An Enraged Woman.
Aa our ubiquitous reporter was
rambling through the spacious
boulevards of the future Capital
of Arizona Phoenix ruminat
ing on the misfortune of his
having incurred the royal dis
pleasure of the non-sectio:ial-johu
marion-pre.scolt-enterprise man for
influencing the Postmaster General
to such an extent as to cause Phoenix
to be sleacted as the general dis

coming from a house close by. Ever

heart who, tiring of the toy

WHOM IT MAY
It is not often that an old citizen
is called upon to vindicate himself
through the public press, especially
as against whom it is presumed to
be a public officer of t'.ie law.
Ingratitude can be frequently for
given when there are extenuating
circumstances, but when from nurs
ing a human being into prosperity,
and as a viper it turns on every oc
casion, and without provocation to
sting. When, under adversities,
one man divides from his substance
to sustain a needy and fallen brother,
and when circumstances have
changed the unfortunate to the high
road of prosperity ; when former
friendships are forgot, aud when
even honor in partizan zeal is sacri
ficed, and when not only ingratitude
but persecution takes the place of
all noble sentiments aud impels its
slave into the most base and iguo
miuious course of abuse ; and when
such a man seeks to foist himself on
tho public confidence, it is time that
the people should be warned of the
villainies and called to avoid the
murky waters of this cuttle fish.
" Mower," when left alone, is an
honest word ; but when added to
" y," is changed at once from the
best of meanings to the worst of
meanings. Xot content with the
financial gain of early association, he
now seeks the degradation of his
former benefactor, and this all
through ring motives 'and political
slaver'. It has even come to such
a pass that all memory of any friend
ly act of assistance, aud even of all
honesty, is a matter of impossibility
to this ring of public pilferous aud
ungrateful scoundrels. This man is
now a public officer, beholden ou the
people for his subsistence, and he
even has the audacity now to pre
sent his influential name to the good
people of this community for re
election, lljiiesty we expect to
find, and shall find, iu some other
man, for the coining office.
