SEVERAL Philadelphia papers which
contributed to the election of Co!. A. K.
McClure, having called him to account
for his opposition to Gen. Grant, after
announcing himself., as a Republican
during his canvass, that gentleman has
seen' tit to justify himself in a long
letter to the Philadelphia Bulletin.
He admits his promise made previously
to the election " to obey the' , -urelT:known
sentiments of the Republicans of OM
district on the Presidency," and his
supplemental assurance that no folly of
any one could make him faithless to it. He
pallihtes his neW departure °nth° groinul
that President Grant was the head
and front of the hostility to this election.
Whether or rot this were the case, we
do not pretend to determine at this dis
tance, nor do we care to raise the
question how far the administration
would be justified in using:the party
influence to defeat a candidate who
opposed the regular nomination, who
announced himself as hostile to the Presi
dent, an who at the same time didn't
ecru o tirasrlho - Repiiblican voters ' 'to
support him on the ground that he was
a Republican in whom. there was no
guile. Wo have an interest, however,
in a part of Col. McClure:,s letter, which
We here copy. Referring to his contest,
he says :
" While a few of us were laboring day
and night, after the election,. to prepare
the ovidenbe of fraud in form for the con
sideration of the -Senate, the command
came from the President that there must
be no investigation, and there was not a'
plunderer about the State Rouse dens
who did not Plume himself because the
edict of power had gene mrt'h to eoetain
the fraudulent return awarded against
the people. The Republican Senators
' rushed into caucus, under the lash of the
' administration, and personally impor
tuned and driven by officials direct from
the throne, to devise how not to allow in
quiry into what they know to be deliber
ate fraud upon the better citizens of
Philadelphia. A few Republican Sena
tors meant to do right, but thy were un
willing to incur the wrath of power until
there was no hope of investigatidn by
II obedient° to caucus. For' two weeks the
appliances of the administration were
successful, and only when three bravo
men declared, with the Democrats, that
they would at once vote tmselect a com
mittee, under the constitutional powers
of the:Senate, without regard to Iftw;
wasan act allowed to pass authorizing a
committee. But for the manly action of
Messrs. Col. Davis, Strang and Billing
felt, the repeating, ballot stuffing,
false counting, poutiry and rioting of
the Fourth district, would have been
strengthened let fresh triumphs over
people of Philadelphia, by the positive
protection given them by the President
of the United States.. The patietin ap
preciated the state of the case, pending
the struggle with favor at Harrisburg,-
when it gave the bold and able leader,
notifying the Prokident that " Hands
• Off" was • a neeeseity if he woeld pre'
serve the confidence of tho Republicans
of this city. I beg you to re-peruse that
' faithful admonition." •
Col. McClure is a member of the State
•Onato. lle' is the peer of the other
gentlemen who compose that body, as
far as Senatorial rights and fair•dcaling
is, concerned, and ho is no more, It
may accord with his ideas of justice and
• courtesy toward the sixteen who sit with
• him on the Republican side or the
Chamber, , to speak of their action after
the fashion of an irresponsible news
paper reporter, but oven after the read
ing of this extraordinary statement over -
—ads own signature, we doubt whether any .
of-his associates could even be provoked
into doing him any similar injustice.'

The writer ,of this article hi 'yeasona-,
lily well informed on tilt, doings of
the Republicans in the Senate, and
' ofr his own persoutil knowledge proposes
to traverse the assertions of the Senator
from the Fourth district. With the ox-
copßon of the gentleman who hold the
• certille - ritifi of election from the Nurth
district,.no Senator oil the 'Republican , I
side ever entertained fora moment the
idea that investigation could or should
be denied. It was never spoken
of in caucus, nor wore theo'n any
appliances whatever Stu the admin.,
• nitration, or. .elsewhere,' brought
to bear to bring about such' a' result.
When the petition of the contestant was
, presented, an examination of the act of
1839 showed that by plain and positive

question to the committee of the Gen
eral Judicia4, as to th&oonstruction of
' the act, That committcolroported that
the provisions of the act of 1889 forbade
a contest being entertained and at the
- same time submitted a hilt providing a

' committee in a manner that commended

The Senator from' Lancaster immedi
ately prepared ampler bill, which • pro.
vided for the selection of a committee
by the limited vote,.Mid the lot—com
bined. This the opposed by the con
testant, who" wished,. however, to make
arrangement by whicltlhe_'same.result
could ho reached surreptitiously by
means of drawing, under the act 0f1.830.
Both the bill 'reported by the committee,
'and 'the Billiugfelt bill WOW ' voted
for by all the hepublscan Senators and;
opposed by the contestant and it was
not until it was found that the Republi
cans were immovable in their opposition
to the drawing of - a committee iu any
way which would riot insure the greatest
fafiness possibk; to each claimant for
scat that the'contestant hiMself agreed
to use his h T illitoiree to have the Billingfelt
bill made to apply to his special case.
This is sum e history of the con
test as it tools ace. _Those wlio know
of it onlyAon fro comments of partizan .
papers, or of those who were deluding
themselves with' the notion that
they wore following some magnifi
cent reform may have Some
interest in \knowing that even
at 11arrislitirg men occasionally het un.
der'the guide .of judgment and con
science, at the risk of present cen
sure. No committee could have been
d'r'awn under the act 'of 1830, without
Jistegardiug, the plain words of the sta
tute. The Republicans determined they
would disregard no law. They pro
posed a remedy at once. lts form
was 'objected to. They removed
these objections, and presented another
bill, to which even partisan ingenuity
could urge no objection. When
it was known that they would not
yield this entirely fair and equitable ,
selection of a committee, either
on the howlings of, newspaper
or the entreaties of the contestant, the
plan proposed by the Republicans was
adopted on the motion of a Democrat,
and with the concurrence of every mem
' her of the Senate.' This the contestant
could have had at any time after the
r presentation of his petition ; ho could
have had nothing else had he re
sisted until the end of his term. What
ever of delay there was iu the draw-
ing of a committee 'is duo t 6 the'
Senator from theFeurth District and
those who acted with him. The charge
that the national administration delayed
his admission, or that the Republican
' Senators were constrained by caucus to
refuse a contest, does author no credit.

Lately the Democratic papers have
made themselves jelly over the apparent
divisions in the ranks of the Republi
cans. The) , assume that the people'
will believe that their ranks contain
no discordant chin:lents, if they keep
up a constant howl over our
divisions. But they are approachyig a
crisis in which they will meet •more
Oftenhie& than have yet befallen us.
At no time in history had the Democ
racy more to fear from the action of
as own conveyfoas -- thim_At7present.
Last year the progressives/ (that is
'rather a paradox when ap lied to Demo
crats), handled the is • and invented
the new departurt c, he , • bi 4 was that
their campaign • . hindered by
dissensions, and thar,tl ey were over
whelmingly defeated. Now the • ques
tion which is arising to trouble them,
is: - whether, they shall maintain their
own organization, or whether they
shall make theit• party play tail for the
reformers' kite. The latter is the policy
of the gentlemen Who`de the brain work
or the party, but It aitict salt the chaps
who hew the wood and draw the water.
They must have . pure Democracy or
nothing. As ant•exponent of the views
of this element of thoparty, the Belle
fonte Bratelonan thus breaks ground :
"We are sapiently told by self-consti
tuted oracles, that the slate is made—
and that it cannot be broken. The fiat
has gone forth that at least the bead of
the ticket made at Columbus must be
accepted by the discontented Republi
cans at Cincinnati, and by the Democ
racy in Convention assembled, and that
Judge David Davis must by the standard
bearer in opposition to Grant in the ttim•
pending crisis." They tell us that the
nomination of Joel Parker for Vice
President, is not so unalterable but that
it may be Changed. Sonic other man
may be nominated at' Cincinnati, and
that may again be changed by the Demo
cratic Convention. It is intimated that
Curtin, "our Andy," may lie substituted
for Parker, :Ind that he is now on his
Way honie • from the Imperial Court,
where lie has, been living in lordly splem
dor•for three years ' for the purpose of
aiding Greeley aunt others to lead the
-ranks of -the so-called Liberal Republi
cans and Reformers.
." Whatever leadms National, State. and
Local may do, we claim to have suf
licielit acquaintance with the honest
masses of the .Demoeratic party to say
that they are not quite befuddled
enough to swallow any such bait. Thu
Radical thieves who ate in, suit.them nv
well'ins the Radical thieves that are out.
Why not 'better? There is some hope
that those who are at the crib will be
come glutted, but if Wu.drivo them away
and' make room for the hungry horde
now growling outside, they will devour
all that is left. • .

SOME alarm has been given to the
. I.lepublicans.of.the.Stp.te, by the appear
anee of the name of William R. Arm
strong, to the call of the ""roforreers"
for the Cincinnati' Convention. The
impression was made at once that this
was nom William H. Armstrong, Of
Williamsport, lately a member of Con-.
gross from that diatrict, and one of the
ablest men in the State.. Mr. Armstrong
is °Win a letter e ,in which ho denies
havieg,slgned the call, and speaks of the
movement in its right terms. We Inote .
the following from his letter .
"To, prevent all mistakes, so far as

no 'sympathy whatever iu tho movement,

• Ws confess to vonOdoniblfiannoyanee
at the course pursued 43y Some Of our
Ropubljean..'exclianges. 'They, Have
hoisted the entire - ticket nominated; by
the late .State Convention,, but at the
seine time have &non : need withvehe
mence certain of the candidate
. We
entirely fail to appreciate the' wi domof
this course.. The only valid reason fOr
supporting a nomination, is that the per
son named is qualified. for the discharge
of the duties of the office for which he is
named, and that is the only reason which
the people will enderse..... Wo believethat
all the candidates nominated at, Harris
burg aro well qualified for their positions.
We aro sure timir electioq will redelind .
to the benefit and lionor'of the Common
wealth, and fur these reasons we pro
pose to ask all,gobd citizens to support
them. ..
We have iecollection of any State
tielccit since the 'Republican party came
into existence which was compo sed, of
gentlemen, who at the" time of their
nomination had received -so many evi
dences of the favor and codfidenco of
their fellow-citizens as the present-ticket.
Gen. Hartrauft - has been twice •befofe
the people for a most reeponsible Stale
office. lie has been twice triumphantly
elected,' and his administration of 74b
public) album received the almost unani
mous endorsement of the Legislature
in the vote which continued him in
office_ until his successor should lie
elected. Before ho becomes Governor
ho will have had almost soveli years of
continuous ' service in - the , most import
ant bureau of the Executive branch of
the Government. Neither of his Imme
diate predecessors began their terms
with as - much training. Gov. Curtin
served ,but- a term as Secretary of
State, and was without other public ex
perience, and yet we asked the people
to support bins as Sully qualified for
the position. No man in the Common
wealth ever regretted the choice of
Andrew G. Curtin. Governor Geary,
without any previous official connection
with the public affairs of the State, was
t. en on the strength of his personal
character and brilliant war record, and
we have had an administration of six
years under him Whielrhas been marked
by wisdom, care and fidelity to' the
best interests of- the Commonwealth.
In what respect had, either of these
gentlemen the advantage over General
Haar:left when placed first before the
people? They were both gentlemen of
iii k
._ ckata ter ; so is Gen. Eartrauft.
They wer iiehoice of the convention
of their pa ty , it is not pretended that
Hartrault is not fairly nominated. They
had not been twice honored by being
the choice of this great State for one of
its most important aides. GEC. HART-
ItAl;i , T has heed thus honored. In the
face of all this, it is a little absurd
to say that he is not as fairly
entitled to an unqualified support any man_who noir over— re
ceivcd his first nomination frOm our'
party., That he was not the first choice
of every Rekublican its .the State has
nothing to do With his merits. Ile was
not ours certainly, but wo feel that we
should stultify ourselves if -we failed to
admit that he is fully qualified in all re
spects for his great office, or that he had
not - in a very marked degree received
substantial endorsements from the
whole people as to his worth and ability.
The same is true to a largo extent of
the whole ticket. Judgerercur's ability,
and , the wisdom of his nomination 'is
&needed by all. (ion Allen has, ror five
years, represented an important and in
telligent constituency in the State Legis
lature, and received his nomination for
his present position just as he left his
place in the Senate. It would ho ab
oard to say that this continued confi
dence in the mall arose from anythidg
else than an appreciation of his, merit.
