April 19.-The National Administration was approved, and a resolution of confidence in the management by William Vaughan of the affairs of the Republican State Executive Committee was adopted. The question of the selection of a State ticket was left to the next State

The construction of the Nicaragua Canal is urged and Senator Morgan's position on that question indorsed. The treatment of the Porto Rican situation by Congress is denounced. Trade competition is declared as necessary and combines and trusts are scored. The platform demands the supervision and curbing of combines, and designates as the chief of these the protective tariff of the Republican party. W. J. Bryan is indorsed and his renomination demanded. The reaffirmation of the Chicago platform is demanded and public education is promised the people of Alabama. A resolution was passed by the convention recommending a constitutional convention.
May 30.-The dispensary system of handling the liquor traffic was declared an improvement over the license system, the proposed constitutional Populist. convention was declared inimical to the interests of the people, the administration of Governor Johnston was commended, and it was declared inexpedient to nominate a State ticket, although county tickets, especially for candidates for the Legislature, were urged.
May 15.-The convention passed a resolution condemning Governor Brady, as follows: "Be it resolved by the Republicans of the District of Alaska, in convention assembled, that the further continuance in office of John G. Brady as Governor of Alaska is inimical to the interests of Alaska and contrary to the wishes of the Republican party, and that a copy
of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States." The convention indorsed President McKinley's Administration: demanded that the territorial form of government be extended to .Alaska; declared for the removal of the capital from Sitka to Juneau; asked the Government that a direct cable from Alaska to Puget Sound be laid, and demanded that lighthouses be erected in Alaskan waters forthwith.
June 8.-The Territorial convention expressed satisfaction with Democratic principles, instructed its delegates to vote for Bryan, and adopted a money plank as follows: We favor the immediate restoration of the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver at the present legal ratio of 16 to 1, as such coinage existed prior to 1873, without waiting for the aid or the consent of any other silver nation. We are opposed to the retirement of the greenbacks, and demand that the Secretary of the Treasury, instead of issuing interest bearing bonds for the purchase of gold, shall recognize silver as the money of redemption, and exercise the right to redeem greenbacks, Treasury bonds and all other coin obligations in silver where silver is more convenient.
March 21.-The platform indorsed the Administration, favored expansion, the protection of labor, Government construction and ownership of the Nicaragua Canal, and extension of the merchant marine, and declared opposition to Republican. trusts and laws designed to cheate honest voters and enable a corrupt minority to govern.

On State matters the platform said: We favor railroads, the prolific mother of all forms of State development; manufactories, the greatest source of wealth to a State, the improvement of highways, the encouragement of capital to invest in our zinc and other mines; a high degree of efficiency for our public school system, and such generous maintenance of the University of Arkansas as shall place it on a plane with the best institutions in the land. We demand that the courts alone shall punish crime. We oppose convict labor when brought into competition with the labor of honest freemen in such a manner as to lessen the demand for such labor or so as to curtail its reward. The constitution of the State should be so amended as to permit, under safe restrictions, cities and incorporated towns to borrow money for the exclusive purpose of improving streets, securing sewers, water, light and such like necessities. We favor the determination of all questions that may arise between employers and employes by a system of impartial arbitration to be provided by law and to be compulsory. We recommend that the State ticket shall consist solely of the nominee for Governor.
June 27. The platform reaffirms the Chicago declaration of 1896, favors strict

same rights for the Philippines and National legislation against trusts.
May 15.-The Republican party of the State of California, by its representatives, pledges itself anew to those principles of domestic and foreign policy which, under a wise administration of public affairs, have brought us prosperity Republican. at home and honor abroad. We declare our continued adherence to the policy by which the Republican party has proved itself, in fact as in theory, the firend of labor, and under which our manufactures not only control the home market, but are taking first rank in foreign markets throughout the world. We are in favor of the construction of the Nicaragua Canal under Government control and ownership. We fully appreciate the menace to this country and especially to the Pacific Coast from the continually increasing influx of Asiatic labor and we call upon Congress by appropriate legislation to protect us from this impending danger. We heartily commend the patriotism and valor of our soldiers and sailors who have upheld the honor of our flag and country and emulated the glorious example of the men who preserved the integrity of the Union and won the lasting love and admiration of a grateful people. We heartily indorse the administration of President McKinley, as exemplifying the highest type of statesmanship, and justifying in every particular the confidence reposed in him by the American people. We declare ourselves in favor of the continuance of the policy of the present Administration as essential to the public welfare, and commend our President as meriting a renomination and triumphant re-election, and hereby instruct our delegates to the National Convention to give him their hearty support. We indorse the fearless and economical administration of State affairs by Governor Henry T. Gage, and express our approval of the faithful manner in which he has discharged the duties of his trust.
September 6.-The Philadelphia platform was indorsed, loyal support was pledged to McKinley and Roosevelt, Governor Gage's ccurse was commended, and the Nicaragua Canal project favored. Other planks were: We favor the conservation of all available waters for the reclamation and irrigation of arid lands, and liberal appropriations by Congress for that purpose, supplemented by the co-operation of the States directly interested. Such policy to be initiated by the collaboration of the Federal and State governments in a thorough investigation of our water supply and the best methods of utilizing the same. We indorse the action that has been taken to secure as a permanent possession for the whole people the great forests situated in our mountain ranges, and earnestly recommend that our Senators and Representatives in Congress support by their votes and influence the establishment of National reservations, in order that these forests may be saved from destruction and our water supply preserved. We favor such legislation as will prevent the acquisition of lands chiefly valuable for petroleum, asphaltum and other minerals under the guise of lien land and forest reserve exchange selections, and we request our Senators and Representatives in Congress to use all honorable means to prevent fraud in that way and secure such legislation as will protect the miners of the State from oppression and blackmail. We demand the prevention of the importation of cheap alien labor, the continuance and re-enactment of the present Chinese exclusion laws and ppropriate legislation prohibiting the immigration of Japanese and other contract laborers. We favor the adoption of the proposed constitutional amendment providing for the regulation of primary elections and the enactment of such laws as will make it effective and insure fair primaries. We favor appropriate legislation for the permanent improvement of our roads and highways. We fully recognize the importance of the great work that the State University is doing toward the intellectual and industrial development of the State. We recognize also that the demands upon it in both these directions have so outgrown its income as to seriously threaten its usefulness. We therefore pledge our party to an increase of the revenues of the State University through the coming Legislature sufficient to maintain its efficiency. We congratulate our State and its people upon the semicentennial of its admission to the Union, and rejoice that the policy of our Government is making California the gateway and centre of Oriental trade, developing our resources, creating a market for our products and portending for our State a future still more glorious than its golden past.
September 29.-The National ticket and platform were indorsed, and on State matters the platform favored legislation providing for the preservation within National or Stat parks of the redwood forests, and the revival of hydraulic Democratic. mining wherever it can be permitted without injury to other interests.

Other planks were: The growing commerce of our State requires the early completion of the sea wall and Belt Line Railroad on the harbor front of San Francisco and the abolition of all State tolls and a material reduction of all other port charges. We denounce the action of the present Republican National Administration in refusing a right of way to the State for the construction of the Tioga road through the Yosemite National Park. We favor appropriate legislation for the permanent im
