Governor Bradford's Reply to President
The Difficulty & tureen the. State and the
Military Authorities.
State op Maryland, T
Executive Dbpabtmsmt. V
Asnaiolib. November 3, lAt3y
IJi* HxceUency, Abraham Lincoln,
President of the United States:
Sir—Yours of the 2d instant, in reply
to mine of the 31st ult,, reached me to-day
after I had already read it in the Balti
more papers of this morning. Yeur Ex
e*!leacy has in this respect the advantage
of me, for though followiug your example,
1 shall send a duplicate of this to the
Press, the probabilities are, looking to re
cent events, that the military authorities
will not allow its publication.
VTheu I wrote to you on Saturday last,
I had not teen able to procare a copy of
the military order in reference to the
eh ctiun, and acted merely on the rumors
of its character. When fsaw it, as 1 did
for the first time on Sunday. I found it
evt-a more objectionable than rumor had
re} resented it; and when 1 was shown on
riw eatti* day a copy of your letter to Mr ;
Swann, in which you trust there is ( *no
ja>t ground for the suspicion” ho had ex
prrsscd. and declaring that you felt
“mortified that there couW be a doubt;
upon this point of your (his) inquiry,” j
which point was a suggestion by Mr.!
Swann, “that the election about to take ;
place will be attended with undue interior-'
enoc on the part of persons claiming to!
represent the wishes of the Government,” |
1 rested satisfied that I should receive from
you a proinpt countermand of the order in
It the sending out of one or mere regi
ments of soldiers, distributing them among
Several of the counties to attend their
f daces of election, in defisnde of the known
aw* ef the State prohibiting therr pre
setter; ordering military otfioers ami Pro
vost Marshals to arrest voters guilty, in
the opinion of *uch officers, of certain of-1
fences; and msrucing Judges of Elections!
with the jower of tho military arm in
ease this military order was not respected. '
is not an “undue interference” with th{
freedom of elections. I confess myself!
unable to imagine what it is. The pur-!
Cft of your Excellency’s remarks, hi your j
ter to me. is confined chi. Sy to a justi- 1
fication of the exclusion of disloyal voters i
Irom the pulls by meatnt of the admin istra- i
tion of an oath of allegiance. Without i
stopping to analyse the particular oath in
question, it may he sulfu ienl to .*y that j
this clause of the order is by far the least ;
objectionable of the three.
If any who were once citizens ef the
United States have been guilty of such
conduct as justly disfranchises them, let;
them take the consequences. I for one 1
have not interfered arid shall not interfere
to prevent it. But 1 insist that the Judges
whom the Citato has provided are the ex- 1
elusive judges of the question of such'
citizenship, and that they shall be allowed
to exercise their own judgment upon that
question, and i shall never c< ase to pro
test against any attempt of the military
power, in a loyal Mate, to control that
judgment—and especially against ill* use !
ot any threats tending‘to cm.-rco an obser
vance by these Judge* of any law which
such a power shall undertake *.o prescribe. ;
The first and third section of the • rdor 1
are the most remarkable items of ihe ar- J
bitmry authority it atnunies. The first |
places all persons sopposed to hare given '
“aid and comfort nr encouragement ' lui
persoiiH engaged i the rebellion, and
tnos* who “do not recognize their aiicgi- *
• ance to the United States,” at the mercy
ol a military ofuscr and Provost Marshal, |
and order* the latter to arrest them when
“approaching the polio. '* Ac., and the!
third clause iutuuaUe to the Judge* of
Election, in very unmistakable terms, the
dangers they incur in case they disobey
the military authority. These sworn n.fii
ccrs e>t the lam, have a new law prescribed '
to them in this military order, and fin* dis
obedlamee of which they are t. bo r ported ■
u “there headquarters,” and must ot I
course, tatc warning ot the com* quences I
that will ctuuu.

I am aware that year Excellency has so
far modified the finwt of said suctions as to
substitute fer it a direction to these’Pro
vost Marshals “to prevent all disturbance
or violence about tkc polls.&c ; and
that, in speaking of the terms of the origi
nal ord-r, you will admit that “the** of
ficers being of necessity tin exclusive
judges* sui to who shill be arrested, the ;
provision is liable to abuse;’* but I sub
mit. with deference, that this
dfi*atiH-^iy-setieTc he WtfeT*
of some of the moH immoderate of its j
powers. :r still leaves these officers the ex
clusive judges of who aro guilty cf violence
►or dint ur bunco, and, of course, of wh* are 1
liable to arrest therefor, and leaves them,
consequently, the same opportunity tor a
similar abuse of power, the probability of
which you may the more readily estimate
when 1 inform you that several of them
are th uiselves candidates at die same
election fur some of our most i moor taut
* 0m *
t Sees.
You refer several times in ycur letter
to the Missouri case, ami to my approval
of year course therein, and seem to think
that tlie two Status are in the same con
dition, and have been ffvaied in like man
ner. Without pausing to compare their
conditions, or their respective liability to
violence at the pails, I propose to cdutrast
the proceedings which have severally ta
ken phn ein the two. You s*y, “My or
der in Missouri, which you approve, and
General Schchck’s oidcr here, reach pre
cisely the same end.”. The only scion o.’
yours in rvfercuo* to the Missouri case, of
which I have expressed approval, or ot
which I hare any knowledge, fe. u* nreh
tiußCtl in my letter to you, that “Jfedlos

contained in that lrt!er and Gen Schenk's
order “reached the Ri.ua* end, ’ ns y*u sup
pose. or net, th-’j certainly prspwol to
retch it by very different mean*.
To estimate correct h this difitnerce, we
must C'linparerhc course respectively taken
by the lfeps:rtni**wt Cnnissandcr* n the two
States. Gi tu-r.il Schofield, in hi* ord.-r of
the 2Sth of September. JSCS, and to which
I understand you to retur. when in your
letter to Li w, above m-utionc*!, you <.vm
mewee by ayEg: Under you* recent
order, whidv I have approved.’ An., lays
down tho fellnwinir a* the military law of
llifseuri an the subject cf el-cti*n.
“The right,” syK ho, “of tin* people
peaceably U assemble for all lawful pur
poßcs. and tlie ;lght freely t express their
will at the polls according to laic, arc es
sential to *i\il liberty. No ii.terfereuce
1 with the?-* rights, either by violence,
: threats, intimidation, or otherwise will be
tolerated ”
Agais, in tho sau:'* ord-r he Ray?:
“Any officer, soldier or civilian, who
shall attempt to intimidate any qualified
voter in the .bXerci*.! of hia right to vote,
or who shall attempt to prevent an}! quail -
Jxed voter ft ■( >Ol going to the polls or voting,
shall be punished by imprisonment *r
otherwise,” If these provisions arc
compared with the first and third sections
!of (ic-urr.il Schcook's order, the contrast.
rather than ihc similarity, will, I think.
| be striking.
In v**ur sain** letter to General Schofield,
i vou further ssv: “At elections, j*3e that
tho.-*-, asd only those, aro allowed lo vote

Though your Kxrclier.er refers to the

suppose, csnci-isllv in view of fh- unqual
ified and *u }; siic tenws in which you re
; cognize the control of the State laws, that
’ you mean to place that recognition upon
i the ground that you approve tho law* of
one State snd not of the other; and, b'sids,
J I think, we might be allowed son.® benefit
'of the eonri fetation that i Missouri they
have recently had a Constitutional Cc*nven
