Wo roafflrm nnd ropoat tho platform of the Territorial Democratic Convention ns fol
lows: Actuated by tho plainest dlctatos of self-interest nnd, as wo beliovo by tho loftiest mo
tlyoa of patriotism as well, wo declaro again our Jntenso opposition to the union of Arizona
with New Mexico into ono. stato. Wo further proclaim our unswerving purpose to maintain tho
independence, tho Integrity and autonomy of Arizona by resisting in every logltlmato way
known to freo men tho effort now bolng made by designing persons to Join this Territory In
an unjust, unequal and ruinous union with the overwhelming population of New Mexico, and to
this purpose wo pledgo tho veto of our party In tho coming election. And to securo tho defeat
of this unholy alliance, wo call with confidence on every truo citizen of Arizona of whatever
political party to unlto with us In preserving Inviolato tho laws, customs and Institutions of
our commonwealth from tho exploitation of New Mexico.
Undor hardships and disadvantages unknown to other stato bulldors tho peoplo of Arizona
havo reared a great commonwealth of which they are fond and of which they are Justly proud.
To them alone Is tho honor and glory of this achievement. They havo by exercise of high civic
virtues put Into easy and successful operation every energy of a groat and prosperous stato;
and they look with natural horror on any proposal to violate the promlso mado by Congress to
Arizona in our organic oct; by uniting them again to Now Mexico from which thoy wre, for
potent and proper reasons, separated more than forty years ago by tho Influenco and advice
of Abraham Lincoln.
Patriotism demands opposition to Joint statehood. tand on,thfl.broad prlnclplo of preserva
tion of our commonwealth all political parties can meet, and with, ono. accord, save tho state.
Wo aro unalterably opposed to joint statehood between Arizona ,and Now Mexico, nnd
would prefer to remain a territory forovor than to accept statehood under such conditions.
Wo declaro for an honest nnd equal taxation of all property Justly subject to tho samo, in
cluding mines and corporation without discrimination ln-favor of.'anyono whosoever, so that
tho wealth of tho country may hear Its full proportion of tho, .burdens of government.
Tho Hepubllcan National administration, In its .pernicious efforts to forco Arizona. Into a
union with New Mexico, against practically tho unanimous protest of-lier peoplo, perpetrated
tho groatest political crime In tho history of onr government, and wa'.congratulato tho people of
this tarrltory that through the efforts of our distlngulshoddelegato jt'o Congress, Hon. Marcus
A. Smith, backed by tho patriotic citizens of tho terrltory( this calamity, was averted.
Wo rejolco In tho splendid success of tho unboaten, nnd. unbeatabloV Democrat, tho .Hon
Marcus A. Smith, whoso brilliant service In the, Congress, otahb United States. Is tho possession
and the prldo of tho whole territory, in splto of treachery and unheard -rot' difficulties Arizona,
under his leadership, still retains her Integrity rtnd autonomy. Wo appeal to all citizens of the
territory, Irrespective of party, to lay aside partisan prejudice, and jolnnwith us on tho broad
platform of patriotism and love or Arizona, and return h!m,to tho position ho has so signally
II-. ", . ,
Tho Democrats of Cochlso .County desire to express their appreciation- .of tho patriotic
sorvlco rendered Arizona by Senator J. II. Foraker and other Hepubllcan' Senators who camo
to our aid during tho efforts mado to Join this territory twlth New.MoxIco as ono, stato. Tho
chairman of this convention is instructed to send a copy of this resolution to Senator Foraker.
Wo endorao nnd commend William Jennings Bryan, tho' peerless .leader of tho common
