further, Uiia " originality " U wen in hie or
ganizing a "People's jiarty " and running
ajjn their tickets, in the several counties in
the late election. His Republicanism is trnlv
original ! It is something new and diflerentl
irom anything kmnvn or heard of before.
Tba IinUHn says: " Although the vcc
of Governor Mcoonntck is gratifying to bk
Republican friends, it is not claimed & ,t par
tisan triMmnh." T"hi must mean his M Re
IHiblkrmfl friends " outaide of Arizona, for thy
are few ami far Inetwen in this Territory.
It Is a notorioas fact that thin political scro
lwt could not get a nomination from the Re
publican for any offlne in the Territory.
His conscknuneas of the fact is een in lit
tu)fts to prevent a Repubiicxa Convention
being called, and hk running on a mongrel
" J'eopte' ticket." He has made a display
of bis ioliticaI pyrotechnics too often, and
there are too many witniHas of his ground
and lofty tumbling in the politio&l arena to
command the least confidence in his political
Roth the AUn and DvUtfin hare been sadly
imposed on. Sust hear how they tickle the
unbounded vanity of this " troolv" (a Nat by
would say) "onjrinal Republiosn. Now.
Jut listen ul what the UulUua atsrs, ye men
of I'recoU : " The reauU was due to Gover
nor M Conuick, who has labored moro assid
uoesdy and SH-cefuIly for the beat intoresta
of Arizona than any other ofllcial. Ills intel
ligence awl energy will enable him to promote
its national weitare at Washington." Botao
thise very much like this has been reed in
the MixsK in days or yore.
Now comes the AUaU turn to speak. It
says: "Governor ilcConmck has proved
himself to be a useful, eiSriwit awl puW'KJ
tpirited eiocuttve officw. He will be a valu
able rrinfarceawnt to the Pacine coast dele
ration in Congress," How does that found
in your oar up at Prwcott, where you have
known the Governor, as a neighbor, for the
last live years, and when you only gave him
thirty-five votes, out of about two hundred
cast at the late election for Delegate. You
raaat be a lot of ingratoa, up there. It was
full time the capital was put on wheels, if
you are incajnble of a proper appreciation of
me virtues ami excellencies of the otllcial and
personal character of the Governor. Why
the Jlmmin an I Aaa, at tan Pranmoo, sao,
at that great distance, things which you
either don't tee or are wilfully blind to w a
mystery. What excuse have you iocorrigl
bles north of the Gila, and ouUide of lruna
county where you did not give him more
than one-third of your votes for not com
prehending and appreciating tho 'intelligence
and energy,1 the .Wi luous and feuecoMdu! la
bors for the best interests of Arizona, of tho
"useful, ellknent, and public-spirited execu
tive otlicer." found in our "original Re
publican " Governor and Delegate elect. You
are arraigned at the bar of the Alia awl Jtd
Ash. Now, aiviwer. I think I hear you
say : Well, if we must out with the truth,
here it is: First, Our 'original Republican'
Governor h a man of words instead of deods.
He spends too much ink ami paper on procla
mations. He is too brilliant an example of
i he trot h of the old tnssim, that, " Tho empty
vessel makes the most noise," and a flat
contradiction of that nthw kjrin "Still
water rurw deoD." The Alia and IMMdni
would have u believe that deep water makes
as much noise as shallow water, which is a
contradiction tn terms and a violatltft of the
laws of nature, as it seems to us. We are
sorry to differ on so fundamental a point with
the AUa and HtUlUm that is, wo poojile
north of the Gila and outside of Pima oounty.
Four words, with the addition of a conjunc
tion, oxproes, fully, the official character and
career of our "original Republican" Gover
nor, meddle and muddle, bluster and blun

Tho National Republican Platform.
Relow we print, for the accommodation of
our Republican readers, the platform of prin
ciple upon which thoir party now Rtands.
This platform ffhi mado by the Republican
National Convention that asombIcd at Chi
cago, on the 20th day of May, I8C8. Wo
copy it from a Republican paper, and our Re
publican friends, may rest assured thnt it is
"according to copy:"
VHtbU We congratulate tho countrv on the
I assured success of the reconstruction projects
' of Congress, as evinced by the adoption, in a
majority ot tne Mates lately in relelIion, of
constitutions securing eqaal civil and politi
cal right to all, and regard it as tho duty of
the Government to sustain theo institutions
and to prevent the people of such States
from being remitted to a state of anarchy.

Third. We denounce all forms of repudia
tion as a national crime, and national honor re
quire the tymcnt of the public indebtcd
neas in the utmost good faith to all creditors,
at home ami abroaili not only according to
the letter but the spirit of the laws under
which it was contracted.
Fmrtk. The national debt, contracted as it
has len for the prew?rvation of the Union
for all time to come, should be extended over
a fair period for redemption, and it is the
duty of Congos to reduce the rate of inter
est thereon whenever it can possibly be done.
Sixth. That the best policy to diminish our
burden of debt is to so improve our credit
that capitalists will wk to loan us money at
lower rate of intart than we now j-sv, and
iaut coatinas to pay so long as repudiation,
partial or total, open or covert, is threatened
or suspected. .
Stctnih. The Government of the United
States should be ad (Ministered with the strict
est economy, and the oorraptioRs which hare
ahansefully ouned and foorl by
other olilccr to ignore and violate the
Mw ' sas employed Ida executive power to
insecure tne prupcnfy, peace, liberty,
and life of the citizens; has abued the iar-
ooaing ower; Has iienouncetl the Nattoiul
Ispsbiturc unconstitutional ; has persiat
eatly ami corruptly reisted, by every means
in his power, every proper attempt at the re
construction of the State lately in rebellion;
has perrerted the pubfie ;airaa&ge into an
eagtneof wbohwale corruption, and has tteen
jually impeached for high crimes and mtsde
laeanorv. and nrwieriy proBoonred guilty by
the vote of thirty -fire Senator.
iVwsli. The .doctrine of Great Rritain and
other Rstropean towor, that because a man
is once a subject he is always so, raut be re
sist ed at every luuard by the United States,
as a relic of the feudal timet, not authorized
by the raw of nations, and at war with our
nations! honor and independence. N&tnrsl-
f,cUzeus are cothied to be protected in
all their right of citizenship u though they
n wr whit 00m, aon no aiizen 01 tne cnited
State, native or naturalized, must be liable
to arrest and imprisonment by any foreign
power Car acts done or words spoken In this
country. And if 10 arrated and imprisoned,
it is the duty of the Government to interfere
in his behalf.
7'rttOt. Of all who were faithful in the tri
als of the late -war there were nono entitled
to more especial honnr than the brave soldiers
and seamen who oudured the hardships of
campaign nu enme, ana imperilled their
lives in the service of the country. The
bounties ami pensions provided by law for
these Le2vc dftMsdf r? of the nation ttt obli
gations ncrer to be forgotten. The widows
and orphans of the gallant dead are the wards
of the peoiile, n sacred legacy bequeathed to
the nation's protecting rare.
IJetmtth. Foreign emigration, which in the
past has added so much to the wealth and
development of the resources, and the increase
of power of tat nation, "the awylum of the
oppressed of all nations," should be fostored
and eneouragifd by a liberal and jwt policy.
T(ftL This convention declares its sym
jwthy with all the opprceed people who arc
struggling for their rights.
On motion of General Carl Schurz. the fol
lowing additional resolutions were unani
mously adopted as part of the platform :
limited, That we highly commend thespirit
of magnanimity and forbearance with which
the man w ho Imvo sorved in the rebellion,
but now frankly and honestly cooperate with
us in restoring the peace of the country and
reconstructing the Southern State govern
ments upon the basis of impartial justice and
equal rights, are received back, into the com
munion of the loyal people; and we favor the
removal of 'the disqualifications and restric
tions fmpod upon tho late ratal in the
same measure an their spirit of loyalty will
direct, and as may be consistent with the
safety of the loyal people
Jluobud, That we recognize the groat prin
