Creed Hnjmond uses mid aslts for the

Blaino's ii.iiiio is evidently held
in icservo. Connecticut presents the
imnio of Ilnwluy , but makes no
1 speech. Ihcro is feeble nppl.iuso , whicli nt
onto dies out. Tlio secictnry stops at the
niuno of Illinois and the Gresliam boomers
got in their work. The waves of applause
roll and break against the walls of the audi
torium. Leonard Swell's ' speech is rather
disappointing. With closed eyes the auditor
might imagine ho was listening to a sermon.
IJia first mention of Grcsham's uaino brings
down the galleries of course , but there is no
response in the convention itself. The dem
onstration is not up to expectation and muiks
another step in the' or Tiir. nncsiiiM DOOM.
As Sw olt's speech proceeded the audience
became restive. Tlioro was n little applause.
rinallyloud calls of time came from the
galleries and the speaker closed. Tlioro was
n painful effort to protract the applause at
the end , but it failed. Frank Davis , of
Minnesota , in seconding the nomination ,
scored a greater success. A clear voice , n
line presence , and a well composed speech ,
combined to hold attention. It was i hotori
cil , and its rounded periods caught the
crowd. Hut oven Davis failed to evoke the
expected ovation Davis' peroration
evoked the flist hearty Gicsham
demonstration of the day. The applause

CHICAGO , Juno 21. Not more than
half the delegates wcro in their
seats when the convention wns
called to order at 10 05. Chairman Esteo
was evidently determined to rush business.
After a short prayer the call of the states for
members of the national committee began.
Nebraska named Judge Hobertson of Nor
folk in place of Chuich Howe. Senator
Quay took the lead of Pennsylvania na
tional politics as ho desoi ved ; Wood of Vir
ginia , who was given the seat in the Ninth

like conciliation , ns Wise con

was passed in the call. The band plays
u lively air while waiting for the com
mittees to icport , a pause , and Major Mo-
Kinloy , of Ohio , rises. A tempest of cheers
follows the announcement of his name and
a volume of applause accomp inies him to the
platfoiin. lie reads in a clear , imging voice
the declaration of principles. Reference to
the icpublican leaders nnd to homo tula
bring out chteis , but the llrst allusion to the
tariff creates n thunderous round of cheers
amid which the cntiio convention rises to its
foot , the galleries , stage and platform join
ing , hats , fans , oven coats , commingling in
mad confusion.
The issue is fairly Joined. The platform
demands the maintenance of the protective
punciploas such , and the repot t of the in-
tcinaliovcnuo taxes necessary to that end.
As clearly defined is the issue it makes for
a fi co ballot , for coist defenses , for the 10-
Jcction of the llsheiics treaty , for the
Isthmus canals , and for the encouragement
of the shipping interests. The platform is
caiefully worded , and its phrases arc terse ,
pointed nnd citch the audience. Every par
agraph is giccted with cheers.

We denounce the Mills' bill ns destructive
o general business , labor , and the farming

ndorso the consistent nnd pitrlotlc action of

the proposition of the dcmocintic party to
[ ilaco wool on the free list nnd wo insist that
the duties theicon shall bo adjusted and
maintained so ns to furnish full nnd adequate
pi election to that Industry.
The republican party would effect nil
needed reduction of the national revenue by
tope-allng the taxes on tobacco , which aio an
arrogance and burden to agriculture , and the
tax upon spirits used In the ai la and for mc-
chanical purposes , and by such revision of
the tariff laws as will tend to check Imports of
such articles as are produced by our people ,
the pioduetlon of which gives employment
to our Itbor , and release from Import duties
these ai tides of foreign production , except
luxurie , the ilko of which cannot bo produced

enuuthan Isiequlsite for the wants of gov
ernment , of Intel mil tnxes rather than sun on-
tier any p.utof our piotcctivo system nt the
Joint behest of the whisky ilng mid agents
of foreign manufacturers.
Wo dcclaio our hostility to the introduc
tion into this country of foieign contract
labor and of Chinese labor alien to our civili
sation nnd our constitution , and wo demand
the rigid cnfotcement of existing laws
against it and favor such immodl ito legis
lation ns will exclude such labor from our
shores. t
We declare our opposition to all combina
tions of capital organised In tuists or other
wise to control arbitrarily the condition of
ti ado amongour citizens and wo recommend to
congi ess and the state legislatui es in their re
spective jurisdictions such legislation ns will
pi event the execution of all schemes to op
press the people by undtio chugcs on their
supplies or by unjust rates forthotranspoita-
ti < m of their products to maikct.
Wo approve legislation by congress to pre
vent alike unjust bunions nnd unfair dis
crimination between states.
We rcafllun tiio policy of appropriating the
public lands of the United States to be home
steads for American citizens and settlers not
aliens , whicli the republican party established
in IfcOJ against the persistent opposition of
the democrats in congrcsSjWhich Imsbiought
our gicit wcstein domain into mngnitlccnt
development. Tlio restoration of uncaincd
land grants to the public domain for the use
of actual settlers , whicli was begun under
the admlulstiatlon of President Arthur ,
should bo continued. Wo deny that the dem
ocratic paity has over icstorcd one aero to
the people , but declaio that by the Joint ac
tion of republicans utul democrats
about fifty million ncics of un
caincd lands originally granted for
the construction ot niilroads huvo been
restored to the public domain in pursuance
of conditions insetted by the icpubhcan
party in the 01 iginal grants. Wo charge the
democratic administration with failuio to
execute laws seeming to scttleis title to
their homesteads and with using nppiopua-
tions made for that purpose to haiiass inno
cent settlers with spies nnd piosccutions
urdcr the false pretense of exposing frauds
and vindicating the law.
AIIMISSIOV or TtnniToiiir.s.
Thego\einment by congress of the terri-
toi ics is based upon necessity only to the end
that they may become states in the
union : therefore , whenever the conditions
of population , material resources , public
intelligence ar.d morality are such as to in-
suio stable local government therein , the
people of such teintones should be per
mitted , a right inherent m them , to form for
themselves constitutions and state govern
ments and be admitted into the union. Pend
ing prcpaiation for statehood all oflljeis
thereof should bo selected from bonn lido
residents andcitizensof the territory wherein
they aio to servo. South Dakota should of
ught bo immediately admitted as a state in
the union under the constitution framed and
adopted by her people , and wo heaitily
endorse the action of the republican senate
in twice passing bills for her admission. The
lufusal of the democratic house ot represen
tatives , for partisan purposes , to favoiably
consider these bills is a willful violation of
the bacicd American principle of local self-
go\ eminent , and meiits the condemnation of
all Just men. Tlio pending bills in the senate
lor acts to enable the people of Washington ,
Noith Dakota and Montana tciritones to
form constitutions and establish state gov-
cinmcnts should be passed without unneces
sary delay. The republican party pledges
itself to do all in its power to facilitate the
admission of the tciiitoiies of New Mexico ,
W\oming , Idaho and Aibona to the enjoy
ment of self govei nment as states. Such of
them as are now qualified us soonaspossib c ,
andotheis as soon as they may become so.
The political power of the Mormon church
in the territories ns cxcicised in the past is a
menace to free institutions too dangt-ious to
be long suffered. Tnereforo wo pledge the
icpnbllcan party to nppioprinto legislation ,
asseitmg the sovereignty of the n ition in
all the teiritoi ies whet o the same is qucs
tioncd , and in furtherance of that end to
place uiion the statute boons legislation
stiingcnt enough to dlvoico political from
ecclesiastical power , and thus stamp out the
attendant wickedness of polygamy.
The icpublican paity is in laver of the use
of both gold and silver as money , nnd con
demns the policy of the democratic ndminis
stration In its clToits to demonetize silver.
Wo demand the reduction of letter postage
to 1 cent per ounce.
In n republio Ilko ours , whcro
the citizen is the sovereign and tno ofllcial
the servant , whcro no power Is cxeiciseil
except by the will of the people ,
it is Important that the sovereign
people should possess intelligence. The fieo
buhool is tiio piomoter of that Intelligence
which is to pioscivo us u free nation. Theio-

Wo earnestly iceommend that promnt

CIVIL sr.uvicn HKIOUM.
The men who abandoned the icpublican
paity in l SI nnd continue to ndhero to the
democintic party have deserted not only the
cause of honest government , of sound
finance , of freedom and puiit.v of the ballot ,
but especially have descited the cause of re-
foim in the civil service. Wo will not fail to
keep our pledges because they hnvo
broken theirs , or because their cadldato
has broken his. Wo therefore re | > cut
our declaration of 18S4 , to wit : The reform
of civil service auspiciously begun under 10-
publican administration should bo completed
by a further extension of the reform system
already established by law to all ciadcs of
the service to which it is applied. The
spit it nnd purpose of reform should
be observed In all executive appointments ,
and nil laws at variance with thoobject of ex
isting reform legislation should bo lupcaled
nnd that the dangers to free institutions
which lurk in the power of ofllcial pation-
ago may bo wisely and effectively avoided.
The gratitude of the nation to the defend
ers of the union cannot bo assured except by
laws. The legislation of congress should
confoi into the pledges made by a loval people
ple , and be so cnlniged and extended as to
piovido against the possibility that any
man who honorably Woie the federal unl
foim shall become an Inmate of an almshouse -
house or dependent upon private charity. In
thopicscnco of an overflowing trcnsuiy it
would bo a public scandal to do less for
these whoso valorous sei vice prcseivcd the

spuit shown by President Cleveland in
his numerous vetoes of measuics for pension
lelief , nnd the action of thn democratic
house of representatives In icfusing even
consideration of geneial pension legislation.
In support of the principles herewith enun
ciated , we invite the co-operation of pats lotic

Cmciao , Juno 21. At 11:13 : the loll of
states was called for nominations.
Mr. Waincr of Connecticut , when Con
necticut was called , presented , without
further remarks , the name of the Hon. Joseph
K. Hawlcy.
When Illinois was reached Leonard Swett
arose and commenced a speech nominating
Gresliam for president. At the mention of
Grcsham's name there was loud applause
from the galleries and some of the delega
tions on the floor.
Swctt , in placing Gresliam in nomination ,
said the present convention recalled n scene
enacted in this city twenty-bight years ngo.
J'hat was the second national republican con
vention and the llrst nomination of Abinhnm
Lincoln. At his inauguration the republican
party first assumed the reins of go vein-
mental contiol With unimportant inter
ruptions the democratic party had controlled
our national policy for thiity-two years The
country in I'-Ol stood upon Uio verge of polit
ical and financial rum , and the sharpest and
most deadly conflict of aims evei known suc
ceeded. Wo have had of i cpublican rule
since then , four jeais of war and
twenty jears of peace. Tlio four
jears of war pioduccd heroes , sacrifices and
sufferings without parallel and reunited the
countiy. Tlio twenty jears of peace in
creased the population , internal imiuove-
nients , manufactories , comforting homes and
a general development of nil classes with n
inpidltv unequalled in the history of the
world within the time n imcd Wo have
again assembled to select a president for the
00,00 ) ,000 of free people Who mot in char
acter is the very essence of thcso people !
Who of all the names suggested will diaw
most largely fiom all classes ! \Vlio can best
bring together und reunite the broken fiag-
me-nts of our own party I Who by personal
courage and sublime .confidence in his con
victions is the ideal leader of the American
people ? Who most stiikingly stands for cos
mopolitan Amciican character i Thcso are
the questions of the hour addressed to us all
I suggest the name of Walter Q Gioslmmol
Indiana and Illinois , nnd invite thoughtful
consideration to bonio reasons why ho should
bo nominated.
Mr. Swctt then proceeded to give the
biogiaphy of Grcslmm , in which ho spoke ol
his humble origin , tils early dcslio for educa

Gieshum had always stood witii
his party , had advocated lib-
01 al pensions for disabled nnd
dependent soldiers , nnd the strength of his
candidacy lies in the public belief that he
will never bieak his promises , and if elected
would manage public affairs with the same
honesty whicli has eharaeteitzcd his past his
tory Mr. Davison of Minnesota , seconded
Giesham's nomination. Ho said that ho
came fiom a state which had no favorite son ,
but which iCBpondcd with spontnncty to the

Ho was followed at 11 : f > S by John H Lj iich

If wo do , wo shall succeed. If wo fail to

feat before the orgam/ed appetite for spoils
and its allies. The candidate ; of this coin en

an unblemished political iccoul. Ho must
be a man in whoso minor of Intcgiit.v
there is no flaw or ciovasso for
the lodgment of censure or calumny. Ho
must bo a man versed in public
business , schooled in the public seivico , fit
ted for the high office to which wo consecrate

It is the prajer of that htato

All the otheis have somcalmcs wavered

Vou would not find in his letter of accept

CHICAGO , June 'Jl - When Michigan was
icaehcd Chaiiman Herr of that delegation
aiose and said that M.diican hud a candi
date who would be presented by Mr. U. 11.
Titi/cr of Detiolt ,
When Mr. Pra/er mounted the platfoim
thcic was aciy from the gullci ice of "What's
tU matter with Alucf < " tmd JLo popular 10-
* ponso , "He's all right , " in an cvldcntlj
convulsive choius , nt which the convention
exploded In n burst of lauplitor. In present *
ing General Algor's ' name , Michigan , Mr.
Prarcr said , came Into the republican con
vention for the lint time in its history to
nsk n favor. Michigan had always
proved true to the republican party nnd !
alwajs would bo true Now , when the re
publican purty needed help , Michigan coma
hero to provide the waj s and means of turn
ing the democratic party out of power.
Michigan had no charges to bring against
nny of the men who wcro pioposed for the
nomination. Tho-'weio nil true nnd tried
republicans but the nvallibillty of the man to
be selected must bo considered. The candi
date which Michigan would propose wns n
man whj could icceivo the vote of the rich
and of the poor , of the white and of the
black The rich men ti listed him because ho
wns a man of business and force , and his
honoi nlw aj s was and alwaj R would bo un
questioned. If the gentlemen thought ho vvni
not the f i lend of llio poor let them go to De
troit nnd eater the jwor men's homes and
mention the Michigan candidate aud they
would find next to the name of God was the
name of General Uusiqll A. Alger.
The spcnkei was hcio Interrupted by an
outburst of stormy applause. The Alger
cij , wltiili has been heard frequently
aiound the aieetsof Chicago , of "What's
the matter with Alger , " was snouted front
oiiegnlleij' , only to iccelve from the oppo
site I'allcry the answer , "Ho's all light , "
whllo ono enthusiast In the upper tier of gal-
lei Ies divested himself of his coat , and ,
swinging It aiound his head , pioposed three
chceis for AlRor , whicli wcio given with a
will. Continuing Mr. Prazler pointed out
the Hticngtb Unit Algcr would secuio from
the soldier voto. Theio was not , ho said , a
soldier in the nation who was better beloved
by the tank and llio of the Grand Army of
the Republic than iho man whom Michigan
picscntcd. His bravery was written on the
blood stained pages of history. Michigan
presented a business man. This was to bo a
business man's campaign. If the battle waste
to bo fought on the ground of piotection , lot
the lawjeis look after their fees after
the contest , hut let business men do
the light ing now. In conclusion Mr Frarcr
alluded to Algci's vvinm filcndshlp for
General Locnn , and declared a nmis wno was
tine to his fiieads could bo tiustworthy to
his country
As Mr. Purer stepped fiom the platform
airain the Algcr ciy went up mid it was some
moments befoio the uproai < ould bo checked.
Mr Chailes.l Voyes of Massachusetts foi
lowed Mr l'iaei in a second of the nomina
tion of Gcnciat Alpcr Ho thought that it
was cinlncntlj * becoming that the icpublican
party had decked this building with the stars
and stiip-s in the fncoof the adoption bj' the
democratic party as its banner of an old
man'K ' snuff lag Hut no candidate , who had
or would bo presented to this convention , had
a better chum upon the Imnnei s w lilch deco-
into these halls than had the soldier wnoso
nomination the speaker was pioud to second.
Ho combines in him tlioso qualities which
iceommend him to the hens ts and convictions
of | > coi > lo Ho Is a man with the couiago of
his convictions and the executive ability
to fully meet evcrj' lequliemont of
thopicsiclencv. If piotection is to bo the
issue , who is better equipped to sustain that
issue than one who knows all the piactical
details of the question. Gcnoinl ) had
saved the state of Michigan from the enemy
and lie could icdeein the i ountrj from the
mlc of the democratic paity at Washington.
The speaker was glud to extend the hand of
fellowship aud aid from New England to the
giand noithwest. bomo people tnlitod of
nominating a man fiom a doubtful state.
What the convention wants is the m in who
can make all the states mi vthing but doubt
ful , and Gencial Alger was such u man.
Patiiek Hgim of Nubiuska also seconded
the nomination and referred to Algcr as a
man who would maintain the honor of the
honor of the United States at homo and
nbinad , and who would icscnt any indignity
to the Amei lean flag. Ho seconded Algcr's.
nomination because ho believed that when
nominated Geneial Alper moved with the in
domitable clash , peisovcionee and good luck
whicli alwnvs eliaiacteri/cd his undoi takings
in win and in commerce us in politics , carry
the cause of his party to a gloi lous victoiy.
[ Applause. ]
Mr. Hstco of Noith Caiolina also seconded
Gencial Algcr's nomination Ho spoke of
the love of Uio great generals of the war for
Algcr , of Lincoln's tsust hi him and of his
deeds of chanty and gcnoiositv. Glvo us
