JOINT RESOLUTION 8.

PROTESTING TO THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENT

ATIVES AGAINST THE ESTABLISHING OF A LEPER COLONY
IN THE TERRITORY OF NEW MEXICO. C. J. R. No. 7;

Approved February 24, 1905.
Be it resolved by the Council of the 36th Legislative Assembly of

New Mexico, the House concurring

That Whereas, we have heard with astonishment and horror that the United States senate has passed a bill authorizing the establishment of a leper colony in one of the territories, and we have heard with dismay that an abandoned military post or forest reserve in New Mexico is intended to be selected for the establishment of such a colony; therefore be it

Resolved. That we as representatives of the people of the Territory of New Mexico, object, protest against and deprecate such action on the part of the senate of the United States and ask the members of the house of representatives where the bill is now pending to oppose it and defeat it, for we consider it an insult that our fair and healthy commonwealth should be chosen by congress as the abiding place for such unfortunates, with all its attendant evils and miserable repute that such an establishment would entail upon our prosperous and growing territory, and

Be it Further Resolved, That we ask the assistance of the honorable speaker of the house and its members to keep from us this bitter cup, following after being denied our just rights to be admitted as a state of the Union, and

Be it Further Resolved, That upon the passage of this resolution the president of the council be authorized to telegraph the same immediately to the Hon. Joseph G. Cannon, the speaker of the house of representatives of the United States with the request that the same be placed before the house.
