The result in Ohio is more a rebuke
of . the disrespect with I which the
memory of the lamented Garfield, so
fondly -therished by the true Republi-
cans of Ohio and the nation, has been
treated by the adhearants of the ad
ministration, than a falling away from
the principle 3 of the Republican party.
The same feeling pervades the Repub
lican party in Bradford County _ and
We observe that our contemporary,
the Journal, a pretended Independent
paper, joins in the crusade with Webb
& Co. to smirch the political standing
Jadwin and supports . Overton.
This course is a-kind of independence,
• that the voters of the county= do not
comprehend. How long cioep the
Journal Propose to be a. tag to -the
kite of . the bosses and help them to
' force their jobs on Ithe people?
The !Republicans of Susquehanna,
may as well understand that Mr. Over
ton will not be able to deliver, so fai.
as Mr. Searle is concerted, the goods
he has promised him from Bradford
two years hence. The Republicans
cf Bradford will not again be betrayed
' into placing the destinies of the county
in Col. Overton's bandit. While they
are ill favor of ( — dealing justly with
Susquehanna, they.will not ratify Mr.
Overton's bargains with Searle.
• When Mr. Overton's friends charge
that Mr. Jadwin is a Cameron man,
just point them to.his record as a, dele
gate from this district, with 0. D. Kin- •
ney, Esq. at Chicago to the Republi;
can National Convention.. He was
there an active supporter of Blaine and
voted steadily until the Blaine forces
broke for Garfield, when he voted for
Garfield. Don. Cameron was a mem
ber of the Pennsylvania delegation at
Chicago, and exerted every possible
power, first by dictatorial threats, and
then- by profuse promises, to induce
Mr. Jadwitt to vote with the 306 for
Grant. He refused to wear the collar,
and bears no 306 medal on his person.
There was no perfidy in his case, but
he stood firni as a rock true to the
sentiment ! of his district. •
We ha read several published in
terviews purporting to give Col. Over
ton's statement respecting his candi
dacy and nomination for Congress,
none of them bearing his signature.
They are the merest pettifoging sub
terfuge. He employs the quibbles of
a lawyer and does not meet the points
— at. issue. If be will affirm the alle
gations contained in these published
interviews by his own signature, we
pledge ourselves to confront them with
the contradictory . , testimony of twenty
as reliable gentlemen as there is in
Bradford County. - Mr. Jadwin makes
no statement which he is unwilling to
affirm by his own signature and take
all the responsibility.
The cry tin 1880 with Cameron,
Conklin aid their cohorts was "let the
party die u ) ith Grant I Last year :he
bosses put up Bailey, a three-hundred
- and4ixer for State Treasurer, and
said, "take him or nothing I" "Let the

Last year it was "let 4 the pat)? '.die

The thing that seems to be most

tare of Bradford county. ' They go
about attempting to excite prejudice in
the-minds of the people by asking them
if they want Elsbree, Williams, Hol

county. As though the qu4tion Qf

Mr. Jadwin; as to "who in Bradford
would control the patronage ; in case
of his nomination ?" Mr. Jadwin fun
wered squarely: "
- You gentlemen,reon

reliable and honorable man with whom
I may advise." Here is an example

The inference from the above is plain
that Col. Overton favored the election of
Mr. 'Keifer to the Speakership and had
written Mr. Jadwin on the subject.
When Congress convened it became ap
parent that Mr. 'Hiseock was weighted with
the' numerous important_porations then held
under the administration by New York,.
She had the President, the Secretary of the
and the Postmaster-General. It
in come:pence of this *that 'she
was not entitled to the , Speakership. Mr.'
Hiscock failed to secure a united delegation

out of seventeen, including Mr. Jadwin in
this seven, for dm. In view Of the impro
bability of securing any recognition for
Pennsylvania in the organization of the
House with • the delegation divided on
Speaker, Mr. Jadwin, who was an ardent
supporter of Hon: Edw'd McPherson, of
Pennsylvania, for Clerk, went to Mr. His
coclrprior to the caucus, anitinformed him
of the situation, and withdrew loaf implied
obligation to support him. He went with
delegation for Mr. Keifer, of Ohio, en ardent
supporter.of Garfield, for Speaker, and who
ihad President Garfield lived, would hive
remainede one of the warmest supporters of
bisadministration. He joined with a ma
jority of the delegation , in securing the
nomination andelection of Hon.. Edw'd
McPherson, to t he Clerkship of the House,
thOuth he was bitterly opposed by Senator
Canieron by all the influences he was able
to bring to bear against him, and two
members of the delegation, special' friends
of Senator Cable on, walked out of the
MUCUS and refised to participate in Mr.
McPherson's nomination. It will be seen
from the above facts; what consistency or
honesty there is pi the charge made by Col.
Overton and his friends that Mr. Jadwin
compromised hila independence of Camer
on's rule-by voting for Speaker Keifer.

Performance of his duty as a member: •
We' notice: that some of, our Republican
contemportiries are urging the claim for
Continued radical ascendancy in this con
gressional district on the ground that i the
Hon. C. C. Jadwin has 'made a record at
Washington which cannot be successfully
assailed p-ithin or without his own party.
This claim is based on the following points
in his official career:
First, that he voted for
1. A commission to investigate the ale°-
l ie liquor trade.
2. A select committee on woman suffrage.
3. The agrienbaired appropriation bill.
4. The antipolygamy.lhM.
5. ,The Geneva award
6. The rejection of George Q. Cannon as
delegate from Utah.
7. =protect innocent Users of pat
8. The extension of bank charters.
9. The return of the JaPanese Indemiity
10. To reduce internal revenue Mastic*:
11. For the tariff commission.
Secondly, that he voted aQaiaat
2. - 11fe river and harbor blll in all of its
34 The Senate amendment giving Sena
tors!' extra mileage at extra sessions.
We are reedy to admit th a t in the main,
than , votes are all creditable to Mr. Jadwin
andisatisfacbiry to his Wayne county ion
stittients. But can the same be said as to
the entire district--4 rather the leaders of
the political organization whiCh he immedi
ately represents I If so, why do we find
the republicans of Bradford county renomi
nating Mr. Overton, *hose renrd on mat
ters of public and private intend, when he
was in the, House of Representatives, was
almost diametrically opposed to that of Mr.
Jadwinl And why do we find the radicals
of Susquehanna county still ;farther com
plicating the matter of the succession by
putting forward Mr.. D. W. .Searle, who
has as yet no record, ood or bad I •
This nutter t of Mr.-Jadwin's reconi is a
sword which cats both ways. If it is to bo
paraded as showing that the public can
safely trust n Congress a than who 'man
their interests his own, and who is idirayis
to be found voting against say infringe
ment of their rights or squandering of their
money, Whydo we not find' a universal
sentiment in; fiver of his being •returnedr

part of the unwritten law of district 'polities,
that' a meniber of either the Natal:mil 'or
State Legislature is entitled to a renomina
tion if he has discharged the duties of h
trustwith fidelity I As between Mr.. Jad:
win and a Democratic nominee, if that
choice may yet be offered us; it is neadhis
to 'say that we shall do what we can to'
compass the defeat of the former • but as
between Mr. Jadwin and any Re p ublican

I came home late Wednesday evening,
August 23d, and learned that Col. Overton
was then announced as a candidate for
Congress. The next morning he came into
my office and informed me of the fact, pro

day I would have devised some plan by
'which he might have withdrawn from the
field, without 'sustaining injury by reason
of his having become , al candidate. He
, complained of parties tor whom he bad
done favors being against. him, when they
ought to be for him, and claimed that Mr.
Jadwin and his friends' had been saying
that they could beat: hie; and that he did
not see how he could get out o f the field
without admitting his weakness , and asked
me what he had better do. I told him that
on account of my absence from town for
several days, I knew nothing 'of the situa

On Friday morning I sent for him to

Editor of the. Republican:— --,
am truly •gled to nee yon COMO
out stimig , in defence thelsist friend the
old soldier has in this'district4-- He has been
shamefully . cheated, but I hope and believe
the ripubhcans are not mean enough to
help Mr. Overton carry out his scheme.
Mr. Jadwin is the real choice of the people,
and I believe they will support him. I take
no stock in Senator Mitchell's little scheme
but if I cannot vote for Mr. Jadwini will
not vote at all. It Mr. Overton owns the
county convention he does not own the
voters. I last winter called on Mi. Jadwin
for his personal aid in the interest of forty
claimants for pensions, and he gave prompt .
'and cheerful attention to each case. Com
rades, it is a duty we owe to him and to
ourselves also to vote for C. C. Jadwin.
He is one of us. His friends and justice
demand our support. Also let us show that
although we may be imposed upon in making
the nomination, yet we, comrades, will
show that it is one thing to put up a; job
and quite another to get us to indorse their
dirty work. I will, if I live, vote for. C.'C.

wee thine, and ;had some hopes the* he
could carry the county; and advised me
to corns there u soon as I could get away
from Washington. ;,
As soon thereafter as my duties would
permit, I went to Towanda; expecting that .
Col. Overton's attitude toward me would be
stated in substantially these terms: "You
and your county have given Bradford the
Congressional nomination for three suc
cessive terms, and for two of these 'terms
it was given to me. On this , last occasion
your county gave me a second term by
directly naming me as its choice, and the
conferees from your county, firmly resisted
a concerted attempt on the part Susque
hanna and Wyoming to defeat in nomina
tion, followed by an o rganised against
me. I now feel it my duty to return the
compliment by carrying Bradford county
for von." - , ,
Oit meeting 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 shoidd have no possible object
in becoming one except to preserve his
prestige at home. If he ran, it would be'
for this purpose only, and not with a view
to prevent my nomination. He had be
said, one or two objects in running. For
instance, any other aspirant who might
secure the nomination by the Bradford
convention would be in a position tO con
trol the patronage of the county; therefore
said he,l must prevent this by , contro li ni
it inieef. Then'again, said he,
keep myself in line , and keep others out of
line, for the nomination, when it again
comes to Bradford, some eight or ten years
hence, for I may then feel hie re-entering
palitaal life. This conversation took place
Saturday morning August:l9. It was then
agreed between us that we should meet •-•
the following Tuesday evening, and that he
should then decide whether he would be a
candidate. Smalling, however, precipi
tated his derision; for on Monday afternoon
he announced himself publicly as a condi
dite. On Tuesday afte_.• we met, and
he informed me of • He did
this In peculiarly apo • •c terms. He
said' that he never felt meaner in his life
than at that moment, in conse que nce of
his conduct, that he was about ddfig the
most ungrateful and dishonorable act, of
his life,• that his conclusion had windy . de
prived him of his sleep the previous mght,
but that he could not enter into any ex
ploitation, further than to say that he was
involued in complications as tope nt ing to
other parties, and must run. -. • ' ;
Having heard his statement, 1 responded,
that there was nothing - for me, za_ this
situation; and after acme further observe- -
tient in the same 1
vehx, I mid that having
come into the count - 3 , could embrace the
mortunity of visiting some of my friends
in different localities. During the next
three days I found a strong sentiment pre
vailing in favor of my re- nomination. On
the following Friday, and again on Satur
day he assured me that he had no desire to
go to Congress then, that he was only a
candidate for the purpose of maintaining
his prestige, and that all his centimes
should be for me as their second choice, and
he desired me to arrest the growing boom
in my favor as the candplate of the oounty,-
by assuring my friends that we had reached
an understand ing satisfactory to myself,
and that he would guard my interests in
I re parted from Col.Overton with
this asarance, and with the conviction that
my canvass required no ferther attention
in Bradford county. On my return home,
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
current comment on the subject. I dicier,.
ed my full confidence in col. Overton's
good faith=-also authorizing the publication
of my views on this point in the Honesdale
Citizen—and did all in my power tci re-assure
the Republicans of Wayne County in this
Between the date of my return and the
meeting of the conference, however, I
learned that Col. Overton was inventing
excuses, and' grasping at' everyretext,
however trivial, for taking an att itude of
hoitility to me; and that he assumed to hold
me responsible for every view that found
expression in any form, adverse to his can
Nevertheless I went to Tankhannock ex
pecting to be nominated at the first session
of the conference. But it soon became
apparent that my confidence in Col.Overton
was misplaced. Ilia conferees were mani-'
featly gentlemen of - high character, intelli
gence and independence, having at heart
the best, interests of the, Republicans of
Bradford. The terms of their appointment
bound them to support Col. Overton while
he remained a candidate; but they all assur
ed me of their support as soon as he gave
the word releasing them from their obliga
tion to him. None of them had been given
to understand by Col. Overton that he - Was
not an earnest contestant for the nomina-'
tion,_ and there was nothing to , : indicate ,
that .the "prestige" theory had ever been
presented to them as the foundation of his
On Fraley Col. Overt:on assured me that
he would that morning give the word for
his conferees to vote for me. But it was
not given. At a - later hour he inquired
when the afternoon trains left, and propos
ed that my nomination should be made so
that we could leave immediately afterward.
Before the . afternoon session, however, it
became manifest that the S uehanius
conferees had in some nnezplaiaea manner
been -won over to. Bradford. I was the
mere surprised at this 'sh ad received
numerous letters from prominent Republi
cans in Susquehanna assuring me that
under no circumstances could Mr. Searle
carry his conferees over to Bradford. Col.

garded as their dutyin view of this purpose

that if Col. Overton had selected them with
the understanding that they were to stand

A VOICE FROM A iirmag, COUNTY
, Hon. H. B. Larrabee, County Super.
intendent of schools for Wayne - County,
and the nominee for . State Senator by
the Republicans of Wayne, was called
to preside over the Independent mass
meeting which assembled at Honesdale
on Thursday October 12. The! meet
ing was addressed by . Hon. Charles S.
Wolfe of Union, and E. K.. Martin
Esq. of Lancaster, • ,
On taking the , chair Mr Larabee
(spoke as follows:
Ladies and Gentlemen:—.l sincerely
thank you for this marked compliment.
To be called to preside - -over this in
telligent audience, gathered in so noble
a cause, and to have the Privilege of
1 presenting to you the distinguished
gentleman who will address you this
evening I consider a high honor. - I
have no apology to offer for the posi- :
tion I occupy under' existing circum
stances, for I ,hold that it is the right
and duty of :every citizen, whatever
may be his occupation' or position, to
ke part in political affairs. Permit
!in • 'Oat few words.
The' Amer ican
. people area. mii,„ffnani
mous and forgiving people; but there
are wrongs , which they will not and
ought hot forgive or forget - . We have
been taught that the great glory of this
nation consists in its being a govern
ment of,,for, and by the people, that in
the people alone is sovereignty vested,
that we obey the mandates of no king,
prince, or ruler, but that the "will of
the people is the highest:law." But we
remember well, forbut little more ;than
two years have intervened that 'three
min in pcsitions of influence and power
forked a conspiracy to change all this
—to take from the people the right of
choosing their chief magistrate, and in
stead of a government of the people, to
make this an aristocracy, controlled by,
a small 'junta of ambitious and unscru
pulous politicians. We remember how
the Pennsylvania 'convention was called
in mid=winter,.taken by the throat and
compelled to declare in favor. of Grant
and the "unit rule, ', instead , of obeying
the well known a nd recognized will of
the Republicansof - the Keystone.. State
and giving the vote' 'of Pennsylvania
tot Pennsylvania's favorite son, one of
the greatest statesmen thaterica
has ever produced, James G. Blaine
[cheers]. We did not, however, at
that time realize L. the- magnitude, the
far reaching consequences an i power
of this conspiracy. •We began to un
derstand it better when happily their
well laid plot wa.sfrustrated, and yet
we did not fully 'comprehend it. Not
until we saw the few months of Presi
dent Garfield's official life. - embittered
by an unceasing and causeless warfare,
not until we had followed' him to the
grave, not until we had seen his suc
cessor, in defiance of the desires of the
American people and his solemn pledge
before the nation, undo the work so
nobly begun, not until we had seen
his trusted advisors hurled from posi
tions of trust and influence, his friends
punished. and his enemies reivarded,
and not until then, as if to heap abuse
upon abase, did we see the systematic
and repeated attempts to vilify Gar
fleld7s sacred memory and begin to
fully comprehend this conspiracy or
the terrible wrong attempted upon the
people of thiination. •
Now, ladies and gentlemen, two of
these conspirators are on trial —Con
kling in New York and Cameron_ in
Pennsylvania. Elect Cameron's ticket
and the people of this commonivealth
place the seal of their approval upon
slUthese methadii, upon all that this
conspiracy implies; defeat it, as it is
sure, to be defeated, and neyer, 'again,
however exalted in power he may be,
however intrenched by patronage and
influenceorill any , man dare to defy
the will of the people of this common
wealth- [applause I. .
Gentlemen, let us refer once more
to Chicago. Fortunately ftor the good
name of the Keystone State there I was
a minority of the delegation who re
fused to obey 4111. dictates of, Cameron,
while a majority obeyedJ their chief.
Of the latter one from @entre county
chose to defy the expressed' wishes' of
his constituents and obey the coma
Imends of his ruler and is now .- before us
for our suffrages for the high office of
Governoriof - our State.- But. while
Cameron 'says - "yes," the people of
Pennsylvania say "no." On the other
hand, our honored delegate him
Wayne chose rather to defy th , ' "bois"
and obey the will of the peop le, and
while Cameron . may - say "no,' the in
dietitians are the people of the Fifteenth
Cougressitnal district will lay '"yes,"
(cheers) and will declare that Horn ,
C. C. Jadwin, who has bien.i, faithful
to the people, shall represent thhi die
trhlt in the next Congress of the United
Stilt"- (Prolonged cheers);
Gentlemen, we have no personal 'con
troversary, -no personal quarrel. % We
reoognise the, right of every oian to , be
In favor of Cameron and Beaver, if . he
wants to be and we ask only .that the',
, Baum right of course be accorded :to us,'
