"Among the resolutions adopted
by the Republican State Convention
of Alabama on Wednesday, was
one to the following effect:. 'The
Republican party is a true friend ol
tbe workingmen everywhere, and
the Republican party of Alabama,
composed mainly of farmers and
skilled mechanics and workingmen,
expresses its profonnd sympathy
with these classes of wealth-producing
people, and pledges itself
to aid them in every way to better
their condition,' to encoarage tillers
of the soil to own tbe land they
cultivate, to promote home getting
free from the burdeus of debts, to
help emancipate the toiling masses
Irom tbe imputation that honest
toil is degrading, to give honor and
dignity to labor, aud to the labor
ing man his rightful share in shap
ing tbe laws under which be toils
and lives, and finally to secure for
the most favored citizens equality
of citizenship throughout our vast
republic We favor that just and
protective government policy which
gives protection alike to American
industry of all kinds, and Aineriean
labor of all classes and affords tp
our farmers a remunerative borne
market for all their products."'
All this is superlative impudence.
In its early days tbe Republican
party took from the toiling millions
of this country a magnificent do
main and gave it to the Pacific
Railroad Company. Iu doing this
it violated inalienable rights of
citizens to pander to the cupidity
of a soulless corporation.
The only Democratic Administra
j tion with which the nation has been
i blessed, since 1800,restored millions
, of aCres of this land to the public
domain, thus returning it to tbe
people for homes in a land of golden
harvests and delicious fruits.
The Republican party has passed
, p00r arid the hard-working, witbout
a qUam 0f mercy or pity in their
j impervious breasts."

to America in 1041 as Colonial
Secretary under Sir William Berke
