THE ARIZONA' CITIZEN.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1870.
For Delegate to Congress.
RICHARD C. McCORMIC
In the brief letter to the now recre
ant editor of the "Arizonan," in which
Governor McCoruiick announced him
self as a candidate for re-election, ho
stated that he should run. upon ths
same plain platform upon which he
ran in 1868. . Hero it is in full, aud
we ask, can anything be more in ac
cordance with what the people want
at this time?
TO THE PEOPLE 01" AEIZ0NA.
Tucson, March 12, 1S68.
In. accordance with the smriresticns
of friends in each county, I hereby
present myself as a candidate for Del
egate to Congress at the ensuing gen
eral election, "Wednesday, June '6.
If elected I will vigorously labor to
procure from Congress and the De
partments those measures of assistance
to which the people are entitled and
which are essential to the speedy and
successful development of the rich re
sources of the Territory.

The people of Arizona are

initial number of the Arizo
na Citizen, and it m ill be

To all those familiar with
the circumstances which in-
ducedits publication, no apol
ogy need be given for the
large syi&ee occupied with po
liti al matters, and they will
not expect a change until af
ter the ensuing election. In
the interim, court jp'dceed
ings and other official doings
in Tucson, matters of local
interest to the public, the
movements of troops, etc.,
will receive due attention in
At all times in the future,
it will give preference to the
publication of matters per
suing to Arizona, and nev-v-r
permit prejudice to warp
our comments upon any por
tion of the Territory. Due
justice to all sections 'should
detract from bone.
In the present canvass, it
will advocate the re-election
of Hon. .Richard 0. McCor
mick as delegate to Congress,
knowing him to be eminently
(jualified, and. far superior to
ins opponent for the position;'
and the nominees of the Peo
ple's Convention for members
of the Legislature and coun
ty officers will receive gn
nine support, as they will be
the only candidates for the re
spective offices at the coming
election selected, by delegates
regularly chosen by the peo
ple of the several precincts
in Pima county,
Mechanical defects in this
number were unavoidable, as
the materials at hand and in
use were never intended for
a complete paper, but to fill
up the Arizonan office. What
is wanting t make a me
chanically neat and tjtsty
newspaper has been ordered,
and will be here soon.
In this number of our pa
per will be found all the laws
governing elections in this
Territory. They will guide
inspectors" and all officers, as
well as voters, at the ensuing
election. Copies of the paper
will be furnished to all elec
is solicited from all settle
ments and military posts in
the Territory. When too
lengthy for our space, it will
be abridged so as to preserve
the writer's meaning. Anon
ymous letters will be cast out
with other refuse.
The editor of the Arizonan
regarded the support of his
sheet. of no value but thought
its suppression worth $3,000.
The abolition of some nuisan
ces dearly cost a people, but
in this instance nothing only
the wrong the thing has done
them in the past.
In his string of misrepresentations,
dignified by the name of speech, in the
Court House, on the night of the 5 th
instant, the self-styled Honorable Syl
vester Mowry very improperly and
naturally cast imputations upon the!
grand jury, then in session. The next
morning, hid Honor, .Judge Titus, very
properly had the f jllow brought before ;
the Court to oiplain, if he could, the
ground of the charges made As was
anticipated, he denied ajid took back
all he said. This foul attack on the ;
administration of justice, is of the same j
character, as are aii thoso made
Sylvester MowiiY complained in
his public remarks, at the Court House,
that ho had nver- S3an McCormick at
the receptions of the President and other
notable men in Washington. No mat
ter for surprise bycause such fellows
as Mowry aro not admitted to thoso
state levees, and therefore Mowry is
not to blame for not seeing McCormick
Sokora Coming. Parties just in
from Magdalena, say they passed at
least 600 men. women and children on
their way to Tucson f roni various parts
of Sonora. They arc coming in wagons, j
carts, onpack animals, and on foot, j
They are mostly veiy poor, as are 1
those who remain behind, and coma
hither seeldng, employment which
seams scarce and poorly reuumeraUid
The silly Ligo who pens the non
sense and falsehoods for the 'Arizonan'
was instinctively moved to misrepre
sent, in his last dirty number, Ben C.
Truman, the talented editor of the San
Diego Bulletin, by declaring he had
prov,-d as false as himself and had re
fused to longer support McCormick.
in the first place, Mr. Truman is a
man of integrity and intelligence, and
gives his support . to men upon true
principle and does not go back on his
own or the public's friend, and there
fore still heartily advocates the re
election of McCormick, as the current
and coming numbers of the BULLETIN'
will abundantly exhibit; secondly, the
"Arizonan" man willfully and against'
ample proof did his best to misrepre
sent Mr. Tinman to his few readers.
Musketoe3 may annoy men but can
not injure them.

HZcGORSSICK ON THE GILA.
Adamsvillc, Oct. 12, IStO.
Editor Citizen : Gov. McCormick
and party arrived here on Monday, and
after a brief d.day, proceeded to Flor
ence, whure the Governor spoke in the
evening of that day, Yesterday he re
turned here, accompanied by a num-i
bar .of citizens of Florence, and in the !
evening addressed a largo meeting.
Both at the Florence and Adamsvillc
meetiug3, Gov. Saiford was called
upon, and spoke briefly and earnestly.
At both nlaces, and all aloner the
river, he has been cordially received j
by his friends, and he has made new ;
ones. Thero is no doubt that ho will
get a majority of the American vote
on the river and a full share of the

supported Brady for Sheriff, but they
think McCormick bettor qualified for
Brady is to speak to night. He ar
rived yesterday with Fields. McCor
mick invited Brady to meet him on the
stump, but he declined, aud was heard
to sa3r he preferred to spiak when
McConnick and party had left, which
is doubth33 the fact.
The movement for a People's
County Convention meets much
favor, and delegates will be sent from
Florence and this place. McCormick
and party leave to-day for McDowell.
The Pima and Maricopa resorvation
has not beai extended, and if by the
military survey for the proposed exten
sion, Mericopa-"Wells ba left out we
know that no shadow of responsibility
attaches to McCormick. lie has from
the start vigorously opposed the exten
sion in any form.
THE GILA. ROAD.
"How any man living upon the Gila
Road can veto for Mr. Mowry 's can
didato for Delegate, P. R. Brady, we
cannot imagine, when.ijb ia remember
ed that Mowry has boasted for a year
past that he deprived the residents on
that road of their jusr patroange, and
would do so now if ho could.
In liis abusive lettar of Governor
McCormick in the San Francisco AUa,
he grossly misrepresents the road and
attacks the interests of all persons liv
ing upon it. Some of his outrageous
misstatements are as follows :
"The road from Arizona City to
Tucson up the Gila has a very small
population, and the country is not as
available for settlement as on the

Can any one who live3 upon the
Gila road think of voting for the can
didate of a man who will deal in such
Klarinjr falsehoods ?
From every town and settlement
in the Territory, wo have received the
most cheerful news of the canvass in
favor of McCormick'3 reelection. The
letters aro written by the most promi
nent men, many of whom are Demo
crats. The most careful comparison of all
facts and reports received, show that
McCormick will beat Brady by a
majoriy of at least three to one. In the
meantime his friends are active and
should be, so that the victory may be
