fact to that body ; nnd whereas, nt a subsequent
convention in Mesilla on the 19th June, 18JD,
the 1.1018 fact) wero reiteritod anJ urged with
additional force, the necessities of the country
requiring it with greater reason than heretofore,
by the augmentation of population anil tho In
traduction of capital employed in silver mining
and stock railing, increasing as a consequence
to a considerable degree, the commerce of the
country, without the protection of any civil or
ganization whatever, and whereat, at each of
the aforesaid ineotings or conventions, it wn.'
solemnly resolved and published to the
world that no part would henceforth bo ta
ken in tho territorial elections of New Mexico,
and whereas, at a later convention held in Me
lilla on Sunday, the 7th day of August, 1839,
at which the precinct of Mesilla and the other
small towns on the western bank of the Hio
Grande only had representation, Dona Ana and
Las Cruccs, in conjunction with the west-rn
portion of Arizona, Tusson, Tubac, Sonoita val
ley, Arivacca, Cjrro Ciloradj, Gila City, an 1
Arizona City, withdrawing upon a refusal of
said convention to allow thum tho proper rep
resentation, actuated by sentiments of private
animosity, and overcome by the honied words
of tho political emissaries of New Mexico, a res
olution was passed rescinding and annulling the
pi:ie lings and sentiments of all previous
meetings, and declaring their intention to take
part in the contest between Mr. Gallego and Mr.
Otero, and against the latter, as well as appoint
candidates for tho Senate, House of Represen
tatives, Prefect, Sherill". Justice of the I'cacc,
and Constable for tho territory of Now Mexico,
and whereas, a respectable portion of this com
munity diipprove in toto of tho proceedings of
the last mentioned convention, and have deter
mined that they will nut submit to the declara
tion of a party standing upon a basis so un
sound therefor, it is '
' IUaolved, 1st That wo believe firmly in the
honesty and correctness of purpose which has
governed all previous cenventions held by the
people of Arizona, tn which they have declared
separation from New Mexico inevitable, mid tho
organization of tho territory of Arizona indis
pensable, and that the determination not lu
take part in the territorial election of New Mex
ico was dictated by the nccessitiel of our situa
tion, and adopted by tbo sober intellig-enco of
the country, and should be adhere 1 to with a
firmness becoming honest men.
2d. That tho convention held in the town of
Mcsilla on the 7th day of Angust, 1859, have
acccedcd tho 'limits of authority in rescinding
resolutions passed in convention of Juno 19th
at Mcsilla, by the united citizens of Dona Ana.
Las Cruces, Mesilla, and the adjacent precinets,
and returned and endorsed by the entire west
ern portion of tbo territory, composed of Tuc
son, Tubac, Arizona City, Gila City, tho Santa
Cruz and Sonoita valleys, and the settlements
of the silver mines of Arivaca Cerro Colorado,
Santa Uitn and l'atngonln, inathe nbsenco of
representation from Dona Ana and Las Cruces,
which was withdrawn, and that of the western
part of the territory aforementioned, which was
unjustly and iniquitously denied,
3d, That it is the duty of this meeting to
take such steps as the circumstances require to
defend the community against the impositions
of a few designing men who have attempted to
fix upon them a set of officers to administer the
affairs of the county, the majority of whom are
incapable from want ef intelligence and moral
honesty' to do justico and credit to the positions,
by selecting In sober judgment such persons as
aro known to possess honesty and iategrity,
coupled with intelligence', to discharge the res
ponsible duties of prefect, thsriff, justico of the
peace and constable.
4th. Resolved, That we adhere to the resolu
tion adopted by a convention of citizens of the
countyof Dona Ana; that they will meet in
their different precincts as requested by tho
