Wo are here axain to d oli^re the prlnclpleB ot the party. That we will make a good tloicot la (ertain from the Hat of names bsforo it, and If It -was necessary to drop all the pames now be-foro it, we could stiU make an able ticket from the republicans of any county In the state. Nor need there be any dlAcuity in thj flrit duty of declaring a platform of principles if wo adbera to the rale and bottom t'.ie platform on principle! and not on ^expediency, it Is always expedient to be right, but It la not always right to be expedient. - Loj^ tbs platform be mode for principles and not merely to catch votea. Such a p'.attorm never was honest, it never permanently won, aiad It never will. With an honest platform and auch a ticket as we shall make, there need be no fear by dof( at in November. I^et no one bo terrified by the accident o a partial defeat in 168D. If there ia any Inspired idiot who so fears the coming contest, lot him be stuffed for on owl and placed in some national museuni. We are a party that la not ashamed of iti paat; wabave no time to devote to a funeral MaronrbfatoiT. I have foil eonMeneo that tke-cojtkot ttala couTentlon will be a tesnlt which-will give full hope and conCdenoo of the Bacceaa of republican principlea.
