HIRAM S. STEVENS !
"TRUTH IS MIGHTY AND WILL
This axiom is onp of fho most
. self "evident and sublime that ha
ever been enunciated by man. It
has been handed down through
all the ages, and is as fresh and
true to-day as whn first uttered.

Man, with all the degradation
to which he sometimes descends,
with all the falsehood and chi

resorts to carry a point, is power
less to annihilate truth. He may
by cunning, specious equivocation
and unblushing falsehood, seem
for a time to crush it, but he can
not kill it. It rises a-ain in all
its majesty and power. In the
language of the gifted poet Bry
ant, Truth crushed to earth will rise again,
The eternal years of God are her's ,

When Mr. Stevens announced
himself as a candidate for that

offered by H. S. Fitzgerald was

Let us publish this language.

0. C. BEAN'S ADDRESS.
The Court House was well fill
ed last Wednesday evening to
hear a political address by this
candidate for Delegate to Con
gress. Mr. Bean was well receiv
ed and listened to with marked
attention, as all gentlemen are
who come before a Yuma audi
ence. The address was very long
and owing to the very slow utter
ance of the speaker, rather tire
some, occupying one hour and a
half in the delivery. The speak
er touched upon many import
ant points that must necessarily
claim the attention of any man
who would asDire to represent
the Territory in Congressv such ns
the necessity of a geological sur
vey of the Territory, a school of
mines, Government assay office,
increase of mail facilities, opening
public roads, building the 32d
parallel railroad, the purchase of
the Mexican states of Sonora,Sina
loa and Lower California, making
the United States Government
pajr our citizens for Indian spoila
tions, etc.- etc. The speaker al
luded to Mr. Stevens' posters,
particularly the words "I wiLii
Maintain .the Right," and
"justice to the Territory of Ari
zona and her people, without pre
ference to party or section," as
being the height of sublimity.
Mr. Bean did not deal in words
of detraction 'toward, his oppon
ents. On the whole his speech
was as fair as could be expected
and was frequently interrupted by
applause. The effect of Mr. Bean's
address will be that he will re
ceived several votes that would
have been cast for Smith and one
or two spooneys who would have
voted for old Flardy, but he will
take nothing from Mr. Stevens
"Only this and nothing more."
AND STILL THEY COME !
Another Candidate for Congress.
Charles Trumbull Hayden, (Jeru

drawn out cognomen,) is out for
Delegate to Congress. After an
address to the people, occupying
a whole page of the Tucson Citi
zen, which address puzzled every
body to find the point, and then
they didn't find it, he comes out
