I thank Yon in All sub eerily for the Honor which Job have Eoa torred upon we sad i should shr by mme Sny tvs it it the perform the duty in void log upon Lue in View of to hts that i am required to administer Lefi Lativs Rule for the reason that very Zimny Yearie have passed slave i waa a air Liber of a leg Labauve by but i am emboldened to undertake the task trim the fact that this is a Lopuh loan Eoven lob up Lauie bad re Ulrea to special info Roovest of tie rules of Milam Lutary order. We assemble Here under ver Ian Oracle air sum Abbas indeed at s time when this country it la the Jajw quient of a higher degree of Proe Yerty than Baa fallen to the lot of any Aaron of Root i ? sait a a a a to re a a Bibu Saeea of our tree Lusu la Leasta every Dos Salon be Iba Utun Ai Zaklad through ont the world in their struggle for the of the right of sek gov emment and when in the midst of All the Joy and Consolation derived from this condition of things we ask. How has it been brought a outta the answer of every Lutell Lieut Man is that it is the result of Twenty Odd Yeara of Republican policy applause that it Bee been produced despite of the opposition of the democratic party. Ran Plause that it is the re Salt of that system in the administration of Public affairs which recon Les therl Khuot the people of this country to control their own institutions applause and which denies to any state or body of men calling themselves by whatsoever name they please to dictate to the people How their will Ahall be expressed and their in Sti Tuttos Beall be administered. When the Republican Darty us talked Poese Aaion of this government it was without credit. The machine had run Down. Our Bonds were hawked about in the markets of the world with not the value attached to them that belongs to those of the broken of Wall Street. We were without Money in the Treasury with a destroyed Trade with everything to make the heart of an american Freeman feel sad. But. More than that we had in our midst an enemy resolved to pull Down the fair Fabrie which our Fathera bad built by a merciless cruel and unhallowed civil War which they inaugurated for no reason in the world than to carry out that great democratic idea of state rights which Slavca the states of this in inn higher and above the National authority. Applause we took Porse Sion of the government in that condition of affairs. What have we done within that Timet i often Bear men say that the Roan who Lee in these times see More in a few Yeara than oar fathers would Hare seen in a Hundred. And that is True. Bat the Man who und Rukes to read and investigate and examine the history of the Republican party will find we bin the Twenty years of its Els Tenor More of history More of grandeur More that is calculated to make be feel that we Are upon the plane of elevated Prosperity than is con entered in a Hundred Yeara history of any part of the world. Applause Cor fathers of the revolution Laid the foundations of our institutions through anguish and tribulation l it we have sustained them through tribulation More aggravating than theire and Here we Are assembled to Lay to decide for our selves and for the people whom we represent whether that great party that Baa made to much of history that Baa done All those things that has so permanently and firmly fixed the found Tiona of our institutions that no Power a Ion Earth shall Etier be enabled to assail them Suo Ces Srully whether that great Pirty Ahall go out of Power and permit to be returned to Power the very men who prod wed the Calam Tooa Monse Quenesa which created the be Ceasley of our sex Ift Tenee. Applause and yet they Are not done Bow talking about the Righta of the state. They seem to have info loud upon them the disease of state Righte. Applause they now ask the people of this country to return them to Power fur that reason alone nothing else. What is there in their profession St what do they propose to Dot disturb the car Tency. Is not that Rigett Inu Fere with the Domestic policy of the government in any of in forms. Is it not All Rigett Are we not going on a Well if not better than any nation in the world what then do they propose to Dot simply to affirm the idea that the National government Baa taken away some of the rights of the states. One thing i am Aure. They have not Uken away and that is the right of the people of Indiana to vote upon constitutional Ameid Mente. Lyid and continued applause now if they bad taken that away then i a hound subscribe to that part of the democratic platform but having permitted a to exercise within the state All the Righta that belong to us As such. I do not know that the relations Between Tai state and the National government should be disturbed applause and laughter but my Friende there is something More in thle Rea scr Loii of Sute rights than merely appear upon the sur Faoa. It la the great question of this Day and age. It Baa agitated Thia country from the beginning. It culminated in the rebellion Aud by the Power of the arms of the a Meilean army we crushed out Leo Eslon but a never crushed nullification and the sum re gala of the democratic party of this stable nothing but old Fae cloned revamped. It occurs to me that Tala la potent to every Man who will read. I remember All Ray life to have heard of Jackson democracy. R applause there Wae a tells manic influence about the name of Jao kaon that gave to the party that called itself the Jackson democracy wonderful Power in this country. But Jackson crushed out Belll Flection. And he server Hie Par no longer. I applause our democratic friends in this state Nave re christened their party and in their platform have declared that not Jaeyeon Bat Thomaa Jefferson la the father of it. Now who la Thomaa Jefferaon a very great Man undoubtedly. He wrote the declaration of Independence before any Par Lea War bom. He became president by oppo Eltion to the administration of Washington. Be passed embargo Lawa and originated a Aye tem of gun Boata and refused to reduce the duties upon imported article notwithstanding they produced a surplus of Money in the Treasury. Applause and he declared that. Notwithstanding there waa a surplus of Money in the Treasury it was our first and Foremost duty to protect amerlean manufacture a and american labor no matter. How much Money there waa in tha Treasury. A applause but More than that be waa the aut Boi of nullification the Only president of the United states from the beginning up to now who Ever declared is any form whatsoever that a state of Thia Golem meet had a right to Bullof a Taw of Congress. Now do our democratic Frienda mean to Call that Jeffera Onlan democracy i commend them to that history of the Elmee which records the Evento when those great part Lea were formed and i beg of them As an american Cut Lien and a Cit Lsen of tha site that they shall not again inaugurate any political info Reneee in thle counter which Ahall in Neril the Cal Stelae of Thia Union applause the people of this Oon try do not latency that the Union shall be do troyed. Rap Lauae they intend that the states of this Union Ahall exercise All tha rights which belong to them but they at the name time intend that the National government shall exercise All Ito Euper Lorand Over eign rights within Ito own constitutional sphere. Applause now what have we got to Dot we have got simply to declare to the people of the United state Aud to the it eople of our own state that we of the Republican party stand were we have been for Twenty years applause that we Are the party of the people i Bat whenever great questions which Aoe tour fundamental Law and which do not pertain to the machinery of the party have to be settled the Best the Only True Mode of settling them is to submit them to the Volca of the people loud applause. And when they have Dee coed them to Rae Oglw their verdict a final and Oono Luslie. Continued applause that la the theory of our government. Mes dispute and Wrangle about these questions As they please that feature of our Nail Tulone must not be impaired applause. That i Call state rights. Tala. However it seems to me be not the occasion for speech Iii King. I am net a speech Quaker. and applause i used to be so laughter i in the Daye of your fathers applause Tut i am not so any longer. I can therefore Only say that a this is a Busl nees Oon Venetiou composed of Bua Luesa men who Bave something to do at Home that we shall Goto work in a Plain and simple business Way execute our task and return to our Homes. Applause. The first business in order be the report of the committee on Resolution a. La the con vestion ready to hear that report or. Thompsob a a amok was Grested with vociferous applause. The report of tha com Mettaa of being next Morder Hon. Johs Over mayor of Jea luge county Ohai Mab of the a Ommittee was introduced Aad read tha platform. To Publ ten. Tiie Republican party of Indiana repro rented in a Delegate Eon Verlion recalls As an inventive to further exertions for the Public welfare the of the party in re storing the National Union in overthrowing slavery in securing to disabled Soldini and to the wid Uwi and orphans of Thooe who fell in Battle or died from wounds or disease i contracted in the a Crevice of the Union Laws providing for Liberal Lio unties and pension a building up an credit upon the simple foundation of an Public Faith in reducing the great debt ii Cem Sariin incurred fur tiie of the rebellion one half and the interest on the remainder to so Low a rate that the National debt is no longer regarded a a Burden in establishing a currency equal to any in the world based upon the convertibility of Greenback and National Bank notes into Gold or Silver at the option o the Liol Ders Iii increasing the value of agricultural Prodoti Ottoni and the wages of labor by building up urine Marlieta on the Poller of reasonable Protection to Domestic industries in exalting to value of our naturalization Laws to our foreign bom fellow citizens by securing to american naturalization everywhere the full rights of american citizenship in founding american citizenship upon manhood and not on complexion in declaring that citizenship and the ballot Sisail Ever go band in hand in maintaining and cherishing As a chief safeguard of Liberty our system of free schools supported in a tax imposed upon All property for the education of ail children and in the Subt Biasion from time to time in the respectful obedience to what has been deemed the popular will of amendments to the National Constitution and the Constitution of the state. Animated by these recollections it is resolved 1. That reposing Trust in the people Ai the Fountain of Power we demand that the pending amendments to the Constitution Ahall be agreed to and submitted by the next legislature to the voters of the state for their decision thereon. These amendments were not partisan in their origin and Are not so in Cliar Acter and should not to made so in voting upon them. Rec Mizing the fact that the people Are divided in sentiment in regard to the propriety of their adoption or rejection and cherishing the right of private judgment we favor the submission of these amendments at a spa Cial election so that there May be an intelligent decision thereon uninfluenced by partisan issues. 2. That we feel it due to the memory of president Garfield to express our sense of the great loss suffered by the nation in his death. We recall with Pride the fact that springing from the humblest conditions in life Lincoln and Garfield arose step by step with out any help but the Force of their abilities and exertion to the front Ranic among americans and were chosen by tie Republican party to Bear its Banner in its struggles to maintain the supremacy and glory of the National Union. 3. That lapse of time cannot efface from the grateful recollection of the Republican party its memory of the Brave soldiers from whatever Section or party ranks Uliey May have come who offered their lives in support of its policy of restoring and maintaining the Union of the states. 4. That a Revenue greatly reduced in amount being All that is now needed to pay the interest on our Public debt and the expenses of the government economically administered the time has arrived Lor such a reduction of taxes and regulation of Tariff duties As shall raise no More Money than shall be necessary to pay such interest and exit lenses. We therefore approve of the efforts now making to adjust this reduction so that no unnecessary burdens upon tiie Consumers of imported articles May exist and that no injury be inflicted upon our Domestic industries or upon the Industrial classes employed therein. 6. That we Are gratified to observe that the Laws for the Protection of miners and securing their wages under the constant administration of them by Republican mine inf dec tors has done much for the Comfort of the workers in mines and that we Hope to see important suggestions of the present inspector for amendment farther to promote their Comfort adopted by the next legislature. 6. That the relations Between capital and Palm it a should be so adjusted that the rights of labourers Liali be fully protected. 7. That the fees of All state and county officers should be so regulated As to give a fair compensation to them but not so great As to tempt applicants to corrupt methods to obtain the same or to impose unjust burdens six it a the people. 8. That we join with on Irish fellow citizens in sincere sym Paliy with the efforts of their Brethren in Ireland to break up by Means of just legislation the Lam landed estates in that Island and to introduce upon these lands for the general Good of the people peasant proprietor slip. We join with them also in the Hope that efforts for Home Rule in All matters of local concern will prove successful. 9. That it is the Doty of Congress to adopt Laws to secure a thorough Radical and Complete Reform of the civil service by which the subordinate positions of the government should no longer be considered rewards for their i it arty Zeal which will abolish the evils of patronage and establish a system making honesty efficiency and Fidelity the essential qualifications for Public position. 10. That the Industry Wisdom and firmness of president Chester a. Artur meets the cordial endorsement of the Republican of Indiana. 11. That senator Benjamin Harrison by his Able and faithful discharge of duty and on account of his Fininen abilities challenges our admiration and Confidence. 12. That governor Albert g. Porter is a Wise and honest executive officer and we congratulate the state upon securing tie services of so faithful a Public servant. . Since tiie last meeting of the rep ii incan convention of Indiana sex senator Henry s. Lane one of the gifted and Ever honoured founders and trusted leaders of tiie Republican a try has depart ii this life and left a void in our ranks that fills us with sadness. He was eloquent for the right always moved by the highest impulses of patriotism and hit memory is enshrined in the Hearto of the people of the state. After Reading the resolutions or.

And the fodder s in the it would be a piece of cruelty for me to inflict Apo if this convention one or my Apee bes after the eloquent Effort which you have heard from my friends Gordon and Baldwin. I Small Only again thank Yon and assure Yon that i will make the Best time to Mable Forward. Colonel Edward h. Woltz Ems next in Oer and Baldor. President and gentlemen of the Cavan Tola it seems to me you have converted to blk Craven lob into a picnic with your present state officers. I have not words to adequately express my thanks to Yoa for the Honor you have conferred upon me la Desern Atung me with the other present state Ofil cers for tiie office to which i Nave again been nominated. Although Thisbe Salt was not unexpected by me i assure you it is none the less appreciated. Two years ago when i successfully sought to obtain the nomination for auditor of state i believed that not Only the Republican party As a National organisation would continue to control and manage the government and the Union but i believed that to time had come when the administration of the affairs of the great state of Indiana Wae to be transferred to that same Republican party and i with other members on that ticket and with All of them from the Day of the Awuou rement of that memorable convention until the Day of the elections in october and november Eon tribute what i could in every honorable Way to bring Aud assure that result. The administration of the present Reibl Lusn state officers is before the people and to that record and that we invite the most rigid scrutiny and the most searching inquiry. Applause As an officer in charge of the Public accounts of the state made and required by Law to take great responsibility in auditing and following Many claims presented against the state and involving Large sums of Money i have been governed solely by the Law and by the interest of the people. Applause i have no doubt that sometime during this Campaign you will hear something of some of my optic Lite act. I May possibly and i regret it if it is so i May possibly receive the personal opposition of some very dear friends in this state because i am to Dar As auditor of your state occupying the position of defendant in the court of your state resisting the payment out of your state Treasury of thousands of dollars of your Money. I Bare no Compromise to make upon that question. I have endeavoured to discharge my antics honestly and faithfully. I have Given the office my constant attention and i have made its do tips my constant study and i exit act to continue to Ducharne those duties in the same Way for to two years to Home.

Applause now Ferow Republican i have no speech to make. I expect like these other to contribute what i can in my feeble Way to the Success of the Tichet. I think every Democrat will find out before this Campaign is Over that they have Someth lug else to do besides undertaking to accomplish the impossible feat of carrying a mtg at whisky on one shoulder and a Glass of water on the other. As i came into the convention i was prom nerd with a copy of or. English s speech of we Lii Yon have heard so much recently and it occurred to me while i thought about tie efforts of the Denio Cradle party in this town sep in the convention that occurred a few months ago and in their District convention which Metat Shel Byville and made the famous Shelby Volle platform when i thought about the labor that bad been expended by the great lights of the democratic party the eminent men of that organization How they attempted to formulate Public opinion on this question Aud Bow they thought they had the platform about settled and i Road or. English s Pereb and it occurred to to that his construction of the platform and the position of the Democrato party could Best be illustrated by a Story that general Grant used to Tell. I saw the Story republished in the Indianapolis Sentinel a few Days ago. General Grant once told about a Blacksmith who undertook to make out of a huge piece of Iron a clevis. He worked on it faithfully but tolled. He then concluded be would make out of what waa left a Horseshoe. He worked at that Fali fully Aad tailed again. He then Cono Ludd be Woulff make out of what was left a horse Boe Nail and failed a again and finally. In Hie disgust he threw the red Bot mass into the water that usually stand by the Blacksmith s Anvil and Days Quot i will make a do big fizz out of you an Way Quot applause Hon. Roswell 8.
