THE PLATFORM ADOPTED.
A String of Platitudes, Evasions and Self Self Self
(ilorilicalieu. In the Chicago convention en Saturday
afternoon Mr. Pierrepont, of New Yerk,
from the resolution committee, reported as
fellows : I need hardly say that in a com
mittee composed of one from each state in
the union, from each territory,and from the
District of Columbia, there is a great diver
sity of opinion about the question of the
resolutions te be brought before the con
vention. Early in the convention it became
apparent that we would have a sufficient
number of exciting topics te keep us active
and awake, and we have endeavored in the
resolutions which we present te have
nothing en which we could net ourselves
agree and nothing that would tend te dis
turb the harmony of this convention or
awaken angry debate or cause long delay.
I have new the honor te present the reso
lutions which the committee have agreed
The Republican party, in national con
vention assembled, at the end of twenty
years since the federal government was
lirst committed te its charge, submit te the
people of the United States this brief re
port of its administration. It suppressed
a rebellion which had armed nearly a mil
lion of men te subvert the national author
ity. Applause. It reconstructed the
union of the states, with freedom instead
of slavery as its corner-stone. Applause.
It transformed 4,000,000 of human beings
from the likeness of things te the rank of
citizens. Applause. It relieved Con
gress from the infamous work of hunting
fugitive slaves, and charged it te see that
slavery does net exist. It has raised the
value of our paper currency from thirty
eight per cent, te the par of geld.
Cheers. It has restored upon a solid
basis payment of coin for all the national
obligations, and has given us a currency
absolutely geed and equal in every part of
our extended country. It has lifted the
credit of the nation from the
point where six per cent, bends sold
at eighty-six cunts te that where
four per cent bends are eagerly sought at
a premium. Under its administration
railways have increased from 31,000 miles
in 18G0 te mere than 82,000 miles in 1879.
Our foreign trade has increased from $700,
000,000 te $1,130,000,000 in the same time,
and our experts, which were $20,000,000
less than our imports in 18G0, were $204,
000,000 nieie than our impeits in 1879.
(Applause.) Without resorting te leans it
has since the war-closed defrayed the ordi
nary expenses of the government, besides
the accruing interest en the public debt,
and has annually disbursed mere than $30,
000,000 for soldiers' pensions. It has paid
$288,000,000 of the public debt, and by le
funding the balance at lower rates has re
duced the annual interest charge from
nearly $151,000,000 te less than $89,000,
000. All the industries of the country have
revived, labor is in demand, wages have
increased, and throughout the entire ceun
try there is evidence of a coming prosper
ity greater than we have ever enjoyed.
Upen this record the Republican party
asks for the continued confidence and sup
port of the people, and this convention
submits for their approval the following
statements of the principles and purposes
which will continue te guide and inspire its
elfei ts :
Fit t We affirm that the work of the
last twenty-one years has been such as te
commend itself te the favor of the nation,
and that the fruits of the costly victeiies
which we have achieved through immense
difficulties should be preserved ; that the
peace regained should be cherished ; that
the dissevered union new happily restored
should be perpetuated, and that the liber
ties secured te this generation should be
transmitted undiminished te future gen
erations ; that the order established and the
credit acquired should never be impaired ;
that the pensions promisedjsheuld be ex
tinguished by the full payment of every
dollar theieef ; that the reviving industries
should be further promoted, and that the
commerce, already se great, should be
Second The constitution of the United
States is a supreme law and net a mere
contract ; out of confederated states it
made a sovereign nation. Seme powers
are denied te the nation, while ethers ate
denied te the states ; but the boundary
between the powers delegated and these
reserved is te be determined by the na
tional and net by the state tribunals. ( Ap
plause.) Third The work of popular education
is one left te the care of the several states,
but it is the duty of the national govern
ment te aid that work te the extent of its
constitutional duty. The intelligence of
the nation is but the aggregate of the in
telligence of the several states, and the
destiny of the nation must be guided, net
by the jcnius of any one state, but by the
average genius of all.
Fourth The constitution wisely forbids
Cengrcs te make any law respecting an
establishment of religion, but it is idle te
hope that the nation can be protected
against the influence of sectarianism while
each state is exposed te its deminaRVi.
We therefore recommend that the consti
tution be se amended as te lay the same
prohibition upon the Legislature of each
state and te forbid the appropriation of
the public funds te the support of secta
rian schools. Cheers.
Fifth We affirm the belief avowed in
1870 that the duties levied for the purpose
of revenue should se discriminate as te
favor American labor (applause) that
no further grant of the public domain
should be made te any railway or ether
corporation ; that slavery having perished
in the states, its twin barbarity, polygamy,
must die in the territories (applause)
that every where the protection accorded
te citizens of American birth must be se
cured te citizens by American adoption,
and that we esteem it the duty of Con
gress te develop and improve our water
courses and harbors, but insist that
further subsidies te private persons or cor
porations must cease ; that the obligations
of the republic te the men who preserved
its integrity in the hour of battle are un
diminished by the lapse of the fifteen
years since their final victory te de them
perpetual honor is, and shall forever be,
the grateful privilege and sacred duty of
the American people.
Sixth Since the authority te regulate
immigration and intercourse between the
United States and foreign nations rests
with Congress, or with the United States
and its treaty making, the Republican
party, regarding the unrestricted immigra
tion of the Chinese as an evil of great mag
nitude, invoke the exercise of these powers
te restrain and limit that immigration by
the enactment of such just, humane and
reasonable previsions as will produce that
Seventh That the purity and patriotism
which characterized the career or Ruther
ford B. Hayes in peace and war and which
guided the thoughts of our immediate
predecessors te him for a presidential can
didate have continued te inspire him in his
career as chief executive, and that history
will accord te his administration the honors
which are due te an efficient, just and
courteous discharge of the public business,
and will honor his interpositions between
the people and proposed partisan laws.
Eighth We charge upon the Democratic
party the habitual sacrifice of patriet'sm
and justice te a supreme and and insatiable
lust of office and patronage ; that te obtain
possession of the national and state govern
ments and the control of place and position
they have obstructed all efforts te promote
the purity and conserve the freedom of
suffrage, and have devised fraudulent
certifications and return ; have labored te
unseat lawfully elected members of Con
gress ; te secure at all hazards the vote of a
majority of the states in the Heuse of Re
presentatives ; have endeavored te occupy
by force and fraud the places of trust given
te ethers by the people of Maine, and
rescued by the courageeusaction of Maine's
patriotic sous ; have by methods vicious
in principle and tyrannical in practice at
tached partisan legislation te appropriation
bills, upon whose passage the very move
ment of th3 government depends, and
have crushed the rights of individuals; have
advocated the principles and sought the
favor of rebellion against the nation and
have endcaveied te obliterate the sacred
memory of the war and te overcome its
inestimably valuable results of nationality
perseual freedom and individual equality.
The equal, steady, and complete enforce
ment of the laws and the protection of all
our citizens in the enjoyment of all pri
vileges and immunities guaranteed by the
constitution are the first duties of the
The dangers of a "solid" Seuth can
only be averted by a faithful performance
of every premise which the nation has
made te the citizen. The execution of the
laws and the punishment of theso who vio
late them are the only safe methods by
which an enduring peace can be secured
and genuine prosperity established
throughout the Seuth. Whatever premises
the nation makes the nation must perform
and the nation cannot with safety regulate
this duty in the states. The "solid"
Seuth must be divided through the peace
ful agencies of the ballet, and all opinions
must there find free expression, and te this
end the honest voter must be protected
against terrorism, violence or fraud.
And we affirm it te be the duty and pur
pose of the Republican party te use evcry
legitimate means te restore all the states
of this union te the most perfect harmenv
that may be practicable, and we submit it
te the practical, sensible people of the
United States te say whether it would net
be dangerous te the dearest interests of our
country at this time te surrender the ad
ministration of the national government
te the party which seeke te overthrew the
existing policy u nder which we are se
prosperous, and thus bring distrust and
confusion where there are new order, con
fidence and hope.
Civil Service Buncombe.
The resolutions having been read by the
secretary of the committee, Mr. James M.
Barker, of Massachusetts, moved te amend
by adding the following :
The Republican party, adhering te the
principles affirmed ly its last national con
vention of icspect for the constitutional
rules governing appointments te office,
adepts the declaration of President Hayes,
that the reform in the civil service shall be
thorough, radical and complete. Te that
end it demands the co-operation of the
legislative with the executive department
of the government, and that Congress
shall se legislate that fitness, ascertained
by proper practical tests, shall admit te the
public service. That the tenure of admin
istrative offices (except these through
which the distinctive policy of the party in
power shall be carried out) shall be perma
nent during geed behavior, and that the
power of removal for cause, with due re
sponsibility for the geed conduct of subor
dinates, shall accompany the power of ap
pointment. Mr. Barker bi icily supported his propo prepo
sition. Mr. Flanigan, of Texas, said his state
had had enough of the civil service. They
were net here for the purpose of getting
offices for the Democracy. Laughter. J
What are wc here for except te get office '?
Great laughter and applause. He had
great regard for that motto of the Demo
cracy, "Te the victors belong the spoils."
If the Republicans arc victors they are
entitled te the offices, and these who
fought in the cause will get them if jus
tice is done.
Mr. Cessna, of Pennsylvania, moved
that the whole platform, together with the
proposed amendment, be recommitted te
the committee en resolutions, with in
structions te report back the platform
forthwith, without the amendment.
Colonel Cedinan, of Massachusetts, as
sured the gentleman from Pennsylvania
that he could net by that means avoid
having a vote en the amendment. The
delegates from Massachusetts were deter
mined te have a vote upon it. He had been
impressed with the geed opinion which the
gentleman from Texas, (Mr. Flanigan) en
tertained for his associates in the conven
tion. That gentleman had said the dele
gates had come here te arrange for taking
the offices. He (Mr. Codman) protested
against such an idea. He and his colleagues
had come te help te nominate a man for
president who would see, se far as he had
anything te de with offices, that the right
men were put in the right places. Ap
plause. He hoped they would nominate
somebody who did net peddle out offices
as a reward for political services.
Mr. Cessna urged adherence te the work
of the committee en resolutions, who un
doubtedly had considered all questions
presented te them and deliberately and in
telligently determined what should be
acted upon here. The departments at
Washington were still full of old Demo
crats and rebels, and h.2 didn't want civil
service rules te be tee strictly enforces un
til these could be turned out and their
places filled with the single legged and one
armed men who had been crippled in their
country's cause. (Great applause.)
The Amendment Platform Adopted.
Mr. Warner, of Alabama, said that the
question of civil service reform was here
and must be met, and they did net dare
te vote it down.
Mr. Carter, colored delegate from Mis
sissippi, favored reference of the resolu
tions back te the committee for modifica
tion en some ether points than civil
service reform, and en this hinged a five
minute speech, in which he said that
though under Lincoln his race in the Seuth
had been emancipated and were no longer
chattels, they were still slaves in fact and
net free as the resolutions declared.
Mr. Warner, of Alabama, moved te
strike out the sentence in Mr. Barker's
amendment which re-enacts the tenure of
Mr. Van Hern, of Missouri, a member
of the committee en resolutions, said that
the preposition had been brought twice
before that committee and had been re
jected. He did net believe that the people
were in favor of a life tenure of office in
the country. He thought that the gentle
man from Massachusetts (Barker,) had
net treated the committee fairly in with
holding votes ; that he intended te bring
it before the convention, otherwise the
committee might have reported a resolu
tion that would meet the common sense of
Mr. Antheny, of Illinois, moved an
amendment, which Mr. Barker accepted,
and the amendment of Mr. Barker was
adopted, and then the resolutions as amen
ded were also adopted without a call of
The resolution as adopted emits the ten
ure of office clause, otherwise it is partically
as originally introduced.
