There was a majority and a minority report from the Committee on Platform. The one presented by the majority, and adopted by 40 of the 51 members of the committee, was adopted. June 18, by the Convention by a vote of 81.2% to 110%. It was as follows: The Republicans of the United States assembled, by their representatives in National Convention, appealing for the popular and historical justification of their claims to the matchless achievements of thirty years of Republican rule, earnestly and confidently address themselves to the awakened intelligence, experience and conscience of their countrymen in the following declaration of facts and principles: or the first time since the Civil War the American people have witnessed the calamitous consequences of full and unrestricted Democratic control of the Government. It has been a record of unparalleled incapacity, dishonor and disaster. In administrative management it has ruthlessly sacrificed indispensable revenue, entailed an unceasing deficit, eked out ordinary current expenses with borrowed money, piled up the public debt by $262,000,000 in time of peace, forced an adverse balance of trade, kept a perpetual menace hanging over the emption fund, pawned American credit to alien syndicates, and reversed all the measures and results of successful Republican rule. In the broad effect of its o it has precipitated panic | bighted industry and trade with profonged depression, closed factories, reduced work and wages, halted enterprise and crippled American produetion, while stimulating foreign production for the American market. Every consideration of public safety and individual interest demands that the Government shall be rescued from the hands of those who have shown themseives incapable of conducting it without disaster at home and dishonor abroad, and shall be restored to the party which for thirty years administered it with unequalled success and prosperity. And in ! this connection we heartily indorse the wisdom, patriotism and the success of the Administration of President Harrison.” PROTECTION.—“We renew and emphasize our allegiance to the policy of protection as the bulwark of American industrial independence and the foundation of American development and prosperity. ; This true American policy taxes foreign products and encourages home industry; it puts the burden of revenue on foreign I go 5ds; it secures the American market for the American producer; it upholds the | American standard of wages for the American workingman; it puts the factory by the side of the farm, and makes the Arno rican farmer less dependent on foreign demandi and prices; it diffuses general thrift and founds the strength of all on the strength of each. In its reasonable application it is just, fair and impartial, equally opposed to foreign control and dørnestic monopoly, to sectional discrimination and individual favoritism. We denounce the present Democratic tariff as , sectional, injurious to the public credit and destructive to business enterprise. we demand such an equitable tariff on foreign imports which come into compe, tition with American products as will not only furnish adequate revenue for the necessary expenses of the Government, but will protect American 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 conditions of the time and of production; the ruling and uncompromising principle

y

is the protection - and development of

Arnerican labor and industry. The coundemands a right settlement, and then it "wants rest.” ;RECIPROCITY..—“We believe the repeal of the reciprocity arrangements negotiated by the last Republican Administration *as a National calamity, and we demand their renewal and extension on such terms as will equalize our trade with other nations, rernove the restrictions which now obstruct the sale of American products in the ports of other countries, and secure enfarged markets for the products of our farms, forests and factories. Protection and reciprocity are twin measures of Republican policy and go hand in hand. pernocratic rule has recklessly struck ion both, and both must be re-estabIshed. Protection for what we produce; free admission for the necessaries of life *hich we do not produce; reciprocal agreements of mutual interest which gain open markets for us in return for our open rmarket to others. Protection builds of domestic industry and trade and se

cures our own market for ourselves; r procity builds up foreign trade and f an outlet for our surplus.” SUGAR.—“We condemn the present ministration for not keeping "faith v the sugar producers of this country; Republican party favors such protec as will lead to the production on Am can soil of all the sugar which the Am can people use and for which they other countries more than $100,000,000 nually. To all our products—to those the mine and the field as well as thos the , shop and the factory—to hemp, wool, the product of the great industr; sheep husbandry, as well as to the ished woollens of the mill—we pron the most ample protection.” ., MERCHANT MARINE.-‘‘We favor storing the early American policy of criminating duties for the upbuilding our merchant marine and the protec of our shipping, in the foreign carry trade, so that American ships—the duct of American labor, employed American shipyards, sailing under . Stars and Stripes, and manned, office and owned by Americans—may regain carrying of our foreign commerce.” MONEY.-“The Republican party is reservedly for sound money. It cau the enactment of the law providing the resumption of specie payment in 18 since then every dollar has been as g as gold. We are unalterably opposed every measure calculated to debase currency or impair the credit of our co try. We are, therefore, opposed to free coinage of silver, except by inter tional agreement with the leading co mercial nations of the world, which pledge ourselves to promote; and, u. such agreement can be obtained, the isting gold standard must be preserv All our silver and paper currency must maintained at parity with gold, and favor all measures designed to maint inviolable the obligations of the Uni States and all our money, whether coin paper, at the present standard, the sta ard of the most enlightened Nations of earth.” WAR WETERANS.–"The veterans the Union armies deserve and should ceive fair treatment and generous rec nition. Whenever practicable they sho be given the preference in the matter employment, and they are entitled to enactment of such laws as are best c culated to secure the fulfilment of pledges made to them in the dark days the country's peril. We denounce practice in the Pension Bureau, so re. lessly and unjustly carried on by present Administration, of reducing p sions and arbitrarily dropping nar from the rolls, as deserving the sever condemnation of the American people.” Foreign Rei, ATIONs.-‘‘our fore pelicy should be at all times firm, vig ous and dignified, and all our snterests the Western Hemisphere carefully watcl and guarded. The Hawaiian Islal should be controlled by the United Stat and no foreign Power should be permit to interfere with them: the Nicarag Canal should be built, owned and op ated by the United States, and, by purchase of the Danish Islands, we sho secure a proper and much-needed na' 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 residents have been exposed to the gravest dangers, and American property destroyed. 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 we reaffirm the right of the United States to give the Doctrine effect by responding to the appeals of any American State for friendly intervention in case of European encroachment. 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 to the ultimate union of all of the English-speaking part of the continent by the free consent of its inhabitants.” 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 domination. We watch with deep and abiding interest the heroic battle of the Cuban patriots against cruelty and oppression, and our best hopes go out for the full success of their determined contest for liberty. The Government of Spain, having lost control of Cuba, and being unable to protect the property or lives of resident American citizens, or to comply with its treaty obligations, 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.” NAVY. —“The peace and security of the Republic, and the maintenance of its rightful influence among the nations of the earth, demand a naval power com— mensurate with its position and responsibility. We therefore favor the continued enlargement of the Navy and a complete system of harbor and seacoast defences.” IMMIGRATION.—“For the prot ction of the equality of our American citizenship and of the wages of our workingmen against the fatal co tition of lowpriced labor, we demand that the immigration laws be thoroughly enforced and so extended as to exclude from entrance to the 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 declarations that it shall be thoroughly and honestly enforced and extended wherever practicable.” FREE BALLOT.-“We demand that every citizen of the United States shali be allowed to cast one free and unrestricted ballot, and that such ballot shall be counted and returned as cast.” LYNCHINGS.—“We proclaim our unqualified condemnation of the uncivilized

[ocr errors]
[graphic]

THE TRIBUNE ALMANAC FOR 1897.

and barbarous practices well known as lynching or killing of ruman beings, suspected or charged with crime, without process of law.” ARBITRATION.—“We favor the creation of a National Board of Arbitration to settle and adjust differences which may arise between employers and employed engaged in interstate commerce.” HOMEl:TEADS.—“We believe in an immediate return to the free homestead policy of the Republican party, and urge the passage by Congress of the satisfactory free homestead measure which has already passed the House and is now pending on the Senate.” TERRITORIES.—“We favor the admission of the remaining Territories at the earliest practicable date, having due regard to the interests of the people of the Territories and of the United States. All the Federal officers appointed for the Territories should be selected from bona fide residents thereof, and the right of self-government should be accorded as far as practicable. We believe the citizens of Alaska should have representation in the Congress of the United States, to the end that needful legislation may be intelligently enacted.” TEMPErrance AND RIGHTS or WOMEN.—“We sympathize with all wise and legitimate efforts to lessen and prevent the evils of intemperance and promote morality. The Republican party is mindful of the rights and interests of women. Protection of American industries includes equal opportunities, equal ay for equal work, and protection to the ome. We favor the admission of women to wider spheres of usefulness, and welcome their co-operation in rescuing the country from Democratic and Populistic mismanagement and misrule. + “Such are the principles and policies of the Republican party. By these princi— ples we will abide, and these policies 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 candidates in the full assurance that the election will bring victory to the Republican party and prosperity of the people of the United States.” The vote on the platform by States was as follows:

The minority report was as follows:

“we, the undersigned members of the Committee on Resolutions, being unable to agree with that part of the majority report which treats of the subjects of coinage and finance, respectfully submit the following paragraph as a substitute therefor:

**The Republican party favors the use of both goid and silver as equal standard money, and pledges its power to secure the free, unrestricted and independent coinage of gold and silver at our mints at the ratio of 16 parts of silver to 1 of gold.”

This was defeated by a motion to lay it on the table by the following vote:
