REPUBLICAN STATE CONVENTION,
THE RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED.
HON. n. W. WILLIAMS FOR SUPREME
The Republican State Convention
met at Williamsport on Wednesday last
at 12 M. The Convention was called to

At the ninth ballot Williams 0! Alle

nation was made unanimous.
Col. Frank Jordan was continued as

Ihe Convention worked in nerfeot
harmony and although the contest for

the Judgeship was. animated, no bitter
feeluio was nianitested.
The following is ihe platform adopted
by the Republican State Convention of
Pennsylvania.in se-sion in Williamsport,
ou Wednesday :
''The Repu licanst f Pennsylvania, np.

First That in the name ot a nation

Second. That, as in the past wo cor
dially justified the administration cd'
Abraham Lincoln in all necessary nets
tor suppressing the rebellion, we record
it as cur judgment that the administra
tion ot Andiew Johnson has been chief. I
ly f'aitlilt'.s because it has failed to try to
gather up and fix in the organic statute
law the great principles which the war
ha settled, and without whose adoption
as a rulu of action, peace is but a delu
sion und a snare.
"Third. That in completion of the
task ot reconstruction so finnlj as to be
perpetual, it is indispensable that traitors
beuleu in the field shall not find n sane,
ttiaty in the courts , that the law shall
not be tortured to justify or palliate the
crimes of which our country's enemie's
have been guilty taiid that the law of
war shall be so distinctly declared by
the courts that no disturbing and para,
lyzing doubts may tver be raised, as in
18G1, respecting the essential rights ol
the Government, or personal dtuics of
"Fourth That this Convention.Bpeak

Cabinet, to evade those laws, by inter

were eimcti d ; and (hat we call upon
Congress soon to meet, to promptly and

were required for public defense, nor in
any way thwart the measures which were
essential to tho pnhho protection, but
that, on ths other hand, it may become

that "I fully concurred with the statement

Shortly after this there appeared in llio Re

In before tho publ.c.
Tho fiist part of this letter, as Mr. Mont
gomery snys, was drawn up by linnsM!. It
was written on a half sheet of toolsctip paper
ana occup.cu tne wnoio 01 tne nrst page, unci
about two or three Hues nt tho top of ttio sec
ond. I wave all question ns to the modesty
or good taste ho exhibited in drawing 11,1 a let
ter addressed lo himself as WW William
Montgomery since in view of his recent con
duct he hud good reason to couchidn that un
less ho guvo his own name that prefix no ono
else would ever think of doing it for lilin and
J hero take occasion to say that t withhold my
signature, not on that account, but solely be
cause I could not subscribe to tho statomants
contained in the body of the letter itself.
Though Mr. Montgomery has published the
letter with my nanio appended b it, I here
assert most solemnly, and am willing to take
my oath that never titnedtlutt mrt of Hi This
much in regard to th it portion of tho letter
written by Mr. Montomcry, which, as I havo
already stated, occupied the whole of tho first
page ol the paper, an 1 about two or throe lines
nn the second. JNow lor the second part. To
get lid of tho Importunity of his son w ho
seemeu uetermineii to navo my name 111 some
shape, I took the pencil and beginning on tho
second page nt least seven or eight Hues below
where Mr. Montgomery had loft off writing,
wrote to him as near as I can rccnllut as fol
lows t "Mr. Montgomery 1 You have sent me
s paper for mo to etidorso.I cannot endorso it.
Tho window was broken." This I am posi
tive Is the sttbstanco of all I wrote, and so far
as I can recollect, tho above are tho very words
I made use of. Certain Ism that all I wroto
did not occupy three lines on tho paper I
signed ray name to It and handed the paper
to A. J. Montgomery who remarked to Miller
with an oath, that it was about time they were
leaving, and thcroupon they took their depar
ture. These are the simple fuels In rvguid to
the paper. I never put my nmiiu to it except
lo one place, mid Unit was lnmiudiutcly at the

the letter 111 the lievirw and fixamimr wllli my
name appended to the part written by Mr.
Montgomery, and found lhat the two or three
lines I hud written were w holly stricken out
and tolally dill'erent matter placed over my
gcm.ine Bigiuituru. That I wrote tho second
part or the letter as published by Mr. Mont
domery. I utterly deny. I admit that my
sinnalure as It appears hi the second place on
the letter is genuine, but repeat Unit what I
wrote above it litis been erased and other
matter substituted. Oi this I havo satisfied
