union armies 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 aa best calculat ed 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 tht present administration, of reducing pensions and arbitrarily dropping names from the rolls, aa deserving the severest condemnation ot the American people. - - . Foreign Relations. Our foreign policy should be at all times firm, vigorous- and dignified, and all our Interests in the western hemis phere carefully watched and guarded. The Hawaiian Islands should be con trolled by the United States and no for eign power should be permltetd to In terfere with them. The Nicaragua Canal should be built, owned and op erated by the United States, and by the purchase of the Danish Islands we should secure a proper and much-needed naval station In the West Indies. Armenian Massacres. The massacres In Armenia 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 dangers and American property de stroyed. There and everywhere Amer ican citizens and American property must be absolutely protected at all hazards and at any cost Monroe Docirine. We reassert the Monroe doctrine In Its full extent and reaffirm the right of the Unulted States to give the doctrine effect by responding to the appeals of any American state for friendly Inter vention in case of European encroach ment We have not Interfered, and shall not interfere, with the existing possessions of any European power in this hemlsphete, but those possessions must not, on any pretext, be extended. We hopefully look forward to the eventual withdrawal of the European powers from this hemisphere, and the ultimate union of all the English speaking part of the continent by the free consent of Its Inhabitants. Independence of Cuba. From the hour of achieving their own Independence the people of the United States have regarded with sympathy the struggles of other American peoples to free themselves from European dom ination. We watch with deep and abid ing Interest the heroic battle of the Cu ban patriots against cruelty and op pression, and our best hopes go out for the full success of their determined con test for liberty. The government of Spain, having lost control of Cuba and being unable to protect the property or lives of resi dent American citizens or to comply with Its treaty obllgatlones, 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 Island. Enlargement of the Navy. The peace and security of the repub llo and the maintenance ot Its rightful Influence among the nations of th earth demand a naval power commen surate with its position and responsi bility. We therefore favor the contin ued enlargement of the navy and a complete system of harbor and aev- coast defenses. Immigration Laws. For the protection of the equality of our American citizenship and of the) wages of our worklngmen against tha fatal competition of low-priced labor, we demand that the Immigration law be thoroughly enforced, and so extend ed aa to exclude from entrance to the) United State, those who can neither read nor write. Civil Service. The Civil Service law was placer on the statute book by the Republican party, which has always sustained It. and we renew our repeated declara tions that It shall be thoroughly and honestly enforced and extended wher ever practicable. Free Ballot. We demand that every citizen of tha United States shall be allowed to cast one free and unrestricted ballot, and that such ballot shall be counted and returned as cast lynching Condemned. We proclaim our unqualified condem nation of the uncivilized and barbarous practices, well known as lynching or killing ot human beings, suspected 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 mar arise- be tween employer and employed engaged In Interstate commerce. Free Homesteads. Wt believe In an Immediate return to the free homestead policy of tha Republican party and urge tha passage by congress ot the satisfactory fro homestead measure which has already passed the house and Is now pending In the senate. Admission of 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 the territo ries and of the United States. All the federal officers appointed for the terri tories shall be selected from bona Ada residents thereof, and the right of self government shall be acorded as far aa practicable. Alaska Representation. We believe the citizens of Alaska should have representation In the con gress of the United States.to the end that needful legislation may be Intelli gently enacted. Sumptnary Legislation. We sympathize with all wise and le gitimate efforts to lessen and prevent the evils ot Intemperance and promote morality. Rights of Women. The Republican party Is mindful ot the rights and Interests of women. Pro tection of American industries includes equal opportunities, equal pay for equal work and protection to the home. Wa favor the admission of women to wider spheres of usefulness, and welcome their co-operation in rescuing the coun try from Democratic and Populist mis management and misrule. Such are the principles and policies of the Republi can party. By these principles we will abide and these principles we will put into execution.
