Declaration of Principles
The Republicans of the L'nlted Blatea,
assembled by their representatives In
National Convention, appealing for th
popular and historical Justification of
their claims to the matchless achieve
ments of thirty years of Republican
rule, earnestly and confidently address
themselves to the awakened Intelli
gence, experience and conscience of
their countrymen In the following dec
laration of facts and principles:
For the. first time since the Civil
War the American people have wlt
nesaed the calamitous consequences of
full and unrestrained Democratic con
trol of the Government It has been
a record of unparalled Incapacity, dis
honor and disaster. 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
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
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
