Tlio undersigned, con&itntisg tlie National
Committee designated by the Convention held
-at Chicago 011 the "20th of May, 1868, hereby
■call a convention of the Union Republican
party, at the city of Philadelphia, on the 5th

Each State is authorized to be represented
in the convention by delegates equal to twice
the number of Senators and Representatives
to which it will be entitled in the next
National Congress, and each organized Terri-
tory is authorized to send two delegates.
In calling this convention, the committee re-
mind the promises of tho Union Republican
Convention of 1868 have been fulfilled The
■States lately in rebellion have been restored to
their, formsr relations to the government.
The Taws of the country have been faithfully
fxecuted: public raith has been preserved
and tho national credit firmlj; established;
governmental economy has been illustrated
by the ' reduction at the samfe time ot the
public debt and taxation, and the refunding of
the uatianal debt at a lower rate of interest
'successfully inagurated. The rights of natur-
alized citizens have been protected bv treaties,
and immigration encouraged by liberal pro-
visions. The defenders of the Union have
been gratefully remembered, and the rights
and interests of labor recognized. Laws have
been enacted, and are being enforced for the
protection of persons and property in all
sections Equal suffrage has been engrafted on
the National Constitution. The privileges and
immunities of American citizenship have be-
come a part of the organic law, and a liberal
policy has been adopted toward all who engaged
in the rebellion. Complications in foreign re-
lations have been adjusted in the interest of
peace, throughout the world; while the
national houOr has been maintained, corrup-
tion ha sheen exposed, offenders' punished, re-
sponsibility enforced, safeguards established,
and now, as heretofore, the Republican party
stands pledged to correct all abases, and carry
out all reforms necessary to maintain the purity
«ud efficiency of the public service. To con-
tinue and iirmly establish itij fundamental
principles we invite the ce-opesation of all the
•citizens of the United States
