Vote for the soldier's friend, Hon
C. C. JadVein; .
By voting for C. C. Jadwin, you
make the district safe.
No Republican who desires success
in the district will cast his vote for
Tuesday will close 4p the.. battle
Do your' duty and vote for C. C
A vote cast for Col. Overton is
thrown away becauie he stands no
possible chance of an election.
Vote for Hon. C. C. Jadwin as an
endorsement of his faithful services in
behalf of the people without respect , to
Vote for lion. C. C. Jadwin and
with more experience he will seAT the
people better in the coming Congress
than in the past..
"Revolutions never go backward."
This will be true in relation to Con
gress on Tuesdarnext. C. C. Lbw's
will be triumphantly elected.
The drift of 'popul4 sentiment is all
toward Hon. C. C. Jadwin. None can
be so blindias not to se' it and know
it. Put pita votes on him -'and suc
cess is doubly
Col. Overton talked with so many
men and made so many promises to
Mr. Jadwin's friends, that he has no
idea what he 'did say. We judge this
to be the case from his roundabout
How did it, happen that after saying
to Mr. Jadwin that he (Overton,)
"would have been satisfied to have'Mr.
Jadwin carry this county without op
position,"' he becomes the only candi
date against him and compassed his
defeat in the _conference? Will Col.
Overton please answer.
The great bulk of the RepUblicans
tnogressional district repudi-
ate the nomination of Col. _ iOverton.
Had Col. Overton regarded the pop- .
-War sentiment' of the district with
decent respect, and refused ,to
listen to advice inspired by malice,
he would not have placed himself
in the embarrassing 'positien he
now occupies. One thing is positively
xqrtain. His election is not among the
possibilities. That is conceded on all
hands. Mr. Jadwin can and will be
elected. Every Republican who would
make Republican success doubly sure
in the district should vote for Mr.
Jadwin no matter what their pref
erence may be. The Democrats
cannot poll more' than 10,000 votes
in the district this fall with the
best effort they can make for Mr.
Post. Mr. Jadwin's total, vote in
Wayne will not be less' than' 4,500;
His total vote in Susquehanna: and
Wyoming will not be less than 4,200.
His total vote in Bradford will, not be
less than 4,500. Making his total vote
in the district 13;200. This is our
candid judgment of the 'situation as
it now stands, from a careful survey of
the field based upon information from
reliable sources from every county in
the district. - It dem3iistrates the non
sense of throwing! away votes on Col:
Overton, who stands no chance of an
election, and whose nomination is the
cause of all the trouble. It is the duty
of all Republicans to stand squarelytup
for the people's choiee and cast their
vote for C. C. Jadwin.
It is preposterous for Col. Overton
and his friends at this late day to be
making insincere professions of his
willingness to withdraw in case Mr.
Jadwin will. It is an acknowledge
ment of Col. ,Overton's .weakness as
well -as of Mr. Jadwin's strength.
After securing a nomination which in
no wise belonged toltim, and which by
precedents and of right belonged to
Wayne County and to Mrf Jadwin
who is the unquestioned choice of the
district, he, (Overton,) Professes a
willingneis to withdraw from a field
he has usurped, provided he , and his
friends'are allowed to Mime e
date, and that he be a Wyoming
or a Susquelumne County man. :He
has all at once been struck with won
drous mniosity for those counties.
He had none of this while Wayne'
county was standing by him. . He
hopes to get votes' in Wyoming and
Susquehanna by such an insincere
offer. The guise is too thin' and will
deceive nobody,. Would you be will
ing colonel,i".to withdraw and let
Wayne County name - the min?
Wayne County has named ,the man.
What-more Col. Overton do you want
Wayne county or Mr, Jad win to do
for you to entitle them to y our support ?
But, there will be no withdraWing,
uuless; Col. Qverton shall make
upjiis mind to redeem himself in the
estimation of thousands who would
under all proper circumstances be his
friends, and leave the field to-Mr:lad.
Ain who is the people's choiCe.
Reasons for Supporting Mr. Jadwin.
He has obtained at his own expense
and sent to every part of , j his district
ten times the number of public docu
ments which , have been furnished him
for distribution at public expense.
He has answered every letter: sent
to him, and attended promptly to
every request; standing in the front
rank as a working friend - cf the soldiers,
and securing for his .sadier constitu-,
uents more thtin twice the , number of
pensions obtained, throngh ',any other
member of Congress.
He has served the people of his dis
trict withbut any distinction between
Republican and I Democrat, high and
low, or rich and poor; recognizing- all
as his constituents, and , alike entitled
to his services;' and laboring for a the
poorest crippled veteran,,or the help-,
less soldier's widow, as promptly and
energeticaly as for the most influential
Members of his constituency.
Having served foi. one 'term faith
fully and acceptably, he is entitled to a
second term, by the established usage
of all parties , ; and until within a short
time' previous to the County •Conven
. tions, no one in the;distriet was men
tioned as a candidate against him,
while the people ,of I all four counties
were overwhelmingly in his favor.
Bradford has had the nomination
three times out of four, and is not • en
titled to it four times out of five; nei-,
ther have the Republicans of Bradford
asked for it at the :'resent time., Col.
Oveiton has hadthe - tominatio'n twice,
s not entitled to three terms to
Mr. Jad win's one; nor have the Re
publicans of Bradford asked it for him.
On the contrary, a large majority of
them, Imd of the Bradford Republican
Convention, were:in favor of giving
Mr. 4adwift the second'term to - which
he wss juStly entitled:laid understood
that he w,as to be the nominee, of. the
--Mr. Jadwin has opposed • bossism
wherever he could strike it most effec
tively. His constituents have- never
thought it necessary to instruct him
when he has represented them in Con
ventiOns or elsewhere. but have uni
formly\trustedi hhn to, exercise , his own
judgment as to the Course to be pur
sued, and have as uitiformlys. approved
and endorsed his course.. At Chicago
he aided in defeating the bosses. His
(iwn defeat in the recent. Conference, in
opposition to the manifest will of the
people, was the result of boss hostility,
boss methods, and boss dictation. He
was defeated bra._Combination of ma
chine leaders, who have long been do-
ing the work of the bosses. His de.
feat is an outrage on the' sentiment of
the district, and the nomination of
Col. Overton is repudiated by a large
majority of the Republicans of the
The following extracts from a letter

striking light on the situation' 'at that

would have no opposition to speak of.

We ask again, how it happens, after
such a statement to Mr. Jadwin, that
Col. Overton becomes the o nly Jaand -
date in Bradford against him, and then
bargains with Searle for his: own nomi
nation ? The only answer is, James
H. Webb and P. D. Morrow told him
to do it. Rep:ablierma of Bradford,
and of the district, you owe it to your
manhood to rebuke such duplicity' by
giving an overwhelming vote for Mr.
Jadwin at the polls. Nobody will pre
tend that Col. Overton's election is
among the possibilities.
In a -letter Written by Col. Overton
to Mr. .11dwin, April 27, 1886, 'while
in Congress,in::explanationof his action
in going to the President and aiding
Senators Wallace and Cameron, to pro
.. 'appointment of a Democrat to'
an important office, Col. Overton says:
"In brief my reasons are these, for do
ing as . 1 did. Wallace has done me a
number of favors, he is a better man to_
tie to than Randall, stands by his friends
better. Cameron was getting cross,

To the Editor Bradford Republican:—
We have read the statements of Hon. C.

respect to 'Col. Overton's promises, inten
tions and purposes in miring Bradford
county to name him 'for Congresa. We

The truth •of the .
.matter is, that Colonel
Overton has "wired in and wired out,", and
made so many 'short tin= tArreach the diff
honorable position in which he has placed
himself, that he very little idea what
he did say in his efforts to delude those
opposed to his nominition. • ,

_We do not propose to take

Jadwin's claims be recognized:
It has been usual to give the
office two terms. Mr. Jadwin is
an honest, industrious, 'efficient

CARD FROM OR. ELSBREE.
'Editor 'of tie Republican:—
Referring to Cot Overton's statement, in
which he sari: "Both Mr.-Jadwin and Mr
Holconib knew before Mr. Jadwin left To-.
Wanda at the. time .of his interview with
me, that it was not proposed that Mr.- Els
bree should be a conferee, but on the con
trary that it was determined that he should
not be. Mr. Elsbree was much offended
and Mr. Jadwin tried to pacify him." This
is true, but4,does not deny the main fact,
viz., that prior to and until after the ar
rangement ! between Mr. Overton and Mr.
Jadwin made in my presence, Mr. Overton
did not inform myself or Mr. Holcomb or
any other person,,,so far as I am awe* of
his intention not' to make -me a conferee.
But after the arrangement, at the instance
of James H. Webb, who objected to me and
who his been the ' nstigator of Mr. Overton's
perfidy to his pledgefs, he changed his mind,
and so informed myself and Mr, JedWirk
and perhaps Mr. Holcomb. I was indig
nant that Mr.:Overton 'should, after the
fall understanding was made, be dictated
to make the change at the instance of a
man who failed at the election in Novem
herlast to carry a majority of the Repnbli
votes of Bradford county, and who-has
been his adviser` for evil all the way eking
,tortuous pathway, and so expressed
Myself to Cot Overton. lim satisfied now .
that Col. Overton, , at the instance of Mr.
Webb, and two or three others who stood
in the background pushing him (Overton)
up to do an unjustifiable and indefensible
act, kept his real purpose concealed from
Mr.- Jadsvm and his friends, with a mental
reservation to achieve. by treachery and
deceit what he could not accomplish openly,
viz., his own nomination.
If Mr. Jadwin should now withdraw,
Post would beat Overton by sopa
votes. If Mr. Overton would now
withdraw, Jadwin would beat Post

few men would undertake, and no on e! u 1

If selfishness and ingratitude qualify a

• FrairiV EXPVIILICaIts:As 'chairman of
the late republican conventksi Cif - Soigne
lumna county, held at Montrose Sept. 11th,
1882, I deem it a duty . 1 - owe the party to
say to you that the nomination of Hon.
Edward Overton of Bradford - county for
Congress, effected at the conference-at
Tunkhannock is not acceptable to.the great
majority of the Republican voters of Sus
quehanna county, and they 'repudiate the
same and are determined to' support Hon.
C. C. Jadwin, the present member, at, the
ensuing election. They declare that Mr.
Jadwiti was not only the second bait in re
ality the first choice of the Republicans of
Susquehanna county, the nomination of Mr.
Searle at 'the convention being extended as
a compliment. sv
That Mr. Jadwia as ad
mittedly entitled to a_ second term in ac
cordance-with party usage ; and that it was
expressly understood by Mr: Searle to be
the wish of his constituents thai, under no
circumstances should his conferees vats for
Mr. Overton or for a candidate from Brad
ford county, and that he accepted the nom
ination with this understanding.
They th'erefore' regard the action of the
conferees as a gross misrepresentation of
their co Incas, as well as a . flagrant
outrage n Mr. Jadwin, ( one, of the 'most
meritorio members . of the present Con
gress, as !to record and efficiency), which
they cannot indorse. , It is obvious to me,
judging from the determination expressed
by Republicans in our county, (ascertained
by .a careful canvass) thit 'Mr. Jadwin will
receive over three-fourths of the republican
vote of the` county, and that every day
givhs him additional strength:
therefore consider it the duty 'of every
Republican voter in the district desirous of
Republican success, to unite in support of
Mr. Jadwin, as it is evident that every vote
. cast for Col. Overton is lost to the Republi
mn party, and can only, inure to the bene
fit of the Democratic candidate.
• . 0. D. FALICENBURT,
Chairman of Republican county convention
of Susquehanna county, Pa.
Pa., Oct. 28, 1882.
To the Republicans of the Fifteenth Congr4s-
The Republican' of *ape county, in
open convention, lump repudiated the nom
ination of Col. Overton for Congress, and
have placed the Hon. C. C Jadwin in nom
ination as the people's canaiditte.
The sentiment of the party, throughout
the, county, is substantially unanimous in
sustaining this action of the, Convention,
and the Republican vote will bo practicilly
solid for Mr. Jadwin. He will also receive
a large democratic vote.
Since ?ft. Jadwin's nomination, I have
been in g j ommunicatioe..with the principal
points in \the other counties of the district,
and i lliaye ,easo made a careful personal ean
vaintherc4n., I have found the prevailing
'sentiment among representative republicans'
in those counties strongly in favor of Mr.
Jadwin. I found, further, that it , luid been
general' expectation twat he would re
ceive the' nomination of the conference )
coupled with the opinion' that he was fairly
entitled tint! The indications appear con
clusiv that he will be supported by a large
majority of the Republicans, and will also
receive considerable suppOrt from Dente
crate: The Democratic soldier vote, par
ticularly, will be mainly in his favor.
In view, therefore, of the justice of Mr,
Jadwits ,claita to renomination, and . the
pre orating sentiment in; his favor
throughout the district, I feel it my duty to
urge upon the Republicans of the district
the importance of supporting him, as the
only means 'of securing the election of a
republican i congressinan. In my view;
*very. vote cast s for Col. Overton is practi-
Odly lost to the party. M. L. TRACY,

A CARO FROM MR. LANCASTER
SOUrff STEIIIING, Wayne Co., Pa.
November Ist, 1882.
To the Republicans of the Fifteenth Congres
sional Distket of Pennsyleaßia
A 'private letter written by me to Col.
Overton, in relation to the :013gressional
campaign in Wayne county, having been
published in the, Bradford Reporter of Oct.
26th,"1882, and said, letter not having been
written with a view to publicatien, I deem
it proper to follow it by a brief statement
on the subject. The letter referred to was
written after a hasty view of the situation,
and upon information as to the sentiment
'of the party which I have since found to
haie been wholly erroneous and Misleading.
The view Stated in that letter was based on
my desire that -the district 'should not be
lost to the republican party, and was writ.;
ten in good faith as the situation then pre
sented -itself to me ; but. a /careful and
thorough. canvass, since made in this and
other portions of the county, has satisfied
me that any feeling which may have -exist
ed in favor of ; Col. Overton on the ground
of regularity of nomination, at the time the
letter was writt,en, has since disappeared.
The reptiblic l uins, of Wayne are now con
sOcui that Mr. Jadwin is the strongest
Man in the .field; and Colonel Overton the
weakest; that the contest is really bet Ween
Mr. Jadwin And Mr. Post ; that the only
hope of saving the district tathe republican
party lies in supporting Mr. Jadwin ; and
that every vote for Col. Overton is practi
cally thrown away. For these reasons as
well as front Mr. Jadwin's just claims to a
second election, the republicans of this
county have become Substantially unani
mous in his support. Under the cbentn
stances, therefore, I feelL it' My duty to the
party to withdraw the statement contained
in my leiter to Cof. Overton, as having
been made on insufficient grounds, and not

cdunty,,dn learnini the result of
the Congressional Conference of

,The nomination tendered me
by that Convention has been fol
loFed ,by declara tions, on_ the
Part of representative Republi=
cans In the other counties of-the
district, of such a character, and
in such measure, as to show be
y ti that the action of the
confArence was 'in opposition to
then popular will,
,and that; the
,great mass of , Republicans in
'those counties are in full accord
with their brethren of - fin
matter, and corldially indo*
my candidacy. .

nomination of Col. 'Overton, and
to tender ,me the nomination,
have already beei! set forth in
the resolutions w . iCh it adopted,
and T need not here repeat or dis

that they are iicceptecl by the
great body. of R4ublicans, as
fully justifying .the ! 'action of the
Convention; and that that action
is emphatically seconded by the
masses of the Tirty through Out
the district. ,
I accordingly accept the nomi
nation, as manifestly expressing
the first choice of the people, and
as tendered .me in the cause of
popular rule. I make my appeal
to the people, regardless - of the
bosses and their henchmen, and
submit myself to their decision:
The record I haVe made as a Re
publican, in maintaining the will
of the people, against boss rule,
and; as a, representative of the
people, in support of measures ,
,the public inteiept,
against extravagance and job

We re-publish the following state
ment mtule'to the reconvened Republi
can county convention of Wayne
county at Honesdale on Wednesday
evening, Oet.-11, in response to a res
olution of the county executive corn-
Mittee. "Else here in these columns
we state what Col.:Overton said to us.
These , statements of Col. Overton's
promisewill be corroborated by fifty
or more of' the most yeliable , men in
Bradford , county, showing that his
nomination was procured', by con
cealment of his real motive.. The
republicans of Bradford county feel, as
they ought to' feel, that they ate dis
honored the action of Col. Overton
in taking a nomination by stealth that
did not honestly belong to Bradford
county, and which he could not have
procured in an open and fair contest.
Read Mr. Jadwin's statement as fol

it was given to me. Oa 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 conceited attempt on the part of Satinet,-

me. I now feel it my duty to' return the'

On ZII/Mith;g Cot Overton, I romenneed

said that he had not - decided to be a can
didate, and should have no pomade 'object
in becoming one except to preserve his
prestige at home. If he ran; it wetdd be
for this purpose only, and not with a _view
to,prevent niy 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 therefore,
said he, I must prevent this by controling
it myself. Then again, said ,he I. must
keep myself in li ne, and keep other's opt of
line, for the nomination, when it, again
comes to Bradford, some eight or ten years
hence, for I may then feel like re-entering
political life. This conversation took placo I
Saturday morning August 19. It was then
agreed between us that-we shopld meet on
the following Tuesday evening, and that he
should then decide whether he . would be a
e.andidate. Something, however, precipi
tated his decision, for on Monday afternoon
he announced himself publicly as a ouidi--
date. On Tuesday afternoon we.met, and
he informed me of his purpose. He did
this in peculiarly apologetic terms, He
said - that he never felt meaner in his life
than at that Moment, in eonsequetme of
his =Omit, that be was :about doing the
most ungrateful and dishonorable!. act ) of
his life; that his conclusion loci whply de; , -
'rived him of his sleep the previous nigh,.
at that he could not enter into any ex
planation further than to "say that' he was
invoked iwsomplicaticms as to promisq to
other parties, and must-run .
Having heard his statement, I esponded
that there was nothing for me, in this
situation; and after sonic, furtbek' observa
tions in the same vein, I said thatNhaving
Come into thwconnty I could embrace the
opportunity of visiting some of my friends
in different localities. Duiing 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 pnrpose of maintaining
his prestige, and that all his conferees
shoukt be for me as their second choice, and
he desired me to arrest 4 the growing boom
in my favor as the candidate of the county,
by assuring my friends•that we had reached
An understanding satisfactory to myself,
and that he would guard my interest* in
I therefore parted froin Col. Overton with
this assurance, and with the conviction that
my, canvass required
. 110 further attention
in Bradford county. On,ray 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 declar
ed my fill! confidence ,in Col. Overton's
good faith—also authorizing the publication
of my views on this point in the Honesdale
Citizew , --ind did all in'my, power to re-assure
the - Republicans of Wayne county ',in this
matter. , i
Between the date of my return and the
meeting of the conference, however, I
learned that Col. Overton was inventing
excuses, ' and grasping at every pretext,
however . trivial, for taking an attitude of
hostility to me; and that he assumed to hold
me responsible for every view that found
expression in any form, adverse-10 his can
didacy. • !,
' Nevertheless I went to Tinikhanficteck ex
pecting in be,nominated at the first session
of the conference. But it soon became
apparent that my confidenee in CoLOverton
was misplaced. His conferee's were mani
festly 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 giive
the word releasing them from their oblige:.
tion to him. - None of them had been given
to understand by CoL Overton that he was
not an earnest contestant for the nomirka-.
Lion, and there was nothing - to indicate
that the "prestige" theory had ever been
presented to them as the fciundation of his
1 candidacy. -
On Friday Col. Overton assured me that
he would that morning give the word for
k his 'conferees to vote for me. But it was
not given. At a later hOur• he inquired
when the afternoon trains left, and propos
'ad that my nomination should be made so
1 that we could leave immediately afterward.
Before the afternoon session, however, it
became manifest that the Susquehanna
' Conferees had in some unexplained manner
been wo over to Bradford. I was the
more rised at this, as I had -
received. numero :letters from, prominent Republi
cans in Susquehanna assuring me that
under no circumstances could Mr. Searle
carry his conferees over to Bradford. Col.
Overton's, conferees asked me what I .re
garded as their duty in View of this purPoose
on the pit of Susquehanna. I told them
tii - e`understandin g that they were to stand
by him until he withdrew, it would be in
famous for them to desert him. At the
afternoon session Col. Overton was accord
