WASHINO.IOX , July 21. The following is
General Logan's latter accepting thu nomi
nation : i
WAHHINOTON , D. C , July 10 , 18S4 Dear
Sir : Having received from you on the 21th of
Juno the official notification of my nomination
Iif the national republican com rait too as the
republican candidate for vice president of tliu
United Stater , atuT considering it to ha the
duty of every man devoting himself to the
public uervioo to UBDUUIO nuy position to which
ha may be cilled by the voice of hia country
men , I accept the nomination with a grateful
heart and a deep sense of its roupjnsibihtlej ;
and if elected shall endeavor to discharger the
dutio ? of theollicoto the best of my anility.
This honor , as is well understood , was wholly
unsought by me. That it was tendered by the
representatives of the party in a manner so
fiattering will servo to lighten whatever
labors 1 may bo called nuou to perform.
Although the variety of subjects covered ia
.tho very excellent nud vigorous declaration of
principles adopted by the late convention
prohibits , up > n an ocasiou calling for brevi
ty of oipresaiou , tlut full elaboration of
which they nro susceptible , I avail myself
of party usaga to signify my aporoval of the
various resolutions of tlio platform , and to
discuss them brietly.
Ths rsiolutlons oftho platform declaring
for such duties to aiford security to our
dirersifiod industries , protection to the rights
And wages of labor , to the end that active and
intelligent labor , as well as capital , tuny have
itajuit award and the laboring man bU full
share in the national prosperity , meets my
hearty approval.
If there bo a nation on the face of the oartb
which might , if it were n desirable thing ,
build a wall upon its every boundary Hue ,
deny communion to nil the world , and proceed -
coed to live upon its own resources and pro
ductions , that country iajtho United States.
There is hardly a necessity of civilized com
munities which can not bo produced from
the extraordinary resources of our several
states and territories with their manufactories ,
mines , farms , timber lands and water ways.
This circnutancc , tnkeu in connection with
the fact that our form of government Is
entirely unique among the nations of tlio
world , makes it utterly absutd to institute
-comparisons between our own economic sys
tems and those of other government ! ,
and especially to attempt to borrow BJ-H-
toms from them. Wo stand nlono In 'our
circumstances , our forces , our possibilities ,
and our aspirations. In nil successful gov
ernments it is a prime rormiiito that capital
and labor should bo upon thu hot terms and
that both&ihould enjoy the highwt attainable
prosperity. If there tie n disturbance of the
just balance between them , ono or the other
imlTorH and dissati3fation folloirs , which is
harmful to both. Thu Itsaons furbished by a
hUtory of our own national lifo have luen too
much overlooked by our people. The
fundamental article in th old democratic
creed proclaimed almost abao ute free trade ,
and this , too , no more than a quarter of a
century ogo. The low condition of our
national credit , tha financial and bnilneia un
certainties , and general lacV of proiporlty un
der th t system , can bo remembered by ovury
man now in middle lifo although in great
number of reforms instituted by the republican
party aufilcient credit lus not been pullicly
awuided to tlut of taritf reform. Its benefits
hare nevertheless been felt throughout the land

Tlia national convention , In view of the spe
cial dangers menacing the wool Interests of the
United States , deemed it wise to nJopt sopn-
rate resolutions on the nubjoct of it * proper

lions not in competition wlth.our our own , thus
not only building up our foreign oomuiorco ,
but taking measures to carry it 'on our own
bottoms. Difficult ru thii work hppoara , and
really in , it ia suscoptlblo of accomplishment
by patiuut nnd lutolllgont labor , and to 116
hands can it bo committed with ns
assurance of success ta to thoao of 'tho ' republican
lican party.
The Hoimbllcan party Is th ? , umliiputnblo
author of the financial monetary tysteni
which it la safe to say haa never before been
oaualloil by that of any otlior nation. Under
the oporatiou of our Hystcni of finance , the
country was dafoly carried through an 01 tend
ed and oxponslvd war , wlth'u nation * ! credit
which has riaou higher wjth oach. auccedlng
year , until now the credit of the United
Btatoa la surpascd by that of no otlior nation ,
while its securities , at n constantly increasing
promliim , are eagerly sought after by invest
ors in all _ parts of the world. _ Our system of
currency is tlio most ndviiablo iu construction ,
whllo all convonloncieA of bill circulation at
tach to It. IJTory dollar of paper represents a
dollar of the world's money , standard ; nnd as
long as the just and wise policy of the repub
lican party id continued , there can bo no i in-
pftirmcnt of the national crodit. Therefore
imd&r the present laws relating thereto , it will
ho impossible for any man to lose it penny In
bonds or .bills of tin United States or in billa
of the ratio 3al banks. The advantage of hav
ing a bauic note iu tiio house which will bo as
good in the morning as It was the eight bo
foro. should bo appreciated by all.
The Convertibility of the currency should
bo maintained intact , and the
establishment of an international
standard among all commercial nations , filing
the relative values of gold aud silver coinage
would bo a moaauro of peculiar advantage. '
The subjects embraced iu the resolutions
respectively looking to tha promotion of our
ntor-stato and foreign commerce , nnd to the
matter of oor foreign relations ore fraught
with great importance to our people. In
espact to inter-atoto commerce , there Is much
, o bo desired iu the way of equitable rotes and
acilities for transportation , that commerce
may flow freely to the btitcs themselves , 'the
diversity of industries and employments bo
iromotou iu all sections of our country , nnd
tha great granaries and manufacturing
establishments of the interior may bo enabled ,
to send their product ! to the seaboard for
shipment to foreign countries , Relieved of
vexatious restrictions nud discriminations in
natters of which it nay emphatically be said ,
'tiino is money , " and also of unjust charges
luon articles destined to moot close competi-
ion from the products of other parts of the
As to our foreign commerce , the enormous
rrotvth of our industries , and our mirprioinir
inxluctlous of cereals and other noceisitius of
ife , Imperatively require that immediate and
effective means bo taken through peaceful , or-
ierly and connervatlvo methods to open mar-
cets. which have been , and1 are now monopo-
Ized largely by other nations. This inoro
mrticulorly relates to
otm BISTER nEi'unuca
of Spanish America as also to our friends the
jeoplo of the Brazilian Empire. The rrpnb
icrof Spanith America are allio.1 to us by the
eldest and wannest feelings , bxeed upon n
similarity of institutions nud government ,
common aspirations and mutual hopes. The
'Groat Republic , " as they proudly term the
Jnitcd States , is looked upon by their people
ple with affectionate admiration , nnd as a
model for them to build upon , and wo should
cultivate between thorn nnd ourselves closer
commercial relations , which will blhd nil to-
jether by ties of friendly intercourse and rnu-
.ual advantage. Further than this , being
small commonwealths in the military and
mval Bensu of European powers , they
ook to us sa , at least , as a moral
defender against n system of territorial and
otlior encroachments which , aggressive In the
list , has not bean abandoned at this day ,
diplomacy and intrigue have done much moro
o wrest the commerce of Spanish America
rom the United States than has legitimate
commciclal competition. Politically , wo should
jo bound to the republics ot our continent by
, ho closott ties nd communication. Ships
and railroad * should bo encouraged to the
'ullestiiosslbloextent [ consistent with a wise
and conservative public policy. Above all ,
wo should bo upon such terms of frioiKJuhip
ts to preclude tbo possibility of n national inid-
mdurstundings between ourselves nnd any
iiomborH of the American republican family. ,
riio beat method to promote uninterrupted
juaco between ono and nil would bo in the
netting of a general conference or congress , i
whereby an agreement to submit all inter
national dilfereuces to til ) peaceful decision
of friendly arbitration might bd reached. An
agreement of this kind would give
.a . our ulster republics confidence in each

intent the advantfld thought nf the world at

ty , and tbu % laid the brii of our r > r n < at re-
pnblle. VThllu teJmlc lly n govrmment of
the ptopU , It was in Htrictne s only a govern-
ina of portion of the people , excluding from
nil participation a certain other portion held
la the conditltn of abtolate , de xitlc end
hop leti servitude , Iko parallel to bich , for
tuneUly , doe not now exist In any niorlivr :
cLrutlAU uatlou. With the culuiiuation , how
over , of another cycle of advanced thought ,
the American republic suddenly assumed the
full character of n government of the holc
people , aud four million humnn croaluros
emerged from the condition of bondsmen to
the full t tn of freemen , theoretically in
vested with thn ( iimu chll nnd political
rights poMoased by their former masters. Tlio
ititaoqucnt leKinlntion guaranteed wns
by every legal tltlo of clUzeushlp aud full
ciuality ] before the law In nil re. pocl to this
previously disfranchised people and amply
covers rcqulri'mont * nnd Bocnren to them , so
far ns Ingulatlon can , thu privilege of Ameri
can citizenship. Hut the disagMoablo fact of
the cone , is thnt while theoretically , we nro In
the enjoyment of n government by the whole
people , prnctcnlv ! ! wo nro almost 0.1 far from
It as wo were In the nntl-bclllum days of the
republic. There nro but a few leading and In *
dUputablo facts which cover the whole ftUto-
mcnt of the cage. In many southern states
Uiocolortvl _ population is in largo excess of
white. The colored people are republican * ,
as are also a connldorablo | x > rtion ot the white
people. The remaining portion of the latter
are democrats , In the fooaof this Incontosti-
bio truth these plates Invatiably return doino-
cratto majorities. Iu other etatos of the south'
the colored people , although not n majority
from n very considerable body of the popula
tion , nnd with whlto republicans nro numeri
cally in excess of the democrats , yet iirccwoly
the eamo political result obtnini , the demo
cratic party invariably carrying elections. It
is not even thought advisable to rdlow nn oc-
c.inlouanl or unimportant election to bo car-
ri d by republicans as n "blind" or on n stroke
of finesse. Careful nnd impartial investiga
tion has shown these results to follou- _ the
systematic e.xorcisoot physical intimidation
nnd violence , coiijurod with the most shamo-
fill dovicoj over practiced in the name of free
elections. So confirmed has this result become
that wo nro brought face to face with the ox-
traordlnnry political fact that .the democratic
liarty of the nouth relics nlmoat entirely upon
the method stated for snccoss in the national
election. This unlawful puiBuasion of the
popular franchise , which 1 desire to stale dis
passionately nnd In a manner comporting
with the proper dignity of the
occasion , ia ono ot deep gravity
to the American people In rt double xango.
First , it is in violation , open , direct and flag
rant , of the primary principle upon which our
government is supposed to rest , viz. , that the
control of the povcrnmout it participated in
by all legally qualified citizens in accordance
with the plan of popular govenimcnt , that ma
jorities must rule in the decision of nil ques
tions. Second , it is in violation of the rights
aud interests of the ( tales wherein nro par
ticularly centered the great wealth nnd in
dustries of the nation , nud which p y nu over
whelming portion of the national tnxcs. The
immense nggregation of Interests embraced
within nnd tlio enormously preater ] > opulation
of tiicao other elates of the union
ire subjected every four years to the daubers
> f a wholly fraudulent show of numerical
strength. Under this system minorities
actually attempted to direct the course of
notional alfairs , and though up to this tiino
BiiccesK has not attended their efforts to elect
t president , yet success lias boon BO perilously
mminent as to encourage a repetition of .the
effort nt each quidrieunial election , nud
jubject the interests of an overwhelming ma-
ority of cur people , north nnd south ,
, o the hazards of illegal subvonion. The
stereotyped argument In refutation of these
> lain truths is that if the republican ulemeut
wus really iu the majority they could not bo
ileprived of their rights and privileges by a
minority , but neither by statistics of popula
tion nor by the unavoidable logic can the situ
ation bo over-ridden. The colored people of
, ho south have recently emerged from the
jondage of their proiont political ppprpssors.
Tney have had but few advantages of educa
tion which might ouablo them to compete
with the whites. As I have heretofore main
lined , In order to achieve the ideal perfection
of popular government it IB absolutely neces
sary that thu masses should bo educated. This
proposition npplim itself with full force to
the colored people of the south , They must
lave better educational advantages and thus
jo enabled to become the Intellectual Deere of
, ber ! wbl to brethren , as many of'them already'
are. A liberal school system should bo pro
vided for the generations of the south , and
the colored people bo made as capable of ex
ercising the duties of electors ai the whlto
joojile. In the meantime it is the duty of the
lational government to go beyond resolutions
and declarations on the _ subject
nud to take such action as may bo In its pow
er to secure the absolute freedom of national
elections everywhere ; to that end our congress
may cease to contain members representing
ilctltiouH majorities of their people , thus inis-
llrocting the popular will concerning national
opialtttion , and especially to the end that In
presidential contexts the great business and
other interests of the country may not bo
) laced in fpar and trembling lest an unicrupu-
OUH minority ehould succeed in stilling the
wishes of the majority. In accordance with
.he ppirlt of the last resolution of the Chicago
ilatform meaiurtH should be taken at once to
remedy this great evil.
Under our liberal Institutions subjects and
citizens of every nation hnva been welcomed
.o bourns in our midst ; and , in compliance with
air laws , toco-oparationwith our oovBrnmont.
While it is the r > olicy of the republican party
, o encourage the oppressed of otlior nation ! ) ,
ind oiler thorn facilitiivi for becoming uso-
ul and intelligent citizens In the legal
jelinition of the turm , the party has never
3'jutemplntBd the ndmiinionof n claw of servile
leoiilo who are not only unable to comprehend
3iir institution' , but imlisjHjbed to become part
Df our national family or embrace any higher
jivilizatiou than their own. To annilt
well immigrants would only bo ( to throw
i retarding olcment into the very path of
jur progress. Our legislation should bo
imply protective ntfiiiuxt this danger , and
f nut Nuflicontly BO now should bo madatio

riondly powers.
