Declaration of Principles
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
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
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.
Wa favor, restoring the early Ameri
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
- - .
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.
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
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-
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.
The Civil Service law was placer on
the statute book by the Republican
