Hea eaptalna who have heretofore re ceived all the praise for record-breaking Mrformance. are being dlnivgarded of late, and the honor are laid at the fi-t of the engineer of the rraft. The New York Tribune Bay.: In view of the fast st.-ajnlng. the nntural question arises. "What la the catiae? Why Is It that old and new vt-ssi'ls are outdoing their paat per formance?" The general conaenaua of opinion aeema to be that It haa been due to two raune. Improved "team work," a the football men aay, In engine room and fire room, and fa vorable weather. In the rae of the St. Paul'a voyage. both of three condition aerm to have been preeent In a high degree. Jamea Carnegie, the chief engineer of that record-breaker, la a Jovial and popular man, aa well aa a .killed engineer, and haa tha faculty of getting the utmnat poealbl nut of the .mall army of cngl nrera, firemen, coal paaeera and trim' mera under hi. command. "The matter of firing, Bald an ex perienced engineer, " haa bocome a iclenr. It abaorba the time and at tentlon of the engineer more than the running of hi. engine. I came over i.n the Ht. Uiuls on her laat trip, and Chief Knglneer Walla waa never Bern on deck or In the cabin, lie wa be low, attending to buslneaa strictly." A to the Bt. Paul's performance, Mr. Carnegie ald: "Our auccvaa waa due. Drat, to the manag'Hnent of our mag nificent ahlp; but, after that. In large part to the support I have received from every member of the engineering RtatT. They all worked with a will, and In perfect harmony. My acnlor first assistant, William C. Walla, who la brother of John Wall, chief engineer of the Bt. Loula. stayed up all night before she came off the dry dock, to he sure that the propeller wheela were et exactly right. Thl is typical of the work done by all throughout the voyage. The machinery worked per fectly, without a hitch or a slowdown, and developed no eccentricities what ever. We didn't have a .Ingle fireman luld off, and the average temperature of the flreroom waa only 95 degrees. Thla was due to the fine system of ventilation, and the fact that the air In the flreroom Is being continually changed by the auction of the battery of fans, which supply the forced draught Of course, men can do their bent work In pure air of that tempera ture. We have three shift of engineers and firemen, each of which has four hour on and eight hours off. There are six engineers and twenty-two fire men In each shift. I have arranged with the management for a system of bonuses for firemen and oilers, so thnf hey may feel an Interest In the work oil well aa the officers. We had favor able weather throughout, except In the fog of the last three days. That Inter fered with the fires to a certain ex tent." That the secret lies largely In the firing Is shown In the fact that the average coal consumption of the St. Paul on this trip was 315 tons a day, whereas the average on former voy ages has been 2!H) to 310, according to Mr. Cnrnegle's statements. If the amount of 310 tons a day be divided by 24, and then agnln by 20.SW), which was given as the average horse-power for the run, It will be seen that this enormous energy w is developed on a consumption of only a fraction over 4li pounds of coal per hour for each horse-power. This shows what an eco nomical aa well ab powerful piece of machinery the American vesel Is. TO Ct'KK A COLD IN ONE DAY Take laxative Bramo Quinine Tablets.

In National Convention, appealing for the popular and historical Justification of their claims to tha matchleas achieve ments of thirty year of Republican rule, earnestly and confidently addresa themselvea to tha awakened Intelli gence, experience and conscience of their countrymen In tha following dec laration of facta and principles: For the first time since the Civil War the American people have wit nessed the calamitous consequences of full and unrestrained Democratic con trol of the Government It haa been a record of unparalled Incapacity, dis honor and disaster. In administrative management It has ruthlessly sacrific ed lndlspenlble revenue, entailed an unceasing deficit, eked out ordinary current expense with borrowed money, plied up the public debt by f2C2.00O.0OO 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 Ita policy It ha precipitated panic, blighted In dustry and trade with prolonged de pression, closed factories, reduced work and wage, 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 demand 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 be re stored to the party which for thirty year administered It with unequaled success and prosperity. A Protective Tarifl. W renew and emphasize our allegi ance, to the policy of protection aa tha bulwark of American Industrial Inde pendence and the foundation of Amer ican development and prosperity. Thla true American policy taxes foreign pro duct and encourages home Industry; It put the burden of revenue on for eign goods, u secures the American market for tha American producer; It upholds the American standard of wages for the American worklngman; It puts the factory by the side of the farm, and makes 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 aa 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 as will not only furnish adequat revenue for the necessary expenses of the government but will protect Amer ican labor from degredatlon 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 la the protection and development of American labor and industry. The country demands a right settlement and then It wants rest Reciprocity With. Other Nations, Wa believe the repeal of the reci procity arrangements negotiated by the last Republican administration was 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 of 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, free admission for the necessaries of Ufa 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. Wa 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 tha 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 wa promise the most ample protection. Merchant Marine. We favor restoring the early Amert- OF. TUB REPUBLICAN PARTY.' can policy of discriminating duties for th up-bulldlng of our merchant marine and the protection of our shipping; In the foreign carrying trade, so that American ships th product of Amer ican labor, employed In American ship yards, sailing under th Stars and Stripes, and manned, officered and owned by Americans may regain th carrying of our foreign commerce. The Financial Issue. "Th Republican party Is unreserv edly for sound money. It caused th enactment of th law providing for the resumption of sped payments In U7I; sine then every dollar has 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 w pledge ourselves to promote, and until such agreement can be obtained w. believe th existing gold standard must be preserved. Ail 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 th United State, and ail our money, whether coin or paper, at the present standard, th standard of the most enlightened na tion of the earth." Pensions for Veterans. Th veteran of the Union armies de serve and should receive fair treatment and generous recognition. Whenever practicable they should be given th preference in th matter of employ ment and they are entitled to the en actment of such laws as best calculat ed to secure the fulfillment of the pledges made to them In the dark days of the country's pertL 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 th rolls, aa deserving th severest condemnation of th American people Foreign Relations. Our foreign policy should be at an 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-need' ed naval station In the West Indies. Armenian Massacres. Th 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 dent 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 hazards and at any cost Monroe Doctrine. 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 hemisphere, 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. I The peace and security of the repub j Ilo and the maintenance of its rightful 1 influence among the nations of the j earth demand a naval power commen surate with Its position and responsi bility. We therefore favor the contin ued enlargement of the navy and Principles complete system of harbor and coaat defenses. Immigration laws. For th protection of the equality of our American citizenship and of the wage of our worklngmen against the fatal competition of low-priced labor, we demand that the Immigration laws be thoroughly enforced, and so extend ed aa to exclude from entrance to the United State those who can neither read nor writ. Civil Service. The Civil Bervlc law wa placed oa 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 the United States shall be allowed to cast one free and nnreatrirtwl haltnf afiit that such ballot shall be counted and returned as cast, . ., , Lynching Condemned. ' We proclaim our unqualified condexn-. nation of the uncivilized and barbarous practice, 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 ens-aged iu uiici.iaw vuDunan. Free Homesteads. We believe In an Immediate return to the free homestead policy of the Republican party and urge the p.isage by congress of the satisfactory free 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 the federal officers appointed for the terri tories shall be selected from bona fide residents thereof, and the right of self government shall be acorded as f ar 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. Sumptuary Legislation. We sympathise with ail wise and le gitimate efforts to lessen and prevent the evils of Intemperance and promote morality. Rights of Women. The Republican party Is mindful of the rights and interests of women. Pro tection of American industries includes equal opportunities, equal pay for equal work and protection to the home. We 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 th principles and policies of the Republi can party. By these principles we will ahirlA anil Mmaa nifnlnlA w.- n.01 . ... v . , . v nv I. 11 iy, into execution.
