In a letter published In tho Democrat
and .SifiT of the twelfth instniit, address.
ed to tho Democratic Standing Commit
tee, of Columbia County, asking isald
Committee to nominate Colonel Levi L.
Tutu, ns n eaiidldato for member of tho
Legislature, for tho District composed of
tho Counties of Columbia and Montour
in opposition to tho regular Democratic
candidate, Thomas Clialfant, who was
duly nominated by tho Conferees of said
counties in accordance witli tho usages
of tho party. It is alleged
First. That tho candidato for State
Senato had been conceded by Montour
County to Columbia County
Second. That Thomas Clialfant and
his Conferees, J. II. Campbell and John
M'Williams, and tho friends of Mr,
Chnlfant, who were present at tho meet
ing of tho Representative Conferees, had
pledged themselves to secure " beyond
all possibility of doubt," the nomina
tion of Ii. Ij. Tate as tlie Democratic can
didate for .State Senator.
Third. That this piedgo was given
in accordance witli tho spirit of
n certain resolution adopted by the Col
umbia County Convention, appointing
John Snyder nud Jt. C. Emit Itepresen
tativo Conferees of said counties.
fourth. That haid Conferees of Co
I lint bia County were induced by said
pledge to give the nomination to Mr,
Fifth. That neither Mr. Clialfutit nor
any person representing him or his in.
terats was present at tho Senatorial
Conference during the two days it was
Sixth. That In violation of conceded
claims of Columbia County, and through
gross misrepresentation and political
intrigue, the nomination for Senator has
been given to the sniiillcst county in tho
In reply to these charges tho under
signed say :
First. Tliat wo never conceded to Co
lumbia County the Senatorial Candidate
as a right that we then thought and still
think that tho claim of Montour Coun
ty was as strong, if not stronger than
that of Columbia, or any other county
in the District ; Montour County, one
of four counties composing the Senato
rial District, having been for fifteen
years without a Senatorial Candidate,
while Columbia County has had tho
Senator seven years out of that fjteen.
Ve next deny that either Mr. Clial
fant, his conferees or friends, during the
Representative conference, or beforo or
after, "pledged themselves to secure be
yond thu possibility of doubt, the nomi
nation of Hon. L. Li. Tate, for State
Such a piedgo on their part, in the face of
tho action of tho Montour County Con
vention, nominating William A. Deanfor
that olllco, and appointing Conferees to
iho all honorablo means to secure his
election, would hnvo been ridiculous,
because It was well known to tho Con
ferees of Montour ns well as those of
Columbia County, that tho Senatorial
nomination was then entirely in tho
hands of Senatorial Conferees, who
might or might not, ns they thought
proper, vote In the Senatorial Confer
ence, as Mr. Clialfant and his friends
desired. The only promiso given was
Unit tho pen-oils referred to, would, as
individuals use their influence with tho
Senatorial Conference of Montour, to
secure Colonel Tate's nomination, nnd
that they had no doubt that after sup
porting tho nomination of Mr. Dean
for a rensonablo time, in accordance
witli their Instructions paid conferees
would veto for the nomlneo of Colum
hln County. If this was a pledge, then
it was redeemed in both letter nnd spir
it, ns is sot forth hereafter.
Wo deny that the nomination oi
Thomas Clialfant was mtulo in accord
anco with tho lutter nnd spirit of tho
proviso contained In tho resolution ap
pointing Messrs. Emit and Snyder,
Jtcpre.sentatlvo Conferees. Said l'rovl
so was repudiated at the tlmo by tho
Conferees of Montour County, ns dicta
torial on tho part of Columbia County
Tho right of Montour County to tho
candidato for Representative t this
time, wns placed upon tho ncknowl
edged usauos of tho party, and tho
promises on tho part of Mr. Clialfant,
his Conferees and friends, to use their
influence to H'curo the Senatorial can
ifffi Irnm Derr. .tncksoni l-l.
dldatc to Columbia County, nfter lioil'
orablo cflbrts had been mado by tho
Senatorial Conferees of Montour County
to sccuro Mr. Dean's nomination, were
mndo.wlth n view to insuro peaco and
harmony in tho Democratic party, nnd
not nsn concession of right.
These promises wcro cnrrlcd out in
good faith. Mr. Chnlfant on his part
wns prevented from nttcndlng the Con
tention by sickness in his family, butns
wo nro assured, others wcro present nt
ins Instance nnd roiiuest. On tho ilrst
day of tho meeting Mr. Leidy and Mr.
M'Cormlck wcro present and used their
Influence to hnvo the Montour County
Conferees go for tho Cciumblu County
enndldnto as soon ns n honorable effort
had been made to necuro Mr. Dean's
nomination. Wo know that this was
tho wish of both gentlemen. On tho
second day of tho Conference- one of the
undersigned, J. II. Campbell nnd J. C.
iVmmernian were present nt Mr. Ciial
flint's instance nnd earnest roiiuest, for
tho purposoof inducing, if possible, our
Senntorlal Conferees, to vote for the
nomination of Colonel Tate, as soon ns
nn honorablo eirort had been mndo to
sccuro Mr. Dean's nomination. "Wodld
exert nil our Inlluenco with said Con
ferees to bring about this result. Thnt
we were unsuccessful, Is not our fault.
Our honest efforts was nil wo pledged,
all that Mr. Tate or his friends could
have relied upon, nnd these honest ef
forts we did put forth in good faith.
Mr. M'Williams. ono of tho Represen
tative Conferees, nlso, wo are Informed,
called upon Judgo Oaks, Senatorial
Conferee from Montour, nnd urged up
on him to vote for Colonel Tate's nomi
Wo present this statement to tho con
sideration of the voters of this Repre
sentative District, ns n denial und refu-
tntion of tho charges mado that tho
nomination of Mr. Clialfant was obtain
tallied by fraud and misrepresentation ;
and in vindication of ourselves, who
nre charged with violating or neglect
ing our pledges.
For tho Colonel or his friends to allege
that, we or any other persons present at
the Representative Conference pledged
ourselves "tosecure his, Tate's, nomina
tion beyond the possibility of doubt,"
as alleged by them, is simply to stultify
themselves, for they could not but
know, that neither one nor all tho per
sons so " pledging" could control the
action of the Senatorial Conferees. All
they could do wits to use their influence.
All Colonel Tate nnd his friends could re
ly upon was the promiso that that influ
ence should be exerted, which wo aver,
as hereinboforo stated, was exerted in
good faith. In conclusion we may bo
permitted to express our hope und be
lief that tho Democrnts of this district
will not at this important crisis stiller
themselves to bo distracted by tho pri
vate grief of nny individual or individ
uals, whose personal ambition or politi
cal aspirations have been thwarted by
tho nction of tho Conferees. Wo make
this statement to disabuse tho minds of
voters, who, by the false allegations con
tained in tho document published in tho
Democrat and Star, might bu induced to
believe that a wrong hud been dono to
Columbia County and al.so in vindication
of our action and tho action of other
citizens of Montour County. Wo feel
assured thnt no Democrat who is nc-
quainted with tho facts and circumstan
ces connected witli this nomination, will
for ono moment withhold his support
from Mr. Clialfant, tho regularly nomi
nated candidate, nor give tho least en
couragement, by word or net, to nny dis
organizing seheme,concocted for the pur
poseof gratifying personal feelings resul
ting from disappointed ambition, which
sehenio must, if carried out, prove dis
astrous to tho Democratic party, and
which, if countenanced, furnishes a pre
cedent for repudiating any nominations
that may hereafter bo made in accord
ance with the usages of our party.
Wo invoke the Democrats of this
Representative District, therefore, to
mako themselves fully acquainted with
these facts, and, having satisfied them
selves that Montour County was ontl-
tlnd to tho candidato for Representa
tive at this time, and that Mr. Clialfant
was resrularv nominated according to
the usages or tho party, glvo to Mr. C,
their undivided support, and thus se.
euro peneo and harmony, and also

which tho great iaiues of tho day woro
handled with his acctistemcd clearness,
