"oN good reason can be advanced for placing such onerous conditions upon a Just and deserving people. It may be that the Interest of the nation In its Capital is such that It has a right to reserve for Itself e govern ment of the city But even if yon grant that, you cannot upon v any theory of government Justify or ex cuse our expatriation, and we ar ex patriated when we are denied, as we are, the right to vote for our'Presl dent and the right to representation In th Senate am.
