the President of General Robertson
to le collector of the Port of New

The two Senator* representing Ne
York in the Senate Of the United

.-pressed. will of the people they were
in duty bound to represent as indi

PREVENTION OP BRIBERY
AND FRAUD AT PRIMARY
— As will be seen by reading the law
elsewhere published in these col
umns, the Legislature has wisely en
acted • that fine and imprisonment
shall follow conviction of fraud and
bribery committed at delegate elec
tions, primary electrons and nomi
nating conventions. It will be the
duty of all good- citizens to see that
the law is respected and enforced
There,are practices rife in the'Re
publican 'organization of Bradford
county in respect to procuring nomi
nations to offiice, that Republicans
ought not to tolerate. The practice
of using money to influence delegate
elections, the purchase of delegates
to misrepresent their coastituents
in county txmainating conventions,
the practice of a multiplicity of can
didates for important offices traf
ficking on their delegates in the
county convention, the Stronger buy
ing off the weaker, and paying a con
sideration in order to secure a com
bination of strength to effect a pore-
Motion. These things have been
shamelessly done: Men professing
leadership in the party have given
aid- and encouragement to these
demoralizing practices. llt is time
the public conscience :became stirred
with a moral sense of decency and
propriety in respect to these' things,
and men should frown upon and re
ject the leadership of those • who are
known to be guilty of practicing
them. Nominations fairly made,
upon honest principles of represen
tation, unless the nominee is found
to be incapacitated or morally tainted
by corruption and dishonesty, bind
adherents of Republican principles
to the support of the candidate.
But purchased nominations bind
nobody. We have' in our mind now,
men wefi known in the county, who
have trafficked in delegates for years.
Not only this, but they have traffick
ed away to the opposite party the suc
cess of Republican candidates fairly
nominated, for a consideration in
money. We give notice in time,
that if men of this class are forced
upon the ticket this fall as candidates
for office, we shall ask the Republi
cans of the county to defeat them at
the polls. In the interest of politi
cal integrity and decency it is the
duty of Republicans to set their fa
ces like steel against the promotion
of such men to official position.
Neither our vote nor the service of
the REIT/1L1C?43 will be given, either
for the nomination of such men- - or
for their success at the polls if.nomi
noted. We own ourself and pro
pose to exert our influence earnestly
for the correction of existing abuses
in this regard. Good nominations
fairly made by our party will receive
our most cordial and hearty support.
We entertain an abiding affection
and attachment for the living prin
ciples of the Republican party in
j;ioik;GOidly'byanti nee the
party and its principles dishonored,
and defeated by the disreputable
practices of men. who traffic upon the
influences they are. enabled to wield
through the corrupting - use of money.
This practice has so corrupted our
primary elections and 'nominating
conventions that it has become a dis
gusting political stench- ; in the nos
trils of fair-minded citizens. It is
not too late for men who have been
drawn into it by the . 'influence
of bad leaders, to correct' the abide
by refraining to further be influent-.
el by them. ,_lieep aloof, a . . 54 square
ly and openly from honest motives
for the right, and a good conscience
will be your reward.
The law referred to will be rigidly
enforced against offenders. Those
who dare to disregard it will look
fine and imprisonment squarely in
a., num. ror once we shall hope
that the choice of the_ majority of
the party fairly expressed will pre
vail in our nominating convention.
To the other complications sur
rounding the Senatorial struggle in
the New York Legislature, is added
the charge preferred by Representa
tive Bradley of Olean, N: Y., against
Senator Sessions of Chautauqua, of
attempted bribery. Mr, Bradley
claims to havp received s2,ooo'from.
Senator Sessions as a consideration
for changing his vote from Conk
ling to Depew. He deposited the
money with Speaker Sharpe, and ex
posed the transaction on the floor of
the House. Mr. ' Bradley swears
positively that the money was paid
him by Mr. Sessions, and Mr. Ses
aimia sus positively denies if,. Wino,
the outcome may be we venture no
opinion. - -
General Grant has been interview
ed again, and reiterates - SOW very
foolish talk regarding the Conkling
and Platt fight with the administra
tion. He asserts the'right of a;Sen
ator to control all appointment's in
his State, and the duty of his fellow
Senators to - act in accordance with
his wishes in rejecting or con
firming such nominations: This
enough. The country wants no
more of such foolishness. This is

which a share of the estate amounting

The Olean - (N. Y.) Daily Tune",
of June iltb, Elblislift the following
defense of the private character Hon.'
Samuel H. .Bradley, the member
from Gittaraugns county, residing at
Olean, who claims to have been paid
$2,000, by Senator Sessions to influ
ence hismote for U. S. Senator, as a
member of the New Yorli Legislature:
Since .the startling denotement on
Ttalisday in tile Assembly chambei at
Albany, certain newspapers have sought
to pour zentempt on Mr. Bradley by
allosions to his character and past
4hile some things said have a color of
ruth and - a basis in fac ., ,yr . others are
*holy gratuitous • and utterly fise.
Mr. Bradley has'never sought to cover
up anything. When quite a • young
man he, like thousands of young men,
led a fast life and became addicted to
the use of intoxicating *inks. That
was many years ago. When be reach
ed man's estate he put sway childish
follies . and dissipations. Let this stand
to his credit. Let it ra t• be brought
against him at this lite day to degrade
and belittle him in the eyes of the peo
ple. His reformation cost him a strug
gle and be went through it manfully
and heroically and came off victorious.
clod, pity the venomous pens that are
trying to write him down on the ground
of his former disipated habits. He
has been for many years a total ab
starter and conducted.himself in all
respects in an honorable, neright man
ner, Ho hies been engaged,in a legiti
mate busines, that of producing oil,
and bas given it his whole time and at
tention. In this manner be has acquir
ed a handsome fortune and is placed
above temptation from the money pow
ei of either lobbyists or corporations.
Previous to the developments in the
Bradford oil field, Mr. Bradley was en
gaged in business in Cincinnati and
New Orleans, and_ at a still earlier per
iod'he entered the Union army and . im
periled his life in his country's service.
To this day he bears in his pensini the
t•cars which brand him a patriotic citi
zen and heroic soldier. It is useless
therefore, to : . deny to him all the ele
ments of manly character. It is
famous for the Republican press to re
fer in such; contemptuous terms to his
earlier career and in this manner try to
manufsetere s hostile public sentiment
against him. His townsmen and
the citizens of Cattarraugus county
know him. for just • what •he is, and
they believe in him. They, honor him.
_They confide in hie integrity of pur
pose and character. Twice-has Olean
sent him to the county legislature. A
year ago the Olean Fire Department

Fall•the voters of the First Assembly
District of Cattaraogns county decid-
ed that be should go to Albany. There
wax no division of the -party on his
nomination or on the question of • his
election. His majority was not quite
what it ;would have been had not the
Democrats and a few Republican mal
contents quietly worked against him,
pnrsnading some that he. was 'yet a
drunker], and on the other band array
ing• the whole liquor interest of the
district against him by . representations
of his stubborn and unalterable hostili
ty to their tracffic. &But he W 149 elect
the lying representations that are Made
made against this man's integrity and
foriner character. Whatever may be
the result of the investigation at Al
bany (and we believe it - will not be un
favorable to Mr. Bradley) it ' will nev

for the put

one that he may well be proud-of:

"The. financial policy of the last Ad

the redaction - of' the rate of interest on

these performances. . . . But to the out

ground of complaint is that the new-comers
do dot p* the game according Ito the old

of procedure tends to lessen the status of th e '

as the public are concerned. For them the
questiOn is, simply and solely, What ii the
result, obtained? The new school, availing
themselves largely of the assistance of photo
graphy, are able to dispense, in a , great
measure, with the old tedious method of
drawing on the block, and to leave the artist
to choose what medians he - prefers for his
design—be it oil, water-color; or black and
white—concerning themselves (mkt to re
produce its characteristics -on the, Wood.
This is, of course, a deviation from the
method of Bewick. But - would Bewick liave

in his last hours he was seeking for new pro

the artist himself with the least amount of
interpretation or intermediation on the part
of ,the engraver. Is engraving on copper to
be reproduced. we want . a fac-simile if pos
