GRAND' RATIFICATION RALLY ! ! !
THE REPUBLICANS of Nemaha.
County are requested to meet is 'Mass
Meeting at McPhersbn's New Hall on
Saturday, Hay SOihat 1 o'clock,
To ratify both the National and State
Nominations recently made.
We elsewhere print the proceedings of
the Chicago: Republican Convention,
wherein is set forth the platform of the
Republican party -ot the Nation the line
cn which the battle is to be fought the
coming summer, and" concerning which
there ought to be no dispute among loyal
The party takes no backward step in
its national policy. It moves right on to
the front, and takes its position boldly
and squarely upon the solid doctrines of
universal freedom ; of the admission of
the Sorthern Slates to representation
under the constitutions lately adopted ; of
loyal suffrage in States to be admitted
hereafter; of the reduction of taxation
as rapidly as the national faith will per
mit ; cf the extension of the national
debt over, a fair period for redemption ;
of the establishment of the national cred
it on that basis which insures the lowest
rate of interest; of economy in adminis
tering the national goverament ; of grat
itude to the soldier and sailor, and of
their obligation to their orphans and
widows; of tha duty of fostering emigra
tion; of sympathy to all strugling for
their rights, and of that charity which ex
tends the right hand of fellowship to
those of the rebel army who have forsa
ken their treason and are accepting in
good faith "the situation. n They with
equal force denounce all forms of repu
diation as a national crime ; denounce
the heresy of monarchial governments
that once a citizen always a citizen," as
a rule cf barbarism; and denounce the
treachery, usurpation and abuse of An
drew Johnson. And upon such a plat
form stand our heroic leaders General
Grant and Schuyler Colfax, with the
emblem of victory in their hands.
The nation has surely spoken, and her
flat must be performed. The decree
has gone forth that the present policy,
inaugurated by Lincoln and executed by
Congress, must be handed down to pos
terity through the instrumentality of
Grant and Colfax, and all tha powers of
the infernal world cannot prevail against
it. We are resigned hand her down.
We clip the following from the Ne
braska City JVeir of a recent date:
The Democrat la Nemaha cotrntj are beginning
to organise for the fall campaign. Some of tbetn
faror the nomination of E. W. Thomas for Chief
Justice of tbe State. Should the Democracy elect
a Chief Justice the Constitutional right of Air.
Eatler to appoint would be tested."
We can assure the JVor that the
Democracy have but little heart for or
ganization. We admit, however, that
they are a plucky set of fellows, and
would work like tigers on anything like
an even thing. They are clever enough
to discern that politically the City, Coun
ty, State and National White Houses,
present and prospective, are a long way
beyond their reach, and this cools their
ardor and makes organization irksome.
E. W. Thomas is a gentleman, a scholar,
end a very liberal minded Democrat.
His legal attainments, and his moral
honesty and his social refinements emi
nently fit him for the bench or bar ; and
were we compeled to take our Chief Jus
tice from the -ranks of the Democratic
fold, we know of njae we would so eoon
take as him. Should he be a candidate
the Democracy would insist upon weight
ing him too heavy to give him any
chance in the race.
Col. R. W. Furnas sent us from Chi
cago a telegraphic dispatch of the nom
inations for President and Vice Presi
dent oa the day they were made. He
also brings the Chicago Tribune contain

IIASS MEETING 1.
Ensrlxiecr's Report ortJi Broirn

Brownville, May 20th, 1SCS.
Pursuant to a call a number cf the cit
izens cf Nemaha county met at Mcpher
son's Hall to hear the report of Engineer
Smith oq the probable cost and practica
bility cf a railroad from Brownville to
Big Sandy, and the report of the Finan
cial Agent of the Brownville, Ft. Kear
ney and Pacific Railroad Co., in regard
to the prospect of raising funds for mak
icg a permanent survey of the same.
R. F. Barret, Esq., was called to the
Chair. Dr. McPherson- stated the ob
ject of the meeting, and called upon Mr.
Smith for a report, who made the fol-
Browvtillc, Nib., May2Ist, ISCS.
To the Pretident and Directors of the Brownville,
Ft. Kearny f Pacific li. Jt.
Eih : I reictiuUy submit the following report of
a reconnoisfaiice of tbe Soothern Route of the proposed
Railroad from Brownville to Bit; Sandy on tbe Little
Blue river. The proposed ro'ite passes tbroush tbe
following counties Nemaha, JoLnson. Gace and Jef
ferpon touching tbe county teats Teruuiseh and Beat
rice, and as nearly as is practicable through tbe centre
north and south, also ne tr the principal aettlci&enU
and cultivated pontons thereof.
The dibtance will be approximately about ninety-five
tulles The country for tbe first thirty-Ova miles la
watered by the Little Nemaha, Muddy and Big Nemaha
with tieie numerous branches. Although tbe streams
are froiaeiiibt to ten miles apart, yet the intermedi
ate space is badiy cut tip wi h ravines running In a
southerly direction, all of which would have to be
crossed at a heavy expense for g adlng and waterways ;
but try following some of tbe branches or creeks lead-
In nearly ia tbe rlpttf direction, a tolerably fair route
can be found without heavj grades or very expensive
work, but the route will be necearlly circuitous.
The divide west of the Big Nemaha is drained by
Tankee Creek, with Us numerous tributaries running
nearly to all paints of the compass by Turkey creek
cunning south-east, and by Muddy, Cedar and Bear
creeks cn the west, emptying into the Big Blue
This divide is, however, n,t so badly cut up as the
above mentioned ones
From Beatrice westward the divide is drained by
Cub. Creek, on the west by many branches of Little
Sandy and ty Rock creek, the two letter emptying into
the Little Bine. This divide Is more level than any
prtion heretoire passe i over, extending from a half
to two miles in wld h. and about twenty-two miles in
leneth. The divide north r,f Cobcreelt is also very large
and level, and cither of them offers a g od route.
The population of the counties west cf Nernaha is
small, but rapidly increasing in numbers. The princi
pal settlement are found along the streams. By the
time your road wou'd reach thcin. they will have more
than doubted, and will be better aU'e to bear their
tha re in pushing forward this nitr'h needed road.
Of tbe soil I seel hardly peak. You all know its
rich qualities and capabilities, when cultivated, cf
yielding heavy crops nf urala of all kn.ds.
Timt er along the roate, su:tab!e for bridging purpos
es, is bard to find; and a further development of coal
for fuel for locomotives will be found uecenary, orelse
fuel will bave to be tranfported from the river for use
alons the line of the road. I am at present of cpinion
that it will be found cheaper to obtain bridge material
from the MitKissifpi river and transport it here, than
to build the necehsary bridges of the timber of the
Stone is found in larjro quantities on all the principal
ptreams, principally masosia lime etone. It nuke
good iime, and well adapted lor bridge abutments acd
culverts. I ehouid recommend the ue of fUoe ror
waterways Id preference to imp rtitig timber for trustle
work, besides the farther advajtaje of then having a
permanent road-bed. a matter of decided economy in
maintaining a roal-bed herea'ter.
GENERAL REVIEW OF ROUTES EXAMINED.
In order to find the most practicable route to leave
tbe Missouri river, I bave examined the principal ra
vines in tbe neighborhood, both north nd eonth of the
town. Tbe ravine leading through South Brownville is
tbe only practicable one to reach the divide between the
Missouri and Little Nemaha rivers; but to ascend by
that will retder necessary a Heavy grade, and a deep
summit cut, although not a long one. The ravine Inio
which it leads opens into tbe Little Nemaha bottom a
considerable distance south of Br.wnvilie.
The route down the bottom to Nemaha City offers no
hevy grade, no heavy work, but will be some fonr or
Ave miles longer to Long's Branch (by which the most
favourable rcute across the Nemaha divide is fouDd.)
quite a serious item as f-tr as iron and ties and main
tenance of roadway is concerned, but less power would
be required to move heavy fclght or passenger trains
by this route than by th.e South Brownville or louey
The Honey Creek route leaves the Missouri bottom
about three ny!e above the town. It offer a very fair
route so far as I have examined it; but would also ren
der necessary an ascending and dwcndinn graae, with a
summit cut to cron the divide to the Little Nemba.
It is however, I think, tbe best route to go to the Little
Nemaha to connec t with Lung's Branch, and cross the
divide to Muddy creek.
The general direction to Long's Branch is for the first
mile west. It then bears around to south-west, and fi
nally reaches the divide at the lowest p-iint in a south
erly direction about six miies from, lu mouth. The
corresponding draw on tbe west iide leads eouth-wi-st
to the Muddy creek, striking it at a point where the
river takes a general direction south. Following up
Muddy creek the main fork Is crossed uear SteinmanV,
and tbe south fork (incorrectly so called) is followed in
a north westerly direction to it had.
The ronie br wemaha City would ascend Pa rick's
bvancb to its head, then would have to cros tbe heads
of a number of ravines between it and a point suitable
to descend to Mud.iy creek. It wonli probably be two
or three mile shorter. Snrveys alone can determine
which cf the two r utes wou d be beat to d pt. Al
though more expensive, It would be more direct, wlih
J nut as favourable grades ; an I I am inclined to favor
this Soctberc rou e. Taedivide between Mn ldycretk
and the north fork of the Great Nemaha ia badly cut tip
by ravine cf Long Branch running south-easterly, and
Spring creek waters running north) but a very fair
route can be found acro.ts to B-ity's branch leading to
Tecutn.'eb, thecoucty-seat of Jolinion cmiuty.
Fr)m Tec'tm,-eb. west two routes offer. The south
foute asccuaa by a branih directly west of Tecuuveh
croe-ing the divide to toe head waters of Turkey creek.
wLirh it fallowed to the real maioylivtde soae 12 miles
south-west of Tecumscb. But In irder to beid the
south fork of Tankee creek the line would bave to fol
low the divide m me six miles eonth, and into tbe lower
tier of aections of the townbhlp soutn cf Trcumseh. It
then beirs n rtb to the head waters of Cedar creek,
descending which far two or three miles tUe nature of
the country easily allows u to cross over on to Bear
creek, and thus reach the Bine at Beatrice, the county
seat of Gace county.
The northern route wou'd ascend the Nemaha to Tan
kee creek in a north-westerly direction about three
miles, then follow Tankee creek some four or five
uilea to a point from which the divide on tbe north
could be reached, following it to the bead water of
Bear creek to descend to Beatrice on tbe Big Bine.
Both of these route have their advantages and dis
advantages. Tapkee creek bottoms are crooked and
veiy n-rr-iw, the creek in many cases washing the foot
of high point, rendering necessary heavy work or else
bridges to cross tbe creek several times On the south
ern route tbe work would fceprob.bh' lew expensive
but longer, and the divide at some points Is crooked
with hhort elbows.
I atro examined two routes west of the Blue, between
Big Sandy on the Little Blue, at which p ilot we shall
connect with the Atchison and Ft Kearney railroad
surveys now being made. The northern route, after
reaching tbe divide from Cub creek is very level and
broad, having butone or two sloughs nf any account to
CToa. it forms a great circle of which Cub creek is
the chord, and bears north nearly to Swan City. An
ea-y descent can be sot by a branch of ihe Little Sandy
to tbe Little Blue. Tlietoute south of Cubcreek think
will be found more direct and shorter, with easy grades
and light work.
Surveys alonecan decide wbicb. of the many routes
will be found the test, most direct, cheapest t build,
and best suited to meet the waias of the community.
That a possible route caa.be-found across Southern Ne
braska 1 have not tue least doubt An approximate es
timate is subjoined i't ibe probable, cost to grade and
bridge the road for nitiety-flve miles. Bridges wi.i be
required over the two Nemahas, Muddy creek, and
souicou Tanks creek (if that route be adopted) also on
Cedar and Bear creeks, and over the Big Blue and
15 miles at $6 675 por cillcay $623,000.

survey, and the time reqairtd to make the same, to

cost about 1 3,00o.

A. D. Richardson, in his forthcoming
life of Grant, says:
Some still see in him only the darling
of fortune energetic mediocrity, which
has blundered into success. I think such
axe misled by two-of his pecular qualities:
I. His unimaginaiiveness. When he
has nothing to say, he says nothing. In
private he fills no interstices of conversa
tion by remarks upon the weather, or in
quires after the babies of his visitor.
In public he can make no speeches simply
of form or compliment; and since the
world cared to hear his opinions on affairs
his official position has never allowed
him to speak freely. But in public or
private, when he has anything to utter
by tongue or pen, he says it with ex
treme rapidity and clearness! in terse,
marrow, idiomatic English. Even then
he clothes his thoughts in no flowers of
rhetoric, but present them in the plainest
horaelist words. Napoleon's memorable
sayings are all of this order : 'From ihese
summits forty centuries look down upon
you.' Wp will carry our victorious'
eagles beyond the pillars of Hercules.'
Grant's are the exact antipodes: 'I have
no terms but unconditional surrender.'
4I propose to move immediately upon
vour works.' I shall figh it out on this
line if it takes all summer.' 4I found
the armv like a balkv horse.' 'General
Bailer was bottled up.' Said the dram
atic Corsican. after Ausieilitz: 'Soldiers
I am satisfied with you. You have deco
rated your eagles with immortal glory.'
Said the matter-of-fact American to his
shooting men, after Port Gibson: 'Sol
diers, 1 thank you. That is all I can say.
You have done a good day's work to day
but you must do a belter one to-morrow.'
No shining rhetoric, no poetic gushes;
only the simple, unadorned fact.
"II. He is the most undramatio of men.
Scott was nicknamed by his enemies
'Fuss and Featheis. Grant has less
fufsand fewer leathers than any other
public man of his day. He believes,
with the Chinese proverb, that 'That
which is is.' He accepts things just as
he finds them, not troubling himself about
the 'Eternal Verities' bat doing promptly,
thorougly and subordinately the duty
which lies right befjre him, however
prosaic and disagreeable. He acts his
convictions instead of talking them.
'H3 is utterly genuine and
guiltless. He still preseives in his high
estate the sweetness and simplicity of
his country boyhood. Altogether free
from cant, his lips, obeying the teachings
of his mother, have uttered nooaih, been
soiled by no coarseness.
"He is a miracle of serenity and self
poise. During the terrors of Belmont,
when an aide, with pallid cheeks, cried,
'Why, General, we are surrounded!'
there was no perceptible change in his
pleasant face or calm vpice as he answer
ed, 'Then we will cut our way out. 'Three
years later, as he read Lee's dispatch
proposing the surrender of the army of
Northern Virginia, he was equaly un
moved ; no elation shone in his face or
sounded in. the ordinary tone ia which he
asked, Well, General Rawlins, how do
you think ihat will do ?' 'Tried by both
extremes of fortune, and never disturbed
by either,' he remains as simple and un
affected to day as in his years of poverty
Mr. WILLIAMS. Mr. President, I
move that the Senate proceed to the con
tideration of the concurrent resolution
of the House of Representatives in refer
ence to an adjournment.
Tha motion was agreed to; and the
Senate proceeded to consider the follow
ing concurrent resolution of the House of
Jletoleed by tt flime of Ii'preentatice$,(iho
Senate concurring,) That at the adjjurnment on
Saturday, tbe 16tu ioataut, a recess bo taken until
Monday, the 2jlh Instant. .
Mr. TIPTQN. Mr. President, I am
clearly of opinion that our constituents
are already disgusted at the number of
adjournments we have recently had, and
I think that as the majority with which
I am identified are responsible for these
adjournments it is high time that we be
gin to look them in the face. If we
adjourn now for one week, we then have
a precedent for adjourning for the New
York convention We know that the
fall campaign will occupy the attention
especially of members of tha House of
Representatives who are to be re-elected
and we know the interest lhar Senators
will take in that campaign, and conse
quently we are to have a short summer
session. The result of an adjournment
now is to cut off the maturing and con
summating of private bills and bills of a
local character, dearer to some of our
constituents than matters of general leg- j
lslation, and more needed in their esti
mation. It is on our part, therefore, I
think, a relinquishment of the private
bills and bills of a local character to take
this adjournment now and the consequent
audiiitional adjournment which will fol
low hereafter. For this reason, as the
summer session must necessarily be
ehort, I am utterly opposed to an 'ad
journment at this time. I am especially
opposed to that adjournment from the
fact that the reconstructed States of
which we have talked so much, and in J
whose introduction here we are undoubt
edly so deeply interested, are waiting at
our doors to' be admitted ; and when a
bill for their admission shall pass it has
to run the gauntlet of the veto, end we
do not expect its return here under tea
days from the time of its consumation,
and then it is to be passed over the veto
again, as has been the history hereto
fore. Consequently, if we are to admit
these States at tnis session, it is high
time that we act upon the question, and
act promptly. Every interest that ap
peals to us as individuals and as repre
sentatives of the party that if responsible
to this country for its legislation at the
present time imperatively demands that
we be found at our posts continuously
untill we adjourn for the session.
As to putting the Hall in better trim
for the summer, I see nothing in that
suggestion. If we remain here now, we
shall have a session of but perhaps six
weeks, and there is no remodeling neces
sary either for our comfort, or our health.
In no view which I can take of the
question can I see any reason whatever
wny we should adjourn now after the re
peated adjournments we have eo recently
had, and which have worked cut such
marvelous resuks as they have in the
consumaticn of the vote cf thi? morning.

LETTER FI1031 SENATOR TIPTOE
Washington, D. C. May 13th.
Jarvis S. Church Dear Sir : I am
not astonished that the friends of railroad
in Nemaha county are very aniious to
hear from their measure, the Brownville
and Fort Kearney Railroad.
Impeachment blocked everything, and
still holds all measures of the kind back.
Before it came up, the officers of the
Central Pacific road from Atchison, Kan
sas, west, '"were here in full force for ad
ditional aid for their road, which is com
pleted one hundred miles, and although
they got a report, and their bill became
a special order, and was backed up by
old and powerful friends, it has hung
fire for more than two months. And
when we get through the trial it will
have the precedence ; but I am of opin
ion even it will not get attention till
after the waning Stales from the South
are admitted ; and then so many mem
bers are to be re-elected next fall that
there will be an effort to get away early,
and so mauy more are fearful of making
grants or appropriations that no one can
guess what measures will receive final
action. The Hr)n. Mr. Cavode, appreci
ating these influences, said in my hearing
to Dr. McPherson aDd Col. Furnas, just
hefore they left for home I would
rather enter into bond with security for
the passage of y6ur bill, after the elec
tion, than promise anything now." Mr.
Pomeroy, chairman of the committee on
lands, is our fast friend, and whatever
can be will be dtrne for us.' - If any one
thinks I am indiferent as to the result,
hey do me great injustice. My town
lo in Browtjvilltr and loud DPtir LiUIlg's '
Bridge, need the stimulus of a railroad
as much as any man's property in the
Slate, so in a selfish point of view I could
not be other than anxious. I wih the
road for the good of all ; and knowing the
enterprise of the age demands it, no
tffurt shall be spared in that direction.
I am very1 truly.
T. W. TIPTON.
The Washington correspondent of the
St.' Louis Evening Dispatch snys those
who have hitherto been slow to believe
that Chirf Justice Chase vas seriously
being pressed for the Democratic nom
ination, have been compelled to change
their minds by the appearance this mor
nitig, in the telegraphic-dispatches furn
ished to ari0u3 Democratic pipers by
ihe official stenographer at the White
House, of an article commending Air
Chase to the New York Convention as the
strongest candidate. The idea put forth
and which is undoutedly approved, if not
inspired,, by the President, is that there
is a general feeling, in consequence of
the strength of the Republican nomina
tions, that the most available candidates
must be chosen by the Conservatives ;
that, ihose most prominently urgd for
the nomination unite in this view ; that
there is quite a general concurrence in
the idea that the Chief Justice could un
ite all factions among the Conservatives;
could carry seventy Southern electoral
votes, and would . command mere Con
servative Republicans and disaffected
Radicals than any other man that could
It is needless to say that the publica
tion of this remarkable dispatch, coming:
from the source, it does, ' exciies much
comment. It is regarded as a corrobo
ration of the statements which have hith
erto encountered same doubts, that Mr.
Chase would accept the Democratic nom
ination, and as throwing light upon his
anxiety to procure Johnson's acquittal,
as well as intriguing with the colored

President Johnson when they knew him guilty of
the crime chaiged. Finally, they reco&vnend the

The onlj point in tho resolutions excitirjj much
feeling was that denouncing tho non-impeaching
Senators, whi3h was received with great applause.
Haussarek, ex-minister to Ecuador, was called
out, and made an eloquent party speech. There
was Some confusion in the lobby; interrupting,
Hau sarek said tho convention probably was not
in a spirit at this time to hear a speech on the po
litical situation, and bo was not prepared, and
proposed to suspend. Cries go on, go on. The
chair called for order in tho lobbies. Haussarek
proceeded to read hi oration. 1
General John M. Palmer of Illinois, wis called.
Mr. Palmer deplored tha election of Johu3on and
the failure of tbe impeachment. Johnson stood in
the way of the country, and should bave been re
moved. Great cheering. Impeachment was a sub
stitute by modes of civilization for revolution and
do apitation. Johnson was an obstruction and
should tavo been removed. Renewed cheers. But
we nsw propose to fubinit theSa Unes again to
the people for their dacisn at tbe ballot-box, and
obtain a verdict which shall place these questions
beyond all dispute. He urged an open, clear, certain
platform, which shall leave no doubt as to its pur
pose or meaning ; and in conclusion, urged such
nomination for Vice Pesidant ai shall leave no
temptation nor auassinatien of-Grant. Cheers.
If the Baltimore Convention had made no mistake
in 1S64, Abraham Lincoln woaid be ia Washington
to welcome Grant on fourth of March next. Ureat

resolutions appeared ani reported tha. following
1. We congratulate tho country on the assured
succouoftke reconstruction policy of Congre3 , as
evidenced by the adoption in a majority of the
States lately ia rebellion ; of the constitutions se
curing equal oivil and political rights te all, and
regard it as tbe duty of the Government to sustain
these constitutions and prevent tha people of such
States from being remitted to ay-state of anarchy or
2. The euarrantee by Oonrjess 0 f equal suffrage
to all loyal men in the South was demanded by
every consideration cf pablio safety aad gratitude,
and of justice, and must be maintained; while the
question of suffrags ln loyal States properly be
longs to the people of those States.
3. We deneunce all forms of repudiation as a
national crime, and national honor requires the
payment of public indebtedness in the utmost good
taiih to our creditors at horns" and abroad, not only
according to the letter, but spirit of tho laws under
w rrv . . m-m vwmwwum . . . . .
4. It is due to the labor of tho nation that tax
ation should be equalised and reduced as rapaidly
as the national fai&h will permit.
5tb. The national debt, constructed as it has been
for the preservation of the anion for ail time to
come, should be extended over a fair period :or re
demption, and it is the duty of Congress to reduce
tha rale of interest thereon whenever ii can ba
6 th. That the best policy to diminish our burden
of debt is so. to improve our credit that capitalists
will seek to lend us m ney at lower rates of inter
ett tj.m we now pay. and must continue to pav so
long as repudiution partial or total open or covert
is threatened orsuspected (app'aaie).
7th. The government of the Uni tet States shou'd
be administered with studied economy. The cor
ruption htch have been so hm 'fuily nurd ancr
foctered by Andrew Johnson call loudly for radical
reform, (loud cheers:).
8th. We prefo'indiy deplore the untimely and
tragic desUh of Abraham Lincoln, a$i- regret the
accession ef Andrew Joliuson to the Presidency
who has acted treacherously to th paop e who clear
ed biin, and the causa he wasl.db-od to support,
hrts uurprd higli legisUtive aad judicial funo'.i'.ns,

office to in iuce thr officers to v o!at Iaws, hs
employed his executive power to ren der insecure the
lives, prurty. peace, liberty and I ifo of our citinui,
has abused the prdning power, has deiounoed
the entire legislation as unconstitutional, has per
sistency and habitually resisted by every mean in
his power every proper attempt at the reconstruction
of the states lately in rebellion, has perverted tbe
public patronage into an engine of wholesale cor
ruption, and cas beea justljimpeached for high
crimes and misdemeanors, (good g od.).
9th. The d trine of Great Britain and other
European powers, that because man is onee a
subject he is always so, must be resisted at every
hazz.ird by the United States, as a relic of the
feudal timertot authorised by the law of nations
an 1 at war with our national honor acd independ

rest or iroprigou ment by foreign powers for acts doo
or words spoken in this country ; and if so arrested
and imprisoned it i3 the duty of the Government
to interfere in his. behalf.
10ih. Of all who were faithful in tho trials of
tbe late war, there were none entitled to more ei
pecial honor than tbe brave soldiers nd seamen who
endured tbe hardships of the ctmp and cruise, and
imperiled their lives in the service of the country.
Tha bounties aal pension approoriatad by law
for these brave defenders ef the Union are obliga
tions never to be forgotten. (Cheers.). Tho wid
ows and orphans of the gallant dead are tbe wards
of tbe. people, a sacred legucy bequeathed to the
United Stitec protecting care. (Applause.)
11th. Foreign emigration, which ia the past
has added so much to the wealth and increased tho
resources of this nation, tho asylum of all nations,
should be restored bv a liberal and just policy.
12th. This convention declares its sympathy
with all oppressed peopla who are struggling for
The following are the supplementary resolutions
