Entered In the Pest Mee at Towanda al
THURSDAY, JULY 14, 1881.
Subject to the decision of the Republican
County Convention. -
The Republican County Commit
tee at a meeting held Friday, June
24th, in which the representation was
full, chose as represeatative delegates
to the State Convention which is to
assemble at Harrisburg: on Monday,
September sth ; 0. D. Kinney, R.
A. Mercur and J. Monroe Smith, and
instructed them to support the nom
ination of :Hon. W. T. Davies, for
State Treasurer.
It is well known to the Republi•
cans of Bradford, that we have in
the past sharply critizised the repre
sentative action of Mr. Davies, espe
cially with reference to his course at
Cincinnati cs a delegate in 1876, and
in the summary call for a legislative
caucus for the election of 3. D. Cam
eron to .succeed his father in the U.
S. Senate to assemble within twen-
t3-four hours after the elder Came
ron's resignation., Our convictions
were strongly averse to the personal
supremacy that ruled over the dele
gates at Cincinnati, and the blind
following of Mr;Davis, and his col
league there, against a large majori
ty of the Republicans they were sent
to represent. We were as strongly
averse to the summary manner in
whi& the election of J. D. Cameron
thetoe United States Senate to suc
-ceed his his father was accomplished;
We criticised the , action of Mr. Da
victa in Anna mann, az wa Colt dio
cumstances demanded. Not in any
spirit of personal malice or vindifc
tiveness on our' part, but because of
our conviction, that that kind of per
sonal supremacy over the party
would ultimately work its ruin. We
therefore determined to wage a reso
lute crusade' against that kind of
machine politics.
Since the election of Mr. Davies to
the Senate for a second time h e has
given ample : evidence that his con
victions in regard to the dtuagerous
tendencies of personal or machine
rule- over the Republican party of
Pennsylvania is in full accord with
our own and with a decided majority
of his constituents. He came' nobly
to the fore in the Senatorial contest
at Harrisburg last winter, and rose
to the dignity and l standing of_ an
the people. Having -full faith in his
good intentions we have buried the
past with the past, and earnestly
desire his nomination and election to
the office of State Treasurer this
fall, for which he is eminently fitted.
Mr Davis; instead of being a mere
follower in the lead of men, who lead
wrongfully, has the capacity, if •he
would cultivate the moral courage to
lead boldly for the right, to make
himself one of the most prominent
men in Pennsylvania. _ This position
we would be gratified to see ihim
achieve through right action. In ev
ery laudable effort to achieve it . he
may rest assured of our most-cordial
support • We shall not, however
surrender to him or to any other pub
lic servant of the people, clothed with
official trust at their hands, the right
of just criticism of their official action.
We have heartily sustained Mr.
Davies on all occasions. when his - ac
tion met the approval of the best
-public judgment, and we have fear
lessly spoken out when. it did not.
Though most unjustly assailed for
such action, we Canireely And calmly
overlook and forgive the assaults,
. 4 ' since events must have- convinced
the most captions of our opposers
' that we were in the right. Now
Senator Davis . prosecute your can-
vase vigorously. We are convinced
that - the honorable reputation you
madp at Harrisburg last winter
reaches to the borders of the State,
and no man in the party is looked
upon with more favor than yourself.
Notiithstanding past differences,
now settled and overlooked, we will
do all we can properly do to achieve
your nomination and election.
The change of base at Albany, does
not seem to have brought the Legis
latnre of New York any nearer to au
agreement upon the choice of Sena
tors than before the holding of the
caucus by the administration Repub-
lican• members and the nomination
of Lapham and Miller. Mr. I?epew
declined a 'caucus nomination; and
Mr. Platt- has withdrawn from the
contest, yet Mr. Conkling's friends
the help of the Democratic mem•
bers, persist in preventing an election:
The friends of Mr. Conkling have
proposed a compromise on Wheeler
and Grant. This is refused by ad
ministration men, and the question
of the eligibility of general Grant is
raised. It would certainly. appear
that he is ineligible iander section
: three article three of the Con stitution
of the United States ; "no person
shall, be a Senator who shall not have
attained the age of thirty years, and
been nine years a'citizen of the Uni
ted States, and who shall not, when
elected, be an inhabitant of the State
- for I:chichi:le shall be chosen." Gen
- eral Grant is not an inhabitant of
- the State of New York, and is there
fore ineligible as a Senator of that
We can see no possible justification
for the notion of lir. Conkling and
his friends' in preye - nting an election.
We hnd, - ,hoped that. the ,ememency
threatened by /he attempted allassi
nation of the President, world have
brought the COnkling members of
the Legislature to a sense of The ita
portence of choosing two Senators
for New York at once. In this we
disappointed, as the country is dis
appointed. New York is humiliated
by the disgrace of the contest
brought upon her bra petulant and
self-important Senator who betiayed
her trust.

How Mrs. Garfield Met Her
Husband--Brave Little Mollie.
The Washington correspondent of
the New York Times gives this affect
ing narrative of the, meeting of, Mrs.
Garfield with the President after_ the
shooting :
At the porch of the White Ho#se the
almost broken-hearted wife was met by,
her son, James A. Garfield, Jr., Mrs.
James and Attorney-General Moveagb.
She placed her hands in those of Mrs.
James, and directing a piercing inquiry
into her eyes exclaimed interrogative
ly: '"Well?" "Oh, everything is go
ing on beautifully," said Mrs. James,
in reply, 'only he must not be excite 4.
You Must be very Calm when you meet
him.' Mrs. Garfield had nerved her
self for the ordeal, and she answered
simply, but with great firmness, 'I cap
do it.' The party then went sadly up
the stairs, 'young . James A. Garfield
with his arm about his mothers's waist.
Arrived in the library, everybody but
Mrs. Garfield pawed, and'the doctors
withdrew with bowed beads from the
President's chamber. Mrs. tiarfieid
passed quickly in and the door was
closed. Of that solemn meeting be
itween husband and wife no record will
'ever be given The two were alone to
gether without witnesses. At the end
of about 15 minutes ihe door opened
and Mrs. Garfield came slowly out.
There were: no tears in her eyes, and
she walked with a firm step and - took
her lea in, the library. She was very
brave and bore up nobly under the .
As sue leit the room Mrs. James passed
In.' The President was smilingand he
beckoned with his Ling - M.lO the lady to
approach. She leaned over the Presi
dent and he said:— you met
Crete?' Mrs. Garfield's Christian name
is Lucretia, and Crete is the pet name
by which the President always speaks
of her. 'Yes, I have•met her," said
Mrs. James. 'And how did she act;
how did she bear it?' was the next
eager question. 'She bore it like the
true wife of a true soldier,; -.answered
Mrs. James. 'Ail, the dear -little wo
man,' exclaimed the President,.
Would rather die than this should cause
a relapse to her.'
Soon after Miss Mollie retnineit to
the room. She, too, was very) brave,
and forced herself to "simme r 's calm
ness which she coulUnot ,feel. Ad
steadily toward her father'i4
he lay on' what was supposed to be his
ditath-bed, she said: 'Oh, papa, I'M
so glad to get back to you, but I'm
*lorry to see you in this way.' Theli
she kissed him, and the President, put.
ting his' arm around", her neck, ex
claimedi 'Mollie, you're a brave, good
little girl." Well, I'm not going to
talk with you. nowt said the stout
hearted little girl,' as she tenderly re ,
moled his arm from her neck; 'wait
till you get well,' and with these part
ing words she kissed him and again
turned and walked from the room, fol
lowed by a beaming smile from the,
Prim the moment of Mrs. Garfiela's
visit to him the President seemed . to
gain in strength and spirits, and if he
recovers the doctors say that it will be
due greatly to the, presence of his de
voted wife.
,After Mollie had left him
he turned over; and with one hand
clasped firmly in one of \ 'Mrs. James',
and his head resting upon her other
hand, he fell into "a gentle sleep. In
half an hour, however, he awoke and
complained of a pain in his fat. It
did not last long, and he dozed again,
still holding the hand of Mrs. James.
This time he slept& little over halt an
hour, and Irhen he woke he said- to
Mrs. James: 'Do you know where
Mrs. Garfield is now?' 'Oh, Mrs.
James answered, 'she is close by,
watching and 'praying for her-busband.'
He looked up to the lady with an anx
ious face, and said: want her to go
to bed. Will you tell her that I say if
she will undress and go to bed I will :
turn right over, and I feel sure that'
when I know she is in bed I can go to
sleep and sleep all night. Tell her,' he
exclaimed with sudden energy. 'that I
will_ sleep all night if she wilt only do
what Task.' Mrs. James conveyed the
message to Mrs. Garfield, who said to
her at once: IR, - back and tell him
that I am. undressing.' She rctinned
with the answer, and the Paiddent
turned over on his right sid#' and
dropped into a quiet sleep almost in
stantly. ' . •

The President passed a most com

more' nourishment during the past eigh-

been' retained and perfectly assimilated.
TO relieve him as far as possible,
frOut the oppression caused by the in

put into operation a. simple refrigera

hours have elapsed since the apparatus
was put in operation- it has made a
perceptible change.
The day has been comparatively a
quiet one at the Executive Mansion,

the President invariably takei•it with.?
out any effort, and as a rule, appears
to relish it. An exception to the rule
however, occurred this afternoon. The
President asked for a drink, and _Gen.
Swain handed him some milk to which
the phyeicians had added a small quan
tity of old rum; The President after
drinking it looked at Gen. Swaim with
a distasteful expression and said,
"Swaim, that's the rum dose, isn't it?"
The. President continues to take chick.
en broth occasionally, with good- results.
He suffers no internal pain from the
wound, but experiences cousid•
erable soreness of the muscles
No one excepting , Mrs. • Garfield and
the attendants have been admitted to
the sick chamber to-day, it being the
desire to keep the President perfectly
quiet. Earl} , this afteraoon, General
Swaim says the President desired to
see one of the bulletins which he heard
some one speak of ai having been issu
ed. The latest bulletin was brought
from the Secretary's office and handed
him. After perusing it he remarked
smilingly that it did not think it neces
sary to post his name before the coun ,
try every few hours. Geueril Swaim
thinks that with to-day the greater
part of the danger will pass, end un
less something unfavorable occurs, of
which. there is at praent no indication,
the President will graduilly improve,
and his ultimate recovery be merely a
question of time. His recovery will
necessarily be slow and tedious, but in
my opinion he is now on the sunray

Ptesident last night says that he res

ness he inquired after different gentle
men connected with the Mansion and
spoke in a 'general way with reference
;to what was going 'on in the 'House.
The strict instructions of the phy l
sicians against the President's talking
any: more than is necessary will not.
pe*it' any extended conversation, in
asmuch as the attendants, in constr.

hypodermic injection of a quarter

A Truce to Bts►tfe.
In such a national l orisis as the pees
eat all party strife 61106 M cease. The
man or the newspaper that encourages it
is a traitor to the gcreernment, Whoever
charges the opposite party or faction
with bringing about. directly or Lodi
rectly, the crime of Guiteau, will be
held responsible at the bar of public)
opinion for.the disastrous consequences
that may ensue. The people are dis
posed to take a reasonable view of the
-crime and the criminal. They ire pe
tient, law-abiding and patriotic. They
will not believe that any American pub
lic men could become parties to such a
desperate act as that of the assassin,
unless tbeiv-passions should be infhun
ed by the desperate reports and devices
of the newspapers. But if one faction
tries to criminate another in Guitemes
villainy, the assailed faction will retort
with counter charges and criminations.
There will then Come' on a controversy
as dangerous to the Pease-and *slaty of
the nation as it will be disgraceful to
the country and shocking to the senPi
bilities of all decent citizens.,—Roches
