It ha been a record of unparalled Incapacity, dis honor and disaater. In administrative management It has ruthlnaly sacrific ed Indlapenalble revenue, entailed an unceasing deficit, eked out ordinary current expenses with borrowed money, plied up the public debt by 22,0O0,OO0 In time of peace, forced an adverse bal ance of trade, to a perpetual menace hanging over the redemption fund, pawned American credit to alien syn dicate and reversed all the measure and results of successful Republican rule. In the broad effect of Its policy It haa precipitated panic, blighted In dustry and trade with prolonged d preaalon, closed factories, reduced work and wages, halted enterprise and crip pled American production while stimu lating foreign production for the Amer ican market. Every consideration of public aafety and Individual Interest demands that the government shall be rescued from the hands of those who have shown themselves Incapable of conducting It without disaster at borne and dishonor abroad, and shall he re stored to the party which for thirty years administered It with unequaled succeas and prosperity. A Protective Tarifl. We renew and emphasize our allegi ance to the policy of protection as tb bulwark of American Industrial Inde pendence and the foundation of Amer ican development and prosperity. This true American policy taxes foreign pro ducts and encourages home industry; It puts the burden of revenue on for eign goods, it secures the American market for the American producer; It upholds the American standard of wage for the American worklngman; It puts the factory by the side of the farm, and make the American fanner 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 Is Just, fair, and impartial, equally opposed to foreign control and domestic monopoly, to sectional dis crimination and individual favoritism. We denounce the present Democratic tariff as sectional, injurious to the pub lic credit and destructive to business enterprise. We demand such equitable tariff on foreign Imports which come Into competition with American pro duct as will not only furnish adequate revenue for the necessary expenses of the government, but will protect Amer ican labor from degradation to the wage level of other lands. We are not pledged to any particular schedules. The question of rates Is a practical question, to be governed by the condi tions 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 hint Republican administration waa a national calamity, and we demand their renewal and extension on such terms as will equalize our trade with other nations, remove the restrictions which now obstruct the sale of Amer ican product In the ports of oUier countries and secure the enlarged mar kets of our farms, forests and factories. 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 the necessaries of 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 Becures our own market fonourselves. Reciprocity builds up foreign trade and finds an outlet for our Burplus. Protection to Sugar Producers. 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 the American people use, and for which they pay other countries more than 1100.000,000 annually. Wool and Woolens. To all our products to those of the mine and the field, as well as to those of the shop 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 OP THE can policy of discriminating duties for the 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 yards, sailing under the Btars and Stripes, and manned, officered and owned by Americans may regain the carrying; of our foreign commerce. The Financial Issue. "The Republican party la 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 as gold. We are unalterably op posed to every measure calculated to de base our currency or Impair the credit of our country. We are, therefore, op poaed to the free coinage of silver, ex cept by International agreement with the leading commercial nations of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, and until such agreement can be obtained we bell-rre 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 measure 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 as beat calculat ed to secure the fulfillment of the pledges made to them In the dark days of the country's perlL We denounce the practice of the pension bureau so recklessly and unjustly carried on by the present administration, of reducing pensions and arbitrarily dropping name from the rolls, as deserving the severest condemnation of the American people. Foreign Relations. Our foreign policy should be at all times firm, vigorous and dignified, and all our Interest 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 permitetd 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 cltisen 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 Unuited 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 hemlspheie, 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 obllgationes, 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 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 contin ued enlargement of the navy and a complete system of harbor and coast defenses. ' Immigration laws, . For the protection of the quality' of our American citizenship and of the wages of our worklngmen against the 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 thoa who can neither read nor write. Civil Service. . The Civil Service law was placed on the statute book by the Republican party, which has alway sustained It. and w 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 the United State 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 uncivilised and barbarous practice, well known as lynching or killing of human beings, suspected or charged with crime, without process of law.
