Sir Your Memorialists the legislative As-sembly of thc Territory of Arizona mot respectfully represent That the Territory of Arizona is now a part of tho customs revenue district or New Mexico: and owing to reasons hereinafter stated, the collection of duties through Now Mexican officials is unavoidably attended with great annoyance and expense to our cit izens Firstly: All duties aro required to be pau in com; unu as uie c rcumung mco.u . or Arizona is currency almost exclusively, nulred Tor duties from California at crcat risk and at an exnense or Trom five to ten ner cent according to distance. SKCOKDbr: That our merchanU have no businesa relations with 'New Mexicfi and no mnLlinil nf nmcuriiiir exrhanpA on any nlaccl in that Territory: and exchange on San Francisco not being convertible In New Mex- ico at naf will notbo received by the Col- lector Thirdly: That tho customs Coctor re - r.i.ln,, m,rn . r.nlft rate, thev require unreasonable dopoait of bullion pc currency as security when coin is not on hand: compelling Funics to lose tho use of their money winlcimsy Incur tho risk and expense of sending WitJalifornia for coin A short time since one of our importing firms was compelled to deposit one thousand dol lars in currency m eecurity for the payment of four hundred dollars duties in thirty days. Such cases arc continually occurring and aro productive of much vexation and annoyanc? Fourthly: Tha as Arizona has been sep arated from New Mexico as far m military matters are concerned : and also as a land district, we are of the opinion that this one of the last connecting link" binding the two Torritorios together should be severed for the benefit of both. Thtrtfart your Memorialists earnestly and respectfully pray that you will relieve them from their brtent difficulties by causing tho Territory of Arizona to be made a separate district for the collection of Customs. lUtvtreti by the House the Council concur ring that to promote the object of this Me morial the Secrttarv of the Territory is hcrc- President of the Council.
