ftheiiarty. It Js iilleKed
'iV.ff. Thht the enndldate for Stnto
Seimte hnd been eoneeded by ilontotir
County to Columbia County.
Srroml. That Thomas Chalfant and
hi- Conferees, .1. II. Campbell and .John
M'Williams, and tho friends of Mr.
lmlfant, who wereprc-cnt at the meet-
liiff. of the Representative Conferees, had
pledged thein-elves to sceiire " beyond
till polblllty of doubt," tho noniiua
tion of L. L. TntenstlieDeinocratleean
dldate for State Senator.
Third. That this pledge was given
in lu'uimluiicu with the spirit of
certain resolution adopted by the Col
umbia County Convention, appointing
John Snyder nnd H. C. Fruit Ki'iire.'ien-
tatlve Conferees of said eounties.
J'ourlh. That saltl Conferees of Co
lumbia County were induced by slid
pledge to give the nomination to Mr.
Pijth. That neither Mr. Chalfant nor
any person representing him or his in
terests was present nt tho Senatorial
Conference during the two days it was
&Wh. That In violation of conceded
claims of Columbia County, and t hrotigh
gross misrepresentation and political
Intrigue, the nomination for Senator has
been given to the smallest county in the
In reply to theao charges the under
signed say :
f irst. That we never conceded to Co
lumbia County the Senatorial Candidate
as a riiht that wo then thnwiht-Mi&rtiU
think that the claim of Montour Coun
ty was as strong, if not stronger than
Unit of Columbia, or any other county
in the District ; Montour County, ono
if four counties composing the Senato
rial District, having been for ilfteen
years without a .Senatorial Candidate,
while Columbia County has had the
Senator snm years out of that Jijlcai.
Wo next deny that either Mr. Chal
fant, hisi'onfereesor friends, during the
HoprosentntiveconferouLC, or before or
after, "pledged themselves to secure be
yond the possibility of doubt, the nomi
nation of Hon. L. L. Tato, for State
Such a pledge on their part, In the face of
the action of the Montour County Con
vention, nominating William A. Dean for
that olllce, ami appointing Conferees to
uso nil honorable means to secure Ids
lection, would have been ridiculous,
because it was well known to the Con
ferees of Montour as well as tluwo of
Columbia County, that the Senatorial
nomination was then entirely in tho
hands of Senatorial Conferees, who
might or might not, as they thought
proper, vote in the Senatorial Confer
ence, as Mr. Challaiit and Ins mends
desired. The only promise given was
that the persons referred to, would, as
ntlividimls u-e their inlluenco with the
Senatorial Conference of Montour, to
secure Colonel Tate's nomination, and
that they had no doubt that after sup
porting tlio nomination of Mr. Dean
for a reasonable time, in accordance
witli their instructions said conferees
would vote for tho nominee of Colum
bia County. Jf this was a pledge, then
it was redeemed in both letter anil spir
it, as is set forth hereafter.
Wo deny that the nomination of
Thomas Chalfant was niado in accord
ance witli tho letter nnd spirit of the
proviso contained in the resolution ap
pointing Messrs. Fruit and Snyder,
Representative Conferees. Said Provi
so was repudiated at the time by thu
Conferees of Montour County, as dicta
torial on tho part of Columbia County.
Vlio right of Montour County to tho
candidate for Representative nt this
time, was placed upon tho acknowl
edged usages of the party, and tho
promises on tho part of Mr. Chalfant,
Ids Conferees and friends, to use their
inlluenco to secure tho Senatorial can
didate U) Columbia County, after hon
orable etforts had been made by w
Senatorial Conferees of Montour County
to secure Mr. Dean's nomination, wiro
made with n view to insure ponce and
harmony in tlie Democratic party, and
not as a concession of riijht.
These promises were carried out in
good faith. Mr. Chalfant on his part
was prevented from attending tho Con
tention by sickness In his family, but as
wo are assured, others wero pre-ent at
his instanco and retiue.-it
On tlio first
day of the meeting Mr. Leidy and Mr. ot the party.
M'Cormiek were present and u-ed their A statement of reasons for this elisor

tho wish of both gentlemen. On the
peeond tiny of tho Conference nio of tho
undersigned, J. H. Campbell and J. C.
Ainmerniiin wero present at Mr. dial
fant's Instance and earnest request, for
tho purposoof Inducing, If possible, our
Senatorial Conferees., to vote for tho
nomination of Colonel Tato. as s.oon as
an honorablo effort had been mado to
secure Mr. Dean's nomination. Wodld,or my fi'lonils to Do heard upon mo
exert all our influeino witu .-uiriLoa-. i.uvi.oa - involved.
forces to bring nbout this result. That
wo were unxuccessful, Is not our fault.
Our honest efforts Mas all wo pledged,
all thnt Mr. Tate or his friends could
have relied upon, and these honest ef
forts wo did put forth In good faith.
Mr. M'WIIIIaniH, ono of tho Represen
tative Conferees, nlso, we arc Informed,
called upon Judge Oaks, Senatorial
Conferee from Montour, and urged up
on him to vote for Colonel Tate's nomi
nation. We present this slntemenl to the con
sideration of tho voters of this Repre
sentative District, as a denial and refu
tation of the charges made that the
nonilnntlon of Mr. Chalfant was obtain
tallied by fraud nml misrepresentation ;
nnd in vindication of ourselves, who
me charged witli violating or neglect
ing our pledges.
For tho Colonel orhNfrieiiils (o 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 the per
son so " pledging" could control tlio
action of tlie Senatorial Conferees. All
they could tlo was to use their inlluence.
All Colonel Tntennd his friends could re
ly upon was the promise thnt that influ
ence should be exerted, which weaver,
as hereinbefore stated, was exerted in
good faith. In conclusion we maybe
permitted to express our hope and be
lief that the Democrats of this district
will not at this important crisis stiller
thcm-elves to he distracted by tlie pri
vate grief of any individual or individ
uals, whose personal ambition or politi
cal aspirations have been thwarted by
the action of the Conferees. We make
this statement to disabuse tlie minds of
voters, wiio, bv the false allegations con-.
tallied in the document published in tlie
Democrat and Star, might bo Induced to
believe tiiat a wrong had been done to
Columbia County and also in vindication
of our action and the action of other
citizens of Montour County. We feel
assured that no Democrat who is ac
quainted with the facts and circumstan
ces connected with this nomination, will
for one moment withhold his support
from Mr. Chalfant, the regularly nomi
nated candidate, not give tho least en
couragement, by word or act, to any dis
oi'ganizingschciiie,coiU'octed for thepur
poscof gratifying personal feelings resul
ting from disappointed ambition, which
scheme must, if carried out, prove dis
astrous to the Democratic flirty, and
which, if countenanced, furnishes a pre
cedent for repudiating any nominations
that may hereafter be made in accord
ance with tho usages of our party.
We invoke tho Democrats of this
Representative District, therefore, to
make themselves fully acquainted with
these facts, and, having satisfied them
selves that Montour County was ontl
tlnd to the candidate for Representa
tive at tills time, and that Mr. Chalfant
was rcgulary nominated according to
tlio usages of the party, give to Mr. C.
their undivided support, anil thus se
cure peace anil harmony, and also
assure the success of tlio whole ticket, a
matter worthy tiio efforts of every
Democrat, every friend of ids country,
every one who desires u restoration of

Judge F.lwcll is one of the few men
of distinction who have a vast number
of attached and ardent friends, and sel
dom, if ever, an open enemy. He is of
that rare class of men, prominent lu
public affairs, who unite a generous,
kindly, and unselfish nature witli steady
and profound intellectual strength. His
selection to represent this district was
entirely unsought, and illustrates solely
tho spontaneous sone of the people
not tlio management of wire-working
politicians. It is almost unnecessary,
therefore, to pa's any tribute upon his
traits and virtues, to bo disseminated
among Ills old friends nnd neighbors lu
this county so well by these is lie
known, mi thoroughly is his character
Judge F.lwcll, previous to his eleva
tion to the Reuch, maintained nt the
Rar of Rradford County mid thcndjoln
lug circuit it supremacy which never
disturbed the equanimity of his man
ners, or aggravated an immodest opin
ion of himself. His hand was always
ready to assist tlie younyer members of
the profession, and gave cheerfully aid
to some even of equal experience and
To his clients he never gave ndvico
which was insincere, or based purely
upon motives of personal gain. He
never took those, by whom he was em
ployed, through tlio expensive compli
cations of a doubtful law-sull, to got the
benefit of a larger fee, or made them the
victims' of ill-considered counsel.
Tlie choice which fell upon him for
judgeship of tlio Twenty-first District
was made, without solicitation, by a
Rar fully enlightened in regard to his
jiersonal character, his eminent fitness
for the place. Having attained, in his
chosen career of life, a position suited
in nil respects to his mutation and his
tastes, adorned by his purity nnd sus
tained by his ability and learning, he
has been put in nomination, ut tlio risk
of personal sacrifice, and with extreme
reluctance on Ids own part, for an olllce
ripe, patient, and most befitting culture,
it reputation uu-iillled by personal trick
ery, a heart unskilled in tho devious
dishonesty of political intrigue. Ho is
a man, thus, In every senso of the ca
pacity and character, to becomo nn hon
est and eminent servant of the people.
Tlio blameless record Mr. El well hits
maintained is beyond the slightest n-j
porsion of his political opponents', who
over tney may lie, wherever they may
lie found. Rut tho friendship of those
who profess with him sentiments in
common, must not passively permit his
I defeat. If these combine, his election
is beyond a doubt ; and tlio whole dis
trict, may bo redeemed from that relic
of Radical mis-rule, which, sustained
by narrow self-interest In this county,
Is dying by rapid decrees everywhere
elso in tlio country. Energy nnd or
ganization will insurocompleto success.
Tho lower counties will give to Mr. El-
well largely Increased majorities j a
nroner vigilance in Rradford alone, Is
necessnry to elect him.
Wo call upon tlio people who huvo
mado his nomination, 10 intiuo ins elec
tion sure, to organize at onco and see
that no votes nro lost. llradford Aryit.

Aro You for Principlo, or Against it ?
Foil five Htul twenty yenrs ormoro,
Colonel Tntn hrw constantly nnd persist
ently Indulged in tho cry, "Stick to
tho regularly nominated ticket." Now,
when lie has failed to get n nomination at
tlie handsof the Democracy, through Its
regular organization, he " bolt," nnd
belies nil that he has heretofore advoca
ted. When a innn asks office from tlio
Democracy and submits to tho decision
of tho party ns expressed through Its)
conventions, etc., he, ivs a munof honor,
Is bound to nbldo by that decision even
should It be against him. If this waci not
the rule, nny defeated candidate might
repudiate that decision nnd run as n
volunteer. Accordlngto Colonel Tate's
logic, any one of the defeated candi
dates In his county at the Into conven
lion lias a right to " bolt," provided ho
can secure the names of a few friends to
sign n statement that ho has been badly
treated, and then get a pliable, Irrespon
sible body, called a County Standing
Committee, to nominate him. It is new
In the history of the Democratic I'arty
for a county committee to usurp tho
functions of a county convention nnd
distriet conference, and despotically nnd
arrogantly set aside and rcpudlato a
nomination so'eninly made by these of
ficial bodies. Yet the Standing Com
mittee of Columbia County has done
this. They have set themselves up
as the rulers not only of Columbia
County, but of Montour, nlso. The
question then with Democrats is, arc the
nets of its conventions and conferences
binding'.' If they are, let us know it.
If not, why tho necessity of keeping up
party machinery if any defeated candi
date can break through it. The ques
tion to-day, Democrats, is not whether
Thomas Chalfant or Levi L. Tate shall
go to Harrisburg ; it is n question of
principle. Will you repudiate your
own nomination fairly made and destroy
your own organization, or will you sus
tain the acts of your own convention
nnd conference '.' With you nests tlio
decision. Danville Intelligencer.
To tho .Democratic Citizens of Co
Wi:, the undoi'sdgned, not wishing by
tlie use of our names to give " aid and
comfort" to the Radicals, nor to assist
in destroying tiie time-honored Demo
cratic organization, do withdraw our
names from the recommendation of Col.
L. L. Tate for Assembly. While sym
pathizing with him in his defeat, wo
cannot permit personal relations to in
fluence principles, and cannot sco with
what show of fairness lie attempts to
crowd off the regular nominee for Rep
resentative, simply because he himself
failed to receive a nomination to the
Senate. Somo of our names wero ob
tained by unfair representations, or upon
a misconception of tho facts, wliilo
others were used without due authority.

Mil. Editou, In a letter addressed
"to the Democratic Standing Commit
tee of Columbia County," published In
tho Democrat and Star September 12,
I Still, it is charged that I, with yourself
and friends, in attendance nt the Repriv
sentative Conferee Meeting, held nt
Rloomsburg, in order to secure your
nomination for Representative, did con-
codo to Columbia County tlio right to
tlie Senatorial candidate, that I, your
self and friends, had failed In our
pledges to secure tlio nomination of
Levi L. Tate, as tho cauditlnto for State
Senator, ami that we had failed in our
pledges to appear at tho Senatorial Con
ference. Now permit mo to say that I
never, at any time, conceded a-, a right
to Columbia County, tlio Senatorial
candidate I did promise tho Represent
ative Conferees to bo present at the
Senatorial Meeting and I was present,
nnd did ue my infiuonco in favor of
Columbia County others wero present
with mo it is simply lyinr to say 1
failed in my pledges. Moro nnon.

Vk, tho undersigned, hereby certify
that we, after giving thought to the
question its to who wo ought to support
for member to represent us from this
District, have no hesitation or reserve
In saying that Thomas Chalfant, of Mon
tour," being tho regular nominee, shall
have our hearty support j nnd wo fur
ther make uso of this occasion to say
that wo feel indignant to all those who
have made u-o of unfair means to get
our names to subserve their disorganiz
ing ends; and wo will opposo the
election of L. L.Tate, or any other man
who bolts, by all fair means wo ran
command. Wo nro under tho Impres
sion that our Standing Committee hnvo
no right to nominate n cnndldntc nnd to
endeavor to force him upon the pcopl
In opposition to a regularly nomlnuted
candidate; in short, wo look upon tht
schemo ns palpably against tho uftgM
of the party, and should meet with tho
unanimous rebuke of nil Democrats.
Ourcwd is," the wholo ticket."

" Yes-like blazes."

were greeted with tho following conver
