no right to select any other than the men nominated by I have always been a hut when I llua llepublicnns In league with Democrats In Kings County forthe purpose of changing the delegates in three

the safety of the nation is again imperilled by the virulent and un lawful efforts of the Democratic party to overawe ana subvert State as represented by the its leaders In Maine and in several of the Southern thereby Intended to secure con trol of the General Government by deeds o vio lence and fraud and in defianceot carefully con stituted Judicial In the presence of ihese gravo and threatening dangers it is the duty of the Republican party of tBe In Its united to meet and prevent them and to this mindful ol their great responsibility In the coming Presidential centest and of the fact that It must be determined by the electoral vote of tlielr they hereby solemnly pledge to tue Repub licans ol other States their ability to cast It for Ulysses We declarethat in him we repose absolute

and because we are satlslled that in him the North and decidedly greet a candidate deserving of Its we present him as entitled to the suffrages of every patriotic We also de clare that the objection to a third Presidential term applies only to a third consecutive and is utterly inapplicable to the reelection ot General who Is and has been a private absent from the destitute of all Presi dential or official influence or and whose election must be by the free choice of the by those Influences which alone give if any there to that objection there That the Republicans of New Yorlc believe the

that the Important questions presented by this resolution and the amendment should be disposed of entirely after hearing from a gentleman who represents a constituency which has fifty or Democratic majority behind hut that this question should be settled by the He publican counties of tho I want to Hear from the Republican counties ol the and I am prepared to vote in this conven tion and not only cordially but In the bellel that their Judgment is with the ma jority ot the Republican I great doubts of the soundness of Re publican poutlcianswho come from districts which cost a Democratic vote and who are in affiliation with John Kelly or Boss 1 apprehend that such kinds of alliances lor Re publicans tend to Introduce the tactics of those two bosses and that sort of management in the Republican party where it does not I understand that this convention has ratified the acts of the districts and of the committees in respect to the county of I warn gentlemen thatthey look to it that

Let me ask the question as to New Have the Republicans of New York no opinion In the presence of such a among the men Republi cans can Is most certain to be elected most certain to be lawfully and peaceably seMcd after he Is elected lor what is this conyenUon held Is It merely to listen while the delegates from several Congressional districts Inform tin convention who the districts arc going 10 send to the National Js It for Unit that 500 the selected pride of the Republican partv of have come Jiero to meet together I think Common and usages o both parties answer the Isthe ofllceof a delegate Is It a man to go to a convention representing others and then determine us he individually prefers and chooses what he will do 1 President a delegate Is an He hus a principal behind if he IB faithful Ue noes to represent that My honorable friend ircm Senator nods and I expected to hear from us I did with pleas that ir he accepted the commission ot a con vention which uad indicated what he was to would never violate that let me say frankly or myself that if any however re spect were presented to this convention who would declare or who would prove recreant to Its let alone Its I would never vote lor him us a delegate to any we are here to express to Republicans in other States who are longing to know the Judgment of the Republicans ol New If we are here to express to them our opinion In this and If delegations ire to go to represent not tlielr own will but the will and Judgment ot those behind what Is the whift wfltild be the cowardice of our mnniully saying what we believe Next year we win need two I mean when we come to have counted tho electoral votes we shall need two it unmistakable a man with the country behind a man in whom this noble country hits so much conil lence that ho revolutionary plot or conspiracy will uplift its hand to strike down tils In the name of the history of the las fltteen years of war and of looking over all of those tragic evcmts while the country has been rocked as n the throes of a political who Is ask every member of this conven tion to Iny his mind on his heart and is there In this broad land upon whose upon whose upon whose character and strength the Rc lubllcan party and the nation more than upon any other can safely repose and cries of Grant If there is such a I will fall short In the duty assigned to me by tue seat with which my constituents have honored me every oilier mumber of this convention will fall short In his duty if there be such a if wo do not express our judgment and our convictions how historydoes re peat I and you when Abraham Lincoln was ind you remember what preceded that The lights we see the Bounds we hear were all seen and heard Newspaper jeople took canvasses of the people and round tiua threefourths of them were opposed to Anybody but Anything to beat Lfu Conventions wore held in which tho gal leries and with that modesty and that courtesy always observed on such laughter and to Impress and mislead conventions with the Idea that nubile judgment was Abraham The Mopie knew Everybody knows botlcr than You may have In a and Uepublican an able corps of trained ofll clnls you may have men with their salaries lu their camped in a particular political district and making their headquarters In the carrying on an active campaign on the hlguroads and byromls for a particularly ft the roads are bad or the snow Is and you may produce f rotn dis trict an antiGrant or an antiLincoln lou may go Into a metropollcan district you may nave the question ralrly stated and an overwhelming and unmistakable verdict for Ulysses then you may lind from that very district a delegation so skil fully brought to nass that a majority of them are against and you may see a distinguished delegate from that district rise In open convention and serve notice upon the others that If they un dertake to throttle or stifle the real voice of that district he will revolt In open All that may The ahallowa murmur while thudeepaaie down below this liuttering deep down In the hearts and Judpment of the wiser than words of if I may say It without than of any other member of this is the the Judgment the conviction ot the masses of Republicans New York and ot other Judgment of the Republicans of New i ork as to the one single question before thin con to whoso hands can we most safely commit that banner so resplendent with illustrious achievements What is the i of tie Republicans of New York Does any man hear me who doubts 1 Does not this conven tion overwhelmingly answer that question 7 Do we not know tnat the Judgment and convictions of our constituents is that ttie safest man arncmV all the eminent men in the Republican the safest as a candidate In the afterwards to be peaceably and quietly Is that man who carried the flog through the storm of battle and having been tested and has been touud worthy of the confidence and admiration of the American people No thirdterm objection to The ob jection to a third term is that the ioocunaut to the Presidency can wield his official power to renomlnate and elect This man Is a private citizen he has no official patronage or power he has been absent tn distant aWo even to exert his indivi dual influence upon The official patronage let me I apeak in the hearing of men who know official patronage of the has not heen used for Laughter and friendship for Grant Is not and it has not been for more than three years a to oniclal favor therefore no man can suppose that the damrer of employing official Influence applies in a caseTlke there is nothing of The statutes of our State forbid in all the sixty counties ot the State the reelection ol a Why For fear that holding in his hands the instrumentalities of tne Sheriff he may wield them for oppression in order to reiilect himself but was it ever that when a man who had been Sheriff had been out of office lor a term of years that you might not re nominate and reiilect him in this blessed County of which we who live hero regard beg pardon of my frleudsas the moat en lightened and correct spot on in county of Onelda a man who had been Sheriff before bos more than after another term had been ronomlnated and re and nobody ever thought of an objection to Although there is a lunatic asylum in this district thatf has 700 and all those advantages and no man waa ever heard or heard of that supposed that the rule or the reason of It applied to such a can I do not want to seem Blessed with the gift of I am glad to know that some otners have therefore I believe that there Is a man who more certainly than any other can win in this next i believe lie can poll a larger vote in tuetttateol New York than another manwhose name I can I Believe more Republicans are for him than lor any other Republican and I believe that more Democrats will vote for him than will vote lor any other 1 believe that U the name ol any man can break into the solid
