Silver was quoted yesterday at 11.10 per
ounce; copper aM17.COperlOO pounds, and lead
at 5 25 per 100 pounds.
Tim Itepublicans of Maricopa county
in their convention yesterday did well
Theyworked carefully and deliberately
and the result is a ticket pronounced by
the oldest settlers the strongest ticket
ever nominated by the Republican party
of this county. Every notninco is a true
and tried Republican, well-known for
his industry and untiring efforts for tiio
advancement of thsTerritory. Everyman
has his homo and his interests here,
nnd as such a resident cannot fail to
make a good official. Every clement of
the party is represented from tho
pioneer who fought Indians and made
his own trail into the valley, to tho
young man of more recent residence
With such a tickot tho Republicans
can go before tho people and consist
ently ask their support, and if voters
consider their best interests they will
elect the ticket without a break.
Yesterday nfternoon a dispatch from
Washington conveyed the intelligence
that a Governor had at last been ap
pointed for Arizona. Tiic name of John
B. Irwin, of Keokuk, Iowa, was sent by
the President to the Senate for confirma
tion to that position. Arizona is to
bo congratulated upon obtaining for her
executive a gentleman of such ability and
attainments, a politician of such a high
rank and National reputation as is John
15. Irwin. He is one of tho foremost
merchants of his city, but has won
laurels in the political arena. Ho has
been honored by election to tho ofilco of
Mayor of Keokuk, has several times
served in tho State Legislature and was
Governor of the Territory of Idaho under
the Garfield-Arthur regime. He is a
magestic and forciblo speaker and is
ever in active demand in all public
assemblies. Ho is highly thought of by
his neighbors, deservedly popular by
reason of his sunny temperament, tact
and courtesy. Ho is small in stature,
yet has upon him the unmistakable
stamp of a commanding nature. Ho is
in his fortieth year and has an attrac
tive family, who will no doubt become
residents of Phoenix.
it. c. rowKitH.
Governor It. C. Towers, tho nominee
for Council, is a man who has had
much experienco in tiio political world,
a man of excellent attainments, of rare
intelligence, and a speaker who com
mands the interest of all who hear him.
Ho was born in Ohio in 1830, derived
a knowledge of the rudimentary
branches from tho common schools,
afterward entering tho University of
Michigan. After several years spent in
that institution ho removed to Schenec
tady, X. Y., where ho took his degree
from that famous university, Union
College, and aftc tho conclusion of tho
war was further honored with thodegrco
of Master of Arts.
Upon the breaking out of tho war ho
at onco enlisted and roso through tho
subordinate ranks to tho distinction of
Lieutenant-Colonel. Ho was much of
tho time in tho Army of tho Cumber
land, serving at different periods upon
tho staffs of Generals Sherman and
Thomas as Adjutant General in tho
Fourth Array Corps.
After tho war, Colonel Powers went to
Mississippi and, having faith in tho
future of tho conquered country, bought
a largo cotton plantation. He assisted
in tho reconstruction of tho State and in
1809 was elected Lieutenant-Governor.
In 1872 ho was chosen, by a flattering
majority, Governor, and filled tho ofilco
with credit for tho ensuing two years.
In 1878 Governor Powors camo to
Arizona and accepted a position in tho
ofilco of the Survoyor-General. For tho
last flvo years ho has been a resident of
Maricopa county, having extensive land
and canal interests in the Lower Gila,
near Gila Bend.
Personally Governor Powers hae an
attractive presence; ho is well known
throughout tho county. Ho is combat-
ivo and energetic and wlU'leave far be
hind in tho political race Mr. 0. Meyer
Znlick, of New Jersey.
.IOSK1M1 II. Mlfl.I.KN.
J. B. Mullen, nominated for Assembly
man, is a man of mature years, having
been Iwm in Iowa in 1812. Adventur
ous ill his youth ho emigrated to Cali
fornia in 1800, and engaged in ntock
raiying and farming in Butto and Sail
Jomi counties. Ho came to Arizona in
1885, and has since been a resident of
Tempo, farming a largo tract southeast
of that placo, as woll as attending to a
considorablo band of cattlo grazing on
tho Gila River bottoms. Hois a married
man of largo family, and is considered
as one of tho pillars of tho section in
which ho resides. Ho is a staunch and
unswerving Republican and lias over
been an effective laborer in tho politics
of his local county. He is successful as
a business man, keen and yet kindly,
and will bo eminently satisfactory to
Maricopa County as a representative in
tho Sixteenth Legislative Assembly.
i:nviN" s. c.u. i.
Tho second man on the ticket for tho
Assembly, was born in Union county, 0.,
in 1800 and was raised upon a farm, his
lifo being that of tho usual farm boy in
that State, his winter months being
spent in school. His father dying
before ho could go to college, young Gill
was compelled to shift for himself and
entered tho ofilco of tho Richwood
Gazelle as a printer's apprentice work
ing tho first year at $2 per week. Hav
ing a desire for newspaper work ho
turned his attention to that and after
scvoral years scrvico on country papers
in both Ohio and Michigan tried metro
politan journalism commencing as a
reporter in Detroit from whence ho
went to Cincinnati and was there ad
vanced in his profession until ho
occupied one of tho editorial chairs on
tho Cincinnati Evening Pint. Ho first
camo west in 18S5 and has hold various
positions on different papers in Cali
fornia, throughout which State ho is
well known, his last work thero being as
Managing Editor of tho lxs Angeles
Tritiune, which paper he raised from a
secondary position to the foremost paper
on tho Pacific Coast, outsido of San
Francisco. His work einco coming to
Arizona and founding The Rkpuiiucan
is too well known to need any com
ment. Mr. Gill is a man whoso success
in life is entirely due to his individual
efforts and the same energy that has
ever maiked his career will bo devoted
to his party tiiis fall in theadvauccment
of tho entire ticket.
JOHN II. MONTtJOMKUY.
The Republican candidato for Sheriff
is a man of whom nothing derogotory
can be said. On the contrary, volumes
might bo filled with records of his good
deeds and the golden opinions of his
fellow citizens. He has occupied such a
prominent, yet unostentatious part in
this community for so many years that
all have found an opportunity to admire
alike his rugged simplicity and his sterl
ing and unfaultcring integrity.
Ho is now in his sixty-fourth year,
having been born in Macon County,
Illinois, in 1820. He camo West in 1853
and mined for several years in California,
going thence to Idaho, where lie engaged
in mining and stock raising.
Ho came to Arizona in 1804, prospected
and placer mined for a while, encounter
ing fearlously tho savages who lurked at
that date in every rnvino surrounding
Prcscott. In 1808 ho moved to Phumix,
and has sinco been a resident upon his
now valuable farm, located just North
of Phoenix and enbracing 200 acres. He
has made agriculture and dairying pay
and is now one of tho wealthiest mem
bers of our community.
Ho has served several terms as Super
visor of tho county and in that arduous
and important ofilco has shown himself
possessed of executive talent of no mean
order. His blood is up, he will throw
himself into the campaign to win and
win ho will. Aided by tho votes of his
thousands of friends, John B. Mont
gomery will step into tho ShcrifPs oflico
on the first day of tho now year and will
institute reforms in Court House
management that will moro than meet
with tho approbation of every tax payer.
rilANClS A. SHAW,
For Treasurer, one of tho strongest
men in tho Republican party has con
sented to mako tho canvass. F. A.
Sliaw, than whom no citizen can bo
more highly esteemed, is a tower of
strength to his party and will assist in
its victory in November.
He is a native of Tennessee, and is
now In his fifty-eighth year. Ho was
early identified with frontier progress,
joining tho great exodus to California in
1850. Ho mined and farmed in Cali
fornia and Nevada until 1870, when he
traveled across tho deserts to cast his
lot in tho Salt River Valley.
During his first year's residence here
ho was appointed by Governor A. P. K.
Saffbrd as a member of the first Board
of Supervisors of Maricopa County and
assisted at tho county's organization in
1871. At tho succeeding election ho
was elected Supervisor, after which for
a timo ho was District Court Clerk
under Judgo Tweed. Subsequently ho
was with John Y. T. Smith in McDowell.
Returning to Pluunlx ho was ap
pointed County Treasurer, to succeed
John W. Owens, deceased, and was
afterward elected to a term in tho oflico.
On tho death of J. W. Shoomaker, he
resumed his old position of Clerk of tho
court, retaining it until 1885, when ho
resigned to cultivate a fine farm, upon
which ho now resides, east of I'hcenix.
Ho also found timo in 1881 to administer
tho ofilco of Mayor of Phoenix, which ho
did with honor. Ho has a wifo and
threo children, and is a firmly fixed
pillar in Maricopa County.
WALTKIl 8. JOHNSON.
Tho Convention made a happy choice
when its proforenco fell upon such an
excellont citizen of Tempo for tho office
of Recorder. Walter 8. Johnson is a
young man eminently qualified for tho
position to which he has a laudable
aspiration, and if push in the campaign
and true worth will count, ho will surely
win tho fight. Ho is 31 years of age,
camo here from Chicago seven years ago
and has sinco been prominently identi
fied with tho mercantile interests of
Maricopa County. For most of tho timo
ho has been engaged in tho lumber busi
ness nnd for nearly four veins lias hud
chargoof II. W. Ryder's establishment
at Tempo. Ho was iwinnly pushed by
his local delegation.
Tho nominco for Assessor is a Mil Id
citizen of high north, who has been u
resident of Arizona sinco 1870. Ho
camo hero from Philadelphia, in which
city ho was born in 181(1. Mr. Gray has
been all his life engaged in commercial
puisuits and is now connected with T.
J. Trask. Ho is a conservative business
man, of unblemished character. Ho is
justly appreciated by many friends and
will poll a heavy vote. If vent and
activo campaigning will gain n placo
then tho responsible placo of Assessor
will surely bo filled by tho Republican
Tho nominco for District Attorney, is
a gentleman who has won distinction
both as a counselor and as a barrister.
Eloquent in his pleadings and deoply
read in tho law, ho has commanded a
high jiosition among the attorneys of
this county sinco his arrival hero over
four years ago. Ho is now in luma,
whero ho is engaged upon ono of tho
most important cases of tho year, and
the nomination camo to him without
solicitation and will be a surprise to
him. Nevertheless he is too good a Re
publican to not prcparo for tho fray and
push forward with all his most effective
eloquence and energy to mako for tho
Republican ticket a glorious victory.

For Probate Judge has been nomi
nated a man who, though not long in
this community, has already attached
to himself a host of friends. Jesse B.
Woodward was lwrn in Indiana fifty
years ago. His inclinations early were
fixed upon tho practice of law and for
twenty-five years he has been a practic
ing attorney. For tho major portion of
that period he plead before the courts
ot St. Louis and Memphis, and witii
much success. Feeling tho need of
a balmier air for his family ho located
in Pliienix about two years ago and has
already won for himself n lucrative
practice. Ho iB a clear and logical
counselor in all law matters and Mould
make for Moricopa county a Probate
Judge with whom no fault could be
JAMi:s IT. I'ltl K.ST.
Tho representative given Tempo upon
tho tickot for Supervisor is Jainen T.
Priest. Ho was lxrn in Canada 59
years ago, his parents coming to the
United States when ho was but 4 years
old. He was one of the early settlers in
California and lived there for many
years. Ho came to Arizona in 1871 and
shortly thereafter encaged in the mer
cantile business in Tempo. In 1881 he
retired from storekeeping and has since
cultivated a fine farm of 320 acres west
of Tempo. He is a consistent and stead
fast Republican, and has several times
been honored with local offices, the
duties of which he has discharged with
credit. His precinct is a unit for him
and (-carcely a dissenting vote will be
placed in the ballot box at tho Butte
City in November uixm the candidacy
of J. F. Priest. Ho will Iki elected and
by a strong majority.
I.'. It. KlItKI.ANI).
"Brent" Kirkland, as his familiar
spirits call him, has added strength to
the ticket by consenting to have his
name appear thereon as a candidate for
Supervisor. No ono is better known
from ono end of the county to the other
than is Brent Kirkland and no man who
could have been selected would have
polled a heavier vote. Capable and
painstaking ho will fill the oflico most
Ho is now in tho prime of life. 37
years of age. He camo to Arizona from
his birthplace, Hannibal, Mo., in 1872,
and has sinco that timo been prominent
in all that concerned tho progress of his
chosen home. Ho is an expert account
ant, and when elected Treasurer in 1881
was of incalculable service to tho county
in straightening out a mess of tangled
figures into which tho county books had
becomo thrown. Beside his term in the
Treasurer's office he sorved two as a
Deputy Recorder. He is thoroughly
familiar with the work to be done, and,
if the people .of Maricopa County are
solicitous of their financial welfare, Mill
apply his knowledge to good eflcct in
tho ofilco of Supervisor.
