A Falsehood Officially Refuted.
"We alluded last Avcek to the brazen
falsehood of the Brady party that the
Territorial arms had been unfairly
distributed that the rich and He
Cormick's friends had been favored
above the Oury, ATowry and Brady
ring. Adjutant General Phelps has
since kindly furnished us with a trans
cript of his record in the matter, and
it shows Gr. H. Oury to have received
six. ; Isaac Goldberg, nine ; Goldberg
and Co., six; Thomas SI. Yerkes,
eleven; D. A. Bennet, one; J. W. Swil
ling, ten ; A. J. Ttidge, two ; F. SI.
Hodges, two; Sylvester Slowry, one ;
L. B. Wooster, two ; &c, &c. But
for a lack of " sorts," we would pub
lish the entire list, which shows that
out of 224 arms and a corresponding
amount of ammunition, the Brady
men, in proportion to numbers, have
had more than their share. "We chal
lenge an investigation of the list in
our office, or the record of General
The truth is, that when arms were
sought by individuals the questions of
their wealth or poverty, their prefer
ence for or against Brady, were never
thought of or considered ; and, further,
during the time when the arms were
mainly distributed, there was not a
stronger advocate of McCormick' a re
election? in Arizona, than P. li. Brady.
The Adjutant General is responsible
for the return or the arms and the on
ly condition upon which they were
given out was that of JAic getter's re
sponsibility, or some one for him.
This condition baing satisfactory, no
applicant was ever refused an arm
upon application, unless it were at a
time when there were none in the ar
Gkajtvtlle H. Oury's disqualifica
tions for sheriff are treated of by a
correspondent. Oury has defied the
law and courts by refusing to pay his
taxes. He now wants the people to
elect hini to a position in which it
would be his duty to collect the coun
ty revenues. Is a man who success
fully evades paying his own faxes, a
fit one to collect and handle the taxes
of law-abiding citizens V Is it possi
ble that the tax payers of Pima county
will elect such a man as Oury has
proven himself, to the responsible po
sition he seeks "? Will property own
ers pay their taxes into the hands of a
man who has set the example of non
"Wo believe the voters Avill emphat
ically say not on next Tuesday.
A vote for Oury for sheriff, is a 'vote
in favor of holding property and re
fusing to pay taxes thereon.
A vote for Ott for sheriff is a vote to
abide by the laws as they stand upon
the Statute books and. as expounded
by the courts ; a vote for Oury is a
vote in opposition to this necessary
condition of citizenship.
Voters Avill bear in mind that the
public and private character of H. Ott
is without the least blemish. "Will
anyone say .as much of Oury? Is
there any doubt which sJtoitld be
Yote the People's ticket and there
by condemn the purely demagogic de
mand to vote for a man because he is
a partisan, in preference to one who is
amply qualified for the office he seeks.
By voting for Oury for sheriff, the
doctrine of refusal to pay taxes, and
thereby impoverishing the county and
Territorial treasuries is endorsed ; by
voting for Ott the contrary is ap
EiGUTT-seven votes on Salt River, and
an exact canvass shows that McCormick
will get one-half, at least. This is fact.
To All Tax Payers. The Sheriffalty.
The coming election on November
S, is one of great significance, especial
ly to the people of Pima county.
There are two candidates in the field
for sheriff, asking for the votes of the
Mr. H. Ott, nominated as the Peo
ple's candidate, and Granville H.
Oury, who runs as the nominee .of a
clique of " 3 times 3," styling them
selves the Democracy not only of Pi
ma county, but of the whole Territo
ry, as well.
Let us take into consideration the
nomination for sheriff of this immortal
nine, who invited Sylvester Jbwry
down here from the San Francisco
Pacific Glub rooms to run for Dele
gate, and afterwards repudiated him.
(By the way, itfbwry, we are afraid
that you were contaminated by your
association, though it might be said
that it is hard to spoil a rotten egg.)
Granville H. Oury ! "What has he
done that we should give him our
votes ? and Avhat has he left undone,
that Ave should withhold our support ?
1st. Failing to beat JWcCormick in
1868, he was the prime mover in the
quo warranto decision as rendered by
Judge Backus, by which, as far as in
him and his coadjutors lay, the Terri
tory was disorganized.
2d. He was the adviser of Secreta
ry Gartter, Acting Governor in1869,
and by his influence no proamation
was issued calling an eleqjfon in that
year for county officers, and the elec
tion was allowed to go by default.
Now as to what has not been done,
that as a good citizen he should have
been prompt- to perform.
In 1S(5S, while the quo warranto case
was pending, he refused to pay his
taxes on the ground that no nublic of
ficers had teen elected according to
law. He repeated the same thing in
1869, as the quo warranto decision had
not then been reversed ; but when that
decision was pronounced not well con
sidered and the laws passed by the
various legislatures confirmed by the
highest tribunal,- did this citizen Oury
bow to that decision and pay up his
arrearages of taxes ? 2So, sirs, not a
bit of it. The execution against him
for taxes has been returned (unsatis
fied), and G. H. Oury leads the delin
quent tax-list to-day, thereby increa
sing your burdens and mine and those
of every man who honestly pays his
taxes. Therefore, Ave Avill here leave
him, believing that Ave have stated
enough that cannot be successfully re
futed, to influence every man that Avill
think and reason a moment, that
Granville H. Oury is not entitled to
his support. So look out, Grant, the
Avave is coming that will roll over
and carry you doAvn to oblivion, for
on next Tuesday, the people of Pima
county Avill put the seal of popular
condemnation upon you, that all may
knoAV hoAV they vieAv your acts, and
those of your clique, for the last tAvo
years at least.
On the other hand, Sir. Ott becomes
a candidate for your suffrages, and
Avhat are his claims ?
Ho is a man of excellent business
ability, integrity, and honesty, and
that for the number of years ho has
resided in the Territory, has never
evaded his responsibilities aa a citi
zen, and has never attempted to bring
anarchy and confusion upon us as a
FcIIoav citizens of Pima county, look
first upon the picture of G. H. Oury,
and then upon that of H. Ott, and
choose you this day Avhom you will
have to serve you and your interests.

P. It. Brady spoke to the citizens of
Phenix on Saturday. We failed to
hear him speak of the wants of the
people in this or any other part of the
Territory, his time being entirely oc

Salt river that he did not care a damn
for them, as he did not live here.

The only good thing Avas said by
JUbwry, viz.: That if the Democratic
party nominated the devil, it Avas the
duty of all true Democrats to support
him. 'Whether this Avas intended as a

not say ; but one thing I vri'l say,

Editor Citizex : The political
cauldron continues to boil Avith una
bated vigor, and discussions of the
merits of the riAral candidates are very
frequent. The Slexioun element of
our place has thoroughly aAvakened
to the importance of casting an intel
ligent and discriminaiing vote, and as
a consequence "are A-ery inquisitive on
the point of, Avho is the best man to
represent them in the halls of con
gress ? By some method of reasoning
they have arrived at' the sensible con
clusion, that experience in Washing
ton is more essential to a candidate
than a knowledge of the Spanish lan
guage. Assaults on a rival, provoked
by the purity of his linen, does not
seem to influence them. They, on the
contrary, agree that dress and address
are both useful at the capitol of the
Your paper is sought after eagerly
by both Americans and ilfeucans, and
the general comment is that it is far
ahead of the Arizonan in the quality of
its reading matter and its typograph
ical appearanc. The course it takes
in espousing the cause of Honorable
R. C. ilcCorniick meets with the ap
probation of everyone.
Tns miserable and foolish slanders
of the Mowry-Brady party that Mc
Cormick opposed the 32d parallel rail
road, induced us to surrender much of
bur space to his testimony in relation
thereto. It completely convicts them
of the basest falsehoods or the basest
ignorance ; but the campaign has pro
ven them guilty of both charges in
many other respects. Persistent false
hood, vicious personal detraction and
inexcusable ignorance constitute their
political stock hi trade. The offensive
compound Avill not Avin.
