Good news cuines to us
from every quarter. Letters
from Phenix say : Count on
a majority in Salt river val
ley, for McCormick. 0lie
from Arizona city says : All
alonsc the River McCormick
will get nearly every vote.
W. L- Fowler now in from
San i edro reports : Of 17
votes there, Brady will get
"but two. Mr. Hooker writes
from Prescott to Captain
Hinds, to not bet liisv money
on Brady. A truthful man
pyrites that he heard Brady
"ask. in his maudlin sDeech

pelled to answer for the mis-

paper with as cheerful news.

THE INDIAN VOTE.
At the election, in 1863, only five
Indians on the Pima Eeserve were
found with tickets in their hands seek
ing to vote and in eveiy case the tick
et was for John A. Eush in opposition
to McCorniick, which argues that at
that date McCormick's opponents
were in some way courting the Ind-
lans vote ana iavor prouauiy uy

I blisfted in the CITIZEN next week.
It simply proposes a proper question
to the proper Department for a con
struction upon a franchise law of the
United States nothing more.
The Alta, we believe, was the first
to stir up the subject, and that is the
sluiceway through which tho vaga
bond Mowry is enabled to slander
Gov's McCormick and Safford, and
others, all of whom are truly able
friends of Arizona. The euemies of
McCormick were the first to attempt
to get the Indian vote, andara now the
only ones, if there be anybody, SQek-
McCormick has always, in his acts
bearing upon tho Indians, opposed
each and all their wrongs against, and
their unjust exactions of, the settlers.
He does so yet, and is thus upon the
record as Governor, Delegate and
public writer. Tho chief of his oppo
nents, Mowry, is the bad man who
first started the proposition to enlarge
the Eeservation, and led the Indians
to believe they have rights to tho set
tlers' lands on the Gila ; and the full
truth will exhi": it the fact that the
prime movers to secure the Indians vote
and extend the Pima and Maricopa
Reservation, arc embraced ie the num
ber supporting P. E. Brady for dole
gate. The compooitiuu or tnu men who lead
the opposition against McCorniick and
the People's nominations in this can
vas, is that or knave and fool. They
knavishly charge all sorts of villainies
asraint McCorniick and his friends, and
that the former ha 3 no influence at
"Washington, and in the same breath
credit the defeat of the P. E. E. Bill
to his power over Congress ! Was there
ever greater knavery and foolery ut
tered in one sentence than they do in
There is no necessity for the gods
to make greater bedlamites of Mc
Cormick s opposers, by way of prepa
ration for their destruction.
The People's Pima county conven
tion have selected un excellent ticket
for both legislative and county officers,
and one that will be elected by a very
large majority. The ticket is at the
head of our columns, and blazoned
forth on large double sheet posters,
printed at the Citizen office.
The convection was harmonious
and promptly did its Avork.
The official proceedings appear on
our first page.
The several resolutions are brief,
clear, and devoid of partisan clap-trap.
Good, solid sense pervades them,
making just such a platform as the
people prefer while in a Territorial
condition. There is no useless parade
of national matters, over which, the
people of Arizona have not the least
The convention most heartily and
completely endorsed Hon. E. C. Mc
Cormick's course as Delegate, and ex
pressed a preference for him to serve
longer in that capacity, And he'll do it.
Interesting to Dooner.
The annexed letter was addressed, at
its date, to a prominent gentleman in Tu
son: Tucson, A. T., Oct. 15, 1870.
Sin : As you have expressed a desire
to purchase the press, type, etc., of the
" Arizonan " I beg to inform you that im
mediately after the election, Nov. 8. 1S70,
it will be for sale to the highest bidder.
Win. S. Ourv Esq. is in full power to
make a deed for the sami
four ob't serv't. Sylvester Howry
Col. Sanford's friends on the Gila
are quite unanimous for McCorniick.
Ratification Meeting Last Saturday
The action of the Pima county People's !
convention last Saturday, was most enthu- j
siastically approved in tho evening of that
day. A brilliant display of fireworks pre-
ceded the speeches, and n ')r.is band
gave additional eclat to the exercises. j

biatcd the object of the meeting, and most
heartily endorsed the entire action of the
People's convention. After which, stir-
ring speeches were made by Dr. F. II.
Goodwin, Sr. J. M. Ianza, and Major D.
H. SticVney. We have a full and graphic
report of the speeches, all of which were
able and true. We find room for this
much of Dr. Goodwin's remarks :
"We arc here to-night to ratify the ac
tion of the convention held to-day a con
vention of The People, not a Republican
or Democratic convention. Most of the
delegates to tho convention are democrats,
but no word of partisan feeling has enter
ed into your proceedings, nor do you ex
press partisan feeling in your platform.
You have nominated men from both par
ties, thus showing an active opposition to
the division of our young Territory by par
ty lines. We have no voiee in the coun
cils of the nation, but are supplicants at
its door, and therefore for our own preser
vation let us be united. Wc
want men for offlee who are true, and be
ing true, we care not what their political
creed may be. "We want men who will de
vote their energies and talents to the de
velopment of our vast and now dormant
resources, rather than those who base
their claims to your support upon the nar
row limits of party polities' When the
time comes for us to take our place
among the galaxy of States, and questions
of national polity demand our considera
tion, then, and not until then, let us make
party Issues. As most of you know, gen
tlemen, I am a democrat. My devotion to
to those principles, has cost mc much,
and I have the right, a3 every man present
has, to think and act for myself,
and I ask in all candor, if, because John B.
Allen, Major Aldrieh, and a majority of
such of the democrats of Pima county,
choose to think for themselves, and vote
for the best interests of their country, I
ask if they are jiutly called " nondescripts "
these men who voted the democratic
ticket before the little gentleman who as-1
pires to lead them, was born."
The meeting was the largest ever held in
Pima county, and proved what a vast ma
jority of the people are for the People's
nominees for all the offices from constable
up to Delegate.
Each of the five" legislatures that
have assembled in Arizona, passed
with rare unanimity resolutions highly
complimenting Governor McCor
mick for eminent capacity, integrity
and impartiality, in nearly every:!
instance the majority did not political
ly agree with him, but they recognized
in him a high order of ability and
official probity, and placed that recog
nition in unmistakeable language in
the Territorial Statutes.
Mr. E. 1ST. Pish, with hi3 own hand,
resigned his office of supervisor of
Pima County: but that did not prevent
nor deter the malicious booby of the
Arizonan charging that some One else
wrote the resignation, and committed
forgery by signing Mr. Fish's name
to it. Anybody who knows his signa
ture can see how false tho charge is by
examining the document on file in the
What a bad cause this fellow has
to advocate, when his own paper is
proof that he has no truth with which
to recommend it to public favor.
Our space utterly excludes the Tubac
correspondence. After election, gentle
men, your diary of events in that quarter
will be very acceptable and published.
