THE ARIZONA CITIZEN.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1870.
VOTE OF THE TERRITORY.
The official vofco has bean received ,
for Delegate, at the office of the Sec
retary of the Territory, from Pima,
Yuma and Pah Ute counties, to-wit :
McCormick received in Pima coun
ty, 449; in Yuma county, 7.'JS'; in
Pah Ute county, 162.
Brady received in Pima county,
2;8 ; in Yuma county, S3 ; Pah "Ute
county, none.
En Yavapai county there is a repor
ted majority of 12!3 for Brady ; and in
Hohave county there is a reported
majority of 50 for McCormick.
Total numbar of votes cast lor Mc
Cormick, 1399 : for Brady, 417.
Sylvester Mowry received one vote
in Yuma county.
McCormick's majority is therefore
982 in the-Territory.
This may be varied a few votes by
the official canvass in Mohave and
Yavapai counties.
The three river counties poll OS 6
votes, of which Brady gets 34, Mowry
one, and McGormick 951. Cusenba
ry none.
Mowry boats Cusenbary one vote in
the river counties.
Castle Dome District.
Castle Dome is one of the most cel
ebrated land-marks in Arizona; is
some forty miles north of Arizona
City. The quartz and galena inter
ests there are looking up materially,
and give promise of ab significant note
in the mining world as the curiously
shaped mountain excites in the eye of
the traveler. About forty men arj at
work thereabouts, and others wore ex
pected to commence operations soon.
Messrs. Phillip & Spann, of Arizona
City, are interested there, and are the
representatives of capitalists largely
engaged in silver mining. In one of
their mine3 there, the injtal is devel
oped in great quantities Avhich will as
say 40 and 60 per cent, silver and lead
respectively . These mines being near
the Colorado river, it h a compara
tively easy matter to ship the ore to
Han Francisco and elsewhere for re
duction. Mr. Barney, and others at
Arizona City, are interested in this
district, and are having work done
accordingly.
Wo expect to have a regular letter
from that burg soon. It and the sur
roundings ought to furnish the most
readable correspond jnco of any conur
of the Territory. Mining, navigation,
military, gossip, shipment of goods,
movement of teams, travel, Ac., all
r-
Hi
ombine to make Arizona City a vory
iutercsting point indeed, and one in
which our readers most all have a
p-irticular interest.
Reduction m Taxes.
It may not be genera lly known that
on October 1, the n iw TJ. S. revenue
law took effect, and that it abolishes
the tax on sales of all merchandise ex
cept liquor and tobacco, the tax of
one-twelfth of one per cent, on the
gross earnings of all railroads, and the
tax requiring a stamp on every re
ceipt over twenty dollars. These
points represent an immense reduction
in the sum total of internal revenue
taxation, but there are other reduc
tions. The stamp on all promissory
notes under one hundred dollars is
abolished. If a mortgage deed be
properly stamped, no stamp in future
will be needed on the assignment.
The income tax of five per cent, is re
duced to two-and-a-half per cent.,
payable in March, 1371. The exemp
tion from tax, hitherto fixed under
one thousand dollars income, is rais d
to two thousand doUars, which will
let off very many thousands from ob
ligations to the internal revenue in
this particular.
Official Directory. Hereafter
we shall give a corner of tbe paper to
a list of leading civil and military of
ficers of tbe Territory, their place of
residence, etc., and a list of officials in
Pima county. See 4th page.

"Wasson left for San Francisco by
Thursday's coach on official business.
It is his purpose to procure all plats, re
cords, documents, &c, appertaining to
the work in Arizona, Avhich was per
formed under the direction of the Surveyor-General
of California, and put
forth every effort to have tho proper
plats furnished the Register, at Pres
cott, at as early a date as possible. It
is the duty of the office in California
to execute all plats for surveys com
pleted, and forward them, but so far
none have been received at Prescott,
and therefore the farmers on tho Gila
and Salt River are disappointed at
what is not the fault of the Land offi
cers in Arizona. General "Wasson will
expedite, as far as possible, tho execu
tion and delivery of these plats to
the office at Prescott, though it is no
part of his duty to do so. His visit to
San Francisco is made wholly on ac
count of official business, and will be
brief, and may be expected back with
in thirty days.
Ilecibo de Fusiles.
El Gov. Safford recibio dos cientos
cincuenta fusiles que forman la parte

no se las puodeii procurer a su costo

Deseaxdo el Gov. Safford que se

! The war in Europe drags its slow
length along, with the hope, and be
lief at least, that half a dozen other
powers will be drawn into the fight.
Russia evidently wants to raise the
Turkish blockade in the Black Sea,
during tho geneial trouble, and we
don't blame her. The Turk is a big
ger nuisance in Europe than Biigham
in America ever dare be or can be.
The vote of Yavapai county was
1112 at the late election. This vote
was cast by a population of, as per
census repoit, 2134. If Yuma county
was playing for the largest vote in
proportion to the population, she has
been greatly outdone by Yavapai.

This mendacious creature, in his pa
per of Xov. 19th, declared that " ac
cording to the census just taken, Ari
zona Gity has a pomls,tion (men,
women and children) of 336," and
continued with equally false assertions
about frauds, &c. j

truth is so notorious that we intended j

Arizona City, Nov. 24, '70. !
Editor Citizen : Seeing an article ;
in The Arizonan in reference to the i
population of Arizona City, I wish to j
inform the editor that he is entirely !
mistaken in what he publishes ; and I'
wish you would publish this following '
statement as to the real population otY

Yours truly,
HOHACE C. LlXDSKY, j
Assistant Marshal of Census, i
Does any one suppose The Arizonan i
will ever publish the above official!
statement, and acknowledge that its!
editor delights in supplementing hisj
intense ignorance Avith brazen false-;
hoods, even at the expense of the best j
common interests of the Territory r
If the do they are mistaken, though j
by such a course he would but tell the
truth. " It is a foul bird," etc.
To People Between Tucson and San i
Diego. I
There are certain kinds of business
at tho different points between Tucson
and San Diego, that would bo be neut
ral bv fidvertiinfr in the CITIZEN"
! much more than the cost of the inser
tion such as wholesale and jobbing
business; hotels, eating and lodging
houses; forwarding and commission
houses ; furniture ; hay and grain, &c.
A notice in the paper, scattered as it
will be at all the different stations,
will servo as a directory to what you
frequently are looking ahead for, out
cannot otherwise ascertain. Tho trav
el on the southern overland route is
certainly increasing, hence the advan
tage of advertising at this particular
point, is quite apparent. Tucson is
also a general cross-roads for the in
terior continent, and travel across lots
from Sonora to Salt Lake, necessarily
passes directly through this region.
A certain adveitisoment in this paper,
but lately, as a:i instance, took half a
dozen orders to oats San Diego house.
We don't ask anything in our line for
nothing, as "to help the paper along,"
but as a matter of ousiness to all.

Sometime soon we intend to give a his
tory of the old leading, heavy linns estab
lished in Arizona, but at present we direct
attention to the one mimed in the caption
of this article 1 their status for Mipply-
ing interior traders with all varieties of
goods needed in the Territory, at the
cheapest wholesale rates. The time and
annoyance saved by purchasing from that
house, will more than counterbalance as a
general thing, all the little deference in
price in favor of purchasing direct from
San Francisco. They keep half a million
stock on hand all the time, and have got
to sell at the lowest margin. They are'lo
cated at the pruvtical entrepot of the Ter
ritory, and the quantities of goods they
job out to the ditlerent settlements, are
something enormous. It is a ceaseless
stream, and its source is one of great con
venience throughout.
The Miner seems to have shifted
a' large portion of its wrath from Gov.
AEcCormick to Gov. Safford. It is
well, because tired as his readers are
of his low slang, it is a little relief to
substitute a new name. If his vulgar
attacks upon Gov. Safford does the
editor of The Aliner any good, no one
should complain, for it certainly does
Gov. Saiford no harm, as his efforts
for the people and acquaintance with
thtm place him far beyond the possi
bility of injury from such a source.
From Prescott. The mail got in
this morning, bringing Tho Miner to
the 26th ult. Nothing new in mi
ning water dried up; one mill run
ning. A deserter was shot and killed
near "Wickenburg. A man named D.
Gagin killed by wagon in Mohave
county. Half a dozen new subscri
bers for The Citizen, with cash accompaniment.
