J. W. Anderson, Chairman.
S. B. DeLong, Secretary.
James H. Toole, JohnW. Sweeney
and Judge John S. Braiton, Pima su
pervisors, have actually committed the
horrid frtud of piwiding election pre
cincts for the accommodation of ranch
ers and station keepers. The 1 hari
sees who support Brady are outraged
at this action of the supervisors, as
they seem to be at all just official con

Mucho nos ha sorprendido veer unas
lineas escritas por mano tal vez apa
cionada, en favor de D. Pedro Brady,
mal trasadas y en estilo nade caballe
resco, impropio de hombre3 sensatos,
ilustrados y patriotas, y separandoss
de esactitud en la verdad, con solo la
intencion de criarse partidavios en la

lo3 meritos del Sr. McCormick los par-
titdariodel Sr. Brady, manifistando
a los C.C. palabras empalagosas, gen
eralidades bulgares, jirmas ruine3 ya
gastadas y de muy poco valor.

do pueblo ilustrado solo bastaria para
estarle obligadus al Sr. McCormick,

Congreso Gral, llenando con este he
cho dos deberes; Primero, el de reco-
nocimiento, y Segundo, para obteaer
el bien que nos rciultaria de sus futu-
ros trabajos, por que ha defado en su
primer periodo asuntos interesantes
pendientes, que en el segundo nos da
ra el resultado que deseamos.
El Sr. McCormick por su discurso
pronunciado en la camara de repre-
sentantes en el Congress, 1 1 de Julio
de 1870. intitulado " Socrro para Ari
