The men who abandoned the republican par
tv in Issl and continue lo adhere to the demo
cratic party have deserted not only the cause
of hoi est gove-iiiiieiit. but of sound finance, of
freedom and purity of the ballot, but espec
ially have deserted "the cavtrc of refori in the
civil service. We will not. fall to keep our
Hedges because tb y have broken theirs, or
he -ause their candidate has broken his. We
l herefore repea" our tleelarat ion of 1ss4, tow it :
The reform of civil service auspiciously Ix-uti
uio'er a.liiiini.slratio i should be
completed bv a further extension of th- reform
sstem already established by law to all grades
of the service "to which it is applied. The spir
it s-.nd purpose of reform should he observed in
all executive appointment, and all law at
varlenee v. ii it the object of exist ii'ij reform leg

gers lo free nistitutioi-s which lurk in the pow
