"We alluded last Avcek to the brazen falsehood of the Brady party that the Territorial arms had been unfairly distributed that the rich and He Cormick's friends had been favored above the Oury, ATowry and Brady ring. Adjutant General Phelps has since kindly furnished us with a trans cript of his record in the matter, and it shows Gr. H. Oury to have received six. ; Isaac Goldberg, nine ; Goldberg and Co., six; Thomas SI. Yerkes, eleven; D. A. Bennet, one; J. W. Swil ling, ten ; A. J. Ttidge, two ; F. SI. Hodges, two; Sylvester Slowry, one ; L. B. Wooster, two ; &c, &c. But for a lack of " sorts," we would pub lish the entire list, which shows that out of 224 arms and a corresponding amount of ammunition, the Brady men, in proportion to numbers, have had more than their share. "We chal lenge an investigation of the list in our office, or the record of General Phelps. The truth is, that when arms were sought by individuals the questions of their wealth or poverty, their prefer ence for or against Brady, were never thought of or considered ; and, further, during the time when the arms were mainly distributed, there was not a stronger advocate of McCormick' a re election? in Arizona, than P. li. Brady. The Adjutant General is responsible for the return or the arms and the on ly condition upon which they were given out was that of JAic getter's re sponsibility, or some one for him. This condition baing satisfactory, no applicant was ever refused an arm upon application, unless it were at a time when there were none in the ar mory. Gkajtvtlle H. Oury's disqualifica tions for sheriff are treated of by a correspondent. Oury has defied the law and courts by refusing to pay his taxes. He now wants the people to elect hini to a position in which it would be his duty to collect the coun ty revenues. Is a man who success fully evades paying his own faxes, a fit one to collect and handle the taxes of law-abiding citizens V Is it possi ble that the tax payers of Pima county will elect such a man as Oury has proven himself, to the responsible po sition he seeks "? Will property own ers pay their taxes into the hands of a man who has set the example of non payment 'i "Wo believe the voters Avill emphat ically say not on next Tuesday. A vote for Oury for sheriff, is a 'vote in favor of holding property and re fusing to pay taxes thereon. A vote for Ott for sheriff is a vote to abide by the laws as they stand upon the Statute books and. as expounded by the courts ; a vote for Oury is a vote in opposition to this necessary condition of citizenship. Voters Avill bear in mind that the public and private character of H. Ott is without the least blemish. "Will anyone say .as much of Oury? Is there any doubt which sJtoitld be sheriff? Yote the People's ticket and there by condemn the purely demagogic de mand to vote for a man because he is a partisan, in preference to one who is amply qualified for the office he seeks. By voting for Oury for sheriff, the doctrine of refusal to pay taxes, and thereby impoverishing the county and Territorial treasuries is endorsed ; by voting for Ott the contrary is ap proved. EiGUTT-seven votes on Salt River, and an exact canvass shows that McCormick will get one-half, at least. This is fact. To All Tax Payers. The Sheriffalty. Communicated. The coming election on November S, is one of great significance, especial ly to the people of Pima county. There are two candidates in the field for sheriff, asking for the votes of the people. Mr. H. Ott, nominated as the Peo ple's candidate, and Granville H. Oury, who runs as the nominee .of a clique of " 3 times 3," styling them selves the Democracy not only of Pi ma county, but of the whole Territo ry, as well. Let us take into consideration the nomination for sheriff of this immortal nine, who invited Sylvester Jbwry down here from the San Francisco Pacific Glub rooms to run for Dele gate, and afterwards repudiated him. (By the way, itfbwry, we are afraid that you were contaminated by your association, though it might be said that it is hard to spoil a rotten egg.) Granville H. Oury ! "What has he done that we should give him our votes ? and Avhat has he left undone, that Ave should withhold our support ? 1st. Failing to beat JWcCormick in 1868, he was the prime mover in the quo warranto decision as rendered by Judge Backus, by which, as far as in him and his coadjutors lay, the Terri tory was disorganized. 2d. He was the adviser of Secreta ry Gartter, Acting Governor in1869, and by his influence no proamation was issued calling an eleqjfon in that year for county officers, and the elec tion was allowed to go by default. Now as to what has not been done, that as a good citizen he should have been prompt- to perform. In 1S(5S, while the quo warranto case was pending, he refused to pay his taxes on the ground that no nublic of ficers had teen elected according to law. He repeated the same thing in 1869, as the quo warranto decision had not then been reversed ; but when that decision was pronounced not well con sidered and the laws passed by the various legislatures confirmed by the highest tribunal,- did this citizen Oury bow to that decision and pay up his arrearages of taxes ? 2So, sirs, not a bit of it. The execution against him for taxes has been returned (unsatis fied), and G. H. Oury leads the delin quent tax-list to-day, thereby increa sing your burdens and mine and those of every man who honestly pays his taxes. Therefore, Ave Avill here leave him, believing that Ave have stated enough that cannot be successfully re futed, to influence every man that Avill think and reason a moment, that Granville H. Oury is not entitled to his support. So look out, Grant, the Avave is coming that will roll over and carry you doAvn to oblivion, for on next Tuesday, the people of Pima county Avill put the seal of popular condemnation upon you, that all may knoAV hoAV they vieAv your acts, and those of your clique, for the last tAvo years at least. On the other hand, Sir. Ott becomes a candidate for your suffrages, and Avhat are his claims ? Ho is a man of excellent business ability, integrity, and honesty, and that for the number of years ho has resided in the Territory, has never evaded his responsibilities aa a citi zen, and has never attempted to bring anarchy and confusion upon us as a people. FcIIoav citizens of Pima county, look first upon the picture of G. H. Oury, and then upon that of H. Ott, and choose you this day Avhom you will have to serve you and your interests. Mk. Apple arrived in town this Aveek with his train from Wickcnburg. Letter from Phenix. Phenix, Oct. 26, 1870. Editor Citizen : The prospecting party which left here on the 10th, af ter proceeding -to the four peaks, Avere compelled to return, as their party Avas considered by Jir. "Woolsey, the leader, to be too small to proceed farther in safety. Tliis is by no means an aban donment of the prospect, but a post ponement on account of the failure of Caleb Jackson's party to join that of Woolsey at JMcDowell as per agree ment. Woolsey, as avcII as the entire party, is sanguine that rich' diggings "will bo found if a party strong enough to make a thorough prospect can be formed. Building is already commenced on the toAvn site. Capt. Hancock's neAv store is fast approaching completion, and sundry other buildings are soon to be commenced. P. It. Brady spoke to the citizens of Phenix on Saturday. We failed to hear him speak of the wants of the people in this or any other part of the Territory, his time being entirely oc cupied in abusing and falsifying Ifc Cormick, and in telling the people of Salt river that he did not care a damn for them, as he did not live here. jfr. Brady Avill lose, to my knoAv ledgo, several votes that he Arould have got, had ho had the good sense to stay at home and keep his mouth shut. The only good thing Avas said by JUbwry, viz.: That if the Democratic party nominated the devil, it Avas the duty of all true Democrats to support him. 'Whether this Avas intended as a compliment to P. E. B., or not, I can not say ; but one thing I vri'l say, that if there avss any doubt as to Ma Cormick carrying this valley, it no longer exists. C. A. Gila Correspondence. Adamsville, A. T., Oct. 27, 1S70. Editor Citizex : The political cauldron continues to boil Avith una bated vigor, and discussions of the merits of the riAral candidates are very frequent. The Slexioun element of our place has thoroughly aAvakened to the importance of casting an intel ligent and discriminaiing vote, and as a consequence "are A-ery inquisitive on the point of, Avho is the best man to represent them in the halls of con gress ? By some method of reasoning they have arrived at' the sensible con clusion, that experience in Washing ton is more essential to a candidate than a knowledge of the Spanish lan guage. Assaults on a rival, provoked by the purity of his linen, does not seem to influence them. They, on the contrary, agree that dress and address are both useful at the capitol of the nation. Your paper is sought after eagerly by both Americans and ilfeucans, and the general comment is that it is far ahead of the Arizonan in the quality of its reading matter and its typograph ical appearanc. The course it takes in espousing the cause of Honorable R. C. ilcCorniick meets with the ap probation of everyone. Adamsville. Tns miserable and foolish slanders of the Mowry-Brady party that Mc Cormick opposed the 32d parallel rail road, induced us to surrender much of bur space to his testimony in relation thereto. It completely convicts them of the basest falsehoods or the basest ignorance ; but the campaign has pro ven them guilty of both charges in many other respects. Persistent false hood, vicious personal detraction and inexcusable ignorance constitute their political stock hi trade. The offensive compound Avill not Avin. Carta del Obispo Salpointe al Hon orable R. C. McCormick. Tucson, April 25, 1870. Hon. E. C. SIcCoriucjt, Washing ton, D. C. Honorable Senor: Le soy muy agradecido por la atencion que habeis tenido de tenerme en tanto de lo que podia interesar nuestro territo rio en las questiones que se tratan en el congreso, y particularmente por su ultimo discurso tocante al negocio 'de los Indios. Acababa justamente de llegar do una visita a los indios Pimas, cuando se me fueron remitidas sus considera ciones tan conformes a las necesidades de los Indios y a los deseos de ellos mismos. He hallado entre ellos unos que deseabon tener escuelas para sus hijos, diciendo que se las habian pro metido desde mucho tiempo, pero que ostas, promesas no se realizaban. Era muy justa y muy neceseria esta modi ca apropriacion de fondos que reclama ba al congreso para ensenar nuestros joAenes Pimas. Apruebo igualmente su modo de gratificacion a los Indios ; hacer tra bajar los Indios por esta gratificacion es darles un grande servicio e ensenar les que, trabajando, no necesitarian mas tarde de auxilios ; mientras que las rccompensas gratuitas no hacen mas que favorecer sus viciosyperseve rar en su dagradacion. Honorable Senor, haga oir siempre esta misma voz, y espero que obten dreis algo para ameliorar la condicion de los Indios y al mismo tiempo la nuestra, y si no, tendreis a lo menos la consciencia y satisfaccion de haber complido con su deber. Eeciba, Honorable- Senor, la segu- ridad de me profunda respecto y con sideration. J. B. Salpoin'te, Bishop. IA VSItDAD EN SU X.UGAX. Mucho me ha podido que se diga qu? yo he traido de "Wickenbergla noticie qni el Senor McCormick pronnncio un discur so en aquel mineral en el cnal desprcstiji ava a los Mejicanos, y como he oido una divcrsidad de cosas en cste respecto en las cuales ni yo he sonado me apresuro a ha cer saber al publico cnal cs la verdad eji su lugar. . Muy sierto es que yo asisti al discurst- snbsodicho, pero tambicn lo cs qne no lo entendij.por no poseer el ingles ; conclui- do el discurso me dijo una persona, que cl Senor McCormick se habia espresado muy mal cneontra de los Mejicanos en gral. Tambicn so me hapreguntado quien fue es ta persona que mi hizo tal informe y he dicho que es un sujeto tan-partidario dc D. Pedro Brady como el mismo. Ami poco me importa como Mejicano sus encstiones electorales, por consiguien te, como he oido las altcraciones que si haeen de lo que fue en realidad ylo que yo dije, suplico a esas personas que no to men mi nombre como instrumento para dar fucrza al partido de Dn. Pedro Brady y des prestijiar al Senor 'McCormick, o viseversa. J. M. Baldexsgro. Cuidense de Falsedndes. Aqui esta Una. Cierta muy astuta persona so ha oc upado en circular el falso informe en tre nuestros ciudadanos Jjfejicanos que Mr. -T&Connick hablo de una manera demasiado libre y descortes contra !o jyejicanos en su discurso pronunciado en Wickenburg. Estamos autorizados por un testigo ocular que lo es tambien uno de los oyentes, de decirque el entero resumcn es una calumnia y una falseda'd, y aseguramos ademas que los partidos que tal resnmenhan hecho sr.ben bien que es falso. With Brady in Congress, Arizona would get nothing from government during hit term, except that obtained by his oppo nents. He has never helped Arizona abroad, and never will. Brady is now managed by Mowry, ami if elected, Avould be subject to the same control.
