Dec. 17, "TO.
The 4 Associated Press' Imposed
By telegram from Los Angeles (Dec,
'2 7th), it was announced to the 'Associ
ated Press,' that " over eight hundred
fraudulent votes for McOormick had
been discovered," and that " Governor
Safford, the Secretary, Surveyor Gen
eral and other officials are implicated
in the frauds."
We know that many false statements
and sensational reports without foun
dfttion, are sent over the wires some
times by design and sometimes by acci
dent, but how a story so entirely des
titute of truth should have been palm
d off on the telegraph operator and
thfc Associated Press,' we were at first
at a loss ixvknow. But by comparing
the dates of the letter of S. M.' (Syl
vester Mowry) to The Alta a sheet of
such pauncheous proportions and char
acteristic management that it must
use everything sent it for stuffing, and
never pays for anything good if it can
avoid it; a 'respectable' blanket for
' S. M.' in the late campaign, and still
lodges him we find that he must
have been in the vicinity of Los An
geles at the time ; and then the only
wonder with us was, that any tele
graph operator was verdant enough or
Drrupt enough to become the medium
through which a man so untruthfu1
and unreliable in all respects, should
be allowed to impose upon the public,
Mowry may have told the operator how
his friend Jeff. .Davis had esteemed
him so highly and considered his ser
vices so valuable as a spy, that he ei
ther sent or was to send him a commis
sion as Confederate Governor of Aii
zona, and how abominably General
Carlton used him, just as honors were
to be showered upon him, by placing
him in durance vile at Ft. Yuma. "We
hardly think he continued the record,
however, and told him what every one
knows to be the facts : that for years
he has lived on free lunches, and small
loans he occasionally recieves from the
land-hearted or unsuspecting, until his
very name in San Francisco, New
York and Washington is synonymous
with that of " bummer;" that in Ari
zona every strategy was resorted to by
those he was operating with politically
to get rid of him, knowing that he
would damn and sink any cause, and
that neither persuasion nor direct cuts
could relieve them of his presence un
til the last drop of free political whis
ky was exhausted. We do not consid
er it a disgrace to be poor, but for a
man like Mowry, who assumes all the
airs of a nobleman, never speaks of
having a friend of less note than a
President, Senator or General; who
was first educated at the expense of
the government and then tried to de
stroy it the first opportunity he had ;
who has realized from the sale of
doubtful mining stocks, in a few years,
hundreds of thousands of dollars from
his best friends, and spent the same in
debauchery and dissipation, until ho
has reached the lower level of degreda
tion ; that he should still continue to
impose upon the public, and find sluice
ways to getxsff his' slime and corrup
iiou, is something we do not under
stand. 'The Citizen' The Mexicans.
We commence a column of notes and
.3ws for the special benefitjof those of
our patrons and friends who read only
Spanish, expecting to be benefited in
return, as we shall continue it right
along, fresh and to the point. Let the
patrons generally rememember this, if
they please. . . .Our Hermosillo well
wishers, who are getting the campaign
papers yet, clamor for more news and
less politics, and we promise to please
them far as possible, and they in turn
must come to the center. The Sono
rans generally will need the paper.
Failure. Word from Guaymas to

Double Death to the Apache !
The appointment of an Indian Agent
for Arizona 'of Jewish faith' (and wo
presume, practice), coupled with the
following 'special' from Washington,
notwithstanding Grant holds to the
broadbrim policy generally, leaves us
to infer that the Apache is to be scalp
ed wherever a head can be discovered.
All we want now is the cavalry :
