M. Governor of West Virginia, During His Term of Office: Including Proclamations and Other Official PapersMr. Chairman and Fellow Republicans:In accepting this nomination, which you have so generously and with such unanimity and heartiness tendered me, I wish to express my sincere thanks for the high honor conferred.

The great compliment paid in making me the standard bearer of the Republican party in the State campaign now upon us is appreciated beyond the power of mere words to express. But it is not for the honor or the compliment that the nomination is accepted. It is a call to duty by a great party at a time in the history of the politics of our State when the importance of securing victory at the polls is so great that every loyal Republican and well-wisher of West Virginia and its future, it seems to me, should subordinate his personal wishes to the general good and unite in the election of the Republican ticket.The issues are now made up and the political parties have enunciated their national and state platforms and placed their standard bearers in the field.The Republican party appeals to the electors of the Nation upon a platform adopted at Philadelphia which is a clear-cut exposition of our partys position on the great issues of the day.

I need not discuss these general issues at this time and place, in view of the splendid and thorough presentation of these matters by Senator Elkins and the other speakers who have preceded me. My distinguished competitor, a man for whom I have a high personal regard, in his speech accepting the Democratic nomination for Governor, had not a word to say about State matters or policies affecting this great commonwealth. His theme was imperialism and the sunless and shoreless sea upon which the ship of State, he averred, was sailing.

It seems to me proper that in the few words to be said by me at this time, I should discuss matters concerning our own State.The importance of the election this fall to the Republican party of this State cannot be overstated.I heartily accept and endorse the platform of principles adopted by this convention and stand squarely upon it.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
