ACCORDING to late accounts at hand
the late Congressional election in New
Mexico resulted in the choice of S. B
Elkins by a majority of nearly 4,000
over the uresent Delegate J. Ga
In a letter dated August 13, Lieut
Geo. M. Wheeler writes from the
White Mountains, where a part of his
force had been engaged for nearly
month:- "The new discoveries are
certainly promising, and eastern and
central Arizona I feel assured may to
a great extent be occupied at no very
late day by a people prosperous as
agricultural producers and as stock
growers. The view from the summit
of the Sierra Blanca gave one of the
most delightful landscapes that it has
ever been mv fortune to behold. Our
matters progress and we hope to brin
out maps and matters of knowledge
the coming winter."
Judge J. T. Alsap writes Gov. Saf-
ford that their new school-house is
well advanced to completion. The
doors, windows and floors are yet to
be put in, all of which is expected to
be done bv the 15th instant. The
building is 20x30 feet clear on the
inside, and will be so finished as to
make it very comfortable and attract
ive for pupils. The Phenix people
are to bo commended for this good
work, and Judfre Alsap especially,
Joseph Collingwood also writes the
Governor that the public school-house
at .Florence is nearly ready for occu
nation, and that it is largo and will
be very comfortable. The people of
Florence are ju.-tly proud ot their ef
forts to educate their children, and we
have no doubt but they will be more
and more pleased as their labors and
the fruits of the same increase. In
fact, the most cheering accounts come
from all parts of the Territory re
garding the people's interest and pro
gress in promoting public schools.
The military telegraph is progress
ing well and no doubt exists of its en
tire coninletion in 1873. Parties are
now working eastward from San Die
go; eastward and westward from Yu
ma, from Prescott southward, and an
other is expected soon to work west
ward from Maricopa Wells. The ex
pectation is to make the connection
from Prescott and San Diego with
Maricopa Wells at the same time and
thus afford the earliest possible tele
graphic communication between De
partment Headquarters and Wash
ington. After this is done, and pos
sibly before, the lino will be put up
from Maricopa via Florence to Tuc
son. Gen.. Dana, Department Quar
termaster, is using his best endeavors
to complete the whole line by the last
of November, and all hands on the
job are hard at work. Lieut. Trout
in charge of the construction party
from. Prescott had the line completed
to Wickenburg last Monday evening.
Uncle Sam Exhibiting his Elephant.
Agent J. H. Stout started east via
San Francisco about ten days ago.
Ho took with him six representative
men of the Pima and Maricopa In
dians and J. D: Walker as interpreter.
The object of the trip is to show the
Indians Indian Territory with a view
to get their tribes to move thither for
a permanent home. Although the
said Territory lies far west of the Mis
sissippi Valley, it is likely the route
by which it will be reached will take
in New York, Washington and other
prominent cities. Although conduct
ing Indians- over the country is not
enviable work, we still congratulate
Messrs. Stout and Walker for they
will or can. have a " good time " at
Uncle Sam's expense ;. and this old
relative is accustomed to fooling away
his funds on many other as unpromis
ing ventures. But the noble red man
is an olephant which our kind Uncle
foels obliged to exhibit now and then
at his-own expense. This exhibition
will probably not cost more than 50;-
000, and that's not much considering
the imaginary good- which most likely
ANOTHER YEAR CLOSED.
This number closes the third year
of The Arizona Citizen. Like the
business and taxable property and
population of Pima county, it has
about held its own during the last
year. What profit it has made for
the proprietor has been expended in
adding now material to the office
We would cheerfully enlarge and
print a daily, if such steps in advance
were warranted. But they are not
and the business of publishin
newspaper can only be maintained by
observing those principles by which
merchants, mechanics, fanners and
professional men of sense and success
are governed. If anybody thinks the
newspaper business alone has
swelled in Pima county as to justify
a larger expense than that incurred
by us, he or they can try it on an
can have our concern for what it has
cost us in cash ; and it is with pleas
ure we can state that this office has
ood presses and an abundance of
new news and job type and of fine vu
riety. Last May we purchased one
hundred and ninety-three pounds of
new nonpareil type, thinking to at
once mainly use it in place or our
larger type, and thereby give about
one-quarter more reading matter in
tho same space ; but upon its arrival
here, it was apparent that it would be
an unprofitable increase and deferred
it till the beginning of the fourth
year. In pursuance or that decision
hereafter all letters, extracts from
other papers, locals and tho body of
advertise in en is will appear in the new
and smaller type, thereby giving, as
before stated, about one-fourth more
matter within the same space, thus
adding to our expense in proportion
Men often talk glibly of what others
should do for tho public, especially
when they are to receive the benefit
without a cent of expense to them
selves. If we should suirerest to i
business man of any sense and shrewd
ness that he ought to enlarge his bus
inese, he would regard it as an iinpert
inent act, or at best as one that good
taste and business sense would justify
silence; and we likewise regard mat
ters from our stand-point.
So far as we know now, this con
cern will continue to be conducted m
the same manner and bv the same
roprietor as at present. The Cm
ZEN is firmly established and will bo
enlarged and otherwise improved as
rapidly us the legitimate support for a
local paper in Pima county will jus
tify. With " these few remarks " we
close the third volume of it.
The shipment of freight to Arizona
via Uuaymas is necessarily ended.
The Citizen stated as much on Au
gust 30, and now we are definitely
advised that the Mexican government
has annulled the order of November
1872, and hereafter will require a
strict compliance with the law which
makes it obligatory on the part of
American shippers to procure a per
mit from the City of Mexico before a
free transit of freights can be made.
It being 1500 miles from Guaymas to
tho City and poor means of commu
nication between, the time and ex
pense of procuring a permit assuin-
one would always bo granted on
application will effectually close out
all freighting that way.
