In administrative management It haa ruthlessly sacrific ed Indlsperislble revenue, entailed an unceasing deficit, eked out ordinary current expenses with borrowed money, piled up the public debt by 12(2,000,000 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 dicates and reversed all the measures and results of successful Republican rule. In the broad effect of Ha policy It haa precipitated panic, 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 ican market. Every consideration of public safety and Individual Interest demanda that the government shall be rescued from the hands of those who have ahown themselves Incapable of conducting It without dlaaster at home and dishonor abroad, and shall he re stored to the party which for thirty yeara administered It with unequaled success and prosperity. A Protective Taril We renew and emphasize our allegi ance to the policy of protection aa th 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 wages for the American workingman; It puta the factory by the side of the farm, and makes the American farmer lesa 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 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 ducts aa 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 queatton, 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 last Republican administration waa a national calamity, and we demand their renewal and extension on such terms as will equalise our trade with other nations, remove the restrictions which now obstruct the sale ot Amer ican products In the ports of other 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, tree 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 domestlo Industry and trade and secures our own market for ourselves. Reciprocity builds up foreign trade and finds an outlet tor our surplus. Protection to Sugar Producers. We condemn the present administra tion tor 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 the American people use, and tor 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 aa to those of the shop and the factory to hemp to wool, the product of the great Indus try of sheep husbandry, aa 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 REPUBLICAN PARTY. can policy of discriminating duties for the up-bullding ot 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 tha Stars and Stripes, and manned, officered and owned by Americans 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 187; since then every dollar baa been as 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 posed 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 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 ot such laws aa best calculat ed to secure the fulfillment of the pledges made to them In the dark days of the country's pail. 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 American people. Foreign Relations. Our foreign policy should be at all time firm, vigorous and dignified, and all our interests in the western hemis phere carefully watched and guarded. The Hawaiian Islands ahould be con trolled by the United States and no for eign power should be permitetd to in terfere with them. The Nicaragua Canal ahould 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-need ed 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 cltlxens and American property must be absolutely protected at all haxards 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 hemisphere, but those possessions must not, on any pretext, be extended. We hopefully look forward to the eventual withdrawal ot the European powers from this hemisphere, and the ultimate union ot 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 herolo battle of the Cu ban patriots against cruelty and op pression, and our best hopes go out for the full success ot 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 cltlxens or to comply with Ita 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 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 ot the navy and a complete system of harbor and coast defenses. Immigration Laws. For the protection of the equality of our American cltlxenahlp and of th wages of our workingmen against tha fatal competition of low-priced labor,' we demand that th Immigration laws be thoroughly enforced, and so extend ed as to exclude from entrance to th 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 declara tions that It shall be thoroughly and honestly enforced and extended wher ever practicable. Free Ballot. We demand that every citizen of th 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 uncivilised and barbarous) practices, well known as lynching or killing of 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 may arise be tween employer and employed engage! In interstate commerce. Free Homesteads. We believe In an Immediate retura to the tree homestead policy of th Republican party and urge the paasag by congress of the satisfactory tree 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 th interests of the people of the territo ries and of the United States. All th federal officers appointed for the terri tories shall be selected from bona fid residents thereof, and the right of self government shall be acorded as far aa practicable. Alaska Representation. We believe the citizens of Alaaka should have representation in the con gress ot the United States,to the end that needful legislation may be intelli gently enacted. Sumptuary Legislation. We sympathize with all wise and le gl titrate efforts to lessen and prevent the evils of Intemperance and promote morality. 1 Rights of Women. The Republican party is mindful ot the rights and interests of women. Pro tection of American industries include equal opportunities, equal pay for equal work and protection to the home. W 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 ot the Republi can party. By these principles we will abide and these principles we will put Into execution. We ask for them the considerate judgment of the American . people. Confident alike in the history of our great party and in the justice of our cause, we present our platform and our considerations. In the full assurance that the election will bring victory to the Republican party and prosperity to the people of the United States. Ask the ticket agent when you consult him about your eastern trip, to tell you about our service to the East and South. Ask him to tell you how much shorter in time as well as miles our line is to Omaha, Kansas City and St. Louis. Ask him, too, about our service between St Paul and Chicago. Get one of our folders from him and study the matter yourself. Do this and your ticket will sure ly read, as It surely should, via the Burling ton Route. A. C. SHELDON, O. A ; Portland, Oregon.
