The Independents or Wayne County,
Alt a -tnass meeting have formally in
dorsed the candidacy of ion. C. C.
Jadwin for Congress.
The leading English newspaper says of
us, that "While other nations have been
loading themselves with increased indebted
- s ness, this nation has been rapidly unloading,
not by repudiating its obligations, but by
.honestly ,paying them and refunding the un
paid debt at lowerirates of interest."
Of stalwartistn, or 306-iam pUre and
simple, there is in Bradford County,
just enough to make a disturbance
and put up jobs that create indigna
tion and revolt. The Republicans of
the county
.have no sympathy wish
that - kind of politics born of bossisii.
'The ,Democratic orators at their
meeting in this place on Friday last
spoke with pathetic veneration pf the
memory of the 'late David Wilmot,
Abraham Lincoln, and James A. r Gar
field. Having no Democratic sides
men, whose memory they could vene
rate for.any commendable public ser
vice, they acknowledged the ineritori T
ons services of the lamented deceased
statesman who devoted a life service
to the cause of •HepUblicanism. They
forgot to drop even.a tear for the late
Samuel J. Tilden.
NO BOSSES..N.NO 11011111111.
CANDIDATE IN 11111111Z.D.-
The following telegram was
. reoeaved
from Hon. C. C. Jad7in Wcailidey
st:temoon :
i'rettdford Rrpttbliean:—
I the nomination tendered 'Me by
the Republicans 'of Wayne, and offer my
self as the peoples' . candidate in the district;
Letter of acceptance next .
Some time about the middle of
August we met Col. Overton near ',the
Citizens National Bank, and he for the
first 'time *an a conversation 'in - re=
lotion to his becoming a candidate in
Bradford County - for Congress. ' 'On ,
that occasion, being implesseario doubt
with the injustice of : any attempt to
wrest',- the nomination from' Wayne
County and from Mr. Jadwin, where: it
honestly belonged % he voluntarily stated
to us: -"I know ilie _ nomination aoes
not belong to Bradford County, and it
will not come here this time. The
nomination honestly belongs to Mr.
JadWin and to Wayne County. I
desire to he named for 'Congress by
Bradford in order that I may protect
' Mr. Jadwin's interest at the conference,
and maintain my own prestige in the
county and kcep other aspirants out.,,
I am for Mr: Jadwin myself and. if
the conferees are given to me he will
be certain of the nomination,"we said "if
this is your purpose, we will not oppose
your candidacy in - Bradford County, i
but Mr. Jadwin's friends must be. .as
sured of the integrity of your purpose."
He reassured us of his intention and
we seperated. A weett or ' more later
while 'Mr..lndwin, at Col. Overton's
written request was here in the county,
we met him again in the Ward House,
and he sought an interview and drew
us aside for that purpose. He, seemed
1 under some excitement and complained
that the friends of Mr. Jadwin were
active hi his su port.
r t
The eVldence of
Mr. Jadwin's pular following in this
county appeared to excite him,, = We
said to him "COl. Overton, if your
pledges as made to us, 'are made in
good faith, and' yogi ; will permit Mr.
Jadwin's friends to have their choice of
conferees, you' will have no difficulty
in the matter." He replied "I - intend
to put N. C. Elsbree, who is a pro
nouneed Jadwin man at the head of
the conferees, and who will
act with him,, and you know what that
means." Haying satisfied 'us that he
intended to keep his pledges, no forth;
er conversation occurred at that time.
There was no further conversation be
tween us until' the day of the conven
tion, when he poke to us in the pres
ence of Mr. D r aiiiel Innes, of . Canton,
and asked if 'fie would have any objec
tion to Air. Ines as a conferee. Be
fore answering him Nin said, "Mr.
Tunes have you any predisposition or
prejudice that would prevent your sup ,
porting the nomination of Mr. Jadwiri,
in case you are made a conferee?" Mr,
Innes answered, "none whatever," and'
we, still relying upon Col. Overton's
good faith, said the appointment of
Mr. Ines would be satisfactory to us,
The allegation as ; published in the
Review that Col.' Overton showed us
his list of proposed conferees is untrue,
he will not hi self pretend that he did
so, Had he done so, we would not
have objected to any of the men, be.
cause we relied implicitly upon Col.
Overton's honor.
Upon his plegeS, we, with numbers
of both his own and Mr. Jadwin's
friends earnestly requested many dele
gates at the convention not to disturb
the harmony of the convention by at
tempting poiinstruct for Mr. ,Jadwin,.
assuring them that there was a full un
derstanding between Col. Overton and
Jadwin'an 0 their friends,_ and the
result was to be the nomination of Mr.
Jadwin. Henee the convention named
Col. Overton. From the day of the
convention until the evening after the
conference had closed its session and
nominated Col Overton, we had no
conversation with him on the' subject.
At no time prior to his taking the nom.
motion did he modify or change the
i pledges he had volnntarily - given - os or
inform us as one of Mr. iladWin's
friends, of Oriental reservation or pur
poseg. to violatchem. We met him in
the Ward Douse on the evening of the
day the nomination was made. He
came to the seat where we were sit
ting in conversstion with friends, and
opened a conversation upon the subject.
We then inforimed: him in .l'terms lie
could.understand; not fail to that we
woirld,not support him and gave him
our reasons, which are suffi.cient to
govern our action, were there none
__Eye believe now, that had not two
or three men, arid we may as well
name them, we mean James H. Webb,
Judge - Morrow', and A. J. Layton, in
particular, worked upon his 'Prejudices
until they excited his Jnedn+, to a
method, with the purpoSe of 4feating
Mr. Jadwin to whom they were op =
posed because he would not be bossed
by them, he, (Overton) would have
kept hie pledges. Regardless: of the
established precedent's of the iilistrict,
regardless of ''''honor, regardless of
pledges, regardless of the interests of
the Republican party of the district,
ind regardless of the party's. will they
Put up and pushed Col. Overton up to
consummate the "job." . .
The Republicans of the district now
, _
have our reasons ' for not supporting
Col. Overton, and we defy Col.' Over
ton,or anybody else to succesaftilly con
tradict them.
No member of Congresi • labored
more earnestly or more, successfully
for the interests of his State and
constituents than Contains C. .Tadwin
of the Fifteenth District. I : _
hehlgefOL:P-Yertetli'-fter T seising
nominitliiirhich ou r _county tUi
intention of him , the rotate
that Mr;'Jadvrin hid made is pledge,
two years aim not to be a -candidate
for renomination, is . the thinnest. It
is not pretended that' such a Ipledge
was given Col. Overton; and dm. plea
is, in substance, that Col. Overbm was
justified in breaking his own pledge to
carry Bradford county in the\ interest
of Mr. Jadwin, because of a story that
Mr. Jadwin had made a Pledge to Col.
Searle:4hat is to say, he ;.violated
his own pleige as 'a means of entoricing
Mr. Jadwin's. This is the cinliuspect
which tibia defence can wear, - i even on
position tha t the supposition it is founded iri
fact. i
2...13it the allegation of a pledge is whol
ly without truth; as all the members of
the donterenc,e of 1880 well. -know. It
is abiolUtely denied by Mr. Jadwin
and his conferees; and when CoL &Ariel;
'conferees attempted to work it 0 the
recent conference they finally adMitted
that there was iro pledge, but that they .
understood Mr. ladwin to talk of run:
ning for one term.
Mr. Jadwin, at one period 'during
the protracted sessions - of the confer
ence of 1880, made the 'proposition,
which is the basis Of all this claptrap
about a-pledge. .Lie offered , a pledge,
that ;il.. .the Susquehannaconie s reos
would vote for-I*, he and; his friends
would carry Wane county for Sus
quehanna's nominee for the_ next term;
and prominent Republicans' of Wayne
assured Col. Searle that such a pledge
would be faithfully carried 'Out. COL
;Searle, however, refused to accept this
proposition; hence it. placed Mr. Jed;
win under no obligation. 'All tbat'Mr.
Jadwin said on this subject, from first
to last, was in connection , with this
proposition. -
The theory that Mr. Jadwin made
such a pledge voluntarily, and without
consideration, will -not bear a moments
examinatiOn. Col. Searle having de
clined to accept the pledge on the terms
plop:pal, there was no earthly reason
Ay Jadwin should repeat ,it
without any -conditions, and *when it
could bring him no aid. ,Tlie action of
the Susqitehamm conferees was not in
fluenced it all by the alleged pledge,
but they voted for Searle to the bitter
end, and had at no time any inten`tion
of helping,' to nominate` either Overton,
Jadwin; or Jennings. Even sifter
Bradford on the last ballot, had voted
for iadwiti r and i tlins assured his nomi
nation, the vote of Susquehanna was
still case solidly for Searle. All this
the Susquehanna conferees admitted at
Tunkhannock, and the basis of their
claim was finally narrowed down to
the theory that their refusal - to vote
for, either Overton, Jadwin or Jennings,'
ought to be mouldered equivalent to
voting for Jadwin.. The fact is well
established that what Col. Searle did
in 1880 was','ineeisely what he intended
to, do all through the canvasii; without
any pledge from Mr. Jadwil and' he
laid nobody under any obligations to
him,by doing !- it. .He adopted his
course and held to, it, rejecting all
propositions and the :pledges growing
out of them. The only, dyidencoto the
contrary is the Revietea roundabout
statement as to what Col.'-Overton,s
brother-in-law is said' to have heard.
The 'denunciatioiii lurk& ,by ` politi
cal bosses against Republicans who re
fuse-to support nominations made in
defiance of the mutt& will are tremen
dous. They put up jobs on the party
and bring defeat, and
_then charge all
Republicans who refuse to be a party
to their tricks with doing all the mis;
chief. Liye a miscreant who burns a
building, steals a horse or commits some
other foul deed, he blames 'the Officer
who arrests him and the law that im
poses the penalty for his misdeeds.
The party of this county, has endirred
the impositinns of_ party bosses as long
as, they will. They are about to give
notice that party methods must be
conducted upon a higher plane of
litical integrity. This is what the
candidacy of Hon. C. C. Jadwin means.
He is a pronounced Garfield Republi
can, a candidate independent of boss
rule. To all intents and purposes a
candidate of the people and for the
peeple.. He voted in defiance of Don.
Cameron's unit rule as 'a delegate at
Chieago, for the nomination of the
lairiented Garfield. Republicans who
would'rebuke the political malice, with
which * the memory . of that great and
good man has been follo‘ed by a class
of poison-tongued politicians: shOuld
exert all their energy to return Hon.
e. C. Jadwin to Congress. ;
The Democracy of Bradford gather
ed in force at their mass meeting in
this place on 1 t Friday afternoon and
evening. Th speakers were Mr.
Pattison, their candidate for governor,
Mr. Bonder, eneral Davis and Mr.
Mutchler.Tite afternoon meetinir, was
held in Mereni Hall, presided over by
Hon. Joseph Powell. The hall could
net accommodate the whole assemblage
and many remained outside unable to
gain admittance. More than double
the number - present in the afternoon
cameifin the evening, swelled by the .
crowds brought in by free trains over
the Lehigh. Valley. Mercut Hall and
the court house were both filled in the
evening, Col. T. F. Means presiding at
'the Court House, and Hon. Joseph
Powell at Mercur Hall. Mr. Pattison
'poke first in the Hall, and was follow- -
-ed by ldr. Mutchler, Mr. Reed: and
Ser --- 117r,Gordon. „
A the overflow ineetliutin, the Court
House, Mr. Pattissin also_ made a short
speech, and Mr. Gordon, Mr:,, !donde:
and General W.H. H.-Davis - spoke at
length. An unusual enthusiasm was
manifest, heightened, nci dorrbt, by Mt
news of tire recent Democratic victory:

"The Republican Convention-. which
reconvened on Wednesday last

Tuesday. AJI day . Wednesday *hen

.driaAed, but
notwithstanding the aboit notice -mid
the untoward weather three-fourths
'the townships: or election districts were
represented. One poor soldier,
gate, walked fourteen milekto . vote for
the tried friend -, of the adiers, and
another delegate walked twenty-seven
miles over = the roughest roads in: the
county for the purpose of attending.
It was manifest, long 'before the Con
vention assembled, by the deep fee*
exhibited by the delegate's - that the
nomination of Overton would be unani
nionsly repudiated. There was no
button-holing of the
_delegates against
'Overton,, but there was considerable
anxiety felt by some of the delegate"
that an attempt would be made by the
henchmen of Cameron to secure an en
dorsement of the frufikhannock nomi
nation. •
The proceedings of the Convention
will be found elsewhere: II the feel
ing in opposition — to
t Overton is .con
fined to Wayne county, and Jadwin
accepts his candidacy it will be a help
to Overton, for he is certain to take
the whole vote of the county, and 'as
there, is a democratic majority it prac
tically helps by just that number. We
are assured that Mr. Jadwin's following
in the other counties is very large. so
large that had he been the candidate
insteuti of Overton he would have re
ceived a, majority ranging between six
and eight thousand. Overton bad,
when he was not by great odds as un
popular as he now Is, but two thousand
majority in the district. 'lt is with
gOod reason doubted whether he can
carry Bradford county. It is known
that several hundred Republicans , in
Wyoming county would vote for a
Demi:writ in preference, and that quite
as large a number would do the : same
in Susquehanna county.
We hope Mr. Jadairin will decide to
take the nomination tendered him
Wednesday:night. Mr. Overton has
got to withdraw in any event, for the,
District is thready 1,34 to the Republi
4auaby his nomination. Every lover
lof wise and honest legislation, every
soldier, soldiers' mother, or widow, .or
orphan who has been waiting these
many long years for their just dues and
every man who has or may 'have busi
nm to transact in Washington, should
urge him to accept. He has shown
the overwhelming benefit of having an
alert, honest, conscientious, and hard
working business man in Congress.
The whole press of the country has
been teeming with commendation. of
his coarse. He has brought credit to
himself and his constituents and should
be continued where The can do continnal
We can assure the Independent that
"the feeling of opposition to Col. Over
ton" is not confined to Wayne County,
and that Mr. Jadwin's candidacy,
tkough "he is certain to - take the whole
vote' of the county" will not "be a help
to CC!. Overton," because Mr. Jadwin
will have a majority over him in the
other thr4e counties of the district.
As between Mr. Jadwin and a Demo.
crat with COL Overton •in the field,
Mr. Jadwin's unbounded popularity in
his own county, puts the election, of a
Democrat out of the question.
The methods employed to defeat
Jadwin's nomination are in keep
ing with the methods which have ruled
the party in• the State, under the direc
tion of boss Cameron for years, until
Republican victories have become a
thing of the past. There is good rea
son for suspecting that Cameron's hand
moved the Susqiiehanna conferees, and
will account for Col. Overton holding,
the Bradford eliferees thirty-eight
ballots without redeeming his - pleilge, /
waiting, for Susquehanna to ()hey'
Cameron's mien.
, The real milk in the cocoanut which
caused a few bosses to conspire for the do
feat of Mr. Jadwin's nomination, is in the
fact that he was a delegate in the Chicago
Republican National Convention, and disre
gard Bon Caineron's unit rule instill' ctionit
and voted for James G. Blaine, and then
for Garfield.- His action in Congress hint
been in keeping with his action at Chicago.
He has honored and pleased his conistitn- -
ents by promptly and efficiently attending
to their wants, and in voting to protect the
country against jobs in legislation. . The
river and harbor steal met his opposition at
every stage. The people appreciate Ida
faithfulness and will triumphantly elect him.
We observe by an extract from a letter
written by M. E. Lilley, one. of Overton's
conferees, and published in Alvord's &view,
that Mr. Lilley says: Mr. Jadwin inn talk
at Tunkhannock did not intimate to'-him
that Col. Overton was in' any way pledged
to his nomination. Why shoal Mr:`Jad
win: make such a plea to Col: Overton's
conferees I lie relied upon Col. Overton to
comply with his pledges. It was not his
business' to appeal to Col. Orston's con
ferees. He pursued an open and manly
course in all respects and relied upon Col,
Overton to do the same.
The War Department is cOnsideripg the
advisability of using carrier pigs as
bearers of messages, between military poste
on the plains. In the West the pigeon can
carry despatches with more rapilitif t and
safety than any Mounted courier; Mid as
rapid ounnumication is often absolutely
neciewary if small, i isolated commands are .
,to help one,another in time of danget,
proper mpplypigeons would save many
lives and avert the honors peculiar to

lows t ; .
i.J St=MT.
Shortly before ` 'l3elsgress : • adjourned,
received *letter from Col. Overton ' sug
gesting that "my fences in Bradford might
need a little - attentions"- that Mr. Ekiarle
eras there, and had scene , hopes that he
could atrey.thii °nutty; and advised me
to come • there as soon as I oink' get away
ham Washiegtoni.:;
As methersaftter ai any duties ivouid
permit, I went to Towanda, expecting that :
Col:Oierton's attitude toward me would be
stated in stbs
' tantially these terms: "You
and your acuity have given Bradford the
Con `onid nominatimi for three sue
e,terins, sad lck two of these terms
it was given to me. 'On this last occasion
your. countygrtioe me second tertfl by
directly naming me as its.,cheice;_and the
valorem . from yourcounty firmly : resisted
a concerted attempt on the part of. Swipe
henna and Wyoming to defeat my nomma
lion, an organized bolt against
me. I now feel it my duty to return the
compliment by Carrying Bradford county
for you."
On meting Col. Overton; I announced
that I should not in any event be a candi
date against him In his own county. 'He
said that he had not decided to be a can
didate, and should have no possible object ,
in becoming one except to preserve his
prestige at home. If he ran, it would be ]
for this purpose only, arid not with a view]
to prevent my nomination. He, had ho'
' said, one or two objects in running. For
nistance, any other aspirant who might
I secure the nomination by, the Bradford!
convention would be in a position. to can-1
trot the patronage of the county; therefore ,I
said he, I must prevent this by controlink
it myself. Then again, said he, I must
keep myself in line, and keep others out of;
line, forth° nomination, when it again;
comes to Bradford, some eight or ten yearsi
hence, for I may then feel like re-entering;
political life. This conversation took place,
Saturday morning August 19. It was their
agreed betweeu us that we should meet on;
the folkwing Tif i esday evening, and that he
should then decide whether he would be A
candidate. Something, however, precipP,
tated his decision.: for on:Monday afternoon
he announced himself publicly as a •candi-;
date. On Tuesday afternoon we met, and
be informed me of hisj p u rpose. He did
this in peculiarly apologetic terms. He t
said that he never felt meaner in his lif e
than at that moment, in consequence Of
his conduct, that he was about doing the'
most ungrateful and dishonorable act of
his life; that his conclusion had whelp de- ;
prived him of his sleep the previous night,
but that he could not enter Into any .ex
planation, further than to stay that he ions
involued in amtplicnticms as to promiso to
other parties, anctmust run: -
Having ;hard his statement, I respond 4
that there *ass nothing'-for me,
in this ,
situation; and { after some further observe*
tiers in the same ,vein, I said that having
come into the county I could embrace the
opportunity of visiting some of my friends
in different localities. During the next
three days I found a strong sentiment pre
veiling in favor of my re- nomination. On
the following Friday, and again on Satnr
dayhe aniured me that he bad no desire to

I therefore parted from Col. Overton with

Imy canvass required no further attention

many of my friends were skeptical as to
Col. Overton's purpose of being a candidate
in my behalf. I need not here repeat the

People wi , wept nerves and in inordi
nate capacity 4 belief, says the Philadel
phia North 'A e
kart; will be reassuted at
hearing that Crnll's comet, as the blazing
meteor which illuminates the eastern sky
at four o'clock in the morning is technically
called, is in process of disintegration, for at
least two astronomical experts of eminence
have beencandid enough to confess that
they regard the movements of this eccen
tric wanderer with considerable apprehen
sion. , They hasle figured it out that Crull's
comet which is now making its return jour
ney into the inter stellarspace will return
next year, When it will make a final plunge
into the sun, anil merge . its identity in the
seething incandescent mass of that great
luminary. jI , If it were only for the sake of
the sun or ilie comet, wo might look forward
to alb; &Mit With equanimity; but if this
comet, .
enormous o were to fall into the sun
there would be ' such a great and sudden
rise in the temperature of that body id
would make things decidedly unpleasant in
this sublunary sphere. But if the cennet . is
going to piecesi, another danger Lai been
safely passed.
disetissicf recently arose in a railroad
car at Portland, Maine, is regard to the
action of an . ofricial of the train in remov l .
ing from a seat the overcoat and valise of a
gentleman temporarily absent, to make
room fora new corner. The first occupant
of the seat returned and declared his right
to the place, a prominent judge who chanc
ed to lie present sustaining the claim. In
Canada-last week a simile' r 'cases:marred,
and in.both instances the decision was in
favor of the first occupant of the seat. The
matter is one of interest to' the traveling
public generally; and the decision in the
cases cited seem to us the . just one. The
only lair .wity of distributing - aLacs by
precedence: of arrival, and to. be able to
hold a place by leaving hand-baggage to
mark it is a custom of so universal conven
ience that lit deserves perpettiation and
.authorized recognition. •
Rev. Henry Warol. Beecher on the Bth
instant surprised the New York and Brook
lyn Congregational Association by formally
severing his connection with that body.
Mr. -Beecher announced that he took the
step because he didn't wish anybody or as-
Sedation to be responsible for, his views.
The association thought that Mr. Beecher's
statement of his religious belief wa& suffic
iently orthodox and requested him to with=
draw his resignation. The. only point- of
difference between Mfr. Beecher's views and
those held by orthodox authorities which
laymen could apprecinte appeared to be that
instead of believing: that man began as a
perfect being and be believed - that
man began at the lowest possible point and
had developed from that stage.
The exhibits of the Depart
,for the last fiscal year are in the
highest degree
, creditable and encouraging.
The money order 'depertnumt.realized a net
profit of three hundred and sixty thousand
dollais i E and.' the total excess of receipts
over; eXpenditures in the general account
amounted to considerably over one and
three quarter millions of dollars. A sign&
cant; item may be noted in the fact that
about two millions two hundred thousend
dollars remain unexpended of the appropri
ation , for Star ' route transportation, and
very large balances in hand are reported'of
other cognate appropriations. The absence
of ; Dorsey and Brady tactics evidently, tell
upon the expense accounts to a very favor
able extent. .
